oh hey this rented DVD doesn’t play on my PS4 but it’s playing on my PS3. i hope the whole thing plays

well crap the dvd seems pretty scratched up :(((

thanks to my local video rental store (yes we still have a few in town!), i discovered another time loop film i’m going to watch: 12:01. i don’t think i’ve even heard of this one

themoviedb.org/movie/17803-12-

programmers: duplicated effort is a sin, we should streamline processes as much as possible

also programmers: wtf i dont want to ride a bus, that shit is for people who are less good than me, its much better to sit in my car on the freeway for two hours while everyone else also drives their car

this might sound strange, but sometimes i wish i could hook up an external DVD drive to my Apple TV and play movies from it, if only so i wouldn’t have to switch inputs on my tv for dvds

second timeloop movie for groundhog day: RUN LOLA RUN

i hadn't rewatched this in ages. i forgot how much i love this film. it's over 20 years old now :O

YouTube’s algorithm sent me this gem of a channel this morning: Nybbles and Bytes. It’s one of those PBS-style retro computing shows like Explaining Computers except for two very important differences:

1. The focus is on low level software programming on retro computers

2. The host is a trans femme

This is literally new new favorite channel and I hope anyone interested gives her a subscription because support our family!

just rewatched SOURCE CODE as part of my plan to watch a bunch of groundhog-day-likes in feb 2, including EDGE OF TOMORROW, HAPPY DEATH DAY, RUN LOLA RUN, maybe others? but now i sleep (it’s 3am lol)

It's my birthday today please boost this toot

Holy crap y'all Streisand is an impressive piece of #FLOSS. github.com/StreisandEffect/str - If you're running Linux or Mac and can follow instructions *at all* then you can have a VPN set up in 20 minutes that you own and control, using any #cloud provider you like. Great for #privacy and also for evading annoying restrictions like JetBlue blocking everything other than ports 80/443 :) (Gonna tell me I can't SSH? Really? I think not :)

ok i really gotta start brainstorming for

... but there's also , already in progress, for small analog RPGs about "GIANT ROBOTS AND THE SAD PILOTS THAT DRIVE THEM" itch.io/jam/sad-mecha-game-jam

(and a corresponding digital jam itch.io/jam/emotional-digital- )

otoh i don't think i could make a tiny RPG of either form. plus i'm honestly not that familiar with the sad mech pilot trope 😛
