Pinned toot

My name is Robert, and I am new here, but not new to the . I use to run boardgames.social, but decided to shut it down to streamline my life a bit.

I desire for technology to embody hope and inspiration, not slavery and capitalism.

In 1984, when my dad plugged in the c64 to the Zenith television set, my imagination was captured. Has been ever since.

Thanks for letting me find a new home here.

selfie, eye-contact 

Pixel 5 takes pretty great photos.

I author many toots, only to delete them and not post them. Many of them in the form of replies. I am very conscience of how they might be received. So then I just disengage. 🤷🏼‍♂️

curse words; windows 

I just blew away my linux install and intalled Windows on my machine; tired of fucking with Linux and just want to get shit done. 😩

As someone that pays his bills with “cloud technology”, I find this extremely funny.

I feel asleep in the first 30 minutes of Tenet and then I woke up and decided to not finish the movie. I don’t feel bad about it either.

I have been playing on (runs great and looks great.) However, I don't think I like the game. :/

Sorry, I was out for lunch.

@FredBednarski I thought you meant hex&counters which is what we used to have in the old days.♥ Rounding the corners with nail clippers like God intended.

I miss cardboard in board games.

Many contemporary games use plastic miniatures as they main selling point. This makes the games expensive (it is not uncommon for a game to cost over $100!) and don't add much to my experience.

Not to mention that bunch of this plastic will end up in a landfill.

Give me a game with good art design and only cardboard components over the mountain of plastic any day.

We gave my son a launch pad (novationmusic.com/en/launch/la) and a MPK Mini MK3 (akaipro.com/mpk-mini-mk3) I loaded up a machine wtih Ubuntu Studio thinking that it would have plenty to use and play with in terms of software for those devices. Alas, I ended up having to put Windows back on the machine to get Ableton working for him (it's what he is used to) and I am sad that I couldn't find any great resource on getting them working with Linux; anyone got any links that might help us?

I just had to use Urban Dictionary to find out what Zalgo is... Damn, I am old.

Giving another spin. It's very clean. Hard to change the muscle memory of some my the keyboard shortcuts, but I will going for a bit.

New addition to the 2020 WTF List: AC/DC has a new album.

And remember kids, if anyone tells you to implement DRM, tracking software, anti-patterns, gambling apps disguised as social media, and so on - you tell them to "FUCK OFF". If you get fired over it (and you might not, for the record), give me a call and we'll help you find somewhere better.

I cannot look at a goat with horns and not think of Satan.

Deleted Twitter accounts and Linkedin as well. This is my last social media account.
