Answering fire with fire usually just results in the forest burning down.


Keyword extraction, AI summarization. Those phrases might get you started.


Isn’t capitalism the embodyment of a few bad actors versus masses of consumers, though?


From the book:

We are not a Linux clone, or POSIX-compliant, nor are we crazy scientists, who wish to redesign everything. Generally, we stick to well-tested and proven correct designs. If it ain’t broken don’t fix it.

That almost sounds sane! Refreshing to see a project which doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel.


I’m answering the quote you got from the article:

"[…] I don’t like making political statements. We are here to play football, and if we can’t even do that because we are making a statement and just saying normal things, like ‘no to discrimination’ or ‘no to racism’, and you cannot say that, then hey, then what?”


What is “normal” for you might be political for others. Harsh reality finally coming into contact with super rich football players?


Snap uses a server while flatpak just runs regular binaries in a sandboxed environment.



for six months

But will they feel happier a year later?


The power of open source! For many softwares, it’s not as easy to download older versions, I suppose.

Regarding that dialog: is there a bug report already? Maybe the devs don’t even know?



Then what really is ADHD and autism? There’s clearly people who are severely affected by symptoms described by these labels. Where do these symptoms come from?



I don’t have to buy Windows and deal with Microsoft licensing. Just had a one hour meeting discussing the differences between Microsoft 365 and Office 365.


There’s also Octave which I found quite nice especially in the visualisation department. For data science Jupyter Notebook is even better.


the init part of systemd was nice, if only it could be isolated… but it can’t

Which other “parts” of systemd are needed if you only needed the systemd init “part”?


minimal software once corrected to a reasonable extent becomes completely bug free. So softwares which update actually are inferior.

Please show me an example of a perfect software which does not have a single bug.


okay, then why is Signal “the best” as stated in the comment above mine? The shittiest argument is still better than none.


Linux is known for breaking compatibility with old games

Which ones exactly? I recently played the DOOM 3 Linux version and it worked after swapping out LibGL. If you ship Linux game with the Steam or a flatpak runtime they’ll probably run in 10 years still. Whereas you might already run into problems updating Windows 10 to 11…


That’ll be fun if we find out the same may be true for MERS, SARS and COVID…

Is it possible to use `nvme` to show the statistics as it seems to be an NVMe-attached drive? `nvme list` only shows me the disks not connected through the MegaRAID controller…

PSA: if you switched from Pulseaudio to Pipewire (or started to use Pipewire), change the resample quality to reduce audio distortion (e.g. crackling, hissing)
Why do they even include settings by default which introduce crackling and hissing noises? I found that even starting with `resample.quality = 7` I couldn't hear any difference, younger people (like teenagers) might be able to distinguish 8-9. Maybe use 8 as a default value?

OptaPlanner is a lightweight, embeddable planning engine. It enables everyday programmers to solve optimization problems efficiently. Constraints apply on plain domain objects and can call existing code. It is Object Oriented Programming (OOP) and Functional Programming (FP) friendly. There’s no need to input constraints as mathematical equations. OptaPlanner supports - Continuous planning to weekly publish the schedule, 3 weeks before execution - Non-disruptive replanning for changes to an already published schedule - Real-time planning to react on real-time disruptions in the plan within milliseconds - Overconstrained planning when there are too few resources to cover all the work - Pinning so the user is still in control over the schedule Under the hood, OptaPlanner combines sophisticated Artificial Intelligence optimization algorithms (such as Tabu Search, Simulated Annealing, Late Acceptance and other metaheuristics) with very efficient score calculation and other state-of-the-art constraint solving techniques for NP-complete or NP-hard problems.

I installed Steam as Flatpak. How to load existing library folder?
I have Steam, Steam (Native) and Steam in my launcher list. The latter seems to be the flatpak version. Even after I enabled the paths under "other files" in Flatseal, I can't access those paths when selecting a Library folder in Steam. ![/usr/local/games shown in Flatseal Files selection](https://feddit.de/pictrs/image/da99f303-d01e-4d98-9010-389bd34bc432.png) How do I access my "regular" Steam library in a non-default location with the Flatpak version of Steam?

PSA: LinkedIn just leaked my birthday (and it could leak yours)
Even though I set the visibility of my birthday to "Only you", people were messaged on my birthday that it occurred. ![screenshot of birthday setting](https://feddit.de/pictrs/image/e674a522-9851-40f2-900a-899599bf8b94.png) Keep in mind that even though [LinkedIn states that other people are not messaged when you set this to a private setting](https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/a550097?lang=en), they still are. Obviously another capitalist industrial shenanigan from one of our favourite data krakens, Microsoft.
