Using this argument to dismiss any analysis of art or media is pretty fucking boring though.

In my experience an incompetent person attempting to be a dictator is a lot more dangerous.

I dunno I love Disco Elysium but that company can fuck right off. They wrestled away the IP from the original creators and the sequel was certain to be a confused hack job with no sense of what made the original so special. The game is definitely worth playing but it's hard to advocate giving them any money when none of it goes to the artists who made it :\

They "supported" a bill that they immediately circumvented, yeah. They had no interest in protecting right to repair they just wanted the PR. It should surprise no one that they're opposed to actual bills that force them to alter their business practices.

It's the API itself, it's a little more complicated than just checking if you have a chromium browser. What it's looking for is special tokens generated by google within chromium browsers. Google is selling this idea as a way to help verify identity of the end user and thus block bots. That's concerning, because it suggests that google will have some verification method likely involving ID and generate a unique token with that info associated with it. This is a real concern for web privacy for like a million reasons, obviously, and ideally should not be adopted by anyone. If other tech gatekeepers adopt it (and they would love to) it will block giant swathes of the internet from people refusing to use the tech and further googles monopoly over general consumer browser use. Now, could the token be fudged? Possibly. But it will take time to figure out.

I play the Ghostbusters theme at every bar within WiFi range (4 If I stand on the right corner) using the TouchTunes app on my phone about once a month. I stand there on the corner and queue it up 4 times at each bar and pay extra so that it cannot be skipped. I don't precisely know what reactions it gets out of the crowd. For all I know the bartenders are on to me and just unplug the speakers for the duration of the 4 songs. But in my mind, I imagine it really annoys people. Not sure why I do it.

Edit: The thing I like to imagine most is somebody getting fed up, leaving, walking down the block to another bar and hearing it before even getting in the door. Delicious.

Wow well I guess I'll eat crow. I never thought that was possible to automate but given the use of LLMs I guess it is... Excited to see how it turns out

I have come to regard the "everyone so sensitive today" discourse as literal background chatter because for as long as I can remember people have been saying this. "Ah you could never get away with that today" like yes society does seem to be growing and changing don't it and the sky is up there yet, and the rock's still hard.

There will never be a tool to convert Unity projects to Unreal. However there are already several to convert Unity to Godot, because both use C#

Edit: And as a dev that has used both, I just converted my project to Godot.

Edit again: It actually may be possible or at least be made easier using LLMs to convert to Unreal

It's too fucking funny that people are willing to post classified military specs on aircraft just to bitch about a game.
