    I did. I forked some CMS-like tool over, it had a Zelda inspired name I think. I can't remember what it was called. I had trouble getting it to work, plus as far as I had read my entire fork was publicly visible a la free Github, though I could have mistook that for something else.

    I saw someone on here reference Neocities so I'm going to give them a try.

    I'm planning to work on my new game project. I think I've finally grasped the idea of a Finite State Machine (FSM), so I'll look to implement it this weekend. My partner is working evenings all weekend so barring visiting her in the morning, I'll have a lot of time to myself.

    Also, I'll be looking to set up a basic static HTML/CSS page on https://sk-game-dev.neocities.org/, to have a free, simple place to keep my project(s) up to date, as I didn't renew my old hosting and domain.

    Good luck with the new medication! I have seborrheic dermatitis (at least, that's what I was originally diagnosed with, but it could be plaque psoriasis of the scalp), and one small patch of psoriasis on my knee. I was prescribed ketokonazole for the sebderm, and Dovobet for my psoriasis. The ketokonazole did nothing this time like it used to when I was a wee child. However, I tried the dovobet on my scalp and I'm lucky enough that I'm completely clear. I've had some form of skin grossness since I was like 5 or 6, and I eventually just gave up after high school and let it get bad (a wound basically began to creep down from my scalp, past my hairline and onto my forehead and I just accepted it)

    My partner is working evenings this week (Mon-Thurs) so I'll be left to my own devices. I'm back to work from a staycation now so at least I have work passing the time haha.

    I'm going to try to work on my plat/action prototype, as I want to refine all the mechanics into a state machine, which is something I'm not very familiar with doing, as well as find a feasible method for level shifting, as I don't have one yet.

    The level shifting thing is tough because it cannot function entirely the same way that a Zelda NES/GB style one would, due to variable level sizes affecting the camera. Unfortunately there's not a lot of tutorials for that in Godot.

    I did finally buckle down with Godot, though not with my previous project. My current project is an action platformer a la Mega Man X. Just building out the game's functionality and testing everything, but here are some screenshots (they're Discord links but hopefully they work):

    Movement, Dash and Jump

    Bullet failure 1

    Bullet failure 2

    That's a good point. I have terrible short term memory, especially for remembering messages, thoughts, and names.

    I scored 90%. I may have missed one or two prior to the static images, but I feel like I only had a 50% rating on the staticy ones. Some were obvious to me when staticed, but others were guesses.

    I'm hoping to start back on my Zelda-like game rewrite tonight, and carry that throughout the weekend, barring the mornings. I'll be spending the mornings with my partner as she is working evenings. Then I have two weeks off of work for some staycay, so hopefully put some more oomph into some devving.

    My opinion: Nuclear doesn't solve the energy problem. It just lengthens the time we have before we reach a zero state. However, this would be giving us time to find a permanent, clean solution: clean energy, tokamak-like technology, or something else we don't know about yet.

    Sold my Pontiac G6 after it sitting in my garage for a year. I bought an Impreza last year and just never made an attempt to sell my old car. My coworker's step daughter was looking for her first car and fell in love with the G6 when she saw it lol The sale was made official today.

    Not sure what else is going on, to be honest. Spending time with my partner, but otherwise no plans.

    I've yet to start back up on my game dev project. I just haven't made time for it. I'm going to try to get the next couple weeks off for a staycation and probably take a run at it during that time.

    Also, salt intake. Not Sodium, but focus on making sure you're getting adequate potassium and magnesium in your diet.

    I'd say, while it may be some dehydration, you could also be under-salted. You could have been missing some (or a lot of) potassium and magnesium.

    I didn't post in this before the weekend, so more of a recount of my weekend: Friday night I had a few (see: exorbitant number of) drinks, and spent all of Saturday and most of Sunday recovering. At 30, a single day of hangover recovery does not happen anymore.

    Spent the whole weekend minus the evening on Sunday with my partner. She was wonderful in helping me survive the weekend hahaha.

    I love cheese curds. However, being from a small town in Saskatchewan (they call it a city but it's a lie), the restaurants' poutines use shredded mozzarella, and damned if they aren't nearly as delicious.

    I'm also a heathen and add pepper and ketchup.
