And they say there's some sort of so-called mental health crisis...
  • If they're getting inundated with it to the point it's affecting their actual mental health, then they obviously need to change something. Whether it's the quantity or the quality of the content they consume. Logging off and going outside is always an option.

  • And they say there's some sort of so-called mental health crisis...
  • If someone is engaging in a certain kind of content, I would argue that's the content they want to see. It might not be what they enjoy seeing, or what's good for them, but you can't seek out right wing content and then tell me you don't want to see right wing content. At some point, there has to be a level of personal liability here.

  • And they say there's some sort of so-called mental health crisis...
  • I mean, it's not like social media doomerism is some mandatory thing. The internet shows us what we want to see - if someone wants to spend their whole life reading about every possible bad thing in the world, that's on them.

  • Are microservices really the future?
  • I guess what I'm saying is that I think things will generally stay balanced the way they are. Monoliths are never going to completely die out, and neither are microservices.

    They both serve different functions, so there's no reason to think one will "win" over the other.

  • rule (reminder don't take dietary advice from internet strangers)
  • Do people really talk about their metabolism that much? Or are some people just so self-conscious about their weight and eating habits that they place particular weight on those comments such that they appear to be more frequent than they actually are?

  • Thoughts on the Fallout RPG?

    Picked up the Fallout RPG starter set, and I'm curious to hear people's opinions on it.

    From what I gather, it released in 2021, but the first time I saw it was in the store a few days ago - on display no doubt due to the success of the TV show.

    I've always been a fan of the Fallout setting, and from what (very) little I've read while flipping through the rulebook, it seems to be almost a mixture of d20 and Fate? The rules seem to have some crunch, while also allowing room for roleplay - again, from what I can tell at a glance.

    I'm curious if anyone here has run this game, and what you thought. Do the rules make sense in practice? Did you have fun with it? And if you played through the example module, how was it?


    Dynamic DNS vs Dedicated VPN IP

    Hi everyone!

    I'm looking into self-hosting, and I currently have dynamic DNS set up to point to my home IP.

    My question: is it worth getting a dedicated IP through a VPN?

    I'm pretty technically savvy, but when it comes to networking I lack practical experience. My thought is that pointing my domain to a dedicated IP and routing that traffic to my home IP would be safer - especially if I only allow traffic on certain ports from that IP. Just curious if that idea holds up in practice, or if it's not worth the effort.
