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:

cybre.space is shutting down apparently 🤔

Just finally found out that neckbeard.xyz didn't mysteriously die but migrated to bae.st. Makes you think about the ephemeral nature of a federated social system

it seems that the good times for online minecraft play are over.

when microsoft required each minecraft account to be linked with a microsoft account, i reluctantly created 3 microsoft accounts for my 3 licences and migrated. not because i agree with the system, but because i still occasionally played on online servers.

now, it's basically dangerous to play on any online server. microsoft has introduced a chat signing system, and with it, a chat reporting system. it's been implemented so poorly that you can be banned for literally anything (picrel 1). and by banned i dont mean restricted from 1 server. you will never be able to play online or on realms ever again with that account (picrel 2).

centralized chat and account moderation goes against everything minecraft stood for, but it's obvious that microsoft doesn't care about this property anymore. they delayed the 1.19 update not to remove the chat reporting system because of massive backlash, but to PUBLICLY LABEL PEOPLE AS "NOT SECURE" when they use a mod like "no-chat-reports", which disables the message signing system (https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/article/minecraft-1-19-1-pre-release-2).

im still going to play minecraft on the cracked server i run. we're going to try to disable this system on the server side and advise our players to use no-chat-reports. it's just a shame that playing online is essentially a liability now.

Managed to get a 90% score with ear training selecting the right note played, from a random key and random octave. Feels like a superpower. I'm not even close to done with training but it's an awesome milestone.

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.
