Satanists to volunteer in Florida schools in protest at DeSantis religious bill
  • Love it, thank you so much for the giggle.

    As someone brought up initially in a primary RC school I always find the fact that while they had a top notch reputation for giving you a "better education" than general comprehensive schools really ironic because their science dept actually taught me, that there are no fairies in the sky and it's actually where we end up, as Earth burps 🌨️

    I for one welcome these chaplins, elves, and umpa lumpas in our RC schools. Gives a bit of diversity.

  • Privacy on Cars. How to stop data collection and transmission?
  • I wonder if what you could do is look into a Stingray device and plonk that in your car to make it to connect to that instead of local cell towers?

    edit: whoa, I just looked at the prices of them. Surely there's something a clever Trevor could put together here.....

    edit II: As someone else mentioned, Femtocells.

    I've always wondered about buying one years ago but they seem like a rarity here these days. Also, manipulating that data / telemetry to show you in Antarctica has got to be on someone's fun list?

  • [Meta] Could we have a monthly "Pick an Android for me" pinned thread?
  • So, I just had a gander myself and this is pretty involved

    Maybe there's some existing thing I'm missing but it would be cool :/

  • Android still doesn't support many compression types
  • Yeah no doubt, and that's why I like Tailscale.

    I just map all users Tailnet visitors to guest, and give me r/w and all others r/o.

    Bugs me though that they could include it, with big red flashy warnings like you get enabling USB debugging.

  • Android still doesn't support many compression types
  • I keep pondering why Android has blobs for CIFS/SMB but not NFS, too.

    Still haven't found a legit reason why.

  • Where should I post a piracy guide?
  • You could call them a literal gem eh?

    .....I'll see myself out

  • Return of the king
  • Found it and mod abused it, also called Feature In Community I think?

    Anyhoo, expect moar Help Turtles ;)

  • [Meta] Could we have a monthly "Pick an Android for me" pinned thread?
  • Yeah! I've been working far too hard and meant to get back to you, and the main admin has had a IRL issue so I can't nag them right now and they also mentioned they need to update the instance?

    You had a gander through the docs/GitHub to see if an existing thing lives for scheduled posts and could be even hosted by a numbnuts here on a spare Pi etc?

  • Microsoft really wants Local accounts gone after it erases its guide on how to create them

    ninja edit: Hell, even a Chromebook will see you right with some of your other complaints in this thread about Taskbars etc. Unless of course you're averse to anything Corp / they spying on you in which case you're fucked anyhoo.

  • Anyone excited that companies are releasing hardware running stock OpenWRT?
  • Just seen your comment and I can deffo comment as to the security aspect of it.

    I bought a Xiaomi AX3600 with the knowledge that I could flash OpenWRT on it, but before doing so and using the stock firmware I came across this with apt having its hash mismatched when downloading "only over ethernet" which usually infers someone is doing something bad on your network

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/72022569/cannot-find-fixes-to-apt-error-hash-sum-mismatch

    This guy said they replaced their whole router and should really ping them to ask.

    Suffice to say that "bug" went away when I flashed OpenWRT and someone should probably look into more detail why, that was happening....

  • Google clamps down on VPN workarounds for cheaper YouTube Premium subscriptions
  • my comment meant I was preparing to fight.

    You're not.

    Google are thou hence the shadowboxing reference.

  • Google clamps down on VPN workarounds for cheaper YouTube Premium subscriptions
  • how much they must value our personal data, that it only just now became worthwile to fight blockers with this much effort and PR/image depreciation.

    You got it, on the nose.

    Shadow boxing is always good practice.

  • Google clamps down on VPN workarounds for cheaper YouTube Premium subscriptions
  • Ultimately VPN users aren't a protected class so it's legal to discriminate.

    This is what I've always found fascinating about companies and governments trying to block their usage.

    All major firms/companies/governments use them, so, how the hell are they gonna stop them when their bosses get poked that's something's up 🙉

    Fun times ahoy.

  • Android 15 can automatically delete your face or fingerprint unlock if they aren't working well
  • Because generally the TSA in Yankland are overly aggressive, but to be fair it can happen anywhere and here in the UK if they snag you into the backroom and want to search your phone you're screwed either way since they, can.

  • LineageOS 21 now officially supports the Nintendo Switch
  • We're talking about Nintendo here, and we all remember Sony taking away things that made things better too, right?

  • Jellyfin Live Tv
  • Dreamplayer on Android and Android TV is pretty cool for TVH servers, albeit they want you to pay for each app and have a rather appropriate username

    But as others have said LiveTV on Jellyfin sucks and can be used instead with VLC and other apps / resources.

  • Realme Spain claimed *all* of their Realme GT6 stock got stolen, right before launch
  • Seems a bit dubious doesn't it, especially since they'd be compromising any investigation by Tweeting about it in the first place.

    I seem to be suffering from the above bug

    https://github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe/issues/11139

    but it only seems to pervade if I'm using Tailscale to VPN home to my exit node at a family members house?

    Is Google / YT blocking the use of VPN's here / anyone else experiencing this?

    Apple TV and iOS YouTube ads are not blocked by Pi-hole, so I researched this and discovered a flaw in Protobuf that allows me to restrict YouTube ads.

    not called Brad but rather a lad, from Bradford in the UK.

    Enjoys breaking apps, escooters, spam rings and sometimes bones, but not my own. That sucks.
