EcoFlow’s $200 PowerStream is so clever, you might buy a $4,000 solar generator

    But also a bit of awkward silence, as a european who's grandparents, when I think about it retroactively, suspiciously often bashed jews as part of a casual conversation, and who's grandparents used to utter a german word here or there, despite not living anywhere near germany or austria, oh jesus christ, am I a nazi descendant? 😮

  • /e/OS Is Better Than Android. You Should Try It
  • Although using an up to date Android userspace is still less bad than stopping all the updates once the vendor jumps the ship.

    It's not going to stop a dedicated attacker, but having a somewhat secure webview that's not going tu crumble under the first piece of malicious javascript goes a long way towards the peace of mind.

  • Slovakia's prime minister injured in shooting
  • I wouldn't say he's a fascist. He only ever presents what the majority of the voters wants to hear.

    Every time the party needs a new demographic on board, he either changes the rethoric, or, if it's a taboo topic, allies himselves with people not afraid of breaking that taboo.

  • Nobody is going to upgrade the grid, if there is no prospect of increased demand.

    I've noticed that media tend to bitch equally about both surplus and shortage of certain commodities. Expensive power? Horrible! Cheap power? Catastrophe! That way the world seems even more depressing than it really is.

  • First human brain implant malfunctioned, Neuralink says

    cointelegraph.com Phoenix and Wasabi exit US market amid self-custody wallet crackdown

    Phoenix Wallet and Wasabi Wallet will cease services for U.S. customers due to concerns about increased regulatory crackdowns in the country.

    Phoenix and Wasabi exit US market amid self-custody wallet crackdown

    "Recent regulatory action against Consensys and Samourai has instilled fear among other crypto service providers operating in the United States."

    • Wasabi is the main competitor to Samourai's whirpool mixing service. The only one flying under the radar currently is Joinmarket.
    • Phoenix is the Lightning network wallet where users keep custody of their funds, but the channel management is outsourced to the company. The only remaining self custodial lightning wallet that remains is Breez.

    While this news is deeply troubling, it might push further development to more sustainable trustless self-custodial solutions in the long term.

    Who Are the Samaritans?

    The Solomon's temple in Jerusalem was a mistake... according to samaritan israelites, who follows 5 books of the old testament, and pray on Mt. Gerizim, 48km north of Jerusalem. THE place to worship God.

    Most of the european christians probably know the term only from the story about the good samaritan. Today I've learned not only they are still a thing, practicing their barebones version of judaism, but in addition to israel and the west bank, some of them even live and practice their religion in brazil.

    Zoroastrianism Explained

    The so called new religious movements are a guilty pleasure of mine. Some of their followers often claim to be inspired specifically by Zoroastrianism.

    But what is zoroastrianism? Apparently, it all started ~3000 years ago in the area currently known as iran, by the guy called Zarathustra. And although the number of active practitioners is rapidly declining, the ideas behind it affect us all to this day, as the christianity and islam seem to be highly inspired by the ideas behind zoroastrianism.

    Trezor Safe 3

    There's a new Trezor HW wallet available. It's a long awaited refresh of the original Trezor One. Two buttons, one screen, USB-C, and a new chip that makes it tick. Now with 100% more secure element!

    They also offer a new cold storage solution - https://trezor.io/trezor-keep-metal . The form factor is similar to cryptosteel, but the mechanism of entering the seed phrase is different. You punch a bunch of holes in the metal plates. Depending on what material is used, I'd say it's much more fool proof compared to cryptosteel. If an unsuspecting nocoiner opens it, there is no risk of them just spilling all the letters out and financially ruining the whole family in the process.

    Is there any consumer grade nvme ssd that works flawlessly on linux?

    I've tried Apacer AS2280Q4 2TB and ADATA SWORDFISH 500 GB. Both report nvme nvme0: globally duplicate IDs for nsid 1 since Linux 5.19, if I attach more than one.

    Only the first drive is seen by the system. Workaround so far has been to stay on 5.15, but that's not a viable long-term solution.

    This error has been known for quite some time, and has been fixed downstream for specific distros and ssd models. Is there any chance the manufacturers will start to assign unique ID's to each drive, or mainline implements usable a universal workaround?

    Managed to get SOMETHING out of NOAA 19, using dipole

    Everyone knows helix antenna is needed for capturing NOAA satellite images, due to circular polarization of the signal, right?

    As I was listening to ISS APRS repeater (with great success!), I noticed NOAA 19 would pass over me shortly. Since the dipole was already set up outside, I decided to give it a go.

    Software used:

    • GQRX to capture the audio
    • Gpredict to know when to start the recording, and to compensate for the doppler shift
    • noaa-apt to convert the audio file to an image

    Hardware used:

    • RTL-SDR.com branded USB dongle
    • 3 lousy USB extension cords
    • "Bunny ear" retractable dipole antenna that I got in a bundle with one of the SDRs

    Now, there is not much to see in the image, but I sure as hell can spot some clouds there, and that's much more than I actually expected!

    Can I use the same domain name for Lemmy and Mastodon?

    I'd like to self-host Lemmy or kbin and mastodon. I know I could use different subdomain for each, but I'd much rather keep it short. Something tells me, however, that other instances might not be happy about it.

    Is it doable?

    Shodan lifetime membership discount.

    Google is a search engine for human readable content. Shodan does the same for machine readable content.

    You can:

    • search for specific IP addresses, and it will show you the active ports, and running services.
    • search for a specific response header in the set of countries
    • browse through the screenshots of open VNC & RDP
    • open webcams
    • and more...

    The free accounts can use any feature, but the list of results is limited. But if you really want to look under the deck of the internet, the subscription is worth it.
