@sir sure you can -- you can also build games on MacOS or Windows... what's your point?

(note that I work on PC/console games and even though PS4 dev tools are kinda usable on Linux, Microsoft's SDK and dev tools are obviously Windows only)

@sir at work I develop games :D :D
But yes it's no different from not being able to play PS4 games... which is why some people have 2 or 3 consoles. And I have multiple computers at home too (a mix of Windows, Mac, and Linux). My main driver at home is an old Macbook.

@sir for games, for work, and because it's the only other option to run a bunch of software like Adobe's Creative Suite unless you buy Mac hardware

Friends, cats and other mastodon users - are you ready and willing to do some SCIENCE?

I am asking because I have made this survey about the difference between being on Twitter and being on Mastodon, and would appreciate you taking three minutes of your time to fill it out

Thank you for reading. May good things come your way

@natecull I wonder if similar applications on iOS have the same problem (I'm thinking for example of comic readers who open ports so you can transfer comicbook files to your device)

So I spent the whole day talking tech design and development practices with people and didn't write a single line of code... Is that it, am I a TD now? ๐Ÿ˜ญ

What to do when you are bored:

1. Go to pet store.
2. Buy bird seeds.
3. Ask how long it will take for the birds to grow.
4. Wait for the reaction.

I think this might be worth some sort of mini-celebration. I never thought I'd live to see the day.

Itโ€™s Monday and I donโ€™t have a migraine. Also, I ate half a dozen chocolate truffles. Coincidence? I THINK NOT!

And this was only a week or so after King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard announced *their* new album!

So yesterday it took me more than 2 hours to vote at the French consulate. Looks like there are 1) at lot more French expats here than last time and 2) they removed the option to vote electronically so everybody had to come in person

@Richard_ermen Hard to say, I just peeked at the pages. Graphically speaking, the new books are much better looking than the 2nd edition. Otherwise it seems like an iteration on the rules, and expanded (but unmodified) background/cosmology. I'll know more when I actually read them! :)

In other news, I've received my gorgeous new edition of the Unknown Armies RPG!

You get interesting questions when you go pick a package like that at the post office

โ€œArrivalโ€ is this weird movie that, the more I think about it, the less I like it.
