    Corona Virus

    Vaccination is a super complex topic, so I'm afraid of commenting on it and saying something stupid. I understand some of the anti-vaccination arguments/thoughts people can have, because like ThunderKeil described, choosing to administer a vaccine to your kid, for instance, feels like the responsibility is on you if there's a side effect. Those thoughts are related to the fact that when you have to make that kind of decision, the perspective is that of yourself, your family etc. not that of society as whole. You have to play good-cop-bad-cop in your mind about there being a super low chan
  2. Been in a mood lately for songs that feel like soundtracks without a movie attached (unless you count the music video)
  3. I beat Guacamelee 2 with my gf using steam link on a LAN (not using wifi) and latency wasn't noticeable, but I don't know if it's worse with heavier games
  4. Hehe don't think I'll make another thread but here's a few pics of what I'm up to with my uncle and brother, on my mom's house. I was crunching for a couple of weeks to get a pitch video done and jumped into the renovations right after so I'm exhausted, but spending time with family is nice and my uncle is only around for a couple of weeks so we're giving it a big push to get all piping/waste/electrical setups done before he leaves while we have his pro tools, truck and expertise -- he used to work as an electrician and has been renovating houses all his life so it's invaluable having him arou
  5. I've been working too hard for a few years now, went through some deep burnouts and such, but taking control back a bit. Putting boundaries on work, and investing in a healthier lifestyle -- I realize I don't like living in a city because I don't know what to do when I take a break from work (that is, things that don't involve spending money) and have been picking biking and exercising a bit. The appartement above mine was also not used for the last 3 years but now peeps are moving in and I have to get used to the reality of living in an appartement building (especially since I work late at ni

    Corona Virus

    I've got a few contacts in hospitals in Paris from back when I lived there with my ex-wife and she was a nurse in the biggest hospital there. They're being hit pretty hard, some of them are posting about being scared all the time and hating how they're portrayed as heroes because it means they can't say how scared and panicked they are, about being given instructions by the government to not reanimate people over a certain age and help them pass away with drugs, etc. One of them (a male nurse) got the virus early on, and went to ER but he wasn't considered a priority because he's still in his
  7. Well I'm not sure how much I can share, but R.R. Martin is from Santa Fe and invested a few millions into a local art collective called Meow Wolf a few years ago. With that money, they made a park that I can only describe as "psychedelic Disneyland for adults where you can touch anything and go anywhere", and had a lot of success with it, so they're repeating the process in Vegas and Denver (bigger parks, more craziness). I've been working with them for a few months and that internal "vertical slice" (that I can't share details about) is now being presented to a bunch of stakeholders and inves
  8. My girlfriend is currently presenting the demo we created to R.R. Martin, not sure what to think about that. I can't help but be excited, even though it doesn't really mean anything. Fame is weird.
  9. Windows were actually surprisingly decent so I didn't change anything there. I do have a cold spot in my kitchen: since I use natural gas to cook, to follow the french safety norms I am supposed to have a ventilation both at ceiling level and at ground level so the gas can escape if there's a leak. Because I am a law abiding citizen, I pierced an air vent on the ground level through the door to the loggia and through the wall of the loggia to the outside. But now you can feel the cold air going through quite a bit when it's windy outside (it's the wrong side of the building that gets most
  10. Living room pretty much done! Plants are chilling here but a bunch will go into other rooms soon. Around half the furniture in the apartment I got second-hand for cheap, turned out pretty good still I think
  11. It took me way longer than planned because I spent almost half of the last year in the US and was working a lot whenever I was around my hometown, but I'm almost there! Moving in on the 21st after a plumber comes to clean up and revise the central heater. The kitchen is still covered in plastic because it needs a last coat of paint, and I have a bunch of small things to finish like adding shelves in some of the closets, and I'm still expecting some furniture and such for living room, but it should take about a week, maybe 2 to be completely done. Some shots! Main bedroom 1:
  12. Toilet done! Doesn't necessarily look like it needed an overhaul from the pictures but the toilet itself was really bad, the walls were all damaged, the dry-wall on the right was moldy at the base because it touched the floor, etc. Was hoping to actually break it and leave it open to gain a few centimeters on the width of the room but there were too many pipes in all directions behind it, would have looked stupid so I rebuilt it brand new.
  13. It's a layer of plastic that comes as a roll and which you cut with a box-cutter, glued to the old floor with joints on the sides so water can't seap under it. Tiling the floor would have raised it too high compared to the rest of the apartment, and forced me to cut the door. Or I would have had to break the old tiles which were small and glued to the concrete below directly and since the floor was already straight, i didn't feel like breaking it all, so I just covered it all. Good thing is it makes it easy to swap out the top layer if I want to change it for another color or if it gets damage
