Happy 12th Birthday to the funny little project that stole my name

Since we’re all onboard with telling off Linux evangelists in this moment, Linux has privacy issues too! If your screen goes to sleep, when you come back you’re greeted by your screen contents - not the Lock Screen for a solid two seconds or so (at least in GNOME Shell, the default desktop environment for many distros).

@ebassi @bdiederik
shoulder-surfing isn’t a serious threat to me, so I haven’t bothered to look into fixing it, but it does always happen and reminds me that something is wrong.

@c0dec0dec0de@hachyderm.io avatar

@visone and GNOME is a Linux desktop environment. It’s the default on the most widespread workstation and desktop distributions.
But, fine, Linux doesn’t actually do SecureBoot attestation. The other major OSes do. (Yes, you can load a machine-owner key and do it yourself, but that surely doesn’t count as the OS providing it or supporting it)

@whitequark hooray, a metric which calls me normal

@tess I came up with a neat theory, but then I disproved it with this experiment should totally be publishable!
It’s like two papers in one! I came up with a theory that fires all these things. I disproved that theory.

Editing an interview, and it just hit me that "abortion bounty hunter law" is a real thing. The people who shamed everyone over the Supreme Court in 2016 were right as hell.

@lolgop the Boom Lawyered folks over at https://rewirenewsgroup.com/ call it Any Random Motherfucker standing. Just because you “feel some kind of way” about someone else’s healthcare decision, you now have standing in court?!

reMarkable 2 is more than half-off today on Amazon! But I think I want the Kobo Elipsa 2E instead because it's also running linux and has a beefier processor for when I feel like doing stupid things to it...

Apple apologizes for iPad ad

“Creativity is in our DNA at Apple, and it’s incredibly important to us to design products that empower creatives all over the world,” said Tor Myhren, the company’s VP of marketing communications. “Our goal is to always celebrate the myriad of ways users express themselves and bring their ideas to life through iPad. We missed the mark with this video, and we’re sorry.”

Interestingly, Google used the same language to conclude its apology for its generative AI’s historical depictions of race. It explained its intention with flowery language and then said “But it’s missing the mark here”.

I wonder if we’ll be seeing more of this type of response to corporate tone-deafness (a generous term) going forward. Big “I’m sorry you feel that way (but this isn’t indicative of any problems with me)” vibes.

@c0dec0dec0de@hachyderm.io avatar

@Seirdy Right on the mark here: “It reads like an apology to investors for making people unhappy, not an apology to the people who got angry.”

Show me your Top 5 , Fedi. These are mine right now.

  • Baldur's Gate III
  • Citizen Sleeper
  • Disco Elysium
  • Ultima VI: The False Prophet (with Nuvie to turn the viewport into a full map)
  • Divinity: Original Sin

This list is in the order of which I played most recently and - with the caveat that I'm only 64 hours into BG3 - these are honestly all perfect, no-notes gaming experiences for me.

@c0dec0dec0de@hachyderm.io avatar

Planescape: Torment
Deux Ex: Human Revolution (some part of me wants to say the first one, but the sequels play much smoother)
System Shock 2

Clearly, I’m not a form purist as I readily include immersive sims and roguelikes.

"Introducing Apple Pencil Pro. It takes the pencil experience to a whole new level." is one of those ridiculous sentences which make me laugh out loud .

@m does it feel like writing on paper? Because that’s what the folks selling the Remarkable 2 and other eInk notetaking tablets claim their pencils and pens do.

@jsr this is the moderate position, in case anyone is “concerned” for the poor billionaires. I think the conclusion is that they should not be allowed to exist.

Doing yard work with kiddo yesterday, he hopped into the wheelbarrow. So, obviously, it becomes a joke and not just a ride.
“Welcome to Wheelbarrow Airlines, where we have a better safety record than Boeing.”

@c0dec0dec0de@hachyderm.io avatar

He asks, “Where are we going?”
“I’m glad you asked, but Wheelbarrow Airlines employees are strictly prohibited from discussing the location or itineraries of customers with anyone, including customers.”

@c0dec0dec0de@hachyderm.io avatar

“Keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times. Wheelbarrow Airlines is not liable for any injuries by passengers who exit the vehicle while in motion. Note that the captain has put the seatbelt light.”
Him: “But there’s no seat belt!”
“Wheelbarrow Airlines is not legally required to supply seat belts.”

Is Air Tag supposed to be a pun on ear tag?

@c0dec0dec0de@hachyderm.io avatar

@MLE_online I wanted to find a picture online of someone wearing one as an earring as a joke, but instead found out Amazon has a whole “Air Tag Jewelry” category for tracing the movements of (supposedly) your kids, and just gave up.

@c0dec0dec0de@hachyderm.io avatar

@MLE_online I mean, I should really have known better.

I just saw a job listing for a company doing "home defense using AI and non-lethal deterrence"

The company's name? Sauron.

@c0dec0dec0de@hachyderm.io avatar

@foone it sounds like a whole new layer of horrible ambience to visiting the hospital. Devices just quietly muttering model numbers and instructions to themselves against a backdrop of cinderblocks painted in muted pastels and scuffed off-white tile.
