<0.3 percentage points looks like fluctuations to me. We had that a few times already. Wake me up when it’s a statistically significant change of about 1 percentage point or so.

Reminds me a bit of tripwire, I wonder if that could be integrated.


maybe you can use neovim or spacemacs then? It’s also pretty lightweight and they focus on customizability.


Please educate friends and artists about how you struggle with this. Not belittling or berating them, just telling them your way of life makes it hard to be connected to them. Maybe some will understand?


What can it do what vscode can’t do better?


Scrapping will probably be less harmful to the environment than if the thing actually sails, right?


A borderline creepy use of facial recognition technology in games or the next great innovation in parental controls?

How is it “great” relying on technical features instead of speaking to your kids about their media usage?


Everyone has trouble with Git, even Linus Torvalds himself.


Thanks for sharing stuff like this, this is awesome for teaching people!


I’m not going to do some CV in the elevator lol

I’m doing that just to assert dominance.


I would just have to make sure it says v5 on the box?

Been a while since I bought one of them but I think it’s on the label of the device, not the box. Could also be on the box.


The way redditors talk about Linux youd think the only games were Halo or Apex.

For them that might be true. There are people with a very narrow horizon which can’t do without some “essential” (to them) games.


If I increased my plan from 10 Mbps to 25 Mbps, do you think that’ll make a difference?

Yes, 10Mbps is pretty slow. I’d say the absolute minimum per person would be 10Mbit/s. With 15Mbit/s per person you’re on the safe side. So if you two can afford it, I’d suggest 50Mbit/s.

Congestion would certainly be better. But: if you download stuff, the client tries to maximise the bandwidth it downloads with, and if the router lets it (which it probably does, because it’s a shitty one without proper QoS), you’ll have high ping and/or buffer bloat again.

Try multiple of the tests for buffer bloat to see if you’re affected.

Since increasing costs an extra amount monthly, it might be cheaper to just buy a router that can set priority or limits or something?

Maybe, if you get a proper router with QoS (e.g. an EdgeRouter ER-X, costs around 60€) and a better access point. You can also get combined devices, look at the OpenWRT table of hardware with good specs supported by the current release to get a device which you can get firmware updates for in a few years.

The cheapest option which also works out of the box is probably a TP-Link Archer C7, but you have to watch out to get the v5 hardware revision. There you can easily set a QoS limit.

Set your internet speed as the median determined by several speedtests over the course of 1-2 days with 3 hours apart (so for example make a speedtest without any devices accessing the internet at 9am, 12am, 3pm, 6pm, 9pm) and set “high priority” to 90%, middle priority to 70% and low priority to 50%. If you give both your and your roommate’s gaming devices the “high priority”, both are able to utilise at most 90% of the internet speed but there’s always 10% headroom for the small packets to not be hold back by congestion as much. Other devices like smartphones should get a low or medium priority.

If you can run cables, by any means do that, because cables are always better than wifi.



Cool, I wanted to build something like that forever myself. I’m sad it has a worse usability than alternativeto.net and is written in JavaScript/nodeJS.


Linux is free. How would it get market share?

Not all Linux distributions are free. A market share can also be taken by a product which is free. It’s just a piece of the market.

You don’t count OS market share by the amount of money you spent for an OS (because then, MacOS would be free, since it’s technically given away bundled with Apple hardware) but by the number of installs.


the whole ideal behind PCMasterRace is exclusionary by default

I don’t get why they use a mainstream OS then. Damn peasants.



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.
