couragethebravedog,

Don’t they make money by charging massive servers a fee ?

Those who have been on prescribed stimulants for many years (>5), how do you manage tolerance and crashing?

I have been on ADHD meds for about 7.5 years now. I started with Vyvanse and my dose was at 70mg in the first year. I was having bad crashes at night, so I switched to Adderall 40mg with 10mg Dexidrine and stayed on it for a few years. Recently, I switched to Concerta 90mg because my tolerance was getting too high and it...

couragethebravedog,

Once I became an adult I only take the meds on the days I work. I’ve never had any trouble with headaches or anything when I come off. I’ve been on every ADHD med available throughout the years all at the highest dosage they can give me.

couragethebravedog,

Finally. I’ve been more active over on .ml because of this. Glad you guys are reasonable and reversed the decision.

couragethebravedog,

Nostr is the easiest to use decentralized Twitter alternative I’ve came across.

couragethebravedog,

Damn, when?

couragethebravedog,

You can compile infinity with your own API key and it will still function.

couragethebravedog,

Same. I left for a while but there’s not enough content here in the places I visit. I’ll leave once enough gets here though.

Whatsapp has begun working on support for third party chats (Telegram/Signal) (wabetainfo.com)

The European Union has recently reached an agreement on a significant competition reform known as the Digital Markets Act (DMA), which will impose strict rules on large tech companies that will have to offer users the ability to communicate with each other using different apps. WhatsApp is one of the companies that will be...

couragethebravedog,

I do not trust Whatsapp to provide the security of a signal conversation. Who wants signal and WhatsApp to talk to each other ?

couragethebravedog,

Out of curiosity, have you played BG3 ? It seems that most people who don’t like the game are coming to starfield right from BG3 and those who do have not played it. BG3 is now just the bar that AAA story telling is held to and anyone who has experienced it is having a hard time with the story of other games.

Is privacy possible with smart TV?

I’d like to start a discussion about TV privacy in 2023. I’ve never been interested in having a TV, but recently I was thinking of getting one. Looking into it, the privacy implications seem horrible. All the major brands seem to have cameras, microphones, and content recognition software. I can’t believe how dystopian it...

couragethebravedog,

Hisense TVs come with a physical microphone switch that disables the mic. Idk if this is on the budget end of TVs but I paid about 1500 for mine and it has it.

couragethebravedog,

I hate those types of games and I’ve still managed to sink 50 hours in bg3 and I’m not even done with the first act yet. It’s the new standard for AAA gaming.

YSK: you can setup pihole on any old rooted android (5.0+) device (lemmy.nz)

I just discovered this and it works fantastically on any old / unused android device you might have lying around, I was shocked at how easy it was, all the instructions are there, once you have it running all you need to do is set your router DNS settings to your pihole IP address and presto! Ads and trackers are gone!...

couragethebravedog,

I believe you can do Ethernet over USB c on some devices.

couragethebravedog,

They are doing away with that soon. Going to usernames.

couragethebravedog,

No user hosted video platform can succeed unless the hoster gets massive amounts of donations. The storage costs alone would be astronomical, but the real kicker would be the power bill. Transcoding to numerous people at different qualities requires tons of power.

couragethebravedog,

I use the N version of Windows and I never see any of this.

couragethebravedog,

It’s a lightweight version. It doesn’t have some of the pre installed stuff that comes on the normal Windows.

couragethebravedog,

I disagree. If you consider a power user using PowerShell or terminal, then sure. But simple things on windows are more complex on Linux. Like installing a program, if you can do it through snap or apt get then great, still more complex for the average user compared to windows where you just download and click.

couragethebravedog,

No it’s not, if it’s not on the store (outside of Ubuntu does a store even exist?) then it’s more difficult to install. Half the time it’s an appimage you have to download, make it executable and then run. Then if you install it from a website you have to go through the trouble of adding a shortcut into your application menu / desktop and it’s just way more complex than Windows.

couragethebravedog,

If you want to try Linux, try Ubuntu or mint. Those are the easiest to make an entry into.

couragethebravedog,

I run N, I like it.

couragethebravedog,

Got a number of invites for HD Space and myanonamouse if anyone wants to trade.
