Yeah, and I don't personally like the current dark theme on the Watch - it's more like a high-contrast theme, and is pretty harsh in itself. I modify it to my liking with a Firefox addon.

I think there's pros and cons on both sides. Dark themes mean your eyes have to work a bit harder to focus, but you are reducing blue light and glare. For me, it's definitely the latter that causes…

Yeah, in one sense it makes no difference which app you choose - the important part is the TOTP system, which is implemented in various apps and solutions. Authy is closed source, and I wouldn't…

I think that's just an FAQ to answer why someone can't use the biometrics on their particular phone. When you set up the app, it asks if you want to encrypt the local database, and you can choose no…

Sure, but that's an extra level of authentication on top - to unlock the app itself. The biometrics play no part in the authentication between parties, just add an extra hurdle for someone having…

With that Twatter story, just to add to that a bit about 2FA (2 factor authentication), because that's how they got these phone numbers; by making a texted authentication necessary for "security". …

Yep - when I see a tower, I feel that should really have a nice wizard modded into it. :p

I always thought the game could be a great platform for doing total conversions, like Enderal. I think…

Sure, and I'm going to give things a chance. But I do think there are some issues to consider, and I do find some of the responses to be a bit hand-wavy, and who-would-care-about-that-anyway.

I think, like some of the other problems, the issue is in the impression people are clearly being given. I would say that if you read your TOS, it's a damn sight stronger than "guidelines". So,…

Well, I think you might have missed my point, if you look at what I said. I don't care about the Codex itself at all, I'm perfectly happy for that to do things its own way, and issues around our…

I think that's pretty clear. If you have blocking plugins setup in your browser that can show what's going on, hoo boy - you hit the jackpot on the Codex. :p

I'd be curious to know if that removes all the tracking services on the site. That's the part I think is the problem. As I said, if we were just being shown dumb banners, without the profiling and…
