YouTube playlist is buggy; it is falling apart with my 400 music videos playlist. Slow, stops playing at random times and refuses to restart.

I have an idea for tutorial processing. I feel my tutorials are too slow-paced. Personally, I watch my own tutorials on 2x speed. I’m wondering if I should record them normally, then speed them up to 2x and re-narrate them to match my own 2x talking speed.

Does anyone use the Insert button to toggle between insert and override mode? I never use it, but occasionally press it by accident, then I try to hit backspace? We probably have to repurpose the button for something more useful.

Some game developers ask: “I spent 3, 4, 5 years working on a game, and then I released it. Some minor issues, like problems with the controller, generated negative reviews that set the tone for the whole project, and the game sank. How can I avoid these types of mistakes?”

I th…

If someone says to you, “I am Taiwanese” or “I am Singaporean,” and you reply, “Nah, you are Chinese,” remember that they feel the same way as if a Ukrainian says, “I am Ukrainian,” and you reply, “Nah, you are Russian.” Please, be mindful.

Today I went to the SoCal Startup Day and saw a lot of desperate entrepreneurs. I could see it in their faces. They go for the pitch, it’s high energy and upbeat. But then they come downstairs, and their expressions change from smiles to desperation. It’s a horrible sight. I ques…

I had a strange dream. I invited Elon Musk to a Bible study group in my dream, and he agreed and came to the meeting. He was super chill and seemed to be having fun, while I was very self-conscious, thinking I was wasting Musk’s time with the Bible study. Then I started thinking …

Should we start calling Proton PINE (Proton is not an emulator)? Some people call it an emulator, and it triggers me a bit.

The 2FA into my studio takes so much time; sometimes I get distracted while waiting for the webpage to come up, and ending up on the timed-out page, because I forgot that I was about to log in to the studio system.

Sometimes my Unreal Engine gets confused about which GPU to use, giving the error “Cannot find a compatible Vulkan device that supports surface presentation”. I am fixing it by adding -graphicsadapter=X. For example, `/mnt/Texas/prj/ue5.4/Engine/Binaries/Linux/UnrealEditor ~/pr…

The Actor Lifecycle is a very useful documentation page. Do you put all starting functionality into BeginPlay? And you’re trying to figure out dependencies between an actor’s initialization? What if this actor runs BeginPlay first and another one hasn’t run it yet? Check this…

If you cannot select translucent objects in Unreal Engine, just press T; it toggles the ability to select translucent objects.

I have an interesting thought: ChatGPT, in its current state, may actually help people improve their communication skills. Since ChatGPT can be somewhat limited in understanding, it requires clear and well-written input to comprehend. This mirrors the skills necessary for effecti…

Modern Game Engines are forcing the development in the waterfall style, the asset pipeline is so rigid it is forcing developers to build the ‘PROCESS’ around it. My dream is to be able to easily make small tweaks at any stage of the game development.

Today, I learned that I do not ask “why” questions often enough. For decades, I was implementing the OnClick event on mouse button release. Then, I watched a video (link below) where John Carmack asked the “why” question and realized it is better to implement the OnClick even…

Would you trust a guy who created a tech (software) company with “open” in the name, like OpenCV, OpenStack, or OpenBSD, and later said he meant “open” as in available to the public, not open source? Would you trust that guy?

If shampoo Head & Shoulders worked, they would go out of business. Therefore, Head & Shoulders does not work.

Multiple times I considered setting up a keylogger on my laptop for the convenience of having a recording of everything I typed. However, I didn’t trust myself to be diligent enough to clean up the log files that would inevitably contain my passwords and other sensitive informati…

If you need to scale faces in Blender and it’s kind of working but not exactly, try using Shrink/Fatten (Alt+S); you may get better results.
