TheEntity,

Ah yes, a "vampire survival game", my favorite genre. If only it would at least be related the some game that sounds similar to that, hm...

TheEntity,

You cannot let or forbid a 16yo to use stuff. You can only decide whether they will do it in the open or in hiding. Personally I'd rather have them talk to me about it than hide it from me.

TheEntity,

Whether it works or not, this looks incredibly fun! That's a win in my book.

TheEntity,

I'm still confused why people are so hell bent on using a single window exclusively. It's a natural way to group the tabs and it was there from day one!

TheEntity,

I do not have a contract with you and I do not consent to paddling off these two hours of my life I'm never getting back.

TheEntity,

The source got pulled off Github already.

TheEntity,

them trying to get out of ever having kids

As if it was a bad thing. Or the doctor's decision for that matter. If they don't want to have kids, it's well within their right to keep it this way.

TheEntity,

Until it's proven the data is E2E encrypted, it's a fair assumption it can be read by a 3rd party, either now or in the future. E2EE is the only proof that matters, everything else is just a corporate "trust me bro".

TheEntity,

The only thing we know without a proof is that they might be doing it. We don't have a proof they do it but we also don't have any proof they are incapable of doing so. A reasonable course of action would be to take precautions against it while not condemning them either, until they are either proven actually guilty or actively unwilling to up their security, which would also strongly imply the former.

TheEntity,

Looks like a boring update but being boring is kinda the thing I appreciate in GNOME. It's all about expectations.

TheEntity,

I'm sure we can compromise on a mandatory database of registered AI-generated content that only the corporations can read from but everyone using AI-generated content is required by law to write to, with hefty fines (but only for regular people).

TheEntity,

Single tweets are rarely useful without being able to read some context that isn't visible without logging in.

You can only pick 2 games from steam to play for the rest of your life, what games are they? (sh.itjust.works)

I have a large library of steam games, but yet always come back to Garry mod and ravensfield. I keep coming back for the modded content and every other game is excellent, don’t get me wrong. But a lot of big games like RD2 and watchdogs 2 just seem like such a long time investment. What 2 games do you infinitely come back to?

TheEntity,

The same could be said about any game with any non-Steam availability. I don't think that was OP's intent. That being said, emulators surely were not the intent either.

TheEntity,

It still needs a phone number for registration. You just don't need to share it with people you want to talk with.

I'm tired with all this Big-Phone-Elitism

I’m someone with relatively small hands, plus I want my phone to be on the smaller side since I prefer to use my tablet/computer/tv to watch content. But this trend where many manufacturers tend to keep futures away from smaller phones to drive people to bigger phones is driving me crazy and really makes it hard for me to buy...

TheEntity,

But wouldn't a case do exactly what you want? It would make the damn thing thicker and flat on the back.

TheEntity,

I hope they plan to include Glaive Master Hodir this time.

TheEntity,

If he's being a putin stooge because it's good for his business, he's still being a putin stooge.

TheEntity,

A mixture of NixOS and Debian, depending on the machine. NixOS is trivial to maintain and to keep predictable and tidy. When its weirdness is a problem, Debian is my answer. It doesn't get more normal than Debian.

TheEntity,

I'm pretty sure "SSG" isn't a part of his name.

TheEntity,

Still not a name. "My name is John Smith and I'm a staff sergeant" is fine. "My name is Staff Sergeant Smith" is just silly and makes a person look full of themselves.

TheEntity,

I just dislike the military way of doing... everything. So not surprising this part annoys me too.

Often we say infinite growth (capitalism) is not sustainable and reasonable. Can we also say infinite progressivism is also not sustainable and reasonable?

This question is social/political, and meant to trigger a nice debate on the negatives of imbalanced infinite progressivism we seem to be heading in social and technological spheres, ignoring science, practicality and reason....

TheEntity,

If you're asking about a personal opinion: any policy purely based on tradition is worthless. Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people. Just like any peer pressure, it's highly unlikely to produce anything but grief. If something is based purely on tradition without any other reason to exist, it's unlikely to be an optimal policy.

Back to the initial question. I don't think we can get infinitely progressive but we can keep subtracting the cruft of tradition until there is no necromantic peer pressure left at all. Mind that if something happens to be a tradition but still has a good reason to exist, it should be evaluated like any other idea in terms of being good or bad. I mean removing just one of the reasons to keep this idea. If it is left with zero reasons, it's out. Otherwise it's fair game.

TheEntity,

I think there is some confusion between tradition and well-tested processes. I'd hardly consider creating quality products a tradition.

TheEntity,

Making quality tools due to long-standing processes is definitely a different breed of tradition than oppressing minorities because they don't fit someone's "traditional" worldview.

To better illustrate my first post: The Victorinox craft isn't high quality because it's a tradition. It became a tradition because it's high quality. If we subtract it being a tradition, we still have a reason to keep making it this way. The same cannot be said about oppressing people, unless one literally views human suffering as value added.
