I really wish I could cost nintendo money, I've not been happy with them for a long time, so their attacks on emulation can't really cause me to boycott them. But really , emulation may not be legal, but it's the only way we can reliably preserve gaming history without obscene amounts of effort and money rebuilding the hardware for the consoles and finding ways to get the game images preserved and loadable

Hi! I'll be playing some Slay the Spire and STRAFE on twitch.tv/sirsamsai in 15 minutes. See you there!

When you all tune in to the .XPenguin show today with @HexDSL and @archtoasty listen out for a special announcement!

Electron is really slow. My brother decided to make an electron app out of our 360 video viewer written in node and it is slow enough to become unresponsive at times.
Just running it as a normal node application doesn't cause any problems.

I dislike electron.

Pat the NES Punk covers the topic of Nintendo taking down a notorious ROM site. His opinions on the subject of game preservation, game collecting, and emulation tend to be spot on:


one big thing that Godot has over Unity for me is actual linux support

Yay, another Spectre and Meltdown style attack was just published. This one is called L1 Terminal Fault.


This is getting old. Apparently was onto something when they disabld SMT by default.

Google wants to know where you go so badly that it records your movements even when you explicitly tell it not to: https://u.fsf.org/2nd

Saw this on the bird site and thought it apt

"y'all pick one:

Hey Fediverse -- I need a logo designed & I've got cash (USD or EUR)!

I need it simple -- so it can be printed on stickers (it's primary function, tbh) economically -- but also (hopefully) eye-catch-y because the target audience already has a tortuous number of stickers on their laptop.

Corollary -- what small run (less than 500), probably die-cut required, sticker print shop should I be supporting (US or EU) instead of Sticker Mule?

boosts very much welcomed.

The problem with using the smartphone app "Voatz" to cast your ballot is precisely the problem with all nonfree software: you have no way to tell if your vote has been compromised or tampered with, because you have no control over how your phone works. https://u.fsf.org/2n8

People of the #fediverse, lend me your ears!

I come before you to propose a new hashtag - #BlogBoost were people can recommend their favourite blogs.

Not gonna lie, this is purely for selfish reasons so I can improve my RSS feed. 😃

I think #BlogBoost should be a link with a VERY short summary. For example:

omgubuntu.co.uk - Ubuntu, Linux blog.

I'll follow this post with my first #BlogBoost. Please join in if you're interested.
