Are there any good "political" tech tubers? I'm tired of "non political" tech youtubers screeching every other video about politics and how essjaydoobs not letting them say n-word is gonna destroy the world and that's just too "political".

is there anything in my house that i could use to stimulate a mechancial keyboard in the mean time?

 No.15110

It's not just the feel, because each key has its own switch you can easily (or less easily if they're soldered) replace it if it goes bad instead of having to replace the entire keyboard, although switches still tend to normally last quite long.

Not sure if it's possible. I had seen that some people replaced the controller in the Mini M since it has a little bit better than 2-key rollover, but the way it's wired it can support a bit more rollover. They replace the controller with another one which supports open hardware, which is something I may do if I end up really caring about changing it.

Membrane keyboards can have input issues as well, confusing which key you press if you go too fast or press multiple keys at once (which can make playing certain games for example literally impossible). A common test for this is to hold both Shift keys and type one of those all-letter sentences like "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" or "sphinx of black quartz judge my vow" or "pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs."

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."

I was looking at the PineTime and wondered if there were actual cool uses for a smartwatch but I couldn't come up with any. Does leftypol have a better imagination than me or are smartwatches simply not worth it?

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.

Get into the privacy community to talk to like minded people, digital privacy is a complicated technical problem that will have to be solved in many incremental steps. You are correct that there is a class struggle about information power too Workers should also strive to gain more knowledge about capitalists as well. Make a database about working conditions but also how production chains link up, to know how matter and energy flows through the system.

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.
