With the 85x10 pack SBC, I was able to build the dream of Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar & Mbappe all in the same team. Sadly I didn't get Bobby Firminho, but this team certainly makes up for it. Hope you had as much luck as I did. See you in 22.

2021.09.21 12:38 helpless11 cleaning PSVR lenses - possible damage to coating?
Hello, I was trying to clean lenses on my PSVR for the first time, and I used the cleaning cloth that came with it, however, I dampened the cloth with the water... which is not recommended (I should have read the manual for cleaning first).
Could I have damaged the protective coating with water? How can I find out? Since then, I have used them once, for a short time, and everything seemed to be okay, but I am not entirely sure...
Would you recommend using this Hama 5604 pen the next time:
I've read some posts where people happened to scratch their lenses just by using lenspen, and supposedly, these pens are not suitable for PSVR lenses (only for camera lenses). But others seem to use them just fine without any issues at all. So what is the truth on that? Thank you!

2021.09.21 12:38 GagaGievous Skinner box mechanics in RPGs: tainting the whole industry
Part of what makes RPGs addicting is how you are rewarded with XP and money for killing enemies, completing quests, and even just discovering locations. This can be fun, but the reasons behind these mechanics in so many games is dark and cynical.
The concept of a Skinner box is that, if rewarded, we will do repetitive tasks for a lot longer. The issue, however, is that the "rewards" I mentioned are not substantial or fulfilling, but base and mechanical. The point is that all it takes to get addicted to repetitive tasks is to get simple rewards.
Which brings us to RPG mechanics. Getting loot and XP and gold for every little task is a part of most RPGs. I have noticed, particularly in modern game design, that these mechanics are used in a cynical way.
I brought this topic up because the last 2 games I have been playing have had exaggerated Skinner box mechanics: Fallout 4 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
In Fallout 4, you get XP for almost anything you do (killing enemies, disarming traps, discovering locations, crafting). This game is often labeled "addicting", and that is because you get base, mechanical rewards for almost every action you take in the game.
In Assassin's Creed, you get XP for killing enemies, discovering locations, and "completing" locations, which rewards you for combing over every land mass in the game. Unlike Fallout 4, you are forced to do "side content" because areas are level locked. And both games have randomized loot, which is another game mechanic added for addiction.
Narrative, as opposed to XP and loot, is one reward that is fulfilling. That's why people can, for example, read books and feverishly turn the pages in anticipation of what happens next. The problem with video games is that video game narratives are typically a lot worse than literature narratives.
Is it any wonder that RPG mechanics are being added to almost every game nowadays? Not really, because creating a well-paced narrative is harder and sells less microtransactions and DLC than a padded, repetitive game like Assassin's Creed. Are people playing these games because they are good, or because the Skinner box mechanics have them addicted to repetitive gameplay?
Tldr There is a time and place for RPG mechanics. I like dungeon crawling games, too. But many games nowadays are using them to mask lackluster gameplay and to pad out game length. I enjoy the narratives in Fallout 4 and Odyssey, but would I have played them for as long if they didn't have Skinner box mechanics? Interesting to think about.

2021.09.21 12:38 leaonidas7 RTPSource "is-sender"
I am building a pipeline in C++ to receive a stream via RTP, and I want to check the stream stats (bitrate, packets received, packets dropped, etc.) during said stream. For that I added a rtpbin after my udpsrc, and got the rtpsource associated with the bin. The thing is, the stats are only updated if the rtpsource has the "is-sender" property set to "true" (read only property), and in my case it's set to false (although the bin sends the data to the pipeline).
Does anyone know what makes the "is-sender" property turn "true", or a workaround to get these stats?
Thanks in advance!

2021.09.21 12:38 Prudent_Improvement4 Meditation hand position
I've been meditating about a year now. When I meditate I have my right hand on the bottom supporting my left hand. I only recently learned that traditionally your left hand is meant to support your right. I've tried it this way but I find it very distracting as it feels very unnatural since I've been doing it the other way for a year.
I'm sure I could get used to this hand position over time, but I'm not sure if it actually really matters or not. I'm curious if anyone has any insight on the topic. Should I put effort into switching so that my left hand is on the bottom in the traditional way, even if it proves to be a distraction for a time? Or is it more or less an irrelevant detail, and I should instead put that effort into deepening the mental aspects of my meditation?
Thanks in advance 🙂
