"I think you must be dragonborn," says one of the Whiterun guards to me. The dragon died on a dark and rainy night, so I have no good screenshots of it.

This was my first view of Whiterun. Whiterun is hardest on my framerate, but it is tolerable with this load order. I did a lot of merging.

This is JK's Skyrim + Perfecter Whiterun to add in the trees.

Two shots of the approach to the iconic dragon claw door in Bleak Falls Barrow, one of the earliest dungeon crawls in a game full of excellent dungeon crawls. I screenshot this spot for every load order because it shows off my ruins texture choices.

I installed a mod that auto-snaps screenshots when a killmove is triggered, so I have a lot of screenshots like these.

A batch of screenshots follows; they will all be hashtagged if this is the kind of twitter content you dislike.

You monster.

This was one of the more interesting revelations from our recent work shipping a Rust http service to production. Node is… no longer a clear win anywhere for me. Maybe rendering web pages.

(speed is at a distant fourth because, well, as I've seen recently, I don't have to pay much (any?) ergonomic cost to blow node out of the water with a rust http server w/r/t latency AND transactions per second.)

Aww, here's one screenshot. I'm now headed toward Whiterun for the first time, dragonstone in hand.

Be grateful that I am restraining myself and not posting a zillion screenshots of this Skyrim playthrough. My load order this time is *particularly* good-looking in a lore-friendly way.

This isn't just affecting Trans kids. So many of us have warned that this would happen.

Me: What does the word "jaunt" make you think of?

Right now all I’m thinking about is how Bethesda is going to get even more money from me for the 10th anniversary, coming up at the f egg c of this year.

I remember seeing this sequence for the first time, as a Morrowind and Oblivion fan who’d been looking forward to the next Elder Scrolls game for a while.

Okay. It's time for "hey you-- you're finally awake" with this load order.
