• Sometimes I get all complicated about note taking. Should I use a personal wiki? A productivity app? Some to-do thing for my phone or a browser plug-in? Then I just use plain text files on my cloud, open in a few Notepad++ tabs as desired.

  • New Year’s resolutions moved me 2 miles today, but also got me through 1 of apparently 2 Deerhoof albums that came out in 2020 while making it happen. I can probably hear a lot of new music this way.

  • Do you ever find yourself playing the Street Fighter RPG and going, “Damn, what are the stats for Dhalsim and Ken ‘Bluegrass’ Paducah again?” If so, I’ve got you covered with the Street Fighter RPG character compendium! Street Fighter Paradise

  • I’m an awful procrastinator with the X-Mas gift wrapping, but I get it done. Surprise bonus of the wrapping paper I used this year is that it had a grid on the back, so you could cut straight lines. Amazing technological achievement!

  • I strung up some tacky X-mas lights all over my Street Fighter web page in sloppy, haphazard fashion. I accidentally went out of control on one of my pages, but so it shall be! Street Fighter Paradise

  • My silly Street Fighter image map works just fine on the ol’ regular desktop web, but now I need to know JavaScript junk just because everything be resizing these days… Code & learn, I guess. Street Fighter Paradise

  • Hello Moderna vaccine. I will see you next Monday between 9a - 10a!

  • I mostly don’t play brand new vid-games these days, but something about CP2077’s “In the future, you will have a line across your face & get a removable jaw/throat made of metal, & we will show folks w/their jaws off a lot” aesthetic seems… silly? Try hard? Unlikely? Dunno…

  • I’m often confused by discussions mentioning Sylvia Plath b/c they make no mention of her shady career as a so-called psychic. Oh? That’s Sylvia Browne you say? Maybe I will remember that in some future time. Hey, at least I don’t own any books by Sylvia Browne either. Standards.

  • I installed ejabberd on my server so I can use my own XMPP server for old school IM. I even connected w/a 3rd party client (Pidgin). FB supported XMPP chat until earlier this year, but did anyone expect them to keep anything open & compatible with anything outside their own silo?

  • I’ve been browsing the… old web? a lot lately and it’s just full of charming nonsense. Wanna throw knives? History of Soviet calculators? “Classic” Weather Channel, w/old music & archived forecast videos? :-) TWC Classics

  • Wiby is a search engine just for simple, amateur old school sites. It’s fun to “Open in new tab” the “surprise me…” link a few times and see the charmingly specific & ideosyncratic results.

  • “Our Incredible Journey” is a fun tumblr of sunny acquisition announcements followed by closure notices. It’s like all the “It is with mixed emotions…” mails I get from managers at work whenever one of their team gets another job.

  • I keep working on my /neonace spacehey page. Animated gradient h1 & h4, background, colors, a YouTube playlist, etc. but I can’t match guys like this. Oh well, Im’ma live on this site a while: Michael’s SpaceHey Profile

  • After making a character I had to buy a physical copy. Space opera goodness. Everybody gets their own ship. The “classes” are card suits, the levels are card ranks. Money is called “Chips.” Roll attributes, choose 3 skills, go! I dunno, it’s just fk’n rad.

  • I’ve seen bits and pieces of Hallmark Channel Christmas movies over the years, but wow! You’ll see this picture and it will give you thoughts. That is all.

  • I shaved everything before work today. Nobody noticed.

  • Why not? I’m always willing to play with some internet nostalgia. Next, to up the absurd personalization, link to music, & start passing chain questionnaires full of deeply personal questions around to friends like it’s 2004. My SpaceHey

  • “An The Maker” is an 18 y/o German student who made a MySpace clone: SpaceHey. This is silly and fun. I mean, do I need to sign up really? Did I need to make a site on GeoCities clone NeoCities? No. But maybe.

  • Mmm… work meeting, “We expect the 1st round of caregivers to have received vaccines within 2 weeks. IT caregivers that are on the floors interacting in person in patient care areas will be included in this 1st round.” Yeah, baby, yeah!

  • Prepping for this “New Year, New Character” RPG thing, looks like I’ll do a bonus week and do 38 characters (in 38 systems). Damn… Anyways, here’s a solid hint as to one of the games on the schedule. I love fictional apocalypses that arrive in years current or past.

    A World Gone Mad

  • I think I’m gonna try one of those social media challenges in January that I happened to see someone post a thing on: The New Year, New Character Challenge! One RPG character a day. Already have my list of games: 7 Fantasy (3 semi-historical), 8 Sci-fi, 16 Modern (7-ish Supers)

  • I used to have my name at a .net URL, but like a dummy I only paid for a year or two, let it lapse, and it got snatched up by a squatter. Now I’m all about “Get the name for 10 years, buddy!”

  • It’s my inaugural post to my new URL, benjaminterry.com, which I’m using micro.blog to host, and apparently is capable of cross-posting to Twitter. Sounds cool. Much work to do. Hope to centralize & integrate my messy web presence a bit. Computer nerd stuff…
