What a wacky, crappy and stressful month it's been!. I've got a bunch of notifications and personal messages to catch up on and I'm gonna feel like Rikifive when I catch up on the "introductions" section. So many welcomes and hellos to send out!
Daughter is sick. :C
So today is now going to be a movie and cuddle day (with poppity corn).
Movie options will be:
Inside Out, Puss in boots, Tangled, Despicable Me 2, Minions, How to Train Your Dragon 2.
For those of you curious about audio books, and coincidentally are a fan of The Lord of the Rings, Humble Bundle is running a promotion where you can get all of them for $15.00.
I've never listened to an audio book before and I had some serious doubts about what to expect. I was actually ridiculously impressed when I decided to buy it and give it a go. The reading pace is great, the annunciation is on point and the range of voices is outstanding. They even go so far as to bring in multiple voice actors to read their parts and the background music sets the scene well without disrupting the narrative/dialogue.
It's worth it. So, check it out if you're curious.
Anyone here managed to never burn out on programming? My current limit is 3 months(6-8 hours per day, 7 days per week, 50 hour programming week on average), and then I just have to take a break, sometimes lasting few days(with at most 2 hours on programming per day). I've been always like this so far, so I admire those who can always be so passionate on programming
Automatic level scaling without an option to turn it off can be a very bad choice for a game. The worst I've ever seen was in Nightmare of Druaga, where if a power outage made your system turn off, the game detects it as an attempted cheat and overwrites your save while taking away your best gear, leaving you unable to progress at the late stages of the game, and unable to recover.
