There has been a bit of spam/bot action on overnight. It has been dealt with firmly. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Fantastic time for my home broadband to die. Showing 3MB/s down if I can even get to a speed test. VM shows no fault in our area but one on our line. Sigh.

Question for #indiedev, #gamedev, #ttrpg (and #medievalmastodon / #medieval interested folk): when a monster appears which is new to you, do you prefer it if its name is a) plain words (e.g. "devourer", "abyssal beast"), b) contains plain elements (e.g. "cemetaur") or c) novel (e.g. "sarien", "vorthal")?

Boosts appreciated!

I'm taking all this back. That was one of the most beautiful things I've watched. The piano score is amazing, the writing and acting also and it was beautifully shot. The themes are complex and addressed intelligently and sensitively.

Now excuse me as I appear to have something in my eyes and must find a tissue.

Felt cute, started refactoring my ECS and writing a real-time console game. Might delete later.

Today was the original launch day. Time to reset. T-minus 154 days. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

That was a very tiring and odd day. In between @Jo beginning to possibly show symptoms (she seems okay and "just" work-tired, so it's unlikely it is) and juggling my work as well as putting away the (epic) shop, it's felt really trance-like. Fluid and non-stop and high. Eagle me again I guess.

Big shop done. Time to wipe everything down and put it away. ๐Ÿ™

Back to work for me today, after the long weekend. I have a new, extra-noisy mechanical keyboard to make sure everyone in the house knows I'm coding. ๐Ÿ˜‚

The series of Tales from the Loop is set in...Ohio? They broke it. Though at least they kept the snow. Still...

When this has passed and people feel safe, I would be really up for a Mancs Masto Meet. So many cool people up in the gruff, grim, gorgeous North of England.

Rough day back at work. Ended it with some pretty solid meditation in little, repeated steps of time. Probably the first time I've done so in small, helpful "packets", when trying. I keep clenching my teeth. Quite aware of doing that now, moreso when I'm NOT meditating. Something to work on. Positives from negatives. ๐Ÿ™

โ€œAh yes child let me tell you about the Great Quarantine of 2020. No hologram technology, meetings in PJ's, eating breakfast 5x a day, playing N64 during breaks, digital dining with friends and rewatching Community all night. It was amazing.โ€

โ€œ-Is that when you gained 500kgs, grandma?โ€

Ops Director called me and told me to take tomorrow and Monday off, as I'm burning out and my NHS worker wife is off for a few days. ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ If you insist...
