Hi. My name is Brian. I write Ruby and Clojure code for a living. Once upon a time I helped write a book (clojurebook.com/). I have a blog I should update but rarely do (cdaddr.com). I immigrated to Canada a few years ago. I'm a cool guy?

I enjoy computers and games and music and art and other normal human activities. Most of all, I like learning new things.

I feel like I have code at work that'd be a great fit for Rust, but I'm never going to find time to get good at Rust or rewrite it all.

Minimalizing my entire house this weekend. I feel a creative mood coming on soon, and I need my atmosphere to be pleasant.

Becoming a Canadian citizen tomorrow. I'm happy that I get to vote, that international travel will be easier, that I can't be kicked out of the country at random. Still finding it hard to muster up a nationalistic fervor. Canada is cool, so are other places, I don't feel like where I live is part of my identity.

Giant server migration completed. Only 5 hours longer than I expected. That's a load off my shoulders though.

It looks like Matomo (Piwik) will do the job. Thanks for the recommends.

What's a good self-hosted stats tracker for websites? A "how many people are looking at my website and what are the most common referrers/browsers/etc" kind of thing. A more ethical replacement for Google Analytics, in other words. Anyone know a good one?

Currently learning SDL2. There are gaps in my gamedev knowledge that are only going to get filled in by playing around in the mud for a while.

I spent an evening cleaning up my vimrc. Does that count as spring cleaning?

My book was in Humble Bundle a while ago, and it looks like it sold as many copies as right after release, which hasn't happened for years. Happy surprise.

Confession: I don't know the difference between Boost and Favourite, so I pick one randomly every time.

Finshed rating every game I could get to run, which was almost all of them. itch.io/jam/lisp-game-jam-2018 Thinking of maybe doing another game jam someday (soon?). It was a great motivation to finally get off my lazy arse and finish a thing.

I'm going to spend a bunch of time making sure I play + rate every game in . It would suck to make a game and then no one rates it. This is my first code jam, so might as well do it right.

My game is finished with 10 minutes to spare.
cdaddr.itch.io/frog-collect-ch It's a treatise on the human condition. An instant classic? That's not for me to say.

Current status: (tset game :cheeseFrequency (rand 1 5))

I've finished 90% of my game. Just need to finish the other 90% tomorrow.

So far I have a frog, a pipe, and six kinds of cheese.

I want to change my name again, this time to "Receiver General". @cdaddr, can we move to Ottawa?

@cdaddr brought me tendies and hunny musty and choccy milk.

My new piano teacher is awesome. She offered to teach me to analyze and deconstruct video game music.
