    Also I like how it predicted the death of Paul Walker.

    Russian Offensive Campaign Assessment, July 30

    • Russian forces conducted ground assaults around Bakhmut and the environs of Donetsk City as well as southwest of Izyum. One assault east of Bakhmut made limited gains.
    • Russian forces did not conduct ground assaults near Siversk again, suggesting that they are deprioritizing operations in that area.
    • Satellite imagery showed Russian reinforcements concentrated near the Ukrainian border on the ground line of communication (GLOC) leading toward Izyum.
    • Ukrainian forces disrupted a Russian ground assault in Kherson Oblast with preemptive artillery strikes.
    • Ukrainian officials claim that damage to the railway bridge across the Dnipro near Kherson renders Russian forces unable to resupply their positions on the west bank of the river by rail.

    You don't use ShadowPlay?

    the only reason companies develop and offer such products is to make a profit. Otherwise, what would be the point of going into business?

    This question makes sense only in the current framework. Of course without profit motive businesses would not exist (as we know them today).

    The alternative to production for profit is production for use. That is to produce based on how much is required and then utilize the goods instead of making them solely in hope of selling them to others.
