I need to wake up early ( lemmy.world )

All the vibrating alarm clocks I could find do not sync with your phone, and have to be set manually. I thought about getting an Arduino, but then I will have to build the whole thing by myself. The only logical conclusion I could come up with is to get a programable vibrator. But most of them are either very expensive of look...

Most modern ones last long enough and charge fast enough that it's barely ever been a problem. I just pop it on the charger when I shower at night and when I'm getting ready in the morning. It always lasts the day pretty easy for me

POV means nothing anymore

bdonvr ,

Maybe but then the photo doesn't really match the text

bdonvr , (edited )

Of course. If someone said "POV: a truck driver" you'd expect a scene looking out from the driver's seat of a truck.

In this photo what does it mean? Clearly it's not her point of view. Her mother's? But that's not what the text implies.

For some reason on TikTok especially people just slap "POV:" on absolutely everything.

Literally nothing about this meme would change if they left off POV. It's utterly meaningless when used like this.

Yes even Lincoln. He was brutal with the indigenous Americans just like all his contemporary genociders.

And even on the subject of slavery, he was basically forced into it. He also really hampered radical reconstruction which sought to actually change the power structure, take land from slaveholders and give it to the freedmen... Went way easy on former Confederates and let them slip into (subdued, but still significant) control. He wasn't as bad as his successor in that regard but he's no role model. Read "Black Reconstruction in America" by W.E.B. DuBois if you're interested.

He was always ambivalent about abolition. Not a fan of slavery, sure. Maybe. But he made it clear over and over and over again that he would much rather keep the country together than free any slaves if he could.

He also MANY times said he wouldn't even know where freed slaves fit into American society, proposing they be shipped off to some island to colonize so he wouldn't have to deal with them.

It was only at the insistence of his generals that it was a military necessity or they'd lose the war that he freed some of the slaves.

What the fuck are you on about

bdonvr ,

Is it the best or is it just the one you use? Have you used both? Recently? Immich has changed a lot in the past year or two.

IMO just the fact that it's a NextCloud thing kinda sucks

Pepsi 1893 Ginger Cola is the greatest soda known to human kind and I am absolutely devastated by the fact that I can't get it anymore.

I like ginger so strong my nose burns thanks

I'm not a big AI guy but it's really not quite like that, models do NOT contain all the data they were trained on.

Edit: I have no idea what's going on down below this comment

bdonvr OP ,

Yeah well uh, Trump would've sent 1.2bn

bdonvr ,

You're so close to being cool sometimes

bdonvr ,

I see you post a lot and I think db0 is definitely cooler

oppose what we can, how we can

We gotta go so far past picking between these two garbage choices

bdonvr ,

I mean, you can get the Pi to use EFI and just boor generic images.

The switch is fun to tinker with if you have a hackable one. I wrote a guide on XDA on how to install Android on a Switch. I didn't actually do any of the hard work to port anything or anything technical, just wrote the guide. I didn't expect it to become like the guide but it did. I saw it used by Linus Tech Tips once.

I kinda felt bad for never updating it. I dunno if it still is up to date enough to still be useful.

Israel orders people in more areas of Gaza's Rafah to evacuate ( www.reuters.com )

JERUSALEM, May 11 (Reuters) - Israel called on Saturday for Palestinians in more areas of Gaza's southern city of Rafah to evacuate and head to what it calls an expanded humanitarian area in Al-Mawasi, in a further indication that the military is pressing ahead with its plans for a ground attack on Rafah....

I'm pretty sure in game billboards with real ads has been done already

And like, in sporting games having ads where the real stadiums have them isn't a huge deal to me as long as they don't interrupt or put focus on them.

Though I'd prefer mock ads GTA style if you need ad space for realism purposes

I work 60 hours a week without any overtime (yes I'm hourly) or sick time.

Hell I get my vacation paid lump sum once a year so I don't even get PTO time to use.

Shit should be illegal

In the dispatch office of a trucking company.

Having a CDL and once in a while taking loads that need covered (once a month?) I fall under overtime exemptions for truck drivers

Ehhhhhh I wouldn't say brand new hardware. A lot of times Linux still needs a few months to properly support a new Gen of graphics cards or processors

Though it generally at least works which is a huge improvement over back in the day

bdonvr ,

Nvidia has always been a pain and that's really Nvidia's fault not Linux's

bdonvr ,

It's okay it shows it for you because you already know it, it's censored for me

bdonvr ,

Not quite, this could be exploited by telecom providers when using mobile data. Also using a VPN for networks you DON'T control is one of the more popular uses of the things

bdonvr ,

have to make accommodation for their Secret Service detail

Would they? The SS are beholden to protect former presidents but are state prisons beholden by law to let them?

bdonvr ,

I did 100 then an 80, only because someone set fire to my workplace and they told us insurance was covering overtime.... I basically just sat at the entrance and turned people away.

bdonvr ,

Are there any topics that are majorly split? I'm pretty sure just like on reddit when two subs had similar names one eventually gets bigger and dominates. I don't see how it's going to be much different here.

bdonvr ,

It was never justified and this didn't start that day

bdonvr ,

That really depends on where they're living

AM radio law opposed by tech and auto industries is close to passing | Ars Technica ( arstechnica.com )

A controversial bill that would require all new cars to be fitted with AM radios looks set to become a law in the near future. Yesterday, Senator Edward Markey (D-Mass) revealed that the "AM Radio for Every Vehicle Act" now has the support of 60 US Senators, as well as 246 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives, making its...

And at night the way the signals bounce they can be heard for a thousand miles or more. Due to interference only some stations can run full power at night while most have to turn off or turn power way way down.

Occasionally it can be heard across continents even

What no gunshot in a pit for her son?

bdonvr , (edited )

Yeah sometimes animals need to be put down out in the country.

But she just completely failed to raise that dog to do what she wanted, completely impatient, then decided the only recourse was to shoot it.

Then just decided while she was out killin' to shoot a "mean" goat too? Like if she hadn't decided to kill the dog she wouldn't have killed the goat? Bloodlust is what it sounds like.

bdonvr ,

Obstruct? No. Not even think about? Yes.

I'm working 60 hours a week and also wouldn't mind if someone burned the place down

Fuck working this much, it shouldn't be normal.

TSA will send you back to the ticket gate if your ID doesn't match booking details.

American operates more than 49 flights per week from Miami to Havana!. Also Miami to Santiago de Cuba and Varadero 5 days a week, and Santa Clara, Camagüey, Holguín 7 days a week.

Southwest operates flights from Fort Lauderdale to Havana 21 times a week. (3/day), additionally once daily from Tampa to Havana (twice on Saturday).

Delta flies Miami to Havana twice daily

United flies Houston to Havana once daily.

Source: I hope to visit soon and researched

Of course none of these are on Cuba's airline Cubana as I assume the US doesn't allow it.

The Havana to Buenos Aires route is also served once weekly by Euroairlines.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)

Great for kids, and the dry sarcastic humor is great for adults. All around great movie.
