Dutch government requires you to use Android or iOS to use digital infrastructure

Dutch digital identity verification system DigiD has announced the phasing out SMS as second factor. That way they require citizens to install a smartphone app in order to use digital services from the government, municipalities, the health sector and others. These applications only work on iOS and…

Interesting episode about one of the Jan 6 rioters…

The system doesn’t work, these people need to be tried in court. But they’re rich unfortunately…

I don’t think that’s possible, but you could just commit to using one instance?

Great question, keeping up with what is political correct is very difficult and it’s easy to get cancelled.

It’s not really though. As long as you’re open to understand a good argument against a habit that you learned earlier and you’re a respectful person, you shouldn’t have a problem.

Hey these apps are still new! I have always been the using lemmy through the mobile browser, and it works flawlessly!

That’s weird as hell I’d like to see a follow up on that. What could be the reason?

It’s a very old machine, often used by enthusiasts, the chances are high that it has gotten upgrades before, no?

The computer might already have an SSD. Do you know how to check?

First make sure that you got compatible memory! Also you could try to find used modules, they are available on craiglist and similar sites.

Learning always is a good idea.

You have two ram slots only. You could do 8 and 4gb but that’s not advised. Better use same amount and also same frequency etc. Did you check out the ifixit link?

I was wrong, it’s even easier than I thought. Here is a step-by-step manual if you like: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Lenovo+ThinkPad+X220+RAM+Replacement/71889

If you have a little bit of skill with a screw driver and basic electronics it’s a good idea. I think it fits two ram sticks, so you could buy two 8gb ones. Or you could buy a second 4gb one for very cheap and end up with 8gb, which is fine still anyways.

Wait what do you do with it on a raspberry pi?

I think it’s a good idea, but only if you already have users or potential users. Otherwise just make a sublemmy on one of the servers and use that.

for this very good effortpost I will award you 1 of my lemmy bucks! Proof will be edited, once the transaction is complete.
