There's a temptation to make inappropriate internet jokes etc. Though no one watching even called the police, from the safety of their own home. They didn't even have to stick their own neck out or get involved, they probably had a phone sitting next to them.


Not having seen the video, it's hard to speculate as to whether the viewers A) knew it was not consensual and B) knew the girl was underaged.

We're in the process of transitioning my current company from waterfall to agile, and as a result bringing in people who have been working from home back to the office. Collocation with the business is important in agile software development, and the advantages it offers in both team speed and making the software that actually fulfills the needs of the end user are too compelling to ignore. We've made more progress in the last three months under agile than we did in all of last year. And the stuff we built last year turned out not to be useable by the business.

You truly do miss so much working remotely, despite the loss of personal efficiency.

Microsoft probably has 250 lawyers working feverishly right now to find a way to crush Vulkan, or neuter it to the point of being useless before any more devs drop DX12 support.


Purchase then deprecate, claiming to have "incorporated" the technology in to DirectX.

CIG definitely made the right move, I'm sure more developers will follow suit.

Anything that incrementally loosens microsofts death grip on pc gaming is a good thing.


Oh man, Star Citizen is gonna be such a SWEET game! I can't wait for 2025!

For the record, that NASA bill also cuts $500 million from the NASA budget.

The Mars detail seems to gloss over that cut.

We're gonna go to Mars, and Mars is gonna pay for it!

The reason devs use Steam is because they can increase sales by more than 30% to cover the 30% cut Steam takes.

Hosting themselves also carries bandwidth and hosting costs, not sure what % of sales that is, but it's probably something 5-10% range.

Happiness is on the wane in the US, UN global report finds.

Happiness can be hard when your 100 pound wife is a nympho and all she wants all the time is s3x, s3x, s3x. I hope others have it better.

So senior citizens and vets who need meals-on-wheels can go fuck themselves but the elites still get to go to space for no reason.

Canceling Meals on Wheels, and instead making Meals on Rockets?

Or maybe Meals in Spaaaaaaaace!

I'm glad he's investing in science. Is this an increase in funding? Meals-on-wheels should be a priority but there are better things to cut.

It's less "do moar saience!" and more "stop investigating that fake global warming shit and invent the Enterprise already!"

Speaking of games stuck in development hell, Josh Parnell dropped a few new screenshots of Limit Theory yesterday.
I thought he kind of gave up on that development.

He says he's still committed to it. Apparently he built the engine in such a way that it wasn't optimized for what he wanted to be, so he's rewriting the core to be more efficient. Sounds like he's making good progress, but the game isn't even in alpha yet. Probably see alpha at the end of the year. He's been showing proof of concepts at a couple of game shows this year. Color me cautiously optimistic, but it's an extremely ambitious game for a single dev to take on.

Forensic examination of the computer indicated that the device had been used to visit known child exploitation sites and to download thousands of files with the same hash values as known child pornography files.

The files themselves, however, were not present on the computer. They are assumed to be stored on the external encrypted hard drives.

Authorities in Delaware investigating the case already had a sense of the contents of the drives because, according to court documents, the defendant's sister had told police investigators "that Doe had shown her hundreds of images of child pornography on the encrypted external hard drives."

It's not like they have nothing. Is the general position that the cops should just give up in cases like this and not bother prosecuting?

First, the DA should prosecute on what he's got and not compel the accused to provide additional evidence against his will.

Second, the gun analogy isn't really applicable here. A better analogy might be if he had a stash of kiddie pr0n mags and he hid them. The sister knew they existed, but the man couldn't remember where he'd hidden them. Could he be compelled to give up their location? Nope.

Look, if this guy is guilty, lock him up. Just don't violate the constitution to do it, because that's a slippery slope, and especially in this day and age we need to aggressively defend that.

"game players" and tablets are not allowed? wtf? why?

there's a lot of flights that are so ignorant that they don't even allow cellphones on board, even if they're set in airplane mode... so now all we can bring are books?
You'll be able to bring books until a terrorist uses one to beat a pilot into submission then they'll be banned.

That pilot looked a little bit like a young Bill Paxton. Damn that looked like a rough landing. Still, was probably easier than landing this helo on the back of a tiny frigate in thirty foot seas.

An isolated pre-agrarian tribe that isn't subjected to pollution, junk food, etc and has a heavily cardio based lifestyle and a mostly plant based diet is healthier than most other people? Gee, who would thunk it?
Wry

Similar results from the 30 year longitudinal study of the Ornish and Esselstyn diets, which also combine a mostly vegan diet with exercise.
