Programming has been a hobby of mine since I was a child. I am entirely self-taught, and have managed to carve out a career in the field that spans over twenty years.
Initially, I worked with BASIC on the TI 99/4A, Atari 130XE, and the Commodore 64 and 128. This transitioned easily to Mac OS 7's QBasic. Then I learned Microsoft Visual Basic 4 through 6 and starting making small programs and games. My first two programming jobs involved me learning Microsoft Access, with all kinds of back-end VBScript.
In many ways, I consider the core concept of coding to come quite naturally to me. You simply break a task down into smaller and smaller tasks. What really fascinates me about coding, however, is how you can put all these simple tasks together to do something phenomenal.
I am involved in many projects outside of my professional career that involve programming in some way. This page is dedicated to showcasing those projects.
This Saturday I'll be running my 7th annual 24 hour birthday stream! This year, you'll see Risk of Rain 2 Eclipse runs, Noita, Crypt of the NecroDancer deathless, and a blind run of Tunic! It all starts Sat 6/10 11 AM Pacific time. Cya there! https://t.co/j8C1xJHbgG
I'm kind of hoping this "Retro category" kick that the classic Tetris community is on right now dies out. Half the time people don't put "Tetris" in their tags, so it makes it impossible to find these streams.
The rings seem to cap! Maybe at 7, maybe at 8, need more necroscience to find out. I realized this on Death Metal when his score wasn't increasing over 1000x the skeleton's scores with each consecutive hit, and then noticed the ramp combos were maxing out somewhere just north of 100 million.
So maybe the strat is going to go back to getting hearts up to 5 and then stacking rings up to 8?
Dance your way to the top of the leaderboards on Crypt of the NecroDancer Pinball! Experience the ultimate fusion of rhythm and pinball on our new table inspired by a beautiful classic from Brace Yourself Games.
I just had to log in to a remote server to fix an error, make a code change to upgrade the discord.js library on that server, reinstall npm packages, copy files into a production web site (otl.gg if you're wondering), and restart IIS. All on a mobile device in a location with terrible reception (NAS Pensacola).
Amazing what you can accomplish with technology these days.
i'm so sorry for being that guy but i can't overstate how reminiscent current twitter is of Portal 2 when the entire facility starts to break down because wheatley got so insecure about being called a moron he starts cobbling together abominations that don't work out of spite
This is the first step in removing chronologically ordered posts... They make the algorithm the default option and in a couple of months they will say "oh no one uses chronological posts, so we're removing it".
Seems like it's on the Cohost/Tumblr side of the aisle in terms of post length and content. It also has optional monetization for your posts, whatever, I won't use that but I'm sure it's a nice option for some.
https://t.co/40yzlOfRR0 <-- I don't want to be on a platform run by an abusive leader and overworked staff. I'm so dependent on twitter for my work though, I've got an essential part of my contact network here, but every second I'm here I feel I'm betraying my morals.
Tumblr may become relevant again, but probably not for a while. There are a number of non-creative projects ahead of it that need doing, so it'll be a while before I regularly put out stuff again. That said, look for something new there in the next few days. 👀
Caveat on Tumblr: I've been there for about 9 years, back when I decided to split my blog between my creative endeavors (Tumblr) and everything else (Blogger). While I still have the account, I'm not very active on it since my creative endeavors have taken a back seat.
