Well it's about fucking time.
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. :-)
Umm... I'm liking this remote working thing:
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 (https://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.
You gotta love it when someone puts the time and effort into providing titles and timestamp links on the description. 🥰
