!!! I did this too! It was pretty educational and fun. What is your software stack? I'm just using Apache + Nginx to host the site, and Bash + Python + Pandoc to generate the site from markdown. In retrospect, markdown doesn't save that much time over raw HTML so I think I'd just use that in the future.

Oh I have heard of all these!

Also, I just checked, my personal website would qualify for this club. I feel special indeed. (^:

I have a lot of fun with this game, it's also available as one of the free games with an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Oh yea! There's neural nets (and traditional algorithms) for continuing songs. IIRC there's a cool website that loops songs indefinitely by remixing parts of it around.

But this would be more like midi --> midi, using existing megalovania remixes as examples

Yeah, this makes sense. I actually learned just now that states often do require a report, depending on the damages or injuries: https://drivinglaws.aaa.com/tag/accident-reporting/

I guess I'll play it by ear, and depending on the wishes of the other driver (and, honestly, depending on the race and apparent gender of the other driver.) I have a front and back dashcam, which I believe should help with a no-police solution.

Oof, thank you for sharing this experience. Everything I read and people I talked to seemed to agree "call the police" but I didn't actually hear anyone with an experience where they didn't call the police.

Oh sorry, yeah, I probably should have worded it "in defense of Israel's actions."

What I mean to stress is that I really don't have the in-depth comprehension of this that I'd like to have

I still think there are a lot of decent shooters. Halo, Doom, and Overwatch (to an extent) are ones I've played recently that I think fit this.

I'm curious, if it's provided for free, then what else would you get if paying for it?

i have been informed a game like this actually exists, and it's called "spec ops: the line"

But there is this one interaction, where Cooper accidentally deadnames Denise in a conversation and she corrects him and he says sorry and moves on.

This seemed kind of sweet, and intentional? Like, it does little to advance the plot AFAICT (except, maybe, to characterize Cooper as respecting her.)

Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but Cooper's basically the coolest person on the show about Denise, and I think the audience had already been meant to see him as a role model. So something about that interaction is kind of sweet, but in a way I am way too tired to express properly.

I guess maybe I'm just feeling this way because my expectations were at the rock-bottom for the portrayal of a trans woman in a 90s show.

I can't believe I've never known this!! I just read up on it now.

Tangential, following the analogy of ALttP --> OoT, then LA --> MM. Because of the whole "Link enters a small town and things are real funky."

A person on the internet said the new Twin Peaks season has big MM vibes, and kindly avoided spoilers, so I'll get back to you later on that point...
