I've been on here less lately because I deleted basically all of the time suck apps from my phone, web browser included. Anything that I don't use like a tool (i.e. camera, translator) got the boot. My daily average is down to 20 minutes from 2 hours.
It's just an experiment, really, but so far the itch to check my phone has subsided significantly, I'm less discontent just doing nothing, and I'm reading more.
I'm still on screens a ton because of work, but it's a positive step so far.
Another busted snowblower to add to the a2mi pile.
@samfirke you use a fancy manual contraption, right? Can you remind me of the name?
P.S. it’s for Mac or Windows at the moment. I haven’t tried building for Linux yet but am up for trying.
We at Scope Creep Studios (@csalzman and myself) are seeking play testers for the alpha build of our all-ages bug parachuting game, Bug Drop. We’ve been working on it off and on since November of 2018, an eternity ago.
What’s involved? We’ll give you the latest build of the game and a document (probably a Google Doc) with some optional feedback questions to fill out while you play.
If you can read this, you are invited! DM me with your email to get started. Please feel free to boost/pass on.
I am almost done with several projects, a video game and an ambient album I whipped up around the holidays. I hope to have more to announce here soon.
Winter pandemic living is tiring but I’m retaining my sanity so far. Taking walks is essential. The news is less stressful too, and that helps.
tbf it was taking a deep dive into a specific policy... not to discount the decidedly not boring executive actions Biden already made.
Still, I look forward to slightly more boring days ahead.
Conversation between my wife Jeanne and 4yo Giorgia this morning:
Giorgia: Can I be a voter when I grow up?
Jeanne: Yes, you can.
Giorgia: Can I be the new president when I grow up?
Jeanne: Yes honey, if you work hard you can be.
Giorgia: Ok, because I want there to be lots of parades.
Kid’s got her first term agenda figured out already.
