I've been learning @godotengine@Twitter lately, and re-implementing my Löve2D/PyGame experiments (little demos). You can see the first 20 (or more, depending on when you read this) here: https://github.com/Taffer/godot-experiments
Apparently Visual Studio needs a *34 page* document to explain its licensing: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Visual-Studio-Licensing-Whitepaper-Aug-2020.pdf And we still had to ask someone for help understanding it.
Turns out, the M1 Mac mini was going to sleep because the screen was off. While trying to build code and run tests. After fixing the power settings, it's going nice and fast.

I've been using an M1 MacBook Pro for a few days:
* the TouchBar(TM) remains a stupid gimmick, I'm glad they separated the Esc key and Power/fingerprint sensor
* it's nice and smooth, even with Intel binaries
* Apple's dev environment continues to frustrate me, and I'm not even trying to use Xcode
* stereo separation on the built-in speakers is fantastic, they sound really good
Impatiently waiting for Apple to get around to releasing a real Pro machine that can handle at least 32GB of RAM though.

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.
