It's even 128Kbps! Don't ask where she got it.

My new software assistant OC Ashli!

lol, Sony is branding their inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack as an audiophile thing

Whatever helps you keep the socket, i guess

I love that there's a Chip's Challenge 2 Steam trading card of an item that's only used in the tutorial level that explains it, and never appears again

I drew more D&D setting things tonight, which came out on my AD twitter- so y'all can have it too

Remember, it's not always fair to ask someone to CW their life experiences, even if it makes you uncomfortable. Remember, most Fedi instances provide powerful tools to hide topics that make you uncomfortable!

remember to feed the demons who live in the cursed blood rock inside of your computer every so often

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

I'm glad freerct.net/ developed further past the last time I looked at it, and OpenRCT2 existing didn't kill it

A good crypto debunker for the tech-inclined 

A Computer Science lecturer at Berkeley presents a lecture to immunise his students against the stupidity of Blockchain.

It has some eye-opening stats I didn't even know of like the entire Etherium Virtual Machine has a total processing capacity of 600,000 additions/sec that costs $250/sec to use. A Raspberry Pi 4 can do 3,000,000,000 additions/sec for a one-time cost of $45.

Are you ready to complete Ultima VI: The False Prophet?

Running in Nuvie, if anyone's wondering how I transformed that tiny postage-stamp sized world window into a full-screen RPG.

Nuvie is now part of ScummVM, so just install the latest version of that for the bells-and-whistles experience (or the classic original, if you prefer).
