If you're a fan of retro pixel RPG's, turn based tactical combat, and some cool character builds & lootsies - this is worth the effort.
I've followed the game since its birth, encouraged partly by the dev of roguelike Dungeonmans, and it truly spans the genre but keeps the comfort of good dungeon crawling. Tend your tangled garden!
I'm drenched in #Shadowrun Fever.
Hong Kong is about to climax, I'm sniffing around the tabletop books purely for lore & imagery excitement.
I've been dabbling in Dragonfall, just to try out some builds.

Today I read what basically seemed like a hit-piece on Mastodon to warn people away from it because of internal disputes.
Yet here I am, enjoying my feed of #Linux and tech fans, seeing no adverts, not having random tweets promoted that I couldn't give a rats arse about, not having to *for the tenth time* tell it to order my toots normally...the list goes on.
Mastodon is lovely.

"Pwned on 15 breached sites and found 1 paste" on my old e-mail address at https://haveibeenpwned.com. My current email address is harder to check, because besides using randomly generated passwords for each account, I have a unique mail address on the same domain for every account as well.
Next step: randomly generated email addresses? If I was a better programmer I might create a service for this myself.

Dedoimedo reviews: MX Linux MX-18 Continuum - Time x Space x Fun.
"The heat is on. The stakes are high. Why, thou asketh?
Well, I crowned MX-17 the best distro of 2018, and now I'm testing the successor release, MX-18 Continuum, with all the associated hype and expectation."
Forget food, I'm stockpiling loo paper.
I've just discovered the UK imports ~90% of its toilet paper requirements, and most of that from the EU.
I'm not going to resort to dock leaves (Rumex obtusifolius) come April. No way!
