    It's spring here so I've sort of scattered corn, silverbeet, radish, kale, strawberry, cucumber, zucchini, beetroot, beans, sorrel, dill and a bunch of flowers around the yard. I tend to take a fairly chaotic approach to gardening so it's sort of whoever survives wins.

    I've also got an unreasonable amount of tomatoes and chillis started from seed in pots so once those are strong enough I'll put them in the ground too.

    I've played an hour or so of the new content and it seems like a solid update! The CIA operators play totally differently, it's a lot more about sneaking about in enemy territory and striking individual enemies. That said, they still have a lot of capacity for upping the violence with rocket launchers and machine guns.

    A stand out moment was sneaking an under cover operative in to a building to find a VIP, then unleashing hell with a black ops guy armed with a machine gun and a bandolier of grenades and sneaking the under cover guy and VIP out the back door.

    I HATE the way that people seem to love to use Discord nowadays. It's a fantastic chat application but people use it to replace all other functions of a website and it's just really not suited for that.

    My favourite example is the Discord for the Skyrim mod Skywind. They have a channel where they post WIP screenshots but I can't enable notifications on that channel because Discord won't let me enable notifications on servers above x number of users so ultimately I never see the posts. Compare that with an RSS feed which would be far more suited to the purpose.

    I think some of the new expansion breaks on source ports at the moment due to differences in how they localise text or something but I'm sure they'll catch up!

    I never played Quake 1 multiplayer but I spent a few hours in deathmatch lastl night and it was great fun! I'm sort of hoping this drives more players in to arena shooters because I feel like the genre is due for a resurgence!

    I ran scripts over my Facebook to wipe every post and comment I've ever made (I'm still shackled to it because my family refuses to move). I've also done the same with my Reddit account. I'm under no illusions that it's gone but at least it's a little harder to find. I think it all depends on your threat model. If you're just wanting to keep your private life private, I guess not tying things to your real name and liberally using alts is fine. If you're trying to evade a nation state it becomes a lot more complicated.

    My favourite is "There was an error message" "What did it say?" "I don't know I closed it."

    I've been running testing (with the intention of switching the repo to bullseye) on my home PC for about a month and it's been a pretty typical rock solid Debian experience!

    Jupiter Hell is great fun! Early on in the Early Access it was a bit rough but the developer has done a pretty good job of tightening it up and smoothing out the tough edges!

    Xonotic Instagib is one of my favourite game modes. The idea of a game that is purely OSOK really appeals to me!
