"The image shows a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun."

Is it possible to be auto-forwarded to the classic server when one tries to connect to the DM server and it's full? Is this something that you'd be OK with, quadz? If this isn't possible, or isn't something you want to see happen, is it possible to give them a message like, "DM server full? Try the "classic" server instead!"

Looking over SVC_DirectConnect() in sv_main.c, it appears there is indeed a cvar called sv_redirect_address which may be used for this purpose.

So it's a possibility.

A concern is that it will break WallFly, randomly. Once in awhile, WallFly loses its slot when the map changes, and has to reconnect. If the server were full, WallFly would get redirected to the wrong server and remain stuck there indefinitely.

This is enough of a concern that I'm reluctant to try it out.

(BTW, be careful what you wish for: If I did try it, I'd probably redirect to my favorite server instead, i.e. vanilla. :) )

It was pretty funny. Check out Anderson Cooper's reply to it.

It's becoming weird to watch individuals with a talent for reading prepared texts. :dohdohdoh:

Reminded me of mathematician Eric Weinstein's "Four Quadrant Model"

https://everipedia.org/wiki/lang_en/four-quadrant-model-eric-weinstein/

"The Four Quadrant Model is a tool used to examine how the media upholds the status quo by stigmatizing people who hold views that challenge it and portray them as prejudiced or intolerant. […] Once the pattern is seen, however, it cannot be unseen, […] realizing that you have been repeatedly controlled by a single trick tying your virtue to a thwarting of your own interests"

Was frankly amazed this video had been created nearly two years ago.

This "classic" from 1999 has since been cited in over 100 subsequent sociology papers (per Google scholar search.)

Seems odd today's adults are expected to apologize for edgy posts they made decades ago as 15-year-olds.

I use yamagi, triec q2pro but the current that i compiled from source has no option to invert mouse, thus unplayable for me.

Q2 inverts mouse by inverting the m_pitch cvar. Just tested this in q2pro.

Try: set m_pitch -0.022

(And may GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL, what is this, a flight simulator?)  ;)

Maybe the grand crayonun, Napa valley, or Gwam.

If you visit Guam, bring a life preserver.
