As a developer or designer you’re sitting in front of the fucking computer all day every day—IMO it is self-care to get the best thing possible.

- Get a really fast computer so you get shit done quicker.
- Get a really good monitor so you minimize eye strain
- Get a good mechanical keyboard so typing is a joy, not a chore
- Get an ergonomic desk and chair
- Get the best quality, life is too short for crappy tools

No-name Chronicle:

Endrief plodded through the sand, grinding his teeth against the burning sensation that accompanied each footfall. The cloth tied around his forhead was at least something to shield his eyes from the spears of light scouring the dunes. The horizon danced weirdly, twisting under the ripples sloughing off the peaks of the lands waves.

The sweat dripping from him never touched the ground. He could feel it: the pale horse lagging behind, waiting to collect the final tax.

Yugi-woah 

Me: Welcome to the shadow realm Yugi-boy.
You: Sir, this is a burger king.

I have one of these... Honestly it's great and I support his character choice. I get to come up with interesting challenges and invent RP "quick time events" he can spend Ki on.

Complaint, height-related gripe

All I can see is discount Chris Hemsworth now.

I'm very tempted to create a personal Mastodon instance. Mostly just to see if I can.

My life goal is to be independently wealthy so I can keep doing the same job I currently do, just for shitty reasons instead of good ones.

DnD setting. My notes on the last campaign I played are only 54 pages.

My players almost escaped the subterranean dungeon today. But then asked an angel to destroy a door. It caused a cave in (they've been warned for the past few sessions it's unstable down here) and now they are either digging themselves out or going deeper to find one of several back doors.

So far so good.

Building software is all well and good until you have to wring out all the bugs you accidently put in it.

At least hardware has the good grace to catch on fire.
