    It's beyond evil. I just feel kind of helpless about it though. Not sure what can be done since we won't enter a direct war with Russia, and sanctions can only do so much. I would hope for Europe to stop buying fuel and gas but I know it would have dire consequences for them. I hate that so many people were not loved when they were young and grown up to be absolute giga supermassive assholes with no regard for human life.

    Yesterday I finished the 13th level of the VR game Tethered. It's like a mini RTS game where you use creatures (called peeps) to do stuff like gather food, wood, ore and stone. You can construct buildings and at night there are monsters that come crawling and try to eat resources (and kill your peeps). The goal is to gather a given quantity of spirit energy to restore the island vitality. Each level is a different island with a different layout. It's fun enough for me to do the 13 levels again, since I gained experience I would do things a little bit differently.

    I bought Cyberpunk 2077 when 1.5 released. Started playing it last week. Blow away by the story and the customization possible for the main character thus far. I'm at the start of Act 2. I know the game is controversial but I had no expectation whatsoever and man, I'm having a lot of fun right now.

    Last week I also finished the exobiology expedition of No man's sky. I don't think that game needs a description anymore :)

    Deep rock galactic, started playing again with my friends after a 2 weeks haitus where we played NMS.

    Zelda BOTW, finished the 4 divine beast, and standing at 75 shrines. Still a long way to go.

    That's about it. Good week fellow gamers !

    With the number of soldiers in position, I don't think it will be bites by bites this time but we will see. It is a messed up situation, motivated by misplaced pride, greed and power. Much technological progress has been made in the last 100 years, but humans have not made much progress. There are too many people who believe that power comes from destruction and expansion while cooperation is a softer but stronger force in the long run.

    3.5 is a high dose ? Man it's a very high dose! Did 3g like 20 years ago and hallucinated like a madman.
    I speak for myself but I always had a good time when doing it in a cabin in the woods (taking about 1g, 1.5g max per time), where you can just be yourself and ride the trip wherever it gets you. In the city I would not feel good. You usually don't want people to enter your "safe zone" so to speak. You want to appeal to your senses while high, so I would do activities in that vein. Music, drawing, painting, thinking/philosophy. When I think about it there was a time where it was very fun in an appartment, we had some lights of different colors (blue and green) and dish soap. We spent maybe 2 hours making bubbles in the dining room with our hands. It was insane. You don't need much while tripping to have fun. Just to feel (and be) safe.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Edit : Also, it usually starts with a little tummy ache, so don't worry it's normal. And it may take some time before it starts, so don't ingest another 1g if you feel like the first intake does nothing.

    I'm not a big fan of music streaming apps, but a coworker was using Deezer. It may be worth a shot.

    What I would do is

    cd /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

    grep -Hrn 'example' *

    Check the result(s) in prompt and then edit the file(s).

    sudo nano the files, update the text and save the file with ctrl-x/ Y enter

    if you still get the error after that, I would check if there is another directory which nginx may use.
    Check in the /etc/nginx/nginx.conf file for a include statement. Something like :

    include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;

    Hope this helps

    cannot load certificate "/etc/letsencrypt/live/example.tld/fullchain.pem

    It's trying to load a certificate on a path that maybe doesn't exists. replace "example" with your domain name in the conf file. If it's already been done, and you still gets this error, it means nginx is loading another file, possibly in the same directory, that contains the error.

    I guess you already installed letsenscrypt and generated your ssl keys properly.

    I'm still playing Deep Rock Galactic with my friends about 5h a week. We are having a lot of fun but one of the guys is starting to lose interest in the game. He played much more than me, at about 200 hours already.

    In solo I finished Mass Effect Legendary Edition last friday. I played thoses games when they came out and to revisit them again for the first time in years was a really good experience. I missed this universe and the characters. Since all the dlc were included in that version of the game, some part of the games felt new to me. Took me about 90 hours and I do not regret it one bit. One of my favorite series of games ever.

    About 3 weeks ago I started The legend of Zelda : Breath of the wild. I'm new to the nintendo switch (bought one for the kids for christmas, might as well buy a game for me :)) Combat is kind of difficult when you are not used to play with a controller in a 3D world, so I am having some difficulties. But the game is really good. Very open world... I don't know if I'm doing the right thing but it does not matter too much. Last time I played I was exploring and died when I received an arrow and lost 8 hearts in one shot... so I guess its to soon to explore that region. I'm excited to boot it up tonight.

    I played it a year ago and it was very good indeed. I will be getting the expansion soon for a second playthrough. I always find it difficult to play a "dark side" character so to speak.

    I saw someone here talked about Deep Rock Galactic. Talked to my friends about it and decided to give it a try since there was a 50% discount during last steam sales. Wow what a blast! It must be one the funniest game I have ever played online. Everything about it is good. The setup, music, the theme and the gameplay. Customization is also on point. I think we will play that game for a long time. I play the engineer class.

    I know it may sound absurd, but when I'm too tired/drunk/whatever, I play Hollow Knight. I started a normal game but I play it like in steel mode. If I am at 1 HP I quit (happened 3-4 times). I died only once in 12 hours as of yesterday. More than halfway through. Still not fast enough for the speedrun achivement though.

    I am many years late to the party but I played Moss (a VR game) last week. It was absolutely fantastic. A really beautiful game, Quill (the mouse) is very cute... reminded me of Ori. It tends to lean more on the puzzle side than the action side of games I usually like, but it was perfect. 10/10 would recommend :)
