Also yes. It sucks that this is just what the internet is from now on.

I saw Javascript and thought "That would be pretty neat."

Then I saw the potential for C# and thought "O.O".

Not sure I'll ever actually go back to using GameMaker, but if I can use C# I'll at least be considering it.

I wish there was a decent alternative to MtG. D&D has about a million (better) competitors, but MtG doesn't have anything that I'm aware of.

I've honestly toyed with the idea of making my own CCG/TCG just to jump ship.

I'm playing my first PathFinder 2e game right now, and while I do prefer it over 5e, I definitely think there's a lot of opportunity to streamline.

Also I can't remember what exactly it was, but there was something I needed to do when leveling up my wizard that was hidden in the text of some paragraph in the class description, which was less than ideal, lol.

I've seen a lot of people recommending Pop_OS lately. Out of curiosity, what's the benefit over something like Mint?

"Still stands" means is impossible.

I think the way to go would be to give each slice a different radius, so you could see that they're layered over one another.

Does it get much worse than telemetry settings being quietly enabled? It's spyware at the best of times, much less when they get all sneaky about it. And I've definitely had them change privacy/telemetry options that I set on startup, multiple times.

I don't necessarily think they're stupid enough to come out with the full data harvesting machine on day one. They'll release what they can get away with - in this case, taking screenshots and storing them locally - and they'll boil the metaphorical frog from there. Maybe they offer more powerful AI by running it through their servers, and then they can start "accidentally" opting people into that "service".

I'm not even necessarily saying there's some grand scheme going on here, but nobody can possibly deny they have every incentive to push that boundary until it breaks, and they have consistently shown that they will pursue that incentive without any regard for user privacy whatsoever.

We know this because they have done it so many times before.

Y'know... I was more frustrated on behalf of my friends that still work there, but come to think about it, I used to work there too... well, heck.

And based on their track record, they will just quietly turn it back on.

Microsoft is so far beyond the benefit of the doubt they couldn't get back to it if they tried.

Picked up the Fallout RPG starter set, and I'm curious to hear people's opinions on it.

From what I gather, it released in 2021, but the first time I saw it was in the store a few days ago - on display no doubt due to the success of the TV show.

I've always been a fan of the Fallout setting, and from what (very) little I've read while flipping through the rulebook, it seems to be almost a mixture of d20 and Fate? The rules seem to have some crunch, while also allowing room for roleplay - again, from what I can tell at a glance.

I'm curious if anyone here has run this game, and what you thought. Do the rules make sense in practice? Did you have fun with it? And if you played through the example module, how was it?

Hi everyone!

I'm looking into self-hosting, and I currently have dynamic DNS set up to point to my home IP.

My question: is it worth getting a dedicated IP through a VPN?

I'm pretty technically savvy, but when it comes to networking I lack practical experience. My thought is that pointing my domain to a dedicated IP and routing that traffic to my home IP would be safer - especially if I only allow traffic on certain ports from that IP. Just curious if that idea holds up in practice, or if it's not worth the effort.
