I feel bad for the employees who have to clean that mess.

especially because 1) it will be trashed again in 30 minutes, and 2) they get paid crap

at least, in the end, they rid the world of themselves. MAGAts want everyone else dead.

[ COMMUNITY UPDATE ] - An update on discussing piracy in this community - 2023-08-20 (lemmy.ml)

Since this post was made last week, we’ve gotten a lot of feedback regarding the new policy, and it’s understandable that many of you are unhappy with the restriction. It makes it difficult to discuss how to effectively set up a full Plex server stack which includes a VPN and torrent solution which feed into Sonarr / Radarr...

Plex access and reads files like any other app would. If your, say, file browser can see/read the files, Plex can. So, if your encrypted drive is mounted and accessible to the rest of the system, Plex will be able to access it just fine.

I’d have loved to go all 4k myself, but I just don’t have the storage capacity for it atm. plus, even with my 4K tv, I just don’t see such a huge difference between 4K and 1080. I have a small apt so I don’t have a huge tv. if I did, I’d notice I more, I guess ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I’m still rocking a 2011 iMac for my server a a ghastly 350W. I hate it. it’s slow af, but kills it for my needs, which will hopefully last until I can afford to replace it. it’s been my server for the last 12 years… I ran a - get this - a Pentium 4 4GHz before that as my Plex server!

I remember the summer of ’90 waiting for the conclusion of BoBW seemed like forever!

solidarity to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikers, but I’m sad we’ll have to wait so long :(

It’s really great that they’re working to get the actors their fair share of those streaming residuals.

Have you seen how little they get from Netflix, et al? It’s horrible!

man, I hope this becomes available somewhere, soon.

I agree that this era of Trek is getting overworn, and I’m very ready to focus on another time period with new and different characters. A break will be nice, at last.

I agree with a lot of this. I strongly disliked SNW in the beginning, but it stated to get closer to the TOS “feel”, and that was an improvement. But where they do lots of character work, they do too much, to the point where the stories lack depth. I mean… this is a sci-fi show, but the writers seem to want to make a dramedy set on a starship, and that’s not Trek to me. I want to see the science and tens solving problems together with science! not shooting everything or spending almost the entire episodes between flashbacks and the present, where every. single. thing. is all about working out some personal or interpersonal drama.

out of all of the SNW episodes, maybe 1/4 were actually about exploring space and Trek stuff. the rest are all character drama that’s really exhausting to watch.

S02 found a better balance and helped by making all that drama more “fun”, but the Trek part of the show shouldn’t just be a backdrop or pretext for the characters’ personal drama. I want good sci-fi stories, not convenient setups for will-they-or-won’t-they or having every other episode about dealing with someone’s PTSD. when DS9 did it, they sed a lighter touch so those moments were meaningful. with SNW, it’s everything, and loses meaning.

setting up the whole coin system would create server costs. you can already donate.

that would be a really cool trend to start

well, it would be very geeky, but still cool
