Some nice bass music by a talented bassist

I rarely hear “bass” music, but this bassplayer has a special touch to his style. I am not a bassist myself, quite the “opposite” I am a guitar player (don’t tell Davie504!)

Is SCUM’s business model violating EU law?

Well, lets have a look shall we?

-You buy scum from an online retailer (steam)
-To play multiplayer you need a server, this can only be rented by G-portal exclusively even though the dedicated server part is/was part of the game)
Link to someone who setup his own server as the files needed were part of the purchased product 2018: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFz_JU-SCmc

Essentially, to play part of the game you have to rent something that really isnt required, because you could setup a server yourself, but, the developers have removed the capability to do so due to an exclusive agreement with G-portal. It is rumoured that servers files WILL be released at a later unspecified time. At current time they are not available and there is no release date. They argue, the contract with G-portal prevents them from releasing the server-files.

So, in order to rent a server with 50 player slots (something I could comfortably do on my own hardware if the server-files required were not omitted from later builds.) I would have to dish up 41,64USD. pr. Month. Thats a hefty sum for a game I paid 16 EURs for.. That is roughtly equivalent to the power usage of the underlying physcal hardware.

Have a gander:
scumserverprice

They most likely run in a vmware or xen Hypervisor environment with several virtual software servers running on one physical server. With todays high capacity servers, 10 virtual servers on 1 physical is not unusual. This means, each month this server rakes in 10 times its running costs.

Lets look at EU laws…

EU LAW

Conclusion:
-G-portal has exclusive rights(distribution rights) to hosting the multiplayer part of the game.
-They do so, at an highly inflated price and SCUM devs have removed the players ability to circumvent this. It was possible earlier, it is NOT possible now. This yields G-portal a very definitive advantage as the only ones in the world who can host servers.

Hmm, Its a fairly dubious business model I must admit! I am certain none of the above falls under “Block Exemption Regulations”

So the Hammer falls? What do the readers think?

SCUM Base building – A glorious waste of time.

It was Friday. Wipe Day. The patch that would bring base building to SCUM.
I invested 18 hours. Chopped wood for well, 16 of them to get enough to build a fence and a door. I then went on to lock the door and called it a night.

Saturday after resting. Logging in finding that I do no longer own the stuff i spent 18 hours on building and I find out some dude with a lockpick was able to completely hijack my entire base turning the 18 hours I spent with joy and expectancy into complete waste of time.

I cannot recommend obtaining SCUM if basebuilding is one of the things you think you enjoy. Because you wont…

SCUM time my friends would ask me?
-To what purpose? is now my answer…

 

“Don´t bring her.” A thought that leads to pondering.

The time and venue was a pub in my hometown. I was there with a friend and we went to have a beer while waiting to go to a third friends birthday BBQ in a park somewhere close. It was sometime in 2015 late summer.

At some point while standing there, my friends phone rang. It was his ex-girlfriend calling for whatever reason. I not being particularly fond of the girl, thought to myself “Don´t bring her (along for the BBQ red.)”

When the phonecall was subsequently over, he hung up, turned and looked at me saying. “I won´t bring her.”

I asked him: “Why do you say that?” puzzled that he responded so precisely to a thought I just had but hadn´t verbalized.

His response was odd. “You just said that I shouldn´t bring her.”

My puzzledness turned to amazement, I started pondering wether or not I had said it out loud, I was certain I did not.

I laid it out as it was, I had the thought but never said it out loud. He told me that it sounded totally like as I had asked him (with mouth moving and sound coming out) not to bring her.

Quite interesting.

Lyver politiet om situationen i Espe?

Lad os se på det 🙂

Hvis man læser denne artikel finder man følgende underlige oplysning:
– Politiaktionen i Espe fandt sted på baggrund af oplysninger om, at den efterlyste bil havde befundet sig i byen. Det har efterfølgende vist sig at være fejlagtige informationer, som er givet på grund af en defekt på bilens antenne, der har påvirket bilens gps-udstyr. Det ligger således nu fast, at køretøjet ikke har befundet sig i Espe.
http://nyheder.tv2.dk/krimi/2018-11-05-vi-har-hele-tiden-vidst-det-var-en-fejl-siger-lokal-i-espe-om-politiaktion

Fakta tjekker man lige, om en GPS (reciever) enhed i en bil udsender et GPS signal, vil man finde et rungende NEJ.. Satelitten sender til modtageren i bilen, ikke omvendt. Derfor kan politiet ikke “modtage fejlagtige GPS data fra recieveren i køretøjet.” GPS satelitten ved ikke engang at den sender til enheden da der ikke er nogen “sessions” forbindelse.

copslie

Konklusionen må derfor være. Politiet fortæller ikke helt precist hvad der er foregået, eller de anvender dette som en teknisk umulig undskyldning for et fuckup… Jeg ved det ikke. Men det lugter lidt gør det ikke? Er der andre systemer i en volvo som sender noget som helst ud af bilen?

Ja, det er der. Det hedder Sensus Connect. Det kræver et aktivt abonnement, samt et simkort. Der er altså tale om et modem der skal kontakte et 3g data netværk såsom TDC´s mobil netværk. Politiet burde vide at de kan triangulere dette modem via mobilmasterne og på den måde finde bilen. Politiets søforklaring er altså stadig ikke specielt overbevisende… lidt mere om triangulation længere nede. Først kigger vi på storebeltsbroen 🙂

Man kan her se hvor simkortet sidder.

Lidt mere om triangulation længere nede. Først kigger vi på storebeltsbroen 🙂

Storebeltsbroen har et smart system der scanner alle nummerplader. Derfor, ville det være meget let at finde ud af at volvoen ikke er kørt fra sjælland til fyn. Altså, igen en fail fra politiet?

Sådan laver man triangulation 🙂

3 Towers at 
 tx1,ty1 
 tx2,ty2 
 tx3,ty3

With signal strengths s1, s2, s3

We calculate the weight of each signal. Essentially a number from 0 to 1 for each tower where the sum of the weights adds up to 1.

Weighted signal w1, w2, w3 where:
 w1 = s1/(s1+s2+s3)
 w2 = s2/(s1+s2+s3)
 w3 = s3/(s1+s2+s3)


User will be at
x: (w1 * tx1 + w2 * tx2+ w3 * tx3)
y: (w1 * ty1 + w2 * ty2+ w3 * ty3)

Natural remedy for Sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases

Sclerosis is a not well understood auto-immune disease in which the immune system, and I am generalizing, is attacking the myelinsheating around the axons. If we translate this to electical engineering, it is essentially the same as a wire transmitting electricity. This is a simplification. The wire is insulated with rubber normally. This compares to the m.sheath. As the condition of sclerosis breaks down the “rubber insulator”short cuircuits will appear. In a computer this will lead to erroneous output results that the computer itself is not aware of. In humans, it leads to behaviour that is somewhat outside the regular. It can be healed quite easily by self.

I have compiled a list of natural herbs that can help protect the nerves in co-operation with two doctors M.D.

Vitamin D You get this from the Sun amongst others. Investigate “sungazing”

Omega fatty acids  (Flaxseeds/oil, Chiaseeds, Fishoil, Eggs, fish)

Tumericroot extract  (300 mg Tumericroot extract/Curcumin) 1 cap. 3 times daily
Must be taken in conjunction with black pepper or the curcumin cannot absorbed in the stomach lining. You can read more about this in one of my previous posts.(opens in a new window)

Organicly bound magnesium

CBD Oil 20-40%  1 droplet 3 times daily.

-B-Vitamin combination

-Lipids (Coconut oil)

-Thistle tea

-Apply this diet: (Opens in a new window)

-Meditation

A normal Friday.

So I went to the beach to meditate abit.

DSC_0000023
The perfect spot for meditation.

-I walked along the beach and met an elderly nurse who I talked to for a while. She had some grains of wisdom for me. And she was in a place where I could roll a cigarette so I asked if I could join her for a few seconds.

After a while I found Poseidons reef. I started looking for his trident, but it was nowhere to be found.. Gotta go dive for it I guess.. I was deep sea diving wednesday someplace else, but there were just very odd looking fishes and other interesting stuff. Sadly I could not take pictures as I did not have a cam that could film the little buggers :=) we went diving very very deep.

I found a boy and his dad fishing for crabs. Fun father/son activity 🙂

DSC_0000025
I found a family doing “crab racing” in a wierd contraption.
The crabs would eventually plummet into the sea.

Then I got remided of an bet I made with a girl. She said “It is impossible to grow palmas in Denmark”

If you ever read this Evija G. I proved you wrong 😉 Remember lauric acid and tumeric extract!

Subsequently I met a few old friends, made new ones and found a marching band playing! Awesome! I almost resisted the temptation of playing along 😉

Thanks to Mr. T for the last moment toilet rescue 😀 (Just in time delivery)

At this point, the pathfinder arrow started pointing homewards.  “Come home was the message” I met a neighbour at home whom I had not seen a while and had a brief talk.

Eventually it was time to go for night shift activities at CrossBorder E-sport

How I reduced the amount of toxins I inhale. (Fake joints)

I went from
-an additive filled cigarette to a non additive filled cigarette
-a non-additive filled cigarette with less nicotine to rolling my own “fake-joints” with zero additives, organic paper and organic filter tips. They look like this:

DSC_0000020.jpg

Most cigarettes have additives in them. here are some of their effects.
-They enhance nicotine uptake in the receptors
-They conceal odors in the environment
-They create more addiction.

Law of One 33.16 translated

“From dependence to independence to interdependence” Stephen Covey 7 habits of highly effective people

In Humans:
DEPENDENCE = Child which needs parents
INDEPENDENCE = The Teen that revolts against its parents
INTERDEPENDENCE = The Teen that grows up/matures to be able to work with others to reach a set of common goals.

This parts speaks of “independence”

.16 Questioner: I was thinking possibly the catalyst of physical pain. How does this… Does this go under this heading?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct, it going under the heading of the unmanifested self; that is, the self which does not need other-self in order to manifest or act.
