- Tetris
- Lumines

A fly was constantly buzzing against the closed window. I moved a few potted cacti to open the window. After a little while, the fly finally flew out.

Firefox may have lost up to 12% of its users in 2021. We're once again in danger of a single browser dominating the web as in the days of IE. What's worse is that Chrome is owned by a glorified advertisement company.

The Internet is just too important for Google to become the de facto gatekeeper.

And the fact that Chrome is open source really doesn't matter here. Google has tight control over the project. Maintaining a fork would require a herculean effort.

Microsoft should release their new emoji as an open source font. Give Noto Emoji (which I love!) some more competition in the open source world. 😈

"A dragon?"
"A corporation."

Just finished making this little isometric mini world in #Krita. Been wanting to try this for a while. Made up of photos from Unsplash.

Krita is really, really good for photo editing / manipulation. Non destructive adjustments, perspective warping, easy clipping and masking. Sometimes a little laggy, but a legit alternative to Photoshop.
