(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 ✨

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

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...

Every time someone trashes Electron apps for stability reasons I think of the multiple ways some native apps on my Mac throw beachballs for no reason.

For real, the new stuff looks dope but it's a bit weird to see Apple having to do that thing where they hype up a carrier, as if they actually needed that in 2020

people who study economics either end up communist or libertarian losers who play with the stock market for fun. there is no in between.

COVID19 

Be careful, people. It's still out there. Ask a doctor at the slighted hint, get tested as soon as you can. Only early testing and quarantine can stop this, and there are weakened people who count on us all to stay alive

COVID19 

My experience of the pandemic so far:
- first five months in full remote work: no problem at all
- a month of partial office work: results are in, I'm infected

Yay

Now that I think about it... Mewtwo Backup really should be Blissey, since it's like another Chansey...

I need to find a better name for "Mewtwo Backup" and I have yet to name my iPhone but it's a start and it looks cute so it's all that matters to me.

- Mewtwo is my desktop

I (finally) managed to settle on a naming scheme for (almost) all my drivers and devices and I did the next logical thing: apply icons and customize neofetch on all of them.
