Celebrating the end of tourist season here. Finally, I can go to the beach and not see other people.

I stopped caring after Carmack left. His legacy will be remembered for creating amazing games and releasing them as open source.

Just a few examples:

Following in his footsteps:

Suggestions to improve the game even further and get rid of those pesky skill requirements:

  • All players should have bright pink skins and be seen through walls.

  • Holding down the fire button should auto-aim and continuously shoot opponents.

  • The entire scoring system should be replaced with only three indicators Good, Great, and High Achiever.

  • We need more members!

    Beyond the morally objectionable behavior of cheating, I never understood how a person could stand to share germs with a stranger. I hate when people try to shake my hands -- I immediately find an excuse to rush to the bathroom in order to disinfect.

    As long as the beach remains free, the 1% can have most of it all (material possessions). If they start privatizing all of nature, then I'll be screaming.

    Yeah! What about the millions of wagon wheel makers and also the thousands no longer employed now homeless who made the 8bit computers? My father worked in the factory that made the 386 chips and he's been homeless and destitute ever since the 486 and Pentiums ruined the 386 industry.


    A false analogy is a faulty instance of the argument from analogy.

    Argument from analogy

    The process of analogical inference involves noting the shared properties of two or more things, and from this basis inferring that they also share some further property. The structure or form may be generalized like so:

    P and Q are similar in respect to properties a, b, and c.
    Object P has been observed to have further property x.
    Therefore, Q probably has property x also.

    A train takeover would mean sitting in the same seat that 1000's of others have sat. Yuck. Puke

    Hmm... What about self driving cars that don't need a human -- delivery trucks for example? I'm not looking forward to millions of jobless or homeless truck drivers.

    This looks quite interesting. I will check it out on Steam. It reminds me of Auralux: https://www.auraluxgame.com

    About 20 years ago my best friend killed himself. It's a terribly tragic feeling. All the best to the survivors.

    "When television is good, nothing not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers nothing is better.

    But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite each of you to sit down in front of your own television set when your station goes on the air and stay there, for a day, without a book, without a magazine, without a newspaper, without a profit and loss sheet or a rating book to distract you. Keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that what you will observe is a vast wasteland.

    You will see a procession of game shows, formula comedies about totally unbelievable families, blood and thunder, mayhem, violence, sadism, murder, western bad men, western good men, private eyes, gangsters, more violence, and cartoons. And endlessly commercials many screaming, cajoling, and offending. And most of all, boredom. True, you'll see a few things you will enjoy. But they will be very, very few. And if you think I exaggerate, I only ask you to try it."

    Is this worth getting over my old version? I like to play this game from time to time. One of the greatest RTS games ever made.

    When I was a child I suddenly realized the absurdity of existence. After that, life became a bit of entertainment and mostly annoyance. Whenever I close my eyes or attempt to clear my mind, the cloud of absurdity suffocates me. The best I can do is focus on distractions -- life, love, family, work, and all other the superfluous human activities.

    For some reason this discussion of the potential future makes me come back to the absurdity of it all. Does it really matter? If you want a guaranteed look at your future, have a lovely picnic at the local cemetery. Perhaps that will help you realize what's really worth worrying about. Hint: Not much.

    There are two distinct, conscious and continuous, approaches to this realization (of absurdity): be immobilized about your ultimate fate until you die, or explore the freedom of life until you die. The process is what you have control over; the end is always the same.

    The only MMO I've played for any extended period was City of Heroes. Just something about it was fun. Though it did get to be a grind and boring in a week or two.
