Minecraft 1.14 is the Duke Nukem Forever of Minecraft updates

going to upgrade Geforce 7xx to Geforce 1050Ti on my "gaming" computer which used to run Windows 10. I've always used nvidia because nvidia has always worked, although it's using nouveau now and somehow miraculously working...

I installed Ubuntu on there yesterday with the intention of trying to run "Windows-only" games from Steam in Proton.

also: Blake Edwards clearly had binge-watched every Bugs Bunny cartoon ever before designing the Pink Panther. You can tell just by looking why they both work as well as they do.

justified fear: going into elevator with your keys and dropping them just as you exit, watching helplessly as the keys fall down that gap between the car and the building

Luckily, I haven't managed to actually drop my keys down the elevator shaft... yet...

Every time I watch Bugs Bunny, I always admired how, visually, he was a simple but very effective character.

It makes me happy to see that CWs enable others to freely talk about the things they want. I'd rather decide what to read than have some diseased corporate entity governed by greed deciding for me.

about 6 weeks using DuckDuckGo exclusively.

I've had to cheat and use !g like 5 times in this entire time.

No, I'm not going back to Google to search. DDG is definitely good enough now.

btw it still cracks me up that Chemical Plant's end boss is a game of Puyo Puyo. That never gets old.

Playing Sonic Mania Plus Encore Mode

Coming to the conclusion that Ray is this game's Cape Mario: all I can manage to do is make him dive. I'm clearly deficient since I see others make them fly up.

Just get Tails and Mighty and swap between those. For a game named "SONIC Mania," I play as any other char ;o)

good lord it appears that some automaton spewed all over local

I didn't realize how relatively inexpensive Uthernet II was, so I'm ordering 2 of them. One's going into the Power Tower Platinum IIe (in place of the Grappler with no printer attached), and the other in the Eastern Ass-Kicker IIgs

Diablo Immoral 

Mobile gaming has quickly deteriorated into a cynical money-grubbing grindy-ass wasteland. That doesn't excuse PC gamers' snobby attitudes toward those who play mobile games. They're insulted that mobile gamers are just as much "gamers" as PC gamers are.

Activision screwed up its execution of the Diablo Immortal reveal in every conceivable way. It's a mobile game that just happens to be named "Diablo," not a successor in the mainline.

Diablo Immoral 

Some like to say that Diablo fans are acting like entitled shits when it comes to mobile-only (and monetization-heavy as a result) NetEase Diablo ripoff Diablo Immortal.

It's easy to point and shout "whiny bastards," but it's not so easy this time to ignore Activision's shitty execution in this whole reveal.

Having a hard time giving Activision the benefit of any doubt here. They deserve all the backlash they're getting.

My "new" Dell Inspiron 13 has a plastic finish, so I saw fit to give it the sticker treatment. The Krusty Brand Seal of Approval says it all about the final product ;o)

Ironically, I had to remove the usual branding stickers from the palmrest. :oP

I think the lid came out pretty good. Almost no overlap, and room for smaller stickers.

really.. it's the culinary equivalent of ProDOS using blocks, but BASIC.SYSTEM reporting all volume sizes in sectors. :oP

LOOK, you stupid bastards... NO ONE ever splits the ramen block in half!

At least this is on the less-egregious end of piss-taking nutritional labels...

I've migrated:

So if you see some weirdo trying to follow you from there and it looks like me, it is! ;o)

mastodon.social is NOT "(all of) Mastodon"

It's just "mastodon.social". It's not "the main instance," or any special edge case that would make that square peg fit into a corporate, centralized rounded hole. It's an instance in Mastodon. A BIG one, sure...
