Pixiv Cheesecake 2


Need a little touchup on the script still, but I merged together tag translations from two sources (1, 2) and cleaned up a lot of the cruft, ending up with 8,238 tags and (mostly-reasonable) translations. Next will probably be adding a uniq() function to cover duplicates created by the translations.

Of course, the moment I ran the script on this small set of images, it immediately barfed out 107 tags that weren’t on the list…

(Seriously, though, in all these years, no one had added translations for horn, saké, bento, white_hair, black_bra, long_hair, frilly_panties, or high_quality_panties? Most of the rest were series-related, at least)

Pixiv test


Working on upgrading my posting script to extract keywords and proper URLs from Pixiv downloads. PixivPy mostly works, although Python is my least-favorite language to hack about in. I haven’t found a good mapping table to create English versions of most tags, even though I know Pixiv has one. The API is kind of goofy, since it’s straightforward REST, but relies on pretending you’re the official Android/iOS client to get authentication to work. Documentation is lacking in two languages.

“Looks like I picked a bad day to take up armed robbery”


Florida Man robs liquor store with knife. So far, just another day in paradise.

His getaway car fails to start, so he tries carjacking, getting a few cuts in before his victim pulls a gun on him and scares him off.

He then jumps into the passenger seat of a car in a Starbucks drive-thru. Driver hops out, opens the trunk, and pulls her gun on him, scaring him off.

Eventually he surrenders when police track him to the restroom in a nearby Supercuts.

Bash path maintenance


I’m a little OCD about my $PATH

cleanpath () {
    local path p result
    local -A seen
    PATH=${PATH//::/:}
    IFS=":" read -r -a path <<< "$PATH"
    for p in "${path[@]}"; do
        if [ -z "${seen[$p]}" ]; then
            result="$result:$p"
            seen["$p"]=1
        fi
    done
    PATH=${result:1}
}

Fallout 76 quick take


No mods.

No NPCs.

No companions.

No pause button.

No offline play.

No save/restore.

No console.

No game at all when they decide to shut down the servers.

Update

Thinking about it a little more, I think there’s going to be a much bigger problem than any of the above: nerfs.

Even if it’s not just a gankfest of foul-mouthed randos, the simple fact that it emphasizes PVP is going to produce frequent “game balance” updates that force you to change your play-style whenever someone comes up with a min-maxed buildout that lets them roflstomp your painstakingly-crafted homestead.

Clearly, the only way to play is in carefully-curated groups of like-minded friends, so of course I expect them to make that hard to do, and default to dumping you into public sewers servers.

3D Cheesecake 4


The power went out at home (~4,000 people affected…) while I was prepping this set, so no names for now.

[Update: filled in most of the first half; annoyed that Google just returns “girl” for the first one…]
