If you are having problem to reach me there please send me a private message here. Been having trouble with OMEMO key exchange and still not sure it's a client side issue or something related to my old server.

I really wish that folks would stop playing games as a job. Not because that's unreasonable, mind you. But because their energy of turning games into wage slavery (and the catering that game designers feel compelled to do for it) ruins it for the rest of us.

funny thing how nobody mentioned gzdoom and zandronum, which seem to be the defacto engines in the broad doom community. That said, I stoped using both due to the insane feature bloat of lastest versions. I'm using crispy doom nowadays and so far it's been awesome.

One of the great failings of mobile devices is how difficult it can be to transfer data from your device to your computer. Mobile devices have a long history of this. Early mobiles, like Pilot and Handspring PDA devices, required special synchronization software (which you had to do religiously for fear of your device running out of batteries and losing all of your data forever). Old iPods required a platform-specific interface. Modern mobile devices default to sending your data to an online account so you can download it again on your computer. squeet.me/objects/962c3e1067a0

dev.lemmy.ml/ is currently down, seems to be a DDoS or similar kind of attack.

Yeah.

mmorpgs are their own unique type of addiction. I've really been enjoying my time with old school runescape this summer.

going back in time to explain to people in 2010 that an online bookstore is going to take over the world

and, ultimately, the fact remains that philosophy is one of the few fields that are accessible without special training. you can just pick up a book of plato or descartes or wittgenstein and come away with at least some understanding of what they're on about
