Fairly momentous day for me today. Feeling pensive and quiet as a result.

Today, I intentionally let my nursing registration lapse. That is, I am now no longer a nurse.

It feels bittersweet. I was ready to let it lapse. Iโ€™d had enough. Iโ€™ve spent the last 7 years (and 3 years prior gaining my degree in nursing) working as an A&E Nurse (ER nurse to you yanks) and of course the last few years really havenโ€™t been kind. (1/5)

@harrybo93 Youโ€™re a stronger person than most to have been through all of that and come out of the other side of it! Massive respect.

Sounds like youโ€™ve made a good decision for yourself and your family. ๐Ÿ’œ

Tonight task: Set up Xcloud on my Steamdeck.

Shouldn't be too difficult, although it is more difficult than it should be.

For a company that wants it's platforms available on other devices the fact that I can't install something on Desktop mode to just have this work seems shortsighted.

@danielholt This is exactly why Iโ€™ve never got into cloud gaming. The input lag just feels awful, and Iโ€™d say Iโ€™ve got a pretty good connection.

Local gaming or nothing for me.

I've officially requested a place for my son at the local primary school's attached nursery.

His big sister went there. It's on the school grounds. And we get on great with the nursery teachers.

Because it's not run for profit we also don't get hit with ridiculous add-on charges that private places use to earn money.

With the funded hours it'll likely only cost us ยฃ50 a term or so.

@danielholt Wow thatโ€™s a steal! The nursery my son goes to costs ยฃ80 a day. ๐Ÿ’€

Iโ€™m looking forward to September when he starts school!

For a game that came out in 2015, this looks spectacular!

Lara survives A LOT of cliff falls. And her recovery time is miraculous! ๐Ÿ˜‚

EighthLayer,
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

@thegamerstavern Definitely do. Obviously start with the first game in this series though!

EighthLayer,
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

@andy I only ever played the first one around the time of its original release but never picked up the others. Theyโ€™re all on Game Pass now so wanted to work my way through them.

The first game was brilliant!

After a quick cliff fall, Lara is back to raiding tombs again with only a bump on the head and a few stratches.

I recognise some of the puzzles in this game. Have I actually played this before?! ๐Ÿ˜…

EighthLayer,
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

Yes I have! Well, at least part of it anyway. Going by the amount of Xbox Achievements I unlocked for it previously, it suggests I haven't finished the game, but did put 6 hours into it. 6 hours that I do not remember for the most part! ๐Ÿ˜…

@thegamerstavern Yes thatโ€™s the one. Thereโ€™s a definitive edition as well which I believe increases the quality of the graphics.

EighthLayer,
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

@thegamerstavern I imagine it should run great on your Steam Deck.

@thegamerstavern Iโ€™m replaying through Tomb Raider with the aim of moving on to Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Itโ€™s much longer than I remember it being. ๐Ÿ˜…

Edit: Just completed it. ๐Ÿ˜‚

@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

@thegamerstavern Yeah Iโ€™ve been playing it over the last week or so, but didnโ€™t think I was that close to the end. ๐Ÿ˜‚

EighthLayer, to Spotify
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

Just found out that Spotify have secretly introduced new โ€œBasicโ€ plans which just removes access to audio books and drops the monthly cost a little bit.

Worth looking at if youโ€™re like me and use Spotify but arenโ€™t the slightest bit interested in audio books on their platform.

EighthLayer,
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

Now, whereโ€™s the option to remove podcasts and drop the price even further? ๐Ÿ™ƒ

EighthLayer,
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

@natejung Possibly region specific then I guess. ๐Ÿ˜•

I was going to stream later tonight, but I got woken up 3 times last night due to issues at work so I feel like a zombie today. ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I do hate being on-call.

@sylphrin Got to power through the work day still. Iโ€™m just doing mundane tasks today. ๐Ÿ‘

I was going to be doing some ISO accreditation documentation but that can certainly wait until tomorrow now. ๐Ÿ˜‚

For those that use the @Vivaldi browser, what is your favorite feature?

Please BOOST for maximum exposure to the

Polls are limited to only four choices, hence the options that are listed.

@cliffwade @Vivaldi I tried to use Vivaldi, but I stopped because there doesnโ€™t seem to be a simple way of having different taskbar icons for different profiles, so you just end up with several of the same Vivaldi icons and not knowing which one relates to which profile.

Iโ€™ve gone back to using Firefox with a little bit of Arc.

Decided to start a replay of Tomb Raider. Crazy to think the rebooted version is already 11 years old.

When I played this the first time around, I thought this scene looked incredible! And although some of the graphics in this game still stand up well today, itโ€™s definitely showing its age!

Scene from Tomb Raider showing Lara Croft standing up whilst bloodied and injured, and looking over a cliffside to a ship and plane wrecks along a rocky shoreline.

EighthLayer,
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

@Badolwen Oh yeah for sure!

@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

Rolling credits on my replay of Tomb Raider. Now I can move on to Shadow of the Tomb Raider!

EighthLayer,
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

Oh wait, I need to play Rise of the Tomb Raider first! ๐Ÿ˜…
