Aside: Some games
- Finished Volume, and really enjoyed it. Made sure to get 100% of the achievements, which was mercifully open to even someone of my limited skill.
- Purchased and played through The Beginner’s Guide. As expected, I really enjoyed it. Definitely akin to The Stanley Parable, but different enough in premise and execution to be something new.
- Finally started playing The Talos Principle and am enjoying it so far.
Aside: The near future
I’m definitely doing the upcoming AI course from nucl.ai, and will work it into this blog.
Aside: The slightly further future
After a coworker pointed it out, I was glad to see Riot Games using Erlang. It’s my intention to rewrite the IoK server emulator entirely in a different technology stack, and Erlang is very likely to be a part of that.
Aside: Cleaning up my filesystem
Having a lot of CDs from various parts of the world, my hard drives are full of music files with interesting sets of characters in their file names. This has caused a few problems with some cloud backup utils, some music utils, even Windows and/or Mac OS X freaking out about the files. After the dozenth annoying crash, I looked around for a quick-and-easy way to sanitize the file names. Not finding exactly what I wanted, I took some of the Ruby code I’d found and morphed it into this monstrosity:
7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52
