Not a stats guy myself. At most, I get trophies out of something that feels a bit like OCD. Ultimately, I just want to have fun with my games, and not to boast them around. And tbh, one of the reasons I started dropping Steam was precisely the enforced social features (still use it, but now I'm finishing more games than I get instead).

Maybe inversion of sleep schedule? Apparently, that's common with ADHD. But, in doubt, seek professional assistance.

Same as the past 10 or so years, from what I can tell.

No demo that I can see, though.

Possibly older people and people with very specific use cases (like I did a few days ago).

First, I'd suggest flashing a community system ROM. OEM systems are both very bloated, and stop being supported much earlier than community ones, so they're not ideal unless you need to use it with some banking app or the sort. And if you don't need Google's services (de-Google, anyone?), I strongly recommend going for a vanilla system instead of a Gapps one.

Now, as stated in MargotRobbie's comment, one good use is as a media player. If you can sideload stuff like VLC and Librera Reader, you should be covered.

You can also use it for some lighter gaming, if that's your thing, as there's plenty of emulators, wrappers and engine implementations for Android.

You can also use it for running servers, if you do this sort of stuff.

And if you like to test around with softwares, a spare Android device is pretty good to have.

You also need to find instructions specific to your device on how to unlock the bootloader, and a TWRP specific to your device. From there, you do a clean flash through TWRP (erasing certain partitions and then installing the new ROM), and then, you should be good to go.

My "meditation" is singing along musics from power metal, symphonic metal, etc., specially the extra cheesy ones, like Blood of Bannockburn (by Sabaton), Keeper of the Celestial Flame of Abernethy (by Gloryhammer), The Phoenix (by Fall Out Boy), Defenders of Gaia (by Rhapsody of Fire), Venom of Venus (by Powerwolf), etc. Helps me with dealing with situations of pent-up stress.

One Piece, maybe? Pretty upbeat overall. Also One Punch Man.

Got a gaming laptop some months ago, and it is actually very powerful indeed. But it came with Win11 by default, only requiring the final setup. Now... How can a system lag a decent laptop so much.

Needless to say, it didn't take much for me to decide to swap for good ol' Mint Xfce, and even try out a few other Linux systems, and now, pretty much everything runs flawlessly, at most requiring to avoid using the ultra settings.

But indeed, Windows is bloat incarnated, and it only gets worse. So much so it even feels like Win10 on a VM can clog the whole system. Weird how that doesn't happen with Win7, no matter how long I leave it open on a VM.

Final Fantasy II is a good game. Yes, plot sux, but it's a NES game that was never remade on that aspect, so it gets a pass. But for people like me, who either (or both) like to powerlevel, and find enjoyment in abusing game mechanics and oversights, it's a banquet, specially the PSP version and the now-delisted OG Android and iOS versions.

Can't remember much now, as it's been well over a decade, nearing two, but what I do remember is that, when I was a kid, I had read "Raptor Red" that was lying in a shelf from my home, and I found it great.

Unsure what are those acronyms, but one text-only Linux program I can't recommend enough is ncdu: it helps managing storage in your system, as well as, indirectly, browsing your files.

Desktop environment Gnome é bem pesado. Recomendaria tentar usar algum sistema Xfce, já que é, até onde sei, um dos mais leves.

Achei que "i3" fosse de "Intel i3"... e.e"

No meu notebook antigo, Ubuntu demorava pelo menos 5 minutos para iniciar. Eu literalmente deixava ligando e ia fazer alguma outra coisa. Já com Xubuntu e Mint Xfce na mesma máquina, esse valor consistentemente caia para 1 minuto a 1 minuto e 20 segundos.

Although I'm not looking for such communities/magazines, what I would do is to increase the search scope to look for federated instances too, as each social media have their own vices and tendencies which may hinder variety growth, and federation allows for you to circumvent that while staying on your main.

[Repost from my post on Reddit] Some observations on porting Ren'Py games to the PS Vita

Since it seems that the Ren'Py PSVita Distribution Tool (GitHub link) lacks of documentation, I think it's worth sharing what I found and had to figure out, specially for non-PS Vita devs like me. It's not meant to be a tutorial, but if people find it useful as such, great! Also, I may edit the post later on as I test it more....

I'd suggest maybe trying to increase the scope of the searches for communities. Like searching for overall language and/or language learning communities. Or worse comes worst, maybe create a community yourself would be interesting too?

The ones I've used enough to have an opinion on are Kbin Social (current one) and Lemmy World. Out of the two, I liked Kbin the most for being the most minimalist. Even if Kbin is the most unstable/beta forum of the two, I still prefer it over all the visual noise of Lemmy World.

Dunno when/how a game is classified a classic, but since PS2 is from the 6th gen, guess I have some suggestions! =D
Ultimate Ninja 5 is pretty cool, I think. Don't like the anime much, but gameplay loop still feels pretty good nowadays. Only released on PAL and NTSC-J regions, though.
Dragon Ball - Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is also pretty fun, coming from someone that also doesn't like the series it comes from.
I guess Godzilla: Unleashed could count as fighting game too? If so, I recommend it too.

I think I found the name. According to the page https://www.chigozieobi.com/comingupforair, it is a two-pieces painting called "ADORNED (DIPTYCH)".

Oooooh~~

Preguntome si también hay una versión para Kbin

I check sites that list hardware specs, and once I find a phone that seems interesting for an average price I'm willing to pay, I check places like XDA to know how much of a hassle it'll be to unlock the bootloader and add a custom ROM. And if modding the phone has too many/too big drawbacks, I return to the first step until I find a phone that seems good.

And besides the discussion that brought the controversy, from what I can gather, Linux benefits the most from KVM, making using a virtual machine with some super old Linux system in it very viable. ^_^

Just checked your instance, and this page seems like a good start:
https://lemm.ee/communities?listingType=All&page=1

Then you can filter pages around, subscribe to pages as they pick your interest, etc.

Then, if it's anything like Lemmy World about sorting (can't verify since I don't have an account in your instance), you can visit https://lemm.ee/?dataType=Post&listingType=Subscribed&page=1&sort=New to check all your subscribed contents, and by newest (I recommend "newest" because I get the impression posts start repeating themselves after a while with other sorting features).

Yes. ( also just remembered there are some mix up in naming conventions across the fediverse... "<.< )

Still updating it. Just stopped commenting on each small update to avoid spam.

Might I suggest adding the Discord link here in the current community too?
