My name is Robert, and I am new here, but not new to the #fediverse. 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.

@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 (https://novationmusic.com/en/launch/launchpad-mini) and a MPK Mini MK3 (https://www.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?
Or probably just out of touch.
Giving #ElementaryOS 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.
I live in a perpetual state of cognitive dissonance.
