I bought Mario Kart 8 dlx yesterday and there was no giant day-1 patch to download. Just pop in the cartridge and go! I'm not used to that anymore.

I’ve been using Homebrew on the Mac for years now, but I didn’t know there were brew bundles and Brewfiles

On the Mac I’m simply using Mastodon in a FluidApp window. Works good so far.

These days I have accepted the fact that I'm not going to finish many of my side projects. It's mostly about the journey and the learnings that I take out of them.
