Isn't it odd that the USA is the only country in the world where people resist wearing masks? Where a scientific issue is treated as a political issue? And it's an issue that is dead simple and obvious to anyone who thinks about it. And, wearing a mask is seen as a threat to masculinity?

We've got a goddam weird-ass society in this country that is deeply screwed up.

I always thought of Gnome as independent of Canonical and Ubuntu. I agree that Mate is not any lighter weight, but wasn't clear what you did or didn't like. On my chromebooks I run Gallium OS and XFCE there really shines. It is based on Ubuntu as well though so YMMV
I don't like it, I consider XFCE a more reliable and consistent desktop experience.

TL;DR The only thing that matters to Republican primary voters is who is the most loyal to Trump. That's it. Qanon conspiracy theoriests, shady pasts, etc. are irrelevant as long as the candidate is the most loyal to Trump. Trump's own endorsement isn't enough to counter act that in the case of NC. The Republican party is a broken cult party. Period.

Sometimes I don't know what the beginning of a regular expression is by the time I get to the end of the regular expression. Never mind months later!


Dear #

I am pretty noob and I am still in the process learning... I have question about rendering settings... I have an old but still pretty decent GPU: a Nvidia 970M.

I did several Cycles tests (2560*2560, 128 sample) and I found out that using CUDA GPU+CPU @ 64*64 is 40% faster than rendering with just the GPU @ 256*256... And I am just figuring out why... When I bought my laptop that was the best card available, I bought it with the intention to learn better Blender, but it is just when 2.80 came out that I really started to study Blender seriously.

Now, since I am a # user I am wondering, thinking about rendering speed, if for the future would be better buying a powerful CPU like a Threadripper and a decent AMD GPU rather than buy another Nvidia card.

I mean AMD is always better for Linux but just focus primarily on rendering speed.

Hi Daniel. Definitely prefer AMD over Intel, as they have better performance for a lower price. You do not need expensive threadripper however.
Regarding the GPU take a look at the open data of blender
GPU is almost always fwouldaster then CPU but mostly way more expensive. I'd recommend buying hardware of the previous generations as it is mostly way cheaper.
I currently do well with a powerfull laptop (i7 4 core + 1050) work work and a less powerfull desktop just for rendering. Having a dedicated rendering pc even if it's slower already helps a lot. Currently I'm looking into buying an AMD ryzen 5 2600 and a 1080ti for it, to upgrade it.

Learning a lot as I migrate around Friendica and federation/fediverse. Right now question of the tip of my head, should I open a Mastodon account? I've seen an intro video, where they recommend it. Should I create accounts on other fediverse's such as peertube, pixelfed, or GNU social?? Just really curious and trying to get my bearing, because one of the things that attracted me to Friendica was that it could reach/talk/view with other branches of the Fediverse. Guidance and thought would be much appreciated. Thank you.

With a Friendica account you can interact with accounts on Mastodon, Pleroma, Pixelfed, GNU Social, Peertube, ...

There is no need in creating othet accounts, just follow the accounts you want to follow.

I hope they mean *ex-election commissioner" because I can't imagine trusting a person like this with being involved in managing free and fair elections for all.
