    There's a bug opened about this on Bugzilla. Maybe add your voice so they can give us a toggle in the regular options menu.

    Does 7 Days to Die give me that?

    I usually try and do a first playthrough vanilla, then I'll go all out. Games I find really fun to mod are classic Doom & Doom II, and Skyrim (I use the Special Edition because it's way more stable than the original.) Doom is an amazing game to mod. There are 25 years worth of mods to play around with, so you'll basically never run out of things to do. I personally like finding a cool new gameplay changing mod and then testing out my new abilities on a megawad (compilation of maps) or slaughter map (that one's self-explanatory.) Doom just feels like an infinite playground. I like modding Skyrim because it's already such and interesting and captivating game world, so I love adding more stuff to that world. I also like adjusting the game to be just how I like it to look and feel.

    Yeah, I just subscribed to him. Very entertaining videos. I especially like this one because it gives some good tips (I kind of want to do some scambaiting now), and this one is also great, especially when he tells them that he Syskeyed their computer.

    That's pretty hilarious. I could imagine that it would also be somewhat entertaining to waste their time.

    Yeah sorry we can't help you with that, your going to have install windows and call us back so we can remove the virus

    That's pretty hilarious.

    If you've got the time and are comfortable doing so when you get these calls wasting their time may not do much but it can delay them just a bit from getting to vulnerable folk that would fall for it.

    If you have an Android, you can use Frost for Facebook from F-Droid (open source app store). It's an open source wrapper for Facebook that is more private and less bloated than the default app. I believe it also lets you use Messenger. Disclaimer: I don't use Facebook or Frost, so this is based on what I've heard from other people.

    Turntable. I don't have one, yet, but have been eyeing this turntable for the day I'm ready.

    My dad not long ago completed a very cool turntable project. My great-grandmother, who had recently died, left behind a ton of 1950's era furniture in her house, and one of the things she left was a vintage TV cabinet with a turntable, speakers, and a radio along with a black and white TV set. My dad striped out the TV (it had some toxic chemicals in the circuit board, and didn't work) replaced the broken turntable, and wired up the old speakers (that suprisingly still worked) to everything. He even replaced the radio with an aux cord, so he could plugin his phone or an old iPod to play music. The speakers sound great, and he can keep his old records on a shelf were the TV used to fit in. It turned out great. I can show some pctures when I get home. Little bit off-topic, but I thought it was a fun thing to share and it's related to turntables.

    Super true, although, I am excited about the story in this one, because they did a good job making it interesting in the last one.

    I wouldn't expect they would take more space than a comment. Also, text is tiny. It will take next to no storage space.
