Amazon has a trailer up for season two of its half-billion-dollar flop, The Rings of Power. (Ars Technica)

Nobody knows why.

10 Next Monday, May 20th, Microsoft is rolling out It's Qualcomm based Surface Pro 10 and Surface laptop 6. I also think the other PC vendors will be officially rolling out their Qualcomm devices on that day are shortly thereafter.

Unlike Microsoft's previous outright failures or half baked measures to bring ARM based computing to Windows, these Qualcomm CPUs based on leaked performance information and leaked road maps over at Dell look like they're going to crack into the x86 world in a spectacular way. I for one am looking forward to my new Qualcomm overlords taking over.

15 Meanwhile, in Illinois and an at AT&T everything seems to be running according to plan.


Former AT&T Illinois President Paul La Schiazza is set to go on trial in September 2024 after being indicted on charges of conspiracy to unlawfully influence [bribe] then-Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan. AT&T itself agreed to pay a $23 million fine in October 2022 in connection with the alleged illegal influence campaign and said it was "committed to ensuring that this never happens again."

Were never happening again probably means not getting caught next time.

44 Power is provided by a 1.6 litre BMW road car engine, running on automotive petrol or gasoline and delivering 104 kilowatts (139 hp).

The prototype AirCar is of comparable length to a Mercedes S-Class saloon, at 5.2 metres (17 ft 1 in), and around 2 cm (0.79 in) narrower.[4] Overall weight is 1,100 kilograms (2,400 lb).

A second, pre-production prototype is expected to have a monocoque fuselage with a more powerful 220 kilowatts (300 hp) engine.

It's worse. The showrunners actively *despise* the characters--especially the main male characters of Rand, Perrin, and Mat. They did everything they could to destroy those characters in the Amazon series.

If we don't burn pasture, invasive trees try to take over from big bluestem and little bluestem grasses.

You can look up pictures of Flint Hills burning to see. In March, we were surrounded by fields on fire. You need the right low winds to do it safely.

One fire got away, and burned 4,000 acres. No homes and just one shed were burned in that fire.

Well, if elections are a real thing, her constituents have been re-electing her for decades, so it would appear they are happy with her.

I wouldn't say she got demolished, she spouted here typical leftist twaddle and I believe her side of the debate was voted the winner, so, we can laugh and mock these lunatics all we want, but they control the levers of power and the only thing that can rip the yoke from their hands is death itself.

193 Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes.

Just for trivia, SPAM is a name combined from its constituent parts, "SPiced hAM."

Prayers for those who need them, even if they don't know it.

Very busy morning, so will see you all on some later thread.

195 "Is there anything I can so about apps tefusing ro work on my phone because it's so "out of date," other than buy a new phone? (It's a Samsung Note 9.)"

Tell them you are in the country illegally, and that you need a free phone.

Their first, last, and only allegiance is to the Deep State, so I suppose that is true from a certain point of view.

208 Spam comes in "singles" besides the can. Like those foil pouches of tuna, but it's a single slice.

Perfect for english muffins with egg and cheese.

Hah, there's no way to make that work. I'm whiter than paper, I went to high school with the guy that works at the cell store almost constantly, and I've met all his coworkers over the years. Appreciate the laugh, though!

"Amazon has a trailer up for season two of its half-billion-dollar flop, The Rings of Power."

More like a cool $1 billion. They paid $250 million to Tolkien's estate just to get the rights to the notes at the end of "The Lord of the Rings". It is said they paid WB for additional rights.

And that's before spending tens of millions per episode for the first season. But they signed a 5 season contract They blew past half a billion a long time ago.
