@mikemathia nice! Thanks for reminding me of this show, it’s on the viewing list now :)

Of course. That's my dude.

If you need an additional resource, reach out, I'll give you access to them. :)

Trying to watch 'AQUAMAN: THE LOST KINGDOM' on and it's already clear this one is not as good as the first one. Eh, at least I'm not paying for it. 😐

“‘I would absolutely not fly a Max airplane,’ said Ed Pierson, a former Boeing senior manager. ‘I’ve worked in the factory where they were built, and I saw the pressure employees were under to rush the planes out the door. I tried to get them to shut down before the first crash.’

‘I would tell my family to avoid the Max. I would tell everyone, really,’ said Joe Jacobsen, a former engineer at Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration.”

I know, right. Made me mad. This was a great show. Great cast, great writing and photography.

A rare gem.

@jann Two seasons is a win unfortunately these days. Julia was fun.

PHP core devs when they write on the internals mailing list:

"We should cease defiling our beautiful language with compact() and extract() and variable variables! PHP is too great to permit such abominations!"

PHP core devs when they write code:

ptr ## __ptr
ZEND_MAP_PTR_DEF(type, name) \
type * ZEND_MAP_PTR(name)

CHECK_RGBA_RANGE(component, name, argument_number) \
if (component < 0 || component > gd##) { \

TimStarling, avatar

@Girgias Sure, to be fair, the ZEND_MAP_PTR macro is by Dmitry whose code tends to be brutally pragmatic, and I don't see him on the lists asking for rough edges to be filed down even if it would make his job easier. I can relate since I lean more towards the pragmatic end of that axis (elegance being the other end), although I wish he'd write a comment every once in a while.

Girgias, avatar

@TimStarling Same Tim same.

Frankly, adding comments feels like the main thing I tell people to do when doing code reviews.

@markramseydotcom Is it any good? The only reason I'd watch it is Anson Mount.

**HBO Max trying to market defeaturing as "New Features." What the absolute fuck. **
Aligns directly with @pluralistic comments on enshitification of the internet.

@breadbin Same here.


anyone else enjoying 'Scavengers Reign' as much as i am? it feels like i've been waiting years for a show like this—like a fully animated weird/horror sci-fi in pure Moebius animation. it's beautiful so far!


harriorrihar, avatar

@Chancerubbage @sethkinkaid

Well, for something to be completely Moebius, maybe it would have to be Moebius. 🤷🏽‍♂️

Chancerubbage, avatar

@harriorrihar @sethkinkaid

That birb flying about in that shot, very reminiscent. Mushrooms coulda been anybody though.

TheSpaceshipper, avatar

The first three episodes of the long-awaited Scavengers Reign animated show are now available on Max. Reviews are good.

Don't complain that there's no original sci-fi if you don't watch this original sci-fi story whose art direction seems halfway between Moebius and Ghibli. 😊

#scavengersreign #max #TVshow #animation



@TheSpaceshipper I'll keep tabs on it for when it jumps to a service I subscribe to!


@TheSpaceshipper Just watched 2 episodes. Really good. I love original stuff like this.

#^History of the Development of Max

History of the project, current Ruth2 and Roth2 avatars, testing models, managing artists and the community social media channels.

Further resources for the Max, Maxine and Maxwell mesh avatars is available at

Timeline- 2017 – Shin Ingen creates original Ruth 2.0 and Roth 2.0 avatar meshes in ZBrush.

Max, Maxine and Maxwell

The new underlying avatar created directly in Blender by Ada Radius is called “Max” which can be morphed into female and male variants called “Maxine” and “Maxwell”. The avatar armature is refined via research on the character folder in SecondLife/OpenSim viewers

RuthAndRoth GitHub Organization

In 2019 Fred Beckhusen created the GitHub RuthAndRoth “organization” as a shared community umbrella to improve open source community management of the project. Ada Radius, Ai Austin and Serie Sumei continue to act administrators.

Github Organization:

There are several code and resource repositories available:- Ruth – the original Ruth 2.0 RC#2 and RC#3 and Roth 2.0 RC#1 resources with Git archival branches for the releases.

  • Ruth2 – Female mesh avatar – Ruth2 v4.
  • Roth2 – male mesh avatar – Roth2 v2.
  • Extras – attachments and resources of interest for open source avatars.
  • Skins – open source skins.
  • Reference – archive of Second Life and OpenSimulator avatar-related reference files.
  • Max – repository for the new Max, Maxine and Maxwell avatars.

A simple management approach to code and resource contributions and preparation of releases is taken at present. There is a “Contrib/ which any creator may establish and into which they can commit their own contributions. Hence they can make them available to the community for testing and feedback.

Repository issues can be raised for discussion and a repository “Wiki” allows for useful documentation. Social media channels, in particular via Discord, are available to discuss developments, issues, testing, etc.

An OpenSim community region on OSGrid called “RuthAndRoth” is available to allow any user on any grid that implements the “Hypergrid” protocol to get in-world prepared resources and boxed releases. There is a Second Life marketplace also called “RuthAndRoth” for boxed release items. An avatar “RuthAndRoth Resident” exists in both OpenSim (on OSGrid) and Second Life to “own” the canonical version of each released item.

Pick your Tropical Storm vacation. Cat 2 near Mazatlan? Or a tropical depression fading out near Acapulco?

@ai6yr N6XEW will be there this week too. Exciting times...

@W6KME LOL Can't wait to hear about that one.

Today's storm in Canada is really something to behold with a tail of clouds extending all the way back to TSs & TS in the Eastern Pacific.

Today, I had the wonderful pleasure of having the original developer of the software come and speak to my students! I know nothing about max, , or / (my avenue into code had nothing to do with music) but I followed along and made this little . He was incredibly generous with his time and expertise and he rolled into the room rocking a laptop running Linux which impressed more than a few students. Seriously such an inspiring visit!

In Amsterdam werd een bijeenkomst gehouden tegen het Oekraïense nazisme en de wapenlevering aan Kiev.

van den berg is er ook bij. Bron ''RIA Novosti''

Deelnemers gingen naar het stadsplein met posters "Stop fascisme en nazisme in Oekraïne", "We zijn de oorlog beu", "Laten we voedsel kopen, geen wapens", "De NAVO provoceert een oorlog tegen Rusland en Oekraïne."

has renewed for a third season. The Season 2 finale streams August 24.

Hotchka, avatar

@smooz I've not heard good things about the second season, though.


@Hotchka oh no! I’ll have to wait and see myself. 😬

Studio_Gal, avatar

the show "Barry" is problematic for me, my daughter & SIL swear by it but its style of violence & humor is just not doing it for me.

#HBOMax as was



I loved it, but I get it. I normally avoid watching violence, but Barry was, for me at least, like watching a very well-done, live-action roadrunner/coyote cartoon.

Studio_Gal, avatar


I have evolved a little bit, having accepted the video-game violence of "The Last of Us" (took me a few episodes to understand that what I was watching was literally originally conceived as a game); but the Barry violence is too testosterone-y for me. But my daughter & her husband swear by it, and I've learned (starting w/Breaking Bad) to listen to my kids when they tell me something's good!

@markramseydotcom is this your first time? It is so good.

I really wish the dev team over at Discovery would stop breaking things in the app on .

Now, in order to use captions, you have to go back to the Roku home, turn captions off on your Roku, then go back into the Max app and turn captions on in the app when you start the episode.

You have to repeat that whole process for each individual episode you want to watch. If you start an episode with captions already turned on, they won't work.

I mean, I was on that Legacy plan, now they're offering me 4.99 a month? Should I? Honestly, I would rather pull my hair out if I was forced to watch an ad on the platform. There's nothing else to watch on Max now! like, omg, a million TV shows and still, nothing.2.Watch...

joule, avatar

meh.. I cancelled.
