It definitely seems like she must be one of the most powerful beings in the MCU.

I'd say so. She almost single-handedly took out Thanos in Endgame. Legion would probably be the only other Marvel character that may be able to match her. I don't think his TV show is considered part of the MCU, though.

I use to play this much more than it really deserved. The short single player mode is certainly worth a play-through.

It might be time to log back into my account and dominate the n00bs with my superior equipment.

Big fail for California -- picking a NY-style deli sandwich.

I would have gone for the lamb French dip from Philippe. They invented the thing.

4K and ray tracing without DLSS isn't feasible in Cyberpunk on any current generation card. Maybe in the future. For now, I'll deal with the slightly softer image to get the nice lighting and reflections.

Since you asked

Of the recent Marvel stuff, I'd rate Captain Marvel and GotG 2 as the worst. Both were fairly boring with major pacing issues. It's subjective, but the humor in GotG2 didn't work for me, and I thought GotG 2's message of it's okay to be an abusive, murdering a-hole, as long as you don't actually kill children was pretty terrible. Captain Marvel was ham-fisted and suffered from a lead that was completely uninteresting to watch. For direct comparison, I found WW84's "learning to fly" scene much more effective than the one in Captain Marvel.

Then there's another tier of films in the genre that are just disasters, like the last Fantastic Four movie.

I seem to be in the minority of people that enjoyed WW84. No, it wasn't the best superhero movie I've ever seen, but it was far from the worst. Maybe it helped that I was in the mood for something a bit different than the normal Marvel punch-fest when I watched it, so I appreciated the somewhat liesurely pace of the movie. I thought it gave the movie and characters some time to breath. I also wonder if something was lost in translation to watching it at home. I've got a nice big screen projector setup at home. For example, I heard some people complaining about the firework scene going on too long, but I enjoyed the spectacle watching it on the big screen.

The downside of having a big screen is that the CGI character looked awful at the end of Mandalorian, which kinda ruined the season finale for me.

I'm about 2 hours in and I haven't noticed a single dildo for looting yet, so this seems to be a YMMV situation. I had to stop playing once I hit level 2. I saw the huge skill tree and realized I didn't have time for another game to take over my life right now.

It is not a review.

Whoops. You are correct. From reading the Youtube comments sounds like it got delisted for running afoul of Youtube policies around NSFW content. I still think people who think Youtube is somehow in cahoots with CPR to censor critical videos are cuckoo.

I don't know what you're talking about. His 2 videos are the first 2 search results I get on both Youtube and Google Video search. Sounds like someone is just looking for more views by posting conspiracies.

so you'd have to get inside the corporate firewall prior to any attack against our Solarwinds installation.

This is a more sophisticated attack than that. The trojan itself is part of an "official" software update, so anyone who's updated SolarWinds since March is affected, and it's using a "phone home" method of instruction delivery, so If the SolarWinds instance can hit the internet outbound then it's vulnerable.

This SolarWinds hack is huge. Someone (likely GRU) has owned a bunch of companies running SolarWinds for the past 6 months, which is going to include a bunch of goverment and financial institutions.

And still no fixes for the constant CTD, double images, memory leaks, stuttering, and poor optimization in VR. I think it's time for a refund.

I've been using a Nostromo keypad for many, many years. It has it's own key remapping app, so games that don't have it built-in aren't a problem. The only downside is having to memorize the shifted keys if you need more than the 18 primary keys.

some 227,000 years ago. These beds were made from bundles of grass placed atop a layer of ash. In addition to providing comfort and a clean insulating surface, this setup kept the bugs away

Stuff like this reminds me that even though our recorded history only goes back a couple thousand years, modern humans have been around for a very, very long time.

My company has many employees on visas, and I have direct knowledge that it doesn't save us any money. The talent pool is pretty tight in my industry, and someone on a visa is frequently the best applicant for the position. They are hired on the exact same pay scale as non-visa holders, but with the added headaches of having to navigate the visa rules.

Where we're saving money on personel now is by moving all hiring abroad to Canada and EU. The labor prices are much cheaper. Pretty much everyone speaks English, and we don't have to deal with ever-changing visa rules. CoVid has accelerated this since we're now all distributed by default anyways.

And that's why he got elected. The majority of Americans are comfortable with the mild corruption we're used to - where it's subtle and hidden from obvious view. You may have noticed that the actual liberal candidates got trounced in the primaries.

I will say one thing that the morbidly obese Orange spray painted baboon did do that I admired was he stuffed every office he could with people from his party.
Cause that worked out so well for him?
