@ink_slinger I have been looking forward to those drinks too, I am excited to see more alternatives.
In the last decade my consumption of alcohol has decreased a lot, some of it was due to low availability but mainly because the low isn't worth the high anymore, these new options sound a lot more interesting.
I'm too old for hangovers.
The article has a fair point though, nothing will ever replace a fine Cognac or Scotch.
This guy is trying to make Synthohol a real thing.
Just had my first encounter with an actual error code 451 in the wild. Apparently the NH-based Union Leader newspaper / media site decided it was easier to block all of Europe than to become #GDPR-compliant! (I am traveling in EU & wanted to read a story shared by a NH friend. I guess I will have to wait until back in USA)

If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:
Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)
Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.
Hey since everyone else is doing #introductions
I was born in the Highlands of Scotland 400 years ago and I am not alone. There are others like me, some good, some evil. For centuries I have battled the forces of darkness, with holy ground my only refuge. I cannot die, unless you take my head, and with it my power. In the end there can be only one. I am Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander

Not to show off but I'm at 4 win on 4 games on PUBG Mobile 😊
We're nowhere near replacing more established gaming platforms for now, maybe forever but there's something I like. I'm not entirely sure why but my ping seems to be low enough to play online on mobile platforms but not on PC. PUBG on steam maintains 700 to 1000 ping but the mobile one, on the same connection, averages at 300-400.
While I dislike FPSs on mobile, PUBG made it the best it can be, I think. That second shoot button on the left is a superb idea.
As far as emulators are concerned, anything turn based works great, I love playing through FF on my phone. Masterpieces like "Legend of Dragoon" are to be avoided though. The action sequence things when you attack make mobile gaming impractical.
I had been on the fence a while. I don't have anything against meat per se but the carbon footprint of bacon versus beans is insane.
I had been cutting back for years but what gave me the final push was getting engaged to a vegan. She is very supportive of my transition and doesn't shame me for my relapses.
Also we make our own fake cheese with cashews and vegan poutine is life :P
One of the essays in "The End of Trust" was about how the internet evolved from communities of like-minded people to a system that, basically, fosters narcissism.
My original reaction was to think: "MASTODON IS A COMMUNITY LIKE IN INTERWEBZ OF OLD!"
But is it? I mean in a sense I think it is, it feels far more cozy and intimate than the bird site and others. But at the same time, what are we communal about in here?
I suppose it is very dependant on your instance.
University of California terminates subscriptions with world’s largest scientific publisher Elsevier in push for open access to publicly funded research.
The tech I use for work is custom built in house so it works pretty well but I get how you feel man. I feel the same way about a few industries: most notoriously the car industry, what's up with all those identical looking SUVs?
The culprit is the same everywhere: consumerism. Catering to the lowest common denominator brought us here.
