this has been a pervasive part of homophobia for as long as I’ve been alive

homoephobes are cool with women being sexual with each other, not cool with men being sexual with each other, and hate when any same-sex long-term relationship exists

it sucks, but that’s probably why it is that way


40% wasted in America

steal from chains, there will be no consequences to any workers, you’ll have food, and they’ll still be a disgusting profit machine


absolutely

no amount of food you could ever feasibly steal would match the 40% of food wasted in America

it is a failure of society for anyone to go hungry, not just a child, and there are many places you could steal from that will go completely unnoticed


the bethesda acquisition also included Id Software and Arkane

not to mention there’s an ocean of difference between what is currently happening at Activision/Blizzard and Bethesda making a bad game…


I own… a lot of music on bandcamp haha:

I stopped paying for streaming services a looong while back and now I just buy things on bandcamp (or elsewhere if unavailable on bandcamp) and put it all on my plex server.


Not only that, but the best online store to buy music from (Bandcamp) generally will let you listen to entire songs, if not the entire album before purchasing.


Both are full IDE’s though, to be fair.

I have no stake in this as I don’t use any of these applications, but what feature do they have that makes them IDEs while VSCode is not considered an IDE?


At some point, where’s the line? What’s the feature that QT Creator has that VSCode doesn’t have? VSCode can compile, it can perform code analysis, it can debug, it can do code cleanup, you can search code by symbols.

I don’t use VSCode and I have no stake in this, but I’m not sure why it’s not considered a full blown IDE.


not like american supremacy has been a good thing, may as well give something else a go


I definitely prefer a magnetic port. It’s a bit of a mixed bag, because I feel like most magnetic ports are also specifically designed for a product and I’d rather there just be a single standard, but I’ve used a few surfaces/macbooks with magnetic ports and they were all a million times more convenient. I’m not super knowledgeable on hardware/connectors, so I don’t know anything about the feasibility of your proposal at the end, but something like that would be ideal.

My phone has a USB-C port and one of the biggest issues is that the charger tends to just smash lint/dust into the port and it has to be carefully cleaned out occasionally or the connection begins to feel loose. Every magnetic charger I’ve used has been relatively shallow, making this a lot less of an issue. Would love a magnetic port on my phone.


I thought it was real this morning when I first saw someone post it. I’m an easy mark lol


The way I see it is they got paid by Google and Google doesn’t actually get any benefit, because Stadia has already failed. If they don’t release, they break the contract, Google saves money and the devs don’t get paid. If they release, they get paid, Google loses money, and Stadia continues to be irrelevant.


I’ve personally had a lot of fun solo. It kind of depends on what you’re looking for. I imagine the progress is much quicker with a team, but I’ve had a good time just kind of shaping this world I’m in as I explore it and progress through the biomes. I’ve just got little unique homes littered and linked throughout the landscape and I think that’s really cool. It’s a really good podcast game and I don’t mean that in a negative way. I always like having a game that’s a little more open ended and without much story that gives me time to chill and listen to a podcast.


I’ll be honest, I’d be hard pressed to name many games where the ending wasn’t weak.


I’m living in Missouri and the tap water’s pretty great. I was told it’s so good because of the caves running underground, but no idea how true that is. It’s very good though, one of the highlights of living here.


This might not be true anymore, but I do remember a lot of DOS games that were updated to run on modern systems mostly just use DOSBox under the hood. DOSBox-X seems to be a fork of the original DOSBox.


Meanwhile, I got suspended on twitter for suggestion it was good that Richard Spencer got punched.


I’m also now using Standard Notes (also somewhat regrettably). At least it’s secure, but I do wish it maybe had a dark mode and markdown by default.


It’s an embarrassing name to say to people. I don’t know what you’d expect other than anecdotes.


I noticed they were shutting down Notes last week on GitHub. I wanted to use a sync’d markdown notes app that could go between my desktop/phone that I could trust more than something like Google Keep. Noticed the Android app was a closed beta, so went to go get the source code to compile an APK for myself. There had just been an active branch created with the sole intent of cutting off access to their servers.

I’m a little sad, never got to actually use it.
