I've updated linuxwit.ch/blog/2018/12/every with e98e's permanent archive location, as both a zip file and a cloneable git repository.

If anyone ever wondered what i'm up to in my spare time when not working on @prismo (i doubt anyone did but still i think this one is pretty neat) - i'm working on a #federated #tumblr clone!

Any ideas for a good name?

Follow down memory lane in this amazing 1:45h documentary!

PSA: Katamari Damacy Reroll has been released yesterday.

These games are super weird and fun and at a price of 29$/20€ I would 100% recommend it! In general I'd recommend any of the Katamari games.

Consider me fucking hyped. Part of the team is the original Fallout folks as well as people who worked on Fallout: New Vegas.

The Soundtrack is a masterpiece. Not only does it fit the visuals and the game well, it gives a sense of exploration and danger. It feels "big". I love it!

Inon Zur, who also composed the Soundtracks for Fallout 3 and 4, did an amazing job. I hope Bethesda keeps working with him for future projects!

#Federation (also known as #Decentralisation) is when, instead of one big site, you have lots of smaller independent sites that talk to each other.

Here's a short article about why federated services are a good idea, and how all of us use them all the time (even if we don't realise it):

The idea of federated social media like Mastodon, Diaspora, PeerTube etc is to give users more control over their social network and personal data.

I finally took some time to build a little camp in . It's not much but it's mine. 😍 :sony_ps4:

I occasionally release bits and pieces of code on GitHub, mostly in or .

Some time ago I made a little Node module which checks if a string is a palindrome called "palipali".

You can also install it with NPM:
$ npm i palipali

or yarn
$ yarn add palipali

#Email is the oldest and most popular way to communicate online.

However, some email providers don't respect privacy. For example, Gmail reads your mail and lets third parties read it too.

There are much more privacy-friendly email providers out there, for example:

Tutanota
tutanota.com/
@Tutanota

Posteo
posteo.de/en

Protonmail
protonmail.com

Fastmail
fastmail.com

Thexyz
thexyz.com

I praised the game in my B.E.T.A review

But right now I am concerned if this will run for long enough to properly enjoy it - let alone getting more content.

Don't get me wrong: has a lot of potential and the game itself (story, world) is amazing.

The game client is just unstable as are the servers. This game should not have been released so soon.

For real, somebody in the Bethesda Marketing team has to get their shit together.

This is already a PR disaster and the game isn't selling well anyway, at least don't fuck over the people who already bought the game - ESPECIALLY the people who spent $200 for it.

I really love and but the shit show they're pulling with is just sad:

- Game is released and full of bugs
- Servers are super unstable
- 2 weeks after release the game is almost 50% off! Fuck people who pre-ordered I guess?
- The $200 collector's edition comes with a cheap nylon bag instead of a high quality bag as advertised because the "material costs were higher than anticipated"??
- Compensation for people who bought the $200 edition is $5 of in-game currency

Check your dependencies! If you're using "event-stream" by dominictarr you are vulnerable to malicious code trying to steal crypto currency.

The package is quite popular and used in a lot of third party modules so better check your projects!

Bethesda is now directly communicating with folks on r/fo76 regarding all the issues with 76. I highly welcome them taking this community serious.

r/fo76 is full of good critic and even appreciate for a game that's way too broken at the moment. I hope BGS can fix these issues soon because at the moment it's really hard to enjoy the game.
