I feel like his comment is just setting the stage for overturning Obergefell v. Hodges. We already know that they want it overturned so this is just groundwork for the day when that happens.

The incident in Chinatown was due to the fact that Waymo AI expects everything to follow the law. Therefore driving through a busy part of the city should be fine because the streets will be clear as pedestrians follow the law.

Was the Waymo AI wrong? No. Does it need to learn human behavior? You bet!

The cyclist was hit because the rider failed to follow the law and maintain a “safe clear distance” from the vehicle in front. It was literally a few feet behind the big truck. By the time the AI saw the cyclist it was too late, because nothing should have been that close to the truck.

The AI we have now is perfectly fine as long as every sentient creature out in public knows and follows the law. Therein lies the next part of AI training…

IIRC he was fighting “tooth & nail” to get out of the deal…until they made a request for some of his e-mails.

Suddenly he’s done fighting and carried through with the purchase.

(Sorry but I’m going into an appointment so no time to look up this new event…)

Please keep in mind that according to the Mayo Clinic a normal adult needs no more than 600 UI per day.

It’s not a water-soluble vitamin so you can take too much and cause harm.

Disclosure: I just looked this up yesterday after buying a Buy 1/Get 1 of 220 doses of 2000 UI vitamin D! I thought it was water-soluble, and I could just take it and excrete what my body didn’t need. I bought enough to kill myself, many times over…

Interesting report. Two concerning bits though:

No attempt was made to distinguish between vitamin D2 and D3 because there was not always a distinction in the literature. However, vitamin D2 is less effective at raising serum 25(OH)D concentrations than is vitamin D3 (13).

And that the group sizes (“n” values) top out in just one at 1653. The rest are usually under 20.

Which doesn’t matter in the slightest as my post was to simply make the OP aware that too much can be harmful.

Your post simply raises the bar on how much is too much, but doesn’t change the underlying point I was trying to make.

Thank you for posting that report!

First: Thanks for the great suggestions!

Second: Shop around folks! A quick search shows that these T’s go for around $5, but Amazon has them for almost double the price.

Third: If you have both minibyte can you confirm that the Bella Canvas has a shorter sleeve length than the Next Level? The pictures seems to show that but then again that depends on the model.

If you done mind one e question: Which one’s softer? Thank you!

I love my Epson EcoTank printer. $12/3oz. Ink is a fantastic bargain, and no chips to deal with as they’re just big, dumb, tanks.

So any RCS w/ Encryption that you see is referring to Google’s implementation that only runs on Google servers.

Drunemeton ,
@Drunemeton@lemmy.world avatar

I have no dog in this race.

That being said, I guess it’s that it belongs to Google, is therefore propriety, and they have a less than stellar record with honoring privacy and/or keeping projects going.

Add on that telecoms didn’t want RCS to have encryption, which is why the default standard doesn’t have it, and you have a clusterfuck of privacy concerns, longevity concerns, and licensing concerns.

Then there’s the abuse factor: https://www.theverge.com/2022/6/1/23150243/google-rcs-ads-india-spam-verified-business

X runs ‘timeline takeover’ ad promoting anti-trans film (techcrunch.com)

Thursday on X (Twitter), all users saw the same pinned topic under the “What’s happening?” sidebar. As part of a “timeline takeover” — which gives advertisers “priority access to logged-in users’ first impression of the day” — conservative media nonprofit PragerU is promoting the hashtag “#DETRANS” to...

If by “game world” you allow TRRPG’s then it’d be Golarion (Pathfinder 2e) and last nights game was “Case File #4” where a creepy leather bound book (the ‘Dark Archive’) keeps appearing and transporting us to various other places to fight undead.

#4 was an abandoned mansion overrun with undead that we needed to clean out. Fuck almighty almost every room was a combat session!

So to be teleported there I’d just run away. Even if I could find a suitable weapon I’d not survive more than one encounter. Not worth throwing away my actual life for some stupid book!

If by “horrors” you mean that damn book?

Then no, there’s eight (8) “Case Files” in total so we’re just halfway there.

Those seem to be the likely options, but I’ve zero idea if those will work.

100% correct! (Not that I’ve ever taken something just laying there that wasn’t mine.)

YSK: Keeping your accounts/online identity safe in the age of the fediverse/federated networks

As more people flock over to the fediverse from reddit, twitter and other centralised proprietary networks it is important that you keep your e-mail and other important accounts safe from hijacking attempts. Since anyone can simply spin up an instance and host users and communities it is important that you don’t divulge your...

Caution: The following requires that you have “Keychain” and “iCloud Mail” activated for your Apple ID, and are running iOS 15+, iPadOS 15+, and macOS Monterey+ on the applicable devices.

For macOS / iOS / iPadOS users you can use “Hide My Email” (aka “Sign in with Apple”) to have a randomly generated e-mail address used for sign-ups. Then you can have Keychain generate a random, strong, passcode for you to use on that particular website.

Note: If you see just an “e-mail” field on the sign-up page, and when you click in it you see a drop-down menu of your current Apple e-mail addresses, just scroll to the bottom of that list to get to “Hide My E-mail”.

After you’ve completed a sign-up on a website (not just federated, but any website) Apple will e-mail you the new e-mail address you generated and for which website is was used on. Store that in a safe place to easily keep track of what’s being used where. (You can also find them here: System > Apple ID > Hide My E-mail > Options…)

All of the above, the randomly generated e-mail addresses and passcodes for the websites, are automatically synced through iCloud to all of your devices signed into the account used to create them.

Note: The “Sign in with Apple” button is a bit weird. When you’ve used it on a website, then later go back and are asked to sign-in to your account, you’ll see the same “Sign in with Apple” button you saw originally. There’s no visual indicator on the page that you’ve used this feature before. It’s not until you select the button that the next screen will show you the e-mail address that was generated.

Soon kbin.social instance will be moved to the new infrastructure (using Docker on a kubernetes cluster). Which hopefully would fix all of those scalability issues we’re currently experiencing.

So it’s two-fold: the underlying technology and the amount of data it can handle.

Expect growing pains as they (the instances) find tech that works.

Great advice! It’s pretty easy to just double paste the URL into both spots.
