Trying to decide what the best way to reformat it is… I'm open to suggestions.
Lexicologists must be having a field day keeping up with Internet-culture expressions like "big mood", "galaxy brain", and "send tweet".
This post brought to you by me seeing another "[hot take] send tweet" post on and being fascinated that that phrase has a widely-understood non-literal meaning in that specific context.
Sometimes my mind boggles at how quickly Uru's netcode chokes on such a small scope of responsibility (tracking player movement & position, a handful of object states, and updating a few physics object positions) compared to the amount of computation that other MMOs seem to handle easily (NPCs, mob AI, combat, dynamic events...).
Love it when a big group of people roam from a meeting into the development room to dick around in the testing lab and have the LOUDEST POSSIBLE CONVERSATION about at least 5 different topics for 20 minutes, because I was finding it just a little too easy to concentrate today. Thank you, coworkers, for keeping me on my toes.
Today’s widget update part 2:
So something's going on neurologically. Vet's not going straight for MRI/CAT because treatment will be the same whether we get tests or not. We're to keep watching her for now. I have instructions on how to handle further attacks.
It's possible something just happened and she's going to recover on her own. If this only happens once more, and she's back to normal, we should be good. If they keep going and getting more violent, we’ll medicate with anti-seizure meds.
So, today’s Widget update part 1:
Ok so, diagnostic summary: It's not likely a polyp/tumor or cancer in the brain. Her EKG and BP are normal/normalish so it's not a hypertensive/cardiac event. Her diaphram is a bit more upright than one would expect, but doesn't seem to be a problem. Her airways are pretty decent for a cat who's had asthma for a long time. Her thyroid came back normal. Radiology showed that her abdomen looked good, kidneys, bladder, liver, etc all looked good.
vet bills, help needed
Reposting this when it's not the middle of the night…
We had to run our cat to the emergency vet last night after she suddenly lost her balance and had trouble walking. She seemed to recover while we were there, but we need to keep an eye on her and could *really* use a hand with the bill and any follow-up visits. If you can spare a little, please send to:
Boosts are appreciated. Thanks ❤️
