MY 90's-BLEACH-BLONDE-LAYNE STALEY'ish-LOOKING SHEPHARD

No that's eminem.

LD:PotB - NPC dialogue is giving me 15 bits for the NPC's name, and 127 bits for the text. So 15 and 127 characters in UTF8, respectively.

Also fiddled about with Afterburner 2 some more. Found out that you only shoot one missile at a time, so you have to mash it a few times to get everything you locked. Some of my issues with this game may have been a pebkac woopz.

3DS is still murder on my tiny effeminate hands though.

note to self, play Trail of the Sun and Nanatsu Kaze tonight. Also possibly sky odyssey

Kishi Bashi - Once Upon a Lucid Dream

Got LD:PotB to start displaying longer dungeon names. Tried to do that with town names but it crashed for various reasons that I could fix but I'm not gonna mess with it cause the payoff would be super limited.

I need to actually /play/ games tonight.

-- edit --

sr2 - Not really in the mood to enjoy games right now. welp.

I never actually finish games so I try to avoid playing stuff that only opens up after you invest time in it.

I don't think Pinkie Pie would ever envision a party like the one Alabama Thunderpussy throws here.  

This place gets weird when I'm at work.

Speaking of work.

Defacto project leaders keep changing direction on what they want us to do. Yesterday we were gonna write use cases, so I started doing that. This afternoon they're like nope changing direction. Welp.

I need to stop thinking about work, it's just kind of upsetting me.

Also I shotgunned like half a coffee after lunch and got some delightful caffeine shakes. I can't really talk well when I get those.

We have this conversation every time I go to Magnolia Thunderpussy >:C

wrt local music stores though, Used Kids had hardly anything the last time I was there. It was sad.

Also man I was making a vegemite and cheese quesadilla but I like messed up and all the cheese is on the bottom half and all the vegemite is on the top half and how do I fail this badly at microwaving cheese.

My mental state:

1. Realize Margaret Thatcher died in 2013.
2. Wonder why I can't remember 2014.

Went down to Magnolia Thunderpussy to pick up copies of Kishi Bashi and Owen Pallette's 2014 albums. Did that -- they had In Conflict hidden in a box for no reason so wevz -- and figured I'd go to Till and get some vegan poutine for lunch.

Started moseying up 5th, when I noticed this helicopter circling around. Thought that was pretty weird. Then three cop cars come by, sirens blazing, and I'm like yeah F.D.S. and went back to High Street. Ended up getting like Thai whatever and fried biscuits for lunch.

Also there's some hockey thing occurring that I don't care about.

Had a vegemite sandwich and skyr for dinner, and spent the last couple hours doing GUI translations for a thing.

Saints Row 2 - I did a pushback and... a thing with a thing hummer stretch hummer. I like how the npcs in this game are as psychotic as the player.

LD: PotB - KEEP ON TRUCKIN'.

LDPotB - Finished with the items more or less. Working on the monsters now. The monster names are obscure as hell.

Don't worry, she's in a better place now (cue punching the priest that would say that to the parents)

I agree with you entirely and there's even an old adage in the form of a joke here about that.
Translated for your pleasure (and as best as I can remember a shitty old joke)

A man most devoted to god is walking around and then finds himself caught in quicksands.
Having a deep faith, a proper life and knowing that his work is not yet done on this Earth, he doesn't panic and awaits for a divine intervention to save him.
A passing firetruck sees him and asks him if he needs help.
The priest replies "No need. God will save me."
The firemen leave.
A while later, the firetruck comes again and the firemen ask "We're on our way back, are you sure you don't want us to pull you out?"
The priest replies "No need. God will save me."
The priest dies.
In heaven, the priest goes to god and asks him "God, why did you not save me?"
God replies "I sent you a firetruck and twice at that. What more did you want?"

God shook his mighty head and sighed. "I did save you," He said, motioning to the small, blue sphere very far below him. "Earth is terrible. Trees clawing at the sky. Birds screaming for sex. Water endlessly carving away land. People baring their teeth in joy."
The priest stood back, mouth agape. Part of him wanting to give God a bro-hug or something, part of him wanting to be all fuck this shit I'm going to hell.
The two halves of his internal conflict began to fight like a pair of wolves, and he knew the wolf that won would be the one he fed, but he didn't feed either and so they cannibalized each other and turned into this totally crazy wolf ouroboros.
Shit got ridiculously yiffy.


(Note: additions entirely made up of stuff I found on twittlr this is not my fault).

Anyhow, I'm finally winding down Ys Memories of Celceta.  I'd started it ages ago

Goddammit jawsh you've been playing Ys forever are you even past Bionicle's knee yet !!?!?!?

Anyway, translating item names in Lunatic Dawn. This is taking forever because a lot of them refer to really obscure things/are bastardized Chinese.

Job be like

"okay here's some screenshots of the old system you're rewriting. Use these to come up with the specs for the new system. Also these aren't in order or properly annotated. HAVE FUN."

Meanwhile I just want to shadow someone for like half an hour so I can see how they're actually using the thing :(

Anyway I should learn how to reverse engineer image compression. idk why but I feel like that'd be a useful life skill.

I wonder if you could use like NLP techniques to compare the source image file to an unencrypted version taken from VRAM and do some markov models and bayesian analysis on that bitch and get like, the algorithm. Morphophonology's kind of like lossy compression!
