Or try to stay on a constant Balmer peak - yours will be the greatest game ever!

For every source file you create, you have to take a drink.

For every global you use you have to finish the drink you're on.

Oh, I thought you were going to make a drinking game out of coding. Not code a drinking game. Silly me.

I gave up drinking a long time ago. Just not worth it. It causes far more problems than it solves. And plus, I don't like getting drunk anymore. Most I have these days is like one glass of wine a month.

I could make a new recording of my song "12 days of Christmashack", if you'd join me. Everyone would have their own solo verse. Record your own verse using your phone or anything, while listening to background instrumentals on headphones.

Febreze (and other air fresheners actually) is just below perfumes/colognes, and that's just below dead skunks in terms of smells that offend my nose.

I may write a game where the aim is to knock Edgar from his high horse.

You think he's on his high horse because he used to drink and now almost doesn't?

What about me then? My lifetime intake of alcohol has consisted entirely of:

  • My father apparently rubbing it on my lips when I was a baby

  • My classmates putting vodka in my orange juice on my 18th birthday

  • The occasional accidental encounter with an item of cake, pudding or confectionery that has been spiked, usually resulting in my rejection of said cake, pudding or confectionery because it tasted nasty

All of which I am angry about. ;)

I doubt I can participate in ChristmasHack or SantaHack though - too much work-work to do :-/

Maybe lately he's been big on marijuana-infused dressage?

SantaHack! Love that this is still a thing. :)

I won't be able to attend this year. We should start these conversations in October/November for planning and setup. Holiday times are always crazy busy!

I just spent way too long making this logo:

...for a hackfest that doesn't exist ;)

[edit:] I think the original sketch looks better than the cleaned-up version, though! :/

So, who's making it up ?

Are we gonna do it with just the a.cc forum's ?

I think just forums is good enough with only about 5 people. And considering the usual drop out rate of roughly 50%, there will only be about 2.5 finished games.

Then the winner is the 0.5 of a game - for that to even be possible is quite the hack :)

Most likely the 2.5 games that finish will be 0.5 of a game each ;) :D

I have a 100% completion rate!

Once I participated in a ChristmasHack and I finished. I've never been in any other *hacks, so 1 out of 1.

Incredible!
