I’ve been even more into board games than usual lately. Appropriately enough I’m also reading Iain Banks’ β€œThe Player of Games”.

Stack o’ games for Friday afternoon at the office.

I mean, there's probably going to be some give and take at some point, particularly in regards to cases that almost never come up. But deep knowledge of the underlying code base is generally not a good starting point for UX design.

The more I work with the UX team at work the more I appreciate why you don't have your developers do design work, because we'll be, whether intentionally or otherwise, biased toward what's easy to code and not what's easiest for the user.

Every time you give me an "unsubscribe" link in your emails and it doesn't work, it just increases my desire to mark anything I don't care about anymore as junk.

Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.

Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.

Played some Apex Legends with a friend. I like it well enough so far, but I like the Titanfall games so I guess that's not too surprising.

In fact, if you could just stop playing multiplayer games entirely so I don't ever have to deal with you, that'd be ideal.

If you don't want to play Apex Legends because it's an SJW game, well... good. I don't want to play it with you anyway.

Finally picked this up. Apparently the father and daughter who designed it are local, too.

I really value having people to hang out with who are good at making social noises, because I feel like I'm kind of reserved and it's nice to have someone who's good at carrying the conversation.

Guess I could see if anything's going on in the local furry community but I've been more likely to stay on the edge of that and hang out with more specific groups of closer friends for quite some time now.

The rest of the fam are out of town for a week and a half and I'm not quite sure what to do with myself, hmm. Guess I've got D&D on Wednesday, at least.

Hmm, guess I'll need someone to play with if I'm gonna play Apex Legends because I'm not playing a squad-based BR game with voice chat with randos. Nope nope nope.

"I've done a lot of work in both Angular and React-"
"Okay, okay, it was just Angular."
"FINE, only Angular 1."

Okay, maybe I won't wear my Lying Cat t-shirt on a day I'm helping conduct interviews.

I like FFXII’s thing of sending you back to the same dungeons and having you delve deeper into them and find areas that were previously inaccessible.

I wonder if I'm the only person to get the 'strip of maggoty flesh' loot item in FFXII and immediately start singing "I's the B'y".
