Hey, way to go! I just started running levels in DUSK last week and I've submitted a few times on levels myself, but competition is limited 'cuz people usually run the easiest difficulty level and not the 'hard' one. There's a bit of a kerfuffle about that on the speedrun discord for the game, but that won't stop me from going fast in those categories.

Two and a half hours though, yeesh. Stuff I'm playing takes like thirty seconds, if that. All too easy to dump an evening into improving that time, though...
There's categories for individual levels, which are all below 10 minutes each unless you get terrible luck. But turns out I enjoy torturing myself.

I did a science today. Humanity now knows a little more about how physical fitness affects social stress.

I did a speedrun of sorts the other day, in an hour I went from pencil doodles on a piece of wood to a thing that I need to give to my mommy so she'll be all "look how awesome my son is, he's totally the best one of my kids especially the ones who have given me a total of zero awesomely cute little saws" and stuff.


That, incidentally, is my first nib, the little carved ridge between the two upper horns is a feature in various saws, just as a way to break up the transition more artistically.

You can see that I was heavily inspired by one of the master saw wrights from back in the day, nowadays most hand tool fanatics would at least have seen if not recognize a Kenyon handle, and it is indeed a pretty little thing, but I don't like the idea of a direct copy so I tried to make something which wouldn't look out of place in the same crowd. Similarly I liked certain features on the Moses Eadon handles more than the Kenyon ones so I ended up with a sort of hybrid homage to both of them, which we can now enjoy and if so motivated replicate more easily thanks to Two Guys In A Garage and their Saw Handle Library of conveniently scaled designs ready to print out and glue to a handle blank!

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

I was reminded today of an old saying by, iirc, Janet or someone on this forum. Something along the line of "sometimes you just have to face the world head held high and penis erect". Or possibly something like "Sometimes you have to run straight into the wall head held high and penis erect".

Anyway, it made me laugh. Does anyone remember it or what it actually went like?

I am here to interrupt your alcohol puns before y'all get drunk on power.



I guess I am a speedrunner now? Still waiting for verification on the leaderboards (and if accepted it will make it a world record thanks to there being no other runs of the sort), but I am pretty damn proud of my almost two-and-a-half-hours of suffering.

Will anyone actually see the video? Probably not, but ol' ego still appreciates it being out there.
As a follow-up to this, the run was verified and approved, so that means I have a world record now. Yay.

It was gunner-chan/janet, yes. The exact quote is "Sometimes all you can do is face danger with your eyes open, and dick erect." Search can pull it up but whatever's going on with quotes not quite aiming right makes it hard to get to the exact post. Seems to be somewhere in the WTF thread.

Fake E: Actually, this should be it.
Sometimes all you can do is face danger with your eyes open, and dick erect.
turns out the timestamp is accurate even if everything else is borked up

Actual E: Nah, link's fucked. Post is several hundred posts prior to where that leads.

Thanks, that was it!

It's not as exact at post links, but the page link still works, I think.

Writing a literature review citing a bunch of work from the 60s has made me deeply grateful for arXiv. Instead of more-or-less blindly citing that something was said in a book because someone else says it was (and I can't check it, because the book isn't in my university's library and may or may not be in print), I can just... look it up. Sometimes citations even have links in the PDFs. It's incredible.
