This week was eventful including a significant and highly anticipated event in my life as a gamer. The long-awaited launch of Dwarf Fortress on Steam and Itch.io.
I’ve stated a few times that the purpose of this blog is to chronicle my journey into self-hosted, decentralized, and federated software and services.
