I mean you wanted feedback and people are giving it to you, complaining about it isn't going to encourage people. Things I noticed:

 

Even when you pointed out the book was supposed to be an I I still had a hard time seeing it.

 

Also combination of the slideshow and arrow buttons for the pictures felt a little weird to me. I wasn't sure that the arrows did anything the first couple times I used them because the pictures were scrolling at the same rate. Maybe just pick one or the other?

 

Also the arrow buttons aren't aligned in Chrome which was a little jarring - I see you have a margin on one but not the other, maybe it'd look better with a bottom margin on the left arrow?

 

I think the font / character images are nice but the layout kinda reminds me of a 90s geocity site lol. It's fine but doesn't look super modern, probably because you don't use the full width of the page like most more modern pages do. Look at some examples for some more modern games like the sites for Stardew Valley and Wargroove - see how these sites use the full width and break up into sections? I think that would help your site look more professional. You could maybe have your background on top, transition into the ItsyRealm logo over it, go into a slideshow, then give your blurb and github link at the bottom.

 

edit: posted this before the second logo but I still have a hard time reading the I tbh

They say they will send a set-up kit for $15 in the mail and I can set it up myself. Not sure if it's a good idea to rent theirs as a backup/if I can just send it back after a week and not pay much, or if they will throw a lot of other charges in there. Otherwise if the one I buy doesn't work somehow, it's wait another week for internet access...

 

Don't rent a modem. The monthly rental fee after a year is about as much money if not a bit more as a super solid modem and router would end up, except then after that you have to keep paying for it. Just a waste of money.

 

Just had to deal with this, got this router and this modem and I've been pretty happy with them, get my full 150mbps even 2 stories up from where the modem is and can balance as many devices as my roommate and I use without a problem. You could probably get by with cheaper stuff too, I just wanted to future proof a bit cause I figured I'd be paying about that much for a year of rental anyways and didn't want to deal with deadzones with how many stories my current apartment is.

Yeah I'm committed, but everyone in Seattle was just so hip and young

 

YOOO you're here dude?? Let me know if you want to meet up for a drink or something at some point!!

 

Haven't been posting here as much but I'm finally moved into my new place!!! The place is [bleep]ing dope with a massive balcony (like twice the size of my old bedroom). I'm mostly unpacked at this point and everything is feeling a lot more calmed down now. Only thing left to do is figure out seating cause my roommate and I have no living room or kitchen furniture so there is nowhere to sit and chill yet which is a bummer. Making an Ikea trip tomorrow and grabbing a couch from a friend this week so hopefully between all this we should be able to finish getting this place mostly homey soon! but yeah I'm really liking the new neighborhood so far and I'm super excited to finish getting this stuff sorted out

Just got my application accepted for a new apartment!!! I'm moving to a new area of town with a new roommate and while the last couple weeks looking for stuff sucked we ended up finding a super dope spot. The apartment we found is a 3 story townhouse where we each have our own bedroom and bathroom, and its 1400 sq ft so we have a hugeeee living area too and a massive patio that isn't even accounted for in that. and the place is like $600/month cheaper than my current apartment so my rent is going down too. And it's only less than a ten minute walk away from the downtown part of the neighborhood. I'm putting a deposit down tomorrow and its soooooo nice to just have this sorted out finally.

 

Now to deal with the logistics of actually moving in 2 weeks... then getting a car... then a new job... shit  feels like its never going to slow down lol but I'm definitely ready for some changes

#5601735 What book are you currently reading?

Posted by Kalphite on 21 June 2018 - 05:20 AM

wind up bird chronicle is an incredible book, hard seconded

 

@ring I'd definitely recommend Designing Data-Intensive Applications from O'Reilly. It explains a lot about different ideas between modern database technologies, how they developed over time, and what problems they are meant to solve. Gives a super nuanced view about how to choose the right technology for a given system function and how to make sense of the messes of available options, and is super useful in architecture discussions. It's helped me a lot with being able to contribute to these kinds of system design discussions at work. Even just making it a few chapters in has a ton of gold.

I'm also a member of the failed-two-driving-tests-before-I-got-my-license club

 

Just got back from a vacation to Arizona that was super dope! My Grandma spends the colder months out there and my parents were visiting her so I met up with them there for the weekend. We went and saw the Grand Canyon which was absolutely gorgeous. I'd love to go back there again someday and do one of the hikes to the bottom of the canyon.

 

Also met up with one of my old college roommates who lives in the area now. Holy shit I had no idea that the nightlife was so insane out there; going out is so much better when you live somewhere where people actually go outside and it was absolutely ridiculous how many gorgeous women there were there (being right near Arizona State helped a LOT). My friend had some other friends who work as promoters at one of the bigger clubs in the area and we took a party bus there and got free admission / "bottle service" (shitty vodka and kool-aid lmao but w/e it was free). Still not super big on clubbing but it was still fun to see that kind of thing; Seattle's nightlife isn't really the greatest unless you're not straight and I'd never really been out in a place with that good of nightlife. Definitely could not do that environment all the time though lol.

 

But yeah, just was a super nice feel-good time and it was cool getting to see my family since I don't really get to spend much time with them since I moved. Coming back to 40 degree weather after a weekend of 80 degree weather and sunshine is [bleep]ing HARD though ughhhh

yeah @ ring you definitely should be able to putting on weight faster than that for at least a month if you eat enough, when I started out I added 10 pounds to my squat every workout  from starting with the bar until I hit  about 185, then 5 pounds after that and my deadlifts progressed at a similar rate, and I'm only like 5'4 lol so your body will probably be able to keep that up for longer. but yeah that routine worked until about a 220 squat and 245 deadlift, rock those noob gainz. my bench was always disproportionately awful though, peaked at about 150. Haven't been to the gym in months though, I have a lot more fun running and that way I don't have to pay $55/month for a gym membership lol

It can be kinda weird from the other side cause you never know how people will react though. Like in Seattle a bunch of people HATE Amazon / how it's changed the city over the last few years and are dicks if you say you work there, and there can be judgement towards all the Microsoft employees here too. Also some people can act really weird when you bring up stuff about your job sometimes. Makes it a lot easier to just kinda shy away from the topic. But then when you talk to people from back home you forget that people from outside where you work are legitimately interested in hearing about it and its easy to just stick to not bringing it up unless it really comes up.

 

I just got back from a trip to San Francisco for the weekend!! It was super fun. Nice and sunny and clear and 65 degree weather felt SO great in February. Did a bit of tourist stuff with my friends who hadn't been there, rented bikes and went to wineries in sonoma (reinforcing my opinion that there is no need to spend > $20 on a bottle of wine lol, idk there is just not a big enough of a difference after that point to seem worth it ), and did a hike through the Purisima Creek Redwood Reserve. Also ate SO MANY BURRITOS holy shit I've been deprived

 

Sucks though cause my phone battery took a massive dump  right when I got there. I can't open uber, snapchat, or the facebook app without my phone going into a restarting loop that can only be broken by popping the battery out lmfao. made it suuuper hard to get in touch with people once I was there. I basically have to keep my phone attached to a portable charger at all times which is pretty obnoxious. I need a new phone so badly lol but I dont wanna give up a headphone jack and it feels like all the other options have other weird stuff wrong with them so I've been procrastinating like crazy
