TheBiscuitLout,

Shooting small Mancunians in the face with an over-powered stapler.

[guide/discussion] How to attack CCDs like that of Amazon Ring (laserpointerforums.com)

Suppose you’re fed up with being video surveilled in public and you object to your neighbor placing your home under 24/7 video surveillance which is fed to a surveillance advertiser (#Amazon). Or you want to kill the video surveillance in vending machines....

TheBiscuitLout,

Chinese cars built with LiDAR are supposedly damaging cameras on road networks, and those lasers are extremely low powered compared to, say, a laser pointer.

TheBiscuitLout,

The drone idea is pretty smart, could just have it trying really hard to locate any objects near it, and happen to fly it past every camera in your area

TheBiscuitLout,

I’m so used to everything we do being another stride into a dystopian hellscape that it took me a moment to realise that this wasn’t (in any immediately obvious way) the government helping the fuel industry. This treaty is absolute nonsense, and should never have been ratified in the first place, so this is actually good news, unless they’ve somehow thought of something worse to replace it with

TheBiscuitLout,

Is it by smashing stuff together until they break something fundamental, and the universe goes dark?

TheBiscuitLout,

Angle grinder and an axe, that man has balls of steel. Fair play to him!

TheBiscuitLout,

And the winner of The Most Scandinavian Sentence of the Year goes to…

TheBiscuitLout,

“Gonna manifest me some pork in the shower for my wife”

TheBiscuitLout,

And according to this comic, that’s somehow my mum’s fault

TheBiscuitLout,

Joplin looks pretty damn good, my question is about the diagram function - basically, I take on more than I can manage, and have made my life a bit of a tangled hellscape. I’m looking to visually organise the physical projects I have started, and see which parts are holding up other projects. Essentially, columns of blocks for steps to complete one thing, each block being its own note, and visually showing if there are steps in other columns on which this block depends, or depends on this. Can it do that?

The way you describe these programs, and their websites suggest that they’re actually going to be way more useful than just my intended use case, I’ve never really considered replacing my basic notes with something like this. I used Evernote for a while, but they made more and more features paid, and it got much less useful in comparison to the iOS notes app, so I’ve just stuck with that for ages. What you say about a mature app with continued support really matters. Photobucket are working their absolute hardest to prove that point at the moment.

TheBiscuitLout,

One of my friends once called me pedantic, and I got to correct his pronunciation of it - he stressed the first syllable. One of the high points of my life.

TheBiscuitLout,

How about drone strikes then? Like big undeclared man made sources of methane get a drone up the corn hole.

Wot The Fsck You Say, Spotify? (lemmy.world)

Edit: A couple times I’ve said eBook while I actually meant Audiobook. I’ve learned that Spotify has a 15 hour limit per month for their free ‘included in premium’ audiobooks. However these are the two books I listened to for free, and even rounding up to 13 hours it doesn’t make sense, unless they count accidental...

TheBiscuitLout,

Can you recommend a distro for being a media server? I too have been complacent about my media habits, and the time has come to sort it out.

TheBiscuitLout,

So it’ll go into suspension if I don’t deal with that at install, and I can’t turn it off later easily? That’s a dick, thanks for the warning

TheBiscuitLout,

Nice one. It’s been a hot minute (or a warm couple of decades at least) since I’ve used Linux, but I had a play a short while back, and remembered more than I expected, so I’m going to turn an old Mac mini that I have spare into a media server

TheBiscuitLout,

No worries, there’s going to be a wealth of stuff I have to request myself with, it’s just another thing on the list. Thanks for pointing it out!

TheBiscuitLout,

Thank you for posting this! I saw several examples of this during the recent freezing weather in the UK, and was confused as to what it was. I don’t recall having seen it before, but then I haven’t lived in a wooded valley during prolonged double-digit negative temperatures before either.

TheBiscuitLout,

That would correlate to when I saw it. It’s actually pretty hard to photograph when the ground is frosty, as there’s so little contrast

TheBiscuitLout,

My life might generally be a train wreck, but god damn am I good at emergencies, especially the “we’ve turned a truck over in a silly place” “The digger’s half sink in the lake” kind. The wheels constantly come off things like keeping my house from being a war zone, but when the actual wheels come off, I’m actually fitting on all cylinders for once. It’s a kind of crap trade off, but I’m not sure how much I’d want to change it!

TheBiscuitLout,

I really got that impression reading it, you’re right on the money

TheBiscuitLout,

Not a book, but one of the Daniels has said that Everything, Everywhere, All At Once is based on his experience of having all 80 of the HDs.

Also, having written that like that reminded me that there’s a character in the Dogman kids graphic novel called 80hd

TheBiscuitLout,

Well I never knew that! Nice explanation, thanks
