Found a way to stream movies to ya'll 24/7 like the old Mogulus days. It uses rabb.it which streams a virturalized Firefox instance. I have it set to play war movies from my Plex server on shuffle.


To watch in HD, at the bottom of the screen press the LD and switch to HD. it allows you to do this once as guest before it wants you to make an account but you can just open the thing up in a private browsing window to watch in HD again as a guest.

If you guys are up to it, I can change it up to requested movies for designated movie nights.

There used to be a spring not to far from the top of Mt Rogers, made staying overnight up there really convenient if you had a good water filter. On night in late summer of '93 I was camping up there and there was some fog. It settled in the valleys blocking when little nearby light pollution existed back then and the sky too up the darkest backgrounds I've ever seen east of Mississipi, the Milky Way stopped being a broad haze and took on texture from the thousands of individually visible 6th and 7th magnitude stars. The people who are really dedicated to dark sky stargazing (its a thing, you be surprised how many people are into it) say you can't skies like that any further east than western Nebraska.
Its a nice spot, too bad the rest of the state turned into such an unlivable hellhole

72nd Anniversary of Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima - On Aug. 6, 1945, the atomic bomb dropped by the Enola Gay Boeing B-29 detonated, killing an estimated 140,000 people. Three days later, the U.S. dropped a second bomb on the city of Nagasaki, killing an estimated 75,000. Within weeks, Japan surrendered.

About 50,000 people, including representatives from 80 nations, gathered for an annual ceremony at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park Sunday, reports The Japan Times.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called for global cooperation to end nuclear weapons.
"For us to truly realize a world without nuclear weapons, the participation of both nuclear weapon states and non-nuclear weapon states is necessary," he said.
Last month, the United Nations reached its first agreement to ban nuclear weapons. But Japan, along with the nine nuclear-armed nations, including the United States, refused to take part in the negotiations and the vote.
Critics of the treaty, including the United States, say it does nothing to counter the "grave threat posed by North Korea's nuclear program." Member states can sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons next month; if ratified, it will be put into effect 90 days later, reports The New York Times.
Japan already adheres to a policy of not possessing, producing or allowing nuclear weapons on its territory. It is the only country to have ever come under nuclear attack. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/08/06/541885092/japan-calls-for-denuclearized-world-on-72nd-anniversary-of-hiroshima

Sunday marked 72 years since the U.S. dropped one of two atomic bombs on Japan. On the eve of the anniversary, organizers of a peace event lit up torches on floats on the Motoyasu River next to the Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima.

>Regarding ITAR (have to comply)
>"80% receivers will never qualify for NFA “tax stamp” status due to the fact that it’s never been registered with the ATF, because doing so would require the possession of a manufacturer license.(7,10,11 just one not all) Also, you must pay the excise tax of 11% of the value of the firearm to the internal revenue service and you must be in compliance with (ITAR) international traffic in arms regulations this is controlled by the Department of State."

80% lowers are illegal because RCMP just decided so a few weeks ago. To any other canuck here, my condolences, and please hand over any sufficiently large pieces of wood, plastic, or metal that could potentially be milled into an AR lower to the horse police.

What do you think about the possibility that the entire leadership of the Republican party has been infiltrated by America-hating communists? I don't entirely doubt it. It explains some things about Republicans, particularly their failure to ever do much to actually shrink the size of government when they're in power, or to grant more power to states or shrink the deficit.
Thats the kind of stuff that they promise and why we vote for them, but they never delivered it yet. Last time they had the reigns of power we got a ton of new debt, the Patriot act & all the domestic surveillance that went along with it. Thats like opposite of what everyone wanted right? Everyone except for America-hating communists, that is.

Was there any doubt smart guns suck balls? I mean I'm not against smart guns as a concept, hell I'd probably want one if I had kids. But the tech to make an effective and reliable one is just not there.

Of course anti-gunners would make the argument smart gun tech sucks because of "gun nuts" blocking attempts though in our defense too many anti-gunners see smart guns as the ultimate gun control, a gun that the benevolent government can shut off with the press of a button. I bet they thought this was a much better idea when the person was Obama, probably not such a good idea now that Trump would have it.

Oh well, still looking forward to the day I can play MP3s on my gun and jailbreak it to run Doom.

Oh, I thought you are talking about these smart guns.

You only need to engineer it properly. This is a commercial product, and people go for cheapest and most simple decisions, even if that defeats the entire purpose in the hindsight. People pay additional value for "safety" that simply isn't there, but since they still believe in it, nobody really tries to jailbreak it.

Why did the terminator need laser sighting on his .45?
Any computing platform with the type of power that the terminator had should be able to do the type of billiard ball physics invoked in aiming a handgun with ease. He wouldn't have even needed to use the iron sights, so going for the extra bulk of the laser sight makes no sense at all.

Its a bit awkward thanks to the armor and how the helmet juts out but I can get my peepers lined up with the scope of my shitty ass converted hasbro blaster (like in this picture >>110378) though I do kinda have to angle it.

Of course as you point out mostly Stormtroopers hip fire, even Clones hip fire. Thanks to the electronic bits in their helmets they don't need to shoulder their weapons.

I've actually thought about trying to MacGyver a similar set-up for a helmet, gut a few cellphones for the screens and cameras and see if I could rig it up where I'm seeing through the cameras. I'll get right on it after I'm done with the 10 bajillion other products I've got to do.

My theory has always been that he left it on as a redundant/backup sight. In the event his computerized targeting became useless or out of calibration, the laser would provide him with an alternate aiming method to take up the slack until he could recalibrate. See early 3rd act Robocop for an example of this.

Then again, in the first Terminator, the T-800 missed plenty of shots he should have made. During the first chase when the Terminator was in the cop car, he fired several shots from a close range with a 12 gauge shotgun that should have hit either Reese or Connor.

The advanced T-1000 didn't do much better. In the service corridors in the Galleria, when the T-800 used his body to shield John, the T-1000 seemed to have a two foot spread at a distance of what, 10 yards? A similar lack of accuracy was displayed at the mental hospital where they rescued Sarah, and again during the helicopter chase near the end, when the T-1000 had four hands, it took him at least 2 full magazines from an MP5K to score a single (nonfatal) hit on Sarah in the SWAT van.

So....either we say "lol plot armor," or we accept that maybe the Terminators' targeting systems aren't all that great after all...although despite the above anecdotes, they do otherwise generally seem to display fine marksmanship against cops and cop cars.
>> No. 110405 ID: 19518e
I chalked up that lack of accuracy to the lack of sensitivity in the human skin to the metal endoskeleton.

The machine can be as aimbot as it wants, but the skin adds an error or mushy flesh, and there's probably not much nerve ending feeling from the skin to the robot parts so if the grip changes a little, the robot will have a hard time knowing where the gun is exactly in its hand. Basically, it would be like trying to shoot while on local anesthetics with big gloves on, even if you're Jerry Miculek you'll probably have a slightly harder time hitting a target that's moving around/shooting back. Human interface and all. I assume the actual combat Terminators with no skin are much deadlier with their plasma rifles as they have none of that to deal with.

Maybe that's why he wanted a laser sight 1911.

>why doesn't the T800 look down his sights on his other guns
The techbabble part of me would probably say something like the Terminators' targeting systems are all programmed the same, skin or no skin, so they normally don't use sights as their metal on metal plasma rifle to Terminator interface could be straight up aimbot targeting, and they hipfire to prevent the plasma rifle from blocking their field of view or something. When they get skin, they're more for infiltration than actual full battlefield combat, so the loss of accuracy probably wasn't considered by Skynet.

>why doesn't the T1000 have aimbot power since he isn't a robot in a meat suit

Maybe the T1000 piloting a chopper to follow an erratic truck while trying to shoot it was a little much for its targeting systems? Plot armor is most likely.
