[RQB] How the USB Type-C retention system works

Note: This is a copypasta of a status update I did.   One of the things that has eluded me about USB Type C was its retention system. On Micro B it's easy to see; those little bumps on the top of the cable's connector are it (they go into divots in the device's end). But in Type C I couldn't see anything. So I chalked it up to either friction or those six metal bits on the end of the cable's connector.   It turns out it doesn't look like either. I found an exploded diagram of the cable's connector (image from https://www.tweaktown.com/news/50182/wary-cheap-usb-type-cables-fry-hardware/index.html)   And I noticed there two claw looking arms colored dark teal. That looks like a retention system. So after digging around some more, I came to this website: https://www.appliancedesign.com/articles/94953-next-generation-connectors. They have a diagram of the assembly of the cable side's connector and sure enough, there are two claw type arms on either side of the connector. And those six metal bits may or may not be metal, but they look more for structural support than for retention.   So what about the device end?   There's two flanges out on the tab that has all the pins. And to verify this was really a thing, I poked at my phone's Type C port with a staple and managed to hook onto the flange.  So there you go, USB Type C's retention system.   (also I'm not sure if this was even discussed in the places where I first heard about the connector)

Opening the Scrolls: Unpacking the Shady and Scandal-Plagued History of Bethesda / ZeniMax

For a long time, there has existed a strange anomaly in the gaming community: The unbalanced and blind perception of Bethesda / ZeniMax as being a 'good-person' developer and publisher. This perception has been held by many of the companies' fans despite all the while the company keeps doing things that contradict that perception. In many ways, Bethesda / ZeniMax have been games industry leaders in scummy, disrespectful, and exploitative lawsuit-happy practices, going back for more than a decade, showing them to be one of the most arrogant and uncontrollably greedy companies in gaming.   So, here is a sobering look at many of Bethesda / ZeniMax' unscrupulous practices and events going back to the companies' earlier years.     1. The company known today as Bethesda and ZeniMax was formed through some betrayal and back-stabbing.   Julian Le Fay, generally considered the creator of the Elder Scrolls series, directed the first three Elder Scrolls games, Arena, Daggerfall, and Battlespire, and expected to continue working on the series he created with the next game, TES: Morrowind. But, he was sidelined from the project and consequently left the company.   Bethesda's founder, Christopher Weaver, was forced out of his own company after he put up lots of his own money to save the company.   Watch 23:54 - 25:30 in this video for details about those departures:     2. $2.50 horse armour DLC for Oblivion: This is the historical origin of and precedence for all other nickle-and-diming exploitative DLC practices that have since screwed gamers over. Bethesda was the first pioneer of exploitative and greedy DLC practices. After Bethesda had then gotten public expectations for DLC, a then-new and non-established concept, set at their absolute rock-bottom, many other publishers followed and expanded upon Bethesda's lead with their own exploitative DLC practices.     3. Bethesda sued Mojang over the use of "Scrolls" as a game title, even after Mojang already volunteered to give up the Scrolls title, and then settled out of court because it became pretty clear that Bethesda was likely going to lose the case.   Notch Offered to Give Up "Scrolls" Trademark, Bethesda Sued Anyway Bethesda And Mojang Settle 'Scrolls' Lawsuit     4. Bethesda intentionally destroyed developer of 2012's Prey 2, Human Head, by starving the studio of resources to force it into a corner where Human Head would feel like they had to sell the studio to Bethesda for a far-below-value price in order to survive. Human Head did not give in to Bethesda, and as a result of having no income from Prey 2 after having spent its resources making Prey 2, couldn't afford to make another big-title game:     It has taken from then until now for Human Head to recover enough financially to be able to make a new big-title game. Human Head's first big-title game since 2006's Prey will be Rune: Ragnarok, and I'm guessing that it will release next year.     5. Bethesda reportedly did the same thing to Arkane Studios       6. Suing Facebook and Oculus for $4 billion, trying to get ownership over Oculus technology, while outright losing their original case. The jury awarded $500 million in damages to ZeniMax over breach of NDA, copyright infringement, and false-designation, but all of ZeniMax' original and core claims against Facebook and Oculus were found to be invalid by the court.   ZeniMax awarded $500 million judgment in Oculus lawsuit   Facebook and Oculus are appealing the $500 million verdict: Oculus Vows Appeal of $500 Million Verdict, ZeniMax Threatens Injunction   John Carmack has given a public defence of himself, while suggesting that ZeniMax are liars. He said that ‘The Internet Would Have Viciously Mocked The Analysis’ in the $500 million verdict.   On further appeal, the $500 million verdict was subsequently reduced to $250 million, and then Facebook and ZeniMax settled out of court.     7. Suing Samsung as an extension of their lawsuit against Facebook and Oculus.   ZeniMax sues Samsung over VR technology in Gear goggles     8. Suing developer of Kickstarter project "Prey for the Gods" over having the word Prey in their title. The developer opted to simply modify their game's name to "Praey for the Gods" rather than to deal with Bethesda's frivolous lawsuit.   Prey for the Gods changes name to avoid fight with Bethesda's Prey     9. Turning community mods into a capitalist venture with paid mods and opening their own Bethesda games digital distribution storefront to continue to pursue paid mods after Valve backtracked on having them sold through Steam following public backlash.     10. If you criticize Bethesda too much on their forums, expect to be banned. The Bethesda forums are like a daycare-centre for toddlers because of draconian moderation. Partial lobotomy and Bethesda fanboyism is required for entrance and staying there.     11. In a clear violation of the law, Bethesda tried to pretend that it was the law and could stop people from reselling their own game properties and dictate whether a person could list their own unopened games as "new" when reselling them.   Bethesda tried to pull this stunt despite the US Supreme Court and the Court of Justice of the EU both having definitively ruled that people may resell their copyrighted goods without needing any permission from the copyright holder. Bethesda purporting to prohibit people from listing their unopened games a "new" condition would be an instance of the copyright-holder denying the game owner permission to resell that game-owner's own game, and would therefore be a violation of the US Supreme Court and the EU's Court of Justice rulings:

US Supreme Court Rules People May Resell Copyrighted Goods Without Copyright-Holder's Permission - US Software Association Has a Fit   EU Court Says, Yes, You Can Resell Your Software, Even If The Software Company Says You Can't       12. A whole lot about Fallout '76, which is a dated asset-flip game too buggy for some people to even play:   - The $200 USD Power Armour edition that screwed buyers of it over when Bethesda pulled a bait-and-switch with the advertised canvas bag that was replaced in the actual released product with what basically looks like a crumpled-up garbage bag with no resemblance to the advertised bag.   - The blunt brush-off from Bethesda support admitting that they did pull a bait-and-switch with the canvas bag, and further stated they simply aren't going to do anything about it. Bethesda later apologized for the curtness of the earlier Bethesda support's reply, yet didn't apologize for and didn't offer to fixe what the actual issue was, which is the bait-and-switch of the advertised canvas bag.   - The crap design of the game, which MSRP'd at $60 USD yet plays like a $20 early-access title at its release.   - Refusing to refund the game for people who couldn't play it because it was too broken.   - Completely ludicrous and offensive micro-transaction fees such as charging $18 USD for a single power armour skin just to add some blue-coloured paint to it. Coming from the inventor of nickle-and-diming exploitative and egregiously-priced DLC, though, perhaps nobody should be surprised by this - though they certainly ought to be outraged.   - Insulting upset Power Armour edition purchasers further by offering them a pathetic 500 Atoms ($5 USD) in-game currency for micro-transactions, when that can basically only buy one hairdo model, or two facial tattoos.   - Turning previously-free character customization content from Fallout 4 into nickle-and-diming paid content in Fallout '76     Because of all the scandals surrounding Fallout '76, Bethesda has come under investigation for bad business practices.     13. All-around really bad, just completely mindless game-design, met with low production quality values including what perhaps bugs me the most about Bethesda games: the pisspoor, unintentionally-cringy loopy writing, and the banal quest design - which, in some cases, is also combined with mishandling of lore such as for the Fallout series which Bethesda acquired from Interplay in 2007. And then there is the notorious dumbing-down of their games which I find has resulted in there being hardly anything meaningful left to do in them anymore.   I think it's a reasonable argument to make, to say that Bethesda Games Studios games have traditionally often displayed the lowest production quality values out of the whole AAA games business - in writing, animations, voice-acting, quest design, character models...     The Blistering Stupidity of Fallout 3 - a five-part analysis               Some final thoughts   There might some additional information about other ZeniMax / Bethesda lawsuits in this article: A brief history of Bethesda’s many legal tangles   So, when talking scummy and greedy publishers, I think both history and the present show that ZeniMax / Bethesda is not only ranked up there at the top along with all the worst of publishers in the history of the games industry (whether people think of EA, ActiVision, Ubisoft, Nintendo, or any other publisher), but that Bethesda has even done and is still doing a lot of stuff that's worse than stuff we think of other big publishers as evil for doing. People just haven't been tuning into it.   Bethesda is basically the software developer equivalent of a patent troll: They acquire big idea game IPs from non-Bethesda talent (including TES, since the series creator was separated from it and then left the compnay), and then milk them while progressively squeezing the life out of them as they're dumbed-down closer to oblivion with each successive release.   For all these reasons, I think it's important and very long overdue that people start practising serious cautiousness and discretion when thinking about what Bethesda represents. Through so many years of unbalanced and blind-eye-turning praise, Bethesda fans have enabled and encouraged Bethesda to think of themselves as a lot better and more entitled than they really are by letting everything all go to Bethesda's heads despite Bethesda not really having done things to deserve their historically-positive reputation. And now, Bethesda no longer even cares to simply try to appear be reasonable and decent for the sake of their own reputation.

Day Eighteen - Folding Month 2018

Guys... Winter The update is coming.     In first we have Tomerrs with 128million points, The KIng is not far behind him with 119.4million, then we have _Rlocke with 105million points, Jakkuh is holding onto that number 4 with 80.6million, Gorgon has the 5th spot with 51.6million. Dissitesuxba11s is in 6th with 44.4million, Porina is in 7th with with 42.4million, Ben Quigley is sitting in 8th with 42.2million, Palespartan in 9th with with 34.8milion, and Cereal5 is still the gate keeper to the top 10 with 34million points.  DUW1G1T and Yabdat take 11 and 12 with 31million points each. InvaderZim is in 13th with 24.7million points. 14th is held by TVwazhere with 23.6million points, D_Newb has 20.7million, Sazrocks in 16th with 19million, Powelljl, Willhemmins and RollinLower all have 18million points taking the next three spots and finally in 20th we have Stijnman with 17.2million points.    It seems @King Poet is looking to challenge Tomerrs for the number one spot, @palespartan seems to be stalling and Cereal5 is looking like he may be able to push up a rank. Unfortunately there isn't really much more excitement going on for the moment.     The overall team has seen slight drop to 264million points of production over the last 24hours.   Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Also, I just want to add that if we suspect you are purposefully just skimming the minimum requirements you may be disqualified. If we see you produce one WU per day for the last 15days for instance we may feel the need to investigate.   Thanks for everyone who is involved in this event,   Happy folding,   Ben.

Day Thirteen - Folding Month 2018

Well guys, thanks to Gorgon we can now confirm mall data on the sheet to be valid and the issues resolved! There has been some shifts in ranks due to the correction but I can confirm this should be the last time anything like this occurs as long as the data stays correct from Stanford.    Tomerrs is in first, as per usual with 87.1million points, King Poet in second with 73.2million and _Rlocke is in thirs with 59.5million. Jakkuh dropped to fourth with 55.8million and Gorgon holds onto fifth with 35.5million points. Ben Quigley finds himself sitting in 6th again with 31.1million points followed by Dissitesuxba11s being 800k behind his mark. Porina is in 8th with 28.2million followed by Palespartan with just shy of 25million points. Cereal5 is still the gatekeeper of the top 10 with 22.9million points.  In 11th we have Yabdat with 21million points, followed by DUW1G1T with a lag of 200k points or so. Then there's an opening of 3million points to Invaderzim in 13th. TVwazhere is behind him by 2 million. D_Newb and Powellji both have around the 14million mark. Willhemmens is in 17th with 13.5million, 15th is occupied by RollinLower with 13million. Cagedanimalz, and sazrocks both have just over 12million and take the 19th and 20th spots on the table.    If nothing else changes about production the table should stay pretty recognisable, @_Rlocke will move up into second, @Cereal5 will move up a spot, @DUW1G1T should push up a number of spaces.  Bit overall we should expect the next new updates to look quite similar to what we are seeing here.      Over the course of the month we track more data than what you see us present and one piece of data I would like to share... all points produced by the event participants as of this update officially add up to....   The overall team has seen over 239million points of production over the last 24hours..    Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Also, I just want to add that if we suspect you are purposefully just skimming the minimum requirements you may be disqualified. If we see you produce one WU per day for the last 15days for instance we may feel the need to investigate.   Thanks for everyone who is involved in this event,   Happy folding,   Ben.

Day Twelve - Folding Month 2018

Last night I spent six hours trying to fix the sheet, for the most part it is fine and dandy but a few users numbers seem off and I can not work out why, when hes back online later I will see if @Gorgon can have a look and maybe he can fix the issue! The following four users have been identified as having under reported figures, @choccobear, @DUW1G1T, @D_Newb and @[REDACTED]. Guys, I'm sorry that I wasn't able to fix your numbers for this update and I am hoping Gorgon and come and find the elusive issue.    In first we have Tomerrs holding onto that throne with 79million points, The king is in second with 65.5milion, _Rlocke is in third with 51.4million, Jakkuh is in fourth with 50.6million. Fifth place is taken by Gorgon with a gap of around 18million points. Ben Quigley Sits in sixth with 28.8million, Followed by Dissitesuxba11s with 28.1million points, Porina has 26.1million points, Palespartan is in 9th with 23million points, Cereal5 is the gatekeeper of the top 10 with 21million. Yabdat finds himself in 11th with 18.7million, Invaderzim is in 12th with 16million, TVwazhere follows with 14.2million. Willhemmens holds 15th with 12million. RollinLower has help onto 16th with just shy of 12million. CagedAnimalz, Stijnman and Sazrocks are all hovering around the 11million mark. And in 20th we have one of our question entries, DUW1G1T at 10million.    Most of the ranks seem to be pretty fixed for the time being, Tomerrs holding onto first, the king in second, @Yabdat looks like he can push a few more ranks up the table, Interestingly if @_Rlocke keeps up this rate of production there's a chance he could take the throne from Tomerrs. But, in the past we have seen 10million in a day from Tom so we will have to see how that goes.  The overall team has seen over 230million points of production over the last 24hours..    Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Also, I just want to add that if we suspect you are purposefully just skimming the minimum requirements you may be disqualified. If we see you produce one WU per day for the last 15days for instance we may feel the need to investigate.   Thanks for everyone who is involved in this event,   Happy folding,   Ben.

Day Eleven - Folding Month 2018

Ive still not gotten around to rebuilding sheet one, that will be today at some point(read that as it's going to be another all-nighter most likely). Hopefully the numbers up to this point aren't too far off but we will see.    Now we have Tomerrs as what have become the traditional first place, the king is sitting in second with 58.9million. Jakkuh is in third with 44.3million, _RLocke is not far behind with 42.9million then there's a wide opening to Gorgon sitting in fifth with 29.2million points. Dissitesuxba11s and Ben Quigley are both at 26million points. Porina is in eighth with 24million points, Palespartan is behind him by 4 million points, and in tenth we have Cereal5 with 8.8million. In 11th we have Yabdat with 16.2million points, Invaderzim is 2million points  him in 12th, TVwazhere and Powelljl both have around 12.4million points. In 15th we have Willhemmings with 11million points. RollinLower and CagedAnimalz both have 10.5million points. in18th Stijnman has 10million points. Sazrocks in sitting in 19th with just under 10million points and in 20th RAS_3885 has just over 9million points.   Tomerrs is still solidly in first, @jakkuh_t is closing in on the King for second place. Porina is looking to be able to push himself up the rankings if he maintains the pace. DUW1G1T is producing a nice 2.2million PPD and will most likely be moving up the table over the next few days.      The overall team has seen even more of a boost up to 200million points.    Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Also, I just want to add that if we suspect you are purposefully just skimming the minimum requirements you may be disqualified. If we see you produce one WU per day for the last 15days for instance we may feel the need to investigate.   Thanks for everyone who is involved in this event,   Happy folding,   Ben.
