Japanese Music Labels Let Me Buy Your Music Challenge 2021

Overslept... Missed a boring 2 hour meeting, woke up feeling extra refreshed. So I guess it's a win?

When I updated the LineageOS ROM on my phone, the alarm sound changed for all my existing alarms.

I actually like the new sound better! The catch is that it doesn't exist anywhere in the dropdown menu... So now I've got no way to set my favourite sound for new alarms :blobcatFacepalm:

Even Wikipedia has resorted to dialogues where the options are "Yes" and "Maybe Later". This is truly the darkest timeline.

might still do a few last-minute balance adjustments to it before the #lispgamejam deadline but I'm gonna go ahead and call it done: Bloip Bloip is published! it's a falling blocks (or blobs in this case) puzzle game where you try to set up chain combos to clean up plastic waste. it has mission mode, endless mode, and multiplayer mode.

i had never noticed this about zsnes before last night.

pay close attention to the shadow rendering on all the UI elements (menus, mouse cursor, dialogs).

every element in the UI has a *depth* and the shadows fall on each thing in the stack appropriate to how deep they are in the screen!

this is all in tightly-optimized handwritten x86 ASM pixel drawing code running on DOS-era hardware from the 90s, just to add a detail that makes the interface *subconsciously* more pleasant and intuitive but won't be noticed by 99%+ of people.

nowadays we all have powerful GPUs in devices of all sizes and they're all wasted on a design landscape that's a flat, solid-color, sea of low-contrast nothing.

(nobody should use zsnes for emulation in 2021, btw - not only is it horrendously inaccurate, there's also a VM escape vulnerability kicking around in it. but it's got some lovely stuff in its GUI!)

My stomach went "plonk" and I thought it was the mastodon notification sound

Sooo looking forward to the end of the year, when I go full-time GBA dev and never have to write another line of goddamn PHP ever again

Thanks to the woefully inadequate music modernization act, music will actually start entering the public domain in the united states for the first time in January!

The Citizen DJ site provides a good overview of the situation.


This means that the number of recordings available for study, re-release, remixing, sampling, etc. will increase dramatically.

I want to do *something* to celebrate, and I feel like the good citizens of the fediverse might join me in this?

We reached day 365 of ferret pics on the Roguelikes Discord. What a truly momentous occasion!

People making jokes about the Facebook services going down make me sick. Anyone who was using an Oculus headset at the time is currently trapped in VR, and if they die there then they die in real life.
