    So, now that the power has been transitioned, are we winding down the daily threads for now?

    I have mixed feelings on Disenchantment, as everytime it feels like it's doing something interesting, it nopes out as fast as it can and goes back to castle shenanigans. Report back if you like it?

    What survives and what do the Democrats have to offer to make it go down easier? Between Trump Impeachment II and the razor thin Senate margins, Democrats have a loaded plate and Mitch can whip up opposition to all of it unless Corporate Liability, Less State Aid, or something else is up for offer.

    Tik Tok has always been an odd bird of a platform for me, but with the Duet functionality, it builds a pretty good case for being a easy collaboration tool for artists. It would be nice if there...

    Tik Tok has always been an odd bird of a platform for me, but with the Duet functionality, it builds a pretty good case for being a easy collaboration tool for artists. It would be nice if there was the option to line up the vertical videos into a more conventional aspect ratio instead of the black space, but I am no longer a youth in their demo, so maybe they like it.

    I bring to the table "Oh Jesus Christ, what did he do this time!?" Daily Thread. But I guess Transition of Power Daily Thread works just as well, if as not as clear as the other one.

    I know there was a whole lot a stank around the lootboxing mechanism that was supposed to be fixed right now, with an okay single player mode tacked on.

    Does this mean that Google Play apps can no longer run outside code? No emulators and such? That's going to put a bit of a hamper on planning to run Steam Linux games on Android.

    Untrusted apps that target Android 10 cannot invoke exec() on files within the app's home directory. This execution of files from the writable app home directory is a W^X violation. Apps should load only the binary code that's embedded within an app's APK file.

    Story kinda has to have conflict, even if it's as simple as "where can I have a bite to eat?" Character wants a thing, and doesn't have a thing, and has to go through an ordeal to get a thing. Now the conflict can be internal, as in this person happens across this society, and is wondering whether they should give up the life to have to join the commune, or what happens when another society wants their macguffin device, or why the crops aren't coming in.
