    I'm not sure where you're located, but g7 plus isn't available in the us, and it's apparently more of a moto x than a moto g. I bought a moto g7 play and returned it for a moto g7. The difference in quality is worth $100 to me. The screen is night and day, it has 4gb of ram instead of 2, and the notch is much much less intrusive. The play is made of plastic while the g7 is made of glass, but I use a case so I don't really notice. I'm not really sure where the power fits in, but I hope my experiences help.

    I agree with everyone else about python, it's a real, serious business programming language. Google, reddit, and tildes all use it. The performance impact isn't really relevant for most desktop apps, but I'd also look into using mpd for your music player, it's really nice, and it has good libraries for c and python

    I finally got into dwarf fortress with the quick start guide, it wasn't as tough as everyone made it out to be. I've had a few interesting interactions like here where an angry carpenter beat the mayor's head in and won the election while standing over the body contemplating what she'd done.

    You're right about the analogy not being great, it's just what I came up with on the spot. I agree with you that it's relatively minor compared to all the other dysphoria inducing things they have been through, but I still don't feel that it being minor is a reason to suck it up and deal with it. I think we should try to improve the world and make it more inclusive to all, including in areas as small as the word on a birth certificate.

    So you're arguing that it sucks but it's relatively minor compared to the rest of what they went through, but I don't think that's a logical argument. It's like saying something like "Women have gone through so much to get the right to vote, so they should be happy with that and not worry about the wage gap." And as for the accurate record keeping, that's been discussed above, and it seems the solution would be just listing them as "birth parent", or something similar.

    Here's the ruby gem page and here's the github. Right now it comes with a command line browser that can browse the front page and group pages with no sorting options, and you can view the contents of a topic (link or text) aswell as the comments. The methods defined in lib/tilde-scraper/api.rb can be used to scrape tildes pages into Group, Page, Topic, and Comment objects.

    Right now it's super basic and messy, but I figured if anyone was interested in it it would be the people here.

    Big oops is a lot more fun sounding than critical fail

    BIG OOPS
    Rolling a 1 during battle will result in a big oops. Perhaps even
    the biggest of oops. You will completely miss your attack, and,
    in certain cases, may even hurt yourself or your teammates.
    Likewise, rolling a 1 on any skill or stat check will result in your
    character’s worst possible outcome in their current situation.
