Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

Musk is apparently cutting costs by copying a classic Trump strategy: stiffing his vendors . Sadly, not surprising. However, this part jumped out at me: [Management has directed] Twitter employees to renegotiate the deals that the company has with firms such as Amazon and Oracle , which provide comp...

Re: Twitter Dee & Twitter Dumb

A poll that had suspiciously little motion over time, weighted in the direction of exactly what Musk said he'd do months ago.

Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

While it's up: 1593307541932474368 They've helpfully posted their sources in the event of a Twitterplosion, or just getting banned arbitrarily. I can certainly say that the claims Musk has made about his grad school admission just do not pass the smell test, for anyone that's actually been admitted ...

Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

Not passively antagonizing businesses, either; Musk is already threatening to " thermonuclear name and shame " advertisers that have paused their buys. On the plus side, I'm a lot less worried about Twitter's possible effect on the 2024 election now that I'm not sure it'll have meaningful ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pEb6wSpCks Riven remake in development. Just those few seconds of music hit my nostalgia buttons hard, so I guess I'm all on board. Portal/Portal 2 is perhaps a good analog here: Myst was an impressive tech demo, then Riven is where they turned it into a genuinely m...

I like to think that all movies whose title could be written as "Death [Object]: The [Object] That Eats" form a series. An amazing series.

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

My long-running October tradition is to replay one of the GBA/DS Igavanias from the start, on a rotating six-year cycle, so it's long enough between installments for the map to feel fresh each time. This year, Circle of the Moon was up, and I actually think I'm done with that one – the back half is ...

Re: Game musings and news

Reader's shutdown is specifically what made me wary of any future software-as-a-service offerings, many years before anyone even called it SaaS. For Stadia, there was also the incredibly confusing marketing about the plans right from the start. If I remember right, the only option at launch was $130...

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

Was amusing to realize, after craving a trashy donut for the first time in many, MANY years, that somehow - against maybe all odds in the universe, given this is Canada - we live in what might be the only neighbourhood with no coffee/donut shops ANYWHERE. Some years ago, I found myself waiting in t...

That gushing sound you heard is every white-shoe corporate law firm in the country salivating over the billable hours to come. Twitter is apparently determined to make this true: they just contracted with the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. Wachtell is notable for a few things, incl...

Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

Twitter's management has already stated they intend to pursue the deal in court, at the original $44 billion price.

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

It seems like a worrisome sign to receive a jury duty summons that specifies six days just for jury selection, followed by 23 days stretching across eight weeks already allocated for the trial itself.
