Hey folks, I'm at my wits end. I've been screwing with proxmox for years now, but I'm at a tipping point. I've just used consumer SSDs in it to run my VMs off of - but I just realized after a dozen or so crashes over the last week that I think the SSDs are the culprit. (Really, _really_ terrible write speeds leading to kernel crashes I believe).
I've never gotten an enterprise SSD, if that's even what I need. Any recommendations? New? Used? Brands?
I'm noticing an influx of Reddit users today, maybe revolving around their weird bug they had today. I know this question pops up semi regularly, but for those just getting their foot in the door maybe we can help show them what else is out here on the Fediverse to help them get started.
I'll kick us off, to any newcomers, I help run the following communities, and we'd welcome you to any of them. *(Shameless self promotion I know, but I hope more people join in sharing theirs as well)*

Or by her participating that she is knowingly involving herself in a scam. Which, yeah, it's just books - but it's pretty obviously a pyramid.
No shame if you don't see how it's a scam, the cozy blanket and glass of wine are meant to throw you, and they chose 36 because it's a confusing enough number where you don't think too much about how it grows.
She gives one book to her upline. She then sends out post to 36 more people to give her 36 books. Each one of them then needs to find 36 people each, which is now 1296 people in that level if they each want 36 books. Thus the exponential pyramid. Of course there is zero way each of them will find that many people, let alone the levels below that. It's a scam that benefits those higher up, and the ones lower will likely not receive anything.
Of course she sees nothing wrong with that. She said "Sometimes I get books, sometimes I don't, that's just part of the game". Which... it's not a game when it's real money being passed around.
On top of that, whenever we see a pyramid scheme we should be stamping it out - _hard_. Folks, please spot the signs and point them out. Don't be afraid to comment on posts calling them out as scams.
Edit: To be clear the idea of a growing book exchange isn't a bad one, as explained in the comments though the way to make it not a scam is to make it 1:1. You either send a book and receive a book, or if they like the 36 number, you change it to "I'll send a book to whoever sends me a book!". Then it's a true book exchange.
Hey Folks, I've made a couple kiosks in the past around the house, but I'm hoping there's an easier solution out there. Previously I'd install raspbian or something on to a pi and then remote into a full-screened chromium to set it up.
Does anyone know of a good OS that theoretically boot directly to a URL with minimal effort? Like I said I can do it manually but I'd like something pre-built for the task.
Bonus points if it would have a web-configurator, I may want to change the URL it's using occasionally and it'd be nice not to have to remote in directly.
Seriously launched the app (by accident today) and what is this? They're trying to play the victim from the big bad ad blockers saying all they're doing is trying to show an ad at the beginning of video, and then I see all of this crap.
This was after a non-skippable ad at the beginning followed by a totally real "survey" that it wanted me to fill out, one interruption so far in the content, and now **three** ads on the screen. That's **45%** of the screen dedicated to ads. Freaking ridiculous. "But please turn off your ad blocker".
I'm thinking of spinning up some streaming for a couple of games in the near future, (I always do massive 400+ hour factories in Satisfactory) and was wondering if there's a place or software to stream on that's not Amazon, Google, Microsoft, or Meta? I'm not looking for revenue or massive followers, this would just be for fun and I'd post a link in a couple communities if they wanted to watch. I'm happy to host myself too.
Any ideas? Theoretically activitypub so I could link it on mastodon and here?
Learned the term recently and really enjoy it, subscription fatigue is the feeling we all have had now where we are just over how everything is subscription based.
Which one was the last straw or most annoying/frustrating to you?
Hi all, looking for my next major project/frustration. I've been forcing myself to learn the new AI tools and I think I'm ready for the next step. I'm familiar with image generation and I dabbled in a bit of chat bot stuff, but I think I'm ready.
I've read a few blogs but I want to find something that could work with my existing setup. My dream setup would be:
A voice assistant that runs locally, preferably dockerized, backup linux, and final option would be Windows, that can run a decent model and preferably let me train a custom voice for it.
I currently have:
* Home Assistant set up already, I've seen the OpenAI integrations but would like to migrate off of those
* Google Minis laying around, I'm willing to sacrifice one of them if it means I can use my own stuff
* Spare 1650GTX GPU, I know not the best but hopefully enough to get it off the ground before deciding to go in on a larger GPU that would be dedicated to this
Needs/wants/nice to haves would be:
* Basic chat functionality, what's the weather like
* Play music from my plex or jellyfin server
* HA integrations so I could say stuff like "Turn off the lights"
Sorry for dumping all of this, like I said I've seen blog posts around, some are doing parts of this, but I wonder if anyone has done something like this. I'm sure people have tried. Guides, jumping off points, even githubs/projects you know of would be helpful.
_I know XKCD isn't truly a meme, but the popular one was a ripoff of this XKCD comic_
_and thanks to all of the shitposters posting these old memes with me, I'm having a ton of fun even if others don't like people having fun_
_yeah but if you join, and your friends join, and they're friends, you know what nevermind_
[Edit] holy shit people I get it, people like it small, take it easy it's just a meme, don't need to keep commenting and DMing
