So, serious question: If the declares that a president has sweeping immunity, including over assassinating citizens, what's to stop from just taking out?

The Leaving Rust Gamedev article resonates with most of the frustrations I've had working on the internals of Tangerine (C++) since I converted it from being largely single threaded spaghetti to aggressively concurrent spaghetti, and that's making me think maybe I'd have a better time if I picked a different language for the hot paths, because necessary non-compulsory refactoring also kills iteration time.

I just don't know what though, because nothing ever seems to fit the bill of what I need.

@aeva "aggressively concurrent spaghetti" is what I'm going to call my never-ending-pasta-bowl knock-off at my olive garden competitor.

@Doomed_Daniel @adam that's part of the point. Police originally walked beats and interacted with communities. Slowly but surely they got away from that, first not interacting with the streets except by motor vehicle, to eventually not even being on the streets at all. Every step takes them farther and farther away from being personable, local, identifiable people.

I HATE so incredibly fucking much, jfc. The only food item that completely ruins a meal for me. I cannot stand them, they make me gag. I can't say enough how much I can't stand them. It's not even enough to "pick them off" because I can still taste the juice on whatever they were on.

In other news, thanks whataburger, for mistaking "no onions" with "extra extra extra onions" on my burger. Cool waste of $10.

Why enshittification of the internet is progressing so quickly - options are being destroyed one by one as monopoly power exerts itself.

"...So where have the missing companies gone? A 2023 paper by a trio of academics suggests a fairly straightforward answer: the Magnificent Seven ate them. Or at least a lot of them..."

@shekinahcancook facebook buying oculus in particular was one of the biggest fucking slaps in the face. Oculus was created by literal donations from fans, and the vast majority of their tech was given to them for free from valve under the guise that they were creating a new open standard.

GabeMoralesVR,
@GabeMoralesVR@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@shekinahcancook The story about oculus being acquired, and the coup they tried to pull to steal Alan Yate's team away from Valve, is fucking wild, but it'll probably never be told in public spaces.

The single most wild part of the entire story? When Palmer Luckey pitched Oculus to Zuckerberg, he didn't even show him their tech. He gave them a demo of VALVE'S VR Room, claiming it was theirs. Zuck literally thought he'd bought valve's VR team when he bought oculus.

GabeMoralesVR,
@GabeMoralesVR@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@shekinahcancook an actual photo of Zuck getting the VR pitch. The equipment he is using is Valve's, not Oculus', and the room he's in is literally called "The Valve Room." Wild, wild shit.

GabeMoralesVR,
@GabeMoralesVR@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@shekinahcancook Once Zuck realized after he had bought Oculus that he didn't have access to the very demo which sold him the tech, he tried to buy valve's VR team, but alan yates said fuck no and oculus/facebook stopped all cooperation with valve. THIS is why Oculus shifted from PC VR.

@fkamiah17 There were snipers at the university of texas the other day on the tower. Which, you know, considering the history of the university and sniper killing people from that tower, is fucking disgusting.

officiating in the playoffs is fascinating. A slap across the wrist is a foul; a folding chair across the chest is not. @nba

@cwgrody @nba plus there's also the history of refs fixing playoff games. An example that was cited in court was Houston vs Dallas 2005, when Tim Donoughy was instructed to intentionally call phantom fouls on Yao Ming.

Public service announcement: Wireless phone/tablet charging wastes much more energy than wired charging, and can in some cases overheat batteries causing longtime reduction of their lives. Also, these problems tend to get even worse if the device isn't absolutely centered on the charging coil, which means a wireless charger with multiple coils or otherwise designed where you can't even tell roughly if you're centered or not may be particularly problematic in these regards.

Uhhhh.... pretty sure the fact that we can extrapolate out when eclipses will occur is proof that science and math certainly can explain an eclipse.

Did you know Brazil had a Mac clone in the 80’s that was compatible with 68k Mac apps ? Of course it got smothered under pressure from US government (threatening to block other imports).

This is why today you still import Brazilian commodities but rarely tech. True for many countries of course.

If you don’t speak Portuguese you may want to turn on your translator to read this story by @augustocc

@santiago @augustocc the dirty secret was that any computer with a 68k in it could run mac software, often much better than an actual 68k mac. Both the Amiga and Atari ST made excellent 68k macs, especially the ST with its fast stock processor.

I wonder if anybody tried to use FXAA before doing display mapping BUT by still applying and reverting a curve ? 🤔

Aka:
1 - Switch from HDR to SDR
2 - Apply FXAA
3 - Switch back from SDR to HDR
4 - Apply regular post-process stuff

@froyok everything your account posts is great. Question about your engine: I see you focus a lot on the rendering side, what are your plans for handling level geometry and PVS? BSP, portals? Are you going to design an ECS?

@froyok I've been working my way through writing a UT-style engine for the Dreamcast, but all my domain knowledge is in the quake tree. Please keep posting especially when you start writing your portal system, I'd greatly appreciate it!
