YSK: is managed by tankies, and lead lemmy developer is a tankie
  • i've been on the receiving end of his cunty-ness in person as a lowley tech support minion that he was forced to work with, as well as several other well known pioneers; i can tell through this thread that dessalines is an angel by comparison and i've never met them.

  • Electric Cars Are Suddenly Becoming Affordable
  • you should watch the video reviews on those cars; they blow american cars out of the water and it makes sense why our automakers would do everything in their power to prevent us from getting access to them.

  • Employees Who Stay In Companies Longer Than Two Years Get Paid 50% Less
  • Every single time I see this type of conversation come up it’s always about the more privileged higher paying white collar work.

    this is true and i know i because i'm one of those workers while my siblings aren't and only my pay increases significantly each time while theirs remain stagnant.

    on the other hand recruiters hate "job hoppers" and you'll end up with more gate keepers to jobs the more often you do it; while my siblings barely get any questions when they have to switch jobs.

  • Employees Who Stay In Companies Longer Than Two Years Get Paid 50% Less
  • my work experience is almost entirely 2 & 3 year tenures and (anecdotally) companies are making vesting a bigger part of the compensation package and getting rid of pto to counteract people's attempts at improving their livelihoods.

    if you see a vesting heavy or "unlimited pto" compensation packages on offer; they don't expect to keep you for very long.

  • Employees Who Stay In Companies Longer Than Two Years Get Paid 50% Less
  • moving every 2 years or so is clearly the best strategy for career advancement.

    it's a double edged sword in my experience from to talking to recruiters who seem to have an irrational hatred of "job hoppers" and they're, anecdotally, a majority.

    however it is still true that you'll get higher pay as i did; but be sure to spend a LOT of time keeping your connections alive because most recruiters (still anecdotally) will red flag 2 & 3 year tenure-ships; effectively gate keeping you away from many jobs.

    if it weren't for being in a relatively lucrative and in demand field (software development); i would be screwed because of those recruiters.

  • A heat dome will send temperatures into the triple-digits across the West as fires burn
  • living in austin for 5 years taught that even the bluest texans are ardently pro-establishment.

    that doesn't mean that all of them are climate deniers; but like their red brethren, they'll fall in line and vote for a climate change denier if it means their guy gets to win.

    like most of the country, they hate their choices but will fight you tooth and nail if you try to change anything for the better; don't bother with benefit of the doubt when it comes to texans.

  • Electric Cars Are Suddenly Becoming Affordable
  • they're selling out so fast that australia hasn't gotten many yet.

    interestingly australia might be the only western country to get them since they have a free trade agreement with china while the united states and europe are putting extremely hefty tariffs on them to protect their own respective automotive industries.

  • Yup
  • i forgot strapons existed and i think that would enable a greater variety of double/triple/whatever penetration videos than gay porn currently does.

    based on the strapon usage i've seen: i suspect people who use strapons derive more psychological pleasure than physical pleasure and if that would have an impact on the quality of the porn.

  • Electric Cars Are Suddenly Becoming Affordable
  • You’re not wrong, but in fairness the headline says EVs are becoming affordable, not that they are affordable.

    he's right; brand new ev's go for about $10k outside the unites states; they're already affordable but big tariffs are being employed to discourage buying them.

    curiously, even the 100% american tariff still makes these ev's more affordable than anything in that article and i'm wondering what's going to happen once they start building them in mexico (ie nafta).

  • Biden: What's happening in Gaza is not genocide

    US President Joe Biden strongly defended Israel on Monday, saying Israeli forces are not committing genocide in their military campaign against Hamas militants in Gaza.

    Biden: What's happening in Gaza is not genocide

    "What's happening in Gaza is not genocide. We reject that," Biden said at a Jewish American Heritage Month event at the White House.

    I can't tell if he's pandering or trying to lose the election


    advice on changing ids

    i've created my own wifi router & firewall using pci passthrough for the network card to a kvm/libvirt/qemu virtual machine running pfsense hosted on an ubuntu server and it works well enough; but the pci id changes roughly every other reboot.

    i was thinking of adding another hack in the form of a bash script to launch the vm and then modify the virtual machine's xml if there's a problem and then attempt another relaunch; but this entire exercise has taught me the hard way that hack-on-top-of-hack-on-top-of-hack is impossible to remember and there will come a point where something will break and i'll spend a couple of days relearning how to build my own router again.

    any advice on how to make it all more mindless and/or graceful?
