After more than a year out of work and over 400 job apps I finally landed a Technical Supervisor position at a big game studio. I've been riding high all day, the day went by so quickly.

So this is what it feels like to be happy, huh? Not bad.

My whole life is about to change for the better.

That's fantastic - congratulations!

I hope it goes really well :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Just 3 am realization that I've dedicated the entirety of my teen-adult life to this hobby. Maybe some regrets financially but at the end of the day it makes me happy, I think. Thanks everyone.

Even if the passion eventually fades it will be something you remember forever. Life is all about minimizing regrets, so if the positives outweigh them you've succeeded as a human being.

I was shocked and super happy to see the Nintendo Direct today where Master Hero Soccer Guy talked about the history of the Neo Geo. I REALLY hope this means future partnerships between Nintendo and SNK (I'm a bit of a Neo Geo fan myself). Totally caught me off-guard  ;D

Did that like 4 years ago, it promptly got cock blocked by the GH gestapo. I would not write "(they kept spamming: easy game, ez pizi, get rekt, etc.)" What game is this? Never have I seen such civilized spamming.

$100 in cash?
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

The guy who lives across the street has just made me happy - he's got a new car.  Bye-bye noisy Impreza STI with boy racer exhaust, hello sensible Audi which makes 1/4 of the noise while he sits there revving it for ages for no apparent reason :D

Sadly no front lawn, otherwise he would be further away and less annoying.  Looking forward to laughing at him soon too - he couldn't get a four wheel drive rally car to go forward in a bit of snow (too many revs, wheels spin as he slides backwards :))) so he has no hope with this car.

Nope, it is still a special tax on people with poor math skills. That said, I play from time to time myself.

A kid at work won $5K last summer and bought a car (which he promptly wrecked). I went in and got something like 3 winners on the next 5 cards I bought, but since then it has been near-solid losses.

If you believe in a lottery God, then maybe he is like a drug dealer sucking you in to get you hooked.
"At Fox News, on talk radio, and on the web, American conservatives have built a communications system that effectively consolidates in-group identity. Much of the time, the talkers and listeners do not themselves understand what they are saying. They use key words and phrases as gang signs: badges of identity that are recognized without necessarily being understood.

Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, and the others have fenced off conservative Americans from the rest of American society. Within that safe space, insiders hear only what is familiar and comforting. When those protected insiders step outside into the larger world, they find themselves completely unprepared for it."
