Hello! I've decided to move to a single-user instance out in the fediverse asteroid belt. I'll be keeping my old account @sandrockcstm@elekk.xyz, but I think I like the idea of my own quiet little corner on the fediverse.

If you'd like to follow me you can find me here now. If you've blocked or muted me in the past, this is the one you'll want to mute or block now.

They very slightly changed the UI in the Android version of Discord and it's absolutely ruining my day.

Why would they do this to me, what did I ever do to them??

Come on everyone, sing along~ 

Well

Someone should let Jacksepticeye know that they make like 15 kinds of ointment that might help him out.

Lol, Trump's hotel/home got raided by the FBI.

Imagine Dragons.

Like just... can you even?

Just try and fathom the concept.

I mean, wow.

The absolute best feeling is when a customer submits a ticket asking how to do something, then responds 15 minutes later with "never mind I figured it out."

Can't recommend it enough.

Anyone else find it weird that basically every culture, regardless of region or ancestral descent, has hats or head coverings? And that they all have unique presentations and shapes?

We got a fedi-habberdasher that could speak to this? Why is hats?

Me: Think I'm going to beat Hollow Knight again, but not 100% it this time.

Me after getting 97% completion: Yes, this is exactly what I meant. All according to plan.

Stolen from a comment section:

I heard the CEO of Ikea was elected President of Sweden.

He's still putting his cabinet together.

Police, Amazon, Surveillance 

It turns out Ring is worse than we thought. If you have a Ring system, police can go to a website and fill out a form, and Amazon will grant access without review, due process, or a warrant. We knew they were collaborating in some form, but we didn't know today it was this turn-key.

This applies to your neighbors too, unfortunately. We are already living in a surveillance dystopia.

I can't tell if someone thought people wanted this or if they came up with some new physics programming and tried to ham-fist it into a feature that players "get" (read: must) use in the new zones.

I just don't get it.

So apparently the next WoW expansion has some sort of mechanic called "Dragon Riding," and as someone that has played on and off (and at one point was a Try-Hard raider) I find this concept incredibly confusing. Because we've been riding dragons since the first expansion.

From what I can tell, it gates flying behind an unlock, and changes it to "gliding." ... which is essentially just flying, but worse.

This is being pushed as a back-of-the-box feature for the expansion.

Started another run of Hollow Knight today and just... man this game is awesome. I can't get over how much there is in it and how tight and polished everything feels. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but in my book it's about as close to a perfect game as you can find.

I played Fall Guys for about an hour and I feel like I saw everything there is to see.

Like clearly that's not true... But I've never seen a game so undersell its replay value as this one. Once the novelty wears off there's just nothing there to bring you back.

Endwalker Spoilers 

"Is FF14 an Isekai?" answered in order of expansion.

ARR - No, it is not an Isekai.

Heavensward - If Isekai is a metaphor for being somewhere that is not your home and feeling out of place, yes. Otherwise no.

Stormblood - Same as Heavensward.

Shadowbringers - Oh yeah. This is an Isekai.

Endwalker - FF14 is an Isekai and it has been since ARR.

I think Disney is paying attention to viewer reactions to Lightyear, because before the movie came out all the trailers focused on Buzz (who is basically a cardboard cutout and has no personality) and now the trailers all focus on his robot cat (who is likeable, cute, and funny).

I don't think it's going to save the sales for the movie, but i appreciate the effort.

Saw an optometrist for the first time in about six years. Minor prescription upgrade, but her biggest feedback was "... Do you use the computer a lot?" I laughed and told her I work in IT. She casually went "... You should get some eyedrops."

I did and Holy wow it doesn't hurt to look at things anymore. Why did no one tell me about this.
