Weird, it loads fine for me using uBlock with Kiwi on my Android phone.

What happened to the left one's eyes in panel 5?

I noticed it said "Moist" at the top left, perhaps it is https://moist.catsweat.com/ ?

Check out Zsh, Oh My Zsh!, and Powerlevel10K. Then add plugins from zsh-users for zsh-autosuggestions and zsh-syntax-highlighting. It's made using the terminal so much nicer for me.

Annoyingly similar buttons with very different functions ( lemmy.world )

One of the buttons laps the stopwatch, the other resets the entire session clearing all lap markers and stopping the counter. Better not forget which is which, especially given that you're probably timing something in the physical world not paying much attention to your phone...

runswithjedi ,

Yeah, the circular arrows convey 'reset' to me, but the stopwatch icon is ambiguous. Two buttons are visible inside the stopwatch icon, making it unclear what it will do. It should either use the word 'lap' or use a less ambiguous symbol like a checkered flag (finish line).

And I hope you're also changing your sink faucet aerators monthly too. And that's all sinks: kitchen, bathroom, etc.

Gov. Reeves proclaims Confederate Heritage Month in Mississippi ( www.mississippifreepress.org )

Mississippi Gov.

This is an excellent explainer of the mechanisms by which people have been limiting the 14th Amendment since it was passed right after the Civil War "ended". It's both a promising law and tragic how it's been abused.

Yeah, I had no idea until recently that Pogo is a misogynist and homophobe. He makes music videos from Disney movies ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Is there a more politically and ideologically diverse alternative for Lemmy?

I know the real answer is reddit but I really don't want to go back now that I've already grown used to life without it. I was hoping for Lemmy to be a viable substitute but it isn't. I can see how this place is wonderful for the certain type of person but that person is not me. My experience during the past 6+ months has been a...

Personally, I've found a fairly wide breadth of viewpoints on Lemmy. Perhaps what you're experiencing is the stress that diversity brings? It's a well-known effect of engaging with different viewpoints.

As my counselor keeps trying to get me to do: sit with your discomfort for a few minutes before reacting or taking any action. Think about your feelings and where they're coming from.

Social science research suggests that people tend to react with anger and irritation when confronted about their biases—particularly when those biases are accurately labeled as such. Although such interactions may be unpleasant, they also tend to lead to behavioral change, and so should be welcomed as opportunities for growth. Bias is a measurable condition, but it is not a permanent one, on either the individual or the organizational level. By acknowledging it we can counter it, expanding our pool of potential collaborators and improving financial performance.

Nice, thank you. I've never actually used IRC. It was a bit before my time and then chat clients like AOL got big before I had heard of IRC.

He must have forgotten about the massive amount of infrastructure required to even make his refusal to pay taxes possible. I suppose he would prefer to not be able to buy things?

I haven't seen those ads, what are they claiming?

People are capable of echolocation too. They must be Battleship masters.

Despite the limitations, Daniel Kish shows that his ‘FlashSonar’ is actually, in some cases, far more effective than the visual input that we receive. His method of echolocation grants him a three hundred and sixty degree view of his environment, with it working almost as well behind him as it does in front. He can ‘see’ around corners and the sound also works through surfaces- it is, in a way, almost like having X-Ray vision.

Stuff like this used to bother me too and I have gradually realized that Linux logs pretty much everything. It really will tell you exactly what's wrong if you know where to look.

Great idea. I'd gladly join in if they made a torrent.

Japanese indie dev tells randoms begging for keys and offering exposure to 'buy it, you piece of garbage' ( www.pcgamer.com )

In a recent FAQ spotted by Automaton, Housenka responded to a hypothetical of "I'll promote you, give me a Steam key" with a delightfully blunt: "Buy it, you piece of garbage." Or, as Automaton translates it from the original Japanese, "Buy the game, you piece of sh*t." I can't decide which I like better, honestly. The...

This is a great story. I kind of want to buy the game just to support them. Looks like there's a demo for Windows available. I'll check it out later.

Interesting, I like the concept of digital sovereignty. I didn't see anything about actually maintaining the software they use, though. Seems like that would be a good way to ensure success and they could influence the development to meet their needs.

Woah, that's astounding. I'm really impressed with this level of dedication. They've invested millions in FOSS projects!

They're even investing in ActivityPub. Thanks Germany! https://www.sovereigntechfund.de/tech/activitypub-test-suite

LLMs at their best: telling you exactly what you want to hear. They're scary good at that.

I remember reading this book as a kid about a post-apocalyptic world. In it, people found relief from these machines that would inject them with some sort of drug. The drug would cause them to have intense visualizations of whatever they wanted to see and they got to feel that experience for a limited time. Of course, it wouldn't last so people got addicted and wasted away.

It was an intense read for me at the time. I can't remember the name of the book and I'd love to read it again. There was something about a utopian city that the kid in the book was trying to get to, if that helps anyone identify it.

I found it! It's called The Last Book in the Universe. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/924194.The_Last_Book_in_the_Universe

This is the line that grabbed me.

Nobody around here reads anymore. Why bother, when you can just shoot all the images and excitement straight into your brain? I've heard of books, but they were long before I was born, in the backtimes before the Big Shake...

Additionally, the state argued that Ms. Wood’s identity itself was at odds with the state’s teachings on gender and sexuality, and thus she could be barred.

Wait, are trans people barred from working in Florida schools? Are they saying it's illegal to be trans??

I'm wondering the same thing. They don't mention how it functions besides some spoofing. Are they using the API or something else?

Cool, I played through a few months ago and it was really fun. The update looks really nice.

It may be a sentient scale, but I did set the units this time. I do have trouble turning it off. Sometimes the power button only resets the tare, like it doesn't want to be turned off.
