Imagine being such an asshole that you tried to blame the folks fresh out of a tech bootcamp rather than the project leadership for such a colossally cocked up Iowa Primary.

I followed up on this and damn I forgot how super satisfying Skyrim is.

I have enough bandwidth in my revamped home wifi network to join a Hangout and then cast the tab to my TV, no problem.

This is great.

No amount of technology is going to change corruption. Do you think you will win a tender, which is tendered online, without some under the table funny business? No way. It is the Wild West of corruption and if you have survived in it, you are going to thrive anywhere on this planet. That is probably why Indians are the best at navigating complex corporate structures. But this is not good for us as a society. Dial back on the competition a bit we will be happier.

I'll be trying to get a more powerful HF radio once I'm on general, with the intent of getting into JS8, which seems amazing.

Slowly getting closer to choosing a first handheld radio after I get my ham license. I really want something that just does it all so I have lots of options.

I'm thinking a Yaesu FT3D. I am okay with not having HF on a handheld, I'll get a dedicated HF radio once I get my general license, which will probably be soon.

Whoah. Bright meteor over the coast of SF. Brighter than a street light.

What a totally weird ad for GitHub. No text, no pitch, no sense. Just octocat in a game like future setting that resembles an urban version of Slime Rancher.

Smash Ultimate is such an interesting fighting game. It has so many characters that strange interactions among movements and fighting styles emerge. It means that there can be many "metas" and many different ways that you have to think about the game.

The fact that there is a team mode AND a singles mode and that there is so much stage diversity also makes the game more beginner friendly (chaos means less skill, more chance, which is good for casual players to have a laugh).

Smash Ultimate this morning was exciting. My Snake against 2 really hard matchups at 3.5m smash power.

Pacman was 1:1 before we stopped. A crazy wild zoning match with an enemy who had a lot of the combo skill down. The challenge there was serious, but the Pacman had so much to concentrate on that I could slip a lot of projectiles and C4 through their defense.

ZSS was 3:2 my win. Opposites match, and I managed to squeak out wins by conditioning them to overcommit.

Feels really good.

Trunk or Treat for the Preschoolers turned out well.

If you want the Processing sketch and assets for the boos, let me know.

I have more screenshots of my #lispgamejam game but I realized if I keep posting them there will be nothing left to see when you actually play it. the jam ends in under 12 hours so you can see it all soon!

Can anyone recommend a good place to buy keycaps? I ordered the parts and switches for a 65% split keyboard from keeb.io with macro board and I'm sort of failing to find good options for what to cap it with.

I am extremely chuffed about my zealio silent switches, which I'll be soldering in as soon as the board shows up.
