Reacquainting myself with Hugo using bwaycer.github.io/hugo_tutoria

When they say "Hugo has an opinion" (or some variation) it makes me think of Hugo as a judgy Midwestern (USA) Mom who says things like "You can live your life how you want" but in a really condescending way.

> 1.3. Staring at the code
> Regardless of the kind of failure, the first and most effective step is to look at the code. Try to understand exactly what it does for the input that exhibits the failure. Think mechanically about the program---like the computer does, trying not to let assumptions based on intended behavior prevent you from seeing what it actually does. Trace through the program in your mind or on paper for the input that causes the failure.

It took two months for the kids to complete their first grade Thai language curriculum. 🎉

I wonder if they can keep progressing to 6 grade level within a year.

With all the conversation about kids being left behind, people need to ask more about schools holding kids back .

what a stupid fucking name i'd bet you anything that zuckerberg came up with it himself and no one had the courage to tell him

I still miss working on @HPE NonStop™ systems. But I never looked back. Sometimes/days you have to remake yourself. Find your passions and dont limit yourself to just one.

"It’s strange, isn’t it? The ideology of capitalism is that it is a system that generates immense abundance (so much stuff!). But in reality it is a system that relies on the constant production of scarcity.

This conundrum was first noticed back in 1804, and became known as the Lauderdale Paradox. Lauderdale pointed out that the only way to increase “private riches” (basically, GDP) was to reduce what he called “public wealth”, or the commons. To enclose things that were once free so that people have to pay in order to access them. To illustrate, he noted that colonialists would often even burn down trees that produced nuts and fruits so that local inhabitants wouldn’t be able to live off of the natural abundance of the earth, but would be forced to work for wages in order to feed themselves.

Current read is "Glass and Gardens Summers"

The editor, Sarena Ulibarri, introduces the book by explaining how she selected the stories for the anthology. The stories she selected didn't need to be about or to be , "but I tried to choose stories that depict adaptation and compromise rather than destruction and conquest, stories that value empathy and cooperation over greed and competition."

Finished up the dialog system for Clive Starts Here, my current game project.

It feels like quite a victory because (for various reasons) I've had to recode it three or four times now. This version is easily the lightest, most comprehensive, and cleanest.😂

Listening to MF Doom and learning about vim markdown plugins.

From a while ago, but I'm pretty happy with it.

Aesop Rock swears within the opening half minute 

I love Aesop Rock's music -- he's got a smooth, complicated flow and his beats are amazing. But I especially love his experimental film-making with his music videos.

This one in particular I love because I want to do it.

Does it show up all glitchy for anyone? (example in the replies)
