Savaran,

Well it’s a valid concern. So I should fucking hope so.

Savaran,

I have “unlimited” with the handbook specifically saying we’re to take at least four weeks a year, and it’s the first time in my career I’ve actually been getting time off because of it. Everywhere non unlimited it was never actually approved and I’d get a lousy check every year for it. You know what’s way better than money? Time off.

If you and your coworkers aren’t using your benefit perhaps you all should discuss it and work out reasonable minimums you all expect to take and then take it. And don’t judge your coworkers for taking any of it.

Savaran,

Every price has gone up. Salaries haven’t. So… yeah.

Savaran,

For Cyberpunk I’ve played both because I play to enjoy the performances, and they’re both different performances. Now when replaying I always do female V because her performance is bloody incredible (not in any way saying the performance of Gavin Drea was bad mind you! But Cherami Leigh knocked it so far out of the park that I consider that personally the “canon” performance)

The character in the game doesn’t have to have anything to do with me at all. Just like a main character in a movie or a book doesn’t have to look or be anything like me for me to enjoy it. I’m looking for interesting stories not my auto-biography

Savaran,

I mean, you do understand that this money isn’t just vanishing right? It’s being spent on people, manufacturing, materials. It doesn’t just vanish into nothing.

Savaran,

When places talk about how they’ll be “the next Silicon Valley” this is one of the reasons none of them have actually managed it. In CA people in many cases can take a good idea that their employer doesn’t want and do something with it themselves. In most other places it will get so tied up in non competes that it’s not worth the effort to even try.

And it’s not just tech, here in Colorado we recently had a restaurant try and shut down another restaurant simply because the newer place’s chef had worked at the older place. They settled but it’s so entirely ridiculous that it could have even started court proceedings in the first place.

Savaran,

If a business wants a particular outfit to be worn then they should provide the uniforms in their dollar.

Savaran,

I mean in that particular example it’s specifically a limit that was put on our democracy. Which is to say, make sure your state joins the national popular vote compact if they haven’t already:

"If you don't vote <insert democrat> democracy will end" (harpers.org)

This article does a great job of explaining people’s frustration with having to vote for Biden again. It’s long, so here are some quotes. They’re totally cherry-picked, I’d recommend reading the whole thing (especially if you think the problem started with Biden, and that Clinton and Obama were ever good choices)....

Savaran,

Heck, right now, in this same Lemmy: lemmy.world/post/14467149

All about how Biden’s administration is expanding the Federal TItle IX protections:

The Biden administration on Friday will announce changes to Title IX, expanding protections for LGBTQ+ and pregnant students while overhauling controversial Trump-era guidance around how schools handled sexual assault cases.

And here people are acting like they do nothing.

Did we magically become a far left utopia? Of course fucking not. But Biden has been far more effective and progressive than I ever expected of him having grown up watching him. Does everything take far longer than it should? Yep, welcome to politics where one side is trying to tear down everything (quite literally) as it’s being built. Are things as progressive as I’d like? No of course not, but they’re frequently more progressive than I expected. That’s the unfortunate truth of how things get done.

And for all the people who are basically saying “I voted once and all my dreams failed to come true”, welcome to your civic duty. Vote the best way you can every election, especially local ones, and realize you’re trying to guide things through your entire lifetime not just 4 years and done.

Savaran,

Machine learning tool used by people too lazy to do their actual job accuses everyone else of using machine learning tools.

Savaran,

Sounds like a great reason to re-nationalize the public utility companies.

Savaran,

Because why should self proclaimed billionaires face consequences for their actions and statements. /sigh

UK Defense Ministry: Russia might lose at least 10% of its refinery capacity after drone attacks (kyivindependent.com)

Drone attacks on Russia's oil refineries are likely to have disrupted at least 10% of the country's refinery capacity, the U.K. Defense Ministry said in its latest report. In the past weeks, Ukrainian forces have launched a series of drone strikes aimed at damaging Russia's oil industry.

Savaran,

What? The automatic spam generation tool is full of spam? Say it ain’t so

Savaran,

Cool, maybe they’ll make a Marathon game then 😂

Savaran,

“I got mine, the rest can fuck off” says yet another famous asshole

Savaran,

Fuck that. Give me money, I can handle my own emotional business in my own time if I’m not stressed about bills.

Savaran,

I would rather they fund NASA to the fullest, and nationalize SpaceX under them.

Savaran,

The only movie I’ve seen in theaters in the past couple of years has been Dune 2. The only movie I plan to see in theaters in the future is Dune 3 if/when it gets made.

Otherwise I’m not sure there’s any movies on anyone’s docket that won’t be far more fun watching from my couch.

Savaran,

Approach programming with the same seriousness that you’d expect a programmer to approach your field with. You say yourself you just want it to “do the thing, conventions be damned”.

Well how would you feel if someone entered your lab or whatever and treated the tools of your trade that way?

Savaran,

Administrations matter. Look even if your worried about Biden’s age, if something happens to him would you rather have his administration or Trumps? Cause the answer is very clear for me at least.

Presidents do not fill the office in isolation.

Katie Porter's star dims in failed US Senate bid, leaving the Californian facing an uncertain future (apnews.com)

U.S. Rep. Katie Porter became a social media celebrity by brandishing a white board at congressional hearings to dissect CEOs and break down complex figures into assaults on corporate greed, a signature image that propelled the Democrat’s U.S. Senate candidacy in California....

Savaran,

As I tell my kids. There’s no reason to like the game, and spend your entire lives doing what you can to change it for the better, but while you’re doing that, and to change the game, you’re going to have to play it as best you can.

We’re not going to change to a utopia overnight, it has to be one little change at a time and people have to work to get to the place to make those changes first.

Savaran,

Right? It’s not the bailout that upsets me, it’s how they did it and the fact that all the bankers executives weren’t jailed and prevented from working in financial markets again indefinitely.
