Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here, I don't know a lot about the great depression.

But I've been thinking about the great depression lately, for reasons that I assume are fairly self evident, and I'm thinking about the mechanisms that enabled it, and I'm drawing conclusions and modern parallels.

I don't know if these conclusions are right, or if these modern parallels are sensible. I don't know the inner secrets of the universe. These are just some things I'm thinking about.

Except the Great Depression also affected the UK (and, for that matter, the rest of the world), which was a more industrial nation in the 19th century?

Did you know: England is the least cool country in Britain.

Which makes sense in the same way Sweden is the least cool country in Scandinavia AND the Nordics.

Hot take: There should be a line break between } in an if statement and else {, so it's easier to get a comment in there.

This post is open to "how dare you" comments.

Having an AI ("Windows Recall" is enabled by default) that tracks every move you do on your computer and of course has no filter (Microsoft's own FAQ clearly states it will remember every password you type) is idiotic. But Tech bros are frothing at the mouth for anything AI so here we are.

Looking at the settings, it seems you can exclude certain apps, but you still have to customise it.

TBH, wouldn't this be incredibly dangerous in domestic abuse situations? Even if everything is done locally, an abusive partner could spy on everything!

Thanks, not come across that one before!

A section in the "build" section suggests that the GUI is optional, but if that were the case, how on earth would it be used? I can't find other information about this though...

Let's kick off the RFF mini call to action series.

Enthusiastic artists and friends have have already jump started the campaign for sorting another year of RFF infrastructure (~30%).

https://blog.radiofreefedi.net/2024-rff-infrastructure-fund

The community and our services continue to grow. Keeping the RFF tower broadcasting is a force multiplier for helping indie creatives promote their work and connect with support in we hope, a positive community setting for artists and listeners.

So, this was released today. My third stamp with Canada Post. Qarlinngua (The pants). And technically my second stamp with a family member in it, as the tiny figure in it is my son Travis. Now for one with Hilary in it.

I’ve very proud of all of these, beyond the cache. They are about my home, and family. And also my family has a long history with the Post Office, 101 years. My grandfather, father, and brother were all postmasters in Roblin.

I hear there's a photoshop going around of a cybertruck with faux woodgrain paneling on the sides, so this seems like a good time to remind people of this photoshop I did a couple of years ago.

ddlyh,
@ddlyh@topspicy.social avatar

@MLE_online The Cybertruck and the DeLorean have a lot in common (well, the shape, the mechanical issues, the finish and the fact they both seem to have been designed by a 9-year old) but while the DeLorean was used counterculturally and was a passion-project that bankrupted its creator, the Cybertruck is propping up a billionaire ao it's nowhere near as cool...

There was an idea that aired on the programme Genius around 15 years ago that was similar in some ways: have a duvet that wraps around a double-bed so that if one person hogs the thing and pulls it towards them, it just rolls around the bed and the other person gets the bit from below (if that makes sense). I thought that idea had legs, but AFAIK no-one has made one (at least not since it aired)...
