In the world I see, you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center.
You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life.
You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Towers.
And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.
—Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

One problem of doing any is I get used to bytes and kilobytes again, and then when I see modern junk need megabytes or gigabytes, I flip my shit and scream "what the fuck do you need 325,000 Atari 800s for just to draw a screen?!"

I wrote this as a ha-ha-but-seriously-yes:

You should only use software you wrote for yourself, never let anyone else touch it. Other Peoples' Code is the work of the devil.

I really do worry about the mental health of GNU/Linux users. They're like FOX "News" viewers, so much completely anti-reality shit fed to them it starts backing out of their mouths.

"We're the only free people! The UN/New World Order/Apple/Communists/Fluoridators are going to make you wear masks/use their app store/bottled water and take away mah guns/compilers/precious bodily fluids!"

Dude. Chill the fuck out, it's not like that.

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.

That's how that phrase goes, yeah?

Nice, I can set my name by just talking to an NPC! And I can go upstairs and set my job, too. Can't really do math yet or I'd have a fibonacci proof-of-scripting.

Every scripting system eventually just becomes another Scheme (eval).

NPC's dialog script:

hello,name: Greetings, I'm {mob-name}.
job: I get by.
how: Times are tough.
world: The world is ending!
*: What?

\o/ !

They can sorta do commands but I need to get script evaluation in.

Well, after a couple hours and total restarts for new mods, I finally found fields, animals, and got some basic supplies. Only mobs I've seen have been shit-looking zombies and ghosts (who I stayed away from).

If I stayed at it, I could supposedly make a leather backpack, and a bed for safety, and my inventory wouldn't be such a disaster.

I did find a "dungeon" of mossy cobble… but nothing in it.

Not a great experience out of the box.

I got out, started starving, and found a hillside full of blueberry bushes. Otherwise I'd be dead now, back at that tundra.

Also my WhyNot world started me in a tundra, no food. Then I got a massive thunderstorm, so now I'm holed up in a cave, almost starving, waiting for day.

So I'm trying to set up Minetest to be a "better Minecraft". Mineclone 2 works, but I want bags, a bunch of other stuff. Adding mods I want doesn't get all the dependencies, and many don't seem to exist except in the base game? So why don't they work?

WorstBlockGame didn't even launch, it has errors in its lua file.

WhyNot seems OK. Has a lot of stuff, dunno how good it is long-term.

Very much a "Linux of Minecraft" experience, and I don't mean that nicely.

Also the HorribleSubs translation is much hornier than the Crunchyroll one was. Which is closer to the manga, but it's a little jarring.

Entirely reasonable. And they don't even have the big store as a literal box on a hill with paved-over approach. Tohru would burn any Wal-Mart down.

Also fucking JJ "lens flares" Abrams doing John Constantine is gonna be a shitshow. I've been rereading my comics, and he's not a hero.
> NBC’s adaptation of the DC Comics series Constantine lasted just one season, but HBO Max is taking its own shot at the property, for a series that will be produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot.
