"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).

only thing missing is an export/import feed list feature... may have sent him an email about it hoping it will be added.

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. 😥

I get why, but still makes me sad. Anyone know any other good APEX-esq scifi magazines?

podcast: 99% Invisible. episode 389. proof that creativity and cultural products are built on other creative things. no one creates in a vacuum

For the folks, have a look at the TBD CATALOG (available for free). A skymall-esq catalog of design fiction. Products that don't exist, but absolutely could at any moment become real.

I'm thinking of getting a new (epub capable) as my old Kobo is slowly dying... but would like one with physical buttons for turning pages... anyone got any ?

For the fan: enjoying the hell out of Alpha Beta Gamer on youtube. So many obscure stylish horror games, and no commentary so you get to focus on the game being LP'd.

For the LucasArts fan that loves a good pixel point and click game...

The Drifter. Can't wait for it to be out!

Have to say though, having some issues. I tried making a basic rec file but it does not auto generate any fields and all entries are put at the start of the file rather at the bottom... :S

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 pokyfriends.com/blog/54/modern

The editor is available via Github: github.com/cknave/kevedit
