"Not a big advice giver, but under the circumstances. Don't wait around your life to happen to you. Find something that makes you happy, do it. Because everything else, is just a background noise." -from George Mason (24, Season 2, Episode 10)


About me & the site

Hello there! You can call me writer13 or parasurv! I like to write about the some tech stuff (games, Linux, etc.), but I occasionally write about culture and health too. If you want to know more about me, check out the ABOUT page, if you want to write to me, see CONTACT. Here are some of the stuff I USE on my computer (aka the boring geeky stuff).

MICROBLOG is for shorter posts, many of them are just rants or just thoughts, that doesn't require a full page of separate bullshit. The LINKBLOG is for sharing me all kinds of stuff. Both are irregular things.

I revived my RSS, please subscribe if you want to read the latest blog post. Thanks!

New stuff

Started playing some console games recently. I am also working on a redesign, which is long overdue, as I usually do it annually, but I haven't done anything for the last 2 years, I think.

It will be more webretro, old school, as a I remember it, but with a touch of new. Currently I am debating, what needs to be in the menu, and what I will focus on, in the future.

Read / Watch / Listen

Some stuff I like to READ, WATCH or LISTEN to. I updated it periodically (but not much recently).

Notes

Console games with emulators

I was never really a console player, in fact I am a proud PCMR, however recently started to play some of the classics, like Silent Hill and the Resident Evil series. Consoles were never part of my life, because of the price, but now I am happy to play some of them. This page is about my experience. More…

Fasting

A new page about FASTING, first I share my short story, and I will add resources to help anybody who is interested. No I am not a doctor, just an individual who was obese/overweight most his life.

Wristwatch collection

Over the years I collected a few Casio watches, but I haven't bought anything in the past 2 years. I still love them, although I need to change straps now, but I feel like I don't need to add more. I have 6, and for now it feels enough, plus everything got expensive. If I have time I will write about them.

Wikis, how-tos, problem solving, past projects

Tiling Window Managers

Coming soon(tm)…

What is a tiling window manager? Who is it for? (hint: everyone)

Gaming things

Just a bunch of old games, either in original form, or modified to make it playable in the present. Full page of goodies: Old games stuff

Emacs corner

Emacs quickly become my favorite software ever, as it is versatile and can be used for lots of things. Full Emacs page.

Past projects: 52 books in 52 weeks

In 2022, I have started a long project. I used to read a lot, but ever since computers came into my life, they stole the attention from books. My aim is not just to read as many books as I can (with the minimum of one book per week), but also to reprogram my brain, and create greater focus.

Despite I finished this project early, I still add those book to the list I read that year:
