Iโ€™m also not oblivious to all the trailing cables. These tubes and cable ties have been sat on a shelf for months waiting for me to find time to fix it. ๐Ÿ˜…

There is one glaring thing that needs fixing in this picture... ๐Ÿค”

My new plan is to swap my Mega Drive back in but find a way of making it look not terrible on a modern TV. ๐Ÿ˜…

The Dreamcast will move back upstairs. As I have a VGA cable on its way in the post I could keep it on a shelf and connect to a CRT for light guns or modern TV as and when I want to use it. ๐Ÿ‘

I reckon adding this Toast real-wood cover to my Nintendo Switchโ€™s base helps it fit a bit better into my living room. ๐Ÿ˜

(As you might be able to guess from the colour of the joycons, I bought the Pokemon Letโ€™s Go version so itโ€™s covering pictures of Pikachu & Eevee!)

This boxed copy of SimCity Classic for Windows finally arrived from the US!

Iโ€™m guessing it had been left in a box in a garage for a while because it arrived with a layer of grime and smelt strongly of gasoline. But that wasnโ€™t anything some damp kitchen towel and spraying a fine mist of febreeze over it couldnโ€™t fix ๐Ÿ‘

As an aside btw, if youโ€™re in the market for a second hand Sega Mega Drive (or Genesis if youโ€™re in the US) always check the top label of the round bit.

If it doesnโ€™t say โ€œHigh Definition Graphics Stereo Soundโ€ then you have one of the later models where they economised on a cheaper sound chip.

Itโ€™s not that noticeable to the casual gamer, but if you listen to samples of audio from both consoles for some games you will notice the difference ๐Ÿ‘

@bobstechsite I couldnโ€™t find my ski gloves to build a snowman. But I think this is better ๐Ÿคฃ

(One photo has a table with 14cm of snow on top of it like a giant pie, and the other has a slice I cut out of it with a knife)


Iโ€™m going to be going out into it shortly to pick up groceries. Wellies, hat, glovers & multiple layers would be the order of the day methinks.

It's fair to say the iPhone 7 I bought second hand to replace my dead Samsung Galaxy A5 is "well used" ๐Ÿ˜‚

It's nothing a good case can't put right though, so I'm not disappointed. ยฃ199 isn't a bad price either.

So, as masto.host and others confirmed the "High Contrast" theme isn't broken, it's just so similar to the stock Mastodon theme it's hard to tell you've even applied it.

Maybe it's just me, but when I think of "High Contrast" these colour schemes are what springs to mind ๐Ÿค”

I hope my rod was everything you wanted it to be ๐Ÿ‘

For those interested in how to get to the "Mastodon Light" theme btw, head to Settings > Preferences > Site Theme.

I would be genuinely intrigued to know if the "High Contrast" theme works for other people, because it doesn't work on my instance.

I've revised my LibreOffice customisation regimen today!

Step 1: Install libreoffice-style-sifr, head to Tools > Options... > LibreOffice > View then set the icon theme as "Sifr Dark"

Step 2 (NEW): In both Writer and Calc: View > User Interface > Single Toolbar

Screenshots below are for LibreOffice 6.1.4, which I installed through Debian Stretch backports. Gnome theme is Adwaita Dark.

Right, this pile of nostalgia is what my insomnia produced as a replacement. It'll do for now! ๐Ÿ™‚

*in a Northern Irish accent* give meh daughter beck nay. Eh hev a very perteculehr set of skehlls! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I re-did the "more articles" picture for Bob's Tech Site so it'd use my new profile image as a base, but it seems to have acquired Liam Neeson's nose for some reason ๐Ÿค”
