Grandfather’s Eyes Light Up While Describing Memories Of Old Country Buffet
  • Before the days of Old Country Buffet we had an all you can eat place (that was huge for a suburb) called Kings Table. We went there all the time for Alaskan King Crab nights. They also had a banana boat bar for making banana, soft serve ice cream, whipped cream, and sugar sauce (chocolate, butterscotch , or strawberry) monstrosities!! Anyone else remember these?!

  • Peter Higgs, physicist who theorised Higgs boson, dies aged 94
  • I studied his work over 20 years ago. I had no idea he was alive at the time. I just figured he long gone like all the other pioneers.

  • Oregon city can't limit church's homeless meal services, federal judge rules
  • I wish more people expressed their faith by caring for people.

  • Enginee(r)ule
  • When’s the last time you saw an engineer doing tensor calculus? And that said, whomever said Einstein wasn’t good at math has also never done tensor calculus.

  • Scientists Develop New Dirt-Powered Fuel Cell That Runs Forever
  • That’s pretty great. I was just expecting this to be a clickbait letdown, but they seemingly found the right geometry for a sustainable energy solution that’s works for a specific industry. I call it a win!

  • When a Coke Plant Closed in Pittsburgh, Cardiovascular ER Visits Plunged
  • “In this type of plant, coal is heated until it turns into coke, an ingredient used to make steel. When heated, coal releases carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and other pollutants.”

  • Screen time linked with developmental delays, study finds
  • It’s talking about parents giving 1 year olds and 2 year olds 1-4 hours of screen time a day. That amount of screen time for developing humans who sleep for a substantial part of the day is most likely poor stimulus in my opinion. I don’t see how you are jumping to parents prone to producing developmentally delayed children. You call nature. I call nurture. But just to check, which parents are more prone to producing children with developmental delays?

  • Satisfied cable management
  • Show me this setup in 6 weeks. I predict a disaster. I projecting my own experience… obviously.

  • Getting my Mac gaming on with the Beige G3!
  • Mostly I respect that you are getting your vintage game on… on the floor. I mean, I too cannot make counter or desk space for my antiquated vintage hardware gaming experiences. I do tend to lean toward a badass steam deck for its mobile compactness for my emulated vintage game cravings.

  • Heatmiser - Pop in G (1996)
  • Yeah, for sure. There was some really great chemistry in there. And not sure if you are from portland, but if you like Heatmiser also check out Neil Gust in No.2, starting with their album No Memory.

  • Linus Tech Tips pauses production as controversy swirls | What started as criticism over errors in recent YouTube videos has escalated into allegations of sexual harassment, prompting the company t...
  • So despite the recent “reactions” from LTT, and just to bring this all back to the beginning… Thank you to Gamers Nexus for doing some damn necessary journalism, which couldn’t have been done without a high level of ethical, and technical competency.

  • Heatmiser - Pop in G (1996)
  • It’s my all time favorite Heatmiser song.

  • Making Music Is(n't) Expensive
  • So true. We couldn’t be living in a better time for inexpensive hardware and free software.

  • Linux friendly CAD programs?
  • I actually learned to love FreeCAD, and was originally running it on windows. It’s quirky, but very powerful, and keeps improving with each revision. With that, the switch to Linux was seamless.

  • Kamitoku Ramen, Honolulu Hawaii
  • Thank you SO much for posting this. It was amazing!!

  • Wish me luck as I install Arch on an old netbook
  • It’s so goddamn liberating! Enjoy the journey!! I installed Linux mint on some super old 32 bit, low powered (arm or atom processor) netbooks from 15 years ago. And it should be said that they were completely unusable 2 years after purchase, with all the extra bloat of windows running on them. Anyway, these netbooks were still underpowered for my purposes today, but I configured them to instantly boot up the sugarizer desktop learning environment, and my 3 and 5 year olds love them. Shortly after this experiment I purchased a SteamDeck, and I couldn’t be happier or more impressed. I’m not a hardcore gamer, and with a 3 and 5 year old, who could have the time? It’s perfect for the few waking minutes after the kids go to bed. Since all this, I’ve been updating more recently “obsoleted” laptops with Linux, and I can totally see my household completely switching over to Linux OS in the next 5 years. Speaking as the house IT guy….

  • Second largest Lemmy instance preemptively un-friends Facebook
  • Looking forward to Lemmy.world pushing the block button when it comes to it…

  • 1% rule: 1% of users actively create new content, while the other 99% only lurk.
  • Also guilty. I guess the first step was admitting I had a problem. But I’m working on it. One reply at a time.

  • Oooopen!
  • Literally depicts every other walk I take with my doberhound.

  • Without reading any documentation…
  • Got it. Perhaps it’s the unfederated + my instance combination that is the hurdle that needs to be jumped to feel like a world wide community rather than a series of loosely connected silos. I’m happy with where I’m starting, but I picked an instance as an easy entry point. Thinking if I choose an instance too specific to one of my interests, I’d be limited to that topic specifically. I really just want it all to interconnect, and have seamless access to all. I know it’s new, and I’m new. I’ll be patient because this is what I’ve really wanted and I’ll wait for it to mature.

  • Without reading any documentation…

    Is there an easy way to brows/add new communities and follow users from within the app? I will fully accept “read the documentation” as an answer!! Thanks!!
