Long form rant about my issue with the political messages of Cyberpunk, the transphobic erotic poster from the game is attached 

@ben I'm genuinely upset at this, some techbros who didn't talk to anyone adding a genital slider to a game. Like that's the trans the experience, your genitals; game characters usually don't have genitals at all but trans right? Oh no, there's no non-binary options or anything, and your voice is tied to your pronouns so no husky voiced women or effeminate men. Can't have a flat chest as a woman either. But yeah, genitals.

And yet, it still gets worse. There's no trans people in the story at all, and there's just one queer coded character. A sick unsavory doctor, who does unsavory things to people, who gives people unsavory feelings. While they sexualize our bodies with this one single deranged poster that is simply plastered everywhere!

And then everything else, a black and white political system where bad guys are just deranged maniacs to be slaughtered at will. Where execs promised there would never be crunch time; after a year of crunch time had passed; preceding three years of crunch time. Where you have no choice but to work for cops to take down bounties. How is this cyberpunk? How is this Cyberpunk?
Why do I like minimalist software?

It clears up space for the fucking web browsers

Virtual Box is still the easiest to use VM software for Linux and that sucks.

libvirt has being a pain in the ass to learn and some of the tooling straight up doesn't work (at least on my system). I've also yet to get proper mouse support working or clipboard sharing.

Child spends $16K on Mom's iPad on micro-transactions in predatory games.

Apple refuses to refund the payments.

HN commenters blame the mother.

Presumably so that they don't have to reconsider their own predatory business tactics.

how do i add the ">" to my vim when the warping is disabled??? the left image is my vim and i want it to be like the right image...

Why is it so hard to find games I like? It super annoying.

Watch "The CIA is a terrorist organization", a video which is being censored and suppressed by YouTube and which caused the producer to be deliberately intimidated by the Department of Homeland Security for their "anti-american" sentiments

If you complained about the recent takedowns of youtube-dl or widevine-l3-decryptor, I would recommend you join me in celebrating International Day Against DRM!

Because this isn't anything new, it's only faced a little resurgence over the past month. Whether we like it or not, international law humors their arguments.

How about checking out some of my recommendations?
How about showing we don't need DRM or capitalists to fund & promote our entertainment?

Fedi Game 

Astrobotany is a simple text-based(also (very)simple graphics) gardening game that takes place in geminispace.
It has about 100 players.

You plant seeds and tend them and there's a message board. That's it!

It is _very_ slow-paced and is probably more social than anything else.

You will need a gemini browser(Castor, AV-98, Geminaut, etc) to play it. Your browser must support certificates.


Most of the people playing have a Mastodon/Pleroma presence.

#Gemini #Games

So 18% of the population of India organised the largest general strike in history. A quarter of a billion people. 3.2% of all living humans on planet Earth. And the English speaking world is mostly just... not paying attention?

is borked. It has a substantial memory leak and bad screen tearing problems.

Someone I know wants to try out Mastodon, but he doesn't know English. Is there:

A) A way to look for users speaking a particular language?

B) A Polish instance that's well moderated (no bigotry allowed on there)?

Please boost, even if you don't know 😓

#mastodon #help

@sir after you shutdown your mastodon instance are you planning on leaving the fedi all together? If so, are you going to use something else instead? If not where are you moving?

anyone knows about a libre scripting tool for android? That would be neat (like ankulua but FLOSS)
