Definitely garlic mustard. Should be purple at the base of the stems, and the root will have a bit of a hook to it.

I spend a lot of time clearing this stuff in my wooded yard, as it’s highly invasive.

Of course they are - it’s very difficult for a rat to use a lighter.

I tried doing a TimeShift restore last week for another software issue, and nvidia drivers crapped the bed (again). Decided it was time to bite the bullet and swapped out my 1080 Ti with a 7700 XT. Did a clean install of Manjaro, and it was eerie how simple it was to get everything including Wayland to work. Should’ve done it two years ago.

Great article and explanation on why Proton and its components are such a game changer. Thanks for sharing!

Ironically, Nier Automata is only listed as “playable” on Steam Deck.

Study shows long-COVID hits hardest in Republican states (web.archive.org)

Odd that hanging out maskless in townie bars and churches back in 2020 wasn’t the best idea. Who could’ve possibly predicted that?

Don’t take your toilet shut-off valve for granted. Make sure it still moves regularly, preferably when you’re not millimeters away from getting shit water all over your floor and feet.

I just hated that Windows had become a privacy cesspit and I wasn’t afraid of breaking things in Linux. Also, I accept that sometimes you just have to format and reinstall your sins of stupidity away.

AFAIK, Milwaukee makes no claim to a particular style of pizza. We just make beer that goes damn well with any style - Lakefront Brewery’s Riverwest Stein being my top pick.

Stardew Valley: 1.6 ended up being a little larger in scope than originally planned. I'm done adding major new content to it now, though, and it's in a bug-fixing and polishing phase until it's ready. (twitter.com)

Nitter link: twiiit.com/ConcernedApe/…/1750962107682857258 (Now fixed!) Might have to use this link multiple times to find a instance that isn’t rate limited or check the wiki and change the url manually.

I just picked it up to play casually on steam deck, and it’s fun; in the same vein as Animal Crossing with a 16 bit RPG style. Plenty of depth and homestead building. You are correct that it’s a huge time suck, but unlike AC, you don’t have FOMO of missing days/events when you don’t play. It’s been a great de-stress distraction when I’ve needed it most.

I’ll line up to give you a high five on that! It’s a damn good feeling to hit that milestone. Great job!

How does Usenet content not immediately get DMCA'd into oblivion?

For instance, say I search for “The Dark Knight” on my Usenet indexer. It returns to me a list of uploads and where to get them via my Usenet provider. I can then download them, stitch them together, and verify that it is, indeed, The Dark Knight. All of this costs only a few dollars a month for me....

No expert, but here’s my quick and dirty version:

  1. Find an unlimited Usenet provider that works with your budget and location. Plenty of debate out there on which are best, and if you need a second pay-per-GB provider for filling in missing parts or not.
  2. Spin up SABnzbd+ or a similar Usenet client on a local PC/NAS/etc.
  3. the hard part - find a quality private Usenet indexer site that you can get an invite or has open registration.
  4. Download the nzb files for the Linux ISO that you want from your indexer and open it with your Usenet client. (There are ways to feed the nzb file directly to your client, but that’s for next lesson).
  5. Client looks for all of the parts listed in the nzb file on your Usenet provider, then downloads and unpacks them.
  6. Et Voila - Linux ISO appears in your downloads directory.

A VPN is probably unnecessary, as most Usenet providers don’t log who downloads which files. Also, you can often hit your ISP’s max download rate from your Usenet provider, and there is no “seeding” to worry about.

Good luck!

It’s likely faster - no waiting for seeds to connect and ramp up. I routinely see 900+Mbps from my provider from start to finish.

You aren’t at risk of exposing your true IP or downloads list to anyone but your Usenet provider.

Zero seeding required.

Older content is more likely to still be available in my experience (and not just with 1 dial-up seeder).

On occasion I have to go to private trackers when something never made it to Usenet, but it’s almost always something niche like an obscure out of print album. It cuts both ways though, and I’ve found some buried gems on Usenet that weren’t on any tracker.

The biggest downsides are the monthly cost of a Usenet provider, and a bit more technical expertise to host the NZB grabber.

I certainly had to fiddle with it a bit to start, but once it’s up and running it’s seamless and less prone to issues than torrenting IMO.

How this brainwormed shitbird won re-election in 2022 (when all other Wisconsin statewide elections went Dem) still baffles me.
