I mean, it is something surprisingly absent from most installers

Ubuntu is still just one series of distros

This includes "all offences against life itself, such as murder, genocide, abortion, euthanasia, and willful suicide” must be recognized as contrary to human dignity ", but also "all violations of the integrity of the human person, such as mutilation, physical and mental torture, undue psychological pressures ".

And, finally, it includes "all offences against human dignity, such as subhuman living conditions, arbitrary imprisonment, deportation, slavery, prostitution, the selling of women and children, degrading working conditions where individuals are treated as mere tools for profit rather than free and responsible persons".

It also says that sex change threatens dignity.

I think it's just that women and children are trafficked more often, lol

It's kinda unmaintained, last I heard

Windows's entire selling point is backwards-compatibility, maybe except the ARM version.

What apps would you love to have open-source alternatives for?

It seems like the FOSS community is continuing to grow, and FOSS apps keep getting better (Immich reallh blew my mind recently), which is a big win 😎 but there are still many apps I use that I would kill for an open source alternative. I am curious what you guys think? Are there any apps you'd love alternatives for?

AirPlay projecting to other devices. I only see a tool to receive projections

Wikipedia is gauging interest for an extension that uses AI to see if any claim is cited on Wikipedia ( meta.wikimedia.org )

A prototype is available, though it's Chrome-only and English-only at the moment. How this'll work is you select some text and then click on the extension, which will try to "return the relevant quote and inference for the user, along with links to article and quality signals"....

Aatube OP ,

For now. Like I said, they're gauging interest in it for now, and it's currently basically a prototype. So kinda ironically, to support free knowledge, we've gotta inconvene (the proper verb is apparently "inconvenience"? sorry that's just too weird) and grovel to Google a bit. Someone can probably write a bs marketing passage about Google's auspices to supplant free knowledge through providing accessibility to a supernation of usuremongers.

Firefox conversion by-hand doesn't seem like it'll be that hard either, thanks to Manifest v3, which removed the stupid deviation from the standard of Chrome using callbacks instead of promises like everyone else does.

Well, I was looking for something along the lines of "inconvene ourselves". Thanks for the insight and writeup for a random internet bookperson.

There's stuff from before 1990. You can help fix it.

It could run the search in the background

I prefer a floating button next to the text than having to set my default search engine to Wikipedia or downloading an addon that only adds it to the context menu, lol. I need to complete my unholy trinity of levitating context buttons

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

Well, the hard truth is that AI's convenient and sells

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

The problem arises when a site uses different wording. Wikipedia's search engine isn't that good, so that problem could make the extension fail enough times to stunt retention.

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

Not sure where the not-working is here.

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

Yeah, because there is no relevant Wikipedia information about what you searched for.

Due to Russell's Teapot, I cannot be thoroughly sure of that, at least in article space. However, that does not mean your claim stands, unless you find a mention.

In principle, the media has no reason to cover this, so no mention should exist.

https://arewewaylandyet.com/ has links to the caveats at the bottom, though it doesn't mention CosmicDE, which is also in pre-alpha rn so I'd recommend use something stabler rn, especially for your main computer

For KDE, they are:

TIL the dev of Iron Lung, an acclaimed indie horror game, faced significant backlash over increasing the price from $6 to $8 ( www.ign.com )

Then, responding to those who have said he’s “only doing this for the money", Szymanski tweeted: “Yes, no fucking shit. I make games for a living. If I didn't want to earn money from them I wouldn't charge money for them.”...

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

The price change was accompanied by an update that included

the addition of the Terminal, which, located in the back of the Iron Lung, opposite to the photograph display monitor, could be used to look up certain terms relevant to the game's lore. Aside from the addition of the terminal, the update also included the addition of the SM-8[(a new location to explore)], Steam achievements, trading cards, and a point shop. The update also fixed collision issues with the Humming Monolith, as well as moved it to a different location.

Isn't that basically what they said? Or are you outnerding them for paraphrasing inside quotation marks? In that case, sure.

I agree, I hate it when I say "removing unemployment payouts to millionaires can save our nation tens of millions of dollars!" to be met with "that's just .418% of our national debt"

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

It's like insisting on always paying with cash imo. Does some ethics but quite a bit of an inconvenience if you're in a queue.

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

"this" refers to bumping the price

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

you think we talk earthlingspeak?

Anyways I agree with howrar, and all the downvotes on your thread show how many people also do. Language isn't something that College Board can really regulate. They can punish you for not following their rules, sure, but the thing about language is that it changes.

Aatube OP ,

Sounds like something a lizard would say

Aatube OP ,

thing is, using a cognitive verb does not make the sentence in the passive voice

Aatube OP ,

I see that you have been inspired to downvote. Interesting.

This is a pretty silly-cal conversation. "Facts and opinions are different things." was only a minor facet in circuitfarmer's reply anyways. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subjectification_(linguistics) literally turned many sentences into opinions. If we're really gonna look at these from a lingusitics standpoint, there's nothing that indicates if it's an opinion from just syntax analysis. It's only because we often associate "5 stars" and "worth" with opinions that it looks like an opinion.

Aatube OP ,
Aatube avatar

Yeah, I get the same level of annoyed on both of these. Cheerio
