Do you need a superclass there, or just a common interface?

The enchanter summoned four warriors; a tiger, a leopard, a puma and... a skinny black house-cat, with a white mitten.

The enchanter scoffed, unimpressed. Well, three warriors would suffice, surely, they thought, shooing away the diminutive feline.

The enchanter jabbed a commanding finger towards the dark cave and the bigger cats stalked confidently, obediently, forward.

After all, what was more powerful than they three..?

Questions they tell you to ask if you find a dead body:
- Is the person really dead?
- Is whatever killed them still around?
- Is it your problem?
So far, all affirmative. Now, a question nobody did ask you to consider, but which you can't avoid:
- Is it your body?
Well, fuck.

okay i feel like i should clarify: boy scout troops are determined by what the parents want them to be, and then the kids who want to be there for the same reason the parents do stay and the kids who don't slowly get pushed out. so if you're like "i wasn't there for bad reasons" no i'm not saying that i'm saying ur friend's dad was a facist and he wanted a little mini army of facists

It's entirely too easy (especially for stakeholders) to mistake an exacting and refined user interface for an optimized user experience.

If anything, they have a negative correlation.

Actual users care about how long they have to stay in your app before they can get on with their day. They don't give a hoot about the slight misalignment of that one button.

Started a new job yesterday, realizing I'm only two days into this and while I think this new job is. . . more my speed, it's also means I'm starting to feel more disconnected that usual.

Need to make sure I make some time to video call my people.

I should not be crying from over-socialness on my week off, what the fuck, brain.

I have learned that fighting the universe is often a losing proposition.

"Oh!" said the robot, "I have misunderstood. I assumed 'non-binary' referred to all people with biological brains."
"Not quite as many as that," xe said with a smile, "but more than many think."

I made a game for the GMTK Game jam! It was written in on top of ppb 0.9.0 and packaged with Beeware!

Only a windows build currently:

pathunstrom.itch.io/smugglers-

(Note it's a 48 hour jam, no it's not as "done" as I'd like. Feel free to ignore the donation, I'm practicing putting value on all of my work.)

I'm in year five of building my game engine. I started it to solve my own problems, but ultimately, the reason I kept working on it is that I had a very different vision for how python game engines should be.

It's okay to try to make a library that is better than the one you learned on, but it's a lot road and the grand majority of it is something you do alone.

If you're going to build a competitor, that's what you're signing up for. Knowing that has power.

It is not necessarily that that library maintainer is smarter or better than you: The difference is they've already put in the time so you don't have to.

Side boob, selfie, mask 

Not working means only enough clothes to feel comfy.

I'm really appreciating witchcraft as the tool of changing your own perception right now.

Game jam update: All the basic mechanics are in place. Working on adding the timing and scoring systems. Then make it actually have multiple levels?

I think I'm actually going to finish a game jam for once.

Wow, I'm game jamming and _enjoying myself_.

What terrible magic is this?

🤦‍♀️ This was supposed to include "sign me the fuck up"
