    I'd say it's pretty fair to just vote on what you like or whatever you think is vote-worthy (and which follows the Tildes spirit). Functionally, right now, votes are rather useless apart from having some interaction with the comment labeling system and being used for sorting. So, use them as you please.

    I checked the code and voting is also not rate limited at the moment so you have nothing to worry there.

  2. Comment on American Capitalism is Brutal. You Can Trace That to the Plantation in ~misc

    Along with what @rkcr said, I can read the entire article without it asking for me to sign up. I also edited the title to be complete, it was missing the "trace that to the plantation" part.

    It's funny because Kelsier was the one that posted the Black Pumas song initially to the Atlantis Music Server which is how I found it. :P

    The past couple of months I've played a bunch of games I particularly enjoyed (and am still enjoying):

    Snakeybus (Steam)

    The length of your bus grows as you pick up more people! Snake through the city streets and avoid crashing into yourself.

    Surprisingly simple concept but also surprisingly fun. You drive a bus around a map, pick passengers up and drop them off, and your bus grows. You can jump and have a boost meter to fly up in the air, similar to Rocket League. (The most recent update also added an Aerial map but I haven't played that yet) The graphics are nice and smooth and pleasant to look at, and the soundtrack is super chill that really suits the vibe. My only problem with the game is the fixed controls, not being able to change them is unfortunate in my case: I use AZERTY and when I tried changing my keyboard language the game still didn't let me use WASD. So I had to use arrow keys and not use the mouse which controls your bus midair, somewhat limiting how far I could go but I could still get some pretty high scores. Apart from that I still very much enjoyed it, it's got a bunch of maps and trying to get on the leaderboard is very fun.


    Absolute Drift (Steam)

    Absolute Drift is a racing game about becoming a master at the art of drifting.

    Have you ever wanted a drifting game where you could see the crazy lines you're taking and not just have that first-person view from your car seat? This is the one. What I really liked is that you're really supposed to be drifting and not just racing. In the beginning you'll be bumping the walls a fair bit but once you get the controls and speed down, it is sooo satisfying when you get a nice line.


    Astroneer (Steam)

    A game of aerospace industry and interplanetary exploration.

    I'm still in middle of playing this one but it's so fun, the inventory management and base-building mechanics are great and integrated into the world really well. You're not just storing your stuff in a bottomless backpack or in a chest with an arbitrary limit, it's actually there and you can see everything while you're playing. It's got beautiful scenery and comical rocket physics, what more do you need.


    Dusk (Steam, GOG)

    DUSK reintroduces you to a world where butchery and bloodshed must be mastered... if you're to survive 'til dawn. Inspired by Doom, Quake, Blood, Heretic, Hexen, Half-Life, Redneck Rampage and all your '90s favorites, while featuring a soundtrack by metal music mastermind Andrew Hulshult.

    Have you played Doom and want something to scratch that demon-killing itch because you just can't wait for Doom Eternal? Dusk will do that for you. You kill whatever's in your way, you pick up guns, and you kill some more. Every level has a bunch of secrets and plenty of stuff to discover.


    Oxygen Not Included (Steam)

    Oxygen Not Included is a space-colony simulation game. Deep inside an alien space rock your industrious crew will need to master science, overcome strange new lifeforms, and harness incredible space tech to survive, and possibly, thrive.

    I only very recently started playing but I've been thoroughly enjoying it but don't think I've gotten far enough yet to really say much about it. It recently came out of early access though and there's a 33% discount on it so if you've been thinking about getting it, now might be a good time.

    Usually if I really want to confirm a site is down it’ll come down to several ways:

    • Not always applicable but if a website has a status page themselves that’s a good place to start. They’re usually placed under the status subdomain (https://status.example.com) or can easily be found by just searching status website.
    • Also not always applicable but official social media, they’re usually pretty quick to put it up there when something happens.
    • Like @mnl mentioned, https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ is pretty much the go-to for it.
    • Opening a private window or a different browser and checking yourself may also help. Or a different device entirely.
    • Using networking tools like ping and traceroute might help you figure out where exactly the problem lies in the connection.
    • And if you know the problem is on your end, restarting your router or PC might fix it.

    We already have wiki pages. Here's the announcement topic. Unless you meant something different, then I don't know what you mean.

    The certificate, once installed, will allow local government agencies to decrypt users' HTTPS traffic, look at its content, encrypt it again with their certificate, and send it to its destination.

    There are a few but it really comes down to specifics because if all you're looking for is online git and issues/merge requests/... then they're both pretty much the same.

    The things that made me move my repos to GitLab were:

    • It has built-in CI/CD. On GitHub you'd have to go through Travis/Circle/AppVeyor or something to get that.
    • The development of GitLab is open, as opposed to GitHub being closed.
    • GitLab has free public and private repositories with no collaborator limit. GitHub at the time of me switching only had private repos available with premium. Now GitHub has them for free but there's a limit of 3 collaborators on them.

    You can also use GitLab Pages with custom domains, it's very easy to set up. No need to pay for hosting. :)

    I mean, I do want a custom domain, but I think I want to actually blog about stuff first and know that I'll keep up with my goal of at least one post a month before I go off buying domains and setting up paid hosting.
