    Borderlands 3

    Why I dont like Epic: Their CEO compared choosing the only PC competitor to Windows as moving to Canada after a presidential election They refuse to support Linux Their largest shareholder is a firm run by Chinese oligarchs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epic_Games#Games_as_a_Service_and_Tencent_acquisition_(2012–2018) They used advice from Chinese oligarchs to milk money from tweens: https://techcrunch.com/2018/12/27/epic-fortnite-3-billion-profit/ They used that money to engage in anti-consumer and anti-competitive practices: https://www.engadget.com/2019/04/03/epic-to-continue-game-store-exclusives/ They (likely illegally) collect data without sufficient notice: https://www.thenerdmag.com/epic-games-store-fails-to-comply-with-gdpr/ They inspect steam data without permission (don't worry, Epic said it was totally innocent! They just naively copied a file they totally had no intention of using): https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/epic-promises-to-fix-game-launcher-after-privacy-concerns/ Their store is terrible: That all said, I think their revenue split is cool and I think steam should increase their revenue split to a similar level.

    Risk of Rain 2

    the original was really tight, from what I've seen of this one it's equally tight with a bonus dimension

    *n*x toolchain

    https://www.networkworld.com/article/3337516/linux/the-linux-command-line-cheat-sheet.html This popped up in my news feed for some reason. It mostly focuses on linux but it should also mostly work on your BSD systems as well.

    Learning SQL for fun & profit.

    If you want to make money, I recommend starting with postgres or mariadb. IME, dev shops favor those because they have the desirable characteristics of being free and not terrible. Although, again, IME, as an industry, we've been moving away from classic rdbs. Where I work, we're storing most of our data as JSON in S3 and I'm looking to move what's left in our mysql db into QLDB within the next half decade. A neat tool to look into for reading JSON data is jq, which I use all the time at work: https://stedolan.github.io/jq/ It basically takes JSON data that your software usually manipulates, and turns it into something that you can pipe into the standard *n*x toolset. postgres: https://www.postgresql.org/ MariaDB: https://mariadb.org/ S3: https://aws.amazon.com/s3/ JSON: https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_json_intro.asp QLDB: https://aws.amazon.com/qldb legal disclaimer: the information offered here is my personal opinion and not the opinion of my employer

    Minecraft Server

    What you need? If it's software, I have a pretty shitty systemd script, and a less shitty management script.

    Minecraft Server

    I can throw up a server if anyone is interested. It'll have desktop availability, but it's better than nothing.
