I recently ended up with a Google Cardboard clone - namely, a Samsung GearVR headset. I'm not sure whether the electronics inside are broken or just too snobby to interact with my trusty Moto G3, but either way, it functions like a plain Google Cardboard clone to me. So anyway, as Minetest wouldn't run happily in side-by-side 3D mode on my phone, I set my sights on heavier VR stuff - namely Elite: Dangerous, the most solid VR game I've seen.
I complain about things a lot, so let's talk about something I actually like, for a change: the Haiku operating system.
I watched Eureka Seven recently, so to get it out of my system I did a quick sketch of Eureka.
Or rather, whoever designed it is. postmarketOS can't come soon enough.
The 13th meetup of the enigma expedition was on the 30th local time, and I missed both of them, and considering recent events, now seems like a good time to do some writing.
Laptops suck. That's rather hypocritical of me, as I'm writing this on my ThinkPad T420 running Haiku, but at present, you can't get a laptop that has a good display, is reasonably powerful, has a good keyboard, and doesn't have an x86 processor.
In the last Elite: Dangerous post I mentioned I was going to be participating in the Enigma Expedition. It's currently day 6, my Dolphin is landed in the Lagoon Nebula near Thor's Eye, and here's some more pretty pictures and videos.
I've been collecting videos of old computer stuff for a while, and I converted a few to webm and thought I might share them:
On the 24th I bought my copy of Elite: Dangerous for about $20 in the Steam Winter sale. I've taken a lot of screenshots so here's what I think and what I've done, I guess. This isn't my usual sort of post, and there'll probably be plenty of pictures.
