A friend of mine and I are thinking of running a Diablo 2 server, a game we love and that that also has a surprisingly large amount of players, given it's 18 y/o. Blizzard's servers are garbage, mined with bots and flooders, and I honestly don't see any legal or moral drawback in hosting a private, community managed server to provide fun to a very much still alive player base...

I stopped by some Linux gamers' streams on Twitch, and had a really good time discussing the state of Linux gaming and free software philosophy! 😋 🐧

@ChrisWere ever thought of streaming/recording games with subscribers? Crusader Kings II is free this weekend on Steam and it might be interesting for your audience...

Trying out an Apt-Cacher-NG server in an old netbook I had laying around for quickly installing updates and common software in fresh :linux: Linux :linux: installs (plus saving some bandwidth). I hope this works! 😋

Seeing non-tech and mainstream news sources recommend Linux as an option in lieu of Windows always makes me happy.

We need people to know there are OSes that respect your freedom and privacy. I mean not to mention the countless other benefits over Windows.

Just set up a rpi zero. You can configure the system when setting up the sd card so that it automatically connects to your wifi and that ssh is enabled....

Took a few minutes of searching to figure this out. Pretty cool. Already added syncthing and connected my laptop :)

Next will get a usb to micro usb cable to add a usb hard drive and set it up as a NAS as well
