Re: United Airlines flight safely lands after dramatic engine failure caught on camera

I started to subscribe to this guy. Real pilot explainer channel. Lots of 'inside baseball' stuff. He deconstructs what happened and what the crew would have done.

Re: The Martian Extended Cut includes 9 new scenes

BTW, if you saw Tenet and didn't like it because you were totally confused, I recommend watching these YouTube explainers and giving it another chance. Like Interstellar, it has a fascinating science concept behind it, but it has implementation flaws in the movie. My second viewing the other night, ...

New AI ‘Deep Nostalgia’ brings old photos, including very old ones, to life

The guy who animated a face sculpture, man, that looks creepy.

The Martian Extended Cut includes 9 new scenes

I'm going to have to order a copy of the Extended cut after reading this. I was due to watch the movie again anyway.

Deep Rock Galactic 35% off & free to try this weekend

Damn fun monster hunter & mining coop game that's fun with friends or randos. I'm loving this game. Gopher has gotten very heavily into it as well. We both are skill level 45+ and have a few hundred hours into it. Always more to do. Trying to prestige my fourth class, there's weapon overclocks I...

My email to John Carmack in 1998 about his Quake 3 .plan

Heh. Went down a rabbit hole this morning, reading my old rant posts on The Quake Coop. This was the most recent one. 6/17/98 - An e-mail to John Carmack Concerning His Announcement of Quake Arena Hi, I rarely write to a developer because I know you guys are busy (likely you have your e-mail filtere...

Re: Mozilla beefs up anti-cross-site tracking in Firefox

I noticed that they changed the print preview, for the better. That's been very clunky up until now.

Re: I got an email from StarLink saying the beta now extends to my area

That's my backup as well. I considered getting CenturyLink DSL as a backup, but Verizon is pretty reliable here, and the bandwidth is excellent. I've actually gamed on Verizon on the few occasions when Comcast has gone down. Very low latency, and good speeds. I just need to put the phone on the Wind...

I got an email from StarLink saying the beta now extends to my area

Hmmm. Tempting, just to see what it's like. They want a refundable $99 deposit, but that just gets you on a limited beta waiting list. $99 a month, $500 for the equipment, $50 shipping. If that seems like a lot, HughesNet satellite Internet, which a lot a people in rural areas like mine use for Inte...
