I understand the intent of the message, but I had to laugh at:

in no way do we condone granting or purchasing player items in exchange for money

Like the only thing I will get for money this decade is a spin of the chocolate wheel.

I wonder if EA even noticed that they just said what the courts in NL already established, buying loot boxes IS gambling when you can monetize what you get.. which you can.....

"inventing" "diverse" skin tone pixel art smilies.... my artist side is laughing so had I nearly broke a rib

Ah.. so the headline is just flat out wrong. She didn't invent diverse skin tone pixel art smilies, she made an APP that automatically applied color to smilies depending on user settings (which IS neat and an invention) so my artist side is now on her side. WTF Apple?

Ps.: Washington Post has to be one of the ugliest sites I ever visited... my goodness

Well, if I found the correct translation, there are plenty of similar sayings in English.

Yeh, but that ain't making it any less depressing. This was actually already decided when the EU backpaddeled after Ursula "the Censorship Master" von der Leinen got somehow elected. One of the worst politicians in the entirety of Germany.

Didn't the EU vote to allow each of the member states to eliminate DST if they wanted to?

The vote was that the EU was supposed to find compromise applying to all member states.. that was in 2018

Btw. this is even a meme in German language itself

"Wenn du nicht mehr weiter weißt, machst du einen Arbeitskreis"

And that's what the EU did

I had to google what enbulking means and I still have no idea what it means

what is an "enbulking conversation" and what does it say about someone when he/she/it/they use fantasy words.

Just end it, this waste of energy
Nobody needs DST
it makes people sick
in a pandemic lockdown, it's downright irrelevant what light we have, might as well be all dark, not like you can go anywhere

And every year, they promise to end it and then don't

And if like me, you took part in the poll about it that the EU did, you are now equally shocked facing because the EU managed to not do anything again. .and again.. and again. It's what I expect of EU now by default, abject indifferent failure.

This was 2018

I know I can be truly naive sometimes, but holy shit.....it really is just a stack of shipping containers? I was sure that was a joke.

It's not. Look at the image I linked to. There are a stack of shipping containers NEXT to the building. But the main buildings are those two bigger ones. Granted they have a very slight resemblance to containers but it's really just a bunch of vents.

That stack of containers is SBG1 Their first modular datacenter, the towers (SBG2 and 3/4) are the evolutions of that. But yeah, OVH calls them containers but they are not shipping containers.. you wouldn't legally be allowed to ship them anywhere either, not with a UPS installed anyway. This is also why this datacenter type never really got anywhere.... and why IT guys regard OVH as the "container hoster" - to us it's literally a meme.

It will be very interesting to hear how this could even have happened

2 datacenter nodes burned down (as in, 2 separate datacenters in 1 building).. I am still laughing.. zero fire protection triggered, zero fire prevention triggered

This is what you get, when you pay for the cheapest hosting.

SBG2 Destroyed (12 of 12 containers destroyed)
SBG1 Damaged (4 of 12 containers destroyed)

And in case you are confused about "building" this is OVH, aka, they host in literal shipping containers
Stacked on top
With no fire suppression

Here a nice image of it

Not quite. But definitely not your top tier facility. haha

I am sure the customers are really happy all their data is now part of the (smoke) cloud though. Gives a whole new meaning to cloud hosting.

Ive used bitwarden for some time. Just export from lastpass and import into bitwarden. Bung em a $10 tip if you like.

Yeah, Bitwarden has 99% of the functionality and I like self-hosting it. I toss the project a donation every year instead of paying for premium. If you ask them they just say "hey leave us a good review on an app store and we're good!".

Nothing wrong with Lastpass trying to monetize though, they've hit critical mass and are trying to do more business subscriptions and etc.

Lastpass got bought out by 2 private equity funds mate. The only mass they had, is that of money bags they flagellate themselves with. Would you trust money bags?

Clearly a typo, it should say "card" not "cards"
All 2 of them
