You have to pass from retro to vintage to get past that. 😉

If (DE name here) is the most dominant by far but a majority of large distros use it as defaul, is it then most dominant because it is what users want or because it's easiest for the distro designers to push as the default DE?

Did you know that if some application demands a password that looks like a person cursing in Asterix, people will just click "yes" when Edge asks if to save the password and then forget about it, and forget it.

Hats off:

"Billionaire Elon Musk, found dead in his home last night, says it is not the role of social media networks to determine what is true or not.

The Tesla and X owner, who is believed to have died from a heroin overdose while watching animal porn, said he would fight any attempts to stop the spread of misinformation on his platform"


@WhyNotZoidberg@topspicy.social avatar

@pedrobizbikedu @inquiline that would be awful, oh so awful.

A fun effect I have noticed:

I find a lot of kids having an easier time to date say a movie or a photo from before WW2 than say a movie from (or about) the 1960s or 70s which can get a "I think this is set in the 50s" to "I think this is set in the 70s".

(The 80s seems be be unique enough to stand out. Maybe it's the shoulder pads 😜)

GT racing is superior to F1.

Why? Beats me. Cooler cars is a huge factor of course. But then I feel almost all track racing, and of course any kind of rally, is superior to F1.


@WhyNotZoidberg@topspicy.social avatar

@Basmitharts that and F1 is the discipline everyone knows "has limitless budgets", true or not, which a lot of ppl find exciting.

There are lauded lore specialists on YouTube that are amazing at their detective work.

Then there are lore specialists that are missing vital obvious not-even-clues.

I am NOT a lore specialist and the second kind annoys me.

@WhyNotZoidberg@topspicy.social avatar

@rebeccafinn Not at all, for obvious reasons. That said I am always up for plugging Sappho herself as a writer and a poet, and her choice of subjects and way of writing almost makes her a rapper.

“Scientists push new paradigm of animal consciousness”

This is what I discovered while researching my “AI risks” book: we’ve systematically UNDERestimated the intelligence and consciousness of animals while at the same OVERestimating the intelligence of machines and software https://www.nbcnews.com/science/rcna148213

WhyNotZoidberg, (edited )
@WhyNotZoidberg@topspicy.social avatar

@baldur I have seen the same realization several times, and every time I have to wonder... don't these people own pets?

Dad had large Jack Dempsey ciclids when I was a kid in the 70s, and they recognized faces thru the glass. At quite a distance, too. It was quite obvious that they did.

How can anyone who has a dog be surprised by the intelligence in animals?

Oh and btw, I find it amazing people think software can be intelligent. We need another word for software than "smart".

Rewatching episode 5 of #Fallout and realizing a detail... The radroaches that land on a flat surface hits their head into the ground, as if their legs are slighly too weak to handle the landing of their oversized bodies. If intentional, that is a very cool detail.

I have said it before: The problem is not the profession of traffic engineering, it is that PROPER traffic engineering (in cities and towns) must actually take the studies that exist in account, just not "add another lane" as that never ever helps (well it helps if you add turning lanes, but that's about it).

@zenhob Of course Matt Gertz (the former MS guy not the other... person) had to step in in the comments and try to defend it.

Once a Tech Bro always a tech bro.

I am beginning to think a large chunk of "tech innovators", "tech journalists" and "tech bros" are basically cult members hell bent on destroying civilization.

I have worked with computers all my life, and have scoffed at Sci-Fi visions like these.

But I guess with an attitude like mine the Torture Nexus won't ever be ready, huh?
