The thing is, I live in a village with 36 houses. I know everyone who lives here - regardless of whether they are hot, single or women. So it comes down to a possible list of one or two people - and they already know me (and the fact that I am married)!

Do you think that the spam may just be auto-generated? :lol:
"Hot Single Mole-People Are Burrowing Up From The Earth's Core To Meet And Enslave You" doesn't have the same ring to it.

In this village, however, that seems more likely. :lol:

These types of spam ads are literally abusing human psychology.

I think they come from a template. It's more likely the message is actually "Hot single women in $CITY_ON_LATEST_KNOWN_ADDRESS are waiting to meet you" and the mailer simply uses token replacement.

If the mailing address that often gets paired with your phone number replaces the "city" with the name of your village - that is probably why that's happening.

I get about 4 different versions of this on turn up most weeks into my spam email folder. My favorite is "Hot (Insert foreign nationality) women are looking for love near (Insert your town)"

This is made funnier by the fact that I live pretty far out in the country and used to have a neighbor with a cat called Love.
I just keep imagining a multi-cultural search party of attractive women with flashlights wandering around the bush trying to find a tabby cat! :lol:

:lol:
A tangentially related, and more uncomfortable story, is that of a family that used to live near my parents house when I was very young. They had a cat, a black cat, and it wasn't too unusual in those less enlightened times for people to name a black coloured pet using a racial pejorative.

I guess at the time very few people really even considered it a problem. However, when a West Indian family moved in next door to them, and the family with the cat were out every night calling their pet by its name then, perhaps, it did become a bit more awkward. :?

What's even more annoying is when they appear as website ads, and the site has Block/Fuck AdBlock. Fuck those sites. An adblocker is basically part of security now, since fake download buttons are becoming more and more common.

Same kind of energy but not the so-called "n word" at all. Another racial insult. Perhaps not quite as offensive... maybe, but still most definitely not acceptable.

Spent about 30 minutes retooling my Vulkan test program to use vk_khr_dynamic_rendering. Two hours of debugging later, I still have no idea why it doesn't work. calling vkBeginRenderingKHR crashes every single time I call it no matter what the info I provide is like. I think I filled out the required red tape of checking for the feature and enabling it, which I think is all you need to do. It reports that it's present, the extension is present, and I try enabling it, but it still crashes. It crashes in the same way if I disable the code to enable the feature for whatever it's worth.

There's only one sign of trouble that shows up, a validation message
Device Extension VK_KHR_dynamic_rendering support is incomplete, incorrect results are possible.
I guess this whole things qualifies as "incorrect results", but they were more extreme than I was expecting. Can I develop with a sane graphics API yet?

EDIT: I took the basic spinning cube demo from the SDK and modified it to load the extension and call the functions. This is extremely simple (it calls them with 0 attachments as I didn't want to port the code), but it doesn't crash. So now it's down to me trying to figure out if the bug lies in my code or within something like Volk. Probably mine, but I also can't figure out where it would happen. Hopefully this isn't too much of a pain to figure out.Well, telling volk to load its functions explicitly from a given device fixed it so... I figured the loader dispatcher would work correctly here, but apparently not. Loading the function pointers explicitly from my device (which isn't a problem since I only have one, of course) made it work. I'm so confused.
