I had no idea this is so much of a bigger problem in South Korea:
Props to the 42% (!) of players who are women, despite such an oppressive culture.
Holy crap, the rest of it though... remind me to keep SK off any future travel plans, like, ever.
I had actually gotten to the point where I was doing a right-click, 'Open Terminal Here', and then manually starting CLI vim on the file.
It took a few months, but it finally clicked - what the *heck* am I doing? XD
For the longest time, my desktop was set to open plain-text files by default in Notepad.
This would be fine, if it wasn't for the fact that I'm on Linux, and it was firing up Wine to do so.
Fiiiine, I'll emerge gvim... <.<
My nephew has an ipad.
He asked his dad how to write games. His dad didn't know. His dad asked me how to write games on an iPad. I told him not to bother.
My nephew asked me how to learn to write games.
I gave him a raspberry pi and a copy of pico 8.
Now he writes computer games.
He couldn't do that on his iPad.
Matrix developers have confirmed that a secure chat app developed by French government will be based on the Riot client.
@feld I treat unpackaged software as basically proprietary from my PoV. RMS has shown that you can live without proprietary software for decades while slowly and quietly building an empire of free software. We can do the same with reproducible, supported, packaged software.
It'd be nice if there was more stable institutions to rely on for more stable longer-term support - but all hope is not lost.

So I've been happily updating my internal LAN DNS resolver for years, at least for the forward zone. New hardware? DHCP reservation and DNS entry.
Oh, I guess I should update the reverse lookup zone too, no big deal.
> Serial 2015...
Right. I haven't done that in a while. Oops. :p

Wew. Them's fighting words, AMD. I approve.
It'd have been nice to talk up the Linux work their AMDGPU guys have been doing, and the fact that Valve is working with them specifically on VR with Vulkan, but still.
Whats amusing to me is the Google Self Destructing Emails are emulating private messages from protonmail. Very poorly indeed, and its an obvious ploy/cheap copy.
Please remember that GnuPG is a thing and it was designed with user freedom in mind. Its a little heady to understand at first but practice makes perfect, and apps like mailvelope make it more approachable.

They seriously want to try and undo the years, if not *decades* now of us training people: if you're not expecting a link from someone, *don't click links in your e-mail, ESPECIALLY if they ask you to sign in to something important*.
E-mail has plenty of problems, but this is not a solution anyone asked for.

Wow. Imagine getting an e-mail in your non-Gmail, standard e-mail box that just says:
"This message was sent with Gmail's confidential mode. You can open it by clicking this link."
...that then wants you to sign in with a Google account to view it, in your browser, as a web page.
That's not going to be *immediately* abused for phishing, nope, no siree...
...what the fuck are they thinking?
cats at 5AM: There is no food! We will suffer and perish! Please bestow the kibble!
me: *looks in bowls* There is already food in there.
cats: No! There is none! We starve!
me: *puts 3 tiny pieces of kibble in the bowls, just enough to make the clinky noise*
cats: OMG thank you we were starving!! *begin eating*

Oh man, this is great. nVidia fucked up~
Even if AMD, the CPU manufacturer, has issues with their 'Platform Security Processor' that could end up worse than Intel's in the long run, at least AMD, the continuation of ATI as a GPU manufacturer, is actively working on open standards (FreeSync) and open source (Linux GPU drivers).
Get the 🍿 for this one, if HP, Dell, and Intel sue nVidia's pants off over this blatant anti-competitive tactic. Intel would know.
