had the exact same thought.

If you wanted it to be unbiased, you wouldnt tell it its position in a lot of items.

Smokeless7048 ,

i absolutely love my Kobo Libra 2. I can connect to it via Usb C-C, and its fast without any of amazons BS

Smokeless7048 ,

I had trouble with a couple fan made books. Usually it comes from the .epub being set up improperly, so that the chapters are not set properly, causing it to reload the whole book every page turn.

Havn't run into it with any purchessed .epubs

Smokeless7048 ,

thats why i always use youtube by subscribed first, then only delve into regular front page if theres nothing interesting in my subscriptions

Smokeless7048 ,

Good! I hate how modern cars have so few buttons.

Smokeless7048 ,

just get a small laser printer. i got a Pantum Laser Printer, on sale, for like $40. Its on its 3rd refill after years and years of heavy printing for my wife while in school.

Smokeless7048 ,

Thanks for running this. I donated as long as i was able to, but had to stop recently due to my personal financial situation.

Smokeless7048 ,

still think its crazy that online match making is a paid service on consoles.

remember when microsoft tried to do the same with PCs?

Smokeless7048 ,

"who had sex with a minor" if only we hard a term for that...

Smokeless7048 ,

the same but opposite. YT pushes shorts to compete with Tiktok. Tiktok pushes longform content to compete with YT

Smokeless7048 ,

What do you mean? Wifi is already secured.

Smokeless7048 , (edited )

ahh, i see what you are saying. You aren't saying that WiFi is not secured, you are saying the security has been compromised.

Smokeless7048 ,

Yea, google has gotten worse, but not THAT bad.

Smokeless7048 ,

This really is amazing to see. It feels like just year when we were discussing 1, 2, or 10 qubits.

Are there any/many current uses for these quantum computers?

Smokeless7048 ,

From what i heard, even 1,000 qubits isn’t close to enough for modern passwords: www.nature.com/articles/d41586-023-00017-0

Smokeless7048 ,

I dont think that the only use of Quantum computers is password cracking, rather that one of the types of work loads thats much easier on a quantum computer.

Smokeless7048 ,

and the quality of a 4k DVD is really high, much higher than the downloaded copy likely is!

Smokeless7048 ,

Fingers Crossed.

I backed back on kickstarter, and still wanna play it.

Smokeless7048 ,

yea, i think thats just bots reposting the same comment.

Smokeless7048 ,

it sounds like microsoft’s own laptops dont implement the spec properly!

Smokeless7048 ,

Yea, but they sourced the parts from a vendor, and still didn’t make sure the vendor was properly following the spec.

Just goes to show how complicated it can be!

Smokeless7048 ,

Weird do you have a screen shot you can share? they look fine to me.

Could it be something withyour windows installation?

Smokeless7048 ,

Yea, i swapped to chrome when it was on the rise, and it was subsantially faster than firefox.

These days i find firefox as fast, or faster.

Smokeless7048 ,

Would you like to rewatch this video you already watched? i even removed the fact it has been previously played?

No? How about now? Or now?

Sometimes youtube’s recommendations are excellent, serving interesting woodworking or tech videos, other time it just shovels me the same drivel over and over.

Smokeless7048 ,

Yea, just tested it myself and i have the same problem. but not in choromium.

Weird!

Smokeless7048 ,

That was a great episode of 99PI. Would love the machine restored.

IIRC, It’s not so much that it made music, but that it would create loops through iteration to inspire people. He wanted it to make full busic but it was never close to that

Smokeless7048 ,

i mean, i can do all that via RCS.

So you are saying “apple has crippled my texting, but i blame anyone other than apple”. Half of the joke about the color of the bubbles is that the blue bubble people are either ignorant of or disregard the improvements in texting for the last decade.

Smokeless7048 ,

And it depends on the type of motion blur.

A sword moving quickly bluring is fine. The whole screen bluring usually isn’t.

Smokeless7048 ,

Weird, what you seem to call “cancel culture”, I would call “consequences for actions”

Smokeless7048 ,

Loved the comic, and loved S1! Can’t wait for S2

Smokeless7048 ,

i teleport to the world of Deep Rock Galactic.

If im in the inner colonies, im probobly fine. If im part of the DRG crew, im screwed.

Smokeless7048 ,

For sure, i live in canada, which has socilistic institutions (national healthcare, social security, ect)

I’m a huge fan of some socialism, but do NOT want to see full communism.

Smokeless7048 ,

Thats… the definition of a socialistic institute. Collective healthcare is socialistic, while for profit is capitalistic.

By your definition, the USSR was capitalistic, since they paid for everything through their taxes.

Smokeless7048 ,

i mean, USB 1 and 2 are just 4 conductors, so TRRS.

USB-C can have up to 20, so TRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRS

Smokeless7048 ,

Seems like a good way to get the “agent” to agree it’s in the wrong, and get 100% refund

Smokeless7048 ,

I mean, if you go to your credit card provider with a copy of the log with their rep, and the rep says “i authorize a refund”, you can atleast make the argument.

Any company scummy enough to trust an AI for this wouldnt give it the authority, though

Smokeless7048 ,

Yea, using their app online is worth $10 a year, but $40? For what’s basically a front end? They are out of their mind.

Do you know if you can export your podcasts from Pocket casts?

Smokeless7048 ,

Yea, I figured out how to export it, but it doesn export what episodes I’ve.listened to, so I have to go back through my lists and transfer that (I like listening to back catalogs of my favorite podcasts.

I actually paid for the lifetime app membership a long time ago, so luckily this won’t impact that, but not paying $40usd for just desktop use.

Does Antenna have a desktop app?

Smokeless7048 ,

Didn’t know that was a thing! Thanks for the link.

Smokeless7048 ,

and that will be when i unsubscribe.

need to finish off my backlog of shows there, or sail the seas!

Smokeless7048 ,

Frustrating how it seems impossible to have any stability.

When the fuck did a mobile hotspot become something you have to pay extra for?

It’s my goddamn motherfucking mobile data and MY PHONE. I should be able to use it however I want. My wifi went down because the greedy, cunt-faced shitbags at Comcast stole taxpayer subsidies to enrich themselves instead of actually providing the service we’re paying for. I tried to switch to a mobile hotspot and my phone...

Smokeless7048 ,

Or in Canada. We pay out the nose for our phone plans, but at least we can use our data however we want.

Smokeless7048 ,

always amazed by people who think “well, if we accept USB-C, we will never be able to have any future tech!” as if the regulation hasnt thought of that.

Smokeless7048 ,

That would be clause 9: “It is also necessary to provide the basis for adaptation to any future scientific and technological progress or market developments, which will be continuously monitored by the Commission”

Smokeless7048 ,

With all this talk about sync's pricing...

I think now is a great time to remind everyone, like sync’s developer, Lemmy’s developers need to be paid too! The amount of time all the devs put into making lemmy exist, in my opinion, should be worth some of your money. If you can afford it, donating to the people who develop lemmy and/or the people keeping your home...

Smokeless7048 ,

I agree that subscription fatigue is a huge thing, and I avoid services as a rule of thumb unless there are real reasons for the subscription, ie ongoing usage based costs.

That said, I view $2 a month as a reasonable subscription cost, and if Reddit had charged that I would have happily paid it to keep bacon reader. It’s only the one time payment cost that is very steep ($99).

I chip in $5/mo for lemmy.world to help pay to keep it ad free and running

Smokeless7048 ,

There is now a one time payment of $20 usd ($30 cad) to remove ads, an ongoing $20 cad a year subscription for ad free + additional services, or a one time, $99 usd payment for lifetime access to ad free + pro services.

So a nice selection!
