        Hilarious...and, for sure, problematic. Accidentally sending one of those to your boss or when submitting a resume, angering the recipient AND permanently, silently, muting the email chain? Yeah, makes sense why it wasn't kept.
        Still sounds bloody hilarious, though.

      I hate my 3-hour uni tutorial (1-4pm Mondays)...it's so BORING. It's practically a lecture, since there's no student participation.

        Kill me now, before the brain death this bloody tutorial causes gets me. It's for a Python/Mininet subject - and, like most of my university subjects thus far, it doesn't give out solutions for incorrect quiz questions or weekly Lab exercises. How are you supposed to learn?

        And, since this tutorial is the *entirety* of the uni's classes for this subject, and it combines both pre-grad and post-grad students into one (despite the two having different subject IDs), it bloody well skipped Lab 7 (whatever that was meant to be) and gives us two Labs to do this week. Ugh.
        Please murder me.

      Is it just me, or is Espeon one of the best Eeveelutions? Decently-wide movepool, high relevant stats, good Hidden Ability.

        Flareon needs Speed and an actual physical movepool, both of which it lacks. Lastly, Umbreon - why no Magic Guard? All about stall, but that's slow and he just loses any momentum gained; what's he supposed to do against a Poison-type or Steel-type special attacker? Toxic's worthless, and Foul Play does minimal damage. All he can do is Roar 'em out; yay. Sigh...so many Eeveelutions need urgent buffs.

        I do share those opinions - and overall movepool coverage for all Pokémon has decreased since Sword/Shield removed Hidden Power and Signal Beam, for some stupid reason.
        Flareon desperately needs something like Rock Slide, Stone Edge, Wild Charge, Crunch, or something, since right now he's limited to Flare Blitz (recoil), Superpower (lowers Atk and Def after use), and Facade (only powerful if statused).

        Sylveon needs a Ground-type move (Earth Power?) for near-perfect coverage, and Glaceon would like it too, along with Power Gem (ice is sparkly, and Power Gem is an attack that uses sparkly rays of light; why not?). As you said, Energy Ball would be a sweet choice for the five special attackers here, but sadly they don't get it. Imagine if Espeon could get Aura Sphere...that'd be awesome.

      I hate Fahrenheit, and its illogical nature. How is "water boiling" 212? What kinda rando number is that? Why not an understandable 0-100?

        You've got a point with the inefficiency of Imperial but metric isn't any good either in our technological society. Computers do 99.999% of the world's measurement calculations, so if you really want to make a meaningful difference, advocate for a base16 measurement system instead of base10. Computers don't count with their fingers.

        Fahrenheit was supposed to be based off of human body temperature, with 100 being normal, but there were slight errors made so 97 or 98 is normal. 100 is usually a fever

        I know; it got locked after four pages, and after it devolved to talking about Bug snacks or something. I haven't seen many locked blogs before...surprised I didn't even get a Warning for that. Though they can't exactly punish someone for having an opinion, even if it is unpopular; I wasn't insulting another user or similar.

        Many cartoons suffer from art of varying quality, that can result in misshapen people. That's not an issue O'Brian has at all, thanks to his unique physiology. He's also a comedic dude too, furthering his appeal, and his redemption from crook to hero is quite compelling compared to the usual normie-to-hero background many others have.

        XC2 is beautiful, has great characters, and rather deep gameplay. I do agree the tutorials could be significantly better, and Core Crystal gacha is dumb, but overall the game is excellent. It's also pseudo-open-world; enough to give each Titan plenty of explorative value, but not too much as to be overwhelming.

        Also the character designs are, uh, you know. That's not as much because of the modelers, animators, texture artists, etc, as it is the actual character designers, and I probably hate looking at some of the characters more because of how they're written than how the look, but seeing Pyra in Smash with her stupid face and obnoxious tits still pisses me off.

      Doing Software Defined Networks in uni, and one Review question in the weekly Lab is "Have you heard about ARP Cache Poisoning?"
      1. RichardTheKing
        RichardTheKing
        What kind of a question is THAT? "Yes, I have heard about ARP cache poisoning; thanks for asking!" There's no "define" or "explain" or anything to prompt a proper goddamn answer, just if I had ever heard of the concept before.

        You will occasionally get things like that in an interview. It is usually an invitation to cover a scenario you saw it in the wild, be it as part of a workaround, malicious hack, the results of a malformed program, or you can say I know what they are but have never encountered it or had to use it, or how you might fix a situation it happened for.
        In a lab said it might also be a gauge on what level students are at.

        They used to offer these. Netflix did anyway. They stopped when it stopped being profitable because a month is often enough time for these people to watch what they want for free and then leave :)

        The other thing is most free trials can be infinitely gamed. Like on ancestry for example you can make a new account every 2 weeks forever and never pay for the service.
