Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

I'm between stuff to do at work, so I've been reading papers about Haskell and implementing the ideas as haskell:y as possible in Java. Works... surprisingly well once you find a middle road between Java's clunkiness and Haskell's weirdness. But now I have a expressive powerful monadic parser librar...

Re: Thoughts for ships

You can totally learn. I went in at age 30 with zero dancing background (apart from getting drunk and flailing my arms like that David Boreanaz video you linked). The main requirement is a bit of tenacity and not knowing when it's time to give up. There's actually quite a lot of nerds in the dance ...

My hobby: Expressing inverse square laws in terms of the area of an implicit geometric shape between the two points. Circles are especially annoying to use when the force is attractive and the two points are in an orbit.

Dark Souls 3, X-COM 2, and Factorio are probably my real highlights. Played and loved the hell out of all three.

Overwatch was fun in that annoying sort of blizzardy way where you kinda rage a bit too much and eventually shrivel into an embittered husk of mostly salt.
