puzzled by Valve deciding to update their “game news” pages to be an overlay requiring an RTX 2080 Super or better to render at more than 5fps

patch for polycule graph software to add support for showing your coronavirus bubble

I just want to solemnly swear that I will never work for a company which creates a button labeled “see less often” on an item the user didn’t ask to see

your MobyGames profile allows you to share your contact details for no fewer than three messaging services which have been completely offline for somewhere between two and seven years 😂

any Canadians have suggestions for places to buy random hobbyist electronics stuff like panel mount jacks or packs of resistors or the like which aren’t amazon or the big few multinationals?

wait wait wait hold on is THIS why the rear of PAL releases of Gran Turismo 2 make the claim that the game “smells real” ??? like it literally originally did????? (image from mobygames.com/game/playstation) twitter.com/zhugeex/status/117

I don’t really have anything interesting to say about their latest game but I think they should just make a sequel to Jak X next

just replaced the very dead clock battery from 1999 in my 🌀Dreamcast with a nice, fresh ML2032 in a socketed holder

feeling pretty happy with the result! ✌🏼💜✨

thinking about jacking in to the matrix to listen to neo’s minidisc collection

you can, of course, fit a CR2032 in here but given it (and many consoles’ clocks) wants to charge the battery that’s not a great idea; the CR formulation is not rechargeable!

friends shouldn’t let friends’ consoles unwittingly attempt to charge a CR2032 💜
