I keep hoping to use the social networks for something else. I'd really love to talk about games, music, etc etc. But somehow it always turns political. Don't follow me if you don't want to see potentially either or completely at random.

The fucking Times. It follows up yesterday's awful poll with another. That they even asked this question is evidence of the bias--the agenda--in their poll. Who made age an "issue"? The credulous Times falling into the right-wing's projection. This is not journalism. Shameful.
I hypothesize there exists an "Alexa Quine"— a set of syllables or asemic sound-frequency combinations that if spoken/played to an Alexa, will result in the Alexa playing on its speakers a response Q which, if heard by a second Alexa in the same room, will cause the second Alexa to respond with Q, thus causing the first Alexa to repeat Q again, thus placing the two Alexi into a loop

CDC ditches 5-day COVID isolation, argues COVID is becoming flu-like
The agency released a unified "practical" guidance for respiratory viruses.
With the new CDC guidelines, people will wrongly get the idea that if you don't have a fever, you can't spread COVID, which is wrong.
It is very common for people to spread COVID when they don't have symptoms, and they may be contagious for weeks.
The new CDC guidelines force people back to work while contagious and promote dangerous misinformation about COVID that will lead to further mass death https://www.cnn.com/2024/03/01/health/cdc-covid-isolation-recommendations/index.html
“It’s undermining the whole rest of the public health system. Because what people are hearing is, ‘Actually, diseases aren’t as bad as we’d said they were, and we don’t actually need to do anything. It’s not actually that bad if some people die.’” https://www.cnn.com/2024/03/01/health/cdc-covid-isolation-recommendations/index.html
More evidence that repeat #COVID19 infections are dangerous as the virus mutates, and the CDC has decided to loosen guidance.
Public health is dead. It's now popular health--not what people should do, but what they might consider doing. That means it's up to you to protect the health of those you love.
If you get chronically ill, the CDC won't pay your bills, protect your job, or aid you in any way. You face the consequences, not the CDC. Make better decisions, please.
Thank u Will. And yes, this is how conspiracy theories and smear campaigns work! It’s exhausting to be targeted in this way just for doing my job.

Microsoft is unifying DLSS, FSR, and XeSS into DirectSR. This should mean that the game developer only needs to implement DirectSR, and we should get all three.
