Just a short trip through my strange computer based quests.

A quick trip to the gaming world, and a little fastmail.

I haven't been posting in a bit, because I've been playing control It's a fantastic game, a lot of fun to play, and very unsettling. I had to install windows just to play it, but scp being one of my favorite things, it needed to be done. I got quite far in, enjoying it every step of the way, and then windows randomly deleted my savegame.

I'll just figure out how to get it working on Linux if I want back in I guess.

In other news, I opted to switch my email over to fastmail. I use this site domain as my main email, so it was pretty easy to just chuck the domain over. No offense to protonmail, I love the service and the crew over their are great... But I want to just use IMAP without a weird beta bridge setup that works some of the time. So far so good! It was incredibly easy to setup, the app password setup means I can revoke compromised passwords easily... I love it.

A quick bit on games.

This shouldn't be a long post. I've not been up to much lately. I rethemed my computer totally, tried out KDE, and otherwise did the things i always do. However, I would like to mention a couple of games.

First off, I found a game posted on reddit by the name wolfentext3d. It's a work of genius. Basically the whole of wolfenstein3d, the original one that started it all... Only in the terminal. Made in ascii. If you're into such things, it seems to be pretty fun it's easy to install and I suggest you go give it a try for the heck of it.

Secondly, I've been playing through Danganronpa. I've avoided playing it for a while, not for any good reason, I just haven't had time to sit down and dedicate myself to a long form story based game like this... I've not gotten too too far, chapter 3 I think, but it is really good. No spoilers, but the hints that SOMETHING is up are tantalizing. I hope the reveal is worth it.
