First Impressions Wearing an Apple Watch

apple apple-watch smart-watch tech
After getting a ton of gift cards for Christmas, I bought an Apple Watch SE since it was on sale. I’ve only had it on for a few days and I’m already enjoying it, although I’m struggling to feel like I’m utilizing it to its fullest potential. I thought I’d post about my feelings using it so far. This isn’t my first smartwatch, I originally wore a Pebble 2 for a year or two before it physically fell apart (well after the company went defunct). Read more...

A Reading "Challenge"

I want to read more It’s one of those things where I enjoy it, but can’t get started often (thanks ADHD). I go in spells of reading all the time, then not reading at all for several months, then getting back into it. I also have a habit of getting a library card, using it once, returning the book, losing the card, and forgetting about it. Times have changed with that at least. Read more...

Random Thoughts

For those who haven’t seen my Gopher posts before (RIP), I used to do a “Random Thoughts” post when I didn’t have any ideas. It’s usually a paragraph or two on a random thing on my mind, with no rhyme or reason to the post as a whole. Here I am, out of ideas again, and I really just want to put stuff down, so why not bring that back. Read more...

Status Update

I haven’t posted much recently, so I thought I’d make a status update of sorts. I’ve been so focused on coursework, getting addicted to Destiny 2, and migrating to Windows 11 as a daily driver (I know, the heresy) that I forgot I even hosted things at home. Administrative Stuff Since I last posted, I temporarily removed the public repository from tildegit. While it’s a good place, they have rules about sensitive content, and since I wrote that one definitely kink story before, I took it down to comply with those rules preemptively. Read more...

Content warnings: although not explicitly sex related, alludes to kinks including but not limited to: transformation, inflation/inflatables, pregnancy. The story is directed as if it’s a conversation to the reader. This is a very esoteric idea I just couldn’t get out of my mind. Reader’s discretion is advised. It was an unforgettable day, no matter how routine it started. Getting out of bed, taking a shower, making sure I’m all polished up and ready for the day. Read more...

On Physical Currency: Use your dang cash!

There are a lot of misconceptions about physical US currency that have existed as long as I’ve been alive. Half Dollars are seen as a rare artifact of the distant past. Every couple years there’s a story about someone getting arrested for paying with a $2 bill by officers and cashiers who don’t know they are still being actively produced and circulated. In 2005, a man was arrested and spent time in county jail for using a $2 at a Best Buy. Read more...

Intel Wifi Drivers: Finally, a bodge!

bugs intel iwlwifi linux networking wireless
A few weeks ago I did a post about the crazy beacon timings bug with Intel’s wireless drivers on Linux, and tried a few more things. I’m pleased to say I no longer have frequent disconnects (which got a lot worse on linux513), however there is the caveat that I no longer have a full speed 802.11ac connection. As for a complete fix, one hasn’t been found yet, and the thread has devolved into people’s vacation auto-reply emails Read more...

Commander's Log: May 25, 3307

elite in-universe
I made it to the Herbig Ae/Be star in the Aucopp QD-B E0 system on schedule today. It was a sight to behold, a brilliant yellow with a mass 4.6 times that of Sol, yet only 1/8th the radius. The only thing else in the system is a thin belt of asteroids, so I have to leave the ship adrift for tonight. I don’t want to keep jumping around finding a suitable planet to land on and “set up camp” if you could call it that. Read more...

I thought I’d try keeping a log for myself. Sure, Universal Cartographics gets to go deep into all the scans I make along the way, but I’d like to keep some of the memories from out in the black in a way that isn’t a giant database of numbers and statistics. I started a bit late for this expedition, I set off two days ago galactic standard time to fill in some more entries in my codex, confirming reports of some different phenomena in the Spur.

[X-POST] Elite Dangerous: Odyssey First Impressions

elite gaming review
Note: This was originally posted on Mastodon at Vulpine Club and has been reformatted and edited for posting here. Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Putting aside the horrible performance issues, this DLC quite possibly broke the game completely. The new on foot gameplay elements would be great if it weren’t for the complete destruction of the galaxy. The new planetary engine changed all of the beautiful colors of the planets we all know and love (those reds and pinks and icy worlds) into just a generic moon grey. Read more...
