Thank you for the information. I guess it should be no surprise they have failed to make any critical decisions since 31 Jan 2020. Both because it is what the UK has been doing concerning Brexit for literally years and getting anything productive done in 2020 is pretty close to impossible. And yes, I am aware of the issues around the Good Friday Agreement, which is part of the reason I was surprised when you said NI wasn't part of the UK anymore. It sounds like if they have managed to make any progress in solving the difficult problem of the NI borders they have failed to notify anyone outside the process. Somehow I am not optimistic they are holding back on good news. As far as I can tell, Northern Ireland is pretty much the only place in the "West" where politics are more contentious than those in the US -- which is saying something...

In the end it's complicated EU legal stuff and I do not claim that I understand most of it. The troubles were never really fixed, only delayed. And worse, with Brexit, Northern Ireland can choose to be outside of the EU (that means military protected border right through the country think east/west germany) or inside the EU (that means EU sea-border, patrolled, with UK but soft border to Ireland) and I wonder if the UK even gives that choice to Northern Ireland, if you ask me there should be a referendum because hot damn if that isn't an important question to ask I don't know what is. This also means that the Brexit won't be a thing for Northern Ireland. It would still have to live under EU law and regulations..... heh. I wonder which mess the UK chooses.

The AMD naming scheme for CPU's and GPU's frankly sucks Why the FRACK is there an X in both, why the hell are both at 5000/6000 even though it's the same generation (And for GPUs it's not the same generation) ? Do they want to intentionally confuse people? Blkegh!

Technically Northern Ireland isn't part of the UK anymore once the Brexit finalizes.. just saying
Is that settled? I was under the impression it was one of the major "issues" to be dealt with in negotiations and everything I read about it indicated everyone was expecting it to be a very difficult problem...
What happens to Northern Ireland on 31 December, deal or no deal?
Hmm. How was it decided whether Northern Ireland would remain in the UK or the EU? Was there another vote in NI after the Brexit vote? And are they now going for independent country status or rejoining Ireland? I did some Googling and couldn't find anything concrete...

So using the word "Thief" is somehow not modern enough?

Also, that ain't piracy.

And technically it also is stupidity.. just today delivery left a 600€ valued package outside... my BALCONY DOOR and only reason I noticed was because Amazon sent me a pic of it, I mean that's fine, ain't a neighborhood here where that is a thing right now.. but still.. I can't wait till drones deliver my shit.

Love this
"Instead of Achievements for new games on Ubisoft Connect ... we have expanded the Challenges, which provide XP and other rewards in Ubisoft Connect. We know that this is a big change for a lot of you, and we appreciate your understanding in the matter."

yet..

The reaction to the news has almost universally been not understanding...

While Foolbook has it's bakesale funded moderators ineffectually doing a keystone cops routine, it is still pouring millions into research into identifying people gullible or in the slightest way likely to respond to hate based fringe wacko right wing white nationalist conspiracy theories, finding ways to help them find each other and funneling as much as possible of that info garbage to them.

Speech without liability is chaos.

230 is right up there with Citizens United in terms of lethality to democracy.

Socially irresponsible media needs to go.

I fully agree to the last part, but it is at the execution where you can drift even further into fringe right nationalism. Socially responsible can mean many things to many people, and who guarantees the right people sit at the controls?

The google maps link is just meh, but another link on there is quite shocking I mean I am on the internet, I know BTS (k-pop fans) are cancer to the extreme, but holy hell that is one story I think would drive me over the edge to radicalism if it happened to me. A classic example on how Twitter doesn't give 2 fucks if a group of retards starts molesting you online. Like less than a fuck even, Twitter does NOTHING to help you there. NOTHING. A huge company that flags trumpinis tweets automatically can't protect you from online harassment from organized k-pop "fans" and you need to write your OWN BOT to stop the flood?

Yeah, that checks out. Whatever I thought of Twitter before, it's even less now.

And let that sink in. A single german professional coder who can code bots and understood the twitter api had a tough time to get a handle on that, but managed it BARELY and still bombarded by dozens of "this dude stole my account" scams to the point where his twitter handle is completely unusable for communication (because everyone he replies to is bombarded too) this is disgusting.

Loot boxes are a scourge. My grandkids are forbidden to buy loot boxes. I ioenly get the money for them and buy atuff from ebay, amazon etc for when they stop and show them what loot box money will get them outside the game. It was hard at first but they now appreciate how much of a rip off it is.

That is applaudable parenting.. massive kudos to you!

This has always been my problem with loot boxes. It's not just the old adage about fools and their money - they knowingly prey on people who can't know right from wrong, be it children or people with addictions.

And it's not just publishers doing it either... lots of streamers also are part of the problem (Genshin Impact comes to mind)

For 40€ no less... that said, the developer isn't exactly known for anything else... also I would be curious how working from home makes it so you have 2 different mouse acceleration profiles, one for moving and 1 for aiming, and both can't be configured... that is a design flaw, not a coding flaw.

I kind of struggle with it. They say the guy wasn't in a creative role. And the character looks like generic Twitch gamer girl. She's into cats and doodling! She has stupid glasses!

I think there needs to be a hard connection between the person that designed this and her, but even if, what damages should she get?

Do you know if your likeness is considered your personal intellectual property?

Your likeness is, but not any artistic interpretation of it (in the EU) - but exceptions exists, not for her in this instance though. If it goes through 3 layers (photo -> concept -> model/textures) then it's a new original ART and not a reproduction of her likeness... the question muddles with facial capture and such though...

So, you think your likeness is open to be used by anyone who cares to? Even if her accusations are accurate, I need to know more before I could agree she has been "damaged" by Riot...

I mean this story is the dumbest thing I read this month, and I include recent Trump tweets in that comparison.

She doesn't look like a stylized Fortnite cartoon character so there is nothing to even talk about, well at least for my perception of reality.

And yes, I mean this style is obviously stylized, to me it looks like "every Fortnite character ever" even if we talk about LoL here, where it's even more absurd.... given you don't even play the characters, you just control them from top down.

And as a 3d-artist this is more fundamentally stupid to me. If she had a case how would you propose I vet my concept artists? Should I look at their phones at work to make sure they don't get inspired by their ex girlfriends?

Never have so many ignorant of copyright law been so pissy and clueless, from fast buck Twitch with virtually no lawyers with any copyright background, to Twitch producers who as a whole seem to be the most copyright ignorant group of people on the planet.

Actual quotes from the article

other streamer playing FFXIV are getting muted and risking potential DMCA strikes, not because of the actual music used in-game, but because of a YouTube cover artist.
who does not own the copyright to the song AT ALL

Twitch’s systems are going after sounds
Even for games with broadcast license being granted

Other streamers have received strikes for clips they’ve already deleted
with more than 2 weeks delay

Twitch emailed him notice of a copyright strike against his channel on November 2. He has no idea what exactly was in the offending clip, because Twitch did not tell him

I mean, there is being ignorant of copyright law, and then there is Twitch being a total dickwad about it. If you want to destroy a platform, this is how you destroy a platform. I know from a few of actual content producers (DM sessions, roleplays, OG content etc.) that use music they got licensed and permission to use and STILL got strikes and auto-mutes for...

Twitch is done.

There are also plenty of records where PAID FOR licensed songs, allowed to be PLAYED AT TWITCH, got DMCAd and auto-muted. WTF?
