Nintendo Switch

It’s been a few months, and I’ve seen that the Nintendo Switch is doing well. It has far too many “enhanced” versions of games (I suppose that’s generally to put product on the shelves. Save the new stuff for later in the year, like Christmas). I have seen that the Switch is going to get Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but so far, there have been no compelling titles that I really am interested in playing at the moment. I guess because I’m still immersed in Skyrim, Mass Effect Andromeda, and Diablo 3. I know, it’s a bit silly to be playing Diablo 3 (over and over and over), but by golly, they got the Necromancer finally! I am so glad they added that character. 🙂

Anyhow, I suppose at some point I’ll get a Switch. But for now, I don’t expect I’ll need to make room under my TV just yet. 🙂

Net Neutrality

All I know is people who think they know about Net Neutrality are annoying to those of us who do know what it means. And the Obama Administration’s “rules” are NOT net neutrality. They never were. They were government overreach into the Internet. It attempted to move something that was never meant to be a public utility under the umbrella of public utilities.

 

So, if you’re advocating Net Neutrality without knowing the inner workings of the Internet. Stop. You’re making yourselves look silly.

Twitter part 2

I have left twitter, but I decided to leave my “self” there, rather than disappear completely. I have no desire to interact with any of the nitwits anymore. I simply don’t. I thought after a break it’d be a pleasant change and things could go back to normal and the polarized (not sunglasses) opinions would calm down. Well, like in everything else, there is no such thing as an adult anymore. One or two folks who I really enjoy chatting with are still there, but for the most part, it’s a flaming ball of yelling, name-calling, and other nonsense. Twitter has their “elite”, which reminds me of the old days of IRC mods. They were the blue-checks of the pre-social-media era. 🙂 And some were quite alright. However, some were not. And that became most as IRC got more and more AOL folks on its servers.

I guess I’m trying to say, the more things change, the more they stay the same. I’m frankly done being bothered by it. I need to write a script that sorts my working v. non-working MAME ROMs. 🙂
