Been a while since I did one of these:

Hello. I'm moving between making analogue / physical games, to digital games.

Trouble is, that I have to learn to code to do this. But that's okay. I used to code. Am sure I can pick up up again.

I want to become a self-sustaining, one-person, calm and compassionate gamedev studio that makes games they want to play.

Ex-Designer, ex-FE Developer, Sort of Musician. Does not work well with authority.

Look, it’s not in my nature to be mysterious. But I can’t talk about it and I can’t talk about why.

AAAAND that's just reminded me that I have to update the playlist section on my website.

Getting really annoying to have to keep track of macro events affecting my life year after year instead of just being able to live a normal peaceful life.

Shampoo opens from the top and conditioner from the bottom.

This changes everything.

slower computers, please 

I'm a computer guy, but I'm very much over fast computers. Most of your computer's resources are wasted loading ads and trackers on webpages. Video games require more and more power to deliver less interesting experiences. Don't get me started on cryptocurrency. Computers are getting increasingly complex, therefore less reliable, nearly impossible to repair, wasteful, and devastating to the environment. We need #slowcomputers and more #retrocomputing

I'm not here to work 40 hours a week to increase the GDP of the country or increase stock prices.

I'm here to spend nights staring at the 100 billion stars of the Milky Way. I'm here to watch thunderstorms unleash their majestic power. I'm here to watch sunsets and sunrises. I'm here to feel the cool breeze on a summer's day. I'm here to learn and to understand. I'm here as a way for the universe to contemplate itself.

What's the longest you've used a single smart phone? (Boost for a broader data pool.)
