An article from 2016 on how the Bitcoin blockchain was reaching its limit and being controlled by a tighter and tighter pool of speculators. Even more relevant with the rise and crash of tethercoins lately.

why is maths as a school subject nothing but difficult number tricks with no practical application? physics has equations that are both piss easy and give you answers you can use. fuck educational maths

Math is useful as fuck. I use it all the time. I used the Pythagorean theorem last week when I was building a structure to protect a well-pump from rain and need to know how long to cut the boards. I'm making a game where I regularly need to apply trigonometry when determining the relative rotation and movement of things. Our educational system sucks, and they suck at teaching math in a useful way, but that doesn't mean it isn't useful.




The classroom is used to induce anxiety and reverence for experts. Math class does not reliably produce math skills, but it does reliably produce ’math anxiety’, the belief that math is out of an ordinary person’s reach, and the belief that mathematicians are a class apart.

"Professor Yum-Tong Siu, whose class began with 50 students in 2003, said he actively tried to whittle down the class size. As The Harvard Independent reports, the class dropped down to 25 students, but Siu added: "I want to reduce it a bit more." The goal: 20. "We want a group of students with similar backgrounds so we can proceed at a pace that can suit them at the same time, so they don't feel bored or over their heads," said Siu."

Aren't those usually covered freshman linear algebra?

Remember to constantly randomize your MAC address.


Why? I want the government to catalogue my every opinion. Then they will know how they how wrong as I repeatedly and consistently destroy them with facts and logic.


Did you check the software I linked?

No. But maybe you should've led with that stuff in your OP.

So you're telling me I can catch the glowies snooping on me with this?


If they are dumb enough to always bring the same devices with them, yes. Or any non-federal-agent stalkers you might have too.

the watermark ruins it


It's an art project OP. Art under capitalism must naturally be faggy and pretentious.


Rebellious mainstream media! Bold design from corporations! Brave!
No thanks, I'm going to stick to neocities and post-prohibition tumblr wastelands, the ones who actually started this.


While it is absurd to act like aesthetics in themselves challenge the material world, we should not discount art and good design. Good design makes for good propaganda. Art, too, can be uplifting. Yes this article is cringe. However, design sensibilities from yotsuba boards are not morally superior.


whats a "yotsuba boards"


Yeah I still using it, in fact anyone still kinda using it cuz we can't just abandon our normies facade.

Also is it true that from Windows 10 until onwards (Windows 11), you don't need install any third-party or additional antivirus?

I still can't move on into Linux. Cuz it's not even my laptop, but my parents.

Just don't install suspicious files off the internet, duh.
Jokes aside, MalwareBytes is a good option, and make sure to scan any suspicious files through VirusTotal to check if they are safe.


just do a yearly manual scan with MBAM and Avira


Best advice is to run Windows in a Qubes OS virtual machine.


you should only use the built-in windows defender unless you like installing spyware that will make your computer run even slower


although obviously the better option is simply not using windows at all

Save on packaging material and the plastic thing stops the parts rattling around.

If only more retarded porkies could get cancer and die, that would be terrific.




Amtrak electrifies the profitable bits like the northeast Corridor but most of the existing network is owned by freight companies and lo and behold, they don't want to invest the money. The government would have to force them and pay for it to boot


I wonder if the no windows is supposed to be a diss to Bill Gates?


Then you'd be left with the retarded capitalist dependents.

Is it wrong to miss technology nerds of old? Were they just as bad but for different reasons or actually better?

>The beauty of free software is that you can be a free software activist and have your own political opinions on the side.
If you can be a free software activist and hold your own political opinions on the side; what good is your activism? It's like you're admitting to your own impotence; it's really bizarre.


People with boring and impotent politics are so quick to call others "ultras" and "purists".
Funnily enough Stallman is considered an "extremist" by many, especially for his lifestyle of complete rejection of anything proprietary.

Nerds of old were not all Free Software types. The original PC nerds were closer to those messing with Arduino now where micros was an advanced electronics project. By the time you get to Refund Day in 1999, the average user was far more resistant to change even among those in IT and development and you get to the point there were "nerds" that only knew Widows and were scared of Unix and Linux.
