Internet legends abound that ‘Super Mario 64’ is haunted. With ‘Super Mario 3D All-Stars’ remaster out now, we’ll finally know for sure.

Back in the day, I lied to my older brother about a haunted level in Super Mario 64 that didn’t exist. In this level I made up, Wario would appear if you ran three times in the reverse direction on a merry-go-round. Once you found him, I said, the game cartridge would become cursed.

Of course my brother never found the secret Wario level. I was a needy younger sibling; I’d churn up all sorts of superstition for attention and never think of it again. That is, until earlier this month, when Nintendo announced the game would be, at long last, coming to the Nintendo Switch as part of Super Mario 3D All-Stars, a trio of remasters

U.S., European Allies Among 29 Countries Condemning Internet Shutdowns In Belarus

hafiz wae

Twenty-nine countries including the United States and Germany issued a joint statement on September 17 condemning Belarus for Internet shutdowns and blocking websites after a “fraudulent” presidential election last month.

“In conjunction with restrictive measures and intimidation employed against opposition candidates and the mass arrests and detentions of Belarusian civil society members and journalists, actions to limit access to the Internet, including social media and other digital communication platforms, further erode civic space,” said the statement released by the U.S. State Department.

Belarusian authorities have repeatedly disrupted the Internet and restricted access to independent media websites in a bid to control information and hamper efforts at organizing protests.

In the statement, the 29 countries said that “civic space online is integral to a vibrant civic space off-line” and they would continue to stand by the people of Belarus as they try to make their voices heard despite “oppressive measures.”

Nigeria waives right of way charges to boost internet access

Nigeria’s long-held ambitions of boosting local internet access and speeds largely depend on making it easier for internet providers to operate outside the country’s largest cities.

With major undersea cable projects typically landing in Lagos—the coastal urban center that doubles as its economic hub, there’s a clear gap with internet access and connection quality compared to more interior states. But the government is hoping a temporary policy change will play a role in bridging the gap: it is waiving charges for laying fiber optic cables on federal highways until December 2022.

In theory this should make it significantly cheaper for internet providers to lay down cable infrastructure along major highways across the country. The move could play a key role in helping to meet the targets of Nigeria’s national broadband plan which aims for 90% coverage of the population by 2025 and download speeds of at
