Thanks, I was confused because I thought “not supporting Taiwan independence” means being fine with China annexing Taiwan. In both versions of the readout, Biden wants to keep the status quo in Cross-Strait relations, but this is phrased differently in each readout.


It’s good that China and the US keep up the communication. However, I would like to see an US version of this: Did Biden really “reiterated that the one-China policy of the US has not changed and will not change, and that the US does not support ‘Taiwan independence’.”?


I switched from QWERTZ to a custom QWERTY layout but I fear that switching to something else would make it awkward to use computers other than my own. I also use the Vim keys hjkl in many applications.


Codeberg is based on Gitea, which closely resembles GitHub’s interface. Contributing to projects hosted on Codeberg is just as easy as contributing to GitHub projects.


You can still get 112% but you will miss out on the Grey Prince Zote boss fight.


It is proven that some mathematical questions can never be answered. This is known as Gödel’s incompleteness theorem. Veritasium made a nice video about it.


I also get “502 Bad Gateway” every now and then. Today it happened with https://lemmy.ml/post/330390. Nothing is printed to the Firefox console (except for Quirks Mode because of missing <!DOCTYPE html> of course). Reloading the page fixes the issue.

pdftotext is the standard tool to convert PDFs to text. Not sure how lightweight it is but it’s provided by Poppler, together with other amazing utilities such as pdfunite.


You guys are overreacting. DDG said they would only down-rank sites associated with Russian disinformation. It’s normal for search engines to downrank low-quality sites such as SEO spam.


Here’s a screenshot. I don’t use a statusbar, gaps or anything fancy, but river does offer these features.

The text editor is Kakoune, the color theme is gruvbox.

I have aphantasia but managed to follow the moves in the video and notice the pin. Aphantasia is the inability to create mental images in one's mind. You can check for yourself if you have aphantasia by [imaging a ball on a table](https://www.reddit.com/r/Aphantasia/comments/cpwimq/ball_on_a_table_visualization_experiment/). Do you have aphantasia? Can you play blind chess?

High-quality video by an underrated channel.




The game is actually not bad but the gameplay is boring and repetitive: You just spam attacks on the enemies and then heal up by resting.


I only ever wrote manpages with roff. I don’t like LaTeX but at least I can be sure that there exists a LaTeX package for everything I ask for. If I used roff, I would fear that my problems can’t be solved by googling and that I would need to switch to LaTeX anyway at some point.



How to use yt-dlp instead of yt-dl with mpv
I use RSS feeds and mpv to watch YouTube without visiting youtube.com. This post shows how you can configure mpv to use yt-dlp instead of the abandoned youtube-dl.



The RSS feed is actually “advertised” in the HTML source of the Signal blog:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS Feed" href="/blog/rss.xml" />

Sadly, most browsers don’t show this metadata to users anymore. The Firefox extension Awesome RSS changes that.


You couldn’t be further from the truth. I do like single-player video games (especially indie games) but competitive video games usually favor the players who practiced the most whereas the board and card games above have a low barrier of entry. My interest in Minecraft faded away over the years.


mpv is a fast and minimal general-purpose media player. It has thumbnail support via an external script. Playing a video backwards does not work well but you can seek forward and backward (even frame-by-frame) using customizable hotkeys.


In a voice call with three friends I regularly play:

game themes
Love Letter deduction, luck
Coup bluffing
Codenames language/words
Categories aka Stadt Land Fluss aka Tutti Frutti aka Jeu du Baccalauréat geography, words
Poker luck
skribbl drawing


In short: If 10 billion people were doing a speedrun every second for 100 years you have 1019 speedruns. The odds of Dream getting that lucky are 1 in 1022 so there is something fishy going on in his copy of Minecraft.

However, I totally recommend watching the full 40 minutes. The whole story is quite insane.



Eye-opening video which explains Nintendo’s new design philosophy by comparing Origami King, Breath of the Wild, and Odyssey to older Nintendo games and similar games from other publishers. The title sounds more negative than the video actually is.


Video in which Matt Parker explains Benford's Law and why it cannot be applied to elections

Bash one-liner challenge
Solve exercises by writing Bash one-liners. The server actually runs your commands and checks whether the output is correct. If you click on *View Solutions*, the correct commands other people entered are sorted by character count. So if you want, you can take the optional code golfing challenge. I gained some knowledge from solving the challenges and looking at the solutions. Mostly you will use `find` and `grep`.
