    I mean, I suppose it might be legit. They don't actually seem to be advertising themselves that celebrity comedians will be at the event. Only media reports through anonymous cutouts are making such claims. So when people show up and...
  • Commented on A Wonky Experience
    Looks like one more in a string of cons. https://www.thenational.scot/news/24244303.nathan-fielder-distances-la-recreation-glasgows-wonka/ 18 days out, and the only visible promotional material is an eventbrite site to buy tickets, and "a spokesperson for the event" says so...
  • Commented on A Wonky Experience
    FWIW, I found some humor in the law of small numbers. Imagine the space of nested ven-diagrams of interest here... We all have our own corners I don't have to know about increased public transit, but the free or deeply...

    And thus the scam cycle is complete. Monorail Music's ebay pictures did look similar to the photos from the event, but not the same. Both heavily influenced by an image over a year old. This etsy image was the earliest...

    Happy to help!...
  • Commented on A Wonky Experience
    Yeah you would definitely need to build a delay in to be safe. Some pictures will take longer than others (and whatever background processes that are running at the time will affect it) Most modern applications can be completely driven...

    You could probably get another app that can record the keystrokes and mouse events that you use to process one photo and select the next. Then have it replay the inputs X number of times...

    It might depend on version number, but it looks like Affinity can do batch processing https://affinity.help/photo/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/Macros_Batch/batchjobs.html&title=Batch%20jobs...

    Off-off topic- that "pulsetasmania.com.au" article is meant to be satire, no? Sharing this image from the Booking page of a wonky experience, because I don't think many have seen it: https://web.archive.org/web/20240225010300/https://willyschocolateexperience.com/main-img/booking-hero.png I was amused that one of the prompts apparently...

    While DMT would work better and probably be safer... It seems like a missed opportunity for "Spice" https://www.dea.gov/factsheets/spice-k2-synthetic-marijuana...

    800 years ago, I wouldn't know.. 80 years ago, I could maybe work it out with some contemporary documentation 8 years ago, bitmaps could be recreated with some paints and i's and o's 8 days ago, I can't even tell...

    Adding PCP to semi-(sweet-)hallucinated fully immersive experiences might just be the missing link! Enhance your imagination! *Offer varies by region and international criminal law treaties...

    I wonder if there are any laws that prevent a judge from using ChatGPT to write the decision... Codes of ethics, sure, but would it be illegal?...

    I'm not saying it's not scammy. But the whole thing does have vague hints of someone being conned by MRAs and AI peddlers...

    I could see that maybe he thought it really would work, but he had to start selling tickets to fund the hiring of those expensive projectors. By the time it became abundantly clear that the AI-generated code was no where...

    Since Cory Doctorow has already been mentioned here, and "tapeworm economics" recently on another post, I am reminded of this article by him from 2010. https://locusmag.com/2010/05/cory-doctorow-persistence-pays-parasites/ "All complex ecosystems have parasites." Although there were no homophones or homoglyphs in the...
  • Commented on Same bullshit, new tin
    Haha, in my searching I did come across this blog post by a vacuum instrument manufacturer https://info.teledyne-hi.com/blog/can-smartphones-actually-measure-pressure Of course don't use a MEMS oscillator for a system clock if you work "near evaporating liquified gasses such as helium" - it...
  • Commented on Same bullshit, new tin
    No, really! MEMS barometers are accurate and cheap https://cliffmass.blogspot.com/2022/05/pressure-data-from-smartphones-could.html None of my phone's have one, but I won't be surprised if my next one does. Fun fact, android apps require no permissions or notifications to grab pressure data....

    Huh, I guess phones now come with barometric sensors too!...

    FCC requires ±3 meter accuracy on the z-access for most locations. The implementation details seem to be trade secrets, but I'd guess that it includes known WiFi positions on top of GPS and 4g triangulation...
