No free trade without free movement!

Honestly, even with cash it is actually hard to not give money to the oligarchs in Thailand. Pretty much every single transaction involves profit to the likes of CP Group. The chicken farms, the plastic bags, the sauces, the fuel...

Damn, this is gonna be a hard rule to follow for a lot of people here lol.

I went to a party in maybe 2003, that had basically a mini studio setup in one room. An SLR camera on a tripod with some studio lighting. People would just wander in there and snap some photos. It was pretty cool. Waaayyy out in the middle of nowhere VA.

Rusty on my reading of devanagari-- is that pronounced like "meharbaanii"?

Would have been a lot cooler if they'd let the ghoul get murdered first.

I always sing it "I want a girl with a short skirt and a looooong mustache"

This is true. There's even a Linux command to grab the license key. The key won't work on any other hardware tho, so it's kind of useless :)

I just found out that 'seasonal' businesses such as theme parks don't have to pay overtime! They are often staffed by young people from other countries. It's some bullshit.

Yeah no shit. Either is the other guy.

Seedbox recs (lemmy.ml)
submitted 2 weeks ago by electric_nan@lemmy.ml to c/piracy@lemmy.ml

I currently use a Hetzner VPS in conjunction with a Hetzner storage box. Generally I'm very happy with this setup, but I recently had a VPN failure which resulted in a very stern email from Hetzner. What I would like to do is keep the storage box, but move my torrenting/jellyfin server to a different company. I'm worried about them deleting my ~12TB of media if I slip up again!

Basically I want a comparable value to Hetzner, with a US based server. Who's got recs?

Thinkpad recs? (lemmy.ml)
submitted 1 month ago by electric_nan@lemmy.ml to c/linux@lemmy.ml

I like used Thinkpads. I bought a T430s off eBay and used it for several years. Recently I got a T570 from work. It had a screen issue, so I bought a new screen. That didn't fix it so I bought a new mobo, but it has a loose drive connector so won't boot. Just now I killed it for good by putting an nvme in a sata slot lol.

Anyway, I need another laptop and I don't want to buy something new. The t570 did everything I needed it to, but I'm concerned about the design/build quality. What Thinkpads are people running these days that aren't very old but still solid?


I use LOS with microg on my OnePlus 8T. I have been running rooted with Kitsune (magisk fork), and I always follow the process to maintain root when upgrading LOS. Today I updated but somehow lost root. So I went through the process of rooting again: downloaded the boot.IMG, patched it on device, moved it to PC, booted into fastboot, flashed patched.IMG to current slot. Kitsune still says N/A. Anyone else having similar trouble? Or maybe just care to point out something obvious I'm missing?

Hot and Cold (lemmy.ml)
submitted 4 months ago by electric_nan@lemmy.ml to c/asklemmy@lemmy.ml

Does anyone else vacillate between feeling hot (attractive) and repellant?

Some days I feel like all the women around me find me desirable, and other days I feel like none of them do. I rarely feel 'in between'.

I don't really like feeling either extreme. For one thing, I don't trust either feeling! Feeling unattractive is obviously a bad feeling, but feeling ultra attractive is also bad. It leads me to uncomfortable fantasies and an inability to distinguish normal interactions from flirtation.

Does anyone else feel like this?

I am having some trouble with a Nextcloud server. I set up a digitalocean droplet to test contact syncing for work. I went with the setup that I use at home, which is Yunohost and Nextcloud. This was/is working fine to sync contacts with iOS using the built-in support for CardDav accounts in iOS.

I made a snapshot of the server and rebuilt it on a work account (also Digital ocean). I reconfigured it for a new domain name, and got a letsencrypt cert. I can login and manage the admin and user accounts.

I set up an iPad to use the new server, and it seemed to work fine. However, I subsequently tried a couple other iPhones, and it won't connect to the account.

It isn't a fail2ban thing, because on the same apple devices that I can't connect to the accounts on, I can go login to Nextcloud in their browser.

What is happening?

Edit: I seem to have fixed it by reinstalling the server from scratch. I wanted to eliminate any problems that may have been caused by restoring from a snapshot previously linked to another domain. Everything is working at least for now.


I only bake bread once or twice a year, but I just saw this community pop up, and I wanted to share the loaf I made on Christmas eve. This is a Swedish rye bread. It is a bit sweet, oweing to the brown sugar and orange zest it contains. It is a recipe that goes back at least to my grandmother's recipe, in which it was entitled "Limpa". I love it, and have always had it at Christmas.


It was mostly alright. I got to shoot a lot of different weapons. Almost bit my tongue in half from clamping down during the bad history lecture about communism. Since this crowd included work colleagues, I don't feel like I can be honest about my politics. Ugh, it was tough not to shut that shit down though!

I'm looking for a good, reliable way to download embedded YouTube videos. These videos are not always accessible on YouTube.com, so the method can't be specific to that site. Thanks for any recommendations!

I'm new to Windows deployments, and I need some help. I've gotten as far as setting up a new system from a Windows 11 image downloaded from MS, configuring it/installing software, and then running sysprep. I made a WinPE boot thumbdrive, but I'm stuck at capturing the Windows image part. Part of my problem is that I'm trying to make this in a VM. Is that more trouble than it's worth?

Is there an easier way to do this? I've seen people saying I can use Linux tools like Clonezilla, which sounds good to me, since I'm very comfortable with Linux-- but I read that might cause problems. One thing mentioned was licensing.

I would be deploying these images 100% onto Lenovo machines that we purchase from CDW, so I'm not sure how licensing would work. Is the license tied to the MAC? Will they auto-register once I boot them with the new image?

Thanks for anyone that takes the time to help me understand this :)

Hells Angels are moving into my area for the first time. I have a generally negative view of them, but have some friends who feel otherwise. I would love to hear your experiences related to the Angels specifically, but "1%" clubs as well.


The phone number field on the Verizon website has increment/decrement by 1 buttons, so you can select your phone number the long way, I guess!
