On a roll during this pandemic. Already more blog posts written in the last two or three months than in all of either 2018 or 2019. :-)

RSS never disappeared, it just became a bit forgotten about as people got sucked into proprietary platforms. I have used many different RSS apps and services and have come back to hosting my own (apps.nextcloud.com/apps/news) but Feedly, Inoreader and Tiny Tiny RSS are all good alternatives.

This is the very first PC game that I bought for my very first PC (a 386DX-33). My interest in auto racing was literally built on top of this very game.

Suddently ran into a BSOD on my laptop. Then a scary cryptic storage message about my M.2 storage. About 30 min and a quick online chat later, and a replacement drive is arriving in a couple of days. Absolutely no muss or fuss. This is how you make a good impression. Hopefully it's just some bad sectors and bad luck.

The look I get after *he's* spent the whole day napping and being lazy and *I've* now decided to relax on the couch.

You gotta love it when someone puts the time and effort into providing titles and timestamp links on the description. 🥰
