Crickets from the "invade Cuba now to 'liberate' them" people, could it have something to do with the fact that Colombia is a capitalist ally of the U.S.? 🤔 Almost as if these people weren't really concerned about human rights.

Police all over America are regularly asking Shotspotter, the AI-powered microphones that "detect gunshots" to fabricate gunshots from thin air for court proceedings, according to court records we obtained.

'government meddling risk' is rich coming from the government that issues gag orders to companies on a regular basis and hosts the NSA, which among other things is known for performing industrial espionage, including on its EU allies, LMAO

Not to mention the fact that such risk is presumably rather hard to calculate up front, which governments all around the world use to their advantage. This seems more like a 'every Chinese company is actually secretly CCP owned' QAnon type shit, grow up SEC.

Incredibly exciting to get official confirmation that Germany's health service (@gematik1@twitter.com) has standardised on Matrix for secure decentralised communications, targeting all 150,000 healthcare organisations in Germany(!!!) 🤯 Read all about it at matrix.org/blog/2021/07/21/ger 💉🇩🇪🚀

Made a modified Jumpdrive image that doesn't turn of high power peripherals like the display and then charges your #pinephone when the battery is so low it can't boot a full operating system. It signifies the charging state by blinking the RGB led in red, yellow or green.

20 years ago on the web, you had to jump through tons of hoops to listen to anything resembling recorded music, but you could read some article written by someone instantly, for free. i think it's becoming the other way round now

HD broadcasting in 1948!

earlytelevision.org/grammont.h

The sets were 4:3 of course, but basically they were 4:3 720i black and white.

(in practice it was actually more like 816×736 px vs 720's 960×720, but also it was analog so the minor differences were probably lost anyway.)

The standard was used in to the 80s, but I'm having a really hard time finding any information about it.

If you're french, and you know what this was called in france, please let me know!

Hat tip to @mathew - I just learned that France had a graeter than 720i broadcast standard in the 1940s!

That's Astounding.

I gotta find some old french gear, I guess.

Ah yes, I love predictable interface names like wlp5s0f3u2
