Any good group CTFs like a king of the hill this weekend?

Thinking about knocking some folks off the CTF leaderboards this weekend

Does anyone have any suggestions for a #kodi skin that will work well on a curved edge crt screen with lots of loss at the edges?

It's standard def, black and white. Reasonably sharp, but it's from the 50s so text will be a concern.

I need big fonts, I need simple graphics. I need no text or interface details at the edges of the screen.

Wine allows Linux users to have the same experience as one does with Windows, for example, things not working for inscrutable reasons

This is worth sharing.

It's an animated GIF where every frame is a valid QR code that leads to the "Never Gonna Give You Up" rickroll.

That's kind of amazing.

Thinking about making a terminal script to play Twine games (or maybe a similar format)

Universal Law: When confronted with an option for audio input/output devices, Discord will always make the worst and wrong decision.

I'm going to be traveling for the entirety of next week in a place that has zero connectivity. It's going to be nice. Maybe when I get back, I can dive back into some CTFs. I haven't actually touched those in a while and I really enjoy them.

My rank is about to slip, I suspect. Can't let that happen! :O

I'm not sure if it'll be helpful to folks, but I posted the Godot PlayerPrefs component I use for my FOSS game as a separate repo, today.

It is intentionally the simplest design that met my requirements for a persistent player preferences stash. I use it for things like storing things like window configuration and difficulty settings. It's open ended enough to stash a lot in there, though, like player save data probably.

Feel free to use it or just look and see what it does. It's painfully simple. Hope you enjoy.

I don't know why people are surprised that Nintendo is a giant IP bully. Nintendo is so litigious that they created an entire game franchise in honor of one of their lawyers.

The APTs sit and wait, quietly lurking behind the stale processes of tainted binary, a wretched hand whose writhing fingers strangle our poorly scaled cores, a sinister shade, the towering edifice of a decade of incentivized mis-configuration.

I repackaged one of my twine experiences for itch.io, today. Trying to get in the habit of "finishing" things.

This is a really short experience and will probably only be interesting for a handful of people.

It might give you the feels. It might bore you. YMMV.
