Is Amy Schumer funny? September 30, 2016, 3:07 pm
I keep hearing her name so I happened across a movie recently starring this foulmouthed pig. Is this the standard female comedians are being held to now? Ham-fisted bathroom humor from 5th grade? Is she the female version of Seth Macfarlane, say or do anything to appeal to the lowest common denominator? Whatever the case, not a single chuckle left my body.

NG2 is still happening. And I am likely sleep deprived. But it is.

Another reason for me to upgrade from Windows XP September 30, 2016, 6:07 am
oops: http://www.ghacks.net/2016/09/27/fi...ws-xp-or-vista/

Now, I understand them not wanting to bother with XP compatibility anymore, however I think it's a bit shitty how they are actually adding some code to prevent the installation on XP. There is plenty of software that doesn't officially support Windows XP, however it still works with it just fine. For example, the official installer for Google Japanese IME refuses to install on XP, however I found some custom installer that works and I haven't really encountered any issues with the program.

So I think it's silly to outright block the installation. But I guess in some ways it's better than having to deal with countless complaints from stupid XP users about the program not working anymore. And maybe someone will make a custom installer just like with that IME thing.

You will never September 30, 2016, 3:38 am
This is probably drunken stupidity...but I also find it quite mind blowing.

I just had a very mundane experience...I looked at the corner of my bathroom where the ceiling meets two walls and thought to myself...wow, nobody else will ever experience this, and I will never experience that moment again.

Fuck, man...I witnessed a literal once in a lifetime event, and it was something so simple.

All moments are once in a lifetime. Cherish them.

Getting Drunk September 28, 2016, 6:09 pm
Shit, I just got drunk for the first time last weekend and it was awful, I was loud, I swerved all over the place when I walked and the next morning I felt sick, and just slept the whole day.

So why do people enjoy getting drunk?

Building a healthy relationship with Doom September 28, 2016, 5:53 pm
I find it difficult to build a healthy relationship with Doom. When I get excited about it, it occupies a huge portion of my mind and becomes almost like an obsession. After some time in that state I naturally become sick of the game and can get rather emotional about that temporary disappointment. So I try to get out of it. Then at some point I get excited again, come back, and the circle repeats. I find it hard to treat Doom as just some side activity, instead I have to either dive into it 100% or completely abstain from it.

Not sure if that's due to the nature of the game or maybe some ridiculous rules I made up in my head that I don't even know about. It's strange. Maybe I just don't have enough things in my life and that's what causes me to take what little I have too seriously. I guess if I had like 30 hobbies and shuffled them around all the time, I wouldn't have to obsess over just one of them so much. And I probably should be trying new things more often instead of sticking to the old ones all the time and expecting them to always remain fresh and exciting.

Have you ever had similar feelings about a hobby of yours?

Calamity progress September 28, 2016, 6:57 am
There has been none.

Right now my programming focus is on Binderoo, the open-sourced rapid iteration framework using D that I'm developing at work.

Once it's up to a minimum level of functionality, I'm going to port everything I've done in Calamity so far to D. The reasons I stated for using C++ originally, eh, I'm over it. I've wasted far too much time in C++ doing stuff that's simple in D lately. It's time to move on.

More about my rationale for leaving C++ behind can be found in the presentation I made at GDC Europe last month.

Calamity will be a good testbed for expanding Binderoo to handle COM interfaces since the current implementation is DX11 based. This further helps out for UWP apps, as secretly UWP handles are just COM interfaces that the compiler manages for you.

Once the porting work is done, I can get on to the meat of the implementation.
