How can I send 50gb+ file over internet to friend?
  • for reasons I don’t completely understand, Resilio Sync connections seem to be quicker and more reliable

    Resilio runs a "relay" server to facilitate connections where neither peer has properly set up port forwarding. Only downside of Resilio is its not open source, so you just kinda have to take their privacy policy at face value. As long as op isn't sending something super sensitive though, it probably is no big deal.

  • Libertarians be like
  • prior to right-wing appropriation in the 1960/70's.

    Because when its been this way for long enough to be considering retirement, the way it used to be is pretty irrelevant to the discussion.

    It's like calling Republicans the party of Lincoln. It has no connection to today's politics.

  • Are business cards still a thing?
  • Because he paid $10k for a booth to talk about bird safe window tinting, and can actually answer questions about bird safe window tinting. Dude wants to go through all that work into maybe fooling me into giving up my work login credentials, more power to him.

  • Costco accused of “greedflation”: Wholesaler reports increase in earnings while hiking up prices
  • Would it? Their profit margin on goods is minuscule. Their profit margin on memberships is (practically) infinite. Losing subscribers could cost them big on their money printing department, and may not end up having the benefit they're after.

  • Stupid question but is it possible to get a virus from an MKV file.
  • Definitely no, viruses need 48-72 hours of incubation before the .mkv host becomes contagious. If the file is <24 hours old, I'd look for another source.

    If you're worried your computer might be infected, you should consider swapping your case LEDs with UV lights to purify your system.

  • Is Carbon Capture and Storage more expensive than we thought?
  • Who is "we"? I've never ever ever seen a carbon capture and storage demonstration that was even within an order of magnitude of the cost of simply reducing emissions, or planting trees.

    CCS is a pipe dream being pushed by fossil fuel companies to justify inaction.

    We need to be acting as if it will never work. Keep funding research, because it could be a way to fast track climate recovery, but on all other roads assume it does absolutely nothing.

  • MultiVersus studio claims ability to purchase extra lives with real money was "a bug" that was "not an intended feature in the game"
  • I mean, it happens to all of us. Just the other day I was working on letting users change the font in an app and I accidentally made it so they needed to enter a valid credit card number to log in, complete with detailed instructions, and then accidentally charged them $20.

    Not sure how any of that happened. I'll definitely get around to disabling it soon though, I promise.

  • Energy buffs give small modular reactors a gigantic reality check
  • Yes, and SMR tech is not mature enough to be considered useful, BUT if it can overcome that hurdle, it has the potential for applications that need exceptionally high availability, like data centers targeting five 9s availability.

    Energy costs aren't always the only consideration

    Why a carbon tax on investment income could make it less profitable to pollute

    cross-posted from: https://sh.itjust.works/post/3345069

    > Following up on an paper posted earlier this week on disproportionate carbon emissions based on income. This article, by one of the paper's authors, proposes the possibility of imposing carbon tax on investment income as a more equitable means of influencing emissions. > > >Instead of putting the responsibility for cutting emissions on consumers, maybe policies should more directly tie that responsibility to corporate executives, board members, and investors who have the most knowledge and power over their industries. Based on our analysis of the consumption and income benefits produced by greenhouse gas emissions, I believe a shareholder-based carbon tax is worth exploring.
