They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

That's probably the most apropos. XD 

 

Woooow. You know, I've never really hated Microsoft, but that brings me a lot closer to it...

The whole benefit of dealing with Windows is the open flexibility of the most supported OS on the market. There's no way they don't know exactly what they're doing.

 

Yeah, they're continuing to push and see how much of their 95% dominance of desktops they can maintain while trying to get the iOS and Android's software store markup revenue (all three take the same 30% cut) as well as control over their users and their data. But of course, iOS manages it by the fact that people buying an iDevice are coming into it at a certain level of buy-in, a self-selected minority. Android manages it by keeping a hidden option around to allow installing from other sources to make the store more palatable in concept, while making the store experience really attractively good. (Likewise Google's browser, search, and other services that are already the most popular in their areas, so Google don't have the pressure to lock users in.)

 

And of course, the Play Store and the App Store also both have enough market penetration to be very attractive to developers and get software that users want, something that the Windows Store has never managed.

 

It generally makes a fair bit of sense that Microsoft is struggling with this. They desperately wanted to get in on iOS and Android's model, so they released a perpetual, free-updates OS that they variously offered free to users in the first round, meaning they didn't just opt out of immediate sales, but locked themselves into a model where they wouldn't be getting future ones. I don't know what their deals with OEMs have been like and how much a Dell or an Acer is paying to include Windows preinstalled on their machines (undoubtedly less now for S), but that's their only big revenue stream now and there's a limit to how much they can push before those OEMs start looking for alternatives.

 

I realize that as a commercial, proprietary software company they have to make money somewhere in all of this, but it's an extremely ugly way to do it and just reeks of anti-competitive behavior and trying yet again to leverage their dominance over the whole desktop software industry.

A nice breakdown:
 
https://www.youtube....h?v=mwZJPrgVncU
 
So, everything that differentiates Windows 10 S is meant to lock users into MS's revenue streams. You can't install apps from outside the Windows Store. You can't install an alternate web browser, because Microsoft doesn't allow competing browsers in the store anymore, unless they use Edge's rendering and JavaScript "standards" (so Google could write a Chrome for the Store again, but it'd be Edge in a hat.) You can't change the default search engine from Bing.
 
Everywhere it's being targeted right now, there's the option of a free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro (not Home, incidentally.) If you buy an MS Surface or you're an educator buying a case of cheap classroom laptops, you get a free upgrade. But the upgrade itself without a deal is $50.
 
They're billing it as a "security" deal, but I'm getting used to the idea that literally whenever Microsoft refers to "security" measures, the "security" means "anti-competition". 
 
The fact that the upgrade has a price tag on it means that it's definitely not going to be free in all cases in the future. It's going to be the Windows 10 that comes pre-installed on low-end devices, the $200 laptops and tablets at Walmart. So pay your $50, or the only software you ever install to that device will be the software Microsoft gets a cut of, and Microsoft alone gets to mine all your browsing data. Since 90% of users don't care, they're going to go for the second option. Not that it matters, MS wins either way, and it's just subtle enough they might get away with it unlike their similar attempt with Windows RT during 8, when they instead had confused buyers returning RT machines in buckets because they wouldn't run their programs. 
 
I like the observation that in the real world, S means "special" or "sport". Microsoft hasn't said it stands for anything in particular, but the implication is "secure". Sort of like calling it GT but the GT stands for Gimped Trash.


Wow. Get hugged, Microsoft!

I hope businesses are smart enough not to buy into this shit because I always buy used business grade laptops.

No, it's different. The Creators Update is just a codename-like brand for one of the big semiannual system updates. Windows 10's cycle is what would be called a semi-rolling update cycle in the Linux world - there are small, iterative updates being rolled out consistently, but also big, staged updates that will tend to contain any big changes to how the system operates. These are roughly equivalent to macOS (or Ubuntu or anything else) release versions, so CU would be like Windows 10.4.

 

CU is getting flak for being even less privacy-friendly than prior versions of Windows. I find the distinction difficult to perceive myself. It's already rolled out if your updating on the main update track. 

 

Windows 10 S is another license version of Windows, like the usual Home edition that ships with PCs and the Pro that's meant for enterprise applications and ships with some high-end machines. As the Starter equivalent, it's a less permissive version of the system than Home, so it goes S -> Home -> Pro. But you can't upgrade S to Home, only to Pro for the full $50 that upgrade costs.

 

What's ugly about it is 1) the nature of the restrictions and 2) that they're trying to bill it as a security and performance deal, which it's just not; it's a way for MS to stop giving away Windows for free again, while still reaping most of the benefits of doing so. 

 

It has no effect on current Windows systems - if you already have a license, you're fine. I don't know if it's even possible to downgrade an install or license to S (like you might want to if it was a security and performance thing, which it isn't.)

 

Edit:

 

Wow. Get hugged, Microsoft!


I hope businesses are smart enough not to buy into this shit because I always buy used business grade laptops.

That's going to be the most frustrating thing, people in businesses or schools stuck with it because their institution decided to run S, because they think it's more secure and is also cheaper, and then their users are unable to do basic things because their machines are so painfully locked down.

 

 

 

 

Edit a second time, unrelated: I cannot get over how amazing the GNOME desktop team really are. I had a fiddly UX question about the file manager - remember ages ago when I mentioned that thing about the Open With menu? I dropped in this morning (UK time) to ask about it, since nothing was mentioned in the design roadmap page for the application. I got an explanation, I had one of the lead design heads talking to me about it, he brought in another designer who'd worked on it specifically, and the second guy laid out the plan for how it was going to be addressed. In the process, they asked for feedback and a couple of other people chimed in, so we just had a discussion about how the feature was used and things. I just never had any idea software developers could be this friendly and open.

Yeah, that feeling that, "wow, this software really is designed by human beings" just keeps taking me by surprise. It's really cool. = ] Like, there's a new "Usage" app that's like - on Android, if you go to Settings and then hit Apps, and you get an overhead view of 1) what's running, but also 2) memory and storage usage by individual apps, etc., anyone ever looked at that? Usage is like a cross between that and the new Task Manager that was introduced in Windows 10. Not the most exciting thing in principle - hard to explain why I'm excited about such a thing beyond that, considering it's a weird little amenity no one regularly sees - but it's something that appeals enough to my design sensibilities enough to get me a little hype. At any rate, something I was looking forward to seeing it based on the design whiteboard.

 

But then I happened to be around in the IRC when a couple of people were brainstorming about the design for the app's icon, and one of them was proposing sketches - just seeing that in action was really cool. = D It makes me really psyched to see this system and project continue to evolve. And maybe even sometimes be able to give some useful input!

I assume it was just really good timing that I asked a question about something that folks were working on somewhere at the time. Alternatively, I brought it up and someone decided that was a good thing to work on today. Either way, it seemed like an impressive turnaround on that mockup. XD I don't know when it'll be implemented or anything like that, but damn.

Sounds like fun! I have to admit I've never played with a lot of vintage OSes, but it's always interesting to see. (And usually, if I'm playing with an OS of any kind, it's just been in a VM, not running as a hardware install.) So, yeah, sounds like fun, and always interested to see your results!

Well just in the past couple of days I went to crazy extremes, installing both the oldest (Windows 98) and newest (Windows 10) OSes NetBurst can handle on a pair of Dell OptiPlexes!

 

98 took a few tries to get working but it's currently stable, and Windows 10 is mostly stable...except it crashes with a NMI HARDWARE VIOLATION whenever you shut the computer down. Wonder if maybe the "literally pulled out of a hugging junk box" graphics card is bad. It didn't LOOK bad after I cleaned it, and I do get video through the DVI ports on the card, but something isn't right here. Maybe I need to install a shitload of Windows 10 updates...and the 98 machine could use all of the updates released for 98 too, though I dunno how I'd set up a batch of every Windows update for quick(er) installing.

Ha, awesome. What vintage are the OptiPlexes? (That's a long-running line, and still running.)

 

The 98 machine is an OptiPlex GX260 (circa 2003, Pentium 4 "Northwood" 2.8GHz, 1GB RAM configured in msconfig to 512MB), the Win10 machine is an OptiPlex GX620 (circa late 2005/early 2006, Pentium D "Presler" 3.4GHz, 4GB RAM).

 

Had to upgrade the GX620 from its original "Prescott" Pentium 4 to run Win10 64-bit but it runs it surprisingly well!

Unless you are kaiju-sized, a shinkansen is not a sex toy.

Ha, awesome. That's absolutely lovely. = ] 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?
