puzzling puzzle

Wish I could understand why, when someone is reporting a really strange problem, I can get 100% puzzled by it and stuck. But then, if I manage to reproduce the same problem, I can always quickly figure out the root cause and fix it.

It's often a night and day difference, I can go round and round with a user for hours trying to understand what they did, but once I reproduce the problem, I can have it fixed in minutes.

It's something to do with bandwidth, and limited information, and communication difficulties, and confirmation bias, and.. I don't know what all.

Being able to diagnose and fix reproducible problems is a good skill. Being able to coax reproducible test cases out of users is a good skill. But I feel there's something here I could be better at.

(Users could also be a lot better at reporting bugs and reliably communicating of course..)

brainy bus

On the bus at 5 am, sleepily looking thru slices of my brain while on my way to see RMS.

Git's data/protocol certainly allows that; its UI does not have an easy way.

We should sit down and look at using propellor. Its properties and their configuration parameters are fully introspectible now.

This is something that propellor may get more right than the rest.. :)

enjoying my own game

Playing with the "one side only, no vomiting" conduct, I got down all the way to Xanadu in Scroll!

Had to sacrifice 1 tail segment along the way, and got into a tight situation with a fungus infection, with the scroll bearing down on me, that I only managed to escape with a last-minute Reverse spell that put my head pinchingly close to the scroll.

Finished up by wishing and got "A scattering of SPACE's appear", followed by an unusual horizontal whiteout, which got me through the gates to Xanadu!

I think it's about ready to release :) Good thing too as my 7DRL time period ends in 21 hours..

literary pretensions

infiniteSteamOfConciousness :: Joyce -> StdGen -> String

I am entirely too pleased with this haskell function. And yes, it really is an infinite stream of conciousness.

The texts are somewhat randomized, but I am going to have a much more random level soon, thanks to James Joyce. It will probably be super hard!

playtesters wanted

Help playtest my 7drl! http://scroll.joeyh.name:4242/

Or, telnet scroll.joeyh.name
Login: scroll
Password: scroll

Feedback about what works, what doesn't etc, appreciated. It's hard to both write and also balance a roguelike in just 7 days, without feedback.

moment

That moment when your new project gets a TODO or BUGs list. Never quite the same after that.
