Cake day: July 3rd, 2023


  • I pirated it. It worked, I didn’t run into any bugs like 1.0, and I had fun, on my steam deck no less. I didn’t finish and I might go back to it at some point, but that doesn’t say as much for the game as it does my attention span. I rarely finish games. I’d go as far as to recommend it now based on what I played.

    I maintain that I’m glad they were able to fix it and market the improvements earnestly. They made good on their initially bad project, and that should be applauded.

  • Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. It’s harder to drift if you can fully saturate your thoughts with the book. The moments where your brain already understands where a sentence is going, that’s when it gets bored and starts thinking of something else while your reading speed catches up. This made a huge difference for me and counterintuitively it significantly improved my reading comprehension and reduced those moments of getting to the bottom of the page, not knowing what you just read. It’s like a disconnect between reading the words and processing them. It also just makes it less tedious to reread a section, since you’re blasting through it so much faster. Seriously, give it a shot.

    There’s speed reading apps that will flash the words at a faster pace so you have to keep up. Just bump up the speed til it’s a little uncomfortable.

    Pixel phones are garbage compared to Nexus line at the time. Android is garbage now too, like the OP said. Chromebook is gonna have to turn itself into a real platform with powerful machines and software to ever be relevant beyond disposal classroom computers. Frankly I think SteamOS has a better chance at making a comeback, and that’s a long shot.
