Little-known fact: "Coca-Cola" and "Pepsi" are plural. If you have only one, it's a Cocum-Colum or a Pepsus.

(What about "Coke"? It's actually the Greek form of the word, and is singular. The plural is Cokai. "Pepsus" is a neologism in Latin and has no Greek equivalent.)

It's so nice when a button, a switch, a knob is solidly made and enjoyable to manipulate. I think most people enjoy simple tactile pleasures like this, even if they don't consciously notice, but the past decade or so has been a tactile desert of touchscreens, dodgy laptop keyboards, and mushy unresponsive TV remote buttons.
How do we get a tactile renaissance going?

Happy New Year! My 2018 has started with attempting to go for a walk and getting rained on. I had a laugh and dry clothes were available so it wasn't a bad beginning.

I feel my life would be undiminished if I never again heard any song featuring a snowman.

this is quite possibly the best joke I've ever seen

I've been in murky dungeons for ages and then I come out to a brightly-lit dockside with trappings of civilisation, the change of atmosphere is so refreshing... and then a bit later I'm in a gilded temple and I'm fighting... curtains, apparently? This is great.

is so good at making me want to go just that little bit further and then suddenly I've accidentally been playing for five hours. It must be something about the maps.

A friend invited me back to today and wow, it has changed since last time I played. Especially in the ten-day league. I don't know what half these rifts and breaches are.

Ahhhahah, there are hotkeys here, I was trying to open my inventory on the other monitor. But that was a post that fully deserved inadvertent boosting.

It looks like today is the day to sign up to Mastodon, and I had insomnia so I did some reading, and it looks like I did well by not ending up on .social :)
