Google Is the Only Search Engine That Works on Reddit Now Thanks to AI Deal
  • Most of the originalish content on lemmy are linux related stuff, memes and porn. The latter 2 are mostly image/video based, so you don't search for that very frequently and easily. I can see that in the future it will become a very relevant source of info in linux admin and user circles.

    I go back to r*ddit sometimes for some local content which is non existent on lemmy. I see that the tech related subs are mostly dead there, or at least only shadows of their former selfs. E.g. go to r/linux, sort by top all time. In the first 100 results you will barely find anything posted after the exodus.

  • I created all the beaches in a city from scratch.
  • Why would it be a plot twist, it's called armchair mapping, and the most common way of mapping

    I have some random spots in the world where I draw buildings and paths regularly. I have no irl connection with them, I just randomly zoomed there once and bookmarked it. There is something relaxing, zen like feeling when you just trace houses and paths. Never intend to go there, but it's nice to create something. Maybe one day a guy will wonder who the hell draw his village in South Kongo, and why is it much more detailed than the regional capital

  • I created all the beaches in a city from scratch.
  • Nice job! It's not that hard to find where you worked if you include some text, it's here:

    Some tips:

    • A rectangles should be rectangular. You can assume a football field or similar sport field has right angles, so you should draw it as a rectangle. There is a built in tool for that. In the iD editor you used, select the field, rightclick-> Square, or press the Q key on your keyboard. This is usually true for semi detached houses as well. People like to build rectangles.
    • I think the place=locality tag on this thing is wrong: I can't figure out what is that from the aerial imagery, but locality in osm terminology is something different:

    The place=locality tag is used to name an unpopulated location for which there is no extant feature to which the tag could be associated.

    Maybe the translation is wrong in the editor for this item, I see you used Turkish language. If it's some kind of an empty plaza or paved place, use place=square (wiki) or highway=pedestrian + area=yes: a hard-surfaced, open pedestrian area:

    These are small problems, it's really nice, keep up the good work!

    It's also recommended to reach out to the local community, they can help a lot. You can find your official channels on this site for any place of the World:,34.03161&zoom=5.52

  • Batagaika Crater, Chersky Range of northeastern Siberia, Russia

    The Batagaika Crater, located in the Chersky Range of northeastern Siberia, Russia, is the largest permafrost crater in the world. One kilometer (0.6 miles) long, 100 meters (328 feet) deep, and growing, it has been sinking due to thawing permafrost since the 1960s. Batagaika’s rim is extremely unstable and the site of regular landslides, retreating by as much as 30 meters (98 feet) in a single year.

    If Clinton, Trump, and Did Not Vote were presidential candidates in 2016
  • Who debated that. Historically, culturally Russia is European. Most of the population of Russia lives on the western side of the Urals.

    But using it as a good example of elections, well... In the US you can choose from 2 candidates. In russia you can select from 1...

  • Accident on Bakkersstraat in Amsterdam, 1950

    Machine translation, I don't speak Dutch:

    > The bend of the tramway from the Bakkersstraat to the Amstel was too tight to be taken in a normal way. That is why the track first crossed the track on the Amstel and then to connect to that track via an extra arch. The arch was protected with chained posts. However, on 6 September 1950 it went wrong and a tram set of line 4 next from the Bakkersstraat could not brake in time, so the head of the motor car in the Amstel dived.

    Ad-injecting malware posing as DwAdsafe ad blocker uses Microsoft-signed driver
  • What really stood out to ESET researchers was the embedded driver signed by Microsoft. According to its signature, it was developed by a Chinese company named Hubei Dunwang Network Technology.

    [...] according to our research, this software was advertised as an internet café security solution aimed at Chinese-speaking individuals. It purports to improve the web browsing experience by blocking ads and malicious websites, but the reality is quite different — it leverages its browser traffic interception and filtering capabilities to display game-related ads. It also sends some information about the computer to the company’s server, most likely to gather installation statistics

    Sounds like MS was fooled some way, they don't check Chinese only software that carefully? Historically ms had good relations with the Chinese state (E.g. Windows 10 China Government Edition) It sounds like this was targeted to Chinese users.

    They don't know how it slipped through, or they don't want to tell us...

  • Street-Complete, like Pokemon Go but for good.
  • All of them use the same data (osm is actually a databasae) so if data like that is missing, you won't see that in other osm based apps, you (or someone else) have to add it first...

    Magic Earth uses some extra overlays for hotels, and OrganicMaps had some controversial deal about adding 3rd party hotel data (basically that's an ad on the map, and a lot of people don't like that). OrganicMaps map data updates monthly, it became regular in the previous months, Magic Earth similar but sometimes they skip some months. OsmAnd can be updated hourly if you pay for it or if you are a regular osm contributor, monthly in the free tier

  • Alternative to GrapheneOS
  • You can disable microg connecting to google servers, but basically you get a standard gms free experience, with most apps simply not working from play store. They list in the wiki how and why they connect to google:

    A completely google free experience would be unusable for "normal" people, so they somewhat right as they target "normal" users. I also don't like /e/, but because they are deliberately obfuscating a lot of things in their documentation, and they try to sell their os as something genuine, but it's mostly just AOSP with microG.

  • Topography of South America. Relief map from 1922 that has been recreated using 3D rendering techniques.
  • Amazon's discharge is not big because of the mountains, but it flows around the equator, where the rain never stops.

    The upper section in the Andes it's called Apurímac. Just see the images on wiki, it's not very wide while leaving the mountains, it gets most of its water downstream

  • Trying to rescue a 1GB RAM laptop
  • Yeah, it's not quick, there is no noticeable difference in speed. Random read should be much quicker. But you can't really buy ide hdds anymore and they will die sooner or later, and the price of small m.2 sata ssds are falling.

  • Trying to rescue a 1GB RAM laptop
  • You can buy IDE m.2 converter. There are usb to floppy converters, usb drive shows up as floppy drive. You can attach modern peripherals to old computers, this kind of retro world with modern and old parts mixed is funny.

  • What do you prefer to selfhost?
  • From what I heard is that the NPM project only has 1 developer and so they can’t really respond and fix security flaws in a proper timeframe.

    It's mostly just nginx with a webui. You can even see the nginx config files if you bash into the container. It has the same bugs as upstream nginx. Do not expose the management port to the internet.

    Plus compared to normal nginx, it's harder to misconfigure it. Most of my services are just the default config, so I can't mess it up accidentally.

    About lockouts: Once also happened me, but that was just a messed up update, next update fixed itself. If you lock yourself out you can usually edit the db directly, it defaults to sqlite, but I used it with mariadb.

  • Persian Pontoon bridge from Anatolia to Thrace
  • Xerxes' pontoon bridges were constructed in 480 BC during the second Persian invasion of Greece (part of the Greco-Persian Wars) upon the order of Xerxes I of Persia for the purpose of Xerxes' army to traverse the Hellespont (the present-day Dardanelles) from Asia into Thrace, then also controlled by Persia (in the European part of modern Turkey).[1]

    The bridges were described by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus in his Histories, but little other evidence confirms Herodotus' story in this respect. Most modern historians accept the building of the bridges as such, but practically all details related by Herodotus are subject to doubt and discussion.'_pontoon_bridges

    Big Wind - The most powerful fire engine of the world: 2 MIG-21 jet engines mounted on a T-34 tank base

    It's for extinguishing oil well fires, owned and developed by MOL, the Hungarian oil conglomerate. It was used in Kuwait after the Kuwait-Iraq war, here is a video of it in action:

    It's still in use and maintained, the base was replaced with newer tank recently, as it was hard to find replacement parts for such an old model.

    Video from some years ago, timestamped, there is a lot of Hungarian narration before that point:

    Good article in English about this beast, with a lot more images:
