Reminds me of Russia before WWI began. They realized they had fallen horribly behind the rest of the world in terms of military technology, so they called an arms limitation treaty conference where they pushed for basically every country in the world to agree to stop inventing any new weapons of any kind.

That's pretty vague. What is "other technology"?

It's 100% the same guy. The account creation lines up with the last comment on his last account before it got banned, and he's already revealed a number of identical personal details as well as speech patterns.

He is filled with so much negativity and he absolutely loves it. He wants to proudly declare "hey everyone, I'm a terrible person" and then when people say "you don't have to be" he says "but I don't want to be a better person, I like being terrible"

Unfortunately this is like his 10th account. He keeps getting banned for a combination of trolling, incel-ism, and ban evasion. All this really illustrates is that the fediverse has a fundamental problem with bad actors. If they want to, they can always create more accounts and continue their bad faith use of the fediverse. A serially depressed NEET troll with too much free time and nothing better to do can always outrun the mods. There's no way of IP banning since federation is a thing.

Given how hostile most streets are to cyclists, this is basically like the suicide booth in Futurama.

Is that an otter in your pants or are you just happy to see me? 😏

Community is better. But Michael Schur gets his revenge because The Good Place is better than both.

Conda environments can encapsulate more than just Python packages, it brings the pip/venv model to the ecosystems of many languages (R, Go, etc.), and does so at the user level rather than in a folder for one project. The other Anaconda stuff is pretty useless IMO, but Conda is exceptionally useful. Although I would echo what the other commentor said that the mambaforge version is even better than vanilla miniconda

It's ExoComics, that's the same webcomic.

 

I wasn't 100% sure this was a problem, as I had noticed a lot more people commenting what appeared to be static image responses to comments. But there's this thread: https://lemmy.world/post/16932878 which makes it easy to be sure that in fact they are definitely GIFs, and they don't play when you click on them. It just opens the first frame of the GIF like a static image.

 

I thought something was causing people to double post more recently, but after testing voting on some examples, I'm pretty sure posts are getting duplicated by the app.

The game seems to downscale and blur all textures, so the only thing that looks sharp is text and 3d models. Unfortunately some of the UI text seems to actually be a rendered texture, so the text of some UI elements can look blurry and pixelated. It also seems that the blurring is a live process, not a preprocess. This means that a lot of the UI elements are constantly flickering on top of being blurry.

Overall I love the game FWIW. I picked it up this week and love the gameplay loop. I'm just amazed it gets the green checkmark despite having such glaring UI issues with the default graphics settings (which are ostensibly tailored to the Deck)

Can anyone tell me if this can be fixed?

Edit: I had half-rate shading turned on and didn't realize it. I'm an idiot.

 

I live in Canada. My girlfriend is Chinese (also living in Canada), and while we are able to communicate via SMS, her mobile carrier isn't the best, and so there have often been issues for us with regular texting. She expressed a strong preference to use WeChat, at least as a backup option for when texting fails us. While I have some pretty significant reservations, it's not the hill I want to die on. So my question is: what can be done to use WeChat without compromising my whole phone? I'm okay with it if our conversations aren't private, but I'd like to know that I'm not giving unfettered access to all of my phone's systems and data to the CCP. What can be done to limit the reach of this ubiquitous app on my device?

Hi there, I'm not a member of this community (only a very sporadic user myself) but figured it would be a good place to ask this question.

The TLDR version is: My lady friend OD'd on edibles and is still a bit sick a day and a half later, is there any good remedy to help her get back on her feet?

Longer version below:

The girl I'm seeing recently had a downright awful experience with weed. She hasn't ever used before (she tried smoking once but didn't inhale properly so no high), and I expect she probably won't try it again any time soon.

On Friday night she was hanging out with some friends and decided to try an edible since her friends were having some. Her weed literacy isn't great, and she didn't know that edibles hit different, nor that they take a while to kick in. She was also on an empty stomach since we had a dinner date in a couple hours and she often skips lunch at work, and on top of all that she's on the smaller side, so less bodyweight.

She only had a third of what her friends took, but ended up being super unwell. I'm talking throwing up multiple times, bad vibes (crying, saying she didn't want to go to sleep because she would die in her sleep), and acting irrational (kept trying to leave her friend's house because she didn't want to be late for our date).

Her friends texted me from her phone as it was happening because she was insistent on leaving and they wanted to let me know it wasn't happening. I told them about the thing with black peppercorns and apparently that (plus telling her not to worry about standing me up) helped enough that they were able to get her to fall asleep.

She ended up sleeping and being nauseous for basically the entire day yesterday and I only heard back from her this morning.

Anyway, that's all just the loredump. My actual question is, is there anything that can be done to help someone feel better when they are recovering from OD'ing on edibles? She's still not feeling 100%, probably from throwing up and panicking so much. I know for someone who is badly hungover from alcohol there are all sorts of folk remedies that at least work as a placebo if not as an actual cure. Just wondering if there's some equivalent for weed. I want to do something nice for her since I think she must feel awful about missing our date.

 

This started a few days ago. I've been getting texts from friends with iPhones in the wrong order, and seemingly they are getting mine late. So I texted a friend whose grandmother was in the hospital yesterday, and her conversation with me looked like this. These texts from her arrived around a minute apart each. I think the intended order of them is fairly obvious. It's worth noting that every time I send her a text, the read receipt line under the text shows a little clock for a few seconds or more, which I think means it hasn't been recieved by her phone yet. Also worth noting that I had a conversation using the same stock messaging app with my mom yesterday who has an android and I don't think we had any such issue, but that may have actually been RCS.

Anyway, here's the example. It's not the only example I've had with her or with another iPhone-using friend in the past couple days.

Me: Hey, how's your day? Any updates about your grandma?

Her (a few hours later): I feel relieved

Me: does that mean you got good news?

Her: how was your day?

Her: yeah

Me: my day was good, (proceeds to describe what I did that day)

Her: my family feels relieved too

Me: what was the good news? Your grandma is okay?

Her: Hey $bionicjoey, I didn't get much sleep last night but I just heard that the doctors say my grandma is out of danger.

Edit: I texted her last night saying something weird was going on after that exchange, and then this morning at about 7:30 AM I texted her saying "let me know as soon as you get this". She just texted me at 2:30pm saying "I just am just now seeing your texts"

 

Back in my days on Reddit, my favourite feature was the ability to hide individual posts if I had downvoted them. It made it easy to hide things which I didn't want to see or felt shouldn't be seen
