TIL that undefeated heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano’s punch was tested by Boxing Illustrated in 1963, and found to have more explosive energy than an armour piercing bullet.
  • Not that surprising when you think about it. Bullets operate on the principle of focusing force into an extremely small area, and armor piecing bullets just take that a step further by not deforming the moment they impact without adding any extra force. A heavy punch with the weight of an entire heavyweight behind it has so much more force than the few grams of mass a bullet has.

  • 'Who lives in a house like this?'
  • It's definitely a medical room like the other commentor said. Most likely for somebody with long term limited mobility. Everything they need within 5 minutes of slow moving. I've had relatives who would have lived in rooms like this if they could have.

  • 2024: The Year Linux Dethrones Windows on the Desktop – Are You Ready?
  • Yeah, honestly given the time this has been at play I’m surprised nobody has tried to do that type of full control integration besides Google. Given how well ChromeOS and especially Android worked as platforms why hasn’t… I don’t know, Valve? Adobe? Apple, even? tried to create a major desktop PC take on Linux that does have the type of support and sensible UX you want out of the box?

  • 2024: The Year Linux Dethrones Windows on the Desktop – Are You Ready?
  • I agree. However if you look through the other comments in here, you'll see a LOT more examples of stuff that fall into the "it just doesn't work" category instead. And most of them are a lot more obvious to casual / new users. Those would be the ones that really require priority if Linux is ever to become mainstream.

  • 2024: The Year Linux Dethrones Windows on the Desktop – Are You Ready?
  • Because, please don't make that recommendation to anybody else. Of all the places for somebody to start contributing to open source, linux is probably among the top in complexity. And if it's a new user, as per the original topic of this post, and they can't figure out their issue from the million guides online, you're just ensuring they make a speedy return to windows.

    1. someone complaining about something openly instead of using the proper channels

    I refer you back to my original statement. I was not asking how to do something. I was grousing that basic tasks are extremely user-unfriendly to configure. I've fixed it on my computer. That's not the topic under discussion.

    1. someone suggesting they use the proper channels

    What proper channels? We're in a post claiming it's the YOTLD again, because OP apparently doesn't realise it's been claimed every year for the last couple decades. I'm posting about why that's not gonna happen this year either.

    1. they denying that its an issue they can help fix but a general failing of the software/vendor (typical proprietary software-user behavior)

    I could fix it. However, I have no intention of opening a PR and spending what little free time I have contributing to open source (I'll contribute money, but not my time). Kudos to those who do write and maintain open source, but that's not for me.

    1. & 5.

    I think you can see how we've diverged into entirely different directions already.

  • NASA+ Streaming: NASA announces ad-free, no-cost streaming service granting access to their Emmy Award-winning live coverage and views into NASA’s missions through collections of original video series

    www.nasa.gov NASA Launches Beta Site; On-Demand Streaming, App Update Coming Soon - NASA

    NASA is elevating its digital platforms for the benefit of all by revamping its flagship and science websites, adding its first on-demand streaming service, and upgrading the NASA app. With these changes, everyone will have access to a new world of content from the space agency.

    NASA is elevating its digital platforms for the benefit of all by revamping its flagship and science websites, adding its first on-demand streaming service, and upgrading the NASA app. With these changes, everyone will have access to a new world of content from the space agency.

    “Our vision is to inspire humanity through a unified, world-class NASA web experience,” said Jeff Seaton, chief information officer at the agency’s headquarters in Washington. “NASA’s legacy footprint presents an opportunity to dramatically improve the user experience for the public we serve. Modernizing our main websites from a technology standpoint and streamlining how the public engages with our content online are critical first steps in making our agency’s information more accessible, discoverable, and secure.”

    This new web experience will serve as an ever-expanding yet consolidated homebase for information about the agency’s missions and research, climate data, Artemis updates, and more. The updated nasa.gov and science.nasa.gov websites will provide a connected, topic-driven experience, with a common search engine, integrated navigation, and optimized publishing capabilities in a modernized and secure set of web tools. NASA will continue to update and improve the beta site on a rolling-basis as it receives feedback from website visitors. Once fully launched, the online content from a selection of popular agency websites will be included within this new experience to ensure easier, integrated access to NASA information currently found across the agency’s many websites.

    Later this year, NASA also will launch its new streaming platform, NASA+., and upgrade the NASA app. Through the ad-free, no cost, and family-friendly streaming service, users will gain access to the agency’s Emmy Award-winning live coverage and views into NASA’s missions through collections of original video series, including a handful of new series launching with the streaming service.

    “We’re putting space on demand and at your fingertips with NASA’s new streaming platform,” said Marc Etkind, associate administrator, Office of Communications, NASA Headquarters. “Transforming our digital presence will help us better tell the stories of how NASA explores the unknown in air and space, inspires through discovery, and innovates for the benefit of humanity.”

    NASA+ will be available on most major platforms via the NASA App on iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices; streaming media players such as, Roku, Apple TV, and Fire TV; and on the web across desktop and mobile devices. Following the launch of all new digital platforms, NASA will continue to connect additional agency websites and multimedia libraries into this new experience to continually streamline all the information shared across its centers, missions, and programs. With an enhanced digital presence, NASA will share science, research, exploration, and innovation with the world through cohesive platforms.

    “From exoplanet research to better understanding Earth’s climate and the influence of the Sun on our planet along with exploration of the solar system, our new science and flagship websites, as well as forthcoming NASA+ videos, showcases our discovery programs in an interdisciplinary and crosscutting way, ultimately building stronger connections with our visitors and viewers,” said Nicky Fox, associate administrator, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters.

    Strange Ox Act 1 Easter Egg

    Still in Act 1, so no spoilers please.

    I found out that if you have the Idol of Silvanus in your inventory and transfer it between characters while in sight of the Strange Ox, the entire herd aggros and attacks you. Cue the speculation!

    Edit: Did some testing, apparently all the tieflings react the same way, so it's not some scripted event for the ox :(

    Are artificial gems as cheap as they say?

    I've been hearing for years that artificial gems (diamonds, rubies, moissanite, etc) cost a 'fraction' of the real thing. Is this true? If so, where can I as a consumer buy a handful of this stuff?

    Note that I don't want jewellery-grade gems, I realise that would cost a lot simply due to rejects and labour to cut / polish. I just want stuff I can mess around with for hobbies and crafts.

    Known issue? Multi-image posts only show one image

    Check https://pawb.social/post/2123853 which is a multi image post. Only the first image is shown in sync.

    Also, rice!

    Edit: This issue seems to be happening only in certain views. I can confirm this is happening in cards, and not in slides

    Is federation working correctly?

    The reason I asked is, I just noticed that I have zero posts in my feed from lemmy.world. I'm sorting by top (last 12 hours). Lemmy.world posts should be filling up half my feed, but there's absolutely nothing. Switching over to other accounts on other instances shows me expected results, it's just my monyet.cc account that's wonky.

    Edit: Also, is there a reason why c/meta can't be posted to? This is the sort of post that belongs exactly there.
