Watch: Adobe angers artists with new Photoshop terms (techcrunch.com)

Artists got an unpleasant surprise when they opened Photoshop this week, as they were shown a pop-up window asking them to agree to new terms of service. Among the changes: Adobe now says it has the right to access customers’ content through “automated or manual methods.”...

I love GIMP and I will die on that hill

Thank you for saying that out loud. I always find the GIMP hate to be phenomenally ridiculous. I love GIMP too.

What you are not considering is that silicon crystallisation and the PV panel manufacturing process in its entirety are very resource-intensive and energy-intensive. The longevity of solar panels is one of their core properties that contribute to their high degree of sustainability.

How can that be legal? Many European countries have the secrecy of correspondence enshrined in their constitutions, any EU legislation on that matter would doubtlessly be challenged in court in those countries and become ineffectual.

Looking to get into android development

I want to start learning android dev and I understand that I’ll need the android sdk and cli tools. I want to try it in a kvm because even though it is open source, I would like to keep it separate from my main system. Which distro and vm settings do you suggest I use? Any other tips or your experience with android development...

Debian-based distros are usually the ones with the most official support and documentation with regard to Android.

Windows -> OpenSUSE Tumbleweed -> Ubuntu -> Debian GNU/Linux -> EndeavourOS

Currently using Debian and EndeavourOS in parallel as the distributions I have settled on.

Time passes more slowly for you than for an outside observer, e.g., if you are moving to some place, for someone on the outside, your journey could take decades, while for yourself only minutes pass.

“Einsteinian” physics do unfortunately not arise from quantum physical principles, which is the major flaw in our current understanding of the universe. Quantum physics is very applicable to the microcosm, but cannot accurately solve for the macrocosm, while it is the opposite for gravitational theory.

Ubuntu is not controversial because it is a “noob distro”, it is controversial because the company behind it (Canonical) is turning almost as bad as Micro$oft.

Look at Deng […] he improved the lives of 10^8^ or 10^9^ people

Lemmy.ml? Makes sense. Your supposed hero “Deng” was a maniacal tyrannical dictator that was responsible for the deaths of countless students at the Tiananmen Square Massacre. He was an offender who committed crimes against humanity and he should be treated as such.

Edit: Changed introductory wording to be less belligerent. I am sorry if I have caused a significant level of offense.

Just wait for the nuclear shills to flood in and claim that nuclear fission is a sustainable and necessary form of power generation. Some people claim that nuclear fission is a sustainable and necessary form of power generation. It is not. Uranium extraction devastates entire landscapes, the construction of nuclear power plants is too expensive (even for SMRs, as the article explains), ergo electricity prices will climb, it is a hugely wasteful use of so many tonnes of concrete (concrete manufacturing is heavy on the environment too), it creates waste that will still haunt us for hundreds of thousands of years (finding geological structures that are guaranteed to be stable that long is difficult), and relative to the initial construction and set-up effort, they don’t provide that much energy. We already have methods that can provide us plenty enough electricity that are entirely sustainable by leveraging large-scale atmospheric aerodynamics as well as the largest nuclear fusion reactor at our disposal (the sun). There’s simply no need to go nuclear.

Estonia | The Digital State (youtu.be)

Most states rely on paper bureaucracy to ensure that the state can function and provide services. Paper bureaucracy has been part and parcel of how we maintain states and corporations since the Chinese invented the first paper bureaucracy systems of management 3000 years ago. But as you all probably know, bureaucracy kinda...

As long as this digital infrastructure is developed by the administration itself, I find the idea of a digital bureaucracy great. But relying on proprietary products would undermine its purpose, imho.

That’s true. In a sense, few of Silicon Valley’s software “innovations” from the 1990s and 2000s provided anything that was of actual value. Much of it simply enabled an even greater degree of mindless consumption of entertainment content.

TIL in the Carboniferous Period, no fungus existed to decompose trees. They just grew on top of each other up and up.

The weight of the trees was so great that the ones on the bottom got squished and became coal. That’s where coal is from. Bonus fact: the whole time this was happening, sharks were hunting in the oceans. Sharks are older than trees and fungus!

A lab, manufacturing capabilities for any kind of object and material, and possibly several companions. Plus a mineral-rich planet (best case would be inexhaustible) as well as a star. And a ship, preferably FTL, to change location after the star nears the end of its life. Of course also copies of the entire cultural database of humanity (books, songs, movies). Pets. A thriving ecosystem on the home planet.

Sand is not per se the raw resource for integrated circuit production. More specifically, it is silicon dioxide, also referred to as quartz. Quartz is often found in sand, but sand does not necessarily include quartz. As far as I know, the quartz for semiconductor lithography isn’t usually extracted from sand, but rather from proper pit mines.

They knew of the product, but were not informed when it was released. The title of the article is a little misleading.

Episode Discussion | Star Trek: Discovery | 5x10 "Life, Itself"

LoglineSeries Finale. Trapped inside a mysterious alien portal that defies familiar rules of time, space, and gravity, Captain Burnham must fight Moll – and the environment itself – in order to locate the Progenitors’ technology and secure it for the Federation. Meanwhile, Book puts himself in harm’s way to help Burnham...

Definitely a fabulous ending, but the tie-in with Calypso only made me more curious about what all that is about. Maybe there’s potential for a follow-up show now that the 4th millennium has been thoroughly established.

That would be very difficult though for a site as large as the Internet Archive. They will most definitely have intricate defense strategies and lots of bandwidth. Cannot really imagine a teenager to be capable of that unless their parents are billionaires.

This is called Geoengineering, and we don’t need volcanoes for that. Current approaches mostly consider injecting sulfates or other reflective aerosols directly into the atmosphere to influence how much solar radiation reaches the Earth. The principle is the same as behind volcanoes. This method is in fact already being employed and has been used in the past, albeit only for regional climate engineering.

Why don’t we do this to stop climate change? As you yourself kinda noticed, the consequences could be very unpredictable and dangerous because the effects are difficult to model. However, maybe after everything else has failed Geoengineering could be a viable option.

Logging into a non-indexible proprietary service just to be able to read the documentation definitely does not contribute to accessibility.
