Me when I see the youths posting online [Rule]
  • I already cringe at how I spoke a year or two ago (whenever pog was a thing) 👍

  • Do quicker digital releases hurt a movie's chances at the box office?
  • what are prices like across the pond?

  • rül
  • oh yeah that would make more sense

  • dude even I can't keep up anymore and I can't even legally vote yet

    shit evolves too fast

  • rül
  • lmao yeah

    I'm guessing that's some Irish dialect or somethin? (not Kimmy but how he speaks)

  • rül
  • the fuck is limmy

  • rül
  • what language is that on the bottom there

    took me a minute to read

  • Do quicker digital releases hurt a movie's chances at the box office?
  • ludicrous prices? the nicest Dolby cinema tickets at AMC are like ten bucks

    sure you spend more on snacks but you can also just not

  • Is it even possible to protect yourself from fingerprinting?
  • my threat model isn't that extreme lol. just wanna do the best I can with a normal is and browser

  • Is it even possible to protect yourself from fingerprinting?
  • oddly enough, when i keep my default ua, it says one in 400 have the same one, but when i change it to chrome running on windows (first one on that website you shared) it says only one in 3000

    though i suppose this may be inaccurate because theres a good chance that firefox users are more likely to use this site than chrome users

    should i just keep it changed to chrome on windows or default?

  • Is it even possible to protect yourself from fingerprinting?

    Even though i have Proton VPN blocking trackers and use firefox with arkenfox EFF always says my browser has a unique fingerprint. Same with Mullvad browser and Tor. When I switched Tor to "Safer" it said near unique fingerprint, and only when i switched it to safest did it say i am protected from fingerprinting

    from my results id guess that it has no fingerprit thanks to no javascript, but 90% of websites are useless without js

    Sovcit is confused.
  • "which caused you to pay taxes, get tickets and every other act of treason that has happened to you. "

    bro is calling paying taxes treason

    my brother in christ these roads won't pay for themselves

  • Has anyone ever had a bot on a website answer their question?
  • see that's different. when it gives you options to choose from they can be decent

  • Has anyone ever had a bot on a website answer their question?
  • I've found just saying "give me a human" "person" "human operator" or something slang those lines usually gets me to one relatively quick

  • Has anyone ever had a bot on a website answer their question?
  • I suppeose yeah they could be useful for those people

  • Has anyone ever had a bot on a website answer their question?

    I think i did once, but this was honestly a question i could have found the answer to on their site i just didnt wanna look

    its always some vague bullshit that doesnt help

    dunno im just kinda mad that they shove this shit in your face, make it hard to get to a real person

    Android users, what's stopping you from switching to an iPhone?
  • no interest

    on my android, I can install any os I want, install apps from anywhere, not just the app store

    android gives me more options with hardware, from 200 to 2000 dollars

  • Gboard: Why do I get "didn't" when I swipe "don't"?
  • yeah same as Bert, i justo hold thre word when it shows up abovemy keyboard and a garbage bin shows up

  • My ISS is crumbling, is this common?
  • honestly I'd just say get replacement pieces from Lego super easy to do if you say that they broke or whatever. I got a buch (25 or so) bricks for free because all the brown bricks kept cracking when disassembling

  • Gboard: Why do I get "didn't" when I swipe "don't"?
  • the most annoying shit is when I type three letters that are almost a word (thw for example) and it decides "ah yes, let me correct this to THW"

    or maybe correct it to an actual word?

    thank god i can delete stuff from the autocorrect dictionary

  • Gboard: Why do I get "didn't" when I swipe "don't"?
  • dont didn't dont didn't

    dunno, works fine on heliboard, which is odd, because the glide typing library is extracted from gboard

  • How can Proton monitor the dark web for my SSN if ive never given it to them?

    Not sure if this is the right mag, but m/proton has very few members. lmk if i should move/delete this, thanks

    I'm on proton unlimited and I turned on Dark Web Monitoring. I figure since i use bitwarden for my password manager, i need to manually sync my passwords so proton can monitor for them. what about more important stuff like adresses, DOB, SSN, etc? proton says here that they can monitor for all that stuff, but how, if they dont have it?

    Privacy friendly art home alert system?

    Our garage flooded last night (not the first time) and so I want to install some water sensors in the garage and basement. There's dumb ones that look similar to a smoke detector, but all they do is make noise, which I'm willing to bet I won't hear since I can barely hear the smoke detector in the kitchen when I'm upstairs. thats why I want a smart system so it rings an alarm on my phone as well, though if there was something with like a repeater I could install upstairs that would work too. thanks all

    Any websites to help me find the genre of a song?

    If I just look up "what genre is _____" it'll be very broad like "edm" or "pop" but I'd like to know if this is house or techno or d&b etc so I can start narrowing down my tastes

    thanks guys

    edit: Rate Your Music seems to be what I was looking for

    Looking for a knife that flips open like a Milwaukee Fastback for under $100

    With the Milwaukee, you hold a button and flick your wrist to open/ close it. makes it easy to use with one hand. any knives with a regular blade that do this? thanks

    SOLVED: If I pay for Proton Unlimited, do I get unlimited aliases through SimpleLogin's API or only through Proton Pass

    I'm gonna be paying for Proton Unlimited soon, which gives me unlimited email aliases through Proton Pass. Currently, however, I use Bitwarden and a SimpleLogin API key to generate aliases. Does paying for Proton give me unlimited aliases through SimpleLogin since SL is owned by Proton?

    So if I learned to fucking read it says that Proton Unlimited includes a SL Premium subscription with unlimited aliases

    Can someone explain the "don't put all your eggs in one basket" argument to me?

    I'm (probably) switching to Proton Pass from Bitwarden because its easier to create email aliases (all in one instead of making an alias with SimpleLogin, then copying that to Bitwarden and making a password there) but I've heard people saying not to use Proton Pass to not "put all your eggs in one basket". Can someone explain what this means?

    Thought if there is a way to generate those aliases within Bitwarden (using Proton's alias not SimpleLogin's as I'm going to be paying for Proton Unlimited anyways, I don't wanna pay for SimpleLogin too) I'd appreciate it, as I prefer Bitwarden.

    Thank you all :)

    EDIT: I understand now. TL:DR: If one service dies you still have the other. Either way, turns out I can just grab my API Key from SimpleLogin and use it with Bitwarden, as thats what Proton uses anyways. Also the Proton Pass extension just shit itsself and I'm not a fan of Proton's UI so I will be sticking with Bitwarden.

    How realistic is Cocaine Bear?

    Realistically, that bear should have died pretty quick from the amount of coke it ingested right? Didn't the real one die in a few minutes?

    Fractional scaling help?

    Im on a Dell G5 15 laptop with a 1660ti. I set my built in monitor to 125%, and that looks fine, but for some reason my second monitor seems to be zoomed in a bunch, even though that is still at 100% I kinda need my laptop screen zoomed in since its so small, any advice? Pop!_OS LTS, dont remember version, but says "most recent"

    Occasional diagonal screen tearing?

    Running latest Pop!_OS on a Dell G5 5590 (i7 9th gen, 16Gb RAM, 1660ti mobile). Occasionally, I'll get a tear in the screen going from bot. left to up. right corner. I'm on latest driver as far as I can tell (Pop!_Shop shows both 470.199.02 and 545.29.06 as installed) any ideas? Tearing only happens on second monitor, not built in. It's some generic office monitor plugged in with HDMI (though I can't attest to the cables quality). I could use DP if that would help, but I dont want to spend money rn.
