Weeklog for Week 5: January 30 to February 05


Thought I'd finished a topic, but it came back and I worked all week on it.

The house is nearing completion, now dates are being talked about. The communication with the builders is still about the worst thing you could imagine.

I started following "Computer, Enhance!" by Casey Muratori. Let's see whether I can keep up.


Libraries, programming, etc


  • Rogue Moon by Algis Budrys


  • Sea of Thieves: with the crew. Very enjoyable, super-polished, nice progression. Will do that again! 8/10 Ah, on the second run (crew of two, this time around), we found the PvP element of the game, which was not as enjoyable. But on the other hand, we're not going to grind this game, so the others will have much more to lose than we do.
  • Outer Wilds: I know what to do, but I can't get past those damned fish. Very frustrating.
  • Minecraft
  • Hot Wheels Unleashed


  • City Of Gangsters (free from EGS)


  • Sopetti


  • Lightyear: I'd wanted to watch this for a while because I like Toy Story and Pixar and generally silly movies. It was... ok, I guess. Not great, a little all-over-the-place, and I wondered when the movie would start until it was almost done. The rendering is absolutely fantastic, the action is greatAnd the little gay couple thing is perfect, simply because it's not remarked upon at all. Apparently, groups were disappointed because they wanted more prominence out of it, but that'd be silly. She says "I'm engaged" and he says "what's her name", as if that's perfectly normal because it is., but the movie is just... ok. The characters don't really shine and their arcs are, well, ok. 6.5/10
