      Oh! Man I’m the definition of stupid right now and I’m sorry.

  1. Dipshit of the Month goes to a group of researchers for getting their institution, The University of Minnesota, banned from contributing to the Linux Kernel.

     

    image.png.66a222dc47e2d908d0f4de321a2a9189.png

     

    This is based on the following post in Tech News, courtesy of @Tensimeter:

    In summary...

    1. This project broke human experimentation laws by making test subjects out of the community of Linux Kernel contributors (numbering in the thousands) without their consent.
     

    2. This research project was horrendously outdated and unnecessary, as the flaws in the open-source software model have been widely known, discussed, and addressed since the 1970s.  Thus, the study and its findings were redundant and unoriginal.

     

    3. Since this research was carried out in confidentiality, and relied on acting in sneaky and underhanded ways, their bad kernels are still lurking out there somewhere.  A lot of time will be spent/wasted on finding these kernels and fixing/removing them.

     

    4a. By doing this bogus, malicious research, the research professor and graduate students involved have been wasting valuable man-hours and university funding on this project.

     

    4b. The fact that a lot of research has been suspended as a result of this project will undoubtedly be a money pit for the university, as well.

     

    5. When confronted about the project by "Greg Kroah-Hartman, the maintainer of the Linux Kernel's stable branch," the researchers gave him ridiculous amounts of sass, painting the researchers as disgustingly arrogant.

     

    I honestly feel bad for the University of Minnesota, as unknown sums of people will now be paying for the arrogance of a few bad scientists.  Having said that, this Dipshit of the Month award, as well as the repercussions they received for their actions, were well-earned by these researchers.

     

  2. "So, you're saying that you just wasted countless man-hours, burned tens of thousands of USD (or worse), broke human experimentation laws, and screwed over thousands of people for the sake of being 'Captain Obvious'???  And then when somebody called you out on your bullshit, you just gave them Cardi B levels of sass???"

     

    These researchers are a disgrace to their institution on multiple levels...

     

    Yo, I think we have a new dipshit...

  3. On a scale between "stupid" and "asshole," I think the person is closer to "asshole." Even very smart people can be blinded by their own arrogance, causing them to make a fool out of themselves. Furthermore, the conclusions of the study weren't original, as several of us have already said. For every hour they worked on this, this person wasted their university's money on this "research" AND their salary. They should be fired.

      @Red :) The YouTube App no longer lets you download stuff from content creators' status updates.  So, I needed to screen-record it just to have it at all.

      That is one of the dumber changes Google has made to YouTube recently, imo.

      yeah, it's sad.

  4. Wow...

    M1 beats an i5-9600K and kicks my i7-8750H's ass!

    Intel likely has no answer for this.  No wonder Apple's moving on from them!

      If they can make one that beats a 9900KS in multi core and single core while still retaining the power saving and heat benefits then they’re good.

  6. Great for casual, "general populace" users.  But I'm a meteorologist.  The Microsoft and Apple Weather apps are LAME to me! 😝

     

    I'm also not a fan of news apps, in general.  I cycle between the NYT, CNN, FOX and one of my local news websites to get a bit of everything and I'm happy enough with that. 😛

     

    At least this new feature can be turned off...

      thats because I changed my pfp to something I didn't like and my current PC doesn't have any of my old pfp.

      So thank @Eschew

  8. I just ran an Ookla Speedtest. I got 338Mbps. The WiFi router is in the basement and I'm on the 2nd floor, so I can imagine it could be faster if you're closer to your router. This thing will not disappoint you! I love it!
  9. "Fetish" isn't a new term, right?

     

    My mom legit didn't know it was a sexual term until today, when she said my sister's friend had a "frog fetish." 🤦‍♂️

      Fetish doesn't technically have to be sexual, afaik, but it's most widely used as a synonym for kink.

      I know that it in theory has multiple meanings, but I've never seen the term used in a non-( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) way.

      This is probably why nowadays I find calling one's father "dad" better than "daddy", especially with strangers

      I cringe now when I hear people call their dad "daddy" I physically cringe. It just seems so wrong when it shouldn't.
