  • Windows: exists

    Windows: open belly, right here!

    Crowdstrike: stabs

    Crowdstrike released bad code into prod without giving it some hours of testing in local machines or whatever. Incredible fuckup, inimaginable. But, let's not take blame out of Microsoft, if a driver is faulty the system should be resilient enough no to crap the bed on login. At least enough for IT to be able to remotely access the system and fix it. The manual work the IT world has had to do because it's lost remote access to workstations is insane.

  • Geometry
  • You just reminded me of having to prove that math signs work and do what they do from basic axioms to integers and rational numbers using logical proofs... Damn that was interesting but SO tedious...

  • Greedy Publishers Have Won And Normalized Paying To Play Early
  • Maybe this article doesn't mean thing like ffxiv, but ffxiv did something similar. In essence if you bought it before it early released, you got to play it those 3 days early. If you wanted to play it that time you could have just bought it and if you didn't you just bought it 3 days later and played it anyway.

    I think that for an online game that's a great idea, specially ffxiv, because the people that are going to play the new expansion probably bought it weeks prior to the early access and people who didn't probably haven't still finished the last expansion, so they really have no real incentive to play the new one like NOW, all they do is tax the servers for all the people that actually want to play the new content.

    It's also a way to limit the user base into two peaks so that the servers don't die too much.

    I'm completely against charging extra for the early access though. Early access maybe good, paying for it obviously bad.

  • JD Vance pick adds to European fears over Trump presidency
  • I don't think they are worried about the next US presidency though? That's the context of this comment chain. They are being fucked by the US regardless of the president that gets elected. All the other comments were about people that will be affected by it in a medium to major way.

  • Bad news: Playstation is starting to block their games from running on Proton. Playstation Overlay is blocked on Linux in Ghost of Tsushima. The same thing happened with the Concord beta.
  • Without root/admin access, on windows programs can't write in several important folders. By root user they meant program files, system 32 and all those "system files", which, surprise, are root files.

    A hacked kernel level program can modify system files and set up a keylogger that doesn't even register on the program monitor, and it can send your information and you wouldn't even notice it without monitoring your outbound packets, so you won't.

    Any other program would ask you admin/root access and if that's weird behaviour you can deny it and investigate, kernel level programs have it by default so if they have an exploitable vulnerability, you are fucked by default. It's a huge difference and the fact that you are not acknowledging it makes me feel like you really don't understand how code works.

    Also, don't put riot and valve in the same bag. PLEASE.

  • I don't think YOU understand how code works. Having a program that you can't verify being run as the highest priority level in your system is a stupid idea. You don't know how secure it is or if it has vulnerabilities because again, it's not open source. They are not even security experts, they are a game development company (which will hire security experts, sure, but the main focus not being security is important) and riot is not know for having a super robust game.

    Do you really trust them to release a program that can't be hacked into, which then would give the hacker a way to elevate privileges into the highest security level? Even if you trust them not to harvest and sell private data, you have to also trust them to make an unhackable program.

  • Mirarr, a piracy first movie app.
  • Just what the other guy told you. I get that it's a good idea, so good that it has already been done. Streamio+torrentio is the same concept and once set up (takes 5 minutes MAX), it works the same way. I still prefer a full servarr setup though.

    (low key shame on this product for having the *arr suffix while being a replacement of the servarr stack)

  • Bill Gates-backed startup makes ‘butter’ out of water and carbon dioxide
  • So is any meat, mayonnaise, even butter is processed. Ever went into a fast food chain? Most ingredients are processed to the bits.

    You better not take any medicine, that super processed? And Coca cola or any energy drinks? Bleh, made in labs!

    I guess you only eat whole grains collected by you, that must suck.

  • Bill Gates-backed startup makes ‘butter’ out of water and carbon dioxide
  • There are some decent replacements, I was amazed by the vegan foie from hello plan foods. Almost all the taste without the horrible feeling of guilt.

    For foie specifically, it's worth to try to find alternatives due to the creation process of the original being so bad that it's basically banned outside of Spain and France.

  • Bill Gates-backed startup makes ‘butter’ out of water and carbon dioxide
  • Yeah, being from the northern part of Spain I have tasted plenty French butters, I still prefer margarine. Taste is subjective so it's better not to have prejudices about food since those prejudices might be from someone with different taste buds.

  • Simple fix on KDE wayland for windows to remember their last position

    Thanks to /u/[email protected] for mentioning KDE window rules. In KDE, we can add rules for windows so that they behave in specific ways. One rule that can be added is the position: remember rule, and it's possible to make that rule apply to all windows by removing the match field. This way, closing and reopening windows keeps them where they were.

    This is a very typical complaint about wayland that a lot of people have, something that apparently worked natively with X11 and annoyed me to no end since I had to position all the windows every day when logging into my desktop. No more! I hope this helps :)
