Powered flight was fifty years away from about the ninth century onward. Until 1903. After that it was trivial.

They've turned down every ceasefire proposal so far, but eventually they'll have to accept one. Israel is not going to go home when there are still over a hundred hostages in Gaza.

If Israel were interested in wiping out gaza, how the death toll would be in the hundreds of thousands or millions, which would be consistent with other world conflicts.

Clearly hamas infrastructure still exists, if they are releasing highly produced videos of hostages to torment their families.

Palestinian prime minister submits government’s resignation, a move that could open door to reforms (apnews.com)

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Palestinian prime minister announced the resignation of his government on Monday, paving the way for a shake-up in the Palestinian Authority, which the U.S. hopes will eventually take on a role in postwar Gaza....

Is it naive to think that this could be the first step toward the first Palestinian elections in decades? Abbas is in the 20th year of his 4 year term.

If this disaster were the result of corporate negligence, it would be universally decried.

But since it is a deliberate environmental catastrophe, some of the loudest voices will hail it as a triumph of resistance against colonist empire. Smh

Here's a serious question: should we be bracing for a massive influx of stock bros after reddit inevitably find some pretext to shut down wallstreetbets?

yes, and then the human beings who created the prompt will use their human discernment to decide if it's worth sharing with other humans, who will then use their human judgement to approve or disapprove, remix or re-share it.

There's a little old lady near where I used to live who drives up and down the country roads in her government-provided electric wheelchair every day. Everyone knows her.

On the one hand I think, "you go, girl!" but on the other hand, I feel like her life would be a lot easier if this town were more walkable/bikeable. She can't walk to ride a bike but what a great benefit it would be for her to live in a place like that.

Yes. If you do a search on this site for posts about google, you'll find multiple threads about this. Basically it seems that google is losing the arms race against SEO, and new LLM bots are mostly responsible.

Yes, there's a great article I read a while back about how and why recipe web sites became so bad and frustrating. Basically, a good website would show you the recipe, you would read it and leave. However, since you didn't spend much time on the site, google would rank it much lower.

On the other hand, if you encountered a long rambling story that you had to read through and scroll through ads, before getting to the useful information, then google would rank the site higher because you spent more time on it. That's why there are so many memes about how bad recipe website are.

And of course, even before LLMs, it was trivial to implement a copy paste bot to create a massive number of web sites.

I'm interested in exploring the world of self hosting, but most of the information that I find is incredibly detailed and specific, such as what type of CPU performs better, etc. What I'm really looking for is an extremely basic square 1 guide. I know basically nothing about networking, I don't really know any coding, but it...

gedaliyah OP ,
@gedaliyah@lemmy.world avatar

That's a recommendation that I've seen a couple of times, and it looks promising. However I haven't found any guide that really explains how to do it step by step, or what factors I should consider, or even really what I need to be able to do it. Do you know if there is such a guide for someone who really isn't a "computer guy?"

gedaliyah OP ,
@gedaliyah@lemmy.world avatar

A: I found what looks like a pretty good guide here https://piped.video/watch?v=xBIowQ0WaR8

It covers setting up a virtual server on AWS, as well as Setting up a Linux server with Docker and FileCloud or Netxcloud. It discusses some of the pros and cons of each. The only coding involved here is some copying and pasting json files, which is pretty beginner friendly if you ask me.

What you you folks here think? Is this a reasonable guide? Do you see any red flags or major oversights that beginner should know?

    BMG has said it's false. More than a dozen of the largest Jewish organizations around the world called attention to his insensitive acts (such as wearing a Nazi uniform on stage).

    The gray zone is characterized by Wikipedia as "misleading reporting, and sympathetic coverage of authoritarian regimes.” It regularly shills for Putin and Trump. They run cover for human rights violations in China, Iran, Sudan, Syria, etc.

    My question as a total luddite is whether or not it will be possible for Chromium based browsers to maintain a version without this. I use Firefox on all my devices so it's not an issue, but I'm curious about other popular browsers, especially those like DDG or brave that emphasize privacy.

    Eternity is the best for me. It is super configurable, and it is just so snappy with everything. The menus are well organized and everything is the right number of clicks away. It's not the most beautiful, but I keep coming back to it when I try others.

    The main thing that it's missing is a set of mod tools, which hopefully are coming soon.

    For moderating and other advanced features, Alexandrite is the best! As a web UI, it is device and platform agnostic, and the developer sheodox is very responsive. It looks great and has a few customizations like adjusting the colors.

    The codeberg has pretty regular commits for a project of this size. Looks like its mostly focused on translations, which seems reasonable given that its core features run so well.

    What can you get to within a 15-minute walk of your house?

    A recent YouGov survey asked Americans what they think they should be able to get to within a 15-minute walk of their house.

    Of these choices, I can currently walk to all of them from my apartment, aside from a university (no biggie, I'm not currently studying, although there is a Tafe within walking distance), a hospital, and a sports arena.

    How many can you get to with a 15 minute walk from your house?

    Do people really use the post office or bank that often? If I'm walking into either of those, odds are something has gone catastrophically wrong that day.

    gedaliyah ,
    @gedaliyah@lemmy.world avatar

    Those are some if the examples I expected to see higher of course!

    It's not that easy for me to imagine a city with enough hospitals and universities that no one lives more than a 15 minute walk away. But I can certainly imagine if that included emergency clinics and libraries/colleges.

    A patch is not a religious obligation. If it were a kippah it'd be different.

    People should be allowed their religious freedom, but that doesn't mean decorating their uniform however they want.

    gedaliyah ,
    @gedaliyah@lemmy.world avatar

    What part of a police officer's job is made impossible by wearing a scarf or a hat?

    The government should not be forbidding anyone's religious practice. That being said, a patch on a uniform is not a religious obligation. Totally different category from a kippah, hijab, turban, ash, bindi, etc.

    Spotify just changed their TOS, giving them unprecedented rights to create "derivative works" from audiobooks (storyfair.net)

    They frame it as though it's for user content, more likely it's to train AI, but in fact it gives them the right to do almost anything they want - up to (but not including) stealing the content outright.

    gedaliyah OP ,
    @gedaliyah@lemmy.world avatar

    Likely. They want something for nothing - free translation without paying a translator, licensing an official translation, paying a voice actor, etc. If the TOS only said that it would already be extremely problematic.

    In fact the language is so much more broad than that.

    gedaliyah OP ,
    @gedaliyah@lemmy.world avatar

    That's fair, and I have no problem with authors employing machine translation in order to translate their works. However, I happen to think that that should be the writer's decision.

    Most authors would much rather employ a professional translator to get it right instead of a computer to approximate it. He

    This is exactly why we should be encouraging local libraries, universities, law enforcement, city, and county governments how to set up Mastodon servers.

    On the one hand, when you have a duty to inform the public, it no longer makes sense to suffer at the whims of tech billionaires. There was a time, for a decade or two, when these sites prioritized access and predictability, but no more. When you have information that you need to have accessible, the only guarantee is to control it yourself. They can still use corporate social media to get the message out to their network, but link it back to their mastodon account. Roll it into their IT departments just like their email server.

    On the other hand, it's a critical step for the success of the fediverse. Universal email adoption came about because it was used by government and universities. What you could call the original social network is still an open protocol, it's not owned by any single corporation or government, and still the primary form of communication online. About 2 billion emails have been sent since you started reading this.
