@naughtysecrets Oh sorry, I removed the password from the beta branch, and didn't update the main thread about it. Magic fixes everything :o (Today)

@naughtysecrets The beta branch should take care of any game breaking issues. Is there something specific that isn't working for you? (Today)

@EdgeOfProphecy @FourbitFriday UGH they're just making it worse with every update (Today)

@FourbitFriday hope you didn't update your bed right before going to sleep (Today)

@amora_b I think more games should just suddenly pause after 40 minutes or so with just a message box that says "Hey, fuck you." (Today)

@MllePilgrim @infinite_ammo Gotta be quick about it if you want to keep up with me. (Yesterday)

@MllePilgrim @infinite_ammo they were delicious (Yesterday)

Luigis new final smash is pretty weird t.co/5DNaLrZLRr (Yesterday)

@Demruth My small rural home town in the US got a roundabout a few years ago. People actually protested it, and take routes to avoid it... (Yesterday)

@infinite_ammo The rich get richer. (Yesterday)

@infinite_ammo "hey guys if we split this 500 piece sushi party platter 5 ways..." (Yesterday)

@snakepixel His recovery is insane (like almost all chars in this game) You can do your air jump, then side B and jump cancel out of it! (Yesterday)

@snakepixel Bowser Jr is who I'm trying to get good with! I love his back air and his air attack after ejecting from the flyer thing. (Yesterday)

@ADAMATOMIC @MattThorson [187] xX Crosspwned j0nEz Xx (Yesterday)

@MattThorson Billy Barnacle (but his business card says William Barnacle) (Yesterday)

@MattThorson Crossbow Jones (Yesterday)

@rabbit_nabokov Or I guess just a script that takes in a number as an argument and spits out the string for 0 - 9? (Yesterday)

@rabbit_nabokov If you want 1 to give you "One" then the best bet would be to make a ds_map with the numbers as keys and the string as value (Yesterday)

@rabbit_nabokov Key string should be a string of characters pressed by the keyboard, or are you talking about the number keys? (Yesterday)

@rabbit_nabokov can you use the most recently added character to the key string? (Yesterday)

A Month of Paleo

A Month of Paleo

I totally forgot to make any sort of blog post for the entire month of October, but I hope I can make it up by going into detail on what I was up to for the month. While I was doing my usual thing of working on video games, drawing stuff, and playing video games, I also took up a new challenge: Whole30.

This story really begins two months ago or so, when I was getting worse and worse at eating any food that was remotely good for me. I was eating a lot of cereal and whenever I wanted anything other than that it was usually a quick trip down the road for some kind of double cheeseburger and fries or out to indian food for a gross amount of rice and bread, or down to the thai restaurant for a pile of fried rice. My diet wasn't exactly the greatest, but for awhile I felt totally fine so I didn't really see any need to put any effort into changing it.

Then by a combination of working on too much shit stress and eating too much shit I began to have a lot of heart burn and overall stomach problems that were pretty distracting, and I wanted to try and do something about it. My housemates sometime do the paleo diet, as well as a lot of my friends, so I figured it was time for me to try it as well. My girlfriend Corey and I decided to make October the official challenge of Whole30.

What the hell is Whole30? Well, it's like Paleo but with some additional rules and more strict versions of already existing rules, and it's supposed to last for 30 days. Whole30 basically means eating real food, which they define as meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, and good fats. Foods with very few ingredients. Also no consumption of added sugar of any kind, processed food, alcohol, grains, legumes, dairy, and white potatoes. So my cereal and milk is totally out, as well as my double cheese burgers... no rice means no sushi either (unless I get the cucumber wrap but honestly I'm not too big of a fan of that) and no pizza... fuck.

Luckily Corey and I weren't totally alone on this. A lot of our friends in the area often eat paleo with a few exceptions here and there (In-n-Out, mostly) so we started off with a lot of resources. Our housemates usually make a lot of paleo food for dinner so started off borrowing all their recipes.

Warning: This post is going to be pretty long, so prepare yourself. If you just want to skip to the end where the most important stuff will be, that's totally cool. read more
