This action is turned off for content made for kids

The “Mission 1” test flight of the SARGEreusable system will carry the commercial payloads flown under the programs listed below. A successful launch will further solidify the company’s plan to use this technology as the design basis of their Jaguar orbital launch vehicle with reusable first stage capable of carrying 100kg to Low Earth Orbit (200-400km).

The flight aborted early (at about 65,000 feet) 20km.

SARGE did not make its 80km target altitude

Youtube Playlist Retardation

Filed under: jsc — zproxy @ 8:25 pm

It is rather nice to be able to just add a video to your playlist. A year ago, they disabled playlist feature for controversial videos, videos not in line to big government. Today, videos marked for kids, cannot be added to a playlist either. Time to create a user agent playlist feature?

NPC World Order

Filed under: jsc — zproxy @ 2:01 am

Whats wrong with this world? Actually, whats wrong with the preople near you? Have you noticed the NPC class has slowly taken over?
No longer are world events discussed among the families, nor is the past or the future.
It is more important than ever, to make sure you just small talk, engage in meaningless mindless chatter, with no lasting effect.

Just make sure you go to work, spend all your time on government projects, pay all the taxes, so you do not have to think when you do come home.
The people in 2020 have little idea what life could be like. They cannot imagine life without government or taxes. The NPC class.

The End Of Google Sites

Google Sites (Classic or Legacy) used to be a cool simple way to create a treeview sidebar enabled html documents.

Starting this week, it seems, google has decided to sabotage the old version, and, deny any support or bug reporting.

The new version seems to be developed by interns, and is not suitable for the same purposes.

Verdict: Avoid google products starting 2020.


Oh. and no, wordpress, i do not like your new block editor either. Get off my grass.

1984: Freedom To Travel

Filed under: life — zproxy @ 2:29 pm

Ideally you would be free to own property. Be it a car.

It would be locally built. Not an import.

It would run on fuel created locally. Not an import.

You would be free from annual insurance, annual drivers license, annual ID card.

You would be free from being stopped for not attending a paid annual check of your property.


We do not live in ideal world. We live in a world, where people think its ok to run the rat race, to import cars, import fuel, pay for renewal of ID, pay for renewal of driver license, pay for extension of the car check.

If you attempt to be free, they will ask for your email and fine you. Then you have to log into a bank with your ID and, pay up. in their printed fiat. For which you would have to work for. If you pay salary. You would have to withhold the taxes.

And. In the end. After you have done all that. You get to go to the beach with your dog.


Atleast the beach is free. And there are no tolls on the road.



Can we track which plalist has which movie?

Samsung GearVR 4K

Filed under: tech — zproxy @ 5:24 pm

November 7, 2019
Going forward, all Gear VR apps will need to leverage the Oculus Mobile SDK 1.26.0

Yesterday, Samsung announced its new device, Note 10. It will not have an audio port, it will not have a 4K screen, and it will not do VR.

Samsung seems to have stopped talking about and even selling the GearVR device.

Is this a repeat of google chrome apps or adobe flash?

Facebook Oculus seems to have hidden mentions of GearVR.

As such, will there be a GearVR 4K? Or will the tech be hidden, made comercially unavailable instead?

The general morale among the masses, mindless consumers seems to be entertainment centric, having no interest of the VR tech itself.


Oh and, .net will become .net core, and android attempts to distance from java to kotlin. Crazy times.


I am kinda fed up with having to consume news about Google’s discontinued products.


Soon all that will remain in that space will be Google Cardboard and those are just gimmicks for getting 3D images and low quality VR from an Android phone, and it remains alive only because it costs basically nothing for Google to keep it working.

VR innovation overall is still going on, mostly in Oculus’ camp with the latest 6DOF wireless HMDs (namely the Quest). The other PC players seem to be stuck in 2014, with heavy, complex tethered HMDs that seems as if they will remain a niche market for the foreseeable future.
I hate the “all or nothing” attitude that companies are taking with VR right now.

The main problem is they’re trying to have people play in a 3D environment, i.e. moving and walking around in the virtual space, instead of just having a “sit-down” setup for: first person shooters with a keyboard+mouse or gamepad, driving/racing games, roller coasters, etc. The same games we play today but using a VR headset with head tracking instead of a regular display, giving you a more immersive and natural view of the game world.

A “walking” VR setup requires a whole room, or at the very least a big empty floor area, dedicated to the session. You risk bumping into things, people, pets, etc. And right now there’s a bunch of wires always in the way, etc… It’s too much.

Also, I played Arizona Sunshine a few years ago (yeah okay, only once), and having to point and click at the ground in order to move almost made it less immersive than playing Left 4 Dead 2 on a regular computer.

Putting headset trackers on your desk on each side of the monitor isn’t asking as much. Wires become less of an issue. And without special controllers you stop flaying your arms around, there’s no arms/hands tracking to do… it simplifies the setup and lowers the costs by a lot. Don’t put speakers in the damn thing, most people already own headphones. A less complicated and cheaper setup would mean easier cross-platform support along with cross-brand standards, along with more users, which in turn would mean more supported games.

S7 has green vertical line on screen

Filed under: tech — zproxy @ 1:42 am

Whats that about? Screen glitching out on its own? Turn it off and then what?

On boot its there again. Line fades away if only blue is displayed.

9 days later. Another line apperas. S7 edge has 2 green lines. Will it become a paperweight?




The green line you are seeing is the digitizer….if it were pixels it would be in only one square on the screen. The layers between the lid and the digitizer will sometimes get stuck together in a spot that has been touched…once it is stuck together it forms the green lines all the way down the length of the screen
Playing some games where you have to repeatedly touch or hold the screen can add to this issue…there is no fix other than replacing the digitizer…sorry for the bad news

Open your phone keypad and type: *#0*#
After you have typed in the code, the service menu opens automatically. In the top row you will find three different tiles: Red, Green, Blue
Tap all three tiles (separately) and check on the display with the eye whether a pixel errors exist. A pixel error occurs as a dark spot.

Its a hardware fault with AMOLED panel. It needs replacement. Otherwise display goes dead after some time.
