    Prohibit it for everyone and take your lumps, or don't. Doing things that only affect non-voters is pathetic cowardice.

    Is there a way to add "Run as Sudo" to context menu like with Windows?
  • I don't know why everyone is getting self-righteous about this. I've used Linux since the mid-90s, and occasionally I find it easier to just run a GUI file manager as root to do some filter and deletions of things in caches and such that need root permission. Hell, I want to edit the files in /etc/wireguard for my tunnels; should I only do this at a sudo prompt in the terminal when I'm perfectly capable of pulling it up in Kate and copypasting stuff in?

    Get off your high horses, there's plenty of valid use cases if you're using your head.

    Vernor Vinge, author of many influential hard science fiction works, died March 20 at the age of 79. Vinge sold his first science-fiction story in 1964, "Apartness", which appeared in the June 1965 issue of New Worlds. In 1971, he received a PhD (Math) from UCSD, and the next year began teaching at

    Thank you for the great work, Vernor. You'll be missed.

    We have our house and a cabin. While I guess I could make an area for the cabin, it has it's own areas that I'd like to manage separately (and copy automations directly).

    I have purchased a HA Cloud sub but I don't seem to be able to get the cabin to connect to Cloud.

    Do I need a separate sub for the cabin at full price? This seems a little over the top, not to mention clunky to manage with different Nabu Casa logins.

    Or am I just going about this wrong? If anyone else manages two properties and integrates it nicely, I'd love to hear your solutions. I'm mainly subbing to Cloud because of the better TTS and STT response. Maybe I just invest in a skookum whisper/piper box instead?

    I don't see that there's any sort of integration for writing code to process information from HA entities like Node Red + Companion. Am I missing something and this is more than just an interface for the config files and maybe a git client for those config files?

    These things aren't bad, I've got a few that I use sort of successfully, but the speaker and mic aren't very powerful. I was thinking of building one with an ESP32 and i2S (not i2c, that threw me off too) speaker/mic, but I'm wondering if I'd be reinventing the wheel here if there's a better alternative already out there.

    Got a young guy that needs a reasonable used laptop, in the $2-300 range. Looking for smooth but not spectacular graphics, and a 15" screen or better. Preferably with 2 drive slots so he can have an NVME or other SSD for the OS and a large rust drive for installing games. It's going to be plugged in when used, and weight isn't a great concern, it's just for travelling with.

    Any suggestions on what to look for on eBay?

    Need help with most.

    If I pipe in something to most that's wider than my terminal width, it'll page it sideways but only single character at a time with an arrow key. I want most to behave like less, which will scroll sideways with an arrow key almost a full page (60 columns I believe), which most will do also if I use Tab/Ctrl-B or ">" and "<" (as gleaned from the man page). But I have no use for single character scrolling, so I'd like arrows to do the same as Tab and <>.

    Is there a way to change the default behaviour of most to the same horizontal scrolling behaviour as less? I would just use less except it displays the first page of a command like docker ps with lines wrapped for some reason (maybe this is some limitation in Dolphin?). If I scroll right the other columns show up right, but for some reason less and more both mess up the first page. No clue why most works correctly. Frankly, if I could fix less I'd be happier since my muscle memory makes me want to pipe to less all the time anyway, and it's installed by default in most distros I use, unlike most.

    Also, trying to search up help on anything with a name like "most" is next to impossible.

I have my subs and I watch them, and then I go and touch grass because I'm not sitting there watching trash that is being pushed at me on the feed.

    cross-posted from: https://literature.cafe/post/2164461

    I have been keeping an eye on this series over in !BannedBooks@literature.cafe and was intending to link the discussions for SF titles that I saw. The Handmaid's Tale is definitely an SF title that has seen it's share of fans and detractors. It has been banned or attempted to be banned in many jurisdictions including Western ones.

    What is the communities thoughts on this book, does it unfairly extend Christian philosophy into questionable territory or does it not go far enough? Is it pornography, and if so, why? Let's hear your thoughts.

    theconversation.com Sci-fi books are rare in school even though they help kids better understand science

    Despite their scarcity, science fiction books are highly sought after by elementary school students.

    I got interested in SF because the librarian in my elementary was a SF lover. There were racks of paperbacks that I gobbled up and it's stuck with me for decades since. It makes me sad to think that kids don't have the same chance I did to get interested at an early age in the most imaginative genre of fiction. We all need to do our part to pass it on.

    What are your suggestions for getting young people interested in science fiction?

    A few I remember from that time:

    Edgar Rice Burroughs Barsoom series

    Heinlein's juveniles like Podkayne of Mars and Have Spacesuit, Will Travel

    McCaffery's Dragonriders of Pern

    Niven's Known Space books

Are these items showing up in my feed because the community has not set their language, or is something going on with language filtering on All?
