Daily Tech News 25 May 2022

Top Story

  • Seth Green - Oz from Buffy and Dr Evil's son Scott from the Austin Powers movies - had plans for a TV series based on an NFT.




    Then it got stolen.



    Since he no longer owns the ugly monkey jpeg in question he also loses film rights and the project is toast.



    Sometimes things do work out for the best.

Tech News

  • Nvidia had it's own big Computex announcement the day after AMD. If you want a server-only GPU that uses 600W and costs tens of thousands of dollars and can't actually output video, they're all over that.

    Not particularly interesting for you or me, but it does make them a lot of money.


  • Asus announced a new 500Hz gaming monitor. (AnandTech)

    Why?


  • Asus also announced their high-end AM5 motherboard for the upcoming Ryzen 7000 series. (AnandTech)

    The ROG Crosshair X670E supports two full-length PCIe 5.0 slots, plus a x4 slot running at a lower speed but I don't know what, and 5 M.2 slots two of which are also PCIe 5. Plus USB 4. Which when you add it all up requires more PCIe lanes than the CPU has available. Not sure what they've done there.


  • Spain is investing $13 billion to upgrade the country's semiconductor industry. (AP News)

    I was looking around what countries had semiconductor factories and I believe Spain was on the list - they're not starting from zero. And there are worse ways to spend $13 billion, as our governments prove to us every day.

    I do not expect much to come of this nonetheless.

6 Hey Pixy, from ONT.

359 Long time lurker. Just came to say that 'continue reading' often opens in a new page. When I hit the back button I get an ad page and when I hit back again I'm back to where I started. Well this time the ad was for porn. My Google chrome window on my pixel 4xl had a women baring her breasts in the shower and saying 'cum play with me'. I really like this site but I can't continue to enjoy the content if it's going to include sexual solicitation. I'm hoping this is something that can be fixed
I've spent far to much effort to battle this demon. If not it's cool no hard feelings.

12 So my 8 year old Samsung Note 4 phone finally died last week at the worst possible time, of course.

I ordered a Samsung S22 Ultra and got it set up. It is pretty slick and mostly set up with all the old apps I had set up.* It has no 3.5" mini jack. Since it has no SD card storage, I got the 512GB model. I'll be pleased if it last me another 8 years.

*I'm looking for a decent replacement for ES File Explorer if anyone has any hot tips.

Forced birth in a country that refuses to protect children from being murdered at school.

That is one way to say it. Another way is to say "Permissive infanticide in a country that sheds tears over children murdered at school.

Why the difference, Robert? Why is it ok to murder some babies and a tragedy when others die. Say it. Say the words. "Some babies are wanted, some are not. Unwanted babies are worthy of death"

I don't know the number of minutes, but it sounds like we have a couple of hero Border Patrol agents:

The Associated Press news agency reports that a US Border Patrol official who was nearby when the shooting began rushed into the school and shot and killed the gunman, who was behind a barricade.

Two border agents were reportedly shot in an exchange with the gunman. One agent was shot in the head, officials say, adding that both were now in a stable condition in hospital.

30 Oh and today's news cycle will be another disgusting display of liberals dancing on the bodies of children they would have no issue aborting.

Someone should ask every Dem why when they have majorities, like now and under Obama, they do nothing about Guns. They say they care so much, but they care more about the donations they, and their anti-gun lobby friends, get from making sure this continues to be an issue. I'm sure they'll blame Republicans, but ther Dems don't even try. Then they should be reminded of the many recent shootings in NY and CA, and their strict gun laws. Also they should be asked why the black man who shot up an Asian spa (and during Asian Heritage month!) was memory holed, because Stop Asian Hate..... except if it's from our biggest voting block.

Pft all we'll find out is how he once walked past a Donald Trump sign. That's why they all made sure to clean up his social media history within seconds (like they did with the Buffalo shooter, which if he had anything tying him to the right they would have left up long enough for someone to write about it)

I'm sure we'll hear the same stuff like "we didn't see this coming" which really means "we ignored the glaring signs,"

In other news, Baltimore County FOP released a statement that they had conducted a no-confidence vote on Police Chief Melissa Hyatt.

Eight specific points were made, including her barrier between herself and personnel, and being actually unapproachable. Not to mention rising crime and her insisting that a disgraced former Officer be recognized at a memorial.

The Chief calls this a 'distraction'.

63 People will say we need to ban guns, while ignoring how many people were slaughtered at the Bataclan and surrounding areas all because even the worthless cops in those countries don't have guns, it took them over an hour to get people who did. Same with thre terrorist attacks in England, where the terrorist executed cops and walked around without a care, because they knew no once had a gun to stop them (people took clear video from their houses, if one person had a rifle they could have saved many lives)

10 times out of 10 these killings wouldn't have happened in the US if existing gun laws were abided by. As almost 100% of gun crime is committed by people with illegal guns, or those who shouldn't have been allowed to buy guns, but pro-crime DAs decide not to prosecute, thus allowing people to then buy guns later (though that might be a benefit to them as without these mass shootings they can't fund raise on being anti-2nd amendment)

The obvious solution is to allow concealed carry on school grounds by parents and teachers if they want. So what we'll do is ban guns off of school grounds instead.

Yep. There was an article in an NRA magazine a few years ago that had a detailed writeup about how seven (7) people's names in New York City came up in something like 90%+ of all gun crimes there. And the local, state, and feds never did a single thing about it. I'm certain because it would have been racist.

92 32 I would be curious how a movie about 4 NFT's would have worked.
Maybe they should have a movie about what NFT's are first. Kind of a primer.


When these types of NFTs are purchased the new owner obtains Intellectual Property rights to those specific NFTs. They can then make t-shirts, mugs, books, anything, without paying royalties to the original creators. This is the only “real” aspect which gives the NFT actual monetary value.

In Seth Green’s case he wanted to turn his purchased NFTs into an animated series and also the merchandising associated with it. At the moment he legally doesn’t own the copyrights and could technically be sued by the new owner if he continues with his plans.

That might be the one I'm going to watch. The war of the underworld 1 and 2


I wasn't a fan of how their power levels carried over to every game, so they joined and would automatically be the greatest.

I read an article how they want to make a live action US version, and their only creative point mentioned was how they want most of the characters to be Asian...... since we know how well shows like Cowboy Bebop did when they prioritized quota casting overt actually making a good show. Hope they lose hundreds of millions on this upcoming shit show.

Oh and Cartoon Network is now making another 2 shitty FLCL shows.

What's worse is I think he already shot the pilot, i remember seeing casing notices for it, so i think it was a hybrid animation/real life show. So he's already put money into something he can't even move forward with.

Yes, he’s well into production. The trailer for the series is the video in the tweet Pixy embedded at the top. Green is trying to negotiate privately with the new owner who bought it from the hacker who phished it. I feel for the guy. That’s a lot of cash down the drain all because he got tricked, clicked, and logged in to something he shouldn’t have.

It’s my understanding this maniac shot his Grandmother first, didn’t kill her, because apparently she’s in the hospital.

So my guess: He shot Grandma, Grandma calls 911, police & EMTs show up. The kid was already gone in the truck headed to the nearest school, cops put out BOLO on kid and the truck. Border Patrol spots the truck, kid wrecks truck in ditch next to the school and runs in firing at everybody he could find. Border Patrol agents get there first, one agent runs in and kills the maniac.

I don't doubt this as it sounds reasonable, I'm just wondering why no 'journalists' are asking these questions. If he was being chased it may have led to an escalation of whatever he was planning or not planning to do.

I have a few mutual acquaintances with him and everyone says he's a really good dude, so while I often laugh at NFT/coin people who don't see how much of a scheme this is, I do feel bad for him.... outside of ther fact he's loaded beyond belief.

I still think a show about someone reaching down his stolen NFTs would be kinda funny (his old sitcom Dads was really good)

These things happened rarely when we were kids, at a time when guns laws were less strict and kids routinely had easy access to guns.

You can lay this at the lefts mission to break down the family and remove all vestiges of G-d from society.

I think that is part of it, or rather it's an outcome.

Most children have a mental problem in some shape or form, and these groups are taking advantage of that to create a group of vulnerable prey.

"You feel depressed? Maybe it's because you're in the wrong body. You feel alone, well come join our special community"

Instead of these kids getting real help, their becoming victims to these older pedophiles who want an army of confused children to mold.

Definitely questions that should asked if we had journalists who were actually intelligent and curious instead of the dim-witted propagandists we have.

My personal opinion is that the maniac was planning on doing this all along and just wanted to be famous like Adam Lanza shooting up Sandy Hook Elementary.

If I was Seth, and the buyback if that Ape doesn’t work ou, I’d just take the Ape’s outline fill it in black or white with the word STOLEN on the body somewhere and continue on with the show as usual. If he ever gets the rights back as the show goes on just fill the details back into the character.

Use it as a marketing gag and try to get some $ out of the clusterf69k he’s in.

130 Seth Green is most likely fine to keep the IP for his show. If he can prove it was stolen then the NFT still belongs to him, no matter who is in possession of it. It's an asset.
