me: Hey brain, it's 2:20 am, so we're gonna go to sleep now, ok?
brain: actually, remember when you were 14, and dropped some soda on a girl, and when you were apologizing trying to get her jacket clean she shouted that you were rubbing on her boobs and you wanted to die of embarrassment?
brain: Yeah, I thought this would be a good moment to bring that up, _twenty_years_later_. Aaaanyway... see ya!
Hey, the game company I work for is looking for a 3D Technical Artist! DM me if you want me to put in a good word for you! https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/med/d/game-studio-seeking-technical/6738461513.html
Moving to Sweden had an unexpected advantage: I can now feel proud of giving money to my ISP https://torrentfreak.com/swedish-isp-protest-site-blocking-by-blocking-rightsholders-website-and-more-181102/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
It's sometimes difficult to feel proud when working for a big company. But today I am, thinking that more and more women are joining our team, and choosing to stay here.
When I joined 2.5 years ago there were 4 women on a ~80 people team. Now there's 15, and the number keeps growing.
Still a fucking long way to go, but the direction and pace are looking great!

"I'll just check Mastodon one more time before going to bed...
Of wait, a new tiling WM for Wayland, and it has good HiDPI support? I gotta try this!
Must install dependencies...
Crap, needs a libjson-c version newer than what my Ubuntu has.
Hey, it's October already, shouldn't Ubuntu 18.10 be released already?
Oh yes, it is! Let's upgrade!"
I'm going to bed at 3am today, aren't I? 🤦♂️
Gaming industry, overtime Show more
Considering the news about Rockstar's insane working hours, I feel oddly privileged about not having worked a single extra hour in the 2.5 years I've been working at Frostbite.
In fact, I was explicitly banned from working overtime once. My manager came to me and said "if you burn out helping this game team, it'll take you months to recover and other games will suffer. We're in this for the long run. Don't burn out"
(Also, psst! The Stockholm office is hiring!)
