Game idea! Multiplayer. Start with £100 each. There are some number N of "rounds". A "round" is like an auction: in each round there are 10 (?) gems to be purchased. The price starts at £100 and counts down over time; the first person to say "I want them" gets the gems for that round, at the price they're at. Obviously you can't spend more money than you've got. Winner has the most gems at the end. So the tension is "wait longer to save money, but if you wait too long someone will get in first".
ok, peeps, I'm looking for advice on Android podcasting apps. Since they all cost money, I'm loath to try them out (I don't mind paying, but paying and refunding a bunch of them is annoying). The main things I'm looking for are: downloading new episodes without having to be told; some way to cap the amount of stored files to a filesize limit (so if we're up to say 400MB of downloads, remove the oldest one, or similar); ideally some way to add subscriptions from my desktop machine. Suggestions?
Hearing people talk about Brave and @BrendanEich and money and crypto currency, which is nice, speaking as a wholly brave user on phone for many months now. I need to read up and understand why it's some newly invented currency they're using, though, and decide what I think about that
24 hours with Alexa. Is it the future? Yep. Maybe. Maybe. Yep.
Across from the window of my flat there is this big ugly wall. It would be nice if it were pretty. Say, by having some kind of excellent massive mural painted on it. I haven't looked into this at all, but: what's involved in getting a big mural there? (Other than "permission from the owner", obvs). Are there rules about this sort of thing? Or can you just paint what you like on walls? Who out there might pay for this? Community arts projects? https://mastodon.social/media/T60VHrjA1yZgdZ4jhzA
Ok, I need a bit of help from US people here. I'm just reading an article with the following phrase in: "Researchers specifically focused on white, working-class voters—people without college degrees or salaried jobs." That implies that anyone who isn't salaried is working class. Is that true? It's not true in the UK; someone who works in a factory is generally still paid a monthly standard wage, not a zero-hours piecework contract.
I told you, you can have an ice cream when we get there.
