    IhazHedont got a reaction from Peterwoo802 in If you can't beat 'em, join em - 30 Anime Studios launch joint YouTube channel of free anime.   
    Good, I'm tired of region limitation.
     
    I tried, I subscribed to several services, including Crunchy Roll, and I kept getting denied access to certain animes because I live in the NL.
    So be it, I tried the biggest French anime legal distribution. Same story.
     
    VPN is not a solution for me because:
     
    - Why should I pay extra while I am already paying premium service ?
    - Those websites do not allow the use of VPN, and you risk to be banned immediately once they catch you.

    IhazHedont got a reaction from mr moose in Siemens eHighway   
    http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/3033.htm
     
    It is the most recent article.
     
    Coming from other article:
    https://www.generation-nt.com/francais-developpent-batterie-sodium-ion-sel-actualite-1922160.html
     
    Interesting points:
    "...(l'autre avantage de) la batterie sodium-ion est sa durée de vie : elle a atteint 2000 cycles de charge et de décharge"
    "... ( the other advantage of) the Na iom battery is its life span: it reaches 2000 cycles of charge/discharge cycle"
     
    The article does not mention it, but I hope they were talking about 100%-0% cycle, which is, in average, 500 cycles for a standard lithium battery.
    They noticed a problem at the early development of this kind of battery though: 
     
    "Toutefois, si le lithium est aujourd'hui préféré dans les batteries, c'est qu'il permet d'atteindre une plus grande tension électrique ainsi qu'une plus forte densité énergétique ( 200 Wh/kg contre 90 Wh/kg pour la batterie au sel présenté)."
    "However, if the lithium is mostly used, it is because it has a better energy density (200Wh/kg against 90Wh/kg for the Na ion).
     
    Hopefully, with all the knowledge we gathered about batteries, and serious investiment, it could be a significant step forward in energy storage imo.

    From my perspective (which is very very limited heh), we keep coal because if politician speaks positively about nuclear, then he is basically doomed and can forget his political career, even/especially in France.
    Nuclear power is a debate of opinion, frequently driven by emotions and heart feelings, whereas it is a very, very technical subject.
     
    Just ask an anti nuclear militant what is a Becquerel, Sieverts, how many types of nuclear waste exist, do they all have the same longevity, which are those we chose to bury, are they all solid, liquid, or gas ?
     
    They'll just reply "DUH nuclear is dangerous, and a power plant is ticking nuclear bomb".

    It is actually the same problem with electricity storage.
    A French company which funds where raised by the state released a very competitive Na ion battery.
     
    Same capacity than lithium, better charging cycles performances, no thermal runaway, easier to recycle, same form factor.
     
    The problem ? Well, salt is quite easy to find, and many countries rely on the lithium industry.
     
    I can try to find an english article about it if interested.

    Honestly if the political route is to keep growth based economy then yes, absolutely.
     
    I am completely ok with renewable energies as long as we decide to slow our lifestyle pace in terms of production and consumption.

    To me it is, because this statement turns a big blind eye of electricity production implications.
    It is true that you can not breath exhaust gas out of an electric car, or even out of your cooking appliances, but it does not mean it does not exist, it is simply relocated elsewhere.
     
    This is the same reasoning when building windmills, dams and solar panels. Sure, there is no direct carbon emission at the production site, but (and I don't this to be some kind of "whataboutism") you cannot occult the sand needed for concrete, the silicium/lithium/steel, transportation, the inherent problems it causes to the environment itself: birds/fish path being, deconstruction/allocation of natural habitat for the solar panels, fish paths in the rivers and so on.

    I should have only quoted this:
    "The point people like to ignore about electrical vehicles"
     
    My point is that this matter is far beyond energies being clean. Power availability is what makes our days "modern", and it has a price.
     
    Then "He said every time a source that does not pollute replaces a coal source it gets cleaner.  That is actually a fact you can't ignore."
     
    But renewable energies have an environmental cost. And that is also why I talked about power availability: if you want to keep things the way they are running, you need to produce extra renewable energies, and they are totally not carbon free, as well as storage and even water dams.

    I'm not saying that we should keep coal though. Just that in my opinion, if we really want to keep the way we live, produce and consume while reducing carbon emission, then nuclear is the answer, especially when we tend to replace every oil consumers with electrical ones.

    IhazHedont got a reaction from Devin92 in Mercedes to launch an all-electric vehicle in challenge to Tesla   
    It's kind of heartbreaking to say as an electrician, but electric cars are nothing more than a very strategic green washing.
     
    They are not clean, the pollution is relocated in another place:
     

     
    Oh my bad, this is only for the US ?
     
     

     
    What I find incredible is how we think coal as being an energy of the past while it has actually never been.
    Sure it is declining, but for gas plant instead.
     
    And those renewable energies ? They are legacies of our fossil industry. Nothing else. Windmills require a shitton of concrete, steal, transport (with trucks), too much wind ? They are turned off. Too little ? They are pointless.
     
    Long story short: electric cars are actually coal/gas cars.

    IhazHedont got a reaction from Taf the Ghost in NVidia Geforce RTX 2080 confirmed up to 2x GTX 1080 performance. Evidence for 2080 ti as well.   
    Actually it seems that the RTX2080Ti replaces the Titan series, hence:
    RTX2080Ti = Titan.
    RTX2080 = GTX1080.
    RTX2070= GTX1070.
     
    So .... RTX2080TiTi ?

    Advertising is not about insidiously lying to potential customers.
     
    It is about putting anything you want to sell under its best spotlight, hence taking an actual picture with a phone and then using any kind of software to enhance the picture is fine to me, because this is something you can reproduce yourself.
     
    But taking a picture with a professional camera and then claim that this picture was taken with the phone ? Sorry, but it's not how it is suppose to work.
     
    You want to buy a guitar amplifier, you listen to samples on the manufacturer website (samples which, of course, have been mixed and recorded in the best condition in a normal advertising situation), but in the end you realize the samples were recorded with a total different amp ?
     
    It is really not a way to do things.

    Meanwhile you can protect yourself by using non-mainstream browsers with ad and script blocker extensions, and block a metric arse load of ad/tracker sites and scripts at the router level. Pihole makes it real easy. On mobile use Adaway or Adguard to the same effect, and LOS based custom ROM to deny apps access to excessive permissions (including Google Play Store, Google Play Services, Google Services Framework) or straight up throw Google out the window by going AOSP with microg.
     
    You'd be a fool to rely completely on legislation to protect you. Because in truth they are just the same wolves in sheep's clothing.

    It would be great if the price positionning gets between OLED displays and high end LCD's.
