TehAmelie: we ARE blessings from the void *starry eyed face*
GapFiller: good on Beej getting his first jab
beowuuf: a machine too complicated to comprehend itself?
TehAmelie: of course. just think about a computer emulating itself
TehAmelie: for context, we still don't have the hardware to fully emulate SNES without slowdown
beowuuf: Ok, now I'm imagining our consciousnesses are just DOS being run on a more complicated operating system we can't detect
TehAmelie: i would recommend the book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind
TehAmelie: i don't know how historically accurate it is but it has some groovy ideas
beowuuf: cool, wiill make a note of it :)
TehAmelie: full disclosure, i have only skimmed it
TheMerricat: Afternoon chat!
beowuuf: i am so bad at reading anything these days that i sadly msy never get to checking it out :(
beowuuf: and hey themerricat!
TheMerricat: 👋
TehAmelie: howdy

TehAmelie: there's no rule that says you have to have space in your life for everything to change, it's not a judgment. just advice
beowuuf: that reminds me, american gods is still in my reading list (as in I have the darn book on my shelf and I've meant to check that out too)
serramarkov: PJSalt I didn't do my homework, I was trying to access my Prime account to double join LRR.
TehAmelie: ah, i'd recommend that more
TehAmelie: you can probably check out the TV show faster, if that counts
beowuuf: the tv show left me with the impression i would far more enjoy the book :)
beowuuf: homework had some wild moments
TehAmelie: well, the book has more stuff. i figure carrying the singularly gorgeous visual language of the show into it would be even better
TheMerricat: Esp since last I heard the TV show American Gods new seasons were put on the kabosh due to someone acting poorly (can't remember who though)
serramarkov: I'll watch it later.
GapFiller: a megacorp getting caught trying to pass itself off as an underdog startup is a particularly delicious subset example of multinationals trying to disguise their attempts to shirk corporate responsibilities
TheMerricat: I take it we are talking Twitch Book Club? :)
serramarkov: Thanks for the heads up/teaser.
beowuuf: i thought it was just a numbers thing that got the series cancelled?
TehAmelie: it's getting made. someone had a gay panic, but my understanding is that the gay was stronger
GapFiller: oooh a calculator
DeM0nFiRe: The thing about the epic vs apple that sucks to me is I think epic is correct that having these walled garden devices is bad, but epic are being so cartoonishly evil and are so bad at arguing it
TheMerricat: @beowuuf something happened between season 1 and 2 that got a bunch of the cast riled up. but that was pre-end of the world and I can't remember the details
PharaohBender27: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (1s from now).

GapFiller: DeM0nFiRe ah them when yr wish the arsehole wasnt on yr side feels eh
beowuuf: oh, yeh, show runner stuff. Series 3 got made and has been released. Just series 4 i thought was not getting done. Ok :)
Raiz0k: Hello all.
beowuuf: v close
TheMerricat: wow I'm really behind on it then :)
Metric_Furlong: hello Raiz0k
serramarkov: @PharaohBender27 you'd have to be a bot to get it closer!
DeM0nFiRe: GapFiller basically yeah
TehAmelie: me too. i don't know if i watched season 2
TheMerricat: PrideWave @Raiz0k
PharaohBender27: @serramarkov I usually go by my watch, but it's been running a bit fast of late. :p

beowuuf: Huh, sig-nope?
TehAmelie: i think catching up with American Gods will be my work tonight
TheMerricat: This is alot like Google v Oracle concerning Andrioid and Java API, you don't want either to win but you want one of them to lose.
TehAmelie: after lrrSIGNAL

GapFiller: nalvLUL ohhh that Van is SO Beej
TheMerricat: @gapfiller if that was a question, epic is told to go fuck off since they violated a contract, Apple is told to fuck off and open up the iOS environment to 3rd party app stores and can do whatever the fuck they want on the Apple app store.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Fortunately, it looks like we got the most favorable outcome on that one :).
serramarkov: Ooh, can the courts say, okay Thunderdome 2 Boards enter, 1 Board leaves?
hexy_lexy: hey friends! reminder that yall are fantastic and valueable and loved!
saiarcot895: @TehAmelie and to add to that, one of the billionaire corporations made a nonprofit and is trying to present themselves as "for the developers"

Raiz0k: Yeah, I'm almost starting lawyers are people too ;).
Raiz0k: *starting to believe
beowuuf: this court case is bananas! no, we mean...literally actually part of the content...
GapFiller: TheMerricat oh it IS a mod?
GapFiller: made the same mistake they did and thought it was built in
misteline: Ben's stream ended just in time
TheMerricat: There are lawyers like Legal Eagle and then there are the idiots in the Apple vs Epic case. :P

kusinohki: @kusinohki the funny thing is, i generally don't watch mine o clock
TheMerricat: Beej's bananas :)
Raiz0k: Good book choice there, Heather!
beowuuf: i hope someone *doesn't* look at you the way beej looks at a bananan
GapFiller: good evening Beej Paul Heather

Fried_Twinkie: Well to heck with this show, I'm going to watch that
GapFiller: Beej has gotta get that potasssium yo
TheMerricat: I'm getting double audio, do I have two tabs open or is it any one ellse?
PMAvers: Red is sus.
PixelArtDragon: Peely is a biped, and is featherless. Therefore, Peely is a plucked chicken.
DeM0nFiRe: Beej, do you think it is appropriate to have that banana without a suit on stream?
beowuuf: @kusinohki lol, then that is amazing conditioning :D
saiarcot895: @TheMerricat find for me
Vyous: @TheMerricat 2 tabs
saiarcot895: *fine
accountmadeforants: I don't know what that is, but chat needs that, Heather.
ritchards: @TheMerricat I'm going with 2 tabs
KeytarCat: I finished my morning stuff before I have to meet people, so I can watch!
GapFiller: so Beej how dyr feel abt yr potassium intake?
TheMerricat: Yep I found the second tab, thanks chat :)
beowuuf: @TheMerricat audio seems fine?
TheMerricat: It was a nice effect though :)
KeytarCat: I'm mildly allergic to bananas
PMAvers: Stick some peanut butter on there?
Raiz0k: *Looks at Beej remembering the homework* <butterfly_meme>is this vore?</butterfly_meme>
GapFiller: speaking of bananas discovered banana peel bacon this week
RvLeshrac: But if you cut a banana in half, the exposed part turns brown.
RvLeshrac: Even if you cover it, it turns brown.
TheMerricat: Today on Beej eats the whole thing? :)
LarkSachrosis: It's possible, Mitch Hedberg was a pretty strange guy.
Ignatiuspants: that uncovered banana is too lewd for federal court
RvLeshrac: I'm with Beej on this.
DoodlestheGreat: Carbonite. :tf:
beowuuf: frying banana skin like bacon is apparently good or something?
Invitare: I can see getting tired of American pancakes
ghyllnox: Or wrap in foil and freeze!
GapFiller: that was fun and is a great 2nd secret tech after the bananas in curry ting
Swordsman_24: All the tin foil is being used for hats at the moment
Invitare: but British ones, or crepes? Nah
RvLeshrac: Also I want to hear about the wrong way to eat pancakes.
GapFiller: beowuuf YUUUP
BrokenGolem: and now there's banana-peel pasta
Raiz0k: @GapFiller Heard good things, but never tried that. So, plenty good I assume?
beowuuf: @GapFiller where did it come from, i want to say LRR but can't think why
adamjford: I didn't come here to get read, Heather. Rude.
TheAinMAP: Hello.
serramarkov: Bananas are great in Nutbread, otherwise they are for others, not me.
lexomancer: !lurk
Faulpyr: This is the show where we talk about bananas.
saiarcot895: beej's hair is sufficiently wild
GapFiller: yep banana peels make for great curry flavouring AND great bacon subs
Raiz0k: Curry flavoring, huh, interesting.
saiarcot895: famous last words
beowuuf: don't let epic win, they have actually planned for the news cycle to fade!
CAKHost: No this week we were just 2/3 EPIC and Apple and Minecraft
matthaus_c: Graham's story also totally swept me off my feet
PMAvers: This is veering way too close to actual journalism.
beowuuf: did he go to journalism for that?
PMAvers: I'm scared.
HundreydAundre: We heard it 1st from Graham?!
CAKHost: *, and Minecraft
GapFiller: so CP+ is just gonna be all Epic v Apple nxt few months then
PharaohBender27: Party300 Congrats on getting your first dose, lrrBEEEJ !
GapFiller: Epic Apple is the neu Fork Knife isnt it ...wait what am I saying ofc Epic Apple is the neu Fork Knife
Raiz0k: Epicopaleptic?
beowuuf: clearly we need a CP spin off show that's just the epic/apple trial
HundreydAundre: Epplic Lawsuits
stgts_: excited for Checkpoint to win a begrudging journalism award
beowuuf: i see you've played epic / apple before
TheMerricat: I demand lrr convert to being a Groklaw like blog covering every detail of this lawsuit!!!!
LordZarano: Apaleptic
the_canuck_mystic: What's the size of earnings Apple App Store vs G Play?
toadyak: Journalism these days.
DeM0nFiRe: btw this is not an uncommon thing for companies to do, form non profit action groups that are just a way to pretend the public is on their side
TheMerricat: ^^^
matthaus_c: I still can't believe they did this for a best case 5% boost against a 53% loss risk
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat At least have minimal mercy on the LRR crew.
saiarcot895: @the_canuck_mystic Apple definitely gets more from their App Store than Google gets from Play Store, partly because iOS apps are more expensive
DeM0nFiRe: Uber is part of an action group to not allow people to have self driving cars for example lol
TheMerricat: lol @raiz0k
PharaohBender27: @DeM0nFiRe Ah, good ol
Raiz0k: :)
saiarcot895: and/or people just pay more for apps on that platform
PharaohBender27: *ol' Astroturfing
misteline: It kind of frustrates me that the evidence suggests that Apple was trying to give value for the money.
matthaus_c: And add more stuff?
the_canuck_mystic: @saiarcot895 That's why they're targeting Apple
GapFiller: nalvLUL yes that bit
the_canuck_mystic: I feel like they're targeting Apple *first*, if G Play were bigger they'd target G Play.
TheMerricat: epic doesn't need Google to be able to install fortnite onto an Android device you just need to have your APK downloadable on your wrbsite
Raiz0k: @misteline : that's means Apple's lawyers are doing their jobs. Basically Anti-anti-competitive arguments 101 (or even 201 ;) ).
TheMerricat: I mean I've got four "outside" installed apps on my phone and they all even auto update
ritchards: History? Pfft, what's that ever done for us?
saiarcot895: @the_canuck_mystic they have a stronger case for Apple; it's trivial to put other app stores on Android
saiarcot895: *against Apple
HundreydAundre: It's kind of like, "Okay. "Storm Crow": is on the s t a c k."
Raiz0k: Yeah, for Android you have to prove the Store is the de facto monopolist, for Apple you just argue around de jure.
EightBitDreams: That was the entire reason the iPhone jailbreaking scene became a big thing
Too_Many_Knives: Elon Musk now has the RDF of Steve Jobs.
DeM0nFiRe: @the_canuck_mystic Well the argument would be different, you can already run your own app store on android if you want or directly give your apps to people without having them go to the store. Amazon has their own app store for android
Vyous: Windows Phone and blackberry did
matthaus_c: @Too_Many_Knives does he? I think way more people find Musk inherently loathsome
Raiz0k: The sentiments about Musk look like to be around the tipping point right about now.
Too_Many_Knives: @matthaus_c Plenty of people thought Jobs was a tool too. But I'll grant Twitter lets Musk offend people in a way Jobs never could.
KeytarCat: @matthaus_c folks hear more about him than from him
misteline: @raiz0k I recognize that, tbh Apple doesn't have to do much to convince me in this case. Epic was not sympathetic for me, but it kind of baffles me how much of a paper trail they left and how unsympathetic they acted.
accountmadeforants: I'm still on team "I want both companies to somehow lose horribly". Not even in the sense of "Oh, but if I had to pick one of them...", no, they're both loathsome companies.
Raiz0k: Yeah, it's weird how little legal buffering they placed in preparation for the trial.
pharniel: yes, best case is that they piss off every major political faction and congress actually Does Something
NoxStryx: totally not a married couple at all
the_canuck_mystic: It's not a tax ... it's a rent :D
tuckamanian: its a royalty
Raiz0k: Ironically, a 30% tariff is way easier to defend for Apple than for Google, given the Android Store's legendary poor support.
RvLeshrac: In theory it is a service fee, except Apple is providing no service, at all, in any capacity, at any level, and has provided *even fewer* services for developers over the years. *And Apple charges even more for all of the other services they provide*.
pharniel: Adam Smith has some surprisingly harsh things to say about landlords & rent seekers
RvLeshrac: That first Apple should really be "the iOS store"
virre_: Um hating tax might be a where you live thing, that is also in some places very poltical
the_canuck_mystic: @pharniel That was my reference :D
Lord_Hosk: The flip side is that the 30% isn't just paying for the apps you buy its paying for all the malware aps you never see on the ap store because they get filtered out. and those do get submitted.
ren_suzugamori_173: Do you remember when the phone had a diamond before the octothrope.
antonioalsen: :)
GapFiller: also gotta stick the neck out here and admit to being pro taxes
saiarcot895: @RvLeshrac they review the apps, though, don't they? that needs manpower
dylan16807: apple invites that argument when they say "we need to be the payment processor for safety reasons" for subscriptions
RvLeshrac: saiarcot895: That's entirely automated code review.
Gizmoloid: I wonder how the process of making apps for cell phones looked like back in the day because they existed, you could install stuff on your phone - I had Gameloft games on my monochrome Siemens C55, for example. Or Rovio had games for Symbian long before Iphone existed.
GapFiller: people shdnt feel inherently negative abt taxation given what that money shd be paying for
pharniel: @saiarcot895 'review' is a generous term. Audits of the apple app store have found swaths of malware
accountmadeforants: For a more fun story: Itch.io is setting their service fee to 0% for a day (payment fees still apply). Which was always an option for developers, but now they don't get the choice to pay them at all :P
EightBitDreams: Apple likes to make a big deal about how they make billions off their app store, they could afford to lower their cut. Whether they should or not is a different question, but yeah, these days it doesn't *need* to be 30%
Raiz0k: @Lord_Hosk Yeah, but the question is does 30% pay for it? Or 25, 15, 5, 0.5?
the_canuck_mystic: But Apple set the standard as the first major appstore of its kind.
ren_suzugamori_173: Canada has 2 type of bill taxes when making a invoice.
RvLeshrac: saiarcot895: This is like the TSA, where they claim to do a lot of things, except actual testing proves they don't do ANY of those things.
tuckamanian: beeg let his hair grow long. SeemsGood
RvLeshrac: *ALSO* Apple *REQUIRES* that all iOS developers develop for iOS on *Apple branded* hardware, using Apple software, paying for all kinds of other shit, *on top* of the fee they charge when you sell your thing.
PixelArtDragon: If only one company is actually doing less than 30%, it might end up becoming the exception that proves the rule

BasilHunter: EPIC store only for Arena
LurkerSpine: I have purchased a jackbox game from it. that's it
RaynMurfy: I am playing one of them right now
serramarkov: The only reason I have Epic is for Arena.
LurkerSpine: They STILL don't have a shopping cart
shadmed: def gotten a lot of games I don't play from epic
NapalmSideburns: That giving out free games/deep discounts had a tail as well, with Paradox Interactive pulling their games from the EGS because they hadn't authorized that sale and it devalued the games
pharniel: Epic was Control & Metro. They got me with the two games
dylan16807: I bought one or two but the sale was good enough that I'm not sure they made money
PixelArtDragon: I have spent exactly $0 on Epic, but I still think I've gotten more value from Steam sales
GapFiller: maybe this is personal bias from seeing him onstream all the time but Beejs hair just seems totally normal to me now
ritchards: You wouldn't download a Store Front, would you?
GapFiller: to the point where its hard to understand what all the fuss is abt when people comment on how wild it is
HundreydAundre: I figured that this would be brought up in the conversation.
TheMerricat: @ritchards no but I wish Epic would :p
Raiz0k: @PixelArtDragon Yeah, but again, it's a question whether the 30% is due to the inherent cost, or is that an oligopoly (or even cartel, remember the under-the-desk non-comp agreements?) thing.
matthaus_c: I'm now thinking about how I got several games in the Epic Store for free and then never played them vs. games I paid for in Steam and actually played them in the last year
RvLeshrac: Apple's policies are shit, but I definitely wouldn't want it to get lost that Epic is exactly as shitty as Apple.
LordZarano: Customers did probably
EightBitDreams: It's crazy that Apple found those documents explaining Project Liberty, I wonder if Epic had planned on that happening
RvLeshrac: The reality is that if you have a mobile game, you don't have a choice, with rare exception you have to put it on the iOS store or you just don't sell.
ren_suzugamori_173: The date of the invoice will determine when you need to report and remit (pay) the GST/HST you charge.
TheMerricat: I think the fact that Valve is Uber rich is evidence that 30% is more than enough money to support a digital store
pharniel: Yeah, this is big "US Steel vs. Standard Oil" energy
the_canuck_mystic: Are folks really finding this stuff shocking?
accountmadeforants: Honestly, the most damning thing to come out w.r.t. Apple during discovery was probably this: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/05/apple-brass-discussed-disclosing-128-million-iphone-hack-then-decided-not-to/
PMAvers: It also probably helps that Valve isn't a public-traded company, either.
the_canuck_mystic: They were going to war with Apple, they planned ahead, right?
misteline: It also looks bad that they actively thwarted some of the potential value Apple offered.
Angreed66: That might be their strategy to win the court of public opinion
GapFiller: yeh it turns out multinational megacorps are frequently unself aware abt their public image
matthaus_c: more info will come out over Graham*
pharniel: @Angreed66 Yeah. My guess is to make this a Political Thing and then take action to state lawmakers and/or the feds
TheMerricat: I'm assuming this was for the bedrock version.
ren_suzugamori_173: Breaking News: Beej is still sexy.
matthaus_c: put Kung Fu Panda in Smash
Lord_Hosk: This certainly feels like some executives on the EPIC side thought that with the publicity they would get apple to negotiate a better deal quietly behind the scenes and it would never go to trial.
PMAvers: Ryu with a gun!
EightBitDreams: As long as it gets the movie music I'm in
LordZarano: That company that Epic hired really nailed their analysis though
LurkerSpine: For skins, absolutely
Raiz0k: We should just feel lucky it wasn't Minions.
DeM0nFiRe: Well, Minecraft did what Fortnite is doing now first, before Fortnite was getting all these 3rd party deals MInecraft was getting Halo, Skyrim, Mass Effect etc.
LurkerSpine: they have Mario, MTG, pretty sure they've had DC and Marvel too
TheMerricat: Minecraft bedrock version IE non-java has gotten lots of skin-based DLC
Favre_the_Undead: microsoft bought them 7 years ago
RvLeshrac: Apple behaves like a monopoly, whether people want to accept it or not, and attempts to de facto prohibit the sale of any competing apps or services on the iOS store.
Ritaspirithntr: Mass Effect and Halo too
RvLeshrac: Unfortunately, Epic probably isn't going to prove that because they're so terribly unprepared for everything.

PMAvers: How to Train Your Dragon Maid
TheMerricat: @kusinohki the og java version is bare of any of this, the c+ version Microsoft created after they bought Minecraft has a lot of hooks in it to get kids money
matthaus_c: @PMAvers omg benginLol
EightBitDreams: It sure looks like a Dreamworks movie
Silver__Light: trollz worl tour?
LurkerSpine: His best role is in Goon
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat The funny thing is that kids (after a certain age, anyway) *still* want the "version with the mods".
ren_suzugamori_173: The Nice guy.
asddsa28: there so nice
Ritaspirithntr: Yeah, TheMerricat. I think it was console versions of Minecraft had a lot of IPs and DLC Packs while Java/PC Minecraft is heavily modded by consumers.

DeM0nFiRe: Once games went to having dedicated servers all the time, I don't think the barrier for crossplay was ever technical, I think it's been contractual for a long time
RvLeshrac: So cross-play between XBox One/SeXBox titles is literally just flipping a switch.
Raiz0k: Most likely a checkbox in the deploy system than in the engine :).
kusinohki: did they flip flop the day/month numbers?
RvLeshrac: Cross-play between PS4/5 titles and anything else, however, is a bit of a clusterfuck.
DoodlestheGreat: Unintentional betas can be fun!
PixelArtDragon: Maybe the test server accidentally got connected to the login server?
Raiz0k: Oh Heather, the amount of times something gets prod instead of test in IT... there aren't enough fingers in the world to count that.
ren_suzugamori_173: Breaking News: Paul fix Crossplay in a Macro Level.
accountmadeforants: RvLeshrac Not for any technical reason, but mainly because Sony really doesn't like it. (Which was another fun thing to come out of Epic v. Apple. Epic's paying Sony a cut of their sales on every other platform to allow crossplay.)
LurkerSpine: Could also just be a goof on a merge request, and they merged to release instead of dev
EightBitDreams: In the end, not counting console agreements and testing, it's telling the game where to look for its list of player IP addresses and player account IDs, so while it's not really a checkbox, it's still pretty simple
RvLeshrac: accountmadeforants: No, for a technical reason, PS4/5 development is still pretty wildly different, and keeping game versions in sync is a problem.
0x6772: You *ABSOLUTELY* test for stuff that isn't there. That's what test cases are for.
TheMerricat: there was a technical reason for cross play issues just in that for things that depend on split second timing it matters if one processor has a different code for the simulation. you can get out of sync and or one side gets and advantage

RvLeshrac: accountmadeforants: XBox/SeXBox/PC builds of a game are functionally just the same build of a game, however.
saiarcot895: @0x6772 more specifically, negative test cases. But I doubt every game company does this
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Yeah, that's why it takes so much time, among other things - to test the netcode.
RvLeshrac: Err... "XBox One/SeXBox/PC
ren_suzugamori_173: Breaking News: Paul has killed us all.
0x6772: @saiarcot895 Yup. I'm saying somebody made a bad mistake, but it was the person who failed to write the test harness correctly.
RvLeshrac: TheMerricat: That's why it is important that the XBoxes post-360 have all just used amd64 CPUs, and you have to write no special code.
Faulpyr: Back when it was Save the World.
LurkerSpine: Well, part of that is because Sony has had some really unfortunate security incidents
Faulpyr: I played on my Computer with a friend on his PS3
Faulpyr: (or maybe PS4)
Faulpyr: (probably the latter)
DaSunao: I can see Sony not wanting other environments they don't control touching their playerbase's experience
RvLeshrac: DaSunao: that's not it.
public_key_reveal_party: with what Beej mentioned, I work in development, and I have joined more than one project where I see a test for some really obscure error, and it's kinda like, "oh so someone messed that up at some point"
RvLeshrac: DaSunao: The Epic lawsuit revealed that Sony's only problem is that they can't extort money out of everyone.
Faulpyr: Genshin Impact is still not cross-save... but it IS cross-play
ren_suzugamori_173: #BlamePaulForCrossPlay
saiarcot895: $10 in the US
Raiz0k: How much is that in penny-farthings?
RvLeshrac: Sony wanted developers to make up the sales difference if a game that has cross-play has more players on PSN but more sales elsewhere, as in "You sold more copies on XBox so you now have to pay us 30% of those sales for every player you have that isn't on PSN"
PixelArtDragon: How much is that in Krona?
accountmadeforants: RvLeshrac That's fair, I hadn't thought about the potentially different builds. (Though I'd be willing to pin that on Sony as well, rather than *real* technical issues. Given that both the Xbox and PS are effectively using the same generation AMD SoC at this point, just in different configurations.)

LordZarano: Wait, really? I thought that was a Photoshop of the iOS calculator onto the Switch screen
RvLeshrac: Err... "every player you have that is on PSN over Live"
LurkerSpine: It has Youtube
Faulpyr: It has Hulu, I think?
Ignatiuspants: the Switch has a YouTube!
NonjaBiru: It has hulu?
Metric_Furlong: Raiz0k farthing the currency or the bicycle?
Favre_the_Undead: the wii had netflix
saiarcot895: @LordZarano nope, that's the actual UI in the main show
Faulpyr: Might just be YouTube
Mai_Andra: I thought it did have Netflix... hmmm...
CAKHost: Some games do have a music player in them? But that's something built into the game
misteline: It had Hulu, probably still does.
saiarcot895: speedruns to 1000 are happening as well
RvLeshrac: @accountmadeforants The PS2/3 were so insanely different that nobody could effectively write code for them, so Sony made it easier with the PS4, and easier with the PS5, but it still requires ridiculous amounts of custom dev work.
EightBitDreams: Here's the funny thing: Apple iPad Pro has no built-in calculator either
Lysander_Gustav: speedrun strats
LathosTiran: 8008135
Metric_Furlong: the great debate
public_key_reveal_party: Heather is redefining the met
ren_suzugamori_173: Secret Japanese games that make go this is not safe for childs on switch.
public_key_reveal_party: *meta
Raiz0k: @Metric_Furlong : the latter of course, given the prefix. Just materials-wise, wrought iron has a healthy amount of weight after all. Also, I see the question is on-brand for your nickname :D.
LordZarano: DS homebrew had a bunch of productivity stuff
kusinohki: I was thinking about typing that joke and paul and heather beat me to it....
EightBitDreams: That would be really hard with an American football
LurkerSpine: American Football is called football because it's a ball sport played on foot.
RvLeshrac: I would say that a Nintendo console would block you from displaying 58008 on a calculator, but then you remember Doki Doki Majo Shinpan, and the Moero games have been on Nintendo consoles.
LurkerSpine: Pretty sure rugby is also called football in places
ren_suzugamori_173: Footbola
CAKHost: I guess what I am getting at, is that I guess someone could develop a music player for the Switch to let you play any songs from any game you have on the Switch, assuming that is something someone can do
beowuuf: aussie rules football feels more like rugby
Metric_Furlong: LurkerSpine "Rugby Football" is it's original full name, in fact
PMAvers: Round is friend-shaped, ergo Kirby.
accountmadeforants: RvLeshrac I'm familiar with Sony's labyrinthian approach to documenting their PS2 and PS3 hardware (sometimes on purpose, to give them "some room to grow"!). I'm saying that the underlying hardware is similar enough at this point that those difficulties *should* reasonably be possible to abstract away, and anything getting in the way of that is squarely on Sony.
ren_suzugamori_173: Product placement.
MrSVCD: Or it was a electrode or what is was called that looked like a pokeball.
ren_suzugamori_173: Mtg Crack
accountmadeforants: Whether that's sheer incompetence (very possible) or intentional is up for debate.
Metric_Furlong: more than zero
kusinohki: did heather name her alexa whatever "chat" ??
accountmadeforants: Pokémon is 10 cards, apparently?
ren_suzugamori_173: I depends on the year.
RvLeshrac: 10 cards in a Pokémon pack.
TheMerricat: 10
LordZarano: @mrsvcd Voltorb and Electrode iirc
EightBitDreams: Someone should use hackysack
kusinohki: tether ball, but at foot height
RvLeshrac: Yu-Gi-Oh boosters are 9-card packs.
PMAvers: Now, how much Mail Time can you get through while doing kickups?
Raiz0k: @kusinohki : that was my reaction as well, so we've been reduced to a crowdsourced voice agent apparently :D.
TheMerricat: @pmavers depends do we include spiders?
saiarcot895: Target (in the US) stopped selling all trading cards (except MtG, I think) because of safety reasons or something
Raiz0k: Aww.
ren_suzugamori_173: Story of my life.
Juliamon: There's a HUGE tcg theft problem in big box retailers
accountmadeforants: Plastic wrappers sometimes become adamantium, by random chance.
Raiz0k: @saiarcot895 : apparently, they've been some physical fights recently?
RvLeshrac: @saiarcot895 Pokémon and sports cards because someone was nearly shot over sports card sales limits.
saiarcot895: oh right, because they're trying to get rare valuable cards
beowuuf: O.O
TheMerricat: @saiarcot895 bad actors getting in fights over the last packs during a rarity event

LordZarano: bleep bleep bleep bloop ELecTric!
ItsAstridEh: I mean, Pikachu is one of the safest to say
accountmadeforants: Apropos of nothing: my favourite Pokémon is Mew. Love that weird long naked gerbil.
EightBitDreams: "Fluffy"

Kaorti: It's been more than 6 months
ren_suzugamori_173: Silicon
Lysander_Gustav: Also because of people buying up the resources to make microchips
ren_suzugamori_173: Paul Silicon
ANeMzero: need those onboard computers
iris_of_ether: Yeah, the supply chain for chips/parts is BAD right now
Raiz0k: Oh crap, it got so bad it's affecting *cars*?
GapFiller: yep
ren_suzugamori_173: Silicon is down.
buildalrr: A friend of mine bought a brand new truck model, and the dealership wasn't sure they wanted to sell it to him because of how rare that new model would be
Kaorti: since late last yar
Kaorti: *year
beowuuf: ah yes, the fun of car manufacturers panic buying electronic ciomponents...
saiarcot895: @Raiz0k GM shut down a plant because they didn't have supply for their chips
RvLeshrac: On top of manufacturing cards *themselves*, they also need a shitload of robots to build cars now because most of the automotive employees were fired over decades.
iris_of_ether: To be fair, cars have been messing up the supply chains for other industries before then, so. :)
RvLeshrac: "manufacturing cars*
accountmadeforants: Car manufacturers also assumed they could reasonably strong-arm silicon foundries in making space for them. Only to find out they weren't actually in any position to strong-arm silicon foundries, being but small children by comparison.
TheMerricat: Ian weeps
Raiz0k: @Raiz0k Next up it's home appliances, and then I guess we're just going full Mad Max...
GapFiller: Raiz0k time to break out the hovercraft then
RvLeshrac: @accountmadeforants That's the best part, where a car manufacturer is like "Look we need 200,000 chips you gotta make room for us" and they're like "nVidia just ordered 30 million"
iris_of_ether: Or the cell phone companies
ren_suzugamori_173: Ya because of Silicon.

Raiz0k: @accountmadeforants Ah, hah, hah, to be a fly on the wall on that meeting.
GapFiller: nalvLUL oh Paul rub it in why dont yr
The_Color_Twelve: lrrPAUL katesWine
Kaorti: Apple is monopolizing a *ton* of the chip manufacturing capacity.
Raiz0k: @GapFiller But it's full of eels!
Lord_Hosk: One of the biggest reasons for the silicon shortage is because of all the smart home bullcrap that is uselessly taking up chips. your smart toaster, smart fridge, smart coffee maker smart microwave, smart dryer, smart dishwasher smart lights Alexas and Ihomes are the reason you cant have 3070s
josh___something: Paul <3 XD
NovaTiempo: There are comments on youtube? huh.
RvLeshrac: So when we see someone say "You're right" we should just assume it is Heather under a sock?

Juliamon: "Don't engage the trolls" applies to all fields

beowuuf: and now, the end is near, and so we face, the final question (poll)
TheMerricat: Chat you all are beautiful. Stay safe, well and happy!

maxthefourth: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Friday Night Paper Fight (The LRR crew plays Magic the Gathering! This week, Gladiator! Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Fri 05:00 PM PDT (1:34 from now).
Metric_Furlong: beowuuf tbh, given the lack of responses I'm honestly thinking about whether this might actually be the last one I do :p
beowuuf: lrrHEATHER lunarj1Heart
beowuuf: @Metric_Furlong aww :(
beowuuf: anyway, night chat!
TheMerricat: I can't do the polls during stream on mobile because unlike just switching apps where twitch does picture in picture it closes completely if I launch a link from chat :(
Metric_Furlong: ah, the joys of modern technology :p
Metric_Furlong: but really the slow death of Chat as a community probably made it inevitable, in the end
LordZarano: Discord killed the Twitch Chat star
Raiz0k: Wait, what?
Metric_Furlong: LordZarano possibly, although I don't know if that's entirely the case
BasilHunter: @Metric_Furlong I filled ou the poll, but I'm not sure what it was for
Metric_Furlong: Raiz0k referring to how the off-stream chat doesn't really have the same presence it did in earlier years
Metric_Furlong: BasilHunter it's for arranging my 'to-watch' list - all the options are fake titles for real shows
BasilHunter: ah ok
Raiz0k: @Metric_Furlong Oh yeah, that's true, the cutoff sometimes is downright eerie.
Juliamon: From a modding perspective we prefer offstream chat move to Discord, where there are more active mods
Juliamon: If people start fighting in here there's way less of a chance we're gonna see it
Metric_Furlong: like, back when I started doing these (which was, I think early 2017 late 2016) you'd normally get around 20-or-so people hanging around in the time surround stream slots
Metric_Furlong: whereas these days it's not even guaranteed I can get 20 responses even during the stream crowd
Raiz0k: Makes sense, it's an issue of persistence, since here it's just per-stream whereas as I imagine on the Discord it's per-channel.
Metric_Furlong: Juliamon I know, although it's not a topic I really want to get into much
Juliamon: (heck, it's partly how I got to BE a mod--I was always hanging out in the off-times and able to catch problems when they started)
