they want you to lift 50 lbs... do they don't understand how heavy that is?

honestly if I knew the job market was going to be like this, I would've put more skill points into strength when I made my MMORPG character...
50 lbs is like, a lot.

It's funny.. When I was in high school I used to clip news paper stories and put them in a binder.

Now, I just screen shot articles from websites online and save the on a drive.

funny, funny.

holy, holy.. Starfield takes up 142GB of storage space for installation. That's a record for me. There was also this crappy Marvel game that barely reached 100GB, but wow.. is this the new norm? Some of my favorite games don't even get close to those numbers.

What a roller coaster ride. Now if DJT wins a 2 term, he'll use Truth Social as his main communication tool like he did Twitter in 2016. We won't know until November. That aside, this is a SPAC/meme company. Avoid.

woot! it's official, the robot landed on the moon!

@joule@mastodon.social avatar

robot selfies, on other planets is apparently a thing now. The lunar robot that's about to land on the moon is going to take a selfie while it's landing. Only humans would make this a priority..

Who knows, maybe aliens are making their robots take selfies too?

omg... Spring isn't supposed* to start until late March and it's already F-ing hot. The humidity is adding to it I think. It's not normal for it to be this hot and this wet..

In July/Aug it's going to be 50 degrees hotter, but I'm already complaining!

so, wow. I daresay it's not winter anymore. It's finally above 70 degrees in now. I think this has everything to do with the rain from california.

lol, this is a job that exists. It exists and there are state requirements regulating it! Just imagine, this became so much of a problem that a committee held meetings to discuss licensing requirements for it.

In the future (or now) they'll have Large Language Models trained on the Standford Data Set, but there will also be LLM's trained on the CCSN data set. You know, the budget option for the AI that had to learn from a community college's dataset and not an elite tier-1 university's dataset.

novice burrito tip: Don't stuff too much into the burrito or you won't be able to close it..

expert burrito tip: Stack two tortillas together to increase surface area so you can stuff more inside the burrito.

It’s so funny that so many people replied to me that “VR isn’t meant to be a monitor replacement” when the companies making VR are marketing it like this

Apple marketing material showing person using virtual monitors

@thomasfuchs folks who do forex trading have a minimum of 6 monitors in front of them. Window Media App for VR lets you place dozens of monitors in front of you. It's a win on so many levels, especially on power consumption.

@thomasfuchs the mixed realty portal is still working and hasn't gone away. It comes with a desktop feature which allows you to open up as many screens as your heart desires.

@thomasfuchs well... there are some alternative VR desktops available on Steam, but they're made by 3rd party studios.

"Steam VR" is still around though, and it functions as a launcher similar to Windows Reality. As of today 1/7/2024, Windows Reality is still functioning.

Also, we don't really need either of them. We can launch standalone programs/apps without Windows Reality/Steam VR. It's just nice to have, but it sucks that one of them will be depreciated soon.
