Tonight was the last time I would perform a base HQ. I still have hero upgrades but that will take sometime. The main thing is that my primary resources pretty much will be dedicated to harvesting crystals, at least until some new level for HQs come out.
I haven’t done a Diablo 3 write up for sometime mostly because there hasn’t been enough content nor interest from me. But I will say that Season 13 has been enjoyable overall even though I had a slow initial start. I want to discuss the current game and my overall thoughts on where the game should go from here.
With the Facebook data breach comes yet another data breach. The result is that the senate is starting to step in more seriously in pushing Facebook on protection over user privacy. On the outset, it seems as though the government wants to enforce a blanket policy for companies to allow users to own their data (with Facebook particularly in mind here). But is there more to this than meets the eye?
Yeah, this is another late review by me but I finally managed to watch The Last Jedi. Felt more like the Last Star Wars that ought to be created just because it was quite bad for the most part. As someone who grew up with Star Wars, it just breaks my heart as the quality of the series has plummeted. There was some redemption with Rogue One but the combination of Disney and a senile Lucas still maintaining a certain level of control has turned this beloved franchise into vomit dookie.
Today, we received a new update from Supercell for Boom Beach. The main content provided was changes to prototypes (including a few new ones that rotate, the times they last depending on the level and cost), a massive nerf to Pvt. Bullit and the Mega Crab (to name the major stuff). As always there were cries of QQ on the forums (reddit) and many unhappy campers. Some people also said “Boom Beach is dead!” Is it though?
While Mark Zuckerberg probably has little to do directly with Facebook’s recent data breach, we must ask whether or not the CEO of such a company should be held accountable for such a massive event. In reality, ever since the Enron scandal, publicly traded companies can persecute the CEO and CFO for things like insider trading that causes their shareholders to be mislead and lose significant value. While this area is not exactly the same, we must examine if a company that essentially has data on a good population of the earth should be held to similar standards, especially in this so-called information age.
If you’ve never seen the movie Office Space and you’re a tech worker, do yourself a huge favor and find a copy asap. The thing about this movie is how Mike Judge manages to create a movie about the “colorful” types of cast you often meet inside a white collared job situation. One of the most infamous that seems to exist in some form is the Bill Lumbergh type. From my experience, it feels like this middle management leech somehow manifests at virtually every single company I’ve worked at and probably has shown up at your spot.
Apparently, kids around the country are staging a 17 minute or so collective protest around 10am against allowing teachers to arm themselves in response to recent shootings. It’s a pretty crazy thought that the best solution from the government to deter shootings is by arming teachers, which is the essence of this walkout. But the fact that students are doing this on their own with mixed reactions made me want to write this post.
A few weeks ago I took Instagram off my phone. The number of ads playing had become unbearable to the point where it wasn’t worth keeping around. I still check out the website because I can use an adblocker but I feel that there’s no reason to use the mobile application. But at this stage the only two remaining social network applications I have retained on my phone are Snapchat and Twitter. And I never use Snapchat anymore. But what happened? Why am I going through social media withdrawal?
Jessica Jones season 2 was released on March 8th. I caught just the first episode the night it premiered and finished last night. Many people gave praise to the first season, especially the villain Kilgrave. How did season 2 hold up?
