The glove box is for your registration, proof of insurance, and a collection of assorted useless bullshit that you’ll see once a year, and clean out maybe twice for as long as you own the car.

That cheap keychain you bought? Glove box.

Three tire pressure gauges that don’t work very well? Glove box.

Throw in a dull utility knife, some electrical tape, fuses that don’t fit your car, a blinker bulb, expired mints or chewing gum, a Bic lighter, and a clicky pen you got for free for going to something, and you’ve got a well-stocked compartment.

It’s the junk drawer in your kitchen, but for your car.

Hmm… Wonder if it’ll be easier to chip every newborn, or barcode the back of the neck?

I set my OpenAlias up on my own by following instructions online, and it cost me nothing. Why would one pay you, an unknown centralized entity, for something that can be done in 15 minutes for free?

If you submerge completely you’d be okay for a few seconds, as the fire is only on the surface.

Unless your bathtub is in an empty parking lot, I don’t suggest any scientific endeavors.

He was probably this way before his stroke, and his wife and the DNC campaigned for him and got him elected as a megaliberal, which he seems to never have been…

Now all the Dems know how us moderate conservatives felt when Trump got elected and did all the same shit as all his predecessors.

I haven’t heard anything controversial about Garrity. She seems like she’s doing a good job signing checks and watching the books.

Fairbuds are Fairphone’s proof that we really could make better tiny gadgets (arstechnica.com)

But of course we all know that the big manufacturers don’t do this not because they can’t but because they don’t want to. Planned obsolescence is still very much the name of the game, despite all the bullshit they spout about sustainability.

When I shopped for wireless earbuds, I spent a half hour comparing the top brands (most expensive), so I ended up asking the clerk what he used (saw one in his ear). The ones he recommended were $20 and they’re great, sound decent, and last all day.

Sometimes cheap is just as good.

Anyone else find this annoying? (sh.itjust.works)

That the labels for the apps get truncated so you can only read “Proton” plus the first letter of the app. I’m only able to distinguish based on the icons which isn’t great because Pass and Drive are similar colors, and Pass and VPN, and Drive and Calendar are similar shapes.

Can you link to LW’s definition of disposable addresses?

Wikipedia is gauging interest for an extension that uses AI to see if any claim is cited on Wikipedia (meta.wikimedia.org)

A prototype is available, though it's Chrome-only and English-only at the moment. How this'll work is you select some text and then click on the extension, which will try to "return the relevant quote and inference for the user, along with links to article and quality signals"....

It says the user has to highlight then click the extension.

I can currently right-click and then click “Search on Wikipedia” in the context menu. I believe this works in both FF and chromium browsers.

Fuck AI.

I feel like I remember seeing somewhere that the entirety of Wikipedia can be downloaded? (Use offline)

You’d have to update periodically for newer articles.

The government should never be in control of a means of free speech. You know who has Government-controlled internet?

Russia Iran China N Korea India Some EU countries Turkey Etc.

Interoperability law that only applies to one company. Neat.

This tells me a few things.

  1. One man has no reaction to that type of vaccine. So, either it works perfectly, or is perfectly worthless.
  2. Nobody is really tracking these vaccines.
  3. 216 other people might not have gotten a needed shot because this dipshit likes needle pricks, and it was cheaper than acupuncture.

I think every node needs the same dataset for the blockchain to be valid.

Maybe a rolling dataset, with the earliest transactions falling off after their data is somehow archived (but accessible to the current nodes)?

OR

The current nodes could do a hardfork (NewNodes), with the ability to reference the legacy chain snapshot for the next X years.

Wallet1 created in 2015. Contains 1 XMR. Hardfork in 2025 to truncate the entire DB which becomes a balance reference copy. After the snapshot, they would have a balance on the “new” chain. In order to transact, they’d have to use a New Node which knows their previous balance from the legacy chain.

Is that possible?
