#DailyRetroGame 232: Lode Runner (1983)
This game took quite the journey to the Apple II, starting on the Commodore PET and being developed on university campus machines. By the time Doug Smith refined it for home play, it was a timeless platform puzzler with superb mechanics and limitless longevity by way of a level designer. It’s had many variations since – but single-screen efforts remain the best.
The gaming of us never ends. Threads ensures that an empty search and other unspecified filters always pushes celebrity accounts. Exactly the behavior we should be moving away from. Diversity matters. Celebrity doesn’t. On the upside, anything that helps pillage ExTwitter is a good thing.
Do you swear to tell the whole truth?
I do. Believe me, the statement I presented to the bank was the best bank statement ever presented to any bank. It was a winning bank statement. Everyone says that. They come to me and say, 'Sir, how do you write the best bank statements,' and I say, 'I only hire the best lawyers.' And this whole trial is very unfair because Everyone Hates Trump.
Someone asked me what I think is going on with Trump's lawyers attacking the clerk.
Yesterday I said this:
"It's hard to tell what is going on with that. My best guess is that Trump's lawyers are fatigued, know they are losing, and are getting weird and paranoid."
Judge Engoron, who sees it all up close, said there is misogyny.
I just saw a picture of the clerk and I have revised my opinion.
The judge may be right . . .

"Nearly a year after taking over [#Twitter], you’d be hard pressed to name a single improvement to the site under #Musk’s direction. His biggest ideas have all blown up in his face."

So Rudy is getting sued by
>3 people defamed during Rudy's Jan6 propaganda.
>His former lawyer and Hunter Biden partner, Robert Costello.
>Hunter Biden (for hacking him).
So he sues Joe Biden, in a suit that will, at least, be stayed.
Rudy's big announcement is that he is suing Joe Biden for calling him a Russian pawn in 2020. Comes shortly after Hunter Biden sued Rudy.
I love opera. I specifically love the San Francisco Opera. But there is no power in this world that could make me go to see the Steve Jobs opera tomorrow night or any other night.
For people who like wall calendars, what do you like about them?
Womp womp time.

Quite a document title in "U.S. v. #Trump
🤦🏻♀️😂 “#Trump lawyers argued Judge Tanya #Chutkan should recuse from case for previous statements they say give appearance of bias. They did not outright accuse Chutkan of being biased against Trump, but highlighted statements they claimed "create a perception of prejudgment incompatible w our justice system." #legal #TrumpIndictment 1/..
Why doesn't Apple make a TV? They would own that space. Half the people I know would happily buy one, if it meant no spyware, user choice, and never buying another "smart" TV again. Even if the cost was 2x normal smart tv.
Judge Kelly is talking now, in the #Tarrio case, prior to his sentencing.
Thing is, he always starts out with such condemnation, then disappoints us with the number of years in the sentence.
