I’ve been at multiple businesses that still used electric forklifts from what I’m pretty sure must be the late 80s. I was told that the newer ones they had were pretty similiar models and they all used lead-acid. I guess it’s just more reliable and repairable because of simplicity. Also I’m 100% sure that there are no trucks that run on lead-acid batteries, maybe as a hybrid.

Find should already be installed but depending on how the files are named
ls should do.
You probably want to do something similiar to this snippet:
# Create a temporary directory and save it's path TMPD=$(mktemp -d) # Extract the archive to that directory 7z x -o$TMPD $1 # Convert the images to PDF img2pdf $(ls -vd $TMPD/**) -o $2 # Delete the temporary directory rm $TMPD
doing this on Python or whatever language?
If you’re on Linux or MacOS doing this with a bash script would be the easiest imo, since there is ready-made software for all the steps.
You can even automate the downloading with e.g. wget.
Should be straight forward (just a series of commands and some command substitution for the find part) as long as you don’t have to many images.
On windows you could (probably) do the same with a python script (or maybe powershell idk)
Are email requirement the default for lemmy instances or it is something an operator has to choose?
That can be configured.
Some tools are easier to learn than others, because of the nature of their design.
Yep, and modern computers are incredibly hard to understand tools, by nature of their design. By trying to hide this complexity from users you are creating more (unnessecary) complexity and through that make it even harder for users to understand how the system works all the while potentially limiting its usefulness. Free software is about enabling users to fully utilize their hardware, not about making them slaves to a software. Linux is the most practical FOSS OS we have and it works on 40 year old principles, like all other major operating systems. We should focus on making the most of it, not on hiding its age.
If you feel something could be solved in a better way you are free to do so or at least find someone to do so. If you are unable to find or comprehend existing documentation, for whatever reason, I’m certain you will find someone willing to help you in no time and free of charge. But don’t complain if your only problem is that you want to stay ignorant.
If a tool was over-engineered and its alternative was perceived as more straightforward by the average user
The problem was that Linux installers are less over-engineered than some people feel they should be.
An English speaking American could very well enrich their life by learning Spanish
The point was, that if they don’t want to learn spanish, then they have no business complaining about being unable to communicate when in spain.
People do know how to learn, they just have different priorities
Then that’s their fault, and not the installers. Tools require at least some knowledge to use them. If someone doesn’t acquire this knowledge they will at best break their tools (which is pretty difficult with computers) or at worst hurt others. The comparison isn’t with “would you learn useless language x” but “would you learn language x if you plan to move to a country where it is the official language”.
I think private schools are ok if they:
a currency like Bitcoin credible as a store of value
without impinging on the privacy of the currency creator
I think you will have a hard time in any jurisdiction if you want to stay anonymous as a creator of such a system without making a loss
There are schemes that use cryptographic tokens instead of blockchains that can actually provide some anonymity and they don’t even waste that much energy. (e.g. GNU Taler)
My point was that if individuals make up for less emission non-individual actors will automatically make up for more of the total emissions, so the screenshotted post is kind of silly.
I’m sure there will probably be no substantial change (at least in time) if we just let consumers decide, but that doesn’t except them from being responsible for driving around in child-killing, cancer-inducing, environment-destroying and fossil-fuel-wasting private tanks.
Are you fascinated when someone using linux writes something positive about Windows? no? because it NEVER happens.
I wonder why :D
Get away from Microsoft? Nope - Proton can never do that, these games still use and depend on DirectX, and if Microsoft wanted to be dicks, they could shut down Proton in a day. Just as they considered with Wine itself years ago, which they still could.
Google vs Oracle?!
Multiple German states failed to upend Windows Os
Umh what? Munich (a single city, not a state) used linux for some time (allegedly) pretty successfully, they switched back to windows because of corruption and microsoft moving their german headquarters to munich.
anticheat […] needs to work
Anticheat is like DRM, it can’t work by design if you own the machine it runs on. It’s just wastes power for nothing, why should anyone spend the effort to get it running?
You spend hours looking for a way to make the game run when on Windows all you’d need to do is hit “play”;
Is this a Linux bug or a shortcoming of the publisher?
Bans me and other valid members for no reason, had no guts to sort this out via DM and decided to ignore me + others…
Something you would never do lol
Do you need DDoS protection? If not don’t get it, most providers are quite shady and most attacks (anecdotal) aren’t super high volume or especially advanced. If your income doesn’t depend on availability you can even just ignore attacks until they find something else to do. I only have experience with european and especially german hosters, idk if that helps depending on where you are from, you might want to find something more local.
In germany we have glass bottles that are reused, you pay a per bottle deposit (0,08€, non-reusable is 0,25€) and get it back when you bring the bottle back to the market. The market will send the bottle back to the company it came from and they will clean it and reuse it for bottling again if it’s still good.
There is also reuse for plastic bottles, but it is less common, at least everywhere I lived. (reuse is done regionally) Also they can’t be reused as often as glass bottles. One could reuse metal containers, but that isn’t done. I’d guess because they aren’t transparent and so cannot be inspected by bottling systems as easily.
Soft-drinks usually aren’t reusable, because they aren’t distributed locally.
I’m not sure they would survive nearly as long as lead-acid, but I’m sure that they would be way less complicated and dangerous than hydrogen.
