@claudiom A news story copy/pasted in the comments of the video of pack of dogs attacking a car claims it happened to a guy named Acar (pronounced "Ajar") in Doğan.

So a proper headline should be:

"Doğan Dogs attack Acar's car."

(I'm guessing this works much better in English than Turkish.)

"Is the audio having issues? Why is there so much static? Is it skipping because of a wonky Bluetooth connection?"

"Oh, nah, that's just how this music sounds."

real talk Queer Eye is lovely to watch and more reality TV should be like this

none of the whole forced competition/conflict bullshit, just half an hour to 45 minutes of people being aggressively nice to each other

@ted People cared about the clock in the left quite a bit on the Internet. This happened a year ago, though. It was due to phones adopting notches.

As it's not possible to move the clock around without root, people stopped making a fuss over the course of a year.

Those who could root (and/or install a custom ROM) to change it, did. Those would couldn't move it went on to complaining about other things.

Understanding environmental impact is hard.

Me and my gas-guzzling mini-van have a much lower impact than most "green car" owners... simply because I drive way, way less than average.

Planes aren't bad for the environment because they burn lots of fuel. Planes are bad for the environment because they are convenient and encourage, enable and create a market for massive amounts of travel.

Switching to advanced, super-clean vehicles won't improve things nearly as much as telecommuting would.

@theoutrider If it isn't fixed upstream in the kernel anytime soon (UGH!), you may need to start thinking about LTS distros for the laptop at some point, with the latest browsers on top.

linuxlifecycle.com/

A trick is finding one that is free, has desktop support (especially for browsers, like Firefox), will last more than a year or two, and has a new enough kernel — yet not too new.

Of course, it's sucky, but not as bad as using what will become an old, unsupported distro? *sigh*

@theoutrider Apparently, there were TWO models of the MacBook Air at the same time you got yours, and the more common variant doesn't use NVME, but yours does... and everyone with your particular one is stuck with 4.15 and there has been no fix. 😱

(Summary of reddit.com/r/Fedora/comments/9 )

@theoutrider The solution is, obviously, to burn all tech to the ground and throw the remains off the top a very tall building. 🤪

@theoutrider It's obviously between 4.15 (Jan 28, 2018) and 4.16 (Apr 1, 2018), and I think it's in this file: github.com/torvalds/linux/comm

Considering it's related to disconnection issues, I think it _might_ be this commit:

github.com/torvalds/linux/comm

and its sibling commit

github.com/torvalds/linux/comm

But IANAKH (I am not a Kernel Hacker)

@theoutrider I've been trying to track this down as best I can.

Kernel.org bug @ bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.c

Red Hat bug @ bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.c

Arch forum post @ bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.ph

Original Kernel.org bug bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.c (where they came up with the original fix; this was what made it work in the first place)

@theoutrider Can you do "lspci" in the Linux terminal on 4.14.x? (Perhaps searching for exact NVMe version might help?)

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir) and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.

@theoutrider Sounds like it could be a form of tinnitus.

Specifically, it could be Middle Ear Myoclonus (MEM) Tinnitus. It's basically a spasm, like a hiccup, of ear muscles.
