the xbox 360 is about as old now as the sega mega drive/genesis was when the xbox 360 came out

@xerz Sadly I don't have sources because all I've heard is random bits and pieces from people in my vicinity (IRL or on places like IRC or Reddit or wherever), since being involved in tech in Finland inevitably means you'll come across ex-Nokians everywhere

@tamperehacklab Vinkki: kun teidän etusivulla on jo linkki tähän Mastodon-profiiliin, niin siihen linkkiin kannattaa lisätä HTML-attribuutti rel='me' (eli siitä tulisi muotoa <a rel='me' href=...).
