yeah, I use zim-wiki.org for this, but you can also just use a physical journal or any other note taking tools.

I would love to shop on Sundays. Just because there’s official business days doesn’t mean 5/7 days need to be the same for every business. In my city, many restaurants close shop on Tuesday and they are open on Saturdays and Sundays.

A friend of mine has a 7 day work week with 3 days off, so he can choose whenever. That’s the best model, IMHO. He has two fixed days (he chose Friday and Saturday) and the other one is “floating”.

However, he still has 35 hours to work, so realistically he usually still works 5 days most of the time.

Various organisations and clubs furthering scientific development and education.

I found that most of world’s problems are either caused by greed, poverty or a lack of education. Since you can’t end greed or poverty by just pouring money on those issues, I instead donate to institutions providing free learning materials, open source software and other causes indirectly bettering the world by empowering the underprivileged.

I also spend money on the Free software I use. I contributed to a repository listing donation options and I’d be happy if others would also contribute: https://github.com/n1trux/awesome-donations

You can install Teams with flatpak. The only things not working are giving or taking control of the computer (so, KVMoIP) and screen sharing with Wayland.

If you can get down, you can always get up. Life always continues until it ends. If it’s not the end, it’s not the end.

Sounds like a boomer’s postcard version of #yolo doesn’t it 😃

Look at old humble bundle statistics. Linux users usually paid more than mac and windows users.

I run tilde.fun but I’m a lazy admin and people wait months to get an account 😅

Hello. I am Birdperson.

Plants save our planet while humans are animals and destroy it. Therefore, they are superior to animals. Q.e.d.

I agree with sanctions against states and companies but sanctions against Open Source Software if it’s not malicious are very weird.

ah, then we have a pretty similar definition :)

few years go it’d parp out like that on a regular basis.

yes, actually the availability of big sites is pretty impressive if you look at it from a technical standpoint, especially for those huge (legacy) code bases. You saw that when Twitter got its SREs and developers removed, it took only a week to start crumbling and having weird outages and bugs.

Oh so they only have 99.9% availability instead of 99.95%? That’s surely better than the hobbyists running the Fediverse.

I like to shit on huge sites like Reddit, Twitter, Facebook etc. all day long but their SREs are usually doing a very good job on keeping the site running. 100% uptime is nearly unachievable, at my job (as an SRE!) 99.5% is actually the benchmark, depending on the metric.

My list:

  • No Man’s Sky – exploring the universe
  • Parkitect, OpenRCT – building a theme park
  • Satisfactory – building a factory, exploiting a planet with Diesel trucks without destroying the real life one

What defines a sandbox for you?-

Basically, every time a video title or an article asks a question, you can just answer ‘no’ without having watched or read it nowadays. It’s usually clickbait.

why can’t they just include an RJ45 port 😓

I want it to have MS Teams integration, I’d even pay 😩

Der Leitartikel beschäftigt sich mit Windows Update, der Kommentar mit Facebook. Ich sehe die Verbindung immer noch nicht und es verwirrt mich, dass das nicht separat diskutiert wird.

Facebook läuft nicht auf Windows und die Abhängigkeit zu Windows ist eine ganz andere als die Abhängigkeit zur Kommunikation auf Facebook.

Glaube nicht, dass das hier ein Fach-Forum nur für professionelle Administratoren sein soll - oder?

Nein, aber es gibt auch noch !netzpolitik@feddit.de, dort hätte es IMHO besser gepasst. Es sei dir gestattet, das hier zu lassen ;)

And they continue to wonder why everyone buys from the abysmal Amazon.

My point of view of this matter is that it is mainly a lack of skills and bad culture.


I’d rather use the word “harm” than “damage”, since “damage” removes the perpetrator from the equation. However, fewer words are not optimal in that case. I’m glad you clarified all that :)

Simply put, emitting particles in the atmosphere without having scientific consensus that this is a good thing, could be a bad thing.

Then you should also define what sexual abuse means to you. Because someone using their power dynamic to coerce a minor into sex isn’t sexual abuse to some people, while it is to me, for example.

Having sex without physical damage doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to have sex. How would you measure the end of puberty and would you say there’s an age limit where you’d consider someone not being able to give consent? What about a 13yo boy who went through puberty early being seduced and coerced by a 30yo teacher? Would that be okay in your opinion? Why or why not?

So you don’t see an issue with rape and taking advantage of teenagers after puberty, just before?

You should really work on your wording if you didn’t mean that. It’s hard to backpedal when you use language where it’s possible to interpret it that way.

How is it baseless and incorrect? Without puberty, humans would never become able to sexually reproduce safely and also develop into adults.

There’s more kinds of damage than physical damage. Your wording is awful.

Indem wir sie einfach mit mehr Personal als mit mehr Befugnissen ausstatten. Das Problem ist doch, dass 90% der Polizisten nicht mit den Anzeigen hinterher kommen, bevor die Täter über alle Berge sind. Der Wunsch nach mehr Befugnissen ist nur das Bedürfnis, den eigenen Job weniger schmerzhaft zu machen. Man verspricht sich Effizienz. Aber leider kann man Polizei nicht wegautomatisieren.

What happens when you use Ubuntu with the same Kernel and Mesa versions? Trisquel is based on Ubuntu, but Free, right? Then the same Kernel and Mesa should confirm that:

I don’t think this is a libre kernel issue though as when I do a web search on this error message several people who use various graphics cards and distros have had this in the past.

Don’t suspect, always confirm ;)

PSA: if you switched from Pulseaudio to Pipewire (or started to use Pipewire), change the resample quality to reduce audio distortion (e.g. crackling, hissing)
Why do they even include settings by default which introduce crackling and hissing noises? I found that even starting with `resample.quality = 7` I couldn't hear any difference, younger people (like teenagers) might be able to distinguish 8-9. Maybe use 8 as a default value?

PSA: LinkedIn just leaked my birthday (and it could leak yours)
Even though I set the visibility of my birthday to "Only you", people were messaged on my birthday that it occurred. ![screenshot of birthday setting](https://feddit.de/pictrs/image/e674a522-9851-40f2-900a-899599bf8b94.png) Keep in mind that even though [LinkedIn states that other people are not messaged when you set this to a private setting](https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/a550097?lang=en), they still are. Obviously another capitalist industrial shenanigan from one of our favourite data krakens, Microsoft.

> Das Synchronisieren der Schlüssel über Gerätegrenzen hinweg wird explizit gefördert. Dabei verlässt FIDO sich auf die Sicherheitskonzepte der zugrundeliegenden Betriebssysteme etwa von Google, Apple oder Microsoft, die ja schon heute teilweise Passwörter über die Cloud synchronisieren. In einem Kontext mit hohen Sicherheitsanforderungen kann etwa ein Dienstanbieter jedoch nach wie vor die Nutzung einzigartiger, gerätespezifischer FIDO-Schlüssel erzwingen.
