    Huh, never thought of that. Not is it only annoying that Facebook is now part of many applications I use, the data before they even purchased Giphy is now available to them too.

    now retroactively go track anybody who used those extensions is nauseating.

    Would love a copy of Reflex and/or Skull girls! I haven't tried much arena or fighter games and those look to be highly rated examples of each. Thank you for giving a copy out to the community!

    Just a correction, it's 70 Celsius or 158 Fahrenheit.

    Just bake it in the oven at 70F for an hour.

    Unfortunate that most of it won't come into effect for individuals until Parliament resumes in early April.

    This is in addition to Trudeau's announcement on March 16 barring entry to travellers who are not citizens, permanent residents, or Americans.

    This could have been played out so much better to give this "white hat" security researcher some reputability behind their work. They just gave steps behind every single way to access the data, which hasn't even been secured yet. They are equally at fault at this point, and every positive-intent statement is a complete contradiction when that article and whitepaper was written the way it was.

    They're not as loose and cheap feeling as Thinkpads.

    This is a key comment for me. I love ThinkPads, but they materially don't feel like quality to me, despite how versatile they can be. Surface Books are more expensive than MacBooks for me here if I buy them brand new from Microsoft, that's including my student discounts!

    Thank you for your comments, I'll look into System76 as a good alternative to MacBooks.

    Looking at the trailer, I thought wow they finally made some advancements on the graphics. The screenshots tell me otherwise. Looks like an expansion for the initial games, hope I'm wrong!
