“Bashiok”, a World of Warcraft community manager, wrote in a very nice way about why people act with vitriol on the internet.
One cause is a cognitive bias called projection bias. Essentially living inside your own head your entire life makes it exceedingly difficult to understand how others do not also live your same life, think your same thoughts, and hold your same beliefs. In many cases it’s quite frustrating to try to empathize and understand why you yourself may not be the center of the universe, which generally results in one ‘acting out’ in various ways. We’re all guilty of this behavior. There are also brain-chemical reasons that exist to help us form tighter bonds with those like us (safety in numbers), but be antagonistic against those not like us (self preservation). We all do this to some degree every day.
So, in short: the internet.
I wanted to essplain but too but there was too much. Let me sum up also. TL;DR …”GIFT”
Here’s a way to mass invite everyone in the Dungeon Browser. Say for.. Celestials?
Open up the dungeon browser, (obviously accessed on the “other raid” button of raid tab in social window.. sheesh) choose the boss you want to do, wait a moment for a name to show up then run the script.
/script local n,t=SearchLFGGetNumResults();for i=1,n do local x=SearchLFGGetResults(i); InviteUnit(x); end
When streaming from “other countries” sometimes you’ll find there’s no menu option to get rid of the subtitles.. There is a way to force them off though:
Open notepad and save an empty .txt file to your documents folder. Then change it to .dfxp. Name it whatever you want to.. “nosubs.dfxp” for example. The name doesn’t really matter.
Start the movie/TV show you want to watch.
Back to your movie on Netflix now.. hold down Shift+Alt (or Shift+Opt for Macs) and left click on the screen showing the movie. That should bring up the diagnostics menu. If not try it in full screen mode.
Choose “Load Custom DFXP File”.
Load your empty .dfxp file and the subtitles will be gone.
Ever fumble around trying to plug in a USB device only to get it wrong seemingly way more than the 50% of the time you should? Next time just take a quick look at the “seam” on the USB plug. In a standard installation of a USB port.. that seam goes on the bottom. Now you know.
