Beastars T10 is out in France!

And I'm very far away from my bookstore.

Spent an hour setting up my new Samsung phone. The amount of shitty default apps I had to replace by decent ones is impressive.

I don't even understand why they bother with making their own sms, calendar, keyboard, and so on.

I'm gonna get an android phone next week, because I'm tired of not having a private phone, and everything has been on my work iPhone for the last 4 years, including clients calls on bank holidays and week-ends.

So I just wanted to ask, what are some good fediverse clients on Android at the moment? Capacity to type an alt text to posted images is a must.


Looking for 2 players for an upcoming campaign of Burning Wheel.

We'll try to start offline, next September, in Lyon, France.

We'll play in French. No purchase necessary, except about 10 d6s.

If by any chance you read this and are interested, PM me.

This is getting me excited to play some Hyper Light Drifter RPG, maybe next year.

The question is, how do you translate the aesthetics of the video game in tabletop form?

Upgraded for fedora 31 to fedora 32, without a hitch.

FOSS brotherhood intensifies.

After months of seeing the Neofeud guy pushing his game around here, I took the plunge yesterday and it's actually a pretty good point and click game with a strong social commentary aspect.
I dig it.

Randomly delighted by the design and presentation of the Matra & Hachette Ordinateur Alice series of home computers from the mid 1980s.

Along with Melissa Joan Hart's performance in Clarissa Explains It All, this solidified my belief that this is what the typical computer programmer looked like.

Oh hey, there's a Hyper Light Drifter Table Top RPG in the works (already funded on Kickstarter).
It has a strong visual and audio identity from the video game, and its mechanics and themes of exploration of ancient tech seem to borrow from Numenera, which is a good thing.
(Free playtest doc there)

I'm tempted to pre-order it, but worried that the more I purchase RPG in advance this way, the less I support my local RPG store which is struggling at the moment.

OK so I spend between 30 to 90 minutes per day in google meet team calls where I have little to say. What SNES or GBA game should I run in the meantime (all I have is my laptop and a SNES shaped USB controller).

Almost done with Pokémon Emerald, and considering Mother 3, but the rhythm tapping during battles is unmanageable on this set up as frame rate varies wildly with video chat on the second screen.

Very happy with the switch to Fedora with Kde Plasma as my daily driver. Plasma has really come a long way. Yes I'm a FOSS bro, bear with me.

Torn between busy work and Pokémon Emerald on emu.

uspol - covid 

A country with 5% of the world's population will end up with half of the global death toll.

And its leader will claim victory and lament how the unfair media isn't giving him credit, even though it's way better than the projections where nobody did absolutely anything to stop the virus.

Is changing career path into programming something realistic for a 39 yo who's done business development for most of his adult life but is an armchair python programmer?

Asking for me…

Beat Pokemon Platinum with a team entirely from my SoulSilver cart.

Dratini > Dragonite
Eevee > Espeon
Oddish > Bellossom
Murkrow > Honchkrow
Vulpix > Ninetales

At first I got really annoyed because even though some were around lvl 12, they wouldn't obey me until after the second gym.

Then it was smooth. Dratini and Dragonair were really underwhelming, but Dragonite made up for it in the end.

Having 6 Pokémon getting boosted xp from trade was great.

Sinnoh is HM Hell though…

Preparing for a 1 or maybe 2 months stay at my inlaw's.
Great for the kids because of the space.

But I should really go there with no video games in my back pocket in order to be productive and social in these future trying times.

It's going to be like a rehab.

Can’t believe I let Mario Maker 2 sit unplayed on my Switch since launch.

It’s amazing!

First day of not being under strict stay at home order in Lyon, France.

I'm still going work from home until at least September, I suppose.
