"How does one hate a country, or love one? Tibe talks about it; I lack the trick of it. I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plowland in the hills; but what is the sense of giving a boundary to all that, of giving it a name and ceasing to love where the name ceases to apply?"

— The Left Hand of Darkness

Richarlison has had zero rest all summer and he’s been our best player today. It’s crazy to think that he won an Olympic gold medal last week and now he’s inspired us to a comeback today

I’m now on too! At the moment, it’s just a mirror of my blog, but I plan to add some original content there too.

Hey everyone, Bandcamp will be waiving it's cut of profits on the first Friday of every month for the rest of 2021: arstechnica.com/gaming/2021/08

A few months ago I posted about wanting to leave Apple Podcasts because I was worried about the future of podcasts under Apple, Spotify and the others. After trying a few alternatives, I quickly settled on Pocket Casts and I have no complaints about it after a few months of use.

Here’s another one of my football updates. But the twist this time is that I had one rubbish match and one match where I hardly remember anything.
Please don’t let your decision to not read this be based on the above.

My dad's back in lockdown and he wanted to do this today. Let me just say that helping him install a Linux distribution on a video call was a painful experience. Nothing wrong with the installation process, he just had to install it twice because the password he chose wasn’t working (he tells me it was because he was resting his keyboard on its own cable and it was blocking one particular letter)

My first impressions of the official Mastodon app is that I still prefer Metatext. It’s probably a bit ridiculous but my main problem is that the font is too big. I’m going to be trying it for the next week or so to give it a fair chance

I installed Linux (Zorin OS) on my dad's computer about 18 months ago and he’s just told me on the phone that he wants to help me install it on another computer this weekend

I'm really pleased that we've got young black sportsmen like Mings willing to stand up to racist politicians and use their platform to say what a lot of us are thinking.

First time looking online this morning... Seems like a game of sports balls has brought out the worst in a bunch of english people.

Kicking the ball not as good as other people can kick the ball is sad indeed but nothing to be massively violent or racist about.

Devastated. We go again at the World Cup next year
