Pinned toot

I've been programming for 40 years. I still fuck up and call myself a moron every single fucking day.

Best career choice. Totally nailed that one. I'm a fine specimen of Homo habilis, first toolmaker.

You know what I love about Mars? Yes, austere beauty, tallest mountain in the Solar System, fabulous fashion sense of the Ice Warriors… But mainly, it's the only inhabited* planet without noisy, disease-ridden Humans on it.


* Don't discriminate against robots!

Fediverse Drama: When the stakes are so completely nonexistent, it becomes an existential war against your VERY SOUL! Someone on the Internet doesn't agree with you, so they must be shameblockbanned!

What is it about being mod of a fairly low-traffic IRC channel that turns someone into such a total cuntknuckle?

Got my hardcover of d101games.com/openquest/

Which will make it much easier to use in real gaming; PDFs are too slow at page-flipping.

May run a game soon (this weekend? At least Session Zero could be done)

Me: Offers dog a little chip.
Dog: No, what is this garbage?
Me: Takes chip away. Pause. Offers dog the chip.
Dog: OMG this is amazing, love you so much NOM NOM NOM.

What I'm Watching: The Mandalorian

mdhughes.tech/2020/04/07/what-

Bored by real life, and all done with ACNH until construction finishes tomorrow morning… so I wanted to watch something stupid. Signed up for Disney+ trial, even tho I loathe Disney. Gotta remember to cancel this in a week, giving them money is evil.

And they still don't have the last movie yet! I'll have to acquire it by other means. So instead I watch The Mandal

They shoulda put a mic under Nota Fett's helmet, because he is really fucking hard to hear. Good thing for subtitles.

All right, bored by real life, and all done with ACNH until construction finishes… so I wanna watch something stupid.

Wait, they don't even have the last movie yet?! Motherfuckers! Am I gonna have to just torrent the thing?

I guess I'll watch some Mandalorian, but I wanted something even dumber than space-trucker-and-green-monkey.

OH SHIT. The car is called "RESON". As in "Maybe they'll listen to REASON", except this is a couple years before Snow Crash?

Now he's got a giant "Maximillian Sword", because WTF not, if you're gonna fight giant monsters and clowns from outer space.

Watching Jiban, and it is so very Robocop + crazy tokusatsu shit. Dead cop cyborg with a gadget car is authorized to straight up ignore warrants and kill "bioron" monsters. With a glowing plastic face, not just Peter Weller under a stiff mask. The little girl and chatty computer "BOY" are kinda shit, tho.
