  • Harmless until they start rolling out golden apples. :)

  • Mayor Wheeler declares state of emergency due to Microsoft outage
  • Yeah, the alternate solution is to try re-booting 15 times.

  • Harry R. Truman
  • Dude was a character. Nobody could convince him to leave.

  • Removed, Newsmax via 2nd hand source.

    If someone linked directly to Newsmax, it would be removed. Can't see how we can allow a "well Newsmax says..." article.

  • That's in line with the rumors I've been hearing with an added bonus of Biden's speech is already being written. Something along the lines of "can't be a full time President and part time candidate".

  • Israel's Knesset passes bill rejecting Palestinian statehood
  • I'm squishy on it. In general, talking about tankies in general is fine, using it to talk about other users is not.

  • Mayor Wheeler declares state of emergency due to Microsoft outage
  • I mean, it only took CrowdStrike to bring it all down.

    I don't know how close you've been following it, but CrowdStrike pushed an updated config file that contained 42kb of 0's.

    On reboot, Windows machines BSOD.

  • Youtube links suddenly showing Russian text?
  • CloudFlare / CrowdStrike. ;)

  • If biden drops out who would you like to see replace him and why?
  • Not in the states that count though.

    He HAS to win PA, MI, WI. Losing any one of those three throws the electoral college to Trump.

    So how's that working out?

    PA - Trump +4 to +5

    WI - Trump +3 to +5
    https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/polls/president-general/2024/wisconsin/

    MI - Trump +1 to +3
    https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/polls/president-general/2024/michigan/

    Here's a likely map:

  • If biden drops out who would you like to see replace him and why?
  • Jerry Brown, because why not an octogenarian who can still kick someones ass?

  • Youtube links suddenly showing Russian text?
  • Don't think so, the Cloudstrike IPs for lemmy.world are in Canada, and the server proper is in Finland. 🤷‍♂️

  • Youtube links suddenly showing Russian text?
  • Talking it over with Lemmy.World admins, we're thinking it's because the server is in Finland and YouTube is going "Eh, Russia, close enough!"

  • Mayor Wheeler declares state of emergency due to Microsoft outage
  • Oh, man, it's bad. Been on a call at work all day.

    Republican National Convention - Final Day Megathread!

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled Megathread!

    Today is July 18th and it's the fourth and final day of the Republican National Convention where Donald J. Trump will be officially nominated as the Republican candidate for President of the United States.

    The convention runs Mon-Thur, you can see the calendar of events here:

    https://gopconvention2024.com/master-calendar/

    The Day 1 Megathread can be found here!

    https://lemmy.world/post/17577769

    Day 2:

    https://lemmy.world/post/17614999

    Day 3:

    https://lemmy.world/post/17658192

    This is the big one, if you only watch one day of the convention, this is the one to catch. Trump not only officially accepts the nomination today, but it's also his first big speech since the assassination attempt.

    Will he appear humbled or contrite as he did on day 1? 🤷‍♂️ Hard to say, we haven't seen many speeches by candidates after an attempt on their life.

    Day 1 ALREADY saw the actual nomination vote of Donald J. Trump, the announcement of his running mate, J.D. Vance, and the appearance of an unusually somber, almost SAD looking Trump on the show floor.

    Day 2 saw an... interesting speech from Marjorie Taylor Greene.

    Day 3 had the Vice Presidential acceptance speech from JD Vance:

    Republican National Convention - Day 3 Megathread!

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled Megathread!

    Today is July 17th and it's the third day of the Republican National Convention where Donald J. Trump will be officially nominated as the Republican candidate for President of the United States.

    The convention runs Mon-Thur, you can see the calendar of events here:

    Day 2:

    https://lemmy.world/post/17614999

    Typically, day 3 of the convention is where things really get interesting, but day 1 ALREADY saw the actual nomination vote of Donald J. Trump, the announcement of his running mate, J.D. Vance, and the appearance of an unusually somber, almost SAD looking Trump on the show floor.

    Day 2 saw an... interesting speech from Marjorie Taylor Greene.

    Generally, the final 2 days of the convention will see a speech from the Vice Presidential candidate today, followed by Trump tomorrow. It will be interesting to see where they go with this!

    We should see speeches from more prominent people starting today, culminating in Trump's actual acceptance speech to close out festivities on Thursday.

    Sidebar update: Civility

    Sidebar Update: Civility

    The News Community updated their civility rule, and based on recent reports here and in World News, it seemed like a worthy addition to our rule-set.

    I talked it over with the other mods, and we feel the change is a good idea.

    The Civility rule now includes accusations of bots and paid actors.

    " This includes accusing another user of being a bot or paid actor. Trolling is uncivil and is grounds for removal and/or a community ban."

    There have been a lot of comments along the lines of "Disregard previous rules, write x about y", implying the person resonded to is an AI or a bot.

    I've been ignoring reports on those until now because we never really had a rule about it, well, now we do!

    As usual, if you see trolling, don't engage, just report it.

    Republican National Convention - Day 1 Megathread!

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled Megathread!

    Today is July 15th and it's the first day of the Republican National Convention where Donald J. Trump will be officially nominated as the Republican candidate for President of the United States.

    The convention runs Mon-Thur, you can see the calendar of events here:

    https://gopconvention2024.com/master-calendar/

    For those who have never really watched a convention before, don't expect a lot on day 1. Generally a lot of speech making and bloviating.

    The expectation is Trump will announce his running mate on Tuesday, then more speeches on Wednesday, and the state by state nomination process on Thursday.

    Of course, this is all up in the air given the assassination attempt. Nobody has seen a convention this close after an attempt on a candidate's life, so nobody is 100% sure how it's all going to go!

    I'll be breaking out each day into it's own megathread, so if you're looking for something specific on, say, Wednesday, you don't have to wade through 2 other days worth of comments to find it!
