it was tournament week and there was a lot to talk about and this post is one of the longest of these I've written because of that

As some of y'all are aware, I was laid off from my job recently.

Therefore I'm reworking my Patreon page to support not only the hosting costs for tenforward.social and dev.glitch.social but also my creative work like the podcast on twoshadesofbrown.com and my Overwatch League related writing on ultonomy.com and the music blog on irreverent.space.

My Patreon page is here:

Boosts on this post are appreciated.

Hi, I'm packetcat!

I have been on the fediverse since April 2017 so it feels strange to be writing a introduction post but here we are.

I am a huge nerd who is into video games, competitive Overwatch and computer networking. I have a podcast with my amazing friend @chosafine called Shades of Brown.

I also have a couple blogs, Asinine Tech and Irreverent Space.

Last but not least, I run a IRC network called EntropyNet!

buncha grime on my Discover Weekly playlist this week

I like it

"Fearless left the team due to illness at the beginning of 2019, and former Boston Uprising main tank Noh "Gamsu" Young-jin took over the position, helping lead the Dragons to their first win and eventually a stage title. The success of the Dragons inspired Fearless to improve while on the organization's contenders team in China, Team CC, with the hope of returning to the league."

that first win last year is in my top 10 esports moments list for sure

The past, present and future of the Shanghai Dragons by Emily Rand

espn.com/esports/story/_/id/29

this is a good read looking at the Shanghai Dragons

like I know I have a 5 year old base MBP and that is probably not helping things

but what is it doing that is so slow?

of course the updater doesn't say anything more than "installing" because this is a Apple product
