Sin's is a game my friends and I always come back to. Such a dynamic rts with so many ways to win.

The expansions are fairly priced and also one person having an expansion is enough to host an expansion game for everyone who has any version installed.

Thankfully, no one is forcing you to.

Apparently that wasn't one of his MBOs, so we can infer the board is a bunch of dumbasses.

I use the Kishi and combined with the Steam Link app I'm hard pressed to understand why my friends all keep buying Steam Decks.

Weston is by file size, about equal to xserver. But really there is more utility in Weston than xserver.

Xorg needs several of it's extensions to function at the same level as Weston+Wayland. At minimum you'd need xorg server, proto, lib, and driver... Maybe a few other things I'm forgetting.

Now we just need half-width extrusions on the outer wall!

Just an offhand idea. If you look at the print in the thumbnail, you can see that while this clever brick-interleaving has eliminated the straight lines along the xy plane, the Z axis still has straight lines. Eliminating that so you have a "brick-interleaving" in all axis seems the most optimal.

It was the bad old days of sysadmin, where literally every critical service ran on an iron box in the basement.

I was on my first oncall rotation. Got my first call from helpdesk, exchange was down, it's 3AM, and the oncall backup and Exchange SMEs weren't responding to pages.

Now I knew Exchange well enough, but I was new to this role and this architecture. I knew the system was clustered, so I quickly pulled the documentation and logged into the cluster manager.

I reviewed the docs several times, we had Exchange server 1 named something thoughtful like exh-001 and server 2 named exh-002 or something.

Well, I'd reviewed the docs and helpdesk and stakeholders were desperate to move forward, so I initiated a failover from clustered mode with 001 as the primary, instead to unclustered mode pointing directly to server 10.x.x.xx2

What's that you ask? Why did I suddenly switch to the IP address rather than the DNS name? Well that's how the servers were registered in the cluster manager. Nothing to worry about.

Well... Anyone want to guess which DNS name 10.x.x.xx2 was registered to?

Yeah. Not exh-002. For some crazy legacy reason the DNS names had been remapped in the distant past.

So anyway that's how I made a 15 minute outage into a 5 hour one.

On the plus side, I learned a lot and didn't get fired.

Tbf, Russia has been sourcing ammunition from North Korea.

There is a team, not a sole dev.

I'm not saying everything is roses and rainbows, but this is FUD messaging being spread openly by the mbin dev team.

Yeah honestly no idea regarding moderation. But the codebase is maintained by a team.

Why the recent Mozilla news isn't actually a big deal

Everyone here has been overreacting about the Mozilla layoffs, but they only laid off poeple working on the metaverse, ai, and their VPN and stuff. They’re actually refocusing on Firefox. People have been freaking out about them working on ai now, too, but theyve been doing ai for a while (Mozilla common voice...

But what if they don't need that many people working on Firefox? What if AI, VR, and Network programmers are fundamentally different in skills from a web browser programmer, and don't want to change their career trajectory?

What if, by not firing these people, Mozilla folds in 3 years and everyone ends up without a job?

Not every project makes 2x the money with 2x the people. It's the "Why can't 9 Mom's give birth in 1 month" problem. Hell most projects will slow down significantly with an influx like that.

Look, layoffs suck, but it's quid-pro-quo. Employees can leave at any time too. If a company isn't abusive or arbitrary with their layoff decisions, has decent layoff benefits, and doesn't refuse to give job recommendations, it's hard for me to hold it against the employer.

I mean, I get the disenfranchisement. It hurts.

But these people either don't understand the election system, or don't care about the insane damage a shift to the far right at multiple levels the US is facing of we don't stand up to MAGA again in the general election at every level.

I'll firmly support anyone running on a democratic-socialist platform in the primaries, but pretending they don't need a "D" next to their name in the general election is just stupid.

Until we fix how voting works in the US, this is the reality.

Didn't Solid get sketchy too? I remember feeling obligated to migrate to Material Files.

That's the neat part of the speed of light. It's the speed of light for every reference frame, no matter who is looking at you or from where.

Kata1yst,

To actually reach the speed of light you'd be massless, so the only damage, would be from momentum transfer, at which point your particles would be reflected or absorbed like light.

But that aside, mostly I was referring to your statement:

'Speed of Light' compared to what?

Which is really not a concern. It's the speed of light for everyone with respect to everything, or it isn't the speed of light. Like, two beams of light going in opposite directions don't see the other light beam going at 2x the speed of light, just at the speed of light with lots of time dialation.

Honestly, I bought my kid a used Chromebook. No regrets. Lots of benefits.

This is kind of like saying grass gets wet when it rains.

Their products are getting purchased much faster, both for use and for stockpile. Of course it's profitable?

The base ruleset (SRD) only. Everything else is OGL, which has proven to be as open as Wizards Hasbro wants to make it.

No argument here. I'm a PF2e player since beta and won't touch HasWizards products with a 10 foot disintegrate.
