Now they get to experience what living under an actual oppressive regime is like.








oh yeah I use that feature all the time as well, ssh is full of gems :)










Yeah, these models take a lot of juice to run unfortunately. Until either hardware gets a lot cheaper, or models get a lot more efficient it’s going to be prohibitive for most people to run them locally. Stuff like pruning is actually really promising on the latter front.



Looks like the latest version streams output from one command to the other. For example, when I run for i in (seq 1 5); sleep 1; echo $i; end | cat I see the numbers show up one at a time.







I’ve been using fish for years, and highly recommend it. In particular, I find that fish has excellent contextual completion based on folder as well as great highlighting.





The real cleverness lies in being able to write code that seems self evident in hindsight. Anybody can write convoluted code that’s impossible read after, but it’s a lot harder to express the problem using simple and clear code. The ability to understand a complex problem then express it using clean and maintainable code is what separates junior developers from senior ones.





I really hope the trend of organizations standing up their own instances keeps growing. MIT and the Internet Archive have their own instances as well now. ActivityPub could end up becoming the new RSS going forward.









I set up my mom with a laptop using Ubuntu a while back, and it just works. Back when she used Windows, things broke all the time, she’d install random things cause sites tricked her into it, etc. With Linux all the problems are gone. All she does is basically use the browser and email. Once you set that up there’s really no other maintenance involved.

Linux is a great option for non technical users as long as there’s somebody to set it up for them initially.




Not exactly a surprise given that something like 90% of staff is gone.


@vi21@lemmy.ml it’s a guide based on personal experience, so some advice is different from the official recommendations. I personally prefer the top version of formatting because it lines up with :import form, e.g:

(ns some.ns
  (:require 
   [clojure.string :as str])
  (:import
   [java.util Date]))

That’s just not okay. Presumably they didn’t want to let him off without some consequences.

Seems like the university, who would presumably be the victim here, seemed ok with it. What message in particular do you think the regime was trying to send by going after such activity?

Given the number of people going through the justice system, some are going to be suicidal.

And they just happen to be political activists.

It’s mostly biased against people who live in poverty.

People in poverty are exploited as slave labor. US drug laws in particular are designed specifically to round up poor minorities so that they can be enslaved. This is a pretty well documented fact by the way. However, that’s far from the only demographic that the regime goes after. People like Swartz are prosecuted because of their ideas, and it’s absurd to claim they can mount an effective legal defence against the power of the regime.


Why? To be clear, MIT adopted a neutral stance.

What was the goal of the prosecution?

Doesn’t seem like a stretch to me. It’s not like people who are susceptible to suicide are unheard particularly rare.

You were literally just telling me this is rare in a previous comment:

There are obviously greater systemic problems with the US’s prison system and treatment of people post-prison, but millions of people go through that ordeal without committing suicide.

So which is it?

The system isn’t equal, but Aaron Swartz was not the type of person that the system is biased against.

Seems to me that political activists like Swartz are precisely the demographic that the system is biased against.


The fact that the regime went after Swartz even though the university did not want to press charges clearly demonstrates this was a malicious prosecution. Furthermore, as somebody else in the thread notes, this isn’t the first time a person being prosecuted by the regime ended up committing suicide. Seems like a bit of a stretch to claim that two random people just happened to have predisposition to suicide.

Your argument is based on the assumption that the legal system in US is fair and equal. This is clearly contradicted by mountains of evidence to the contrary. Apply the same logic you would apply if this case happened in China.


You’re correct that the tweet gets the part about him having already being sentenced wrong, but as I’ve explained I don’t see that as the key point.

Meanwhile, victim blaming is a really low tactic. Your state has a history of aggressively prosecuting and harassing people to make examples of them. Two examples are Assange and Manning being tortured with solitary confinement. It’s almost certain that Swartz was put under psychological duress that led to his suicide. US is particularly sadistic when it comes to political dissidents.


You’re not wrong that he wasn’t convicted when he committed suicide. I’m just saying I don’t see why you think that’s the relevant part of the story. We don’t know what the details were or why he chose to commit suicide as a result of this prosecution. Saying most people don’t react that way just serves to deflect the blame from the state. He reacted that way, and if the state did not choose to attack him then he would’ve very likely been alive today. This man is a victim of the US regime plain and simple.


Sure, he likely wouldn’t have got the maximum sentence, but that’s just distracting from the point that prosecution by the regime was what led to his suicide.


It’s because you’re incapable of acknowledging basic facts about the nature of the empire. The tweet is objectively correct. You could argue it’s not nuanced, but it’s simply a fact that Swartz committed suicide as a result of being prosecuted by the US regime.


Why do you always feel the need to carry water for your regime?



Basically means that machine learning models can be asked to perform tasks and then use external tools to try and accomplish these tasks. The feedback on whether the task was accomplished successfully is then used to tune the model so it performs better in the future.

This article from Google shows how this tech is being applied to make robots that can interact with the real world in a meaningful way.


I keep an eye on it, but haven’t managed to run it on anything either so far.




You “debunked” a straw man. I talked about xenophobia in US and simply said that USSR produced positive image for aliens in its shows. Dude. Meanwhile, your “debunking” exposed you for the ignoramus that you are. I can only assume those pics came from your personal spank bank.


Absolutely hilarious you can’t admit that’s Stalin being depicted in a menshivik poster. 🤡


Stalin wasn’t Jewish last I checked. Oh, and remind me what Soviet symbol is it in that last pic while you’re at it?

Pretty hilarious how you found a bunch of anti-soviet menshivik propaganda and didn’t even realize it. Keep on digging there little buddy. 😂



Ah yes famous USSR propaganda depicting Stalin as the devil. You are very intelligent. 😂


Yup, US aliens are often a projection of xenophobia, and USSR generally portrayed aliens as being friendly and enlightened.




The fact that it’s becoming difficult to tell reality from satire really underscores how messed up our world is.


Value is created through labor and thus wealth is necessarily the product of labor as well.



That’s literally what the stats show. Most people are worse off now in Romania and they know it. Of course, an ideologue like you doesn’t care about actual facts.



The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
