Another benefit to this is that the USB port goes into a restricted mode that only allows for charging, and you can still use your cameras to record while it’s in this mode.

Even those who do well in testing of wrote knowledge can perform poorly in practical exercises. That’s why medical doctors have to train and qualify through several years of supervised residency before being allowed to practice even basic medicine.

GPT-4 can’t do even that.

Lol, bullshit. 94%/88% on RT.

The show is awesome, and has already been greenlit for S02. It would have been so easy to fuck this show up, but they knocked it out of the park. As an avid player of the games, I loved it! This reviewer doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

On the Prime Fallout site, they have a bunch of extras and bonus content that explains a lot of the background stuff like that. It’s kind of neat. You should check it out.

Have you finished the series? Because I don’t think I agree with this at all.

Not one bit.

Edit: to explain further would contain massive spoilers.

@gregorum@lemm.ee avatar

No it isn’t. The show is happening in 2296, 11 years after FO4 (2285). FNV takes place in 2281.

And you can’t think of them building back up (even one major chapter), with the help of other Brotherhood chapters, in the fifteen years afterwards?

That’s a failure of your imagination, buddy, not a shortcoming of the show.

gregorum ,
@gregorum@lemm.ee avatar

You have no idea what happened in the 15 years between FNV and the show, or the 11 since FO4.

All I’m hearing is that you couldn’t have imagined it, therefore everyone else is wrong— and that just makes you look like you have a very limited imagination, not that everyone else is wrong for coming up with a better story that you could have.

You’re very welcome not to like it, but you still haven’t laid out any solid evidence for your claims other than speculation.

What product? I’m not clicking a YouTube link just to find out the name of the product being reviewed.

Personally, I’ve found it pretty great. I’ve watched the whole thing and am going in again for another binge. The ending is great. Knowing that it’s already been greenlit for season 2 gives me a lot of hope.

It would have been really easy to fuck this show up, but they really managed to pull it off!

gregorum ,
@gregorum@lemm.ee avatar

It gives a lot of background for those unfamiliar to the lore. I’m pretty sure newcomers will also like it. It’s a lot of fun, like the games!

They do a tiny bit to explain ghouls, but not a lot. It’s mostly implied that they’re the result of nuclear radiation. It’s not that complicated, really.

But some other stuff really could use more backstory, that’s true.

how iGPUs and dGPUs work in linux is something i find very confusing. would some kind soul please demystify this for me? how does this driver work for Radeon chipsets/dGPUs, and how does that affect iGPUs for systems with them?

gregorum ,
@gregorum@lemm.ee avatar

no, i understand all of that, of course.

what i'm referring to is the whole hybrid mode/passthrough situation where dGPUs and iGPUs somehow depend on each other and dGPUs can't really be run descretely.

OS X (now macOS) and iOS have had app-level sandboxing for the last 14 years, at least since 10.7 Lion/iOS 5.

Nowadays, Apple has even gone to some outrageous efforts to make the OS itself nearly inaccessible to edit without jumping through a bunch of hoops (which, for power users, are simply inconvenient), however there are a few security upshots to this, including keeping novice users from hosing their system by accident.

Edit: this would, of course, apply to any macOS derivative such as iOS, iPadOS, etc.

I’m one of those old assholes who just remembers the stories as they happened. If it tells about those, it should be a fun journey. Those guys have been through a lot fighting for the ability to torrent!

No ya don’t, lol. Internet was slow af, and there were no smartphones! Shit sucked! Tech is way better now, although it seems we’re constantly on the brink of wwiii. And everything is impossibly expensive. But we have electric cars and we’re maaaybe goi g to mars?

The future is t what I thought it would be.

Great story. It’s on GOG. Beyond a Steel Sky is the sequel, released a few years ago. Kinda sad, but really great, too. Made by the creators of the original from the 90s, and has an in-game commentary track!

One of the most ridiculous false pretenses Trump tries to maintain is that he can only pay with a single, $454M bond, and since he can’t get one that large, he should, obviously, just be forgiven the amount entirely and let off the hook.

What he doesn’t want anyone to know is that, obviously, he could just get several smaller bonds for, say, $50M or $75M or $100M until it added up to the $454M or however much he needs to post for the appeal. In fact, he even tried to offer a $100 bond before, but used it instead in the E Jean Carrol appeal.

They still loaned him a fuck ton of money that they sure won’t ever see again. So I don’t know how they dodged a bullet.

That was so fast, you make me rub my temples in pain, my guy.

Good

People are born into environments they have no control over

Nobody is born a Nazi. That is a choice someone makes. And it’s a choice that has consequences.

If a person is sitting peacefully

Being a Nazi isn’t “peaceful.” There is no “peaceful” state of being a Nazi. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain of the United Kingdom taught the world that 1936 when he tried to leave Nazi Germany sitting peacefully alone.

gtfo with you Nazi apologism

The difference between us is, I want Nazis to renounce their Nazi-ism. You don’t.

you've made another mistake: assuming you can read my mind. you can't, of course. and, in making that assumption, not only were you wrong, you came to the wrong conclusion-- it'd be thrilled if Nazis renounced their beliefs.

However, in the meantime, neither they nor their beliefs should be tolerated, and you haven't made any argument that compels me to believe otherwise.

and attacking me personally rather than my argument is a pretty weak ad hominem fallacy, as i've demonstrated. so is using the straw man argument about "changing their beliefs" rather than what we were discussing: tolerating them.

I don’t believe you’ll always be this way. I believe you can change

i suggest you stick with the facts rather than beliefs and logical fallacies. they make for a better argument.

gtfo with your nazi apologism

Your failure to provide a reliable source for your claims is not my problem.

If you cannot provide a reliable source of your claims, your claim will be dismissed.
