"Learning vs Learning"
Video tutorials are helpful, but focus too much on step-by-step with very specific outcomes, which is like giving us the fish instead of teaching us to fish. So now I'm looking for more traditional, instructor-lead learning options.
Notion, birdsite, sorry
Dorry to bring "that" over here, but the Notion account is laying out how to use their tables to create a relational database with rollup features that might be of interest to some.
Sowing the Seeds of Discord - Moderation
Here's how we set up the Discord server to gate entry until new users accept our EULA.
Other department manager just let it slip that I might be getting a minion.
Probably not a minion, because our office isn't large enough to accommodate another layer of management, and hopefully not because I don't want to BE in management, but at least I know there's enough work to be done that they need ANOTHER developer.
Considering I am one app dev in an ocean of DB devs, that's big news.
"Quick Look - Boundless"
Dare I invoke the sacred name of Landmark to describe Boundless? The answer is inside, dear friends.
So Boundless website claims you can "rent a personal world", which is interesting.
As much as I am intrigued by some of the features this game offers, especially in terms of guilds and towns and commerce, let's be frank.
People are dicks. I think I'm going to abandon my current plot and move to where @arislyn and her son are because we might be able to start a town, or at least camp the land so randos can't infringe for the future.
I haz a house #Boundless
GUYS! Starflight 1 AND 2! $0.89 on GOG!
Another Sunset - Wildstar
Wildstar had a lot of good ideas, but I personally believe that their decision to focus on bringing back the old-school "game begins at the level cap" raiding focus was too niche for the level of work they put into realizing the game world.
A lot of folks seem to have issues with the mechanics, or the art, or the humor, and I respect that. I feel that maybe if the game had started with a different direction, it could have been a real winner.
