Miso I've had lots of fun exploring Gemini - is anyone active in there? Let me know your about your site if so :)
🎲 James York what is this Gemini of which you speak?
✨ Jacoby Here you go friend! txti.es/vwrpg
🎲 James York Sorry for the late reply. Didn't check in here recently. Yes, as said, this really is awesome <3
✨ Jacoby Whoa! You just pressed all my buttons at the same time. I teach. I play games. I teach games. And they are always set to a vaporwave soundtrack too. Can send my Spotify playlist links if interested.
🎲 James York haha, that's great to hear! For sure, please send it over :)
Miso Absolutely thrilled of my new thinkpad. It's a big P53. Linux noob but I went with fedora. It's very slick right now. The transition from macos isn't so bad! Any tips?
🎲 James York nice! I was so close to not buying a new macbook this year. Was looking at the surface pro, but... inevitably, I bought a macbook instead haha. Can't break out of the mac ecosphere!
💩 Niklas What's your setup for personal backups? I've just started using restic on an old HDD I found, still looking for a good (cheap) SSD to buy. I think I should use at least two hard drives for backups, maybe even do some fancy RAID... By the way, this post serves as a REMINDER TO DO YOUR BACKUPS!
🎲 James York Nextcloud on a private server in my office
🎲 James York Is it hotter than normal where you are in the world, too?
🗨️ Fui I'm no climate change denier, but no. Why? Because I live in a sub-tropical region, where it's hot all year. The variation on temperature is minimal. Now, people here tell me the weather patterns are different, with the rainy season being now much more unpredictable. I'm on the NE part of Brazil, btw.
💻 Kernel Last two years broke a lot of weather records... It's really warm now but luckily not much worse than before.
🧉 Martin Here in north UK, it most certainly is. It's not even raining.
🗨️ Fui I'm one foot in, one out. I like it, I like the direction where is headed, but... I'm managing my ZK well enough with VSCode only -- at least for now. So I basically just use obsidian to check the graph view.
🎲 James York Good to know! I haven't used VSCode, so obsidian is nice and lightweight for me. It's good to see the connection between papers that I read.
🎲 James York Starting to arrange my thoughts with obsidian.md. Any other users on here? Really liking it so far (a few weeks in, using it to store notes on academic papers that I read, plan projects and reflect on life in journal entries).

Miso Have you made any game with pico-8? Share them if you did!
Miso That's a really interesting read!
🎲 James York Thanks! It was fun to write too :)
🎲 James York On teaching (with games) and vaporwave. Essentially: slow down teaching, repeat things, don't try and reinvent the wheel, work with existing pedagogy and remix it! llpjournal.org/202...
Miso That's a really interesting read!

🎲 James York Any Volvo v40 owners on here? Thinking of getting a d4...
🥨 Shruthi seems like the new design recognizes this, emphasizing groups and events over newsfeeds. if those features are useful to you, then why quit at all? maybe download the newsfeed blocker if you find yourself accidentally 'doomscrolling' after logging on to check events
🎲 James York I've used the blocker for a number of years now. Do not miss the newsfeed at all.
Xy play a sad one, joe.. youtube.com/watch?...
🧿 Andrea What's your favorite character
🎲 James York Ooooh, good question. Apart from Chrono I think Frog, just for the way he talks and his sad story.
🧿 Andrea Envious! Played it many years ago, it's a real gem. What system are you playing it on?
🎲 James York I'm playing it on openemu.org which is a superb multiplatform emulator. We're nearly finished now I think. Getting quite epic..!
