Oh my God, we're so sorry we blocked your doorway. Now go get your ear muffs.

I’ve had a long respectable career in game development. A couple of years ago I’ve abandoned it for a cushy corporate job, and now spend most of my days missing gamedev.

This story takes place about 10 years ago at the apex of my career.

I was the lead on a AAA project. Our parent company, for which videogames was just one of many lines of business, was going through changes. We had to move offices three times in one year. Second of the three moves, always intended to be temporary, put us into the basement of an older building long occupied by satellite departments not involved with development.

The basement we were given had been empty for years, save for the most distant office. You entered the basement through a dimly lit staircase. Then, after you snaked through a horror-movie-like maze of corridors and interconnected small rooms, you’d eventually arrive at the farthest room of all.

A golden plaque was on the door.

MASTERPOST: Studying Methods

hey guys! I thought I’d put together a detailed list of the studying methods I use for my different classes :) Hopefully this will help some of you out!

  • Know what you don’t know. This first one is probably the most important! Look through your notes or textbook and keep a list of questions you have as you go through. Look at the explanations and questions in the textbook and think about how you would solve the question. Doing every single question can be really time consuming. If you can’t answer some questions on your list, email your teacher or go see them before class!
  • Flashcards! I swear by flashcards for subjects like biology, social studies, english and french. Flash cards are perfect for memorizing terms! For biology, if I have to remember a sequence of events or terms, I will put them on flashcards and mix them up and put them back in the correct order. Don’t be afraid to put drawings or sketches on flashcards too! It can be really useful if you’re a visual learner.
  • Quizlet Ah yes the wonders of Quizlet! Quizlet is an online flashcard maker where you can have decks of flashcards for all your different classes. I keep my classes on “private” mode and if I see a friend struggling to learn the material before a test, I just tell them to make an account and request to join my class so they can have access too :) Quizlet is also super handy because you can do things like matching games and they also have a mobile app!
  • Beautifying notes Okay so this is a big thing in studyblr and you don’t have to have pretty pens and tiny neat handwriting to make it work. Redoing your rough notes to make them “pretty” is really just another form of revision! You spend more time looking at the material taking time to make it look nice, and you’re also much more likely to want to look back at your notes at the end of the year to revise. To me, looking at a bunch of pencil scribbles from class really doesn’t cut it for me to learn properly.
  • Summarizing My FAVE thing ever. Summarizing is the god send of all studying methods. If you know the details but not the backbone of the material, it’s a given that you won’t be able to ace a test. Make a one sided piece of paper into a summary per chapter. Write your summary page as if you’re teaching it to someone else. Include key words, pictures and diagrams. These are also really handy for studying for a final exam!
  • Trouble spots Look back at your quizzes or worksheets and don’t just look for right or wrong answers. Trace back exactly what you did and exactly where you went wrong. You will remember looking back at your mistakes and hopefully you won’t make the same one again! Making mistakes can be good but only if you learn from them! Make sure to include your trouble spots in flash cards or summary pages you make!
Getting removed from a group email list I did not sign up for.

A while ago my email address was added to a mailing list for a church group located in the southern USA. It was a Gmail address and I naturally assume it was added in error.

I deleted the first few messages as there were not many.  After a week or so the volume of email started to increase a lot as there events being organised and everyone was responding with reply all.

First off I sent an email to he address that seemed to belong to the organiser, the one who was initiating the email chains.

“hi, I am not part of your group.  Please remove me from this email distribution list.”

No response.

Over the next couple of days,  as each new message arrives,  I send another one.

No response.

So far I have only been sending to the leader.

Next day I send a reply all. (they are not sending the messages BCC, so I can see all the addresses)

Again,  I am ignored. I try again, no response.

I am now receiving 10-20 of this crap a day. So I take the nuclear option.

As each message arrives, I reply all with porn images.

“since you won’t remove me from the list here is my imput”

I start mild and crank it up. Stuff that makes gaotse look like a gentleman boner post.

I recieve outraged replies about this being a Christian Church group, I reply with something worse.

“I asked nicely for weeks to be removed and was ignored. So here is another fine picture for you. ”

The email list disappeared from my inbox within 24 hours.

For some reason, I get emails from the GOP and Drumpf. Today’s email was regarding his approval ratings. Note the options for the poll. Anyone who has ever taken a statistics, sociology, or psychology class can tell you that this poll is not at all scientifically viable. The options are all positive descriptors and there’s too much that can be meant by ‘other’ to give you an accurate reading of this idiots approval rating. This is why he thinks he’s so universally adored. This is the kind of thing his followers show him to give him an ego boost. But you know for a fact that if it was Hilary, Bernie, or even Obama, the choices for a poll conducted by the GOP would be negative.

Hey!! Maybe you've answered this before and I just haven't seen it but do you have a masterpost for cheap art supplies?? I'm trying to gather things for my design 1&2 class for when school starts and things like prismas and copics aren't available to me. Thanks!!

Heyo there! 

Just a small note, for some things, like painting, where you can fully mix colors, it’s sometimes better to buy a very small higher quality set  (even like 3 colors is good), versus a larger, but less quality set. If the prices end up being similar–the big, cheaper brand set is close in price to the tiny, high quality set, definitely go for the smaller, higher quality set. However, there are also a ton of great value art brands out there, but not all of them. 

Personally, I avoid artist’s loft, for example. Those are a bit frustrating. 

Micheal’s, Blick, & Jo-Ann Fabric/Arts Stores often have great sales, so check them out too. 

@hazmatt86 also recommends signing up for Hobby Lobby’s email list and getting a 40% off coupon. 

Update: I rewrote the post here, and there is better linking capabilities when I write the theme myself & host myself.

anonymous asked:

I secretly keep receipts that customers do not want & bring them home with me. Then with my list of emails from friends & a bunch of personal/old emails, I fill out the survey & give my store, coworkers, & myself glowing reviews 9-10s across the board. At various times to not make it look suspicious. More of a fuck you to our manager who thinks a score of '7' when 2 people are working nights with a line to the door is horrible. The rest of the scores were 8+!(Clean,food,service,employee,overall)

I tried to keep this as simple as possible and used the same reference so you can see the difference with each style !

I am willing to colour sketches so you do not need to purchase lineart for it to be coloured. “Full Colour” is not an upgrade to “Flat Colour” so if eg. you want a waist-length sketch with full colour it’s not $5 +$5 +$10 it would just be $5 +$10 = $15
If you choose to purchase a coloured sketch, the lines will look more like this. There is a chance your lines will look like this regardless of whether you purchased colour or not, what brush I use depends on my mood so if you have a preference please make sure to let me know before I get started

I will be sending a lot of wips to make sure it’s exactly how you pictured it and am willing to make as many edits as necessary while still in the sketching stage. (this applies to lineart and colour, if you ordered a sketch i will send you a rough stick figure to work out the correct pose)

Things I will not draw:

  • mecha/armor
  • furry
  • animals in general
  • nsfw
  • oc’s without visual reference (oc’s with visual reference are ok)

Everything else is ok !

You can message me here via my inbox or with an instant message or my twitter
I accept full payment upfront via paypal (paypal only) which i will send to you after we’ve agreed on your commission

I reserve the right to deny any commissions for whatever reason


NOTE: all sketches will be delivered with black ink unless requested otherwise, the only reason the example is purple is because my sai crashed before i could save it and i was lucky enough to have taken a screenshot but editing it to black afterwards looked Bad

For some reason “Limb-Ripper is back. He’s back for some limbs” has been popping into my head and cracking me up all damn day.  Like most of these mailing list emails have some sort of clever little phrase or excessive emojis in the subject line as a little eye-catch or whatever, but whoever runs the Spirit Halloween mailing list is just like, “Limb ripper.  He rips limbs.  Perfect.  Aaaaaaaaaand SEND.”  And honestly??? Fucking mood.
