I really like that the redesign in Insider Preview of the Windows 10 Game Bar includes an easy to read clock. It's one of the simple things that the Xbox overlays have gotten right for a long time (at least since the 360), but have long been inconsistent in PC game overlays. Clock alone skyrockets the usefulness of the Game Bar.

That feeling when company executives announce a drop in paid holidays.

New twist of course is hanging up on "Is [so and so] there?" if the name is not mine. Thanks robots for ruining that bit of etiquette. At this point I don't care if it's still considered rude to hang up there, if you don't know who you are calling you are likely a robot now.

Still iterating on ways to say "Hello" that humans don't mind but robots don't recognize. I guess it's a vocal captcha problem, and I'm sure that it's ultimately a doomed endeavor. Phone calls are stupid, why do we still allow them such priority over our devices?

I'm dreaming of a Snowy Life Day / Just like the ones I used to know. ☃ Sleep deprived me thinks I'd pay to see Disney make Hoth: Snowy Life Day: A Star Wars Musical. (Still laughing about using White Christmas as a referent capstone in my recent Star Wars blog post.)

Bright was... alright I guess. Mostly just left me wondering when the next Dragon Age game will be out.

I posted far too many words about my troubled feelings about Poe Dameron's storyline in The Last Jedi. I'm sorry.

@grumpygamer Suppose you had tools that supported running unit tests in virtual time, with visual/graphical diff support of expected versus actual output, though? It's possible to imagine (much) better unit testing tools for games, especially since a lot of them have been built for web dev in the last few years.
