Hi, I'm Aks. I like video games and making them. Programming and computers are fun and I also really like retro/vintage computing.

I'm here just for cool gadgets, Linux, FOSS, programming and computers.
So yeah looking for similar minded people to talk about stuff with.

PS. I'm not here for political talk or anything like that, just know that I support equal human rights of course.

PPS. Oh and if i use tags like it's just for crossposting!

i would compare it to some people who like modding games and they're like "okay i spent hours to mod this now i can finally play"

it's sort of similar feeling, except you "mod" your OS to play the game.

i enjoy both lol

also people are like "that sounds very inconvenient" when i tell them the tricks i do to make some games work (most work fine!)

idk how to explain it better but i enjoy tinkering and the tiny bit of inconvenience reminds me of my DOS era PC that had always something to tinker with to get better graphics or fps.
I loved doing that.

It's FUN to me.

i gotta say it again because fuck

changing to kubuntu as my main daily driver OS has been the best thing i've done in ages

legit boosted my mental health, i got less anxiety over updates now

its just so NICE

If the enemy talks about you, no matter if good or bad, you know they are scared.

I only see one way how this ends and gets settled .. with a lawsuit.

Richard Stallman invented free software because printers were shitty. Now we have free software that run on rockets, but the printers are still shitty.

So I challenged myself to do every day in november.

I skipped only 8 days of all 30, so I think I did pretty well. Anything that counted towards the project counted one day of gamedev.

Mostly I skipped because I was way too tired or just legit wanted to do something else. I'm glad how much the project advanced though!

I think I am going to keep this up, but be less harsh on myself if I skip some days. For me gamedev is a hobby (for now) so I wont work myself to ground lol.
