Strata is a game for Android. It's an insane brain bender, but that's what makes it great. Beautiful design, too. Try it out, see if you like it.

Just about completely fed up with Planetary Annihilation, because I can't tell if I'm dealing with a bug, or I just can't figure out how to load units onto the Astraeus. Interplanetary war is basically off-limits to me, which means that in any battle involving multiple planets, I literally cannot win.

Fuck this. I'm gonna finally figure out how to build an orbital fabricator, and send all my units via teleport.

For multiple reasons, it's like they hired Scout to do the voice for Demoman. Which... would probably make for a fantastic SFM remake.

I've listened to this like three times today already, and I'll probably play it a few more times before the day is out. This is one of those songs that just digs into my brain and makes me feel things.

This week is all about some features that were unlocked by using Docopt for command line flag parsing in DJDNS. The same treatment is coming to the binaries in the go-deje repo next week.

Finally, I'm going to open up a public DJDNS server for people to poke and prod. Remember, folks, this thing is easy as heck to grief, so don't take the data seriously.

Amazing. Some days you think we've moved on entirely to subtle racism, but nope, there's still holdouts in the "overt cartoon villain" department.

I hope he gets a lot of calls about BattleToads.

Just a quickie this week, covering a few positive changes to the browser interface and the djconvert codebase.

Matchstick has now passed their funding goal by $40K at the time of this writing, and still going up. This is in the first two days, the Matchstick team has not even defined stretch goals yet. Beautiful.

For those of you who haven't heard of it before, it's basically a FirefoxOS-based fully open competitor to the Chromecast. Do all the stuff a Chromecast can do, without icky proprietary software! Write apps in web languages! Customize the interface if you feel like it!

That's not a full description, obviously, but please do check out the Kickstarter page. It's very cool, and exactly the kind of thing I've been wishing would exist, for months now.
Matchstick, the first HDMI stick based on Firefox OS, is the best way to experience your favorite movies, music, and games on your HDTV

More and more often, I have days where I'm just fucking tired of reddit's shit. I think it's because I've slowly drifted away from core hivemind philosophy, despite being an atheist straight white guy (with a literal neckbeard). It's like when you've kinda grown up past your friends, but you can never really move on, because you're still hanging out with the same people, you're just snootier and less satisfied about it.

I'm not sure whether there is a social media network (or framework) that is able to subvert the trap of people reacting according to the following checklist:

1. Determine what labels are applicable to person.
2. Use those labels to quickly summarize that person's entire identity and determine friend or foe.
3. React almost entirely based on the tuple of (topic, is_friend).

So maybe I'm just picky enough now that no online social group will not grate on me. I'm at a point in my life where my opinions are still a big soup of ideas that sometimes contradict, and I've always been able to see issues from too many sides not to have empathy, so there's really no environment where I can just glide frictionlessly by agreeing with everyone who's already there. I'm also at the point where I really want to support a platform that supports complex personal opinions and civil disagreement.

In the end, it's hard to say where the line of responsibility lies between the community and the software. While the software can steer the way the community reacts, 4chan is basically the same as any other image board under the hood, it's the people that make it notable (in good or bad ways, depending on the phase of the moon, and he who incites the loudest lulz).

This isn't really a call to action, or a big personal statement that I'm dropping out of any social network. Just a bit of good old-fashioned frustration venting. In the end, you can never expect perfection from anything - you just have to decide which level of imperfection you can put up with.

This week, I've put a lot of work into polishing logging, so that you can administrate your DJDNS instance that much easier. More updates are going to be coming in right down to the wire, so the change list won't be finally until end of screencast.

Not that I need to rush to have stuff to show off, I just like getting a whole "theme" of things done in a week. Makes for easier headline decisions.

Lots of changes to the the innards of DEJE, as trustless phases sync gets implemented piece by piece. There's very little left that doesn't dip into the actual Bitcoin part of things, which I'd been planning to hold off until the rest of the stack was more mature.

Unfortunately, this makes it a challenge to show off anything that's "demo different." I'll give it a solid shot, though.

Story
Tagline
I like pretzels, but not more than any other food.
Introduction
I'm a musician/programmer, I don't have nearly the free time I wish I did, and I'm currently coding ConcurrenTree with occasional work on Park, and trying to get through College despite my self-destructively lazy tendencies so I can get a job.
Bragging rights
Once set a napkin on fire with my mind. It was pretty easy, I just used my mind to tell my hand to hold the napkin over the open flame of a candle, and then all of a sudden it just started burning. It was pretty awesome until I dropped it on the floor in panic.
Basic Information
Gender
Male
Used to go to this park from my school all the time. Bathrooms weren't that great, but the park itself was, and maybe the bathrooms have improved since then? Lots of good memories there, great place to practice football.
