Reminder: I'm doing searches and checking options, but a decent contract in programming / website construction / sysadmin would be a great help. I've worked with various *nixes and DBs, web servers, email servers. I know about a dozen comp languages and keep learning more. Learning Rust currently.

can you really call it a zero-day if the flaw is so stupid that no-one should have caused it in the first place?

In nearly every single other medium, this would literally be worth a lawsuit. I'm not kidding.

You can sue an author or director for using a plot element you suggested to them (or put in a fan work) if you can prove they took the idea from you, which is why authors/directors often say they "don't read the fanfic/suggestions"

This is what's supposed to be normal. Games aren't supposed to be some magical land where laws apply only when corporations want them to. Why are people okay with this?

Aubrey relayed

We really need to stop normalizing corporations "taking inspiration from modders and fan communities" and acknowledge that what's actually happening is a multi-million dollar company taking what someone made for free and monetizing it to their advantage

While paying them nothing at all, might I add.

youtu.be/nF2y31Kt8KE tonight's work music: still thinking about RUINER and this specific track from the OST in particular. it's by Susumu Hirasawa, off his solo album Aurora from way back in 1994. i feel like i could pitch a tent in this song and live inside it for an entire weekend. jesus

food, nonsense

if you think your character ideas are dumb just remember that one of the most successful indie games ever has two characters named after shitty fonts who talk in those fonts

I'm not even sure what to make of a recurrent mastodon bug I'm noticing on another instance. "we know you like having a timeline but what if it's just you now?"

Sometimes I see stuff like this and I just think, "maybe we should have stuck to using progressively better Z80s or something"

so this lovely thing could have ground cloud computing to a halt, but they didn't disclose it until everyone had already published fixes. apparently changing the page size mid-execution is a thing you can just do at OS level on intel. I get why, but wow does it make messes if you're not careful. software.intel.com/security-so

Made a "millet tourtière" this weekend, and it is SO GOOD. This was a test, to have my parents taste it to see if they like it enough to make some for Xmas instead of the traditional meat pies.
