    Some folks aren't cut out to be managers, anywhere. If you can't handle stress, say no to that management promotion. Ain't nobody got time for that

    Oh I have plenty of ppl skills, my customers, coworkers and bosses love me. But what's expected of our managers is not reflected in their compensation, not by a long shot

    that's the other reason I wouldn't do it. they don't make enough more than me to warrant the stress of the position.
    When you speak, always remember there's a 99% chance you don't actually have to. Double and triple g-check yourself, bc you might just have to answer for what you say

    Yeah that especially applies to talking to law enforcement in the US. Don't tell them more than you are legally required to if they stop you. Nothing you tell them is going to help you at all. There's a good reason that this is what lawyers recommend people do.

    They made Barrett look and sound even more ridiculous than the original. Everything else, I actually really liked XD

    I was doing forge runs on D2 with my wife last night, and singing like a leprechaun to annoy her XD. I was calling it 'The Farge'

    I don't remember the lyrics, but the second line was about 'givin it the charge', and at some point something about Lucky Charms. I hope she doesn't leave me for someone who comes up with better songs.

    I think I had a good stash of Um and Ist runes from forge runs. Too bad they're long gone now. I think it's been over 10 years since I played D2...

    Just did a raid finally, found a teaching fireteam. Took like 3 hours
    Today I read "The mouth speaks what the heart is full of." Simple, and reminds me I have a ton of work to do.

    Wife watching Locke and Key. This show is so bad!! You can't just acclimate to discovering magic or magical worlds in less than 60 seconds.
    Been averaging 2-3 hours sleep for almost a month now. Starting to space out all the time ^^;

    @The Stranger oh I know, I used to hallucinate bad when I was 18. I was staying up for days on end, trying to work a full time job, hang out with my gf at the time and hang out with friends. I actually used to sleep drive 45 miles to work. Apparently I was stopping and paying tolls that way, too.

    @standardplayer People get killed doing that. There's nothing in the world I would ever risk falling asleep at the wheel and accidentally killing someone for. I have a brother who did that, and he flipped his car and crashed it into a building at 60 miles per hour. He got lucky and got out with only minor injuries (bruises were the worst of it). Usually, that kind of crash would kill you.

    @Windows i7 uhh it's called sleepwalking, it's not something people do on purpose. Not everyone does it, and that was the point in my life where I learned I did.
    I wonder if the site will reach 1 million messages or 100k threads first. They're both getting pretty close to those numbers

    I don't think profile posts count, otherwise we would have passed those landmarks long ago.

    This makes me sad. I wanted to double up on my points by not only getting reaction scores but also contributing to er....um... the conversation! Yes, yes! Contributing! That's the ticket! :kaoswt:

    Lol it's kind of mindblowing to me, either number reaching the above mentioned numbers. A million messages. One hundred thousand threads. I don't have a bunch of experience with forums, so I don't know if that's considered a lot for a site like this but....it seems like a lot XD
    Just rewrote my image cache and animator. Now I just have refactor all of my plugins that use them.....

    Yeah, I'm used to it by now lol I keep a pretty good version history for my plugins, but it does get tedious at times

    I totally get you. I always convince myself that updating pre-existing systems is all for a greater cause: better code lol. That used to delay my project's development, so I would suggest not re-writing everything too often xD

    Definitely. There actually has been a lot of learning since the last iteration of these two, and I'm remaking a few plugins anyway, so they're worth the rewrite now.
    Created a character outline with some code. I have no use for this. I'm....bored.....

    If I tried to draw multiples very quickly, I might pick up a delay. I'm doing this by reading the bitmap of the spritesheet, using the sprite's texture frame to determine what part of the bitmap to read. I make a container, then, I'm using bitmap.getAlphaPIxel(x, y) on every pixel in that frame to add a white pixel to the container, if alpha pixel returns > 0. But a 48x48 little sprite is still 2304 pixels to read

    that's a shame about the delay. are you able to stretch the character outline after you create it? maybe it can be used as a death effect instead- like have the outline expand while the player goes transparent within it?
    standardplayer
    standardplayer
    Yeah, something like that is def possible. I dunno, I did this out of boredom. I have three plugins I really should be working, but I've kind of been avoiding them....

Expectation: Design/dev a game for the game jam | Reality: "These codes suck, why did I do it this way? lemme fix this. Also what if I add feature xyz because... well, I can."
Did my first script call in an event! :kaopride: It's completely useless and just because I thought it'd be cute if looking at clocks in-game made the character say the real-world time, but it's fully functional scripting and I did it all by myself!
Stream will be going live shortly! I will be playing Resident Evil 3 Remake, and then I will be switching to a session of the Interactive Text Adventure! Feel free to drop by!
Spent all day working on something that ultimately has nothing "flashy" to show at the end of it. But that sense of achievement...
This is on the Amazon page for the FF7 Remake: 'If you get the game early, please think of others and don't spoil it for them. Please don't post videos or screenshots of the game until it is officially on sale on April 10.'
