Old-school UNIX and games this week.

Lazy Reading for 2017/03/19

Technical details week for Lazy Reading.

Your unrelated tea link of the week: Haha, one of the world’s best tea houses is in my town.  It’s Leaf Tea Bar, and Niraj is one of the nicest guys.  His prices are reasonable for the quality of the tea, too.

Your related bug link of the week: Teeth of the DragonFly.  (via)

It’s all twofer links this week.

Lazy Reading for 2017/02/05

You weren’t planning to do anything else today, right?  Find some headphones.

Your unrelated link of the week: Bandcamp Daily.  Curated daily presentations about a band or type of music, where the enthusiasm for any given esoteric sonic whatsit oozes through the writing and samples are there to back it up.  Of course I would like it.  Recent highlights from just the past few days: a history of doom metal; Kid Koala’s new album, and whatever this is.

Lazy Reading for 2017/01/15

“Old consumer computers” is this week’s accidental theme.

Your unrelated video of the week: Turbo Encabulator.  There’s more like that out there, like the Rockwell Retro Encabulator.

 

Lazy Reading for 2016/11/20

It took me three edits of this post to spell “Salvador” correctly.

Your unrelated food link of the week: Salvador Dali wrote a cookbook.  (It’s getting reprinted.)

Lazy Reading for 2016/10/02

Every third link is about old technology, and I swear it’s not on purpose.

Your unrelated comics link of the week: DHARBIN.  I briefly met the artist at TCAF a few years ago; he looks exactly like how he draws himself.  Here’s an affecting strip about pets and loss.

Lazy Reading for 2016/09/18

Partially assembled while I was in some multi-hour conference calls at work.

Assembled hastily on Saturday, which is later than I’ve been in a long time.

Lazy Reading for 2016/05/15

I have some links I meant to post weeks ago, so lots of variety this week.

Your unrelated link of the week: The GLOG.  The Goblin Laws of Gaming, a homebrew RPG.  I love just reading the rules on these sorts of things.

Lazy Reading for 2016/04/24

This week filled up fast, despite me having an exam to take in the middle of it.

Your unrelated link of the week: HOW TO OPERATE YOUR FROG.  (via)

Lazy Reading for 2016/04/03

This I all built up over the past two weeks, so plenty to read here.

Lazy Reading for 2016/03/20

I’m sort of proud of how wide a range of topics are covered this week.

 

Lazy Reading for 2016/03/13

I had too many links for this as early as Tuesday.

Your unrelated video link of the week: Rotoscoped Horse.  Taken from the old Muybridge photos.  (via)

Lazy Reading for 2016/02/21

I earn the roguelike tag this week.

Your unrelated link of the week: The Voynich Manuscript and Codex Serahinianus, in PDF form.  Ignore the “never-cracked ancient mystery” bit about the Voynich Manuscript, but it’s still interesting to look at.

Lazy Reading for 2016/02/14

Rapid topic shifts this week.

Your unrelated tea link of the week: Cuppa Thugs.

A good chunk of this is brought over from last week, cause there was so much.

Your unrelated game link of the week: Freecol.  Runs on all the BSDs (thanks Thomas Klausner), as far as I can tell.  (via)

Lazy Reading for 2015/11/29

I am all over the map this week.

Your unrelated comics link of the week: Sunday Comics Kickstarter.

Your unrelated open source game of the week: 0 A.D.  Works on FreeBSD and OpenBSD and can run on DragonFly if you can fix gloox.  (via)
