KISSmyOS,

I thought I had found one, but then she fucked her ex 15 minutes after she had told me how much she liked me on the phone, and afterwards wanted to cry on my shoulder about how messed up the situation is.

KISSmyOS,

Only if you compare computers that come preinstalled with Windows, operated by users that are already familiar with Windows.
A non-technical user is completely out of their element trying to install Windows, and a computer that comes preinstalled with Linux is easier to use than a Windows PC (no driver installation necessary, no hunting for software on the internet among spam links and ads, preinstalled software for most every-day tasks).

KISSmyOS, (edited )

I fail to see how (again, I’m talking about people new to computers, not people already used to Windows).

You have office, a browser, a mail program, music player, etc. preinstalled, automatic updates, and an app store (usually named “software”) with a search function and a friendly “install” button to look for more software.
Printers are installed automatically when you’re in the same network or connect them via USB.
If you plug in your phone or an USB stick, it shows up in the file manager.

KISSmyOS,

The short answer is: Yes, they can still monetize what you posted, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
(And no, the GDPR doesn’t apply, they can just strip away the associated username and IP address)

Hezbollah Fires Rockets at Israel in Response to Assassination in Beirut (www.nytimes.com)

The Lebanese militia Hezbollah fired a volley of rockets toward a small military base in northern Israel on Saturday morning, in what the group said was an initial response to the assassination of a senior Hamas commander in Lebanon five days ago that has raised fears of a wider conflagration....

KISSmyOS,

Iran, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Russia, US, EU and China are already involved as well.

KISSmyOS,

KISSmyOS,

2023 was at +1.48°C according to preliminary results.

KISSmyOS,

It’s not gay if you keep the SOCKS on.

Biden Condemns Trump as Dire Threat to Democracy in a Blistering Speech (www.nytimes.com)

President Biden on Friday delivered a ferocious condemnation of Donald J. Trump, his likely 2024 opponent, warning in searing language that the former president had directed an insurrection and would aim to undo the nation’s bedrock democracy if he returned to power....

KISSmyOS, (edited )

The Democrats still don’t get it.
“We’re not Trump” isn’t enough, no matter how bad Trump is.

There are no people on the fence between voting Biden or voting Trump anymore. The distance between the camps is too great, every voter is already entrenched in one of the 2 camps.

Dems need to target the people on the fence between voting Dem and not voting at all. The people who are frustrated by the lack of progress, the lack of a real choice that will change the status quo, and the slow decline of their standard of living while the rich get richer. If they ran with a more radical leftist candidate and program, they might even convince a few Trump voters who just want things to change, no matter what direction, cause the current status quo sucks.

They won’t lose any core voters or centrists by moving to the left, cause those people know that the alternative is right-wing fascism. But there’s a huge voting pool of people who won’t stand in line for hours to vote for a candidate who has done nothing and will continue to do nothing for them, while their standard of life slowly deteriorates.

KISSmyOS,

Can I restart my life at 6 with $10 million in Google stocks?

KISSmyOS,

Expect the decision to come out sometime in 2025

KISSmyOS,

Once in a while I just roll some dice behind the DM screen and smile at a player.

KISSmyOS,

For this reason (and others) I like to house-rule that leveling up takes a set (long) amount of in game time.

KISSmyOS,

When joining an experienced group in a setting I don’t know yet, I like to play a newbie character.
I don’t play dumb of course, but playing an outsider reduces the discrepancy between player knowledge and character knowledge. I can stay in character while doing stuff that makes the other players shake their heads and groan. And as I learn the setting, so does my character learn how the world works.

KISSmyOS,

Shadowrun does this right.
The hacker sees a virtual representation of what the group faces, can interact with it in real time, and is in actual mortal danger along with everyone else, even while sitting at home.

KISSmyOS,

I just feel like playing a character that’s fully immersed in the long history of intrigue between 2 rival houses is really annoying when you as the player don’t even know the names of the lords ruling them at present.
And I’m not talking about playing a time traveler or a self-insert. I’m thinking of a wizard fresh out of the academy who’s been buried in books for all their life and is now facing the real world. Or a cleric from a strict sect whose black-and-white morals clash with the realities of the murder-hobo life. Admittedly, not the most innovative concepts, but as a new player, you have limited options of what you can portray believingly.

KISSmyOS,

There’s a huge chunk of rock floating in the sky above us, and we look at it and just go “hm”.

KISSmyOS,

Humans just barely survived during most of our history.
Then a warming of the climate made agriculture possible, which lead to a surplus of food that could be used to feed people who were doing something other than gathering food.
Those people invented writing and that made real technological progress possible for the first time.

KISSmyOS,

This is lemmy, there is no “downvote to oblivion”.
The default algorithm here basically sorts by new while the thread is fresh and downvoted comments aren’t hidden.

Besides, your opinion isn’t unpopular at all.
