I now have a bookshelf next to my desk with Cyberpunk 2020, Cyberpunk Red, FFG Android (Genesys), GURPS Cyberpunk, Shadowrun, and indie games Retropunk and Dancing with Bullets Under a Neon Sun.

The Irregulars is a pretty terrible way to treat both Sherlock and Holmes. Not sure to what end.

The #Signal messenger has become very problematic lately, and most of its problems come from it being centralised.

You may want to follow and support a decentralised messenger project instead, there are many of them on the Fediverse:

➡️ @snikket_im - New initiative giving XMPP servers & clients a newbie-friendly unified look and feel

➡️ @xmpp - The XMPP standards foundation

➡️ @matrix - Matrix is best known for its Element client

➡️ @delta - Messaging through email

➡️ @briar - P2P messaging
