Reminder that the “upside-down” from Stranger Things is literally real in a completely non-metaphoric way. Neoliberal central planning is gathering data on you to create a blurry mirror-image of you that they can use to predict your interests and tastes. You know how everyone has a story about how they were talking about something one day only to see ads about it later? The typical explanation is that your microphone picks up on things you say and recommends things based on the conversation, but this is wrong. There is simply a mirror-image of you that heuristically knows your dreams and desires before you even realize them or know they exist. A blurry version of you exists in a parallel universe, snitching on you and plotting on you for a hive mind of aliens.

You WILL use Pipewire
You WILL use Wayland
You WILL use systemD
You WILL install everything from Flatpak
You WILL use GTK
You WILL NOT have thumbnails in the filepicker
You WILL use btrfs
You WILL accept the code of conduct
And you WILL be happy

>There are legit gripes to have with SystemD
Do you know how horrible it feels to crash init by making a syntax error in a power management option?

Who even needs to browse their filesystem?
If you cannot remember your directory structure, you should do a serious reorganization or cd moar.
When I extract an archive or download a torrent, I always write a script to sanitize the names (i.e. alphanumerics separated by underscores).


systemd has no quality control and is overextended, but a rewrite with the fat cut off might be very good


What is there in SystemD, that makes it redeemable?
There is no need to go back to SysVInit, now that we have minimal init systems like s6, runit and sinit.


there are good projects out there
forget the birds eye view, and see the diverse ecosystem right in front of you. Pick what you like, and dont use the stuff you dont like. More normies are using linux than ever. This is good and bad. But as long as there's still a spectrum from more user friendly but shittier, to less user friendly (not necessarily but from windows user perspective) and more free, then it's fine. If the windows-impersonater side is getting bigger, just move people who use this stuff to better projects. Shoutout to Void, for using runit and being all around super minimalist and easy to use and great.


I wish I understood what youre all talking about :(

< Babel is used by millions, so why are we running out of money?
> This doesn’t surprise me. The purpose of the web software industry is to extract value out of Open-Source Software (OSS). Everything is built under the misconception that OSS is abundant, replaceable, and free.
> People don’t appreciate just how much web dev is about extracting value from OSS, both on individual and corporate levels.
> [..]
> Web development? Everything is built or run directly on OSS.
> Almost everything we do in web development exists as a thin layer over open-source software.
> Servers, build tools, databases, ORMs, auth, client-side JS, web browser: we are all building on a vast ocean of OSS labour without paying back a fraction of the value we generate. It isn’t just big, direct dependencies like Babel that are suffering. The stuff your stuff is using—the infrastructure code everything needs—is surviving on sheer inertia as well.
> That’s value extraction. Strip-mining if you want to hammer home the unsustainability. Looting if you want to emphasise the moral dimension.
Is open-source close to collapse?


>corporations… but "open" source"!


Yeah, MIT licensed projects are basically working for Apple but for free

Why do schizos think the internet is going to ever be shut down intentionally
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



i just looked up the statistic with the numbers, i don't know why they cut it, what >>8503 said sounds plausible.


It's not schizo at all.
* BGP vulns and IP take overs
* power grid
* supply chain attacks
* DRM :)
A state backed multi stage attack could seriously harm infrastructures and i would bet money that such an operation has already been outlined or is ready to go.


Schizos don't understand technology. The amount of schizos who have a brain hemorrhage when they see contrails in the sky and spaz out about "chemtrails" is a testament to that. Of course, many wrong and incorrect statements have sometimes a kernel of truth. While it is not the case that the entire internet cannot be shut down, government have compelled ISPs in their own countries to shut off internet access. This happened in Egypt, for example, way back in the Arab Spring. Governments more often than this, however, compel ISPs to block sites instead, and they accomplish this in a way that would usually require a VPN to circumvent. Pakistan, Turkey, and China are notorious for this.

Forgot to mention that there was a real-life test conducted by the military where they basically crop dusted some people. It is highly impractical. It would certainly be implausible that passenger airliners would be doing it, as the schizo chemtrail dipshits think, because where the hell would you hide the chemical tanks? Pilots and crew would have to be in on it because they have to account for weight on the plane. Many of these commercial planes have over 100 people servicing them. That is simply too many people to keep quiet.

how do you make a “Cybernetic culture research unit” that doesn’t even know how to use SSL?
what’s with this phenomena of lit majors larping as tech bros?

Fisher goes too far in some regards, but his critique is great anyways.


>None of those things are my problem. If people don't want to see my site with random trash inserted into it, they can choose not to access it through broken and/or compromised networks.
They can't choose and they are broken and compromised.
> But that's not really the point here: this is all just handwaving away the earlier whining about how governments and ISPs are molesting HTTP traffic. If your government is actively hostile to your communications, overthrow it. If you think J. Random User is going to give a single shit (or even notice) when the telco provider ships a phone update that adds trust to MITM certs, you're completely delusional.
<le just overthrow your government


>SSL is reformism!!!!!!!!!! take over the State instead
I admire his attitude.


> consoomerist larpers
they’re accelerationists, you think they’re going to worship artwork made through baroque primitive means? go to the Frankfurt School if you want whining about “muh consoomerism”

is it better than briar?


wait what happened?


What are you suspicious about? The concept you just laid out sounds highly solid to me. Paying people to host a node sounds like a wonderful idea in terms of keeping a network uncompromised?


>This network is built around some cryptocoin

ugh no thanks


Remember when Marlinspike got his panties in a bunch over someone making a version of signal that doesn't need google?

OP back again, thanks >>8880 for the bindings, ive been able to speed up my scripting as well as have an overall better quality of life.

this should be a banner.


Made the banner, >>>/leftypol/294250 (with a extra shebang line)cockshottCockshott


this is the correct take

>Hear how you shouldn't let your phone charge get too low
>Make sure battery never goes below 50% and charge till 90
<End up with swelling battery

And I'm still going to end up buying a 6000 mAh phone again

No don't water the lithium, that reaction will produce hydrogen gas. A damaged battery might ignite it in your face. Use a grabbing tool to put a damaged lithium battery in a fire resistant container like a ceramic flower pod and put it outside until it has finished burning out. You can put sand on it.


rest in peace me

i can't buy a new phone until lockdown ends and i got no sand

it hasn't swollen up fully but i'm noticing the outer body plastic shell of the phone come out a little





You're always supposed to fully cycle a battery at least a few times a month who the fuck told you to never let it go below 50%?????


Hammer a nail into it
