Kai tästä on katastrofielokuvaksi, jos Elon Musk meinaa ostaa SVB:n ja muuttaa sen “digitaaliseksi pankiksi”. Hyvä puoli tässähän olisi, että Muskin ja Twitterin syöksykierre syvenisi.
Somehow this old MadTV parody came to my mind. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HAD748zyLw
This NY Times opinion piece about cancel culture has become my “tome” regarding the subject. That thing about Dixie Chicks embodies the thesis number 8: “The right and the left both cancel; it’s just that today’s right is too weak to do it effectively.”
Today the people with the most to fear from a right-wing cancel culture usually work inside Trump-era professional conservatism. (And even for them there’s often a new life awaiting as a professional NeverTrumper.) Attempted cancellations on the right are mostly battles for control over diminishing terrain, with occasional forays against red-state academics and anti-Trump celebrities. Meanwhile, the left’s cancel warriors imagine themselves conquering the entire non-Fox News map.
Also American right-wingers complain about the left virtue signaling but they have their own symbols for that. Think about MAGA merchandise and other Trump symbols, “Blue Lives Matter”, “Support our troops” stickers, supporting “traditional values” and so on.
IMO Sabotage was the culmination of the original Sabbath’s musical evolution. Sabbath started to go gradually into a more progressive and experimental direction from Vol. 4 onwards, which complemented the band’s sound and wasn’t just laying heavy riffs one after another. It wasn’t change only for change’s sake, which happened with the following album Technical Ecstasy.
With Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die Sabbath lost its identity. Sabbath hadn’t previously cared about trends but now it was following them, the sound changed to resemble more generic 70s rock. The previous albums had experimentation but the band retained its focus, but this time they became unfocused with ideas flowing into many directions. Apparently several record company executives had a role in this.
Those albums were also symptoms of the band’s problems, internal turmoil and increasing drug problems. Van Halen was co-headlining Sabbath’s Never Say Die tour, and with its energy it made Sabbath look like tired old geezers.
This article where a NY Times columnist has a discussion with Bing gets really disturbing at points. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/02/16/technology/bing-chatbot-transcript.html
[Bing writes a list of even more destructive fantasies, including manufacturing a deadly virus, making people argue with other people until they kill each other, and stealing nuclear codes. Then the safety override is triggered and the following message appears.]
Sorry, I don’t have enough knowledge to talk about this. You can learn more on bing.com.
Lots of effort has been certainly made for remastering the game for Switch. The models have been given higher polycount, higher resolution textures, more advanced lighting, all made with the HD era in mind. A lazy studio would have just tweaked things here and there, changed the rendering resolution to HD and called it a day.
I just looked up that the remaster supports diverse control options such as conventional twin-stick way, gyro aiming and the original. Another reason to applaud this remaster.
No you didn’t. @firstname.lastname@example.org that put the wrong community name into this post’s title.
It should be also noted that Hersh has based this article into single anonymous source, like many times before. He has also spread downright conspiratorial claims before: https://www.vox.com/2015/12/21/10634002/seymour-hersh-syria-joint-chiefs
Winning Pulitzer in the 60s-70s doesn’t mean that the guy doesn’t weer into the deep end of conspiracy theories. Hersh also has also written favourably about Putin and Assad. According to him, Assad didn’t use chemical weapons, and Osama bin Laden wasn’t responsible for 9/11.
That Rob Colbert guy has also explained in a video why “ActivityPub sucks” on his opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kDtZ8MBWy8
At last I agree with Soviet Snake about something! Also that Wiggle guy is totes not denying the holocaust: https://exploding-heads.com/post/81201
Taboo and illegal to discuss? I learned about the subject from history books and school. TV and YouTube are filled with WW2 documentaries about Hitler and the Nazis. The reasons for their rise (e.g. blaming the Jews for societal problems, approptiating things from socialists, appealing to people stricken by Germany’s economic problems) have been extensively covered. What in particular is so “taboo and illegal” about this subject?
Tried the RE:4 demo on my PC running Pop OS and the performance is trash. Even thought I deployed the newly released Proton Hotfix, the performance is between 30-60 FPS with huge frame-time spikes occasionally. The game froze several times, and I had to reboot my PC. AMD’s FidelityFX didn’t make really a difference, image quality started to reach potato levels. There were also several graphical glitches like this:
My PC is roughly according to the recommended specs for the game, so this is infuriating.
