looks like micro$oft have deprecated support for my (their?) webcam, the vx1000, so future streams will have 100% less of your favourite sweaty boy and 100% more silence punctuated by sipping noises, perhaps for the best.

well, it's saturday morning and i'm going to try streaming on caffeine for the first time with some pubg.

join me in: Very Quietly Not Gameing Very Good.


someone came on stream to ask me what games i like, whether i play fortnite, and if i could please follow them. when i ignored the latter request they accused me of bullying and left.

ah, gamers. don't ever change. please change. please please change.

i'm enjoying the mythical double stream and may continue in the foreseeable future.

well i've got a glass full of unused cooking wine and it's the weekend so let's stream some doom ii (1994) why not.

continuing where i left off, the No End In Sight *mega-wad* at E2M5.

i think i'll probably finish this episode of No End in Sight on stream, then do the last one on my own. they're long slogs and i'm not adding anything to The Discourse.

~ doom ii (1994) ~
alright, i think i'm done streaming No End in Sight for now, E3M8 was straightforward & finished in <1m & i'm not sure i can take the emotional strain of another ep atm.

the mod is a beast.
E3M7 Netherworld Cathedral is a beast.



i mean look at this.
you look at it.
but you don't understand.

*thousand-yard stare*

no one can understand.

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read. Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users. * you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp) * they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts" * if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time) * the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers. * there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here * When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here * 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful Important Bit from the Privacy Docs: If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet! Our beautiful icon is based on photo3idea_studio from www.flaticon.com, licensed CC 3.0 BY. It has been modified by @casey@friend.camp!
