sqlite is exactly what you want. You can even load a CSV file directly into a new table. Everything is a string, it's extremely fast and ubiquitous on moderns OS's.

We thinking this is accurate? I don't remember France being so good at sevens before... must be the Dupont effect

Ooft Ireland tearing it up. Dark horses for the gold?

Good showing by the USA to get a draw vs Dupont powered France

This was kind of like a 1980s movie. The lack of cynicism was refreshing given how gloomy many other recent movies have been.

It was a bit like a mixture of Twin Peaks and an old Italian Giallo horror film. I agree the first half was better than the 2nd half but overall thought it was a good movie. They needed to stick the landing better, some of the Satanic elements came over as cringe instead of creepy.

What were they thinking with the whole “xenomorphs are part human combined with black goo” nonsense in Prometheus? Reminded me of the Star Wars prequels in terms of unnecessary lore. It was still a better movie than Covenant though!

To be fair I enjoyed both… maybe harsh comparing it to Star Wars.

I really like my Series S as a budget console. Picked it up on eBay last year for £150 including shipping.

There were a handful of new games my PC couldn’t play well like Elden Ring so I picked it up for that. Have had a game pass subscription a couple of times, most recently to play Hellblade 2 but I never keep it for more than a month. In the future I’ll probably not use it given the recent price increases.

He would be absolutely nuts to tell the probable future VP of the states that he is a bigot. This is just good diplomacy.

Capcom have to have gotten an up front fee for porting it. This poor sales outcome is way too predictable for them to have bothered porting otherwise.

I find The National frequently embarassing as a Scottish person. Enjoying seeing them squirm here.

This is upsetting to see. I've got a friend with MS and I hope she is not prevented from claiming assistance if (or when) she needs it due to this case causing more stringent checks on claimants.

At least this lady got the jail.

I think Wes might be right here but this is going to cause consternation amongst groups who were hoping that Labour might take a more liberal approach to LGBT issues than the tories.

Apologies for the slightly skewed picture. I actually own this artwork. A close family friend has been collecting 19th Century Japanese woodcuts his entire life, and he gifted this one of a wedding scene to my wife and I when we got married.

More details about the work. The artist Kunisada lived from 1786 to 1864 and he shared a studio / teacher with the (perhaps more famous) artist Kuniyoshi. This work was published by Hayashiya Shogoro in 1850.

The work depicts a Kabuki theatre scene; traditional Japanese theatre. Actors are playing the roles of Aburu-ya Oshin and Fukuoka Mitsugi in the play Ise Ondo. In this scene the couple are getting married.

I guess punditry isn't working out for him with his current image woes. Couldn't find an english source for this one.

Heard the editor being interviewed on Radio4 Today Programme this morning. This 90s throwback is bizarre. Do people really think there will be demand from this after the initial novelty?

I read a couple articles this morning and the "journalism" reads like a Sunday Sport article.

Interesting thought experiment - since the magazine is online only - are the nonces going to have to print out the magazine now to leave it in shubbery for kids to find? Those reddit threads where every man over the age of 40 seems to have a story about finding porn mags in bushes always had a creepy undertone. I'm not sure that the 'porn fairy' commenters sometimes refer to was a very savoury character.

Senua's Saga: Hellblade II: Accessibility Review (www.reviews.sightlesskombat.com)
submitted 1 month ago by [email protected] to c/games

Playing Hellblade 2 at the moment myself. Personally I'm fortunate not to need any of the accessibility features but I found this review to be a fascinating read.

The reviewer also compares the accessibility options to some other recent AAA releases in this reddit comment.

In terms of my opinion of the game: I've only got the Series S version so it's not the full fat graphics but even then they are stunning. I think some of the negative reviews were from people wanting it to be a different type of game, however, if you are aware it is basically a walking simulator with Punchout combat every so often then the story and world takes centre stage. The world is similar to God of War (2018) but grittier and focusing on other aspects of Scandi mythology. I think I like this world more.

EIF tickets are so much more expensive this year. They used to be cheaper seeing the opera during the festival than during the rest of the year due to subsidies from the arts councils. This year it is more than double the price! A ticket for Carmen in the upper circle with a restricted view was more than £100.

Granted, I did have a concession for being under 25 at the time, but I saw La Boheme at the festival a few years ago for £15. In some good news they've raised the concession age threshold to 30 this year but not sure how large a discount it applies.

FWIW I still think that the quality of the EIF is worth the price. Comedy shows in the Fringe can be like ~£25 these days and the quality is extremely variable. Will probably only go and see my mate's show at The Stand this year

Free Fringe can have hidden gems but I've ended up being trapped in some extremely awkward shows with 3 other audience members before. Might be a while before I spin that paeticular roulette wheel again lol.

Tuipulotu is such an asset. Great interview with him and excited to have his brother joining Edinburgh. Hope they got that supposed nonsense with Dave Cherry sorted out!
