A bidet helps. Gentle splash of water vs scratchy paper.

  • 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G mobile data made some sense as it represents generational leaps in the technology itself but then Xfinity wants to advertise "10g" internet...

    Comcast says it represents a 10 Gigabit cable internet network they are building (it doesn’t exist) so they are basically changing the meaning of the g from generation to gig to act like 10g is 5 generations better (or twice as fast)…or that they have a 10 gigabit network. Neither is accurate. It’s still just cable...

    Same here. Before fiber came to my suburb I could only choose AT&T or Comcast. AT&T’s fastest plan was 50mbps and never pulled more than 30. They’ve had permits here to put up Verizon 5G towers for 5 years but haven’t built a single one because of the tin foil hat brigade. I would love to switch to Verizon because I’d save a shitload on bundling it with my cell phones. Verizon has LTE but that would be like going back to the DSL.

    You have my vote if you run for office.

    I’ve heard in other countries they have a CHOICE of electricity providers. Boggles my mind. CHOOSE who you buy electricity from? Like more than 1?

    Interesting

    mysoulishome OP ,
    @mysoulishome@lemmy.world avatar

    Verizon and TMobile have been advertising 5g home internet with a discount to their mobile customers, I think that is where Comcast is aiming these ads. To get people to conflate it. Most folks watching these ads don’t know what a gigabit is they are just thinking oh wow maybe Comcast is better.

    For the people who do know what a gigabit is, Comcast is saying they are “building a 10 gig network” which means fucking nothing. I’m building a 1,000 story house. There are going to be 998 new stories on my house soon, you see! You’ll see.

    Yeah it has a funny headline but is 100% accurate. T-Pain’s cover is awesome and he shared the tweet:

    Legendary rapper T-Pain had a completely different experience with Osbourne on X (formerly Twitter) earlier this year.

    “I sang on a cover of ‘War Pigs’ at The Sun Rose and Ozzy tweeted at me saying it was the best cover he had ever seen and wishes we had called him. Hell, I wish I had his phone number. I would have loved to share the stage with him,” said T-Pain. “But I’ll admit when I first saw he had tweeted at me I full expected a racist rant, but it couldn’t have been further from the truth. Ozzy is a real one.”

    This is really strange. For some reason they think you are the same person or entity as this techdiscount whatever account. Normally that would be because you have the same mailing address, or link the same bank account or something. Maybe your name and date of birth are similar to this other banned person?

    Really stupid.

    I think I need to watch that movie a second and third time. The first I wasn’t expecting the journey from a little guy finding success movie trope to literally being an insane bad guy, with a fucking brilliantly nuanced acting job by DDL. All of the layers went right over my head until the closing credits like…… oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Super interesting too visiting the oil exhibit at the Kern County museum…knowing that PT visited it developing the ideas…and seeing the modern day oil fields, pipelines and smog everywhere around the San Joaquin valley now.

    I literally grew up there and never thought much about it. I need to watch it again.

    The NFL’s broadcasting and subscription strategy is so idiotic. I pirate about 50% of the games and watch 50% on broadcast TV. If they had a subscription model that was comprehensible and reasonably priced I would pay it but it’s not even coherent what various subscriptions I would need to have and bundle.

    I asked Bard, google’s AI, and this is what it said in response to how much does NFL Sunday ticket cost:

    The cost of NFL Sunday Ticket depends on whether you subscribe through YouTube TV or YouTube Primetime Channels and whether you want to add NFL RedZone. Here's a breakdown:

    Through YouTube TV:

    NFL Sunday Ticket: $349 per season ($249 presale price until June 6)
    NFL Sunday Ticket + NFL RedZone: $389 per season ($289 presale price until June 6)
    Through YouTube Primetime Channels:

    NFL Sunday Ticket: $449 per season ($349 presale price until June 6)
    NFL Sunday Ticket + NFL RedZone: $489 per season ($389 presale price until June 6)
    Important notes:

    Prices listed above include your YouTube TV subscription for your first month of service. Afterward, you'll only see a $73 monthly charge to have access to its live TV channels.
    Ordering NFL Sunday Ticket without YouTube TV is possible, but it's $100 more expensive than the YouTube TV option.
    Once you order NFL Sunday Ticket, you cannot cancel and get a refund.

    Old iPods are coming into fashion because even younger folks are wanting something like this.

    I would consider buying a refurbished iPod classic on eBay. Simple and elegant. User friendly. Do you really need the Bluetooth part?

    mysoulishome , (edited )
    @mysoulishome@lemmy.world avatar

    Are you wanting to put songs in wav or flaac Format or something? I feel like a decently size used iPod wouldn’t be a whole lot more than $100 and 100 GB could hold 10,000 songs in high-quality 320 kB/s or so.

    It sounds like you’re trying to build an iPod classic with Bluetooth

    I DJ weddings for about 10 years and literally had my entire entire DJ library backed up on one

    Where to turn to if I need books that are paywalled behind overly expensive academic portals?

    I need some books paywalled behind Oxford Politics Trove and they aren’t on Anna’s lib, Zlib, Libgen, Memory of the World, Aaarg, or the Internet Archive. Not sure to whom else to turn to. I hate that knowledge like this is paywalled, and I highly doubt the authors will be paid if I pay the highway robbery of a price.

    Cringey, contractually obligated interviews are to blame in my opinion. Coach / player is legally required to give 30 seconds to the halftime reporter/tv audience. They literally count down the seconds and spout whatever nonsense to fill the time. 99% of the time they don’t say what they are really thinking or feeling at all. Benefits no one. The reporter has to do whatever they can to sell it…or they risk getting fired. I’m positive the producers tell them something like you come back with a sound bite from the coach, I don’t care what you have to do. But no one knows the producer’s name. And we would never fucking know what they made up if they didn’t say so.

    I think the NFL is getting smarter about bringing coaches’ and players’ actual, authentic personalities into it. The player intros where they say something funny (ball so hard university). Mic’d up. Coaches who are combative, funny, weird in press conferences. It is infinitely more entertaining and watchable.

    People want to see what these folks are actually thinking and feeling. It’s intriguing as a human being to understand. No one wants to hear platitudes. I wish they would try to strike a balance between expecting or requiring coaches to play nice and being more like documentarians.

    If I was in charge I would coach all of them on giving authentic interviews that bring the audience into the game…encourage it sternly…emphasize being themselves over all. Honest. Authentic. If they can’t…fucking don’t then. Let the audience judge them. Fake interviews are worst.

    If a reporter came on at halftime and said well the coach actually growled at me and said he didn’t want to talk about it when I asked a question… I would fucking love it.

    With BlueSky moving towards finally opening up federation, I'm interested in how people feel about it?

    Would you be open to the idea of Mastodon, Lemmy, Pixelfed, and other Fediverse platforms adopting the AT protocol in order to federate with it?

    If those technical hurdles could be overcome, would you support your instance federating with BlueSky?

    Does the same go for other commercially-owned platforms, such as Threads and Tumblr?

    It’s a detour…you have to drive through the bush.

    OK Microsoft... trying to log into Teams while work lapop updates to Windows 11. No longer works in any iPhone browser, including Edge. The app will not authenticate my work login. (lemmy.world)

    Update…Per Microsoft’s instructions, disabled all tracking protections in Safari and requested desktop mode and it works. Their instructions say turn protections back on after using teams… 😐...

    mysoulishome OP ,
    @mysoulishome@lemmy.world avatar

    Ah…after 15 minutes of fucking around I was able to get it to work only after disabling all tracking prevention at Microsoft’s direction and clearing all browser history and requesting desktop website. Their instructions say to turn tracking protections back on when you are done using teams browser version…

    Now I can go online and tell my team windows 11 is still installing. Hurray! 😂

    mysoulishome OP ,
    @mysoulishome@lemmy.world avatar

    I was hired during the pandemic and Teams has been my main way of interacting with my employer and co-workers since 2021. I like it OK most days but Microsoft likes to release updates that break things several times a year. Oh…I like this new feature! And…an update broke it

    mysoulishome OP ,
    @mysoulishome@lemmy.world avatar

    When it works it’s alright. Interfaces with the rest of office. But Microsoft literally breaks it all the time…it’s never been more broken then when I updated to Windows 11 today. Literally spent 6 fucking hours on updates, reboots, uninstalls and reinstalls. When I logged off and went home I was still using the damn web version because windows updates were immediately breaking anything tech support fixed. I got paid for doing very little but really frustrating day.

    mysoulishome OP ,
    @mysoulishome@lemmy.world avatar

    Using Teams at first I was annoyed it didn’t have some zoom features like video backgrounds or whatever…but after using it quite a while I do like it better. The problem for me is you never know what update is going to break something whenever updates are forced…for office and all of the other work software.

    Yeah that setting does it’a job, I get rejected if I try to use a teams app. But it works on the web for whatever reason.
