Low content mode for a while…

§ March 1st, 2020 § Filed under eyeball, low content mode § 8 Comments

…as my left eye (my allegedly “good” eye) had a little more bleeding, and it’s a little too rough on me to try to do extensive typing with only my diminished-vision right eye to check for typos. So let me rest the week and we’ll see where I’m at around Thursday or Friday. Or maybe it’ll all wash out right away and I’ll be back on schedule. Who knows?

Also, on March 9ths I’ve got to go in for jury selection, so I may not have a post for that day…and depending on whether or not anyone actually wants me on a jury, that may affect my schedule afterwards, too. I’ll keep you posted.

And I’m sure I’ll be griping on Twitter about stuff, so you can always find me there, or you can drop me an email.

Talk to you soon, pals.

    Tell them about your eye problems at jury selection, and maybe they’ll take pity on you.

    Seriously, though, wishing you a speedy recovery!

    And if not the eye problems, then being a small business owner with no employees to cover your absence could work as well.

    At least it did with one of the people in the jury pool I was part of a few years back. But not me, I wound up having to help decide a medical malpractice suit.

    Good call on Q-Bert, Popeye, Defender. Not as good as the arcade versions, but quite playable (especially Defender, which I could play until my eyes bugged out).

    I don’t feel the Donkey Kong adaptation was so hot, but Donkey Kong Jr. was good.

    Of course, best Atari 2600 game wasn’t an adaptation at all, but Activision’s Pitfall. Still look back fondly on swinging across those vines, jumping over scorpions, etc. Great example of a creative use of very limited graphics and memory.

    Get well soon. If you get picked for jury duty, bring along some issues of “Crime does not pay” to read.
