One of my favourite things about switching to mastodon is the lightweight, ad and spyware free Android client @Tusky . So nice to have a social media app on my phone without my battery draining , or worrying about data collection. tusky.app/

Time to watch some classic DungeonMaster by FTL , being longplay streamed weekly on Retro Hangout twitch.tv/sigurbjornl

Great to see PixelGaiden showing a BMC64 build, a bare metal emulator for running on @duhproject youtu.be/2nDLEJHPtbo

Friendly reminder: "X as a service" is just a misleading corporate euphemism for "pay forever for not owning it".

"Software as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the software".

"Games as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning games".

"Infrastructure as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the hardware".

And so on.

There is no "cloud", it's just other people's computers

More BBSing on the Pinebook Pro using Syncterm under Manjaro Linux. This time in ANSI.

I usually use my real retrocomputers to make the rounds, but this works really well if I'm on the go or in a hurry.

Here's another great #Amiga game I had totally overlooked: Apidya.

It looks like a good arcade conversion of some Japanese horizontal shoot 'em up reminiscent of R-Type, but it's actually an original Amiga game by a German game studio called Kaiko, perhaps better known for the Amiga version of Turrican 3.

Amiwin 2.0. X server for Amiga. Installed in the mid 1990s, still working great today.

My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.
