i played the 1992 dune RPG from cryo and dune 2 with TSRs and sardaukar mods, there’s nothing you can do to dune that i haven’t already seen

f(x,y) = ((((-x) / (17 - x)) * (~(y * 10))) - (((~y) | (y % x)) | ((-x) + (-y)))) % 3

the nice thing about planning out this next animation is that i know it’s possible, but i have yet to actually do it in practice

whereas with coding projects i start out never knowing it is possible, and i still don’t know even after i’ve finished

f(x,y) = ((((x - y) * (-x)) * ((-y) * (8 & y))) % ((~(~x)) & ((y ^ y) ^ (y * 15)))) % 8

my career is fucking over as far as i can reasonably tell

mental health is nice but cash in the fucking bank is nicer and somehow i fucked that up because i burnt out and lost my way

i can’t believe i fucking took a 30% pay cut in this fucking job market for programmers

for the sake of my “mental health” for all the fucking good that does me

It fucking blows my mind queen elizabeth is still alive

Do not give Wikipedia money they are flush with cash and they should not be rewarded for this insanely nagging passive aggressive bullshit

BEWARE: As Halloween gets closer, police are warning parents to LOOK at your child’s candy before they eat it. Some houses are reportedly handing out Amber bear amulets of neolithic hunters, 1700-650 BCE, found in Slupsk, Poland

for all the bullshit modern software companies spout about making things easier and effortless and frictionless, and intuitive UX, and capable, ubiquitous functionality, i sure end up having to hold the computer’s hand *a lot* just to do straightforward and primitive things

doing that thing where i have to let some bullshit proprietary game “store” download 60GB worth of a version of a game I don’t want just so I can write over it with an older copy so that the “store” doesn’t get sad and confused and tell me it’s not installed

the fundamental takeaway here is if you care about your data and your backups, run the fuck away from windows as far and as fast as you possibly can because on a foundational level they don’t know what the fuck they’re doing

even better:

the directory shows up as having multiple restore points but file history settings itself shows that directory isn’t in its backup whitelist

windows 10: “i have a restore point from september 23”

me: “great. restore it.”

windows 10: “done”

me: “you didn’t actually, all the mtimes are still from october 1st”

windows 10: “how the fuck is that my problem”

don’t let wikipedia guilt you into donating, they’re fucking flush with cash

i don’t know why i bother to let gitea attempt to generate pull requests

i only committed 1,150 32x32 png files, this is not a difficult operation
