I was working my way through the Expanse as well, but at some point I got distracted somewhere in Cibola Burn and haven't gotten back into it. I can't recall what it was that made me stop but I should really get back into it. My partner and I blew through the TV Show and were itching for more so I picked up the books thus far.

So damn cool. Love seeing how much it means to the people involved.

Ah well, probably for the best then. Honestly, we've got our laptops, a switch, PS4, and two Retropies so at least in our household we're set for a bit of casual fun.

Shit I remember tinkering with Plex - I don't think I ever really understood how it was meant to operate and gave up pretty quickly. I'm using a FireTV with that Kodi addon but the device is about 4 years old now. Shield it shall be, soon.

We have an nVidia shield in our flat, slowly using them to replace our FireTV setups in our bedrooms/lounge - mine is next to be replaced but we've barely scratched the gaming side of it.

But as you've mentioned elsewhere here, 35GB per second. Our internet is fucking fast for New Zealand - but even so...

Damn, not avaliable in NZ yet - would definitely enjoy this one I think.

Had about 1000 turn up in Dunedin. For city of about 130k when the Uni students are here, that's not a horrible amount.

Some quality signs on display - "My outrage can't fit on this sign". And "We don't have a vote, but we do have a voice".

Even our city is just so quiet today. Everyone is feeling it in some shape or form.

Yeah I'm well behind, I discovered some of The Eagles work in 2017 - well my partner showed me their stuff - and One of these Nights shot to the top of my most played!

In a way it's cool, people get to introduce some loved classics and watch me get right into it for the first time.

Both songs by Pyramid;


Also this because I'd never heard it till recently and feel like I've been missing out...

Thanks for writing it all out - I was thinking about some kind of angled-pot mechanics as I was picturing having to replace just one and what work that might entail. Good to know I was vaguely heading in the right direction.

The upside is this might not be necessary for me, no issue with space where I live and I imagine these sprung up to combat that issue. I do like the aesthetic though.

I was watching that Planet Earth 2 Doco and was transfixed by the Singapore man-made trees. I had seen pictures of them before and I honestly thought they were a sci-fi concept art thing for a bit.

Like, fuck that's cool. No idea if it's doing what they intended, but it's cool.

Well this isn't how I thought I spend my Monday morning but I'm well intrigued by all this.

My partner is a plant-lady, I reckon I could sell her on a green-wall. My landlord however...

I think the last Final Fantasy I bought was X. The more I see come out the less I think I'm missing out on.

Took me like 50 hours playtime as a kid to beat Final Fantasty VII (5 hours on 3-phase Hojo, that fuck) and it remains one of my fondest gaming memories, now if I were to put that many hours into a game it's probably because I'm grinding just to play the fucking game.

Notable current exceptions are Stardew Valley and Breath of the Wild.
