2022.01.20 15:00 MyNameIsRobPaulson Leemon, April 2021: "The patent is becoming much less important over time, so when it expires - who cares". He also explains state proofs a technical control that prevents hard-forking.
Lots of fear of this decision being out of nowhere, or some type of corporate coup to usurp hashgraph IP - but if you dig, this goes right along with what Leemon has always said. They most likely just didn't want to make any definitive statements about going open source until the "less and less important" became completely unimportant.
From the April 2021 Townhall:
Q: Does Hedera's no fork guarantee extend to after the hashgraph expires, and if so does it?
Leemon: Yeah so this is cool - At the beginning it was very important that we have a multi-pronged approach to stop forking, and over time, the patent part of that is becoming less and less needed, because the other parts are becoming more and more important.
So what we have is a council that is amazing. We have the majority now of the 39 there are 20 [now 25], and this makes up a majority of 39, and they're really big names. This council has turned out far better than you might have expected on day one. It's just amazing. And so, it looks like of hard to build a council like this. You know, you look at other projects, and it looks like it's difficult to get a council like this - they aren't just advisors, they're actually governing and they're really big names. This brings a lot of trust.
It would be hard to fork, because the fork wouldn't have such a council and I was just talking a second ago [previous question in the Q&A] about the cryptographic proofs that the history is correct. It's not just showing that it's changed the chain together like you would with a history of a blockchain, it's actually showing that this particular council was signing off on it at each of those points. The digital signatures themselves are part of it. And so if there's a fork, no one could ever fool you into thinking that other fork is the real one because the signatures wouldn't be on that other fork. And so the technical ability here is really powerful, and that's what the state proofs that we have right now with our mirror nodes.
And we'll even go further - we have state proofs for every query. And so, we have these technical abilities - and then the updates themselves to the software and the updates to the address book that controls who is running a node - those themselves are controlled by the network itself in a way that ensures that you couldn't really fork and fool people.
If you ever tried to fork, everybody would know that it was a fork and that it wasn't the real one. So you could easily have software, when we have the individual state proofs, you'll have software on your phone - that every time you ask us "what's my balance?" or, "who owns this house?", "who owns this NFT?", you'll be guaranteed that you're talking to the real network and not to a disgruntled node that used to be part of us but now is part of a different network, or maybe part of both at the same time. You'll be guaranteed cryptographically that that's not happening because you'll essentially have signatures from our our whole network agreeing.
And so we have more and more over time really powerful anti-forking guarantees, so the part of the patent is becoming much less important over time, so when it expires - who cares, and these other ones are turning out to be really powerful."
In summary, the technical controls that prevent hard forking are:

2022.01.20 15:00 Psyonix_Ted Neon Night Celebrates The Music of Rocket League
Cars have always been the main event in Rocket League, but a strong second is the game’s musical legacy. To celebrate our ever-evolving soundtrack, we’re introducing a new in-game event called Neon Nights that includes exciting Challenges, Golden Moons, a chaotic LTM, and unlockable Items featuring the immortal space princess GRIMES.
In collaboration with GRIMES' upcoming space opera, a super-intelligent deep space AI will begin transmitting Challenges directly into your life-sim, allowing you to unlock GRIMES-themed items. If our calculations are correct, they should arrive on Earth Wednesday, Jan. 26 at 9 a.m. PST (5 p.m. UTC)!
You’ll be ready to join the machines with the Gravitator and Space Queen Toppers, Braided Trail, GRIMES Decal, GRIMES Wheels, and GRIMES Player Banner. We’re also remixing some old favorites with the Fireworks (Multichrome) Universal Decal and Uncanny Boost. The future has arrived in force, but you’ll have a chance to showcase your humanity and unlock two new Player Anthems from GRIMES' upcoming album: "Player of Games" and "Shinigami Eyes."
And speaking of AI, it seems that aimbots have taken over the Rocket Labs Arenas! Jump into a wild match of Heatseeker Ricochet and go head-to-head in this chaotic LTM.
Throughout Neon Nights, you’ll also get a chance to earn Golden Moons, which unlock a mix of classic items from the Impact, Nitro, and Overdrive Item Series. Golden Moons work just like Golden Gifts from Frosty Fest. Complete the Challenge up to five times to earn Golden Moons, then open them in your Inventory to unlock items!
And finally, in celebration of Lunar New Year, the Rocket League team wishes everyone a 2022 filled with happiness, prosperity, and longevity. We’re also offering the Year of the Tiger Free Bundle in the Item Shop featuring the fearless Tiny Tiger Topper and Tyger Decal.
Neon Nights will be bumping from Jan. 26 to Feb. 8, so sit back, buckle up, and pre-save “Shinigami Eyes” HERE!

2022.01.20 15:00 Christoast24 Getting an ERROR message when I try to start Plex Media Server on PC
Hey guys, last night I exited out of my plex media server with the intent to basically start it up again (I was having issues changing posters on a show and thought restarting it might fix it, but since then every time I try and open it again I get the ERROR image attached. I've tried restarts and fresh installs and have come up empty every time.
After reading around a bit I thought the issue might be that my Plex files are all on my E: drive, and maybe the server wasn't able to find them once I exited it initially. I have my Plex server with all the metadata and stuff set up on my E: drive, and I know for some reason Plex only lets you install on the C: drive, so I'm wondering if that's the issue. I'd set that up earlier this year using this guide: https://forums.plex.tv/t/howto-an-extended-guide-on-how-to-move-the-plex-data-folder-on-windows/197060/99
but I'm afraid to go through those steps again in case I lose all my metadata and stuff. I've already had to redo this thing a bunch of times and I'm not looking forward to doing it again. I've also checked the registry editor and it's still pointing to the correct spot on my E: drive. Is there a way I can fix this without losing everything and having to redo my libraries from scratch?
I've also included pictures of what the folder on my C: drive looks like, and my E: drive, in case that helps.

2022.01.20 15:00 whoisorange Does anyone have a cat they simply cannot touch?
In November 2021 we adopted 2 bonded boys that were taken from a house with 60 other animals - they were very under socialized. They were around 1 month old when we got them and with some time, patience and space one of them (Morty!) came around quickly and is now a love bug that follows me everywhere, but the other (Cairo!) has never allowed us to touch him. (We sneak pets from time to time, but he’s never happy about it)
But here’s the thing, he’s happy and healthy and we know he feels safe in our home and around us. Plus him and Morty are best friends and take care of each other. There’s just a part of Cairo’s animal brain that won’t let our hands breach those final 2 inches. We’re ok with this seemingly one-sided relationship, the biggest issues arise when it’s time to see the vet, but we handle those as they come.
So I’m curious if anyone else has a happy, healthy, silly, brave kitty that they just never touch?? How do you feel about it?

2022.01.20 15:00 xCAS9 Solo Q'ing Tip: Always carry impact grenades.
Impact grenades can remove the yellow thingy that sticks on you. Just impact nade on your legs or whatever, it doesn't damage you much and it is the only way to get rid of the yellow thingy around you.
Also sometimes rando's doesn't shoot or melee the yellow thingy on you, your impacts are your best friend.
