Whatever you do, do not give your money to BetterHelp. They're a fucking scam.

From the title and picture, I thought this was some weird diss on the depicted Brother laser printer and stopped by to defend it. Fortunately it is, instead, tauting the superiority of Brother laser printers.

I own the depicted printer, or one very close to it, and it is a workhorse. Brother laser printers are the way.

None of that wimpy and watered-down regular bleach, though. Go for the liquid chlorine used in pools, it's typically about twice as strong. You can get it at Walmart (or Lowes} when it is in-season.

AtmaJnana ,

Hahaha. A rented Opel was what came to mind for me as well. Followed by Plymouth Crossfire and Chevy HHR.

AtmaJnana ,

I used to work with a Michael Hunt. Brilliant guy and normally pretty chill, but woe betide anyone shortening it to it's diminutive form. I accidentally called him Mike once and he literally never responded to me again.

AtmaJnana ,

Between this Anthem, Target, and OPM, it seems likely that most Americans have their SSN out there for criminals to buy.

AtmaJnana ,

Not a federal ID, but a federal standard for State IDs.
And not "only", but SocSec card is one of the several forms of ID you could use. Not required and not enough by itself.

AtmaJnana ,

This is obviously an attempt at a viral marketing campaign and lemmy is falling for it.

It does feel like that.

AtmaJnana ,

SPLITTERS!

AtmaJnana ,

It's the trolley problem. Save two crew members or this new guy? I think her only moral obligation would be to try to find a way to save the new guy as well as her crew. But I haven't seen the episode yet, so maybe it was more complicated than that.

Isnt NewPipe still making calls to YouTube from your IP? I think you'd need to also configure it to use an Invidious or Piped instance.

AtmaJnana ,

wow. Also veeeery different caliber of film.

Commiting felonies to antagonize a DOJ lawyer personally would be a whole different level of stupid.

AtmaJnana ,

NAL, but it would likely be enough for a felony obstruction of justice charge. Add to that, depending on specifics of Apple's legal response (and whether they throw the employee under the bus,) a CPAA charge for exceeding authorized access in a computer system.

The same Europe that is home to Orban and Vucic and Erdogan? Yeah, good thing you never elect right-wing ideologues with a penchant for authoritarianism.

US sues Apple for illegal monopoly over smartphones ( www.theverge.com )

The US Department of Justice and 16 state and district attorneys general accused Apple of operating an illegal monopoly in the smartphone market in a new antitrust lawsuit. The DOJ and states are accusing Apple of driving up prices for consumers and developers at the expense of making users more reliant on its iPhones.

AtmaJnana ,

I once got an Apple Watch as a bonus at work. Had to sell it to a buddy because I couldn't use it without an iPhone. So dumb.

It's Not Safe to Click Links on X ( lifehacker.com )

As noted by security researcher Will Dormann, some posts on X purport to lead to a legitimate website, but actually redirect somewhere else. In Dormann's example, an advertisement posted by a verified X user claims to lead to forbes.com. When Dormann clicks the link, however, it takes him to a different link to open a Telegram...

AtmaJnana ,

I have Nitter Redirect installed, but Nitter stopped working. So it just blackholes all X links. Some day I'll add them to my pihole, I guess.

AtmaJnana ,

Much of Appalachia is the same. If you don't talk like a redneck, you get picked on. The smart kids with social savvy will learn to code switch.

AtmaJnana ,

Nah, fuck off with your strawman. I was just describing the reality, not suggesting that it is any kind of solution. Holding them accountable would be great, but kids often don't have that option.

AtmaJnana ,

Lemmy is so fucking tankie that they even infest NCD.

AtmaJnana ,

I use a VPN back to my LAN, so my phone always uses my pihole for DNS.

AtmaJnana ,

Reading comprehension is important. As is a highschool level understanding of how our legal system works.

AtmaJnana ,

I have only ever heard it used this way to refer to "group therapy"

AtmaJnana ,

Which is why we should refer to them as "DMs" or "direct messages".

AtmaJnana , (edited )

Is there a community for funny comics? I need more humor in my life, not whatever this is.

edit: there is !humor

AtmaJnana ,

its pretty clear. You're conversing with a tankie.

AtmaJnana ,

Gotta love tankies unironically parroting Putin's disinformation.

AtmaJnana , (edited )

How am I to tell who is a tankie, vs a wumao, vs a Russian bot troll? It can be hard to tell who is commenting in good faith.

I'm kidding, of course. I just block them all. No one using these talking points is worth my time.

AtmaJnana ,

Lemmy now has export/import for settings, including blocklist.

AtmaJnana ,

As an outsider with a researcher PhD in the family, I suspect its an issue of how the institutions measure success. How many papers? How many cites? Other metrics might work, but probably not as broadly. I assume they will also care about the size of your staff, how much grant money you get, patents held, etc.

I suspect that, short of a Nobel prize, it is difficult to objectively measure how one is advancing scientific progress (without a PhD committee to evaluate it.)

AtmaJnana ,

Oooh, a lesson in not changing history from Mr. I'm My Own Grandpa! Let's get the hell out of here already! Screw history!

AtmaJnana ,

Let's get out of here! SCREW history!

AtmaJnana ,

More important question for me:

what is the oldest MacOS with xcode support (and therefore oldest I can run brew on)?

I keep meaning to figure this out.

AtmaJnana ,

Brother gang, rise up

AtmaJnana ,

You know, we also have a very sturdily built Brother sewing machine and I never noticed that they're the same company that made our printer.

AtmaJnana ,

What are you doing, step-printer!?

AtmaJnana ,

That reads like ChatGPT used reddit comments to flesh out the "article".

AtmaJnana , (edited )

So? He stays pretty busy with Solid / Inrupt and his other advocacy (e.g., the OP article...)

Perhaps he sees the personal blog format as a bit egotistical or otherwise not fit for purpose. Or perhaps he just isn't a naturally talented writer. Its not as if he's shy about sharing his thoughts outside that.

Also worth noting that he and Bruce Schneier, who is a much more prolific writer, share many of the same views and partner together at Inrupt.

Well-endowed women may have a higher risk of developing of breast cancer, or have larger tumors when it is discovered.

Something along those lines. I'm not a breastologist or anything. That's all I've got.
