I hoped they warned them befor doing.
If they did, and #matrix kept ignoring it, that's definatly a way to teach someone a lesson.
The EU is going after Valve and others for "geo-blocking", a statement from Valve https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/the-eu-is-going-after-valve-and-others-for-geo-blocking-a-statement-from-valve.13903 #Misc
Finally got the Babylon 5 full collection. I think VHS was still a thing when I last watched the series. Only problem is that we no longer have any DVD players in the house.
I need to rip and encode these to something that I can stream2chromecast. Handbreak seems easy enough frontend for the job. Last time I touched an encoder Xvid was the best thing. Seems H.264 is a good choice now and maybe AC3 passthrough for audio? Does Chromecast even support AC3?
I see #rimworld has been officially launched a while back. Is it good?
I tried to play Dwarf fortress few years back but didn't get along with the clunky interface. Rimworld seems to have very similar game systems and would be easier to handle.

This is my first post on this instance. So I guess its time for #introductions
I first started using Mastodon back in 2017. I tried a few Finnish 🇫🇮 instances but they slowly degraded to unusable status. So here I am at Fosstodon! I've followed a few Fosstodonians proviously and I see this community is active and hospitable. I'm also a FOSS nerd so I think I'll enjoy my stay here.
My interest include:
- FOSS (obviously)
- Alternatives to Android (excl. iOS)
Internet denizen since when BBS's where a thing. Avid gamer when normal life does not interfere. General FOSS nerd.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
