Its really missing a hoagie launcher to disperse crowds of hobos, and would pair well with the hot-sauce dispenser.

I have double the swap than physical memory in a swap partition. In not concerned about wearing it out, and I like having plenty of space for hibernation ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Feel free to post in the “linux” community, for FOSS stuff, and I just made the “tech support” community for everything else.

A open-source privacy focused OS from google?

Cant wait for the proprietary modules!

exactly, they spent time and money doing this instead of investing in infrastructure 🤦‍♂️

PSA: blocking users prevents you from moderating content from those users. You would also have to ban them from any sub you moderate to mitigate this issue

I’m not a shill, and I see the value of a cargo-bike. You should watch the video if you havn’t. is being sued for lending books!

I can also pretty much guarantee there was a transfer of money involved


The lawsuit filed Sunday in federal court in Texas, where Musk’s electric car firm is headquartered after moving from Palo Alto late last year, alleges the terminations violated federal WARN Act requirements that workers receive 60 days’ written notice before being let go in a mass layoff. Also, because the workers allegedly received no such notice, they are also owed 60 days’ pay by Tesla, the suit claimed.

No adds or upgrade nags with FOSS

With the help of LD_PRELOAD, Symbiote will load before any other shared objects. That allows the malware to tamper with other library files loaded for an application. The image below shows a summary of all of the malware’s evasion techniques.

Its likely a known issue with nginx + docker.
When a docker container crashes it gets a new IP address, but nginx has cached the upstream hostname resolution as the old IP, so it thinks the upstream is gone.

Or it could be a million other issues, that’s just one that I run into a lot. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yes, it doesn’t have any method for distributed global consensus. Instead, everyone gets to decide what they think the “tip” should be. Signed commits can give you insight into what others think it should be, though.

If I fork bitcoin and and replace proof-of-work with signed blocks, I would argue that its still a blockchain, just not decentralized. This would still be useful because others could see if I tried to re-write history.

I think of a blockchain, simply as a chain of blocks where each block contains a hash of its contents + the previous blocks hash. So, their primary feature is being an append-only tamper-evident database.

Git essentially uses a “blockchain” to store commits =/

this instance may not be, but the fediverse is. that’s kinda the whole point.

Any sufficiently large group will contain a similar percentage of assholes as the general population (which is high).

This is basically “regression to the mean” / “law of large numbers” and its why I think its best not to identify with any group

TBF CAP banned me for talking about a crypto project I had some adjacency too lol

r/linux is probably in a better place now

EDIT: and ! apparently

iCloud Private Relay is designed to protect your privacy by ensuring that when you browse the web in Safari, no single party—not even Apple—can see both who you are and what sites you’re visiting.

Also, China’s government is best described as fascism.

A decade ago, when my moms laptop stopped working, I installed Fedora on it and set everything up for her, and she loved using it for years until my dad got her a mac 🙄

Now her mac is deprecated and I’m sure that fedora laptop still works just fine lol

The year of desktop linux Peertube supremacy will be coming soon!
