are we at the point yet where transistor-accurate hardware simulations of Asteroids exist and run in the browser or on a phone??

just curious, I was updating my phone and saw a new retro game app on F-Droid. and remembered that Asteroids was pretty weird compared to most early video games, from the perspective of how the computing was done and how the screen was drawn.

every time I see discussion of virtualbox among friends or in the wild, it's because something is broken.

Finished reading Kill All Normies: Online Culture Wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the Alt-Right by Angela Nagle. It’s a quick read and very accessible. Learned a lot about parts of cyberculture that I didn’t know, and got a new awareness and perspective on the ones I was already familiar with. Overall the book is a call to action to abandon the stale cultural ideas of transgression as a good in itself because it supports the rise of the far-right in totality, and to build something new.

Nagle also impresses the point that the response to the utter liberation of transgression (in the alt-right, 4chan, fash, manosphere, etc) cannot be puritanical moralizing and more identitarian politics, as that was already the historical cyber-movement to which the alt-right was a reaction. It has to be something new.

billionaire class economics 

MacKenzie Scott ended up a billionaire after getting divorced from her slimy ex, to the tune of about $36 billion as reported.

Since then, she's given away about $8 billion, which any of us would have to agree is an extremely solid start.

Except now her net worth is up to about $60 billion.

I should probably settle on an ubuntu flavor once & for all and start documenting my desktop customizations so they can be easily repeated, because That Whole Shit is a MAJOR barrier to me reinstalling any of my devices
