There will be a thing for Assembly, the demoparty here in Finland that turns 30 this year.


And the IMPORTANT part:

You're encouraged to participate. (Voting wise.)

Seriously, please tune in and see what is going on and participate. Yes, even folks who don't have a CLUE what the 'demoscene' is, I'm all for you learning what it is via this.

Yes, boostage allowed/encouraged.

Now, it SHOULD be on the Assembly twitch channel, which is twitch.tv/assemblytv .

(I'm avoiding ANOTHER discussion of the Assembly website right now.)

TIL about QZAP, the Queer Zine Archive Project, a website that archives scans of old... queer zines! Sadly it doesn't seem to have anything from Finland yet. If you have some you've collected over the years, maybe look into submitting some into QZAP? archive.qzap.org/

holy freaking ... THIS is how you make an arcade game in 2021


(ok, that's from the Helsinki arcade that has purchased one, but check out the board and what was done... yes, ok, it was done on other things first and basically backported, I suppose, but "making your own board" and all that: freaking cool as HELL. Yes, obviously I want one, and I want to make my own also now.
demo on Jamma cabinet, yes please. Also: awesome indy games and such on that? What about an actual tic-80 or pico-8 jamma card? Yeah I totally want one (: )

I feel like I'm at a stage of my life where I want to look like both Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsey Lohan in "Freaky Friday".

I would like to talk to the casting director responsible for all these .

Too many god damn fonts 

Why are in word processors and always just a flat list that you need to scroll through using a hilariously small drop-down list? Every computer I've used since 1995 has had an absolutely stupid amount of fonts installed and I've never wanted to use more than like four of them.

When is someone going to make the UX of font selection a less tedious, bare-bones affair, like maybe first picking between serif and sans-serif, then narrowing down with another feature, or something like that? Can I get an OS-wide exclude list of "I will never use these fonts, never show them to me"?

If your covers your content with an intrusive popup asking me to subscribe to your newsletter, I will immediately close the tab and never visit your site again if I can help it.

Is it bad that I enjoy writing and talking about my job much more than actually doing my job?

Today I am frustrated by RPGs that allow for a wide range of styles, such as sneaking, lockpicking or talking your way out of challenges, but then the last act is pure combat. And your character sucks at it. So finishing the game becomes an exercise in hitting your head against the wall, quick-saving at every turn and hoping for the best.



sizecoding demoparty this weekend, you may find it enjoyable and fascinating. The organizers and participants hope you do.

Normally I strongly prefer my plain, without any flavourings. But this organic black tea is really enhanced with about a teaspoon of .
