Lumo's £1.99 on Switch atm.

I've always wanted to make a 1.99 game. :D

Videogame themed shoeshop called Dark Soles.

Just discovered Re-Volt GL, a cross-platform rewrite / port of Re-Volt. Runs beautifully with 60FPS on 4k, on my lousy iGPU.

Wasted so many glorious hours with this game in the summer of '99 😆

GOT A SOUL TATTOO. TATTOO RIGHT ON MY SOUL. NOW WHENEVER I GET MELANCHOLY I TURN INTO A GIANT ANCHOR

@Middaparka yeah, I've asked them to look at it again, and provided a ream of links proving that I made it. See what they say. I would guess it'll be fine, just made me laugh :D

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.

UK poltics 

I was going to write something _deeply profound_ about living in the current UK political system being a bit like being Bruce Dern's character in Silent Running, but it doesn't really make sense, still it was a pretty good film for the time so there you go I guess yup.

Retrospecs 2.10 is now available in the App Store.

In addition to a slew of bug fixes, this version also adds a basic Apple ][ Hi-Res mode.

Hope you all enjoy. \o/

‪Don’t want to spoil anyone’s Game of Thrones viewing, but the bit where Bo and Duke jump the General Lee over the creek is just absurd.‬

UK politics 

I'm definitely no fan of his politics, but it's certainly a refreshingly honest approach…

If I had the necessary coinage, I'd open an Old Programmers Rest Home, where we could talk about past glories before retiring for another restless night of interrupted sleep.

You'd have to be at least thirty-five and hence truly over the hill to be old enough for admittance.
