*explaining mastodon to someone* yeah, ok, there's not really any brand presence. the Garfield account is just a person who is using it as an alias, not Jim Davis's account. oh no, not that one. the Nicolas Maduro account is actually real, that's actually the official account of the president of Venezuela

If you've played Doom before but never this way, I recommend it! All the original id Software level designers developed and balanced their levels in this way. Weapon and resource placements within each level become much more meaningful, and there is less chance of the resource economy breaking (eg player has nearly full stacks of everything, boooring) later in the game.
I just released a tiny Doom utility on itch, a "pistol start" only mod: https://jp.itch.io/doom-pistol-start
Page explains exactly what it does in case that's not clear. Requires GZDoom; whole thing is about 20 lines of ZScript.
this is a pleasing aesthetic ( from https://www.keebtalk.com/t/post-your-keyboards/743/50 )
TIL the last Unreal Engine 1 game to be released was 2003's "Disney's Brother Bear". https://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/disneys-brother-bear
I particularly like the retro look of keycaps with a nice big center-printed legend. Something that evokes a C64 or UNIX terminal but is really humane to use and pleasant to look at.
10 years ago I bought a Das Keyboard Model S and while it still works fine and feels good to type on, I really regret getting the blank keycaps for all the times someone besides me tried to use my computer. Also aesthetically it's just totally not my thing anymore.
Very few things get my consumerist impulse itching but seeing all the beautiful colorful stuff people are doing with mechanical keyboards nowadays does.
Just really relieved to know that 1) I don't owe thousands of $$s in tax I wasn't expecting to (one year a while back I got slaughtered and have had a visceral anxiety about it ever since), 2) the last 11 years of my solo projects aren't going to be deleted suddenly. Feel like I should treat myself to something.
This week I did a pretty good job of being a grownup. Filed my taxes, and migrated all my Mercurial code repos off Bitbucket, who will be dropping and deleting all hg support on July 1st, and onto @heptapod hosting which after some research best meets my needs - I didn't want to switch to git. Heptapod has a very convenient "Import from BitBucket" function for projects and, being built atop Gitlab, a familiar interface.
