I wish I could show my country next to my username or something lol.

You could use a vanity username with a flag emoji in it, if you really wanted to.

As a millenial, I am 100% on board with skipping right over us, too, and getting a Gen Zer in there. They have the most to lose if the climate crisis continues and therefore I trust them the most to actually push to do something about it. In fact, let's just fill the entire government with Gen Zers.

“Why do you seek to deny [the right to an abortion] to other women?” Clark pressed.

“Let me, let me — I don’t, I don’t,” Holtorf replied.

“You have voted to restrict abortion access,” Clark shot back.

“And I have. And I’m a pro-life person. I think you should try to choose life every time. But there are exceptions. And there are times when you need abortion. Abortion is a medical procedure,” declared Holtorf.

There are exceptions, like when it's inconvenient for the rich and powerful. Other people should (be compelled by law to) choose life every time.

We had one pandemic, yes...

But what about second pandemic?

I wonder what the survival rate for ants that get run over with lawnmowers actually is. I'd imagine it's quite high.

Yes, I, too, feel very real emotions like a desire to run water over my human skin. I definitely do not require microcontrollers to instruct me on when it is time to do so! Just like all completely normal humans. Of which I am one.

I doubt even Microsoft are stupid enough to think they could release a PC-based gaming handheld without Steam support and not fail spectacularly.

Shortly after we moved in, someone was taking a shower in our second-floor bathroom, the bottom of the shower cracked, and they didn't notice. End result was an entire shower's worth of water draining out the bottom of the shower, flowing about 10 feet inside the first-floor ceiling, draining down through the hole from a light fixture, across the kitchen floor, down through the kitchen floor into the basement ceiling, soaking into a bunch of exposed insulation, and making that insulation collapse onto the (concrete) basement floor.

Wasn't the original Perfect Dark hard sci-fi with aliens and spaceships and things? It's possible I just don't remember it well. Either way, this doesn't look like a bad game at all. Just not what I'd have expected.

This is the first I've seen of this game, but... this is definitely not what I expected from a game titled 'Perfect Dark'. Maybe I just don't remember the N64 game well enough, but this seems pretty far-removed, from a plot perspective.

The canopic jars are actually early battery designs. They were much more efficient than any batteries we have today - they produced almost unlimited energy and were very cheap and easy to make (just look at how many there are), but the government (which is secretly run by lizard people by the way, do your own research and educate yourself) covered it up and created the BURIAL CHAMBER MYTH to keep us reliant on fossil fuels.

We banned basic land destruction of unmodified lands (including mass land destruction that incidentally hits basics like Armageddon and Jokulhaups), some of the more oppressive stax pieces, mostly things that create locks where people can't play the game, a handful of cEDH caliber cards, and certain types of infinite combos (2-card infinite combos where one card is your commander, for instance). One could argue that this creates an imbalanced environment by favoring strategies that take advantage of these rules, like ramp decks and lands strategies, and one would be correct - we've banned a lot of the normal ways to counter those strategies, but we maintain an overarching 'Don't be a dick' rule that has so far covered it.

The hacktivists, which describe themselves as made up of "gay furry hackers," usually target government orgs whose policies they disagrees with, and have a flare for political publicity stunts, also posted a link to the purported stolen files on their Telegram channel.

"The astonishing siegedsec hackers have struck NATO once more!!1!!!," the crew wrote, bragging: "NATO: 0. Siegedsec: 2."

The team is referring to its earlier NATO intrusion in July, during which it claimed it swiped information belonging to 31 nations and leaked 845MB of data from the alliance's the Communities of Interest (COI) Cooperation Portal.

"Some game developers are turning to artificial intelligence to make the creative process faster and easier—and cheaper, too. At Google Cloud Next in San Francisco, startup Hiber announced the integration of Google’s generative AI technology in its Hiber3D development platform, which aims to simplify the process of creating in-game content.

Hiber said the goal of adding AI is to help creators build more expansive online worlds, which are often referred to as metaverse platforms. Hiber3D is the tech that powers the company's own HiberWorld virtual platform, which it claims already contains over 5 million user-created worlds using its no-code-needed platform.

By typing in prompts via its new generative AI tool, Hiber CEO Michael Yngfors says creators can employ natural language to tell the Hiber3D generator what kind of worlds they want to create, and can even generate worlds based on their mood or to match the vibe of a film. [...]"

Once this is refined, this could be very neat! It's only environments right now, not characters and whatnot, too, but maybe eventually we'd be able to dynamically generate some anthro-populated worlds to explore.

Performance on Pawb.Social specifically has been degrading significantly; it often times takes a very long time (10+ seconds) to load a post, for example, with a noticeable number of time-outs occurring. Opening the same post via its home instance in these cases typically works much faster, leading me to believe the problem is here, not with the host instance.

This is the case even with local communities.

Hoping to hear from other folks - are you also experiencing this? Is it a temporary issue, or indicative of a growing server-side problem?

There was discussion on the lemmy fork thread about replacing the default 'Donate' link with a server-specific one, but given that's not available yet, is there somewhere we can contribute funds towards hosting costs?

Really, maybe such a link should be on the sidebar, at least - if there is one somewhere already, I wasn't able to find it, and as such I suspect other folks who would potentially be looking for one wouldn't find it, either.

I really don't have a lot of background on cluster munitions; it only really came into my perception in response to the controversy over the US providing them to Ukraine. As I understand it, the controversy is because they often don't all explode reliably, and unexploded munitions can then explode months or years later when civilians are occupying the territory, making it similar to the problems caused by landmines.

In an age where things like location trackers, radio transmitters, and other such local and long-range technology to locate objects are common place, what's stopping the manufacturers of these munitions from simply putting some kind of device to facilitate tracking inside each individual explosive, to assist with detection and safe retrieval after a conflict? I get that nothing is a 100% effective solution, but it seems like it'd solve most of it.

Can someone with actual knowledge explain why this is still a problem we're having?

Books, games, movies, youtube channels, podcasts, whatever you've got - I'd love some recommendations for anything tangentially furry-related. There's plenty of cartoons (and I'd be happy to hear about those, too), but in particular, any more adult-focused media would be very welcomed!

Is it a testament to the power of the organization, or the lawlessness of the city that one can wear their regalia in broad daylight unaccosted? It's anyone's guess.

We can currently filter communities in our feed by 'Subscribed', 'Local' and 'All', but I'd really love a way to add communities to custom groupings, and have additional filter options based on those groupings. For example, a 'News' group that I could add all of the News-related communities to, and be able to click a filter button and see only those... or maybe the use case most people would likely use: creating groups to isolate SFW and NSFW content.

If there's a way to do this that I'm unaware of, I'd love to hear about it.
