DOJ and over a dozen states (plus puerto rico!) filed a 173 page complaint for United States v. Google LLC with over a hundred pages of evidence of mass scale violation of basically every antitrust law on the books, including proof of a secret and extremely illegal advertising bidding agreement between Google and Facebook and proof that AMP exists solely to give Google control over content on the internet. plaintiffs made 96 requests of the court, most of which start with "order Google to"

if google got ma bell’ed would alphabet just instantly collapse?

yeah but you won’t see the real poo poo unless the DOJ puts in the proper amount of effort needed to ensure that Google becomes a dozen different companies with completely distinct and separated staffs, executives, financials, assets, infrastructure, and shares. right now each subsidiary of alphabet that does Google stuff is all just GOOG and they all share an org iirc. forcibly break them up properly and now there’s a mad scramble for resources that’d break goog’s absurdly widespread net into pieces

killing google for real isn’t an option in a modern hyper connected capitalist society so I’m expecting the most bizarre non-resolution to this

what if instead of federation you used blockchain for identity management?

you could have millions in investment and never have to deliver even a conceptual prototype

you know I consider myself a fairly competent (lol) programmer but I don't even know where to begin on cranking out a conceptual prototype for anything blockchain

do people just do like `npm install libblockchain` and bolt on their awful ideas or something? I'm assuming this isn't the kind of thing every idiot attempts to reimplement and instead just borrows etherium's implementation from one of the various garbo modern programming framework package managers or whatever

Have you ever had to switch servers? Like going through the freenode/libera split.

as someone who helped move a channel in the freenode/libera split it was pretty painless, everyone moved over in the first 48 hours and after that the new freenode owner got all pissy about the exodus and started loving with the chanserv database to take ownership of any channel that mentioned libera in its topic so that sealed the deal for anyone who didn't move over early on

the most annoying part was getting a hold of the lowtaxian absentee site owner who runs a site our channel is vaguely affiliated with so he could switch the IRC link in the header

i dont understand this post either

a large number of vtubers act like children and have anime avatars that look like children and are incessantly risqué in their behaviour but are described as not being children in their fictional biographies and it’s insanely weird. the rest are mercifully just visual shitposters using an anime in their stream instead of a facecam

ozzy sucks the real hero of black sabbath was tony iommi

dude worked in a factory or something right. well one day he was priming a hog mill or whatever loving industrial mechanism and it whanged off two of his fingertips. so he was trying to play rock music and having half his fretting hand cut off was kind of a bummer, right. anyways he was like "welp" and sewed a couple of leather nub thimble things for his capitalism-mangled nubs and started trying to play again. he was close but not quite there, so he experimented by loosening the strings on his guitar so they were easier to fret with his hacked up robot hand. it worked and that is why we got black sabbath and all their stuff is down at like C# down from standard E and he invented like 17 genres of doom and death metal becaus he got hosed up in that factory

geezer butler owns too, dude helped pioneer the idea of using electric bass not only as a rhythm section in rock music but also doing it in the same manner and register of a standard guitar with licks and all that. the guitar solo in war pigs is also a bass extravaganza and it all works together

bill ward is a good drummer and almost died a few times because he liked it when the band played pranks on him and lit his beard on fire and poo poo

:actually: a graser is a gamma-ray laser. we don't know how to make one of those either though so whatever

technically we *do* but it involves detonating a nuclear bomb so it's never been tested. bomb pumped lasers are one of the most :stonkhat: weapons

a gamma ray laser would be fascinating from a functional point of view because throwing thousands of joules of gamma rays is kill whoever it hits dead of radiation poisoning about as fast as thousands of joules of gamma ray laser pulses will

pretty sure you're thinking of the x-ray lasers they were going to use as part of SDI. we did in fact test those cuz it's not like ronnie had any reservations about nuclear testing, they just didn't fuckin' work lol

there's a paper from the late 70s on the construction of bomb-pumped grasers but the conclusion is "there's no point in building one because the output efficiency is garbage and despite it being a much smaller lasing device than an x-ray laser you still need to strap it to a nuclear loving bomb" so none were ever built

eh non pro mtg isnt really gambling unless you specifically start putting money down on matches which nobody does that ive seen

it's a different type of problem that can get out of hand tho. nobody should be skipping rent to buy planeswalkers or w/e

in the early mtg rules there were ante rules on some cards that forced you to bet other cards in order to play them. then they realized that if anyone did that at tournaments it'd be hilariously illegal so they made it an unofficial variant format instead of a core rule
