Just had a realization re: #gamedev. Especially as I get older w/a wonderful family, I have less time for games. Getting on and playing at same time with friends is near impossible.
BUT! (and MMOs have this) the ability to multiplay async is possible. Crafting and sending items to help your friends, etc. (Note: I am not talking about turns sitting in a notification somewhere.)
Designing a game with lots of ways players can async play together is a critical element.
I'm sure everyone knows about them already, but I didn't! So I'm sharing. https://www.stickermule.com/ Pretty inexpensive custom stickers!!

@cwebber Hello sir! Asking you because I'm pretty sure you'd know the answer.. So, I love XMPP. Is there a web service I can host like Rocket.chat or mattermost that does all the slacky things, but its underlying mechanisms are XMPP?
I'd just love all that functionality when at the pc (and history!) but just run a simple XMPP client when on my mobile device.
thanks for everyone who contributed to this moment of mirroring a 4MB flash volume over a 9600b serial cable to interlink running on dosbox
Cool, apparently my laptop can catch on fire. https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht504453 I'll try to take care of that. #lenovo #thinkpad #x1carbon #firefirefire
So, I made a thing ~a year ago that is kinda neat and wanted to share:
"JS-Space a tool/game that will generate a mostly-realistic galaxy from a seed, then let you navigate around it to view the various stars within the galaxy. It’s designed to work well on computers and mobile devices."
@brion Welcome! Come and revel in the larger max character space. Oh, yes and the nice people here. :D

I've been starting to do the #Wii Fit Plus almost day.2 yogas, 1 strength and 1 cardio (normally a run). I love it.
Also, living in PNW, seeing that sunny blue sky on the island run really helps with my mood. Yay virtual environments!
