Not on Steam, but the longest owned game(s) installed on my Steam Deck are Might and Magic 4+5: World of Xeen. Of the two we had Might and Magic 5: Darkside of Xeen the longest and had gotten Might and Magic 4: Clouds of Xeen from a friend. But a few years later I bought Clouds at a flea market. The version I have installed at the moment comes from GOG.

Back then it was the floppy release. We really had to make space on our 250 MB HDD to install both games at the same time. When you did that they combined into one big game where you could travel between the two sides of one world and solve them in either order. And you had exclusive quests that only opened up when you had both games, including a third true ending to unify both flat sides into a globe.

I considered that our first "real" PC game. Everything before that had only been simple shareware. I do also have Commander Keen 6 installed, but back then we only had the shareware version.

As a VR game by the Alien Isolation guys would be nice.

Microsoft is reportedly banning Palestinians in the U.S. for life for calling relatives in Gaza

A BBC investigation reveals that Microsoft is permanently banning Palestinians in the U.S. and other countries who use Skype to call relatives in Gaza.

Reportedly, Microsoft has been banning and wiping the accounts of users who have leveraged Skype to contact relatives in Gaza. In some cases, email accounts over a decade old have been locked, destroying access to banking accounts, OneDrive storage, and beyond.

United States resident Salah Elsadi lost his account of over 15 years in the dragnet. "I've had this Hotmail for 15 years. They banned me for no reason, saying I have violated their terms — what terms? Tell me. I've filled out about 50 forms and called them many many times." Eiad Hametto from Saudi Arabia echoed the report, "We are civilians with no political background who just wanted to check on our families. They’ve suspended my email account that I’ve had for nearly 20 years. It was connected to all my work. They killed my life online."

Many of the users affected by the bans expressed that Microsoft may be falsely labelling them as Hamas

I got our engagement rings from a gumball machine. Was really hard to find. And even harder to find one that sold rings. When I had finally found one I didn't have a single 20 cent coin it required on me. I flagged down passerby from across the street. She gave me two coins and refused to take my one Euro in exchange.

Those two coins netted me five balls, which included three rings. I selected the most beautiful and headed home.

We've been married for over 13 years so far.

Should be in /usr/share/applicatons. Copy it to ~/.local/share/applications to edit it.

With a workaround you can use Onboard. You still need Maliit for the lock screen.

But yeah, the keyboard situation on KDE is abysmal. I've seen a little bit of movement on some of the Maliit bug reports. But nothing substantial yet.

On my Steam Deck I use Steam's keyboard most of the time, Onboard when I need special keys and Maliit for the lock screen.

Probably Bee Maja, Wickie and the strong men or Heidi. Tons of classic German children's shows are actually animes.

Elmo is a horror game?

With a NSFW account? Because all posts including uploads go first to your own instance and are federated over a few seconds later.

With every version of Android it seems to be harder and harder to get real time notifications anywhere near real time.

Twitch notifications, Signal, WhatsApp, I often get these ten to thirty minutes too late.

I've excluded them from battery optimisation but that doesn't seem to do anything. And I can't find anything else.

I don't care about battery usage. I'm always near a charger.

Android 13 on a Fairphone 3.

Edit: I've disabled DOZE according to Hopefully that helps.
