On Odd Psychology

So Teslagrad was frustrating me playing it, so I decided to watch a lets-play of it because I wanted to see what else was in the game. Then I was frustrated that the let’s player wasn’t playing the game right. Thanks brain, that’s nice and rational.

On Page Rank

I’m pretty sure I have to start a blood feud with the developers of No Man’s Sky. Every E3 the gaming press falls all over themselves and my pagerank for ‘procedurally generated’ drops by a noticable factor. Two years ago I was on the first page, a year ago, the fourth, and now, the 36th […]

On Cloud-Based Solutions

So almost my entire week was effectively wasted on bullshit because Heroku decided to randomly stop working. For those of you who don’t know what Heroku is, it’s a cloud based worker spawner with the absolute bare minimum of a scheduler tacked on. You pay for CPU time, so if you just have a bunch […]

On Several Bridges Too Far

So I just heard a disembodied voice coming from my headphones on the floor announcing “Congratulations, you’ve won a trophy”. My immediate thought was “Ah crap, which web window did that/how infected with malware am I”.

On Logins

I just went to log into my email and instead logged into my work email without even thinking about it. So that’s a thing.

Adventures in Infuriation

I’ve basically been without internet on my desktop for two days now and I am incensed. I’ve reset my IP stack, I’ve tried to get wireless tethering going to see if the issue actually is the router or not (which failed because apparantly you aren’t allowed to share wireless connections over usb on the nexus4, […]

On The Files Of Dresden

The new Dresden Files is out, and it was pretty good, though it was by necessity a bit groundworky for the remainder of the series. On the one hand I’m happy because new content, but on the other I’m annoyed because release schedules for books are so shit. Won’t be another one for at least […]
