My friend played a Halloween prank on his wife with his smart home.

But it turns out he set it to repeat and can't figure out how to turn it off. So for the last 8 months, every Saturday night at 11:50PM their lights dim and turn red while Thriller starts playing.

Don't be fooled by Google's attempts at privacy washing. Notice not one announcement says Google is going to collect less data about its users. Misleading by design might be a better catch phrase.

I hate windows without title bars. Whoever came up with this "innovation" (which makes it harder to switch between windows, and to drag windows) has set back human-computer interaction and made things worse.

Screens are bigger than ever, we don't need those 16? 20? pixels back.

I hate Java development with the white-hot rage of 1000 suns. How did this nonsense ever get popular for anything?! Stupid Enterprise...

Skelly is now ported to Python and Pygame, faster than expected. Taking the rest of the afternoon to read and slack off.

I've passed the half-way mark on porting Skelly from Löve2D and Lua to Pygame and Python 3. I've decided to go for it because Python is (for me at least) a much better development/debugging environment.

The biggest amount of coding is going to have nothing to do with the game engine anyway, so I might as well use my preferred language, right?

Dresses and skirts with pockets.

Boost if you agree.

Currently investigating Pygame, which is sort of like I remember it. It doesn't handle text well, and seems less capable than Löve2D. But, I really like Python... I might be more productive, and I might find more useful libs to use.
