Space Battleship Yamato 2199 slaps so hard

The movie was a masterpiece already..

You might want to build one to keep the Floridians in

This is the sexiest plan 9 shot I've seen, insanely cool OS

Do you browse on this?

If we switched to eating billionaires instead of eating beef for one day that would solve world hunger indefinitely, food for thought

Switching over to a tiling windows manager has been really enjoyable. It feels like a futuristic paradigm shift

zcd ,

I haven't tried that exact set up myself but in hyprland the default tiling would have your Elden Ring on one half and your friends the other half. Then if you opened up discord it would split one of the halves in half again. If you wanted to have discord instead floating and over top of the stream you could do that, or send it to the next "desktop" over if you don't need to see it. You can customize each of the tiles however you like, border or no border, you can move them around..

Edit: hows it going? Everything working ok?

You may need to double check how grub is configured (set it to UEFI if necessary, legacy mode etc) and or updating it. You will want to update the firmware also and try setting grub at the top of the boot list

zcd ,

Oh no worries! Grub is the boot loader. So you turn on the computer and the firmware looks at its list of things to boot from. When you first installed manjaro it booted from the usb and let you install the OS while running off the usb. Usually you would have had to go into the firmware to adjust the boot priority list, and put usb on the top. Now you can go back in and look at that boot priority list again. Now what you're gonna look for is where manjaro installed grub you can make that the top priority so that next time you reboot it will choose grub, and grub will fire up your linux install. Also in that firmware menu you can look at the other boot options, for example if you have an HP laptop you're going to need to enable legacy booting because the default secure boot settings sometimes cause issues.

In high school I got my hands on an old Sun workstation with Solaris, and eventually after a week or so of compiling switched to Gentoo

I'm really digging the Linux content on Lemmy, it's already pretty lively

I always thought this one was wildly underrated

Feeling lost and with no direction, what skill should I learn?

Hi everyone. I am feeling like I've lost any direction after getting laid off earlier this year (was working as an analyst in telecom and very recently landed a much lower position in healthcare data entry due to necessity). I already have several hobbies but I am either burnt out on them or they have lost their luster (similar...

There are some great suggestions here already. In addition to creative stuff, I personally think it's super important to do something physical as well. I can't list all of the positive effects weightlifting has had on my life since I picked it up. I feel physically and mentally so much better in pretty much every way possible. If it interests you at all let me know I can give you some reading suggestions

The distance from picking up the guitar to being able to play music is so far that most people give up before making it through. Building muscle memory and being able to finger those chords without fat fingering the other strings takes longer than you expect. You're talking about trying to play a song when really you probably need a month on the open chords.

If you are over it then no shame in moving on. If you want to take one more crack at it you'll have to slow down and just hyper focus on the basics. Or try ukulele! Ukulele is awesome because the cords are a lot easier and you'll become a strumming master since you won't be concentrating so hard on the chords. And then later down the line it would give you a good foundation if you take a crack at guitar again

In my opinion there is no such thing as natural talent. There is only practice and muscle memory. Once you're up and running with robotic hands (Being able to play the chords without thinking about them, being able to strum a few patterns without thinking about them) It opens up the whole world of music and songs

zcd ,

Trade one of your guitars for ukulele ha

zcd ,

Yeah you explained it much better, They are so much fun! The five string banjo is also 4 strings when it comes to chords, a huge percentage of the skills you learn with these instruments translates to guitar

zcd ,

Hell yeah! Except the part about your relative, that's some bullshit

Financial media: There is a perfectly logical explanation ... random bullshit go!

"Felon" does not equal "bad"

It kinda sucks that Trump got convicted of 34 felonies because now I'm seeing so many people thinking felon = bad, when in fact convicted felons are disproportionately people of color who were convicted for things that shouldn't be crimes at all such as drugs, or based on the thinnest of evidence by strongly biased juries....

Trump giving felons a bad name, what a time

Tuberville’s Stupid Response to Trump Conviction: “This is a War” ( newrepublic.com )

“People in our caucus… to me, they’re not really taking this as serious as we should,” Tuberville said. “American people need to wake up. This is a war; this is a war on our Constitutional rights, our constitutional republic. This is not as much about Donald Trump as it is about the people in this country.”...

You want "More to do" then look no further than wizard! You're not a beginner anymore, you can handle the unlimited power! You can change your selections of spells each day, you have access to tools for any occasion. Ignore the direct damage spells, look at things that can change your party's fortune without allowing your enemies a chance to even roll a saving throw. Buff your meatshields (ahem, allies), solve any and all noncombat problems with arcane power. Use your creativity to drive your dm crazy!

zcd ,

If you look at the whole spell list it's kind of daunting. But you're starting off at level one I would assume, so you will only have a small portion of the low level spells to look at initially. It's super manageable If you think about it in small chunks, and you'll have lots of time to read through the higher level of spells and think about the ones you wanna learn once they are available when you level up. Healing... really? A wizard of your talents?

I just saw above you mentioned that you played wow. It's kind of the same thing, if you were to look at the endgame skill list of another class that you never played before it would be crazy. But when you start them off at level one there's just a few mechanics to learn and it's not overwhelming at all

It really does seem like 11 will be the shit-cherry on the shit-cake as far as user-hostile operating systems go. They are literally going to monitor every single thing the user does on their computer and monetize it. while shoving AI garbage down your throat.

Year of the linux desktop might not be a meme anymore, particularly since gaming works really well..

zcd ,

Personally I would say it is incredible nowadays! Boots up nearly instantly, no bloat, no corporation harvesting your data via telemetry or shoving AI up your ass, infinitely customizable, can run nearly any program, can run on any hardware, there are distros for grandma that are dead simple to use and bleeding edge minimalist distros that you can build from the ground up with innovative environments that can change the way you use your computer. I use arch btw

zcd ,

If you need any help getting set up the linux memes community is super helpful, heck drop me a line I can help

By Grabthar's hammer... what a movie!

Shouldn't that be considered a proceed of crime?

Presence of pee-tapes possibly pointless presently

Does that… Does that become public record? Asking for a friend

I believe Stormy explained it was sort of non-consent-y in the beginning and she just rolled with it
