ds3 spoilers but not really 

it's intensely funny to me that the first thing that the final boss of the dark souls series says "what? still here?"

he's the last boss, and he's asking you why the fuck you're still playing the game.

love to find out that a project that I was reusing code from had two bugs that cancelled each other out

meanwhile in my new implementation I only included one of the bugs, so I ran in to it and spent hours “debugging” it

…before realising that I should just include the second bug in the pair so that they cancel out

weather is warming up, so I've moved to cold brew coffee

I tell ya what, the extra caffeine has me V I B R A T I N G

I don’t get the big deal with Chaitin’s constant. Isn’t it 0.5? Either the program halts or it doesn’t - 50/50.

Went for a walk up at Serpentine Falls yesterday. Only walked a couple of ks of the 20km loop, but still some nice views

I am enjoying wikipedia's partial list of unparliamentary language, and wish Australian politicians could be a little more creative.

I mean, come on, in New Zealand they're getting in strife for "his brains could revolve inside a peanut shell for a thousand years without touching the sides".

It's been a while since I graffitied the Avantwhatever timeline with my nonsense so I thought I'd stop by and leave this here.

hell yeah, someone wrote a thing to tell you the ping of other players in dark souls 3, but it wasn't compatible with linux/wine

fortunately they open sourced it, and I've managed to make it work! next step is to clean up the code and make it public!
