What were the 70s...

“What were the 70s and early 80s really like?” They were dark, very contrasty, and grainy with lots of muted colours.

Nintendo Egg Game

Nintendo Egg Game

A blast from the past I was cleaning out some more things today and I found this gem. It’s from the early 80s and I must have spent countless hours with my brother and even my parents playing this little game. I looked online and they actually sell for quite a bit of money so I may actually end up selling it. I honestly have no intention of ever playing it again, but it was nice to see it again and yes, it does work....

Old 2011 MacBook Pro

Goodbye old MacBook Pro

Goodbye Old 2011 MacBook Pro. Yes, another “Goodbye” post from me - in so short a time. But this one is a must. I got this wonderful machine back in December 2011 and it’s been with me in Israel, Japan, the UK, and France. It was a workhorse for a very long time. But two and a half years ago I stopped using it in favour of the newer MacBook Pro I had for two years before getting my current one....

Happy Sleeping Polar Bear

Goodbye Morning Bears

Goodbye morning bears. I’ve been posting a picture of a polar bear every single morning on Facebook since something like 2014 or 2015, without fail. And, as much as I love polar bears, I think it’s time to say goodbye to this morning tradition. I started it because I wanted to see something happy first thing in the morning before anything else. But it has long since worn out that usefulness for me....

Added Comments

I’ve added comments. In the extremely unlikely occurrence that anyone would ever comment on my site, I’ve added comments from Disqus. It was one of those little todo tasks on one of my org-mode lists I just had to get done. So there. I did it.

QAnon Idiots and Espionage

I wonder how the QAnon idiots are justifying what’s happened. After all: Isn’t Trump supposed to be the “real” President? If he was really in charge…why would the FBI raid his “inner sanctum”? Why would he have a warrant for a search? What I’m really wondering is: How much information that counters their stupid, cretinous, “world view” does it take to snap them out of it? Will they ever actually snap out of it or will it just be a gradual process of moving on to the “next thing”?...

A Terrorist Party

The Republicans are a terrorist party. I want to be absolutely clear: I mean that the Republicans are a terrorist party in the exact same way as Hamas is a terrorist party in most democracies (including the United States). This is a political party which supported, and still supports, political violence to overthrow the democratically elected government of the United States - and a good chunk of which wants to install a theocratic government in its stead....

The FBI Raid on Trump

Don’t celebrate yet. With the recent FBI raid on Trump’s home, I’ve seen some people celebrating as if it’s all coming to a head. I think it’s worth stepping back for a moment to realize that we should be unconvinced of any progress to put Trump in jail until such time as he’s actually in jail. The fact is that I cannot, for the life of me, see Trump ever going to jail....

Skyrim and Emacs

I’m absolutely loving my MacBook Pro M1 Max What amazes me is how fast it is. Before, on the Intel MacBook Pro, I used to run Skyrim (and Fallout 4 as well as some other games) in native Windows mode. So, basically, it was like I was booting up a PC. But I didn’t have real access to my Mac Desktop or apps or anything else. The M1 is so fast that it’s running Skyrim in Parallels, at a faster FPS and far more stable than it was in native mode (I have no idea why but I’m not complaining)....
