I have heard good things about Fastmail.

I've been using Fastmail for almost 8 years and it's been pretty solid for me.

Aware of that, but given that cookie chatbear-session-1 for a frequent visitor of the news forum is maxed out around 3800 bytes, that leaves less space for all the others combined. I guess I'll lower that limit to 3600 and then we'll have to see how it goes. It just means fewer remembered threads for everyone.

Is this to mark which messages in the thread are new? If you're okay to rely on JavaScript a little more for this, it could also be put into local storage of the browser which has much larger limits and isn't sent to the server on every request.

I wish there would finally be a 100% DirectX compatible alternative to Windows. I would switch in a heartbeat. Gaming is the only thing keeping me on Microsoft's shit OS.

Data point of one here but I switched to Linux early last year and have only had to boot into Windows for one game throughout the whole year. However, I don't really play competitive multiplayer games so I don't need to deal with anti-cheats that don't work which I've heard might be a problem. Valve has done some pretty incredible work with Proton.

I've had a lot of fun with this one. It's a really interesting mix of city builder and rogue-lite. The early game starts out a little slow but has a lot of interesting decision making later on.

It's a neat, unique game. However, I found it lost its charm for me as I raised the difficulty. It feels annoying that you can't actually explore the map because it scales the difficulty too quickly. But on easier modes, the game is too slow and there's a lot of waiting.

Yeah that's a fair assessment. I played it as a pretty chill game early on without raising the difficulty much, the music and visuals are nice and it's not particularly challenging at the easier difficulties. Later on I bumped up the difficulty and have been enjoying some of the interesting decision making it has when you're trying to balance priorities and goals. It's nice that it can work both ways.

which I guess means you find it and download it from some website, because otherwise how would you get it into your PC?

If you own the cartridge it's not usually that hard to rip your own ROMs. You can get a RetroBlaster which lets you do it over USB. I tend to play all my Switch games on PC these days after ripping the cartridge.

I enjoyed Horizon Zero Dawn when I played it earlier this year, though it did wear thin by the end. Is the sequel fresh enough to warrant a play through or is it just more of the same?

You can definitely hold off and pick this one up later if you just played Zero Dawn recently, unless you're heavily invested in the story and world, which Forbidden West does a good job expanding on.

In terms of gameplay it does have some improvements, but not enough to keep it fresh if Zero Dawn was wearing thin by the end. Also some parts were a regression as you have to do some machine farming to unlock overriding for the more powerful machines when you complete their cauldron which felt a bit tedious.

I finished it recently and at some point in my playthrough just decided to push the main story to complete it. I haven't played the DLC so I might pick this up on PC at some point in the future to play that.

"Incredibly, some of Steam’s early adopter accounts are still actively in use today, a full two decades after their creation."

Nice bit of casual ageism there. I didn't quite make the mark. I created mine in January 2004, so still have a few months until 20 years. I bet I'm not the only one on this board, either.

October 10th here, so a little under a month for mine.

I tried this for a few hours yesterday, and might give it a bit longer today. The art style is pretty nice and moving around the world was pretty fluid.

The puzzles themselves were a bit on the easy and not super interesting side after you've done the same type of puzzle a few times. There is a fair amount of variety in the types of puzzles and a lot of them so it could be a pretty fun game to jump into to wind down to.

Anecdotally, the game ran fine for me in Act 3 on Linux and I didn't seem to run into many of the issues others have been complaining about. I definitely ran into some, and the game did crash I think 3 times during my 150ish hour playthrough but I was saving often so it was mostly a minor inconvenience. I guess I did things in a more expected/tested order on my first playthrough and thoroughly enjoyed the game. Started a second run as well, taking it a little slower to give them time to patch more things as I continue playing.

The European Y/M/D notation for today is 23/3/23, which is also a palindrome.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it isn't a palindrome. Forwards it's 23/3/23, backwards it's 32/3/32 which are different from each other.
