That was fixed only a day later, and then also in Proton Experimental.

QuoteCampaign mode: Clear floors filled with robots, and in crucial moments, execute ultraviolent finishes on your enemies to survive.
Being a fan of robots, I'm not sure I'm ok with that.

Anyway, seriously, this game looks really cool - great to see more vibrant stuff emerging after so many generations of games coloured only with sloppy shades of grey-and-brown! LOVE the mock-up box at the end of the trailer, too!
The brown era certainly was interesting.

Microsoft's new Recall AI will take screenshots of everything you do - freaky

Quoting: LexwakPeople always seem to get worked up over nothing, it's as if they're constantly searching for something to worry about. The article discusses the potential consequences if someone were to steal your device and access your personal information. However, if someone gains access to your computer, they could uncover much more than just random screenshots taken out of context. If privacy concerns you, you have the option to disable Recall from saving anything anyway.

It seems like most people are simply going about their day with their Androids or iPhones, casually browsing through Instagram or YouTube, maybe dropping a comment on Reddit or Twitter. But where do we draw the line on privacy? I say, let people choose their tools and determine what they're comfortable sharing without resorting to unnecessary fear tactics.
How's the job at Microsoft going?

QuoteFirstly, Valve noted KinitoPET as now playable as of this release. Sounds weird: "A psychological horror experience that takes place through Kinito, an early 2000s virtual assistant.".
This one's in a bundle with some other well-received horror-games right now. Shame it's Steam Deck Unsupported, though. should work now :P

Quoting: phil995511It is prohibited for an employer to spy on its employees in any way. This type of function is therefore formally prohibited in the professional field.
Depends where you are. Lots of companies in lots of countries already keep tabs on what employees are doing and looking at.

Quoting: voxLiam, sorry for off-topic and kind of a personal question, but for the year or so you switched multiple distros as far as I can see. You tried fedora and endeavourOS if I remember correctly. I switched to endeavourOs partly because of you and the discussions here. Do you intend to share your experiences and thoughts on the state of the distros today and what was those things that kept you moving? Thanks!
I am currently on Kubuntu, it's stable and does what I need. I don't see the need to be on a constantly rolling distro, rolling always breaks too many little things for my tastes.

I think you're just seeing his profile picture from YouTube's UI lol

Either is fine really, PayPal probably has less fees, especially good if you're not bothered about any special status.

Quoting: grigiDo you have alternative donation platforms than Patreon or once-off paypal?
I honestly don't care about the rewards, I just want as much of my money to arrive at you Liam. (As in the minimum charges).

I'm asking because Patreon has been in the news for taking what many people think is an unfair percentage of fees.
Nope. Every additional platform is more admin/tax work for me. Paypal and Patreon keep it simple and I am personally happy with both.
