The unfortunate bit about the engine is that if you edit the dimensions of the map directly via the file, it gets corrupted.

This makes it really hard to edit the map via text editor, which means that I've failed my goal. The thing is though, the way I'm doing it now seems like the best way it could be done.

Maybe I could have done a multi-page CSV file, but is that really any better?

To progress any further, I need to draw at least one map.

I might be able to write a game engine in ncurses, but asking me to do anything remotely creative is just too far beyond my ability.

I've had an idea of a free, open-source and decentralized sandbox game that would be very customizable. Should I try to make something like this? Even if I am pretty dumb and don't know much things, it would be good to do something, make mistakes and try to fix problems by myself...

Is it worth the time?

Someone asked me what the worst game I ever designed was and it’s obvious.

I once wrote a game about dentists where action resolution involved putting four fingers from each hand in the other players mouth.

It’s not only my worst game, but the worst game!

Once again I want to interact with my org-mode files remotely and once again I'm reminded that as awesome as org-mode is,. there's no really good way to do this.

The best I've come up with is to store them on some sort of shared storage and have a web server that interacts with them, while hoping and praying that every aspect of this syncs and merges correctly.

Chatty on our image for @PINE64 #PinePhone / #PinePhonePro has been upgraded to 0.6.0 and MMS is now available!

To install run `sudo pacman -Sy mmsd-tng chatty` and then reboot.

You can then go to options and setup MMS, configuration depends on your carrier.

Amazon does this weird thing that when it can't deliver they sometimes send my package to a random address from my previous deliveries.

So my rice cooker was delivered to my girlfriend's grampa's house.

More fun publisher surveillance:
Elsevier embeds a hash in the PDF metadata that is *unique for each time a PDF is downloaded*, this is a diff between metadata from two of the same paper. Combined with access timestamps, they can uniquely identify the source of any shared PDFs.

A teacher friend just got a notification her music class has to cancel so she can cover for another sick teacher, but she put her own sick absence in the system minutes before that. Their principle is home with Covid and there's no vice-principle. But hey schools gotta be open?!?!

Excellent reporting today from #ProPublica as #DataPrivacyWeek continues. From the author:

"Companies are leaving so much data exposed online with little or no security that stealing sensitive personal info is becoming the equivalent of grabbing jewels from the seat of an unlocked car in a high-crime neighborhood."
