Nabiha Syed will join the Mozilla Foundation as [their] next Executive Director
  • As an engineer I was immediatly annoyed that she isn't a tech/science person. But there might be a reason that we don't know, why they need a lawyer at the helm right now. And she at least seems to be aligned to the principles we need.

  • Lots of times the restaurants won't even have milk
  • Sir, this is a steak house. We have hundreds of baby cows come here every year.

  • This used book that I bought for 12£ on the internet was apparently previously bought from Oxfam for 1.99£
  • A used book for 12£ is maybe 8€ more than I normally spent on used books.

  • I wonder how it affected traffic
  • But will it still think this is car traffic?

  • Night Club [Safely Endangered]
  • Is this the beginning of a horror movie?

  • Winamp has announced that it is opening up its source code to enable collaborative development of its legendary player for Windows
  • I did, mostly Audacious and Amarok. But, deserved or not, winamp has a special place in the heart of almost everyone in my generation.

  • Detroit just had it's first population growth in 66 years. Huzzah!
  • Yeah, your highways are not great. But I don't really like to drive, so I'd prefer you trains. :) What use are high speed trains, if they are 2 hours late?

  • Oh no, I'm being converted...
  • I am just coming from a thread discussing voting for Biden or not is okay under the current circumstances. Reality meets fiction.

  • Maine Cybertruck Owner Sad Everyone Hates His Truck
  • Lol, they used a "learning algorithm" for something we solved decades ago? The responsible engineer needs to get his degree revoked...

  • Google is redesigning its search engine — and it’s AI all the way down
  • Is this really new? Haven't they been using soft computing methods since, basically forever?

  • Human rights
  • A (single use) water bottle with a sport cap is basically a portable bidet. One can even easily adjust the water pressure.

  • Funny, those guys don't usually agree on that much
  • Isn't it everywhere? Liberalism seems to be mostly nice talking with the aim to squelch regular people. I am turkish and I don't think it is much different in the middle east.

  • Funny, those guys don't usually agree on that much
  • This discussion is funny from a German pov, as our main local liberal party (the FDP) is pretty right wing and has been so since the 1940s. "Liberalism" always had a quite neative connotation to me therefore. They are also the party most open to working together with the far right (the AFD).

    Liberalism can be right wing or left wing. It makes more sense to structure the political specrum like this. But even that is far from prefect.

  • Lemmy is a worse platform for women than Reddit was
  • I think regardless of the platform it will get ugly when topics are controversial. How ugly it gets is mostly depending on the level of moderation. It doesn't need many trolls or ill willing people to derail a discussion among hundreds of good meaning people.

    We also tend to concentrate on the things we consider unfavorable. If among 100 comments 5 are sexist, these 5 will get far more attention than the other 95.

    I mean, I've seen people uttering death threads on YouTube, because the YouTuber used butter in a recipe, not margarine. One of several hundred comments under that video, but the only one I remember...

  • who's tried it? what does it taste like?
  • I don't drink alcohol and I am not irish. I am somehow offended ntl.

  • I don't understand Temu.
  • OK, great. I occasionally order at AliExpress and was kind of tempted to try Temu, because of the hype. WIll skip it then.

  • I don't understand Temu.
  • Is it worse than AliExpress?

  • In some cultures, that is considered an honor Samantha!
  • All those old school (former) linux devs used to play DnD back in the 80s, right? Hmm. Satanic panic 2.0?

  • Meet my 5 year old Tabasco - I already killed her 2 times - just gave her a new chance at live

    Grew her 2019 from seed. She flowered a little late so I took her to my office, where I have a perfect nice south facing office. She produced a ton of peppers. Then I "killed" her (cut her of way down, leaving her no leaves at all) and left her. 2 weeks later she came back. So I started giving her water and nutrients. She grew back and gave (less) peppers in 2020. As I have been on and off in the office (guess we all know why) she wasn't treated as she deserved. At the end of the year, I "killed" her again. She came back again. So I gave her water. I gave her way too little nutrients (I hardly ever was at the office, she was mostly watered by a colleague), I never repotted her. I feel like a monster. She didn't produce peppers. Then suddenly in the fall of 2023 she produced 3 proud little peppers. So, I finally decided to take her back home and just repotted her in a nice, bigger pot and gave her the nutrients and fresh dirt (after 5 years...) she desperatly needed. I am somewhat exited what she will do this year.

    [Humblebundle] Another Warhammer literature deal
    www.humblebundle.com Humble Book Bundle: Chronicles of the World of Warhammer by Black Library

    We’ve bundled a mighty collection of Warhammer 40,000 and Age of Sigmar novels to fully immerse readers in the epic and treacherous World of Warhammer!

    Looks interesting. But I literally have dozens of warhammer (fantasy and 40k) books left to read and hear... Oh man, what do you guys think?

    [Humblebundle] Summer Sports Spectacular Bundle
    www.humblebundle.com Summer Sports Spectacular: NBA 2K23 & More

    Pay what you want for a collection of scorching sports games featuring NBA 2K3 and lots more, and help support The Trevor Project with your purchase.

    Still undecided about this one. I like NBA games, but was quite disappointed in the last 2k game I bought (NAB 21), the personal player mode was just so annoyingly micropayment ruined.

    Lethal League Blaze looks cool, but 14€ is probably a little too much for it alone.

    And I read too much unpromising stuff about WWE 2k battlegrounds.

    [Humblebundle] One day left: Martha Wells, A.G. Riddle, and Co. [audiobooks]
    www.humblebundle.com Martha Wells, A.G. Riddle, and More Audiobooks from Recorded Books

    We’ve teamed up with Recorded Books for our newest bundle. Get books like Martha Wells’ The Murderbot Diaries series & A.G. Riddle’s The Long Winter trilogy.

    Bought it a few days ago. Seems to be well regarded on goodreads and a quick hear in made it sound like a quality production.

    Was spiel ihr so?

    Moin,

    vermute zwar nicht, dass sich hier viele her verirren, aber ich mach trotzdem mal den Anfang,

    Was spielt ihr so? Mehr klassisches (DnD, DSA, Cthullhu und co.) oder mehr erzählerisches (PbtA, Fate und co.)?

    Ich selbst bin eher klassisch unterwegs. Zuletzt vor allem DnD. Aber gerne auch Shadowrun oder alles mit der Mutant Year Zero Engine.

    Würde gerne mehr Erzählspiele probieren. Das einzige, was ich je gespielt habe war “Ein ruhiges Jahr” und das war klasse. Aber meine Gruppe ist da konservativ und ich hab zu wenig Zeit um zusätzlich zur Gruppe die lokalen Cons abzuklappern. :(
