I assume less custom configs are better, but I've seen Ansible yaml files that are just convoluted bash scripts written in yaml, which makes them even more convoluted.

brisk OP ,

There are a few PCB drones out there.

Most PCBs, even really cheap ones, are made from FR-4, which is a very robust fibreglass. It's would be a pretty decent choice for drone components in general.

Not drones, but Carl Bugeja on YouTube makes some fascinating machines almost entirely out of PCBs (although he uses a lot of flex PCBs, not just FR-4).

brisk OP ,

I appreciate the ambiguity in your comment created by the missing pronoun.

It's not clear from your post whether you've read the article. In case you haven't, it's not really about printers.

Apples4Ceasefire: Apple Employees Request Ceasefire Recognition ( www.apples4ceasefire.com )

"We, current and previous employees of Apple Inc., wish to express our disappointment and shock at the lack of care and understanding this company has given the Palestinian community, not only abroad suffering in Gaza, but also towards our own team members and anyone who supports them within our stores and offices. "

It's a watermelon. It's used as a symbol for Palestine due to it's alignment with the colours of the flag

What non-FOSS software have you been unable to quit?

For me, Google video search, Google books (Internet Archive is good, but doesn't always have the same stuff), Adobe InDesign (but in the process of learning LaTeX), and Typewise. As for the Google stuff, I liked Whoogle a lot, but almost all their instances seem to have been blocked or shut down. Also, apologies if this is...

Podcast Addict
I really want to use AntennaPod, but I can't do without priority podcasts.

Also Feedly. Feeder (FOSS) is so close, but doesn't allow different sorts for different feeds.

Is there anything unsavory about ProtonMail?

For some reason I have it in the back of my mind that they were at one point accused of being a honeypot for US intelligence because of their association with MIT. Probably complete BS, but maybe not. Are they as open source as they claim to be? Looks like they're on github. F-Droid seems to think they have some Google libraries...

FYI Thunderbird now natively supports PGP (and possibly WKD?) without the need for Enigmail.

I would love to play theatre of the mind, but my table collectively has the spatial awareness of a barnacle.

Who could have ever guessed that naming different software the same thing would ever come back to bite them

Will we ever stop referring to the Web as "the Internet"?

I haven't played with this too much, but I'm reasonably confident you only need an X11 and a Wayland implementation. Mplayer / mpv can play on "rootwin" on X11. For Wayland I think it's a layer.

"You may not reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble any portion of the output generated using SDK elements for the purpose of translating such output artifacts to target a non-NVIDIA platform.,"

This is literally a protected right in multiple countries, so um...

I've seen far too manny error messages claiming I did something I most certainly didn't do. This seems like a good way to make those far more prolific.

Unfortunately missing one dealbreaker feature for me: priority podcasts.

Other than that it is absolutely the best app I've found

This is an interesting sounding project, do you have a feed/blog/mastodon/mailing list you're likely to announce on?

brisk OP ,

There’s a video introduction that talks a little about it and shows a bit of usage.

The canonical proprietary version of this is the SpaceMouse.

These are used in concert with a traditional mouse, with the 3d mouse being used for navigation of the 3d space. They have six degrees of freedom (as in, you can rotate in any axis or you can push it in any axis) so you can rotate and you can pan any which way with full control.

If you’ve ever gotten frustrated in a 3d program trying to figure out the correct sequence of rotations to get to your preferred view, that’s the use case the 3d mouse addresses.

brisk OP ,

It’s becoming increasingly common for community spaces like public libraries to provide access to 3d printers, which is an awesome way to play around with the tech without full investment if you’re lucky enough to have something nearby.

Sepia Search is a global search of peertube content and it has a language filter

I’ve got two Linux boxes that I got new, different, wifi cards for recently. Turns out both those cards have the same Intel AX200 chip which has had a variety of problems causing frequent dropouts that the community has slowly nutted out since I’ve had them, including requiring a kernel patch.

The two big ones are a faulty default power saving mode, and problems talking to a Wireless n router when in WiFi 5 mode.

The SDA is infamous for fighting against the interests of workers under its umbrella.

What does “cookie-cutter” mean in this context?

Vim is cross platform, just in case you don’t know

brisk ,

Yeah absolutely. I only use the graphical version (gvim) on Windows.
