Andor was amazing. I love star wars, there was a lot of iffy stuff, Mando was pretty good, but damn did Andor knock it out of the park.

I left the shitposts and it’s been much more fun. I’m there with you, I deal with anxiety. I’m an informed voter, I keep up with things, but when I’m scrolling and wasting time I don’t want to be bombarded with how terrible the world is. I just want to see cats and chuckle a bit.

They said full announcement this summer, so this is encouraging! It’s completely 50/50 right now. Either it’s going to just flop and that’s it for Bioware - or they learned their lesson and it’s going to rejuvenate the brand.

Agreed, but I’ll give it 50/50. I’m not going to call it dead before anyone even sees it, but I’m not expecting Inquisition levels either.

Take it from experience @vestmoria this advice is true. Going to HR means that they’re going to take action on the one causing the most noise, and when you go to them at that moment, that’s you. That may sound discouraging, but that’s what it is. Something like gossip is something HR will be willing to ignore. By going to them you are creating the most noise so it will only adversely affect you.

It doesn’t matter if you’re right. It doesn’t matter if you’re a great employee. You are officially making negative noise, that’s a liability for the company. They’ll smooth you over, tell you there’s a plan, but it’s officially on record that you’ll speak up while others quietly work, and in the corporate world that’s a black mark.

Take it from me, just silently start looking for new work. Right now you have all the time in the world, search around, be picky, get something better. Leave them behind you. That’s the only real way to propel your career forward.

By work quietly I mean they don’t go to HR when there are problems. I think you misinterpreted me though, I’m saying if it’s bad enough you want to go to HR, then it’s probably bad enough where you could just look for other jobs.

I see both sides here.

On one hand, you do have some good ideas in there, and I understand wanting to write them down and push for them.

On the other, I’m also a developer and too many issues can become spammy, and every day at work I mark issues as “not prioritized” or “won’t do”. They may be valid ideas, but I’m heads down on other more critical work that I need to focus on now.

I think it’s important to remember that the devs are two devs, they don’t have a project manager/PO to regulate issues and prioritize them. It’s also an open source project, so a more valid use of time would be developing features yourself or gathering people who want to implement them and opening pull requests, rather than opening a ton of issues.

Also, I think you’d get things across the finish line if instead of opening 20 issues, you focused on one, maybe two, and pushed those really hard. Prioritize the issues yourself. Get those one or two done, then focus on the next. If you catapult 20 over the wall then it just looks like 20 issues and none of them are particularly important. The phrase “If everything is important, then nothing is important” definitely applies.

That being said, I’d definitely appreciate more transparency from the devs on the roadmap they envision, issues they want to focus on, and if they have capacity for us users to vote on our most critical features.

Only correct answer here. First define “soul”. So far no human has ever been able to define it, so how do we know if we have one?

I have a docker image that’s fairly out of date now, can anyone recommend a good docker image they enjoy?

Corporate America can absolutely be a cult. I’ve jumped around a fair bit, but you can always tell who the lifers are. Think the company is their savior, love the CEO even though they only met them once, go to all the functions, it’s sad to me. Most of those lifers were making much less than me because I jumped around to bump my salary, they are constantly passed over for promotions because “now just isn’t the time”, and usually they ignore their home life and never take PTO.

Interesting, I have one sitting collecting dust, what is this homebrew? What does it do?

Okay good someone else immediately thought this too. If anything making sci-fi more popular has increased the number, and there’s a lot of chaff for sure, but there’s a lot of really good stuff too.

Unfortunately most TVs only have HDMI, which is what I want to build my ChimeraOS build for…

That makes sense. I’ve done both team green and red on linux now, Ubuntu and PopOS. My personal thoughts:

NVidia for compute, hands down, it wins. Any AI or compute, you can’t compare. But the drivers are worse and a pain to install, and conflicting versions left and right and it’s just hell. PopOS saved me by having all of that set up for me.

AMD GPU drivers are still not great if you’re running a non “official” distro, but I eventually got it to work. AMD definitely feels more “stable” over NVidia. Way less fiddling with Steam and games too, most seem to “just work” compared to fiddling with env variables with NVidia.

Pros and cons. Personally, I’m leaning Team Red right now. They’re really bringing it. I don’t see any reason to spend more on an nvidia card unless you are doing massive compute loads.

Did you get the version of pop with the Nvidia drivers baked in?

Sorry then, unfortunately I can’t help, it’s worked on my machine but wouldn’t know where to begin to help debug :(

They have a few distros hardcoded in their amdgpu install script. I had to go add pop into a line with debian|ubuntu|pop like that so it wouldn’t kick me out of the script.

@scrubbles@poptalk.scrubbles.tech avatar

I had the nvidia flavor of pop first, and had to purge everything nvidia. Afterwards all I can say is that I got a black screen of doom after purging them. All that repaired it was installing amdgpu… so… idk. Halfway to just reinstalling it after that ordeal, I’m pretty sure X is confused upside down and sideways

As an instance admin I get to see people’s deleted comments, they are just marked as deleted. Every time a post comes in like this I like to check a users history.

Yeah dude, you deserve the massive downvotes.

If you’re walking around town and smell shit everywhere you go, maybe you should check your shoe.

From your comments you aren’t being outright rude, but you are stirring the pot. I didn’t feel offended, but you are being very flippant and uncaring about other people’s views, and demeaning people for having those views.

For example, if someone lays out an opinion that is thought provoking and they tried, one response would be

Well, I don’t agree, but I understand.

The feeling I get from your responses are more like

Lol yeah whatever dude

Which to me would be a downvote. If you want respect you have to give it first, even when you disagree.

Basicallly the only vialable nitter altnerative I’m aware of at the moment, biggest downsides being you need a twitter account and you can only access it through android, but it does offer the abillity to see your feed in an rss style, aka no recommendations, which is very useful if you only need to follow a few remaining...

aaaand they blocked it.

I get what they want to make, but the second it becomes popular they’re going to do something that disables it. See all of the iMessage workarounds. Plus… it’s twitter. It’s dead folks, just accept it

There are private companies that do recycle plastic film. I’m in the PNW and I use Ridwell, and it’s helped a lot. I still aim for Reduce first, try to not use plastic when possible, but with food that’s difficult. Reuse obviously, and then Recycle as my last resort, and Ridwell is good with that. If you’re in the PNW and are interested, I think I have discount codes since I’m a member, just DM me if interested

Pacific Northwest - Seattle/Portland, etc. So I’m guessing no :)
