It's amazing to see how quickly the political right dumps their support for "law and order" as soon as "law and order" comes for one of them. 👀

Wait, what? Building now (e.g. since [1], which is in 6.10-rc1) requires [2]? At least when building the msm graphics driver? Uhh, interesting. 🧐

    @chris I've yet to see a MLS game in person, but we have a local USL team here and I get tired just watching them. It's non-stop action!

    I love the idea of zero commercials and you can predict how long the game will last.

    A survey by the Reuters Institute and Oxford of 12,000 people across 6 countries shows a huge gap between adoption and hype around generative AI tools.

    Just 1% using tools like ChatGPT on a daily basis in Japan, rising to 2% in France and the UK, and 7% in the USA.

    I loved Tom Clancy's books because they felt so well researched and the character development was deep. Has anyone else found other authors like him that they enjoyed?

    I saw a Microsoft ad earlier for and it showed someone turning five bullet points into a 35-slide presentation.

    Why not just present your five bullet points yourself? Nobody wants to look at 35 slides whether a human or computer made them.

    So much of the consumer use cases cause me to ask: "Does this really need to be done at all?"

    If you need AI to troubleshoot customer issues, perhaps you need to figure out why your customers have so many issues with your product.

    If you need meetings summarized, perhaps your meetings need to be fixed.

    I've found that getting an model deployed locally was pretty difficult, but then I gave a try last week. It's awesome!

    I was able to test out plenty of natural language questions and do a tiny amount of training on my home computer.

    I have plenty of complaints about the Democratic Party but, boy, I have no idea what the policy is on the Republican Party side.

    They seem to reject conservative and liberal (big L and little l) ideals equally. As Charlie Sykes said years ago, the right really has lost its mind.

    I have a mechanical keyboard with cherry mx switches and one of my keycaps (the "U" key) keeps flying off a few times per day.

    Does anyone have a good remedy? 🤔 ⌨️

    Spending on Social Security + Medicare exceed defense spending in the USA.

    At some point, we will have a reckoning here. Politicians keep kicking the can down the road.

    Selling a home right now in the USA sure is difficult. Property values are up, interest rates are high, and mortgage applications are very low.

    To make matters worse, more mortgages in some areas are "underwater" -- the value of the home is well below what is owed to the bank on the mortgage.

    If you use on cloud, amazon-ec2-utils is headed your way with some helpful udev rules and tools.

    Now you can manage block devices using the same "sdX" conventions used in the AWS console and API. 😉

    It's on the way to for users, too! 🥳
