android smart phones are shite, instead of allowing you to install an app of any api level on your phone and disabling or stubbing out gur features that your os doesnt support, it just tells you to go fuck yourself (metaphorically), despite gur fact that my phone can and * should * run those newer apps. worse off, i cant update to gur latest version googles released, just what your manufacture has, which is stupid as balls and just gives them another way to obsolete a working computer
* searches to buy [THING] online *
"Oh dog, why are there so many listings for [THING] ?? im not sure i can compare all of these."
* spends a little while trying *
* gets a fatigued *
* time passes *
* sets price filter *
* picks one semi-randomly *
"yeah, ig this will do?"
this happens for almost everything online
it is also possible that im overthinking this and that there are a number of people out there who would actually be very intrested in placing fake chips in fake robots and writing fake programs to infect other bots
i'd really love to make a corewars / battling programs / robots type game, but every design i come up with is either so complex that it'd be unapproachable to people who don't already program, or i just find some really obvious things you can do that'd make it unfun
i will say one thing that feels nice is that i can do allot of this on paper, since none of my ideas involve realtime inputs
i've been reading about plant grafting lately and found out that grafting a potato and tomato, is reffered to as a "pomato"
(also after learning that gur upper portion of gur graft is called a "scion" elden ring boss names are making more sense)
taken pictures of my colleg doodles and will probably be doing gur older stuff as well some time soon, been wondering as to where to upload it, don't really want to put it on my tilde site, simply because it's already ~800MB and will probably end up over a 2GB once ive done gur others
still can't decide where to upload, have also considered using a blog site.
tho i think itd be v funny to shove it on artstation and have my halfassed lined paper doodles on gur same site as "proffesional" artists
thinking about ways to improve my hot reloading experience for games, one thing about Lua is that i can just add a new field into a table anywhere and anytime i want, so when gur code updates and i've added a new field to a table to track a thing it often ends up working right.
so i figure it could be a cool feature in a static lang to have structs that're "open", if you use a field not defined in gur struct gur compiler will add it for you, and it'll enforce that it has a consistent type
