my brother in christ, read the article, it has a source directly linking to a government website publishing preliminary drafts of legislative documents

kinda sick of ppl here not bothering to extend their critique of the source material beyond publisher bad lmao

iiuc easiest way to tell is to just sort comments by new, also very new comments are temporarily highlighted by a lighter grey background, but that’s about it i think 🤷‍♀️

a few years ago it was literally a handful of ppl posting 90% of links and talking to each other, witnessing firsthand how complicated it is to get over that initial user retention bump, but i’m convinced we’re over it now :)

latte with oat milk + cig 👩‍🍳🤌

(suppresses appetite and tasty, honestly ditch the cig even, i haven’t eaten in days)

y’all mfs trying to detect obvious satire challenge (impossible)

your issue is with bad urban planning, not offices lol

oh ye? i’m addicted to having a sexual relationship with ur mom gotem hehe 😎 (i’ve unsolved homelessness) (i don’t deserve housing)

you’ll probably not help that by accusing everyone with an opinion you dislike of being a cia, then it’ll be more like an eco chamber 🤷‍♀️

a person supporting nato = cia? y’all need to chill, this isn’t nearly important enough to demand such attention bruh

an account named after a movie character, about 4 months old, being supportive of the west? literally like all of reddit would be cia by that criterion lol

y’all need to calm down with suspecting ppl are cia honestly 💀😬

literally the lib equivalent of calling ppl a russian bot

Worker rights in PRC
i'm curious to get some concrete data wrt to worker rights/labour legislation in prc: is it as bad as it's often perceived in the west? has anything changed recently? there's a weird duality to it in my perception, on one side it's a relatively happy nation, but on the other side there is the crazy 996 work schedule, poor safety net that's largely substituted by investment in housing etc 🤔

the guy is a carnist, the videos may be (and probably are, he has a masters in climate policy iirc so eh) perfectly valid, but i just can’t stand observing him unironically just consuming animal products while talking about the danger of climate change, guy is a clown

another day of thanking god i don’t live in amerika 🙏😊

sorry, i don’t really understand what you’re trying to convey :(

my brother in christ, just use whatever you want, get a life 😭

oh, you meant countries, then ye, sure

i was referring mostly to support on the level of an individual, which is a lot easier to outline and quantify imo, because everything is more nuanced on a country level

it’s a much more complicated situation than is often portrayed, where everything is sublimated into homogenous good and bad guys, with no intersection

In contrast, citizens in China, India, and Turkiye prefer a quick end to the war even if Ukraine has to concede territory.

i wouldn’t say this is supporting Russia, more like wanting an end to this senseless violence (actually interesting how this is a virtually non-existent trend among westerners, i’m assuming because they’ve never had any proximity to similar violence and misery, and are therefore ready to sacrifice as many Ukranians as is takes) :(

the anglosphere can just be considered lost at this point tbh 🤷‍♀️

certainly more weights contain more general information, which is pretty useful if you’re using a model is a sort of secondary search engine, but models can be very performant in certain benchmarks while containing little general data

this isn’t really by design, up until now (and it’s still continuing to be that way), it’s just that we don’t know how to create an LLM, which can generate coherent text without absorbing a huge portion of the training material

i’ve tried several models based on facebook’s llama LLMs, and i can say that the 13B and definitely 30B versions are comparable to chatGPT in terms of quality (maybe not in terms of the amount of information it has access to, but definitely in other regards)

recent advancements in LLMs that are small enough to be accessible to regular ppl (alpaca/llama), but also performant enough to sometimes even outperform chatGPT, are more interesting to me personally

while the size of this model is certainly super impressive, even if the weights were released, it would require like half a terabyte of VRAM at int4 MINIMUM, so you’d need like ~100k usd just to run inference on this thing at decent accuracy :(

easier, less hassle 🤷‍♀️

here for a good time, not and a long time 😎

found this quote on a competitive typing website, and for some reason it really resonated with me, thought i'd share it :)

If you could introduce a few obscure/minor laws to your country, which ones would you choose that would make the most positive or interesting impact?
i'd probably pick - cartoon tv series can't have more than 3 seasons - avocados should have most subsidies of any food - electron apps are now illegal - normal tv series can't have more than 5 seasons - protruding doorsteps are now illegal

hey guys, so i have this slave-run plantation, and i'm extremely concerned about climate change, so here's a 200 page meta analysis to try to figure out whether using slaves is environmentally friendly 🤗

Do you think there’s a viable solution to Wirth’s law?
from wikipedia: > Wirth's law is an adage on computer performance which states that software is getting slower more rapidly than hardware is becoming faster hardware doesn't degrade, yet a lot of devices, that felt very snappy in the beginning, that are merely 5 years old feel outdated and slow, because if a trillion dollar corporation can't be bothered to write a native application, and graces us with a control bar widget that's an entire chromium browser, whose only purpose is to push two buttons, then very few others will be on mobile, because developers are practically forced to write an app for absolutely everything, and there are easy to use tools available that will take your js and compile it into native components (like reactnative and nativescript), otherwise your app will be crippled, it is less pronounced on mobile in my opinion on desktop, because you can write applications however you want, every bloody thing is in electron: chat apps, text editors, IDEs and even terminals and browsers (lol), it's a complete disaster in my opinion, even a person like me, who wages holy war against electron apps, is forced to use a couple electron applications (looking angrily at you discord and zoom 😡) the problem is that most people start with (and never go on from) javascript as their first (and final language), which is an interpreted language, made to be run in a browser, that was designed in like two weeks, and the expectations are sky-high (apps that utilize native components across five operating systems and two processor architectures), and the unfortunate result of these requirements is electron there are some emerging solutions like extremely cross-platform flutter (but it's not js) and there are now native macOS and windows targets for react native, but it's rarely used it seems like unless there will emerge some framework, that would magically sip out the project from the developer's mind in js and transform it into native apps for ios, android, linux, macOS and windows, with zero modifications required from the developer, we have little hope, and such a framework would not only be a silly project, but also an effort of astronomical proportions so we're stuck with either iron grip control of corporations over mobile platforms that force everyone to write an app for everything, or with the freedom of the desktop, but we end up running 15 instances of chromium, not to mention the fragility of the web standards nowadays what do you think?

/c/privacy is looking for moderators
greetings everyone, there's already >3.5k members here, not all of them are active obviously, but there are still a lot of posts on this sub, and even more comments, i can't really meticulously go through each and every one of them if you are somewhat active in this community, and have been on lemmy (or one of the other instances) for a few months, and would like to dedicate some time to moderating this community, please pm me :)
