  • US foreign aid package: how is it financed?

    I was just wondering how the US (or any country really) can pull out 100 billion on a given occasion ? Is the treasury just "printing" more money, or are taxes raised? (let's say 200million Americans are active, that's still $500 per person) . Or is it just debt passed on to future generations? It goes without saying that I am not fluent in finance

  • I fully agree on the rabbit hole effect of learning linux and selfhosting on your own... I have been moving baby steps for 3 years because it's rare to find even 2 hours in a week where I can do just that. Networking is just daunting to newbies imo

  • ✌️🖕🖕🖕👊 means nnnnno. Joke aside idk... It would be hesitation rather than stutter

    Cops Running DNA-Manufactured Faces Through Face Recognition Is a Tornado of Bad Ideas
    www.eff.org Cops Running DNA-Manufactured Faces Through Face Recognition Is a Tornado of Bad Ideas

    In keeping with law enforcement’s grand tradition of taking antiquated, invasive, and oppressive technologies, making them digital, and then calling it innovation, police in the U.S. recently combined two existing dystopian technologies in a brand new way to violate civil liberties. A police force.....

    Robust, yet compact umbrella?

    So I don't live in a hurricane area, but average storms got the best of my two umbrellas that I thought would withstand the wind. One samsonite, one Taiwanese brand (rainbow) that had advertised it as storm resistant. It is true that both would "pop out" in case of strong winds, which is to prevent the immediate break.

    Still, facing the wind (a sudden burst as I was walking past a tall building) has bent the ribs irremediably.

    Any suggestions based on actual experience?

    Thank you

    List of 2FA enabled services/websites?

    Is there someone somewhere curating a list of websites/apps/services that propose 2FA?

    I have only a handful configured in my authenticator, mostly when such services proactively propose to the user to activate 2FA.

    I would like to have more, but digging in security parameters to find out is not very productive, especially since these parameters are often named a bit differently, or buried in varying submenus.

    An online search mostly proposes comparison of 2FA auth apps.

    Is it available for lemmy by the way?

    Smart android keyboard respecting privacy?

    Hello, could someone recommended a keyboard for android that is a bit smart in predictive typing? I used to like swiftkeybefore it was bought by microsoft. Not that swiftkey itself was much better but I was not so privy conscious at that time.

    I recall swiftkey would require access to your texts and emails to train itself to your predictions.

    Is there some similar foss keyboard where all the data then remains local?

    I know swiftkey has an incognito mode, but then it stops learning from your typing.
