someguy3, in Why do so many posts have "rule" in the title?

The 196 community says all posts must have “rule” in the title.

null,

No it doesn’t

numbermess, in Why do so many posts have "rule" in the title?

I have had the same experience and question. I don’t know why there is so much of it, but have found that blocking any community that is named or references “196” seems to take care of it.

I decided that I was never really going to devote the time to get in on the joke and there was way too much of it anyway.

Nachorella,

There really isn’t a joke to get, it’s just a silly community, so if you weren’t enjoying the posts you’re not missing out. I hope you can rest easy now, friend.

I have been resting easy for months! Thanks bud.

jws_shadotak, in Why do so many posts have "rule" in the title?

rule of the 196 community is you must post something before you leave.

Fixbeat,

Wtf is 196?

palebluethought,

As in the 196@lemmy.ml channel

nave,

The more popular one is !196

stoy, in Who is liable in court for this hypothetical double breach of contact?

Healthcorp is still liable, you can subcontract a job, but uou can’t subcontract the responsibillity.

What I mean is that Healthcorp should have procedures to test the backup, and as soon as it failed, they should inform the government.

It can also be asked, why Healthcorp only had one backup of the data, when it is best practice to have a 3-2-1 backup system, if Archivetopia offered a service as a 3-2-1 solution, why didn’t Healthcorp select that? If they did why didn’t they verify the claims of the service?

At the end, Healthcorp would get hit with a fine, but they in turn could sue Archivetopia for breach of contract.

Starbuck, (edited ) in Can this drive work with raspberry Pi -- links to how-tos appreciated

Equipment

The Raspberry Pi won’t be able to supply enough power for a 3.5-inch hard drive.

Steps

  1. Connect the hard drive to the adapter:

    • Carefully plug the SATA power and data cables from the SATA to USB adapter into the corresponding ports on the HGST Ultrastar He12 drive.
  2. Connect to the Raspberry Pi:

    • Plug the USB end of the SATA to USB adapter into an available USB port on your Raspberry Pi.
  3. Power the hard drive:

    • Connect the external power supply to the hard drive. Do not attempt to power it solely through the Raspberry Pi.
  4. Mount the hard drive (on the Raspberry Pi):

    • Check if the drive is detected: Use the command lsblk to list connected block devices. Your hard drive should show up (e.g., /dev/sda1).
  • Format: The hard drive might come pre-formatted with a filesystem that Raspberry Pi doesn’t recognize. You may need to format it using a Linux-compatible filesystem like ext4. Use mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1 (replace ‘/dev/sda1’ if necessary).
  • Create a mount point: Use the command sudo mkdir /mnt/mydrive (you can replace ‘mydrive’ with any name you prefer).
    • Mount the drive: Use the command sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mydrive (replace ‘/dev/sda1’ with the actual device name if different).

Important Considerations

  • Power: Raspberry Pi’s USB ports cannot provide enough power for a large hard drive. Using an external power supply is crucial to avoid damaging the Raspberry Pi or causing the hard drive to malfunction.
  • Automatic Mounting: To automatically mount the drive on startup, you’ll need to edit your /etc/fstab file.

Additional Tips

  • Enclosure: Consider getting an enclosure for the hard drive and its adapter for protection and portability.
  • Data Transfer: File transfers over USB 2.0 (if your Raspberry Pi has that) will be slower than directly connected SATA.

PS: I’m a human who started typing out half of this, then wanted to see if the AI could come up with a better response. I gave it the image from the posting above and said “I want to connect this to a Raspberry Pi” and I thought it came out with a better response. Mine originally only mentioned the USB-SATA part, while the LLM came back with instructions (I had to reorder them, but otherwise they looked good)

minibyte, (edited )

Well done. I’ve had this set up with Kodi and it ran like a dream for years. Only took it offline because I upgraded to a Nvidia Shield Pro when it came out back in 2019.

Edit: I can say that your average spin disk over USB 3.0 read speed is sufficient for 4k Remux if that’s the goal.

Pi doesn’t have a SATA controller built in. You could use a SATA to USB adapter with this drive and it would work though.

minibyte,

I sometimes have trouble getting a low powered device like the pi to power a 3.5 hdd over usb. You’ll need the power source coming from the wall directly to the HDD most likely.

idiomaddict, in I have accepted a job starting late this year, but may be about to receive another offer much sooner. I definitely want to do the later one, how bad would it be to accept the first then leave?

It’s not reasonable that it would give you a bad reputation, but real talk: in a small town and a small industry it might. If you tell them that you’ve got the commitment, they might work with you to allow a leave period, but they’re not super likely to. If this is the industry you had been working in, maybe you can check with a previous mentor?

Edit: if you are going to tell them, wait until you have an offer.

BillDaCatt, in I have accepted a job starting late this year, but may be about to receive another offer much sooner. I definitely want to do the later one, how bad would it be to accept the first then leave?

If you haven’t been offered a position yet, then just be honest with them that you have a commitment coming up that you made before the offer. Let them decide if they still want to hire you. Who knows, they may agree to the time off.

Niiru, in I have accepted a job starting late this year, but may be about to receive another offer much sooner. I definitely want to do the later one, how bad would it be to accept the first then leave?

You have probation period for a reason. Maybe you even like the job. Don’t think too hard about it. Corporates are not your personal friends. “Bad Rep” means nothing (look at CEOs who drive companies into walls and just get picked up by the next one).

Jimmycrackcrack,

hmm, I don’t think I’m aware of any probation periods in any official sense, never had one before on previous contracts, though those have typically been freelance rather than employed. What differentiates this period from normal employment? Shorter notice periods on each side? How long does it usually last?

goog, in What's up with the slash s in many people's comments lately ?

/s means serious post. Take those posts at face value

Boomkop3, in What's up with the slash s in many people's comments lately ?

tone indicators, you can Google them as there are a bunch. Do keep in mind tho: different communities sometimes user different sets of tone indicators /g

/g -> genuine

Jimmycrackcrack,

Wow I only knew about the /s.

Boomkop3,

Glad to be able to help!

Comments ending with “/s” mean the author is being sarcastic. Clearly marking sarcasm is important because of Poe’s law, which stipulates that “without a clear indicator of the author’s intent, any parodic or sarcastic expression of extreme views can be mistaken by some readers for a sincere expression of those views”.

Also fuck sarcasm. Instead of trying hard to make other positions look dumb, just explain your own position. /rant

I can believe this is not sarcasm

WalrusDragonOnABike,

Can confirm. Have been banned for forgetting /s in a stream once where I assumed it wasn’t needed because it was obviously ridiculous and my history there, but random mod thought otherwise.

Even recently here, I put quotes around something to paraphrase the argument some people make and then proceeded to make fun of it outside the quotes and I got a giant rant because someone didn’t realize I was arguing against that idea. Was not even sarcasm in this case, but I guess needed to put “Common dumdum argument:” before the quotes or something, so people would not get the wrong idea before getting to the end or a post 1/2 this size of this one.

/s is a sarcasm tone indicator.

rockSlayer, in What's up with the slash s in many people's comments lately ?

“/s” means the person is being sarcastic, but there’s also a name for this kind of thing: tone indicators. There are several tone indicators out there, all are meant to carry the meaning of the text. If I’m being honest, some tone indicators don’t need to exist because they reintroduce confusion for people that need them for the full context.
