I’m thankful we don’t have Bush and Cheney in the whitehouse right now. Cheney had the biggest hard on for an Iran war.

Bolton.

Trump’s administration also had a lot of old Bush folks that wanted to antagonize Iran.

Can homeless people be fined for sleeping outside? A rural Oregon city asks the US Supreme Court (apnews.com)

The scenes were emblematic of the crisis gripping the small, Oregon mountain town of Grants Pass, where a fierce fight over park space has become a battleground for a much larger, national debate on homelessness that has reached the U.S. Supreme Court....

I can’t speak for Oregon, but here in California the problem is that we have a LOT of beds that are not being used. And cities and states can’t force people into shelter and care if the area doesn’t have enough beds for everyone that is unhoused.

The ask is to be able to shelter some people with the beds that are available. Right now CA is forced to wait until it could theoretically give every unhoused person a shelter bed at once.

Safety, hygiene, and convenience are often reasons why many people opt for a tent over the local shelter.

I bought one of the early M1s and bought into a lot of the early reviewers that claimed 8 was enough on the ARM architecture. Honestly, for most folks, it’s probably fine. For me, it’s not.

My wife and I use the M1 has a multi-account family machine. And we’re both experience design directors, so we both have RAM hog design apps open under our accounts. The poor little Mac just can’t handle all that abuse with 8 gigs.

Our old ass Intel Mac with 16gig of RAM had no problems keeping a ton of crap open.

The battery life and low heat are absolutely amazing on the M1. That stuff was a monumental upgrade. But we absolutely can’t be lazy and just leave crap open unless it’s actually needed.

The fact that Apple is selling “Pro” machine with 8 gigs is a joke. 8 would be fine for my folks who fart around on Facebook all day, but it’s not enough for a lot of heavy multimedia work.

Yeah, my guess is 2x accounts is the cause of 90% of my performance issues. One person’s Adobe crap is fine, but two us too much for 8gigs without the occasional beach ball.

@Ghostalmedia@lemmy.world avatar

I get the sense that a lot of people here don’t use MacOS.

I have a few ARM and Intel Macs in 8 and 16gig configs, and I do a lot of heavy multimedia work. My 8 gig M1 only really gets into trouble when my partner and I both have an account with files open in bloated creative software. One pro user, and it’s usually fine. 2 active accounts with shitty creative software running, and you get a few beach balls.

@Ghostalmedia@lemmy.world avatar

Have you used an 8 gig ARM Mac?

I’m pretty brutal on my machines, and if my 8 gig m1 really only starts to beach ball when multiple accounts are open, and those accounts all have bloated multimedia software running.

My 16 gig machines can handle that use case fine, but the 8 gig machine will occasionally beach ball.

Personally, I won’t buy an 8 gig config again. But I’m a fucking monster that leaves a million bloated things open across multiple active user sessions.

Ghostalmedia ,
@Ghostalmedia@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah, if I’m building a PC, I’ll throw in as much RAM as I can get.

That said, with 16gigs I’m usually not thinking about RAM at all. I’d probably only want to go higher than that if I was living in Adobe Lightroom 24/7.

Depends what you’re doing, but for branding and print media, Adobe still dominates most shops. If you’re doing UX, then you’re probably in Figma these days.

Free stuff is great and all, but I imagine they’re using a stolen CC to pay for those subscriptions and they’re exploiting someone who’s not great at paying attention to their credit card bill.

You may want to report it so that someone isn’t getting fucked over.

Ghostalmedia OP ,
@Ghostalmedia@lemmy.world avatar

But it’s probably using a stolen CC. I wouldn’t feel too great about using someone else’s credit card without their knowledge. I’d report it and try to get the card suspended.

They will boot your account if you contact CS and say “my account has been compromised?”

Ghostalmedia OP ,
@Ghostalmedia@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah, but they don’t have contemporary best practices in place that would’ve reduced their exposure to this.

I feel like Jellyfin is a better solution than something like Plex, but I still feel like there is a trade off. I’m not dealing with ads, accounts, and content appearing / disappearing. But I was the TV and media library’s sys admin in the house, and that came with a different set of inconveniences.

Ghostalmedia OP ,
@Ghostalmedia@lemmy.world avatar

That’s absolutely correct, and something to keep in mind in case you’re already stressed out with work or lacking free time

Exactly. I’m exchanging some amount of money and time in order to watch stuff on my TV and phone. These days I’m exchanging a bit more money because I have less time.

Ghostalmedia OP ,
@Ghostalmedia@lemmy.world avatar

Exactly. Having been on the CS side of the house for stuff like this, I can’t imagine they would penalize the customer for coming forward. Customer service ain’t got time for that. They’re going to remove the card, reset the password, and maybe report the card.

Taking money from someone else’s bank account is a shitty thing to do. I don’t know why anyone here would be in support of not reporting this.

The people hiding their checkmark are not paying for the checkmark. They’re primarily paying to remove the restrictions Musk has thrown on free accounts. More ads, buried posts and replies, etc.

These folks are embarrassed about supporting Musk, but they’re still addicted to their old Twitter habit. They’re the addict who is sneaking drinks in the garage.

God I hate global protect. That product is not performant at all.

Last company worked for was using OpenVPN. It wasn’t great, but I would gladly take it over Global Protect.

IMHO, it kind of comes down to the fact that Sean Evans is a decent host and he actually gets pretty good stuff out of his guests.

The hot wings are the gimmick we came for, but the quality interviews are why it’s remained for 20+ seasons.
