  4. @emacsen @kavbojka @handle I'm really an outsider in the sense that I don't attend conferences and so don't have much of a sense of what happens other than the published talks. From my point of view I don't think you can take the money from a megacorp and then expect to have critical discussions about them which are devoid of influence. Even if only subconsciously, people will know that if they criticize too much then the money will vanish and future conferences won't happen.

  5. @scribus It worked when trying to learn German to a moderate degree.

    "Ich saufe darum bin ich" But you need to be carefull lest you get to the "Saufen bis zum Verlust der Muttersprache" stage too quickly.

    Something Something Oktoberfest.

  6. I kinda wish there was an English news source from/about Brazil. There seems to be a LOT going on there which is cause for some ruckus with some of my Brazillian co-workers. Even though what is happening is like half a planet away and 'it' probably does not change anything if you are angry about it.

    That said I'd kinda like to know more in-detail stuff.

  8. I just learned that Elon Musk is planning to use cold gas thrusters to make cars fly.

    I need more booze for this to make sense.

  9. @nerthos Agreed, 'seems' is the operational word. I am sorry if I unwittingly took your words out of context but, well. Lets just agree that if it were up to people like you and me that Kero the Wolf would be in jail already.

    We are going to have to trust the proper agencies to step in and 'protect us' from not only the evils that have happened but also the obvious nightmare-fuel material

    Waiting is not one of the things I am good at, but at at the very least I am happy that there is no blind burnings of the witches anymore.

  12. "you have to recognize that racism didn’t just disappear overnight in 1964"

    I have read Bill Clinton's Crime Bill. If you have too then you know just how badly I want a clear-cut anti-racism route to take and make future generations proud of things we accomplished.

  13. @nerthos I hope you are not planning to shut down all parks. I am not trying to downplay anything as what is happening is horrible and shut be shut down by any appropriate means. The question is that people have totally different outlooks on what are appropriate means.

    But in the end, things like MSN did not die because of a child grooming, Skype is still around even, and so is Central Park. We'll just have to wait for the FBI (+ perhaps some other country agencies) to conclude their findings.

    Waiting is not one of the things I am good at.

  14. @scribus I bought half a dozen Wii U games in the last month. It's balanced out.

  15. @nerthos With 'thing' you mean the grooming thing, yes? I mean I like Discord and I have seen quite a few doomsayers preaching that Discord will die because of it.

  19. What is going on? Apparently they confirmed Spongebob music, there were only 2 seconds of it before they moved to another song, people reeeee'd and now they are superbly throwing owls around like it is a sport? That is all I was able to comprehend. Probably gonna figure out what is what tomorrow but the problem is that I am curious NOW.

  22. Watching classic Futurama, this quote has aged well: "Listen here, missy. Computers may be twice as fast as they were in 1973, but your average voter is as drunk and stupid as ever. The only thing that's different is me: I've become bitter, and, let's face it, crazy over the years. And once I'm swept into office, I'll sell our children's organs to zoos for meat, and I'll go into people's houses at night and wreck up the place. Muahahaha!"

  24. @scribus 317 Kelvin ? Oh yeah, probably worth the "I am sorry officer, I tripped into this fountain" excuse with those temps.

  25. @scribus Today I found http://rainbowdash.net/url/873795 and it made me think of what you said five days ago.

    But what of the times in between ?

    Well I guess I have a 486DX4 that still accepts EISA cards somewhere. I'll let you know if I find it.

  26. I've fixed my third 3D printer and now all of them are running at the same time. A glorious cacophony of stepper motors.

  27. @scribus Oof, remember how the CHECHA[xx] and CHECKB[xx] Playstation 3 models have Playstation 2 compattibility by hardware support.

    And then the CHECHC[xx] and CHECHE[xx] try to achieve the same thing ( poorly ) by partial software emulation on the PS3's part

    And then from the CHECHG[xx] versions onwards Sony went like "Ahh, noone is going to miss that anyway"

    And then the OtherOS kerfuffle that only got resolved in some class action lawsuit in 2018 ?

    Backwards compattibility really is quite like a fanged animal, with teeth, pretending to be a treasure chest.

  28. @adiwan Oh yes, I know what you mean with VGA. None of my laptops had VGA and it was REALLY annoying untill I dumpsterdove myself an HP pavilion ( with an i7, rather old generation ). and repaired it by mostly figuring out the charge port was broken and putting on a pigtail ( RC-car battery cable ). It charges and it works, but looks like an IED. Still I find myself using it WAY too much for 'old' stuff. This includes the projector in the conferance room at work ( who still has a projector that only has VGA & DVI-A. really ? Cmon now )

    But yeah, eventually products with things like 802.11b and possibly Bluetooth 2.0 and lower will be no longer supported by new-tech. When that happens people are probably going to be happy that some 'nerd' still has a way to recover that one vacation photo from 2005.

    Bonus : What do you mean it is only 600 kilopixel ? I do not care, I just know it looks like Chungus

  29. @drinkingpony I'm so old-fashioned that my laptop (that I'm currently using) has VGA.
