What do you think of this prediction?
  • Well, KDE Clipboard seems to make it easy enough for me for now, but perhaps I will set a compose key for it if required.

    My main problem tends to be forgetting to add it because I got too emersed in typing the comment.

    And it's kinda useless to add it after the fact, so most of the time, it works because I copy the license first.

    CC BY-NC-SA

  • DJI drone ban passes in U.S. House β€” 'Countering CCP Drones Act' would ban all DJI sales in U.S. if passed in Senate
  • Right. Because after you buy it, it is your drone made by DJI and not DJI's drone.

    Guess some of the laws still have their premises correct.

  • Don't make a mistake in choosing a distro
  • I just went "Shiit! Am I sitting on potential system breakage?" (because I don't remember doing any such intervention)
    But turns out it was just a conflicts with change.

    From what I know, pacman straight-up asks you what you want, in these cases. Sure, it's technically manual intervention, but for me, who scans over updated packages every-time, this is considered standard procedure.

    Manual intervention is when GRUB doesn't install properly using the suggested command and you have to learn where your distro places the boot image and configure stuff accordingly.

    Also, I don't have JDK so...

  • You ppl don't use auto archive/categorise/delete ?

  • Too many posers
  • As someone who uses a HPV Bike for commute, a bit of noise definitely makes it easier to get others to give way.

  • Wait, so all I had to do was disable my underclock and I would have gotten the same marginal perf gains that I got by upgrading both my CPU and GPU?

    Will Egosoft hire me if I offer to refactor their code into something multithread friendly?

  • What's the problem with some laughter.

    If there's nothing to laugh at, people usually pick a loner, harass them until they are angry/miserable and then laugh at them.


    I'd rather, they laugh at this, which might also throw a wrench in the works of companies trying to get data without sifting through it properly.

    Anti Commercial-AI license


    Wouldn't it be even more fun if the AI chatbot got trained on this and started spewing out Anti Commercial-AI license in their results?

  • DJI drone ban passes in U.S. House β€” 'Countering CCP Drones Act' would ban all DJI sales in U.S. if passed in Senate
  • Meaning, if you have it, you can do what you want other than (re)selling it?

  • What do you think of this prediction?
    1. The license is for the content of the post. Here, I put a separator.
    2. Valve has regional pricing, making some games cost a tenth of the price in some regions. GoG does not, so you pay the US price.
    • e.g. I bought X4 for ~4x the price of Average AAA console games.
    • Though, in case of X4, it seems to have a similar price on Steam, most games tend to be cheaper with regional pricing.

    And now I forgot to put a license on this one.

  • What do you think of this prediction?
  • How about "Customers in low income countries will pay the same full price for your game." as a pitch.


    Anti Commercial-AI license

  • Pter
  • Sounds like 4 dinosaurs

  • If it looks like duck and quacks like a duck...
  • Instructions unclear...

    Labelled US Government as a terrorism producing organisation.

  • What do you think of this prediction?
  • Yeah, I recently bought X4, which is so badly implemented (at least on Linux) that it gives the same FPS (in the 30s) on Low settings as it does on Ultra.

    I even went ahead and bought a new GPU just for that and hardly see a difference, even being suspicious of there being a miner in it.

    Fun game nonetheless.

  • What do you think of this prediction?
  • I'm waiting for BG3 to make a Linux thingy. Until then, it''s on the "maybe" list.

    If it's not native on Linux, it needs to be exceptionally good for me to buy it, considering GoG doesn't have regional pricing.

  • What do you think of this prediction?
  • Do you know one that runs great AND looks great

    If you make one, then I'll know one. ;)

  • What do you think of this prediction?
  • I haven't tried UE5

    Also, they changed their licence midway, so a little unsure about it rn.

  • Protect your PC
  • Not really.
    Microsoft won't explain further after "we end support".

    They are now the "Something went wrong" people.

  • What do you think of this prediction?
  • A nice word choice.
    I'm going to use it this way next time.

  • What do you think of this prediction?
  • Good news. Unreal Engine 4 is usable on Linux and works pretty well too.
    Learn some C++, get some ppl and make good games.

    Also, GoG means old games don't die. (well at least the non DRM ones)

    Came back to the game after a year or so, just to see this:

    !Shows how to opt-out

    At least they let us disagree to the ToC. Not sure if I can play the game after that though, since I just exited after clicking the disagree button.

    Also, at least they show us the changes on the top, so we know what happened.

    Can Tokodon connect to Lemmy server?

    Would it make sense to consider asking Tokodon to support connecting with Lemmy servers, or is there too big a difference between the APIs, requiring a separate application?
