Minecraft Streamer

The ugly truth that most irresponsible social media always want to avoid discussing is that most followers are children while most streamers are adults. Those platforms are designed to nurture and enable the Eddy Haskells and child molesters of the world.

Once again some clueless young hipster journalist on the make, skewers history to advance a click bait title.

Creative Labs and many others were selling small portable MP3 players years before this so called journalist claims wrongly that Apple invented the idea. Jobs never invented anything, he was a slick salesman that was adept at copying existing things and palming them off as inventions. Apple I and II see PET Commodore, Mac see Xerox PARC, Ipod see Creative Labs mp3 player, etc.

Steam deck, another attempted nail in the coffin of PC gaming. Valve pushing game publishers to dumb down all PC games to console knuckle dragging mouth breathing minimalism. Let's just hope it goes the way of Steam Machines, and Steam Controller.

US legal system has devolved to the point that citizens are treated like the peon subjects of the royalty of judges and lawyers. Do we allow Judges and lawyers to screen us before we vote. Do they scrutinize our behavior while voting and disqualify us if we listen to music while voting.

If you have ever been through the jury selection process you know what a joke it is. Ever been robbed or know someone who has, well the US system allows lawyers to deem you unfit to sit in judgement in a trial involving robbery. It's like disqualifying anyone who has first hand knowledge of the matter at hand. It supposed to be everyone's right and not some privilege handed out on the whims of lawyers and Judges. It is supposed to be the luck of the draw, not some high paid legal team sifting through people till they find ones they like and working over time to disqualify those they don't.

How dare anyone mod "Our" games. Paid DLC is the "only" add on we will tolerate.
Also we just love taking games that would run fine on a potato and de-optimizing them.

The US, epicenter or socially irresponsible media subverting civilization for profit, once again lags behind the rest of the world (China, Russia, and now Great Britain) in recognizing this blight, and regulating it as it should have been all along. The world ran just fine with out giving anonymous global mega phones to every dimwit and miscreant on the planet, now it's falling apart. Supply chain issues look no further than the simple break down of civilization, thanks to the Idiocracy that irresponsible social media nurtures.

Anyone half a brain cell can see that all of socially irresponsible media craft their AI to promote whatever engages eyeballs. The fact that lynch mobs, insurrections, and all manner of racist hate when promoted generate huge mobs is no surprise. The platforms spew disingenuous PR BS about how they will try harder to fix this, but what they really mean is they will try harder to supercharge their AI to promote anything without judgement that foments mobs as long as it means engagement.

Still clinging to the fallacy that 230 is worth this amplification of hate for profit (the very core of fascism)?

Graphic detail has become ridiculous. What bearing does how many blades of grass displayed have on game play? Game pubishers are obscessed in recent years in frame rates and polygon counts, at the expense of QA and original fun gameplay. Maybe, just maybe, while this graphics card SNAFU continues, game publishers just might go back to focusing on game play and shipping complete products instead of rushing out crappy games with tons of detail that add nothing. One can only hope.

Being the dick he has proven himself to be repeatedly, it won't surprise me at all if the MotherZucker lets the Q-Jerk Orange Clown back on F*ckUbook, and heavily promote him to boot, just in time for the next election.

Offered origianlly at $5 a month it was a promotional thing for sure. Play new technically demanding games on a potato notebook, Founders has been good deal.

In over a year of use the main issue is not Nvidia's server farm performance, or my local ISP, but general traffic jams on the public Internet. When I play for 7 days, at least two of those days will have brief periods (an hour or two) when play is impossible. Check my internet connection, it's running fine at top speed. Check Nvidia's servers status, all green. Without edge servers like Amazon has for Youtube, or Akami provides, GFN is at the mercy of intermittent Internet traffic jams.

Given that the internet is the bottle neck, it is dubious the new tier's performance will fare any better. Still they are offering it to Founders at a bargain rate ($90 for six months) which is worth if it works, if not, they do allow Founders to revert back to the standard service and Founders rate if not satisfied after the 6 months.

My read of that MS article is that previously Win 10 updates work by keeping old updates on disk, so new update file sizes can be smaller, as new updates on install pull useful code sections from the old updates. With the new method, logically this means new updates from now on will be much larger, taking longer to download while totally hogging your disk and network access, making productive work impossible.

What gets my goat, is after tying up your disk and network to download the update, and after install and reboot, the Windows security program has to do a slow deep scan of the entire mess which can take hours, further degrading disk access times and making productive work difficult.

As all commerce moves ever more into the digital realm, Apple and Amazons practises will become clearly recognized by the rank and file for the blatent banditry it is. Take a cut to sell something in your store, fine, SOP in civilized society from day one, but 30% of any digital trade that may pass through said product. That is insane. That is like your bank claiming they have the right to charge you 30% of any bills you pay with a check.

This won't stand.

It always kills me when the so called mechanics who almost always forget to either tighten the oil plug or the battery connections on every visit, trot out mid-oil change with a list of things they found wrong and they say they can fix. It's all boilerplate global end game capitalism scripted and required up sell.

Just do the oil change and make sure the oil plug and the battery connections are tight.

Somewhat interesting article, too bad it dances around the issue of what appear on the surface to be American and Japanese games and consoles showing up in some shops in China. China is the leading digital knock off generator of the world. The authorities there just look the other way if you pirate/clone/ or sell a knock off. Any discussion of the Chinese market that does not address IP theft, and wide scale knock offs is moot. Movies, cable, games, consoles, you name it, it gets copied and sold there and not a dime goes back to the original creators.

Another corporate quick buck scheme of trotting out old console product that no longer sells and repackaging it as a half assed PC port. I won't even consider it unless it has the following PC game essentials:

* fullly adjustable POV, brightness, contrast, bloom etc.
* full keyboard and mouse support with re-binding of any key/button
* movement, camera, mouse and keyboard control that is fluid, not the usual slow as molasses PC port garbage
* full player controlled game save and game load facility

Some lazy ass assignment writing here. The worst 2 things about Windows 10 updates you can do absolutely nothing about if you accept updates are:

* Hogging Disk reads and writes - Win 10 updates take their sweet time unpacking while demanding 99% of your system disks attention, leaving any programs you want to run at the back of the line for disk access. Then after the files are unpacked and actually installed after a reboot forget about actually getting some work done, Win 10 virus checker then has to scan the update, the downloaded files and all the stupid temporary files created in the unpacking and updating. This again takes 99% of your system disks attention, leaving anything you want to do waiting in line for disk access. Such confidence in their own security, they have to virus check their own updates.
* Hogging network bandwidth - Win 10 claims is does not do this, but if you run a network monitor you will see Win 10 updates hogging 90% of your bandwidth while it downloads, and it does not care if you were doing something that depended on that bandwidth.

Twitch's nurturing of uncivilized subversive behavior: that's exactly what you get when 230 removes any liability for publishing. As long as 230 stands this crap is just going to get worse.
