A year later...

I wasn’t going to post anything because I like to keep my private life, well, private. But then I realized that the reason I refrain from posting here about my doings is just another form of oppression. And fuck oppression, right? I can’t really stop people from making…

Firefox is a pain in the ass

BF4 Maplist Generator

I have made what is potentially the last update to my BF4 Maplist Generator. It now supports the final expansion for what has to be the worst Battlefield release in the entire series. I also fixed the commenting system – thanks for pointing out the issue. EDIT: I see that there…
