A comparison of the classic Tetris and Descent communities. Not a post I write lightly, either.
Aptiz played #Pentis again. In the beginning you can see roncli asking in the chat for the right version. About an hour later, he broke the #PentisRankings record with 60K ! Congratulations roncli 🏆 🎉
Yeah, it's season 11. But the OTL Season 6 highlight reel is up, this time Fireball has taken the reins! Check out this video jam packed full of kills, deaths, silliness, and Sirius puns. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXstLVjnaGo
Over on #thatbirdhellsite, someone retweeted sympathy for the people being laid off today...
...and then said that Amazon Games was hiring. You know, the one that just had layoffs in NOVEMBER.
Honestly? Tech sucks right now.
Seriously. Why is it called Sagittarius, A Star? Clearly, it's Sagittarius, A Black Hole. Silly astronomers.
This eslint/stylistic breakup is going to give me a headache. Don't developers have something better to do than give other developers busywork?
Bing is so bad. https://otl.gg is being blocked in their search results, and Bing webmaster tools are absolutely useless, not telling me why it's being blocked.
it's not actually common for real hackers to use two keyboards at once; that's just a stereo type.
I got my wish. 🤒
Me and my wife, despite buying a house of nice size, always seem to get in each other's way, be it in the kitchen, on the stairs, it doesn't matter. She's all up in my two square feet.
I often joke that all I want for Christmas is my two square feet.
Update 2: The record that beat Blue Scuti stood for one day. Blue Scuti got it back.
Update: This record stood for 1 day.
I got the honor and privilege of calling the NES Tetris NTSC world record today while running Classic Tetris Wars on my Twitch channel for the very first time. It was thrilling. Congratulations to Blue Scuti for his 6,609,220 level 153 performance. https://clips.twitch.tv/DiligentDeadGoldfishDoritosChip-cx_vDMWAjKaZUK6N
like, you used to use a phone line to access the internet

Are you ready to get Six'd Off?

So I started a fresh YouTube channel some time ago, and yesterday I released the first real video to it.
Check out highlights from Argus Industrial Moons' run to the OTL Season 10 Best of the Rest title! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2x-GGW9FYI
I guess that qualifies as a "log"...
People at work are calling Kubernetes K8, and I hate it. It's not "Kubernete"!
Want a preview of what CTWC will be like next weekend from a gameplay perspective? CTL Season 22 finals starting now.
No airport hell this morning, but you know that lady that talks about security at literally every airport? I just realized, she sounds old AF.
If this security line posted signs "5 minutes from this point", "10 minutes...", etc., They'd have to post them every foot. #airporthell
I'm sorry, what?
Did I miss Elon making another purchase? https://twitter.com/unity/status/1701650081403842851

Use TypeScript they said. It'll be better they said.
If you know, you know.
@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.
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: https://olmod.overloadmaps.com
@PossiblyMax @deepthaw ya and there are new remakes of Descent like Overload that are enhanced and there’s even hardware that Vic Putz made to make the Space Orb look like a controller with NO drivers. Works on all operating systems https://www.hanselman.com/blog/bringing-the-spaceorb-game-controller-forward-with-an-arduino-bridge-via-the-orbotron-9001
I don't know who wrote this, but MORE PATCH NOTES LIKE THIS PLEASE. 🤣
First OTL flag capture in 7 seasons, and it was a game winner. https://clips.twitch.tv/PeppyFitOrangeDoggo-KcAMpnSlyb0Kts6y
I could buy a nice amount of coffee with this!
Clearly mismanagement from the top. Their logo color doesn't even match their name!
