TIL norway has a homocide map with exact locations of murders.
  • Being able to look through all of the details of the victims and crimes feels a little ghoulish.

  • TIL norway has a homocide map with exact locations of murders.
  • Looks like a Swede crossed the border one time and was immediately murdered by a Norwegian.

  • Top EU Court Says There’s No Right To Online Anonymity, Because Copyright Is More Important
  • Great... so we're reaffirming that society's various structures exist purely for the benefit of monied interests, as ever. Any benefit the regular person sees from arrangements is purely coincidental, your rights stop at the point at which a corporation needs them to.

  • Rare white bison sighted in Yellowstone evokes Native American prophecy
  • heralding major change

    In a good way though, right? Right...?

  • Microsoft postpones Windows Recall after major backlash — will launch Copilot+ PCs without headlining AI feature
  • Did MS derive any particular benefit from Timeline? It was a lot more localised as far as I recall. Recall seems geared to give them a lot more data that they could monetise.

  • He gunned down a gay journalist & left him to die. Now he's paying the price.
  • Yeah... regardless of circumstance, that title is some shitty journalism when you editorialise that much.

  • Microsoft in damage-control mode, says it will prioritize security over AI
  • That is basically the biggest fuck up you could make as a government contracted technology provider. They even let it happen and hid it deliberately.

  • Samyang: Denmark recalls Korean ramen for being too spicy
  • Pretty sure I had some of the 3x last week, though I didn't finish them. They were pretty spicy yes but also they just didn't taste very nice, it didn't seem worth it.

  • What industry do you work in and what are the LPT the general public should know about it?
  • It's okay to not start in your ideal job on day one and to take sideways shifts to get closer to it. I went from phone monkey in a call centre, to a letter monkey, to a software tester, to a software business analyst (all at the same company), to a software product owner, to a software product manager. I gravitated back towards my stronger IT oriented passions over time.

  • Elon Musk threatens to ban Apple devices from his companies over OpenAI partnership
  • He believes a heavily embedded AI integration on iOS with a 3rd party is a violation of security and privacy... because its not his 3rd party being integrated with.

  • 2024 European Parliament election in Germany
  • Gerxit on the way. Only a matter of time.

  • Outrage over ‘massacre’ in Gaza as Israel rescued four hostages
  • Bombing of Nuseirat’s busy market area began soon after the raid started at around 11am (9am BST), turning the neighbourhood into “smoke and flames”, Muhannad Thabet, a 35-year-old resident, told AFP.

    “People were screaming – young and old, women and men,” he said. “Everyone wanted to flee the place, but the bombing was intense and anyone who moved was at risk of being killed due to the heavy bombardment and gunfire.”

    At least one wave of heavy airstrikes was launched to secure the passage of the three men, who had been held together. Argamani was rescued alone, from a separate location.

    Not. Discriminate. Enough.

  • Outrage over ‘massacre’ in Gaza as Israel rescued four hostages
  • Some of the loudest voices in the anti-war movement in Israel have been families of hostages. Considering the track record of their military action, exchanges and peace talks are a far safer way for their family members to be returned, and they are not happy in their loved ones being used as a pretext for a purge of Gaza's civilian population.

  • Linux really has come a long way
  • I'm going to try to take this in the spirit that it was provided, but you're using a lot of "..."s, and a lot of implications that what I'm saying is obvious, for a person trying to provide earnest assistance. I wasn't requesting technical support or expressing surprise at these things, I was merely expressing that these were the things I was generally encountering difficulty with my transition to Linux as a daily driver.

    The DisplayLink driver for instance is running, and basically functional, but ends up running slowly, with distortions, and instability. It also isn't signed, so my plan to still run Secure Boot with the distro I'm using alongside Windows is out (without a lot of faff), but that largely won't matter excusing some specific work setups that I don't currently have to worry about. Having useful AMD specific driver level tools on Windows that don't exist in Linux isn't a surprise, it is a discouragement.

    Forum content and non-Reddit content are a pain to locate, especially when you don't know how to frame your problem in Linux syntax, as you say. Communities are either open but in specific places that I will never find without already knowing about it, or happening in places that aren't accessible without having already joined, like the Discord of the specific software I need guidance on. My experience has been that there is basic info and there is advanced info out there, but intermediate info that lets you bridge the gap is a challenge to locate, especially with subtle differences in certain steps that are distro/package manager specific. Yet I press on.

  • Linux really has come a long way
  • I'll say it. Cats have bad work ethic.

  • Linux really has come a long way
  • I'm not having a great time with DisplayLink driver support, personally. Various applications I use with mixed levels of support too, along with missing out on Windows specific GPU features.

    This has been my most successful round of Linux adoption, but there are still niggling issues and confusion. The biggest difficulty is that my accumulated support knowledge of like 20 years is useless and I am relearning basic issue identification and resolution processes.

    The internet being a raging dumpster fire, support is kind of patchy on more niche topics. All the good, useful discussions are largely happening behind closed doors at this point on everyone's Discords and whatnot.
