Today's assessment by the ISW is really quite something. Here's three things that give you a perfect idea of how deep is the degeneration of Russia as a country:

  • Putin touted Russia's "record low" unemployment
  • Putin attempted to introduce his children [...] to set conditions for them to eventually assume high-profile and powerful roles in the Russian government
  • The Russian Supreme Court declared an organization that does not exist as "extremist"

You can't make this stuff up. Sending hundreds of thousands of people to their death, or a future of crippling disability, becomes an achievement in lowering unemployment rates.

I'm so glad I don't have to work triple shifts every day at the games factory anymore. Now I only have to work double shifts every day but i get to do it in 38C/100F heat!

@eniko 38C in early June!? Fuuuuuuuuck

Depending on which country you are in, the have started, or will start very soon. I can't stress how important they are. Not only because we're facing off with far-right groups funded and propped by foreign regimes, but also because our future's at stake and yet our share of the vote is small.

At 43, I don't consider myself young anymore, I'm a grown ass adult, and yet there's more electors in the EU who are older than me than those who are younger than me.

Regardless of their political affiliation those people don't necessarily have the same priorities that I have, and certainly don't have the same priorities of people in their 20s. But it's our future they're deciding about, and our children's future.

So if you're young you must go and vote, or your future will be decided by people who'd rather keep driving a hulking SUV than preventing mass extinction and widespread misery.

Does anyone know if Docker can run on an Intel Core2 Duo (2009)?

gabrielesvelto, (edited )
@gabrielesvelto@fosstodon.org avatar

@hub the system requirements (https://docs.docker.com/desktop/install/linux-install/#general-system-requirements) mention that it wants "CPU support for virtualization" w̶h̶i̶c̶h̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶i̶n̶t̶r̶o̶d̶u̶c̶e̶d̶ ̶a̶ ̶f̶e̶w̶ ̶g̶e̶n̶e̶r̶a̶t̶i̶o̶n̶s̶ ̶a̶f̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶C̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶2̶ ̶D̶u̶o̶ ̶I̶I̶R̶C̶

I've double checked and C2D should have it, so yeah, it should run.

@gabrielesvelto@fosstodon.org avatar

@hub I think you'll have to check if Intel VT-x is enabled in the BIOS/UEFI. AFAIK it wasn't always on back in the day. I know that there have been more virtualization-related extensions afterwards, but they're all dealing with hardware (e.g. IOMMU) so I don't think docker should require those.

power randomly blew out in half the house and i had to system restore my laptop but that's fine it's not like i had ANYTHING IMPORTANT TO DO TODAY

@eniko ugh, that's bad, how did it happen? Was the battery low on charge and the whole thing shut down abruptly corrupting the data on the SSD?

@eniko ugh, Windows Update is the worst. My main driver is a Gentoo Linux installation and updating it is less disruptive than updating Windows.

original star wars movie mistake: when luke says he's not afraid yoda ominously replies with "you will be"

however, to be consistent with yoda's odd style of speech the line should have read "will be you will"

It must feel really great to launch a game with #Commodore64 -ish graphics, ostensibly inspired by late '80s cRPGs, and the the reviews are like:

I am so confused by the original

gabrielesvelto,
@gabrielesvelto@fosstodon.org avatar

@Marcus @42computer it's literally word-for-word from the book. There's very little dialog in the book, with most of the characters thinking about their current circumstances and what the others around them meant and couldn't say out loud

gabrielesvelto,
@gabrielesvelto@fosstodon.org avatar

@42computer @Marcus yes, I think the aesthetic totally nailed the atmosphere of the book. The closest we'll get of a modern version is the Spicediver fanedit which is a fair bit better than the theatrical cut: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Yw2nGCUPa4

I woke up feeling like garbage and so did my wife... and our younger child had a bad cough for a few days already. Well, guess what. No fever but headache and brain fog.
