My copy of DOOT came with a literally blank disk. Luckily the key works to activate one steam, but box instructions do not say to do this
Look, I'm all about getting paid for my gamedev, but if you think you have to in order to 'be a gamedev' you're not entirely on point there
If I copy a link in @google
Hangouts, I for one *love* how it converts it into some 900 character google request INSTEAD OF THE GODDAMN LINK
Wow at Celebrity Big Brother correlation in the data!
My hunch is that the majority of the female share is body shaming. It can be a mean mean place out there.
doesn't say the number of men or women, maybe there are some very active female accounts.
For reference, the paper: demos.co.uk/files/MISOGYNY…
Small classifier training sets + only 1 human classifier, otherwise ok.
Apparently 50% of misogynistic tweets come from women. bbc.co.uk/news/technolog…
That surprises me quite a bit.
Jr. Dev: How do you use BigData?
Sr. Dev: You don't, It uses you.
Not much angers me more than getting linked to Pt 2 of an article, and Pt 2 doesn't link to Pt 1 in the first paragraph.
Kale finds out about @twitter
Welcome to @twitter
's collective Kale stream twitter.com/zapakitul/stat…
this! That is gonna be so spammy, and also feel like constant eavesdropping. Don't wanna see that if I don't know both
For giggles, and to simulate this experience, I guess I'm gonna @twitter
for all my conversation starters from now on
The new @twitter
policy means all of your conversation initiations are on your timeline.
Every '@<username> hey'
Problem is, @twitter
make policies that really indicate they don't actually think beyond a single step

Might actually do some game development tonight.
After 6 weeks prep we will finally open our doors this Saturday! Come see us and get #chillihappy
Microwave wattage settings never fucking match the wattages used on food packaging.
How can that be a hard thing to get right?
Well this isn't concerning at all @Sophos
Oh dear gods there's someone on r/gamedev who's making a 2d platformer MMO in game maker
Their job is ripping people off. If no one fell for it, they wouldn't be able to keep doing it
Hey ‘free steam key’ people - do you have a job that pays? How about doing it for free? Making games is fun but it’s also my job.
Anybody near Ringwood wanna come over and give me a backrub?
Finest, A-grade 100% organic shit-tweeting.
Gotta admit, that last tweet tickled me.

My back is *killing me* today. No idea why, but it feels like I'm wearing somebody else's spine, and one that doesn't fit me very well.

Developer got retweeted by the #indiedev
Either directly through Steam/Itch.io, Gamasutra, friends, Twitter and/or Reddit.
A mix of social media, gaming websites, and people I know.
YouTube videos mostly (let's plays and reviews/showcases), otherwise twitter and friends.
* The developers tweeting (and being RTed)
* People tweeting about 'em
* YT videos twitter.com/UdellGames/sta…
For me, I'd mostly heard of them through reddit and twitter links to let's plays or funny pictures.
To go along with @DarkestKale
's earlier tweet about games press, how did you hear about the last few indie titles you bought?
Holy fucking shit they have done so many mariachi covers of nerd hits.
This is what I've needed in my life.
Hold up, humanity, I've found a mariachi cover of Duck Tales' The Moon theme.
Thought: Do you actually read 'games press' (magazines/websites) on a regular basis?
Like, on its own they were probably fine episodes, but the first one was *so* good everything that followed felt really weak.
I really liked the first episode proper of the newer Battlestar Galactica, but after that taut amazingness the rest felt a bit shit.
PS. If I *am* your dad, then go to bed, son and or daughter, it's far too late for you to be on the myspaces.
Or be lazy and do a solid colour skybox, fuck it, I'm not your dad.
That way looking at far-off, fogged items that are above you doesn't contrast with the non fog-ringed portion of the skybox.
Also, for a cheap technique for your fog shader, consider reducing fog quantities based on vertical viewing angle.
Any time I see foggy geometry starkly contrasted against the sky it sets off an old UE2 level design rage. MAKE THE SKYBOX MATCH YOUR FOG
