Wow, I knew that Blizzard games are declining since years, but the list of bad news here is an impressiv disaster track record. Far worse than what I thought

I believe a number of people responding have missed the "on replies" part... and maybe also the "hidden" part...

@Gargron

The hidden dislike option may be an idea for gauging user reactions towards a particular idea or post.

But the problem is that dislikes don't mean anything unless they are accompanied by verbal feedback, which, if the person wants to give, can always do so using the reply option! This would be constructive for the person who made the post!

There may not be any use from the reactions (dislike) per se! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Yeah, I'm stoked about the because even if I don't buy one, I'll benefit from the continued efforts for gaming on linux support.

So, #Linux๐Ÿง is still not for #gaming๐ŸŽฎ you think?
Well, Valve thinks it is! Check out #SteamDeck

New blog post ranting how software engineers are sometimes to passive about elevating each others skill in the team.

did the trick. The text was (as guessed by @benjaminpaikjones) being read as s, ave.

There was no distinction between kbd and paragraph, though.

Testing on might be the next to-do.

Is here anyone from Poland?
I will need to buy a ticket from Szczecin Glowny to Pล‚oty.
I will use a regional 'R' train, not an IC. Or should I better use an IC?
What ist the easiest way to buy it in the Szczecin Glowny station.
Can I also buy such a ticket in a shop outside of the station?
I plan to pay cash in PLN.

I feel like someone at Microsoft is watching KDE Plasma a little bit too closely...

Plasma's slogan since 2017: "Simple by default, powerful when needed"

Microsoft advertising Windows 11: "Simple by default, powerful by choice"

Really? ๐Ÿค”

Slowly getting back into writing blog posts.

Today, about what I learned while producing my first screencast series on youtube.

@ghost_letters @sotolf To answer the question about the fundamental flaws, a distributed database (such as a blockchain), is inherently inefficient compared to a centralized database.

To read or write to a centralized database:
1. Send your request
2. Authenticate
3. Authorize
4. Do the request
5. Get confirmation back

Doing this on a blockchain wouldn't fit in a toot.

This tradeoff can be worth it in low trust environments. The centralized approach requires a custodian that all parties trust

Consider improving the original docu instead/in addition to 'just' blogging about it.

Created 3 pull requests for Apache Pulsar in since yesterday, 2 about docu.

IntelliJ Live Templates are a fun feature. Now that I used groovy script in it, I expect it to get out of control pretty fast. :crazy:
