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.

It's not even YOUR music, is it, you just took advantage of contract law to claim exclusivity rights to its distribution and display even though that's a childish and impotent use of state-sponsored force that accomplishes nothing but making your own consumers miserable and resentful!

God DAMN it, UMG, I pay taxes to keep your lawyers fat and happy! Stop preventing me from listening to your music and giving you ad revenue on Discord you greedy money-grubbing douchebags!

One of my pet peeves is when you have a data structure with some members that are connected in some way such that making a change to one must also cause changes to the other, and then you have to write a bunch of getter and setter functions for each of them that keeps all of those changes coordinates.

It's not (usually) difficult to do, but if you have a bunch of members that you need to coordinate in this way it just gets tedious. You feel me?

I got bored and decided to ask what its favorite levels are in classic first-person shooters via .

Pretty interesting how nothing quite looks right but it still nails the aesthetic.

I really don't appreciate how wearing my glasses doesn't improve my eyesight at all, and in fact makes using my computer slightly more irritating, but if I don't wear them I get eye strain headaches.

A friend of mine did a YouTube video a little bit ago about why the system doesn't work. It was informative but also oddly inspiring.

Finished the #gamedev course I've been working a week ago, and today I put it on itch!

It's definitely a WIP, but I'm proud of finally making an FPS where I've written the entire engine.

Here's a fun little trailer I made for the course requirements (warning for kinda loud music):

@mike's recent blog post mentioning old screenshots makes me suddenly wish I had backups from my Linux experiences twenty years ago.

So, I'd like to make a public request for your oldest FOSS screenshots.
Please reply here with alt text describing the programs seen, running, your setup/environment, etc, and put the year in the body/comment.

This should be hella fun.

Just to clarify, I don't DISLIKE anime either, I just don't consider myself a fan of it in general. In my mind it's just a style of cartoon and manga is a style of comic book.

I discovered that you can tell Twitter you're not interested in trending topics and I couldn't be happier.

"Donald Trump did -"
Don't care.

"The state of Georgia is -"
Don't need to know, don't live there.

"The war in Ukraine -"
Ah-ah-ah, fool me once...

"Please care about politics."
Never again.

"Mary Sue" is trending on right now.

Apparently people are salty that people don't like the protagonist of the new Predator movie and are claiming that Ellen Ripley and Sarah Connor would be called Mary Sues today because they're women.

You know, two of the most celebrated and strongest film protagonists in history.

All that talk about being bad for skill might not have been bullshit after all.

You know, the more I consume, the more I think to myself "I'm definitely NOT a fan of anime, per se, but there are a lot of groundbreaking stories that you only ever find in anime and that make me sound like I'm a fan of anime in general."

I'm kind of ashamed that my previous posts complaining about the airport and the number of USB ports on my laptop have proven to be so popular.

I'm gonna go ahead and tell myself that they've gotten so many likes because they're hashtag relatable and I'm not the only crazy bastard who thinks one USB port is too few.

I swear if I had more money I would do the build-your-own-PC thing just so I could decide how many fucking USB ports I would have. I would put 10 USB ports into that thing. Do you know why? SO I WOULD NEVER BE IN A SITUATION WHERE I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH!

Seriously, FUCK the laptop industry these days. Fuck all of you twats and your "if we dream real hard eventually everything will be Bluetooth" bullshit. Give me my goddamn ports!

I would love if I could plug in my keyboard and my mouse at the same time. That would be super duper awesome. Maybe one day computer technology will progress so far that we will be able to handle this technical marvel without having to buy a FUCKING USB C ADAPTER THAT NEVER EVER WORKS PROPERLY GOD DAMN MOTHER FUCKING SON OF A BITCH

Random thought: International airports are considered international jurisdiction, which means they're subject to international law rather than local law, with the exception of the TSA being allowed to touch your balls and snoop in your bags. That's why Edward Snowden and a couple of other people were able to take asylum in airports.

I think this technically means it's always legal to be naked at the airport.

I've decided not to test this theory.

Is there anything more infuriating than being stuck in a large line of people who are all taking their sweet-ass time?

How about billions of dollars of taxpayers' money being used to fund international airports that don't have enough seats for people to sit in while they wait for their flights?

It's interesting how the media has this icy-hot thing going on where they depict Russia as incompetent and comical but also a direct and present threat to not just Ukraine, but the West in general and even the very concept of democracy.

Today I learned that it's possible to get a headache from swimming and going down water slides.

I'm not sure if that's a humble brag or if I'm just subconsciously begging the Internet for sympathy, but I think it's pretty interesting nonetheless.
