WalrusDragonOnABike,

So whether hospital has vowels depends on what country you are in and if you have insurance? /J

I'm returning my Lenovo laptop that gave me tons of compatibility issues and getting this Dell XPS 13 instead. Thoughts? (www.bestbuy.com)

I’m going with this Dell and returning my Lenovo Slim 7 Pro. In my previous thread saying I switched to Windows I read that Dells offer great compatibility. I ordered this Dell XPS 13 and plan on going with Pop OS. Thoughts on this? Good choice?...

WalrusDragonOnABike,

There are other contributors (szsz has submitted a PR this week, for example), but its all reviewed by ernest AFAIK.

I prefer to think of it as a feature and would prefer if it didn't get fixed.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

Many states have allowed people who are not constitutionally eligible to be president to be on the actual November ballot while others do not (Colorado is one that enforces it at the ballot level). These have been candidate for minor 3rd parties that may not even have enough ballot access to win even if they won all the states they were on the ballot or write-in candidates for, so it hasn't mattered. But such requirements could alternatively be enforced at the electoral college level or congressional level. Iirc, the 14th amendment does not make it clear at what stage to act. I think the November ballot is a reasonable place.

Given primaries are basically private companies just planning on who they want to try to put in the federal ballot, the state not interfering seems pretty reasonable to me.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

Are you a fan of ratchet and clank btw? Are 3rd person platformers the only good genre and are games since PS2 all trash?

WalrusDragonOnABike,

Why would the Democrats themselves label him genocide Joe?

WalrusDragonOnABike,

When I say democrats, I meant the figureheads: state and federal politicians, DNC officials, media outlets with strong ties to the democrat party, etc. Not people who vote for democrats. Or even those who run as democrats in minor local elections (elections in major cities like NYC I'd count as being the same level as state elections). My bad for not communicating that.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

Don't provide weapons to either of them?

WalrusDragonOnABike,

The US should stop providing the US with military weapons based on their history of use in the middle east as well.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

You mean an organization that seems to primary exist as an opposition to those so-called "adults" meddling in the middle east? A lot of their other broad geopolitical strategies, like funding the Taliban, also has been a great success in the region. I'm sure they will do so much good for the region and won't do more to empower terrorist groups like Hamas for their own personal gain.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

I'm pretty good at marking emails as unread. Several times before replying and/or taking action based on them.

Yeah this hurt. When I became homeless I ended up vanishing from everything. Had no Internet access or anything. Was just gone. Always checked in with people. Was there when needed and then I can’t contact anyone for a month. I was worried about my friends and worried they were worried about me and that I couldn’t tell them...

WalrusDragonOnABike,

I have a friend I haven't seen in over 10 years. He live less than an hour from me. I still try to remember to message him happy birthday on steam (but forget some years) and sometimes we'll do some catching up.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

Bloodborne was developed for pc first and then ported to PS from my understanding. Some of the wiki images are from the PC version of the game, submitted by one of the devs.

Or I'm thinking of another game.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

I didn't mean a PC version was intended. Even if there was a fully-polished PC version, keeping their console exclusives to increase people buying into the system can be worth keeping it exclusive for a company.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

If you're able to get enterprise ssds, you could get 16tb ssds... But no clue what minimum order sizes are like for that kind of thing. But of you wanted to use 16tb ssds instead of buying a house 100% down payment, that's an option probably.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

But how much is 5 100TB HDDs?

WalrusDragonOnABike,

Celeste speedruns are fairly competitive from my understanding. I have not watched the top players, but in general the Celeste community seems pretty good from the little indirect interactions I've had with them. But it's solo play and leader boards, not real-time matches (although those probably exist too, but you still don't interact with the other players).

Curious if that direct combativeness is part of difference. Of course another important difference is the Celeste community is fairly unique given its trans game status. But I don't think that's necessary to build a good community: smw kaizo isn't inherently trans, but the community decided years ago that it wasn't going to tolerate transphobia, for example. But its extremely non-competitive imo.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

The SMW kaizo community has several prominent trans contributors and notable members (Shoujo and shovda being probably two of the more public ones, both participating in the relay race at SGDQ 2022, which also had at least two trans creators). I'd include Maddy among the notable member, but that's a relatively recent thing with her release of Super Sonic Saves the World World and Sure Shot (a level of which was in the SGDQ race and was co-created with another amazing member of the community). Unfortunately it wasn't always that way apparently (the SGDQ 2019 relay race did include someone who was later shunned by the community for platforming transphobes apparently).

Also, the kaizo community and Celeste community have a lot of overlap given they're both tough platforming games for lots of community-made content.

Its also just small enough that everyone can know most other people who are part of it.

WalrusDragonOnABike,

What percent of facebook users would document their content and report their removal to HRW? 1000 reporting to HRW because their comments got removed from facebook seems funny. I certainly wouldn't think to report technology@lemmy.world's mods to a human rights organization if they removed this comment or banned me for posting something pro-palestine on another community.

    Glad to hear the tables are remarkable, but how are we supposed to find them if we don't know what they're called? /j

    WalrusDragonOnABike,

    Courts enforcing plain laws is gamesmanship?

    If the RNC decides to unilaterally change their candidate to Haley or DeSantis or another candidate just because Trump is removed from a swing state ballot, I feel like Trump won't admit defeat and his supporters will just write him in or just not vote. His supporters are already distrustful of organizations like Fox. Winning any elections ever would become much more difficult for a long time.

    WalrusDragonOnABike,

    Some 3rd parties have ran ineligible candidates. If they actually won, the electors wouldn't actually cast their votes for them, but the votes are counted and tallied AFAIK. Given these are parties that make the Green Party and Libertarian parties look like first parties, they've just been ignored.
    For example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%B3ger_Calero

    Notably, Colorado is one of the states that wouldn't let Calero on the ballot because he was ineligible.

    WalrusDragonOnABike,

    I think that’s true for many cishet men, atleast 3 of my close friends tend to choose female characters too.

    A lot of trans people find out a lot of their friends were trans as well, even if none of them knew that they were trans when they became friends.

    Not going to say there aren't cis men who tend to choose women, but of the 3 cis people I know, one teases me for choosing female character and clearly likes styling their male characters, one always chooses masculine characters and clearly cares about styling their main characters, and I think the last pretty much always chooses male characters and he's got a bit of a femboy side.

    WalrusDragonOnABike,

    The VA was my excuse for picking the female character in Genshin. Couldn't get why my cousin didn't choose her and I made fun of him for choosing the male character.

    WalrusDragonOnABike,

    Watching detective conan in america sounds expensive.

    WalrusDragonOnABike,
