Full day of work. Now, time for a matcha latte and some game dev. Or at least some art skill dev. Feb 16, 2018 at 10:38 AM

        I might coffee up and watch cash cab later. Trying to decide if I want a menu to pop up that asks what part of town you want to go in when you step on the town or just have a specific spot they always enter..

      Yes, Spotify. Nothing says music to me like a rando Asian dude in a suit holding a burger that looks nothing like those your sponsor makes.

        I know what you mean. FM Radio ads can be just as annoying (especially those used car dealer ads...). Fortunately I have bluetooth audio on my car.

      Why? Why are there so many bad WordPress themes? My job has become fixing other peoples' crappy code.

        @djDarkX Well, we manage a lot of client websites, and WordPress is the fastest way to get them the shiny website they want at a price they'll pay. ...especially given I'm the first programmer they've had on staff.

        That would explain it. I personally can't do WordPress anymore because of the bloat and unnecessary features it has. Shiny or not, I'll take function and speed over nice and shiny.

        Well, if you REALLY want context for said donation message, first watch the SGDQ 2016 run of Momodora. He talks at the end and it's very inspirational.

        I was coming back from a warm location when it struck and had to stand outside the airport in it for a good 15 minutes to de-ice and de-snow my car. It was near midnight but I felt zero shame in getting a giant, piping hot coffee. Usually, caffeine that late would ruin me but I was just so frickin' tired.

        The greatest advantage of the humid pine-filled woodlands where I live is that it rarely gets cold enough to really hinder you, sure people cute about the cold just the same but it's an unnatural day even in winter to see the temp get below freezing while the sun is up. I could probably go camping this weekend if I wanted to, it'd be cold, but not dangerously so coldfront or no.

        Surprisingly enough it is not cold here yet. Sure, we have already seen snow, but it is clear that there wouldn't be too much of it. After all, last year the winter was quite cold, but we saw no snow. This winter is so warm, we have so much sun it feels unnatural.
