i think fedi is legitimately better than other social media because the more you use it, the more it encourages you to not need it anymore. commercial sites literally do everything they can to get you to spend as much of your time on them as you can by making you as miserable as possible. fedi on the other hand draws you in by making you believe in the world outside. if you jump in whole-heartedly enough it will spit you out as someone else, if not somewhere else

And that wraps up this round of edits for Pixelle's route! 100%

I can feel the morale boost from hitting that milestone.

Up next, Robyn's route! Resuming from the 37% point. Thankfully, their route is only about 60% as large as Pixelle's and makes it less daunting. One pomodoro at a time.

Wish me luck!

hi does anyone have the ability to teach/know of good resources (i.e. *you* learned from it) for learning 3D model design for 3D printing?

No teacher is going to pop-quiz you on the books you choose to read as an adult.

Proud of myself for letting go of a book that I wasn't enjoying and wasn't finding useful, despite it seeming like one I "should" have been reading.

Ironically (for this book), my meditation practice helped me distinguish between the near identical feelings of "I'm uncomfortable with this book because it's not for me (among other things)" and "I don't want to read this because it will challenge me in ways I'll find uncomfortable in the moment." Such an important distinction.

More progress on Pixelle's route!

Ended up adding another significant chunk of prose.

Letting your work "rest" for a time makes such a difference. It gets you out of your head and helps you see where past-you went too deep and overlooked the need for more context.

Even with the new lines, that brings the progress meter on Pixelle's route from 87% to 92%! Yay!

car culture exists so corporations can treat driving like a natural thing that you should be ready and able to do for free and at your own risk rather than pay you a wage for literally operating heavy machinery that requires licensing and maintenance

so tired about US tech people posting about covid19 contact tracing apps. they don't work, they never worked, they haven't worked anywhere. the solution is not more tech the solution is public healthcare and giving money to people to stay home. stop making apps

@robf imo it's vital to put a public domain character in your video game at least once, just so you can understand the value of the public domain and how fucking sick it would be if we had reasonable copyright laws

The three main bits of videogame advice that have stuck with me are

1) always "power ups" never "power downs"
2) never reverse the controls

Both from Yak, and

3) you can just put Sherlock Holmes in your game if you want

Damn but I've been good about my BuJo lately. The new morning routine really helps.

Your irregular reminder that wage theft is one of the biggest crimes in our country, but it's not a criminal offense. Because capitalism controls our country.

people act like americans dont follow medical expertise because they are stupid but i think the real issue is that people dont trust the medical system because they are so used to the for profit system fucking them over

the reason giant mech pro wrestling is a good idea is because you get all the beauty of overdramatic mech fights, with the incredibly stupid weapons and the overdramatic poses

but you don't need the military-focus vague facism gun adoration. hell you can still HAVE guns and explosions but now they become precision weapons of drama instead of murder

and yet you get the SAME DUMBASS STORYLINES

imagine unmasking someone a masked fighter by ripping them out of their cockpit. that's fuckin cool

Thinking of coining the term "humane game development" to capture the idea that making games, especially video games, needn't require heroic effort (or villainous mismanagement).
