I'll be working some more on level generation code over at cast.samsai.eu/. Going to see if I can wrangle this cellular automata into generating decently working maps.

Today's Linux discourse: self-described "tinkerers" get mad that package manager makes it harder for users to accidentally break their system. Said "tinkerers" also run the blandest, most stock Linux systems imaginable, effectively ensuring that they'd never run into any limitations anyway.

Going to be continuing my Wasteland 3 playthrough over at cast.samsai.eu/ in about 15 minutes. I'm sure many more wacky characters and adventures await us. See you in the chat!

Hello! I am going to be playing some Linux games over at cast.samsai.eu/ in about 15 minutes. Going to take it easy today with some "Enter the Gungeon" and "Into the Breach". Then we'll see if we can wrap up that Wolfenstein: Blade of Agony. See you in the chat!

It was a mystery to me for a while why we didn't have time cards or other methods for tracking work time. But now I'm starting to see that we deal with international teams and that involves meetings that happen from like 4 PM to 8 PM, so nine-to-fiving doesn't even work and tracking time would be useless. Guess I'll have to start coming to work later and leaving early on some days to try to balance these out.

Really exhausting first day at work. 2 hours of laser tag on company time after a company-paid lunch takes a toll on you.

I'm going to play some Nowhere Prophet over at cast.samsai.eu/ in about 10 minutes. See you in the chat!

When I ran into this gun in Wasteland 3, you know I had to buy it instantly.

Some Linux users believe they have reached enlightenment when they start using an Arch-based distribution. They then preach their "ascension" to all around them. In reality, the enlightenment comes much later, and involves realizing that it didn't actually matter that much in the end.

Hello! I'm going to be streaming some Linux games over at cast.samsai.eu/ in about 15 minutes. Tonight's menu: "OpenMW" and "Battle for Wesnoth". Then we're headed back into Castle Wolfenstein in Wolfenstein: Blade of Agony. See you in the chat!

The job offer for the permanent position also arrived. So, on Monday I will no longer be an intern and instead a full-blown developer. Pay went up from 2630€ to 3370€ and apparently interesting new projects await.

Oops, I accidentally a new mechanical keyboard again.

This one's replacing my previous bluetooth mech for taking with me to the office. I need something to signal my 1337 I am.

I have an evil twin at the university who apparently went into studying law and then became a teaching assistant. And because he has the same first and last name as I, naturally that means I consistently get emails about how I am supposed to set up hybrid lectures at the campus. I also got a whole course's worth of thesis PDFs to review. I've sent them multiple emails about how I am not the jedi they are looking for, but they aren't buying it.

If game devs, including solo indie game devs, can't be bothered to put a FoV slider on first-person games, they need to put a prominent health warning about it right at the start.

Especially given that most if not all the commonly used engines like Unity have pretty straightforward ways to make those available.

I'm going to try and do some coding on my Rust + ggez.rs game dev project over at cast.samsai.eu/. Will probably play with some procedural level generation algorithms today.
