Oh, jeepers, what are all these buttons?

I'm writing this from the brand new 64Digits DARK submission UI, and there's a cornucopia of formatting buttons gently resting atop the textarea. They look at me as if to say, "twisterghost! You don't need that barbaric BB-code anymore! Come with us, into the future of formatting! We all format down here!"

For shame.

Also, does BBCode work yet? Also also, I used the rich text editing buttons to make "dark" italic so I'm just a hypocrite.

Also also also, my double-enter-between-paragraphs reflex may not work well with this new system. We'll see when I hit "Submit". (edit: oh hey, looks fine.)

Anyway, since last we met, I've been making some progress on house stuff. The majority of my time is spent being super happy that I got this house at all, and the rest is spent working with contractors to fix some shit. Everyone I've talked to around here has similar war stories though, I think it just comes with the domain of all these houses being older and retrofitted / remodeled. Still, I'm finding myself getting all giddy whenever I think about the fact that I LIVE here as an OWNER. It still doesn't feel real. I guess it will feel more real when I get my first mortgage payment.

Besides admiring the flooring and grilling out of spite for the previous places I've lived only having like 2 working grills that were constantly occupied, I've been playing and working on vidya games. Currently playing Dauntless, which you should play with me. You form a team of four people and go hunting what are essential all raid bosses. Pretty hype. Between that and work, still building Evenfall, which is coming along nicely. Dialing in the spells and gameplay, and feeling good about the direction its going in. Still a long way to go, especially as a side project, but I always have fun when I open it up to hack on. That said, it does make me want to work on something smaller, just to see a project to completion in a shorter time span. Maybe I'll actually participate in a jam or something.

Keep on keepin' on, everyone.
