@PeterCxy The future of computing - a networked screen which you have to connect to megacorp's servers.

I just don't understand why would anyone invest in "cloud" gaming. If you are gonna need a datacenter wherever the players live to ensure even basic playable latency, what's the point of it then? Isn't it just dumb when everyone can just buy their own gaming hardware?


And Chinese people will keep using Baidu even with better choices. That's not something Google's coming back or not would do any change to at all.

Looked to get an Vega 56 and realized that AMD hasn't got a CUDA counterpart yet.

"This Linux virus is a total jerk, even by malware standards" - another misleading item about already-compromised #gnu #linux boxes, being compared to #windows with back doors by design

Black Friday deals on ALL KDE SOFTWARE! 100% OFF! (also tomorrow, and the day after that, and the next day, and the next one after that too, and ...)

News flash: After an evening of hacking, our free and open source Disqus clone now supports OAuth sign-in via 🐘 Mastodon!

(so if you want to put a comment form on your static blog/website and want to allow your users to sign in via Mastodon, this might be for you)
