Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • You didn't answer the question.

    Diplomacy was utilized before Russians crossed the Ukraine border to launch a full scale invasion. Also back when Russia was "intimidated" by Ukraine's inherited nuclear arsenal and made agreement they will leave Ukraine alone - and this, among other things led us here.

  • Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • Ok, I'll bite - how do you imagine that? It's pretty much down to Ukraine and all othet countries laying down weapons if attacked or fighting back and defend their territory. Would love to hear what you imagine being the 3rd option

  • Dresden Files - All caught up (spoilers all)
  • Dresden sure is a journey. I remember I didn't like them that much at first but it really grew on me. Got real spoiled by most of them being available on demand, the wait is terrible.

    How to ease up the return to GW2

    I thought I'd try GW2 after years of not playing (last I played was PoE era, bounced off fully before Icebrood saga) and finally managed to get into it!

    I used to live and breath this game and while I was not what you'd call "hardcore" player, I knew about everything going on. Now I'm totally in the black which is weird. I try not to get it to me, I just play through the Icebrood saga story now and try my best not to open inventory and achievement tabs etc to not get discouraged. GW2 was always a bit convoluted, but with so much added in the meantime, it's much.

    How do you deal with this? What would be your recommendations for me to "ease into it"? What should I engage after getting my groove back in the story? How to dip my toes slowly into buildcrafting? What new systems should I check out?

    Bonus question: would you expect the xpacs to go on sale anytime soon? Next one should be around the corner by now, no?

    Can someone ELI5 for me how Piped works?

    So I mostly transitioned to Piped and ever since I was wondering how it works. I read up on it and while I get what it says, I still don't feel like I really understand...

    Does watching on Piped count views and such?

    So I considering switching to Piped, but I'm wondering if the views (or other metrics) are counted on Youtube itself. I don't like the idea I'm kinda "robbing" the content creators I enjoy...

    I think I know the answer but would like to know for sure.

    Anyone has the famous reddit story with the immortal snail?

    There was this legendary comment on reddit to a thread asking people what would their plan be if they were immortal and got milion dollars, but there was a superintelligent immortal snail also with milion dollars who would want to kill them. I was trying to find it but as far as I can tell OP removed it. Does anyone here have it and could post it here by any chance?

    Any alternatives to Google Photos?

    I'm starting my degoogling journey (mostly looking into the various options at hand) and I was wondering what hood alternatives to Goohle Photos is there? I'm specifically wondering about a service that would double both as a cloud storage and a gallery with a timeline and such. But currently it's only cloud storage backup (or Instagtam-likes, which is bot something I want) as far as I can tell?

    Wayfinder Early Access Showcase Twitch

    Twitch is the world's leading video platform and community for gamers.


    Anybody else unreasonably excited for this one?

    Looks like a really fun MMO-lite with potential and plans to lean more heavily into MMO elements. Pretty much looks like fantasy Warframe with cream on top. Monetization looks fair as it is published by the same guys that did Warframe and I think they have a good reputation for how they do their monetization.

    No wipe after EA ends so this is pretty much early launch, though it will eventually be F2P after official launch.

    Actual showcase starts at around 00:30 mark.

    Didn't watch it all yet, but looks like Fantasy Sims MMO. Thoughts? Anybody excited? Doesn't seem like my cup of tea, butlooks interesting enough for me to at least try it.

    How safe is open source software? What are the general benefits?

    So with open source software more on my mind lately I was wondering - while I get the benefits of transparency and such, how safe is it? If the source code is available to all, isn't it easier to breach for people (like the recent cookies hack)? If I'd have an open source password manager, would it be easier for people to get my passwords somehow than if I use something not open source? Do I just not understand how software works in general?

    And what are other benefits that may be not so obvious to someone not so knowledgable about this?

    Edit: thank you all for really insightful answers! Among other things I also learned just how much I don't know :)

    Issue with subscriptions

    I'm having some issues with subscription list view when it wouldn't load for me at all moat of the time, I got "null check operator used on null check value" message with a reload option that doesn't do anything? Anybody else having this issue? Any way to fix? I have two accounts logged in if that makes any difference.
