still alive

Oct 17th, 2016 at 3:58 PM · wtf an update, crossposted: msree.livejournal.com, videogames
I'm alive, promise. I'm just snowed under because of health (both mine and not-mine).

Most of my gaming is done on vintage consoles, so my sole platinum trophy on PSN is a very recent achievement. Naturally, the game I 100%'d was a remake: Day of the Tentacle Remastered. DotT always comes with bonus Maniac Mansion for the finding and playing. I have yet to win MM but hey, new goal. At least now I've gotten further than the infamous microwave incident. I even managed to explode the house a couple of times! Yay!

My kitchen cabinet has tasted my blood. #fml At least the finger joint it skinned open has gotten less sensitive with time.

How is it three. It was just one, a few minutes ago. Can't be three already. Not allowed.

Better get off computer before the entire afternoon fritters away, wasted.

throat and forumware

Hi. My throat has a red stripe at the back of my mouth! It's scratchy and my head is heavy, but it doesn't hurt to swallow so I figure it could be worse.

I don't understand how forum software can exist in 2016 that doesn't generate RSS or any other feed format and doesn't even provide email subscriptions. I suppose they expect every user to bookmark the site and dutifully check in regularly to see what's new, and that is so ridiculously far from my own experience that I cannot fathom how anyone could imagine that being a good plan. I do know that email can be a twisty thing to wrangle, but I don't see how RSS and Atom are too hard for a software developer who knows what they're doing and gives at least one actual fuck.

There are a few things I should get to doing now, one of which is rest so I get over this throat thing. I think I will read another chapter of Ava's Demon before I decide which to try.
