I bought Detroit[1] game.

I like it very much, it is a visual narrative with some QTE (which you might botch and it will move the story forward).

Story is about a bunch of Androids that (I guess) gain/prove their consciousness.

Graphics is very good, I love textures of faces (best I saw in games so far).

CW: So far generally abuse (including child harm), also death. However no pointless violence and/or gore.

Netflix bought all Ghibli movies. But somehow they didn't release yet two best ones: Mononoke and Nausicaa.

Watching Nausicaa, and the reading the comics was a transformative experience for me.

I'm reading two books in parallel one is "Parable of Sower" by Octavia E. Butler the other is "Fall" by Neal Stephenson.

I can't shake the feeling that they are telling story of the same* Armageddon, but one from the perspective of 1% of tech bros (tech persons?) other one from the perspective of 99%.

In the Fall they even ride through "Ameristan" rural, "crazy", part of the USA.

* obviously causes od the armagedon are different somewhat but its still similar enough.

Parable of the Sower first chapter or two 

Eliza slight spoilers 

I bought "Eliza" a visual novel by Zachtronics. Very good story about living in it burnout, crunch, AI, therapy.

Protagonist started work as Eliza proxy (person interact with costumer undergoing a therapy session led by AI bot Eliza).

So far the story is great 10/10.

Q: How many C++ programmers it takes to change the lightbulb?

One of the most unsettling books I read depicted hell as a scientific conference about: "motif of the final judgement in art". But the coffe was stale, food was bad, speakers presentations were mostly nonsense, and mandatory.

I did read it during a scientific conference of course. Also author is a biophicisist, so it check out.

// I was alphabetizing my book collection so maybe I will share some weird stuff.

Polish Politics // LGBT discrimination // sad // funny kind of sad // quotations of discriminatory words 

I've been reading a webcomic: "Always Human", it's a romance story set future. I liked the art, character arcs, world. Whole story is very warm.

I usually dislike romance stories, but here characters are actually are behaving like adult persons so no angst inducing moments for me there.

So here is the link: m.webtoons.com/en/romance/alwa.

It also will be released as book (and I intend to buy it).

I'm finishing "The Killing Moon" by N. K. Jemisin. So far I like it, not as much as "The Broke Earth Trilogy" but still good.

Mild swearing // dropping PHD // Family 

I dunno if this is a worthy achievement, last year I did submit two articles the WTF daily and they both got published. (Both wtfs were in the third party code bur still).

Całe oprogramowanie trzyma się na ślinę i gumę do żucia.

Trafiłęm właśnie na buga w który powoduje że zmienne JSON tj:

> VAR: '{"foo": []}'

konwertowane są do niepoprawnego JSON tak:

> {'foo': []}

kiedy np. trafiają do szablonów.

Legitne rozwiązanie (poza upgrade ansible i grzebaniem po globalnej konfiguracji dla projektu) to zmienić zmienną na:

> VAR: ' {"foo": []}'

Wtedy ansible/Jinja2 nie wykrywa że to JSON więc go nie psuje.

🤦‍♂️
