    My girlfriend just unwittingly gave me permission to build a death ray

    *Edit* Whoops, never mind. She said to stick to a project with easily obtainable parts, but the preview of the text cut off the part where she also says to avoid attention from the government

    I saw "her" today. Not the movie, an actual person. At the same time it bummed me out, though. Regardless, it's always nice.

    Oh, and FFV Advance came in the mail today. Hopefully I won't have issues with it.

    Doing swimming pool renovations (new liner, new concrete around it, convert to salt-water system), and just found someone who can do it all for $9,000 less than what a few companies gave me estimations at. Going through a friend who does that kind of work with his family, so was very relieved to hear this good news today.

    Man, can't believe this thread fell off page one.

    When the files for the Switch were first dumped a couple months ago, there were a couple oddities found. An NES emulator tied to a file named "flog".

    Fast forward to the past week, and a hacker found that the file was actually the NES game "Golf" ("flog" is "golf" backwards). No idea why it was included on the system, or how it was unlocked. But the game did seem to have some connection to JoyCons and motion controls. An NES game retrofitted to have motion controls? A proof of concept, perhaps?

    Now it turns out that apparently the game is unlocked on July 11th of any year. By taking two JoyCons and performing Iwata's signature "Directly to you" motion. You know it worked when you hear his voice say "success".



    July 11th, 2015 was when game development legend Satoru Iwata passed away. The NES game Golf was one that he had programmed himself. Like an Omamori, the charms left at Japanese shrines for guidance and protection, this game was included as a memento for Iwata. To have his code looking over every Switch and guiding it.

    If a Switch has ever been synced to the internet, it will remember the actual date, even if you change its display date. So it will be nearly a year before those of us with the system can test this ourselves. And, as that date has already passed us by since the Switch was launched, this is a tribute that Nintendo may never have revealed. Just a quiet, humble tribute to a man who meant so much to gaming.

    The feels, man...
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    Coming home from work to have the sun still out so I could sit outside and enjoy it always makes for a happy day. Today was such a day. It doesn't have its full warmth anymore, but I'll take all that I can get. Winter is coming.

    Girl, use half the amount you normally use and top up with white vinegar. Seriously, I'm a convert to this.

    Today is the last day of my detox week and I can finally eat bread from tomorrow. I've never looked forward to morning tea & toast so much in my life.

    Also, me and MissH have date night tomorrow. Italian meal followed by the new Kingsman film at the cinema

    This is something that "gave me hope" more than it made me happy (even though I was happy to see it).

    I am a fan of the YouTube Rewind videos, but I hate how people complain if they don't know enough people - I get that they want to see their favorite YouTubers, but I don't get why they have to focus on the people they don't know, and use it as a complaint. I always reply to these people that they should check out the people they don't know, as they might find a new favorite YouTuber (most of the YouTubers I know, I was introduced to via YouTube Rewind), but I don't know if it ever sinks in, because people keep moaning about them showing YouTubers that "nobody" knows (meaning, YouTubers that they don't know), but tonight I got a response from someone saying that they were going to check out the people that they didn't know. This gives me hope, because I hate the "don't know them, won't bother to know them" mentality, so it was nice to see someone willing to actually broaden their list of YouTubers.
    The one true comparison to love and hate is; when you allow either to overcome you, it can make it so that you can’t think of anything other than that one person...

    The guy from the magazine I was writing and translating for finally paid me! AFTER NINE SMURFING MONTHS!!!

    FINALLY!!!!

    It really SUCKS that it's so late, but then again, it was quite a lot of money and having it show up on my account right now instead of back then is actually helpful at this point!
