The Internet was done so well that most people think of it as a natural resource like the Pacific Ocean, rather than something that was man-made. When was the last time a technology with a scale like that was so error-free? The Web, in comparison, is a joke. The Web was done by amateurs.

I have a lot of special characters memorized (ALT-[key] for windows and long presses for Android) but why is it so needlessly difficult to Google each one individually? Surely someone, somewhere must have compiled a good table of all of them. It would sure come in handy.

Oh really? This might indicate some issue with your system, as Charmap is a tiny utility loading a small font file. Good to hear you have a workaround, though.

I think one issue with tables is the size of current Unicode alphabets, but there's always Wikipedia:

"I find my feelings about AI are actually pretty similar to my feelings about blockchains: they do a poor job of much of what people try to do with them, they can't do the things their creators claim they one day might, and many of the things they are well suited to do may not be altogether that beneficial."

Nice response by to the self-entitled techbros who think they should be given slack for bad products.

“Do Bad Reviews Kill Companies?”

@drahardja @mekkaokereke “all that a review does is accelerate what was already going on” <— exactly!

@craigbrownphd I'm thinking of signing up for this. I typically do a lot of coding questions (Copilot which i pay for via github) but I also do a lot of writing, idea/image generation and ideas.

How would you rank Gemini Advanced, GPT Plus and Copilot Pro

How would anyone else out their rank them?

When the staff-less shop is actually staffed by under-paid distant workers, we know the information technology revolution is a lot less 'new' than it appears.

Its the same old worker exploitation, just wearing different clothes & speaking a different dialect...

As I argued in my 2002 book on the Information Society, the info tech 'revolution' may change the quantitative character of capitalism but it leaves its underlying form & logic untouched.

@ChrisMayLA6 Exploitation disguised as convenience? I think I've heard that one before ...

The Gramophone: A simple and beautifully engineered vintage wind up machine that plays music without using any electrical power at all. Our HMV was made in 1935, still looks and works a treat, and we love it to bits! Judge for yourself!

Our beautiful vintage HMV gramophone playing a bit of Glenn Miller!

I wish smartphones were designed with batteries that pop out. So when the battery gets old you just pop in a new one, like replacing a battery in a flashlight or something similar. It would be less expensive for the consumer and also more environmentally friendly. Both of those things are probably why it will never happen but I can still dream. 😂

@noellemitchell may be what you are looking for.

@sennoma I've seen the Fairphone before but as far as I know it's not available in the US. Which is disappointing.

Modder made an IRC client that runs entirely inside the motherboard’s BIOS chip

Phillip Tennen, developer of the open-source axleOS, has recently decided to use what he learned from that project to create an IRC client that runs entirely within the UEFI pre-boot environment, with no operating system required. This “UEFIRC” is n ...continues

Do you have a robot vacuum cleaner and what is your opinion of it?


#Poll #Technology #HouseChores #Vacuum #Cleaning

Ngl, I have one and I like it. But it's not a replacement to an actual vacuum cleaner in my experience.

I like it because it zips around and cleans the apartment each day when I'm at work - so its nice to come home to clean floors.

But I'm glad I have a "real" vacuum for when I do a deep clean myself.
