Sony Releasing Updated PlayStation Move Controllers For PSVR
Sony chose not to refresh the design of its PlayStation Move motion controllers for the launch of PlayStation VR (PSVR) last year but, now nearing the headset’s first birthday, it’s decided that might’ve been a good idea after all.Yesterday we reported that Sony was releasing an updated PSVR model with a slightly improved design. There isn’t any major overhaul here. Instead, you get some slimmer wires, improved headphone integration and high dynamic range passthrough support. Spotted over on the Japanese PlayStation Blog, it looks like the same is true of the new Move controllers; the mini USB slots that were designed around the time of the PS3 have finally been swapped out for micro USB slots, and the battery life has been slightly improved.And that’s about that.While it’s always nice to get an upgrade, PSVR fans will likely agree that Move has far greater issues that we were hoping would be addressed. For starters, the lack of analog sticks can make controlling some games a challenge, especially considering PSVR only supports 180-degree controller tracking, meaning you can’t face away from the PlayStation Camera. Moreover, the single-camera setup for the platform means the controllers are susceptible to drifting, meaning they’ll move slightly even when you’re holding your hand still.Still, just because these updated devices are on the way, that doesn’t mean Sony isn’t working on some wholly new controllers too. Keep those fingers crossed.The Moves and the updated PSVR hit Japan on October 14th. We’re still waiting to find out when they’ll release elsewhere..special-buttons > * { text-align:left !important; } FacebookTwitterRedditMore

Met’s Waifu Pack - My first model release!
A selection of anime characters ported by me from MMD, as commissions. I added and edited many things, and also had to translate the skeletons, materials and flexes from Japanese, which means there may be errors, which you can feel free to report here or on SFMLab, and I’m sure I’ll fix them someday. Or not.
Below is the list of the characters included, with the universe each are from - their names link to the source of the model. Credits to the original authors for everything they’ve done(which is creating the models, textures and face flexes)

Contains a separate Blush and Mouth model, they might come useful.
Notes
Sakura’s hair had to be a separate model because it has too many bones. Just lock her head bone to the hair’s head or root bone and then apply the zero preset on the hair’s head bone. Then have fun posing that hair.
A bit of help with setting up the eyeposing: Here - Result

#lightculture#learnenglish@light_school
The new plastic Jane Austen tenner is coming into circulation this Thursday, September 14 – meaning time’s nearly up for the old paper ones.
The polymer note is the first British banknote with tactile information for blind and partially sighted people – and features author Jane Austen.
Austen knocks Charles Darwin off his slot on the note, and is now the only woman to feature on an English bank note, following the withdrawal of a paper £5 note featuring Elizabeth Fry.
The Bank of England says each new 10 pound note should last for around five years, compared to around two years for the paper note it is replacing.
The notes mark the 200th anniversary of author Jane Austen’s death.

"Ten pounds would have meant a lot to Jane Austen, about the same as 1,000 pounds would mean to us today," BoE (Bank of England) Governor Mark Carney said at the launch of the new note in Winchester.
Austen received a 10 pound publisher’s advance for her first novel and the new banknote bears a quotation ‘I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!’ from her later work, "Pride and Prejudice".

Kya Qusoor Hai Amala Ka is a Television Show airing on Star Plus which is an Indian remake of the well acclaimed and famous Turkish series "Fatmagul Sucu Ne" which means "What was Fatmagul's fault?"
Kya Qusoor Hai Amala Ka is the story of a rape victim Amala and her fight for justice against her wealthy culprits. The show is being axed by the channel on account of it getting low TRPs along with 3 other shows adjoining with it which are also of the afternoon slot.
What distinguishes Kya Qusoor Hai Amala Ka from these 3 shows and what makes it extremely important to save is the crucial fact that it is a remake. A channel enters into a contract for a remake with a specific clause in the agreement that it will not waver from it's original storyline. While the Turkish series rightfully reached it's end point with Fatmagul getting her rightful deserving justice Amala too deserves to get her justice. Rape is a HIGHLY important and paramount issue in India and having a show focusing on this sensitive and salient issue should be a matter of pride for the channel. Women having faced such atrocities look for solace in storylines like these that highlight and understand their struggles and anguish.
The show is excellent and it portrays the trauma and terror of a rape victim in an applauding manner. We request all who are reading this to sign this petition and help us save the show fron getting axed long before it's due time. The real fight for Amala's justice has JUST BEGUN and ending the show long before it delivers it's rightful message to it's viewers and serves justice at the pace where it is actually served in our country would be sheer cruelty on the part of the channel. We understand the fact that the show serves less TRP in the afternoons so we request the channel to shift it to a later slot like 5:30PM or 11:PM where the sensitive yet inspiring content of the show would be welcomed.
So do sign this petition and help us to save Kya Qusoor Hai Amala Ka so that a show that began on such a promising and striking note does not die off with a mere whimper.

Took a lonely feeling
Just to let the meaning
Sink like the sun goes down
Never close to heaven
Felt my feet were burning from the same red hot ground

There's blood on my hands,
There's blood on my hands
Yeah, there's blood

It's getting hard to listen
When the clock is ticking
Counting down the days gone by
Praying for an answer to another question
That will only leave you dry

You won't understand
With your head in the sand
No, you won't

But I'll curse the ground where you kneel
Till I grow my hair to my heels
Spike your water your wine
While you waste my precious time

Every time I'm drinking
Try to stop my thinking
About the things I've said and done
Stop the world from turning faster
Than I'm learning not to just hide and run

You won't understand
With your head in the sand
No, you won't

Love came and went faster than a penny spent in a slot machine
Nowhere near the devil, just somewhere in between you and me
Sworn to secrecy

And I'll curse the ground where you kneel
Till I grow my hair to my heels
Spike your water your wine

Yeah, there's blood on my hands,
There's blood on my hands
There's blood on my hands,
There's blood on my hands
Yeah, there's blood

But there's blood on my hands
Yeah, there's blood

Took a lonely feeling
Just to let the meaning
Sink like the sun goes down
Never close to heaven
Felt my feet were burning from the same red hot ground

Попробуем наоборот, несмотря на ужасный инглишъ:D

Круги на воде (Slot - Circles on water) eng ver.

Someoneve have went far away, someone just doesn't care;
They feel sorry and forgot tomorrow, like it's daydreams without loving someone
Someone have went upstairs,i mean they leaving out for ages;
And they watching and smile on us
Through the precious memory glass.

Chorus:
Let new day go on us by a cold of the skies to show beauty of dawn;
All things happens in this Universe, all rotates things in this Universe.
And returning to us and all circles on water come out
Nothing passes without a trace, nothing passes without a trace

Someone's random move, a fatal turn.
We each other on infinit spiral, lost again and again found
And it remains for us, a cold cities, a cold towns
Wait a moment when it will be warmer, run away then without a sorrow

Chorus:
Let new day go on us by a cold of the skies to show beauty of dawn;
All things happens in this Universe, all rotates things in this Universe.
And returning to us and all circles on water come out
Nothing passes without a trace, nothing passes without a trace

Moment of revelation, mystery, enigma
The touch of God, the union of delight and fright.
I tried so many times, but in this very blink
My stone flies into the water, and that's always in circle's heart
.
Tried to throw from the south, from the west, at sunset of the day
In the morning, from different angles, stones of different strain.
With the other hand, in a jump, blindly.
Some kind of trap, I still get the circle's heart, which is the year.

Chorus(x2):
Let new day go on us by a cold of the skies to show beauty of dawn;
All things happens in this Universe, all rotates things in this Universe.
And returning to us and all circles on water come out
Nothing passes without a trace, nothing passes without a trace

A woman from Hawaii claimed almost $11m after betting just $3 on a penny slot machine in Las Vegas this month.

The #Wynn Las Vegas #casino and hotel on the Las Vegas Strip confirmed that the woman from Oahu, who has decided to remain anonymous, won a payout of $10,777,270.51 at around 9pm on Sunday 21 August 2016, while playing on a #Megabucks Wynn Wheel slot machine, which takes $3 bets.

The game was created especially for the Wynn Resort, which is named after its owner, Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn. The game features a portrait of Mr Wynn, 74. It does not pay out in coins like traditional slot machines, so the woman was not in fact drowned in pennies after winning the jackpot.
winnings, meaning at least $1m of her winnings will go into the Aloha State’s coffers.

Despite her impressive win, the woman is far from a record-breaker. The biggest recorded jackpot in Vegas history was won by a 25-year-old software engineer from Los Angeles, who claimed a payout of $39,710,826.36 from a $100 bet on another Megabucks machine at the Excalibur resort in March, 2003.

You Cannot Make It Perfect
Thus, nothing that anyone does can affect the outcome of a slot machine as soon as the lever is pulled or the button is pressed. In reality, the knobs are an illusion. Modern slot machines are computer controlled and the computer generates the result immediately. Consequently, it does not mean that the time of the button is pressed, whether or not any oranges, bars, lemons or jackpot symbols are devised. A part of each slot machine’s program is to make it pay less than it takes over time. You must also remember that there is no “near”. You win or win you too. Missing that ‘third beam’ by one cross on a slot machine is also an illusion. In short, the longer your slot machines play, the more money you lose.

# What does GSM mean in a cell phone? The GSM system uses TDMA to split a frequency into time slots. Probably the most useful thing to know about the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) is that it is an international standard. If you travel in Europe and many other parts of the world, GSM is the only type of cellular service available. Originally, the acronym GSM stood for Groupe Spécial Mobile. a group formed by the Conference of European Posts and Telegraphs (CEPT) in 1982 to research the merits of a European standard for mobile telecommunications.

Ok, something new here, everyone. #Pictophile news. If you don't know what Pictophile is, it is a relatively unpopular meme app that is known for its original content, small, yet active community and mostly good, new memes being submitted there. However, several days ago pretty much all of these positive traits got proven wrong, as users @ Bork and @ Blood kept shoving the "Sans Undertale" memes down people's throats.
Sans Undertale is supposed to be an ironic meme making fun of Undertale fan drawings, where Sans is poorly drawn, but more human-like than the character's original design.

This character gets inserted into various viral comics, that, by the way, are usually very outdated, in order to parody fan art.

The problem is, the original image featuring Sans Undertale is literally Sans photoshopped onto some irl photo. If actual meaningful, original, high-quality memes sometimes don't make their way to the app's front page, I highly doubt this one would do it on it's own. Many users suppose that it got bumped. Not to mention that the earliest comment that I've been able to load there was dated 06/02/2017 [US standard], meaning that this post stayed on the front page for 11 days. While usually posts go to page 2 of front page after 24h.

But even that isn't the worst thing about Sans Undertale. I wouldn't mind if a slot for a potentially very well-made funny meme would be taken by this "artpiece", however it also spawned a number of similar memes, which, too, got bumped. Now, the front page is full of meaningless, outdated, boring, unfunny images that show no signs of stopping and getting out of popular page.

Something has to be done about this nonsense, I'm getting really sick of the app becoming progressively more and more useless and @ Bork having an unfair advantage from the side of admins. Which, by the way, should've banned the user for spamming a long time ago.

I just googled the meaning of "mulkvisti" and Google Translate says it means "dickhead" in English or "Blödmann" in German. Is that really how they refer to their not-so-much-hated-ones? Any Finns here who could back that up or bust the myth?

Johnny Depp keeps claiming that his surname means "idiot" in German - which is true. But as it seems it's not of German origin in his case, but merely a malapropism of "Dieppe". One of Depp's ancestors, a French Huguenot, carried that name and it is likely that his surname derived from the place name Dieppe, which is a town by the Atlantic coast in the Normandy region of France. Dieppe was even called "Deppae" in the Middle Ages and if you compare the wikipedia entry on the town to Depp's ancestry, you can actually find the exact time slot there when his French ancestors headed to the New World (17th century).

So why do I mention this here in a post about supposed Finnish gloominess?
Well, "Depp" is an insult in German, but you can also use it as a rather rough term of endearment. For example if your brother or co-worker or buddy (Depp is always male) f**ks up something and you just pat him on the shoulder and say "You stupid a**hole!" and then you laugh together.
In this case "Depp" would be the stupid a**hole that you like and understand because he's YOUR stupid a**hole.
Again I need to ask the Finns: Can mulkvisti be understood as a term of endearment in a similar way?

Next (and, possibly, our last) time we'll be discussing a famous comical short story, "The Kugelmass Episode" by Woody Allen. Unlike all the other stories we read, it's a funny one.

Another thing: I really enjoy our meetings, but I can't go on if you don't come to them. Which means if the turnout for the next week is 1-2 people, the meeting will be the last one. Which brings me to my two points:

» Come to the meeting and bring a friend! Chances are you'll actually like it.

» Speak up! If you seriously want to come, but the day/time is inconvenient, let me know (in comments/by message) and we'll do our best to find a time slot which suits us all. Could be morning, could be afternoon, could be even evening.

Depending on what you tell me in the comments section (you can also message/email me), I'll post the day and time of the next meeting later this week.

(The picture is a beautiful cover of The New Yorker issue where the Allen's story was first published.)

See you soon

Dear all

UPDATED: We have now invited you to choose your preferred time slots for the interview. We strongly encourage those who received preliminary invitations/confirmations before 3 am Sunday to do their very best to choose a time slot on Tuesday or Wednesday as you had an extra day to prepare for the interview. Those who received emails with confirmations on Sunday evening are welcome to choose their preferred slot on any of the four days Tuesday through Thursday (please note that the moment when we sent those confirmations by no means serves as an indication of our preference; instead, we sent those in the order in which we were able to assess your essays).

Please choose only one time slot per one person.

The interview will consist of two parts:

(1) your presentation of the position of one of the parties in the case you wrote your essay on (UPD: you are free to choose the side you want to argue for). The presentation shall follow the Vis moot format (for those unfamiliar we posted a recording of the latest final earlier in this group, and you can find more examples of Vis Moot finals on youtube). Coaches may interrupt you and ask questions at any time. A total of 6 minutes will be allotted for the presentation. We encourage you to critically consider and develop the arguments in your essay and if necessary augment them with further research.

(2) a discussion of your background, motivation and plans for next year.

PLEASE BRING YOUR PASSPORTS - you will need them to enter the building.

Where: Norton Rose Fulbright, Moscow (White Square office center, Butyrsky Val str. 10 A, 3rd floor) - we added a couple of masterpiece drawings to help you find your way ;)

Please do not be late and preferably arrive 15 minutes in advance to the time slot that you choose (should you arrive too early, there's a Starbucks, Le Pain Quotidien and many other places nearby).

Do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions!

Kind regards,
Vis Team Coaches

AT20 Giveaway Day 9: ASRock Gives Your Ryzen an X370 Taichi Motherboard Welcome everyone to the start of the third week of our 20 day giveaway celebration of AnandTech’s 20th anniversary. We have a full schedule this week, so that means 9 more giveaways between now and Friday.

Kicking things off for the week is one of our long-time motherboard partners, ASRock. With AMD’s Ryzen CPUs selling so well – a welcome change for the battered AMD – Ryzen-compatible Socket AM4 motherboards are now in demand. So ASRock has sent over one of their X370 Taichi motherboards for us to give away to someone looking to complete their Ryzen system.

The AnandTech 20th Anniversary Celebration – ASRock Giveaway

ASRock X370 Taichi Motherboard

ASRock’s X370 Taichi is a full ATX board, giving it room for 3 PCIe x16 slots, and another 2 PCIe x1 slots. Along with the traditional form factor, the board also sports a duo of M.2 slots – one sporting SATA and PCIe 3, the other sporting purely PCIe 2. ASRock has also added several third-party controllers to the board, including an unnamed (but likely ASMedia) controller for USB 3.1 (Gen 2) support, an Intel I211AT controller for GigE networking, an Intel 802.11ac dual-band WiFi controller (on an includes M.2 stick), and a Realtek ALC 1220 for audio.

Rounding out the package, ASRock has equipped their board with their “steel slots” PCIe braces for two of the PCIe x16 slots to better support heavy video cards, along with a 16-phase power delivery system for the CPU. And while the board itself doesn’t sport RGB LEDs, it does include a pair of controlled headers for adding RGB lighting strips. Meanwhile on the software side of matters, the board uses ASRock’s latest-generation UEFI firmware, supporting features such as Instant Flash and Crashless BIOS.

Finally, as with our other giveaways, today’s giveaway is only open for 48 hours, so be sure to enter soon. However please note that for legal reasons, we’re only able to open these giveaways to residents of the United States.

Good luck to everyone! And be sure to check in this afternoon for our next giveaway.

AMD will be releasing a new AGESA microcode update this month, this is now being worked on by the motherboard manufacturers. The new microcode (which is located in your BIOS) will further enhance memory compatibility.

This news has reached us by way of Gigabyte. A technical marketing employee has been explaining that AGESA 1.0.0.6 for Ryzen processors will enhance memory compatibility with high clocked DIMMs and would open up 20 new memory registers.

Gigabyte employee: Wish I could drop in and give you guys a new BIOS but I don't have them yet. Latest word is they are working on a new set with AGESA 1006.
Just to recap these are the issue being worked on:

For those looking for IOMMU fixes we are hopefully going to have an option to force boot off a specific PCIe slot. Its not the grouping fix, but a work around for now.
Disable LAN (Per request)
Disable Audio (Per request)
"ROM Image update" (Being worked on with AMI, no ETA)
Cold boot / Wont boot. Have to re-flash BIOS. (people have referred to this as "soft brick")
AGESA 1006 - improve memory (Got high hopes for this one. Going to enable 20+ memory register)
That means there will be another 20 memory kits added and supported. AMD back in April already released AGESA 1.0.0.4a which brought slightly better performance, lower memory latency and also increased memory support as well as faster bootup (post) times.
As you can see AGESA 1006 is in the works and should see the light of day with initial Beta BIOS updates soon. Btw the Gigabyte employee mentions AGESA 1006 twice, he could actually mean 1005 as the last AGESA release from AMD was 1004a.

AC generators or alternators operate on the same fundamental principles of electromagnetic induction as DC generators.
Practical AC generators are usually equipped with a small auxiliary generator called an exciter. The exciter supplies direct current for the electromagnets used to create the magnetic field in the AC generator.
The armature of an AC generator consists of copper wire wound in hundreds of coils around slots cut in an iron core. The electromagnets consist of copper bar wound around iron cores.

In most AC generators the armature is the stator and the field structure is the rotor.

The slip rings are used to carry the direct current from the exciter-generator to the electromagnets in the field structure. Outside wires connected to the armature coils take the alternating current induced in the armature directly from it. This kind of AC generator is also called a synchronous generator because it generates a voltage that has a frequency proportional to, or synchronized with, the speed of the rotor.
The field structure in an AC generator may have only one electromagnet, but it often has two or more. This means that the magnetic field produced by the field structure will have two or more poles (two for each electromagnet). The generator produces one complete cycle of current each time a pair of poles passes an armature coil instead of one cycle for each complete revolution of the field structure. Depending on the number of electromagnets, these generators can produce one or more cycles for each revolution of the field structure or of the armature.

SM Line and HMM pose risks to market recovery.

The launch of SM Line in the transpacific trade and Hyundai Merchant Marine’s (HMM) reduced east-west presence could pose a risk market recovery – while the new alliance structure is leading to ‘short term turmoil’ in the markets, said a senior analyst.
Neil Dekker, Drewry director of container research, said in a webinar hosted by Drewry Shipping Consultants about the container market outlook: “There are a few big changes – 2M is bringing in another player (HMM) and there is another player in the transpacific: SM Line. There is a little bit of fragility and risks to recovery if more supply comes in and lines get more aggressive to hang on to market share. HMM is not now a big player in the east-west trade, it is really only a slot charterer so it still has a bit to prove and prove it still has got a presence… so there is the potential to be a little bit aggressive on the commercial side.”
Looking at the new alliances, he commented that they have had to cope with an exceptionally large amount of extra work to re-design their networks in time for 1 April. This includes moving ships into position, in some cases from alliance to alliance across nearly 100 weekly services in the core east-west trade lanes. “Vessels have had to meet new berthing windows, sometimes at new ports or terminals to meet transhipment and feeder connections. This huge task alone means that logically there would always be some short term turmoil for the market and shippers,” Mr Dekker continued.
He pointed out that from a structural perspective, there are both positives and negatives because while there may be fewer options for certain port pairs, on the plus side there are new direct options for shippers. A direct call from the Ocean alliance at Jakarta in the transpacific trade is one such example.
Mr Dekker added that additional services such as the new 2M loop in the Asia-North Europe trade may give extra slots for 2M (plus HMM and Hamburg Sud) customers, but that “it remains to be seen yet if the additional weekly operational capacity will adversely affect the supply/demand balance and/or spot rates”.
