This is what I'm doing with my time off this week.

And I like my potatoes deep fried.

If I interpret RmBeer2's post correctly, I prefer my potatoes covered in baby oil, or nothing. :D

Funny video, but the title is dumb. It's not about being British. It's about being white and nerdy. :P There are some seriously scary British dudes.

Made a new song just to have a reason to keep this thread alive >:(

This one is not a pop song. It's more akin to bands like SoaD or A7X.

It's interesting. I like the music a lot. Making your voice sound like an accordion is really cool. I find some of the vocals a bit rough and aggressive, so probably wouldn't mix it into a random playlist, but I could find myself listening to it on repeat without realizing it if I'm in the mood. :P I should add that you impressed me again with the vocals throughout most of the song, but some of the finer points I think were either hard to understand or sort of monotone.

That may look like I just made an HTML document and screenshotted it, but I did not. >:(

Found that today when I got home and checked my work email. 8-) I don't often have my contributions acknowledged or praised so that means a big deal to me. :P I wonder if I can use that on LinkedIn somehow later on if I need to.

I'm finally starting on my KrampusHack entry. Having fun, and progress is reasonable, but there's a long way to go. I'm hoping to use my professional experience to stay on task for a delivery, but we'll see if my game programming skills can keep up with my demands.

Our puppy's crate is finally back out of our bedroom and back in his (my nephew came to stay for a week, requiring the puppy to be relocated). So hopefully I'll be able to actually sleep in in the morning. In the meantime I'm going to burn the midnight oil hacking. Hopefully the puppy is able to sleep through it since he's now in the bedroom next to my office, and I'm using a loud, mechanical keyboard. :P

I have smoked a little more than half a gram of cannabis, but I barely feel it. I'm going to vape on my 510 battery instead. That's Sativa-based so hopefully it'll help to give me energy, and maybe will increase the frequency of creative ideas that I get. :) When I'm focused I have found this to be a programmer superpower, but it has been rare that it has had such a positive effect. :P

Using lots of cannabis. Told the doctor that, and he sounded elated on the phone. Since my last call was one of essentially relapse I think he was pretty pleased that I was abstaining again from alcohol, and said that cannabis was much safer for me. Which I like to joke means that smoking weed is "doctor's orders". Mind you, I also just happened to be feeling pretty good at the moment he caught me (mentally healthy) so I may have inadvertently oversold how well I was doing. Next appointment isn't for 3 months, though I can reach out if I need it.

I'm off the alcohol again for nearly a month, save a few cheat days. Feeling pretty good, but still experiencing depression. I find that my best days happen to be days where I manage to get proper nutrition/vitamins and lots of exercise, but it's not easy to do that and it doesn't guarantee a good day either.

We've been cheating lately. Taking the dog to the dog park. Which is much easier on us, but it's worse for me because I don't get as much exercise. It is interesting to see how Watson interacts with dogs. We've always felt that he was very well socialized, but we hadn't really introduced him to many strange dogs or several dogs at once very often. Indeed, he does amazingly well himself. He's polite and kind with the other dogs and the people. It's great. What's not great is that he initially is very insecure and it's obvious, and that makes him a target.

The first 15 minutes or so is usually him getting chased by the pack, with the most aggressive barking, snarling, and biting at him while he cowers, whimpers, and runs away from them all (fortunately, he's also generally faster than most so he can pretty well outrun them until he makes a wrong turn). It's hard to tell how much of it a game and how much of it is serious. I think that it's a game in the world of dogs, but it looks and sounds serious to us. He got bit by one dog several times, but when I checked there didn't seem to be a mark. So I think it's really just establishing the hierarchy. And once Watson has met all of the regulars it will probably help to make the transition in faster.

Eventually he does seem to make friends again and then it's all good times. It could be my wife is putting out the energy, or maybe without knowing it I am. I don't generally get the vibe from Watson that he's this insecure, though he certainly has an unsure bark when he realizes that he's protesting in vain. I suppose it's possible too that he's picking up an insecure energy off of these most aggressive dogs, and is understandably insecure because he knows they're trouble. The last time we went (I think our 3rd time so far) he actually tried to run back into the entrance pen to leave. We kind of had to force him in and ignore him tough-love style. Was a bit hard to do so we didn't do perfect, but it did get done. I'm hoping that he is overall enjoying himself and that the visits are positive for him. I think that they are, but when I see him cowering and whining it's hard to watch.

He's so quiet that he rarely speaks (maybe he gets that from me). Except unlike me he has a very big voice. :) If only he would turn and face the other dogs and be confident in himself and make some noise I think he would be running that park. He's as big or bigger than 95% of the dogs I've seen, he has the genetics of a powerful and smart breed, and he normally has positive energy that will help all the dogs thrive. What he lacks though is experience/wisdom. So it could be that will hold him back for another few years.

It'll also get better as we meet more of the regular owners, and get to know them well enough to understand whether they're a good or bad energy for the dogs. And we'll also better understand the dogs that are actual trouble versus just insecure or dominant.

OK, OK,... back to hacking.

https://twitch.tv/freefallwefall

I began to stream on Twitch sometime overnight I think. I'm a little out of it. I've been up all night struggling to draw a brown dot. :D More precisely struggling with code perfection, project split woes, and short term memory loss. πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ But also let's be real here, C++ wasted a fair bit of my time as well. Or perhaps more appropriately GCC and/or MinGW did. I'm not sure if clang is available for MinGW32, and it sounds like a hopeless venture that I shouldn't get distracted with at the moment (I've got far too many distractions as it is). But certainly GCC is still offering some pretty ridiculous error output. I guess I've forgotten how the errors tend to compound instead of the compiler understanding where the typos end. There I go digressing again...

Good for you streaming. I haven't worked up the courage to stream. :(

I'm working on a trailer...

https://github.com/erinmaus/itsyscape/projects/15

The script is based off the elevator pitch in the README!

{"name":"612760","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/b\/1\/b1ee79ae4da3d7cd0d9a79759aa7cf85.png","w":870,"h":595,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/b\/1\/b1ee79ae4da3d7cd0d9a79759aa7cf85"}612760

Hoping to finish it by March 23rd, 2021 (three year mark for ItsyRealm development!!).

So I added Svalbard, an undead dragon. He's gonna have attacks like draining your health to restore his, summoning a snow storm, etc. The gimmick of the fight is you can damage his organs and bones to disable his attacks, so you can make the fight easier over time.

The topic is whatever you want. Feel free to read the first 5138 posts to refresh your memory at anytime. So far we've discussed abortion, religion, politics, racism, fascism, socialism, you name it we've probably discussed it. Not many topics left.

Trump is gone in a few weeks, and still fighting to actually give you money. He wants $2000 checks, congress (both the GOP and DNC) think $600 is all you peasants deserve. (Fun fact: Nancy Pelosi demanded less than half his original request because getting another "Trump check" would make Trump look good before the elections. Literally bargaining with people's lives for political gain.)

Trump blasts Covid relief bill just passed by Congress, demands changes

Jimmy Dore (an actual progressive, something you don't see on MSNBC and CNN) goes into plenty details about how Pelosi fought for less than half of Trumps initial offer while meanwhile giving corporations the "greatest upward transfer of wealth in history".

video

Cares ACT greatest upward transfer of wealth in history

There is only one party. Megacorporations.

Jimmy Dore, being an actual progressive, has also been arguing for / demanding for Medicare for All (public healthcare) and progressive frauds like AOC have actually been fighting against it. AOC said, and I quote, "This isn't the right time for that", to which Jimmy Dore says, "A global pandemic, huge unemployment, what better time could there be to push for universal healthcare?"

Wow. That's a game I hadn't thought of for a while. I didn't actually play a lot of it, but I played loads of Moraff's Revenge, the game it's a sequel to.
