Oh hey, I should post this here too! I made a CSS-only async chat by using background-image requests to send data and long-running http requests to return it.

Grabbed Dead Cells since it's on sale and was hooked within the first 10 minutes.

This is the game that Rogue Legacy promised to be but ultimately failed to pull off (though they tried very hard and it's still a pretty good game).

It's a Castlevania rogue-like that has "checkpoints" so that you don't lose ALL of your progress when you die, but ultimately you progress through the game but getting more skilled and learning patterns.

Also, the dev company is a worker owned co-op, so... ✊

@carbontwelve's a Plume account...

@PlumeDev's a Friendica account...


...and you can follow all of them from Mastodon.

Just click on the @ link to see their profile, and then click on Follow.

was groovey with interlocking fan service - but most of it didn't rock me emotionally, (maybes a little at the end) but I listened to do his review on his Fatman on Batman and him tearing up as he explains some of the moments, had me out in sympathy on my commute this morning!

Here is the vid of his review (warning: SPOILERS in the vid!)

Dragon Age Inquisition Digital Deluxe Edition seems to be going for a song on for the at the moment at 3.99GBP.

It's a game I come back to, because I can explore the single player story & character building options, but also the multiplayer wasn't a bad customisable dungeon crawler with about 18 unique classes with tailored skill trees & weapons to build and modify.

@minoru I'm more a DCSS player, but I might play a game or two just to try. I haven't dug into 3.6.2 and keep meaning to!

@spelk and @erkin are two not-bot folks that use the #roguelike hashtag that might want the reminder about Junethack!

Registration for #junethack 2019 opens May 27th:

Junethack is a month-long #nethack tournament running on multitude of servers. A lot of forks are represented—13 last year. You can play solo or gather your friends into a clan; there are trophies for both individuals and groups.

Anyone else participates? @kawa perhaps? (sorry for highlighting, but you're the only one roguelike person on Fediverse that I'm aware of).

Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.


It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.

Either follow the instructions here by @amolith

Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route:

I've updated the poster, to make it as simple and easy to read as possible:

The idea of the poster is to go on community noticeboards, so that more people in real life realise there are alternatives to what big tech offers them.

Feedback on design and content etc welcome.

GitLab reports suspicious Git activity:

– one or more attackers seem to wipe Git repos, or hold them for ransom
– the attackers seemingly know credentials
– GitLab notifies affected users and investigates this at the moment

So #Mozilla fixed the #Firefox certificate expiration issue that disabled all your extensions. All you have to do to get the fix is to check:

✅ Allow Firefox to send technical and interaction data to Mozilla

✅ Allow Firefox to install and run studies


(Don’t forget to turn these off right after your extensions show up again. I restarted the browser but not sure if that’s necessary.)

The number of ads and sponsored posts targeted at infosec posts that push a "be a hero!" narrative is on the rise again

If your org needs heroes, it has failed mightily on some pretty basic shit. This isn't a comic book, we need consistent competence not heroics.

There is a #firefox bug that has caused all extensions to become disabled:

A temporary workaround:

- Navigate to about:debugging
- Click the 'Load Temporary Add-on' button
- Navigate to the .xpi file in your profile directory select it and open it.

Or just download the extensions you want from

- Right click on the 'Add to Firefox' button
- Choose 'Save Link As' from the menu
- Save the .xpi file somewhere handy
- Open it using the above technique.
