Rewrote Left from scratch again, it usually takes me 2-3 times before getting things right. Orca took 2 full rewrite before I found a way to write the assembly in a readable/maintainable way.

Naming is everything.
A couple lines of code I've written the past couple days that make me think:

One from my 9p service:
void destroy_universe(Universe* self);

And one from work:
_self = control;

@Scarlet Wow, so the British government denies receiving money from these domain name registrations although the registry is supposedly required to give them some of the profits for administration of the region, on top of the natives of the region being exiled to this day? I'm suprised this isn't more of a big deal.

Battled with my external monitor for 15 minutes this morning; Laptop would recognize it and mark it active, with correct resolution and everything, but the screen would stay dark and go in power management mode. I unplugged the monitor from power, that didn't help. Eventually I plugged it into my desktop and let it POST, and tried again, and it worked. Firmware must have been having a conniption fit :)

Finally finished Sandworms of Dune last night; overall a great wrap-up to the epic, but I wish the epilogue had been more minimal -- a bit too perfectly wrapped up for my tastes.

Finally got a chance to test yesterday evening, and the UX and quality of navigation/cartography both are on par with google maps. Very pleased to finally have a usable FOSS and privacy-aware alternative!

More and more I find that the web and apps and OS interfaces are becoming so unintuitive. Either it’s me or the design considerations in this regard are going down hill so much friction to do simple things

Friendly reminder to make some offline backups of your data!

Backing up my server and my workstation at this very moment...

Guys, a git hosting service which forces you to use a license approved by a horrible sham organization, and a second shady one (at best), is not the way to go.

6 months after writing a hefty, useful feature into our flagship program with a beautiful UI (which feature took about 2 months to get to that point), and letting the draft sit while I implemented refactoring and testing on the codebase, I caught it up with the refactors last week, and now am in the tedious process of implementing tests for it...

But when I am done, how sweet victory will taste :D

Shuffling the deck and showing the "hand"(topmost cards on the deck) each time. Seems to be working.

Can't decide if migrating everything to a VM is actually saving these projects from being swallowed by the abyss, or if it really is just taking these projects into the abyss with me.
