Re: MacBook Pro doing fine
Try Open Core patcher, my 2010 iMac is running Ventura and I'd imagine your machine would run it better. Just image the drive so you can go back if it doesn't pan out. Definitely worth a try.

More nonsense from people who actually thing Ukraine (without direct US/NATO intervention) could ever defeat Russia!
Your comment reminds me of a scene in Layer Cake where Daniel Craig's character is driving a hard bargain on a drug deal.
Duke: You wouldn't be so ****ing flashy if you didn't have him standing behind you would you?
Gene: Yeah, but he does though don't he.
I think this could start to sound the death knell for Red Hat. Its previous selling point was support and stability allowing software vendors the ability to have a one-stop "works on (Red Hat) Linux" option.
Debian has stability and both support and stability are offered by Suse, Ubuntu, and potentially Oracle to varying extents. Containerisation, SAAS etc means that Red Hat's opportunity space is shrinking (likely prompting this nonsense) and if one of those other distros can seize the day it will thus have fully enshittified itself with this move and provided a case study for future reference.
It's Oracle's IP, and they have a right to monetize it the way they see fit, and every customer who uses it has an obligation to be in compliance. No one is questioning that, but if I were receiving that email, I'd probably make a phone call back to Oracle and have a conversation with them and ask them questions without giving much information away.
and thought "I'd just tell them to go get fucked"
The funnier thing is that, although they could enforce the inability to use the app on UK iPhones by forcing Apple to not allow UK phones to install it, the EU is busy working on Apple allowing alternative app stores of which overseas ones not affected by this would be perfectly fine.
I wish them the best of luck trying to squeeze the Germans for extra money. If they said they'd give 6.8 large then that's what you're getting. If costs have risen because you're delaying then they'll view that as your inefficiency and tough shit. There's clearly other players they can subsidise, TSMC seems like a reasonable horse to back.
Does anyone know whether the registry tweaks will prevent this updating? Family member's laptop using some version of Windows 10 kept prompting about Windows 11 upgrade so, after searching, I found a registry tweak that locks the installation on a certain version. I was wondering whether this still holds true? Likelihood is I need to update to the latest 10 version to get security patches and lock it on that if possible. Using Windows 10 Professional (I think).
FLOSS is everywhere those days, as is free stuff, and regular consumers are in no way able to determine if there are risks, or what they could be.
I think that is where you draw the line between bad luck with best endeavours undertaken and the couldn't care less end of the spectrum. Even if I sell a software library that I have thoroughly tested but happens to contain some bizarre edge case that causes someone using it in ways I may have not even perceived to really f*ck up then I don't think I should be held liable. After all I have done as much as could reasonably be expected. If, on the other hand, I just wrote it, sold it, and didn't give a sh*t whether it was fit for purpose then that's a different story.
Everything is "may", "could" or "might" with not one explanation as to why the EU would fuck themselves over by doing such a thing.
This is not scaremongering. You should not concern yourself so much with what they intend to do with the law (the road to hell is paved with good intentions) but what someone in future could do under the law as written. That is why every poorly written law should be nuked from orbit, because of what a malicious actor could do with it in future. It is also why Governments generally write shitty laws - they convince you of their honourable intentions but write the to give leeway to act like c*nts in future.
In that case I would guess that, whilst the actions here are of some value, they will not go to solving the repairability of the hardware as the important applications are likely to remain closed source unless JD have integrated key parts into the firmware. If they have it will then depend on how and what as to where we get to collectively on the repair front.
Who's kidding themselves? He's just trying to get richer and appear more popular (not of late obviously). He got onboard with Tesla to make more money because there was a clear gap in the market - people were asking about electric cars but the incumbents had no interest in producing them when they could just keep knocking out variations on current models. There was the added bonus that the eco-fanboys that came along blew plenty of smoke up his arse, and what self-respecting narcissist can refuse that kind of rectal breeze. He couldn't give two shits about the environment, which is probably why he got the arse with the guy who kept tweeting where his personal jet was.
Afterwards you'll question why anybody has ever considered energy storage as a viable option because it's obviously bonkers.
No you won't. You'll come to the logical conclusion that, like so many other things in life, some parasite stands to make a fortune with their nose buried deep in the trough.
It doesn't need to scale well - most traders will commit these "special trades" with counterparties known to them personally not just any old spod in the market. When you're dealing with traders in certain markets that can deal in size and/or have a greater freedom to trade you're down to a limited set of individuals. Whilst markets seem large most players know each other - you'd be surprised.
The hard part is how do you know that "Spazz69" is really a trader at Deutsche and not a kid in a basement, or a Russian bot, or an SEC agent ?
Pretty sure you'd use signal and confirm the contact personally when setting up using "Verify Safety Number" i.e. when you're out on the piss with the counterparty (at the start of the session for obvious reasons). At this point you're secure. If it changes you're alerted and you'd cease comms until re-confirmed.
This bit from the article is a bit interesting
Not allowing wired connections to computers or peripherals when the device is locked
Locked, or locked down? If it is just when locked then I'm pretty sure that is irrelevant as border security in most locations has the legally enforceable right to request you unlock the device.
The good thing about T & C for software is you don't have to read it, especially if you don't intend using the software. Also worth noting that the majority of EULAs etc are unenforceable outside the US as they generally infringe on the odd statutory right here and there.
