Do you think man pages are an obsolete way to distribute documentation and that we should stop caring about them?

I see more and more projects not distributing man pages, I suppose youngest generations doesn't use man pages?

A racing video game that is considered one of the worst of all time due to its opponents that don't move, the ability to drive through buildings and accelerate infinitely in reverse, and a notorious "YOU'RE WINNER !" [sic] message after each race.

tl;dr : Looking for linux distro recommendations

I'm looking at moving back to linux.
I had a dual boot ubuntu/windows for a while on my previous machine, but honestly, I'm excited to go back to it.

99% of the software I use daily is available on linux, and emulation exists for the rest.
So, realistically, I've got nothing really tying me to windows.

I'm going to try out a few distros in this week, mainly on vm I guess.

Any recommendations?

Just typo'ed a servername while reconnecting to an IRC channel, and accidentally put in libera dot net instead of the correct dot chat, and you wouldn't believe where I found myself: Back on Freenode. Who've apparently secured that domain, and are using it to try to trick people back on to their services.

So you guys remember all that bitching I did about how many third-party software licenses there are in the ? I found out recently that the engine has functions which give you a comprehensive list of all the licenses that apply to any given configuration you might be using.

I wrote a (messy) script that parses & displays this information in human-readable format for a game I'm working on. Maybe I'll genericize it later.

Dear #foss developers, you encounter an open source project and feel enticed to check out their community. Discord is mentioned as the only place where the discussions take place.

Your reaction?

A - Great, I already have an account anyway.
B - Ok, I'd be willing to join if the project is interesting enough.
C - Not ok, I will not be part of those discussions.
D - Other (see comment)

Boosts appreciated (research for blog post).

Usually I dread #webapps and their Javascript but in this case I'm actually pretty impressed. #WebGL enabling us to play quick games in spite of workstation restrictions is pretty rad!

Just a reminder - I'm running a branded #PeerTube instance geared towards putting original content on the network, in an effort to grow and curate the community. This instance is called #Spectra.

Spectra.Video is invite-only for creators, but federates with many other PeerTube instances. I'm in the process of writing and producing some of my own original programming for it, but I'm also looking for people who want a place to upload their own creations. There's no limit on uploads!

If you're interested in an account, please DM me about it, and I'll get you set up!

I've discovered something very nerdy about myself. I really enjoy and writing and having projects to work on. One of the most satisfying things about any of my projects, though, is incrementing version numbers. I love putting out new versions of stuff. It feels like placing a milestone in the perpetual evolution of a long-running project.

Repurposed a (very) old laptop with Linux Mint Debian 32-bit. Anyone have any game recommendations I can play together with the kid with my PC?
