  1. Fang and Bone – N4A Chat Thread, March 2018

    IntraLASIK has been an option for ~10 years now, which doesn't require any cutting with a sharp instrument. The flap itself is also created with a laser. The operation itself is a bit uncomfortable since they attached a silicone suction cup thing to my eye, and I could also smell my eye burning - but it's all done so quickly that it's worth it. My vision is still quite cloudy, though it should clear up in just over an hour. Vision will continue to fluctuate and improve over the course of the next week. I'm already noticing the results, even with how cloudy my vision is now! I've worn contacts for almost a decade, and while I didn't find them uncomfortable to wear, they could be a hassle. I'm looking forward to being able to head out on nights without needing to worry about whether I'd need to bring contact fluid. Long-term (~20 years), this "investment" will also pay itself off based on the price of contacts and fluid alone. Plus I no longer need to spend any time dealing with glasses or contacts. I can simply wake up and get a start on my day! The cherry on top is that I found out I had a very slight astigmatism in both eyes (-0.25). This should have also been corrected with surgery and my vision should exceed what was achievable with glasses or contacts.

    Heading out for my LASIK eye surgery appointment in about an hour. I'm pretty optimistic! People have had consistently excellent things to say about this doctor, and AFAIK he's the most experienced in the procedure in New Zealand.

    Happy birthday! One of my flatmates has been playing Bloodborne recently. I love the gameplay and style of it, but urgh, the frame pacing issues make it really unsettling for me to actually play. How I yearn for a PC release. Still a darned good game, though. But I definitely enjoy watching it more than I enjoy actually playing it.

    I've installed a new version of the theme that's made it possible to remove quite a lot of render-blocking JavaScript. This should make the site feel even snappier when loading between pages.

    I just got out of a consultation for eye surgery. I'm scheduled for LASIK on the 21st of March! Hoorah!

    Should be fixed now. @Chrom looks like the HTML wasn't closed properly when you updated @ace's username colour.

    Yeah, I see it too. That's weird. Only seems to affect a portion of that page, as if some HTML tag wasn't closed or something. Will have to investigate further when I'm home this evening.

    Fixed! There must have been an issue in the database during a migration. Some of the profile fields got set to group 0, which doesn't exist. Run a query to update those to 2 (the contact details group) and all is well.

    100,000 posts reached! That's an exciting milestone.
  10. The first homebrew emulators have hit Switch

    I personally love homebrew software and I think that there's a lot of potential to tap into with the Switch, but it's a shame that most people will instead use this primarily as a means of pirating games. I had Homebrew Channel on my Wii and used it for dumping games for faster load times off of a flash drive, but I never loaded up any games that I didn't already own. I doubt there will be any similar motivation to run homebrew software on the Switch, but as a developer myself, I always enjoy these types of exploits when they're not used maliciously.

    Trump is on a maniacal tweetstorm today. What the heck is this tweet?! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/948355557022420992

    Got a call from the bank about a mortgage. I'm likely going to be buying a house very soon! So excited!!

    I can relate to that! I went through the same hoops when gifting @fuzz The Witcher 3 and Stardew Valley. Gifting internationally can sometimes be quite the task, even digitally. Thanks again, by the way! No doubt I'm going to enjoy it.

    Yeah, that's one of the many things that I quite enjoy about living here! We're just across from the botanical gardens. We're getting some long overdue rain today - it's relaxing! Here's a clearer photo out the window: I'm looking to buy my own house very soon. Hoping to get a view half as good as this!
