@shanselman Speaking of Overload, here's something you may be interested in... recently, some community members released "Overload First Strike", a single player Overload campaign that is a complete remake of the original Descent First Strike campaign.

overloadmaps.com/overload-firs

It can work with just the original game, but it works best with "olmod" as it takes advantage of some of the features it provides: olmod.overloadmaps.com

Studying business, it astounds me how every counterexample to good business practices is happening at Twitter.

I am convinced he's trying to make Twitter fail for some reason that will benefit him. I struggle to see what that reason could possibly be.

These events are great fun, and hopefully in the coming year I can get back to doing what I enjoy in the streaming space. I don't have the biggest following when it comes to Twitch, but metrics and analytics don't matter to me, just getting to chat and having fun is enough!

Thanks to all who stopped by during the 24 hour stream! It was a lot of fun, and there were a lot of crazy moments! I said I probably wouldn't finish Tunic, but I've since learned I was on the 2nd to last major fight, so there's a chance I try to finish it off in the coming week.

We suffered in Eclipse, derusted in Noita, and zooped across the Crypt of the NecroDancer. Now it's time for something foxy. Tunic, the closing game of the 24 hour stream, is up next! twitch.tv/roncli

"CEO Satya Nadella cited economic conditions and an investment in artificial intelligence as he informed employees about the change."

If I had ever thought about working at Microsoft, I would no longer have those thoughts. Big tech clearly is not interested in taking care of its workers.
