So I just crawled out from under my rock and saw the Microsoft Flight Simulator trailers and I'm wondering: can we get this world scale game map technology for a driving game next?

I'm loving this series "Maddie Goes Electric" from Fully Charged. It's nice to have a show talking about cars that's full of excitement and whimsy for a change.

In tech, 'smart' refers to any device that stops working when the company that manufactures it goes out of business, regardless of what it does.

Oh wow, can't believe I'm finally about to finish this Persona 5 run!

@padraic_padraic The two underlying technologies that really cemented my understanding were Namespaces and Capabilities. I found LXC to be a better learning tool than docker since it exposes more of the inner workings than docker which is relatively opaque.

Stephane Graber's (LXC/LXD project lead) blog was a very useful and in-depth resource for me - stgraber.org

@Sylvhem It looks like it was accepted as a "dataset" paper, which could have less rigorous peer review than a "full" paper. 17 datasets were submitted in 2019, and 9 were accepted.

it's weird to see jokes on twitter that I first saw on mastadon

Oooooo apparently MTG Arena Tool lets you share your drafts now! That's very neat! mtgatool.com/draft/zhedyt

people were talking about the millennium bug recently, well it turns out a lot of the fixes just delayed the problem to 2020

"Programmers wanting to avoid the Y2K bug had two broad options: entirely rewrite their code, or adopt a quick fix called “windowing”, which would treat all dates from 00 to 20, as from the 2000s, rather than the 1900s. An estimated 80 per cent of computers fixed in 1999 used the quicker, cheaper option."

"Those systems that used the quick fix have now reached the end of that window, and have rolled back to 1920. Utility company bills have reportedly been produced with the erroneous date 1920, while tens of thousands of parking meters in New York City have declined credit card transactions because of the date glitch."

Magic: The Gathering 

My new years resolution is kinda silly, but what I want to do is run a tabletop rpg adventure module. Get some social interaction while exercising my imagination muscles - two things that have really suffered since getting out of school.

@staticsafe@mastodon.zombocloud.com I made the same switch last week. Pretty happy with it so far!
