@lotus42 Literally only because the original post was here on Mastodon and not on Twitter. >.<

Update: four months later, this has finally come back to bite us in the ass. While we were busy up north preventing a dragon (long story), Fukkov's Irregulars have apparently been gaining traction and frequently raiding the farms around the city.

…oops?

@tewha I know I had the opportunity to try other Filipino foods at a couple of events in college, but honestly the only thing that sticks out in my memory was the flan. 😬

@tewha …okay, I’m intrigued about sweet spaghetti. O.o

@WAHa_06x36 please do not share candid photos of me on this website

@brianna Better experience than I had. I tried installing the DOS game Cosmo from GOG, and trying to play it immediately rendered my elementaryOS install unbootable. 😂

I think all the work I've done so far was worth it just for this one-star review.

@WAHa_06x36 Whoaaaaa! I've never heard of this formation before. Thanks for sharing!

Update: somehow rendered my elementary install permanently unbootable by installing and trying to play Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure.

I'm pretty sure it must have had to do with the graphics driver, but honestly if it's that easy to render Linux unbootable, I'm pretty unimpressed.

Also, definitely planning to stick with macOS for my daily drivers. I can spin up a new Mac to usability in under an hour. I spent the better part of today installing and reinstalling elementary to get it where I wanted it.

(Though admittedly a large part of that was due to EFI fuckery.)

Elementary OS has definitely improved in the last few years. Still, it has a pretty opinionated UI and I'm kind of tempted to give Xubuntu another shot for customizability.

@lotus42 A better man than I, then. I explicitly bought my Switch for Pokémon and Smash Bros, which didn't work out, since this generation of Smash just made me angry. But I bought BotW so my friends would stop nagging me and it saved the day.

That said, I really really REALLY really really wish Nintendo would release emulated versions of a bunch of N64 games—e.g., Pokémon Snap, Pokémon Stadium, Star Wars Rogue Squadron, etc—on Switch. That would seal the deal on a good investment for me.

@lotus42 Interesting! I've never played another Zelda game in my life, so I can't compare it there. I came to it from the Skyrim side of things. BotW made me super mad for the first five hours and then became one of the best games I've ever played. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The puzzles are extremely well balanced, exploration is rewarding, combat remains interesting through the late game.

If I have one complaint, it's still that weapons break too goddamn quickly—a complaint I knew I'd have going in.

@lotus42 I hear you, but consider my alternative proposal:

Buy a Switch and Breath of the Wild and abandon your heathen ways.

Is there a word for the feeling you get when you follow a random internet linux tutorial and one small but potentially significant thing doesn't behave as described, but you follow the rest of the tutorial anyway because you can always just reinstall if everything breaks, and at the end of the tutorial everything is working as expected but now you're just constantly waiting for that other shoe to drop?

I need a one-shot for D&D this weekend, so I think I'm going to shamelessly rip off The Cat in the Hat.
