In memory format is generally different than on disk format due to time/space tradeoffs but with the music code for example I can just compress and decompress the patterns as-is and get the tradeoff I want without even thinking about how the data structures will be stored

I can probably even store the compressed files backwards and decompress them top-down for in-place decompression for even better memory savings (this isn't my original idea, I saw Exomizer do it..I think?)

This accomplishes a few other things:
- minimal seeking on disk (three seeks for initial load + one seek per file loaded after)
- minimal code needed to compare file names (few loops and compares)
- rely on compression to go right from disk->mem w/o data transformation

Got the new archive format for the DOS game project + some rudimentary LZ compression. I designed it this way to accomplish two things: forward-only writing using my tools and forward-only reading from within the game. The names list and directory are cached in memory.

Someone told me "cool hat!" today and I was wearing my fox hat at the time. Without thinking about it I responded "thanks you too!"

It was at a McDonald's drive thru

What will make this challenging is we have so many really good healers on the raid team that they're leaving me with less to do as we get smoother at completing the encounters.

Stats updated last night, I am now the highest ilvl druid on Windseeker. 🎺

Not that the best gear is indicated by the highest ilvl, but I have been dedicated to finishing my gear list. I'm #9 on the healer all-stars for the server, got a couple other druids to beat.

I will probably update it to be OPL2+OPL3 but I need to figure out how that's going to work first.

This wasn't a "I shook the can" issue so much as a "the can was actually overfull" issue

Life was made 100x better by removing games which guilted me for not playing them.

This removed so many mobile and modern games with loot box mechanics and those with daily login incentives.

WoW TBC classic is going to be a quandary for me in this regard with its own dailies.

I'm trying my hand at OPL2 patch writing and I gotta say.. really love these aliasing artifacts, but I am probably just going to fall into the psydance pit: soundcloud.com/saxxonpike/2021
