EU Threatens To Suspend "Addictive" Feature Of TikTok Lite App
  • The talks going on about banning TikTok in the US are absolutely braindead.

  • I'm mad about fear mongering. The top comment just sounds like the braindead cry to ban TikTok that's going on in America right now. (Yes, I know this is not an American related post but I can still be worried about that variety of fear mongering.)

    Pardon me for not finding “vulnerable people need to die for my ideology” very convincing.
  • Idk, it sounds like you pursue ideological purism at the expense of things like women's rights.

  • This is a real problem but you can only have so many words in a tweet. Note that the price isn't zero but instead negative. It means there is literally too much power in the grid and it would need to be used. If a grid has too much power then it is bad. It can damage it. There are things we can build that essentially amount to batteries (or natural variants like a dam) that get charged during times of higher supply than demand and discharged during times of higher demand than supply.

    I used to be confused why "mi nombre es" and "me llamo" seemed to both mean "my name is". I read that "me llamo" really means "I am called" but I guess culturally they use "me llamo" in the same way we use "my name is" even though "mi nombre es" is a more literal translation.

    I'm asking because there are a lot of phrases I'm learning that I know how to use but am still confused. If I knew the actual literal translation I would feel more comfortable. Things like "my brother likes basketball" being "A mi hermano le gusta el baloncesto" are confusing. The use of el doesn't confuse me, that's just how it is and I can see past it, we just don't say "I like the basketball" in English. But what is the point of "a" at the start? To? To what? To my brother? I sort of understand le. I'm not sure when to use it, I'm developing an intuitive understanding of when to use me/te/le/nos as opposed to yo/tú/él/ella/nosotros but it's still tricky.

    So I'm wondering where I can find actually literal translations of these phrases. So many sites seem to use the phrase to mean "translation" (or maybe I'm misunderstanding the term literal translation but I'd think it is as one to one as possible).

    This thread is frustrating. Everyone seems more interested in nitpicking the specifics of what OP is saying and are ignoring that a forum sends you your password (not an automatically generated one) in an email on registration.

    I have an unfinished basement. It would be a great place for a workshop but some hobbies don't do well in a dusty environment. Would setting up an air purifier help? Even then I'm concerned it wouldn't get the entire volume of air.

    One idea is to just cover the area in a tarp (or something more permanent) while not in use.

    I hate to tidy up and will very likely forget even if I don't get lazy and I don't want to have stuff get dusty because it's laying out for a while.

    I assume the dust is coming from the rafters when we walk around upstairs but I'm not certain.

    The hobbies are pretty varied. Electronics (like Arduinos), sewing, painting, etc. Nothing crazy like woodworking or metalworking which create their own dust though. The dust is just the normal dust you see in basements lol.

    Reddit's official TikTok account hypocritically showing off MSOutlookit

    www.tiktok.com Reddit on TikTok

    Everybody is so creative! Search “pcottle github msoutlook” to check it ou. #reddit #github #workhack

    MSOutlookit is a "skin" for Reddit that makes it look like Outlook. In case the joke isn't clear it makes it easier to hide Reddit browsing at work from folks looking over your shoulder. http://pcottle.github.io/MSOutlookit/

    It's just super disheartening to see Reddit themselves show this off after killing third party apps.

    I bought two foam Master Swords and taped them together and covered it in foam clay. Once it dries I will paint it green like the Zonai goop glue from Tears of the Kingdom.

    I was trying to think of something funny to make and I think fusing two Master Swords is the best thing.

    I feel like I'm losing my damn mind. I would've reloaded (or literally restarted the entire game) if I realized how much content a single damn skill check less than 30 minutes in would make me miss by failing. I feel like I've been nearly everywhere in Act 1. Where the fuck is he? Did I miss him? I'm like 30 hours in now. I don't want to restart the game.

    I've been poking around and trying to avoid spoilers to check. This is before the celebration I see everyone mention. I told Lae'zel no because I wanted to do it later. It seems like the option is gone now. Does it ever come back? Is there any console command or mod to fix it?

    Over the years it's become tougher and tougher to find good sources of information for popular games with gaming journalism websites having a lot of SEO. The Fextralife wiki is garbage and was garbage for other games I've played before too.

    My knowledge of 5e is definitely useful for some things but it also feels like a hindrance at times. I chose to make a character into the Battle Master subclass of Fighter. I misread quite a few of the maneuvers.

    • Commander's Strike uses one of your attacks and a superiority die to allow an ally to immediately make an attack as an action. This is useful for getting extra attacks out of especially heavy hitters like rogues. In BG3 it lets them make an extra attack on their turn. And I think they don't get any extra damage from the superiority die.
    • Maneuvering Attack uses a superiority die to allow an ally to use their reaction to move up to half their speed and not trigger opportunity attacks from the target of the attack. In BG3 it lets effectively lets them get a free disengage on their turn (so not just against your target). So it's a little better and a little worse.

    These were two of my favorite abilities as a fighter and it helped encourage me to keep other players focused when it wasn't their turn. Also, we had a big group, so getting to do something small when it wasn't your turn helped with the boredom.

    I'm not complaining, some of the changes are good and some are bad. All in all you can't really compare the two because one is a videogame and one is a tabletop game. A lot of the abilities have great QoL changes for videogames. Guidance lasting for a while is great. Many abilities that last a long time now just last until a rest. True Strike got a buff -- it's not necessarily great or anything but not pointless anymore. (True Strike did have some very small very niche uses but all in all it was mostly bad since it's better to just attack twice 99% of the time.)

    It feels like some of the spells have descriptions slightly wrong but maybe I'm just confused. I'm enjoying the game. It's rough around the edges but I do like it.

    US, Georgia if it matters.

    I just got laid off. Oof. Am I missing anything? I've never been laid off or fired before so it's all new to me. Just sanity checking myself.

    1. Tomorrow I'm going to write down all my job responsibilities before I forget them. For updating my resume.
    2. Figure out how to file for unemployment.
    3. Figure out what I need for COBRA benefits.
    4. Print and sign my separation agreement.
    5. Ensure I have access to my paystubs.

    The obvious thing being to start applying for new jobs lol.

    Note that I mean the open version VSCodium and not VSCode. Even after manually installing the Python and Pylance vsix files into Codium I wasn't getting the Pylance hints in the editor. I find them super useful for ersatz static typing and just general problems.
