  • Employers boost recruitment of temporary foreign workers, despite softer labour market
  • This is how you keep productivity low. Instead of spending money on equipment and training to get Canadian workers to do more per hour, hire TFWs to do less. Extract the difference in profit.

    Oh and the TFW program undermines the general public's trust in the skilled immigration program since many people aren't even aware there's a difference. They see immigrants come in, keep wages low, push housing up (all else being equal), they conclude immigration bad. Anti immigration agitators don't even need to work to create propaganda, they can just point to the obvious.

  • Framework won’t be just a laptop company anymore
  • The next product should be a sustainable, not publicly traded company. If investors take majority ownership and IPO, Framework's perceived mission will evaporate quickly in the inevitable search for ever growing profits. I sincerely hope Nirav and Co actually give a shit about the repairable product and retain majority shares. If not 👉👌...

  • Yeah, this has been used in automotive for a long time.

  • Linux is now an option for safety-minded software-defined vehicle developers
  • As someone who's working with Elektrobit and software produced by them, both are hot, steaming garbage. I'm not envying anyone who swallows this bait. Mildly put, Elektrobit underdelivers both on time and quality of their commitments. I hope at least they're cheap but I don't have visibility in that area.

    It seems both produce nearly identical grind profile. The DF54 is slower.

    I'm considering replacing a Sette with a DF54.

    Does anyone have the DF54? Impressions?

    Backing up Immich

    The backup doc from Immich states that one should use Postgres' dump functionality to backup the database, as well as copy the upload location.

    Is there any counter indication to doing this instead:

    • Create a dir immich with subdirs db and library
    • Mount the db dir as a volume for the database
    • Mount the library dir as a volume for the upload location
    • Backup the whole immich dir without dumping the Postgres db. (Stop Immich while before doing this)

    Hidden cameras reveal how big banks are upselling you (Marketplace)

    I'm not old enough to know, have Canadian banks been less profit driven and corrupt in the decades past?

    I've seen none of this from the credit union I switched to a few years ago.

    Also that was a pretty shitty look for the finance minister dodging the CBC. She could've stopped and spared a few words, even if just lip service. Perhaps as a finance minister, she's got the Big 5 permanently in one of her ears.

    Change is in the works that will give Canadian consumers and businesses significantly more control over their financial data, in what’s known as open banking.

    A long-awaited change to Canadian banking is coming. What to know - National | Globalnews.ca

    > Open banking works by giving consumers the option to share their banking data with other firms. The most common use is granting access to budgeting or money management apps and companies, so that a customer can pool different bank accounts and credit cards into one place.

    Ah yes, finally what we've been missing in our financial system! 🤭

    Importing Google Photos Takeout to Immich

    I'm trying to decide how to import my Google Photos Takeout backup. I see two general ways:

    • Import it by uploading it to Immich (immich-go, etc.)
    • Add it as an External library

    Has anyone done it one way or the other? Any recommendation, pros/cons or gotchas?
