absolutely losing my fucking mind at this video from the wikipedia page for the physics engine "phyz"

My mother in law has such a sense of cleanliness that she just took out a half-empty garbage bag because it was, and I quote, "too dirty on the inside"


You know how in games you get environmental storytelling? Like a "Happy new year 1958" sign in a Bioshock game, so you deduce something bad happened that day?

Today in Spain I saw several shops still decorated with Easter bunnies. In July.

is there such a thing as an ephemeral SD card that is backed by RAM rather than flash memory?
that is to say, non-persistent storage, useful only as a "ramdisk" of sorts for temporary files and/or swap.
i guess this applies to anything that can be wired up to the same pins, so something SDIO but not necessarily the form factor of a (micro)SD would be fair game.
i ask because this would be super useful for swap on a lot of RAM-limited systems where you don't wanna worry about flash write cycles.

I'm figuring out how I'll pay rent next month, so I'll gladly sell art for a reasonable price! Help me pay the bills and I'll help you put art on your walls! Here are a few more from the last few months.

When using a chisel to remove wood, you sometimes get these beautiful feather-like shapes, and I absolutely love them ☺️

Delighted that Mick Gordon decided to put some doom metal tracks into the DOOM Eternal soundtrack. It's just so fitting 😄

Example (first minute):

Self-quarantined for a week alone, with my family stuck in another country... So I'm building a workbench, as one does. Pictured: the first two legs, the bench top on the left, and the big pile of wood chips that I've produced so far

Things to do while quarantined: 

• Meditate
• Plant some seeds
• Read a book
• Clean your bathroom
• Write a novella
• Play chess over the internet
• Marie Kondo your bedroom
• Sing
• Long distance movie night
• Organise your kitchen cupboards
• Go WIkipedia diving and learn something new

"I want to make sure this value is at maximum 16384. So I have to do min(value, 16384)"

I ALWAYS get this wrong. I absolutely always write max instead of min, and fuck up. Just like I just did.

Hello I'm a professional programmer and I've been programming for >20 years. Please kill me

Five minutes ago, my whole neighborhood went out to their terraces or to their windows and started applauding, to thank the health workers the great job they're doing. I'm almost crying.

I've added some "Community Copies" of Glittermitten Grove to our page on If you are experiencing financial hardship of any kind you can grab one for free, no questions asked.

Battery 0: design capacity 7368 mAh, last full capacity 3774 mAh = 51%

Well, that explains why my laptop's battery is always dying so quickly 😩

Covid self-quarantine reminder 

Friendly reminder that lots of fruit and vegetables can be frozen chopped in a ziplock bag. You don't have to survive only on canned food and rice/pasta.

And a bunch of fruits that don't survive freezing well normally, do freeze fine if you put them inside syrup (homemade syrup, from water and sugar). It'll have vitamins, and a hell of a lot of calories!

Shit, I was sent to work from home, but I forgot my plant at the office. It's a succulent, so it's sturdy, but I suspect it might be dried up by the time I can go back to the office 😞

Covid stress 

Fuck, they're declaring state of emergency in Spain 1 day before my family (wife, kid and baby) comes back to Sweden with me. No idea if they'll be allowed to come back.

Fuck fuck fuck

Hardware Acceleration is approximately 9.8 m/s² and is achieved by tossing your computer out the fucking window

@matthewseiji oh crap, I missed this. People are actually developing Eliza-like chatbots and offering them as therapy.

The whole thing sounds like straight out of your game 😕😕😕
