My life goal is to retire early, and by not having a job, being able to use OpenBSD full time and work on the system

@dosnostalgic I remember playing this. It was not very popular in my area. Was this game obscure or more well known in general?

@amolith
Thank you for sharing this. I will try it with my personal server. I also get all emails silently dropped with no error.

Thanks to incredible hacking by sigrid we're streaming natively from Plan9 9Front on twitch.tv/sdfpubnix right now! Working on getting ffmpeg peertube support and may test this today. Join us for video only native live streaming

Apple will install a back door to Messages and will scan your photos on-device against an inscrutable and unauditable database. Extremely bad news. Others will follow (or are silently doing it already) and there is still no good alternative to Apple/Google’s ecosystems.

Another keyboard layout aimed to reduce RSI. The writeup is very interesting and explains the rationale, process, analysis and evaluation of the pros and cons of this layout.

Is it because I'm old and nostalgic, or did Windows 95 really have the best UI elements?

From 2017: "A group of bored developers and designers has decided to start a thread on reddit to figure out who can come up with the worst volume control interface in the world". Funny as hell.

@echo_pbreyer Wow, that is really terrible. Will try to do more research and understand the implications.

I am especially worried about backdooring E2Ee chats. I will... just stop using these services, which is definitely undesirable

@echo_pbreyer that looks terrible! Do you have a link where I can read more about it?

This is science fiction. It has many implications, yes, but let your mind be blown for a second.

@emacsen @draisinen_dieter very interesting! I was not aware that 3.5 was free.

In the end, what defines a game is the lore, as most systems are some variation of d20 or d100 rolls. That’s where dnd excels.

@mdhughes Sure, but I guess it's easier for people to relate it to 3.5 as it's more widely known

@cfenollosa Basic Fantasy isn't 3.5, it was the first retroclone of B/X using the OGL, it started the OSR. (There's also OSRIC, but nobody likes OSRIC)
#ttrpg #dnd

A free and open source RPG, basically a simplified version of D&D 3.5. Great community effort and nice production -- Is 3.5 "oldschool" now? 👴🏼

Check these out. You really should start using 'ag' and 'jq' if you haven't already.
