Old Androids Never Die, They Just Have A Few Screws Loose

Wouldn't it be funny if someone pirated BS, but the pirated version only ran on Linux?

Suspicious Proton Screenshots

January 8, 2019

So, as you may have read elsewhere, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been cancelled for Linux and Mac. Which is kind of a damn shame, because

oh look, it doesn't seem to have any issues on Proton. So I am a little doubtful of these "middleware" claims. If I had to bet, I'd bet that they've picked some crappy DRM for online gameplay, maybe even EAC, that will block them from releasing on Linux, and decided that pissing off their Linux and Mac backers is fine because sales will be made up by Switch supporters.

Glad I was able to crowdfund a Nintendo platform by theft, tho!

Apple stock tanks, reason: people fix their phones instead of having to buy new

January 3, 2019

Imagine if you had to buy your car or your house new every time it broke. One of the biggest reasons NOT to buy Apple is their attitude toward repairs, and considering how fragile their phones seem to be, you'd have to be an idiot in the first place, to buy something you're not allowed to fix.

Shots fired.

I made a post, detailing my problem with Bloodstained.

If they delete it or ban me, there will be hell raised. Screenshots were taken!

Fucking assholes.

I drop $60 before anything's even started, and these dickheads take my money and think they can use it for SWITCH support?!?

Fuck that. Fuck that sideways. I will file a suit for $60 + plane costs and go to fucking court over this shit.

Yule Regret it

December 27, 2018

Nothing says "It's Christmas" like the smell of KFC in the air for 2.5-3 hours before you have to eat bland turkey for dinner.

Or, if you're lucky, you're Japanese and actually get KFC for Christmas. Then I hate you twice as much.

Why I stopped giving Money to ThinkProgress, or "Our Effort to blame Jill Stein for Hillary's loss was more extensive than previously thought"

December 23, 2018

2 years after a Democratic rout that even a four-year-old could have predicted, they are still trying to "correct the record" - despite these claims being easily disproven.

Take for instance The Russian effort to divert votes to Jill Stein was more extensive than previously thought - ThinkProgress which bases their claims on the presumption that Hillary Clinton was owed the votes of Greens and Independents, then blames both Jill Stein and Russia for Hillary's loss at the polls.

Trick is, Twitter posted the data set that NBC "analyzed" and anyone can download it and grep through for data proving whatever they want to prove. Fun fact: science is about taking data, analyzing it without prejudice, then developing a theory from that data. Religious belief is the exact opposite - starting from your presumption, cherry-pick the data that fits and ignore all data that isn't helpful. Like this IRA tweet for instance:

#BREAKING: Fox's Megyn Kelly "Voting For" Hillary Clinton; Civil War Underway At Fox | #HillarysArmy | #ImWithHer

A quick grep for the words "Hillary Clinton" in the dataset finds 11120 tweets, 11 times the number posited by Adam for pro-Stein tweets; however, this particular claim - "The NBC News analysis found that Russians working with the infamous Internet Research Agency -- the Kremlin-linked propaganda outfit with close ties to Putin -- tweeted out Jill Stein's name at least 1,000 times, on a network of fake accounts whose online reach is thought to be in the tens of millions." - is EASILY disproved.

$ grep -i "Jill Stein" ira_tweets_csv_hashed.csv | wc -l

ThinkProgress is dishonest in favor of the establishment and the DNC, and can no longer be trusted.

I remembered

December 19, 2018

Dontnod - probably best known for the Life is Strange series (which has two Linux-native games out of the 3!) made this awesome platformer back in 2013. And of course it runs great on Proton and Ubuntu.

Remember Me is a lot of fun and gorgeous, despite its age.
