3D will always cycle back now and then as long as it requires the glasses.

I wonder if VR and AR will stick around on this current rise or if the headsets again limit use to a small subset of people.

It's like video phones. They seem obvious and the tech keeps improving, but fundamentally I hate having to change my clothes, fix my hair, shave, etc... before making a call; so it never really catches on.

Oh yeah the looks they give you.
I suppose deep inside they feel like it devalues their life choices. Some can barely fathom it. "But WHY??" Yes why give up the most meaningful thing in YOUR life? Because it's mine, and I find meaning elsewhere.

What I find interesting there is the use of all capitals in LORD. That has a very specific meaning in many Bibles, as it typically represents the Tetragrammaton. I wonder how that winded up in translations of the Quran. It has to come from a different base word, obviously YHWH would be doctrinally awkward. Perhaps it was "allah" originally.

Are you going to stop Geoblocking?

It's easy enough. Flag repositories containing keywords like "OpenSSL", "AES", "RSA", etc...

That should open up a big chunk like say 60% of your projects immediately open to outside view. Then go through the projects which were flagged manually, sorted by downloads and popularity and just review that it's indeed not for export.

And if a few get through now and then and need to be blacklisted... so what?? Slashdot isn't geoblocked and there's plenty of one line DeCSS Perl decoder sigs and random things like that.

Better to deal with those as they come up than slicing off huge chunks of the planet.

I'm not making this up you morons. Here's another story with the same info this goes back to 2005 at a minimum.

Did I bring anti-drug politics into this? No. I'm simply pointing out this isn't new info, perhaps the specific instruments and scan details are better but the concept is quite old.
