quote [ Smithsonian paleontologist Hans Sues reveals some of his tips for finding and excavating a Mesozoic monster ]

If I had a dinosaur, just think what we could do

There is no evil like reCAPTCHA (v3)

quote [ The reason that people fail reCAPTCHA v3 prompts so consistently now is because Google realised there was no punishment to forcing people to solve more of these 'human verification puzzles' and only more to gain by forcing (yes it IS forcing) people to train their AI for free. ]

They are reworking these again now, but it seems you need to stay logged in to some Google account for them not to take this long. Pretty annoying given the wide use anyway.

SE Digest: Volume 46

quote [ Ugh, that was a terrible, terrible Superintendent Chalmers [impression]. ]

I'm not murdered!

In this volume I talk about the asshole roommate and what resulted from alerting the landlord to the problem, George Gurdjieff and being "woke", Area 51 and conspiracy theories, and how to balance speaking my mind on the podcast while protecting the community that inspires it.

Abandon All Hope: Moving Toward an Existentialist Environmentalism

quote [ None of this is to say that we shouldn?t recycle, subscribe to renewable energy suppliers, or take public transport to work rather than drive. However, what matters is not its impact something but the doing itself. ]

Couldn't get this bittersweet opinion piece out of my head: On fatalism in the face of failure. The gist is: Keeping on pushing is aiding ourselves, too.

SE Digest: Volume 45

quote [ It ended in murder... Well that wasn't where I was expecting that to go at all. ]

SE Digest early morning edition for you... if you happen to live in the middle of the Pacific ocean.

This volume I talked about recent events in my life concerning exercise and school, and did a proper once over of the past two weeks here on SE.

An 11-year-old changed election results on a replica Florida state website in under 10 minutes

quote [ An 11-year-old boy on Friday was able to hack into a replica of the Florida state election website and change voting results found there in under 10 minutes during the world?s largest yearly hacking convention ]

"I will accept the results when the election is free and clean. I cannot accept fraud." - Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador

SE Digest: Volume 44 (Part 10 of 10)

quote [ Love you all. SE is still great, you know, in my eyes. I still love it, and hopefully it'll be around for a little bit longer for us all so we can enjoy it and enjoy each other. ]

That is that.

In this final part to my 44th Volume of the second resurrection (third coming!) of the SE Digest, you'll find the usual shenanigans as well as talk about being hungover, the current state of SE as I see it, discovering some of you are actually listening to this silly mess (apologies, steele, if I broke something on the website while making this discover...), and plugging my book one last time before it goes out of print.

SE Digest: Volume 44 (Part 9 of 10)

quote [ Who doesn't love a good stupid joke? Oh, okay. Here you go:

How do you get a Cthulhu, or Cthulhuian, Cultist out of bed?


In this penultimate part of Volume 44, I talk about an old story of mine that another SE user got me thinking about, gave some brief thoughts on the upcoming Democratic debate, took a side trail to talk about a strategy soccer game I've been playing, and didn't mention my goddamn audio levels once. (I think...)

Last part of this Podcast Episode That Should Not Be will be here Sunday, then it's back to a more manageable schedule for the Digest thereafter.

SE Digest: Volume 44 (Part 8 of 10)

quote [ That's the problem. He's a cop. He is supposed to represent the law. Now, whether or not you agree with the law or not, he is a representative of the law and he should be held... I don't even know if I shou- I want to say that. Should. I don't want to say should, but I think it's fair to uphold him to an even higher standard than a normal citizen. ]

Recorded this morning before work, but had to leave before I could upload. Because I was rushing, I spoke at a pace a little quicker in normal. Actually sounds pretty good, or more engaging to the ears, I'd wager.

Today I talked about my foray this year into video game speedrunning, and my current attempts to break a world record on a particular game from my childhood.

SE Digest: Volume 44 (Part 7 of 10)

quote [ Oh my god this is gonna be a really shitty, shitty one. I should have just left the volume up. Here, let's just turn up the gain a little bit right now. There. Okay, fuck the background noise. You guys gotta be able to hear me, right?
(silence while checking the levels)
And still, really, the ambient room level's only at like 52. It's not great, but it's acceptable for an amateur podcast that's done out of your bedroom for no money. ]

It isn't that shitty.

Today I spoke about recording in my new bedroom and being tired. Got through the top 4 posts of the day and shared some YouTube vids along the way.

Technically, this is the 50th episode of the Digest I've produced. Where's my cake?
