  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    Just a little addition, for something completely different. Remedy's Control game (I mentioned it before in this blog) is churning out new gameplay videos like hot cakes. I missed a bunch of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u8xFcvAOjs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klfa18JK98k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTB2PdtH7xw I am not impressed...

    Anyway, this iwall of text above s all not the entire reason why I wanted to express myself here. The real reason is the thing that appeared on the news just about today. It is worth to be an actual...

    to Charlie Stross @731 it's possible for the same person to be privileged in some contexts and subject to discrimination in others. No, that's not that he means really, IMO. This example would be just class relationships, and he is...

    THIS where that nice Mr Putin invites in as many ultra-right & fascists he can find to come & speak in RU ... This is Independent, as usual, so I take extra pinch of salt as usual. The hosts of...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    to whitroth @198 You describe something that, horribly, sounds like the FSSR in the nineties, almost. Having lived at that time probably contributes some - although most of these stories come through third parties anyway. My intention, though, is to...

    paws4thot @175 Wrong on (1) and (2). We are hitting the physical limit of smallness on components, below which quantum tunneling means that the chips just won't work. I'm not talking about miniaturization, it is about getting more (useless) power...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    We've already hit the off-ramp from Moore's Law, with the rate of doubling slowly to almost nothing. I considered this possibility, but there's two, no, three whole counters to it: 1) Even though the process will have to slow down...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    While I understand that this thread is all about OGH answering questions and not just some of us, I would like to add something to my previous post. I've been thinking for a while what would happen if processing power...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    Sounds like Xinjiang "Autonomous Region" ( Hollow laugh ) RIGHT NOW Understandable that US and UK and even EU or Japan would rather see the region (immediately within China state borders) turned into big burning junkyard like Afghanistan or Syria...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    We've not had a real space program for a few generations now (SpaceX is very pretty but it's basically delta clipper done commercially on some billionaire's whim). What's this, I don't even presume SpaceX has something up their, erm, sleeve...

    Certainly. All of them, to varying degrees, with (c) especially frowned on. That I can understand, but the idea is that in any of such cases the severity is determined by the court. ANd to bring a policeman to court...
  • Commented on Story time!
    In addition to that, the most recent story demonstrates one of the most egregious case of ignoring the law by "human rights" activists. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/article/2001329091/investigative-journalist-put-under-house-arrest-in-moscow There are "small" details here that did not get into the article, of course: 1. Said...
  • Commented on Story time!
    that nice Mr Putin ..... Several points on that. Firstly, Mr. Putin doesn't seem to be mentioned even glancingly, at least personally. As for "human rights" regarding that, IMO, he is being too nice to these people in our times....
  • Commented on Story time!
    As an aside, while LNG is currently twice as expensive as normal NG, the price should go down once the industry hits economies of scale. When industries like that hit economies of scale, what happens is usually called "default". Not...
  • Commented on Story time!
    So, you are saying that all of us, excepting possibly EC are Nazis? No. Not in a slightest. That'd be, uh, a gross overstatement - if you were, I'd be looking for a arms, not words. However I can not...
  • Commented on Story time!
    now that is YOU Believeing Putin's propaganda It is other way around, usually - they call it "Putin's propaganda" while it is usually Putin has to believe in the popular opinion to certain degree to stay in power. You don't...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Ukraine still hasn't applied for membership in NATO, although they now look to be planning to do so in the face of Russian agression ... just as soon as they can qualify. Several misdirected misconceptions here. Ukraine has been applying...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Equally importantly, what will Russia and China do? Russia does not want Iran to fall to the USA, because it would then have no access to the Arabian Sea through even neutral countries. Nobody can be sure really, how much...
  • Commented on Story time!
    @680 However it's scary, if only because they have picked up Putin's meme, presumabky under orders (?) for a Short Victorious War Even related Wiki article (albeit in Russian version) bothers to mention that connection to "splendid little war" US...
  • Commented on Story time!
    to GT @618 I... um, fail to recognize how we got from there to this, but I guess not many people truly eager to continue on this topic. Speaking of shot-downs, though, apparently somebody made another mistake (quite possibly an...

    If we are going to go with usual motto about two opinions (aka "my opinion and the wrong one"), we aren't going to get anywhere. There's enough space to maneuver and agree on something, the only problem is that current...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Actually, here in the rest of the world we've been pretty certain it was a Russian missile battery going rogue Pardon, I though that's not what guys out there believe. From the same article GT posted: For the first time,...
  • Commented on Story time!
    to Charlie @556 I am only surprised that it took the Dutch prosecutors this long to bring charges. Then it's going to take them a while longer to provide anything of a tangible evidence to the public or at least...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    to Charlie @1212 In my understanding the big issue with the West misunderstanding Middle East is some sort of inability to handle the legal and government system of the place. While the post-Renaissance Europe clearly enough separated Church from Government,...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    For some historical context. As a certain Tsarist-era Russian foreign minister declared, "what this country needs is a short, victorious war!" Though to his defence this phrase is considered to be apocriphal by some sources, and possibly even contrary to...

    bottle disposal Truly laughable in the time of legal planned obsolesce for absolutely everything. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1923434/Video-French-investigation-exposed-Amazon-destroying-unsold-items.html Either current civilization will end consumerism, or it will be other way around. I saw the article in the morning. Later I was looking for...

    You CAN (just) have a power-socket in a bathroom, but it must be double-pole switched ( when you turn it OFF both the live & the return are isolated ) it must be in at the least a splashproof socket...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    Social architecture and the house of tomorrow Probably not the biggest of complaints out there, but for such headline there isn't much "social" described in the house of tomorrow. Fair enough, the house is generally considered private space, and moreover,...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Scanned this report for a minute, but the only attributes that were reliably put on "State-Sponsored Cyber Actors" is a port scanning. Which is a normal activity of any cyberwarfare operations, basically requiring nothing but centralised processing power. As far...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    If you were wondering about real hackers doing real hacker stuff, there's a new story recently on this are. https://twitter.com/shaunwalker7/status/1119678499634204673 The reason why these are happening is that everybody loves to talk about "hacking", but nobody knows what it is...
