The economics of gaming with your kid
Not even an ill-timed decision to update to Ubuntu 20.04 update could stop Reactor.am from going up tonight! It did require Mark retyping a tedious four-word command, but thanks to his pile of Ruby & shell scripts, that was the entirety of the cost. However, Justin still won't add intro music to the show until 10 people email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for it.
Justin's got Nugget ready for review, but it's been surprisingly tough to get it reviewed! Mark invited three relatively successful boostrappers he knows, but no bites yet. On the good side, Justin's gotten a couple of positive reviews through his network.
The 4th of July is coming up and this is a leap year in the Chinese lunisolar calendar! That means lots of big meals in a short time for Mark, but not quite at the level of the epic feat he pulled off a decade back in which he managed to partake in a Dragon Boat feast in Taipei, a Canada Day BBQ in Toronto and then a 4th of July in Boulder.
Justin has gone DEEP into the economics of Roblox and has started messing with Roblox Studio and seeing what it would take to make a game his son Jack would enjoy. He's keeping a lid on the details for now, but a side-side-SIDE-SIDE project may be underway.
Justin's goals for next time
- Get the Nugget Bootcamp out to the world
- Get out for a "proper" walk each day
Mark's goals for next time
- Stay on point for diet 5 days this week
- Work on Phoenix Igniter
- Reactor.am is already "done"
