A game from the 00s (Battlechess) recently came to mind. Couldn't find it, asked stackexchange for help.


I've spent about 7 hours installing win 3.1/95/98 on different windows software (QEMU/Virtualbox/WINE) in the middle of the night but in the end the game finally worked on 86box. I managed to capture some gameplay and I'm glad that a piece of history is preserved, pretty bummed to not have seen anything before. Here it is:

apparently my elderly neighbor has been maintaining a personal website about the history of UK photography and it is an incredible piece of work.

apparently he still uses some piece of adobe software from the 90s. there is so much care and effort here, and its such a pristine image of the early web being still updated 😭


How do people in the even get 100+ let alone 1k+ followers (which I see very often)? I've spent some time looking around and spent a moderate amount of time and I would no idea how I'd even get close to that in this ecosystem

@marcel straight to the nuclear option. I can respect that. and I am duly cautioned to be very careful if you ever become a genie

Hello everyone! We’re happy to see lots of new people checking out the fediverse and cross posting services like Moa Party.

We run the main install of the app at moa.party as a public utility.

Mastodon's monthly active user numbers have risen by 84,579 since the Twitter buyout story broke on Monday (and I do mean across the Mastodon network, not this server)

I remember one of the things that motivated me to look into the state of decentralized social media (and ultimately begin working on Mastodon) in 2016 were talks that a controversial billionaire might buy Twitter.

Guess what! Mastodon’s official #Android app was finally approved and is now on the Play Store.

I guess not.

EU to Facebook, Apple, Signal, Telegram, etc.: Open your APIs and play nice with others, or GTFO.

If this sticks it will be a massive win for an open internet.


Some positive news - I managed to get to the top of r/youtubehaiku! 😎

Finished Paradise Killer a few days ago. Thank you Kaizen GameWorks for the great atmosphere, memorable experience and the sincerity in creating the game.
