"Not a big advice giver, but under the circumstances. Don't wait around your life to happen to you. Find something that makes you happy, do it. Because everything else, is just a background noise." – from George Mason (24, Season 2, Episode 10)
about me & site
My name's parasurv! I like to write about the some tech stuff (games, Linux, etc), but I occasionally write about plantbased stuff, health and culture. If you want to know more about me, check out the ABOUT page, if you want to write to me, see CONTACT. Here some of the stuff I USE.
I revived my RSS, please subscribe if you want to read the latest blog post, microblog or linkblog shares. Thanks!
2021-08 - as always see site updates for detailed site log.
- Added the Dark Forces page. Included a guide to have crosshair and mouse look! Pretty easy to make.
- I got it! The Mission Impossible watch is on my wrist!!
- Linkblog for 2021-08-26
- Recently I got back into Quake, and I like to play as original as can be with Quakespasm, but I wrote a how to for Linux users, to make Quake Epsilon work, which is all high textures, and flashy stuff. It looks beautiful, and plays well (still need a stronger graphics card).
- Syndicate series and Ultima Underworld I-II is free on GOG for a month! Grab them, they are piece of gaming history!
- Adjusted some design elements. I want to focus on simplicity, and more on the text side of things.

Stories of Us: Kevin Sorbo - “This is an industry that screams more than anybody else for tolerance…but now all that stuff is completely a one-way street.” Kevin Sorbo speaks about the liberal Hollywood's tolerance of the non-liberals (let's face it, it's not just about conservatives, but everybody who disagrees with them).

I recently got into watch collecting. I currently have a black & bronze resin version of the Casio Royale (AE-1200WH-5AVEF), which I bought it for the utility, and a Casio A168WA-1YES, which I bought it for the look. My third watch is a Casio MRW-200H-4BVEF, which is the orange version of that line. The 4th and 5th one is the og. Casio F91W and its grey variant. My 6th watch is the new AE-1500 with negative display (which is beautiful and readable). And the latest one is the Mission Impossible legend, the Casio DW-290.
Looks like a saying is true: one Casio will never be enough. Hahahha!
My dream watches: a square G-Shock and the CasiOak (GA-2100 series). I am not really an automatic watch guy, probably because they are out of my reach, price wise, so I don't even dream about them.
Here are the things I like and worth sharing. It's not a bookmark system though.
- Favorite plantbased recipes (updated: 2021/02/06)
- Elementary OS (Updated: 2020/04/09) - btw, this is not my favorite distro, please don't use this, it's bad. Only use non-systemd distro! Better for head and machine. (also please read this in a Russian accent, thank you!)
