    That is not much of an improvement.... If something is too strong then nerf it. If something is too weak then buff it. If it is only unique aesthetically then make it a skin ornament. Don't just whine and remove it from the game temporarily to force people off of it. Also the idea of putting big-ish unique pieces of content into the game only to permanently retire it a couple of months later should never have been entertained in the first place. I would love to have been a fly on the wall for the meeting where someone said "we should do more pvp where power level is factored into it". All these changes seem like Bungie, a group of people with a long track record, just don't understand.
  2. I am late posting this. I watched the movie a few days ago. Acting is good (not surprising look at the stacked cast list). Visually it looked good. From a sort of technical perspective this felt well made to me. It was very easy to sit through but I did not like it. There is a lot of time spent on trying to force a nostalgia for the 1960s hollywood/LA down your throat. The fact that it's loosely based fiction around some real people, real locations and real events only makes it worse. I have never been a big fan of any of Tarantino's films and this one did not change anything for me. I probably would not recommend this to most people unless they were already a Tarantino fan.

    I am very against the idea of temporary weapons that maybe only last a season or two and then disappear. I am just barely tolerating this seasonal mod stuff.

  5. "Sony Announces New Xperia 1 II Flagship, Teases Xperia PRO" https://www.anandtech.com/show/15529/sony-announces-xperia-1-ii-flagship Wow. Sony is still doing front firing stereo speakers and 3.5mm headphone jack.

  8. So firefox rolled out DNS-over-HTTPS as a built in feature which is cool and has some privacy and security elements to it: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-dns-over-https There are alternative options if you don't want to use the default Cloudflare DNS: https://github.com/curl/curl/wiki/DNS-over-HTTPS
  9. I'm actually just listening to the whole album from his youtube channel.....
  10. Found some mashups on reddit that I liked.
  11. I guess there is always the chance it will look different in person but I'm not thrilled about what I'm seeing so far. The hexagon lights look kind of weird especially since I don't really see any hexagon patterns anywhere else on the car. The wide "mouth" looks weird. I'm not a fan of the skinny, downward looking lights. Turning the strip into a light just seems needlessly flashy.
  12. The screen may be the same but there are some differences. https://www.vive.com/us/product/vive-cosmos/specs/ https://www.vive.com/us/product/vive-cosmos-elite/specs/ The elite comes with two base stations and there is a different layout of the external cameras on the headset. Either way, it's $900 so expensive.....
  13. I realize this post would have benefited from some example scenarios so I will add some now. Disclaimer: Neither of these things have happened to me. I am imaging them based of my experiences reading some threads online and watching videos. Scenario 1 - In the workplace, you observe a coworker stealing from the company in a non-insignificant way. Your possible reaction: You inform your manager. What I have often seen people say that bothers me: They are stealing from the company. Not you. The company is not going to reward you for your actions. The company has not shown any loyalty to you so why should you show any back? Scenario 2 - In a casual setting, you observe two strangers and there is a prolonged, one way, physical beating and the victim is not asking anyone for help. Your possible reaction: You physically intervene to stop it. What I have often seen people say that bothers me: They didn't ask for your help. It's none of your business. It's not your job. You don't know what is going on between them. Maybe they deserves it. Why risk yourself for somebody you don't know? Your possible reaction (less risky alternative): You contact emergency services/law enforcement. What I have often seen people say that bothers me: (same as above)
  14. The movie is slow and, after you remove everything else, the story is a very simple one of a son trying to get out of the shadow of his father and move on with life. Neither of those things bothered me but the movie as a whole is a bit of a mess. The moon attack did not seem to have any major affect on the journey or the main character. The monkey monster mayday did not seem to have any major affect on the journey or the main character. Was there even a reason for him to travel all the way to Mars just to transmit a voice recording? Why bother with losing the transport shuttle if he is just going to leia poppins himself back to the ship for the return? It was easy to watch and it had a few moments but I cannot say I liked this movie.
  15. "It's none of your business" "It's not your job" "Don't get involved it doesn't affect you" I read this and hear this a lot and I honestly feel really conflicted about it. On the one hand I understand that it's pretty silly in 2020 to have blind loyalty for a specific business/country/social group/etc. however isn't there something to be said about actively maintaining social order? If everyone went through life constantly saying "if it doesn't effect me directly then I am not getting involved" then I feel like society would really start to fall apart because the only "guardrails" preventing unwanted behavior at that point is the threat of civil or criminal prosecution. I don't know.
