  1. Today
  2. Razer released a new mechanical keyboard recently. It's still got proprietary optical switches and a weird wire stabilizer per switch that I haven't seen before, but several people on the /r/mk sub think it's halfway decent.
  3. Yesterday
  4. google fi indeed. i use mint and it seems pretty reliable. i stream youtube and music on my commute seems to work just fine. i mean some dead spot but minimal. wouldn't recommend for international use tho. too expensive. i would jump to google fi or local mobile service for international use.
  5. Dealing with T-Mobile for something with my mom has reminded me how incredibly annoying it is to deal with one of the big mobile providers is. I should just move her over to Google Fi. One plan. No confusion. No addons. None of this bullshit.
  6. article - https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/porn-block-uk-ban-government-bill-website-delay-sex-a9158396.html This was never realistically feasible so good riddance.

    League of Legends

    Also we have a LoL card game now. Cue the dota 2/artifact crowd reaction: https://playruneterra.com/en-us/ They also announced league of legends mobile/console versions: Riot Shooter called Project A: Riot Fighting game called Project L (made by the same devs behind rising thunder and the cannon twins which run Evo). LITERALLY A FULL ANIME (or at least animation) There's some other minor stuff in a full stream available here as a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4FGqymg4k4
  8. Last week
  9. imdb -https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7049682/ wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watchmen_(TV_series) This is mostly a placeholder right now. It starts Sunday. I plan to check it out.
  10. The Pixel 4 is pretty underwhelming overall. I don't think it deserves any more mental energy than that.
  11. "‘Matrix 4’: Neil Patrick Harris Lands Role in Latest Installment (EXCLUSIVE)" article - https://variety.com/2019/film/news/matrix-4-neil-patrick-harris-1203371790/ It just gets worse and worse. I don't like him.
  12. The latest pixel's look pretty terrible on a hardware pricing standpoint. It wouldn't be a big deal if it wasn't for the prices. I just don't understand the Pixel 4 XL's pricing. I'm looking at: Pixel 4: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14988/google-pixel-4-and-pixel-4-xl Note 10s: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14712/samsung-announces-galaxy-note10-note10 Comparing: Pixel XL 128 to a Note 10+: Price: $999 vs $1099 DRAM: 6 GB vs 12 GB Storage: 128 GB vs 256 GB + MicroSD Screen Size: 6.3" vs 6.8" (for 2 mm difference in size) Refresh Rate: 90 Hz vs. 60 Hz Battery: 3700 mAh vs 4300 mAh Charging: 18W vs 45W Rear Cameras: Dual (missing Wide Angle) vs Triple (not going to get into details) Front Camera: 8MP vs 10MP WiFi: 802.11ac vs. 802.11ax aka WiFi 6 And Samsung also has: reverse charging (WPC & PMA),

    Arc systems really has that market cornered don't they?
  14. Here's one of the first very obvious abuses of a red flag reporting law in action. An 84 year old Korean war veteran and former police officer (60 years of service) who worked as a crossing guard - was fired from his position and had his guns seized, because of unkind comments he made about the school resource officer were overheard by a waitress, who reported it to police. Not only did the police take his guns, his concealed carry permit, but they filed no charges, and also turned his guns over to his step-son. So the man was clearly not considered a threat, was not charged, and the police did not even provide paperwork to him regarding the seizure of his firearms. A random waitress should not be able to file a red flag law on a patron, based on a conversation she overhears. https://www.mvtimes.com/2019/10/11/crossing-guard-relieved-duty-guns-seized
  15. In most of the US, a non-prohibited person can legally manufacture their own firearms. In California (and I assume a few other states) they first passed laws that any firearm sold needs to go through an FFL, and is registered with California DOJ, sitting in a database somewhere. They then passed a law requiring specific serialization requirements and registration with California DOJ, thus preventing lawful citizens from circumventing registration by finishing 80% firearms. At this point they're now requiring all 80% kits be sold through FFLs, even though any California citizen that buys an 80% kit and finishes it without registering it with Cal DOJ is already breaking the law. This seems like a "feel good" law that makes no mechanical sense. If the California government was worried about illegal production of 80% lowers... that's a very strange thing to be worried about because eventually people are going to have files that allow for nearly the full 3d printing of firearms - maybe on a website that's distributed defensively. So at this point the decision to require 80% kits to be sold through FFL's seems arbitrary. It's not closing a loophole, it's not preventing people from creating firearms it's just making it slightly harder. Of course the real cynical part of my brain is thinking about where the cutoff will be moved to next, what happens when people start selling 79.99% lower kits? Or 70% lowers? Or 0% lowers? If someone from California DOJ had provided evidence of weapons manufacturing based on 80% lowers being sold illegally to criminals - this law still wouldn't make sense. Illegal possession of a firearm is already a felony, manufacturing a firearm without registering it in California is a felony. This law serves only to make it harder for a lawful citizen who wants to buy an 80% kit, have to go through an FFL, it only serves to add barriers to legal purchases. If we want to talk about the legality of 80% kits as a whole, that's a federal standard, if we want to lower that completion percentage that's another discussion; and again, one that will be made completely pointless in a few years when people are fully 3d printing the majority of firearms components.

    That keyboard looks great.
  17. Powered through this pretty hard. It was fun. I enjoyed it more in the second half than in the first half. Just started The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin ( wikipedia ). I have seen it on a lot of reading lists over the last couple of years. I have not read much yet so I cannot even give any impressions but the book begins with a section set in the Cultural Revolution in China during the 1960s which feels weirdly appropriate.

    Gun Laws

    I feel like I can see both sides of this. The 80% kits were really really close to the line of what I could consider a "loophole". That being said, there is a long history of the laws being stretched to incorporate a number of other things so I feel like it's a legit concern.
  19. Governor Newsom passed 15 bills relating to firearms regulation. Here's the full list: https://yubanet.com/california/governor-gavin-newsom-signs-gun-violence-prevention-legislation/ Just as a note, I actually support one of those bills. That seems fairly reasonable. I suspect the number of people this might apply to is limited, but it might close a possible loophole and/or allow a prosecutor to tack on a weapons charge. Most people are focusing on two bills SB 61, which prohibits anyone under 21 from purchasing a firearm (previously they could purchase a long-gun but not a pistol) and also limits all firearms purchases to once every 30 days, effective July 1, 2021. Basically people who are under 21 no longer have 2nd amendment rights in California. I want to again suggest that we as a country figure out what the age of adulthood should be - I'm getting sick of this weird fucked up middle-ground that 18-20 year olds find themselves in. The second is AB 879, which limits precursor parts sales - which is specifically targeting the sale of 80% lowers and AK stamp kits. Unfortunately a bunch of people on the internet are spreading the misinformation that AB 879 is limiting the sale of ALL GUN PARTS right down to magazine springs and other innocuous stuff, but it's fairly specific in it's wording and targeting of 80% lowers. That being said... the California DOJ has a rather poor history of pushing the envelope of their enforcement duties, and they could conceivably try and interpret this law more broadly by suggesting that other "firearm precursor components" need to be sold through an FFL.
  20. I guess Asgard's Wrath qualifies as the first AAA VR game. Most reviews I've seen have been positive.
  21. Kuhla might appreciate cherry's newest low profile scissor-key keyboard. https://www.cherry-world.com/cherry-stream-keyboard.html
  22. I'm calling this now, the new picard show is going to be dogshit. I'm still going to watch it.

    Destiny 2

    Depends on how you plan to use the exotic. If you're using them in PvP or Gambit, there's no reason to even infuse an older exotic because the power levels are normalized, just continue to use your existing 750 exotics if they have good rolls. If you're using them in PvE, then you should pull from collections and infuse it up. I would hesitate to infuse an exotic 1.0 up to current light levels unless it has really crazy rolls that don't exist - see this cheatsheet. Weapons with random rolls cannot be re-pulled. If you have something you really like you need to infuse it. If you have something you only sorta like, you can attempt to farm a specific weapon from the vex offensive or from the moon quests, or other activities. Exotic weapons can safely be infused.
