Never got around to posting my RIX prerelease deck and pool. First time doing an Izzet deck, so even though I lost a lot, I think I learned how to play it properly? Moreso than before? #mtg https://social.isharacomix.org/media/kWxrDDNt7yAPYnq-s9U
Long Post: Just started playing Gran Turismo Sport Show more
So this is my first GT game since GT2 waaaaay back on PS1.
The "Driving School" is top notch. I feel like I'm learning a lot of stuff about proper racing form that I never noticed before. I also love the part where they break each course into its component curves and let you practice them piece by piece.
I'll probably never play online, but the "sportsmanship" mechanic makes me want to stop driving like I do in Need for Speed.
Reddit after the #mtg standard banlist announcement:
Another 3-0 FNM draft! Had to compete with someone else in the pod for Vampires, but managed to win hard by giving Adanto Vanguard the Mark of the Vampire. #mtg
My John Avon Kickstarter rewards arrived! #mtg
I'm super excited about the #MtG RIX prerelease this weekend. I missed XLN's prerelease and everyone apparently says that XLN plays a lot better in sealed than in draft.
Using Neural Networks to Upscale & Stylize Pixel Art
I trained a neural network on a list of deleted Wikipedia titles. Not sure who is weirder this time, neural net or humans. http://aiweirdness.com/post/169309161212/wikipedia-articles-invented-by-a-neural-network

I like my takes the way I like my wings. 🔥
Feel welcome to reply and engage: I mostly talk about tech and game design.
I'm just your average guy in tech. Open source is super neat.
My broad interests are in technology, development, automation, and especially education. I went to grad school to study educational data mining, the process of using data from classroom artifacts to improve instruction and understand the psychology of learning. Now I'm a software developer at a startup.
I'm really interested in game design, especially as a proxy for thinking about education. Right now I'm particularly into Magic the Gathering.
My hosting is provided by masto.host. Having a private Mastodon instance is really cool (especially when you use it as a website!), but takes some getting used to since it becomes harder to find new people and for new people to find you. If you are interested in engaging with other people, you'll need to put in the extra work. And, of course, you can always just find an instance at JoinMastodon.
