Hmm. Pretty much for everyone else as well… It has become worse that youtube comments over there.

I am still over there occasionally, because some journalists whose updates I follow are only there. The worst part is that the more right wing trolls I block, the more seem to pop up.

A used book for 12£ is maybe 8€ more than I normally spent on used books.

Switched to Linux in 2005 or 2006. Been missing Winamp ever since. :) Finally.

@menemen@lemmy.world avatar

I did, mostly Audacious and Amarok. But, deserved or not, winamp has a special place in the heart of almost everyone in my generation.

Lol, they used a “learning algorithm” for something we solved decades ago? The responsible engineer needs to get his degree revoked…

Is this really new? Haven’t they been using soft computing methods since, basically forever?

This discussion is funny from a German pov, as our main local liberal party (the FDP) is pretty right wing and has been so since the 1940s. “Liberalism” always had a quite neative connotation to me therefore. They are also the party most open to working together with the far right (the AFD).

Liberalism can be right wing or left wing. It makes more sense to structure the political specrum like this. But even that is far from prefect.

Worst are the meetings of international work groups. Stressful travel, being away from the family for days, sitting in a shitty meeting room talking about the same shit you talk about online and then sitting with a bunch of people getting senseless drunk, cringing constantly. I hate those meetings.

Used to be so awesome during corona. Took 4-6 hours, comfortably sitting in my home office, now it takes 3 days costing maybe 50,000€, instead of 0€, without more results.

100% homeoffice jobs are incredibly rare in Germany. I have 50% homeoffice which is quite good for German standards. Even at the height of Corona the offices weren’t empty here.

Lockdowns here were kinda half assed. We didn’t really have full lockdowns like e.g. Italy. Germans love work. :)

I mean, beards are in fashion for several years now, aren’t they?

I personally started growing a beard, because my skin is easily irritated and I don’t like walking arround looking like a pizza. Luckily I also think I look better with a short, well kept full beard. Beards either take time or look like shit though in my experience.

I still have my 3310, but lost the charger. So I don’t know if it is still working.

My children now use what is basically a cheap 3310 copy (also from Nokia, no internet).

I managed to almost completly keep my children away from it for now (8 and 10). But it is a struggle. And I will soon lose that struggle. So many children at age 8 or 9 have smartphones for fs sake.

I plan to slowly introduce them to stuff like this, so they will be able to deal with it. I did so rather successfully with the other bullshit, like Roblox. They are only allowed to play it when I am in the room, and I check that they follow that rule (they do).

Feels like walking on the edge though. Still unsure when to open the TikTok thing. Too early is bad, but too late and they will somehow already he on tiktok and I just don’t know about it.

menemen ,
@menemen@lemmy.world avatar

I’d add the “have clear rules” concept to this and enforce the rules. Don’t be wishy washy. But communicate the rules and be prepared to explain the rules.
But also accept that theory and practice are not the same. Imo you should allow them enough, that they don’t isolated from their friends experiences. That is why I allow them to play Roblox under supervision or why I set up a Minecraft Server so that they can play online with their friend in a safe environment (but only on weekends for a fixed time period).

I hope those people seek further help (just google sucide prevention). Not having a gun is not sufficient suicide prevention.

For 200-250$ you can get very decent used compact cameras (like the RX 100). It won’t upload the photos immediatly, but it is still pretty much on par with most current cell phones.

There have been fascist psychopaths arround as long as humans exist. BUT: when a fascist psychopath gets support among important figures of the industrial and financial sector, that is when you should start to panic.

Here in Germany all mainstream radio djs share the same folder with the same 50 songs they play all day long. I hate radio (except some information stations and some local non-commercial stations, so much bullshit, but occasionally pure gold).

menemen ,
@menemen@lemmy.world avatar

We don’t get that here. And if I set up listening over the internet, I got better things than radio. :) Radio is more the “I am too lazy to care” fallback option for very short trips.

But thanks. Might still give it a try.

The US at least has some degree of control over Microsoft. How much worse is that the EU is still not developing an own OS/distro?

menemen ,
@menemen@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah, that was a shame. But I really think we’d need a shared OS for all administration units of the EU (from EU level down to munipiality levels). Would be much easier as the private sector could also adjust to it.

menemen ,
@menemen@lemmy.world avatar

I am not talking about a OS for the general public, but specifically for the administration.

And this will work much better with a unified attempt. If the EU would think taking OpenSuse for this, this would basically be the end of OpenSuses independence… I’d like it to be GNU/Linux based though.

Don you maybe have a mushroom consultation in your town? Don’t know where you are from, but in Europe many countries have them and they can help you not to kill yourself.

Dumb phone exist. My children got their dumb phones when they started walking to school on their own (so they can call us in case of a problem).

No internet, only 4 harmless games and I can control which numbers are allowed to call them and which numbers they are allowed to call.

If he’d just say “It is over, no more books.” people would just move on. But him constantly stating that he’ll publish “next year” for 10 years years or so now is really annoying.

menemen ,
@menemen@lemmy.world avatar

It is pretty comparable tbh. It is also the same for Elders scroll fans. Before Skyrim and before A Dance with Dragons both published constantly and both started publishing on the mid 90s, both published 5 times, both started publishing side project stuff.

Elders Scroll fans have it somewhat better though, not depending on a single person, who also isn’t the youngest.

I am also an Elder Scroll fan since Arena btw, so I am quite f…d.

True to a degee, but too many international journalists still depend on that plattform. Makes it hard to ditch it completly, until finally one of the alternatives really pick up.

Let’s hope. But they have to change the way that likes are shown. It always feels lonely over there.

I am nit a big Matrix fan, so maybe my knowledge about the films (I saw 1 and 2, both only once) might be too limited. But I completely fail to understand the symbology.

The Character Switch was originally supposed to be a man in the real world and a woman when plugged in to the matrix.

This would have been a clear symbol.

While I have nothing against a “maximum wage”, the wealth tax is much more important.

The power is sadly not “fake”, but very real.

Anyone working in e.g. public infrastructure will be very much able to assure you, how much power money brings and it gets worse with rising levels of political structures.
