Here’s a long write-up. Under the cut because, really, it’s long. It’s edited from a log I kept while everything was going on. Seriously, you don’t need to read this.
It’s been long enough without constructive reply from Sparklin, I have no idea where to go from here, and I can’t actually make any progress whatsoever. I’m rewriting the game.
So go ahead, quote me to your heart’s content or whatever you want. I’d appreciate being told if you use it, but you don’t need to. There are more details on the about page if you need them.
I am really sorry about not posting anything, for the probably three or four of you following me. I posted the xkcd panel a while ago, and I still remember that. I’m still self-aware.
I’ve just been working on a very large project for the last few months, which I’m excited to be able to show you pretty soon. But I have to keep the details under wraps for a little longer, because my performance anxiety won’t let me release anything until it’s absolutely 100% perfect.
That, combined with a lack of material to write about that isn’t related to this project, is why this blog’s gone silent for so long. To be honest, I never expected to blog regularly, but I was hoping for something more frequent than this at least. Oh well.
It’ll be a month or two, probably.
(Oh, and I forgot to make a blog post about it earlier, but I finished up that Homestuck aspect list with a companion class list, if you’re interested in that.)
(Yes, this is a bit of a weird blog post, but since the list isn’t really a blog post but I want people following the blog to be notified about it, I have to do it this way.)
Sorry about disappearing for… holy hell, three months? I didn’t realize it was quite that long! Life happened and I wasn’t able to find much time to post here, plus there just wasn’t that much happening interesting enough to post about.
That first factor is changing. I think I’ll have enough time to post more. As for topics… hopefully I’ll be able to find some.
(In unrelated news, I’ve removed Google Analytics from this site, because I looked at it exactly zero times in total.)
UPDATE 2016-11-10: I no longer use this. It’s here for posterity, but in the future please use
I always forget to use sudo. Every time. To save me a few seconds, I wrote groot.sh (guarantee root). It’s a small shell script that simply checks if you’re root. If you are, it runs its arguments as a program; if you aren’t, it warns you and gives you a 3-second window to cancel before running its arguments as a program as root. Use it like this:
alias brew='/path/to/groot.sh brew'
and presto, every time you run Homebrew, you are root. (Homebrew in particular is annoying because if you run as a user it does everything but the last step, and you need to
brew link <...> instead of just
brew install <...>-ing.)
