This is correct. The only thing that is regulated is the disposal (at least in WA) - otherwise home owners are legally allowed to remove it themselves as they see fit. Not that I recommend it if you don’t know what you’re doing, but you won’t get a fine.

Walter Koenig on the Lean Years After Star Trek: TOS – ‘The Phone Didn't Ring’ (www.ign.com)

“Everybody thinks if you’re an actor, and certainly if you’re an actor and on a television series, you must be doing very well,” Koenig said. “Well, I was barely making more than minimum the first season. The second season I was on the show … I had a contract. I was paid a week’s wage whether I worked a day or a...

$10,000 in 1967 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $92,911.98 today, an increase of $82,911.98 over 57 years. The dollar had an average inflation rate of 3.99% per year between 1967 and today, producing a cumulative price increase of 829.12%.

While not A list pay, that’s still not bad and a livable wage, unless I’m missing something obvious.

Usenet, while way better than torrenting, still requires multiple indexers and providers for this reason. I have 3 of each and rarely ever run into this issue except for very niche releases.

The main benefit is that you don’t need to use a VPN, so you get full download speeds. Also the availability and download speed isn’t dependent on seeders, so more obscure content tends to survive longer on Usenet.

For indexers, I have DrunkenSlug, nzbgeek, and nzbplanet. My backbone providers are UsenetExpress, FrugalUsenet, and Giganews. You can use whatsmyuse.net to make sure you don’t have overlapping backbones.

It’s understandable, sure. It’s also a little more complex up front. For me personally, the pros outweigh the cons and I’d much rather use Usenet over torrenting, even with the cost.

I definitely think it’s DMCA, unfortunately.

It really does depend, so I mainly was speaking from my personal experience. But this is also why using both is recommended for *aar, because then you get the best of both worlds.

Do you know how well the auto leveling works?

I probably won’t be going for commercial use, just hobby stuff mainly. It would be neat to do some nylon stuff but that’s probably as crazy as I’d get.

But yes, ideally my budget is $450-1200 (wide I know, but I’d like to explore my options).

Why did the ability to Watch Playlists Together go away?

In January and February I had curated some playlists and shared them with friends and we watched them together via Watch Together. There was previously an option to Grant Access to the playlist, and after granting access, you could click Watch Together and start a watch party....

This probably doesn’t help, but I use watch together by going to the individual episode and clicking it there. Of course, for a playlist or TV show that means you have to click it for every individual episode.

Crontab to just auto reboot daily is probably better - if your PC becomes unresponsive I doubt it would be able to execute another script on top of everything. Ideally though, you’d do some log diving and figure out the cause.

Constant hand sanitizer - I still haven’t dropped this habit. I see hand sanitizer, I use hand sanitizer.

US energy industry methane emissions are triple what government thinks, study finds (phys.org)

American oil and natural gas wells, pipelines and compressors are spewing three times the amount of the potent heat-trapping gas methane as the government thinks, causing $9.3 billion in yearly climate damage, a new comprehensive study calculates....

Idaho Supreme Court denies Bryan Kohberger’s grand jury appeal (www.seattletimes.com)

Kohberger’s public defenders had argued that a grand jury seated by prosecutors improperly indicted him on four counts of first-degree murder and one count of felony burglary. They contended that Idaho law left open the idea that grand jurors must reach the higher legal standard of beyond a reasonable doubt — the same as at...

Really happy this is the focus of our highest chambers of government and not passing actual regulations for all social media companies, or you know, giving citizens healthcare.

Be the change, become the active user

@GlitzyArmrest@lemmy.world avatar

That’s not specific (or true) though, there are plenty of active niche communities, especially those for localities. Which communities would you like to be more active?

@GlitzyArmrest@lemmy.world avatar

Do you think that wealthy citizens can’t be bought off by hostile foreign governments? Neither is better - we need actual regulation rather than worrying about a single company.

I’ve got bad news for you, the CCP is happy to use American social media to manipulate the populous, it doesn’t matter if it’s US owned or not.
