@sexybiggetje My sister has a few of the tabletop candle replacements, and they're nice too. Kinda like small oil lanterns, but without the fossil and soot mess.
Yeah, they're pretty nice. Comes in bigger fake fireplace form too, for indoors use. We have one in our apartment.
I was apparently wrong recently regarding copyright on Hacker News
In a discussion of police playing copyrighted music to trigger automated takedowns of civillian video, someone pointed out that a recent US Supreme Court decision invalidated copyrightholders' right to sue US states for copyright infringement.
One would presume this might extend to any entity operating as state government.
Say, for the sake of argument, a state university library system.
Which would mean that such a system might take upon itself to, for whatever reason, host Sci-Hub, LibGen, or ZLibrary, in a legally-immune status.
That would be an interesting development.
(There's no specific need for it to be a library system. It could be the forestry department, prisons, or an individual legislator or elected official.)
Related: in operating systems based om software, shortening the issue visibility/identification/cause/fix/deployment cycle is also important.
@debian It's almost like you can see it on the bandwidth graphs of the mirror serving as cdimage.debian.org: https://www.acc.umu.se/technical/statistics/ftp/monitordata/
Sweden has a national land ownership registry. Property transfers have to get registered there in order to take effect.
I heard a theory recently that felt right to me: that Elon Musk's Boring Company isn't actually meant to produce usable mass transit. Instead, it's designed to outbid other public-transit proposals and then intentionally fail, so that trust in public transit proposals will be eroded and people will continue to buy and drive cars.
@rysiek It was the best of mines, it was the worst of mines, it was the age of foolishness, it was the age of profound idiocy, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of credulity, it was the season of GPU embargos, it was the season of coal-fired hash farms, it was the spring of hodl, it was the winter of sodl, we had stonks before us, we had nothing NFT (same thing) behind us, we were all going direct to Mt. GOX, we were all going direct pump'n'dump marketing—in short, the period was so far like the libertarian goldbug anti-fiat kill-the-fed wet dream asset inflation feeding frenzy.
An now we're back up again on a shiny 3.4.1!
