I hope they're making a Switch remake for Oracle of Seasons/Ages like they did for Link's Awakening. I would buy that in a heartbeat!

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.

My reMarkable tablet arrived today which was 4 days earlier than it was supposed to!

Now that iOS 14 and friends have been out for a while, I've released v1.0.0 of Relay.swift, which removes support for iOS 13, macOS 10.15, etc. By doing so, I got to fix some bugs (thanks to StateObject) and improve the APIs so they mesh better with the rest of SwiftUI.

Love to be walking around Freeside and a random thug comes to attack me and see Veronica just deck him so hard he dies on the spot.

Yay! I finished Advent of Code with Rust, a language I was learning as I went along. And it worked: I definitely know Rust much better than I did before. I'm no expert, but I could start a project in it now without being totally overwhelmed, and that's pretty cool!

All I want for Christmas is to read everyone's stories of their family Christmas drama.

I would very much like an offshoot of The Adventure Zone but it's Sydney DMing for Teylor, Rileigh, and Tommy.

After this week, I'll be off work for two straight weeks. It would be so choice if I could somehow get myself a PS5 before then.

I'm not sure this is true; the elite continue to show their whole ass on Twitter at what feels like every opportunity.

Spent a bunch of time today making DNS do what I want but now it does what I want and I'm happy.

If your product or company can't succeed while working comfortable, sustainable hours, it doesn't need to exist.

I am a huge nerd who is eagerly awaiting the arrival of their new WiFi router like it's Christmas morning.

Actually defunding the police is a very good idea because the police are just government-funded killers with no accountability. Literally any other use of their budget would be better.

Decided to do this year's Advent of Code in Rust so I can actually finally learn this language for real.
