    This feels like "all the shady and bad stuff isn't our fault, it's the GOVERNMENT'S. If you want better practices protest against them, not us"

    I'm glad there's another high end headset coming out now that Oculus is essentially selling windows mixed reality.

    Yeah that would be great, hopefully valve focuses more on that this time.

    I have an amazon server that I use to host my email and my simple website. I'm considering setting a vpn up on it, but I'm not sure if it's worth it. Would my data be as secure as with 3rd party vpns? Would Amazon see my traffic? It seems like if I go this route, anything that I do could be traced back to me, because the see the ip of my server and than ask amazon who owns it.

    Aren't there other videos on their channel that aren't very accurate, other than the two they mentioned? I've heard that their quantum computing video is full of bullshit.

    As someone who lives in Orlando, maybe this will finally give me a reason to go to a park. I'm usually not into it because it's just not that entertaining to stand in the sun all day for a few minutes of rides, and makes me feel gross and super consumerist, but star wars is my jam, haha.

    I'm a senior in highschool, and I've been DMing for my friends for about 1.5 months. We're all new to it, but it's a ton of fun. We started with the starter kit adventure (Lost Mines of Phandelver), and now we're running Waterdeep: Dragon Heist (I'm not yet confident enough to write my own). I have 4 players, two of them telecommuting from 1000 miles away, and we're trying to bring a few more people in. A lot of people say that they're interested in it, and a lot more people than I thought watch D&D videos or listen to podcasts.

    I bought a starter pack in 2015, played a few dog fights and races at 25fps, and then forgot about it. I reinstalled it today and was amazed at all the progress. There's some really cool stuff, like having your own expressions mapped onto your characters face with a webcam, or how you can get on your ship, jump to another planet, descend through the atmosphere and land at a camp, get out of your ship, and go inside, all seamlessly with no load screens.

    The game looks fantastic, and runs a lot better too (I did upgrade, my pc, but not that much. I have a ryzen 5 2600 and a radeon 570)

    Do any of you play? What do you think about the game?

    Is there anyway to safely have a smart phone? I know that you can replace google's android with lineage, but your carrier (and possibly even hardware backdoors) will always be taking your data.
