Search - "retro gaming"
Thanks for the stickers - putting them to good use on my Windows 98 gaming laptop 😍 She's a beauty, fully loaded up with the classics like Doom, Sim City, Wolfenstein 3D and... Um... VGA Miner 😂19
This particular site appeared in the year 1998 with the goal to make gaming on Linux easier and more fun.
Unfortunately, 2013 the site went down due to lack of funding and time for the creator Bob Zimbinski. He released the database to the public but removed the code itself because it was created in the 90's and was a big security risk.
I want to resurrect happypenguin.org and I want some brave souls who want to participate with this. I am not a coder (I can only sysadmin) so It would be awesome if someone wanted to help out with this.
Would be awesome if you could make if look like the classic site, or make it very similar to it or https://distrowatch.com/ that also has a very retro style to it. It would also be great if the site was ad-free.
I will take care of the hosting part (servers, DNS, domain).51
Nostalgic times! Ain't it cute? Super NES was the best gaming console from the nineties...start the flame!21
I love how just a couple of mods can change 16 years old game into still legitimately good looking game and yet keep its original charm16
Buddy's b day tomorrow. Got him everything to build a retro pi gaming station and 2 retro controllers.
Damn, I am a good friend.1
Retro Gaming playlist by Spotify on Spotify is one of the best oldies playlists I found.
// Also remind me how old I am 😁5
I'm currently browsing for a new dev laptop, however I keep getting distracted by classic console adds! What classic consoles do you guys own and love?4
Brought my old "gaming/music/media" PC out of storage because of a video on Youtube thinking I could relive some glory days. 18 years old and she still purrs.
I do not miss this old "3D accelerator" card though... The only "Rage" in the Rage2 chipset was mine at not being able to play most games because ATI didn't think standards were important.6
I've build a gaming station with a raspberry pi for a supermarket. I was running a quiz i also created with red blinking lights for false and green blinking lights right answers. Featured by cool 8-bit retro gaming sound and score printing to win a small prize if you answered everything correctly. It was so much fun building it and testing it in the office 😁
My team decided to do a MOB programming in one of our tickets.
New joiner: Perfect we did a mob yesterday .
Me: Great, that's good. How did it go?
New joiner: Well, we work together in the gaming room next to each other and trying to solve the issue. I think it's very productive.
Me: Awesome! Let's do it again today... When we started the MOB, all of them are using their own laptop. And I was like.. so, this is how you did the MOB yesterday?
New guy: Yes.
Me: This is not a MOB programming... MOB programming uses only 1 screen, 1 driver and everyone work together, will tell the driver what to do, we need to exchange the driver every 10 to 15 minutes, everyone can be a driver. (devs, qa, ux, product) and do a retro after.
New guy: ah.. wow! Interesting.3
