My favorite is streaming apps geoblocking contents and blocking access from all known vpn networks, then wondering why piracy on the rise again.

Are the games so bad they're paying you to play them instead of the other way around?

How are things on wayland by the way? From what I understand, it has partial support for running X11 apps, right? Do you use any X11 apps, or were you able to find wayland-native counterparts for everything?

Most of the time, you wouldn't even notice if an app is using xwayland or native wayland... except for apps written with electron/chromium embedded framework (chromium, steam client, spotify, vscode, etc). They're pretty glitchy on xwayland so you'll have to figure out if they accept arguments to use wayland natively, but not all of them support wayland natively yet.

Wait, aren't most desktop environment support switching keyboard layout these days? For example, gnome can do that with super+space or via the language switcher in the top bar. Using a user service to do this seems overkill.

You made one critical error in this perpetual energy machine plan: linux users don't go outside.

Does this mean Iran would stop supplying drones to Russia?

But RISC-V is royalty-free and already supported by Linux and most compiler toolchains. Surely adopting it is more profitable because they don't need to maintain their own fork of Linux kernel and compiler toolchains to support their custom CPU architecture.

It has been confirmed that The Crew does have a hidden offline play capability:

I can now confirm that local save data functionality is indeed built into all our copies and is not absent from the game, we have even obtained a sample save data file. This + the fact that we literally see offline mode in action in the prologue means that there 100% is an offline mode, if anyone was doubting at this point.

Save data dumper has been released to allow dumping your save data that can be used to play offline with a mod later:

Yes. a server emulator for offline play is in development by r00t0.

The save file dumped from ubisoft servers and is planned to be used for the offline mod so no progress will be lost.

However, you only have a limited time, after 31 march the servers will go down and your save file will be forever lost.

And now Ubisoft has deleted the game from everyone's account...

At the height of the Great Famine in 1960, a group of students exiled to the countryside launched a magazine that dared to tell the truth. Their convictions, and the love they bore for one another, were put to the test.

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a constellation of 31 satellites which is used for navigation and precise geodetic position measurements. Data from over 2000 receivers have been analyzed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. JPL's GipsyX software is used to produce these time series and other useful data products. Each site is represented by a green dot. The direction of horizontal motion away from each green dot is represented by a yellow line. The length of the yellow line indicates the rate of motion.
