Verizon throttles firefighters' data plan during wildfire.

22 August 2018 - 10:59 AM

https://bgr.com/2018...ent-emails-wtf/

 

Firefighters attempted to use a supposedly unlimited data plan to coordinate the response team while combatting a wildfire, only for Verizon to forcefully slow down their data speed. The fire department sent an email, Verizon focused only on offering the department a chance to upgrade their data plan.

 

Pretty scummy of Verizon to take advantage of the net neutrality repeal to throttle firefighters.


"Stephen Miller is an immigration hypocrite"

13 August 2018 - 09:46 AM

Stephen Miller's uncle, David S. Glosser, discusses the hypocrisy of how Miller and Trump are each directly descended from immigrants, yet advocate for policies that, if they were in place a century ago, would have prevented those same ancestors from immigrating. Incidentally, Trump's grandfather in question, Frederick Trump, was deported for failing to fulfill his military service. I guess draft-dodging runs in the family.

"Immigration reform is a complex issue that will require compassion and wisdom to bring the nation to a just solution, but the politicians who have based their political and professional identity on ethnic demonization and exclusion cannot be trusted to do so."

 

This line in particular stands out to me. Too often does it seem that styling oneself as knowledgeable on the "proper" approach to immigration comes at the cost of any and all compassion, as though it were mutually exclusive from wisdom. Stephen Miller lacks both, supporting policies based neither in wisdom nor compassion, but solely in fearmongering.


Infinity War ending

Terrible video quality, but this song really is far too appropriate for the ending.
 

 


[Written] Ojama Links

06 August 2018 - 01:38 PM

After Black's contest to create a Link for an older theme, I've wanted to revise the concept I explored in my submission, to create an engine for Armed Dragon Catapult Cannon, though I believe it works a bit better as a pair. At the very least, I hope that this can render Armed Dragon LV3 obsolete.


Ojamarquis
LIGHT Beast/Link/Effect
2000 / LINK-2 (Bottom-Left, Bottom-Right)
2 “Ojama” monsters
When this card is Link Summoned: You can add 1 “Ojama” Spell Card from your Deck to your hand. You can only use this effect of “Ojamarquis” once per turn. Reduce the Level of all Dragon monsters in your hand by 1. During your Main Phase, you can Normal Summon 1 monster from your hand to your zone this card points to, in addition to your Normal Summon/Set. (You can only gain this effect once per turn.)

 

Ojamajesty
LIGHT Beast/Link/Effect
3000 / LINK-3 (Bottom-Left, Bottom, Bottom-Right)
2+ “Ojama” monsters
When this card is Link Summoned: You can target 1 “Ojama” Spell Card in your GY; add that target to your hand. Reduce the Level of all Dragon monsters in your hand by 1. You can Tribute 1 “Armed Dragon LV5” you control: Special Summon 1 “Armed Dragon LV7” from your hand, Deck, or GY (Ignoring its summoning conditions), but its effects are negated, and it is destroyed during the End Phase. You can only use each effect of “Ojamajesty” once per turn.


PlayStation 4 enters "final phase of its life cycle"

Sony held an Investors Relations conference today, revealing that the PS4 is winding down. The current management plan is expected to run through March 2021, while trying to advance the PlayStation business in the meantime.

 

It's way too early to discuss anything solid, but it's entirely possible that this also means the PlayStation 5 could potentially launch by 2020, so that Sony has something to include in their fiscal report of that year once they get through March 2021. We already know there won't be a hardware reveal at E3, and considering their concerns that sales may of the PS4 may decline, especially with this announcement, they want to maintain momentum until they're ready.
