I wonder if the algorithm really is this scarily good that it can even detect the length of the skirt in videos?
No wonder it's so addictive for the average person. If the botnet is already this advanced I don't want to imagine how bad things are going to get in the near future.

>ok you want to watch videos of girls dancing
This is such a simplistic way to do it. It's actually kind of bad because if you re-watch the same clip it means you are going to spend more time on that piece of content that you could spend on other pieces of content. Realistically if you wanted to optimize for one metric based on watch time (which by itself is dubious) you'd want to go for something like watching most or all of the clip before moving on. There's also an extremely dangerous assumption built into this about metrics, some real anglo mentality. Just because the algorithm is noticing a pattern and deciding on something doesn't mean the algorithm is correct. It might be very reliable at determining something but that doesn't mean it's doing a good job of interpreting the data coming in. It only knows the metrics that the system feeds it. It doesn't know for example that this guy was so dissatisfied with his experience on tiktok that he raised the issue of the algorithm not doing what he wanted to a techie, who then smugly assured him that it's not a bug but a feature. That's the real scary thing there: not that the algorithm is actually smart, but that so many people will take it on faith that what the algorithm tells you is true.

No my expectation is that all gadgets are open because computers are supposed to be programmable. A locked down boot loader is a defect.

Currently, the best you can hope for when looking for a secure XMPP client is Pidgin and Gajim, which is not ideal. Aside from rampant security issues and lackluster development/maintenance, there is no integrated OTR and OMEMO support.
Historically, the reason for this disappointing selection has been due to the sabotage of porkies like at AOL or Microsoft who purposefully killed the project so their own software could hold a monopoly.

So, in the spirit of communism, I'd like to propose an autonomous community project for developing and maintaining a client:
- Multiplatform (Linux, Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android)
- Modern, default features for stuff like end-to-end encryption and media sharing, etc.
- Proper delegation of dev duties according to principle of mutual aid. Individuals contribute what they can and the group determines how it fits into the project and how the individual could be supported in their contribution
- Up to date with https://xmpp.org/extensions/
- In-built default OTR, and for groupchats, OMEMO. The client shouldn't generate keys for the user though

Pointless, confusing modularity on the user's end can instead be done for them by a smart, mutualistic development team that are themselves users that want a proper chat client.

Let the ruling classes tremble at a communistic secure chat client!

Anyone else having random constant crashes of Firefox and derivative browsers (like Tor)? Checking the logs there's always this line before it closes:
> firefox.real: xcb_io.c:269: poll_for_event: Assertion `!xcb_xlib_threads_sequence_lost' failed.
I haven't been able to find much when searching for this but it seems to be related to GTK? I'm on a rolling release distro and it happens independent of window manager.

I didn't understand the whole GPU prices meme all these years until now

I had a budget note.
I went over and looked at the price of a GPU I wanted to buy, and it's price now

FILTH, ABSOLUTE FILTH!

THE FUCKING AUDACITY, to think that their worthless tins of silicone are worth this much because of FUCKING VIDEO GAMES?

I don't even care about having the latest card for this video game bullshit

But the fact that I am subject to buy a shitty 2000's bum ass "gpu"or amd gpu's with shit ass drivers or even worse go dumpster driving of some consoomer's recycled gpus?
It disgusts me

if you want "basic" stuff,jut get a very good (a 7th for intel,you don't have to buy a 9th,and AMDs are pretty good) CPU with integrated graphics,it's better price wise at this moment.
Especially if it's just gaming,if you want to do 3D modeling,you have to buy the damn graphics card,I'm sorry.
