Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.

  • My new toy.

    So, after a few months of patiently waiting, I got myself a shiny new iPhone 15 Pro Max. I love it! In fact, I’m currently drafting this post on it: I’m really loving it so far. It’s the first phone I have with the pill Dynamic Island, by the way. I went with the natural…

  • Merry Christmas!

    How’s everybody enjoying this day? Let me know!

  • I just performed some “surgery” on my old PS1…

    I ordered a RePSX power supply for my PS1 a few weeks back (and received it yesterday), as the stock one that’s in it gets pretty hot and is less efficient. I also ordered a 12V power adapter along with it. Details below! Package contents The RePSX board itself is packed in an anti-static bag.…

  • Mastodon setup challenges

    A few weeks back, I set up my own Mastodon instance on a VPS. Normally, it’s not too difficult, but since I already had a LAMP stack running on it, there were more obstacles to get past! I had to ultimately use Apache as a reverse proxy instead of Nginx, as Mastodon recommends. Also, by…

  • I ordered a VPS some time ago.

    Howdy, fellow readers! I’ve decided to order a VPS a few months back. That means I can host Discord bots and a lot more! In case you’re curious, here’re the specs. Nothing too fancy: I have a LAMP stack + a copy of Webmin installed on it. For now, I’m hosting a MediaWiki site on…

  • It’s birthday time!

    The post’s title explains it well enough, I’d wager. In case it doesn’t, yes, you guessed it, today’s not only my birthday, but others’ too, like Liz Mitchell’s (Boney M’s lead vocalist) or Christine McVie’s (Fleetwood Mac), for example. Feel free to send wishes for me to digest in the comments below.

  • VHS video has its own charm.

    Am I the only one who actually enjoys the fuzzy picture associated with analog video tape formats? There’s something pleasing about it… Heck, I still record stuff onto VHS occasionally these days. Some of my VHS clips are on YouTube if you find it just as pleasing as I do: Hope you enjoyed watching the…

  • I’m happy I have an LED printer.

    Ever since my old HP inkjet started to break down from age, I was thinking about replacing it with a color laser/LED printer instead, and I’m very happy I made that decision. Here are a few reasons why: Faster The main advantage of laser/LED printers is their speed: they’re (usually) faster than inkjet printers. Crisper…

  • I can’t wait for tomorrow.

    Final Fantasy fans will definitely know what I’m talking about. 😉 I’m so excited to pick up my pre-order and start playing!

  • One of the levels in Crash Bandicoot 2 is absolutely infuriating.

    Long-time Crash Bandicoot fans will know what I’m referring to. Yes, Cold Hard Crash. The death route is a pain in the bum without a triple Aku Aku mask, and even then it’s a pain with all that darn slippery ice, especially when you’re trying to get both clear gems. Anyone else who agrees? Let…

Got any book recommendations?
