I'm a former videogames journalist and critic that specialised in MMOs and online games.

These days, gaming sits alongside parenting and family life. I still clock up time in WoW, FFXIV and EVE, but I'm also on mobile with Genshin Impact too.

I'm also regularly playing Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons, and I've got into miniature painting (mostly Warhammer 40K).

What stage of capitalism is this?

It’s pretty bold to try and replace employees with volunteers…

Good deed done.

One of my son’s close friends had a broken scooter, and his mum was asking if I knew anywhere that could fix it. So I offered to take a look.

Back wheel was completely busted - crushed bearings, rusted housing, the works. Ordered a replacement part off the internet, arrived today, and all sorted.

My son’s friend gets his scooter back, and his mum doesn’t need to find the money for a new scooter :)

Saw a cyber truck in the wild on the way up to Burlington today and they ARE as dumb in real life as they are in pictures

You’ll never guess what I found going through some of our storage.

@michael Just wanted to say thanks for your how-to on setting up elasticsearch for mastodon - it's been invaluable over the last few days.

Hey all!

‘‘Twas my wife’s birthday yesterday, so I was mostly off social media and focusing on family stuff :)

Getting back to hobby stuff today though!

Afternoon all!

Had a massive delivery today - this set is bigger than I expected. Plus some freebies from the online shop.

Just had a load of PC parts delivered - it looks like we'll be doing some upgrades this weekend!

Does anyone want to see a pic of a gratuitous pile of components?

Good an email from Meta for developers about the Quest 1.

You will not be able to upload builds for new apps that only support Quest 1

Builds for new apps that support other Quest devices along with Quest 1 will be able to be uploaded, but Quest 1 support will be blocked

New apps will not be listed in the catalog of Quest 1 apps in the Meta Store

Quest 1 users will not be able to search or purchase new apps created after April 30, 2024

Looks like daddy’s got himself a new paperweight.

@scopique Ugh. I got an email demanding that I link my old Oculus account (I had the OG Rift) with a Meta account or I'll lose all my purchases.

I've ignored it.

I’m off to a wedding today, which is an excuse to put on the smart stuff. My wife says I look like a gangster.

CDN update!

7 days in and we've got some interesting stats. Half a terabyte of bandwidth per week is definitely manageable from a cost perspective. And serving up nearly a million requests at almost 90% cache hit rate is phenomenal.

That said, there have been snags. The number of members here experiencing image load problems is significant, and it should have been something that I anticipated and planned for. If there's a lesson to learn, it's this one.

Gazimoff,
@Gazimoff@gamepad.club avatar

@Tipa no, there have been several people who what that problem. There’s a fix - I just need to know what browser you’re using :)

Gazimoff,
@Gazimoff@gamepad.club avatar

@Tipa this might help to clear out your cache for Gamepad, but you may end up having to clear your entire Chrome cache: https://gamepad.club/@Gazimoff/112146343611516300

Gazimoff,
@Gazimoff@gamepad.club avatar

@Tipa Fingers crossed it sticks now!

Gazimoff,
@Gazimoff@gamepad.club avatar

@Tipa @scopique I’ll be honest, I had to do a complete clear of Chrome. all settings, all site data, the whole thing.

I appreciate that it’s very annoying when you have to sign in to everything again though :(

If disassemble is from assemble,

Why isn’t demolish from molish?

The classic Nokia 3210 is 25 years old! Announced on March 18th 1999, this device went on to sell 160 million units worldwide. By comparison, the iPhone 5S only managed 164 million some 14 years later.

Such a classic.

Hey all!

If you're still having problems with images not loading on Gamepad.Club, please message me and I'll walk you through how to fix it. It's a cache clearing issue because of a stubborn bit of javascript, but it's easy to fix.

Once More, With Feeling

Well, I screwed up. Learn from my mistakes, folks, and back up your stuff.

Delivery tracking says "driver is 1 stop away" driver sits at the same spot one block away for a goddamn hour.

App now says "driver has several other deliveries before you" as he drives away.

These damn tracking apps are worse than not having any idea.

Gazimoff,
@Gazimoff@gamepad.club avatar

@WagesOf oh, Amazon delivery tracking?

Yeah, it’s balls.
