The dying gasps of NY Public Library Social Media
  • He won by 7k votes in an election with 21% registered voter turnout.

    He won not by broad appeal but rather by apathy - his voters were engaged by fear mongering bait plastered on every news outlet about "crime" so they elected a goose stepping cop.

  • Newbie printer suggestions.
  • Looking at random Facebook marketplace postings I'd say you should go with a mk3s from Prusa. In NYC I'm seeing them for $350-$500 used and they're fantastic printers. Very much on the tool end of the tool:hobby spectrum.

  • Newbie printer suggestions.
  • Prusa mini or bambu are definitely common. Mk3(s/s+) will also be common, maybe even more so.

    Steer away from Creality if you want consistent and easy printing: it's a tinker machine.

  • What.
  • They process locally. You can watch their traffic: there's very little going out besides their own diagnostics.

    So you pay for the processing with your own electricity

    Putin pledges truce if Ukraine exits occupied areas and drops NATO bid, likely a nonstarter for Kyiv
  • Larger... And significantly less experienced.

    Which is what happens when you throw your special forces into the meat grinder, to the point that they've set up a schismatic faction in Kharkiv and are doing nothing more than attempting to weather out the rest of the war unmolested.

    And the western production lines are finally starting to ramp up. Russia stands 0 chance against a fully mobilized western military industrial complex.

    And every day Ukraine holds out is another day that Europe gears up.

    Putin's only hope is Trump.

  • The climate crisis is solvable, but human rights must trump profits
  • Of course we're to that: the US is doing very little to slow climate change at all, is anything it is accelerating it. The natural result of this will not be food insecurity in the USA: it will be famine in South and Central America. Climate migration will see tens of millions of immigrants at our borders.

    And the government has 0 intention of helping them. It military will directly cause a mass casualty event at the border before the turn of the century.

  • How are you parsing JSON on the command line?
  • I have a very handy command in my .vimrc for this -

    command! JSON setlocal filetype=json | %!jq .

    Anytime I'm in a json file that isn't formatted it's as simple as typing :JSON to have it all sorted.

  • Casper Van Dien is loving the Starship Troopers renaissance but still finds it mind-boggling some take it at face value
  • "I want to make a movie so painfully obvious in its satire that everyone who understands it lives in perpetual psychological torment inflicted on them by all the people who don't."

    • Paul Verhoeven, director of Starship Troopers

    The movie makes it clear that:

    1. The bugs were responding to human colonization
    2. Humans fired the first shots
    3. The government is lying to everyone claiming the bugs are mindless. They overjoyed shouts of the soldiers when they learn the opposite is true - is only because they learn that the bugs are terrified.
    4. The endless over the top propaganda is supposed to be a pretty fuckin heavy clue that it's a fascist state.
