Web browsers have some of the most security out of any applications out there. What, specifically, is firejailing going to do?
Also if your goal is security rather than blanket privacy, Chromium browsers are better: https://madaidans-insecurities.github.io/firefox-chromium.html
Houses are a thing of the past.
Environmental has been discussed, but there’s also practicality. The number of people per household is rapidly decreasing.
The scaling impact of this is twofold - Everything is going to be further away, and the sense of community will be greatly lessened (and that’s not even considering how much more time people spend inside compared to 20 years ago).
Fewer people in a house means more maintenance per person too - and if you’re going to hire someone else to do it, that’s gotten more expensive.
If you want a house, you can get a house. But things have changed - It’s not the best option for most people, and it’s certainly not the best option for any competent government.
You’re completely ignoring just about every other reason apartments are better.
It’s easy to see big cities like NYC and think “that’s bad for the environment”, but it’s easier to forget how much worse it would be if everyone lived in houses.
And to the point of energy - Use nuclear.
It’s talking about a new app made by Meta. Key point from article:
“Soon, our app will be compatible with certain other apps like Mastodon,” Instagram’s slide says. “Users on these other apps will be able to search for, follow and interact with your profile and content if you’re public, or if you’re private and approve them as followers.”
Unfortunately, Converso is not open source and their website is totally silent on cryptographic primitives and protocols
The most insane part is this somehow wasn’t the worst part in the article
A quick look at Seald’s homepage answers many questions. Seald is a drop-in SDK for app developers to integrate end-to-end encryption ‘into any app in minutes’.
Not only does Converso include a Google Analytics tracker to record how you use the app
This is an encryption app that claims to not even have metadata, btw
As I was finishing up the above post, I noticed something a little strange in the code – something I’d glossed over earlier. There are a ton of references to what looks to be functions related to Google’s Firestore database.
As someone who integrates Firebase for work, this made me tremble
I wrote a few lines of code to see what would happen if I tried to pull from the users collection:
Looks like I accidentally breached Converso’s user database
It turns out the Seald username is the user’s phone number, and the encryption password is just their user ID.
HOW IS IT GETTING WORSE???
Thanks a lot! I had English selected!
I changed it to Undetermined, and now I’m seeing a different subset of posts. But at least it’s more… Yay?
This is the same post as above, and now I’m not seeing any of the comments I was seeing before
Let’s say we have Lemmy.ml/c/soccer and Beehaw.org/c/soccer, and they’re federated.
Bob posts on Lemmy.ml/c/soccer, but his posts violate Beehaw.org/c/soccer’s guidelines. If Beehaw.org/c/soccer bans Bob, does that just mean Beehaw users don’t see Bob’s posts?
If so, I don’t really see the problem?
I’m also watching the updates to Stable Diffusion (try it out here) every day, very excited for what it can do in 1 year’s time
Wondering what other Lemmys are looking out for.
For me, I’m excited for https://frame.work/ to start selling GPUs with their laptops. I can’t wait to finally buy the last laptop I’ll ever need to buy, since as Framework parts die/get old you can replace them individually.
Good god that one bird was excited!
I used to have multiple parakeets as a kid, but as they grew older we were down to one. That last parakeet loved to socialize with the humans, and loved talking to themself in the mirror, but I felt bad as an owner that it couldn’t have a partner. Birds are too smart, and deserve the tech like this 🙏
There’s a ton of game launchers, for instance this one just came out the other day and allegedly launches your games from Steam/Heroic/Bottles/etc. Not sure if it’s what you need but it seems weird there wouldn’t be an alternative to Playnite: https://flathub.org/apps/details/hu.kramo.Cartridges
Screensharing looks like something to wait on though. I’ve heard of people getting it to work but seems finicky
Edit: Looks like Playnite has distant goals of supporting Linux. Could be a race between these two apps for you to see which one gets working first
These tests, combined with our visual analysis of the data yielded the result that repositories containing swearwords exhibit a statistically significant higher average code-quality (5.87) compared to our general population (5.41).
The scores here (5.87 and 5.41) are from 0-10 based on SoftWipe. For a general idea on what that feels like when you look at the code, referring to this article in Nature (a highly reputable journal outlet):
sumohas a rate of 7.7 bugs per 1000 LoC (SoftWipe score: 3.7),
llvm-openmphas a rate of 4.0 bugs per 1000 LoC (SoftWipe score: 5.2), and
llvm-pstlhas a rate of 0.8 bugs per 1000 LoC (SoftWipe score: 7.4)
Naively assuming a linear correlation (
y = -0.6x +8, where
x is the number of bugs in 1000 lines of code and
y is the SoftWipe score), we can extrapolate that:
|x = 3.55||x = 4.31|
Therefore code with swearwords has about 1 less bug per 1,000 lines of code than code without it.
although we have a statistically significant difference between the groups, it could be caused by other underlying factors […] This means that swearing will not automatically improve the quality of your code
