q: how do you feel that nothing in your life has changed?

it's wonderful, that's just wonderful, 'cause things only get worse, things only get worse, they never get better, so if they're the same, that's okay.

purveyor of obscure movies and almost any music in my exorbitant free time.

hello! i'm a shitty web designer, let's make sure that you need to have javascript enabled to read plaintext and see images!

aarrgghh my gba still has horrible screen tearing. gotta go get the ips v2 replacement ribbon still but forgot until just now. not looking forward to taking the gba apart again either…

despite having neither the money nor space for yet another system i'm tempted to buy a snes. I'd probably only end up playing a few games anyways, but it's still really tempting.

I love working with text.
Web programming is suddenly fun! And creative!

What do you gemini folk use for generating RSS feeds and updating an index/listing in geminitext?

people say that free software is too hard to use, but what about what they picture as the alternative??

whatsapp will not send PNG images, and neither will it let you record video on, say, whatsapp web. it also won’t let you start video conversations without a facebook account. it will also not let you record video to send as a message on whatsapp web. also, you need to have your phone on in order to use whatsapp web.

on top of these lack of features, it also hocks your metadata to private corporations for money. it is also owned by the psychotic mark zuckerberg and the silicon valley corporation facebook.

i have sometimes been accused of ‘punching downwards’, ie. abusing the people i claim to want to help, by being anti-silicon valley, but doesn’t this judge too quickly? i am constantly installing free software on my community’s computers, and giving free tech support and guidance.

wouldn’t you rather trust a community of volunteers, like the BSD and GNU crowd, than a silicon valley IT corporation boss?

and no, this isn't a metaphor for something, it's actually happening outside right now.

yay! i finished almost all of the art for my royal game of ur gba game! it doesn't seem like a big accomplishment, but the only reason that i've never successfully completed a game before is because i get stuck making the art.

here's what the game will look like (i need to add a background but that's it)

bruh vector's been on the moon for almost eleven years

trying to maintain and extend devkitpro's provided makefiles is so much harder than just writing my own from scratch ever would be. i think i'm just trying to do it from sunk cost fallacy, should just go write my own.

The Royal Game of Ur is probably one of my favourite games of all time
