I thought Kenobi was rather awful. Probably some of the worst writing and directing to come out of a major production company.

Imo, The Acolyte hasn't been that bad so far. It's not amazing, mind you, and it still suffers from the plague of mediocrity that seems to be going around in the new movies and shows that have been coming out, but it's definitely watchable. The set and costume design is great, the acting is alright, directing is alright, but the writing has been rather hit or miss, so far.

I would be curious what the actual political distribution is on Lemmy. Though, I think It would be very tough to accurately survey that.

Finally, a good meme utilizing the Gadsden Flag. That's a fair criticism of libertarianism, imo.

What does that have to do with any of what I just said?

In that same vein, keep in mind that the exchange of labor functions the same as the exchange of any other good. By extension, it can be described through supply and demand. If the cost of labor increases, then the demand for labor will drop — this means fewer people will be hired, and people lose their jobs (as employers can no longer afford them). People are paid for the value of their work. If an employee is unable to produce value equal to or greater than minimum wage for a specific job, then they will not be hired. What this means is that minimum wages can actually have effects that are to the detriment of employees.

If operational costs surpass current revenue, then the business must either increase revenue (through potentially increasing prices) or go out of business. Yes, businesses seek to maximize revenue, but greed can only go so far as people are willing to pay.

Low and unpredictable pay: The regulation sets a minimum wage for engaged time, and a minimum per-kilometre vehicle allowance to compensate workers for their vehicle expenses.

It's likely, imo, that these changes will cause the prices for these services to increase substantially — minimum rates create market inefficiencies through deadweight loss.

I'm not sure if they count as underrated, but the band that immediately comes to mind is The Dear Hunter.

Looking at the resource usage of mine, a tiny cheap VPS for $4/mo would be enough

Not including the time cost to manage it.

For example, say an instance C is not defederated with B nor A. Can a user on A see users from B if they visit a community on C? If so, to what extent can the users from A and B interact with each other on C?

Unfortunately, a Linksys E8450 of mine has succumbed to the OKOD (OpenWRT Kiss of Death) (in case you are unfamiliar). From what I understand, it should be recoverable from it's current effectively bricked state. I've tried going through the process, but I haven't had too much luck, and I'm somewhat stuck at the moment, so I would appreciate some guidance. There's two potential objectives that I am hoping to acheive: the first, and primary, objective is to simply recover the router from its currently bricked state so that it can be used like normal, and secondly, if possible, recover the data, and configuration that was on it.

I have tried following this guide, but I'm not sure what I am supposed to do at the end. I completed the last step, but the router still isn't able to boot on its own. If I run boot from the U-Boot console, it appears to be able to boot into the OpenWRT CLI, but if I then reboot from that CLI, it shows the following error:

F0: 102B 0000
F6: 0000 0000
V0: 0000 0000 [0001]
00: 0000 0000
BP: 0400 0041 [0000]
G0: 1190 0000
T0: 0000 02D7 [000F]

That same error is what shows when I watch the serial output of the router while it boots from the power switch.

My Linksys E8450 has succumbed to the OKOD (OpenWRT Kiss of Death). In case you are unaware, the OKOD essentially is the E8450 spontaneously dying. loss of power, or a reboot can lead to it completely dying — the lights don't come on, and it is essentially bricked. Afaik, it is currently unknown exactly what causes it.

Anyways, it may be possible to recover, and I am currently working on that, but should I not be able to recover it, I will need to purchase a new router. To that end, I am looking for recommendations for a new router that is equal to, or better than the Linksys E8450 (it must be well supported by OpenWRT).

I may just buy another E8450, but I am curious if there is a better alternative.

I encounter situations like this rather often where I am responding to a comment that contains many individual points/statements. I typically will respond with a single comment that contains a quote of each point that is being responded to with my response under neath the respective quote — and, sometimes, for added clarity, a horizontal line separating each response. For example:

Statement 1

My response to Statement 1


Statement 2

My response to Statement 2


etc.

I wonder if it would be better practice to have atomic responses to comments — create a single comment for each individual statement, i.e. spawn a new thread for each new atomic topic. This would allow scores to be representative of each specific response rather than an average of the total, and it may also help with clarity when reading through the comment section, as well as easing the creation of responses (not needing to rely on formatting so much). For example

Comment 1 in reply to comment with multiple points:

Statement 1.

My response to Statement 1.

Comment 2 in reply to the comment with multiple points:

Statement 2.

My response to Statement 2.

etc.

[...] From June 1 to September 30, 2024, adults over the age of 19 will be able to bring and consume alcohol at the following beaches between the hours of 11am and 9pm:

  • Jericho
  • Spanish Banks
  • Locarno Beach
  • Second Beach (Stanley Park)
  • Kitsilano Beach
  • John Hendry / Trout Lake Beach
  • New Brighton Beach

[...]

When visiting a beach pilot site this summer, please be mindful of the following guidance:

  • Don’t bring glass to the beach – broken glass can cause injury to yourself and others
  • Respect other beach users – be mindful of the personal space of others and keep music and noise to an appropriate volume
  • Properly dispose of trash in a nearby waste bin or take it away with you
  • Avoid entering the water with alcohol or if intoxicated

In support of the program, visitors can expect to see more Park Rangers on hand to provide support and guidance, as well as added waste bins and recycling stations. [...]

Jimmy the goat was rejected by his mother, so Hector Aubertin stepped up and became his best friend [...] "Everywhere we go, people are doing double takes," Aubertin told As It Happens host Nil Köksal. "He's probably had his picture taken easily 100 times." [...] "After the first week or so, we formed a bond. I literally cannot go anywhere without him or he just starts blaa-ing. He wants to know where I am. He needs to be with me." [...] So when it came time to go on a long-planned road trip to Edmonton with his daughter to visit her sisters, Aubertin figured he had no choice but to bring Jimmy along for the ride. [...] "We go everywhere. We go to the stores. We go to Canadian Tire. I can get him to come to me, you know. I can get him to lay down if I need to. He listens very well," he said. "He's like a dog, but twice as fun and just a little bit harder to train." [...] "He is absolutely my best friend. We go everywhere together," Aubertin said. "He's done so much for me."

During 2013–2017, casualty rates per 100 million miles were 5.16 (95% CI 4.92 to 5.42) for E- HE vehicles and 2.40 (95%CI 2.38 to 2.41) for ICE vehicles, indicating that collisions were twice as likely (RR 2.15; 95% CI 2.05 to 2.26) with E-HE vehicles. Poisson regression found no evidence that E-HE vehicles were more dangerous in rural environments (RR 0.91; 95% CI 0.74 to 1.11); but strong evidence that E-HE vehicles were three times more dangerous than ICE vehicles in urban environments (RR 2.97; 95% CI 2.41 to 3.7). Sensitivity analyses of missing data support main findings.

On June 1, 2024, the general minimum wage increases from $16.75 to $17.40 an hour.

The 3.9% increase also applies to minimum-wage rates for resident caretakers, live-in home-support workers and live-in camp leaders. The increase will help approximately 240,000 workers who currently earn less than $17.40 per hour.

On Dec. 31, 2024, the minimum piece rates for the hand-harvesting of the 15 crops specified in the Employment Standards Regulation will also increase by the same percentage.

[...]

In February 2024, government amended the Employment Standards Act so that future increases to the minimum rates will happen automatically, based on the previous year’s average inflation rate for B.C. This will provide certainty and predictability for workers and employers. Minimum-wage earners will be able to count on increases that keep pace with inflation.
