Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

But it's the MAGA weirdos I read about in the news- your Steven Crowders, Stephen Millers, Andrew Tates, etc.- that really fry my CPU trying to figure them out. We're so very close in age, but they're so much more fucked up. I've said it before, but how did we grow up in the same generational span ...

Re: SNES Favorite 75

with the benefit of ~30 years of hindsight, Yoshi's Island is more technically impressive (not to mention more fun to play). But at the time it didn't feel like the kind of technical feat that Star Fox did. What did YI do that was technologically complicated? Only weird thing I can think of was the...

Re: SNES Favorite 75

If it means anything to you, if I was to make a top ten SNES list that I considered "best", SD3 would be on it. Actually, you know what? Fuck it. 1. A Link to the Past 2. Earthbound 3. Final Fantasy 6 4. Chrono Trigger 5. Super Metroid 6. Seiken Densetsu 3 7. Yoshi's Island 8. Mega Man X ...

Re: Computerus

Does Win 11 fix the WSL2* shenanigans from Windows 10 in which vmmem.exe pushes your CPU utilization to 100% for no fucking reason whatsoever until you use wsl --shutdown? (It's also funny how `wsl -t <distro>` doesn't fix it, but doesn't make much difference.)

Re: SNES Favorite 75

I mean, is SD3 a better game than Mega Man X? I think that's really asking the wrong question. I categorize the games into nebulous quality tiers. Rankings are understandably subjective to a degree, but we can recognize things like mechanics jank, interface jank, pacing issues, etc. as detractors. ...

Re: SNES Favorite 75

30. Seiken Densetsu 3 Like SoM, SD3's a really solid multiplayer experience and IMO one of the main beneficiaries of SNES emulator netcode. SD3's one of the few SNES games I've replayed a few times over the years. That puts it on a very short list with Super Metroid, Link to the Past, and Secret of...

A Texas man died after hitting a bridge while doing a viral TikTok dance on top of an 18-wheeler as it zoomed down the highway.

The below is US specific.

Even without UBI, I think the disability system we currently have has something baked ...

(Wealth inequality in the US is looking worse over time and I don't think anyone will argue with that.)

it is no longer helping anyone who isn't the top 10%. And that is fucked up, yo. Quick question. We talking 10% of the world or 10% within a given country? Stuff that springs to mind: ⋅ Socialized systems scale may very differently depending on things like degrees of cultural homogeneity ...

Oh dang, my email recently reminded me I have an ID.me account. Probably for my Nexus card? Should I be worried about that? At least in Michigan, I'm well above the income level that allows for free state e-file. Some state DMVs' online renewal and such required ID.me, so some people may already su...

Re: FinalFight Discord?

Odd question, but would libera.chat terms permit hosting something like #ff? IIRC freenode was more for OSS and projects, rather than being a "hey nerds wanna hang out on our network dime" thing.

I know WFE/Bronto made shit like EK, but I'm not sure it counts.

Re: FinalFight Discord?

It's also not ideal for privacy. But the usability is way better.

That said, there are still other IRC networks you could move #finalfight to.
