Rooted users can probably bypass this issue with some Magisk modules the same way they do with GPay and banking apps.

That doesn’t work anymore due to hardware attestation

It’s not necessarily counterproductive, it depends on what you’re trying to accomplish

Proper firewall

What services does it have that are listening on external interfaces?

@LaggyKar@programming.dev avatar

How can it tell the difference between spaces used for indentation and spaces used for alignment, if you use the same character for both?

So another site that makes it look like the article ends in order to inject some completely unrelated clickbait video in the middle

No, they have to convince everyone they talk to to enable the setting to be able to use this

And the conditions are still better than what the collective agreements would require?

What’s so hard to read about that?

Huh, I guess must be something dependent on the client. On the web I can scroll horizontally in the code box instead:

I get horizontal scroll even if I view the post on lemmy.world though

What do you mean by “attach an audio to an image”?

I was gonna suggest a shuttle, but then there’s all the shuttle crashes. I wonder which there’s more of.

AFAIK, they’re not known to be backdoored, only suspected

Yes, though OpenSSH has already switched to a quantum resistant algorithm for key exchange (Streamlined NTRU Prime, combined with x25519 in case SNTRUPrime turns out to be weak), and that’s the stuff that needs to be switched as soon as possible to preserve forward secrecy. Authentication keys are less urgent.

New to Linux, have a few questions

I currently use Windows 10 and I’d like to try out Linux. My plan is to set up a dual boot with OpenSUSE tumbleweed and KDE Plasma. I’ve read so many different opinions about choosing a distro, compatibility with gaming and Nvidia drivers, and personal issues with the ethos of different companies like Canonical. I value...

@LaggyKar@programming.dev avatar

That’s generally not a problem anymore with UEFI (unless the boot variables disappear for some reason).

This is how we end up with off-by-one errors

ePub is basically just a limited HTML page in a zip file (plus a bunch of metadata and CSS styles), and ePub 3 can contain audio and video elements embedded in the text, just like a webpage. With the most basic usage, it would just show up as an audio player in the middle of the text, no sync. But there is also a media overlay thing I haven’t looked much into that looks like it provides sync.

When would this be triggered? Could it be used during kennel panics?

LaggyKar ,
@LaggyKar@programming.dev avatar

Yeah, that makes sense. So it’s for the situations where you end up in an emergency shell.

Some better presentation of kernel panic would be nice (which I think is the closest equivalent to a Windows BSoD), but I guess it would require kernel support.

KDE already does have the same thing in its settings

But then you can’t use any apps that require Play Services. The killer feature of GrapheneOS is letting you run Play Services in a sandbox.

That said, many of our clients still don’t support utf-8 so its all ascii and non-latin alphabets are screwed.

Ah, yes, I heard about that sort of thing. Some bank getting a GDPR complaint because they couldn’t correct the spelling of someone’s name, because their system uses EBCDIC.

Even before this, you could just set the format of the column as text

Pretty much everything plays AAC though (unless it’s some cheap mp3 player)

LaggyKar ,
@LaggyKar@programming.dev avatar

AAC-LC is patent free too nowadays (not HE-AAC, but that’s mainly useful for low-bitrate stuff).

And of course later on the alpha quadrant gets most of the mentions since that’s where the wormhole to the gamma quadrant is located. Though presumably Voyager would have spent half of their voyage home in the beta quadrant, had they not found a shortcut.

What’s the pro of KOReader compared to the stock reader?

I assume you’re gonna back that up with a double blind ABX test?

A lot of them do, but there are also ones with mechanical or hydraulic transmission.

you’re going to have a lot of difficulty and it’s going to be pretty expensive running high voltage lines across these railroads.

It’s worked just fine for the past century

For what? Trolleys?

For most trains in Europe. For example I can mention the Iron Ore Line in north Sweden which has 8600 trains. Which isn’t as heavy as some of the coal or ore trains around the world, but it’s at up to a 1% incline.

Ktorrent can do it. It’s got a built in media player, and if you watch a file in it, it will try to download it sequentially.

Expect updates to a lot of things in the near future.

And also a lot of things that remain unpatched for years

The main thing that keeps me from running messaging applications in the browser is the lack of a tray icon
