This person is a butthole. DOn’t listen to them.

But water is delicious though

I don’t have any. Yet to try one of them. I was looking into trying Artefact or Bucket of Bolts both by Jack Harrison since they seem to be shorter and writing focused.

Guy got a bit too real with the “everyone has something to hide part”

Where does the file go if it is named with a.txt?

This technique is usually used with checksums because they have a predefined length and alphabetic characters can be safely casted to lower case. How do you want to differentiate between upper case and lower case here asauming that you are using a file system that is sensitive to it?

The devs have actually spent a lot of valuable time making the website isomorphic. Because that it can be rendered server side and can be crawled for search indexing.

Yeah kinda. Some fuel trade took place via rupee-rouble exchange. But using the Yuan is not something I had heard of before.

Regarding Instagram’s methods for limiting access to non-logged-in users, I have been able to work around them to some extent.

If you click on a post while viewing a profile and Instagram asks you to log in, you can instead right click on the post and open it in a new tab.

If you scroll down while viewing a profile and Instagram asks you to log in, you can use uBlock Origin’s zap tool to remove the pop-up message and dark translucent background. The should load normally when you scroll after that.

I think settler colonialism plays some part in it too. For example, cultures that have organically developed over several hundred years as opposed to cultures that have developed over thousands of years. But I haven’t thought about this particular topic much so I could be wrong.

I think Instagram just goes the extra mile to make sure that alternative frontends don’t work. Bibliogram breaks A LOT though I still thank them for their service.

Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu if you like sci-fi. It has a bit of the “chosen one” aspect but it’s not as bad.

The idea of profiting off of nothing but ownership is deeply rooted since it forms the foundation of politics and economy almost all countries in the world right now. Renters paying rent to the landlord is to some extent as natural as gravity for some reason. No one knows or cares how it came to be like this and it’s seen as something that you must just live with.

I’m not sure about Apple these days. I have an iPad Air 4th Gen and it can be charged by my phone’s USBC charger. Do iphones not allow this?

What happened to the Nvidia source code that was being leaked?
I think I read about it last month but since then there hasn't been any mention of it. Wondering what came of it.

Margit, the Fell Omen
What a ridiculously difficult boss. I currently have a full melee build and I had to use every cheese in the book to beat him.

Elden Ring reviews are absolutely nuts
OpenCritic and MetaCritic both have ridiculously high aggregate scores for it. Early reviews tend to generally be higher but an average 97 score from 95 critics is probably the best I have ever seen. I am reading that it is easier to get into compared to other From Software titles. When playing the network test I didn't get this feeling. But either way I highly recommend giving the game a try if you haven't played a Souls game before. It is an entirely new story and the lore from what I am hearing is very rich. And the gameplay is tight as always. If you don't want to buy you can even pirate it once it has been released provided your PC can run it. I don't think it is using Denuvo.

Has anyone turned off autocorrect on their phone?
Using autocorrect makes typing much easier on phones. Not only you can write words you don't know the spellings of correctly, but it also compensates for mis-hits on the tiny keyboard. But one day I had to write something using a pen and paper and I realised that I had forgotten how to spell common words. For example I had no idea if it was "absense" or "absence". Then I turned off autocorrect on my phone so that I can relearn how to spell words. I have gotten a lot better since then. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

New gameplay footage from Game Informer
Not watching it myself. But wanted to share if anyone else is interested: [Link to video](https://piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=1zTkMV2gfmU)

Says game size is 60GB for PS4 and 80GB for PS5 respectively. Feels good man. Personally I am disappointed the game isn't 300GB of content but I will live.

The recently discovered RCE in Dark Souls 3 only affects PC according to Lance McDonald
~~He says:~~ > ~~The RCE exploit recently leveraged publicly in Dark Souls 3 is not able to be leveraged on PlayStation 4, 5, or Xbox consoles. Neither will the console versions of Elden Ring be able to be exploited. There is no vector to either trigger it or to gain elevated remote privileges.~~ ~~Some people have been exhibiting paranoia that the exploit could mean more delays. I was already skeptical of such fears but this news from Lance is another good sign that the game will release on time.~~ ~~Tweet has been deleted :))))~~ Tweet is back?

Announcing /c/EldenRing
A subcommunity for the upcoming game if anyone is interested.

Welcome to Elden Ring
In case anyone is interested in this game, I created a subcommunity to discuss the game with fellow lemurs.

A question about the Great (American) Resignation
I see this being mentioned a bit in American media. I understand why this can happen. Capital does not want to pay living wages to the working people and workers do not want to work for pennies. There is no such thing as labour shortage, only capital not willing to pay. But if people are just walking away from jobs, how are they affording subsistence? I have seen restaurants being closed because they don't have workers. So it is not only people who can afford savings who are quitting. I can't phrase the question very well but the bottom line is this: I don't understand. So any insight you might want to share is welcome.

What software/library to use to write a bot that snipes a PS5 as soon as it is available for preorder?
I have tried to use fast fingers to preorder a PS5 as soon as it restocks and have failed. Now I want to turn to the dark side. What do I use to achieve this? I know python and shell scripting but know nothing about web development.

Give me your favourite easy dishes or recipes
I am absolutely garbage at cooking nor do I have the desire to get better at cooking intricate dishes. But I still prefer making food at home as much as possible. So I was wondering what your favourite easy dishes are. I don't value taste too highly. But I prefer that have relatively moderate to low carb content. But don't wanna be picky so anything goes. Please feel free to share.
