  • Guess they can't finish anything, for what its worth I would have watched it to see where it went.

  • What do you folks do for IRL privacy in terms of CCTV, facial recognition, etc?
  • I don't really bother much in public places, I use umbrellas when it rains and sunglasses when it is sunny, but In general I try to avoid connecting to public WiFi and always use my vpn when I do.

    I dont have any identifying data on my mailbox. I make sure to destroy PII on mail.

    My routine is normal, gray, boring.

  • Anyone else tested the new recording feature?
  • Not yet, I'll wait for it to hit the stable channel

  • I think I'm done being a mod
  • Thanks for your time. Take care of yourself 😊

  • The State of 343 Industries Summary
  • For me I would have preferred if they finished the story instead of locking armor colors behind a battle pass and wasting time with stupid cat ear armor. It ruins the immersion of the game for me, seeing people with flaming auras and kill effects etc.

    They just had to finish the story and deliver good maps and forge for multiplayer, allow armor customization for free and sell map packs and story dlc.

  • [Discussion] What is your price range when you get a new phone?
  • I do this too but aim for 150 max. I use them until the wheels fall off usually. Current one is 6 years old while the previous one I had for 10 years and I bought that one second hand too😄. Better for your wallet and the environment.

  • Assuming we don't have free will, why do we have the illusion that we do?
  • Perhaps it is the illusion of choice and the choice you make was always going to be that one due to all of the events that shaped you and the events that shaped the people that shaped you etc all the way back to the big bang.

    I contemplate this from time to time.

  • What's your plan if Trump wins in November?
  • Have a pint at the Winchester and wait for it all to blow over

  • Thought on Graphene?
  • Thats good to know. Thanks for sharing

  • Bill Gates says not to worry about AI's energy draw
  • We should at least hear what Ja Rule has to say

  • [email protected]: What are the best ways to minimize fingerprinting on Firefox?
  • Do you know if these folks actively develop it or do they just apply patches to the Firefox codebase ?

    Like do they just pre configure a bunch of about config settings and the pre installed search or do they harden the binaries at compile time ?

    I've not kept up with this but I'm curious if there is any real advantage of this over Firefox after it has been configured. If not I would stick with Firefox as it will get security updates quicker by people who know the source code intimately.

    Anyway not shitting on anyone's choices here just curious.

    FYI: Xenia-Canary is now running on steam deck via emudeck

    I was only able to play skate 3 so far with better performance than rpcs3. I didn't change any settings in the conf file. It is using the vulkan renderer.

    I limit the fps to 30, TPD to 8 and GPU to 1200.

    I'm trying a few games here and there to see but It can only improve over time.

    PassAndroid

    I came across this as I needed to install some proprietary app to view a .pkpass file and I discovered this FOSS app instead that does the job and doesnt share the data with any third parties.

    Anyway I'm just spreading the word.

    The text below is copied from fdroid.

    "Displays Passbook (*.pkpass) files & shows the Barcode (QR, PDF417 and AZTEC format). It can be used also when offline.

    This app is a viewer for passes - a pass could be a e.g. boarding-pass for your next flight, a coupon for a nice hot beverage on the destination, a movie ticket, a membership card - there are a lot of possibilities. Basically it is a replacement for a piece of paper or plastic you would normally have to carry with you - so lets save some trees and reduce waste!

    How does it work?

    There are so called espass or pkpass files - you can open them with this app - e.g. when you receive them via email or get an Download-option. The most important content is the BarCode ( QR , AZTEC & PDF417which authorizes you most of the time - but it also has other interesting content like a description - often a time ( that you now can add to your calendar ) - often also locations ( to give you directions ) - just try It out! The app is offline usable once you downloaded the pass!"

    ‘I find Westerners in general, and Europeans in particular, extremely indoctrinated and obsessed with perceptions of their own uniqueness. Many see themselves as chosen people, after going through a one-sided education and after relying on their media outlets, without studying alternative sources.’

    why are grunts aligned with the brutes in H3 after the events in H2

    In halo 2 the grunts side with the elites while the jackels side with the brutes and the prophets.

    Why then in halo 3 are the grunts fighting alongside the brutes and jackels ?

    I've been jumping between games recently and noticed it and I'm wondering was it ever addressed anywhere ?

    Irish MEPs call on EU Council to demand a ceasefire in Gaza

    Irish MEPs across the political spectrum release joint statement calling for ceasefire in Gaza

    Irish MEPs from across a broad political spectrum this morning, Thursday 26 October, released a joint statement calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. The statement echoes the recent resolution passed by Dáil Éireann, the position adopted by the Irish government, and the recent statements of the United Nations Secretary General, and urges the Council of the European Union to call for an immediate ceasefire, as well as urgent efforts to meet the humanitarian needs of people in Gaza, ahead of the Council meeting today.

    The statement was initiated and drafted by Independents 4 Change MEPs Mick Wallace (LEFT) and Clare Daly (LEFT), and is co-signed by MEPs from every political group with Irish representatives, namely: Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan (LEFT) Colm Markey (EPP), Chris MacManus (LEFT), Grace O’Sullivan (Greens/EFA), Ciarán Cuffe (Greens/EFA)and Billy Kelleher (Renew).

    In a press release, Mr Wallace said:

    We feel it is extremely important that as Irish MEPs we stand together and amplify calls for a ceasefire ahead of the European Council meeting today. Ireland is a neutral country with a proud history of peacekeeping and therefore we feel Ireland’s representatives in the European Parliament speak from a unique position. We must do everything we can to stop the slaughter, the death toll is well over 5,000 now. It is important to keep the pressure on for a constructive intervention from the EU in line with international law.”

    Ms Daly also said:

    "The Palestinian people need our urgent support and solidarity, which is why we have asked all the Irish MEPs to join us in calling for a ceasefire. Europe's leaders will meet today and tomorrow to discuss the conflict. The terms of their statement matter. There is talk of them calling only for a “humanitarian pause.” That is not the same thing as a ceasefire - it amounts to a temporary stop to the killing, after which it will continue. It is essential that we remind them that it is imperative that the conclusions of that meeting include a call for a ceasefire, and for urgent humanitarian assistance to Gaza.”

    The text of the statement is as follows:

    "With regard to the current situation in the Middle East and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Irish Members of the European Parliament, from across a broad spectrum of political groups, wish to echo the recent resolution passed by the Dáil; the position adopted by the Irish government; and the statements of the United Nations Secretary General, and therefore urge the Council of the European Union to call for an immediate ceasefire, as well as urgent efforts to meet the humanitarian needs of people in Gaza. We stress the universal applicability of international humanitarian law, its binding nature on all parties in all conflicts and remind the Council that indiscriminate warfare resulting in the killing of civilians cannot be justified - in any circumstances. Given the intensity of hostilities, and the enormous loss of life that has already occurred, we consider that calling for anything less than an immediate ceasefire would depart from the European Union’s responsibility to uphold international law, to protect human life, and to secure peace.

    Signed: Clare Daly Mick Wallace Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan Colm Markey Chris MacManus Grace O’Sullivan Billy Kelleher Ciarán Cuffe"

    Shocking insight into Israel's Apartheid | Roadmap to Apartheid

    With a comparison between apartheid South Africa and the Israel/Palestine conflict, this doc traces the future of one conflict from the past of another. Weaving the history of apartheid into the complex issues facing Israelis and Palestinians, it highlights the frighteningly similar laws and tools used by Israel and apartheid-era South Africa. It's a dark picture of the present but offers hope based on the peace that South Africa eventually found.

    Anyone else having liftoff crash wireguard on android ?

    It seems only happen occasionally with liftoff. No other app. I think it could be too many connections when trying to pull it a lot of communities from all. Has anyone else experienced this ?
