Wise words from Princess Nausicaä on showing kindness to refugees and foreigners, 2000+ years ago: "But this man is lost, poor thing. We must look after him. All foreigners and beggars come from Zeus, and any act of kindness is a blessing. So give the stranger food and drink, and wash him down in the river, sheltered from the wind" - Homer, Odyssey 6.205-10 (tr. E. Wilson).
If you need any #emulator recommendations, here's a list of my absolute faves:
- NES: puNES (https://github.com/punesemu/puNES)
- SNES: bsnes (http://byuu.org/emulation/bsnes/)
- GB(A/C)/Genesis: higan (http://byuu.org/emulation/higan/)
- PSX: Mednafen (https://mednafen.github.io/) (I used to use PCSX but had compatibility issues)
- DOS: DOSBox (http://www.dosbox.com/ -- best to build from SVN: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dosbox/)
- Windows/Linux/&c.: VirtualBox (http://www.virtualbox.org/) (but there's also Wine: http://www.winehq.org/)
I'm here to meet new and interesting people, learn about new perspectives on the world, and forge bonds with people over various shared interests. People here have been so friendly and welcoming. I find Mastodon to be such a fun and exciting new frontier, and can't wait to see what seeds will bear fruit over time.
This should terrify anyone. “Then I have an Article II, where I have the right to do whatever I want as president,” Trump asserted, before adding that he doesn’t “even talk about that because they did a report and there was no obstruction.” https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/454431-trump-boasts-about-his-executive-power-on-eve-of-mueller-testimony
U.S. Fascism, personal, FRIENDS: read this
As of today, the constitution does not apply to me. I do not have rights. I do not live under a presumption of innocence. I have no guarantee of a lawyer, or even a court date.
I, and so many other political dissidents across the country, now have no more protections.

Normally I don't repost Twitter statuses, but this is exciting news from byuu about bsnes v108, which is apparently imminent. https://twitter.com/byuu_san/status/1153353336285872130
Apparently ROM hacking is more difficult than I thought. All I want to be able to do is dump the translated Spanish script and translate it to English, then create an .ips or .bps against the Japanese ROM.
Anyone able to help with this sort of thing? Not sure when I'll have time for it in the near future, but it would be nice to have, and it doesn't look like a huge amount of text in the game.
Someone should totally do a fan translation of the NES platformer Gimmick!, because its music sounds stellar. Hmm... someone made a Spanish translation that perhaps I could dump and put into English. https://www.romhacking.net/translations/4277/
If it is public money, it should be public code as well. I support this call for more public code under a Free Software licence: https://publiccode.eu/
This is indicative of why I want to de-Google as much as possible. https://www.forbes.com/sites/emmawoollacott/2019/07/22/google-privacy-lawsuit-ends-not-with-a-bang-but-a-whimper/#3dc0a237164f
