This is what I am supposedly working on now. Last updated in April, 2019.
- I'm a developer at Infi, so that's were I spend most of my time actually making things.
- We were present at Exec(ut), a conference for students. We wrote a small blog post about it, and soon we'll get a bigger one detailing our Space Invaders inspired game. It was a lot of fun (and hard work) to build, on a very diverse stack.
- I recently wiped my server and wanted to started clean again; there were a lot of old projects on there with all sort of mess. I am now trying (with tiny steps) to get everything setup using Ansible, which gets kind of interesting when you want to setup Let's Encrypt certificates. I may or may not give up – it's a nice puzzle but I'm not really invested in Ansible so my interest is limited.
- While setting everything back up, I discovered that, for some reason, Gulp isn't as smooth an experience as it was before. Setting it up was a bit of a pain, plus NPM was telling me about vulnerabilities (jikes) although it wouldn't tell me which, so I'm rewriting it using Webpack.
- I'm building another book case, isn't that nice. (Yes).
- Procedural Generation in Game Design. Each chapter is another case from practise by a different game designer, which makes it a really interesting read.
- Cryptonomicon by Neil Stephenson, it's a bit long winded and has a hard time getting to the point, but enjoyanble nonetheless. I think that goes for most of Stephenson's work.
- Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection by Arthur C. Doyle (read by the excellent Stephen Fry). It's been here for a while, that's because it's really off and on. (Mosty off).
- Zer0es by Chuck Wendig. It's okay. Narrated by Ray Chase, who is very good.
- Bright Ruin by Vic James, the last part of the Dark Gifts series, read by Avita Jay. It's an interesting mix of alternative history, fantasy, politics and action in a YA package. And it has some pretty good heroines, for some reason there are a lot more of those in YA literature than in the "grown up" stuff.
- I recently caved and bought a Switch. I want to say that I'm having a lot of fun with Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart, but if I'm honest I am just spending way to much time on Stardew Valley again, for which Switch is just the best platform.
- I loved the experimental nature of What remains of Edith Finch! All those different mechanics were really cool, although I find they detracted a bit from the story for the most part. The fish factory though… I tell you, never did any game mechanic drive the story home like that one did. Respect.
- Gone Home is decidedly less pretty, but I found it much more engaging. If I could ever leave a legacy like that (haha no) I can die a peaceful person.
- I'm rewatching Altered Carbon, just because it was awesome the first time and because I recenlty read the book and some parts are rather different.
- I've just finished Scorpion, which is both terrible and hilarious (and sometimes tedious). If you're a bit of nerd, do yourself a favour and watch the first episode. It's amazing.
- Firefly. Because it's Firefly, why do you ask?
- It took me a few episodes to get into (because everyone kept saying it's awesome), but now I'm hooked on Russian Doll. Because it is awesome! A sort of extra long, extra weird and extra not family friendly Doctor Who without the Doctor. Yeah okay it's its own thing all right.
- Speaking of, when is the last season of Doctor Who coming to Netflix?! It feels like it's been years.
