The lawsuit filed Sunday in federal court in Texas, where Musk’s electric car firm is headquartered after moving from Palo Alto late last year, alleges the terminations violated federal WARN Act requirements that workers receive 60 days’ written notice before being let go in a mass layoff. Also, because the workers allegedly received no such notice, they are also owed 60 days’ pay by Tesla, the suit claimed.


Here are some of the things that you can do with Huginn:

  • Track the weather and get an email when it’s going to rain (or snow) tomorrow (“Don’t forget your umbrella!”)
  • List terms that you care about and receive email when their occurrence on Twitter changes. (For example, want to know when something interesting has happened in the world of Machine Learning? Huginn will watch the term “machine learning” on Twitter and tell you when there is a spike in discussion.)
  • Watch for air travel or shopping deals
  • Follow your project names on Twitter and get updates when people mention them
  • Scrape websites and receive email when they change
  • Connect to Adioso, HipChat, Growl, FTP, IMAP, Jabber, JIRA, MQTT, nextbus, Pushbullet, Pushover, RSS, Bash, Slack, StubHub, translation APIs, Twilio, Twitter, and Weibo, to name a few.
  • Send digest email with things that you care about at specific times during the day
  • Track counts of high frequency events and send an SMS within moments when they spike, such as the term “san francisco emergency”
  • Send and receive WebHooks
  • Run custom JavaScript or CoffeeScript functions
  • Track your location over time
  • Create Amazon Mechanical Turk workflows as the inputs, or outputs, of agents (the Amazon Turk Agent is called the “HumanTaskAgent”). For example: “Once a day, ask 5 people for a funny cat photo; send the results to 5 more people to be rated; send the top-rated photo to 5 people for a funny caption; send to 5 final people to rate for funniest caption; finally, post the best captioned photo on my blog.”


I am subbed to a channel and was able to comment just fine.


With the help of LD_PRELOAD, Symbiote will load before any other shared objects. That allows the malware to tamper with other library files loaded for an application. The image below shows a summary of all of the malware’s evasion techniques.


It could be, but if I put the mapping of UI-theme to code theme in JS then custom themes would require custom code on the frontend. My simple implementation for #1 only involves adding an ‘@import myhljstheme.css’ statement to the themes css. This makes themeing easier, but css is blissfully unaware of what happens in JavaScript land.


that’s what I was originally thinking, but the solutions arn’t really compatible with each-other. themers would import themes, but when we add the setting, you’d end up with two themes loaded, and there could be issues until themers remove the import =/

It would be less headache for everyone to decide on a comprehensive solution from the beginning =/


Its likely a known issue with nginx + docker.
When a docker container crashes it gets a new IP address, but nginx has cached the upstream hostname resolution as the old IP, so it thinks the upstream is gone.

Or it could be a million other issues, that’s just one that I run into a lot. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯




[RFC] How should code-highlighting themes be handled?
I'm working on adding highlighting to `code-blocks` on lemmy using [highlight.js](https://highlightjs.org/static/demo/), and am wondering exactly how to implement it. There are many code-themes that could be used Regarding which theme to use there are basically two different directions I could go: 1. Each lemmy-theme would have to explicitly declare an hljs theme to use. - PROS: - easy to use, users automatically get an appropriate code-theme for every ui-theme. - simple to implement (already done) - CONS: - theme-makers need to pick an appropriate theme - no user customizability, limited number of themes 2. Users can pick their preferred theme just like they pick a UI theme. - PROS: - Extreme customization, there are a buttload of themes, and users can pick any one! - CONS: - Users would **need** to pick an appropriate theme. It would use the "browser-default" (light/dark) until they pick one, and could look weird and be confusing until then - PITA to implement & requires back-end changes (wont see it for a while) Let me know what you think, or if you have another solution. I have solution #1 deployed on HeapOverflow.ml right now =] Here is the PR for those interested: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-ui/pull/663

Yes, it doesn’t have any method for distributed global consensus. Instead, everyone gets to decide what they think the “tip” should be. Signed commits can give you insight into what others think it should be, though.

If I fork bitcoin and and replace proof-of-work with signed blocks, I would argue that its still a blockchain, just not decentralized. This would still be useful because others could see if I tried to re-write history.

I think of a blockchain, simply as a chain of blocks where each block contains a hash of its contents + the previous blocks hash. So, their primary feature is being an append-only tamper-evident database.




Git essentially uses a “blockchain” to store commits =/


It requires a pre-release version of peertube, so you might start seeing some once that gets released fully.


yup, I suspect a lot of manufactures will have kits that look like this in a year.

Also, the design is really fast and efficient in terms of space and raw materials, so I suspect a lot of new printers take components from it, and wouldn’t be surprised if upside down becomes the new normal.



this instance may not be, but the fediverse is. that’s kinda the whole point.


Any sufficiently large group will contain a similar percentage of assholes as the general population (which is high).

This is basically “regression to the mean” / “law of large numbers” and its why I think its best not to identify with any group

[Suggestion] Configurable "default sort" for comments
I would also appreciate site-config options for comments and posts.

Anyone else have this problem or know a solution? My instance has almost no usage, and I'm using the version recommended in the docker instructions.

Why do mod-actions on other instances show up on my instance?
I get that "federated bans" were added recently, but it seems odd to show trolls getting banned from their home-instance on my instance. =/ thoughts?

Presumably it's the link to the comment/post on the instance it was made, but that's not always the case, so I'm a little confused =/

Post made to remote-community failed to federate.
the post was allegedly made to HeapOverflow, [but doesn't show up there](https://heapoverflow.ml/c/general_education) =/
