If the price was even relatively sane I would be okay with that honestly.

But no, they need to keep driving the price up and up. I have to pay my part so that little Jimmy can host 297 hours of white noise on his account that no one wants to watch.

They simply need to change their tactics a little. It cost you some small sane amount to host your videos there. If your videos don’t g gather watches and make money you should be the one paying for them.

I want to pay about nine bucks a month for a family account it’s just b-f rate content. You can pay less to get actual well rated movies from other services.

Also give me the option not to throw in Google music I don’t give a s*** about Google music.

Docker is awesome for a lot of things. But it’s not particularly good for RAM.

If you just want to browse the web and edit work documents you have nothing to fear.

If you just want a game and don’t want to be too awfully picky about what you’re playing you have nothing to fear

If you want to play anti-cheap games and host docker components you’re going to have to do a little console here and there.

If you want to stream to YouTube and twitch, You’re probably not going to have as much of a good time. You can still do it but there’s work and compromises involved.

OBS background removal in Linux is bad.

In about half a dozen distros VFL does not work out of the box for OBS.

If you flat pack your OBS and don’t do it exactly right with all the plugins at once, the plugin sandbox causes issues in OBS.

If you’re running an OBS bot camera things get extra spicy.

In most cases high color support is not allowed.

If you’re trying to do stream Deck stuff that can be an issue.

Don’t get me wrong I’m glad it wasn’t a big deal for you but for your average person coming in complaining that terminals are too much, they might be in for a less than stellar experience.

Trump allies launch secretive scheme to divide Biden support: report (www.msn.com)

Saw this today, and … well, I’m not going to be so forgiving to people suggesting to vote Third Party rather than vote for Biden. If Trump wants me to do something, and you want me to do that same something, that tells me you’re aligned with Trump.

Secret? Their playbook literally has four bullet points and this is #2.

I think the concept is if you own enough exit nodes and you have monitors at the backbone level you can correlate traffic with time-based attacks.

The current number of people using tor in a given time isn’t so insurmountable that you can’t throw a couple of data centers worth of VMs at The problem and they’ve had backbone monitoring for decades.

The thing is, the feds aren’t going to come knocking at your door because you are downloading movies. The MPAA figured out a long time ago that it’s a losing battle going after individual people downloading/uploading. If you were trying to use tor to hide behind doing things to harm other people, running terrorist networks and the like, there’s a reasonably good chance they could track you down if you were just using tour but they’d have to really want to do it, and that’s not going to happen for Steve’s half terabyte of CSI.

As soon as anyone starts arguing in bad faith I just block them. I don’t really care what they have to say about me for my argument.

linearchaos,
@linearchaos@lemmy.world avatar

I would love better blocking. But I understand the costs of doing that in a truly federated environment. I’ll just settle for not caring what they actually say about me. The whole point of the trolling is to get a rise out of someone.

Google nearly went through trouble to make sure that takeout is a pain in the ass to import anywhere else.

As a matter of fact anytime I use any company’s product and try to export it from there and import it somewhere else it goes horribly wrong.

I don’t want my text documents in HTML.

All fine and good except those 57 companies encompass 80% of all fossil fuel business right?

I’m not saying it doesn’t need to be fixed, but I am saying that it’s misleading.

linearchaos,
@linearchaos@lemmy.world avatar

That’s a nice dream. I hope it can come true, but those 57 companies also own 90% of the US Congress and probably a large swath of the governments in 2nd and third-world countries. The people that need to make them stop are almost literally on their payroll.

Trumpism Is Emptying Churches: The former president’s embrace of White Christian militantism coincides with a precipitous decline in religious affiliation in the US (www.bloomberg.com)

Donald Trump, a 77-year-old Bible salesman from Palm Beach, Florida, has emerged as the nation’s most prominent Christian leader. Trump is running for president as a divinely chosen champion of White Christians, promising to sanctify their grievances, destroy their perceived enemies, bolster their social status, and grant them...

If he doesn’t get in this is a foregone conclusion. Untaxable donations, tax shelter for purchases. Every Trump property will become a church campus, every collection attempt religious oppression.

It comes with a working config.

Adding applications and rebuilding is generally trivial.

The problem becomes if you want to use flakes or home manager, which you probably should. The config for those is complicated and poorly documented.

I don’t know the programming language. I’ve been running it for about a month now. If you’re not doing anything complicated or doing any crazy conditionals or running one config for 27 boxes it’s no different than editing a yaml.

It took me about 2 days to get Nvidia working properly with offloading that was my hardest task so far.

Load up a live CD of your distro in your VM. Install a browser. Load up all your plugins, bookmarks, sites, when you have it completely how you want it, tarball your Firefox config folder to a USB drive.

The next time you want to use it, start the live CD again and untar the tarball back in your config directory. Anytime you want to update it, just remake the tarball.

It’s ephemeral, no logs are stored, you have almost no chance of accidentally loading the wrong thing.

I’m pretty sure everybody knows it’s not just a couple of developers by themselves churning out windows. Even the project managers are just following orders. Marketing sets the tone upper management picks the path.

Court Bans Use of 'AI-Enhanced' Video Evidence Because That's Not How AI Works (gizmodo.com)

A judge in Washington state has blocked video evidence that’s been “AI-enhanced” from being submitted in a triple murder trial. And that’s a good thing, given the fact that too many people seem to think applying an AI filter can give them access to secret visual data.

linearchaos,
@linearchaos@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah, this is a really good call. I’m a fan of what we can do with AI, when you start looking at those upskilled videos with a magnifying glass… It’s just making s*** up that looks good.

Amazon Ditches 'Just Walk Out' Checkouts at Its Grocery Stores (gizmodo.com)

Amazon is phasing out its checkout-less grocery stores with “Just Walk Out” technology, first reported by The Information Tuesday. The company’s senior vice president of grocery stores says they’re moving away from Just Walk Out, which relied on cameras and sensors to track what people were leaving the store with.

linearchaos,
@linearchaos@lemmy.world avatar

The automated walk out service wasn’t a con. It was a shortsighted, honestly s***** idea, that was never able to be brought past the human oversight stage.

Con requires intent. I’m absolutely certain they fully intended to make it a completely humanless system. They failed and drug their feet trying and now they’ve shut it down.

If it’s a con, what’s their long game? What are they gain from having humans watch the store remotely? Is it tech just so neat that they’ll have a lot more shoppers than a regular store? Do they save so much in on-site staff that it’s cheaper to run than a conventional store? There’s no advantage here that would make it a worthwhile con. It’s a failed moonshot that they ended up manning with people to see if they could make it work that’s all.

Dems who censured Rep. Tlaib over Palestine comments largely silent on GOP Rep's call for nukes (www.thehandbasket.co)

I reached out to spokespeople for all 22 Democrats Monday morning with a simple inquiry: I wanted to know if they planned to make a statement or take any sort of action—like a censure—against Rep. Walberg for his call for the destruction of Gaza....

It’s a give and take honestly.

System-d has better logging. Until you have something that needs to really really log. You can argue that if you have something that’s that dependent on logging it shouldn’t be logging through the console but it’s worked fine for decades. Auto pruning of logs isn’t necessarily ideal. Getting console logs and assist logs as a pain in the ass.

Same goes for service dependencies we had this sorted it was answered via run levels and naming. It wasn’t necessarily the most elegant solution but it was simple and there was very little to go wrong.

The tools to manage the services and logs are needlessly complicated. Service start, service stop, service status, service log, service enable, service disable. And I shouldn’t have to reload the Daemon every time I make a change.

This isn’t to say that it’s all bad. It’s flexible, and for most workflows, it’s very automated and very light touch. The other pruning on the log file says probably saved a lot of downtime, a whole lot of downtime.

It’s really well suited to desktop.

Service creation is somewhat easier.

Dependencies are more flexible than run levels.

To be honest I wouldn’t go out of my way to run in a non-system distro but I would feel a little sigh of relief if something I was screwing with was still init.d

Yeah, we’re heavily leaning toward making borrowing easy to the point that any security breach puts us at risk. It’s trivial with just a little private data to take out a loan or buy a car in someone else’s name. It really sucks.
