I hope they short it into the sub-basement. I hate those twats, especially when I modded /r/amc, but I might just have to cheer for them if they can snowball the Reddit IPO. It would be spectacular.

I'm tired with all this Big-Phone-Elitism

I'm someone with relatively small hands, plus I want my phone to be on the smaller side since I prefer to use my tablet/computer/tv to watch content. But this trend where many manufacturers tend to keep futures away from smaller phones to drive people to bigger phones is driving me crazy and really makes it hard for me to buy a...

I have big hands and I still can't stand these 6"+ phones. They don't fit in a pocket worth a shit and they're fragile as hell.

I had a Samsung S4 Mini, it was my favorite phone. Fit in a shirt pocket, I kicked that thing down ladders and on gravel, never broke the screen. Everything else bigger has had a broken screen within a year.

Not sure about straight docker run commands, but if you're using docker compose you can add restart: unless-stopped or always to your docker-compose.yml to have it come up on boot.

Because Assange kicked the DNC's dog. The Republican's were going to hate him no matter what because rationality never figured into their "my country, right or wrong" stupidity, but apparently because he released the DNC's executive corruption and didn't pull something out of his ass regarding the oTheR SidE, he's obviously a russian asset.

ikidd ,
@ikidd@lemmy.world avatar

Because he didn't release something (dunno what because that's never been specified, but he should have pulled something out of his ass, I guess) about the other side, therefore his leaks regarding the DNC make him a Russian asset.

Give your head a shake.

If anyone should be facing a firing squad for putting people at risk, it would be Scooter Libby and Dick Cheney long before Assange. There are verifiable deaths from those leaks, yet nothing even close to justice has been visited on either of those traitors.

The theory is that the issue price is less than what the stock will be at shortly after IPO. That's why principals get excited about IPOs. You're issued some vested shares and often have the privilege of purchasing more shares at the issue price before launch, then it goes up, you profit.

Of course, sometimes that goes hilariously wrong, see Facebook.

Affordable Android Excellence: Best Smartphones Under $200 in 2024 (www.gizchina.com)

I have a 4a and need to upgrade, and have the same size consideration. Are there any downsides to the 6a that you know of? I have to be able to put GrapheneOS on it as I won't use stock android. Seems like it's on the device list.

Ubuntu is no magic bullet when it comes to nVidia. A lot of derivative distros like PopOS do it better anyway. And non-ubuntu OSs seem to have less problems anyway, IME. Manjaro and Nobara seem to get a long very well with nVidia cards.

I run that as part of my Calibre docker compose, and when it downloads a book, you don't even save it locally because it'll go into Calibre if you set the folder watcher in Calibre to a shared bind mount where the temp file gets dropped.

Combined with FBreader and Calibre OPDS service, and baby, you got a stack.

That's still a good machine, I'd get some more RAM and make a proxmox server out of it. Even with 8GB it's usable for a few VMs at a time. Use a single disk ZFS pool when installing it.

I just do not understand using a corpo solution over a better OSS solution. You know where it's going to go in your bones, yet you sign right up for another 10 year run before you change all over again. Like these people were just waiting for another terrible option to show up before they switched.

Using Voice Assist pipeline via the HASS cloud subscription works a heck of a lot better than locally. Locally it takes about 15 seconds to respond, via the Nabu Casa server it's about 1 second. I've considered dedicating a box to the containers it's instantiating to do this to get faster response.

Idk if any LLMs are set up to operate on anything except GPUs, its an interesting question.

ikidd ,
@ikidd@lemmy.world avatar

The M5stack atom echo. The hardware is the same, but if you change the pipeline in the back end between the two, that's where the delay happens. You can run the Whisper stack locally or on another box locally but I think you'd want a good GPU on it to offload the NL processing to. Which is probably what happens when you're using the Nabu Casa pipeline.

Passkeys might really kill passwords (www.theverge.com)

Passkeys: how do they work? No, like, seriously. It’s clear that the industry is increasingly betting on passkeys as a replacement for passwords, a way to use the internet that is both more secure and more user-friendly. But for all that upside, it’s not always clear how we, the normal human users, are supposed to use...

VMware's support was excruciating anyway. As a VCP, I learned to just figure it out on my own or work around it, they never fixed a single problem or bug I encountered.

Proxmox is quite simple. As a former VCP, I find Proxmox more intuitive to use.

If you need specific help with Proxmox and/or ZFS, you might also look at posting on https://www.practicalzfs.com
