  • So just like European settlers they took all the resources and gave the natives bee smallpox.

  • Rule
  • I'm talking more so about HDDs, which were still very prevalent back then. SDDs wouldn't hit similar size to price for a few more years.

    I had a mid-range laptop back then that was at least 500+ gigs with a HDD. And when I got my desktop, which was a hand-me-down 2012 dell inspiron from my grandmother, it had a 2TB HDD.

    These days SSDs are fast and cheap, so the 1TB standard not really changing a ton has more to do with the switch from HDDs to SSDs.

    I could be misremembering a few things here, so feel free to correct me.

  • AMD CEO Lisa Su reminisces about designing the PS3's infamous Cell processor during her time at IBM
  • Multi-core CPUs were still starting out to be fair, but they were definitely at least somewhat mainstream by the time of the 360/ps3. The 360 was tri-core, and was considered easier to develop for since all three of those cores shared resources. Meanwhile, the cell architecture is hard to develop for even by modern standards. As such, most games only made use of the PPE and left the SPE alone.

  • Rule
  • On the one hand I think it's kinda just the natural progression of things. The reason we haven't been feeling the need for huge storage is because hard drives underwent a huge boom that rapidly outpaced our memory needs. Like even 10 years ago, 1TB was pretty much the standard, and kinda still is. We also used to have optical disks that most of the game data would just live on.

    On the other hand, there is no reason for a remake of a PS2 game to take up 70 gigs.

  • Proton Pass for Linux
  • Gives me hope for a proton drive app. As soon as that's available and viable I'll be able to drop my mega subscription.

  • New to the concept of free energy. [More in body. There is no bottom to the crazy here.]
  • I remember being 12 and thinking I could invent infinite energy because I just learned how gears work. I was devastated to learn about torque.

  • wow. sensible
  • What these people don't realize is you're never gonna get AGI by just feeding a machine an infinite amount of raw data.

  • What Era was the best and why was it the 90s?
  • Fontawesome and its consequences have been a disaster for web development.

  • MSI Claw 8 AI+ Gaming Handheld Powered by Intel Lunar Lake and Intel Arc Battlemage Graphics
  • AI+

    Absolutely not. This thing is going to perform horribly because half the processor die is dedicated to something nobody's gonna use.

    If this were a business laptop then I'd understand adding AI. But this is a gaming handheld, how the hell will this help?

  • Sorry you were lied to by a shitty 90s thriller movie rule
  • I like both too, I just don't get why people hate feathered dinosaurs.

  • Sorry you were lied to by a shitty 90s thriller movie rule

    I don't actually hate jurassic park, the title is purely facetious.

    Top 200 Defederated instances from the Fediverse (May 2024)
  • I don't know the whole deal with them, but off the top of my head I know it's a very far-right social media site that was fairly mainstream for a while. It got a lot of media coverage after getting hacked, so I guess a lot of people ended up blocking it once they heard of it.

    I don't know the full story. They were probably just a bunch of trolls like a lot of the other instances.

  • Top 200 Defederated instances from the Fediverse (May 2024)
  • It's the number of instances that have blocked them.

    Accounts can't defederate afaik. There's a way to block instances on some apps, but it's client-side and really just hides posts from that instance.

  • Top 200 Defederated instances from the Fediverse (May 2024)
  • Really basic summary

    Federated means that instances are connected, i.e. accounts and posts can interact with ones.

    Defederated means that one of the instances is blocked by the other, so all communication between the two is blacklisted.

  • Some "Law"
  • Yes

    And yes

  • Kobold rule
  • Clearly you lack the whimsy to see them

  • It's totally fine.
  • Looks intentional. I don't think it's even AI generated, but there's too few pixels to tell for sure.

  • What are your thoughts about the Dragon Quest series, what are your favorite titles or gameplay elements?
  • Absolutely loved DQ9. Never finished it, but I played the hell out of it as a kid. Revisited it recently and it still holds up pretty great. Kept me playing more than 11 did, which is the only other one I've really played. 11 is awesome, but I just don't vibe with it as much as 9.

  • Ruletism
  • Despite there being a huge overlap between the three, they all hate each other.

  • Daily marijuana use outpaces daily drinking in the US, a new study says
  • So statistically speaking, at least some of the cool kids are doing it?

  • Wacom tablet touch wheel doesn't work on wayland

    Hey, I've been daily driving wayland since plasma 6 released. The improvements are stunning, and it's actually responsive on my multi monitor setup.

    Main problem I've been having is with my drawing tablet. It works fine, but the touch/scroll wheel doesn't register. I can't find anything in the settings about it, so my first assumption is it's just not implemented yet. But no matter how many searches I do I can't find anyone with the same problem.

    I only have this problem in wayland, in X11 it functions just as intended. It's not a huge issue, it just really screws with my muscle memory. I'd just love to be able to use my tablet properly with wayland so I don't have to switch back to the laggy mess that is X11.

    Tablet: Wacom Intuos Pro Distro: Garuda Linux (arch-based) GPU: Nvidia RTX 3060 Plasma version: 6.0.3-1 libinput version: 1.25.0-1

    If this is the wrong community or if any other info is required just let me know. I originally posted on [email protected] but then realized that community was mostly dead.

    In case it isn't obvious this is (mostly) ironic lol



    A discord friend of mine has been streaming his miitopia playthrough so it's been fresh on my mind. Dominic my beloved.
