Can we please, please โ€“ PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ

PRE ๐Ÿ‘ TTY ๐Ÿ‘ PLEASE

And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

It's a good thing there was no internet in the 1600s.

I mean it, by the way.

He knows the rebellion is nothing but a mob, and the mob's brainless, lead mostly by Idealsโ„ข, Justiceโ„ข and this cunt with a pretty face who claims he's the true heir to the throne (he lied, by the way).

Yet Blood wasn't able to do anything with it, losing sympathy with some people he... well, genuinely used to talk with (nor he didn't really care).

From armed rebels and a sceptical soldier-turned-doctor, this story can only proceed in dangerous ways.

So I've started chewing through this book called Captain Blood yesterday, in two languages at once. I'm still yet to get to him actually becoming a captain, but holy shit

In brighter news, it comes with, like, four games, which are Solitaire, Sudoku, Chess, and a really weird version of Snake.

I mean, it's already kind of unusual to see a more action-ey game on an e-paper display, but this Snake... oh boy

this Snake already moves at a moderately high speed, starts you off with a whopping five points instead of zero, places obstacles on the map randomly and makes you avoid a ๏ผง๏ผฉ๏ผก๏ผฎ๏ผด ๏ผฅ๏ผฎ๏ผฅ๏ผญ๏ผน ๏ผณ๏ผฎ๏ผก๏ผซ๏ผฅ ๏ผท๏ผจ๏ผฏ ๏ผก๏ผฌ๏ผณ๏ผฏ ๏ผฅ๏ผก๏ผด๏ผณ

It's also kind enough to not crash into you.

Yeah, basically, this means I'd have to use this thing as a Nokia 3310 but instead of being a communication device, it can only do books well.

Honestly, I could live with that, but man the RSS part of it is just *severely* undercooked.
