Pinned toot

Hello Fediverse. My name is Emanuel - i am an 80's computer kid. Worked in IT since the middle of the 1990's, mostly in eCommerce and video games. I have a burning passion for: my family and kids, programming, digital content creation, demoscene (my handle is "tubo") , IT security and privacy protection, system tinkering and hacking, video game system hardware and many things more. Author of the Retrochecker video game collector app ( @retrochecker ) and the HAM GBA devkit.

RetroChecker 2.1 is out on the iOS AppStore now, make sure to grab this update - many usability improvements, new layout on Product Detail pages - especially useful on small screens. Video Preview: tube.schleuss.online/videos/wa

Retrochecker v2 has finally made it and is now available on the iOS App Store. To celebrate this major release, the App will remain FREE until Friday. apps.apple.com/us/app/retroche

Pushed Retrochecker v2 into Appstore review just now. Let's hope it will launch shortly. Hundreds of improvements. I think my app is the best retro collector app full stop. :-)
More info: @retrochecker Btw, it works OFFLINE and does NO tracking. You can even turn off image loading and other online features. Core functions still work in flight mode.

System checkups / battery conditioning on the weekend. This Nokia ngage running Call of Duty :-). I feel like using this as a phone for a week. Good old times.

PSA: New public service - Bibliogram, an alternative frontend for instagram: insta.schleuss.online

I may soon switch the composition of my @itnewsbot and @itsecbot - the aim is to exclude consent/reg/paywall sites that block you from reading the article.

After a very long time, I will finally be able to push a major @retrochecker update. Hundreds of improvements have been made. No tracking! All the basic functionality works offline. Hopefully launching in the next days!

Essential Tools i still like very much after using them for 10+ years :
- Little Snitch (OSX)
- Total Commander (Windows)
- Logic Pro (OSX)
- Emacs (anywhere)

What are yours?

Ouch. Just discovered my RetroChecker app won’t work on iOS15 for now :-/. (Adds to TODO list)

Video Game tip - Shantae - half genie hero by Wayforward. Incredible production values, one of the best side scrollers on WiiU. Great playing with the family, amazing soundtrack

to kick things off, i have lodged a GDPR information request. As a service for you, here is the template i used - why not also file a request? :-) md.schleuss.online/pTr7ywRRTvW
