Please link the original source and post a way to bypass a paywall in the description.

They are a sovereign nation after all, like it or not.

Australian government:

Australia’s longstanding policy is to recognise States, not governments. The Australian Government does not extend or withhold formal recognition to new regimes. Australia will continue to judge the Taliban regime by its actions.


First - what’s a bookmarklet? :o

I thought I was about to find out the Tasmanian tiger was back. I got lizard instead. Great news.

What I’m saying is - even though it says “shut down”, it’s not doing a real shut down. Yes, you could fully let the battery run dry. But that takes 12 hours and you can’t do it once a day. Plus it ruins your battery’s capacity.

Existing beyond death seems too exploitative for my liking. But also, what do people think about trademarks and patents.

These days, I don’t think phones even turn off completely. Closing to sleeping. And only a portion of background services will stop and restart.

Your comment has been posted in the wrong thread as I’m sure you’re aware by now. FWIW, this is a known Lemmy bug.

I get you. I have no idea why there’s an ad for lemonade here. Putting that aside, I more posted that link for the spirit of it.

Please do not forget there’s a father and 19 year old son onboard. They, the crew, and everyone else do not deserve to die.

The US and India have already gotten closer in recent years due to the formation of the the Quad alliance. I imagine this is to further strengthen diplomatic ties?

Well Google is gutting ad blockers. So maybe there will be an extremely minor exodus yet.

It’s strange to consider the US system of prices and taxes from an Australian perspective. In Australia all prices must be displayed inclusive of any applicable taxes.

I was surprised at the number of non- technology themed episodes.

The Good News Effect
I saw a comment this morning lamenting the imbalance of positive and negative news content that we are given. There are scientific studies ([Negativity drives online news consumption](https://www.nature.com/articles/s41562-023-01538-4)) that show this type of content generates higher engagement. So whether news organisations are aware of their editorial direction or not, the clicks that drive the content they publish push them into this space. I am not suggesting we stop discussing the important serious issues of the day. Though, I will be actively trying to share more positive articles with you all going forward and I encourage you to join me.

You’re right. I’m going to start actively searching out positive stories to post.

Every religious community organisation that I have had first hand personal experience with has been involved in a myriad of verified claims of abuse Including: sexual, financial, and elder. My confidence in these institutions is now nonexistent. And I find myself misidentifying with them completely. I think I am now de facto apathetically agnostic.

Interesting suggestion of btop. How does it compare to htop?

The new Sydney offices designed to make workers happy
Work wants everyone back in the office more than 50% now. Seems like a growing trend. Anyone still managing to work from home full time?

Any mechanical keyboards communities out there?

Don’t get people started on the use of SMS for 2FA…

“This project was funded through the NGI0 Discovery Fund, a fund established by NLnet with financial support from the European Commission’s Next Generation Internet programme, under the aegis of DG Communications Networks, Content and Technology under grant agreement No 825322.”

If you can get anything close to Apollo, you will be able to get at least a decent paying following, including me.

Try adding the site to your home screen. It will actually add progressive web app, which is surprising useful.

`Seventy-seven percent of middle-age Americans (35-54 years old) say they want to return to a time before society was “plugged in,” meaning a time before there was widespread internet and cell phone usage. As told by a new Harris Poll (via Fast Company), 63% of younger folks (18-34 years old) were also keen on returning to a pre-plugged-in world, despite that being a world they largely never had a chance to occupy.`

Sure, let’s hope they have a backup policy in place for best practice. But also it is kinda decentralized anyway. Every dev is going to have their local repo, and that is essentially a backup.

Since it’s on a network share, there’s the extra overhead of managing the file system permissions. And you probably hadn’t received access at the point.

Are you concerned about corruption due to multiple users? Are you using the repo in the intended way? Then it’s fine. Git has locking mechanisms. Pull, work, commit, push.

If you’re looking for an entertaining film based on the true story of an NSA analyst leaking a document around Russia’s interference in US elections, check out Reality (2023).

Reddit tended to have a pervasive assumption that everyone was American. I like the idea of engaging in location specific communities.

The show is also based on a book I believe.

Totally agree, the avatar the last air bender film should be erased from history.

I’ve been watching season 1. The world is intriguing. Some of the episodes feel slow or like filler. But a new mystery dystopia show is refreshing.
