Trump rally shooter identified as 20-year-old Pennsylvania man
  • Yeah, it doesn't matter if he donated or not. He's a deep state operative or RINO, or a secret librul, or you name it.

  • My fellow software engineer, It's the year 2024...
  • My fellow FOSS users, patches are welcome.

  • Which bike? Salsa Warbird CF vs Canyon Grail CF SL 7?
  • The Salsa looks like a normal no-nonsense design. Clamps, handlebars and all. The Canyon has got some too fancy for comfort things. For example I don't know what's gonna happen if the handlebars are too low for me. It doesn't look like there's much possibility for adjustment. On the Salsa I can even replace the fork if I need to for more drastic changes.

    Also seconding the opinion that generally aluminum is much easier to live with than carbon.

  • Climate change could return us to the pre-antibiotic era

    too mucho wobble on the rear axle?
  • Play in the hub bearings is not great because it leads to uneven loading of the bearings and likely faster degradation.

  • Italy to offer defunct Stellantis brands to Chinese automakers, report says
  • Yes. This is why it doesn't work without unions. Without them it's a varying degrees of slave shop. Is Meloni interested in that, I don't know. Haven't read on her stance on unions.

  • 98% compatibility
  • By definition Silver means some stuff is broken even with workarounds. Gold is where the performance and functionality works near perfectly after some workarounds. You're right, some Silver games do work fairly well, and the rating may or may not be accurate. But I wouldn't count most of them to the total of well supported games.

  • EU charges Elon Musk’s X for letting disinfo run wild
  • Got reference on hand? I'd like to store it for future use. ☺️

  • Italy to offer defunct Stellantis brands to Chinese automakers, report says
  • I think so. Then Italian unions can ensure it's doesn't become a slave shop.

  • Where do Canada’s soaring corporate profits go? Not ‘back into the country’
  • Of course it's valid. I'm just thinking about it from the point of view of evasion and regulatory capture.

  • Where do Canada’s soaring corporate profits go? Not ‘back into the country’
  • Want the profits to stay in the country? Get these workers higher portion of those profits. A perhaps even better way of corporate profit taxation.

  • Italy to offer defunct Stellantis brands to Chinese automakers, report says
  • Crucially to manufacture in Italy.

  • EU charges Elon Musk’s X for letting disinfo run wild
  • When the vast majority spreads on several platforms, you can very much beat it by blocking it. We're not doing it not because we can't but because letting it spread is profitable. Prior to the invention of modern social media the problem of misinformation was much smaller. Yes of course it will never disappear but we don't need it to disappear.

  • What is everyone's favorite coffee brand?
  • Wow I had no idea that Starbucks in bags was Nestle.

    Grab your contact cleaner and clean their SATA connectors!

    I just bought a new 1TB Crucial MX500 made in god knows what year and installed it in a virgin SATA port of a M710q made in 2016 and I got the vomit you see above every time I loaded the drive. Reseated all the connectors. More vomit. Scratched my head a couple of times reaching for the trash bin and I had a brainwave that there might be oxidation from sitting naked with the elements. Took out the DeoxIt Gold, dabbed all the connectors on the SATA path, cycled them a few times, powered on and loaded the drive. No more vomit.
