@sean I see plenty of those in various facebook groups and while they seem usually open to new channels, fediverse (twitter-like) is not really popular in many circles. Better chance to get on Discord or Pleroma where you're not limited to one fraction of thought at a time. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Fediverse: I (the whitest, cishet-est person imaginable) have been unexpectedly put on the diversity & inclusion team at $dayjob. Our task is to make recommendations to the bosses and the board on how to improve our practices and make our workplace more welcoming for everyone.

I want to use this platform to do an excellent job. So please help me! What resources should I be looking at, what best practices are there, who should I talk with? This is in the UK if this matters at all.

@sean I more stylish title would be "Boring Game - day 6428" ;-)

Also I strongly hope the fridge won't wield a +6 enchanted broadsword at me.

@angristan No, it's not great, it's _large_. ๐Ÿ˜‰

No wonder that big tech companies get interested in OSM. I missed that footnote of the report that tries to value #OpenStrretMap: โ€œCombining the total replacement cost of the OSM database, the value of the software development effort and industry standard maintenance costs yielded a total community replacement cost of $1,672,415,000โ€.

#DOFH excuse:

Server refuses to accept handshakes due to COVID-19. @dofh_excuses

@tuh @hypolite majority of the human population on planet Earth are assholes.

@hypolite @sebsauvage giveaway or putting gog and humblebundle drm-free games online? which is not particularly nice IMHO.

Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?

@Cambria @Gina @vordenken @ekaitz_zarraga I for one would be happy to hear actual experience and recommendation for a performant AMD card, since the net is full of hearsay.

Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.

It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:

We're happy to be here! #introductions

@sirikon your problem is not with the hardware but with your own software. If their driver work and your OS components doesn't then it's not their responsibility.

@danisantos @vordenken @ekaitz_zarraga @Gina When I wanted to upgrade I have tried to extensively look around about performance and prices and support, and _had_ to buy an , since was either less performant or more expensive; as for support the AMD seems to have much better Linux support but not without (some serious) glitches (similar to NVidia).
If you need 3D HQ performance Nvidia seems better, if you need raw GPU midrange AMD may be more economic.

@sirikon possibly. But I am using so I don't start saying "fuck" just because something isn't 100% perfect. Maybe if you're a paying windoze customer you shall expect everything work as you want and when it doesn't you clearly get your money back. ๐Ÿ˜„
I usually pull up arandr (or equivalent) and set the displays once and save it; I prefer manually putting them in place, resolution.

@sirikon @Gina @ekaitz_zarraga So yeah that's a real problem: you cannot get an equivalent of an RTX for the same magnitude of price.

@sirikon I guess your playback problem can be fixed, I suspect improper use, but I do not even have a 4k video source handy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

About the standards: I agree. It is getting better now that they open source large parts of their drivers.

About "others always work": naah, I have seen "settings lowered due to low card performance" on amd a few times already. ๐Ÿ™‚ And "why does it crash" seems to be a recurring pattern, too.

@ekaitz_zarraga @Gina Then maybe it isn't fair that you label a card "shit" which you neither use nor need. ๐Ÿ˜‰
But I immediately apologise: you labeled their business methods, and that's fine. ๐Ÿ‘
