Statistically speaking, you’re not reading this. I suppose that’s technically true for most writing. Given the ratio of available reading material to the amount of time people spend reading, the vast majority of all writing is only read by a tiny sliver of the population. Harry Potter is the best selling book series of all time, yet the first book has sold a pathetic 120 million copies. Which means that JK Rowling’s culture-wide smash hit has been read by less than 2% of the world’s population.
Which means that, on average, nobody reads anythingIf you disagree, please attempt to prove me wrong by buying my book..
I suppose it’s not fair to say that nobody reads this site. I mean, someone must be leaving all these comments. But even if we’re comparing the readership of this site to the readership of this site as of last week, it’s still pretty low. Odds are, you’re on break from school. Or you’ve taken some days off of work. Or you’re traveling to visit relatives. On the off chance you are still working, you’re probably too busy to check on my site because everyone else went on holiday and left you with all the work. The jerks. Whatever the reason, you’re not following your usual routine and thus you’re not here.
On Saturday December 22, 2018, there were exactly two comments. All day. On the entire site. That’s crazy. The site usually gets more than that an hour. When a popular post goes up, we’ll get about that many a minute.
As a result, I’m not eager to put up a ton of content right now. There’s no point in posting something if nobody’s around to discuss itBut then why am I writing this post?. I think I’m going to change up the publishing schedule for the next couple of weeks. If something goes up a bit late or appears on a different day from what you’re used to, that’s why.
If it helps, this week you’ll get an extra-long, super-informal Christmas Eve Diecast. I know that nothing gets me into the Christmas spirit like a couple of nerds talking about BattleTech, Rimworld, Hitman, and Starcraft.
 If you disagree, please attempt to prove me wrong by buying my book.
 But then why am I writing this post?
Starcraft 2: Rush Analysis
I write a program to simulate different strategies in Starcraft 2, to see how they compare.
The Strange Evolution of OpenGL
Sometimes software is engineered. Sometimes it grows organically. And sometimes it's thrown together seemingly at random over two decades.
Do It Again, Stupid
One of the highest-rated games of all time has some of the least interesting gameplay.
Philosophy of Moderation
The comments on most sites are a sewer of hate, because we're moderating with the wrong goals in mind.
The Death of Half-Life
Valve still hasn't admitted it, but the Half-Life franchise is dead. So what made these games so popular anyway?
