  1. When I press the right trigger on my game controller, my system's audio crashes. Probably the weirdest bug I've seen yet -- anyone feel like helping?

    due to the looming pandemic forcing everyone to stay inside, I've recently decided to get back into video games. I did a fresh install of windows 10 the other day, and tried to play a few games with my controller. I found that whenever I press the right trigger on my controller, my computer's audio cuts out system-wide immediately and does not come back on until I restart.

    The controller is a wired Afterglow for Xbox 360 PL-3702.

    Windows 10, version 1903.

    I see two audio devices under Sound, Video and Game Controllers in Device Manager: a AMD High Definition Audio Device and a Realtek Audio device.

    I've tried updating drivers for my controller and audio controllers.

    I've reproduced the issue and collected logs of it following the steps here. If you know how to read these I'd be happy to send you the trace.

    Now, I've tried to look at the trace of this in both Windows Performance Analyzer and Windows Media eXperience Analyzer to try and get a better sense of what's causing this. I see a pretty clear event where a bunch of stuff shows up in the visualizer, but I don't know what any of the stack traces that show up mean. This did not occur on my previous install of Windows on the same computer so I suspect it's related to something with some new Windows "gaming" feature I didn't have before.

    I'm really at a loss as to where to go from here. It's both perfectly clear and completely mystifying. Any ideas?

    This isn't actually true. Youth turnout is up. I've personally seen thousands of college students wait 3 hours in line to register to vote all day on Tuesday. It's just that older folks are turning out in droves, and it's making the youth vote a smaller percent of the overall vote.

    maybe he thinks Bernie would be difficult to face and is trying to get the rest of the Dem establishment to attack Bernie and nominate someone weaker instead.

    I'm not an astronomer, so I don't know for sure. From what I have seen, the sheer number of satellites and where they are in orbit makes them exceptionally visible if they cross the path of an earth based telescope. If a telescope is doing some sort of long exposure, that's not going to be something you can just edit out.

    How are you going to address the concern of "you've put too many satellites into space" after the fact? It is not a simple task to remove them from space if it turns out to be a huge mistake.

    I think the"move fast and break things" philosophy can be extremely effective in many contexts. I don't think it works for space, when the consequences of failure are significant and affect everyone regardless of if they have asked to be included in the project (which most people have not). SpaceX should address the concerns of scientists well before ANY satellite is put into orbit.

    if you're referring to something like SpaceX's Skylink, I really think we shouldn't go that route. It's proven extremely destructive to the night sky

    I haven't gone through it closely yet but it seems to be a pretty solid plan. I like the emphasis on infrastructure building -- current isps have been absolutely fucking over rural communities & businesses.
