I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's
@Gargron This is Rocco when he was young.
@loke Not sure. I just saw under Steam > Settings > Steam Play > Advanced there's an option to try Proton with everything. When I turned that on every game got an install button on Ubuntu 18.04. It sounds like an Alpha option though, so could be a pleasant surprise or an unstable mess.
@loke Going to give Battlefront 2 a try with Proton. Though I'm assuming it'll run great given its age. There's a setting to run everything on Proton. Might be fun to see how Witcher 3 does.
@loke it must disagree with my eGPU set-up, I guess--16 lanes pushed through 1 via the ExpressCard slot. Though I was able to run it fine on Windows.
Mastodon is great for defeating #censorship . Right Now I'm in a hotel room in mainland #China. Connected to the hotel wifi, and without any VPN, I'm still connected to the world. OTOH, Twitter / Facebook / Google are all blocked by the infamous great #firewall of China.
@deegge have you tried it yet?
Video games, pretentious reading habits
When I ever I read Russian novels I can't help but picture them living in the post-apocalyptic ruins of the Moscow subway. #VideoGamesRuinEverything
Mastodon is not the first online ecosystem for any of us, it’s a chance at a reboot.
So it’s pretty rad that our consensus answer to the question “If given a chance, what would I have done differently online to make for a better future?” is a resounding “be authentic and kind and seek connection with others.”
