According to Robert Duncan McNeal, Larcarno gave the impression of being a good guy who made a mistake when in reality deep down he was a bad guy, whereas Paris was the other way around.

The Verge reported that CEO Sundar Pichai defended the layoffs and claimed that workers sometimes reach out to express gratitude for the cuts. “And I just want to clarify that, through these changes, people feel it on the ground and sometimes people write back and say, ‘Thank you for simplifying.’ Sometimes we have a complicated, duplicative structure,” he said, per the Verge.

Chalmers: People send thank you’s for lay offs?

Pichai: Yes.

Chalmers: May I see one?

Pichai: No.

This popped up over the weekend on my work PC. It was an emergency and I absolutely needed to get to my desktop ASAP.

Nope. Full screen advertisement for Windows 11 demanding my immediate and undivided attention. Blocking all other functions, commands, and inputs. I must interact with this ad or else I cannot use my computer.

Fuck. That.

I am never installing Windows 11. I am never buying another Microsoft operating system. Specifically because of this sort of heavy-handed dark patterned bullshit. Not to mention the fact that Windows 10 is dog shit.

The idea of checks and balances on the exercise of government powers extends to even the state/federal relationship.

I think we should have a rule that says if a LLM company invokes fair use on the training inputs then the outputs are public domain.

Yeah, the headline makes it sound like they had cameras in the toilets or something.

tl;dr: The users’ comments say that a certain ISP is pirate-friendly. Studios want to use the comments against the ISP (not the users).

I just thought “pirate-friendly” was concise.

I was framed for assassinating a politician and sent to Rura Penthe. Gowron got me $5,000!

It’s an extraordinary example of Hodgkin’s Law of parallel planetary development that the Ferengi symbol for “bars of gold pressed latinum” is also the ancient Earth dollar sign.

What does this mean for shows and movies that I purchased? Will they have ads unless I pony up? If I cancel Prime will I lose access to them?

Alternate future Admiral Janeway doesn’t qualify.

Prime timeline Admiral Janeway might qualify if only because we never see her do anything.

Looks like I’m cancelling.

It’s all part of the Prime package. I signed up because they had the new Star Trek shows.

Unfortunately, the Goran'Agar Rehabilitation Clinic actually has a very low success rate (i.postimg.cc)

[Image transcription: A “Doctor’s hate him” style meme titled “The Founders HATE Him” about Goran’Agar. The side text reads “He beat his ketracel-white addiction in less than 35 days using this simple trick. FIND OUT HOW”]

The fact that he didn’t realize he’s not addicted until stranded suggests that few Jem’hadar ever personally experience withdrawal. They receive regular doses and then die in combat, so it rarely comes up. Almost everything they know about the effect of white withdrawal is received knowledge.

If it weren’t canon that they need white to survive, then my headcanon would be that that they could totally survive without it and they’ve just been lied to all along. Like that episode of TNG.

The spork is the cement of our civilization, with which we escape from hunger, using IFIC as our guide: Infinite foods in infinite combinations.

Which is a real thing in canon. Bajor’s application was put in jeopardy when they briefly reinstated a caste system, which violated Federation equality rules.

Wouldn’t that technically be a French thing?

His scene with Worf where he reveals that he’s Alexander from the future is one if the greatest scenes in ALL Trek.
