Pinned toot

Hello! I've just moved servers (again) so seems like a good time for an post!

I'm Michael (he/him). I am a programmer by trade, game developer, tabletop GM and woodworker by hobby, and more recently I've been getting into rock climbing and writing.

By day I work for Stripe where I help to build Stripe Checkout.

I also have a super good dog named Flynn who I post pictures of pretty often.

Open sourced my script to generate a D&D 5e reference folder for use in Obsidian.

Makes for writing custom campaign content or looking stuff up on the fly super easy.

Havent posted in a while. Just came to say fuck cryptocurrency and fuck crypto bros.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

All code is strongly typed if you work out before programming

Can't stop thinking about how badly I want to play Quest

Outer Wilds is worth playing for the music alone, but it is also worth playing for the story alone, but it is also worth playing for the physics alone, but it is also worth playing for the creative settings alone, but it is also worth playing for the gameplay hook alone

Outer Wilds is a very good game and you should play it 🪐

Query esp for badly off/marginalised writers:

We're a volunteer/hobbyist group and don't have resources to pay for articles, but we're looking into fundraising to give creators who need it a pot to draw from when writing for us. We're not yet sure if it's possible & what shape this might take.

So if you can only write (whether or not you'd ever write for us) if reimbursed, what sort of payment levels would make that possible for 1000-2000wd pieces? Private responses welcome.

Please boost!

Complete game engine and dev environment with first class 2d support in addition to full 3d env, simple scripting language, understandable “scene” concept and a strong observable-like structure all in a single 20mb standalone executable my goodness <3

If you've always loved a story's world
but the writer's a bit abhorrent
the way to sort these feelings out
is pinching their stuff with bittorrent

So this is just the week of publications falling apart huh

Lazy fediverse question: Is anyone aware of voice or video chat that has or uses any kind of environmental audio? Thinking of large virtual gatherings at $day_job and how they collapse after a certain size. Something that literally lets people move towards/away from topics of interest/disinterest could be super useful.

I know this doesn’t help _much_ right now but just a quick shout out that it takes very little to just tell someone you appreciate them, their work, their values, their thoughts, their company, or just their presence in your life.

Say it to your friends, coworkers, family, anyone. Compliment people. It’s a superpower that can change someone’s day, week or hell, year.

Hell, here I am STILL thinking about a single compliment someone gave me in 2011. It goes a long way.
