  • Here's the seemingly original source for those who like to know.

  • Steam Is Run By Fewer Than 80 Staff, Lawsuit Docs Reveal
  • Yeah, that's most probably the case.

    Doesn't stop me from wanting to join though.

  • A pediatric doctor on a bike died
  • As a bicycle person, I'd love to rent the race track on off days or maintenance days.

    On the other hand, how am I going to reach the race track if there is no high speed road to there?
    Public transport? You mean those closed cabins where people go to spread their flu? No thank you.

    Well, road maintenance would become significantly cheaper if most of the traffic were bicycles instead of cars though, so that'd be a win. And 6 lane highways could be easily reduced to 4 lane ones, to have space for emergency vehicles and the occasional hauler, with the remaining lane kept for public transport and footpath construction.

  • Because that's how it works, right?
  • Guess the female bodyguards didn't learn enough from the anime, or maybe he was not the MC.

  • Eeeeee
  • My maths exam asked me to consider pi=5.

  • 'Not harmful to health': Korea's Buldak spicy noodles return to shelves as Denmark reverses recall
  • Yeah, they probably ate other spicier food along with the Buldak stuff, causing their excrement to have a higher amount of capsaicin, than was in the original product. Hence, the false advertising.

  • 'Not harmful to health': Korea's Buldak spicy noodles return to shelves as Denmark reverses recall
  • So they were given the go, because their false advertising was caught?

    Here's what I found

    Wonder if that's what you are referring to.

  • Steam Is Run By Fewer Than 80 Staff, Lawsuit Docs Reveal
  • That feels like free advertising to potential job-seekers.

    If just a few staff are running the whole thing, it means they are all probably the kind that do more actual work and less politics. That means, if anyone interested in learning fast and getting good at their field were to work there, they would have the time of their life.

  • That is a part-fully autonomous remote detonator.
    It stops being autonomous after the detonation, until it is recharged.

    The remote charge is fully contained within it and is able to remotely deploy and detonate the charge, given LOS and other conditions are favourable.

  • Basic rules
  • Very true.

    I had to try hard (not in terms of actual work, because that's not what makes others pay you) to get enough of a hike, that increasing milk prices would not make me unable to buy it.

  • Switzerland mandates all software developed for the government be open sourced
  • Whilst we’re at it, consider the impact of open data, where government datasets are available to the community.

    That sounds like it would be pretty useful to get better quality statistical research papers (well, I guess quality would depend more upon the researcher), doable by people without corporate backing.

    Isn't it already available in a lot of cases?

  • This week in KDE: autoscrolling
  • I used the libinput method for autoscrolling a lot, with X11. (Using the xinput setting) It stopped when I switched to Wayland.

    Never thought to make it a GUI setting. More fun now.

  • Are we going to do something for this year's Canvas?
  • So, how do I use this fediverse identity thing?

    Is it available with kde.social ?

    I tried it and don't see a notification either in my connected mail id or as a dm or sth.

    The TP is just for cleaning edges and corners that are hard to mop/broom/wipe.

    Or when I drop some egg innards.

  • "Selling a machine with proprietary software that links against an LGPLv3 library..." - post discussion

    I came across a stackexchange thread asking if system root access will be required to be given to the user.

    And the answer explaining the license and saying they needed to let the user be able to swap the libs on the system somehow.

    And because I just joined the community and can't comment there, here I am.

    I feel like, the seller doesn't really need to give root access to the user as long as they allow the user to copy said proprietary software on another system (and this act not be restricted by the license) and then do whatever they feel like, as long as the original system is immutated.

    Thoughts? ___

    Damnatory Arbitration

    > Image shows screenshot of XCOM2: War of The Chosen: Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Terms of Service, with an added Mandatory Arbitration clause in Section 15.

    Came back to the game after a year or so, just to see this:

    !Shows how to opt-out

    At least they let us disagree to the ToC. Not sure if I can play the game after that though, since I just exited after clicking the disagree button.

    Also, at least they show us the changes on the top, so we know what happened.

    Can Tokodon connect to Lemmy server?

    Would it make sense to consider asking Tokodon to support connecting with Lemmy servers, or is there too big a difference between the APIs, requiring a separate application?
