Decluttering has been a big improvement for my place. It's kicked off a lot of introspection as I question why I gathered all this junk over the years. So many meaningless dust collectors. I'm gonna try and be a lot more careful with purchasing decisions henceforth.

Early benchmarks coming up for the Ryzen 5700G look pretty good. Now I just have to wait for it to be released on its own rather than in OEM form.

How to Disappear Completely (the group from Poland) has been getting a lot of play from me of late.

Hey, fedi!

I'd like to write a blog/gemlog post about positive experiences from open source contributions. And by that I mean I want to hear your stories, and publish them as CC0 along with my own :)

Bring it on! (Boosts are of course welcome)

Just had 2 wisdom teeth removed. Next few days should be fun. Doc gave me Tylenol 3. I've only taken one and that codeine is hitting me like a truck. I think I'll try to stick to lighter stuff when ever possible. Opiodes are scary! :ablobcatcry:

Started trying out Mullvad VPN a little while ago, and so far it's pretty good!

Weird, Gemini has been getting me thinking about file sizes a lot more. I was thinking of putting links to a few images at the end of an article to play around with the idea of a small gallery.

However, even those were 100-200KB. It got me thinking, "That's a bit big, no?" and I wound up deciding against images. Maybe that will change in the future, but I really want to be careful with that stuff now.

Halfway through 1984, and Winston has quite the fatalistic streak in him. At first, I thought he just had a taste for rebellion, writing in that diary. Since then, though, he's made so many questionable decisions...

Been playing some Slime Rancher of late. It's been sitting in my Steam backlog for eons. Really enjoy it. The game is SO comfy. :ablobcatheartsqueeze:

Lots of good information on that page about the protocol and it's minimalist, anti-bloat philosophy, trying to make a space away from all the hideous corporate siloed nonsense on the web.

Also links to various browsers that can view Gemini capsules (the equivalent of a site / web page).

I enjoy using Lagrange personally, but have heard that a fair number of people also enjoy using Amfora as their browser.

Anyway, go check Gemini out. It's pretty great!

I've really been enjoying my time in Gemini space the past couple of months. Hopefully more people give it a go either just exploring it, or even making their own capsule.

The last thing I want is for it to just turn into a fad people were excited about, but ultimately abandon simply because they can't shake the habit of doing everything on the web.

If you're not familiar with it, here's the web address of the people behind it.

Only discovering the ambient music of Pete Namlook now. Wish I knew about him sooner, as I really like his stuff. It's a shame he passed away.

Still trying to figure out what profession I want to stick with in Guild Wars 2. Tried a melee and a ranged, but still not sure. Maybe a magic user or engineer next...

Consistent weather of sunshine and 20C has been nice. The darkness of winter seems to be firmly in the rearview mirror now. Hopefully, vaccinations will speed up in my neck of the woods so I can get on with my life.

I'm getting very tempted to build a budget PC with integrated graphics. I've realized that most of the games I play are either pixelated indie titles or came out at least 10 years ago. I just don't need that much oomph in my hardware anymore. It looks like 3400Gs run decent on Linux so I may give things a go this summer.

I've been quite enjoying the exploration aspects of Guild Wars 2. Also appreciate that actions are limited to 10 abilities at a time. Very refreshing compared to WoW and FFXIV where my hotbars were chalk full of them. =S

Nothing spells fun like an evening chalk full of ominous tummy gurgles!

Well, I guess people in the UK are going to have a particularly tedious, one note news cycle for the next while. =p

Feeling too lazy to take a shower, and quietly wishing their was a way to simply will myself into being clean and fresh.

So far, Mark and Linda have my favorite play styles, but it looks like I may have just unlocked Lucy, so I'm going to have to try out a fire mage next!
