#StreetFighterV: Why does the higher ranked guy get 2.5x more league points than I lose? Seems like his win points should be downscaled for beating a lower ranked guy.

Microblog-like status updates.

Reply to Woerlan's tweet:

@Woerlan aren’t you mostly a commander player now anyway? Were you still following the pro scene? (I know I wasn’t)

Still hoping GPs come back in one form or another though, those were fun

Oh this happened to me also earlier! I was wondering if there was some onboard effect that I missed that killed me lol

Summary:

  • Like every other sensible person in the pandemic, I am staying hunkered down at home all of the time. Really only going out to get groceries and meds.
  • On a work hiatus, but open to interesting opportunities.

Current Location:

  • still living in Quezon City, Philippines.

Work

  • Currently on a work hiatus. But if you have something interesting, hit me up, maybe we’ll get lucky.

How am I spending my time

  • I’m working on multiple personal projects, most of which I don’t want to talk about. The only public one is this website/blog. I write as often as I can and am constantly trying to update this site to make it better or more to my liking.
  • I still do a lot of gaming
  • Quiz team does online quiz nights, a few times a month
  • Check the weeknotes for regular updates.

Recent highlights

@HerdImmunityPH Which rate is used to compute the estimated herd immunity date? The most recent 7 day rolling average?

Bond movie no. 9: The Man With The Golden Gun (1974). Christopher Lee was a Bond villain! Beirut, Macau, Hong Kong, Bangkok. An Asian girl is introduced just for the pun in her name. Comic relief southern sheriff dude is back from the previous film. Final fight scene with Nick Nack was ridiculous. As per usual, Bond gets captured and the bad guy explains everything. Still not used to Roger Moore in the role.

Every time I accidentally nap after dinner I have to pay for it by being unable to sleep until 3am then waking up late and missing my morning walk window D:

@zaaaldehyde I’ve walked most of the northbound side of EDSA from around Trinoma QAve and Araneta to Ortigas/Pioneer I don’t recall having any trouble, but it’s been a while. Have the sidewalks been repurposed in the last 2-3 years?

This mindset reflects someone who doesn’t respect institutions or the law or civilized agreements, and basically respects only one thing: power. That’s why he thinks people who oppose China want war and why he doesn’t want to offend China, power is all he sees and values, like the thug that he is. For this kind of person, you can’t be right because of the law or because of principle, or because of justice, you can only be right if you had the ability to enforce that right. Basically the type of leader who would just collaborate with any invaders who managed to overpower us and would say wag na lang tayo gumawa ng gulo, andyan na e.

Quoted gmanews's tweet:

President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday night said the Philippines’ arbitral victory in 2016 against China’s massive claims in the West Philippine Sea before the United Nations is just paper fit to be thrown in the trash.

Ugh typos and poor grammar in these tweets. Too lazy to edit and re-post
