Who cares? Bethesda is long past the point of developing a good game.

They could take all the time in the world and it would still be shit because their formula for game development is pathetic.

I remember at the time, lots of people being on the fence and didn't know what to believe.

Where do you land now, after all this time?

Epistemology should be taught in primary school.

I mean that unironically. Learning about simple principles like non-contradiction and logical fallacies can help inoculate against so much bullshit.

With AI distorting the internet in every capacity, virtually everyone needs a new norm for evaluating whether their knowledge can be justified.

Back when I was maybe seven years old I went to this kids birthday party. I got him an ant farm with tubes.

Later on when all the kids were playing together in his room without adults, he pulled the roll of clear plastic tubing out of ant farm box, he shoved one end up his ass and then started sucking on the other end.

It's nice to know that he is still alive and tweeting.

I fucking hate DST. It's like dog diarrhoea splashed over a fat girls tiddies.

I know a lot of people hate it, surely it's time for this moronic practice to end.

So who do I email about this? Is it my MP?

Also, why?

Banned shows:

  • Paw Patrol - Seems soulless, I haven't watched much, but there seems something very wrong about it. Intuitively, I feel like my kid shouldn't watch it (though, I can could be convinced I'm wrong, if I am)
  • Cocomelon - objectively soulless - don't try to convince me that this show is anything but toddler crack.


  • Sesame Street
  • Bluey

Both of the above shows seem to me like they are made with care and have the best interests to teaching children good morals and language skills.

The city I live in, Port Macquarie, has awful cell phone reception basically everywhere (I'm on the Vodafone network).

Is this something I can bring up with the local council, or elected representative?

I can't believe I live in a city of 50,000 people and I'm unable to receive phone calls from my house.

I'll also argue you shouldn't skimp out on a motherboard.

I once owned an Asus Ranger VII. When I turned it on for the very first time, it lost its magic dust, and fried my RAM.

RMA found the MB was faulty, so they covered the RAM too.

This is from ASUS too, so I can only imagine how the chances of this sort of accident rises as you reduce the cost.

So, Elon dislikes that white people can't be proud of being white.

Why would a person of any race be proud of their race? Shouldn't people be proud of their own accomplishments, and those of the people they've helped?

I never really understood the rationale here. I support Pride Month for example, but I think the language is kind of wrong.

Shouldn't people be proud, despite traits which have historically been denigrated?

This is a serious question BTW.

Its actually worse than that. I PAID for Windows. If I paid for WinRAR they would stop.

Does HoYo ever repeat these kind of events, or is it unlikely that I'll ever get this lightcone?

I'm having trouble understanding all the benefits of BTRFS and how they'll apply to me.

Copy on Write and auto-compression seem like they will free up a bit of space.

What other practical benefits will I see from using BTRFS? Are there any noticeable performance benefits?

I use my computer to dual-boot. I don't need snapshots because I have a custom script for a fresh install. I use my PC for gaming and work. I've got an NVMe, two SSD's and one HDD.

Thanks in advance!

Linux: OK

User: Oh great, I downloaded a virus

Linux: Lol. You should have read the 2000-line python script on github before running it.

Fuck the electoral college too. Clinton had 3 million more votes, she should have won.

Reminds me of when Windows made a designated folder for game saves.

And then every dev decided to keep placing saves in the Documents folder or AppData folder

This is the logical fallacy: Burden of Proof

The burden of proof lies with someone who is making a claim, and is not upon anyone else to disprove.

Right now we've got share, bookmark, upvote and down vote.

But I share and bookmark less than I block communities (curating my feed), and hide posts (so I can refresh without scrolling past the same stuff).

The latter two are in the extras menu. It would be great if I could swap these buttons.

Thanks for all your work! This is my favourite Lemmy app!

One of the most annoying parts about That Place, and also Lemmy, is curating your feed by blocking communities you have no interest in seeing.

I am not a sports person, so I need to block each sports team manually when I see it, and also each individual sport. It would be so much better if I could just block an instance called "Lemmy.sports".

I'm glad Lemmy.nsfw is the default porn instance, I think we need to see more of this.

I know it's too late to change at this point, but I think a feature to catagorise different communities would be nice, so I could block "sports" if I wanted to.

Alternatively, maybe down the line see a feature to import a community to a new instance without users having to migrate manually.
