Louisiana Legislature approves bill classifying abortion pills as controlled dangerous substances (apnews.com)

Two abortion-inducing drugs could soon be reclassified as controlled and dangerous substances in Louisiana under a first-of-its-kind bill that received final legislative passage Thursday and is expected to be signed into law by the governor....

I had a much better experience with Manjaro over EndeavourOS because it supported more of my hardware, but to be fair I’m using an Asus gaming laptop. When I build my next desktop, I’m gonna try a straight Arch install.

You’re making me want to reread all of the books. GNU, Terry Pratchett.

Just want to clarify, as an Jewish American clergyman, the Israeli government is not our government. To say otherwise is to play into the Israeli propaganda which states “To be Jewish is to be Israeli, and to be Israeli is to be Jewish.” The fact that the Israeli government has twisted religion to serve its fascist goals is nauseating.

I can hear both of these quotes so clearly. I’m sad about what Blizzard has become.

Oh my sweet summer child. Ringtones were in a different audio format than mp3s. Plus, getting the ringtone onto the phone required additional fuckery.

To be fair, the plague in Hebrew (Egyptian?) is צפרדע /tz’fardei’ah, which looks like a singular and not a plural. I totally see where he’s coming from. But also, I thought it was in Midrash Tanchuma.

חג פסח שמח!

What the hell, calculators with color screens? Back in my day our graphing calculators were black and gray and we were told to be happy, damn it.

GFGJewbacca OP ,

Sorry about that. I’ll keep that in mind if this gets taken down. Thanks!

GFGJewbacca OP ,

That’s really cool! Didn’t know that. Thanks for sharing, since I’ve just subscribed to the community.

GFGJewbacca OP ,

I did select a number of programs to install during setup so I had everything I needed. Spot on!

I have an ASUS ROG laptop running Fedora 39 right now. The reason Fedora is popular with these laptops is that the controller that switches between the two graphics cards is native to Fedora. It’s explicitly recommended on the site.

EDIT: It looks like there are more distros that work on ROG laptops since I did it. Pretty cool!

GFGJewbacca ,

Woah, you were involved in the project! That’s really cool. I’ve had Garuda on my mind for a while, and earlier today I was able to boot it off the live USB with NVIDIA proprietary drivers. That’s a really good sign for me, so I think I’m gonna go for it once I’ve backed things up.

GFGJewbacca ,

I’ve been using those on my Fedora install without a hitch. I think I’m gonna go for the Garuda install today after I finish backing things up. Excited!

It’s part of the training. People are happier when they have food in their mouths, so that’s why waitstaff wait until your mouth is full before asking. That way, they can avoid complaints.

I have been living in Botswana for the past two years, and I’m genuinely surprised where it is on this list. Yeah, people here don’t have the greatest deal, but there’s freaking universal healthcare here. The country has been extremely politically stable since independence. There’s no way people are less happy here than those who are in active war zones.

GFGJewbacca ,

I see your point. I know that there are folks unhappy with the current government, but to be fair, who isn’t? The San have also been pretty fucked over by the government.

My wife is finishing up a global health pediatric fellowship. She arrived in 2021, and I came out about a year later because I was finishing up chaplaincy training and I had a contract to finish out for a synagogue I was working for.

Sonic and Knuckles is one of the best games out there because of the cartridge slot on top. Playing Sonic 2 as Knuckles was so much fun.

North Korea's Kim orders military to 'thoroughly annihilate' US, South Korea if provoked (apnews.com)

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his military should “thoroughly annihilate” the United States and South Korea if provoked, state media reported Monday, after he vowed to boost national defense to cope with what he called an unprecedented U.S.-led confrontation....

Nuclear escalation always leads to great outcomes, right? Right?

What a cute traveling companion! Lucky you.

I’ve been running Fedora 39 on my ASUS gaming laptop because it’s the only OS that natively supports the utility to deal with the discreet graphics card. I was thinking about using bazzite for the next gaming desktop I build. What do you think about it? I’ve been using Nobara on my Surface Pro 4, but I can’t update using dnf anymore because it would alter some protected drivers, and I don’t want that issue with another distro.

Celeste is a wonderfully brutal game. I love the characters and the whole idea behind, “conquer a hard thing just to say I did it.” To be fair, that is what it feels like when climbing mountains or other large rock structures

Plants vs Zombies is the best tower defense game out there. Y’all can fight me on that.

Did you know that Alfred Krupp, one of the guys responsible for the arms race that led to World War 1, absolutely loved the smell of horse manure? He loved it to a point where he built a house designed so he could always smell it. Wild stuff.

That always makes me think of this great moment from “Men In Black.”

I’m glad at least someone on Lemmy is talking about what’s been happening in Sudan. Too many of us are neglecting their plight, along with those in Ethiopia, The Ivory Coast, CAR and The DRC.

The “live, laugh, love” pillow is a nice touch. I wouldn’t mind this kind of poltergeist in my house…as long as they make good design choices.

Uh… Chanukkah is the least important holiday on the calendar. A shitty thing for this guy to do, but the high holy days were months ago.

I still love playing Dead Cells. I’m planning on putting this on my wishlist for when it goes on sale. Hopefully there’s co-op too.

I can understand why the government would want to do away with the colonial language. It’s a reminder of a dark time. However, the decision of what the official language(s) should be can lead to some tricky politics. If one local language is elevated, it gives an advantage to those who grew up speaking it. This is especially hard for minority languages from indigenous peoples.

An example of this is in Botswana, where I’m currently living. The Tswana people came up from South Africa and displaced indigenous populations like the San and Herero. After independence in 1966 from being a British protectorate, they made English the official language and Setswana the national language. English is used in education and government, but everyone is also expected to learn Setswana to function in society. For those who didn’t grow up speaking Setswana or who don’t learn it, it’s harder or impossible to get good healthcare or a good job.

Language politics can get really messy when there are lots of local languages. I worry about what might happen as a result of this decision.

My wife and I are caring for our 2 month old daughter, and this just scared me a bunch. We’re not using formula from the company in question, but the fact that this happens is terrifying.

I heard GLADOS as I was reading that too. I loved both games. Took me a long time to beat the single player of Portal 2, but damn it was worth it

GFGJewbacca ,

I’ve been running Nobara on my Surface Pro 4, which is based on Fedora. It comes with all the surface drivers built in, which really helps. It’s been working pretty well for me.

Made the switch to KDE

I’ve been using Fedora for a couple of months now, and have been loving it. Very soon after I jumped into this community (among other Linux communities) and started laughing at all the people saying “KDE rules, GNOME drools,” and “GNOME is better, KDE is for babies.” But then I thought, “Why not give KDE a try? The...

GFGJewbacca OP ,

Yes! I wholeheartedly agree with you. There are pieces of GNOME I wish I could bring into KDE, and vice versa.
