I've spent a lot of time with Hollow Knight this week (beat it tonight, going back in for more) and if you don't mind cartoon bugs and are OK with some challenge (platforming a bit easier than Ori and the Blind Forest; combat way easier than Salt and Sanctuary) you should spend some time with it, too.

thinking I might convert my old D70 into a full-spectrum/IR camera since it's apparently really easy to disassemble and idc if I break it at this point.

It's looking like the rain should stop for the time I'd take the trip out to the show tonight so guess I should take advantage of that!

I have (belatedly) brought @EtruscanCeramic over into the tootiverse for your memejoyment

Instead of planning out what a viable test/staging environment for CBTS would look like, I'm out here creating Enhancement issues like

lovely session with Hollow Knight each of the past two nights. Glad I didn't let it sit on the backlog indefinitely.

@12whatisthis ok if I just @ you publicly will you respond to me?

CBTS programming note: 

this has been rolled out for front-end and back-end. Waiting to see how broken replies are (again, always...) but everything else went much more smoothly than I expected!
