Yes, the linked article does have images of Normany, but this is clearly Holland

Maestro ,

I have it, but never had tje chance to play it sadly. It's still a great book to read though.

Maestro ,

Yeah, I wondered about the ninth kid and how (s)he's doing.

Unpacking Linux containers: understanding Docker and its alternatives ( optimizedbyotto.com )

🚀 Dive into the fascinating world of Linux containers! Most devs use #Docker or #Podman, but do you really understand what's happening under the hood? 🧐 Let's demystify #Linux #containers in simple, concrete terms. Just a 12-min read! 🕰️📖

The people saying that are just pushing some other product in you.

Do you often hear the ringing of switching power supplies and devices when you are in a quiet space?

I'm curious, how many people are aware of these sounds. I have designed, etched, and built my own switching power supplies along with winding my own transformers. I am aware of the source of the noise. So, does anyone else hear these high frequency sounds regularly?

Maestro ,

43 years old here. I can still hear it. I think I put about 10-15 chargers in the bin because of the noise. I also really hate those anti-mosquito ultrasone emittors people put in their yards. I can hear them whenever I walk around the neighborhood.

Maestro ,

Yup, I remember that 😄

Maestro ,

I just feed my cats wet food in the evening instead of in the morning. Problem solved!

Maestro ,

The petitions are for the universities, not starbucks. They may not scoff at 1500 signatures.

Been binge watching the Aliens, Predators, and the Aliens v. Predators movies lately (no spoilers)

Some are amazing like Alien, Aliens, and the first Predator. Some are pretty good modern takes like Aliens: Prometheus and Aliens: Covenant. The synth David played by Michael Fassbender is one of the most interesting and well acted characters on recent cinema. I'm definitely looking forward to some sort of sequel to Covenant....

Maestro ,

Meh, that is still a dub. I prefer the original English. I just really, really hate dubbing. I'm glad dubbing isn't a thing in my country outside of some children shows. It annoyse to no end when audio and image don't match.

Maestro ,

I have a small collection of Lego sets. I mainly collect the minifigure-scale Star Wars space ships (yes, I have the crazy big Millenium Falcon), but only original trilogy ships. My wife collects the big Lego Creator cars.

Why not allow anyone to see the votes? Anyone already can by using kbin or spinning up their own instance.

Home Assistant has a really good basic presence detection: wifi. If you phone is connected to your home wifi network, then you're home. Else you're away. Simple. Works. Local only. No extra sensors.

Maestro ,

I put a Shelly smart plug in my washing machine outlet. If it detects the machine using power for 30 seconds and then stop using power for 5 minutes, then it sends a signal to Home Assistant, and HA send a notification to my phone. It's easy.

Maestro ,

Home Assistant can do that. Put a Shelly smart plug in the stove outlet to see if it's using power (or do you have an old fasioned gas stove?). It can also track what time you turned off your lights last night.

Maestro ,

That's harder, but perhaps the new wifi 7 sensing can help in the near future.

Maestro ,

That just being human. It sucks but it's universal. Look at the police, politics (local and national), HOAs, churches, etc.

Maestro ,

It's not about clicks, it's about attribution. That is also why they all want to track you. It's not just about targeting ads. If you buy something in a webshop and the advertiser can show that you saw a (related) ad for that somewhere in the last X days/weeks then the sale is attributed to the advertiser and they get paid a fee. That is why they want to track anything and everything. The more data they collect, the higher the chance they can show attribution. No clicks required.

I'm currently playing V Rising with a friend on a private server. I like survival games but I hate PvP, raiding and griefers. So far it's pretty good fun! Like a mix between a Diablo-like ARPG and something like Valheim. You don't need to grind resources so much, you collect plenty just playing. The focus is more on combat. Some bosses are pretty tough and progress is gated behind them.

[not solved] I think I messed something up in the router settings but cannot understand what... now I have no internet connection

Hello! I (tried, at least) converted an old laptop to a Debian home server, and I was trying to set up duckdns.org and to enable port forwarding on my router. internet connection was working, I installed packages, docker, immich, etc, and then suddenly (I don't know exactly when) it refuses to connect to the internet. It does...

Maestro ,

My guess is that you have Docker configured incorrectly. Its internal IP range probably overlaps with your real network, so all requests are routed to Docker. Uninstall docker and reboot the server. If that works, reinstall docker and properly configure its internal networking.

Maestro ,

Companies want do downsize. They don't care. They think workers are like replacable cogs. They don't understand that the WFH people who are jumping ship are the productive ones with options, and the people who can't jump ship are the shitty ones.

Maestro ,

If you copy/pasted without any licensed then you've broken copyright yourself. It's a good way to get into trouble in a professional setting.

Maestro ,

It's what BlameThePeacock admitted to doing.

Maestro ,

Hollow Knight. I love that game but I am in my mid 40s and my reaction time isn't what it used to be. And it's not even the bosses. I just can't make it past the spike section where you have to air-dash all over the place and can't be a millimeter off or you die.

Maestro ,

I've just moved on to other games. I have a wife and a small kid. I can't afford to spend hours and hours stuck on a game.

Maestro ,

Exactly. Shitty mods have been a thing since newsgroups, AOL chatrooms and good old internet forums. Probably BBSes too.

Maestro ,

So, kbin? It can interact with both Lemmy and Mastodon at the same time. If you boost a lemmy post on kbin, you essentially retweet (retoot?) it to mastodon under the hashtags associated with the community.

Maestro ,

Forget the tatoos, is that a massive scar along his abdomen?

Maestro ,

Ark is total madness. Every map has a copy of every dinosaur. Not just the dinos for that map, but all dinos in the game. That's because you can transfer dinos, so somebody may transfer a dino to your map from a mao that you don't have the DLC for. And you still need to be able to see and interact with that dino.

I wonder if the new Ark Ascended fixed that.

Maestro ,

They probably tried and failed. IIRC the original Ark was build on a pre-release version of Unreal engine 4. There were probably loads of things missing or broken in that engine. When they couldn't make UE load assets from a shared storage location, it was probably just easier to ship all dinos with every map.

Maestro ,

Yeah, at that point they should issue you a work phone.
