Unfortunately, the incognito window I had all the tabs in closed when my computer last rebooted for updates. So I'll try and search as much of it as I can from memory and put it all here.

quote [ “I wholeheartedly believe, and will always believe,” Ms. Frame said to the camera, “that God has sent Mined Minds to us to save us from what could have been a very bleak future.”

quote [ Can a product be truly progressive? How can I free my skin? Let's discuss! ]
Thanks to ublock origin, streaming all my shows, and rarely leaving the house... I get to avoid most advertisements. Sadly, it's the "uplifting" or "wholesome" type of shit on social media that I'm most often exposed to nowadays. Like "80 year old man is given new POPULAR BRAND vehicle so he can keep working" or "yogurt company pays off overdue meal debts for an entire school!" Bleagh.

quote [ Wall Street investors are telling Uber and Lyft to cut down on driver income, stop incentives, and go faster to Driverless Cars. Uber and Lyft wrote that they think they pay drivers too much already. With the IPO (Initial Public Offering: when a Company first sells shares on the stock market), Uber's corporate owners are set to make billions, all while drivers are left in poverty and to go bankrupt. So Stand Up, Stand Up, NYC! Join the world-wide movement of fellow drivers and SAY NO TO UBER GREED! ]

quote [ Path tracing is a method for generating digital images by simulating how light would interact with objects in a virtual world. The path of light is traced by shooting rays (line segments) into the scene and tracking them as they bounce between objects. Path tracing gets its name from calculating the full path of light from a light source to the camera. Light can potentially bounce between many objects inside the virtual scene. As a ray of light hits a surface, it bounces and creates new rays of light. A path can therefore consist of a number of rays. By collecting all of the rays along a path together, the contributions of a light source and the surfaces along the path can be calculated. These calculations are used to produce a final image. ]
