the a380's where designed for a world where airplanes never stopped flying.

In hindsight, it would've made more sense to scale down the plane after 9/11, or scrapped the project all-together.

Well, fuck.

I've been unable to open ANY Oracle page in the last few days. No Java downloads, no product catalogs, not even the documentation is available to me anymore: turns out that Orrible® laywers are in "overcompliance" with the US sanctions to the motherfucking commies, but since Orrible (just like Adobe) doesn't give a fuck over small countries where no money is to be had anymore, they just shitlisted us (the sanctions are OVER the top dogs at the regime, and state-owned institutions - not towards the private sector - this is not freakin' Cuba... yet!)

I've been seeing this instead of downloads/marketing fluff/whatever:
<ORACLE® LOGO>

This site <insert complete URL here> is experiencing technical difficulty. We are aware of the issue and are working as quick as possible to correct the issue.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

To speak with an Oracle sales representative: 1.800.ORACLE1.

To contact Oracle Corporate Headquarters from anywhere in the world: 1.650.506.7000.

To get technical support in the United States: 1.800.633.0738.



Incident Number: 18.d967c917.<random?>


At first I thought it was a temporary failure, yet I find nothing useful on the news (if Orrible were to be down worldwide, it certainly would have been a global disaster for most, and a moment of joy for me). Then, I tried checking the network transactions on the browser developer tools, and found everything (but the ORACLE® LOGO) returning 403 errors! Then, a quick search led me to this Reddit thread which made me face the facts: we're now an Orrible-less land from now on.

Unlike Adobe, this REALLY hurts big enterprises over here: banks, large chain stores (supermarkets, pharmacies, department stores), telcos, etc. Orrible IS that deeply ingrained on our IT, sadly. This also means that we can't download Java anymore, not even the end-user (still adware-laden?) JRE, much less JDKs, unless you resort to VPNs or proxies :/ Oh, and as a (mainly) Java developer, having no access to up-to-date docs means I'm in a special class of "fucked". Not that I care as I can just use whatever it's at the Debian repos, but for things like J2EE... ouch.

What still works:
- "Oracle Linux" YUM repository (yum.oracle.com)
- OpenJDK reference builds (jdk.java.net)
Everything else is 403 Forbidden for us.

No, I have no hopes for the situation to improve as Trump leaves power (and I don't want to continue this specific topic, as I don't talk about politics - all I have to say is that nobody in the Americas can choose sane leaders anymore - it's always the turd sandwich vs. the big douche)

What about AdoptOpenJDK.net ? Sure, no docs there, that I can tell, just installers.

This time I only needed an updated JRE for Windows (I do all my Java dev stuff from Linux anyway), and someone else already had told me about AdoptOpenJDK, so I ended going for that one. Win7 is officially not supported anymore, but it still seems to work fine. As a bonus, the installer doesn't ship with crapware or "Over 3 Billion Served" ads, plus it installs in a breeze!

JWZ vs. PSX emulation

Spoilers: the guy is a moron, in true Zawinski fashion:

- Ignoring completely emulation setup guides (like: every PSX emulator ever requires a native BIOS dump if you want good compatibility)
- Can't even $SEARCHENGINE the basics!
- Trying to rip PS2 discs from a freakin' Mac the dumb way!
- Asking for obvious copyright infringements ("hai I can haz RAWMz?")
- Trying to emulate PS2 (a notoriously difficult console to emulate on anything but hi-end x86_64) on an ARM toy (RPi)
- Trying to emulate the PSX link cable (how well is that thing supported?) on an ARM toy (which most likely can't cope with the overhead of running two consoles at the same time PLUS all the hell that involves emulating a link cable AND keeping things properly synchronized) UPDATE: looks like you can't do that on ARM anyway, as the existing SIO plugins are x86-only?
- It's JWZ asking people how to do something, which means most of his answers will be him being a dick

tl;dr: he failed to do his homework, and now he's not happy.

He should lay off the ROMz, and go back selling beer... if his nightclub doesn't get COVID'd for good first!

Ooooh, there is a second part: JWZ meets MAME... on an ARM toy!

This is not going to end well~~~

this JWZ seems to be overstating his abilities
