The Nature of Nature
  • Nature also made our kickass brains which we use to create these amazing things.

    Those same idiots drive home in a car to an air conditioned home. What’s “natural” about any of that?

  • Poll shows 84% of PC users unwilling to pay extra for AI-enhanced hardware
  • My old ass GTX 1060 runs some of the open source language models. I imagine the more recent cards would handle them easily.

    What’s the “AI” hardware supposed to do that any gamer with recent hardware can’t?

  • Donald Trump Suggests ‘Second Amendment People’ Could Act Against Hillary Clinton (August 2016)
  • I remember you from the other thread. You’re a fan of feigning ignorance if it helps your point.

    Read this thread. The people encouraging violence are upvoted far more and those discouraging it are downvoted.

    It’s not just that thread either.

    To continue a theme from our previous thread - you mind if we quit playing stupid?

  • Could use some recommendations for a (usually) quick typist.

    At home I have a Das Keyboard with Cherry MX browns and they feel great. I think this is the quickest I've been able to type on any keyboard.

    I type a lot for my new job and no one cares if I bring in my own keyboard but for my coworkers sake, I don't think I want to bring in browns. I'm a heavy typer and frankly I'm loud on browns.

    I searched for quieter keys and found Cherry MX Red Silents (Durgod keyboard) but after typing on it a few days at work, I'm making way more mistakes, I'm typing slower, and my hands are more fatigued. That's when I learned about linear vs tactile... I think tactile is what I need.

    So with that, I'm looking for:

    Need:

    • Tactile
    • Light switches (should not take much force to activate? idk. Browns are good for me, for reference)
    • Quiet
    • 100% layout

    Want:

    • Switches I can put the Draula keycaps on that my friend bought me. I just know they fit fine on Cherry MX Browns and Red Silent.
    • USB-C port. I have a coiled cable I want to use already.

    Nice to have:

    • Hot swappable PCB

    Open to other info I'm not thinking about.

    Edit: After looking around some more this evening, I'm leaning toward grabbing a Keychron K10 Pro, grabbing some Zilents V2's and sticking those in there, then popping on the caps I have. This would be the most building I've done for a keyboard. See any issues with that?

    Update

    Based on the recommendations here and some other threads I read, I went with a Keychron Q6 Max and the Zilent V2's.

    I confirmed that my poor speed and accuracy on the (previous) new board I had gotten was definitely due to my not being used to linears. After a day of using the new Keychron with Zilents I did a typing test and got a new PB.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! Now I'm in trouble because I want to replace my home keyboard with the same...

    A newbie helping newbies - Launch Firefox profile from shortcut.

    I recently switched from Windows 10 to ZorrinOS (after a quick detour to NixOS... OOF) and in the course of setting things up how I like, I ran across some interesting stuff relating to flatpaks and shortcuts. I wanted to get this written to provide a resource for other people who might be switching.

    This is a guide to making a shortcut to launch a particular Firefox profile, on a Ubuntu based distro, while running Firefox as a flatpak. This is just how I did it, put the files where you want.

    1. Make a directory to hold the launch script and a shortcut icon. My script:

    #!/bin/sh flatpak run org.mozilla.firefox -p youtube

    Obviously, make it executable.

    Because Firefox is running as a flatpak we can't just launch it using firefox. They're actually stored in /var/lib/flatpak/app and can be launched like this.

    https://opensource.com/article/21/5/launch-flatpaks-linux-terminal

    1. Create a text file in the Desktop directory with a .desktop extension like this:

    [Desktop Entry] Name=YouTube Comment= Launches Firefox Youtube profile Exec=/home/user/Documents/firefox-youtube/firefox-youtube.sh Icon=/home/user/Documents/firefox-youtube/youtube-app-icon.png Terminal=false Type=Application

    https://www.baeldung.com/linux/desktop-entry-files

    1. Once saved, make it executable. Right click > "Allow Launching". Done.

    Just for fun, this is the image I like for it.

    Index Funds Have Officially Won

    I honestly thought this happened a while ago...

    Reno 911! episode where they stop chasing a (naked?) man as soon as he crosses out of their jurisdiction.

    I seem to remember this was a Reno 911! episode but my YouTube searching hasn't been able to find the episode/clip.

    I think they were chasing a naked man but none of the cops wanted to touch him for obvious reasons. They made a half-hearted attempt to cuff/capture him but as soon as he crossed out of their jurisdiction (county line or something) they throw their hands up because that's not their job anymore.

    Unable to post especially long guide

    I want to move one of my more important guides to Lemmy (lemmy.ml/datahoarder) but when I paste the guide in and click Create, the "Create" button just spins endlessly.

    Did I hit some character limit? It's 13,944 char and 204 lines.
