The online multiplayer mess

Category: Games

So, this article is a bit of an odd one, but it intrigued me enough that I just had to write (or rather type) it down. I never really played any games as a kid or a teen that had a lot of random online multiplayer stuff, (unless you count Webkinz or Club Penguin, which I won't since those are primarily for younger audiences.) Sure, I played online with friends on stuff like Minecraft or Pokemon, b... » Continue Reading

Internet Nostalgia: Reviving everyone's favorite sites

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

I think everyone can say that at some point they've looked back on years past, longing for the good old days. For me, that time is when Club Penguin still existed, Angry Birds and Minecraft were the most popular games out there, and I didn't have to worry about GPA as much. And as much as I love life right now, sometimes it's nice to hop on an older version of Minecraft Pocket Edition and build so... » Continue Reading

AsteroidOS First Impressions: Linux all the things

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

So, Linux is my favorite operating system to use on my computer, and I kind of use it on my phone with Android (even though its not really the same as the Linux most people know and love.) And once actual Linux on phones matures, I'll probably use that too. That would only leave one piece of tech I use that doesn't run Linux: my smartwatch. Or at least, that was the case until eariler today when I... » Continue Reading

I'm finally deleting my Facebook!

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

So, I've been thinking of deleting my Facebook account for a while, but I never really could. I always used it for important groups, messenger, and grad party invites, so it was never really much of an option for me to delete it. But nowadays I don't ever use it. I rarely use Messenger, I haven't posted in ages, everyone is using everything else for grad party invites, and I realized that all of t... » Continue Reading

The Facebook Problem

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

So, I think it's safe to say everyone reading this is sick of Facebook at this point. If you're reading this, you've probably made the jump to Mastodon or SpaceHey to get away from it. It feels anymore like most of the big social networks have become such toxic places, that using them isn't even enjoyable anymore. And of course there's the privacy aspect of things. Facebook has been so horrible wi... » Continue Reading

My thoughts on the RMS situation

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

So, if you haven't been keeping up with FOSS news lately, or haven't heard the members of the FOSS community talking, then you might have missed that Richard M Stallman (or RMS for short) was recently re-instated to the Free Software Foundation's (FSF's) board of directors. Now I'll admit, I missed the original news saying that he resigned back in 2019 (or I at least forgot about it until now) so ... » Continue Reading

Cold bad.

Category: Life

So, I live in Kansas. And right now, Kansas weather kinda sucks. As anyone in most of North America has seen, there has been a wicked cold front going through the area recently. And I am officially done with it. Now, don't get me wrong, I prefer winter over summer. As someone who has suffered heat exhaustion before, I would rather have colder weather. You can always bundle up as much as you want w... » Continue Reading

The old internet is dead. Long live the old internet!

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

So, we all know that the internet we know today is broken. Its full of trackers and all sorts of other garbage, and people are starting to get sick of it. Almost makes you long for the good old days of the internet, when things were a bit simpler, and companies like Google and Facebook didn't have an iron grip on the web. Well, there are some developers that feel the same way, and in trying to fix... » Continue Reading

I might actually like Apple now?!

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

So, if you knew me in middle school, you probably would've known me as the kid who hated Apple. Like, REALLY hated Apple. I was an Android and Windows fanboy and not the good kind of fanboy. Even throughout high school and to this, I still hated Apple, but for different reasons, and I wasn't annoying about it anymore (I also moved from Windows to Linux in that time period.) However, as privacy and... » Continue Reading
