Surely you'd want to wait yes? Do you really want corporations scanning your spending habits?

It is going to be share your data or no insurance.

Damn, these are dark times, just around the corner.

This will crush people. We think Americans have it rough. Just wait.

Is this going to give retailers access to account histories etc? Insurance companies?

I have not. In about 8 years I'll be ready to order a new soap, so I'll try then. 😄

Price is s big factor though. Maybe not to you, but to many it is.

However frequency also. If I missed a train in TW, there'd be another come along soon. So I want stressed, running to get the train. Missed it... no big deal.

$21 per NZ citizen to pay for that. That is not pocket change considering its just one of MANY costs required to run a society.

That includes every child, pensioners, unemployed, disabled person and others. The real cost per tax payer is MUCH higher.

How's the public healthcare in NZ? Public transport?

Can you please explain that? I thought the island proved it was true.

About bloody time. I just spent a month in Taiwan. It was about this pricing. Initially I was booking taxis, using cars. Then when I saw the price I just stopped, and went all in on public transport. Fast, easy and cheap.

If it's affordable, people will use it. Great to hear.

I saw this posted by Grumpy Gamer, who highly recommended it. So I took a look.

Amazing video. Totally worthwhile. The rest of his videos are great also.

I'm making a P&C Adventure, and this really helped me focus on "the horizontal slice" in my early stage of development.

So ddg is down, so I visit Google. It's been some years.

I just can't believe how poor it's results are, and how it's trying to suggest things it think I might also want (and failing miserably).

I just assumed ddg would be the lesser, but I use it for privacy. Turns out I'm wrong.

How long has Google been this bad?

Hi all, I really like the open source Linux application called DIA it's a diagram tool that handles flowcharts beautifully.

I'm trying to find an offline Android application that is similar to that, that I can use locally on my Android tablet.

Other software categories that might work include mind mapping, but anything like that really is what I'm after.

There seems to be a severe lack of this, I can't really find anything. I used to use freemind on Linux also, again a great application, but nothing seems to be available for Android.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them. Thank you.

Love's Messenger- Marie Spartali Stillman, watercolor and tempera on paper (1885)

Marie Stillman (née Spartali) (Greek: Μαρία Σπαρτάλη; 10 March 1844 – 6 March 1927) was a British member of the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Of the Pre-Raphaelites, she had one of the longest-running careers, spanning sixty years and producing over one hundred and fifty works, including Love's Messenger and numerous romantic scenes from the Divine Comedy. Though her work with the Brotherhood began as a favourite model, she soon trained and became a respected painter, earning praise from Dante Gabriel Rossetti and others.

So, I'm the kid that grew up with the originals. Hence I love the emulators.

However, I'm obviously now an old bastard and my vision isn't what it was.

I see some super cute emulators, but the screens are tiny.

Does anyone have recommendations for larger screen emulators, that play as many systems as possible?

I have an emulator or two on my Samsung tablet and it's GREAT, but, having the controller separate sucks to be honest. So I'm interested in the largest screens about, with controller built in.

Any suggestions would be super appreciated.

Note. I'm in Australia, so the Steam Deck is out as an option.

Hi all,

I have seen lately that the 'source available' N8N (which is excellent), has starting increasing pricing and restricting what you can get for your pricing.

In time, I can only assume this will get worse. Now, they deserve to get paid, and that's fine, but I had gone in thinking this was open source, but I see now it's not that at all.

This has led me to wonder if there's a true open source / self hosted alternative to N8N out there? Doing a bit of a hunt shows 'source available' alternatives, with a price point, and restrictions. I'm wondering if any team has tackled this in a truly open manner and if there's something out there?

Thanks so much

So I finally started it.

It's a fine game.

I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

I'm old. I'm patient.

Please, please don't mention spoilers if possible. I love to crack nuts the old fashioned way. 🙂
