  • Welche Kleinstpartei hat chancen ins EU-Parlament einzuziehen?
  • Wenn man jede Partei als Neoliberale bezeichnet, verliert das Wort jede Bedeutung.
    Ich habe so etwas schon häufiger geschrieben, aber die Bezeichnung ist an der Stelle einfach albern, dafür gibt es viel zu viele Beispiele. Unter anderem wie Habeck gleich zu Beginn der Regierung den Wachstumsbericht, der zuvor rein das BIP als Maßstab für den Wohlstand genommen hat, in einen Wirtschaftsbericht verändert hat, der den Wohlstand breiter definiert und auch Nachhaltigkeit, Kaufkraft und die Situation ärmerer Menschen berücksichtigt.

    Und wie auch schon andere gesagt haben: Während die Grünen auf Bundesebene in einer Koalition mit einer wirklich neoliberale Partei sind, existiert auf EU-Ebene kein Fraktionszwang und die Abgeordneten stimmen nach Gewissen. Dabei haben die Grünen eigentlich immer vernünftig abgestimmt (wie auch andere in der Fraktion sie z.B. die Piraten).

  • Europapa got the 2. place in its semi-final

    Europapa got 182 out of 216 possible points and scored the second place in the second semi-final. Only a bit less than Israel, this would have probably meant a top 5 placement in the finale.

    Just like with the semi-finals, this is the live thread for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024.

    Joost Klein Thread | AVROTROS releases statement

    As there are so many posts about this topic and it's getting a bit out of hand, I'll create one central place where we can talk about this stuff and share updates. If there are very big updates, I might create a new post as the new megathread but for now, please don't create new posts for updates but post them here as comments.

    Latest news: AVROTROS (the Dutch broadcaster) released a statement. The full statement is in the comments but roughly, they state that against made agreements, Joost Klein was filmed directly after getting off the stage and getting to the greenroom. He indicated he didn't want to be filmed, but this was not respected, leading to a threatening movement from Joost towards the camera, but he did not touch the camera women. This was the whole incident leading to the investigation by EBU and police, according to them.

The investigation into the incident that came out earlier on Friday has not yet been completed, AVROTROS reports. Klein does not miss out on any points: the professional jury assesses his performance in the second semi-final.

    General Eurovision discussion thread

    I think it makes sense to have a general discussion thread to build this community and for you to be able to interact more with each other and talk about stuff.

    You can write about all kinds of Eurovision related things here: What are your current favorite songs? Which one grew on or off you recently? What are your staging suggestions? What are your rankings? What are your predictions? Have fun talking about the songs :D

    3 Eurovision songs in my top 5 most listened songs of 2023

    I am using last.fm to track what music I hear and they provide many detailed statistics to how much I listened, and it turned out that place 1, 2 and 4 of my most-listened songs in 2023 were Eurovision songs. (And the third place being by Måneskin is even ESC-related as well). I thought that's worth to be shared here :D

    What ESC songs did you listen most to in this year? Have there been ESC songs in your most listened songs as well?

    Back to the rules (+ trans rights!)

    I noticed how there's no Spronkus Kronkus at 196 anymore at all, and since they were the original reason I discovered 196 back on Reddit, I thought it would be nice to get back to them and post them for once. :)

    How to easily play Windows only games on macOS

    I just found this community, and in case anyone here has a game they really like and really want to play, but sadly doesn't have a macOS port and is just Windows only, this might help.

    The best option you have is wine-crossover. While the Wine website currently doesn't offer a macOS build, the main macOS Wine maintainer has published the Open Source version wine-crossover, which works amazingly well and can even translate Direct X, meaning that video games work with it. Just use brew install --cask --no-quarantine gcenx/wine/wine-crossover to download it. It will then just be a regular program in your programs folder called Wine. And if you double-click on any .exe-files, it will open them with Wine, translate them in realtime and execute them. Then you just need to download the Windows version of Steam, just open it (with Wine), download the Windows game, and voila, you can easily play it :D This is e.g. how I played Will You Snail (which is a really great game, but sadly only available for Windows) on macOS without any problems.

    This works with most games, and as I said, I personally often use Wine to play Windows only games (or even games whose macOS versions are 32bit, which my computer can't run anymore). However, if a game has too high graphic requirements for your computer to run, or does not work with Wine (which can happen with e.g. some games that use custom DRMs), then another alternative I know is Nvidia GeForce Now, a could streaming service which allows you to use your own bought games (e.g. on Steam) and play it on a remote computer. It is free to try, although you can only play an hour at a time with the free tier. I've used the free tier for years (I mostly played in the middle of the night, so there were no waiting queues), and I even often played games that had a macOS build (like Planet Coaster), but which were too large to fit on my disk space. So this is definitely something I can also recommend and it's a good way to play even the most demanding games without any graphical problems. The downsides are the limitations of the free tier (although the paid tier without queues or the one hour limit is also worth it you really use the service), and that you need at least a medium-well internet connection for it. Also, they sadly don't have the full Steam catalogue but just a very big selection of games.

    So yeah, those are the tools I usually use to play games that don't have a macOS build on my macOS computer. I'm glad if this helps anybody else and have fun playing! :D
