Nobody's asking the _real_ questions at this Unreal Engine 5 preview event, such as: "how do we pull friends via your online service SDK when we're proxying a gameserver", lol. #OnlineServicesThings
I'm sure all this mind-blowing animation tech is really cool too.
uspol, CA-25 tea leaf reading
the CA-25 special election was a massacre; the dems should have been able to sleepwalk their way to the seat (the district is heavily D/Ind, and they lost by double digits).
Turnout is everything, and the Dems didn't bother trying to win that district after beating up a progressive insurgent in the primary. Hopefully it'll be a wake-up call for the fall.
Someday, I'm going to have to tell him I love the 1900s-1930s era so much for role-playing game background versimilitude reasons, lol.
I am managing a couple of projects that we're working on with contractors at work. One of whom is an extremely friendly man from Mexico City. The other week we were talking about my love for history, and how I've done a lot of reading about the history of Mexico.
Today, he asked if I could read spanish because he has some historical literature he'd like to send me 🤣 . Time to learn some spanish!
Also, we replaced our old, wobbly roof yesterday. This is a big peace of mind improvement! Was weird to watch a group of men working as a team again! Also weird and awkward: they thanked us repeatedly, presumably for giving them work to do? Few masks, no distancing. All hispanic.
Been some Centralia-coal-mine-level fires burning all week at work, but it's weird that we're big enough now to have a Team Mostly For That.
Netherrealm is shipping a major expansion during this crisis, which is enormous and the community is pretty hype. Making money is a good idea, I hear!
I'm recovering a bit from my funk and am now Mad About Politicians again :).
also the Buschs up here on plymouth has a pretty legit asian section. Better than Plum Market!
