This will definitely result in less people being on unemployment benefits.

"I'm fine."

The problem is I keep repeating the same lie.

Whenever I hear things like this, I ask 'What's the problem they are actually trying to solve?'

Most of the time there is no problem, it's a solution looking for a problem. In this case, it seems like the only problem to solve is:

Today, New Zealanders still cannot make instant payments electronically to other people, unless they are both with the same bank."

I'm pretty sure that could be solved with a middle-man app instead of a 'digital currency.' Venmo exists in the US, something like that?

I'm sure we have had similar.. TradeMe has Ping which "Make payments safely with Ping. Pay or get paid instantly – using a credit or debit card, or Ping balance." .. so, yeah problem already solved, instant payments.

The movie clearly shows that the robots acted as if they felt pain and suffering.

I thought the ending made it pretty clear that in the end, they are cold calculating and very intelligent machines with no actual feelings or compassion, and we had been deceived the whole time. My interpretation I guess, but I feel like that makes the movie better.

You're over-reacting. It's probably only death at worst. Most likely 40 years.

Lutris can be pretty handy for many things..

I don't have too much exp with these things, but I would suggest (as an IT support person) narrowing down and isolating problems into specifics, like:

  • I need dot.net for x thing and I tried y thing and it didn't work.

You'll be able to get better answers. I'm pretty interested in the suggestions, my usual solution is 'find something open source that is not as good but works.'

Her maker imprisoned and tortured all of his creations.

I don't recall entirely but I'm pretty sure it didn't know that. Also, I don't think you can 'torture' or 'imprison' computers.

She couldn’t trust the kid, he lied to her about there being no other machines

So, death is justifiable then?

It's an AI, and it was pretty clearly demonstrated at the end that it felt no remorse or compassion for the dude. It was very very good at manipulating the humans and achieving it's goal at any cost, so.. I completely disagree. Evil wins because living, feeling human beings suffered due to the actions of a sexy computer.

I'm not saying anyone should, just that they would have ample legal funding if they did...

Still haven't seen any prosecution for when they blocked the motorway either.

TL;DR

An Australian pharmacy will continue to send lower-cost diabetes equipment across the Tasman, despite a cease and desist from a medical manufacturer.

...

“This is $130 that my whānau, and many other whānau, could have in their pocket each month,” she told them.

...

manufacturer Medtronic had sent David Jones Pharmacy a letter threatening legal action if the company continued to supply Kiwi customers with the sensors.

...

The pharmacy was “not a legally authorised distributor of Medtronic diabetes products in New Zealand”

...

“We have chosen to ignore [the letter] as it was built upon unsubstantiated accusations,” Le said.

...

“It creates a massive inequity for families who don’t have the financial means to pay a weekly amount, and it’s also a contributing risk to longer term health outcomes.

“It's really expensive to keep them alive. By not funding [sensors] you are risking the lives of kids who don't have that layer of privilege.”


I fucking hate this bullshit. Hong Le is a hero.

Obviously, I am not in this situation. Related article, wondering what is happening to this woman's house/loans/expenses/rent/car payments/etc

So before conviction, when you're being held pending court proceedings, it would be inconvenient to attend your work place during that time. So I'm wondering, what happens?

If you're found not guilty after months of court hearings, are you just fucked over completely because the bank foreclosed on your house?

This makes no freakin sense to me, and it's driving me bonkers. Censored for work purposes obv.

Hosts file:

1.1.1.1 site.com

$ping site.com

PING site.com (1.1.1.1)

^C

$ping http://site.com

ping: unknown host http://site.com

What?? Ping, You JUST RESOLVED site.com, why can't you resolve it now??

Why does the addition of the protocol break DNS resolution?

It's CentOS 6.10, quite old..

/etc/nsswitch has:

hosts: files dns

Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Might be late to the party, but I just discovered you can do this. Super simple and easy to do.

After having a read of the linked page, I backed up and just used this option:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Profile-sync-daemon

Installed, created config, and enabled service:

systemctl --user enable psd.service systemctl --user enable psd-resync.service

I definitely notice an increase in speed and less SSD usage should hopefully increase lifespan.

I'm sure there would be options for alternative distros, anything using Systemd should be able to use the daemon.

Had someone contact me because a browser interface was 'down' and it was actually a cert issue. It surprised me that in an IT context, this person didn't have a basic understanding of SSL certs. They didn't even know how to add a cert exception.

It got me thinking, what basic ubiquitous things am I a dumbass about outside of IT?

Ive seen lots of 'fun facts' compilations, but it would be better to get a wide range of subject suggestions that I can spend 30 minutes each or less on, and become a more capable human.

Like what subjects would plumbers consider basic knowledge? Chemical interactions between cleaning products and PVC pipes?

What would an accountant or a landscaper consider to be so basic its shocking people can live their lives without knowing any of it?

For most areas of expertise, its difficult to know even what the basics are to start with.

After a sober new years because I was on call, I decided to keep it going.

Here's what I'm doing that is helping me so far:

  • No caffeine. It puts me on a rise/crash cycle where I end up going for the beer just to get through the evening.

  • No alcohol lying around; environment is stronger than willpower.

  • Keeping busy until the liquor stores close

  • Eating properly and regularly, so I never reach a state of low energy and low willpower. Because you know a beer will fix that real quick and then you're back in the cycle.

Also really helps after ADHD diagnosis and having medication to kill the uneasy itchiness that I was using alcohol for.

Right before I fall asleep, I'll remember some random details of a dream I had when I was 5-10 years old. It changes each night, but never is a newer dream.

Does that happen to anyone else?
