As usual, price and convenience are the biggest reasons people pirate.

This is not a new kind of policy for Tinder. In the past, PhDs in Social Sciences were banned for impersonating 'doctors'.

How were they impersonating doctors? How does Tinder verify any of these claims?

I get the joke, what I don't get is how one can impersonate a doctor on Tinder. Are people wearing lab coats in their pictures or something?

CC BY-NC-SA 4.0

Dude, I get the bloody joke!

I'm very specifically asking how they are impersonating it on Tinder. Is it a picture? Is there a field in Tinder you can fill out with your job title? Do they write it in the description?

And I'm asking how Tinder is verifying that.

Oh, I see now. It's a satire article! Given I don't use Tinder and have seen exclusive dating apps, it really wasn't far-fetched.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Asking for a Linux (or non-Windows) laptop during a job interview?

I'm interviewing for a software dev job currently (it's in the initial stages). If things work out, I'd absolutely prefer a work laptop with Linux installed (I personally use PopOS but any distro will do), a Mac will be second choice, but I absolutely cannot tolerate Windows, I abhor it, I hate it... (If all computers left on...

onlinepersona ,

I've always asked when talking to the person in charge (not HR, they don't know jack): "Which OS do you use and are you open to Linux?"

Had to turn down multiple jobs that were Windows/Mac only. They deployed web apps to the cloud aka linux and refused to develop on linux 🤷

Last I remember, according to the stackoverflow dev survey 40% of devs used Linux at work. Don't be afraid to ask.

https://alternativeto.net The was a discussion about adding something similar to the sidebar, but mods never responded, so this question will keep coming up

Custom ROM: yes, rooted: no

Still, google shouldn't be blocking a messaging functionality just because something is rooted. That's fucked.

Really depends on the banking app. Unfortunately, you have to try it yourself. You can also give it a go in Waydroid.

It might be bugged now. I was able to do it a few months ago. Maybe I did happen to do it at the time of the hardware survey? 🤔

Lots of new Chinese users? Is that due to the trade war? From what I understand they're trying to get rid of Windows?

@Zibetnu my vote goes for Hijinks too! Makes me think of "Heebee-jeebees" 👍

Hold on, League of Legends is going to be impossible to play on Windows?

Very principled. I applaud that 👏

Kerala?

Wow, OK. I half expected a linux distro called Kerala. Hopefully this stance spreads!

That's how licenses work. They protect every single word and if somebody uses that word henceforth, they breach the license.

No VPN, just qBittorrent and I2P = anoymous torrents

CC BY-NC-SA 4.0

An alternative to TOR that's better for P2P.

CC BY-NC-SA 4.0

onlinepersona ,

If "mixed mode" is enabled I2P torrents are allowed to also get peers from other sources than the tracker, and connect to regular IPs, not providing any anonymization. This may be useful if the user is not interested in the anonymization of I2P, but still wants to be able to connect to I2P peers

That's what the description says.

CC BY-NC-SA 4.0

onlinepersona ,

As in I2P itself or bittorrent? In order for I2P to access the network it needs to be able to access the internet. If you're behind a router, that does mean either enabling universal plug and play (UPnP) or manually opening a port for it that forwards traffic to the port on the I2P machine. UPnP is obviously the easiest (if you're behind a router).

If you use only I2P torrents, yes 👍

I think Codeberg/Forgejo is trying to get federation working first (as they should). AI should hopefully come later (if at all).

Does gitlab already have experimental ActivityPub? 😮

Here's the ticket that tracks progress for federation development of Forgejo. Codeberg probably deploys fairly frequently.

That was quick 😮 If they manage to deliver creating pull requests (meaning forking from another instance and sending a pull request back), that would be huge. I'd honestly consider self-hosting.

Tell them if you have to go back to the office, you quit. If enough people do it, they'll backpedal or lose their workforce.

Bro, just make a truly open linux phone instead of trying to sell this kind of shit. IIRC they were bought out by a Russian company and "open" went out of the window.

Thanks. I still find it a little ridiculous to call them "opensource" when their main product isn't even opensource.

CC BY-NC-SA 4.0

Just use I2P 🤷 It's slow, but it's safe

An anonymous network that's better for P2P than TOR (qbittorrent supports anonymous torrents this way). Also allows hidden services like an alternative github, so they could host their code and other stuff their. That would make Nintendo's tantrums and threats meaningless.

I'm relatively unfamiliar with Linux. I'm getting a ThinkPad T460 and want to install Mint on it. Is there anything about the T460 I should know?

It's probably been 15 years since I've used Linux and Mint seems to be the recommended distro for people who aren't all that familiar with Linux like me, but I didn't know if there was anything I should know with this ThinkPad model that anyone is familiar with. My searching around shows people saying everything from it was...

There are a bunch of probes in the linux hardware database. You can check what they are like for your exact model.

@ImInPhx explained it very well. There are hidden source forges on the I2P network. An example of such a service with a clearnet address is https://i2pgit.org/ where I2P itself is also hosted and developed. It's a gitlab instance in I2P.

Dedicated developers could host their own gitlab or gitea instance in I2P and could ignore any messages from Sony, Nintendo or whatever else exists as they would be meaningless.

NVIDIA should be struck down for their practices. I simply don't buy NVIDIA because they're shit on linux + I hate monopolies. It would be great if there were another graphics card maker for desktops and laptops. Now that laptops are slowly going ARM, my hope is that NVIDIA and AMD will have to start contending with Qualcomm in the mobile (laptop, handhelds, smartphones, ...) space. Maybe then we'll see some actual competition.

a) 💖

b) I'm not entirely sure how quotes should work. I imagine that if you quote such licensed text immediately after, it's quite obvious who you're quoting. But if you quote it on some blog somewhere out in the interwebs, proper attribution must be given.
Newspapers do have to attribute whatever they quote (and if they're respectable, they will) because they're trying to earn money with it, but beyond that... no idea. I'm not a lawyer.
Good question though
