Hmm so a member of my team has a condition where magenta causes them seizures. To make the situation worse, our studio uses Unity, which defaults to bright magenta whenever a texture is missing. This is not something that can be modified at the engine level I believe. While this is a condition they are learning to manage, I still fear for their safety - is there a way to mute that color and nearby ranges at the OS level so that they can work in a safer environment? ICC profiles maybe??
When you get right down to it, the pandemic experience is kind of an inverse monomyth in which we are called to stay the fuck home, avoid crossing thresholds, remain in entirely non-magical circumstances, are isolated from lovers, don't really grow or change, and are, at last, eager to return to normal life
My God, it's full of stars...
Why is 4 out of 5 stars good for a restaurant but near-catastrophic for an Uber driver? Why do hotels and movies have two kinds of ratings but books and consumer electronics only have one?
I mean, a rating is just a rating, right? If I like it, I give it more stars. If not, less. I've made a small study of star ratings, which is to say I've read the work of marketing analysts, and it turns out it's not that simple.
What I'd like is a sort of meta-twine system that allows a community to write their own sitcoms or serials, pool them in seasons which maintain a loose narrative arc, and for everyone to be able to play episodes within a season, with their episode-to-episode choices kept locally consistent.
I could do it myself but I'd love for someone to have made it before
Set up a small web app for my kid to easily spin up an amazon ec2 minecraft server when they want to play with their overseas friends.
The project seemed simple enough, written in Python in 2019. I expected some code rot, having to apply some elbow grease to the Amazon side, but surprisingly I spent more time playing "guess which version of this python module actually works".
