apparently EA are intending to make a remaster of #commandanconquer - yay! They've even pledged to have no microtransactions and hopefully they'll be no other shit involved.
today in #heartsofiron: I used a Cold War mod and had the Republic of China win the initial Civil War. In that game it's now October 1956 and WW3 has started over two unrelated events in Albania and Vietnam.
today on hypocrisy: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/brexiteer-hard-brexit-eu-passport-buy-malta-christopher-chandler-single-market-customs-union-a8185336.html. 'A New Zealand-born backer of a think tank advocating a hard Brexit has obtained an EU passport through Malta, it has been reported.' Hypocritical bastard, buying his way into rights he wants to see removed from other people.

an example of how horribly off the rails this #heartsofiron road-to-56 game has gotten: I loaded it to see what happens next...and the first dialog is a notification that the netherlands have joined MERCOSUL (A South American faction led by Brazil) in 1945.
Continuing the #fungus theme.
Branching Oyster Mushroom - Pleurotus cornucopiae
This white #mushroom is very closely related to the Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) which is cultivated & sold commercially. Apparently, as well as looking like the bivalve, they both taste like it.
The botanical name partly comes from the Latin word "pleuro" which means to the side, in reference to the position of the stem to the cap.
apparently #nodejs is looking into reducing the need for node_modules.
Oh, and apparently npm made a thing that automagically downloads, validates and installs things on require() or something?
not tooting much on #mastodon because i'm somewhere else for a week with a laptop that isn't conducive for tooting
so today i went out shopping and got a significant amount of steam credit and a 3-in-volume of #manga
a private instance of mastodon for a few people.
