Never forget what they took from us...
  • Have you tried Triangle Strategy?

  • Nitish Kumar was the CM of Bihar for the 9th term, and this time, it will be his 10th term. He was also the longest serving CM. Biharis of Lemmy, what has this politician done for your people?

    I will not invalidate the mistreatment and hate towards Bihari people, and I think that it is a valid concern. But this isn't about that. The people of Bihar can, for all of eternity, curse and blame the rest of India for their poverty and downfall, but is it really the case?

    When the rest of India was against the faulty tax-distribution between states, because we object to our taxes going in the pockets of scummy politicians, but they keep getting to power, is that not a valid justification?

    The four-lane Sultanganj-Aguani Ghat bridge has collapsed twice in two year, and god-knows how many shitty infrastructure was built in Nitish Kumar's time? Or does no one keep track about such incidents, because the bridges are apparently not for them?

    Oh, and about education. Bihar is plagued with paper leaks for almost any exam that happens in that state. There's no good universities or industries in that pitiable state, and the youth are forced to migrate to other states, making it difficult for the natives to get job. But was that not their own fault? Why did they vote back Nitish Kumar again to power, knowing that their state is failing?

  • ARE TANKIES CONSPIRING TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BAD TIME ON LEMMY.ML?
  • Downvotes are for rule breaking content, not for covering your big feelings.

    You're wrong about that. There's the report button for that.

    By the way, I did not down-vote you, but about the criticism towards your work, yes, the info-graphics isn't well done, because you crammed all that in one single image. I was able to read it, but it was painful.

    Another concern is the small dataset. It is in two digits, which isn't a proper representation of the general consensus.

  • ARE TANKIES CONSPIRING TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BAD TIME ON LEMMY.ML?
  • lemmy.world has comments in their community, where they call for the nuking of developing countries, when they read news of social injustice. By that logic, their 'civilized' country should be nuked thrice, because cartoonishly evil, rich scumbags like Jeffrey Epstein and their associates still have a free pass for raping minors in their creepy sex-dungeons.

  • Chery confirmed Jaguar Land Rover will adopt Chinese E0X and M3X platforms
  • Platform, meaning the base plate which houses the battery, the types and the suspension? Jaguar, Land Rover and Range Rover is owned by Tata, and I heard that they were going to buy stakes from the parent company.

  • If AI can now speak Italian, it can certainly replace us...
  • Blud could've chosen Runic, Egyptian, Ancient Romanian used by Vlad the Impaler, Mesapotamian or even Harappan Indic. But Italian is it.

  • ARE TANKIES CONSPIRING TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BAD TIME ON LEMMY.ML?
  • It's a stacked/multi-level pie chart. If you read the single level, it highlights results for a single instance.

    The first level is the overall 'tankie' and 'non-tankie' percentage across every instances.

    The second level divides that between lemmy.ml and non-lemmy.ml instances, using color as an indication.

    The third level divides that between hexbear.net, lemmygrad.ml and other instances.

    Is the increasing wealth gap in India, that's worse than during British rule a sign of a second colonisation attempt by Gujarati billionaires?
  • Also add the apartheid in Mumbai towards Marathi natives and large-scale hording of Dalit lands in Mysuru.

    But nonetheless, what you're talking about is actually text-book capitalism - as is described by most communist writers.

    I'll recommend that you give the Das Capital manga a read. Or read the original, English translated version of it. It is a really hard book to read, but you'll understand as you go on, word-by-word, page-by-pqge.

  • TUXEDO on ARM is coming - TUXEDO Computers
  • Oh, cool. I've been planning to get a second-hand L14 Gen 1 with AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U, 16GB (2x8) SODIMM RAM and 512GB storage, although I do have a choice to pick a slightly expensive X390 with Intel Core i7-8665U, 16GB soldered RAM and 512GB storage.

    At least from my perspective, I could upgrade the L14 to 32GB and 1TB, but if I were to get the X390, I could use it as my main device to SSH through another second-hand ThinkCentre or a similar mini-PC.

    Since they're both imports from the USA, I wanted to avoid paying duty and tax by having it bought through a distant relative from the US. Only if there was a way to buy second-hand laptops from China to India.

  • TUXEDO on ARM is coming - TUXEDO Computers
  • What was the best Linux laptop you've had so far?

  • Is the increasing wealth gap in India, that's worse than during British rule a sign of a second colonisation attempt by Gujarati billionaires?
  • The terms OP has used is wrong, but the ground-reality is that Gujarati merchants are making a fooling of the naivety and illiteracy of lower-caste small-land owners from other parts of India, and bribing district commissioners.

  • Is the increasing wealth gap in India, that's worse than during British rule a sign of a second colonisation attempt by Gujarati billionaires?
  • The question you've asked makes use of wrong terms, if I had to be honest.

    Your question is loaded under the assumption that Gujarati billionaires are colonizers - but that is not what colonialism is. Gujarat is a state, formed after the breaking down of Bombay province into multiple other states, including Maharashtra and Karnataka.

    If you're talking about the hoarding of wealth, mostly by upper-caste/class Gujarati people (be it Parsi, Gujjar or Marwadi) who have formed the equivalent of chaebol, or what we call in Hindi as व्यावसायिक समूह (business groups), then it's crony capitalism, not colonial capitalism.

  • Thinkpads so hard to find in the refurbished market?
  • I wanted to get the P1/E1 Extreme, specifically the Gen 3 series laptops with either an i5 or i7, because their RAM and SSD can be upgraded in the future. Since I'll be building some Linux apps locally, it would be really handy for me in the future to move from 16 to 32GB, and about the storage, I'll move from 256GB to 1TB. I've tried looking for them, with or without the Linux-only, iGPU, RAM or SSD constraint - be it open box, used, renewed or refurbished. Couldn't find a lot of cheap options. So far, there's a Lenovo X13, but it won't be upgradable in the future.

  • FreeCAD gets a logo upgrade
  • Don't like the colors used - it should be brighter. But the design is quite nice.

  • Protestation
  • Cuz incest wincest.../s

  • Some interesting distributed networks (non-centrally controllable networks)
  • I kinda like urbit. No sure about the hyphanet.

  • Israel rescues four hostages in operation Palestinian officials say killed more than 200 people
  • How does being an atheist fix the issue of colonialism? The native Americans still have most of their land under the US government. The aboriginals still have their land under the Australian government. Same can be said about South America, where natives have no representation in politics.

  • Thinkpads so hard to find in the refurbished market?
  • My assumption was that if I get a iGPU variant, I could save some money, and also because I'll not be having to deal with the headache of having to configure Nvidia with non-free software. FHD because a 4k screen will probably use nore battery, and require more computational power.

    About the RAM, the X1 Carbon has soldered RAM, and I can only choose between 8 and 16GB. No OS, again for saving money. And finally i7 because older processors are a bit weak, so I wanted it to run for a long time.

    I also tried doing a vague search, eliminating most of my restrictions (except the iGPU requirement), but I could not find anything.

    Thinkpads so hard to find in the refurbished market?

    I've been trying to find P1/X1 Extreme (Gen 1/2/3) and X1 Carbon laptops (Gen 7/8) that come in the configuration of Intel 8th/9th/10th gen (newer is better) in i7, or the AMD Ryzen equivalent of it, 16/32GB of RAM, 512GB/1TB of storage space, FHD display and preferably 2xSODIMM, if possible. No dedicated GPU, because I'm not going to be playing games. Also, no operating system, because I'll be using Linux. So far, this effort hasn't been going well. What will improve the success rate for finding a refurbished/renewed device?

    The budget isn't finalized, but I've imagined it to be somewhere in the ₹30k-40k range. I'd prefer if it were in ₹20k-30k. Country is India, by the way, and I am open to getting them imported, as long as I can get it for cheap, and have it last for almost four years, and get parts readily available. I've tried looking in DesertCart and UBuy and they're expensive in both the sites. E-Bay does not have enough devices.

    Splitters!
  • RSP is a proper communist party, with it's root in the HSRA, the original revolutionary communist party in British India. Communist parties break away a lot, because they disagree with each other. Coming with names is hard, because they're already taken, so they have to use the word related to 'socialism'.

  • Is it just me, or was the opening song for God of High Season 1 not that great?

    I remember listening to Fly To High by Younha, and around that time, I started reading the manhwa and I was in love with it. And when I learnt about the anime becoming a reality, I was so excited about this song being used, or maybe something as good by her. Contradiction by Tyler Carter sounds like a repetitive rip-off of Camellia's glitch-hop. Similarly, other manhwa series like Solo Leveling or Tower of God have opening themes I just can't vibe with.

    TIL that the people living near to the Ram Jhanmabhoomi had their houses destroyed and were forcibly evicted.

    In all seriousness, please don't blame me for being ignorant - the current mainstream media is filled with the vilest, most vitriolic bullshit, so I've stopped watching the TV, and then there's hardly a few legitimate news sites with proper Atom/RSS support that I can keep track of.

    The BJP lost UP so bad, hahaha

    I am laughing my ass out, what a fucking embarrassment! Yogi should probably leave politics and open a monastery, or perhaps sell snake oil. I'm guessing that the "Ram rajya" was so unlivable that people felt the need to go back to "Goonda rajya" lololol.

    Cars @lemmy.ml velox_vulnus @lemmy.ml

    I'm kinda fascinated by the BMW E30, and I was wondering if there's any rally/hatchback car that looks similar?

    The BMW E30 is a coupe from the 1980s that I've been really interested in recently. However, since it is a coupe, I don't really like how it does not suit my vibe. I was wondering if there's a car similar to the E30, but with shorter tail, similar to muscle cars like the classic Mustang, or none of it, kinda like the Toyota AE86? I'd prefer to see one under BMW, but I am also okay with other brands, as long as they have the box-like body design, the circular lights and characteristic 80s vibe.

    ThinkPad @lemmy.ml velox_vulnus @lemmy.ml

    Has anyone tried working over a DIY ThinkPad next-gen mod project?

    What I mean is-

    • You probably have a dead, chonky Thinkpad
    • You use a pre-built x86_64/Arm/RISC-V SBC, or design entirely new motherboard around the case
    • Replace the ports with modern options
    • Use modern Li-ion batteries
    • Swap the display with newer matte IPS panels, or pOLED, etc

    Any one who has worked on a project like this?

    Do they sell laptops like these in 2024?

    I'm sick of my laptop breaking after just three years. I want a laptop that:

    • comes with a nice APU
    • does not have a dGPU
    • comes with a chonky thermal solution
    • has lots of battery juice
    • has lots of modern ports
    • is repairable
    • is rugged, bulky and thick
    • is equipped with a nice, thonky keyboard
    • isn't one of those stupid, low-quality "gAmIng lApTOp"

    So far, only the X220 and MNT Reform comes close to this description - the former is a really slow machine for today's time, and for some reason, still damn expensive. The latter is just too expensive to the point that I'll have to sell all eight kidneys in my family.

    Do they sell anything like this in today's time, with a reasonable price?

    PS. Thick is a strong requirement. I want a really nice cooling solution, plus it also serves it's purpose as a melee weapon to removed-slap those ultra-book trash-talkers.

    Is it not possible to bypass certain information through resist fingerprinting filter?

    I'm annoyed by the fact that using LibreWolf means that I lose on system theming and incorrect date and time on chat app.

    DarkReader is unreliable, slows down performance of the page, and messes up theming. This is hurting my productivity. Any way to by-pass these two information?

    Is it worth getting a refurbished Thinkpad T480 in 2024?

    It has similar spec to my current broken laptop. Instead of a i5, it comes with an i7 8550U, 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. It is a renewed product, by the way. And it goes for around ₹24,000. Honestly, I feel like it is too expensive, considering how there are better spec laptops available.

    Unable to find parts for my laptop, what do I do?

    My experience with Lenovo's support has been terrible. I'm looking for parts for my laptop, which is a Lenovo S540-15IWL (w/ MX 250).

    So far, I was able to procure a battery, thankful. But it looks like as if the previous technician did a really botched job with the repair, and now I'm going to have to change not just the bent metal bottom case (he did that, fucking donut), but also the palm-rest (brass screw holder plastic destroyed), keyboard (missing numpad key) and mouse (bottom screw holder destroyed, I think, that is why it is popping out).

    My speakers have also blown up, which was again the technician's fault - because it was working fine before. My matte LCD screen also has tints of red over the edge, thanks to the shitty technician, but I think it is probably a ribbon cable issue, and I can probably fix it by cleaning the ends of the ribbon? I don't know.

    Now, I am not able to find the mouse and the screw pack (yep, there's screws missing from the official Lenovo repair technician). Now, what do I do in this circumstances? There's also no "duplicate" parts available, in my country, by the way.
