There's a gentleman on my instance who only toots in Persian. It's not a very large instance, the timeline goes by at a comfy pace, and most people just talk about Linux and open-source projects, and yet we have at least one person who toots almost exclusively in an entirely different language from me.

So now Blizzard have disabled ALL FOUR authentication methods to actively stop people from deleting their accounts. This is beyond disgusting. Spread awareness of this. #BoycottBlizzard

Always-online games put you at the mercy of the company. We can't trust streaming services or server farms to always be on our side.

I finally have a proper level generator for my . It's much like most traditional maps, with rooms, twisty little passages, and mold growing on the walls. Sacrificing quantity of rooms for size was the right choice, I think; it will allow for more diversity in the maps as time goes on.

By the way, just in case you think I'm being unfair by calling Alec Holowka's death a result of , check out what this fucker had to say, before his body was even cold.

The Zoe Quinn accused of rape killed himself earlier today following a campaign by her supporters. My anger can not be adequately described in words. Is it acceptable to admit that these guys have too much social power yet?

Given that #Linux is removing #floppy disk controller support, is there a discrete patch set that contains only the floppy controller kernel modules?

I'm sure more than one person wouldn't mind maintaining floppy disk controller patches out of spite.

Regardless of your feelings on , I think we can all agree the self-defense argument certainly holds water when you see shit like this.
