Unfortunately, he can never actually reach that point because the cubicle farm of X Neo has been replaced with a collaboration-enhancing open plan office for M/Z Neo, so he's caught in the first act of the film.

Agent Smith attempts to shoot him, but he just turns into a distorted billboard sprite of a Garfield JPEG and plays a clipped soundboard sample of "bullets don't work, Jon".

Thinking about The Matrix, but instead of Neo being a GenXer with a head full of Shadowrun, they're a Millennial/Z with a residual self-image born of furry VRChat shitposting.

Ikea saying the desk I'm after is in stock again and available for delivery this time, then changing its mind on the latter during checkout, is just cruel.

out of all adhd symptoms the lack of executive function is probably my least favourite

This was kind of a mess of over-wet dough of the wrong kind of flour I was using up and ran out of, and no precious yeast, but instead of forming rolls (it was unkneadable) I dumped it into a cake tin, and it seems to have made a reasonable light little loaf. :blobcataww:

@foophoof Nice. Maybe I should venture back up to my local one at some point, I used to do that occasionally in the beforetimes.

@fraggle Also I assume you must have discovered the shareware OS/2 DOOM port by this point in your exploring, if it wasn't the reason to install Warp 4 in the first place.

It has native GUI widgets for difficulty select!

@fraggle I do remember running some Win3.1 apps under Warp 3 because they crashed less, or at least appeared to. Maybe their reimplementation fixed that dimly-remembered memory mismanagement bug that snuck up and GPF'd you eventually.

The license that let them do that meant it always cost more than just buying Windows alone though, AFAIK.

@fraggle No, it was unstable as hell on real hardware too. Of course, contemporary Windows wasn't much better.

IIRC Warp 3 was overall a more coherent (and stable) thing, but is even more grumpy about VMs. It had a CDE-like WM instead of everyone rushing to, ahem, "make it more familiar to converts from Win95".

I can't remember what Mandrake(?) of the era was like, other than tooling around with KDE settings. And you can't even set modelines for that work with VirtualBox. :blobcatgooglyshrug:
