MICROSOFT

Its constantly thinking it knows better about what I need than I do.  Recently changing my security settings with an update that fucking shut down my VMs and other tomfoolery. WTF! Stop Microsoft. Stop it now. I understand your default settings for security due to those that don't know better. but when I fucking go through the time to change them (and use something better for my security needs than your bullshit) I don't need you to come along and flip the programs back on with a fucking update. .. which you try your fucking best  to shove down my throat as it is. Often times at the most inopportune times.

 

How about this Microsoft.. spend some more time on fixing your exploits and such instead of flipping my settings back on. Perhaps then you'd fix exploits that have been found in your system for more than 20 years!  Take care of your shit.. I'll take care of mine.. OK?

Browsing through new games, just looking for something with sexy female characters... but there is nothing (except of stuff from asia)  

I don't mean a porn game, just normal games but with appealing females. 

 

I miss seeing stuff like this in games:

You can see that kind of thing in CyberPunk 2077 but with a few extra polygons in the face models. Retro-Futurism to the rescue.

Thing is, it went from big titties in sexy spandex to flat chested women with curves.

 

Princess Leia never had a nice ass until Battlefront 2.

Dynamite Comics. They have a load of titles featuring heroines who are mainly known for the quantity of skin they display: Red Sonja,  Vampirella, Dejah Thoris, and so on. Each issue has about a dozen variant covers, each striving to be more revealing than the last ... and then you open the comic and the heroine spends the entire story wearing a burlap sack and generally looking about as sexy as assembly instructions for an IKEA flatpack cabinet.

 

I have fond memories of Red Sonja from my teenage years, but if I open one of her comics, it's not so I can see her dress sensibly so she can attend strategy sessions and set social policy.

The current writer of red sonja is one of the founding members of #comicsgate and has gotten about 40 people permanently blacklisted from the industry. Maybe stop giving her views and a platform.

Both the writer and the covers are under the control of the comic company. If the two disagree, that's poor management on someone's part.

 

False advertising is false advertising, and politics is no excuse.

Less politics and more ideology, and ideology isn't the excuse for it, it's the reason for it. It is a load of bullshit though.

 

Regrettably, there's not much to do about ideology, except boycott the products and let them course-correct or sink on their own.

You're right. Ideology does not excuse false advertising. It's definitely bullshit :)

Oh, I'm not looking for solutions. I just wanted to vent, and this seemed to be the place to do it.

I also call bullshit on the current shutdown we are having where I live.  They seem to not know what else to do.  I don't believe we need this and that most if not all of the people currently sick have been for awhile and many likely have some form of immunity to it now. I believe they'd do better focusing on those that have risk and need assistance money or otherwise (like shopping and delivery etc) so that they can avoid all contact with the outside during this upswing. Let those that have less risk do there thing.  Restaurants around me are closing down in great quantity ...  Loads of mom/pop businesses are shutting down as well .. entire areas of shops are gone. the government doesn't care as big money will come in and "revitalize" the area and bet your bottom dollar they will be praised for it. It wouldn't surprise me if those planing all this also have the plan to wipe out many of the low income businesses so that more high tax/revenue businesses can come in to boost the city's bottom line.

 

Good news though - tech giants' shares skyrocketed this year. Bah, who needs mom/pop businesses when you've got Amazon, right? Right?

 

Killing small business is the point. Tech giants get their shares boost, shareholders are ecstatic, financial institutions drop land prices in those previously expensive areas so they could make a huge buyouts and invest their money which is about to burn anyway into something real. At a huge discount. The Great Reset, as they call it, is coming, and they aren't to be the losers of it. "Mom and pop" will pay, not them.

 

I'm not a microbiologist, but I'm a lead software developer and I work with the marketing close for many years. I've seen those guys at work, and I respect them for their talents, but  I can smell marketing BS from a mile away, this "pandemics" is full of it. Starting from the day of those "support the doctors" flash-mobs on the intrawebs, with people shouting from their isolated homes on a camera, conveniently (and, of course, 100% randomly) placed nearby. WHO tried pulling it off several times, with many "pandemics", before. This time they did it right, with all the pieces in place. Gosh, they even got a nice name for it - "Corona-Virus'. Sounds royal. A nice trademark, actually.

 

What's going on is probably the largest scam in the history of mankind.

Long time ago I turned off the amber alert on my phone only because the beeping and ringing can really add up to be annoying not because I'm an insensitive bastard. I mean I am but that is besides the point. I got an amber alert anyway and I'm thinking seriously? Checked my settings. Amber alert off. Bullshit!

I wonder if this would still happen if it were an app you can delete. Guess we may never know.

Hours of my life gone because of a simple syntax error. Fuck me.

I could say the same, but not complain, because i get paid by the hour 😛

 

Even so, fucking legacy technology my work is stuck on!

Can't i start coding in .Net 5?

That would be cool.

Or at least less horrible.

I think.

Juggling multiple NPC replacers, think I got everything working together... than, by chance, I find some blackface'd nobody that I'd never see again. 😒

 

Edit: It was a fucking weapon mod...

Geo-blocked content. Saw a pornstar I really wanted to see more of and got the message "Payments from your country are not accepted".- forcing me to use a workaround to open an account. Is my internet access anything like other people's from a different region? I kind of doubt it now.

 

We get "selective" internet access based on a growing list of things. Censor much do we?

In the same vein:

Games that are marked as sexual content are blocked for Germans since December.

Because some government agency from Hamburg finally realised that Steam's age verification process isn't robust so minors can easily access and buy these games, they just have to lie about their age when asked by Steam.

Which means that the statement in the screenshot is a bold lie to shift the blame away from them and that makes me even madder than the fact itself.

Right now I don't know if I will be able to actually play Subverse, a game I supported on Kickstarter. And my Steam wishlist that I frequently check for sales offers got a bit shorter too.

 

I'm not mad at the gubbernmint people from Hamburg btw, but at Steam for lazily blocking these games for everybody here and pissing off their German users instead of finally implementing some sort of age verification system. But maybe they are working on it, at least I hope so. If not I will take my games buying business to GoG, they don't offer any sexual content anyway and they have many of the same games that are sold on Steam.

Also they didn't piss me off so far.

Fuck you Steam! 🤬

Yep. One of the banes of my life is mods which have no reason to touch any NPCs go ahead and make changes without anything being mentioned in the mod description.
