Was it a good thing that SNW explicitly said the Federation is socialist?
  • I think so, the federation is often seen and portrayed as close as you can get to a utopia (Since it's practically impossible to achieve a "true" utopia). They still have issues, make mistakes and wrong calls, and even some (albeit greatly reduced) crime.

    So having more positive association/references for the term socialist, a term that most general people can have a connection with, cant hurt.

  • GenAI more buzz than biz as tech barely dents jobs
  • Exactly, they're tools like any other and like any other tool it's not going to do the whole job for you and you're going to need to learn how to use it well to get the most out of it

    It's neither magic, like the AI/tech bros would like you to think nor is it the harbinger of doom and some evil thing that need to be squashed like the anti-AI bros want you to think

  • xkcd #2948: Electric vs Gas
  • all the electric motorcycles are like 100 lbs more and go through tires like once a year

    compared to my gas powered motorcycle changing tires twice a year, you're changing tires less on an electric motorcycle? I don't see the issue

  • CDK Global cyberattack shuts down most auto dealership systems nationwide
  • Dealerships are kinda like Movie theaters, artificially propped up. Except worse because they lobby for actual laws preventing you from doing easy convenient things, like just buying a car online. So yea, fuck dealerships

  • 2nd-largest school district, Los Angeles Unified School District, votes to ban cellphone and social media for students starting in 2025
  • turned it on and off for specific areas of the building as needed'

    Sounds like illegal jamming to me, def collect some evidence if you can and please report them. I bet they have them mounted on/near the ceiling. Maybe a phone with a good zoom could capture some good evidence pics

  • 2nd-largest school district, Los Angeles Unified School District, votes to ban cellphone and social media for students starting in 2025
  • Yea, no. The FCC is quite explicit on this, read for yourself:

    The use of a phone jammer, GPS blocker, or other signal jamming device designed to intentionally block, jam, or interfere with authorized radio communications is a violation of federal law. There are no exemptions for use within a business, classroom, residence, or vehicle. Local law enforcement agencies do not have independent authority to use jamming equipment; in certain limited exceptions use by Federal law enforcement agencies is authorized in accordance with applicable statutes.

  • How many people actually want fully on-site IT jobs?
  • There's also a huge value to people working in the same space.

    Random conversations solve a lot of problems.

    If only we had decent VR headsets that were comfortable to wear all day I wouldn't mind replicating that in a "virtual office"

    Unfortunately, even Apple wasn't able to solve the comfortability problem.

  • Is this tree healthy?

    The tree is an adjoining neighbors backyard with large branches that come pretty close to my house (Though there is a sizable gap, if it comes down under the wrong wind direction...) and are actually touching another neighbors roof.

    If it is unhealthy, is it recoverable? I'd rather not have them cut the whole thing down (it provides a lot of shade for my backyard (well, when it's healthy that is lmao)) Should I talk with them directly (I don't really know them, at all) or let the city know?

    Looking for some advice on moving 100TBs of data from the cloud to tape

    With Google Workspace cracking down on storage (Been using them for unlimited storage for years now) I was lucky to get a limit of 300TBs, but now I have to actually watch what gets stored lol

    A good portion is uh "Linux ISOs", but the rest is very seldom (In many cases last access was years ago) accessed files that I think would be perfect for tape archival. Things like byte-to-byte drive images and old backups. I figure these would be a good candidate for tape and estimate this portion would be about 100TBs or more

    But I've never done tape before, so I'm looking for some purchasing advice and such. I seen from some of my research that I should target picking up an LTO8 drive as it's compatible with LTO9 for when they come down in price.

    And then it spiraled from there with discussions on library tape drives that are cheaper but need modifications and all sorts of things


    Anybody got a good system for blocking religious artists on Spotify?

    I like to let Spotify leave my playlist and just have it play whatever so I can add new songs to my playlist.

    But from time to time it'll play songs from some religious band (Usually Christian rock or Christian rap or something). The annoying part is it'll sound pretty good, until I start paying attention to the lyrics and then I realize it's a propaganda song lol and have to block the artist and move on.

    Anybody know of a good list of religious artists on Spotify so I can write a script to block them ahead of time? (Or even better an existing FOSS project to do just that lol)

    NVR software recommendations that supports SSO/LDAP

    Hi everyone, looking for some NVR software to run a bunch of Cisco 6630 cameras I picked up (I know I know, but at <20$/camera....)

    I looked at a few like ZoneMinder and Frigate but they all seem to only support basic HTTP auth and I spent a lot of time and effort getting Authentik working nice and smooth and dammit I want to use it for everything I can lol

    Just "classic" LDAP is fine too, at least it's still using some part of my central authentication infra lmao
