comics, implied violence 

Hagar can kill a man with just dining utensils. They no longer let him have spoons, because the screams went on too long.

@mdhughes not until Gina Trapani writes a book about it, only to have the service canceled before the book hits the shelves.

looking for work 

Nothing in the magic money app (email) except stuff I don't wanna do/am no longer qualified for (QA, Java), or spam for stuff I can't do (designer). Have to update LinkedIn and trawl that mess again.

Unless someone knows of a nice coding ?

"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 Tower. 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."

I suppose I could extract the frames, make a script update it every X milliseconds while I'm on that desktop. Lotta work for a cheap flicker gag.

Also, can you believe 100 years of women voting, and there's still fucking Republicans? Or even mostly white men running for either party, and these creepy "promise keeper" Republican wenches? WTF.

Kanye really is on the ballot. Top row, too. We get 7 choices here, because crazy people love mountains.

I assumed he just ran to make a buck on moichandizing.

But also, look at the bible quotes on his ad page. Even aside from the tacky preachy blasphemy of that, they're pretty much all 100% out of context.

So I started Garden yesterday afternoon. Two sessions of 4 hours, maybe? But I'd made some game design notes day before, call it 12 hours, in addition to the library.

Only had to make one bug-fix in the library (text outlining didn't work at 1x font size).

276 lines of code (much of that data tables), only 77K binary (but 1.5MB of libraries).

Not really pretty code, and old LISPers who see my code often go all Reaver on me, but readable enough.

OK, Garden gameplay is pretty much done, very non-stressful little sim game.

Needs instructions/visibility, maybe slow down some updates, but it's working!

Time for a little binary test.

Instructions inside, Mac OS X (and you need to use Terminal to launch it) only for this beta.
