Life

Uh-Oh

I just checked the fridge, and there's only one bottle of Pepsi left.  I might have to go outside.

Which might not seem to be much of an issue, except that where I live is smack in the middle of the biggest storm to hit the Sydney region in a decade.

Not the most violent, but in terms of covering a large area, dumping huge amounts of water over everything in sight, blowing down trees, and generally continuing to cause havoc for two full days so far, definitely the biggest.

I can't actually remember the Parramatta River (the main river flowing into Sydney Harbour) flooding before.  I'm worried about the Nepean River, which is where we usually get major flooding in weather like this.  (Miles and miles from where I live, but the one place we do get significant flooding in Sydney.)

In Space

Perhaps the most subtly dramatic space photo I've ever seen.

Cities: Raillines

Actually Cities: Skylines with a couple of mods from the Steam Workshop.  The interesting thing is that Cities: Skylines was never designed to do this at all; rather, it was designed so that inventive users could customise it.

And they did.

Sorry About The Site Glitches

Our statistics database filled up. This wasn't immediately obvious from the logs, and since it was due to a size limit being set too low rather than running out of server resources, it wasn't obvious from the state of the server.


It's been addressed now, the server processes have been restarted to clean up any hung connections, and all should be well with the world.

Rant

Dear IGN

Please find the twat that reviewed Pillars of Eternity for you and throw him off a cliff.

Thanks.

Dear everyone not IGN: Never read IGN.  They employ twats.

Azunyan Update

So, Cities Skylines at 4K and max settings on a low-end notebook GPU is not a good experience.  Turn down the settings and set the resolution to 1920x1080, though, and it's not too bad.  Not silky smooth, but playable.

The new version of IntelliJ IDEA, my IDE of choice, just came out, and features HiDPI support.  Tried it on my CrazyHiDPI notebook...  It Just Works.™

It's a lot heavier than Chika, but then Chika weighs all of 2lbs, so a 15" notebook with touchscreen and dedicated GPU would be expected to weigh a little more.

Screen is glossy, which is great for colour but not great for working in a brightly lit environment. 

So far, it works, it's fast, it has 4x the RAM and 2.5x the free disk space of Chika, and I'm very happy.
