@OTheB @meredith_matthews I might spin up a new map and maayyybe add the warehouse mod. There are so many blobs of resources around I'm not sure I have room for my normal bus, let alone a supermassive one, and I've only gotten to automating red science so far anyway

Hey players, a question for you. I just started my first Bob's game, and like, I'm used to building a huge ingredient buss and branching off from there. Is that strategy even viable in Bob's?

I still don't know much about .net core but someone around here should be impressed.

Today I mostly learned how to set up a microservice API endpoint using Amazon lambda, because i decided to build a comics collection database as a demo app to learn .net core 2, and my company network blocks the comicvine API, so I built an interactive proxy.

Ok, .net core, I am really trying here, but I'm on my third Crud tutorial, and second directly from Microsoft, that fails catastrophically. I'd love to use you for stuff but you're making it extremely hard.

Huh. So Airbnb is basically shit for finding accessible, reasonably priced accommodation. I don't know why I'm surprised.

I swear to God I am this close to becoming that eccentric old lady with 12 cats who binds all her DOM events with custom data attributes.

@annika @meredith_matthews ain't it just? It's a very unusual design, pretty much only pilot and Parker have tried, until some recent entries from Hero of all companies!

@habmala @meredith_matthews thanks! I thought i would regret not waiting to get the medium nib, but this is the best fine nib I've ever met by a long margin

@LN why do Waterman inks always seem to outperform themselves? They're almost always better than I expect

My Grail pen of fifteen years just arrived. It is BEAUTIFUL, it writes like a dream despite being way finer than anything I normally like, it's wet, it's light, I'm in love! Vintage Pilot Myu fine.

I swear to Gawd, in a building full of people demanding to be called engineers, why can't one single person take ten seconds and reattach the chain thing to the handle thing in the toilet instead of staring at it dumbly?

I just polished some nibs for the first time. The improvements were drastic and I feel like I just unlocked the potential for some really expensive hobby upgrades in the future.

I beat Iudex Gundyr, I explored the firelink shrine, I got my ass bit by a skeleton dog, I'm pleased with my evening.

I picked up a game project today that I haven't worked on for 8 months. I read through the code, and I was genuinely pleased with what I found. Now I'm worried that I'm not growing as a person because I don't hate past me.

@grainloom @jamey @meredith_matthews that said, the argument in the essay is compelling. The whole thing is a little silly 😁

@grainloom @jamey @meredith_matthews speaking of, my personal experience is with playing with Racket. I've yet to get the hang of metaprogramming, so maybe I don't even lisp, but I'm willing to buy the js-as-lisp meme simply because it feeeeels the same. Only those two languages give me the same gleeful anarchic joy of diving in, scattering some values around, frolicking through some proceedures and generally writing ridiculous code I refuse to be ashamed of. It's *fun*.
