Go Fuck Yourself Russian Warship Edition

Top Story

  • Weekends are Question and Answer time, when I'm not working because the blockchain has blown up again, or stuck on a mobile link with a two second ping time, or tied up moving house, or whatever is scheduled for next week that I don't want to think about.

    Drop your questions in the comments today and if I don't get crushed by a meteorite I will endeavour to answer them tomorrow.


  • Internet is back on.

    It was the cable between the modem and the wall socket.

    How exactly that got fried by the lightning strike when nothing else was affected I do not know.  Maybe they have optoisolators at both ends to protect against this sort of thing.

    First thing I watched was a Minecraft stream with Pina Pengin of Prism Project, possibly the single nicest vtuber in the world, which got gatecrashed by Pipkin Pippa of Phase Connect who has a standing invitation to join Nick Rekieta's livestream if that gives you any indication.


  • Wait, HoloEN is having an unarchived off-collab?!  Amelia, Ina, Mumei, Fauna, and Kronii are all in the same room.  You can tell by the acoustics - they're terrible.  Right now they're singing the guitar solo from Bohemian Rhapsody, as you are required to by law in any karaoke session involving more than three people.


  • The US and allies including Taiwan have announced broad export restrictions of technology to Russia.  (Ars Technica)

    Does that mean video card prices will finally come down?


  • China's supreme court has ruled that fundraising via crypto tokens is a crime punishable by ten years in prison.  (The Star)

    Does that mean video card prices will finally come down?


  • Nvidia is investigating an attack that took down parts of its internal network for two days.  (Bleeping Computer)

    Well, fuck.

    Nvidia says that its "business and commercial activities continue uninterrupted" - which means that the attack was aimed at its R&D.

1 I didn't catch the stream but Pippa has become my favorite non-hololive vtuber. IDK what she and Rekieta would talk about but I imagine it would be a fun crossover between two worlds, in a way.

2 The unarchived collab explains why Amelia was traveling the other day.  It also proves that Ina is based in North America, and probably on the West Coast.

3 I think Amelia is looking for a new place, and if four other HoloEN members live close enough to join her for an impromptu session, it explains why she is looking wherever she is.

4 PM: ace.mu.nu is back to cycling reloads on my iPad. I'm not having that problem here.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
