A couple small changes that are fairly evident below: I created an about page
and a list of lists
The list of lists was inspired by publishing J's top ten video games. Part of the process led to another synergy for having some common code between my git toolkit and Java markup parser: automated text overlay
. So Excel spreadsheet list + image set = list post
, and not just buzzfeed-y top ten stuff. There's still some work to be done for rendering text in a way that pops, for now it's just drawing on a BufferedImage/Graphics2D canvas.
brought Lil'B over for birthday photos and my first real use of the 50mm f/1.4. The one thing that really struck me was being able to shoot into the sun
owing to some combination of the polarizer and lens hood. This was my first $60 polarizer (B+W, been using Tiffens for the most part), so maybe that explains the lack if insane lens flare and the almost-monochrome background in some of the shots.
After a brief stint as Marcus Kinkaide the Quartermaster, I started a career as MC Lutes, the Troubadour.
Our informal party log is taking up quite a bit of Mark
Risk of Rain 2
The lolbaters crew have jumped on the early access to Risk of Rain 2
. It's remarkably similar to the original, but in 3d so not similar at all.
J and I have completed Vermintide up through veteran
difficulty. Champion seems hard.
I've gotten a few Warframe sessions in, it's really good for when you have just a few minutes for gaming. I finally built Mirage Prime and Hydroid Prime
. Also I pulled my first Legendary Core sortie reward.
Before moving to RoR2 we had an intense night of trying to complete Hoxton with stealth
It took coordinated movement to get access to the house and not alert the guards who patrol fairly randomly.
Having someone on the roof watching the cams
was crucial to making sure no one was blindsided by a guard.
After 40ish tries
we got to the saferoom, only to have swat called by ???. We weren't set up for serious combat, but somehow made it out with the evidence.
Look for the IPO of my new messaging client. I know it's a crowded space, but I think we have a unqiue offering with Slackr.
Speaking of chat services. Wow, LinkedIn/Gina. A half dozen words and two dozen hashtags.
