GAME DEVS, heed my advice:

- absolutely, under no circumstances, should you write your own physics engine

- absolutely, under no circumstances, should you use someone else's physics engine

Had to replace my CPU fan yesterday, thankfully my case is neat enough that I didn't need to pull out the motherboard to deattach the attachment system of my last heatsink. Switched back to a cheap fan with those clippy things instead of screws, who Wants to pay for a slab of metal anyway :winkingfelix: (And, slightly surprisingly, this cheap one has been working real well.)

I love it when my internet connection gets cut off for long enough to Uptime Robot to notice it. Twice in one day!

:angryfelix:

Also, I'll have a go at prototyping with a boardgame this time, let's see how that works out.

I think I'll try to live up to my profile header, and make a game with anti-capitalist vibes for . With a topic like "Your life is currency," not doing that just seems like wasted potential.

Time to get a nice big sleep before , hoping I'll wake up to a nice theme.

This whole "season" shit in games does my head in. It took 20 years to get away from pathetically clinging to the coattails of film, now half the industry is desperately trying to emulate television just because that's bigger now.

Meanwhile theatre, the only medium that's at ALL like games, goes completely ignored by almost everyone.

Waking up early is super weird, the hours between 9-15 feel so much more productive than 0-6. :thinkinglayton:

This week's #cliAppOfTheWeek—which we're getting in *just* under the wire for the week—is #bat, the `cat` replacement with syntax highlighting, git integration, (optional) line numbers, and more.

github.com/sharkdp/bat

See below for a cat/bat comparison (showing a bit of the #mastodon's code). And if you don't like those colors, don't worry—bat lets you select a different color scheme or customize your own (along with pretty much any other config option you might want).

#rust #rustLang #cli

This is something I have been working toward, alongside many others, during my entire career at Unity.

It took a lot of "hack weeks," 20% time, and other donated time to get off the ground; it came within a hair's breadth of being terminated multiple times.
We fought to keep it alive, to get it onto the release track, to keep it from being shipped with special license restrictions.

It's great to finally see our work having a public impact.

Time to sleep, gotta be refreshed for tomorrow's assembly-with-training-wheels* exam :mastodon_oops:

* it's called ttk-91, it's like a very small instruction set intended for teaching the basics of how stuff works at a low level.

If you hold your palm about a centimeter above your opposing wrist you can even feel this radiation glow.
