rambling about con crud 

I am currently staying with some close friends in Edinburgh for the coming week and the last thing I need is being the one responsible for passing a cold or flu onto them. It makes me feel guilty for what could have been a pleasant week. This should not be happening. I am trying so hard to recover from this.

On that note, I'm going to test daily for covid. If I get a positive test I am going to be very angry.

I'm just in a bit of a sour mood about this after not having come down with anything for months, specially after I've travelled around to so many different events as well. This was my first furry con and it saddens me to see hygeine was not a priority. I still had an amazing time but come on, I could be in a much healthier state after the con if we all did better.

I shouldn't have to take risks to spend time with the people I love, I shouldn't have to take risks to meet new people. It feels like during covid lockdowns not much has been learnt at all about what everyone can do to prevent or reduce the spread of cold or flu. This should still apply even after the pandemic is "over".

to top this off, yes, I am immunosuppressed. I am at risk. I am complaining about this for a reason. Just because you may not be at risk of catching flu yourself does not mean you have a right to not make an effort and put others at risk who just want to go out and have a good time.

sorry for rambling about this but it's literally the one thing that puts me on the fence about going to these big events in the first place. I care a lot about my own health and others should take this into consideration too if we all want to be safe and have a good time, because it can make life miserable for others if we do not take safety into consideration. Spreading covid was bad enough as it was and I try my best to not be a part of the issue.

Also NOBODY WAS WEARING A FACEMASK. IF YOU WANT TO PREVENT CON CRUD AT LEAST MAKE AN EFFORT.

A common thing about the cons that you catch crud from is the fact that the venue's themselves are not very good with regards to air quality and they have poor ventilation. My personal opinion on this is hotels are not made with large numbers of crowds in mind so shit does get spread around quite easily. In comparison, I have never caught crud going to demoparties before because the venues usually have good ventilation and a lot more space.

This seems to be a common problem with hotels and I have no idea why they do it, it's literally a flu hazard

I'm probably going to blame the crowne plaza for this one, there was barely any ventilation in the hotel and the windows in the rooms were sealed shut so you couldn't open them.

aaaaand I've caught a cold from the furry con :(

Over the weekend I went to Scotiacon in Glasgow. This was the first furry convention I have attended and it was always full-on good vibes all around.

I made a lot of new friends and this has boosted my motivation to start going back to local furmeets post-pandemic.

Thank you so much @curls for funding the trip for me, we will definitely have to go to more furry cons together in the future!

I already miss everyone πŸ˜– maybe some day I will have a raccoon suit for cuddles

I received my first con badge this weekend! by @voidflame@twitter.com

Thank you so much, I will cherish this baby!!!! πŸ’œπŸ¦βœ¨

I also have chitter stickers, so feel free to poke me!

If anyone spots me at Scotiacon, feel free to say hello and give me a hug! I am walking around wearing a raccoon kigu with Miku

@halcy @pcy I wonder if there's any development DSi units out there that could potentially do video out

@halcy @pcy yeah, I've tried the software streaming solution for DS homebrew and, same for the GBA mode, it just crashes

@pcy @halcy I know for games exhibitions it's very common for them to be using development kits to show off games to the public.

@pcy @halcy if I recall correctly there's also been promotional material from Nintendo in the past (such as Nintendo treehouse) where they use direct capture from a 3DS. They exist but probably only within Nintendo so they're probably extremely difficult to get ahold of. Unless they're just using devkits?
