Still Haven’t Found It

It hasn’t turned up anywhere else yet, so I’ve occasionally been checking the grocery store for the last few years.

  • Oh my god don’t get me started, the last time I tried that, it took me over two fucking hours to get the Microsoft account to recognize that I owned Minecraft. Apparently I bought the game so long ago that it failed to unify my accounts correctly so the separate “enter your password” screen just failed to load? I had to reset my account and open an entire new outlook.com email address just to link my purchase to the account I already have.

    Fuck those losers who succeeded only in making the game worse to encourage platform lock in so they can replace Java with Bedrock.

  • Trump is “absolutely” immune for “official acts” on Jan 6th, SCOTUS rules
  • The thing that bugs me is how any order given to subordinates is a use of executive power, right? So that’s immune. But say the subordinate considered refusing an unlawful order. Why, then would they decide to refuse the order when the president could also choose to pardon them for any crimes they committed during the execution of the unlawful order?

  • Fearing Losses, Banks Are Quietly Dumping Real Estate Loans
  • Nah, it’s a repost from late 2007.

    Sorry, I mean a repeat of late 2007, the fourth or fifth “once in a lifetime economic crisis” for millennials that will somehow magically end with billionaires owning an even larger percentage of the GDP.

    “How could this possibly happen, again, again, again, again,” will cry the economists billionaire simps.

  • Ohio election shock as Republican district shifts 20 points to Democrats
  • Let’s assume a 50/50 split of 20 voters to make the math simple, 10 each of R and D.

    If 1 in 10 R voters didn’t vote, that would be a 9:10 split, a 47% - 52% split, a 5% difference. If that voter then voted D, it would be a 9:11 split, a 47 - 57% split. To get that 20% split, you’d need a second R voter to change sides for an 8:12 split, which simplifies to 4:6, or a 40% - 60% split, which is a 20 point spread.

    According to the math above, you can see that I was wrong by confusing the 20% population of R voters and the 10% of all voters.

  • 1990 - 2005 Gaming Build
  • I remember going from 128 -> 192 MB in order to upgrade from ME to XP so I could learn programming with Visual C# 1.0. It was completely doable, assuming you manually disabled almost all the background services.

  • Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

    I prompted Bing with Ian Malcom's timeless quote, "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should," and it gave me this nightmare in return.

    Moral Crumple Zones: Crushing the Human to Preserve Venture Capital

    papers.ssrn.com Moral Crumple Zones: Cautionary Tales in Human-Robot Interaction (pre-print)

    As debates about the policy and ethical implications of AI systems grow, it will be increasingly important to accurately locate who is responsible when agency i

    Moral Crumple Zones discusses how humans are used to absorb liability from automated systems.

    With Tesla’s Autopilot and Full Self-Driving linked to hundreds of crashes, dozens of deaths getting traction, it’s time to remind everyone that Tesla’s design choice to disengage self-driving in the instant before impact is intentional to ensure the driver is in control during the moment of impact, even though self-driving disengaged way too late for the human to react.

    In my opinion, they’re sacrificing both bystanders and customers to preserve immunity from liability.
