This is in response to the announcement on Twitter that I'll be in the next issue of Pico, an anthology of cartoon animal comics! The comic's called "Vidhoppers: Constructing a Gateway" and stars a three-person ensemble cast as they reminisce fondly about a game I fabricated as a pastiche of actual media phenomena from the mid '00s
Tiny Computer Chronicles (RPi4 Saga)
Oh hey, the 40mm fan grill I eBayed for $2 arrived from Shenzhen today! It's a little crooked but still fits great and adds character; I also did a half-ass job of removing the SSD label and added a sticker from my friend Chu. The Katrina evacuee in me is a fan of having all this in a pocket-size form factor; 240GB is roomy for Raspbian, but I anticipate adding even more storage to it as I upgrade the storage in my other devices (like my PC and Switch).
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX
I used to use Bulbasaur as a stand-in for myself in situations like this, but Phen recently described me as more of a Totodile and I can't say I disagree

Raspberry Pi 3B+ as non-Kodi media center
The C4Labs case came in and it took one evening's worth of use with the Scotchloks sticking out of the GPIO access port before I decided to snip them off and twist the wires together with electrical tape. And it still works, hooray!
As expected, the fan goes with this case incredibly well. I wonder if they make PCs with woodgrain panels often in Austria, and that's why Noctua fans ship looking like this
Apropos of nothing (really just my realizing the video upload limits are higher now): here's the video I made to show off the custom furry THUG Pro model I modeled as a gift for my partner @phenokage last year
Blender stream suffered a sudden loss of progress 45 minutes in due to system-level hotkey clumsiness on my part, but was ultimately successful after that! Here's where today's session started and here's where I'm at now: 🔸
Before I put this icon into retirement, here it is in full -- if you want one in this style, don't hesitate to commission my longtime friend @demoweasel (who does these routinely)
