Re: Video Filter Effects
They're very good. This is from a few years back and I am sure it's improved.

The thing is there isn't room to dig for a lot of the suburbs in places Thailand and Vietnam.
The areas people live behind the main roads are a maze of alleys ranging from just big enough to fit a car to just about wide enough for a scooter.
You start digging up that to lay cable and you could end up shutting offf access to the homes of hundreds of people, some of these alleys as well have loads of front yard shops, markets and so on. The disruption caused is impractical.
Underground there's probably just enough room for standard sewage and water pipes only before you hit building foundations.
In top of that. I've never had fibre in the UK, but copper was just a swtich over at a junction box. There doesn't seem to be any main faculty that oversees that sort of handover here. Change isp, new cable gets laid and it's such a tangle of cables that removing the old is probably like a game of jenga except you take out everyone's Internet when the whole tangle falls down.
Also Google maps just falls over in some of these places I'm not sure if there are adequate maps in general.
Ah yeah maybe it's where we see factories being placed. Where I have been living there are a lot of old
factories that are smack bang in the middle of a small town. Different suburban environment to the USA so bit if adapting needed to each place.
So I think from your comments we may be on the same page (we don't really have small local malls in the UK in these little dying towns).
I think there is still use for a co-working space for these places because not everyone working from home can always work at home, so a local co-working type space using these local empty large buildings may have a place as a temp peaceful office with a five min walk commute.
The dead end town centres that will be re-invigorated, the enironment becoming cleaner due to less cars, think of the little independent cafes, coffee shops and reseteraunts who will actually pay taxes, think of people having more free time to spend in them rather than commuting, think of the old factory buildings that can become local co-working type spaces, think of cities becoming more places to visit for enterainment and being able to afford some green spaces instead of car parks...
I have no idea why you dragged QAnon and MTG into this, But I can assure you the connection has not been that bad in Vietnam in the past few years. In fact a lot better than my connection was in the UK in both mobile and househol It has however downgraded severly in the past few week, juist after new year as it were.
It was after new year that the connection really started to be a problem, was closer to Tet in Feb. As it is mobile seems to get a better connection than cable. But using an apartments WiFi when everyone comes home is a nightmare because they tend to share one line between the apartments.
I think your proving my point really it's just the scale you're used to that let's you perceive what is hot or cold.
I would have had no clue what 63 was if you hadn't put it in C, also by my experience I doubt many people notice the granularity of a half degree C difference that much when it come to too hot or too cold for temp settings.
Born in '72. It's weird, depending on what I am thinking off I can only visualise certain things one way easily. Like people's height, my wife is 149.8 cm but I don't know how short that is until I go oh four foot eleven. Meanwhile if wanting to measure a doorway I need metres to get the idea.
I often see the arguement Celsius doesn't make sense as a temp measurement from Americans because they know that 32F is cold whereas 0 degrees makes no sense they don't know if they need a coat.
The mind is an odd thing.
IMO ERP systems are terribly complicated, it may look like a bunch of different databases stuck together with connectors, some predictive analytics and so on that make changes in other databases e.g stock is down, lead time is x, manufacturing needs y amount to meet demand, therefore order z now, but sales is expecting maybe a, from predictions b, .
But in reality it's likely that each of those sperate modules is going to have to be designed not just by software engineers but someone that understands the type of work and process that go into each space as a SME, i.e your manufacturing guy is not just going to need to know your processes, but everything about manufacturing engineering thgeories including edge case scenarios and how to work with software devs and architects. Decent size companies will balk at manufacturing their own CRM because of how tricky it becomes, thats just one module working alone, not slotted into a ERP system.
By the time you have done that your probably more a massive software house than an actual manufacturer of plastic monsters.
Except they do have NATO support and training, and NATO will quite likely happily play the great game. Getting rid of their old end of life we needed to destroy it soon anyway stocks, cherfully assesing their weapons againts the scenarios they built them for, and chewing up the very threat they pretty much came together for in the first place.Why stop bankrolling that?
You didnt mention what part of your country you'd give up.
Aside from actual engineering accuracy of physical objects, they also tend to be pretty handy in bringing a lot of sensor data such as equipment usage, wear, movement around the environment and so on Into a more cohesive visual interface which seems to work better with people than a endless series of seperate dashboards and data streams.
They underestimate the skills and experience needed or don't value it.
I have been asked about development of a robust commercial grade IOT data storage, platforms, digital twins, and the like and a often asked question after hearing typical wages costs goes along the lines of, "can't we just get someone fresh from university to do it"?
It's like that 5yrs of experience you don't want to pay for? That wasn't them sitting on their bum it's not a static job skill, they were actually learning and improving.
I agree here, I like using power automate TBH, its very useful for some things and it slots in nicely with office and so on, and its the same with things like connectors. Some of them are really useful, some of them are great for the average user.
But they are blocks of code that do a very specific thing, yes you can tweak them and play around a bit. But you can almost end up having to spend as much time figuring out something as it would to actually have someone write some code, and anyone diving that deeply into tweaking it is probably not the average office user low code is aimed at anyway.
Once you start to go past a certain point of complexity, it's either not possible to build it with these blocks or it becomes a monstrosity of hacks cobbled together just waiting to fall over.
Good point, I liked them both actually.
The Lynch one for its glorious weirdness and baroque set design.
The recent one because it felt truer to the book and just spectacular visuals the bit flying over the city was alsmot vertigo inducing in imax.
Plus Denis Villeneuve is in my good books for not fucking up the Bladerunner sequel.
No I want them to be free and open, everyone should be able to put money in the butter box, and to use it to tag a meme and pump the value. To make it easier I'll make it all unregulated (but don't worry you can trust me it won't be a ponzi or anything that's boomer shit), hell I'll even put some of my money in the butter box so you can see how much its owrht. But you better jump in now before it takes off any higher.
From the official teaser video that alludes to the famous ad 1984, a young man finally breaks the fruit phone's supremacy. VERTU is implying that a new order has formed as a digital revolution based on WEB 3.0 is about to break out.
