"Hardware Error" after re-powering a broken washing machine

  • "Hardware Error" after re-powering a broken washing machine

    Hello,

    Today my washing machine completely broke down. My parents desperately tried to get it working, but it resulted in the circuit breakers tripping and my server (an old Dell Wyse thin client) experiencing a hard power off.

    When I tried to turn it back on, I received these errors on the screen.

    I ran a memtest, and it completed without any issues. I also created a disk image backup just in case.

    Is there any chance of getting this machine running again, or is it only fit for utilization?

    be more like dogs
  • I guess I can do it. It doesn't sound too complicated 😀

  • Windows is hell, i need to do something
  • Imagine switching to Linux and installing Microsoft Edge 💀

  • Windows is hell, i need to do something
  • Indeed, I use VSCodium on my Fedora system every day, but since the question was about VSCode, I provided information specifically related to VSCode.

    Debian rigorously tests its packages over an extended period before they are released in the official version, ensuring a very stable system. This approach means the software is generally older, but it's been thoroughly vetted. Fedora, on the other hand, provides newer software while still maintaining a good level of stability.

    On the other hand, Arch Linux — and its sub-distributions like Manjaro and Gentoo — releases software much more quickly, sometimes almost immediately which can kill your system during updates. I'd go so far as to say that Arch Linux is less stable than Windows.

    TL;DR: If you don't want to find out five minutes before an online meeting that your system won't boot — avoid Arch Linux.

  • Windows is hell, i need to do something
  • In all honesty, you should decide between Debian and Fedora. If you're new to this, stay away from Arch Linux, Gentoo, or Manjaro. Simplicity is key. The two systems I mentioned are known for their reliability, so you should be fine with either one.

  • Quad9 censoring DNS requests?
  • Okay. I figured it out.

    9.9.9.9 has something they call Threat Blocking. I need to use 9.9.9.10 to keep using their DNS without Threat Blocking.

    But why are they blocking it?

  • Quad9 censoring DNS requests?

    I noticed that Quad 9 is not able to respond to the spy.pet query: $ dig spy.pet @9.9.9.9 +short ;; communications error to 9.9.9.9#53: timed out

    But Cloudflare DNS is able to do it: $ dig spy.pet @1.1.1.1 +short 104.26.0.165 104.26.1.165 172.67.74.73

    And to be sure, I checked another domain with the same TLD to rule out the option that Quad9 is unable to handle the .pet TLD, but I received a correct answer... $ dig hello.pet @9.9.9.9 +short 3.64.163.50

    Does Quad9 censor DNS queries?

    Sometimes I think this whole process of deleting content from Reddit in protest hasn't really worked out for everyone...

    Steam App with Wayland

    It seems that the Steam app only supports with X11 (and with Wayland, I need to use xwayland to run it).

    How can I enable native wayland support? And if I can't, is there perhaps a mod or alternative steam client that will enable me to do so?

    Edit: this may be relevant: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/4924

    [Solved] Self Hosted Calendar

    Hi, everyone!

    For several years, I've relied on NextCloud as a substitute for Google services. The time has come to say goodbye and move on in life. I've decided to replace my NextCloud instance with separate services for files, calendar, photos, notes, and to-do lists.

    I've already found alternatives for all services, except for the calendar.

    Does anyone have experience with FOSS projects that would allow me to self-host a calendar? I'm looking for something that supports CalDAV, has its own (pretty) user interface (webui), caters to multiple users, and supports multiple calendars.

    And if anyone is interested in the alternatives I've found for each NextCloud component, here's the list:

    NextCloud Files -> File Browser NextCloud Notes -> Joplin NextCloud Photos -> Immich NextCloud Tasks -> Vikunja NextCloud Calendar -> ???___

    Edit:

    In the end, I used Radicale software. I deployed it in a docker container and it worked almost right out of the box.

    Is the Fediverse truly decentralized? Not exactly.

    The author examined the distribution of instances in the fediverse. Given that many instances are hidden behind CDNs like Cloudflare or Fastly, the author employed ActivityPub's functionality to discover the actual hosting locations of servers. More than half (51%) of the fediverse is hosted within a single hosting company. The author suggests that the fediverse hosted mostly with a few major providers, deviates from its initial objectives.

    Periodic reports, Linux and User Agents

    Hello,

    I've been using GNU/Linux as my primary operating system for several years. Every year, various websites release statistical reports on their users, detailing the operating systems they use.

    I've noticed that many privacy add-ons spoof the User Agent to make the browser appear as if it's on Windows. Despite using GNU/Linux, my browser presents itself as if it were on Windows 10.

    My dilemma is whether I should switch the User Agent to Linux. By spoofing, I'm potentially decreasing the statistics for Linux in these regular reports, which might lead to Linux not being taken seriously due to a falsely low userbase.

    However, on the flip side, pretending to be on Windows helps reduce my web fingerprint. What are your thoughts on this?

    Screenshot tool for GNOME + Wayland

    Can you recommend me a tool compatible with GNOME and Wayland, that allows taking screenshots with on-the-fly editing features like drawing or blurring?

    Flameshot worked well on X11, but unfortunately, it lacks Wayland support. ShareX was a great tool on Windows; now I'm looking for something similar for Wayland.

    1. Meta/Facebook has a horrific track record on human rights: - https://www.amnesty.org.uk/press-releases/ethiopia-facebook-algorithms-contributed-human-rights-abuses-against-tigrayans - https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/dec/06/rohingya-sue-facebook-myanmar-genocide-us-uk-legal-action-so...

    Meta just announced that they are trying to integrate Threads with ActivityPub (Mastodon, Lemmy, etc.). We need to defederate them if we want to avoid them pushing their crap into fediverse.

    If you're a server admin, please defederate Meta's domain "threads.net"

    If you don't run your own server, please ask your server admin to defederate "threads.net".

    Voice Assistant HTTP gate

    Hi, I have an AI backend ready to go, so I'm looking for an Android app that will be the implementation of the Android voice assistant and be able to convert my speech to text and send that text via HTTP request to a specific URL (my backend). Then read the response text, convert it to speech and say it.

    I know that something like it is possible with the Tasker app, but it is paid and closed-source.

    Thank you all in advance for your responses :)

    Can I use two different drives?

    I am building a NAS in RAID 1 (Mirror) mode. Should I buy 2 of the same drive from the same manufacturer? or does it not matter so much?
