Bella fell asleep on top of the warm dishwasher
  • Anecdotal, but my cat never jumped up on any counters or tables. She only stuck to the floor and any chairs we let her get on. Even at night as there way plenty of way to tell if she had been up there.

  • Hidden Photos available via USB
  • I know hidden is not encrypted, but the level things can be hidden can vary too. You can have parts of the filesystem that are not shown to the USB driver without additional authentication pretty easily.

  • Microsoft says it won't let you use Mail & Calendar app on Windows 11
  • Does anyone even use the Mail and Calendar app? Enterprises use Classic Outlook (which isn’t going anywhere) and anyone else either uses the browser based webmail for their service, or a third party like Thunderbird.

  • Hidden Photos available via USB
  • That makes sense but the one difference I see is the hidden/deleted folders are Face ID locked and you need to be present to access them at the time. Just having the passcode can get you in to the phone but not to those folders, yet all you need is the passcode for file system access.

    I’ll report it via the method you suggested too.

  • Hidden Photos available via USB

    Well this is interesting. I plugged my phone into my computer to pull some photos off of it and I just happen to start browsing it via Windows Explorer since the device shows up there. Imagine my surprise when I saw things that were in my Hidden folder show up clear as day. It seems that lock is only at an application level and just browsing the file system it’s there to see.

    Does anyone else experience something similar? Is there a note I missed that it’s still be available via other means?

    Family's Chicago property taxes increase 440%; small apartment complex in bankruptcy danger
  • Okay that’s just crazy. $17,000 on top of a state income tax for a 1-bedroom apartment. I’m in Texas and we have higher property taxes because of no state income tax, but even I’m only paying $12K a year and that’s on a half a million dollar 3 bedroom house. Not a tiny 1-bedroom apartment.

  • Sovcit doesn't understand.
  • I also read it as he wants them to hold on to his money, but he doesn’t want them having any access or knowledge of his money, lest they do something to it. It feels just crazy enough to be what they’re thinking.

  • The Death of Decentralized Email
  • You can’t successfully use an email server on a bare metal machine in your own Datacenter

    Calling complete BS on that. I work in a medium size company and we do just that. Don’t know what he’s thinking.

  • [Bug] Feed blur settings no longer per account

    In previous versions I could set the nsfw blur settings (Settings > Apperance > Blur NSFW) for my feed on a per account basis. This was good for having a nsfw and a sfw account that I could easily switch between. As of 2.12.4, it seems this setting is now global forcing me to have to switch it each time i switch accounts. This can also be problematic if i forget to re-enable the blur when switching back to my sfw account.


    See all communities on another instance?

    Is there any way to see a list of communities either on the instance you’re subscribed to, or better still a remote instance? I can go to Local and New posts to see what’s been posted, but that’s really about it. Even if there’s a way to see communities of an instance you have an account on, I wouldn’t want to sign up for multiple instances just to get a list on each one, then flip back to my main account to subscribe to them.


    Does different parts of the world use different standards for water pressure similar to voltages?

    In the US for example the standard is 110V for voltage and 80psi for water. In Europe, voltage is 220V, is water pressure different there too?


    Tourists (and tourism) are a good thing.

    Quite often you see people saying “tourists need to go home” or “we need less tourists” and there are some valid issues with how people can be, but overall, having tourists is a good thing. It shows that the middle class actually has means of traveling. It also tends to stimulate a local economy with additional revenue and can offset taxes for locals through hotel and other tourism fees. Those that do travel also tend to develop a broader world view then being in their own little sphere.

    A reduction in tourism means that only the rich will end up traveling, and everyone else will be stuck only in the place they’re born, relegated mainly to pictures and videos “of a far off land” and will foster deeper divides of “well that’s just them over there” instead of getting to experience it firsthand.

    Lemmy Support ramble81

    How quickly do changes get pushed to the ActivityPub protocol?

    Let’s say I hit submit on a post or reply, and then immediately notice a typo and edit it. Or I accidentally mis-swipe and downvote and then change it to an upvote.

    In both cases, do both actions immediately get posted to the feed, or does the Lemmy instance wait a minute and combine (or overwrite) the actions so that only a single action gets published?


    People who still wear masks (and aren't immunocompromised)...

    How long do you plan on wearing a mask for? Will it be for the rest of your life? What will change your view?

    This isn’t meant to be inflammatory. There’s someone at work who wears one everyday and I’m too afraid to ask them.

    Men who shave...

    How often do you shave? How long does it take you? How do you do it?

    Just curious as it feels like a chore for me. I usually do a with the grain shave with a safety razor and no product since I don’t have a lot of time and that gives the least irritation, but it’s not a close shave. I see guys that get stupid close shaves and I often wonder how much time they spend on it.


    What's with all the "weed" shops popping up?

    Driving around town I’ve noticed quite a few places in San Antonio are offering free weed and are now selling it. Did I miss something being passed? I thought only Delta-8 (and variants) were available and that THC was still banned. Was there a loophole discovered or will the city no longer prosecute?


    Tsukimichi English Dub Episode 7

    What happened to Monica Rial? She voiced Tomoe for all of the first season and the first six episodes of this season but episode 7 was someone completely different. Did she get sick or did something else happen? (Save past commentary I’m just curious in the current context)


    What is the best medium for transmitting sound?

    I know that sound doesn’t travel in a vacuum, you can hear it muddled in water, and different temperatures of air transmit better. But which is the “best”. Let’s say you had a speaker and a microphone in an enclosed case filled with whatever you wanted, which would be the best medium to ensure the best sound transmission?


    Crunchyroll / Funimation

    I’m sure this gets brought up every so often, but does anyone know the status of the merger? It went from “everything from Funimation is moving over!” to “we’re working on it”. It’s been quite a while now and there are still quite a few series I can only find on Funi. Generally they’re older series. I’m wondering if they’re having licensing issues moving things over. The really weird part is I see they’re still adding new content to Funi, a platform that was supposedly going away. I’m keeping my subscription until they’ve fully moved things over.


    What part of sunlight causes algae to grow?

    I’ve been trying different searches but everything I find just says “sunlight”. Since sunlight consists of multiple parts such as UV, Infrared and the normal visible spectrum, I’m curious which part is actually responsible for photosynthesis to occur? On that note, depending on what part of the light, would it still grow with an LED, black light, etc.?


    iOS App Store or Web App?

    Hey all, is there any advantage to getting Voyager via the App Store? I originally did that when setting up my phone but keep noticing it’s a version or two behind all the time. Is there any real advantages that getting it via the store offers in terms of functionality or performance?


    Download Video

    On iPhone, I know with an image, I just click the 3 dots, and select “save image”, however I can’t seem to do that for a mp4. I tried tapping (pauses the video) and long pressing (doesn’t do anything). Do you know how to save a video from Voyager?

    Edit: gifs are fine, it’s mp4s


    Determine Charging Speed

    Now that the 15 has USB-C, I’d like to see if it correctly supports USB-PD. Is there any way to tell the charging speed when you plug in your phone to charge? With my Android it would say “Charging Slowly”, “Charging” and “Charging Rapidly” or I could use some apps. I haven’t found anything with my iPhone though.


    Was there anyone who was force "immune"?

    Basically what the title says. There’s always discussions about someone being force sensitive and how they could use the force or not sensitive to it at all, but has anyone ever been completely immune to it? Like if Vader was doing a force choke and the person was just like “why are you holding your hand up like that? What are you trying to do?”


    How do you deal with...

    How do you deal with someone who has had something happen and they keep talking about "God's plan"? I have a friend who is going through some tough times and it looks like they won't be able to achieve what they wanted but keep placing it on God. I think it's a coping mechanism for them but it still is rubbing me wrong. I am trying to stay supportive which basically just entails me keeping my mouth shut.
