I don't know how I didn't even mention it before but I've been watching this month and I just finished season 3!

Hopefully I'll be ready to watch the movie next weekend.

Playing around with a new homepage layout.

This was always the intention going between my 2022-23 design but for reasons it never eventuated...

It feels good to have a graphical element right there in your face as the page loads again.

Anyway, it's here now, check it out https://flamedfury.com/

@flamed the little quote is barely visible, maybe give it a background and make the letters transparent?

Watching an episode of the new Doctor Who. Damn this feels more like the show that I fell in love with 19 years ago.

@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@dm I'm hearing a lot of mixed signals here so I guess I'll have to watch it myself

I boosted this until you said you weren't going to use three button navigation? I thought better of you :blobfoxangrylaugh:

@RL_Dane btw for what it's worth. You can double tap the Recents button to switch between the last two apps in a whim

I now find myself in agreement with @felimwhiteley. We are going to look back on this period in a few years and generative AI will be considered in the same light as blockchain and crypto are now.

This is more of a rant than I intended, but I still stand by it.


@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@j I watched the 4 episodes with Tennant back and had some hope it might go back to better days, sounds like it still a mess. RIP

I've gotten into reading again lately, turns out it's just as addicitng as a phone (I seem to have time management issues).
I startet posting on , however the webinterface is not fun to use on a small device.

Is there an app? I know of https://f-droid.org/packages/nl.privacydragon.bookwyrm/ , but that's just a webview.

@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@tobtobxx I just use the website to be honest, not the best but not that bad

I arrived like 40 minutes early at work so I may as well play with my in the meantime some

@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@theo yes I have a RetroAchievements account but I play on the move and while I could use my phone for hotspot I don't want to bother much with it, I wish they were offline even if they don't count for rankings, just to track them myself

@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@sirber they are just walking in line lol

@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@mitch yep, it's on the list!

I wanna play earthbound first tho, the list is... Quite long

Having grown up as became a “thing”, I splurged on one of the many handhelds for me and my son. He’s an avid gamer of the generation.

Impressed by this little device, the Miyoo Mini+, which can be had for $60 to $80. Emulators for a bunch of handhelds and consoles. There are more powerful / larger options and plenty of software mods you can do.

Now my son wants us to start a YT channel and “review” old games as if they just launched. 🙄

@kevinctofel it is such a fantastic little device! I've had mine for a couple of weeks and I love it so much :P

@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@kevinctofel also you should really install OnionOS on it! It's so much better than the default firmware!

Playing The Lost Crown on my :P

So far so good!

@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

I've played this for 9 hours, I'll admit I changed difficulty back to Normal, but it's still a rather challenging and rewarding game.

This might be the coolest way to play Apotris

@sabandijo @djlink @alex the R36S is actually the clone of a clone of a clone!

Not saying it's bad at all, just funny how these Chinese companies are shameless xD

But hey the price is great on that one

@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@djlink @simonoliver tiny best set is a good bunch of nicely formatted roms
