Re: I'm vaccinated!

I got my second dose 14 days ago! Z-Wife got hers last Thursday. We can add to the anecdotal evidence that the second provokes stronger reactions. The first dose just had me a bit tired for a day, the second one for three. Z-Wife got a little fever and slept for 40 hours straight :) Still, the stron...

Re: Help with downloading

Downloading past a proxy should be no problem, it's just regular http(s), if you can browse here, you should simply be able to fetch it. Now, playing is another thing entirely, game network protocols are usually incompatible with web proxies, this here is no exception. So if general network access i...

Re: Ladle 125 - May 2nd, 2021

I'll just drop by and say that a while ago I sat down a few hours to see whether a 3 round swiss would suffice to pick out the best 2 out of 5 teams, and it doesn't. Devil's advocate here: it does not have to pick the best 2; that the best team makes it to the final is enough to make it meaningful ...

Re: Political strategy

Oh, it did not pass muster, it was at the time obviously a side rambling to this, where we did engage with it. Sorry for not making the link clear for late comers.

Re: I'm vaccinated!

I got my first shot today! Biontech, because between Word and me they decided to only give AZ it to older people. Word's second dose should also be Biontech by todays recommendations (subject to rapid change). I would have happily taken AstraZeneca, but... not complaining! The bottleneck in the proc...

Re: Feature requests: More player slots and minor player menu change

Do you actually all want to play in 8-Way splitscreen together? Or just switch users more easily? The user switching would have the limitiation, I think, that you can bind each key to only one thing, so two configured players can't have the same turn keys configured even if they don't play at the sa...

Re: Armagetron is going to the Nintendo Switch!

Heh :) As per usual, the game is real. Also as per usual, not really a port of Armagetron, just some new lightcycle game. I do intend to turn this into a simple, complete game. The bits about Armagetron 99 and praise of local play were fake. Yeah, there really are two distinct apps on the Switch tha...

Re: I'm vaccinated!

Don't worry too much. All of the approved vaccines have as near to 100% protection against a deadlty outcome of an infection as one could wish for, even against the mutants (as far as I know). Where they're not perfect is in preventing mild infections and therefore spreading the virus. sylla: for ge...
