• 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…

  • Windows 98 is my childhood OS.

    Time flies so fast. I can’t believe it’s been so long since Windows 98 was first released. I still remember how excited I was when we got our first computer sometime around the 00s. It had a Czech-language copy of Windows 98 on it. I still have an old XP-era computer in my room that…

  • I was stopped by a security guard at Tesco for the wrong reason.

    Yesterday, I was shopping at Tesco. All was fine until I got to self checkout, as I always do. You see, our checkouts have the quantity option, which allows me to enter multiple pieces of a single item at once without having to call staff. Everything went normally, as it always does, except when I…

  • No more running out of alcohol swabs for me.

    A month ago, I was starting to run out of isopropyl alcohol swabs. I use them pretty often—they’re good for more than just cleaning the skin prior to puncture. For example, they can be used to dissolve sticker residue, among other things. Recently, an idea came to my mind: what if I got a roll…

  • Installing Red Hat Linux 6.2 in VMware Fusion

    Howdy, fellow readers! Here’s yet another tech-related blog post of mine, in which I’ll be documenting how I installed Red Hat Linux 6.2 in VMware Fusion, though it should work with any VMware product. For some reason, getting older operating systems to run at least somewhat nicely under newer virtualization software feels kinda pleasurable to me. If…

  • Wikipedia’s village stocks – I can guarantee you’ll have a good laugh!

    So, I was just casually browsing Wikipedia out of boredom and came across the Village stocks. The silliness and insanity Wikipedia admins are sometimes capable of is pretty darn hilarious, I couldn’t stop laughing! You can give it a skim here –> Wikipedia:Village stocks – but I won’t be held responsible if you wet your…

  • I flew for the first time in my life.

    Yes, the post’s title says it all. A week ago, on the 16th, I boarded a 737-8AS (Ryanair). Yes, I did enjoy the flight. It was fun, getting to the Czech Republic from Slovakia in around an hour or two. We also visited a friend of ours. The visit was great, I got to play…

  • Compiling Code-OSS from source

    Compiling Code-OSS from source

    Howdy, fellow readers! In this article I’ll be talking about my experiences of compiling a copy of Code-OSS (the open-source version of Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code) from source. Feel free to read on if you’re interested! Preparations First of all, obviously, I had to get the source somehow, so I cloned the official VS Code…
