Why are FUTO apps is so heavy?
  • The only app in my opinion that has kind of reasonable size is their voice recognition, while it looks kind of ugly compared to Transcribro.

    I think an icon of a microphone for a STT app is much much much better than that UX disaster Transcribo is. lol

  • Why does lemmy.ml use the "ML" country code for Mali?
  • The .ml ccTLD was on a contract to a company called Freenom in the Netherlands until last year, then it went back to the Mali government. Freenom gave away domains for free until then. After the switch, the owners who didn't outright buy it lost their domains.

  • Forgot to pay my domain for a year and now I have to spend £2200 ($3000) if I want to get it back
  • I've been wanting a ccTLD domain that's unused for a few years. The registrar suspended the domain (required contacts not updated) and put up a standard suspended notice, but doesn't release the domain.

    I guess the owner is a domain squatter and keeps paying the bill, so the registrar keeps getting paid. Easy money

  • Tuskegee Syphilis Study - Wikipedia
  • Since you're so conflicted, how about next time, we test something incurable on you, without you knowing it? for SCIENCE, of course. I hope you keep that enthusiasm for science when we do tell you tho.

    Thank you for your service, in advance.

Garner said "I can't breathe" 11 times before dying. The man who filmed his death was poisoned in prison. > > Eric Garner (1970 - 2014) was a former horticulturist at the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, father of six, and grandfather of three. On July 17th, 2014, was approached by Justin D'Amico, a plainclothes officer, in front of a beauty supply store in Tompkinsville, Staten Island. D'Amico suspected Garner of selling loose cigarettes. > > Garner stated "Every time you see me, you want to mess with me. I'm tired of it. It stops today...I'm minding my business, officer, I'm minding my business. Please just leave me alone. I told you the last time, please just leave me alone." > > After refusing to be handcuffed, 29-year old officer Daniel Pantaleo put Garner in an ultimately fatal chokehold. Despite Garner stating "I can't breathe" eleven times before losing consciousness, the several officers on scene did not come to his aid. > > Ramsey Orta, a member of Copwatch, filmed the incident. Following a campaign of police harassment after the video went viral, he was arrested on weapons charges. > > Before being imprisoned in Rikers, Orta claims a cop told him he'd be better off killing himself before being jailed. While in prison, Orta was poisoned by prison staff and at one point only ate food that his wife brought him. In May 2020, Orta was released from Groveland Correctional Facility. > > Garner's death was protested internationally and became one of many police killings protested within the Black Lives Matter movement. Some perpetrators of violence against police have cited Garner's murder as a motive. > > A grand jury elected to not indict Pantaleo on December 3rd, 2014. After the decision, Garner's widow was asked whether she accepted Pantaleo's condolences. She replied: "Hell, no! The time for remorse would have been when my husband was yelling to breathe...No, I don't accept his apology. No, I could care less about his condolences...He's still working. He's still getting a paycheck. He's still feeding his kids, when my husband is six feet under and I'm looking for a way to feed my kids now." > > An NYPD disciplinary hearing regarding Pantaleo's treatment of Garner was held in the summer of 2019, and Pantaleo was fired on August 19th, more than five years after the murder took place. > > --- > - Date: 2014-07-17 > - Learn More: www.blackpast.org, en.wikipedia.org, www.vanityfair.com. > - Tags: #Protests. > - Source: www.apeoplescalendar.org

    Simply Translate gives garbage output; Lingva craps out and gives no information, often on bulky content. Translation FEs should translate text in small pieces.
  • So if there is a volume limitation, the front-end should be smart enough to split the content into pieces, translate the pieces separately, and reassemble. In fact that should be done anyway for privacy, to disassociate pieces of text from each other

    They're both opensource afaik, so have a go at it.

    Alternatively (and probably better), would be to have a front-end for the front-ends. Something that gives a different paragraph to several different Lingva/ST instances and reassembles the results. This would (perhaps?) link a different IP to each piece assuming the front-ends also proxy (not sure if that’s the case).

    Sure, would love to see your project on this. Thanks in advance. Any ETA?

  • Firefox enables user tracking
  • yea. but they get to claim like they fund the opensource world. like come on… stop posting fake funding claims on an anonymous forum and hire yourself a developer team if you're so invested in this.

    But whaa… developers salary aren't funded by your $2 dollar donations, even with 100s of donations. oh geez… who woulda thought.

  • This is why the world hates you. "Funding a genocide" is nothing more than few problems?

    As long as you get your guy elected, funding a genocide is a cursory problem.

    Despicable human beings to the core.

  • Microsoft is reportedly banning Palestinians in the U.S. for life for calling relatives in Gaza
  • they can adjust their own algorithms to show things that can sway the minds of people too young to think critically

    Ironic. You're literally commenting on companies adjusting their algorithm to create a narrative and censor something your government doesn't like.

    Think critically next time. You're not smart as you think you are.

  • Microsoft is reportedly banning Palestinians in the U.S. for life for calling relatives in Gaza
  • We help our allies and protect democracy in the region.

    LMAO. Your military protects interests of the billionaires and their economy. It has fuck all to do about democracy.

    But keep guzzling whatever you already are, those braincells aren't going to repeat propaganda by itself.

  • Microsoft is reportedly banning Palestinians in the U.S. for life for calling relatives in Gaza
  • Hahaha. First of all this is old

    wow what an attitude. everything will get old, so you're fine with your sides atrocities cuz they're "old" but it's just not acceptable with others. Hahaha, suddenly a saint of peace, eh?

    It more seems like you'll be fine by no matter what your side does, and will have deflections lined up with propaganda but are gonna have a meltdown when it's the other side doing what you fuckers do without consequences.

    Attitude like yours is why there'll never be peace.

  • Redheads Endure Pain Better Than Others, Research Reveals
  • I think you're on to something. We should be using a few lines of redheads at the front lines of the protest for a solid defence. We need people who can still operate normally with all that mace, tear gas, and batons going off.

    We'll call them "Shields of Brutality"

[Wikipedia] > > --- > On this day in 1943, the Zoot Suit Riots began when thousands of white American servicemen in California began indiscriminately attacking people (mostly Latinos) wearing Zoot Suits, which were seen as unpatriotic. The suits were ostensibly seen as unpatriotic due to wartime rations, although they were also racialized, with L.A. Councilman Norris Nelson stating "the zoot suit has become a badge of hoodlumism". > > The riots began on the night of June 3rd when ~12 sailors and a group of young Mexicans in zoot suits began fighting. The LAPD responded to the incident "seeking to clean up Main Street from what they viewed as the loathsome influence of pachuco gangs", according to historian Luis Alvarez. The police arrested the sailors and not the Mexicans. > > The next day, 200 sailors headed for East Los Angeles, a Mexican-American part of town, and attacked and stripped everyone they came across who were wearing zoot suits. Local press heralded the violence as cleaning up the town, and soon thousands of sailors joined the riot. Journalist Carey McWilliams described what happened like this: > > "Marching through the streets of downtown Los Angeles, a mob of several thousand soldiers, sailors, and civilians, proceeded to beat up every zoot suiter they could find. Pushing its way into the important motion picture theaters, the mob ordered the management to turn on the house lights and then ran up and down the aisles dragging Mexicans out of their seats. Streetcars were halted while Mexicans, and some Filipinos and Negroes, were jerked from their seats, pushed into the streets and beaten with a sadistic frenzy." > > The L.A. City Council approved a resolution criminalizing zoot suits, although the ordinance was not signed into law. The Navy and Marine Corps Staff prohibited sailors from traveling to L.A. in an effort to curb the violence, however they officially maintained that the men were acting in self-defense. > > --- > - Date: 1943-06-03 > - Learn More: en.wikipedia.org, libcom.org. > - Tags: #Riots. > - Source: www.apeoplescalendar.org
