August 8

Over the years...


After dinner, I’ve got a date with a slice of pie, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a glass of Maker’s Mark on the rocks. 🥧🍨🥃


Had a bunch of fruit to use so I baked a pie. Blackberries, blueberries, plums, strawberries, apples, and black cherries. Smells good! Hopefully it tastes good :)

Played Sonic Mania

Played on the Nintendo Switch.

Played for 30 minutes.


It was finally time to upgrade my Synology NAS, a four bay DS415+. I just ordered a five bay DS1019+, which is faster, more expandable, and has hardware acceleration for h.264 and HEVC. Anyone want to buy my old unit? It’s great, I have just outgrown it!


I've got two tickets to the Hollywood Bowl tonight to see Empire Strikes Back live in concert with the LA Phil. My son bailed on me. Who wants to join me?!


After a lot of research, I think I may be investing in a GPD XD Plus for my portable retro-gaming device. It’ll be an adventure into Android land for me, but it should be fun.


That said, there has never been a better time to join the and Micro.blog has made it easier than ever before. I can’t recommend it enough.


Seeing a lot of my Twitter connections considering abandoning the platform. I’m getting close to that myself. It’s becoming abundantly clear that Twitter’s values don’t align with mine.


I’ve suddenly got the urge to build a retro-gaming handheld. The only kit I’ve found that comes close to what I want is the Freeplay CM3, but it has no analog sticks. Hmm... what to do?


This is my new favorite thought experiment.
