usual work stuff. I think I might be avoiding testing something. Maybe I should do that tomorrow.

Rewatched all of Lucifer, 'cause I like it.
Starting to catch up on iZombie.

More Factorio. I need more people to play with me on my server.

What is facto Rio? Is it minecraft or something else? If it is minecraft I am happy to come play with you. If it is something else, that may be more difficult.

Adrian described it as "holy shit it’s basically what i always wanted minecraft to be", and found a quote online saying "It's like Brood Wars met with SimCity 2000"

Basically, top-down industrial construction. You start with more or less nothing, and have to build up your manufacturing capabilities through construction and research. Lots of people have spent a LOT of time coming up with optimal layouts for how to arrange, say, the two dozen factories with interdependencies you need to construct a self-sustaining research complex with the four types of science pack. Someone else did a detailed mathematical analysis of how many power accumulators you need for how many solar panels to ensure you can run entirely on solar while staying powered all night (0.84 accumulators/panel, fwiw), and THEN designed a rather large layout that came as close to that optimal ratio as possible.

That sort of thing.

Also, there are aliens that try to attack you, so you spend a fair amount of time and effort on defense. On my multiplayer server, we've got a nice little base set up, but haven't been out killing aliens enough, so we're kinda getting surrounded.

Did I mention that the pollution from industry both attracts the aliens AND causes them to mutate into bigger and stronger aliens?

Everything I've heard about it makes it sound like it would utterly destroy my life.

It's not like you really need a job, right?
