-TechrightsBot-tr/ | Facebook Apologizes For "Primates" Label On Video Of Black Men : NPRSep 06 03:20
DaemonFCFacebook issued an apology on behalf of its artificial intelligence software that asked users watching a video featuring Black men if they wanted to see more "videos about primates." [...] However, in 2015, Google's image recognition software classified photos of Black people as "gorillas." Google apologized and removed the labels of gorilla, chimp, chimpanzee and monkey -- words that remained censored over two years later, Wired reported.Sep 06 03:21

techrights-newsThe good news? #freesw is winning (growing usage, more companies/govs/people defend on it). The bad news? Corporations are working busily and overtime to dilute or water down its freedom. Optimists' stance: we just need to persevere and fight back. Pessimists: it's too later. #github killed freedom. #microsoftSep 06 09:29
techrights-newsIn parallel to the fight for #freesw or #softwareFreedom we should also combat the #wwww oligarchies/oligopolies, either by working to replace parts of the WWW or decentralising the network; power consolidation is achieved not only by #ProprietarySoftware (today's WWW is #openwashing and DRM with patents on top)Sep 06 09:32
techrights-newsMany people and companies wrongly assume that "code available on Github" is "open source" or #freesw -- perhaps conveniently ignoring the simple fact that #github itself is #proprietarySoftware and it's controlled by the NSA and #microsoft -- which STILL actively fights against developers to herd them into proprietary traps!!

-TechrightsBot-tr/ | Police Scotland's bizarre survey on Gaelic language push asks the public their sexuality or if they have hay feverSep 06 18:06
DaemonFCThe US Census for 2020 didn't ask whether you were gay or bisexual or anything. It asked if you were married and whether your spouse was male or female.Sep 06 18:06
DaemonFCSo the only thing that they would be able to gather is what percentage of marriages or to people of the same gender.Sep 06 18:07
DaemonFCLike they had to ask for legal reasons because same-sex marriage is a legal option, but they really really don't want good statistics on what percentage of the public is gay.Sep 06 18:08
DaemonFCSo now another 10 years will go by where the federal government and conservatives and lawmakers can say it's a small band of perverts,Sep 06 18:08
DaemonFCIt's a different sort of person who gets married vs who doesn't, even now, regardless. It used to be that if someone wasn't married in their 30s it was "suspicious".Sep 06 18:09
DaemonFCMinceR,  Again that takes us back to conservatives and individualism.Sep 06 18:10
DaemonFCThey're as responsible for ruining the alleged social contract as anyone.Sep 06 18:10
DaemonFCOnce you start thinking "Having kids isn't good for me, so you guys have fun with that!" you start eschewing other "responsibilities and duties", and then they panic that few people get married.Sep 06 18:11

DaemonFCIt's not just LGBT that Christians are panicking about after foisting individualist propaganda on the public from the 1980s onward.Sep 06 18:14
DaemonFCIt's people who don't marry, don't have kids, and single parents.Sep 06 18:14
DaemonFCWhich are the result of the propaganda just as much as the fact that being gay and out of the closet is.Sep 06 18:14

DaemonFC"That's about $60 a week after tax.".Sep 06 18:18
DaemonFCI mean, the only reason to sign up for a lot of these entry level openings, and 9 hours a week counts as an opening in the "jobs report", is so you can go down and apply for medical and food stamps.Sep 06 18:21

DaemonFC"Let me make my position clear, that Lenovo is lying through their teeth just like they did with Superfish malware incident. They lied until they couldn't lie anymore. Linux should not have to support the RAID mode because the mode should be able to be changed to AHCI, which is fully compatible with Linux, by the user in about 20 seconds."Sep 06 19:43

DaemonFCWe were talking about how there are exceptions to every rule. Sep 06 20:09
DaemonFCShe married this man who had a huge amount of money sitting in his savings account and she passed the stack of unpaid bills over after they got married and he sent out checks and then had her cut up her cards and call to cancel them.Sep 06 20:10
DaemonFCThen her kids came in and started wanting a bunch of Apple garbage.Sep 06 20:10

DaemonFCNo more debt since then.Sep 06 20:13
DaemonFCschestowitz, I was talking to the guy at the T-Mobile store. He asked why I had overpaid to get an account credit. I said, "Well, two reasons. I like to make sure I don't need to worry about bills for a while and I was getting some extra credit card points before my Discover Card double points for your first year promo ends.".Sep 06 20:14
DaemonFCHe's like "That's not how you build credit though. They don't care if you have a credit on your phone account.".Sep 06 20:15
DaemonFCI said, "Actually, Discover does like when you run large transactions through your cards. Most people who get approved for higher limits were using what the company already gave them at least occasionally. They turn down people who don't. Higher limits do raise your credit scores.".Sep 06 20:15
DaemonFC"On the other hand, account reviews go over people who have a large limit and never use anything close to it, and you could see your limit cut.".Sep 06 20:16
DaemonFC"They don't tell you they're doing an account review. It's usually not even a person who does them. It's a computer program.".Sep 06 20:17

DaemonFCI figured out how to get it to tell me the raw numbers and for both 4G LTE and 5G signals. It connects to both, apparently.Sep 06 20:30
DaemonFCI found I get the best throughput by making sure the "secondary" signal, which is 5G, is the stronger of the two, so I placed the modem where it doesn't even have the option to connect to 4G, but the 5G signal is quite good.Sep 06 20:30

DaemonFCThen once you point it like that and use some tinfoil to make sure the 4G signal is unusable, it's really fast.Sep 06 20:31
DaemonFCI'm currently BitTorrenting at 6 MB/second up from like 1 when the 4G signal was coming through as well.Sep 06 20:31
DaemonFCSo it has some sort of dual antenna system in there and prefers the 4G signal if it's coming in stronger, even though it has less bandwidth.Sep 06 20:32
DaemonFCBut you can trick it up with some tinfoil to where it can't lock on with the 4G signal at all.Sep 06 20:32

techrights-newsI never even signed a contract with #eon / #eonnext as they just bought our supplier #npower and then 'stole' all the personal data, including bank details, from NPower. Now abusing NPower clients while gaslighting them. Avoid!Sep 06 23:44
