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.

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:

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? :-)

followup - here is a (tracking free) copy of a 2020 forbes article elaborating on what happens when ebay scans your local / LAN ports.

Sometimes i really wonder howto determine whether something is "legitimate interest" per the GDPR. E.g. if eBay cannot find a cookie on my machine, it ll use a service called threatmetrix to attempt a LAN scan (e.g. whats running on and beyond) from within the browser. I only noticed because LittleSnitch alarmed about it. I cannot imagine that this could be a legitimate interest. Any clues how to determine if could successfully sue them?

How different view points change the picture. Just a little fun bit for a grey morning.

heard of eBPF? If not, have a look. Allows to run apps in kernel mode, no reboot required. Interesting projects are emerging:
