Daily Tech News 28 July 2021

Top Stories

  • At my day job, the first of our big product launches for the quarter went live at 1AM - the joys of living in Australia but having customers all over the world.

    The phone didn't ring.

    I went to be fully expected to get maybe two hours sleep, but I slept right through until 7AM when the dickhead next door with the detuned sports car who is probably breaking several emissions laws leaves for work. Even in lockdown.

    Anyway, the site did not melt down in the face of a massive marketing campaign, though we did shake loose a couple of bugs and a slow query on a secondary database.


  • Thought I was going to get away with just a ten-hour day today, but no.


  • Having ruined everything else, the commies are coming for gaming PCs. (Hot Hardware)

    If you live in a third-world shithole like California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, or Washington, you are no longer permitted - get that, permitted - to buy a high-end gaming system. Because fuck you, that's why.


  • Closer to home:



    Go jump in a volcano you fascist fucks.

    Yeah, this is one of those bullshit proposals that pops up all the time, with slim to no chance of ever making it to a bill, much less becoming the law, but still, volcano.

They took your guns! This will happen too.

2 They took our guns - and result is there are more guns in private hands now than before the "ban".

And that's just counting the ones they know about.

Posted by: Pixy Misa at July 28, 2021 04:32 AM (MqQvv)

3 Yeah. I was going to say the same thing; they banned guns (and they got away with it). I would expect them to do whatever they think they can get away with.

They're not bothered by what the voters/citizens have to say.

And (I'm sorry no offense) this is mostly the citizens fault.

I have to say, can see the US go/going the same route. I do think the reaction will be a bit different but after what I've seen the last 2 years and the willingness of supposed smart people to acquiesce to orders that deny ones rights and doing little to nothing about it at the time I'm not sure what the outcome will be.

Sure people are up in arms now over a mask mandate but will they defend those of us who refuse to get the vax when almost everyone (well almost 50%) has gotten the shot. They're not going to fight for our right and without a large number of people defending a persons right to refuse to do as ordered by the Gov't illegally we'll get ordered and arrested.

It's not a matter of "If" anymore but a matter of "When".

I've lived thru some rough times but this is the first time I was truly afraid of this country.

So a bank statement is worth 20 points, a passport or driver's license is worth 60 points, and so on. You need to provide a total of 100 points of ID for some things... Like getting a passport or driver's license.

My grandfather once explained to me on the DDT ban that the day would come we were taxed on the air we breathe and water we don't drink. He also said they would one day outlaw working on your own car, and interfere with your electronic communication.

He understood human nature and the democrats more than I did.

21 Hopefully this gets even worse for California gamers/hackers and they finally understand that commies hate them and want them to die, so they turn thier skills/rage on destroying them and the tech companies who put them in power (and probably are exempt from these limits)

Olympic observations:

What a joke the Russia ban is, when they have afull team, with probably all the same cheating, just under a different name.

NBC's coverage is shit. They're having the Olympics in probably thr most interesting city in the world, and have done no pieces on it. When they were in China and Russia it was ak puff pieces on the commie trash. And it's not like they couldn't do it, NHK US has been doing normal on the street programming for 12+ months.

You gave people whose parents/kids/etc site and they go and win for them, they power through. Odds are she got a mean tweet or didn't think she was getting a high enough score, so she sulked. It's sad because she seemed like a decent girl, but then pulls this selfish shit.

She should be removed from all competition, but they'll let her compete next week in the individual events.

Yeah but it's the Post. They've been breaking a lot of news, and Karol Markowitz does a lot there. But that's then used as a list of stories the rest of the media knows to ignore, or lie into obscurity.

They'll keep this up until Cuomo is gone/arrested (which won't happen with all the corruption) and it'll be completely ignored by all other US papers outside of Epoch Times (which also has their own great and much harder version if sudoku)

After being on the road for a week, the lawn needs mowing, but off and on thunderstorms all day today.

At least the power brake bleed kit arrived, so I can tinker in the garage till it clears up.

Good to be home.

I do. I've tried the others, they suck.

And at this point, I'm probably already on several lists and the NSA has bugs all over my house. My wife and I taunt "Agent Garcia" for fun because odds are good "she" is really there.

It's fun. Last week we welcomed her back from maternity leave, I commented that she was still looking a big pudgy and the Wife actually elbowed me.

Yes. I suppose it's been building for a while w/the garbage "up close and personal" stuff. I remember years ago when that speedskater dude choked because his sister had died days before the Olympics, which was sad, obviously. However, NBC and the rest of the media covered this dude's story non-stop, when meanwhile, the US women's speedskater Bonnie Blair was busy kicking a$$ and not choking, winning golds.

The media has lost its ability to assess what is worth focusing on, and it's become more like on big group therapy session. Sure, don't be cruel when an athlete chokes or drops out, but for pete's sake, it is neither stunning nor brave, and her teammates who didn't choke would appreciate some coverage!

I haven't been following it, but there were a couple of interesting comments here regarding it.

First was that the press KEPT pushing whatever her problems were, so that they kept reminding her, so that they kept making things worse and worse and intentionally stirring up whatever the mental problem was to begin with. I thought that was an interesting observation.

The second was that whatever medication she used to not be crazy (Adderall?) was illegal in Japan and she wasn't allowed to possess or use it. Seems like that would be a good storyline for the press if true.

166 >>The story that is really there for the telling but will never get out is the extremes these folks endured to become who they are.


Those stories are being told. There's at least one documentary on the team doctor who abused the gymnastics team.

Michael Phelps also made a documentary about the emotional rollercoaster of being an Olympic athlete -- training for many years w/little income, sudden fame when you place or win, media cruelty if you then publicly choke or public misbehavior, then back to obscurity. I would bet what Phelps is doing, working w/athletes to handle this emotional stuff, factored into how they are covering Biles.

If you say so, self-admittedly I stopped watching when the Olympics devolved into the "Fuck George Bush" revival tent near the turn of the century with the frequency and fervor I had in the 80s.

If athletes are not proud representatives of the entire nation at the Olympiad why watch?

So I don't as much as humanly possible.

171 Even the commercials are all this woke bs. Admittedly, I don't watch the tube and haven't for years but - wow.

If you didn't know what product Toyota manufactures and sells, you certainly wouldn't be able to figure it out by viewing their ads.

My son was "woke" when I showed him the difference in commercials from my youth and his.

Once upon a time lads ads sold you on products not choices in your life outside your needs.

The Wife and I have turned it into a game whenever we watch TV.

1pt White Male in commercial...
2pts ...and not a Homer Simspon
3pts ...and not gay or trans

I'm ahead this week 1-0 and it's only Wednesday.

Seriously, you can watch 3 hours of TV now without seeing a white guy in a commercial.

Maybe if the media would focus on more athletes and sports than just 5 along with the enema of their "human interest focus" rather than on the sports they wouldn't have time to engage in cruelty of some. The girl that won gold in skeet shooting doesn't get any fame or celebrity.

The big banks only need 5 weeks of credit card/debit card data on you and then can predict with outstanding accuracy what your future spending will be. It's scary.

Skeet shooting is problematic comrade, yes it is an old competition but seriously she is a shooter.

185 Local school district reluctantly dropped the mask requirement late last year after a huge uprising by parents and rowdy school board meetings. They remained highly recommended and in all facilities and I saw at least 90% face diapers compliance the other day. Now they gladly reimpose them due to CDC recommendations within hours without waiting for any feedback or comments. If there was any doubt this makes it crystal clear who they think they are working for. And it isn't the parents.

188 Sounds like it's time for Australians to start using their second amendment rights for their intended purpose.

What's that you say? Australia HAS NO second amendment? Well, Duh. We still do and we'd better be practiced because we're very possibly going to need those skills soon.

191 I've donated to the EFF before, and will do so again.

Has the EFF said a single damn thing regarding the junta's public admission to directing big tech to censor information that conflicts with their narratives? Given that they're tied at the hip to the American Communist Litigation Union, I'm guessing that answer is, "no." I've performed a cursory search of their website and looked through their e-mails (I'm on their mailing list because of Let'sEncrypt) and have found nothing.

192 Those high-end gaming systems that are banned in Cali and other stupid places - who cares because *gamers*, right? Well, those are also the sort of boxes people buy to do artificial intelligence, deep learning, and visual effects for movies.

Sure you can do these things on a punk-ass computer, it just takes longer, a whole lot longer. Imagine a car engine with 10 horsepower vs 200 horsepower. You can still go on a long trip, but now it takes weeks instead of days.

Here's the EFF from two weeks ago:

Claiming that "right-wing voices are being censored," Republican-led legislatures in Florida and Texas have introduced legislation to "end Big Tech censorship." They say that the dominant tech platforms block legitimate speech without ever articulating their moderation policies, that they are slow to admit their mistakes, and that there is no meaningful due process for people who think the platforms got it wrong.

They're right.
