The game is actually not bad but the gameplay is boring and repetitive: You just spam attacks on the enemies and then heal up by resting.


I only ever wrote manpages with roff. I don’t like LaTeX but at least I can be sure that there exists a LaTeX package for everything I ask for. If I used roff, I would fear that my problems can’t be solved by googling and that I would need to switch to LaTeX anyway at some point.



How to use yt-dlp instead of yt-dl with mpv

I use RSS feeds and mpv to watch YouTube without visiting youtube.com. This post shows how you can configure mpv to use yt-dlp instead of the abandoned youtube-dl. …




The RSS feed is actually “advertised” in the HTML source of the Signal blog:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS Feed" href="/blog/rss.xml" />

Sadly, most browsers don’t show this metadata to users anymore. The Firefox extension Awesome RSS changes that.


You couldn’t be further from the truth. I do like single-player video games (especially indie games) but competitive video games usually favor the players who practiced the most whereas the board and card games above have a low barrier of entry. My interest in Minecraft faded away over the years.


mpv is a fast and minimal general-purpose media player. It has thumbnail support via an external script. Playing a video backwards does not work well but you can seek forward and backward (even frame-by-frame) using customizable hotkeys.


In a voice call with three friends I regularly play:

game themes
Love Letter deduction, luck
Coup bluffing
Codenames language/words
Categories aka Stadt Land Fluss aka Tutti Frutti aka Jeu du Baccalauréat geography, words
Poker luck
skribbl drawing


In short: If 10 billion people were doing a speedrun every second for 100 years you have 1019 speedruns. The odds of Dream getting that lucky are 1 in 1022 so there is something fishy going on in his copy of Minecraft.

However, I totally recommend watching the full 40 minutes. The whole story is quite insane.



Thanks for posting! I found a solution on Stack Exchange when I did the same.


That bias is called “undue weight”. Wikipedia has a policy to avoid it.


That article is from June 2020. It would be terrible if the Internet Archive went bankrupt.

Eye-opening video which explains Nintendo’s new design philosophy by comparing Origami King, Breath of the Wild, and Odyssey to older Nintendo games and similar games from other publishers. …


I have read some of it and the other series about dogs and polar bears as a kid. I do not remember much of it but I liked it.


I think I played Shattered Pixel Dungeon in 2019. I progressed slowly but steadily.


My favorite was the archer.


It’s hard to put it away before you completed it. It took me 58 tries.


Shattered Pixel Dungeon is a fun Roguelike for Android.
