Which bike? Salsa Warbird CF vs Canyon Grail CF SL 7?
  • I bought my wife a used rocky mountain solo and she loves it. Also got a lot of compliments this weekend from others that tried it out. It's a lesser known brand but I have no complaints about it so far.

  • Devs should not be "forced to run on a treadmill until their mental or physical health breaks", says publisher of Manor Lords, citing how gamers seem to be trained to expect endless content work now
  • It depends on the game. If I buy a game from a smaller publisher I expect it to be a complete work with full story line. Unfortunately... When I buy from a large publisher I expect to be getting a ¾ complete game that will give me expansion packs.

    This isn't the case with Nintendo games though. I feel like and Nintendo game is just done and any extras are... Extra.

  • What’s the worst piece of technology you’ve ever owned?
  • I should really get a laser printer but my need for 11x17 capacity kind of limits options. To be fair though, my brother small business type inkjet printer does pretty well! Ink costs suck but I don't want to commit seppuku after using it.

  • Vegans of Lemmy, would you eat lab-grown meat?
  • Personally I think it's still kind of gross. I wouldn't judge anyone else for eating it though. It's gotta be less harmful to the environment and animals than full strength meat. Right? It is less harmful isn't it? Guys?

  • Idaho bar celebrates "Heterosexual Awesomeness Month" with free beer for straight men
  • As a straight man, I feel like I've been represented plenty and still am in media. What exactly are you looking for that you aren't seeing? There are thousands of years of representation, still continuing to this day. Don't get me wrong, free beer is awesome but not sure why anyone feels unrepresented as a straight person.

  • Linux May Be the Best Way to Avoid the AI Nightmare
  • People may not want it but most don't know, care enough to adjust, or are just generally complacent. I mean, I DO care and find it hard to move to Linux due to lack of support for some of my work tasks.

  • Older kids book recommendations

    Anyone have suggestions for a 10 year old who likes comic mischief? He's a huge fan of diary of a wimpy kid series but his reading level has moved beyond that. He's also really enjoyed the wild robot series, Matilda, and the skunk and fox books.

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: thank you all for your great recommendations. I'm going to check them all out with him tonight!


    jellyfin + Xbox One playback issues

    I've set up a jellyfin server on a Windows desktop machine (yeah I know, not the best option). I think hardware server side is more than sufficient with i7 4790 3.6ghz, 3060ti, 32gb ram. For client I'm using Xbox One x with jellyfin client. The server is currently connected via WiFi. I'm getting playback stuttering after about 20 min or so of playback. I'm hoping to get some guidance for transcoding settings and general setup help.

    I don't think it's simply wifi causing the issue as the playback bar on Xbox shows the video is buffered for several minutes ahead of playback location.
