Maybe because I've been subjugated by a CPAP that doesn't look so bad to me.

The smart home company Insteon has vanished.

The entire company seems to have abruptly shut down just before the weekend, breaking users' cloud-dependent smart-home setups without warning. Users say the service has been down for three days now despite the company status page saying, "All Services Online." The company forums are down, and no one is replying to users on social media.

If you don’t care about superman or video games, you should still watch a bit of this footage of the Matrix City Unreal Engine 5 demo. It was released on PC and a single game dev decided to make a super-man flight sim (being one person is both why super-man isn’t polished and there’s no complex interactions).

More importantly, once it takes a bit of time to load everything in, this is all being rendered in real time, and while the city does have assorted oddities and you can’t take a wander through every building, this is just the start of what I think will change things like movies and TV along with gaming.

Wow. That's the first I've heard of the Unreal Engine 5 and that looks amazing. I might have to start gaming again.

Musk is looking to back out of his attempt to overshadow Tesla losses and a sexual assault allegation, due to twitter not providing details as to how they count bot accounts.

No word if Twitter will sweeten the deal by offering Musk a horse.

Default Re: Bits and PCs - a Computers and Tech Miscellany

I gave up and started using my actual work laptop for work-from-home.

It's not a bad thing. I had been using my Mac, but remote desktop is currently broken on the Mac, and I can't get Mac->PC remote desktop to use all my screens. That and the keyboard confusion sometimes gets to me - some common PC key combinations (like control-left/right arrow) don't get sent to the PC desktop. Using a PC keyboard on the Mac reduces some of the issues but not all.

So, I reassigned my keyboard and mouse to the work laptop. The laptop screen's not as nice as the Mac, but it's fine, and I can use both screens without issue.
