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.

Author of the Retrochecker video game collector app ( @retrochecker ) and the HAM GBA devkit.

Does such a thing exist...? Any recommendations?

That moment when you click „I accept“ with standard settings on the verge and it „lags“ 5 seconds to update hundreds of 3rd parties and set a gazillion cookies / tracker JS. Thank god this is not my main machine.

holy shit. I did it. It actually works.

I have spun up a Pleroma instance on... my fucking Nintendo Switch. I don't think the Switch was ever intended to be a **webserver**, but hey, it's 2019 and there are lightbulbs with CPUs built into them soooo

It can be accessed at don't sign up if you want a reliable instance, since it'll probably be down 90% of the time, since I'd actually like to use my switch to do what it was intended to do and play games. :P
