techbro red flags 

when people say "don't do that, it's illegal" i scoff.

being gay is illegal in some parts
and having slaves was LEGAL in some places in quite recent times

so...defining morality by what is legal or not is...to say the least, problematic.

Hey friends! I'm going to be showing off some games at MakerX in Burnie, Tasmania this weekend. If you happen to be in the area, drop by and say hi :) eventbrite.com.au/e/makerx-bur

Anyone have concrete instructions for how to handle saving games to files in a best-practice way that reduces risk of corrupted saves? Like a tutorial or maybe even a Unity-ready code snippet?

Reminder: "oh, we don't talk about money" / "we don't really compare salaries here" / etc. is literal capitalist propaganda designed to keep you from recognizing the true value of your labor.

Insist on a frank discussion of the compensation you and those around you receive for your time and effort.

An excellent (German) article on the killer clowns ruling our world: not just Boris Johnson and Donald Trump but many others, too. The reason, the author argues, is that capital used to be interested in a functional state but now oligarchs are interested in chaos and distraction, which is why they finance these killer clowns, and that taxes are not only necessary to finance the state but to break the cycle of inheritance. Let’s stop the rich from passing on their wealth!
