  1. One of those new Cooler Master mice Dmitry showed off is pretty tempting tbh...

      Hmm, not really my style but at least they got the USB C part right.

  2. Don't forget that Iwiński was actively lying about how well the game ran on last-gen consoles as late as a few weeks before launch. He was one of the leading forces in misrepresenting the state of the game on last-gen consoles, likely because 41% of preorders were on them. Don't let him get away with that.
  3. First the removal of the headphone jack, then that honestly ugly camera bump, then the removal of the SD card and now removal of the only thing that made Samsung Pay more "worth it" than Google Pay. Oh, and also copying Apple and not including a charger so they can pretend to care about the environment. Hey, how well did things go the last time Samsung removed a bunch of features?
  4. I was gonna be disappointed too because I'm also on Z370, but I don't even have an MSI board. I'm on ASRock!
  5. Galaxy S21 has no SD card support, nor does it have a charger in the box. I hate phones 😄

  6. Cherry Viola is actually decent? Huh, didn't expect that.

  7. They didn't go that far. If they did then I'd begin pushing harder for internet literacy classes being mandatory.
  8. Thinking I'm gonna switch back to Nvidia, but keep around the RX 5700 for eGPU stuff

  9. I've seen screenshots on Twitter of sitting US congresspeople asking people on Parler for their personal info so they can "stay in touch", which actually resulted in people posting their private info. This includes email addresses, full names and even street addresses. I'm obviously not going to post them here due to the posts containing the info uncensored, but considering how much of a shitshow of a site Parler was I am not all that surprised this happened. However, I guess that's how participants in the January 6th insurrection were added to "no fly" lists so quickly. They broug
  10. So whatcha saying is, the only private info obtained was what Parler users posted themselves in response to US representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and whoever else asked for it (likely due to a lack of tech literacy and knowledge of what is and isn't okay to post online).
  11. Honestly the way how Parler was run gave me the impression that the entire thing was a massive shitshow. The fact that they don't actually delete anything despite asking for sensitive info including state issued IDs just confirms it.
  12. tfw an optional addon for KDE that's been also adapted for GNOME made entirely by volunteers offers better, more consistent functionality than a built-in windows feature developed by microsoft

  13. Mulling getting a VR headset so I can join my boyfriend in VRChat

  14. I miss the days when you'd buy a thing online and then like a week later it'd just show up at your door

     

    Am I a boomer already? At 27?

  15. The title made me think Nvidia finally fixed some longstanding bugs with their drivers, like the card idling at 1GHz in a mixed refresh rate setup. Disappointed to learn it's not that, but instead some security fixes. Poke me when Nvidia does that.
  16. Didn't know every desirable job is everywhere ever, and you don't need to do things like move across 27 states or to another country to get a job. News to me. I am. The game is "billionaires experience a different system than we do". My oldest sister's wedding cost us about as much in alimony as how much a Tesla sales rep makes a year. The median income for my area is $10,000 more than what Tesla pays then. Not even the top end "not someone who actually works on the assembly line" wage of $50k is enough to comfortably rent an apartment anywhere.
  17. The only wages I'm seeing that are relatively decent are for manufacturing the actual vehicles. Everyone else makes $27k - $58k a year. Not really what I'd call "paying well" honestly, but perhaps I shoulda addressed that in my post as well. I, uh, do tend to forget things.
  18. 1. Were it so easy. 2. If Tesla was such a great place to work at then reports like this wouldn't exist. Salaries don't tell you everything. Wonder why he and other billionaires get away with it?

      I remember taking an MS class in college. During the Excel test the teacher specifically said not to use Comic Sans. Naturally, my buddy did, and when she was checking over his work she immediately asked why he did that when she said not to. He said she thought she was joking. She was not, and he got 50% 😂 It took him forever to finish too. I had enough time to draw a picture of a king sitting on his throne with a sword in hand by coloring and resizing different grids.

  19. Taking advantage of labor while paying starvation wages to people working for you and making them work in abysmal conditions at a Tesla battery sweatshop in Nevada is not by any stretch of the means a good thing. It does create a job, but you grind the worker to dust instead, treating them as a resource to be exploited. Also, Musk has never taken a risk once in his life. His parents were emerald mine owners in apartheid South Africa. He started life with a silver spoon in his hand. He has never known struggle or how to take risks. Instead he's just giving us Trains But Shittier, a
  20. I don't know how to explain to you that exploiting the labor of others for your own gain isn't good, especially during a time when millions of people around the world are struggling to make ends meet.

    So I learned how to use fwupdmgr to update the Thunderbolt firmware on my T480 (which I noticed wasn't on 20.00) without using Windows earlier. My ThinkPad is now safe from the Thunderbolt controller bug that affected the xx80 generation. And Windows 10.

  22. He was born to a family that ran an emerald mine in apartheid South Africa and made most of his money through government subsidies and exploitation of others' labor. Do not let him cosplay as a "self made" billionaire when he has never made any money without exploitation and reliance on the state. He didn't even found Tesla, he just stole the title from Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning.
