Alec Holowka appears to have committed suicide.

Ah yes. Twatter now has another confirmed kill.
Twatter: the modern day witch hunt.
Due process be damned.

Yup. Vigilante justice at its worse.

it can barely run Star Citizen.

Ackchyually Star Citizen runs at 4K65 with all the settings maxed out. It's not an optimized game.

I think i wanna jack into my 65" tv for this @ 4k, problem is finding a long HDMI cable that actually works at 60fps 4k

Instead of a lengthy and costly HDMI cable, how about an NVIDIA Shield or a Steam Link (should be plenty available outside of Steam)? The Shield should be able to use your computer's full power to stream high-quality 4K60 to your 65" without any quality degradation.

I feel like if you ever have a reason to mention Trello to the end user, your development strategy is hopelessly wrecked.

And a total disaster if you have to remove dates from said Trello.

Yeah, a bunch of us said their roadmap was way too aggressive.
No need to announce a time frame. Just plod away and release features when they're done.


You mean something like this?

Looks delish. I'll need to give that sub a try! Thanks for the reco.

"Burns conceded that the long-term effects of vaping are not known."

About Burns' comment, I have to call BS on that. There's clear evidence that CBD oil popular among vapist can cause liver damage. It's not less harmful than smoking causing lung damage, it's the same. Worse, vaping lacks the strict regulation tobacco has. Kids and young adults in regions of the country can obtain these products and even more so online where rules appear to be non-existent between websites.

"Don't vape. Don't use Juul"

"DON'T DO IT." Young person's response, "I'm doing it." They're playing into psychology of young adults not wanting to listen to adults tell them what to do.

The EU competition enforcer in April charged the six companies with preventing EU consumers from shopping around for the best video game deals within the 28-country bloc.

It said the companies agreed to use geo-blocking activation keys to prevent consumers in one EU country from buying cheaper versions of a game in another EU country.

You keep using "regional pricing" EU. I do not think it means what you think it means.

How many false accusations should you consider as immoral to justify the 92% that is true? If your answer is zero then, you sir, are correct. A single false allegation is WRONG. There's no such thing as "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." When one false accusation can destroy a person's life and reputation, and potentially lead to suicide, there's no room for false allegations.
Another thing that can lead to suicide is rape. It might sound nice to say "innocent until proven guilty" but that's exactly why the majority of sexual assaults are not even reported. You're concerned about the occasional man who might be wrongly accused but don't seem to care about the majority of actual victims who have to live with the trauma, while the offender probably goes on to abuse others too.

Re: "You're concerned about the occasional man who might be wrongly accused but don't seem to care about the majority of actual victims who have to live with the trauma." Never go full strawman.

On the one hand, sexual assault can result in a lifetime of trauma. The most recent This American Life episode dealt with this.

On the other hand, false accusations can also be devastating. Here's the story of a Navy SEAL who was falsely accused and convicted.

That is some haunting shit, thanks for sharing it. Should give anyone pause before they rush to judgment on either side in the future.

Precisely. From the beginning, I was adamant about us not joining the online mob against the guy. He's probably getting eviscerated; no doubt his former employee condemned him by firing him as if to state his guilt is all but assured. All of this based on what Zoe wrote on her iPhone on 8/26, more than a month after the incident happened, according to her bias, and with no real evidence presented (e.g. "here's a photo of the bruises I suffered from", or "here's a note from my doctor about the event" or "here's a copy of the police report I filed with private information redacted.")

It may be a point worth mentioning that the statistics being thrown around are for rape/sexual assault accusations that were tried in court. I don't see there being any conceivable way of coming up with any percentage for the types of cases that are brought to light on social media - there's virtually no burden of proof whatsoever in the court of public opinion.

Exactly. "He did it!" "Get him!" is the axiom of the modern social media mob.

I think the FBI puts the false allegation rate at 8%. I wonder how they get to that number though: rape convictions vs false accusal convictions? Regardless, out of the 80,000 reported rapes in the USA, 8% is thousands of false accusations.

Regardless, out of the 80,000 reported rapes in the USA, 92% is tens of thousands of verified accusations.

As for the FBI's number:
That number has not been used since 1997 and the estimate was criticised by academic Bruce Gross as almost meaningless as many jurisdictions from which FBI collects data use different definition of "unfounded", which, he wrote, includes cases where the victim did not physically fight off the suspect or the suspect did not use a weapon, and cases where the victim had a prior relationship to the suspect.
