I'm evidence based. Without some data showing this, I'm skeptical. There is a lot of finger pointing in media and reddit. There have been cases of private user info being improperly used, and employees promoting friend's accounts. Those seem to be isolated cases, and the fact they were caught (not covered up) is meaningful. These should be addressed with stronger privacy laws, and moving data to us servers. It's been pointed out that if China wanted private user data, it would just buy it since our laws are pretty weak. Whereas an outright ban, without evidence, is a clear 1A violation. There is a lot of content on tt that certain people don't like. That raises my eyebrows, when people start waving the ban pitchforks.

All corporations lobby for favorable laws. But when we're talking about 2016, it's external political entities using the social network for their gain, not the corporation itself. Big difference. As far as China trying to alter people's views, that's a big claim, do you have any evidence of that actually happening? I've seen it claimed but never proven.

Like every other social media platform, tt reflects the user. My feed is full of philosophy, history, science, as well as dance, comedy, dad jokes. Yes I like transition videos from time to time if they're well done. And yes there is the occasional thirst trap. If someone is seeing mostly stupid content, that's because they are selecting that type of thing, or rather filtering out the rest. It's wrong to blame the platform for things the user is choosing, and would do anywhere else.

What are your requirements for inputs or outputs? What kind of power did you supply to the camera adapter? Does a powered USB hub help? I don't think iPhone can supply enough power for any external interface over USB. iPad, it depends on the model. The TC helicon go solo is powered by 2 aa batteries and works with lightning iPhone. I haven't been able get mine to work with usbc iPad yet, not sure why but I've tried 2 cables so far. I would keep trying but I got the audient evo4 which is a better interface anyway. I haven't gotten the evo4 to work with iPhone yet either, but I have the TC one and I'm planning on just using the iPad anyway from now on. I'm currently experimenting with a fully.portable option. I found a USB battery pack with a built in hub! And it's about the size of the evo4 so they kind of.go together. At $16 it's inexpensive enough to give it a shot. ZMI PowerPack 10000mAh USB-C Fabric Power Bank USB PD on Amazon. The hub feature is "adapter mode" which is a dumb name but whatever.

More damage than destroying entire cities, and displacing a huge percentage of the population? Note that escalation here means enabling Ukraine to regain its own territory. Actually, Russia can suddenly back down, if they are kicked out of the temporarily occupied territories, and the cost of continuing becomes more than they can bear. That is exactly why the US extricated itself from all wars it did not win outright since ww2. As to why US wars went on so long, it's a simple question with complex answers. An oversimplified explanation for why we didn't outright win in Afghanistan is because the enemy was embedded in the population and could easily hide in another country where we couldn't touch them. To destroy the Taliban was not politically acceptable because it would have meant invading Pakistan and killing a lot more innocent people. That's if it even was possible to achieve, which it isn't. There are 3 possible outcomes: 1. Ukraine falls, Russia wins 2. The war keeps going indefinitely, with exactly the kind of damage and problems you don't want, with no end 3. Russia gets tired of all the not winning and gives up That's it. Not supporting Ukraine fully is option 1 or in best case 2. Are those acceptable to you?

Russia has lost 1500 tanks, but remember they supposedly have 10000+. I'm sure a lot of those are unusable due to poor maintenance etc, but it's not like they're about to run out. And they still have a lot of artillery. I am absolutely pro-ukraine. What I'm criticizing is the tepid pace of western aid. If we ramp up slowly that gives russia time. Ukraine has asked for 300 tanks. Let's give them 500. The US builds hundreds of new tanks every year and sends them directly to storage not because we need them but because no politician wants to be responsible for job cuts. Now there's a use for them.

Russia at the start of the war reportedly had 3000 tanks in Ukraine. They've lost a lot but doubtless have replenished some too. 31 is 1% of that. Even a couple hundred western tanks may not be enough, despite technical superiority. On the other hand if Ukraine is smart they won't spread them out but will use them concentrated in specific sectors to advance rapidly. Then we'll see just how good they are against outdated equipment. Still, the front is huge, and there are other factors like supply (fuel, ammo). A few dozen tanks *by themselves* cannot win.

Questions other people haven't mentioned yet - will you sit or stand. Typically LPs are significantly heavier (although some strat models are made with dense woods). - the neck. This is mostly where you'll be interacting with the guitar. Some prefer thicker necks, some thinner. Scale length also can impact your comfort. A shorter scale (24.75) is often easier to play than 25.5. That said, if you like the way the LP looks, you'll probably play it more.

Did you try to address that, with zendo, or there are lots of other resources on Playa that can help with that? Or did you perhaps keep it to yourself, thinking perhaps it's your problem and you just need to overcome it? With the heat and volunteering, did you leave enough time space and energy for self care?

Code calls function a, which calls function b, which calls function a. You would call that a loop, but it’s possible to make an arbitrarily complicated version of this with a lot of intermediate calls, that depends on runtime decisions, so it’s not (easily) possible to determine there’s a loop in the logic.

Yep. There is one more option, which is not entirely different from your point, and that is to make it economically unviable. For example to have interdependent economies, disruption of which would cause more damage than a war. Arguably this is a big reason why China hasn't invaded Taiwan. Russia didn't expect the range of sanctions that happened from its invasion, they thought it would be 2014 all over again (or Chechnya, or Georgia, or...)

I don't view problem solving as particularly mentally taxing. There's a payoff at the end of the problem solving, a feeling of accomplishment and mastery, that makes it worthwhile. Woodworking is similar when you're done with a project. Farming, it seems to me the problem is the work is never really done. The other thing is not all SWE jobs are equal. My previous 2 positions were at fortune 500 household name companies, they paid incredibly well, but I didn't enjoy the work (for lots of reasons). I moved to a smaller company where I still get paid very well, and I'm having much more fun because of the nature of what we're doing. Ymmv of course, the point is it's not SWE vs not-SWE, it's find what parts of SWE you enjoy. Maybe you'd like SRE better, or (shudder) management? As the grateful dead said, do what you love, the money will follow.

In short, silicosis is caused by sharp pieces that embed and damage the lungs. The sharp pieces are from mining or industry. Playa dust has been there for thousands of years, smoothed by water, and is not sharp.

So maybe try not being attached to the result. Sounds mysterious? Well, yeah, it’s hard to really explain.

Demoncrab has it absolutely right, I’m here to underscore it further. Consent requires knowledge of what’s going to happen (*). Furthermore, in the video, how do you know the victim can read? Maybe they are allergic to milk? (*) Yeah maybe there might be some hypothetical situations where someone could consent to things they don’t know exactly what will happen, but those generally also require a preexisting trust relationship as well as a way to instantly opt out (safe word).

You’ll read all kinds of opinions. There is no guarantee that anyone will have a good time. A lot of it is up to the individual. Some people seem to expect a concert or festival like experience, and it’s certainly possible as there are some stages and performances. However that’s not why us repeat offenders go. We could write volumes about what makes it different, and why we keep going back, despite the hurdles. The short answer is, because it is completely unlike anything else. There’s a lot of art, music, and events including ted talks. There are goofy interactions and shenanigans and incredibly funny things. There are tons of fun activities like minigolf or roller skating, taken to another level. There are unexpected and magical coincidences. There is amazing generosity and community. It’s an annual convention for eccentrics and creative thinkers, a celebration of human potential, a testbed for interactivity and changing social dynamics. It’s not all good, it can be really difficult for even veteran burners. What I personally have learned from burning man is to consider, why is the world the way it is, how would i like it to be, and how can i try to improve the world for everyone. If burning man is not in the cards, check out regionals, which are shorter, cheaper, and usually less extreme environments.

I agree with your sentiment, there has to be some accountability. I'm pretty sure bmorg is no different than any other corporation in that there is HR and there are standards. It's probably not as transparent as we would like, but on the other hand, we don't know everything that happened either. Burners are people, people can be deeply flawed, and BRC is not a utopia.

Sorry for your bad experiences, honestly. Rangers are participant volunteers, and as such aren't perfect. Just like dpw attracts a lot of people who don't quite fit in anywhere else (heck, that describes the entire event) and are often perceived as surly, and yet many dpw I know are great and generous. I wish people wouldn't lump all department members together so much. For example green dots self-select to be much more empathetic, where others tend to be "Imma fix this" with perhaps predictable results. I've heard many stories of Rangers who went way out of their way to help people out, and I genuinely believe that desire to help others is what attracts most of the group. It can also be really very difficult, which is a whole different thing for another time.

Had problems with broken down vehicles, people weaving crazily, bad merge etiquette (thanks car for nearly colliding with my truck, congratulations on getting to pavement 5 minutes before me). We saw a lot of flattened cones at the zipper merge, which could reflect how some people ignored the merges. Otoh, there were burners helping each other, handing out snacks and chatting. Did not see any roof sex this year, probably due to the excessive temperature.

Correcting myself with a snarkier answer. If you can find a Ranger, which will be a challenge because there aren't many on shift until Sunday, they will happily call to see where open camping is, and the answer will be 5:00 between the city and the airport, otherwise wait until Sunday and the land grab.

If you're actually in open camping nobody will bother you, everyone is too busy. It's only if a camp shows up and you're in it that there is likely to be an issue. On the other hand, play your cards right, and maybe that camp will be your new camp!

Rangers are not placement. I'm pretty sure placement won't really help you find open camping. What OP wants is a map. There's a map at playa info.

Just like theme parks, if you don’t like waiting in line don’t go to burning man. There’s a line to get in and a line to get out. There are lines for the portos, for ice, to get into the temple or the man, for orgy dome, at kostume kult or black rock boutique, and for the best bars. You’ll easily spend half your time waiting around doing nothing.

A lot of responses here are more about the burn and your preparedness, and while they have a point, I feel like that’s not what you’re asking. Without more details, what you are saying is you have boyfriend problems. Is what you want from a relationship, to “get along ok”? What are your expectations, do you want more? Are you getting what you want? Try to talk to him about why he won’t bring you. If you can’t have that conversation without blame or someone cutting off the communication, there’s bigger issues that need to be addressed that have nothing to do with a week long trip on which he wants to go solo.

Yeah it takes preparation etc. But there’s someone else in the picture. The bf could be helping with all of those things. In fact if he cared about OP, he would want to share the experience, and therefore take steps to include them. Asking OP to do all the work?

I once did it accidentally. It wasn’t even very dirty water, it was from a cooler, but there was some food that got wet. Tried to fix it with a little bleach, which just made things worse. I’ll be much more careful in future. Would you spray the inside of your house with it?

Hello fellow large noggin person! Consider getting some smaller frames for the burn, it’s cheaper than getting prescription goggles? I think there are online glasses stores that are quite affordable. If you don’t have, also get the auto-darkening, so you can have instant sunglasses.

Maybe, I’ve never had it and would really like to avoid it. Most of the people I know who have, had it relatively mild which means a very bad flu. Like you said, paxlovid, but that’s not an option on playa, and I don't know what esd protocol will be, but i’ll guess they only want to do, well, emergency type stuff, and not get sick themselves either. The larger point is the desert is not a good place to be seriously ill, options are very limited, and suppose you are in a tent with no a/c and the temp hits 114F, or goes down to 40.

You’ll hand out as many as you can make, which will be limited by your kitchen set up. A while back, a friend’s camp had a pro flat griddle setup and we made like 200 in less than 30 minutes, two of us working pretty hard plus servers, and they were all gone.

By the way, another thought.... I definitely hear you when you say you have depression. You are not alone in that, not by a long shot.

First, I hear you. We sometimes refer to the burn as cheap therapy. We also often talk about chosen family. So it's there, it's maybe just not quite been there for you, \*yet\*. Second, there are no guarantees. You doubtless know this already after 10 years. Burn week and afterwards can be hard, and bringing expectations can lead to them not being met. Nonetheless it's good to try, and you clearly want to. Bring your resilience and your inner self-reliance. Third, sounds like you've seen what you want at least a little, in the informal camp before that was no longer an option. There are many camps and projects, you haven't found the right one yet. Have you considered changing things up? You mention doing a lot of gifting, art, performance. Maybe consider doing less "stuff", and trying a different way to interact with people. I believe the greatest gift we can give each other is our time and attention, with reciprocation being even better when it happens. So for example, if you normally gravitate to bars to talk to people, maybe try other spaces. There's someone you want to connect to, and they are also at the burn. Where would they hang out? I tend to like quiet, chill spaces like tea houses or shade structures, ymmv. I was in line one year and some other driver asked my friend: "What are your intentions for this burn?" Finally, why not try joining a camp that seems nice? If it turns out being awful, leave and find another camp or go to open. People that sleep at a different camp every night are polycamperous, it can be done.

Sounds like a truism, government by itself as a concept doesn’t embody any particular values. <pedantic> Doubtless they implied the us government, which in the declaration of independence’s second paragraph, arguably includes both positions as fundamental values: “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. How then to reconcile those two seemingly opposing viewpoints, well that’s weird because they aren’t really at odds, everyone is in favor of life and liberty (choice), except some people want to tell other people they can’t have choice, and their novel and extreme definition of life is the one true way. How that group got in government, despite the also clear separation of church and state in the constitution, that’s a whole other story.

I haven’t gotten it. Of my friends group I’d say maybe 20% have, and almost all of them are vaxxed. I know one vaxxed guy who died of covid (in his 50’s), several unvaxxed who died. All of this is anecdotal but the point is there are lots of people who haven’t been infected, and it’s still a big risk. And I hear being infected can suck really badly even if vaxxed. There is anecdotal info also about other events (regionals) causing mass infections, but nothing credible. Basically at the burn I’m likely to stay outside, keep a bit of distance, and wear a mask more often than normal. And I’m aware that there will be immunocompromised people there, and we all need to be respectful for their health.

Unlikely to incur damage. Anything that can rust, will. Hosing will remove a lot but there will still be a small amount of whitish dust everywhere forever.

Totally depends on what you want for placement, this year and next. For example let's say your goal was to be on esplanade. You'd need to ramp it way up as expectations for that are pretty high. But also, have fun providing the interactivity and do as much as you feel you can, that's really the entire point of the event, IMHO. Don't worry too much about specifics, just do your best to put it on and have a blast. It'll be good!

It's be interesting to find out. Moving supplies (trucking, load/unload) doesn't seem that hard, compared to combat, but I suppose it could be fubar given the right circumstances. I'm under the impression Russian logistics are mostly a problem because of rampant grift (old rations, wood packaged as munitions, cheap tires), and bad planning (op will take 2-3 days right comrade!). We'll.see how they fare in this new phase.

Bush did lie, but legality for war doesn't rest with the invading government, if it did then Russia's invasion is legal. It is with the UN. Whether the UN authorized the Iraq war is also debatable, there are some theoretically legal grounds.

Another difference is what you do with the conscripts. If you shove them into the front line, the results are predictable bad. If you use them to move supplies around in the rear, much less of a disaster.

False. Silica dust can cause lung damage but that's associated with the kind produced by mining and construction, because it has microscopic sharp edges. It gets into your lungs and starts cutting, and natural processes (mucus) cannot eject them. Playa dust has been smoothed by millenia of water and friction. Mucus can capture it and you can cough it out. You want to wear an n95 or better during dust storms, but you won't get silicosis. If you could, thousands of past Playa visitors would have it and the event would not be allowed.

For differences, tuna camp is now impossible to find, there's more cops, Barbie Death Camp is not PC, you can buy fuel and propane (if you're an art car) but not coffee, inner playa constantly smells of generator exhaust, lots of accents and IG influencers. The larger numbers of people means more crowds, better chances of good drug ground scores, more stolen bikes, way more mooped bikes after labor day.

This was before the Russian empire, it was then actually the Prussian empire including large parts of what are now germany and all those other tiny Eastern European countries. Later, the Poles revolted and formed their own country. The (now) Russians were incensed and in retaliation banned the letter P from the language, hence the name “Russia” was what was left. Other letters were similarly cast out including Z and Y, because of other revolts (The little known Zagreb mutiny, and everyone knows the Yugoslavian incident). This birthed the modern cyrillic alphabet.

Mines won't slow the Russians down, not unless in sufficient numbers that they become a long term liability. Portable antitank weapons are the way to go. A few thousand of those in the right hands might change the outcome. However, this is all armchair generalship. I have no idea what Ukraine's military is like and whether enough citizens would take up arms to actually fight back. Unfortunately I guess we will find out soon.

War is indeed horrible, but frankly there is only one way to stop war and that is to be ready to wage war on those who want to use war. Hitler kept going because no one stopped him, until it became necessary to wage total war against the axis. The only thing keeping the world mostly safe right now is nukes, and NATO. If Putin doesn't see that attacking Ukraine is going to cost him dearly, he will do it. Regrettably the US seems to have ruled out any military response. While I never want to see anyone go to war, let Putin be the one who has to gamble that we would or not.

Just because there is a lot of space in matter doesn't mean it's wrong to feel it's solid. It's not inconsistent. It's the way that the various forces work at different scales. At our scale it's "solid". And calling it an illusion is itself inaccurate, because language. It's more that we don't have senses able to perceive the subatomic reality. When we build machines that can, we're extending our senses.

Their answer I think is more that quantum physics is weird. As to the simulation... If it were true it still posits the existence of the observer. If we're just saying everything you see is an illusion, of course it is. You can prove that by putting on polarized lenses. Then the question is not "what is actually real", it's just "is my reality absolute". To me, there are realities: concrete is hard. Gravity works. A quantum theory about time and gravity wells is cool but doesn't change the experiential existence we have.

Opinions are one thing, but differences in facts matter, otherwise it limits what you can actually talk about. Like can we agree that science works or not? Can we agree on logic?

I’m a software engineer and I’ve been living this for decades so maybe I know what I’m talking about. For example, did you ever have to deal with legal issues? Google “revenue recognition”. And “sarbanes-oxley”. It’s more complicated than you think. Windows isn’t the only factor. There are drivers and hardware. Again to use that example, Photoshop can take advantage of new kinds of cpus and gpus. How would you feel if you bought a rtx 3070 or switched motherboard to the latest amd, only to find that to get a performance improvement in software you had to shell out $600?

The “normal” model you speak of existed only because software was delivered on physical media and was difficult to update. In the age of constant connectivity and constant change, the only model that makes sense is subscription. For example if you upgraded from iOS 12 to 13 but Photoshop 12 no longer functioned requiring you to shell out $600 for a version that worked, you’d be angry, would you not? Well that’s how it used to be.

It’s not inherently more profitable, but it is a more predictable income stream. Another major reason has to do with how revenue recognition laws worked. It was a major pain to not be able to recognize actual money until the software was in the box. As to whether you need the features, it’s true, nobody needs *everything* in CS. But maybe you can appreciate frequent performance improvements, bug fixes, compatibility updates, things like that. And hey, you can unsubscribe if you don’t use it for awhile. Anyway point is the sub model has benefits.

“Aiming for” doesn’t mean they can get there. Worldwide sales is ~66M. You believe tesla can sell ~1/3 of the world’s vehicles. That’s … possible, but seems optimistic to me. It’s not like manufacturing an EV is harder than ICE; rather the opposite.

You have a reality problem. The tax proposal affects 0.0002% of the population. You think it affects every investor. You are wrong. Will future generations tax wealth at other levels? Maybe, maybe not. That’s why we vote. But making policy now based on hypothetical future behavior 100 years from now, and a completely different situation 100 years ago is futile and indefensible. We expanded income tax — due to 2 world wars and a great depression. The only reason we are even talking about wealth tax is because right wing antitax zealots like you hate social progress and want to revert back to the world of 100 years+ ago, reversing all social safety nets. No thank you.

Ah yes the argument that rich people will always avoid taxes therefore it’s pointless to tax them. Nobody is talking about more people selling than buying, it’s rather exactly the opposite. The amount elon would pay turns out to be less than 1/100 of 1% of TSLA annual volume. You would have us believe that will drive the price down. In a month where the price went up 30%. Your math is not credible. You then return to a straw man, that because we can’t tax the wealthy we’ll just tax everyone else. A position that absolutely nobody is taking.

If I’m quibbling about minor points, then you are too, just in a far more loquacious way. The top 1% pay 40%, true. Sounds like a lot, until you realize that logically the rich should pay a lot more. Why: their taxes have been cut dramatically in recent years, and their wealth has correspondingly increased. Poor to middle income people can’t afford to pay more in taxes due to cost of living and housing. The rich can. In fact they won’t even notice. As to effect on the stock market, clearly you don’t understand how it works. A drop in stock price due to volume does not change the underlying value, it means more people can and will buy it at the lower price, and it’ll go right back up. Right now the unrealized gains are just sitting there being hoarder by a very few people doing nothing. Taxing that wealth forces a small amount back into circulation where it can do some good for the broader economy — fixing infrastructure, etc. You’re only looking at potential downsides, not the bigger picture.

When you say everyone will be on the same timetable: - only very rich people - only a small % of holdings - every one of those has different investments, it’s not like everyone will have to dump TSLA at the same time - if it does swing the market it’s because those people have enough money that a small % of their wealth swings the market which should give anyone pause This isn’t to say it’s a good idea. Taxes are never “good”. It simply recognizes that a lot of wealthy people don’t pay much taxes.

Also this has happened with the dot com crash, people exercised options causing a taxable event, then stocks crashed and leaving people no way to sell to cover. In investments however you can deduct losses so I don’t think your scenario would occur. But if it could, the answer is you have to plan ahead and be able to cover your taxes.

Brian cox did some documentaries on the origin of the universe, and cosmology, that are pretty cool. I'm sure there are others, it's pretty amazing what people have been able to figure out based on just what we can see from our planet. I don't pretend to understand much, underneath it's complicated and involves lots of math. Still, saying all the universe was created at a whim of some omnipotent being is really hard to believe.

One other possible approach, if she says you believe you created yourself, say that is a straw man. She probably has no idea what that is, so you could educate her (if you feel like it).

If someone were to call me arrogant for not believing in a creator, I would, rather than respond “I’m not arrogant”, simply turn it around and ask them why they think that. And keep asking questions. That way you aren’t defending yourself (from a silly assertion), you’re asking them to come up with some reasoning, which is full of holes that you can gently point out —- with more questions. You are arrogant because you think you’re better than god. When do I say I’m better than god? Denying god is saying you’re better. A comparison is i’m stronger or smarter, how to compare to something that doesn’t exist? Deity does exist though. How do you know, other than being told that by church and bible and others? I feel it! If I don’t feel it does that mean it’s not real for me? … and so on. The thing is she’s trying to make you feel bad by denying something. Like mom seeing if you stole some candy. By asking questions you’re turning it around and making her defend her indefensible position. Mom, why do you think i stole candy, do you see a wrapper? At some point she’ll get mad and claim you make no sense and are twisting her words, or some way to get out of the conversation. It’s not a win for you, you won’t and cannot convince her otherwise, but that isn’t your problem.

The ability to think hasn’t changed. The difference is now people are sharing their regurgitated opinions on social media. A decade ago you would have to talk to someone in person for awhile. Now, people type whatever pops into their brain and it publishes unfiltered to hundreds of unsuspecting readers. Everyone thinks they are smarter than average, then and now. There is no such thing as an unbiased conclusion. That’s actually part of the problem, everybody thinks they’ve done the research and is suddenly an expert on everything, when in reality they carefully selected information that fits their preconceived notions, but they don’t understand that (for lots of reasons). Each side thinks the other side is the one that got it wrong, but as they say, the truth has a liberal bias.

Here’s something the normal event can do that wasn’t the case this year: evict crappy people and keep them out. While it’s never gonna be perfect, keeping people safe is incredibly important. That cannot happen if there is no fence or gate. Relying on LE is a bit absurd as they were pretty thinly staffed. People will reply “well that didn’t…” and you can stop right there, because it did.

I guess it depends what you mean by “on staff”. My point is there is a huge difference between the normal event with organized and supported ESD and rangers etc, and this where yes many of us were there to try to help out, but it could have been much worse. People seem to be relying on everything just working out great. BTW anyone can get a ham license.

Because the feature is buggy. I've had the brakes come full on while driving 55 on the freeway, no apparent reason, no cars nearby. Just last week I had it happen, probably because of a slower car merging in a lane to the right -- not my lane, the one next to me. It's not a trustworthy feature.

I'd modify a bit, don't bring anything irreplaceable. I bring nice tools but I clean them well afterwards. I bring a nice bike because it has components that don't corrode immediately.

A throwaway piece of plastic and electronics meant to deliver a small amount of making your house smell less bad. Opening the f****ng window would have the same effect. I mean whose house is so full of rotting garbage that they require something to make it less putrid. And who is inventing things to cater to that market.

It’s actually not. Silica dust in mining and construction is a huge problem, but that’s because it’s recently fractured and microscopically very sharp. On playa it has been sitting around for thousands of years with water and friction and has no sharp edges. So it will make you cough but it will not give you silicosis.

If you leave room, it gets filled, so then to get to safe room from the cutter you have to slow down, repeat… Similar thing happens on I80 coming back from the sierras, cars are all in the fast lane because slow trucks in the right, but then some cars flip to the right between trucks and accelerate passing all the cars in the left, and then all want to flip left just before the next truck. (Mosty i deal with it by driving in the right lane, slower but less crazy).

These aren't best practices though. They are the bare minimum for a modern 3d app. If you are going to do 3d you need to know these basic concepts. As for the tools, OP is using tools provided by the chip manufacturers who have every interest in making sure apps run fast on their chips, in fact usually they lend out specialized devs of their own just to help optimize. In all likelihood Nvidia and AMD have repeatedly sent Frontier very detailed reports exactly like this. So for a game to ignore all that is pretty blatant.

I'm relatively new (like 3 months) and haven't dabbled in the odyssey alpha so can't comment on that. I love ED for the fact that it's largely unique. My criticisms are about things it could do, rather than what it does. - trade ore for goods that require that ore and then take that somewhere else for even more profit, etc. So trading loops become more complex. - build a factory to do that processing, profit - add another alien race or 10 - play as a thargoid - customize ship appearance/function even more. If parts are so modular why can't I make a ship that has 2-3 thruster units? Or a really large cargo vessel, which would be so slow that it would require a bunch of escort vessels (eg a wing) to protect from pirates as it goes on a multi system trip? - take passenger from a to b where they do something that requires then taking them to c, and side quests, basically any kind of longer story arc - etc etc Yeah I get these are things fdev may have thought of and is doing their own thing. But why introduce fps, which we can do in literally hundreds of other games, and BTW looks like it basically replicates existing loops on foot (scanning, thieving, combat, srv base raids), when they could spend that time and effort implementing a bunch of other unique and compelling sci-fi type stuff? I will buy and check out odyssey, it'll be worth the new eye candy no doubt. I'm just hoping for something beyond what we've seen so far. If it takes time to develop, so be it. Insert obvious comparison to NMS.

If you look at that BLS stat closer.... the “failure” isn’t a fail, it simply means the business doesn’t exist anymore. It doesn’t mean it actually cost the owner money. They might have sold it. They might have moved away. They might have totally sucked at what they were doing. Then these are mostly small businesses which mean they were never gonna achieve a cap gains level event anyway, certainly not at the $1M level. Finally, if there was a loss, it’s a deduction.

Risk is a bogus reason. There’s less risk in owning a business (large enough to expose you to cap gains) than in working a normal job. If the business suffers a setback, they will respond by cutting costs — usually by laying off workers. Further, the owners have unlimited potential profit. They can sell the business for $1 bazillion. Employees never get unlimited wages.

Taxes are not morality. Let's say you make 100k a year and you see that you can take a deduction that lets you pay 1k less. Do you take it? Of course, it's legal. Why is the situation different for corporations?

Not sure why people are downvoting my comment, it's true. In your example, the "bribe" is legal. The only way this changes is if laws change to get corporate money out of politics. Which is very hard because of the same problem. You may not like this. I don't either. But it's reality right now.

To expand on volunteering a little, you can do this on site. There are a whole bunch of opportunities, too many to list now, and discovering what they are can be done at the event, and is part of the fun. In other words, plan your survival (food water shelter) now, but figure out how to spend your time at the actual event. Because any plans you make, well let me tell you a little story about this one time, at burning man....

In 2012 the llc was running the event not the 501c3, right?. It looks like the full financial handover happened more like 2014 because revenue then was $30m, where it was $7m in "contributions" in 2013. The BLM saying it was a rise from $500k in 2012 to $44m is very misleading.

Not here to start an argument, but... do you have stats that show there aren't a lot of homeless people dead from covid? And, since almost by definition homeless people are largely outdoors which implies a certain amount of separation, why would they be more at risk than, say, church goers or barhoppers? Finally, are homeless people not taking precautions, I personally know people whose job it is to work with homeless to try to keep them safe/healthy and not just from covid. The larger point is you seem fixated on this one thing and I can't help but wonder if you have any actual evidence or if you're just trying to validate your opinion.

When you say the burn is "built on more universal moral foundations than most religions"... A couple things come to mind. You could say that about most societies, but what does it really mean? Things like "do no harm" are assumed everywhere. The Principles? They are not a foundation, they are an emergent property. They didn't exist for a long time until they became necessary, and in any case they are subject to interpretation. If there is one thing I try to convey to people about the burn, it is that it is not any one thing, it is many things to many people. If people start following a cult [*], it's arguably bad regardless of the cult's morals/teachings/entertainment value. [*] I've therefore dedicated my life to weaning burners away from the cult, I go every year to the desert to warn everyone in person.

This also reminds me of a joke. A bum sees a well dressed man across the street. A woman walks by and the man says something to her. Then they go into his house. The bum sees this happen several times. Finally he crosses the street and asks what he said. "It's simple. I say, tickle your ass with a feather? And if they say yes, we go inside. If they are shocked, I repeat, typical nasty weather? And no harm comes of it." The bum says OK and walks away. He sees a woman and says to her: "hey lady, stick a feather up your ass?" The woman is shocked. So the bum says "fuckin rain". (PS consent is sexy)

Many chairs are not particularly customizable. The hyken has some spots that appear to be molded for attachments or alternate configurations, that make it pretty easy to attach brackets. First time using 4040 and 2040, it's super strong and fun to work with. I'm not finished yet. Next up is the throttle on left side. I added a length connecting the two sides on the bottom but will either remove it or lower it because my legs actually touch it (due to the chairs mesh).

I’ve run into 2 griefers at farseer already. Also with asp set up for exploring including srv i can get to materials i need fairly fast. - don’t pin a blueprint until you get level 5 - materials you need to farm, farm way more than you think you need, because eventually you will need them

I’ve been playing 3 weeks so not the best advice but... this is a big complicated game and it’s gonna be impossible to make a lot of progress without information. However, what i like is that you can do whatever you want and at your own pace, so carry on. Home system is somewhere that has enough stuff nearby. There are a lot of choices. I personally like not too crowded. Fsd is basically all about range. Longer range means fewer jumps which in the long run saves time. Range is affected by mass so a lghter ship can go farther, all else being equal. Cobra is somewhat limited because there is only so much you can put in there. Best range will be if you strip everything else. It’s hard to make a ship that is both good at exploring and good at combat. Single purpose ships are probably the way to go. For a starter hauling ship, get the hauler. It’s ugly but cheap and really light. It also makes a good first time explorer for the same reason. No idea about wings.

Oh, ICE vehicles are amazing. The thing is so much of the amazing is dedicated to fixing problems inherent to ICE. The fundamental problem is ICE loses a lot of potential energy to heat, and many of the workarounds are to improve this. Electric is much more efficient in energy use, and therefore has way fewer parts. In general, fewer parts means fewer problems.

Quality control should find these before they leave the factory. Another factor is design. By now they should have been able to tweak parts to fit together better. Then there is labor.

You know yourself best. Caring for others may not leave much room for others to care for you. Maybe you don't need that, but also consider trying it. One of the best things about the burning thing, IMHO, is how it can be unscripted and unexpected, so even being over prepared is too much (beyond personal safety and survival).

The cfpb was diametrically opposed too, banks hate it and therefore the politicians paid for by their lobbying hate it too. But it actually tackled a complex problem. That is warren’s strength, looking at daunting legal and institutional barriers and figuring out how to dismantle them. All bernie has done is complain. To his credit he’s introduced m4a legislation several times. On the other hand he’s had very little support so it’s been wasted, symbolic effort. If he is elected, he’ll still be lonely and outnumbered. Whereas warren has proven she can get things done.

This is exactly the problem. He is a populist demagogue promising things he cannot deliver. To succeed with his big ideas, bernie needs more than 3-4 people in congress. He should be building a base of support, not going straight for the highest office. He won’t live long enough to see m4a passed. It certainly won’t given a senate that looks anything like what we have now. And that is a very very big false promise.

He’s not trying to “improve” healthcare, he’s trying to replace insurance with single payer. That requires laws to be passed. Which requires congress to vote on them.

An amendment does not require working with other people. It is stapling a piece of paper onto a larger bill, so that people are really voting on the big issue not the riders. It does not require the same level of scrutiny, and can be minor changes in wording, or adding funding for a pet project.

Sure he was. He was taking votes away from hrc and a better/uncontested win for her would have given her momentum and allowed her to save money for the general. That it was a 2 person contest is irrelevant. Nobody knows what’s going to happen.

Burning Man is whatever you want it to be. It’s not “meant” to be anything in particular. What do you want out of it? Certainly some people end up questioning why. My first burn, when I came back, money was very confusing, for the first time in my life. Other people go for the raves, or the art, etc. Maybe some go for all of the above.

One person’s counterfeit is another’s lower cost alternative. Or popsockets wants a monopoly on selling pieces of plastic. If they have a patent or trademark that is being broken, there is a remedy and that is the courts. If the courts are slow or not working, that’s something congress has to fix, not amazon. The example of search also has another side... some other company can buy placement with a competitor’s product, doesn’t that improve competition?

30% is not that egregious. Back in the day of boxed software, it’s be more like 50%, and you’d have to pay the stores for better product placement. Also, if it’s a subscription, the percentage drops after a year (to 15%)

How can you make sure she has a good burn? You cannot. It’s her burn. You can help, you can caretake, but ultimately it’s up to her. What you can do is keep her healthy. Contact mobility camp who may be able to connect you with other resources. Last year, a campmate had an electrified bike towing a trailer that had a chair on it. That may be all you need for on playa transport. Whatever you figure out for refrigeration, have a backup plan. Connect with a camp that has power and space in a fridge for emergency or backup meds. You (both) can do this, but alone it might be difficult. Engage the community for support. And don’t forget to care for yourself. Even if you are dedicated to caring for another, find ways to have a great time as well.

It’s a large art and music event which runs on a gift economy and people build theme camps which can be bars or may gift food or other kinds of interactive experiences such as improvised humor or poetry and unlike other festivals you can bring your talents to share and there are many unexpected surprises but can’t forget how incredible the nights are where you are surrounded 360 degrees by lights from bikes camps and art cars which are by the way absolutely incredible like a dragon and a flaming octopus and lasers and fire and the milky way overhead if you get to deep playa where there are fewer people but some interesting art and sometimes soup or grilled cheeses ... (breath) ... you can get a foam shower with a hundred other naked people and there’s poutine at midnight also brioche from the bakery and a tokyo alleyway there’s a 747 and the sound camps have huge dance parties and so do the art cars some of which can synchronize their light shows and the sunsets are incredible and the ten principles and no I didn’t do any drugs well hardly any ...

You don’t need a bike. Others say “stuff is far apart” but in reality you won’t be able to see 1/10 of all the stuff there anyway, and by walking you’ll have far more opportunities to interact with others. Also you can hop on art cars. Also little secret is — the burner express buses that go the long way around the city to shuttle people around — are air conditioned, and often empty.

Yup. Silica itself is not harmful, it’s relatively inert. Silicosis is caused by dust getting in your lungs.... but it’s not just any kind of dust, it’s specifically crystalline silica dust often created by mining. One of the things that happens during mining is it cracks crystals; these minicrystals are sharp, and when they get in your lungs, they do not come out (your lungs can get rid of most dust by surrounding it with phlegm which you cough up; this doesn’t work for this type) and continue carving microcuts for years. The disease is not caused by silica but by the buildup of scar tissue in the lung. Playa dust contains a lot of silica, just like any earth. However it is formed by erosion. All the sharp edges have been worn away by millions of years of water and microabrasion. So no silicosis occurs. If it did, many people have been exposed over decades, there would be hundreds of lawsuits and the event would no longer be held on playa, if it existed at all. That said, take common sense precautions, wear a dust mask and avoid too much exposure.

Don’t be over prepared. Here’s a question for you. Why are you going? What pulls you to the desert? If you want to camp alone, you can do that, and maybe your level of prep is appropriate. If you are camping with others, maybe bring things they aren’t. Always bring enough food and water. But you won’t need half the food you think you do. You are going to the desert, but it’s also a city. This is the paradox of burning man. Edit: also, forget about those instagram models. Some people wear thrift store garments. What do *you* want to wear?

No one has mentioned angle grinder yet. Grinder is the best. It is insanely fast and generally awesome. You’ll need cutting but also sanding to take off sharp edges, which you can do with grinder. Also, grinders are hella cool and versatile. And grinder can improve your burning man game. (Use safety gear: goggles, leather gloves, appropriate clothing, use a bench vise. Ask your doctor if grinder is right for you.)

It’s not taboo, we want you to think about what happens when you drink too much alcohol when your body is dehydrated. When you are dehydrated, you stop sweating, and your body temperature won’t self regulate. Then various functions shut down, mostly in a desperate attempt to save your vitals. If you are also drunk, you won’t notice. This is bad. Very bad.

Tell him you have gotten life insurance on him, and he is going to camp ... in the desert ... in summer ... hundreds of miles from the city ... unprepared ... and you are fine with collecting on the policy. A little more seriously... if he doesn’t want to plan, he won’t, so plan for yourself. As others have said, things will change when on playa for you, I truly hope for the good. I wouldn’t coddle him though. Whatever happens, remember who you are and that you are not alone. And if you start to feel alone, reach out to people around you. You may be pleasantly surprised. Edit: one other strategy you might try... if you know any experienced burners, invite them to dinner.

If they result in an arrest they are reported (by the police). Just as in default world, many people don’t report problems, for many reasons. Mostly it is safe and there are almost always lots of people around. But there have been creeps and unfortunately there’s really no way to prevent creeping from happening. When creeps are identified, that’s another story.

“Shooters are the most safety oriented people”... this is a data sampling technique colloquially known as “cherry picking”. A broader sample set would include people that shoot their neighbors through the walls while cleaning their gun because they thought it was unloaded, those who leave loaded guns where their kids find them, people who think it looks cool to stick a gun theough their waistband, etc. You will no doubt dismiss these as isolated incidents, accidents, or idiots, but really there are no accidents in a world where we have statistics and past history to clearly demonstrate the danger. The simple fact is guns have no place in a crowded 24/7 party zone. In a hypothetical fantasy future where you somehow got a gun range to the event and approved by the cops, you’d quickly find that ESD and other safety volunteer organizations would simply walk away and that would be the end of the event.

Google Play has a serious limitation: the identity that creates the developer account cannot be changed. Apps can be transferred between accounts. But I'm not sure that is possible from a developer account that has been terminated. Only Google knows that one; you'd have to prove you own the IP and that may be difficult if you don't own the master account. You can create a new developer account with an identity that is not owned by any one person (e.g. on the company's domain, or some unrelated and easily transferred domain independent from your company but that your company controls). You can republish your app on that account (you'd have to change package and cert), or find a way to transfer the old one. From the new dev account you can contact Google Play support directly, they are pretty good about answering within a few days. I don't believe if you create a new dev account with a different owner (with no baggage), that Google would have a problem with that. BTW, if you republish: if you plan on getting big and/or selling someday, you might not want to use a self-signed cert, or if you do, use strong encryption and keep the passwords under tight security. Finally, if you can't get any satisfaction from Google, lawyer up. Good luck!

If you enter certain spaces (airport, some government buildings) they have signs that say you are subject to search. Not sure if that holds up in court. Also, use of dogs doesn’t require your consent. If the dog signals that is interpreted as probable cause. Which is problematic since apparently a trained dog can be prompted to signal at the operator’s command. They use a lot of dogs at the gate line already. The MO is they stop you for some minor infraction (tail light, blocked plate, expired tag), then call over K9, which somehow always signals, voila.
