Yellow is actually quite normally visible for most colorblind people. Blue is as well, interestingly.

The most typical type of colorblindness involves inability to distinguish between red and green.

You can absolutely configure it to allow exceptions for LAN so that you don't need to authenticate to their servers over the web.

I charge all my shit to 100% with a fast charger, always have, and it all works great.

This "issue" is severely overblown.

scottywh ,

Far less frequently than most.

I'm rocking a Surface Pro 4 as my daily driver PC, for example.

TikTok is utter trash all around but the music is the second worst part, closely behind the stupid ass fake voices.

This minus the pepperoni is my favorite pizza

Ubisoft Exec Says Gamers Need to Get 'Comfortable' Not Owning Their Games for Subscriptions to Take Off ( www.ign.com )

Ubisoft Exec Says Gamers Need to Get 'Comfortable' Not Owning Their Games for Subscriptions to Take Off::An executive at Assassin’s Creed maker Ubisoft has said gamers will need to get “comfortable” not owning their games before video game subscriptions truly take off.

I'll be perfectly honest.

I love and strongly prefer physical media games.

However, I also love Game Pass at least as a concept.

I've had it for several years now thanks to Live Gold conversion and VPN...

That said, regardless how much "value" it may provide, I will NEVER pay full price for it... I just don't feel like it's worth the price they're asking to me personally.

It's great for trying out the occasional game I'd never have bought or played otherwise though... And sometimes it introduces me to games that I feel like are worth buying that I hadn't heard of anywhere else.

For example, I bought Aragami 2 because I tried it on Game Pass and enjoyed it but I wasn't finished with it yet when rumors appeared that it was leaving the service.

I also played and thoroughly enjoyed Cocoon and High on Life thanks to Game Pass and feel like they're both worth buying at the right price.

I personally don't enjoy watching YouTubers and I rarely read reviews so I wouldn't have known much about most of those if I didn't have the chance to try them.

It's almost like it's replaced the demos that used to be so common but we can play the whole game now if we want.

Editing to add:

Also, fuck this Ubisoft exec... Subscription models should NEVER become the default way that we are expected to "consume" games (or any other entertainment really for that matter) and it's arrogant as hell for this prick to presume that we'll all just be okay with it.

Damn... You're also commenting on a thread about shit going on in Georgia and separately about DRSing GME?

Maybe?!? 😂

ME came before XP

More likely to mostly be 3rd world countries

I supported a production line as recently as 2015 that had an industrial paint mixer that still ran on NT4 Workstation

scottywh ,

Set them up with a VM on a newer machine

scottywh ,

Definitely sounds carrier related... Works fine for me on Android with TMO

scottywh ,

Mine's been doing it too even though she knows how much I absolutely despise tiktok... There's a reason I don't have that app... Lol

And the fucking fake voices... Ugh.... Such shit.

Like, usually I use my phone with the volume completely off and I don't even want to turn it on for most of the videos I see on here or wherever but it seems like for all this tiktok garbage you need sound to even determine why the hell someone shared it with you.

The vast majority of land in the US is still completely undeveloped.

scottywh ,

Pay is definitely not the problem and there's plenty of places in the US where I'd argue they're overpaid, in fact.

scottywh ,

There's lots of places in the US where cops are paid significantly above median wages for the region as their base pay and then they're also eligible to earn time and a half in nearly as much overtime as they could possibly want on top of being allowed to work extra side jobs in uniform for third parties.

They're also typically one of the largest parts of most major cities' budgets.

Fuck cops. They are overpaid if anything for what little they fucking do.

scottywh ,

I disagree that the overtime is expected. It's a benefit available to them that isn't available to the general public.

I also strongly disagree about the relative "danger" of their job.

My dad was a firefighter for 30 years. He got paid less than most cops and faced significantly more danger on every shift than most cops.

Fuck the police. They were shitty since their inception.

Full stop

The codec was quite popular for a decent little stretch there... Far more so and for far longer than the circuit city product.

I'm pretty sure only Paris' face was changed

scottywh , (edited )

It's definitely Tara Reid but after I look again I see there were some subtle changes to her face, as well.

scottywh ,

What does ATL mean on deal subs and forums?

scottywh ,

What the hell else would it be?

scottywh ,

Hilarious... I've been a member at Slickdeals for over 20 years and never seen that.

scottywh ,

That's also interesting... I don't think I'm familiar with RFD.

I'm also in the US and have never really frequented any deals subreddits really.

scottywh ,

I think they're underestimating how long reduced demand can continue... Especially when they make things even less affordable.

scottywh ,

I think there's plenty of assholes here but I personally encounter them less frequently here than I did on reddit

scottywh ,

Turquoise is also a shade of blue so I think that may make them illegal in the US since blue lights are only legal on emergency vehicles.

scottywh ,

So you’re saying it’s almost certainly a significantly larger percentage now.

Sounds about right.

scottywh ,

And the artists still don’t really make shit from it.

scottywh ,

Lots of people still use, and even pay for, Pandora.

scottywh ,

Your math is correct.

Weird Al was exaggerating to make a joke and a point.

What is your unpopular flim opinion

I’ll go first. Mine is that I can’t stand the Deadpool movies. They are self aware and self referential to an obnoxious degree. It’s like being continually reminded that I am in a movie. I swear the success of that movie has directly lead to every blockbuster having to have a joke every 30 seconds

scottywh ,

I bet they’re all shitty mobile games.

scottywh ,

It works a hell of a lot more reliably than things like fmovies… Streamio can be a little better with real-debrid but then you’re still paying…

scottywh ,

Not likely for long enough to acclimate …

Joke’s on you?

scottywh ,

Dental insurance in the US is absolute garbage that barely covers anything really.

I’d suspect Chinese companies would be a bigger problem than the American ones but what do I know.
