"Read" by Mayan Mashraki is such a simple and enjoyable RSS reader for my phone! Loving rediscovering the simple joy of a well pruned list of RSS feeds to all things (RSS bridge ftw).

2019 was one hell of a year... 2020 is going a bit slower so got time to read again - thought I would catch up on APEX magazine... except it went into indefinite hibernation April 2019. 😥

A while back I mentioned using DOS emulation as a way to make crossplatform games, and linked to a few game creation systems for DOS.

Today's find: KevEdit, a ZZT editor (for the ZZT unaware, think Nethack but with colors and ascii animations) nicely reviewed by DrDOS at

The editor is available via Github:
