  • After four years in development the adventure game Malasombra has been announced - for the NES.  (Vintage is the New Old)

    Or your preferred emulator, I guess.  There must be a good number of working NESes still out there, though the oldest working console I own is a Nintendo 64.


  • You can finally edit your tweets.  (WCCFTech)

    All you have to do is pay Twitter five bucks a month.

    I can't blame them for doing this seeing as how I suggested it as the only feature anyone would be willing to pay for.  But nor am I going to pay them one thin dime unless and until Elon Musk takes them over and purges their ranks with fire and sword.


  • Nvidia's RTX 4060 Ti is expected to match the RTX 3080 in performance.  (WCCFTech)

    Leaked numbers for the raw hardware performance (in TFLOPs) put it slightly ahead, and synthetic benchmarks slightly behind.

    That's not bad at all if pricing and availability are solid.  We shall see.


Hololive Music Video of the Day



This was something of a surprise.  I knew she had a song cover coming up, taken from the Japanese animated film Belle, and that it had an animated video to go with it.  But I haven't seen Belle and didn't know the song and I had forgotten what I had seen from the animator - Alice Magic - in the past.

The animation is the work of a single person.  Took five months.

The chorus is a who's who of the top singing talents in Hololive.

They knocked this one out of the park.

1 I'm a wild eye paranoid.

Maybe the investigation is correct.

Maybe it is Russian disinfo.

Maybe a US government hacking operation.

Maybe a US hacking operation that is not government related.

Maybe the US federal government's absolutely insane plan to roll out government wide 'zero trust' is involved, and extremely important to the motivation of this.

It may be that the Democrats have an ulterior motivation for the 'security push', and are expecting the push to cover up previous misdoings?  Like, say, the apparent Democrat compromise of that system that 'randomly' assigns federal judges to cases.

2 "after tricking employees into handing over their corporate login credentials and two-factor codes from SMS phishing messages that purported to come from Twilio’s IT department."

See, if the employees can access your secure stuff, it's not secure.  And if the employees are dumb enough to fall for a phishing email, you're definitely using the wrong service.

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