Monkey Island. I never got to play this as a kid. I ordered the floppy disks off eBay but they were duds… one gotek floppy emulator with usb drive full of disk images later …….

Please boost:

A screen reader for Linux (GUI) is being developed in Rust. If anyone knows Rust and would like to help, or to just view the great work taking shape here, see:

Ok this is so cool. Gotek floppy drive emulation replacing my old mechanical disk drive. I love vintage tech blended with new home brew tech 🥰

@lee when I deleted my facebook, years ago, there was the option to download all my data. There's a .zip living somewhere in my files in case I ever want to see my old communications.

@lee You do know the conversations can be downloaded too? Or is it the UI important context for the memory? I downloaded my info last week. I always get stuck at the last step: contacting people that has posted pictures of me that I want to have removed before I delete.

A week in from deactivating Facebook (the final mainstream social media I had left). I already know I will delete it fully. Just want to take some screenshots of messages from family who’ve passed before I delete myself from the Metaverse.

@lee it's been 10 months since I deleted all my Facebook accounts. Overall worth it.

Zuckerberg Announces Fantasy World Where Facebook Is Not a Horrible Company
vice.com/en/article/qjb485/zuc

"The future Zuckerberg went on to pitch was a delusional fever dream cribbed most obviously from dystopian science fiction and misleading or outright fabricated virtual reality product pitches from the last decade."

An artist:

1. bought an Andy Warhol drawing for $20,000.
2. made 999 high-quality forgeries.
3. shuffled them.
4. sold each of the 1000 drawings for $250.

You might get the original $20,000 Warhol, but you’ll never know. This hurts my brain and I'm loving it!

It's a reasonable price for common art. No lottery. Nobody is ripped off. The artist profits hugely, yet gives away a unique item far below market value, but its receiver won't know.

It challenges our value system in very Warhol-way.

so facebook decided that being one of the evil companies in the world is not enough for them, so they decided to also be cringe as heck

@lee It is deliberately not a feature. It's controversial, I know. I need to write a blog post about it at some point.

Is coffee a laxative? Asking for a friend. BRB... must dash!
