Thinking about my character for the Fabula Ultima game we're playing tonight. I think I'm going to drop my Spiritist level and maybe pick up Sharpshooter instead. Hmm...

Just received the Hobonichi Techo 2024 cousin notebook in the mail! It was packaged beautifully and has some unexpected heft.

Now all that's left is to stick it on my shelf and never use it the rest of the year.

Browsing HTML DOM — Phuoc Nguyen. Really cool collection of DOM manipulations with basic JavaScript, no libraries required.

Have you read Second-guessing the modern web?

I'm feeling a lot of this right now -- why are we doing all this again? Developer experience is important, yes, but it's subordinate to user experience. Shipping a bunch of JS to the client as a prerequisite for the app to work as the default case seems like a poor decision.

Watching The ultimate introduction to Godot 4 - YouTube. It is seriously good, 11 hours long, and starts as though you're a complete beginner to programming and gamedev without being too pandering.

If you're trying to get familiar with Godot because of the Unity fiasco and you like learning from videos, this seems like a great place to start!
