Obviously, I am not in this situation. Related article, wondering what is happening to this woman's house/loans/expenses/rent/car payments/etc

So before conviction, when you're being held pending court proceedings, it would be inconvenient to attend your work place during that time. So I'm wondering, what happens?

If you're found not guilty after months of court hearings, are you just fucked over completely because the bank foreclosed on your house?

Being a monarch or some kind of royalty seems to be excellent financially and often overlooked.

This makes no freakin sense to me, and it's driving me bonkers. Censored for work purposes obv.

Hosts file:

1.1.1.1 site.com

$ping site.com

PING site.com (1.1.1.1)

^C

$ping http://site.com

ping: unknown host http://site.com

What?? Ping, You JUST RESOLVED site.com, why can't you resolve it now??

Why does the addition of the protocol break DNS resolution?

It's CentOS 6.10, quite old..

/etc/nsswitch has:

hosts: files dns

Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Might be late to the party, but I just discovered you can do this. Super simple and easy to do.

After having a read of the linked page, I backed up and just used this option:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Profile-sync-daemon

Installed, created config, and enabled service:

systemctl --user enable psd.service systemctl --user enable psd-resync.service

I definitely notice an increase in speed and less SSD usage should hopefully increase lifespan.

I'm sure there would be options for alternative distros, anything using Systemd should be able to use the daemon.

Had someone contact me because a browser interface was 'down' and it was actually a cert issue. It surprised me that in an IT context, this person didn't have a basic understanding of SSL certs. They didn't even know how to add a cert exception.

It got me thinking, what basic ubiquitous things am I a dumbass about outside of IT?

Ive seen lots of 'fun facts' compilations, but it would be better to get a wide range of subject suggestions that I can spend 30 minutes each or less on, and become a more capable human.

Like what subjects would plumbers consider basic knowledge? Chemical interactions between cleaning products and PVC pipes?

What would an accountant or a landscaper consider to be so basic its shocking people can live their lives without knowing any of it?

For most areas of expertise, its difficult to know even what the basics are to start with.

I have a file with content like this:

item({
     ["attr"] = {
        ["size"] = "62091";
        ["filename"] = "qBuUP9-OTfuzibt6PQX4-g.jpg";
        ["stamp"] = "2023-12-05T19:31:37Z";
        ["xmlns"] = "urn:xmpp:http:upload:0";
        ["content-type"] = "image/jpeg";
     };
     ["key"] = "Wa4AJWFldqRZjBozponbSLRZ";
     ["with"] = "email@address";
     ["when"] = 1701804697;
     ["name"] = "request";
});

I need to know what format this is, and if there exists a tool in linux already to parse this or if I need to write one myself?

Thanks!

It's personal preference, but basically edge limits that increase over time, like at 15 you're looking at +-6 months, at 20 it might be + or - 1 or 2 years. At 30 you're probably at looking at 5 years either side of 30.

Once you hit 500 the attraction window is so large it becomes mostly irrelevant, and you're judging more on aristocrical lineage and/or aristocrical diet.

It's only a few more years til 1000 (which usually turns out to be a very dull party with no surprise guests) and by that point you're lucky to find anyone attractive.

There's obviously the old 'hurr durr he's over 2000 so he must be gay now' stereotype, but as far as I can tell, attraction isn't cyclical.

Hope that helps!

A recent article: https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/money/301022706/prepare-to-find-another-70-a-week-to-get-by-in-2024-asb

says: ..if households decided the worst was over and started to feel more confident about spending, it could push up inflation

But I thought it was the opposite;

More spending means more demand means more supply, which means production costs go down (due to economies of scale)… so inflation goes down?

But saving means less spending, means less demand, means less income for business, means costs go up.. so inflation would rise?

like, GiantHairyNipplemonsters.com..

Or maybe better, the domain for beer brewed especially for gamers.. Game Ale.

"... that was.. luthis at.. gaymail.. .com???"

"Exactly, [email protected]."

".. g a y..m a i l?"

"What?? No! GAME ALE dot com!"

Just the random shit that comes into my brain when I walk without other stimulus.. surely I'm not the only one.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here, I'm using this image:

https://hub.docker.com/r/bitnami/wordpress-nginx

I updated the compose file to have un/pw for mariadb:

  mariadb:
    image: docker.io/bitnami/mariadb:11.1
    volumes:
      - '/etc/docker/mariadb-persist:/bitnami/mariadb'
    environment:
      - ALLOW_EMPTY_PASSWORD=no
      - MARIADB_USER=admin
      - MARIADB_PASSWORD=admin
      - MARIADB_DATABASE=bitnami_wordpress

But I get this error:

2023-12-03 19:03:02 3 [Warning] Access denied for user 'admin'@'172.18.0.3' (using password: NO)

using password: NO??

Sony is Sony is about to delete Mythbusters, Naked and Afraid, and tons of other Discovery shows from PlayStation users’ libraries even if they already “purchased” them.

So, if you bought a DVD licensed by Sony, can they now legally enter your house and take your DVD?

Or can Sony have some sort of DRM that prevents the DVD from playing when Sony loses the license agreement?

I'm just trying to reconcile how digital purchases can be subject to license terms changes, while a DVD apparently can't be.

They just want us to pirate everything right? Like, that is the only logical response to this.

Capitalism is so schizophrenic. Is supply and demand in a free market meant to decide the value of goods or not?? If regulations and penalties are required, why not across the board??

I think it would have played out roughly the same. Energy density of fossil fuels is ahead of everything, along with it's portability. Not to mention no one knew or cared about environmental issues then.

Might have made the transition easier though.
