Watching seals in the Fraser river while eating ice cream

This is something I have been working toward, alongside many others, during my entire career at Unity.

It took a lot of "hack weeks," 20% time, and other donated time to get off the ground; it came within a hair's breadth of being terminated multiple times.
We fought to keep it alive, to get it onto the release track, to keep it from being shipped with special license restrictions.

It's great to finally see our work having a public impact.

Power users: Don’t use Acrobat Reader, it’s too bloated! Use <random software> instead! Much lighter!

RPG publishers: here’s a lavishly illustrated PDF with maps

crunchyroll is promoting its new spring arrivals for simulcasts, with a brief one line description of each show

and God I fucking love the sheer apathy contained in this sentence so much

@JordiGH @bram Ouaip, `subprocess.Popen` n'attend pas (il faut appeller `communicate` ou `wait` ou autres), donc ca a probablement fait plein de commit en meme temps. Ca ne m'etonnerait pas que les write-locks ne marche pas dans des cas extremes en fonction du file-system. T'es sur quel OS?

Yay, my Things From The Flood Kickstarter loot arrived!

The slides to my GDC talk “9 Things Learned While Building Frostbite’s Cinematic Tools” are up on the EA website!

@JordiGH nonsense!
I want to see your fancy math!

(You can use a CW if you’re afraid of making people anxious)

@sir I hate them too but I don't have the willpower necessary to actually throw them away... so I remove them when reading the book, and put them back on when I'm done, fully aware of the frustration I'll experience next time I resume my reading. 😅

@ticky that was actually totally what I thought was gonna happen at the end of the book.

Now that I’ve tried Mercurial’s interactive commit curses interface, I can never go back to any other VCS prompt-based solution! Love this.

Note that I also put a Velcro strip in the back, to keep the power cable in place for easily plugging it in!

My guitarist made me this pedal board, so I added Velcro strips to stick my pedals on it. Ran out of space for the SansAmp but I found flathead Ernie Ball cables that save room! Now it fits!

I had missed this couple-days-old news that John Wick was joining Chaosium! Excellent!
