    At least the Hidden Palace folks managed to put a smile on Yuji Naka's face in the very first day of the year, judging from he liking the HP release tweet instead of calling the Sony Cops Nintendo Ninjas lawyers :)


    That's actually really cool of him, but I guess he can publicly acknowledge these kind of things since he's no longer working at Sega.
    I always wonder what these industry folks think about prototypes/leaks/fan works on a personal level, legal team aside.

    Reactions... vary.

    Some get nostalgic, reminiscent of the good ol' times. ("Oh hey, you found that old broken beta build? Cool!")
    Some devs DO leak/release their own protos by themselves, which is real awesome.
    Some... don't take it easy, due to many reasons, but eventually get over it and start telling their stories. For a recent example (by none other but Sega themselves!), look at the Golden Axed incident.
    And some call for immediately shredding any and all files, then unleashing the hounds, as prototypes may reopen painful wounds from a distant past.

    Sega marketing treated the Golden Axed devs like absolute shit iirc, so it's perfectly sensible for those devs to be pissed the fuck off.

    https://banknotenews.com/?p=31890

    - Soviet Venezuela, current world champion of hyperinflation: "We have the highest inflation rate IN THE WORLD!"
    - Good ol' Zimbabwe, former world champion of hyperinfation: "Hold my beer~"

    The return of the ONE HUNDRED TRILLION DOLLARS banknote is near, I tell you! When your central bank says "we're going to print larger bills so you can make your transactions more efficiently", they actually mean "you're fucked, so here is your stack of fresh, worthless bills".

    But what makes Zimbabwe different from Venezuela is that they can get the printing presses started at short notice whenever they want - they can literally keep printing banknotes and redenominating their currency several times a decade if they want, sanctions or not. In the meanwhile, our largest banknote is still stuck at the 2019-vintage four-zero 50000 bolivar note... which is currently being printed at the fuckin' Soviet Union because nobody wants to risk selling supplies to our dilapidated Central Bank, whose fancy mint has been sitting idle for months (if not a year by now!). Either you're American-owned and can't sell supplies to us due to the sanctions, or you're not American yet don't want to end like De La Rue (which had to take a $MANY_MILLIONS hit due to unpaid bills for all those Sovereign Bolivar notes that are now sitting at bank vaults or brutally shredded, littering our streets). No word yet on reviving the 100K note, despite the 50K one being only worth 3 cents* (it was worth $8 when it launched on mid July '19, and yes, you still need those to catch COVID-19 and die on a crowded bus because you can't afford gas pay the bus fares) and the countless Bloomberg rumors of the thing actually coming... because who would be willing to print it for free?

    Oh, and Zimbabwe is a clear example of how a bunch of authoritarian assholes can ruin a working dollarization ("bond notes" my ass). Take note, Maduro!

    How can Maduro still be in power? We made a sternly-worded appeal for him to step down on international television!

    Which is a very good reason to fucking DISABLE "Google SafeSearch", as it has been false-flagging HDD Guru for WEEKS yet Google doesn't give a damn.

    The only dangerous thing here is Google meddling with every URL you visit.

    https://www.theregister.com/2021/01/14/hellabyte_si_prefix/
    https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=25788993

    Californians are trying its hardest to push their fancy new unit prefix to SI units, "hella", which equals 1027. Suddenly, stuff like "hellabytes of porn" starts making sense. Except that the SI guys already had other plans, which involves names taken from their grandmothers, it seems: "ronna" for 1027 and "quetta" for 1030, so those pesky North Californians have a uphill struggle to get those SI folks to change their minds.

    I myself would suggest standardizing "fuckton" and "assload" instead.

    MMPX Style-Preserving Pixel Art Magnification

    Out of curiosity I tried plunking random pixel art on the online demo site and was surprised to find it doesn't really do much to them, if at all. The resulting outputs seemed no better than Nearest scaling. Or I was probably just doing it all wrong.

    It does a little bit of staircase smoothing. Oh well...

    It occurred to me it might only really work on images where there are very distinct geometric boundaries in the images. So it's not really designed to handle pixel art containing primarily landscapes or natural scenery.

    A Problem For Days: Blocked Toilets On A Boeing 787 Dreamliner
    (All you need to know about toilets on airplanes: https://simpleflying.com/aircraft-toilets-2/ )

    Taking a dump on an airplane is Serious Business™. Sadly for us, you can't call your favorite fat Italian plumber to unclog the toilet on a $300M jet.

    Reminds me when the Mythbusters debunked the myth when airplane toilets could suck your ass and your brains out of the plane.

    Tesla Motors is now showing the market that if you don't get a new car every year, You're Doing It Wrong™:

    "Our fancy touchscreens were meant to last only 5-6 years!"
    https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1131184_tesla-recalled-touchscreens-were-meant-to-only-last-5-6-years
    https://www.thedrive.com/tech/27989/teslas-screen-saga-shows-why-automotive-grade-matters

    Using laptop-grade parts ON A FREAKIN' CAR (including "industrial-grade" displays, which are not good enough for the hostile environments you can find on the average car, and also consumer-grade eMMC flash with not the greatest of endurance), plus buggy software (which quickly wears down said consumer-grade eMMC!) straight from the Valley equals very expensive bricks. But it's all good, because you can always get yours serviced for the low, low price of ~$1350!
    The regulators eventually had to intervene and force Tesla to recall all those defective touchscreens ("butbutbut that pesky gub'mints! They're interfering with our profits! What do you mean that cars have to pass safety standards!?"). In the meanwhile, Elon "When will be the day the SEC will forcibly get me banned from Twitter?" Musk is too busy pumping up buttcoins and memecoins on his Twatter.

    Please please pretty fucking please do NOT let Silly Valley to "disrupt" our trains and airplanes too! We already have Boeing (MCAS NEVAR FORGET!), Airbus (have you powercycled your A3x0 this month yet?), and the CCP for that, thanks!

    I've been watching these for a few years now and I still can't get enough of them. But let's be honest, it's Greg Woods, the announcer, that really elevates these to something special.
