    I'm not who you asked, but I've beaten Downwell several times so I hope I can give some advice. These is the way I used to win, but you can obviously adapt it to your style.

    • Use the boulder style. Floaty is nice, but you need to get used to moving quickly through levels and not landing on every enemy you see
    • Combos are important, but not as important as health. If you're about to take a high risk to keep your combo, rethink it.
    • Focus on powerups that affect the gameplay. Membership card/Apple/ etc. are useful, but you won't need them if you're powerful enough to not lose a life each level.
    • Get used to playing with all the gun modules, and always pick them up for the perks.

    In my opinion, this is a rather large deal. This isn't simply a PR skirmish, Spotify filed an anti-trust complaint to the European Commission about what they consider unfair play on Apple's part. Apple has long been a "closed ecosystem" in terms of OS integration with competing products as opposed to their own (especially in iOS).

  5. Comment on VLC on iOS - Late to the party on this but I have to GUSH! in ~tech

    Personally I've found Infuse to be a much better experience than VLC on iOS. You can pass files through a wired connection without iTunes (good for linux), and I like the interface a lot better....

    Without needing to comb through the commits (I'm not very familiar with python), I'm curious as to how you're calculating word-count for a large number of sites. Is there an external API you're using for this? Or are you using something like beautifulsoup and guessing at html elements that contain the article's content?

    I don’t mean to be harsh, I am genuinely confused as to what is going on in this comment section. What is with the seemingly forceful grammar mistakes and formatting mishaps? Is this part of the art or whatever? Are you OK? I’m sorry if this comes off as rude, I’m trying to understand.

    Currently, we can filter posts based on topic tags, is there any chance we could get the same based upon users? Preferably for comments and topics. There are times when I might be interested in a sub-tilde group, but for one reason or another, not a specific user's content in that group. Is this a bad idea?

    I'm not sure what you really mean by: Most PWAs function as "apps" that are standalone from the browser, you can actually set this with the display property in the site's manifest.json. More Info

    I'm not sure what you really mean by:

    Still requires you to have the browser open to actually receive them, but doesn't require having the tab open.
