I would like to (dis)prove something my transphobic father said.
#transgender people, did you choose a name that’s a diminutive of or sounds like your deadname?
Preferably boost for a larger sample size.
Funny old day yesterday - another one of those times where I’ve realised that the capabilities I currently have mean that there’s no point continuing to pursue a hobby I’ve always been interested in.
It’s frustrating to have to give up on things due to a lack of energy and physical flexibility, but I suspect it’s better just to let go rather than pick another fight I can only loose.
As always, it could be a lot worse, but it’s still frustrating.
Calling game researchers!
I've got an 8+ terabyte collection of old gaming and computer magazines from around the world (it's my goal to catch 'em all), and I've built my own indexer. Roughly half have been indexed — 4 million pages — including a ton of material that can't be found on the Internet Archive.
Whether it's an academic paper or a YouTube video, I'm happy to help with your project.
Sick of people calling everything in crypto a Ponzi scheme. Some crypto projects are pump and dump schemes, while others are pyramid schemes. Others are just standard issue fraud. Others are just middlemen skimming of the top. Stop glossing over the diversity in the industry.
In happier news, I’m told my article about the ZX Spectrum did pretty well over the weekend: https://www.stuff.tv/features/random-access-memories-the-zx-spectrum-at-40-and-six-of-the-best-speccy-games/
I did get a telling off by some folks for omitting Manic Miner from my best-games list though. (I went for Deathchase, Jetpac, Chase HQ, Lords of Midnight, Head Over Heels and Skool Daze.)
What would you have included?
