The GamerGate documentary/hit piece The Sarkeesian Effect bombed at the GG meeting where it debuted. LOL.
Well it finally happened. The pro-#Gamergate documentary/hit piece The Sarkeesian Effect premiered at the Gamergate in Atlanta event yesterday -- that is, the Jordan Owen version anyway. Last I che...

The situation in Calais is depressing. Reading the comments on the BBC news web site us even worse. A lot of people asking stupid questions like "why don't they stop at the first safe country?" or simply stating that it's a French problem.

Let me explain it in case anyone doesn't get it.

English bloke: Why should we deal with this? It's not our problem, it's happening in France, and they have no right to come here.

French bloke: why should we protect the English border? These people are not our responsibly, they don't want to live in France, it's a British problem.

Italian bloke: Why should we accept all these immigrants? The UK and France created this problem with their actions in Syria and Libya, and we are now stuck with it. They won't help at all, so we are just going to give these people papers and let them go where they want (as long as it's not Italy).

The only people making any sense are the Germans and the EU. Germany didn't cause this but is willing to accept some of the migrants. Politically it's impossible for us to deal with.

I feel sorry for these people. They just want somewhere to live normally. I can understand the attraction to come to the UK since we have best welfare state (£36 a week and free health care ect). I read it takes 36 weeks to claim asylum in France but only 6 weeks in the UK so what not better to do while you wait 30 weeks but try and get over here.

I don't think there's anything anyone can do its just going to get worse no matter how many fences they put up. The fact they already closed the terrorist gate on the tunnel twice and now the port workers have blockaded the port with burning tyres shows its probably not going to get better anytime soon.

Spring Airlines is an extremely low cost Chinese carrier. This is just an idea at the moment, but it might be taking things a bit too far...

Crashplan is pretty useless. 0.5Mb/sec upload speed, will take about a year to backup my stuff running 24/7 according to its own progress meter.

Yeah, I don't trust any of them now after getting burned by +Bitcasa​. I spent 2 years uploading, then they pulled the plan I was on and gave a hopelessly short notice period.
Personal storage only now.

I've been thinking about going to Birmingham in my EV. Should be easy, loads of charging points in Brum. Except that they are currently in flux... CYC run them, but the tender has already been given to another company (probably Chargemaster, the shittyest provider). On top of that, many of the existing posts belong to the council so they might be put out to tender again anyway.

So long story short getting a card that will actually work with Brummy charging posts for the next six months is proving rather difficult.

Kinda pathetic for the UK's second largest city, but also not unexpected.

Best off doing stops two to be on the safe side anyway. I managed to get to brum and back for £10 in my car. Had to drive at about 65 though to get 70+mpg

Apparently Fighting Fantasy books were published in Japan, and quite popular at the time. I had almost all of them at one time...

英国で出版されたアドベンチャーゲームブック「Deathtrap Dungeon」の初の邦訳版として1985年に社会思想社から出版された「死のワナの地下迷宮」。ハードコアなゲームブックで、当時中学生だった筆者の周りでは一大ゲームブックブームが起きており、この作品も興奮しながら楽しんだことを覚えている。弊誌読者におかれても、「ああ、懐かしい!」と思う人も多いのではないだろうか?

Korea gets 1Gb/sec internet service to mobile phones. Not just in the lab, this is a commercial service with a few thousand users already.

Meanwhile, Virgin Media can't supply 100Mb over a cable, and BT can't even dream of that speed in most places.

True, although this recently happened in one of the rotisserie style
car parks in Tokyo:

Also, I'm busy saving the world by driving my EV, how dare he block me in!

I was thinking that leap seconds were a pain in the arse, but didn't consider that in countries that are not near the UTC timezone have it even worse. The leap second happens at the same time globally, which is 9:00 in Japan. So their equipment sees an extra second during the day time, when people are actively using it.

Who couldn't see this coming? The police are out of control, with the ends frequently justifying the means.

On the subject of toilets, Sega make a device that checks your aim and encourages you to improve by scoring your effort on a screen placed above the urinal. It's marketed as a way to stop people pissing on the floor by improving their aim without nagging.

That's real innovation.
