I was scheduled to work later than usual yesterday. Everyone forgot I was there and left. I got locked in, set off the alarm when trying to leave, and had the call the manager to come let me out.

I started Trails in the Sky on PSP and haven’t been able to stop playing trails games since. Not the best in the series, but definitely where you want to start.

I stay largely uninvolved with social media apps outside of this fediverse project, but why is it that bytedance must divest TikTok while meta is free to keep Facebook and Instagram? Aren’t the risks to mental health and security the same?

Damn. I wanted this to escalate a little first.

I made an mbin account to jump to whenever kbin stops functioning, which has been more frequent than I had expected. Each time I end up subscribing to more and more magazines over there to reach parity with my kbin account. Mbin hasn’t been enough of a carrot on its own to make me want to switch completely, but it’s always been working fine and even slightly easier to navigate. I’ve just got this lurking hunch that kbin will eventually end up like Artemis, the way it feels ignored at times.

I can’t even entrust my video games to a touch screen.

Sony pretty much nailed it on their first try with PSVR.

It’s too late for Apple to close off macOS (and they’ve tried), so I think the goggles are meant to replace it altogether with an inherently closed platform. I hope Apple ends up having to open that platform up as well before it’s too late.

AI-generated content and other unfavorable practices have put longtime staple CNET on Wikipedia's blacklisted sources (www.tomshardware.com)

In the wave of AI controversies and lawsuits, CNET has been publicly admonished since it first started posting thinly-veiled AI-generated content on its site in late 2022— a scandal that has culminated in the site being demoted from Trusted to Untrusted Sources on Wikipedia....

CNET: this parrot says a lot of things that seem accurate! Let’s have this parrot make articles for us!

Android Microphone Snooping (lemmy.world)

So I had a verbal conversation with a coworker yesterday and now I’m getting fed very specific ads. No possible way it’s accidental. I have most of the microphone access to apps limited, I have Google assistant turned off and no VPA setup in my home. I use a Oneplus 9 pro, does anyone have recommendations on how to further...

I learned from a student who worked as a data analyst (in advertising) that tailored advertising is more nefarious than you think it is.

According to Facebook, everyone with an Instagram account uses threads (because they pretty much automatically signed them all up for it).

Cue American conservative mouth-pieces growing hate-boners over VPNs in 3… 2…

Even as an avid Apple user, it just comes off as either sheer incompetence or disingenuousness to hear Apple wax such poetic over compromised security from alternative store fronts when macOS is just sitting there, having been doing it fine for generations.

I’m almost expecting Apple to deliberately self-sabotage iOS in the EU somehow just to make a point.

Eggyhead,

Eh, I still think iPhones are pretty great and serve a purpose, but I do think apple has built their ivory tower way too high. I’m all for reining them in a bit.

I’ve never heard of this game, but I’ve enjoyed every telltale game I’ve played. I wishlisted it and will be looking for steam deck performance reviews.

I can see why your friend would assume you could hack their phone based on how specific these steps are.

FFVIII was the first mainline FF game I played after exposing myself to the franchise with Tactics. I was new to turn based systems, so I never picked up on the criticism. I was blown away by the presentation, fantasy and adventure of it all. The gunblade was about the coolest thing a kid of my age could have been exposed to at that time as well. Right now I’m big into VII for obvious reasons, but I really want to replay VIII.

I’ve had this wishlisted on my steam deck for a while now. I didn’t even know it was coming to PlayStation until it was mentioned in the DF video.

As the parent of a 13-year-old, that wouldn’t work either. They’d just pout and tell you that you think they can’t do anything right.

What you described just now is known in teaching circles as a “fixed mindset”. A person decides they can’t do a thing because that’s just how things are. No two people are the same, but you might be able to foster more of a “growth mindset” by continuing that conversation…

“No, don’t sell yourself short. This is just something you’re not good at yet. Come on, let’s see how we can do this better together. It’ll only take a minute.”

Yeah, I was that way with many things as a teen. I still get that way as an adult. I don’t like cooking because I’m intimidated by the effort, and I often tell people I don’t cook well. It’s a fixed mindset. However, I have a student from Poland. She took a family pieroski recipe from her grandmother, translated it into English, and gave it to me because it’s her favorite dish, and she thought I should try it.

Obviously, I had to do it while my wife took pictures. And you know what? They turned out pretty good! In fact, I’d like to do it again, and I think next time I can do them even better.

I think the biggest challenge to fostering a growth mindset is overcoming reluctancy to just try. As a teacher, it’s something I try to listen for from my students.

Oh wow. Jumping straight to the ad hominems, are we? I usually only get that from people who really want to be right and don’t know how.

Not until you explain yourself. What’s up with the attitude?

What’s an Incel?

Which is…?

Edit: eh nvm. I have no idea what you’re on about, and clearly neither do you. Go ahead and keep stereotyping people if it makes you happy.
