Before everyone gets their pitchforks out - Person from the image posted on Hacker News, CEO replied and said this charge shouldn’t have happened and they wouldn’t be charging the client anything.

Yeah but then you have a customer calling and screaming at you “We just launched our big sale of the year and our site has been down for an hour!!!”.

If you let them burst and bill them, you end up with angry clients. If you don’t, you end up with angry clients. Letting them burst and being forgiving with the bill is the better approach IMHO.

    Picked it up on a whim last night, have been playing it since.

    I ran into it in a mall in London, was pretty surprised.

    Click bait title, as usual the answer is no.

    Fucking click bait.

    Well that’s a thing trying to capitalize on my youth.

    Man I miss the early days of lan parties. Struggling to figure out how to plug my friends computer into mine via BNC cables (didn’t know we needed terminators) when we got our first ever network cards. Then later the big lan games of blood, duke 3d, quake, even starcraft.

    Good times.

    Maybe, or maybe in another 30 years people will just be commenting how nice it was to be alive during the birth of the metaverse and giant corporations.

    Probably not though.

    The generator sounds like the Shifter mod, it wasn’t part of the stock game.

    Skiing was a bug in tribes 1 that they embraced.

    @Shadow@lemmy.ca avatar

    Oh sorry you’re totally right. I was thinking of one of the deployable that Shifter added.

    He’s a tech icon. I think this belongs here just fine.

    Honestly… I don’t think I like it. Trying to go from a Logitech TKL keyboard I love to this, it’s just too much of a reduction. I avg 150wpm today and I can do about 20 on the cheapino, and I haven’t even started to type symbols with it yet. It’s just too much of a learning curve / impact for me to be able to cut over (I type a lot for work).

    It was a great first intro build though, and I’m already starting to plan out my dactyl.

    I haven’t found either yet. Same for the numpad.

    I don’t.

    It uses layers, so shift for example is F or J. You push and hold one or the other, then push the second letter that you want capitalized. It’s weird and hurts my brain, but apparently it’s really efficient if you suck it up and adapt.

    I’m on the edge of doing a very similar build, but how do you find the buttons in front of the trackball? Is the ball big enough you don’t hit those keys accidentally?

    Shadow,
    @Shadow@lemmy.ca avatar

    Is that breakout board you’re using for the trackball? (I just ordered a raw sensor)

    Shadow,
    @Shadow@lemmy.ca avatar

    Thanks, wasn’t aware of the nicer versions on tindie.

    If you’re a fan of co-op survival and adventure games, Grounded is great. There’s also Raft which is a more chill style adventure game.

    Personally I’m probably picking up in this sale:

    • System Shock
    • Outer Wilds
    • Aquatico
    • Pummel Party
    • The Long Dark: Survival Edition
    • A Way Out
    • Phasmophobia
    • Halo: The Master Chief Collection
    • Voidtrain
