I use PictureThis: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cn.danatech.xingseus

No idea how it does it, but it's ridiculously good at identifying plants at any stage of growth, even without seeing what I would call identifying features.

Because their lawyers said so. Canonical is based in England so their lawyers didn't say so. I don't know where the Debian project is based. OpenSUSE is based in Germany so I'm not sure why they feel the need, but I assume that's what the lawyers said they need to do.

Right, life needs energy. On earth, that's most often from sunlight, but there are magma vent extremophiles using heat, and there are fungi that use nuclear radiation.

Why is folder sharing between host and guest in KVM so hard?

I'm having the hardest tine setting up a shared folder between a Linux host and Win11guest. I want to get rid of dual boot, but there are a few programs that I use which are Win only. I have set up a VB VM, but I want a fine tuned KVM VM. On VB sharing is trivial, but I can't get it to work in KVM. I have the host sharing the...

Sounds like a network issue, not a KVM issue. Have you done any troubleshooting from that angle, and if so, what have you found?

Hmm. I think the birds got to my flower seed. Now why didn't I think of just starting them inside?

'Vortex Cannon vs Drone' - Mark Rober shows off tech from a "defense technology company that specializes in advanced autonomous systems". That seems bad

I've enjoyed Mark Rober's videos for a while now. They are fun, touch on accessible topics, and have decent production value. But this recent video isn't sitting right with me...

It's a lot less portable, though.

Huh, only 10 kW? I thought it would be more. If it's got a big bed, you could put the generator right there too. I don't know how much electricity a consumer pickup engine provides, but it's probably not that much. A quick Google suggests consumer bed outlets are about 400 W.

How to make it so frequently used sites don't constantly require 2FA?

I know two factor authentication is considered more secure than just passwords, but here’s the deal: One of my family members uses Linux Mint on their laptop (at my recommendation and yes, they are aware that it’s not a Mac), and while they’ve mostly adapted to the different workflows (coming from a macbook), one of their...

Yes, stop shooting yourself in the foot and allow cookies at least for those sites.

catloaf ,

Does it have logs?

catloaf ,

I don't think postgres having fatal errors like that is normal. I'd check the user it's running as and the permissions on the files/directories/volumes.

‘He erased the entire project’ … the book Stanley Kubrick didn’t want anyone to read to be published ( www.theguardian.com )

Stanley Kubrick, the relentless perfectionist who directed some of cinema’s greatest classics, was so sensitive to criticism that, in 1970, he threatened legal action to block publication of a book which dared to discuss flaws in his films....

Except not exactly that. There's one different vowel.

    Hawaii lawmakers take aim at vacation rentals after Lahaina wildfire amplifies Maui housing crisis ( apnews.com )

    A single mother of two, Amy Chadwick spent years scrimping and saving to buy a house in the town of Lahaina on the Hawaiian island of Maui. But after a devastating fire leveled Lahaina in August and reduced Chadwick’s home to white dust, the cheapest rental she could find for her family and dogs cost $10,000 a month....

    The replacement cost for user devices isn't high, for you it's zero. At most it's your time helping them reprovision the token. Or to the cost of a temporary other token, which you could keep stocked.

    I set up MFA some years ago with yubikeys and authlite to protect AD, it wasn't that expensive. We also did 365 auth to the Microsoft app on personal phones. We didn't have any complaints there, but if we did we would have issued a token or something.

    catloaf ,

    It depends on what you're protecting and how. The token might be a yubikey or RSA token, for example. Whatever is supported by your MFA product. It could even be an old loaner cell phone with no cell service if the only method is an app.

    catloaf ,

    They aren't trying to. This is the first time it's been observed happening.

    Yeah well it's from an outlet literally named "popular science". If you want accuracy, read the actual papers.

    What I really want to know is how it produces offspring that also has both parts. Neither one's DNA has code for the other. And even if both reproduce asexually with plain old binary fission cell division, how do you get both to divide at the same time, and give each cell one of the new organelles?

    catloaf ,

    RSync, scp, rcp, SMB, sneakernet, plus numerous third-party tools. It depends on the platform and exact scenario.

    catloaf ,

    Read the fine manual. They spent the time writing it, the least you can do is read it. https://qutebrowser.org/doc/help/settings.html

    catloaf ,

    You can kind of do MFA on the database. You can require a key, which can be very long and complex, and you can store it on a USB drive. You might be able to use a key stored on a yubikey or something too, I haven't tried it. It probably depends on which KeePass variant you're using.

    Households and houses are not at all the same thing. One apartment building could have over a hundred households.

    The cup itself is labeled 24oz, but it sounds like it can't even fit that much liquid when filled.

    We are limited by our own understanding and imagination, but I don't know any other explanation for silly little nonproductive activities other than "play". Is it because it is play, or is it beyond our understanding? We can't communicate with them, but we can draw parallels between their behaviors and our own natural behaviors.

    the school of "if I can do it: it must be fine to do" ethics

    Some people would call this the "law of the jungle", or the natural state of things.

    It's also not reasonable to assume any one person would run screaming from a badger. People wrestle crocodiles and mountain lions and win.

    I don't think you can shrink an active partition, especially if you're booted from it. Just use gparted live, it's fine. I prefer doing all my resizes offline. The only thing I do online is extending.

    catloaf ,

    Huh, they must have changed that at some point. Last time I checked (which was probably many years ago at this point) they didn't support it. I've just always used tools like gparted because I got used to them.

    catloaf ,

    Yup. If data has to be moved, that's one read and one write, in different parts of the disk. That's going to be slow. (At least they'd be sequential, I think.)

    Not sure if there's a free tier. Lifetime memberships go on sale for cheap at least once a year, though.

    Personally I'd run a free VM in the cloud and scan yourself with nessus, nmap, and such. Trying to scan yourself from inside doesn't really work well for some reason. I assume it's something to do with routing.

    Don't expose anything to the Internet that you don't absolutely have to. If you can, put everything behind a VPN gateway.

    Make backups. Follow the 3-2-1 rule.

    Usually I rely on my network & haven’t needed this kind of document in ages, but I’ve been tasked with creating a résumé for myself.

    Never include a photo in the US. Most companies will immediately discard anything with a photo due to the risk that it can bias the evaluator, intentionally or unintentionally, in terms of race, sex, or age.

    This guy definitely shouldn't reproduce, but I don't think it's the government's place to force that.

    Fun fact, even if you personally don't, you just need a few relatives to do it to identify your family, and then it's only one hop to you. They've identified serial killers and rapists and such this way.

    Assigning non-loopback addresses to the loopback interface seems like a dumb idea. I don't see any reason to do this over assigning the address to eth0 or whatever.

    catloaf ,

    That seems like an edge case, if you'll pardon the pun. I wouldn't recommend people do that in a home network.

    Win+R, logoff, enter.

    That's what I do every time, because I'm often working on a remote system and don't want to mis-click and shut it down.

    how can you film someone who is dead?

    Hot take: don't? They're dead, leave them dead. Rewrite and reshoot if you really have to.
