Oblivion. 10% Playing, 90% Modding.

January 3, 2021 General

At least 2020 is over.

I've luckily been pretty safe last year and hope I can continue to work from home for a while in 2021, but I don't know yet. As I have to take public transport to work, I am really not looking forward towards the possibility of having to go back in person.

I am convinced that configuring your PC also counts as game and I don't even know if I am winning this one.
