I assume itís in relation to the claims an ex-girlfriend is making, according to his Wikipedia page.

Dudeís a hardcore porn actor too.

But yeah, I know nothing of the guy, and heís losing work Ďcause of the claims.

The pants-shitting abusive transphobe who occasionally craps out gross RPG supplements, Zak S, is getting litigious. If you play RPGs and haven't heard of the guy, I envy you.
So Iím envied now

It's a good thing

As in, lawsuits are actually happening instead of just internet tough guy blustering.

And he won. And then bragged about it. Because yay commonwealth defamation laws.

His suit against the ex that he abused is apparently still ongoing.

Heeeey, gonna sound weird, but does anyone know, offhandedly, how much influence muslem cutlure had in the development of russian architecture and music?

this is, like, my longest standing drunk question, and Im entertaining it tonight.

At least for the iconic onion-shaped domes, there's some evidence they've been around since in Russia about the time of the mongol invasions. However the problem there is that islamic nations didn't get those sorts of domes for another 2-300 years.

EDIT: Pretty much all the evidence points to Russia taking a large amount of influence from Byzantine architecture, not islamic. Though Islam assimilated a lot of that architecture too, themselves.

As for music, Russian Orthodox music not surprisingly also turns out to heavily influenced by Byzantine music.

For folk music, the most wide-spread influence was actually the Romany, that pervades pretty much everything:

I got a new pendrive today. Its indicator light appears to be violet. While it's not an eye-searing blue, it's still fairly close to blue on the visible spectrum. I don't know what to feel about this color. Should I like that it's not blue for once, or should I deride SanDisk for not just going further and looping all the way to a pleasant red?

You should appreciate it's purple, the Best Color, and discard other considerations. Though being not!blue is a step in the right direction regardless I guess.

Purple? Best Color? I'd disagree, red is Best Color. It's furthest away from blue, the Worst Color, so red must be the Best Color.

I do like purple though, the darker purples are very calming

Even red doesnít think red is the best colour. Anything that appears red absorbs all the other wavelengths but the one that appears red.

I second this. Whoever is behind the stupid high-color-temperature movement needs to be given a stern talking-to.

This even happens in vehicle dashboards these days - lots of white and blue, destroys night vision.  Don't even get me started about the solar-flares as headlights nonsense.

It may seem trivial, but one of the things that influenced my vehicle purchase decision is the dashboard in my vehicle is red-on-black.  The needles are still white, but all the text is red.   Luckily it is "soft" white and I can dim them a ton.

That applies for reflected color, if I understand it correctly. LEDs, though, emit a single wavelength of light (give or take). Red LEDs like the color so much that they only emit red light and basically nothing else so long as they're powered.
