@schratze Improved version.
Couldn't find the font (probably custom-drawn) so I went for silly instead.
It's fascinating how a #Rust edition can change so much more than just reserve a few more keywords — all while keeping crates that use different editions compatible.
Some recent examples:
• the prelude can be changed
• editions can change whether certain impls/methods are considered during method resolution
• built-in macros can change
• pretty much anything about closures and captures can be changed
• pattern matching can similarly be changed arbitrarily
• deprecated surface syntax can be removed
Fun @matrix experiment of the day: if you wipe most of your history by setting a retention of 3 minutes instead of 3 months by mistake (which will delete every message older than 3 minutes on your instance), and grow back that limit to 1 year, your instance will self-heal by retrieving the federated events from other instances.
Of course, this only works for federated events (i.e. not rooms with only members from your instance) and if at least another instance still has the events.
Humble Bundle constantly redefining "Humble"
in case you were unaware: Humble Bundle used to be called the Humble Indie Bundle. it was a bundle of independently developed games, and it was humble because you could pay what you want; choose what portion of the money went to the devs, charity, and Humble; and the games were DRM-free and cross-platform.
after a while, the Indie was dropped from the name as they began to start bundling games from big publishers. the cross-platform and DRM-free requirements were removed. they stopped letting you pay what you want and imposed minimum amounts on their bundles.
now, the last pillar of their definition of Humble is being dropped, as they're going to limit the choice to send a portion of purchases to charity, capping at 15%. before, you could choose to donate the full percentage to charity if you wanted a game but didn't want to support the devs, and that's not allowed now.
they're trying to spin this as improving donations to charity, but it's just a cap. and another reminder -- Humble Bundle is owned by IGN now.
