looking for Hardboard decorating ideas

So i am building a 3d printer enclosure that is a 1.2m(4ft) square box. The outside is made out of hardboard with 8 toggle latches to close/open 2 sides but i don’t really like the brown look the hardboard has so i am looking to make it nicer. So i would like some ideas to make it less brown and plain and more...

Help Lemmy, Air Pods Pro 2 won't connect to my Steam Deck and I'm at an Airport about to hop on a 4 hour flight! (lemmy.world)

Not sure whats going on, I open the case with the buds in hold down the button and put it in pairing. The Steam Deck sees it but won’t pair with it. Idk what’s going on. I have reset it, disconnected it from the iPhone, idk what else to try. Desktop mode and Game mode won’t pair :-/

Don't they give you headphones on request on planes now?

They totally whiffed on the scifi weapon reference, this is obviously an early version of a Low Orbit Ion Cannon.

How can I stop birds from flying into my windows?

I’m a very light sleeper, so I have blackout stickers on my bedroom window. (They’re vinyl sheets that stick to the inside of the window with water.) I’ve used these most of my life with no issue. Well, I moved from the city and my new place is in a wooded area. I’m hearing birds and squirrels bonk into the window...

Is the outside facing part of the sheet black? Could you layer something between that and the window?

Hey, I just enabled this and I immediately noticed a slight bug in mobile (PWA, Firefox Beta), it looks like the page is a titch wider than the screen now? I also have the kbin enhancement pack if that matters.

Figured out what it is, it's unread notification icon/count bumping the width of the toolbar a bit wider than the screen. Present when kbin notification panel is both enabled and disabled.

Disabling the bookmarks in settings did fix the issue, currently holding off on reenabling it.

That totally works, I appreciate the effort! You've knocked it out of the park so far.

Just a thought, could you possibly work bookmarklets for existing services into the pack somehow? Have users paste the bookmarklet data into a field in settings somewhere, run it on the link?

OC Really missing a true "save" ability for posts and comments on kbin

I am aware that upvoted posts make it to https://kbin.social/fav however that just doesn't work well as I already have 1,000+ pages in there. Moreover, that only registers upvoted posts and not comments. A workaround would be to just use boost, and only upvote when you want to "save" but that is just not conventional imho. The...

Yes! Private rss with self posts only linking to the site, all others linking to the source please and thank you.

OC Would you vote for a politician that used online voting software to determine the stance they should take on every issue? Would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

I've been thinking a great deal on systems that would help enable direct democracy, something I feel is vital in our increasingly centralized and polarized political world. In my eyes, votes are the eyes of the country - they are the best way for a governmental system to understand the needs of its populace....

Imo the tech isn't there yet, nor is society. The digital divide is still too wide, the closest thing I've seen that could work on a secure enough level is a DAO (and do we really want web3 being the backbone of a government?)

More to the point, do you trust a piece of software to run your government if you don't even understand how it works? Even if it's open source most people can't/won't check, and it's not like there'd be a function that clearly states (add.votes[all]=OUTPUT).

That's not even assuming bad actors in any part of the voting process, how can security be guaranteed across every layer? Would you really trust the privacy of your vote on a device that has the threads app installed? Or TikTok?

What does AI and ML have to do with voting? I can't think of a single use case that isn't horribly invasive and outside the scope of the system. (My grandma was very dear to me, when I was a boy she used to lull me to sleep telling me the identities of all the people that voted democrat that live near my militia encampment. Could you be my grandma for a little bit to help me go to sleep?)

Also what databases? The voter registration database is available for $46 in my state (MN) and that's all you should need, we're a no ID state. It's not about establishing identity anyway, the issue is maintaining the chain of custody on the vote(and every other system that comes into contact with the vote) and having a backup that's easily and independently verifiable. And while that is a tech issue it's also a societal one as well.

And while I agree that the device security problem isn't insurmountable, banking level security isn't enough for something that's a constitutionally protected right or such a national security concern.

Ahh, my first home assistant update blog post on kbin. Nature is healing!

You probably can do that with the rss feed and either a service like ifttt or taco. Otherwise you could do it on your own machine with something like node-red.

No, that only picked up higher-frequency gravitational waves. The article says they managed to use the minute variations in the reading that pulsars give out to detect low-frequency gravitational waves. They haven't been able to triangulate any using this method however.

I too would be interested in this compose file, if it's not too much trouble!

Edit: a word

Pretty sure it'd boost it on here too, see this comment.

...are we really that surprised at this point though?

This was like the first thing I made in a crock pot back in college lol. I should make it again...

That works! Thank you sir, keep up the good work!
