@cmos4040 I'd say the Yamaha FM chip of the Sound Blaster beats everyone else :) (although special mention to Sega CD though for being completely confused about the score)

@xuv @stephen @M_PF .NL is on both. They communicated that the 20th is a student initiative and the 27th was the worldwide one. TBH it's a bit messy :/

Just found out about this site:

obscurehandhelds.com

Looks like it's actively monitoring the super active system on a chip game console scene that frequently floods aliexpress with non stop iterative/derivative/incremental production of all sorts of cheap portable game consoles.

preparing to

digital.globalclimatestrike.ne uses third party js, so you can presumably access "striking" sites just fine by disabling javascript.

Currently researching how to do it at the web server level.

@cjd @how rms and to some extent the structural constitution of the GNU project and the FSF that solely revolves around rms' vision of the world and society, with absolutely no room for other opinions, has always been problematic. It's indeed not new at all. It has overshadowed and limited the development of free software to become a more culturally diverse and more politicised effort. Similarly, rms' dogmatic attitude has created a situation where free software communities are having a hard time to be self critical and able to evaluate the nature of their discourse and whether or not there is cognitive dissonance between the values they aim to share and their actions. Hopefully these kind of exposures and discussions will help move forward work on software and cultural freedom, in general, and not lead to complete implosion.

@luka I've been using baïkal (caldav server) + infcloud (web client) + DAVx (android) for myself and a couple users for the past years. Super stable. Also all this stuff comes with contact/address book management (handy) and task/to do lists (i don't use it but some people I know are quite fond of it).

Cool op-ed from @l03s about What Remains in The Ecologist!

"Gamers battling industry disinformation

What Remains is a game that draws parallels between industry disinformation campaigns from the 1980s and today."
