Hey folks, I'm not dead, and those cute little screenshots of the sheep game aren't going anywhere. Just need to focus my energies on my paid work right now.

Which, you'll hear about soon!

@codeacula I think Dark Souls does this, where "souls" are used to buy stat upgrades and also stuff from stores.

@codeacula Yakuza 0. I know people don't think it's an RPG (it is but whatever) either way the money you earn to buy things is also how you upgrade stats and purchase moves. It becomes a balancing act of leveling up while still having enough cash to do other things. It also encourages you to do the mini games that make you money (cabaret club and apartment sim specifically)

I'm thinking of an RPG based around XP being the main form of currency. Is there any game you can recommend where this has been done?

So I decided to take a look at Godot engine just to get away from Unity for awhile and I'm a bit miffed that its one of those things again where the developers have rolled their own scripting language only to end up integrating C# anyway. Language mindshare is important.

At least it the C# integration seems decently done.

Tonight's distraction? Using the Monte Carlo Pi test to check the distribution of random numbers generated via my Linear Congruential Random Number Generator!

It appears to all work correctly!

In other news: large primes are VERY USEFUL THINGS

To be more transparent about server blocks, I have decided to follow the example of others and publish a list: github.com/Gargron/mastodon.so

That list is now linked from our about page. It also explains how different block severities work.

You might notice that bofa.lol is on the list. It's at the very least a temporary measure because our mods had to deal with a lot of problematic content coming from that place yesterday.

"But I want to use the whip for everything!" Don't worry, I've got you covered.

@funkeh ALL developers are real developers. Web developers, developers using "easy languages", developers using visual "drag&drop" tools, professional developers, hobbyist developers...

It's fine is some type of development isn't for you, but don't be a gate keeper and put down others for their choice of tools or methodology.
