    In some ways I'm kind of hedging my bets on Libera.chat - at least for FOSS projects. However, I can't Imagine some sort of mass migration taking the majority of users.

    Wayne OS
    NayuOS (Side note: It is also open source, which probably makes it an even better choice.)

    Nice application I've been using for a little over a year and a half, and I feel it is a little under appreciated as far as open source Android apps go.

    It's Kentucky, which even though it is absolutely awful it doesn't pertain to the actual shooting, it's not very surprising either because southern states tend to justify practically anything if it even barely aligns to what they believe. On the other hand officers that have done shooting in Washington and Oregon is much more likely to get indicted as their state governments are generally more progressive.

    I agree, I do have hope that as a result of the buyout the management behind Bethesda's IPs will be much better than under Bethesda alone. I feel as though that the issue many people have is that we're increasingly seeing several corporations buying out other studios allowing monopolies (which is obviously bad for the industry as a whole). I also hope that Microsoft doesn't kill Bethesda at some point (like Lionhead), because although Bethesda's management practices is certainly questionable many of their franchises have large communities.

    I really hope they never phaze it out, seeing Java is where the (I guess "franchise" is the word for it) began. That would also fuck over much of the game's modding community, seeing most people never embraced Add-on packs. Minecraft PE (the version that eventually became Bedrock) at one point had a vibrant modding community as well much of which were directly ported from the PC.

    This seems like a nice browser, I will check it out later. Also, did you make it or did you find it online somewhere?

    For a short time I ran a MediaWiki server on my old laptop, which is much less of a laptop and more of an old motherboard I have lying around. I did actually get relatively far, despite facing some issues with MySQL. Even though I wanted to host it as a website, IRL issues occurred which caused it to not happen.

    Several months later I discovered wikifarms and hosted what I wanted.
