"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

Unlit shader + shadows + ambient occlusion makes for a choice aesthetic.

Merry Christmas, Cybres! It's been a pretty decent year. πŸ¦ŒπŸ‘

Alas, I'm enjoying myself too much with making this Ludum Dare game that I want to just keep working on it to a nicer state of completion than 2 days of effort.

And that's just what I'll do.

After almost an entire day of working on it, my game is starting to come together mechanically.

Sacrificial card game. You are the cards. Give up your stats to beat the monsters.

Also, hai. I haven't been around these parts in a while!

Travel and being busy at work has kept me away somewhat.

Thinking about a potentially interesting deckbuilding card game concept for 43's theme of "Sacrifices Must Be Made"...

I'm pretty excited!

The greeting message in this Italian high-speed train very thoughtfully translates "conductor" to "train manager."

The sad truth is that working in tech is actually not very appealing at all. I'd rather just make games all the time, if that were even possible.

Current status: Aboard a TGV, hurtling toward Zurich at 300 kph.

Today's timesink: Grass vs Unity.

Using the particle system is pretty neat, but I can't really control where the grass goes. I'm also kind of afraid of figuring out how to do a shader for it.

I'd love to see a graph over time of this week's "mega millions" lottery bets. At what point did it start escalating toward a billion dollars?

Any of you cybre punks, and assorted tooters, going to Twitchcon?

One day I'll figure out how to get a decent looking day/night cycle in Unity.

Damnit, Green Day's Insomniac came out 23 years ago. Nimrod is 21.

Oh yeah, Dookie is 24.

I have not been very good at keeping up with mastodon lately.

But I have been enjoying Assassins Creed Odyysseyy a whole lot! Having a long HDMI cable so I can play it on the TV from the couch is helping.

So is FreeNAS still the way to go for a home NAS setup?
