Journal: gamergate

Journal by Teunis

the more I hear from proponents of this, the more I see it as being no different than any other mob out to corrupt the masses.
Y'all are doing great press in gamergate to show yourselves as being bullies, harassers, and in general a great example of corruption in gaming. You're screaming and railing (and causing a lot of trouble) because it seems your privilege of being able to invade others' private spaces without their permission is being questioned.
Probably because you were beaten as a child. Well so what? so were your targets (likely). So were everyone who you're "trying to show as being The Monster".

I'm sorry, that doesn't cut the mustard.
You want good games? Make 'em. Don't cry to me if you can't - because you're obviously too busy harassing others to do anything productive.

Me, I make games these days. and I'm getting real tired of the poison your group is spewing into my field.

Journal: the last couple of years

Journal by Teunis

I had a big contract fail and almost completely bankrupt me. These things happen... so for the last few years I've been rebuilding. I spent a year driving forklift at a warehouse (VERY enlightening - I learnt a lot about people and communications there), two years at alphatrade.com as a network administrator (job slightly more complex, a lot of interplay with marketing. Lots of fun but the crash hit work hard). I spent a year and a half just -recovering- as the forklift job ended when I got injuries that needed time to heal. Now I'm working as a computer tech and starting to pick up code again. I'm not yet sure what to work on but I'm fascinated by anything OpenGL, communications, video based, audio based and database based. I've a weakness for GIS-related but haven't really worked in the field since the early 90s. pidgin looks like it needs some things. We'll see...

Journal: These days

Journal by Teunis
Working at Century Office Machines. Definitely not computer related. Actually we only have a web page because the boss thought it'd be a fun thing to do and I run a webserver in my off time so...
Anyways, working with machines from various pre-computer era is fun. There IS a computer here but we don't use it for anything other than research.

I have to admit I'm enjoying it but...
...I miss programming.

No line available at 300 baud.

Working...
