It's really not and it isn't just because of the controls. Like I get that this was probably the first time lots of people were exposed to these ideas but it still felt like a kids game in certain weird ways while approaching very mature ideas, all of which I think helped it fill this niche at the turn of the century to where most people view it with a kind of nostalgia goggles. The overwhelming impression that I get is people specifically enjoyed it because they were under 20 when they first tried it. Like, probably 15 year olds.

I've already written at length here about than once about why I think Deus Ex sucks I think? but suffice it to say that the real problem hobbling it to me is the fact it's not that original and is basically just a 90s kitchen sink that came years too late and arrived just in time to seize on very obviously dated elements like The Matrix and The X Files and goth fashion just enough that probably it still gives people nostalgia, but that it was not remotely groundbreaking either for narrative outside the vidya medium at least nor especially for the mechanics.

Frankly the thing that I found most telling about everybody who raves how good it is is the fact that they try to say it was innovative but they never ever seem to bring up System Shock. Why? Because they were probably too young to have played it.

This has all made me realize that Eidos is basically a bunch of hacks who quite frankly just got really lucky and somehow popularized their game whereas the makers of things like Marathon and System Shock did not, most probably due in part to the fact that only a select small number of us even had access to gaming in the early to mid 90s and that by 2000 vidya while still being considered a "nerd" thing was already mainstreamed and popularized. But when you look at a game like System Shock and SS2 the whole argument that it was "innovative" completely falls apart. Having damaged limbs is in fact the sole defining thing I can even think of and many of the augmentations are not useful in fact I'm pretty sure I finished it with mostly just using heal. Almost all the other elements were pioneered instead by the System Shock games.

I would like to have a thread to discuss various types of architecture.
There are lots of oddities out there, and many interesting things to talk about.
I think that I will make some stream-of-consciousness posts.

Earl Young was an American architect who, without formal training, developed his own regional style in the midwestern united states.

Earl used nothing but local materials, and his homes look very romantically medieval, but with modern fixtures. They have been called "mushroom homes", or "hobbit homes".

I often rode passed the Hundertwasser house in Plochingen by train, but this way you can only see the tower. I actually never had to get out there and I never did just to look at the building to be quite honest.

There's also the Hundertwasser-Bahnhof in Uelzen where you have to change if you take the cheap train from Hannover to Hamburg. Walking inside of it feels a bit like being at a techno/goa festival imo.

These are not typical buildings, but Hundertwasser. I mean Germans like kitsch if you consider what the average German equivalent of home depot is selling as decor articles as kitsch and I would say it is. Houses are here are either ugly functional or just pale. You have some exceptions though ofc. Older 19th century houses or some modern stuff can be quite nice, it's about the shapes here more or less.

In addition to the mosaic tile designs, I can see his famous uneven floors in the pic. ("an uneven floor is a melody to the feet" t.Hundertwasser). They should have made an artistic ATM for that location. The grey one seems a bit out of place.
It's strange that such a colorful place is used for a common thing like changing trains. Strange, but in a way also right. Art shouldn't be restricted to museum walls. Put it out there, where it can become part of daily life. Look at the Maishima Incineration Plant(Japan). They process garbage, but that doesn't mean the building can't have an incredible Hundertwasser exterior. I read that they built that as part of a failed bid to win the 2008 Olympics. They wanted to make the city more beautiful. They didn't win the right to host the Games, but now they have a garbage dump that's so cool it attracts tourists:

Rate my EVROPIVMS.

-The protestant war lasted 11 years and had a total of 4.6 million military casualties, I dismantled the Holy Roman Empire during the war.
-I focused most of my development in Konigsberg and Danzig, Berlin is just some irrelevant provincial shithole.
-Moscow collapsed in the most horrible way possible, a big chunk of their former regions have been converted to islam, orthodoxy seems doomed.
-I released an AI kiev a while back from lithuania and gave them a 6/6/6 ruler, they seem to be doing well in pushing back the tatars.
-Protestant Toulouse,
-Burgundy alive and well in the Netherlands
-The UK owned Normandy, Northern Brittany and Gascony for a hell of a long time, only recently did France manage to push them out.
-The Danish-Swedish union alive and well, they might unite into Scandinavia soon.
-The turks ended up bordering me, so I pushed them back and released Nitra and Transylvania.
-Albania somehow managed to join the (now dismantled) HRE, and have thus survived the turks. Austria revoked their guarantee so they're about to get boned.

Though it's still better than vanila where you can use mana and make the Netherlands more developed in absolute numbers than the entire China, which is ridicolous. In MEIOU pops actually allow poor but big countries like China, India or Russia to be great powers til the end of game. China is basically guaranteed to be number one great power thanks to its massive population without player's manipulation

I tried to mod this for myself by reducing the urban gravity modifiers. Didn't end up working, the spaghetti code is too difficult to navigate given the amount of time I was willing to devote to it.

The urban pop figures aren't actually that bad in M&T, they're only off by about a factor of 2 in the worst case scenarios. Then again, I don't play in money-flushed regions, so maybe you can make it absolutely ridiculously OP. But IRL the Netherlands had about 50% of its population in cities at some point, so heavy urbanization of small countries like that should be possible.

It's not really viable unless you start in a very fertile region and completely devastate the rest of the subcontinent. Of course, it's not a real simulation, but you've got to admire what the did using EU4 as the base, and, as I have already mentioned, they're working on an overhaul of the population and building systems which should make it more realistic.

Meme idea for a run but whatever, had fun nonetheless. Started off as a custom nation in the Azores, Palaiologos dynasty.
I'll probably convert this to Vic2 and make the Greek provinces in the balkans 95% turk to simulate a mass Greek migration to the Americas.

-Red outline marks former British colonies, Britain declared war on me twice in a bid to expand, I took all their North American colonies in the process
-declared war on New Spain to expand further west

On a side note, I never understood why they had to remove the colonist slider on game setup present in EU3, seeing the Pacific coast colonised all the way up to Alaska by 1700 is retarded, they should at least give you the option to make colonising slower.

Florida reported a single-day record of 156 deaths, along with nearly 14,000 new cases, mirroring a broader trend this week that has seen the national death rate spike. The seven-day rolling average for new deaths has risen to 730, a more than 21 percent increase from a week ago.

There is value in the US economy, but we are in a period where stock price has diverged about 2 standard deviations away from the fundamentals.

The world is also entering monetary policy 3. Interest rates are 0 or negative. Lots of pressure to maintain social programs and prevent a global depression meaning the easiest way out is through money printing.

If you believe that the economy has fake value, I would suggest looking at creating a portfolio of industrial sector stocks, commodity sector stocks, and REIT's. Then you can balance it out with precious metal and broad-commodity based futures.

That way you will be less correlated to the speculative sectors of the economy and your portfolio is diversified away from currencies and more towards prices of material goods.

If those old memes were actually worth it, someone would necessarily saved them and quite possibly reused them. Otherwise they're just garbage best left forgotten. And while it may be difficult to find something on torrents, it's still not impossible. I remember the VHS era, which reached its peak in the 90s here: rent stores only had the newest blockbusters and other popular stuff available, with maybe a bit of beloved Soviet classics. If you wanted something more rare, you were out of luck. Nowadays you can find pretty much anything if you're persistent enough, bar maybe the artsiest shit possible (but you wouldn't be able to find that artsy shit in the pre-Internet era either). As for the signal loss, it's a non-problem for digitized data, since error detection and correction exists.

Well I'm heatin mah harbl for one thing. I do know that part of it is because of not knowing how to look properly but I semi-frequently counter situations where I cannot for the life of me find those not even really old memes. I also fairly less frequently but still regularly enough encounter situations where I can't find some kind of game, old movie, or other type of media on TPB. The network itself might be strong but the number of failed nodes both hardware and wetware is constantly increasing. Good example with the cells btw mate but you actually also just pointed out that problem at a biological level: aging.

Like the problem of corrupted biological data can often become so extreme that you wind up with stuff like cancers multiplying unchecked and faulty or failing hardware throughout your subsystems. While this might work in the grand scheme of things somehow, at the purely data level it is also clearly suboptimal. The idea that no good traits ever become lost forever is a clearly patently false one that shows the fragility of organic data storage systems as well. To be clear, at this point I'm beginning to touch on the astrophysical concept of "information." I saw a pretty neat video on how one could theoretically use the surface of a Singularity to store nearly infinite data but I forget now pretty sure it was kurzgesasgt.

Anyway our only real backstop against all that is those lonely few intrepid autists who do things like work in archival and try to save that aging stuff like this guy

So if you don't know, European ancestry can almost all be divided between ancient hunter-gatherers, Neolithic farmers from Anatolia, and Bronze Age steppe nomads from southern Russia/Ukraine. This genetics blogger has calculated the percentages of each for most northern and eastern European populations:
https://eurogenes.blogspot.com/2020/07/ancient-ancestry-proportions-in-present.html
It's of no real importance if you're not a mouthbreathing kohltard, but it is interesting to think about how such a large percentage of our* ancestry can be traced back to small groups of hunter-gatherers huddled around the Dnieper or Volga 6000 years ago (before they the first proto-khanz and started the proud tradition of raping half of Eurasia from horseback).

*IIRC this actually applies to all of our regular posters, since Kazakhs inherited a lot of their ancestry from Scythians.

While this is pretty shit (I cannot even imagine how one proclaims himself Christian while being literally so dumb you think that Hebrew is "Sanskrit") however it poses some interesting ideas, one of which involves mirrors.

What are the ideas and folklore in different cultures regarding mirrors? I did not know this about the Chinese for instance however it has always struck me as rather common sense that spiritual beings can use it to push through to this side.

There ia a recent NYT article about a government program which investigates unknown aerial phenomena, ostensibly to ensure they don't belong to foreign military. That seems simple enough, but the headlines are coming from a statement made by Eric Davis, an astrophysicist who assisted that program in identfying physical artifacts:

>No crash artifacts have been publicly produced for independent verification. Some retrieved objects, such as unusual metallic fragments, were later identified from laboratory studies as man-made.
>Eric W. Davis, an astrophysicist who worked as a subcontractor and then a consultant for the Pentagon U.F.O. program since 2007, said that, in some cases, examination of the materials had so far failed to determine their source and led him to conclude, “We couldn’t make it ourselves.”

No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon’s U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/23/us/politics/pentagon-ufo-harry-reid-navy.html

Seems like a bombshell revelation, but Eric Davis has a long-held interest in UFO and paranormal research, which leads me to question whether his conclusions are biased, or the result of wishful thinking. An article from 2013:

There was a pretty ebin episode of Joe Rogan Experience recently that discussed this. It was a bit schizo but super entertaining.

>http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/george-knapp-jeremy-corbell

Also, the second pic in your post (from FLIR.mp4) is off of an ATFLIR pod. You can tell by the symbology and layout of the controls. It's a perfectly capable TGP, but it suffers the same limitations as anything using that technology. You see what it senses and nothing more. In this case, the screen says the following, it is tracking an IR signature. Most commonly spotting increased IR signatures caused by heat that pushes it above the background noise of solar IR radiation. So when in WHT (white hot, circled in red) mode what you are seeing is a large amount of IR-spectrum emissions. They don't form an identifiable shape but that is quite explainable with other information. Circled in green we have ownship altitude, in this case it's around Angels 20 in baro. In blue we have the pitch azimuth indicator, telling us that the point of interest is 6 degrees above point of origin, and in pink is the yaw azimuth, telling us the point is three degrees to starboard (right). So what we have is a large thermal signature being viewed from a point that's very close to directly behind it. That is prime positioning for seeing a lot of heat flare from jetwash.

I appreciate your breaking down that image. I recall camera settings played a role in creating another UFO story, the one involving NASA and a tether floating in space(pic). That tether was miles away from the shuttle and their camera was zoomed all the way in on it. This made tiny dots in the foreground appear to be large discs in the background. So it was just dust near the camera lens and not aliens. Anyway, the search continues...:D
I watched the JRE episode this morning and wasn't disappointed. Entertaining stories, Rogan pressing for evidence, and all parties acknowledging the vast amount of BS that UFO researchers have to wade through. And the Skinwalker ranch again, of course. That place is turning into its own Area 51, but with a veneer of Native American mythology thrown into the mix. It occupies that sweet spot, where the spooky paranormal meets the cold technology of aliens. Still, it's a little light on evidence for my tastes.

Tbh, I think that a lot of issues with the idea of Unidentified contacts is that people seem to think it means something it doesn't. It doesn't mean unexplained, or unexplainable, just that we aren't sure what it is. The crazier ones, I chalk up to UCAV testing. It's a logical step forward in their development to look into the idea of an unmanned combat aircraft that goes beyond the loiter and observe tasking. A human can only handle so much in terms of maneuvering, and take up a lot of space between cockpit room, life support etc. What happens when you put the same thrust into a an airframe that's lighter and smaller (less drag) because you omitted the need for an on-site pilot? You get a nuts thrust to weight ratio that looks bizarre even to combat pilots who know how combat aircraft behave. That's my speculation at least, based on trends within military development. Smart systems operating as part of the Networked Battlespace are where the money is going, and things like Loyal Wingman are already being rolled out in early status https://www.boeing.com/defense/airpower-teaming-system/

Common understanding of what the fuck a cutting edge military force looks like in 2020 is very backward looking, and is honestly closer to how things looked 10-15 years ago.

Good evening, my fellow Ernsts.

I would like to host a show for /int/, similar to the one currently running under the name "Ernste Folgen" every second Sunday for /b/.
And tomorrow, we'll give it a shot.

I would like to talk with Ernst about beauty; what does Ernst consider beautiful, how beauty may or may not be to the eye of the beholder and how the ideal beauty has changed throughout time and whatever Ernst would like to add.

Ernst is warmly invited to participate in the debate either here by posting in the thread of by calling me through Skype where you would find me as "colmesrey"

We'll start tomorrow, Saturday the 4th of April at UTC+3 00:00.

I ordered a new cheap keyboard online because my current one has bad keys, and I don't want to wait a month for a chinese mechanical one to arrive.
But I ordered a keyboard before realizing that the very same one is sold 30% cheaper in another store. Order can't be cancelled because already paid for :-(
Oh well. The store I ordered from used to be my go-to because of their excellent warranty policy, but lately they've been increasing prices and sending spam to my burner email. Maybe they're high off their own "prestige". I don't think I will be doing business with them from now on.

In other news, I'm looking for a new regular-ass job. Already have some decent ads lined up. Sure, the last time I got a job, it was a complete embarrassing shitshow, I destroyed some materials, pissed off a bunch of clients, and got scammed out of pay, but honestly it was a great experience builder and smoothed out some of my autism bumps. This time, though, I'll make sure the workplace is closer and is reachable with one bus ride. Last time, the commute was killing me.

Have any Ernsts traveled to any countries in former Yugoslavia?

I'm interested in traveling there one of these days. Which place has the friendliest locals? Least friendly locals? What places are safest? Least safe? Places where English is spoken more?

What respective customs should I be aware of and adhere to?

What about attire? What countries judge you more harshly on appearances? When is formal wear usually expected? What attire is accepted for casual wear?

As much as I like sights, I'm not a particularly physical guy, so long hikes/walks are out of the question unless there's a designated tourist spot. That said, natural beauty is always an attraction for me.

I'm also interested in historic architecture and other sights of significance. Best places to visit?

Croatia has nice beaches if I recall correctly.
I only briefly visited Serbia when I was like 13 or something. You can buy anything on the Subotica/Szabadka market. (They also accept any kind of money, be it the local dinar, the Euro or Hungarian Forint.)

The national food is the chevapi, spicy, ground meat which is grilled. Pretty tasty. The national drink is rakiya, which is a 40% spirit usually made from plum or apricots.

Apparently the place is pretty good for hiking and biking. The landmines mountains make it exciting, or at least my father told me so.
But the only reason why anyone here goes to ex-yugo countries is because of Croatia's beaches, family in Vojvodina or to stock up on cheap vegeta, alcohol, clothes and chocolate at the Szabadka-market.

That reminds me if I ever get my government UI gibes pushed through I really want to buy something actually useful in any eventuality for a change and get a tent. I have a whole wishlist for shit I've wanted to get for ages now that between all the different potential sources of bailout money that I'm not counting until it's in my pocket, the greater bulk of it is all plausibly within my reach. One of those things is a tent and some camping supplies and equipment. It's not like I can possibly regret that kind of a purchase at least, well so long as it's not cheap and made in China anyway. That way if SHTF at least I can sleep with a roof over my head and not just a bushwould recommend when it's not raining tbh Stalin is wrong man is not truly free until he is bereft of any roommate, boss, landlord, cop, parent, or government agent to bitch at him and tell him what to do and nowhere can that be immortally found than living in a bush

Seeing the current thread, I'll try again.
All you need to do is send me any drawings or articles.
1.Can be on anything you want.
2.Soft submission deadline is July 1. Hard submission deadline will be two weeks after. Three months. We'll have quarterly issues. Keep sending even after deadline, will go in next issue.
3.Send to ec_zine@protonmail.com along with a suggestion for zine name.
That's all.

The plan would be to make a zine even though OP seem to lost interest in what he wanted to start.
The problem is that I don't have knowledge in the programs that would be needed to layout the zine. Basically send the texts to people who can put it all together in a zine. OP never said anything about that anyway afaik.

>I'm thinking about the American who seems versatile with such tools
I'm afraid my digital skill set is very limited. I use the drawing app Medibang for everything, which isn't as versatile as Photoshop.

>I can help with image editing.
I'm glad to hear it. In addition to being unqualified, I'm also not really management material :D

Assuming that OP is unable to continue, can we get a head count in this thread of anyone who has sent something to the now dead ec_zine email address, or of anyone who had plans to? I believe that would be a good first step in getting this project restarted.

I submitted something.

Latex is strong for that kind of thing depending on your software wizardry. If you aren't after anything super fancy, you can probably get a decent enough end product out of a word processor too. If you want fancy borders and shit, I could only say GIMP or Photoshop but I barely know how to use them.
t. spoken with people who've published zines

Yeah, you could copy all texts in a word doc and export it as pdf :DDD
Ideally, we have some nice cover, design/layout and a handful of texts and some pictures.

I planned on sending in something but haven't finished, now that the adress is dead I will only get back to that essay once I know there will be a new attempt on making a zine. It's only the last part that needs to be finished.
