Is my girlfriend gaslighting me? (Edit: No, she is not gaslighting me, but may have some other issues.)
  • She's not normally like this

    If there's no situational cause for this change in behavior, there's a chance she's experiencing paranoia from an undiagnosed mental health condition. Look up the signs of mania (bipolar disorder), borderline personality disorder, and schizophrenia. If it looks like it might be one of those then you need consult professionals and family because it's not something you're going to be able to help her with on your own with advice from Internet strangers.

    Take care of yourself, of she continues to behave abusively you need to get away whether this behavior comes from untreated illness or not.

  • Those without A/C, what are your tips to stay cool during the summer?
  • It will make the air behind your fridge warmer in exchange for making the air around your body cooler. There's usually not great airflow behind the fridge so it won't affect the rest of your house much.

    If you've got an open kitchen or something you can still freeze the bottles at night and use them during the day.

  • This is what freedom is about
  • The prescription toothpaste they give you for tooth sensitivity really works but make sure you like the flavor you pick because you need to skip rinsing after you brush to for it to have time to sink in.

    Totally worth it to be able to bite into whatever food you want without waiting for it to come to near room temperature.

  • Ah yes, organization.
  • I don't like the look of it either, when it gets too bad I'll usually go through and close a bunch but I can't for the life of me manage to close them when I'm finished with them for the time being.

  • Ah yes, organization.
  • I have three categories of tabs:

    • web apps I want to keep open all the time for notifications that I don't want to install (Discord, calendar, email)
    • tabs I'm currently switching back and forth between or plan to soon
    • tabs from the second category that I forgot to close or left open because I never got around to the task I planned to use them for

    The last one is the largest by several orders of magnitude.

  • Study finds 268% higher failure rates for Agile software projects
  • There aren't any meetings that are part of Agile. The point of Agile is that you're supposed to let teams self-organize and define their own process through iteration but managers hate that so they issue a top-down mandate to implement the Scrum process without allowing anyone outside of management to change it in any way and call it "Agile".

  • Samuel Alito’s wife claimed upside-down flag was ‘international sign of distress’
  • It's naval tradition, if your ship is being hijacked by pirates or enemy forces, raising the flag upside down is a way to signal passing ships without alerting the hijackers.

    The thing is, that's why the Jan 6 insurrectionists were using it as a symbol in the first place. Trump convinced them election was rigged so the upside down flag was used to signal that they believed the country was being hijacked.

  • Scarlett Johansson denied OpenAI the right to use her voice. They used it anyway.
  • Disagree, without IP laws whoever has the most money can crush all competition. An example of this is how the first pump hand soap softsoap couldn't patent the hand pump design because it already existed so they just bought all the existing stock to prevent anyone from releasing a competing product.

    If you get rid of IP laws you'll just further entrench the existing winners.

    Write a good book? Without copyright, Penguin random house publishes an exact copy at a higher quality and sells a million copies while you sell a handful to discerning fans.

    Build a quality product? Without trademark, proctor and gamble flood the market using your brand name and nobody can distinguish their products from yours even though their quality is much worse.

    Invent something revolutionary? Without patents you have to keep your process a secret so you don't get copied. If you get hit by a bus your invention is now lost to society forever unless someone manages to reverse-engineee it.

    I love overnight ferments but it's so hard to keep them from overproofing in the summer

    They're still tasty but the boules are too short to make decent sandwiches with.

    I used less starter, more salt, and a shorter proof time than the recipe called for but they still collapsed. I think I need to cut the amount of starter more aggressively.

    400 error when trying to upload images

    Whenever I try to post an image this morning, the upload fails no matter what browser/client/frontend I use with:

    Request error: error sending request for url (http://pictrs:8080/image): operation timed out

    Also this shows a popup with SyntaxError: Unexpected token 'R', "Request er"... is not valid JSON but I assume that's a bug with the lemmy frontend since voyager shows the correct error.
