American arrested in Turks and Caicos over ammo found in bag gets suspended sentence of 52 months
  • You just completely switch the argument with a red herring.

    It doesn't matter whether that person is a safe gun owner or not here. And a lost round of ammunition is such an armchair take it makes me question if you should even have an opinion on the subject...

    A round of ammunition in your bag should not equate to years of prison, end of story.

    I had a box of .22 rounds in my backpack that I was bringing back from the gun store. Lo and behold it was loose, and some had unknowingly fell into my bag. I didn't notice they were there for years until I did a deep clean of my backpack. No one counts throw-away ammunition.

  • Biden administration canceling student loans for another 160,000 borrowers
  • Oh look, another "We're not doing enough" doomsayer dismissing good news because no one else is allowed to celebrate positive things.

  • Lifehack
  • Oof, this is definitely a:

    Every lie incurs a debt to the truth

    Sort of thing. It's not going to be fun when your child understands that there is no school on weekends, you'll lose a lot of trust overnight with this.

  • T-Mobile imposes $5 monthly price hike on customers using older plans
  • Same. I have 5G off because it's just so bloody slow and unreliable.

    Let's not even talk about the problems where periodically I can't make any outbound calls and no one can call me. Which has been a problem for at least the last 5 years, for both me and my wife.

  • Absolute legend
  • Ah, the circle of life

  • Absolute legend
  • They usually do yes however it's all about prioritization.

    You may have hundreds or thousands or open requests and issues.

    With tens of thousands of closed issues that were either not reproducible, not actually problems, or largely indecipherable.

    There's usually a feature roadmap which is where most of the development money and time is spent. If it's an older business application then certain bugs might easily take weeks to find, fix, test, validate, go through user acceptance, A/B test, and then deploy. But fixing is expensive work, so if the bug isn't severe it's usually deprioritized next to higher priority work.

  • Big Tech to EU: "Drop Dead"
  • If north America & Australia's biggest exports start having effect they will be very pro-regulation. Just pro-regulatory-capture.

  • Big Tech to EU: "Drop Dead"
  • How does taxing revenue from digital technology where it's generated work?

    Can you explain what that means for me.

  • 'Stop threatening Taiwan', its new president William Lai tells China
  • I like how they say Taiwan Independence is a dead end.

    Taiwan is already independent. China wants to undo that, but they make sure to word it as if Taiwan is a rebelling State instead.

  • Maybe those 20 seconds were because of the lack of getting raises?
  • To be fair a security camera would be more like $300-900 and the install, wiring into the freezer...etc would be another $1-2k.

    Still not comparable, but that's definitely not just $100.

  • Apple limits third-party browser engine work to EU devices
  • Yep, and Google does the same shit.

    On Pixel phones you have the search bar at the bottom, which you cannot remove, replace, resize, or configure.

    In the EU you can configure it to change your default search engine. In North America you cannot, and are forced to use Google.

    And on Google forums anyone who complains gets attacked by a wave of simps saying "Then just don't buy a pixel then, go somewhere else if you don't like it".

    So tired of this shit.

  • Joe Biden spreads more insane Zionist propaganda at a graduation speech
  • As is typical for MAGAs

    They hallucinate more than LLMs

  • That Blue MAGA outreach...
  • Being a non-voter has always benefited Republicans over the last few decades.

    This is why campaigns to suppress and reduce the voting population or the ability for people to vote are so effective for republicans. When you reduce the number of voters Republicans win, there is a bias towards Republicans being more willing to go out and vote and Democrats being less willing to.

  • That Blue MAGA outreach...
  • Afaik the "cat h line" of this is true isn't it?

    I'm going to guess this is a tactic used to push Democrats away from voting by poisoning the well.

    Acting like Democrats reaching out in order to spoil the image and make actual communication less effective.

    And based on the comments in this thread it obviously works, folks fall for this hook line and sinker.

  • Get rid of them.
  • Yeah, the post said it right at the end. America.

  • "Portal" Between Dublin and NYC Shut Down After OnlyFans Model Flashes It
  • Seriously and it's a hot topic so it's going to get this sort of attention.

    Let it sit for a while and it'll become normalized and these sort of antics will die off.

    Just let people express themselves as long as it's not dangerous holy crap.

  • 1000+ Firefox for Android extensions now available – Mozilla Add-ons Community Blog
  • I mean, that's not surprising though is it? If a FOSS tool I made has an additional feature that requires my own backend to support, then there has to be a backend to support it.

    The FE that uses it is still FOSS, and one could always build their own API to the specs outlined by the client.

    They could OSS their server side code ofc, that'd be cool. But that also takes sometimes double the effort to do well, and keep custom tweaks and changes either separate and proprietary, or build out a complex way for them to be dynamically injected. So I don't really blame them on that one tbh.

  • GOP introduces bill that would send anyone convicted of unlawful activity on a campus since Oct. 7th, 2023 to Gaza.
  • Remember, this is not only the kind of shit that would get proposed but would be the kind of shit that would pass in a future Republican controlled state with Fuhrer Trump at the helm.

    It sounds ridiculous and insane now, but remember, there are representatives that actually believe in this, and don't think it's rhetoric.

    Their voter base as well would happily see "the other" carted off, in good fascist fashion.

  • Right to Repair Act passes Oregon legislature

    This is great news, and a strong step forward.

    A big part of this are the limitations around part pairing. Which often prevents repairs as the parts on the device are paired to each other and do not allow you to swap them out.

    Recently this has become a problem even for EUVs like OneWheel. Who lock consumers out of repairing or modifying their devices.

    Whenever I try and go to this instance it shows that an unexpected error has occurred. What's the dealio?

    The website itself appears to work.

    9 Nvidia sued after senior employee accidentally showed off confidential files taken from previous employer during a video meeting

    French tech firm Valeo accused Nvidia of using stolen information as a "blueprint for future corporate espionage."

    Nvidia sued after senior employee accidentally showed off confidential files taken from previous employer during a video meeting

    Seems an engineer stole source code, docs, presentations...etc related to car technology.

    How do you search for and go to a community directly?

    I can't seem to figure out how to do this in liftoff.

    The best search and find method that I have for communities is to create a new post and I can search through the communities on an instance there.

    However I'm not sure how else to search for communities, it just go directly to one, as the search function isn't to helpful right now.
