The fifth Questing For Glory RPG speedrun marathon is starting right now over on the RPG Limit Break twitch channel: twitch.tv/rpglimitbreak

First game is Legend Of Dragoon. I think the marathon runs this whole week. I like RPG runs & I like the RPGLB crew so I'll be watching this when I can.

Watched the latest RLM video, the one about the movie "After Last Season" (2009), and I'm kinda dismayed that I really want to see the movie now. It looks... bad, but also intentionally alien and weird, two things I like. It made me think of Saul Bass's movie "Phase IV" for some reason.

Today I learned that the Quake mod Arcane Dimensions has a nice clean implementation of a grappling hook. It works a bit like the old hook that came with the QW CTF mod.

Which is good because I definitely couldn't figure out the math for a grappling hook on my own.

Music shopping today. Picked up Submolecular by Scape One (there's a deal on it right now), two EPs by Vektorspace, NULLPTR's most recent EP (from July of last year), an EP by Docta Gee, and preordered Breakbeater / Detronic by Paradox.

A little over 20 USD. Good haul. Excited to play the Vektorspace & NULLPTR soon, and the Detronic when it releases.

I am happy to report that the MSI PRO B550M-VC WIFI motherboard works nicely with 13.1.

All the board functions I've tested so far have worked. Both SATA controllers (chipset and additional ASMedia ASM116x), ethernet (RealTek 8168/8111), sound (RealTek ALC897). I believe the WIFI is supported by iwlwifi(4) though I haven't tried it. Bluetooth appears to be unsupported.

Finished "Rum Punch" by Elmore Leonard today. My second Leonard after Get Shorty. His books really fly by, they read like they've been skillfully reduced to the bare essentials. Great dialog of course. I enjoyed it but I don't think I'd want to read his books quickly, one after another.

Upgrading to FreeBSD 13 in preparation for hardware upgrades in the near future. Been putting it off for months.

This means I have to say goodbye to the bktr driver (and my old PCI Hauppage WinTV), it was removed from 13. I'm sad to see it go.

I didn't realize this was episode 303 until a few days ago; up until that point I had something way more mellow planned.

And pardon the loose mixing in this one, I've got no idea how to work with acid (or house or most anything four-on-the-floor).
