If god created the earth in 7 days, was earth created for a game jam?

here's what i've been obsessing over for 2+ weeks now. K. kindly sold me their 2016 black friday "New" Nintendo 3DS (non-XL!) and i've been goin nuts updating its hax and curating a library (Nintendolife.com reviews are invaluable)

the state of 3DS custom firmware (CFW)? outstanding. obviously piracy is a huge selling point, but even if you abstain CFW has great benefits like running games at the New 3DS's 4x clockspeed, which took one game i'm playing from ~15fps to a solid 30. amazing. CFW is invaluable.

Developer-driven software distribution is a bad idea, which is why I dislike things like Flatpak.

Having distro maintainers involved in the process and installing your software from a free software distribution like Debian or FreeBSD is a much better distribution of power. The packages can be tuned to suit their environment without the developer having to repackage it for every distro, and the distro maintainers can keep out anti-features like telemetry and advertising.

The middleman may seem annoying to developers, but embrace the model and it'll work for you. Landing packages in your favorite distro isn't actually that hard, and the rest of the distros will follow. If you're an end-user who wants to see some software available for your distro, look into packaging and volunteer - it's easy.

Congratulations, your GRAPES evolved into OLIVES!

It's only FPGA if it comes from the PGA region of France. Otherwise it's just a sparkling gate array.

you've heard of the grateful dead, now here's the ungrateful douche

@devurandom yes, although NATO is also used as an adjective, eg. for watch straps
