I installed Civ V on my M1 MacBook Air last night just to see how it ran and it ran so well I played it until like 1am lmao, my old Intel MacBook Pro couldn’t manage a stable frame rate 🤷🏻‍♀️

maybe I’m missing something but is there a legal or logistical reason the USPS has to spend a bunch of its seemingly limited budget R&Ding a new van through some military contractor rather than buying some fucking ford transits or whatever?

really hoping that x86-on-ARM64 emulation gets better, because oof it is kind of rough at the moment

now I just need a reliable way to run an x86 VM on it with access to a USB device and I’ll be sorted...

Rosalina%’d Mario 3D World with @mistydemeo and @MOOMANiBE tonight, I enjoyed the game overall but oh boy is it designed to make you inadvertently grief each other CONSTANTLY in co-op, it’s honestly the worst part

and like, for some reason Apple still have the UDF driver living in the kernel? so this is a hard reboot situation lmao

“Splatoon concert Blu-ray crashes my computer’s UDF driver if I play it in VLC” is a fun new sentence

absolutely astounded to discover that NeoPlanet, that weird Windows browser with all the skins from the late 90s (including Austin Powers, natch), was partnered for advertising with, of all things, a SoftBank subsidiary web.archive.org/web/1998020101 nytimes.com/1997/09/15/busines
