remember when a bunch of open source projects adopted codes of conduct and the free speech of badass rockstar 10X programmers was trammeled unjustly, preventing them from being their true brilliant selves and grinding the productivity of all such projects to a halt? haha me neither, a lot of people just felt a little safer and more welcome to contribute.

WAD Wednesday happening at the regular time today, in about 30 minutes at 7pm PST:

Been too worn out in the evenings lately to do much on spare time projects or play games, so we've been watching lots of Deep Space 9. Season 4 has been quite good so far! This episode about labor organizing was great:

Boring: I switched to Antergos from Ubuntu in 2015 because I was sick of how much of a pain it was to get the latest versions of software (at the time, OBS) from PPAs vs rolling release plus AUR which makes locally compiled installs a sane thing to do.

Damn, I guess the Linux distro I use on my home desktop is shutting down:
Basically it'll function like a normal Arch install from this point on, which is as graceful a failure mode as I could ask for.

@revenant hi, i was going to add a line to the in-game credits for WadSmoosh for omgifol, what name should i credit you under, and any others that should be included?

WAD Wednesday returns this evening in about 50 minutes (7pm PST):

Digital Antiquarian's march through games history has reached 1993, and I am pretty excited to read it. The author's policy on deadnames still drives me up a wall but the site is inarguably a valuable document.

Aforementioned mapinfo was an experiment into the viability of a "Master Levels Deluxe Edition". Four of the mappers who contributed to the Master Levels were either making maps in a series - Kvernmo's Cabal, Dr Sleep's sadly unfinished Inferno series, and Jim Flynn's Titan series - or like Chris Klie submitted twice as many maps as made the cut. So it's a very natural fit for the equivalent of a "deluxe edition" album reissue of demos, outtakes, alt versions etc. Probably gonna try this.

Vanilla Essence is a very good GZDoom mod that lets you toggle between whatever modern defaults you have and a glorious 1994 look that is as pure as you need it to be, and back, with a single button press.

no WAD Wednesday tonight folks, sorry. being sick suuuucks

ah the concept of the Memento Mori, Latin for "think about skeletons"

Really enjoyed how dense Tuca & Bertie's first episode was with gags and interesting creative choices, how its world is simultaneously surreal and banal, supernatural phenomenon but also people have dead end jobs.
