@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)

Date: Saturday 28th of September
Time: 19:30h - 21:30h
Just found out about this site:
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.
Stallman, FSF, MIT, Epstein, Minsky
#Stallman 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 prevented the development of free software to be more culturally diverse and a more politicised effort. Similarly, his dogmatic attitude has created throughout the years a situation where free software communities are having a hard time to be self critical and are effectively unable to evaluate the nature of their discourse. Ultimately, there has been increasing cognitive dissonance between the values they believe sharing and their actions, with sometimes quite aggressive response to even the slightest form of criticism and critique of anything related to software/user freedom. At best, criticism is deflected by tweaking the terminology and the language used, and if needed new definitions of words are created to defuse problematic statements. Hopefully these kind of exposures and open discussions will help move forward work on software and cultural freedom, in general, and not lead to complete implosion.

@cmos4040 A place to complain about division remainders.

@signaleleven @niconiconi Tired was parodying Wired... in the 90's. It was glorious.
@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).
for those who may be interested, 2 academic jobs in Bergen
-Associate professor in Digital Culture (Games Studies / Interactive Digital Narrative)

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."
@clacke thanks for sharing that! Super interesting :)
