Damn I hate having options

As I get older I find I just don't even have the time for AAA games. Other than Elden Ring, I haven't played a AAA game in goodness knows how long. 80-100 hours of playtime is basically a year-long commitment.

I love that there are so many indie games that offer a more compact experience and seem easier to put down and pick back up. Much more my speed these days.

I agree though that we're at a point of oversaturation. Steam is full of shovelware and barely discernable clones of crafting-survival games. But I hope the studios doing interesting work are able to survive this period so we can continue to benefit from their creativity.

Exactly right. The left/center share didn't surge relative to 2022 - it fell by 13%. Meanwhile RN surged by 60% in its share of seats.

So it's reassuring in the near term that the center-left "surged" relative to initial polling, but in the longer term it is quite concerning that the far right is actually the segment gaining ground.

My trans friends are what keeps me committed to voting Biden no matter how disappointed I am in him. Things are already really scary for them right now and I can't be complicit in making them worse, even through inaction.

My S10e is cracked but only all over the backplate. Which is also no longer really attached to the phone. I'm driving this thing into the ground.

Nothing convincingly demonstrates your iron grasp on power like being afraid of pretty plants

Agreed, the drops under the tongue are a lot easier to do at home than the needles. Though I'm not sure about delivery - for whatever reason my allergist always required me to pick them up in person from his office. Not sure if that's regulation or just a quirk of that one practice.

You are not permitted hot coffee, warm milk, or a yogurt drink. You are permitted 750g of cottage cheese, each day, for a month.

One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong...

I was expecting the article to provide a little more clarification on that point but I guess they decided to just leave it hanging.

My wife was more interested in the Louisa May Alcott house when she visited Mass for the first time!

The humor reminds me of early reddit. Very needy. Lots of Star Trek, Stargate and Linux. Of course there are a lot of differences too, but it does feel a little closer to the original techie reddit base.
