Nerd content and
cringe since 1999
Alexander Grupe


Feeling stupid is refreshing.

In unrelated news, it was only yesterday, after nearly a year, that the wordplay in the title Cycle-Op dawned on me, when it was spelled out during the Meteoriks nominees revelation gala.

I mean… the title screen might have been a hint! :)

The other day, I realized the trusty old Amiga file manager “CLImate” is pronounced like, well, climate. To us, as German teenagers in 1989, it has always been “C-L-I mate”, pronounced “tseh el eeh mate”…

I learned this when binge-reading some of the numerous insightful and charming articles at and ended up at util disks. (Warning: You will get stuck on that site for hours if you love retro and Amiga stuff!)

Sweet! Worms VBI has been nominated for the 2024 Meteoriks Awards in the “Outstanding technical achievement” category!

My new 512-byte Amiga intro won 2nd place in the 512 byte olschool competition at Lovebyte!

It’s not a firework of effects, but very relaxing to watch: Read the strss write-up.

Sidebars and blog navigation updated, after several revisions. That shit’s hard!

Blog month and category center pages have pretty pictures now. Do they still call it “center pages”? At least in my time as a student webmaster we called them that… in 1998. :)

(Insert snarky “What’s a webmaster?” comment here.)
