Counterpoint, if you're in an area with a good composting program, then putting your compostables in the compost bin will allow it to be turned into electricity for your home, fertilizer, and other useful products.

Oof. Well thanks for the context. That's unfortunate. I'm not a huge fan of Biden, but he's been respectable, boring, and actually benefitted the American people during his presidency, all of which are qualities I appreciate in a president. That's another thing I hate about trump. He's so desperate for attention that he does ridiculous shit on a daily basis, multiple times per day, just to stay in the headlines. I don't want a celebrity hound for a president, I want a competent leader that quietly does their job.

Can your cellphone identify the chemical composition of rocks 1000 feet underground, or scan someone for invasive pathogens, or identify lifeforms 10 KM away?

I just want you to know that I remember you from your sweater post, the one that you knitted, and I remember you saying that you post all these possums and racoons to try to bring some positivity to Lemmy, and I really appreciate it. Thank you!

That's kind of a "write your own destiny" career. Nobody will teach you how to get there, you have to seize it!

Everyone I know still works from home, but they all use MacBook Pros.

a death outside my complex from bludgeoning .

So, ban blunt objects?

No no. Decriminalize all crimes, ban access to things for law-abiding citizens.

It'll likely crash the editor, but if it doesn't then you get cool Matrix code. That's actually how we used to make Matrix backgrounds back in the day, open an image in a text editor, copy the code, transform it to vertical, change it to green, eureka!

I completely agree! It actually received a fair amount of criticism because of that, but my wife and I appreciated it for that. It was a feel good movie, and very well done. They manipulated our emotions, but only to make us feel better.


We watched this last night and it's definitely the best movie we've seen all year, probably the last few years.

Viggo Mortensen was nominated for Best Actor for his performance in this movie and it's apparent why. He completely disappears into the role, with no remnant of Aragorn, or Captain Fantastic anywhere on screen. You forget who you are even watching.

Mahershala Ali did win an Academy Award for his performance, which is reserved, powerful, intriguing, and believable all at once. I've only seen Ali portray villains before, and I had forgotten about my previous conception of him within the first few scenes.

The chemistry between the two actors is remarkable, and they play off each other very well throughout the movie. We found the movie to have a perfect blend of seriousness, humor, heartbreak, and triumph. The script is great, the acting superb, the directing stellar, and the music is flat out amazing.

The movie doesn't pull punches with the overt racism of the South during that era. The pair - genius musician, and street smart bodyguard - encounter multiple dangerous situations. They save each other, both literally and figuratively, throughout the movie.

Overall I can't praise this movie enough. It is an outstanding accomplishment, and deserved every award that it won. Check it out!


Newpipe hasn't worked on my Android for several days now. Has YouTube blocked the app, or did an update break it?


I've been using Arch on an old laptop for a few years now, but I use Pop on my gaming desktop. I've wanted to switch to Arch for a long while now, but haven't had the motivation (if it ain't broke, and all that). I'm finally ready to do it, but I'm a little concerned about my gaming experience. Are there any gotchas for gaming with an i7 and a 3070 ti that I should be aware of before I make the switch? Is it pretty seamless? Can I still use a freesync monitor with the g-sync compatibility setting? Is it easy to install the Nvidia drivers and well documented on the wiki? I'm open to information about any other sticky scenarios you guys encountered getting Arch set up for use as a daily driver and gaming computer.

Edit: is there any way to backup my internal drive mappings and mounting points, or will I need to set all of that up again?

I've only ever used Gnome for Arch, but one of the things that has me motivated to switch is that KDE 6 supports HDR. Does anyone have experience with it? Is it a pretty slick and simple DE?


Apparently if the majority of your camp supplies are alcohol, the game now gives you a hangover debuff after a long rest. Thankfully it doesn't last very long, but that's a fun little update.


I'm currently on my 3rd playthrough, and I'm playing as a dark urge character who gives into his urges. For spoiler prevention I'll describe what I just finished as vaguely as possible. I just completed the durge objective that gives you a powerful reward in act 2.

This is depressing. All of the good that I accomplished in my first two playthroughs is absent. My camp is nearly empty. Lae zel's lifeless body has been laying in my camp for 2 full acts. Karlach, Wyll, Zevlor, Damon, Jaheira, and many others are dead, either by my hand or because of my actions.

I didn't fully appreciate just how lonely and depressing, self-serving life would be. I have more gold and loot than either of my other playthroughs, and I'm more powerful, but to what end? My own lonely existence? I don't think that I will continue past this point. I've accomplished what I set out to do, which was experience the game as an evil character. I don't think I need another 50 hours of this to pound the point home.

Hats off to Larian for making such an emotional and realistic game, full of vibrant and exciting characters. I don't enjoy the world where I have betrayed them all.


In my first playthrough he was able to talk to Raphael outside of the Gauntlet of Shar. This time Raphael just left without ever giving Astarion a chance to ask any questions. So, I reloaded a save, did the whole House of Healing fight again, made sure to have Astarion selected when we approached the Gauntlet, and it auto switched to my character when the conversation started and he left again. Have they changed this sequence? Is it bugged? Do only certain dialogue choices give you a chance to barter?


I've added some instances to the instance filters, yet I continue seeing those instances. Is there something else that I need to do to block entire instances?


I hadn't tried it in 2 different playthroughs because it's rated really low online. But since I've used the other builds already, I figured I'd give it a go for Astarion in this new playthrough. He has an item that makes him invisible for two turns whenever he kills someone, which basically makes him a one man killing machine. For 3 different battles now I've split him off from the group and sent him out ahead to sneak attack the enemy group. Welp, reinforcements were never needed. He sneak attacks from range, turns invisible, moves away so he can't be detected, and attacks again. Each attack one-shots his victim, and he can make quick work of entire groups of enemies.

I can see that this build wouldn't be great for unexpected battles, or outright confrontation, but when you know that you want to fight, dang man! It's amazing.

If you happen to find that item that gives invisibility on kill, then I highly suggest getting a good bow, and giving assassin a try. It seems like it would be a good option for a playthrough without companions, as long as you are able to get back into stealth after attacking.
