Megaman Battle Network, the slay the spire style roguelite, basically.
I'm sold.
Having watched a few more vids, it's more like battle network meets Touhou meets, like, mainlining speed straight into your veins. It's faster than even the hardest parts of MMBN I can remember seeing, basically someone looked at battle network and went, "But what if more bullet hell?" With slay the spire map stuff, plus other things. I'm kinda' tempted, but I'd be hitting it with cheat engine to slow the bloody thing down 'cause goddamn. Some of the boss fights or later hallway fight equivalents are literally more than I can keep track of watching.

There's times where there's like one safe square (or flat bloody none) on the 4x4 player side, and not due to like one aoe attack or anything. Gets pretty crazy.

Has a category of sword/dash/etc. cards. Called slashfik. Damnit game >_<

I'm not stopping you. Keep going.


There are already automated systems galore, you would just need a single rather simple script to sort tables and remove entries with identical phone numbers, or move the entries to some separate table for posterity.

And like I said, it's not just wasted time for the ground troopers, it's also inaccurate data if you record the same data point multiple times. I'm certain it's important to politicians and marketers who contract these call centers that something like that doesn't happen.

I think it's equal parts not caring about wasted time on the part of callers relative to database people, and "someone will catch it if there are problems, that's what we pay them for." Management isn't (usually) bright.

I thought of another reason. Many call centers work for a client company, and they have a fee-for-service arrangement. So whatever is in that contract is what they want to maximize for profits. The client gives you a big list of numbers, that they couldn't be arsed to filter, and says "call this list, you're paid per item on the list that you call". The contract specifies that the call center operators are paid per the number of files they call, not the number of different phone numbers they call.

So the client decided it wasn't worth it on their end to filter their damn data, they've decided it's easier and cheaper to dump the whole list on a third-party company. Yes, you could tell the client "we found duplicate numbers so we only called one file for each of the duplicates", but then the client will just say "oh you don't need as much money then since you did less work".

It's like being paid to move piles of sand back and forth. Yes, you could work out that it's easier and cheaper to just leave the sand where it is, but no, if you do that, nobody gets paid.

I ate an interesting wild greens soup a few days ago.

Not much in the yard right now except white clover and hen-bit, but you can make a surprisingly edible creamy soup out of those with milk, a little garlic and some black pepper.


I re-upped my hunt+fish license online (because screw seeing a proctor in person), and am considering doing what we did as kids-- Go and catch all the trash fish with no catch limit, and put away fillets in the deep freeze.


My sister is actively culturing blue oyster mushrooms on cardboard in her closet--


I guess having doomsday prep dad was a good thing afterall?

My dad used to keep MREs for an emergency but it was one of the things that we forgot to keep up with after he passed.  Turn out MREs don't last forever, especially when moved from a climate controlled closet into an un air conditioned garage in Florida. Who knew?  We tossed them last year and never bothered to replace them.

So here's a tip for you doomsday preppers out there, make sure your families know how to read date codes and know how to take care of your week's supply of MRE in case yer not around when the apocalypse virus hits.

The year's barely started. Covid-19 may well mutate into Zomvid-20.

I was messing around in GIMP, and I think I ended up exporting a .tiff file that can't be opened, moved, deleted or overwritten. I can't even use something like FileASSASSIN to delete it, since it just freezes once it tries to delete it. I'm tempted to boot into Ubuntu to delete it.

Edit: Uh.. it failed so hard to boot into Ubuntu from USB that it not only produced errors, it also spat out a bunch of graphical garbage.

Edit 2: This clearly isn't working. I need to try something else.

Edit 3: I have run into a wall. Whatever is going on here is beyond my abilities.

Run scandisk. Failing that, move everything else off then format the drive.
