Recently, I’ve been enjoying quite a few retro gaming videos on YouTube, and it’s helped to rekindle my desire to play older games, especially as I’m quite constricted currently in terms of my choice of gaming platforms.
For the last two years, I haven’t had much of a chance to go to the movie theatre, but if there is one film that is high on my list of movies to watch, it’s Dune by Denis Villeneuve.
Just a short post to say that I’ve managed to get my first vaccination shot today.
My age group isn’t yet officially able to get vaccinated, but most clinics are allowing walk-ins, so I decided to try my luck this morning.
Towards the start of this year I made the decision to leave Facebook and part of doing that meant I had to also move off of WhatsApp to Signal Messenger. A couple of months later and I’m back on WhatsApp. So what happened to my stance on privacy, and why am I using WhatsApp again?
Rocket League, the sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, has proven to be one of my favourite gaming experiences in a long time. I haven’t put so much time into an online multiplayer game since my Halo 3 days. So why is a game based around the concept of car soccer so addictive?
Part of the reason I haven’t been too productive recently in my writing has been that I’m working my way through my backlog of posts and importing them into WordPress. Previously they had all been saved as Markdown files for a Jekyll site I was using, and as part of the process, I’m also editing and reformatting them to fix plenty of spelling and grammar mistakes that slipped through the net the first time.
If you’ve been living in South Africa for any length of time, you’ll know that one of the downsides of living here is that we have frequent load-shedding due to our national electricity company being unable to provide us with enough power due to mismanagement and inadequate resources. But I’m not going to type out a post filled with complaints about the situation. Rather, I want to look at the positive aspects of being forced to live without electricity for several hours a day.
A few days ago I read the news that the television series Frasier would be returning to screens along with Rugrats. My first reaction wasn’t excitement, but rather resignation.
