Take a moment to read this good article from Vice about the #SelfHosting movement.
I think the Final Fantasy franchise is overrated.
I played one of the most praised ones, Final Fantasy 6, and i really disliked it, it has aged very poorly, especially the gameplay. So the best 2d one is not great, then what about the 3d ones?
From what i've heard, FFVI has also aged poorly, 8 is a weird game with a weird focus on its gameplay, 9 is great and X is like FFXIII but nobody seems to mind.
And no, not every old JRPG has aged bad, play Dragon Quest 3 and you will understand.
What's even the point of getting a PhD in the middle of a pandemic if you're *not* going to make a plague doctor mask and wander around campus wearing it along with your regalia?

I hope we see it get to 25% by the end of the day!
#RISCV Single Board Computers has to be the next step to follow in order to make the architecture widely used on the userspace.
On the other hand, just imagine a 2 core 16 threads #openpower single board computer, i think those two projects would benefit in significant ways if someone makes it happen.
Facebook is using its army of lawyers to create a Trojan Horse into GDPR law so that they can just demand anybody's private information from any company using the loop hole of "legitimate interest".
It starts with the domain name registrars but doesn't stop there.
If anybody is writing up a "reasons to break up Facebook", please add this to your list.
Remember, Biden once called Julian a ❝high-tech terrorist❞. He is a enemy of press freedom.
Creo que es necesario hacer todo tipo de boicots a Reino Unido por ir contra los derechos humanos.
