I and my little band of misfits finally did Praetorium together! This is my first time and two of the rest of us were doing the new version for the first time, so this was a special occasion for all of us.

So glad we could play a game as awesome as together.

If you download an indie game for free and you end up enjoying it, consider sending a tip to the developer, if they take them. Just send what you think it's worth. Making a video game, even a very simple one, is very difficult and time-consuming. Be a part of making someone's dream come true.

Alright I’m finally pushing forward with a new desktop after my current rig’s near 10 years of service. Since this is the first primary rig that can handle some steep gaming that I will be using linux first and windows in a VM at most, what’s the current linux gaming meta, especially for distros that work well with steam and proton?

If you ever get the idea that you might want to stream any RPG thing I've written, let me know.

I like to think I'm approachable, and I can hook you up with art assets download keys for giveaways, etc. etc.

(Historically, I only find out my games were streamed after it's already happened, so...)

, I come to you in my time of need.

I keep waking up with mosquito bites. I am fed up with it. I spent a bunch of money on a trap that supposedly works on mosquitos and it doesn't do shit.

I need to know how to kill mosquitos. I don't just want them gone, I want them dead. I'm not dealing with blood sucking West Nile having bastards invading my home while I sleep.

apple's official self-repair kit, reviewed by The Verge 

theverge.com/2022/5/21/2307905

"The single most frustrating part of this process, after using Apple’s genuine parts and Apple’s genuine tools, was that my iPhone didn’t recognize the genuine battery as genuine. “Unknown Part,” flashed a warning. Apparently, that’s the case for almost all of these parts: you’re expected to dial up Apple’s third-party logistics company after the repair so they can validate the part for you."

"The more I think about it, the more I realize Apple’s Self-Service Repair program is the perfect way to make it look like the company supports right-to-repair policies without actually encouraging them at all. Apple can say it’s giving consumers access to everything, even the same tools its technicians use, while scaring them away with high prices, complexity, and the risk of losing a $1,200 deposit. This way, Apple gets credit for walking you through an 80-page repair, instead of building phones where — say — you don’t need to remove the phone’s most delicate components and two different types of security screws just to replace a battery."

Found a 6-year-old unfinished roguelike game project of mine while moving old backups.

Exploring randomly generated places while fighting monsters will never get boring for me.

This is worth sharing.

It's an animated GIF where every frame is a valid QR code that leads to the "Never Gonna Give You Up" rickroll.

That's kind of amazing.

Another addition! This time in ✨ 3D ✨

It needs polish, as you can see it has some weird frames in there. But a start is a start! #gamedev

Capcom VS SNK: Millenium Fight 2000

oh my god, I just realized that if a solar storm hits the Earth and our electrical networks get cucked all of the data that people were storing on "the cloud" is just GONE. I mean it'll probably still be on some hard drive somewhere but it will be inaccessible to the people that need it. Considering how much super vital data is stored on the cloud, that's probably in the top five most terrifying things I've ever thought of.

Of course, pinebooks don't have branding on the back, and that means I get a free space to mess with heads.. maybe if passerby see this stenciled on the back they'll have a laugh.

Okay, brain, let me get this straight.

On days when I have a normal shift the next day and can stay up you get tired at 8 pm.

On days when I have to go to bed at 7, which we've done the same two days every week for three years, you don't get tired until 1 am and trigger panic attacks to stop me from getting any rest.

Why?

@swashberry @swashberry I work heavily off relational memory when I’m asked to visualize, so I try to bring to mind all the sensory details from a relevant memory since they help me complete the picture. That makes it easier both to recall and to composite, since my mind can think about how the senses interact in creating an object and about how things like light might affect something.

Part of that is something I’ve always done (the other senses part), and part of it was trained into me when I started drawing. The first formal assignment I got in drawing was ‘draw a box’ and the lesson accompanying it was that most people tend to draw their mind’s symbol for an object, in this case the typical mathematical cube you think of, instead of what their eye is actually relaying to them, the actual imperfections, folds, angles and perspectives of a box.
