What's making me happy 2017-01-15
By Nat Welch
First #happy post of 2017. Here we go!
I read How I got my attention back this morning. It’s the third statement by people I respect (the other two being @fablednet and @mel_cantrell) telling me they had removed Twitter and Facebook from their phones. So I am removing both. I had actually uninstalled Facebook a while back, and Twitter I removed this morning. I hope this will get me back into journaling and writing on here. @craigmod’s article really hit home. Not going extreme enough to block the domains on my laptop, but definitely trying to lower distractions.
ArsTechnica covered TASbot’s crazy run from yesterday at Games Done Quick: How a robot got Super Mario 64 and Portal “running” on an SNES. I highly recommend watching the video. It’s a total trip.
The Line of Death is an interesting discussion on security and user-interfaces.
I couldn’t stop laughing while reading Please Stop Using Doughnuts as Sex Toys. So hilarious!
The A.V. Club’s most anticipated games of 2017 is a pretty indepth article talking about what is coming out in the world of video games in 2017.
Obama Awards Biden Presidential Medal Of Freedom brought many people I know to tears.
Best Anime Movies Not Made by Studio Ghibli is a fantastic list of great anime films. I highly recommend all of these.
Anyways, I hope you’re having a good new year, and I hope you have a great week.
