KSP has tutorials now!

I noticed that Kerbal Space Program recently added another Easter egg to the Mun, which was enough reason for me to fire up the game again. (It was given away for free on Epicgames recently, so you probably have it!) I had to reinstall it as it wouldn’t launch with […]

TIL to search date ranges in Google Photos

I learned something new about Google Photos. I can examine the photos taken between two dates by entering #date_range:YYYYMMDD-YYYYMMDD in the search box. I have images going back more than twenty years in Google Photos so a way to view a selection of those images is really useful! I haven’t […]

Goodbye to 2022

The great Oli Frey created the cover for Zzap!64 issue 68, 1990. It was the last picture in the Zzap!64 2022 calendar. It celebrated the release of Chase HQ 2. I don’t remember playing that game, but I must have. I definitely played the first game and it wasn’t great. […]

Lazing on a Sunday afternoon

If you don’t know, “Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon” by Queen, you’re in for a treat. Absolutely lovely song and one of my favourite songs. Just over 1 minute of perfection. Jai on the Recovering Queen Podcast did a great cover of it too! When you’ve listened to that, follow […]

The Twitter Meltdown (again)

I don’t really have anything enlightening to say about Elon Musk kicking journalists off Twitter, except that it’s not really surprising. He seems to be rocking from one crisis to another.

Restore terminal access to Dropbox on macOS
