Je suis pas sûr que ça passe, mais bon, si certains veulent tester…

If you care about the game Barony being compatible with OpenBSD or using a recent SDL version for your Linux distribution, could you upvote this issue ?

github.com/TurningWheel/Barony

Basically, the developers closed a previous ticket saying players should use an old SDL version with LD_PRELOAD.

But I strongly believe it's a temporary fix and that for durability of the software this should be fixed properly, so, if you could help my issue by giving some weight to it, that'd be awesome :flan_thumbs:

Game recommendation: Code 7 

This is my favorite game, so my profile would absolutely not be complete without a mention of it. It is a shame there aren't that many video games striving for this level of accessibility -- but at least we have great exceptions like this one!
In Code 7you play as a hacker trying to save humanity from complete annihilation. Gather information, hack everything, guide your partners through dangerous situations and earn their trust. Beware the AI that REDACTED
It is a text adventure, but with voice-acted dialog and pretty good music. It has autocomplete, subtitles and a mode for blind players.
If you like story-driven games with complex characters and plenty of twists, this might be the right game for you! Episode 0 is free, so how about you find out? :)

Plenty of articles on how to get into the games industry but not that many on how to get OUT of it.

I'm generally against corporal punishment, but I'm willing to make exceptions for people who write

Question to all my non German friends. Here, we watch a comedy show called "dinner for one" every new year's eve. I think every German knows that show, even the little ones.

If you are living outside Germany, do you know that show? Have you seen it before? If not, would you watch it again?

Happy new year and let's how that 2021 will be a better year!

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

My long-term plan for #FreeNukum is to allow custom data for graphics, sound and level data. Now that is fully written in #Rust, it was easy to hack together a quick prototype that allows loading of custom graphics tiles as a drop-in replacement that I prepared a few years ago. This allows to experiment with mixed original and custom tiles, as shown in the screenshots.

There's a new "experimental feature" being tested in Firefox 83: sponsored sites in the URL bar.

"Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the Firefox home page (or New Tab) that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles."

support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/s

You can disable this by setting `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.showSponsoredTopSites` to `false`.

All source code of abandoned software should be open sourced. Manufacturers should be forced to do so on the end of service date.

remember when programs were like

files

on the filesystem

and you could run them

this docker bullshit has me sticking my hands deep into systemd's guts and oh my god I miss 1990s linux when you could actually *understand* what something did
