Meanwhile GOD WHY ARE PEOPLE CARRYING AROUND THEIR OWN UNCONSCIOUS BODIES I THOUGHT I FIXED THAT BUG FOUR YEARS AGO BLARGHLE

I thiiiiiiink we've ironed out most of the nonbinary gender option bugs, with the exception of the Places Programming weird behaviour (which we'll fix next month, after giving Places programmers time to check that their programs will still work properly after we fix the Check Female Contrivance). We'll be opening the option to existing players soon.

I just spent a sodding hour and a half on the phone with Verizon, and I'd bitch about it but there's little point since everyone already knows that they're shit. The USA desperately needs regulators who aren't afraid to take a chainsaw to enormous corporations like this, cut them into chunks and force competition to happen.

Many people on the Island are experiencing badnavs right now - just wanted to let y'all know I'm on the case.

Folks have been asking for more gender options on Improbable Island for an EMBARRASSINGLY LONG TIME now, I just wanna let y'all know that I've got things almost to the point where I'm ready to DIVE THE FUCK IN AND SORT IT. Expect updates within the next few weeks.

(legacy code is like a window into a much shittier past, where people literally put in checks to ensure that marriage could only happen between people with $sex=1 and people with $sex=0)

((that's LITERALLY MORE WORK))

Look y'all here because I built Mastodon the way I wanted and you happened to like it. If you no longer like it that's your own business, don't give me shit about your failed expectations. There's the door, there's the code, there's the alternatives. The shit I've received today just because I was open to something that a part of the community wanted is completely inacceptable.

Reckon I might do some interface buggery tonight. Shouldn't be a need to have the WHOLE ENTIRE PAGE to refresh every time someone posts a line of chat.

the best way to never worry about what to do with data is to never collect it. just make the simplest possible thing you can get away with

I mean I don't know, but somebody probably wanted to burn it to make electricity like a total fucking muppet. Wanker

It just took me an hour and a half to get home from the Pittsburgh Waterfront because the bridges were closed. The bridges were closed because a bunch of coal barges had come loose and floated off down the river and smashed into the bridges.

THE FUCK WAS ANYONE DOING WITH ALL THAT COAL? RUNNING A FLEET OF FUCKING ANTIQUE STEAM LOCOMOTIVES?

I made a tiny game for this year's 200 Word RPG Challenge. The same game is also my monster game of the month. That's like killing two mutant bird monsters with one stone golem.

Anyway, you play bored D&D monsters trying to live peaceably together in the dungeon in the long boring months between adventuring parties. You can only communicate with your dungeonmates via passive-aggressive post-it notes.

#MayRPGQ2018
“What mechanics make you feel excited and ready to play?”

Interpreting Tarot-like cards. I don’t understand how Tarot-based games haven’t taken over RPG game design following in the footsteps of Ganakagok. Ambiguous imagery and meaning, plus the human brain’s pattern recognition systems, immediately spurs on the imagination in a way that is magical seeming.

With the GDPR looming, Improbable Island is not gonna bother singling out Europeans for special treatment - I'm just gonna treat everyone as though they're European, so all the yanks can get a taste of what it's like to have regulatory bodies that actually give a shit about you. :)

"2) How do you introduce yourself?"

Badly. Reluctantly.

I generally am terrible about first meetings, introductions and similar events. I hate drawing attention to myself. I never know how to condense my entire daily life down into a few key details the other person should know. Self-doubt and existential despair don't help any, either.

Anyway, I'm Nick. I work multiple part-time jobs to survive. I make games, some of which are not terrible.

Reminder: Repairing and re-purposing stuff you've got instead of buying new stuff is punk as fuck and helps fight capitalism

This is why I only use & support Free & Open Source Software in my personal life. This man is going to prison. Prison.

"A California man who built a sizable business out of recycling electronic waste is headed to federal prison for 15 months after a federal appeals court in Miami rejected his claim that the “restore disks” he made to extend the lives of computers had no financial value, instead ruling that he had infringed Microsoft’s products to the tune of $700,000."
