Pinned toot

Been putting off for a while now, so here goes.

I'm just a dude from the Netherlands. By day I'm a frontend developer at a hosting provider, by night I'm either watching movies, playing videogames or working on silly programming projects.

I have a modest collection of videogame systems and games, of which the Philips CD-i is my favorite. I care about the libre/open source software, games preservation and digital rights.

I listen and enjoy vaporwave unironically. :mike64:

sorry but i have to post this every time i run across it in my image directory

Game streaming services are the next step in DRM. The right to run code on your own devices is slowly being taken away. All major publishers/platform owners/hardware manufacturers are developing technology and services that make this possible.

Desire to yell at the void has reached a critical level
