That's happening all around, but the 'Merica First thing made me smile. The OSSC Pro IP is an product of Iceland! :-) If you read the thread, there is an open source DIY design planned. That will allow you to assemble your own unit in country, but that's imperfect because the components will still be products of cheap labor. It's unavoidable.

Technically, if you want an all-American device, you can't build an OSSC Pro. That IP is "manufactured" in Iceland (that's where marq's brain is) and marqs isn't getting paid a fair wage for the work. From design to manufacturing, nobody is making money.

If you're concerned about global inequality, almost everything that people do contributes. In many cases, there are few or no alternatives. I didn't get the impression the temper tantrum in that thread is really about global inequality, though. It's rooted in globalism and trade grievances. That's a valid complaint, but it's bollocks to go trolling and politicking marqs. Marqs is very resourceful, but he doesn't rule the planet. There's only so much he can do, here.

That discussion in that thread is off topic trolling and shit posting.

This same thing happens over and over again (the hardware forum gets messy and there are viscous personal attacks).

If you haven't yet, go back and read the first couple pages of the RT5x thread:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=67984

Like, really, the Tech threads should just be tech threads. The ideal is to keep an archive of usable information for people to search with those parts of the forum.

I'm not sure that's little... it's certainly the sort of thing that would absolutely piss the everloving shit out of me. :/

They're selfish, and brainwashed by the anti-science messaging being fed to them. We live in an absurd period of history.

What's worse, we have Trump on tape talking to Bob Woodward and saying it's a horrible plague but he's gonna downplay it. IN HIS OWN VOICE!

(Fuck Bob Woodward for not releasing the tape at the time and instead sitting on it several months until his book was in print.)

Though I'm increasingly convinced that conservatives don't worship Donald Trump the man at all, but some kind of totemic God-King archetype. They can just slot in or out whoever their cultural leaders say is the current incarnation. I remember when Republicans were violently worshipful of Bush jr, and as soon as he was no longer useful they dropped him like he was nothing.

No, youtube algorithm, I DON'T want to watch 4-year-old Jordan Peterson videos.

Doesn't matter what I just watched, even if it's a trans left-wing youtuber, the algorithm REALLY REALLY wants to autoplay old Peterson videos.

Somebody with money wants him to come back in a big way.

Doubtful. The former is more often than not ineffectual damage control against the latter. The algorithm only picks out the words "Jordan Peterson".

You don't understand, I wipe cookies from my browser multiple times a day, and I'm not watching videos where Peterson's name comes up at all.

All I do is watch something involving politics with an empty cache and BAM! Autoplay is bringing up years-old Peterson interviews.

If it weren't for the aggressive algorithm, I would think he was still in his Benzo coma.

This, so much. Slowly, but surely, there is a general movement away from text towards video, and it's maddening (and this is coming from a millenial).

Youtube video essays where they flash an entire paragraph of text for all of a second, forcing me to rewind and pause at the exact moment.

Shaders for low res games/emulators that completely destroy the original pixel art into a blobby mess. Just look at this. This is a crime against art.

BIL, that response is perfect. :lol:

I wouldn't have been so annoyed I think had he not insisted that not only does this look good, it should also be the only graphical option in the game:

Why not just go whole hog and AI upscale the entire thing? Let me see those fake textures.

Undoubtedly the same kind of person that stretches 4:3 content to widescreen to not have those awful "black bars" on the screen.

I like that the uploader didn't even try to hide his use of save states.

Seriously, though, a tate game in widescreen? How can anyone play like that?

Quote:
I know it may be a bit off putting for players used to the standard aspect ratio, but it's how I play the game and I think that it (probably?) looks better to people that aren't players of the game and just like to watch these types of videos.

Even worse when that paragraph of text is placed in the bottom of the video where the YouTube interface blocks out all of the text while the video is paused if you watch the video in certain contexts like on a TV.
Tim Rogers can f the right off with that crap XD

Wasn't there some famous review video where all the footage of the game is stretched like that, and then like in the tail end of the review he lambasts the game for looking all stretched in the only video mode option that was able to take up the entire screen. :P

EDIT: Oh yeah, the problem with the game was that you have to manually stretch it all the way to fill up the whole screen :D
Thanks Elixir for keeping the video on the internet

In fairness he wasn't trying to hide it; he just wanted to show off a no miss of that particular pattern and a bunch of other TLB patterns. But, as he's been told previously, there is obviously a difference between learning a pattern using practice mode / savestates, and pulling it off at the end of a 1cc where you'd be feeling way more pressure at that point.

Once upon a time I was a microbio major, and I was having a conversation today where mitochondria came up, but I kept blanking on the correct term and the only word that came into my head for them was "midichlorians." :evil:

Blu-ray.com has been down for a couple of days and that's the primary resource that covers the majority of physical releases. It's only been manageable for awhile that I know what movies I want, but without that resource I'm fearing I'm going to end up with either bare-bones versions or quality on par with Anchor Bay's sorry efforts should they be gone for good.
