I am psychologically ⅓ Unix greybeard, ⅓ Libre software evangelical, and ⅓ dad nostalgic for retro games and tech (and 100% dragon :P); but unfortunately I'm in the body of a gen Y/Z techbro, the type of person you'd imagine when thinking of someone who programs webshits or “AI” for FAANG (or whatever the new abbreviation is).

Finally got around to commissioning a ref sheet for myself! Look at that handsome fella!

remember that you should keep your important floppy disks on the fridge with a magnet so you don't forget where they are.

Okay I got a bit of time so I'm going to get the Summer issue of 2600 since barnes and noble didn't have it last time 😡

Hopefully they're not completely out, they still had Spring 2021 when I went a few weeks ago so I assume they just didn't stock the Summer edition yet?

@kelbot What sort of PalmOS software are you downloading? Other than a few games and software that's caught my eye I don't really have any idea what to look for specifically and figured I could take inspiration from what you're downloading.

Dragons are awesome, and dragons are good
Many folks would be dragons if only they could

Dragons have scales that can outshine a gem
Metadragons could hoard all of them

Dragons can fly, except those who can't
Very few species vary like that

Dragons are scary, and dragons are wise
With the cleverest thoughts, and the deepest of eyes

(With apologies to Mr. Watterson.)

Spoilers for Dwarf Fortress game progression 

Unpopular opinion: the “Too Deep…” message in DF 23a is far creepier and intriguing than breaking into the underworld in modern versions. Of course it ruins the gameplay since it permanently and irreversibly ends the fortress, but in terms of atmosphere it's better.

In a strange bit of year 2000 deja vu the excruciating wait for my PDA to arrive.

Okay back to the old standby of scrolling the fantasy language vocabularies on the Dwarf Fortress wiki until I see a word I like

I'm playing Pixpet and ahhh I have to name things it's impossible. Usually I just name my Pokemon joke or meme names but I don't know if I want to do that here…

Now that I have a Palm on the way I have a request. What are the best Palm OS resources and download sites these days? If you've got any tips please send 'em my way.

there must be some secret torrent site that only deals in ISO/IEC/IEEE standards documents.

I find it hard to believe there are no pirates in industry.

Was just at the Denver Oktoberfest. I'm sure “Das Jumbo Bratwurst” is authentic German, right?

I want to make an album titled Pink Floyd — The White Album (that's the album title, not the artist and album) that consists entirely of bluegrass songs about high fantasy stories and lore.
