    Good. They make Apple look like an asshole but don't mention how a lot of people just don't want to give them data.

    This will mean multi-touch attribution, even over a shorter horizon, will not be possible.

    I went in with zero expectations and was still disappointed. I get removing Frank was a major hit to the story but there is so much wrong with the story that has nothing to do with Frank.

    They might make it canon again with the 3 Jokers though. The "three" are probably from older canons. Happened with Superman in this canon.

    I remember the whole story being told in 3rd person, so it’s absolute truth. I might be wrong though, feel free to correct me!

    The Joker already has a definitive origin story, though. I remember it being referenced quite a bit on the leading comics too.

    They were certainly fun to read but I think it drove off a lot of very skilled people from Linux kernel development, not to mention the potential ripple effect.

    By ripple effect, I mean this, from a outsider perspective: Linux is seen the symbol of FOSS development for people who aren't used to open-source, so if the leader of the Linux yells at people when they make a mistake, why shouldn't the leaders of lesser(smaller?) projects? And why should I volunteer if I'm getting yelled at?

    I know this isn't how it is, but it could happen.
    The same end result of keeping bad code away could be achieved by denying it strongly, but politely and wouldn't drive away developers. To be clear, I'm not blaming Linus for this, I know he only yells at people who should know better, but that doesn't matter if you're getting yelled at.

    I'm learning C++ right now and I absolutely hate unnecessary (from a technical perspective) white space.
    I try to make it readable against my urges but one day I might break down and put the whole code on a single line.

    For example, I'd never write

    ++i;
    std::cout << *i;
    

    rather than std::cout << *i++;

    Here's my 'desktop', it's fairly boring and not much to look at. https://vgy.me/rTgwMp.png

    I'm currently using a (god awful) FX 8350@4.6GHz, GTX 1060, some budget 970 motherboard that barely holds the 4.6GHz clock, and some very good 16GB DDR3 (2666MHz CL12 box spec) which I can't take advantage of because of the FX and it's terrible IMC.

    I'm looking into buying a R5 2600, MSI X370 Gaming Plus (it's the cheapest X370 board in my country, cheaper than even B450 boards) and 16GB DDR4.

    There's also the option of buying a Huanan X79/E5-1650 v2 combo but AliExpress takes long to arrive and I've heard mixed things about the Huanan board, I also don't want to lock myself into a dead platform.

    I agree with this. Cosmetic-only lootboxes doesn't affect you at all, and gives free content.

    Honestly, the only way to keep games at 60$ with ever-increasing costs because games get bigger and bigger was some kind of extra revenue system. Season Pass is this but it splits the playerbase.

    I'd vastly prefer having cosmetic lootboxes and free content rather than Season Pass/Games costing 100$+

    If you care only and only about file storage(as in, no contacts, calendar etc.) I found Seafile to better than Nextcloud.

    It's faster and uses less resources. The downside is, as I said, you get only file storage. If you find self-hosting to be too expensive, Backblaze is good, and you can encrypt all your files if you don't trust them.

    I haven't watched anime in quite some time but if you hate 'weeb-y' animes, like I do, my recommendations would be Death Note, Code Geass.

    If you find you like this style of anime, Kuroshitsuji is pretty good too. I recommend checking out both the dubbed and subtitle versions and choose whichever you like, don't go watching only dubbed/original without looking at them.
