Billy Mitchell has surrendered ( perfectpacman.com )

Billy Mitchell didn't win his defamation lawsuit against Twin Galaxies. Not only was Billy not in a position to get a financial settlement, Billy's cheated Donkey Kong scores were not reinstated(as he's claiming), and his claimed Pac-Man score from 1999 is also not on the main scoreboards. What had happened is that the score is...

I really hope it was Billy that caved and not TG. Dude really is awful in quite a few ways.

If anyone wants a ridiculously long deep dive on the Billy Mitchell stuff(and is willing to read instead of watching a video), I recommend checking out this. There's also on that website a huge deep dive into the story about his alleged "perfect Pacman" run, and his history of gaslighting the classic gaming community into thinking he was the greatest gamer ever.

This isn't surprising in the least. They've been pushing more and more ads recently; trying to get streamers to run them more often. I hate ads, so I have always opted for a short pre-roll so that when its done, viewers won't have to worry about ads anymore. But I think Twitch will eventually force streamers to run ads every half hour, no matter how many people they scare off.

I couldn't get past the second area(I think?)of Cuphead, there was a dragon boss that was just a wall for me.

I got an entirely new gaming rig up and running (Ryzen 7 7800X3D / Radeon RX 6700) so I thought I'd grab a couple more recent games to push it a bit, as I had a potato before. Been having a lot of fun with Forza Horizon 5 and the World Tour mode of Street Fighter 6. Thinking about maining Juri in SF6, she's fun to play.

Hey, that’s neat, wasn’t really expecting that. It’s still an absolute joke that he lasted this long, though.

It’s alright, just basically Twitter 2. It’s useful for some things. A lot of creatives chose to migrate there, which is nice so that I can network with fellow Twitch streamers and keep up with news on the platform. As much as I like Mastodon, I just wasn’t getting that there. It’s also nice that a bunch of artists I used to follow are there.

Yeah, I think I’ll pass. The Raspberry Pi people hired a former police officer who used their stuff in hidden surveillance. Then when people called them out on it on Twitter, Pi blocked those who did. petapixel.com/…/raspberry-pi-under-fire-by-creato…

Been on that F-Zero 99 grind. Got myself up to A- rank, so I’m not doing too badly. :)

Honestly, that article is pretty lousy. It just boils down to “I oppose gay marriage because I don’t like the concept of marriage”. Just seems like veiled homophobia to specifically call out opposition to gay marriage when they could have just written “I oppose the concept of marriage, and this is why”.

Soul Caliber and it’s predecessor which I’ve forgotten the name of.

That’d be Soul Edge(which was renamed Soul Blade for the PlayStation port).

It really sounds like the latter. If it were a misunderstanding, Xbox would have clarified the situation back when the story started getting traction.

Even I could have told you that a vague digital “proof of ownership” of a hideous, mass-produced ape image was a bad investment.

That’s what they should be doing, but it isn’t what they’re going to do, unfortunately.

Kimathi Bradford, a 16-year-old Oakland tech repair intern, has looked into whether there was a way to replace the outdated Chromebook software with a non-Google brand, but it ended up being a lot of work, Kimathi said, and the open-source replacement wasn’t up to par. “It’s like the Fritos of software,” he said. “No one really wants to use it.”

Now, I’m not sure if what they tried was Linux, but I wouldn’t be too surprised. The younger generations grew up with smartphones; I feel as though operating systems will become more streamlined and opaque as time goes on. I suspect we’ll have to contend with the phonification of mainstream computing in the coming years.

Sorry! I didn’t realize it was paywalled because I could see the whole thing. Hopefully this should work:

I don’t mind Calibri, but Aptos does look like an improvement. I particularly like the serif added to the lowercase L… it has always annoyed me how that and uppercase I look exactly the same in many fonts. It’s one of the reasons why I’m partial to fonts with serifs.

That just leads to a toxic community. No thanks. Also the “Hate speech does not exist” thing is certainly a take.

Yeah, I absolutely can't imagine being a writer who is trying to break in this space. Discoverability is going to be a nightmare going forward.

I have since deactivated my account, but i still will occasionally click on the Twitter link on desktop. That site loads sooooooo slow these days. It's really disheartening to see so many people refuse to let go of birdsite.

So basically they're just going to be a leech. Blech.
