I don't understand how this works, physically. Either these bozos are starting the car and then skooching over into the passenger or god fuckin forbid back seat, or some psychopath is starting the car, setting it in motion and then jumping?? What the gently caress

Are there any projects out there trying to archive YouTube videos? There's so much genuinely useful information on YouTube, seriously, but YouTube itself isn't a good archiving tool. Users can delete videos, they can close their accounts, videos might get copyright striked etc.

It's weird to imagine in maybe 20 years a lot of the videos we see on YouTube might be gone, if the platform still exists.

I guess this is a general problem with digital media and the websites that host them.

They're wearing a shirt of the "You aren't logged in and can't read this" screen, while waving ten dollars around.

Because they couldn't read a let's play without an account, and that was worth getting that mad about.

Back in the day, there was a high-effort LP of the first Dangan Ronpa game long before any of them were localized. The person doing it was translating as they went and it was the only english-language source for the plot

The game is a murder mystery thing and reading the LP was popular with non-goons. When paywall went up while it was running, there was freakouts in various internet corners and a bunch of stuff like tumblr people sharing accounts that got banned, etc... The picture is a group costume of various characters from the game + one person dressed as the paywall

Any iOS app that hasn't been updated in 3 or so years is dead. Won't run on the recent operating systems.

I keep an old iPad retro so I can run the 32bit apps.

It easier for people to run games I wrote for the TRS-80 and the Apple II (via the Internet Archive) than stuff I designed 6 years ago.

the other obvious argument for a third-party is "you claim to have made an AI that can safely* drive by itself* ... but can't make an AI to tell if there's actually a human in the driver's seat?"

It doesn't even check if there's any weight in the seat. Only that the driver's seatbelt is buckled, and that there's a little bit of resistance to the steering wheel's movements.

We're absolutely going to see "hands-free self-driving" kits sold by third parties along the same lines as those "seat belt alarm stoppers."

You don't even need one, those D-shaped latches for the car door are perfect bottle openers already. Just open the door, crack your stubby, and enjoy.

archive.org does some, but not automatically as far as I know (that is they only archive clips if you request archival, AFAIK).

That one specifically was becasuse there was a goon doing a live-translation LP of some animu game, at a time when no other translations of the game existed.
Lots of kids on tumblr who were into the dangan ronpa fandom wanted to lurk the forums to read it, and probably didn't have their parents' credit card.

My favourite bit is how they're doing everyone a favour by getting rid of those 'paternalistic' benefits and helping everyone out by eliminating all that pesky fairness and accountability in reviews, or employees getting together to discuss things or have opinions on politics.

My favourite bit is how they're doing everyone a favour by getting rid of those 'paternalistic' benefits and helping everyone out by eliminating all that pesky fairness and accountability in reviews, or employees getting together to discuss things or have opinions on politics.

I actually agree with the removal of 360 reviews, they often are just a performative exercise where you don't get much meaningful feedback about what you're doing because you're asking people to remember that time you worked with them 3 months ago on some project. Then you meet with your boss and make up some BS goals for the year that you aren't actually tasked to accomplish.

The banning of political discussion is bad, and I bet the company doesn't have any ERGs. What if you're in a minority group and you find you're getting underpaid, where's your support network? Is it "political" to suggest hiring practices might be racist/affected by bias?

E: basically, it's a willful denial of reality to believe that you can simply isolate politics out of the workplace when issues like systemic racism and sexism are omnipresent and unconscious.

The answer is in the blog post, and it's apparently "talk to the white lady in HR":

quote:

The responsibility for DEI work returns to Andrea, our head of People Ops

(I know that ERGs aren't exactly the same thing as all DEI, but in a company as small as basecamp I'd be shocked if there was any additional resources available for employees).

The 360 thing on it's own isn't a big deal, but it definitely feeds into the whole picture of "we're just going to call the shots and you can all get back to work and stop having opinions".

It's not even them thinking it's infallible, another arm of the UK Post Office knew that it was broken and was manually remotely fudging accounts to try to work around bugs.

This has an anecdote from one of the hearings where the software doesn't enter a transaction in an account, they use an admin account to enter an unmatched entry, gently caress it up and create a $1000 discrepancy, then never tell the postmaster responsible for the account that anything was changed at all
