    It is an interesting sign of the times that a megapublisher like EA is outsourcing the physical editions to a boutique third party.

    Sanders 2016 campaign is a perfect example of why it can be a good idea to go the distance.
    His current campaign would not be viable without the super delegate and caucus reforms that he negotiated at the 2016 DNC. Without staying in the race to accrue 46% of pledged delegates he would not have had a strong enough hand to accomplish this.

    Open the link with a media player such as VLC, not your browser.

    I agree with your point but that is literally a photo of people sorted and placed as Klobuchar voters, the out of frame Yang voting section could be twice as large for all we know.

    I conceptualised it as someone save-scumming their way through a dialogue tree in a videogame but now that you point it out, ML is basically the same idea.

    I have never attempted configuring my own server but I have used WordPress event management and mailing list plugins. I faced constant issues with spam detection and eventually resorted to mailchimp.
