Alright, so it's not fair to compare really ANY game of it's time to Link's Awakening, so let's go with something a little weirder. More... even ground.

Here's Dragon Warrior's OST, mixed together like "low key dragon warrior vibes to chill/relax/study to" video:

Each song is distinct, most are actually really nice, and they use the Game Boy's ability to do pitch shifts to get really nice vibratos.

Google's ReCAPTCHA is forcing people to mark mailboxes as parking meters.

nitter.eu/jsrailton/status/137

This is because the NN was trained to see these as parking meters - either by mislabeled images or enough people marking them as parking meters.

And I can see why they would - these mailboxes do look like parking meters to me, a person who doesn't live in the US and has very different mailbox designs.

I've been having the same problem with identifying US style crossroads. Maybe forcing a global audience to display proficiency in local US cultural concepts and designs isn't a good approach for human verification.

the worst thing you can possibly do to yourself is assume "ok, I'm there, I'm DONE" and stop progressing
this is how you become a dumbass boomer

'Calling out' surveillance capitalists seems unproductive. Their 'users' know the deal and either can't be bothered to migrate or literally do not care. The former will off-board themselves (using the path of least resistance) if/when their tolerance runs out.

The Caddyfile adapter will actually parse the input for you and give you the list of server blocks, and options, and it's up to your adapter to make sense of that structure and turn it into a JSON config.

In a way, it is that canal that is sideways around the ship.

The whole Suez canal blockage once again highlights how fragile global supply chains are. What's not being discussed much is that breakdowns in supply chains are going to be a lot more common due to climate change. We need to start building robust systems going forward.

How to Use Mastodon: "It's pretty fucking simple." (video)

Similar to how one may choose between the predatory practices of the banking industry or to simply save their money with a local cooperative in a Credit Union, the decision may be made to host your data with known advertising predators or to choose a platform you can trust.
