  • That's more like fusilli or rotini.

  • iMac 'n Cheese
  • Thanks. I tried asking Bing to add a real mouse eating the cheese mouse, but I guess that's too much for Bing!

  • Am I the only one who doesn't really care about graphics?
  • Within the range, I would give: SNES: 10/10 (my favourite game graphics of all time. e.g. FF6) N64:6/10 (1st party games have good art direction) PS1: 5/10 (could be lower, but saved by games with pre-rendered backgrounds) PS2: 7/10 (some outstanding graphics such as Shadow of the Colossus)

  • Am I the only one who doesn't really care about graphics?
  • Not always. Did you know that Final Fantasy VI had a mobile version with much higher resolution graphics? SquareEnix took it down and released the pixel remaster instead, which matches the original low-resolution graphics closely.

    That's just one of the many examples when "better graphics" isn't always better.

  • Am I the only one who doesn't really care about graphics?
  • Somewhere between 8-bit and XB360 would be PS1.

    I dislike PS1 graphics. Too many games use 3D graphics for no reason, and they used dark and muted colours to be "realistic".

    N64 games are usually more colourful and more pleasing, even though they lack texture.

    XB360 had enough power to finally show 3D without feeling "trying too hard".

  • Am I the only one who doesn't really care about graphics?
  • I care about art direction. Graphical capability can give digital artists more freedom especially for photorealistic styles. But few games actually make good use of such artistic freedom.

    My favourite 3D game graphics is Super Mario Galaxy. Other than that I mostly prefer game graphics from 16-bit consoles.

  • What are the most evil media corporations in the world?
  • CCTV. Ironic China Central Television has the same acronym as closed-circuit TV.

  • 1st rule of buddy system
  • My Nokia phone from 2 decades ago had more pixels.

  • Meta Now Sells Quest 3 Refurbished For $450
  • I might buy one if Quest is no longer owned by Meta.

    I am not going to pay that zucker.

  • Prompt: A fantastical photo featuring a unique and whimsical hybrid creature. The creature has the head of a fluffy pomeranian, with bright, curious eyes and a playful expression. It has the powerful wings of an eagle, spread wide and ready to soar. The creature's tail is that of a sleek and agile cat, gracefully curling behind it. The overall atmosphere of the image is enchanting and surreal, with a hint of magical realism., photo (Ideogram)

    Firefox tips and tricks for gamers | The Mozilla Blog

    Once my work day is over and my baby is asleep, there’s nothing I love more than settling in with my weighted blanket, grabbing some pillows, and playing video games. I don’t get to play video games as much as I’d like to anymore, so I need every tool at my disposal working for me to make sure I can maximize my time. I reached out to my fellow gamers here at Mozilla, and here’s how we use Firefox to help us game.

    What is a tankie?

    Tankie is a pejorative label generally applied to authoritarian communists, especially those who support acts of repression by such regimes or their allies. More specifically, the term has been applied to those who express support for one-party Marxist–Leninist socialist republics, whether contemporary or historical.

    Mozilla Corporation Org Changes to Accelerate our Path to the Future | The Mozilla Blog

    Over the past few months, we’ve been accelerating our ability to execute outstandingly, make faster decisions, and realize our multi-product ambitions. To help facilitate this, I’m excited to announce an organizational change within the product team. This change will enable us to better develop and scale products at different stages of development and maturity.

    Today, we have multiple groups across various teams working on new ideas and emerging products: Fakespot, PXI, Mozilla Social, and the Innovation Ecosystems team, plus some newer emerging pods around new product design sprints and ideation. To simplify and accelerate this work, we are consolidating our emerging and seed product portfolios under a single umbrella, led by Adam Fishman, as our SVP of New Products, reporting directly to me.

    By setting up Firefox as a standalone product organization, we will also be able to bring more focus to our continual efforts to improve the Firefox experience for everyone who uses it. Firefox is already a leader in foundational qualities like speed and privacy, and now we will be able to faster in developing solutions that bring more useful tools and more joyful experience to our users. Our recent announcement of new Firefox features is just the start, as we close in on Firefox’s 20th birthday in November.

    I am really excited about these changes as they help us accelerate our path to a strong, multi-product future as we simultaneously expand on our investment in our flagship core product, Firefox.
