If you treat a gun like your keys or wallet then you shouldn’t be carrying it.

I don’t leave my keys or wallet unattended. Is that something people do?

They offer other options for Microsoft accounts. Using it as a normal TOTP app is the same as any other Authenticator app.

It’s most likely the number matching requirement that the other person doesn’t like, or their employer has a policy that’s annoying.

You absolutely can, it’s just not easy.

RAID setup for Ubuntu media server

I recently acquired two used blade servers and a short rack to put them in. I'm planning to use one or the other as the replacement for a media server that died on me a bit ago. The old media server was just a little refurb dell workstation, with a single SSD in it, but the servers have 6 and 8 bays, respectively....

They’ll have to get a new SAS controller unless the RAID controller has an HBA mode. Running ZFS under a RAID controller is the best way to lose all of your data.

ZFS is wonderful but it takes quite a bit of planning and specialized knowledge to implement properly. Your fear of a failed RAID controller is a bit much, too. I’ve had to deal with a single controller failure in 30 years of IT (and I’ve done warranty work for all of the major OEMs in corporate IT for most of those 30 years)

You buy a budget printer if you want to get into 3d printers. You buy a prusa if you want to get into 3d printing.

If you want to learn how everything works, you should get a kit. After it’s assembled you should be able to print nearly endlessly with nothing more than basic maintenance.

It’s quite literally in the disclosures and the article you are commenting on. They lost $151MM in 2022 and $90MM in 2023.

Hollywood is in St. Mary’s county. So is California (also a town, just about 15 minutes down the highway) for that matter.

College swimmers, volleyball players sue NCAA over transgender policies ( apnews.com )

Former Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines was among more than a dozen college athletes who filed a lawsuit against the NCAA on Thursday, accusing it of violating their Title IX rights by allowing transgender woman Lia Thomas to compete at the national championships in 2022....

mark3748 ,

I mean, that’s already covered by testing. Women’s and men’s sports have different limits, USADA isn’t as dumb as you think.

Unless you’re just completely unaware that such an agency exists, then you just don’t understand how competitive sports actually work.

mark3748 ,

ATA was rolled into the SCSI subsystem, so both sata and pata are covered by SDX.

mark3748 ,

Agreed. I’m just looking at the machines that were purchased at the launch of Win 11, but might not have had the proper hardware to transition off 10.

Windows 11 launched in 2021. The bare minimum hardware (8th gen intel) is from 2017. If you were buying 5+ year old hardware in 2021 then that’s on you.

mark3748 ,

The TPM is a hardware feature of every processor that's supported. I really don't understand all of this bullshit, the requirements are basically "don't run this on ancient hardware." That's it.

mark3748 ,

The module is only needed for older systems.

Not needed at all. If you’re installing it on an older system, you’re already bypassing the requirements so why bother with a TPM?

mark3748 ,

They only have to comply while the device is within the EEA. You leave, you can’t access the 3rd party store. You can’t access the store, you can’t download anything from it.

When you return, you’re under the DMA and can access it again.

mark3748 ,

There is no judgement in a settlement, and settlements are not case-law. The court has little to do with the settlement as it is simply a binding agreement between the parties to resolve the dispute outside of the court. The judge must also agree and sign off but the settlement is only binding to the parties to the suit and does not create any precedent.

If Nintendo wishes to go after anyone else, it will require an entirely new suit. A quick google on the differences between judgements, verdicts, and settlements will explain a lot better.

mark3748 ,

Your first link is the same case as the OP. It just keeps getting bigger and more complex.

mark3748 ,

Yeah, only four times this week. Rolling distro life.

mark3748 ,

UniFi and Edge are different product lines. UniFi uses a controller (local or cloud-based) and edge products are the more traditional interface on the device itself.

The article clearly states that edgerouter is the affected product, which means the default password and remote admin interface were the attack vectors.

No, district 3 is not Lamborns, that was Ken Buck. Also very little risk of her winning a primary in either district, so we’re almost certainly going to be rid of her.

Newbie tech ( lemmy.dbzer0.com )

This is probably a ridiculous question, but I usually stream from my laptop to my LG tv or my phone to any other tv, and I find that using my VPN keeps the casting output option from working. Like in Popcorntime, the Watch Now doesn't show my tv, only the laptop app or VLC. On my daughter's fire stick I can't even cast to it...

It’s a public GitHub repo, there was nothing private about anything there

mark3748 ,

Quite literally the text of the Computer Fraud and Abuse act. Unauthorized access of computer systems can get you 20-years at club fed. Seems like some of these people need a history lesson.

mark3748 ,

These are separate issues and it’s a very complex set of issues. Reverse engineering is generally “okay” as long as you aren’t directly copying code, because you’ll run afoul of copyright laws. That doesn’t grant them the rights to access anyone else’s computer systems without authorization.

Tools that can be used maliciously are generally allowed because they have legitimate uses, using them to gain access or otherwise harm a computer system or network without authorization is criminal. You keep mentioning “suing” but this is not a civil issue, violating the CFAA is a crime.

Aaron Swartz got supremely fucked for writing a script that downloaded files he legally could access but technically was unauthorized because he accessed them in a way the corporation didn’t like.

mark3748 ,

Yeah, you join a general instance, get everything set up the way you want it, get comfortable using it for a couple of months, then it goes down. You track down the instance admins Mastodon account to see if there is an update. There is a single post saying “I’m aware this is down and I’m working on it.” You check several days later, no updates on your lemmy instance but several hundred cat photos each day and announcements about how “Mastodon was successfully updated!” Months go by, you think to yourself “maybe I should just go back to Reddit.” More cat toots, more info on the Mastodon instance, no lemmy news.

So after waiting for months, you decide to pick another instance. All of your old content is gone forever, so you try to rebuild. You start adding your communities back only to find out the admin has decided to defederate from the instances several of those communities are on for whatever reasons there may be. Your choices are to find another instance or find new communities hosted somewhere that you can access. You give up and just read whatever’s on the feed. You play with the sorting options and find out they all kinda suck because you’re using lemmy wrong, but find some good content and some people you’re happy to interact with. You get past the five to ten posts with any sort of engagement, it’s just bot spam with no engagement whatsoever and porn.

mark3748 ,

Yeah, because geddit.social and lemmyloves.art are super controversial. Meanwhile I’m on sh.it just.works and can’t interact with anything on beehaw and several others.

You’re absolutely correct though, everyone should join lemmy.world, because federation means “consolidating everything to a single instance.”

I am full-on 100% in the fediverse. Hand waving and dismissing any and all problems is not productive in any way. Everyone should be joining whatever instance they want and be able access anything that is available, unfortunately in its current state that isn’t really possible. Telling people it is and then completely dismissing my personal experience attempting to do that exact thing, while simultaneously making a strawman ad hominem attack will surely convince people that this is a warm, welcoming place.

mark3748 ,

That’s interesting, I remember reading a post to comp.os.minix about 32 years ago about a Finnish student who made his own OS. It was just a kernel that barely worked. Wish I’d known it was already dominant in the server space for over 8 years, could have gotten a head start!

Self hosted Nextcloud. Immich for photos.

mark3748 ,

Weirdly enough, I didn’t say it was my only way to store anything, nor that the program stores photos at all.

It syncs the photos from my devices, the storage for those photos is on a separate server (as is the NextCloud storage) that is encrypted and backed up to Backblaze B2.

Immich is a gallery and organization app that syncs from your devices, the underlying storage is whatever you provide.

mark3748 ,

It was firmware-level, and installed itself. Reinstalling the OS was not a solution.

That’s a security feature the owner sets. Your beef is with the website trying to improve their security and the malicious actors that warrant that, cloudflare just provides the tools.

From a privacy standpoint, cloudflare dns protects your sites very well. They will proxy requests so you don’t have to reveal your IPs, and provide a lot of security tools for free. Even without registering your domain there its a great option for DNS.

mark3748 ,

NextDNS is also a DNS server. It is a much more robust service but it is not self-hosted.

I use it because it’s insanely easy to use and isn’t limited to my own network. For internal DNS I use PowerDNS with NextDNS upstream. Since I have 6 users and 4 servers (3 of which are VM hosts) I pay for it, but most home users would never need to.

Check it out, NextDNS.io

If I had a store that sold everything in the world two blocks away, I wouldn’t need Amazon, that’s an excellent point. Unfortunately, in the real world, there’s just a 7-11 with a big yellow box in front.
