I’m looking at the desktop browser usage breakdown and people, I am horrified. Not only is Firefox’s usage share a paltry 7.95%, but freaking SAFARI is doing better with 10.11%. Then there’s the fact that Blink-based browsers are dominating the market.

If you’ll excuse me, I have to find me some Prozac.

That’s GZdoom?! They really pushed the engine to its limit, didn’t they? I am very impressed. I have to play this when it comes out.

That was a terrible joke.

I love it.

That’s rough. Then again I didn’t see any marketing done towards this game. The fact that it’s reportedly mediocre doesn’t help at all.

What, all of them?

MagnetDL, what the fuck?

I have Nextcloud on my server, but my posteo account came with a free encrypted calendar, so I’m using that. I might migrate once I’m feeling less lazy.

Sorry for the late response, but I’m actually not sure, because I haven’t tried it yet. I came across OpenBVE, because I wanted to know whether Linux has native train sims or not.

No worms in the box. Good. But then, what is a grub box?

He didn’t have to do this, but he did it anyway. What a lad!

But I agree in so far that some people seem to think that Cyberpunk is somehow cool/desirable, despite being a description of a near-future dystopia.

Well, I can see the problem if that’s the case. Cyberpunk should never be desirable. It looks cool, sure, and it makes for some great stories, but one should never forget that it’s only a setting. It works in a story-telling perspective precisely because it’s a dystopia. You need something for the protagonist to struggle against and what better force than the entire world around them? It should never, ever be some sort of goal to strive to.

If there really are people who want to make cyberpunk happen, then they have issues. Our world is plenty dystopian right now as it is, there’s no need to make it extra grim.

Did cyberpunk kill your parents or something?

Aww yiss. I’ve been wanting a good roguelike deckbuilder like Slay the Spire and this looks like it’s right up my alley! Slay the Spire is amazing gameplay-wise, but I cannot get over that butt-ugly early 2000s flash game art style. Klei games, on the other hand, are almost always visually stunning. I’m hyped.

PineTime is almost the perfect smartwatch for me. It certainly is the one that comes closes to what I want: open hardware, supports open-source systems and knowing Pine64, they will most likely be selling spare parts too, which would be amazing.

The one thing I’m not a fan of is the form factor. Once development is further ahead, I hope they will have a model with a thinner screen, about the width of the strap, along the lines of this.

Give Vanilla Music a shot. I install it on every Android phone I own, even if the phone came with a default music app (which is usually shit). It also has a couple of add-ons you can install through F-Droid like plugins for lyrics, cover fetcher, etc.

Yeah, don’t bother. Emuparadise was amazing while it lasted, but they took down all ROMs in 2018 due to legal struggles. Nintendo wasn’t explicitly named, but is likely the culprit.

Luckily there are alternatives.

Uh, whoops. Guess I should’ve done a reverse image search.

That reminds me of this picture. The insane amounts of energy required for mining is a problem that we need to tackle. Bitcoin is still the gold standard, but it’s time to move on to other, greener coins.

Just don’t ask me which ones, I’m still figuring that one out.

The most anonymous way possible to buy on eBay?

I know eBay is horrible and so is PayPal, but after OpenBazaar shut down, I don’t know where else to look. …

Sony, it’s cool if you want to copy Nintendo, but not like this…

It’s old-ish news, but still worth a watch. Sony has made some… questionable moves over the past few years…

I came across this page comparing XMPP and Matrix. Would love to hear your thoughts.

It doesn’t paint a very good picture of the matrix protocol. Does the comparison have any merit?..

Terraria 1.4.1 has arrived to consume even more of your free time.

Worth noting is that this includes the FNA update, which should fix most issues on Linux and Mac that were introduced in 1.4…

Any good gaming channels on Peertube?

In light of Invidious getting shut down and getting mixed results with using Freetube, I have decided to ditch or at least attempt to ditch Youtube. However, I enjoy watching let’s plays and videogame reviews and the like, but I can’t seem to find any Peertube channels with such content. …

Epic violates Apple's terms of use, gets Fortnite banned from App Store. Then releases a video mocking Apple.

I’m not even going to pretend I’m not biased. This is just petulant on Epic’s part. The video in question: …


Annoyed? Why would I be annoyed by a captcha that gets in my face every 5 minutes? I’m FINE…

Et tu, Startpage.com?

Linux kernel "rapidly proceeding down an unstable path" according to Hyperbola Linux

I was looking into Hyperbola Linux, when I came across this post. In this post it is outlined why Hyperbola Linux is switching to a BSD base. A bold move, but I hope it works out for the team. …
