Is a $25,000 Electric Car Even Possible? - YouTube
  • That same guy has made several videos about solid state batteries going back several years.

    Solid state batteries have been promised to be just around the corner for decades. I don't pay them any attention anymore.

  • There's also the Aptera. Starts at $26k, and that's a VERY small-scale operation. I know lots of people are going to give me shit about this one since they've not delivered any cars yet, and it requires a lot of sacrifice, and other reasons, but if you simply have a look at it, that's the type of design that seems totally feasible to sell for $25k at large scale.

    As MKBHD mentions, the batteries make up a huge portion of the cost, but making a more efficient vehicle drives costs down across the board, especially the batteries. Tesla could easily make something similar to hit that price point. They just wouldn't sell a bazillion of them like they do their other cars.

  • No they're not. But that's really irrelevant to a conversation about possibilities. I think they don't sell them here because there are giant tariffs (which, for what it's worth, I am in favor of) that would drive up prices.

  • Don't see many mentions to Waterfox?
  • Meta I find easy to block as none of their services are actually useful.

    Oh honey. Meta is still collecting your data, even if you never use their site.

    But if you use a private browser and a VPN you're probably OK.

  • Steam Deck hits 15,000 games rated Playable and Verified
  • It just sucks that corpos have that kind of leverage to keep people on windows

    Corpo devs do not care what OS you use. It's just that so few gamers use Linux that they can't be bothered to develop for it.

  • Just kidding...
  • Do you really not see the issue with what you're saying?

    I don't know where you got the idea that I have no issue with this. I'm just saying it's not purely malicious as you said.

  • No leaving a Steam account in a will after you die according to Valve
  • Nah, you can already sell accounts and they do nothing

    Their policy and what they do is not necessarily the same thing.

    there have for example been cases in Germany where Facebook was forced to give access to the parents of a deceased

    Giving access to a free account is not the same as giving ownership of thousands of dollars in paid licenses.

  • Immich x FUTO Q&A

    Short version of this interview is that nothing is changing, other than they're going to be asking a flat fee "$5-20" for the app, rather than relying on donations. All donation platforms have been closed. However, if you choose not to, as Louis says "that's between you and your God".

    Project will remain AGPL and thus can be forked at any time. FUTO maintains the trademark of Immich name and logos.

    Sony is gaslighting you. This is why they want you to connect PSN:

    > we collect the information that you provide by entering it into certain Service features. For example, when you want to post in a forum, you provide us the content for the post (which could contain PI which we collect and then display for you on the forum). Likewise, when you use other features such as voice or text messaging, blogs, surveys, user-generated content, activity streams, or social media, we may first collect the information you enter into the feature.

    > We may also automatically or passively collect information about your use of our Services, see the sub-sections below for a list of categories by sources of such information.

    The list just goes on here, but to boil it down: Sony wants dat sweet sweet data.

    What VPN are you using?

    I use Proton. But I continue to run into more and more websites and services that detect my VPN and refuse my connection, or just run literally 40 captchas in a row until I just give up.

    I use Proton because it has a "suite" of products under a single subscription, but that benefit is losing it's allure as some of their products are pretty shitty from a user experience perspective, their customer support is atrocious, and they don't seem to pay any attention to what their users actually want.

    Does anyone track known VPN servers? Is there a specific provider that causes less problems? Does anyone test different VPNs for detection?

    Thinking about cancelling my subscription and moving to Mullvad.

    Pixel 9/9 Pro/XL leaked

    > Pixel 9: with a 6.03-inch screen and a double rear camera. This is the heir to Pixel 8.

    > Pixel 9 Pro: with a 6.1-inch screen and a triple rear camera. This is a new model.

    > Pixel 9 Pro XL: with a 6.7-inch screen and a triple rear camera. This is the heir to the Pixel 8 Pro.

    If we get Pixel desktop I will def have to be upgrading to 9 Pro come Black Friday...

    Thoughts on these SATA/M.2-->SATA/2.5" adapters?

    Trying to squeeze some more storage in my MiniPC. I have questions about these. These use hardward RAID with selectable modes (Individual/JBOD/RAID1/RAID2).

    1. If I use RAID 1 and one of the drives fails, will I know?

    2. If a drive fails, and a slap in a new one, will it internally begin repairing RAID 1 again?

    3. Can I use these as "individual" or JBOD and have 2 separate drives through the same connector, and use something like TrueNAS to software-RAID them?

    Never occurred to me to use it this way until my brother came to visit.

    Playing Helldivers 2. My brother on the desktop on the living room TV. Me on the SteamDeck on the couch next to him. Playing co-op together.

    N100 Mini PC w/ 3xNVMe?

    Not sure why this doesn't exist. I don't need 12TB of storage. When I had a Google account I never even crossed 15GB. 1TB should be plenty for myself and my family. I want to use NVMe since it is quieter and smaller. 2230 drives would be ideal. But I want 1 boot drive and 2 x storage drives in RAID. I guess I could potentially just have 2xNVMe and have the boot partition in RAID also? Bonus points if I can use it as a wireless router also.

    Is it possible to create an OS that simply automatically runs .exe files through WINE/Proton/Bottles?

    I really enjoy Linux but I find myself having to keep Windows partitions around for software that specifically requires Windows.

    Proton makes everything easier by automatically running game files through a translation layer, and it "just works" quite well most of the time.

    Also VanillaOS can apparently auto-spin a container when you try to open a .deb or AUR package (this is my rudimentary understanding).

    Setting up WINE/Bottles, etc. is above my pay grade.

    Is it not possible to create an OS that just does the same thing as Steam but for the entire OS?

    Adding instances to your services?

    Hi friends, I managed to get a few services running (Mobilizon, Mastodon, PeerTube etc.), and I'm just now realizing that by default none of these federated networks are subscribed to anything?

    I'm going to be the only one using these services so I don't care about moderation or defederation. Is there no "subscribe all" button?

    And if not, are there comprehensive lists somewhere I can download and import?

    Thanks in advance.

    Help with NGINX? so close...

    Hi friends. I'm new to the whole homeserver. I managed to make a ton of progress very quickly using CasaOS but I've been hung up on this for a couple of days now.

    I have Jellyfin set up and working properly, locally. I configured Namecheap to forward requests from [subdomain] to [WAN]. I have my router set up to port forward requests from [WAN] 80 and 443 to NGINX on [LAN] port 81. I created a proxy host in NGINX to forward requests from [subdomain] to [LAN Server] on [LAN] port 8097 (Jellyfin container).

    Problem is when I type in [subdomain] into the browser, it takes me to the NGINX login page instead of the Jellyfin it's not forwarding the request? Not really sure what I'm doing wrong here. Any help is appreciated.

    Potential issue I see is that Jellyfin by default fires up on port 8097 but in the settings defaults HTTP to 8096 and...I'm not really sure why. Going to 8096 returns a "site can't be reached" error.

    How to prevent link hijacking on sites like Facebook, Reddit and Twitter?

    Lately I've noticed some mainstream sites injection tracking links into literally every link on their site.

    When I hover over it, it shows the correct link at the bottom of my browser, but if I click it or copy it, it takes me to a hijacked tracker link.

    Then I can't even get the original link without having my activity tracked.

    How do I get the original link that appears at the bottom of my browser?

    anyone willing to walk a noob through getting some services running?

    I've tried to figure some of this stuff out but I really don't know what I'm doing. Most documentation is written with a vocabulary I don't understand. Tutorials assume a high-level understanding of coding, software, CLI and a bunch of other stuff.

    So far I've got an old gaming PC with a R7 2700x + 2060 Super and I think maybe it's overkill. I've got TrueNAS running on it but that's about as far as I got...

    Thinking maybe we can have an open Jitsi meeting and just anyone who needs help can get it (myself included 🙂)?

    Would anyone be interested in something like that?


    E: some people have imagined up some things that I said so let me be clear about what I did not say:

    At no time did I insist, beg, or demand that anyone help me.

    I did NOT ask anyone to help with a specific issue, nor should I be required to.

    I asked if anyone would be willing to help myself and possibly others to get some services running, and I asked to do it in a videoconference setting where we can have a discussion and where you can see what I'm doing as I'm doing it, out of respect for both of our time.

    If you are not interested, you do not need to come in here and announce it, and you sure as shit do not need to speak for anyone else on whether they will want to. Just keep scrolling.

    E2: special thanks to those who actually reached out and offered to help!

    why cant Steam Deck detect display resolution?

    Every PC I've ever used automatically detects and adjusts resolution to the display you connect to it. Even Nintendo Switch will detect when it's docked and automatically adjust the display resolution. But on Steam Deck you literally have to adjust the display resolution for every game, every time you switch displays.

    Since getting the SD I have shoved my PC into another room to displace the heat (until I get a mini-split) and I just stream from it to the Deck, whether docked at my desk or on the couch or on the big screen. But this really complicates that process unnecessarily.

    This has also not been fixed in Nobara or Chimera.

    What's the limitation there?
