The new president made 36 promises about his first day, but kept only two of them.

To be fair, he kept two more campaign promises than any other politician ever has.

I kind of picked the wrong colors and half-assed the shadows. Not the final version...

In case anyone is wondering, Pixiv throws away color profiles when you upload illustrations (at least during their png -> jpeg conversion). That means if you have a wide-gamut monitor (and picked the colors out of the color picker on your monitor), everyone with a normal monitor will see a very desaturated image. If you convert to sRGB with a perceptual rendering intent to appeal to the average monitor, then people with a wide-gamut monitor are likely to see a very oversaturated image. (In current Chrome. I believe Safari and Firefox treat untagged images as sRGB, so everyone will see the right thing by pure accident.)

This ignores the case where you want to use colors that aren't in sRGB. You are sHIT out of luck in that case. (Every major browser handles images in arbitrary gamuts OK as long as they contained an embedded color profile. That would mean sRGB monitors show the closest the monitor can represent, and monitors with the same gamut as yours show what you saw. But that only happens if the profile is preserved, and Pixiv throws it away.)

Yes, it preserves the tags in the non-resized version. Everything wider than 1200px gets resized. I uploaded a 1200px wide tagged jpeg and it was preserved. The preview on the illustration's page ends up in the wrong color space, as do thumbnails throughout the site. But if you click through to view the large illustration it has the right tags.

You can't get it more wrong than this :(

I reconfigured the fans on my water cooling radiator to agree with the manufacturer's recommendation and lots of random advice on the Internet. The results are not good.

(The advice is to have the fans sucking air from the outside through the radiator and into your case. But sucking 150W of heat into the case is not that good of an idea. The CPU doesn't run any cooler, and the rest of the components are baking. Many hours wasted.)

Yeah. All of the advice makes sense on some level. The manufacturer of the CPU cooler wants the CPU to be as cold as possible, and indeed their advice ensures that. Internet people don't want to take off their fans to vacuum dust out of the radiator, so sure, make them "pull" instead of "push".

I just have fans sucking air into the case through filters, and then the radiator doesn't get dusty because the air being pushed through isn't dusty. Incidentally the reviews say the filters don't reduce airflow, but when installed on the radiator they increase the water temperature by almost 5 degrees C at max load / fan rpms (because they restrict airflow that much).

Does the teacher have a mixtape? If so, how many なんつってっつっちゃった remixes are on it?

Yeah, I'll let you know. I haven't actually opened Lightroom since I upgraded to the 6950x and have quite a queue of photos that need to be taken/imported/edited ;)

Overall, I feel like 99.99% of desktop software has never had a profiler run on it, much less been designed for multicore machines. Similarly, I feel like most disk pages end up in RAM very quickly, so SSD speed shouldn't matter except for maybe games. So I don't really anticipate any speedups. (Photoshop loves using the disk for operations that would easily fit into RAM, though, so who knows.)

> Note: Shut down is not the same as Restart.

I mean yeah, "shut down" is two words and "restart" is one, and I suppose that the drivers won't be in effect while the computer is powered off, but...

No, in Windows the latest windows (not sure when that started actually), they have this warning because it effectively doesn't act as a restart. A shut Down in the new windows is a glorified hibernation, and not a real restart as it used to be.
A shut down used the be the same as a restart but with a longer pause before the restart, but that's not the case anymore.

I couldn't help but notice that Yuru Yuri season 2 is stylized as "Yuru Yuri ♪♪" (with two eighth notes), and that the Yuru Yuri season 3 OP is in 6/8 time where three eighth notes get one beat.

That face when you realize:

1) It's Saturday.
2) There is an entire pint of rum raisin waiting to be eaten.
3) You're going to eat it and then go back to bed.

I'm really happy with how this turned out. The eyelashes are pretty bad, but I'm happy with the rest. OK, I'm not sure what light source makes shadows like that... but figuring that out is left as an exercise to the reader.

No idea how long G+ caches thumbnails, but I resubmitted with some hair highlights.

I also added a version with some new wallpaper installed in the Toshinou household. It's from the season 1 OP, and the color palette changed between seasons, so it doesn't really work.
