Hmm, a very large dog just came up to the window (outside) here where I am working--about 5 feet way from me--and starting a loud howling for a few minutes, and left. (not my dog). Last night there was a raccoon there all night, and a coyote wandering around. Now I am wondering what is so interesting right here outside.

(I think it was a dog, because it was wearing a reflective collar... but now, I am not so sure).

(For the record, the dog here inside was very confused--but not alarmed--about why a strange dog was howling at the window)

Updated this article with an extra para on the school system & realise how confusing it is. I speak 4 languages only because I had the luck of growing up in certain areas & studying in schools where Malay, English and Chinese are used often. These days, it's not unusual to find graduates who can only speak ONE language. In , this can be limiting, especially if you cannot speak Bahasa Malaysia, the national language.

Prima che mi scordo, volevo condividere questo #video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HSjJU562e8. 🎥

Discute di un concetto per me non nuovo, ma applicato ad un
#retrogame per #Atari, #YarsRevenge. In pratica, il #gioco usa parte del suo codice per generare #pattern sullo schermo con un’#entropia abbastanza alta da sembrare #random, e creare effetti visivi interessanti. 🎇

Sarebbe definibile #quine, se non fosse che non è completo… manca una parte non trascurabile del #codice macchina, e anche per questo a conti fatti, anche se in teoria è possibile, nella pratica non si può realisticamente recuperare l’intero #programma semplicemente guardando cosa viene mostrato a schermo nella cosiddetta #NeutralZone. 🧱

Questo tipo di roba, ossia la visualizzazione di #dati in modi “non adatti”, mi intriga sempre. Non so perché, ma escono sempre effetti sensoriali unici quando si prendono dati #binari e li visualizzano direttamente per vie multimediali. In questo caso, c’è tanto da analizzare in una vista del genere, e perciò il video è #intrigante. 🪬

Hasuris, to games in Alan Wake 2's PC requirements may leave AMD RX 5000-series and Nvidia GTX 10-series users high and dry

Maybe the graphics are that intense, even at whatever they chose to call “medium”. Try “low” then and see how those work out.

You are worked up about linguistics because it’s nothing more to you at the moment. Just because you’re used to run every other game at “high” or whatever, doesn’t mean this different game has to be the same.

I refuse to agree with “my midrange GPU has to be able to run everything at Ultra for number# of years or I am going ballistics”. I want progress. That’s what I buy new hardware for every few years. If you want graphics to be stuck and don’t advance in any meaningful way, get a console.

What are you trying to imply here? We know that “medium” doesn’t mean any raytracing etc. So what techniques do you think they implemented that could make “medium” so unbelievably good?

My guy, what are you on about? I’m not saying that this game has to run on “high” on a specific configuration, I’m saying that 540p on medium is unacceptable for a last-gen GPU.

Why not go a step further and insinuate that I want Ultra-Mega-Hyper graphics on my 20 year old toaster? You’re already misrepresenting my words to hell and back.

TIL the original Zamboni machine was built on a Jeep, and was popularized by a touring ice skater who happened to witness it: Sonja Henie.

Here is the man himself. Frank Zamboni.

His machine scrapes the ice, augers it into the tank, washes it, storing the dirty rinse-water, and then melts it and spreads it evenly behind with a "towel", where it quickly re-freezes evenly.

If all you do is talk shit on there, it’s going to be a repository of shit talking and that’s not slacks fault.

I do not know the context of this AFP photo, but I feel like it needs a bit of #Photoshop to have him holding something. A large pumpkin? A balloon? A giant round head? #random (Update: to see some great additions, click on "Expand This Post" on the three dots).

Basically, there is no native way to do this. You have to use an extension like uBlock Origin's Element Zapper.

Can we block entire instances?

There are a couple of instances that are clearly misaligned with my values, but they’re very active, so a lot of the communities keep popping up in my feed. I’ve been blocking the communities, but it would be pretty cool if I could just block the entire instance. I know an instance can defederate from another instance. Is...

Hexbear is far more obnoxious than lemmygrad imo. At least lemmygrad doesn’t turn every thread into a middle school “” message board by filling it with cringe jpeg emojis.

Jeopardy game voice: "I'll take random things on social media for 500 please." 😂

I found this in my basement, right next to the washing machine. No idea what kind of spider this is. In person it looks black and white. But in the photo close up you can make out what also looks like a tan or orange-ish dot. The web is also unusually thick and can be visually seen. Located on the northeast American continent

Any ideas what kind of spider this is?
