Other than that I now know I can turn around a disaster. That was good to learn.

I hate Golang less than most of the people around me hate it, but that doesn’t mean I _like_ it.

My Witcher 3 game has moved on to Skellige & I’m happier than I was with the game in Novigrad. I could also have done without segment with the houseful of dead women.

Outdoors it’s exceptionally pretty, though.

Now I have an armful of Oswin. It’s a good fate.

I want to watch a Witcher 2 playthrough that doesn’t have the music cranked up to 11.

This is literally illegal. Look at how it went for Lanetix when they shut down an office after a unionization vote...…
