A symbol of creation and destruction and the struggle to overcome ego through #spiritual #contemplation, the Shiva Nataraja, or Dancing Shiva is one of my favorite religious symbols.

Ok. I managed to get #Fallout76 working on Kubuntu 21.04. My laptop has an Nvidia GTX 970M, so the performance was abysmal, but at least I know it can be done.

I had some issues getting Kubuntu to recognize … Continue reading Getting Fallout 76 to work on Kubuntu 21.04 →

I need to reread the part about the transformation in the desert, because I’m not sure how or if that really fit into the story’s world. It felt more like magic than science or evolution. The author … Continue reading Dune sequel books contain really complex themes and ideas →
Update: I was able to fix the problem and regain access to my character and progress. Here’s how. I had a conversation with #Bethesda Support about unlinking my Xbox Live account and ended the conversation with telling them directly not to do it because they told me it would result in loss of characters/progress/etc. in … Continue reading Bethesda accidentally deleted my Fallout 76 account →
Today is the two-year anniversary of the passing of our favorite cat, Thumper. I picked up a copy of this book a few months ago and hid it on top of the bookshelf. This evening, I pulled it down and my wife and I read it together. Even after two years, it’s hard to comprehend … Continue reading I love you more than tuna →
