Buckle up buttercups, here comes a Star Citizen thread. I haven't done one of these in awhile.
So, you remember how every year since 2014, during their CitizenCon, anniversary and holiday streams (all take place in Q4), CIG has used all sorts of bullshot presentations to scam gullible backers? Well, it's happened again. And this year it's even more blatant.
To understand what they've done this time around, you have to appreciate the fact that they have insurmountable tech challenges due to the fact that for 7 yrs they've raised almost $200m based pure hype alone.
Morning. We are in court 26 at the Rolls Building for Day 6 of the Bates v Post Office common issues trial. Post Office representatives will be cross examined (xe’d) by Patrick Green QC (PG). First up, I think, is Nick Beal. #postofficetrial
1) Another day, another story that goes like this. Organization is training developers in testing. Sounds like a pretty good idea at first, although most developers are already pretty good at the kind of testing that developers need to do, especially when they collaborate.
2) Turns out that developers are being trained in higher-level integration and system testing—the kind of deep testing that requires more domain knowledge and a substantial shift from the developer mindset. Hmm. Why are they getting this training? Because the testers were canned.
3) And why were the testers canned? Because they had been told "We have to do more automated testing! We have to automate all the testing!" Which means that the testers were being asked to do programming. And, though this may be a surprise, the testers weren't great at that.
Today it begins. Gigi and I are at the cancer center for her 1st chemotherapy treatment. It will take 8 hours, but the entire process takes 10 or 11 hours with lab work and consultations. Two days ago she had surgery to put a port under her skin for the frequent needles. /1
2/ Yesterday met with a surgeon about the multiple required surgeries. It is happening so quickly, it hasn't felt real. Gigi says the same.
But now it is real. She just finished lab work and we walked to the chemo center. Gigi was taken to the room. They'll call me, shortly.
3/ But Gigi is VERY encouraged. Running that marathon was vital. I dont think I mentioned it before, but Gigi got FIRST PLACE for her age group! She was worried she couldn't even finish. Her only goal was to finish, but she got first place. 🙏 (I need an emoji smiling with tears)
Vamos a hacerlo bien. Estoy estudiando este artículo: The Uninhabitable Earth, de @dwallacewells en @NYMag para mi próxima novela. Va sobre los desastrosos efectos (no tan lejanos) del cambio climático. Voy a ir comentándolo sobre la marcha en este HILO nymag.com/intelligencer/…
«The science says climate change threatens nearly every aspect of human life on this planet, and that inaction will hasten the problems» / La ciencia dice que el cambio climático amenaza casi cada aspecto de la vida humana en este planeta, y esa deriva acelerará los problemas.
«we have, trapped in Arctic permafrost, twice as much carbon as is currently wrecking the atmosphere of the planet, all of it scheduled to be released at a date that keeps getting moved up, partially in the form of a gas that multiplies its warming power 86 times over» Trad. ⬇️
I've changed my position on stockpiling for Br*xit. If you're going to do it, do it NOW so the stores have time to recover and replenish. Don't leave it til March and contribute to potential crisis. I've cleared out my outhouse out. I have no confidence in this Government.
I've been hungry before and I genuinely fear going hungry again. I may be being irrational, paranoid, but that's what trauma does to a person. It changes your boundaries of what you can tolerate. Hair triggers can set recovery back months, years. I'm so genuinely frightened.
And I've been keeping a lid on it but I'm genuinely petrified of what happens come March 29th. I've _written an entire book on cooking from tins_ for god's sake. This Govt has proven themselves again and again to be not only incompetent but also selfish, careless, shambolic...
RBI & North Block have been at loggerheads many times in the past:
1) First Governor of RBI - Sir Osborne Smith (1935-37) resigned before the completion of his term as his outlook on exchange rate & other policy issues differed with that of the Govt. He never signed any notes.
2. Sir Benegal Rama Rau, the longest serving Governor of the Bank from 1949-57, resigned in the middle of January 1957 before his second term expired due to differences with the then Finance Minister.
3. Mr. P Chidambaram and Dr. Y.V Reddy differed over FDI in Private Sector Banks.
Also, Reddy wanted a ban on Participatory Notes in India that encourages easy entry of foreign money.
