Pinned toot


Started an alt for @FiXato here on to see if is a closer match to what I want out of a , feature-wise.
So, it's time for a re-introduction:

Who am I?

I'm FiXato, a stay-at-home father of a two-year-old I often refer to as .
While I was born in the Netherlands, I've been living in northern Norway for quite some time now.

What do I do?

In day-to-day life I take care of our son while the missus is at work, and when I have some spare time and headspace, I like to tinker on my various coding projects.

Aside from that, I like to play some mobile Android games such as , and .

Okay, cold tea finished off with some milk added, and now I have a mug of hot next to my laptop.
Less chance of me forgetting about it, but I'll have to walk back to add some milk once it's finished brewing. :)

Yes, yes, I know some people will think I am the devil for adding milk to .

I am not going to argue with them for being right about the latter part. ;)

#msx Track&Field 2 just arrived by mail. It came with a manual too.

The manual taught me only the RIGHT cursor is for running. --> So why have I spent my childhood pressing the LEFT and RIGHT cursors???? 😭😂

re: pet peeve about shops 

Of course they also didn't have the kind of diaper pants that we usually get for the 2yo... They had the right brand, , in the right size, but they only had 'open' diapers rather than the pants model he prefers to wear, and I find easier to put on.

pet peeve about shops 

If your employees won't spot your tiny discount stickers, then please start using bigger ones that they will see...
Second time this week that I buy something from that has a tiny sticker on it indicating it has been discounted, but not getting charged the right amount because they 'missed the sticker'...
This time I would've ended up paying 4 times as much if I hadn't asked for the receipt to double check.

Overall I like the chain, but this Mega is bad...

Let's hope the grocery shop I'll go out in the cold to, actually still has diapers for the little one...

Guess what I forgot again? 

Indeed, I once again forgot I had put the kettle on for a pot of !

That's been fixed now; tea is brewing.

Place your wagers on if I am going to forget the actual tea next. ;)
