Comment on a YT video about Windows on ARM
  • Linux wont take off until the friction for new users is low enough that the layman can resolve issues without resorting to techniques outside of their understanding and patience. Even as someone who uses linux, there are a ton of things that should have a GUI / just be a context menu entry. If you can get the same amount of work done with a button click rather than typing out a complicated command line string, you might as well use the GUI, right click menu, etc. and make it easier for the typical person. People these days can barely use tablets, and those already dumb things down to icons you tap. Unfortunately, making it accessible to the lowest common denominator is what makes things popular a major factor in making things popular

  • Could a small planet actually be possible?
  • Lets say you had a sphere of bismuth (densest non radioactive element) with the mass of the moon. It would have a radius of 755 miles. To have a mass similar to earth it would need to be much larger. Curvature would be relatively noticable on the horizon.

    An osmium sphere with the mass of the moon would have radius of 571 miles

  • Minecraft Is Being Ported To Dreamcast And GameCube | Time Extension
  • Not from microsoft but rather from nintendo. Same reason portal 64 got axed - the library he used had nintendo proprietary stuff but valve was apprehensive about being sued even if he used an open source library to replace it and didnt use any nintendo software or branding

  • This started as adding onto a preexisting meme and it turned into a format to vent
  • Why dont you go tell [the] paralyzed to just get up and pick something up off the shelf. Its so easy, isnt it? They just made their mind up to be dead weight and have people take care of them.

    Just because you dont suffer from something or cant physically see it doesnt mean its not real, and just because you are capable of something doesnt mean everyone is, even if they WANT to be capable of it.

  • Anti Malware with Linux
  • To be fair there are known vulnerabilities such as xz in a specific version range that can be detected. While it's not needed as long as you stay up to date, it might be one avenue to look at

  • The mask ban shit is unreal.
  • The problem with odd is that it prevents you from doing things that you want to do but you still want to do it or recognize that you need to do it but now lack the motivation or will. Unlike conservatives, you are just unable to and not loudly and violently opposed to it

  • will i damage my car electrical system with a 24v solar panel
  • A car output is going to be ~12-14Vdc and the solar panel at 24V. You do not want to connect those two together. Ideally you have some kind of switch that connects the input to the bluetti only to the solar panel or only to the car outlet, and to the car output only if it is present. You can probably use a contactor or a heavy duty relay that is 12V and connect the NC contact to the panels, NO to the car, and COM to the bluetti. Add a capacitor to dampen spikes whenever the system switches and connect the grounds together. A bjt jank, and also have to check the relay ratings / coil power usage

  • will i damage my car electrical system with a 24v solar panel
  • An inverter is DC to AC. What he needs is DC to DC if anything. It should also not be put in parallel with the output of either type of converter because they can be backdriven and AC+solar panel does not sound like a good combo
