(re)introduction 

Been here for a while but I've always been lazy and never did this so here we go:

I'm Damien (he/him), from France, living in California, I post about:
- computers
- nerd/weeb shit
- music
- meta stuff
- programming
- politics sometimes (fuck nazis and terfs)
- video games
- i probably forgot some other things b/c it's late and stuff

And that's mostly it ✨

Tech people: "We can fight capitalism, and get a more humane society."

Also tech people: "Well, Chromium won, let's forget Firefox, we can't take the web back, let's move to something else."

Started playing Doom Eternal. My ass is getting kicked: love it.

finally getting a soldering iron a few months ago was both a blessing and a curse because i was putting any modding attempt aside because i didn't have one.

now that i have one, all bets are off and i only have my (weak) willpower preventing me from engaging into even more nerdy bullshit

Me, in my nerdy bullshit: buys the overpriced fpga game boy from Analogue that won't ship until next year so I dont have to mod my old GBAs with an IPS display

Also me, right now: FUCK i want to mod my old GBAs with an IPS display and a flashcart ton play PokΓ©mon Silver on them, damnit

Also wow i knew I'd like the flat sides but... i LOVE them. I really missed flat-sides-iPhone 😍

Also wtf the back feels so smooth. I know it's not technically glass but it surely doesn't feel like it, in a good way.

Fuck, the iPhone 12 Pro's Pacific Blue looks SICK.

I don't have any good pics right now because of course now i'm waiting on the thing to activate/setup so you'll have to take my word for it.

nvm, Chrome and Firefox do this too. Serves me right for console.logging objects.

I guess i never notice because I don't always try to debug something against a changing variable on the window πŸ€•

Really wish Safari wasn't doing this thing where, if you do `console.log(window.fooBar)`, the Console tab will show an _updated_ version of `fooBar` when unfolding the object in the console.

Very confusing and I lost 20mn figuring why I was confused by basic maths.

Speaking of which, usually I get a few messages from said randos a year, this year has been fairly quiet so far.

Show thread

Thinking about the Minecraft requiring a Microsoft account thing and, why I get why it sucks, a part of me hopes that will deter randos from cold messaging me on the internet because they found out I got the M*necon 2012 cape and want to buy my account or whatever the heck.

You ever think about how good the Super Mario 64 soundtrack is

I randomly started re-playing Sonic Adventure 2 on PC yesterday night and:

- oof the camera and controls are clunky af oof
- wtf the Chao Lobby background music goes way harder than it should be??? youtube.com/watch?v=lcxNwdZlQT

should i fuck around and upgrade my hackintosh to big sur beta...
