ted,

I’m ok with an article, but I much prefer it when someone accompanies it with a discussion in the body or comments.

ted,

The generative AI and NFT concerns were overblown. His generative AI comment was from his other game, AI art imposter which has AI in the title. For crypto stuff, it’s likely because his company just chases trends. Say what you will about that, but to me a trend chaser is more innocuous than a grifter.

I wish this were an article/column, but it’s a brief video if you want a journalist’s perspective: youtu.be/mYBN5Er8qOs

ted,

The article doesn’t whiff on this, it lays out why it’s too expensive.

  1. The strategy was to replace gas cars with EV 1-to-1 to solve the climate crisis and save the car industry.
  2. Gas cars have gotten bigger over the years because of marketing, bravado, “safety”, and regulation-skirting.
  3. EV-makers have largely bought into that and made all these huge EVs.
  4. Huge EVs require bigger batteries which are more expensive in raw materials and manufacturing.
  5. Huge batteries are heavy and dangerous.
  6. Range anxiety has encouraged even more oversized batteries on already oversized cars.
  7. Huge batteries are the main source of cost, meaning EVs end up being a luxury.

So, yes–they are too damn expensive, however a vehicle that meets our actual needs wouldn’t be, if it existed in North America.

ted,

I love my bolt, but most other EVs are not its size. Only the i3 and the Mini come to mind.

ted,

Range anxiety is what pushed me to buy a Bolt over other EVs, but I do find that practically I don’t need as many kms as it offers, especially in the summer.

Opinion: 400km is overkill for city driving in warm climates. Half the battery/range would be fine for virtually all daily use. I know everyone will anecdotally state their use case on why 200km is insufficient, but that’s basically what the article is saying is part of the problem.

ted,

The headline was the tip of the iceberg. What a fascinating article. Jumps from homosexuality is “unnatural” to it somehow eroding the foundations of our democracy!

Favorite unhinged quote:

Homosexual relationships are inherently unnatural… ultimately harmful and costly for everyone.

I want “ultimately harmful and costly for everyone” on a t-shirt.

ted,

I’ve had it at my job for a year and a half, it started after the Great Resignation took like half of our good staff.

The main problem is that it’s used as a scapegoat against any other improvement, e.g. hiring more folks, paying more wages, better benefits. Granted, I’d choose 4dww above a lot of those things, but it doesn’t feel nice that there’s a threat to lose it.

ted,

I did not see the last sentence of your comment coming. Caught me by surprise.

ted,

You can edit the title. Maybe

Signal fights disinformation about fake zero-day vulnerability

ted,

I would probably recommend “Just JavaScript” as a way to develop mental models of JS, then the TypeScript handbook to learn the core principles behind typings.

Not what you asked for, sorry, but probably where I’d start.

ted,

“Never got a straight answer” would have been perfect.

ted,

Bright Eyes released the albums “Digital Ash in a Digital Urn” and “I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning” on the same day. They sort of answer this question where you can tell the artist was split on two different creative strands.

ted,

Inaction against intolerance is a form of action, is it not? “Bee kind” is not just a call to not be mean, it’s a call to act in kindness.

I believe the poster is probably right in that it stirs more toward fostering acceptance rather than simply ignoring hate.

It’s not compelled speech, per se—Beehaw users need to have an active role in order to make it the kind of place people want to bee.

ted,

Would love an invite. I have wanted to dip my toes into private trackers for years.

ted,

All these years and I had no idea. Sid…duh!

Watched “Beyond Non-binary” last night and found it helpful.

ted,

Thank Netflix for pioneering another movement in streaming.

I don’t really care to blame Netflix for Disney’s actions.

Oh well, luckily the open seas won’t turn me away.

Pagat.com is a wonderful resource for discovering new card games.

Here are a few of my go-to:

Never heard of it, will be trying ASAP

ted,

Thanks for sharing. I see the version you linked referenced from here, www.pagat.com/combat/ interesting that they haven’t transcribed it.

ted,

My hot take, I feel like federation is almost not worth it for beehaw. It’s billed as a place where folks will be(e) kind with each other yet some rando can walk in from the street and start slinging garbage without care. I know mods could intervene but sometimes the line is not clear and there’s nothing stopping that person from creating another account on limitless instances.

ted, (edited )

Ok, cut the end off my reply. We need funding and initiatives that apply to society at large, not only those involved in the church.

ted,

Good. Got my first piercings and started a project to convert a bakfiets to an ebike with a Bafang mid-drive motor.

ted,

I don’t have any words of consolement, but I’d just like to say that you were one of the first lemmy users I found on beehaw and I’ve enjoyed your comments and posts.
