Thanks @xvilo for the cordial invitation and here I am! I get another chance at , not sure what else to write, as all I really want to do is reconnect with people and resume the conversations.

Rocket League is Dropping Support for #Linux - OMG! Ubuntu!

Seriously, this is lousy :( Guess I can uninstall the #game right away, the only game I've even been playing at all almost.

#opensource needs more stories like this! Great 👌

Thanks to a close friend (we were in school band together several decades ago) for this lovely gift! Now I can actually carry a (timpano? timpanum?) with me everywhere 😊

I started this instance because I wanted to make a cool place for people to meet and communicate. Thank you for your support, 🇧🇷 :blobheart:

I was thinking, this looks pretty cool, and is next to . So maybe at some point I can get to by train overnight? Not so fast... the distance between and (crossing 1 border) is 35% GREATER than the distance between Malmö and London (crossing 5 borders)! 🤷‍♀️

Nice minimalistic packaging. So small and light that when I picked it up at the post office I thought they forgot to pack the laptop inside 😆

Book recommendations? 

Travel tally for 2019: 17 countries, 7 of them twice.

2020 travels kick off next week with Poland, Czech republic, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Later probably couple trips to the US, and hopefully some trips to Asia as well (so I can take a side trip to see my family 😊)

Controversial question.... so I haven't really seen any of the #starwars movies.... if I wanted to watch them all.... what order should I watch them in?

Daily #vim trick: `:r! <cmd>` executes the command and inserts its output at the current cursor position.
useful for example if you need the contents of an environment variable in your buffer

While cleaning out some stuff, my broken Nokia umbrella attacked me. Now I don't feel sorry for tossing it in the trash :P

Got a report that the #Finnish translation of Mastodon had some inaccuracies (presumably machine-translated by someone), if anyone who speaks 🇫🇮 wants proofreader privileges on Crowdin, let me know


Now onto :

- : a cute strategy game, makes me wanna travel more than anything else

- : we played this word game in , kept it simple so I wasn't at too much of a disadvantage 😁

- : while I like the theme, this game is just ok. I could play it again if there's nothing else (i.e. not gonna happen)

- : one of my Christmas gifts, still in shrink wrap. Need to find some time to conquer the bunny world!

My activities happen mostly during the hols. Here's what I've been playing:

- : developed by a close friend's relative. Looks promising altho' I haven't gotten far

- : programming game using an assembly-esque lang. Fun!

- : there's something oddly satisfying about killing creepy crawlies by typing furiously. I can't aim & shoot to save my life but I'm a mean typist

- Hook, Lyne, and Sinkr: a bundle of puzzle games. I'm a sucker for such games. They relax me.
