I started lemdro.id. Pretty cool domain name, right?

I feel like Dune was a good outlier to this. It’s the only movie I’ve seen in theater in the last few years and I really enjoyed not having everything explained to me

The first Dune movie was pretty good imo

Lives ARE on the line. It was faulty software that caused the Boeing 737 Max to crash twice, killing 346 people. Software runs your car, the trains, rockets, literally everything.

you can get an ePLB (emergency personal locator beacon) which has no subscription since it is an international coalition for rescue. don’t need to pay garmin or whatever for that b.s. and it uses special satellites to locate you so it’s very reliable. This is what ships and planes use to signal distress as well.

also, instances can change their default UI. lemdro.id defaults to photon for example

probably a good choice. I don’t know how an apple car would fit into apples current stack, they’d have to figure out maintenance and everything

It’s No Surprise That “Skills-Based” Hiring Has Not Worked (www-forbes-com.cdn.ampproject.org)

This article outlines an opinion that organizations either tried skills based hiring and reverted to degree required hiring because it was warranted, or they didn’t adapt their process in spite of executive vision....

to be fair, software engineers are a lot more design heavy than implementation. software developers are the “implementers” where software engineers generally focus on the bigger picture as well

not based on arch. I’ve heard it’s based on Debian though

House China committee demands Elon Musk open SpaceX Starshield internet to U.S. troops in Taiwan (www.cnbc.com)

The House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party sent a letter on Saturday to SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk demanding that U.S. troops stationed in Taiwan get access to SpaceX's Starshield, a satellite communication network designed specifically for the military....

that seems pretty stupid, should we also seize Amazon Kuiper when they start launching very soon?

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

This is crazy talk. Anybody can smuggle some terminals into their country. That doesn’t mean they’re being “helped”. The US government would come down on SpaceX with unprecedented force if they violated sanctions like that

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

I’d love to better understand your position. it seems like you think that Starlink is aware of who is using a terminal. how can Starlink differentiate between a Ukrainian and Russian user in the same general area? should Starlink randomly turn off user terminals it suspects? what if it accidentally turns off a Ukrainian one? billing is obv not a good indicator

I want to understand your thoughts a little more clearly on this

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

I don’t think that’s where the problem I’m raising is. Think about an active confrontation area where both sides have Starlink. How do you tell which to turn off in this case? Ideally Ukraine would be using starshield and then Starlink can be turned off entirely

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

that doesn’t seem to support your assertion. blocking terminals in a specific geographic location (crimea) doesn’t explain how to tell apart two sides using terminals in the same geographic area

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

On an active battlefront these territories aren’t strictly defined or are changing quickly. With that methodology if Ukrainian advanced too quickly into what was previously Russian territory, bam - Starlink stops working. That seems undesirable

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

Starlink terminals in Ukraine didn’t come from one source. some have been donated by orgs in the US and other countries, some the government, some SpaceX themselves. Ukraine almost certainly doesn’t have full knowledge of all the Starlink terminals it possesses. This isn’t an ideal environment

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

No. What I’m saying is that due to the fast-shifting geographic nature of a battlefront, and the lack of organization in where the user terminals have come from: (A) Starlink would have a hard time keeping up with a precise map (and would be prone to errors, and would need exact operational data) (B) Ukraine doesn’t completely KNOW what terminals are theirs

So a geographic location block would be a hindrance for Ukrainian troops when trying to advance, and potentially dangerous when Russians advance into Ukrainian territory. Boundaries would constantly need to be redrawn, requiring exact knowledge of what is happening. Which for obvious reasons should not be shared

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

I feel like you are fundamentally misunderstanding me. Battle lines are not static or cut and dry. Neither militaries KNOW exactly where the enemy is. It isn’t that simple

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

I have no clue how you’re coming to that conclusion. Starlink blanket blocked access from Crimea. Regardless of whether that was right or wrong, this doesn’t prove that Starlink knows where Russian and Ukrainian troops, can track the battle line, and precisely turn off access based on that geographic area

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

Look, I don’t know if you’re being intentionally obtuse here, but not all areas are black and white. There is ambiguity in the world, particularly in battlefields. This feels a bit like a bad faith argument

cole,
@cole@lemdro.id avatar

Man, wtf. If Starlink is shut down in areas Russia already controls (it largely is), then what is the problem???

Starlink doesn’t have fine control over what they can turn off, the world is separated into “cells”. Starlink can’t broadly turn off Starlink for ONLY Russians on the battle lines, it would affect Ukrainians too

[COMPLETE] Photon UI rollout

I am rolling out the Photon UI as a replacement to the default lemmy UI right now. Initially, only about 50% of requests will be routed to Photon, determined by a hash of your IP address and user agent (sorry for any inconsistencies…). As I determine that this configuration is stable I will be slowly increasing the percentage...

strange. federation stats show they’re marked as alive and we’ve federated activities as recently as a few minutes ago
