Years ago when I started making let's play videos on YouTube, one of my inspirations was a youtuber called FrozenFoxy, but he dropped off the internet in 2017. So, I was quite happy to notice today that he's back. youtube.com/watch?v=ReW0qh2hx6

A technical overview about the practical pitfalls of web3 and how, at the end of the day, it's just centralization around corporate platforms, same as web2.

Up to the point that if OpenSea (an NFT marketplace) delists your NFT, most NFT software will not show it in your own wallet anymore. While the NFT might be immutably on the blockchain, everyone just uses OpenSea (or a small list of 3 other platforms) as an API anyway.

Hello! Now that the holiday celebrations are behind us, the Friday Livestream returns! I'll be playing some Linux games over at cast.samsai.eu/ in about 15 minutes. Tonight's menu: "Project Zomboid" and "ΔV: Rings of Saturn". Then we'll go Snail Trekking again. See you in the chat!

Welp, my plan for work today was getting CI/CD working for one of our microservices, but it seems like someone put a firewall between our GitLab instance and our container image registry. So, I guess I'll just continue learning TypeScript instead. Not like I wanted to do anything productive today anyway.

It's really wild that cryptobros seem to actually think that game companies will let them move items and skins between games. No, you idiot, they'll just sell you the receipt for big money and when the game gets shut down all your fancy NFTs are void. Just because you paid money for the receipt doesn't actually give you any tangible ownership over the textures, 3D models etc. and your receipt isn't big enough to hold them anyway.

So, ended up watching Don't Look Up. I can totally see why its reviews have been split. After all, truth does hurt.

Oh yeah, no stream for me today either. I am celebrating before 2022 inevitably starts kicking and punching. Happy new year!

The biggest challenge at work this week is finding good Jira tickets to dump all the hours of browsing Reddit into.

I'm going to do a bit more coding on the Rust + GGEZ game project that I've been working on. Hoping to get some level tile collisions working, so that the level rendering isn't just decoration. cast.samsai.eu/

Going to get back to coding for a bit over at cast.samsai.eu/. Will try to get some more level rendering and other level generation related stuff working a bit better with my little game dev project.
