    Betteridge's law of headlines is an adage that states: "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no." It is based on the assumption that if the publishers were confident that the answer was yes, they would have presented it as an assertion; by presenting it as a question, they are not accountable for whether it is correct or not. The adage does not apply to questions that are more open-ended than strict yes–no questions.

  • Elon Musk drops lawsuit after OpenAI published his emails | CNN Business
  • The emails appeared to show Musk acknowledging the need for the company to make large sums of money to fund the computing resources needed to power its AI ambitions, which stood in contrast to the claims in his lawsuit that OpenAI was wrongly pursuing profit.

  • That's going be some explosive diarrhoea.
  • brb, I'll be laying a fat man

  • "make capslock an additional Ctrl" option was removed in the latest update
  • iirc one program (a game, I think) didn't work properly when I had nocaps: the keyboard settings would allow the keybind, but it didn't work in-game

  • "make capslock an additional Ctrl" option was removed in the latest update
  • But that does make caps work as ctrl. What's the behavior you want?

  • "make capslock an additional Ctrl" option was removed in the latest update
  • try changing your ~/.config/kxkbrc:

    [Layout]
    # ... 
    Options=caps:ctrl_modifier
    # ...
    

    that's the file KDE's keyboard settings change.

    Also:

    • caps:ctrl_modifier means "Make Caps Lock act as an additional Ctrl modifier, but keep identifying as Caps Lock"
    • ctrl:nocaps means Ctrl position -> "Caps Lock as Ctrl"
    • ctrl:swapcaps means Ctrl position -> "Swap Ctrl and Caps Lock"
  • omg KDE if it ain't broken, fix it until it is?
  • I can confirm this breaks on v24.05.0

    probably a bug

    I'm a bit surprised something like this wasn't caught by tests

  • What programming language ruby, python og javascript?
  • I'm writing a web app on Python + HTMX. Little to none javascript involved.

    If it's something simple you can check out FastAPI. For more complicated projects involving data models and relationships, check out Django.

  • the fear of missing out a better compression
  • yes, and you still need zhe mnemonics

  • the fear of missing out a better compression
  • I use the command line every day, but can't be bothered with all the compression options of tar and company.

    zip -r thing.zip things/ and unzip thing.zip are temptingly more straightforward.

    Need more compression? zip -r -9 thing.zip things/. Need a faster option? Use a smaller digit.

  • What is the best way to store data for exceptional cases among nested objects in arrays in JSON?
  • IMO if you're even slightly concerned about storage you should be using a DBMS instead of JSON files. They will handle sparse data, compression, and fast access better than a text-based file format.

  • Plasma 6 Wayland + NVIDIA

    I've just upgraded to Plasma 6 on EndeavourOS and X11 works, but booting on Wayland via SDDM gives me a blank screen. The display enters power saving mode and switching to a TTY doesn't wake it up.

    Anyone else having this problem, or with a workaround suggestion?

    NVIDIA Driver 550.54.14-4 Operating System: EndeavourOS KDE Plasma Version: 6.0.1 KDE Frameworks Version: 6.0.0 Qt Version: 6.6.2 Kernel Version: 6.7.8-arch1-1 (64-bit)

    Uplay games on Linux

    I'd like to try the new Assassin's Creed and Avatar, but they're not on Steam - which is how I play almost every other game on Linux. I know I might be able to install Uplay games using Lutris, but I'm not sure if the experience is as smooth as Steam + Proton.

    Do you have any experience with Ubisoft + Lutris? Is there an equivalent to ProtonDB to have an idea how well a game runs?
