I'm probably just being really dense but when people tag/cw their posts with "ec" what does that stand for?

Someone (@maltby@twitter.com) made a whole GameBoy dev studio for making topdown 2D RPG-style games
Like, as in, it literally exports to a gameboy rom

Jason Scott just dumped the ZIL source code for every infocom game on github. Clone it before Activision's lawyers wake up. And now we see how long it takes for the internet to produce a compiler for a language that's been dead for 30+ years from a cache of production grade source code for said language. We've had compiled z-machine files, but never the original ZIL. github.com/historicalsource

"It was our first time building a native application, so we chose to go with Electron"

Someone should tell them what Native means.

Hard to believe it's been 10 years and I've still not finished Homestuck.

...hey, don't give me that look, I binged Problem Sleuth before HS was out, followed it faithfully from day 1, but fell behind just before the big hiatus and then lost where I was up to when it continued

lol https://lobste.rs/s/izv547/how_i_discovered_easter_egg_android_s

this guy

- sniffed the traffic for the android security system
- disassembled their secret apk they send when you cna decode the messages
- rewrote the whole service
- found a message 'contact us' in the code, wrote them
- they called him back a few months later
- didn't take him on because he wasn't good enough in developing a base64 encoder over a telephone interview

So these are the mega-brains at google.

Week off did not de-stress me like I'd hoped >_<

But right now I've just helped a friend playtest this 5e oneshot for Student Nationals so I'm pretty burnt out.

Was a very fun scenario though and I think our DM got some useful feedback for running it live in a few weeks.

Got next week off from work, so I'm going to try and be social if I can and not just spend the entire week curled up in bed recovering.

If I'm especially bold I might even try to visit a few folks I've not seen or spoken to in a while?

If I'm super duper energetic could even visit peeps outside Nottingham???

At a DevSecOps conference/workshop today with work, honestly impressed I managed to get up for 5:30am, and we got there with plenty of time to spare.

Only got maybe another hour or two left, has been a bit dry but still informative even if a lot of it isn't really applicable to our workflow.

Seems we're already doing a fair few good practices, thankfully.

Just grabbed the PC port of Bayonetta. Not normally a fan of these games, but I've enjoyed other stuff Platinum has made and it's 75% off at the moment, so figured I might as well see if I like the original (and if so, can then get the rest on Switch)

Feeling nauseous and dizzy again, going to have to take another sick day.
I think that's my 3rd this year and 5th total since joining?

Worried I may be burning through them too fast, but I can barely focus on even writing this and am just going straight back to bed >_<

I frequently think about what society would look like if therapists (psychologists, etc) weren't largely framed as authority figures and gatekeepers - against children, against gender minorities, against those with disabilities.

Anyone else remember this iconic moment from Metal Gear Solid? Gives me chills to this day.
