I belong to the classic community looking to bring back pure EQ goodness using the original trilogy client (not to be confused with P99) Running like a dream on wine 4.0 eqclassic.de

ah that feeling when the sole dev calls you out in a forum directly for being stupid and you get all excited/warm and fuzzy that they even noticed much less talked to you

Kashmir Hill: "Google made the mistake of adopting the motto 'Don’t be evil' in a jab at competitors who exploited their users... [It has] demoted the phrase in its corporate code of conduct presumably because of how hard it is to live up to it." gizmodo.com/i-cut-google-out-o

guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?

bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/i

who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked

@rtwx @retrohacker @Matter well, Windows 8 needed a Microsoft account when I last installed it (years ago), so having to sign in is not that new.
I remember my friend having to register their legal copy of Crysis online when they had no internet at home, and had to bring their PC to their parent's office.
DRM follows no logic and is not there to make things easier for buyers.

My old daily driver getting some XDA use with my Tora-chan 🐱

Sticking with 4.19.x as I'm not using AMD and would like to stick with LTS for Slackware. Last compile I did I needed to re-enable TUN in the config as it had been left out previously.... VPN didn't work 😜
