I'm working on a new game and sometimes I'll post screenshots of the evolving world map here.

What's the cheapest way to pick up a phone with a notch while I'm in SF? I thought I'd be able to find a second-hand iPhone X, but the prices I'm seeing are as much as or more than a new iPhone XR.

What's the best way to get a bash shell on Windows? I'm trying Windows Subsystem for Linux but it has some annoyances. Before I was using babun, but that was also not perfect.

Spent today playing Obra Dinn. Neat, but anticlimactic ending - I think you won't be missing much if you just stop at whatever point the deductions feel like too much work.

Advice needed: what are some things I might forget to back up/copy to my new computer before I wipe and recycle my old laptop?
