I saw someone complaining this site was full of tankies.

What features are you looking for? If it’s just sending short messages and images person-to-person, matrix, xmpp and lots of other systems exist to do that.

For decades, people have thought of virtual reality as a place of infinite possibility, where any experience, possible or impossible, can be had, like in dreams. Leave it to the Zuck to turn it into a fucking cubicle farm.

OP sitting on five figures of credit card debt, six figures student loans, a car note and 30% increase in rent like “freedom, baby” ☠️

(I’m joking- obviously OP is 14 and gets his politics from his illiterate parents)

I do like the idea of these, but older core-i5s perform so much better than even the newest pentium/celery chips, and they’re often a lot cheaper. I got refurbed thin client machines with 6th-gen core-i5 cpus and 16GB RAM and 256GB NVMe included for $180 (and a Windows license, for those who like pain), those cpus bench 2-3x higher than the $165 H3+'s N6000 which doesn’t include RAM, NVMe or a power supply.

That said, the h3/h3+ probably use less power, and my refurbs only have a single GbE port, vs 2x2.5GbE in the odroids, so the odroids are good for a router/firewall.

I don’t see enough discussion about how much metadata these devices can gather about you. All the Oculus devices have cameras that scan your surroundings and watch your hands and body move, this new $1500 one also has cameras pointed at your face. The new controllers are full of cameras. They all have microphones. The ability to fingerprint you, scan your body and body movements, your face and facial movements, scan the inside of your house, listen in on you- if you’re paranoid about virtual assistants like Google/Nest/Alexa, this is many many times worse, and it’s a Zuck project, so already bent towards being shitty and exploitative. Fuck these things to hell.

You say that like it’s a fact, but autonomous vehicle companies rarely publish their crash data. Human drivers in the USA average 1.34 deaths per 100 million vehicles miles traveled:


Autonomous driving companies don’t publish this data, they operate in a handful of tiny geofenced areas with favorable conditions, and they still managed to kill that one lady with her bike.

The reality is, having either humans or machines operating multi-thousand-kilo vehicles for individual riders at high speeds on open courses shared with other traveling modes and in close proximity to vulnerable humans has always and will always be sheer insanity. Cities should drastically reduce car miles traveled and shift modes to busses, trains, bikes and walking. We shouldn’t be subsidizing autonomous cars or any other cars, not with fuel subsidies, highways, stroads, parking lots, ot any of the other massive giveaways that force people into cars.

Build mutual aid networks where you live. The chuds stacking guns and food buckets and expecting to survive alone will be the first ones rotating on a spit. Bonus: MA doubles as strike support for when you get sick of your boss.

Flow batteries seem like awesome tech. Fewer rare resources than lithium batteries, no fire/explosion risk, really long service life.

My kids get divided into two lines before they walk into school with their teachers, a boys line and a girls line. The reason for this is pretty innocuous - most classes are at least close to 50/50 boys/girls, two lines are easier to deal with than one, and it gives most people a fast way to sort themselves into two groups. But then that separation continues through the day- boys and girls stay in the groups that were formed at the beginning of the day when they go to recess, to lunch, when they pick playmates and group partners for gym and for class assignments. So, something that wasn’t intended to create a social structure helps to do so, and perpetuates and exacerbates the clues they already get from broader Western capitalist society that boys are over here doing boy things and girls are over there doing girl things. Setting aside the minority for whom just deciding which line they belong in is a trauma, why would we do this to any of our kids? We made a stupid division for a lazy reason, and now we’ve created an artificial division in society.

I want this too. Calibre hurts my eyeballs and soul, it’s so ugly and clunky.

Also saying nothing about google apps, facebook apps, which are just as invasive if not more

You know the crypto bros will find a way to make the working class make up their losses.

Talos, Fedora IoT, microsuse, flatcar. What features of coreos are you looking for?

Options for hosting game streaming on Linux?
I can use Steam Link, or Sunshine (https://github.com/loki-47-6F-64/sunshine), are there other options worth looking at? Windows users also have Parsec and Moonlight/Geforce Experince and probably more.
