Privet peoples,
I spent most of the weekend working on the website for the newsletter. I added some of the quotes people wrote in last week, as well as a comment section for each newsletter issue (check out the Discuss Previous Issues link on the site). I also added stats about openings/clicks for each issue, that I'll update whenever a new issue is put out. I figured if I found it interesting, you might too. There's only really one more thing I want to add, which is relating to tags/search. If you have any recommendations, I'd be happy to hear them. Unrelated, if you haven't checked out the sponsor, I'd really appreciate it if you do. Sponsors enable me to keep allocating a substantial amount of time every week to curating and improving this newsletter. Thanks. Anyway here's that issue.

Yeah it's an old article, but get over it. The subject matter is cool. Who doesn't like seeing under-the-hood of videogames? Tautvydas Žilys's expansive article focuses on identifying and resolving a delta time (what normalizes movement in videogames for different framerates) error in the Unity game engine.
