I really enjoyed AoC's puzzle for day 16 this year. Doing a bunch of pattern matching in Elixir to decode binary data is fun, really happy with the solution I ended up with.

Once again, I got a new PB for Lost Judgment in today's stream: 2:55:27, under 3 hours for the first time!

It seems that not having to go to work anymore does not make me immune to migraines.

Got a new PB for the Lost Judgment speedrun while streaming on Tuesday: 3:08:51! Thanks to the folks who were hanging out for this, it was really fun. I'm planning to stream more attempts soon, including at least one this weekend, so look out for that if you're interested.

This week is my last week working at Stripe. I'm really gonna miss all the great people I've gotten to work with, but I'm long overdue for some rest. Not sure what comes next, I'll figure that out later.

Yesterday, I did my first attempt at a Lost Judgment Any% speedrun. Under 4 hours was my goal, and I came in just under that, so I'm pretty happy! Lots of room here to improve.

If I ever start a company, we'll use Slack but there'll be no work talk allowed in there, only shitposting.

Just ordered a pill bottle cap that tells you how long it's been since you last opened it, because I consistently can't remember if I already took my ADHD meds or not.

So if I didn't manage a PS5 preorder, am I just out of luck until launch day?

I hope everyone is having fun with Among Us. I really wish I enjoyed deception games like that more.

Thinking about streaming a good chunk of my playing of Super Mario 3D All-stars. First stream will be tonight after I make myself dinner.

I've got InfluxDB and Grafana running on my new Raspberry Pi, so now I'm just looking for things to measure and track and put on dashboards.

Back at work after a week off so of course I'm sitting here just waiting for a macOS update to finish installing.

It's tempting to start another save of The Outer Worlds to do a total himbo beefcake character and go for the secret dumb ending.

Just finished The Outer Worlds and got a bit emotional at the closing montage with the impact of all your choices. I really tried to do the right thing at every step, and it felt real good to be told those things mattered to this world.

The Outer Worlds feels like the spiritual successor to Mass Effect 2 I didn't know I needed. All I care about is making my companions happy, they're all precious and I love them.

Does the orange sky mean Hacker News has taken over all of California?

I came mighty close to dropping out of college near the end (I was just over it), but I didn't. If I had to do it over Zoom though? I'd be outta there.

The best bit from The Good Place is still Pillboi addressing Michael and Tahani as "sharks."

The Outer Worlds is pretty good so far, but I'm surprised how low-quality the Switch port is. I know they had to make compromises but I'm pretty sure the Switch is capable of more than this.

I watched the entire first season of Harley Quinn last night. That show is absurdly good, I needed those laughs.
