I've used old.reddit for over 10 years but looking at it now I realize that I just never had a better alternative. The default Lemmy interface is so nice and clean that I'd never even think about switching again.

After boots on the ground comment, French PM doubles down: 'Putins troops are already in our country', pointing at Le Pen (www.lemonde.fr)

By raising for the first time the idea of sending troops to Ukraine, the French leader "has taken a further step toward belligerence," blasted his rival Marine Le Pen, of the far-right Rassemblement National (RN) party. She accused him of "posing an existential risk to 70 million French people, and more particularly to our armed...

Last I checked, the Russian army was about 200 kilometers away from the Moldovan border and it doesn't look like they'll get any closer soon.

I experienced that too and ended up just disabling the timed sleep mode. Not sure if it's actually related to KDE software or just a Linux bug in general though.

[Urgent] How do you know your computer or phone isn't spying on you ?

This maybe a dumb question but i became paranoid all of a sudden and wanted some answers because i can't find it anywhere else nor can i sleep without it. Like even if i did flash linux on a lets say amd laptop couldn't the chip itself be spying on me ? Also i understand bootloaders are stored or rom is there a way to know what...

and how it works for free?

That's what I've been wondering about huggingface in general. Their hosting costs must be massive.

As for HuggingChat, it's basically a LLM with web search capabilities. You can even choose the model that you want to use in the settings. Sort of like a more "open" Bing Chat or Gemini.

there’s no reason to believe they’ve lost many more than that

While I do believe the official numbers that the Ukrainian government has released, it's also important to note that these do not include military personnel that are missing in action. The actual number of dead is still unknown and likely will remain so until the war is over.

There are a bunch of alternatives like Tildes and Raddle, but they are tiny in comparison. Lemmy is the place to be if you want a reddit-style platform.

I always loved the one from the first Mafia. When you select the different options of the menu the camera will move through the room and focus on an item related to your selection. "Intro" for example moves to the projector, "Load Game" moves to the typewriter and "Free Ride" moves to the map. And "Credits" shows you a photo of the dev team dressed as gangsters lol

CoD: Black Ops with the title screen being a playable “level” is very cool

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. The fact that you can leave the chair in the menu, walk over to the PC and play two completely different games was absolutely crazy to me at the time. I don't think there's another menu that can beat this one.

Chat Control May Finally Be Dead: European Court Rules That Weakening Encryption Is Illegal (tuta.com)

The law allows recording of blood type among the DNA-related information that will be contained in a national database to be shared across agencies "to perform their functions and tasks."

That sounds even worse than what the title states.

Vietnam’s future identity cards will incorporate the functions of health insurance cards, social insurance books, driver's licenses, birth certificates, and marriage certificates, as defined by the amendment.

Imagine a single data breach eventually exposing all this information at once. What do you even do in this case, just assume a new identity?

I'm not saying I condone what he did, but I can understand it from his perspective. I'd probably do the same thing if there were a country responsible for ruining my life and health and I had the information to inflict some damage.

It's been happening for the better part of a decade though. And started probably much earlier than that, just not as blatant.

They fell for the Russian disinformation campaign trying to paint Navalny as a far right nationalist and proponent of the Ukraine invasion, even though he repeatedly voiced his disapproval in recent years.

Hubi ,
@Hubi@feddit.de avatar

In February 2022, Navalny compared the recognition of the Donetsk People's Republic and the Luhansk People's Republic by Russia to when Soviet leaders deployed troops to Afghanistan in 1979, describing both events as a distraction to the population from real issues. He said that he believes that while Putin will not allow Ukraine to develop, Russia will pay the same price, and that Putin needed to be removed to save Russia.

On 2 March 2022, Navalny urged Russian citizens to stage daily protests against Russia's invasion of Ukraine, saying Russia should not be a "nation of frightened people" and "cowards who pretend not to notice the aggressive war" launched by "our insane tsar".

If, to prevent war, we need to fill up the jails and police vans, we will fill up the jails and police vans. Everything has a price and now, in the spring of 2022, we should pay that price.
— Alexei Navalny

Navalny would've been the preferable candidate in every regard. The list of reasons is literally too long to be summarized by a single comment.

I can see how banning the Burkini in indoor pools makes sense from a hygienic perspective, but banning them on public beaches is just to take something enjoyable away from a specific group of people.

Hubi ,
@Hubi@feddit.de avatar

You usually use the public shower before entering the pool and wearing a burkini in there kinda defeats the point. For the same reason you're not allowed to wear anything other than regular swimwear.

The difference is that Linux generally adopts new technology because it enhances the user experience in some way, and not because it maximizes ad revenue and telemetry.

Starbreeze admits Payday 3 is massively underperforming (www.gamedeveloper.com)

Payday 3 launched for Windows PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X | S in September 2023 but has seemingly struggled to win over players. The title currently has a 'mixed' rating on Steam with over 36,000 user reviews, although the vast majority of recent reviews have been 'mostly negative.'...

I don't think that's what "mom would be sad" is implying here.

I've been an IT professional for 20 years now, but I've mainly dealt with Windows. I've worked with Linux servers through out the years, but never had Linux as a daily driver. And I decided it was time to change. I only had 2 requirements. One, I need to be able to use my Nvidia 3080 ti for local LLM and I need to be able to RDP...

From what I've read, I must be the luckiest person in the world. I've been on Linux for 10+ years and only ever had Nvidia hardware. I've never had any issues aside from the occasional Vsync annoyance.

Another Patient Recommendation: Saints Row IV (lemm.ee)

I want to make a case for Saints Row IV: it is my go-to relaxing game. I have it installed on my PS4. The game has a GTA-esque setting and gameplay style, but where GTA is a clever satire of the real world, SR IV doesn't concern itself with the limits of reality: in fact, You play as the President of the US (with super-powers)...

Hubi ,
@Hubi@feddit.de avatar

Saints Row 4 is the most fun I've had with a SR game. 2 and 3 were great in their own right, but 4 just nailed it. The movement and gameplay loop alone are fun enough to waste some very enjoyable hours.

I imagine it's a lot more expensive to manufacture than the angled front wheels, but those only worked on the old body styles.
