I think Talking Simulator is one of my favorite shows on LoadingReadyRun's Twitch channel. Alex and Cam's analytical examination of video games is really engaging, and it opens me up to games I wouldn't otherwise have experienced.
Their play-through of SOMA was really interesting, and knowing there's a "non-lethal monster" mode now has made me more inclined to buy it myself when I have some money to spare.

*Epicly* subtooting on main, but I don't think "it's hard to keep the translations updated" is a valid excuse for ditching this platform's only onboarding guide.
I'm also not sure the proper solution to "it's got a shitty design and people can't re-open it" is "replace it with an email, everybody loves getting email!"
Woohoo! I got tickets to go see Welcome to Night Vale's live show in April with my wife as a belated Christmas present!
Bleh. Article writing tonight was like pulling teeth, but I got two more banged out as required to stay on track.
Sometimes the web being a platform where anyone can run unsigned code in a shakily-contained box on your computer without your permission is really scary.
And sometimes it's really awesome that I can write a script that adds a button to a website which will export a color palette to Bear as a new note using an X-Callback URL.
Bottom 2 list of easiest places to clean that also require regular cleaning:
Hopefully I've configured these new spam-prevention filters correctly on my MediaWiki installation…
Things the Windows taskbar does right:
* An app's right-click actions are available even when it isn't already running
* Middle-click launches a new app instance/window
Things the macOS Dock does right:
* Clicking an app w/ multiple windows brings them all to the foreground
* Moving an unpinned app's icon from the auto-launch placement on the far right pins it automatically
I desperately hope that Apple intends to bake Workflow.app into iOS and replace Automator with it on the Mac. It's way more powerful, provides far more utility, and ties into OS-level features like Share extensions in a way that Automator inexplicably never has.

Boy howdy am I getting tired of people straining to declare with increasing fervor just how stupid Leia's Force-powered space walk was. She's a Skywalker (it's even in the name, people!) who we've known since Jedi has a strong connection to the Force, and we finally get to see her use it. It was beautiful and delightful and I'll not have anyone besmirching it.
Oxenfree is free atm on GoG. There should be a button on their main page to add it to your account!

I still can't get over Vice-Admiral Holdo jumping the Resistance's last cruiser into hyperspace *through* Snoke's capital ship. Intellectually I knew exactly what that would do, and I knew it was going to happen as soon as she started turning, and it *still* shocked me so much that I couldn't move my hand away from my mouth for like five minutes. I've never ever been stunned like that by a movie before. Ever.
Holy shit. That’s all I’m gonna say. Holy shit.
