    it's actually quite simple. Trump's order takes control of the powers of censorship away from social media companies, and puts it in his own government's hands.

    After many weeks, this sale has arrived again. I want to encourage anybody who likes atmospheric and steady fantasy magic mmo-style gaming to buy it for peanuts/cheap :) -- This is a really immersive, deep thinking game, like speed chess -- in pvp, especially on fun team pvp servers like named NWKnights, Alestorm or Bastion of War. All of which were very popular back in the 2008s, and are returning again with the new NWN EE :)

    Champions of Regnum. Been playing this game for 7+ years now -- it's just a simple casual open RvR pvp fantasy old-style mmo. I guess over the years the devs have had the time to ensure the combat is really fun and addictive, and they keep working at it too. Its closest alternatives are GW2, Return for Reckoning and DAOC -- but Regnum has its own sort of "latin" feel to it. So its different, especially in combat control precision/hardness. Some people call it clunky, but its very tactile combat once you become familiar with it. It's the largest indie mmo in the latin speaking world, but has lots of english speakers. They just released an update this week called Squid Island which allows new players to go straight into the mini warzone and experience RvR (everyone is leveled to the same level there).

    Example video of combat. In this video-- there's a group of barbs who have stalkered themselves with a Hunter archer's ability. They then sneak into the center of enemy formations and use their area effect giant weapon attacks: https://youtu.be/Xume-VA5qvQ

    edit: Just wanted to say i saw a gameplay video for GW1 just today --- the gfx and environment and combat look somewhat similar to Regnum, but Regnum's gfx detail is somewhat less. GW1 is really expensive though, while Regnum is f2p.

  6. Comment on Henry Grimes, a jazz bassist. Disappeared in 1970 and was presumed dead. Was found by a social worker in 2002, destitute and with no bass. Eventually won a lifetime achievement award in 2016 in ~music

    Really sad to hear all these greats pass on probably earlier than they would have.

    In case anyone is interested, tomorrow 24 May 2020 is the anniversary of the launch of this indie mmo. Regnum is one of the largest indie mmos in the latin speaking world. The game is f2p and is quite simple -- 3 realms warring for fun over forts and invasions. it's very casual, so you can join in the war, or just hang around and chat, laugh at the fortunes of war, or go grind a bit etc. https://www.championsofregnum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=112175
    If you guys have questions, I can try to answer.
    It runs on really low spec pcs too (and runs on Maxc and Linus very well).

    (if you are totally new to the game, the anniversary event is usually hugely packed out, so you may find lag during these few days in the war itself)

    MS Windows has descended into a revolting, disgraceful, misleading and deceptive mass of lies and deceits. MS needs to be SHUT DOWN. Instead, all OSes should be microed and fully disclosed just like C64s!!! All security flaws spottable by ANYONE all the time. Shut down MS NOW!!!
