  • Given it is a CPU is limiting the parsing of the file, I wonder how a GPU-based editor like Zed would handle it.

    Been wanting to test out the editor ever since it was partially open sourced but I am too lazy to get around doing it

  • Does anyone use emacs as their main terminal emulator?
  • This is a problem that I face too. I have not yet figured out how to smoothly move over my terminal workflows to vterm (running ZSH in vi mode).

    I even made a post here asking for suggestions but I have not found a graceful solution to it yet.

    "PSN isn't supported in my country. What do I do?" Arrowhead CEO: "I don't know"
  • Yikes. I am yet to play the game but I knew Joel dies in the second one, as it almost felt like a setup for his death was built-in.

    However, I wasn’t aware of Sony going to such lengths to misdirect the game’s players.

    Thanks a lot for sharing the context.

    P.S. you might want to fix the formatting for the spoilers as it is currently not hidden.

  • Windows 7 with Aero Glass, in my opinion, was the last version of windows that actually felt warm and comfortable to use. 8, 10 and 11 all feel so cold, sterile and boring.
  • Interesting. I did use group by and sort by, but I guess I didn’t use the specific combination where it didn’t work as you mentioned.

    Also, I did not know Cortana was available for Windows 7. I am sure it wasn’t there when I was using it. Perhaps it got introduced after I moved away from the OS?

  • everyone praises Windows 7, despite it having features that were non-functional for its entire lifespan, which people either didn't notice, or didn't care that those things didn't work.

    Can you share a few examples of said features?

    Despite really wanting to use it, I skipped Vista when moving from XP to 7. I didn’t get to use 7 much as I switched to Linux shortly after.

  • HMD Pulse trio unveiled: affordable phones with 'Gen 1 repairability'

    > HMD is betting that consumers are moving to more environmentally-conscious products and are placing an emphasis on repairability. HMD says the Pulse range is built to “Gen 1 repairability” and that users can pick up self-repair kits from iFixit. Repairs include changing the battery, but also swapping the screen.

    Elon Musk is a pigeon CEO, 'he comes, sh*ts all over us, and goes', says former Tesla manager
  • Thanks for the list. While there are some that I read about previously, a few of the other patterns are something that I only experienced.

    It is nice to know that these have been identified and labelled by others in the industry. :D

  • They'd probably do it again these days.
  • That’s a really nice thinking exercise.

    Makes me wonder why the aliens didn’t come back to the planet after nuking it. Or have they already arrived?

    If they haven’t, why nuke a planet that one doesn’t plan to use?

  • Kind regards
  • First time I am seeing Conan O’Brien in a meme.

    The Hot Ones interview seems to have worked wonders for him and his show, regardless of which stills are taken from the interview. :D

  • To all evil-mode users, how do you work with vterm?
  • I never really tried using incremental search (avy or vim-easymotion) for minute navigation. I will certainly try this approach without evil-collection, along with the package you suggested.

    But I can already see it being slightly more time consuming as in my experience with vim-easymotion (and similar plugins like vim-sneak), the “jump” labels aren’t really generated in a logical manner such that I can effortlessly predict the label for the word I intend to bring the cursor/caret to. :-S

    How’s your experience with using this for minute navigations?

  • To all evil-mode users, how do you work with vterm?
  • I read the paper in its entirety. Thank you so much for sharing it.

    I really like the insight shared therein. Specifically on how much thought goes into keybindings, or rather must go into keybindings.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think EXPRES is widely supported as the authors hoped.

    As intuitive and similar to vim motions EXPRES may be, I don’t want to configure keybindings every time I install a plug-in/module.

    To all evil-mode users, how do you work with vterm?

    As a long time Vimmer, I have recently started using Emacs out of sheer curiosity. I chose Doom Emacs as it has evil-mode enabled by default, and do not want to dive down the rabbit hole of configuring the editor from scratch (at least, not yet!).

    After installing and enabling libvterm in Emacs, I am having a frustrating experience. I configured ZSH shell to use vi-mode keybindings which interferes with evil-mode whenever I press Esc or C-[.

    After having searched a little, I came across a workaround to disable evil-mode when in vterm. But it is still not a smooth experience. For instance, when switching between buffers (C-w C-w).

    I would like to know how others in the community tackled this problem. Is there a better solution to this problem? Or have you made peace with the aforementioned workaround? Or have you stopped using vterm entirely?

    Paper cuts that come with every new software update

    After using Apple’s products exclusively for close to a decade, I have seen a pattern emerge with their software updates where every new update introduces a set of trivial regressions in the UX.

    1. Swipe to seek a video in iOS’ native player has stopped working since I updated to iOS 17. In fact, this paper cut is what prompted me to write this post. I believe it didn’t work on iOS 15 either but worked flawlessly on iOS 16.
    2. Across all of iOS 16 versions installed on my phone, long-pressing an item on screen (links, app icons, files, etc.) to show the contact menu and selecting an entry in the menu without listing the finger didn’t work. It did until iOS 15 and it does now in iOS 17.
    3. Spotlight in iOS 14 (and back in iOS 10 or 11, I don’t remember well) took slightly longer to load (and even stutter on iPadOS). I don’t find this issue anymore on the same devices that had this earlier.
    4. The magnifying bubble that popped up while moving the caret in a text field stopped working around iOS 14/15. It was reintroduced back in iOS 16.

    Now, I understand that these regressions are unintentional unlike the botched System Preferences on macOS or the poor handling of Safari UI across iOS 15 and macOS 12.

    I also understand that such regressions are bound to happen as no software is 100% QC-able, but it doesn’t mean one has to wait for an entire year to see these get fixed as is the case with the examples I have mentioned.

    It could also be the case that these issues are localised to my devices, and that the yearly updates perhaps cleans the slate (the good ol’ reboot-machine-to-rid-error fix). Regardless, I have raised bug reports for all these and more, along with feature requests.

    I would like to hear your experiences across major/minor software updates on Apple devices or services.

    Also, let this serve as a PSA to file bug reports if you have the time and effort to spare, it helps the developers a lot (Apple or otherwise). Here is a comprehensive guide to report bugs for a variety of Apple’s offerings:

    Bug Reporting: How and Why?

    E: Through one of the deleted comments made on this post, I learned that the removal of the magnifying bubble while typing in iOS 13 was intentional.

    Are there more themes that support a plethora of apps?

    I know that Nord, Catppuccin and Dracula support a range of apps. There is also Solarized and Gruvbox which have been ported by the community to many other apps.

    I have been using Nord (Solarized before it) for a long time and wanted to change things up. I am not really a fan of the use of purple in Dracula and Catppuccin. So, curious if there are more themes out there?

    A feature I waited for ever since I switched to an iPhone - Photos app can now tag pets.

    I would submit a feedback every time I missed the feature while using the app.

    I can now stop using Google Photos. :D

    What is the average number of iterations with Stable Diffusion? Is there a optimal/consistent configration that one can use?

    I have been struggling with getting a decent image from SD within fewer iterations.

    I have played around with different sampling methods, CFG values, and steps. But unable to find a consistent configuration that gives me decent images.

    Simple prompts that I am struggling with:

    1. a photo of a puppy, intricately detailed, realistic
    2. drawing of a bowl of fruits, manga style

    If I am unable to get good output for simple prompts, I am afraid the output for more complex or abstract prompts will be completely unusable.

    Are there any tricks that can reduce the iterations to give decent images? Any guidance would be really appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Why is it so silent here? and a question on the community rules and policies.

    Itna sannata kyu hai bhai? [Why is it so silent here?]

    Arrived here after reading the post on lemmy.ml.

    However, the community is not as active as I hoped it would. Not many posts, and most posts have zero comments.

    What do you think could drive more engagement here?

    My initial thoughts on this.

    The community could be more active if the rules and moderation policies are made known.

    What are the rules for posting here? Are news articles allowed? Or is it just general articles? What about discussion posts? What topics are allowed for discussion?

    For example, I wanted to post about the recent events around casteism in Madhya Pradesh. But I wasn’t sure if it met the policies and rules. Moreover, recent articles are about general topics or listicles, so I ended up dropping the idea.

    To encourage more posts, here is my daily driver
    • Zoom65 EE with case and PCB foam
    • GMK WoB
    • AEBoards Naevies V2 stock

    This is my sixth keyboard (fourth custom). The experience has been extremely good considering the mostly stock setup.

    Though I am going to stick with this for a while, I do know my next will be a split ergo. Do share your suggestions for a wireless split ergo.

    Any guides or resources for a complete beginner to get started with AI art?

    I am completely fascinated by AI art, and would like to try my hand at it. I know that most of this boils down to prompt engineering.

    Can the community recommend a few resources that can help a complete beginner get bootstrapped quickly?

    I am not sure if this post breaks the rule. Please remove it, if that is the case. However, do point me to the right community where I can post this question again.
