A faulty battery huh? Well shit, quick hurry up, let's ban everything that has batteries in them!
I've been using vivaldi for a while now and while it's decent, the memory it gobbles is ridiculous; I run Linux so ram usage has never been much of an issue, thus long ago this computer was built with 4G of ram, plenty for everything including gaming, and it's been enough up until this monstrosity came out. I don't know if there's a fix for the memory hogging insanity of blink-based browsers, up until I started running vivaldi I've never felt I even needed more ram, and now I have to shut it (vivaldi) down whenever I start rocket league, to avoid the inevitable churning of swap that would otherwise ensue. Anyone have some spare dd3 sticks? :(
Way too different, your post is insane, and I really can't be bothered to point out the flaws anymore.
I reject everything about your post. I have been sitting here trying to write out a reply but your post is so insane that nothing sounds like a good response.
So let me state again for the record: Blizzard can suck a bag of dicks. Aww, according to you now the poow widdle devewopers are now feeling butthurt and will therefore not support Linux. I reject your round-about logic and I reject this fallacy. If Blizzard were to release a game for Linux tomorrow, you'd have a surge of Linux users buying it. But they will not, and not because they feel like no Linux user wants to be their friend, they just don't fucking care about Linux users... unless they try to play a Blizzard game using wine, then they really really care, and they will ban your ass, and they will continue to ban Linux users using Wine. So yeah. Fuck em.
If and when developers want to release their games for Linux, I and many others like me are very welcoming and we support them by purchasing their titles, we report bugs and help out wherever we can. We love them for it. And we play the hell out of their games.
Meanwhile, you sit in a corner on the interweb victimizing yourself and ask that I abandon running Linux on my desktop because poor you, you have no choice but to run win. Well sir, I have run Linux exclusively since 2k1, and I have gamed and gamed and gamed, and I will continue to game with ever more games becoming available. It is a great time for Linux gaming, and like most significant times in history, it is happening whether you want it to or not.
>> they're not the ones I WANT to play
I'm sure they're not. For me, I am thoroughly enjoying a quite awesome and extensive range of titles from indie to AAA in my Linux gaming.
But Overwatch? I don't get why you'd mention that. I'm going to assume that you know Blizzard hates Linux and will never make a game for it. Blizzard is not even in the running. The only game they have a Linux client for is world of warcraft, and while that's been available (internally) for over 10 years now, it's not something they'll ever let the public touch. So fuck em. Plenty of other fish in the vast sea =)
Meanwhile, I bet I have and play more games than you ever will in your lifetime dude! ;) But you do you man! Carry that torch of hatred in your little corner, it will keep you warm as you sit down to complain about how others can't enjoy all the games you potentially could, yet never will, because of raging on the internet ;)
>>A pale imitation of its progenitor.
And yet, more games than anyone could play in a lifetime. Yes, there are more games for windows, but you will never ever play them all.
>> the quiet starts my mind ticking over
Search youtube for "star trek sleeping", or if star trek isn't your thing there are plenty of other types available too, nature noises and what not. Or just put on some music. I've been sleeping with music, though mine is heavy/black metal, for nigh on 25 years now (:
Xournal has always come to the rescue when I needed to edit PDFs.
It might just be a little too low-tech, castAR should be out soon and seems a bit more capable (search youtube for castAR for examples).
"All of us at IBM share your gratitude and devotion to the men, women and families who serve our country."
I sincerely hope not, considering he has had nothing but scorn and derisiveness for them, like mccain, and khan. Fuck you IBM guy, for this fucking bullshit statement.
It's hard to believe an ibm deathstar is still functional after all this time
Kodi and Mythtv aren't really equivalents though, myth was always focussed on capturing tv, providing recording functions and tv-guide and programming, what you've come to expect from tivos and dvrs/pvrs etc, whereas kodi is more about playing back an existing library of local/remote files. There is overlap between the two, but at least in my opinion they are each individually defined, and both have their place in different use-cases.
>> I'd be worried if I were Slack.
No need. Two words; Comic Chat.
That is all.
Huh? So there's only expensive electronics or wrappers, nothing in between? Did I hit a nerve?
>> (Just bad luck, she has dropped it loads of times without damage).
If she's 3, and has dropped it loads of times, then it's not really bad luck is it, it's just a bad choice on your part.
That sounds a bit harsh. I've been using a keyboard-driven tiling window manager since mid 00's (ion) and I could never go back to handling window management manually anymore. But I can see why some people wouldn't take to it, tiling/floating is definitely subjective - but why don't they just add a setting to set the root window into floating if that's your choice? Or add another workspace which has the floating property, while you keep the tiling property on the root? There are occasional programs that just don't want to co-operate in a tiled/fullscreen environment, and a floating workspace is perfect for that.
It seems like a missed opportunity to impose your will for either one or the other, but then again, microsoft's imposing will is why I left that world behind years ago ;)
You will all succumb in the end. It is inevitable.
You're an idiot.
EDIT: Guh, I just responded to the original poster without realizing there's like a biblical length of replies after it, oh well. Original poster is still an idiot.
>> them as the bad guys.
But see that's the beauty of their statement, they know you'd be suspicious of anything they champion, so in order to try to get people not to use sha512, they'll say do use it. This inception goes many levels deep. I bought tinfoil cheap in bulk, everyone's welcome to a hat!
World, upside down? When is what? Why the who?
WHICH FOR WHERE? *explodes*
>> Has anyone looked at Brosix?
I asked the same question in a previous skype article, I got no answers but 10 downvotes (for some reason, go figure). I haven't tried brosix myself yet but I'd be eager to hear your opinion of it. Wanting a native linux client rather than a webbified version it seems there are two main options, brosix and discord. Opinions/experiences on either are very welcome, please share all the good/bad if you have any.
You can say irrespective or regardless, but you can't say irregardless.
Sad to say but your traffic is most likely sniffed by someone somewhere, whether you use a tunnel or not, so don't let that argument stand in your way.
Never. You're just wearing it wrong.
There's one called Brosix, but I haven't tried it myself, anyone have experience with it?
>>The people who make these remakes claim
>>that they have a love for the subject matter
Actually, Abrams never liked Star Trek, he didn't like it at all until he started working on his own movie of it, then he 'fell in love with it', so the only trek he had a love for, was his own.
“I stopped listening to you when you said you didn’t like ‘Star Trek.’ I know what happened because your mouth kept moving after that, so I’m assuming you apologized,”
You can't say I'm wrong when the evidence isn't in yet. Time will tell, but history is on my side.
I'm gonna call bs on that; throughout its existence ms has been pulling dick moves. It's what they do. And every time you'll take it, and still get on the bandwagon, because it's what you do. Perhaps not 'you' in an individual sense, but certainly in a general one.
It won't be any different this time.
Good for you dude. The moment of anger is key, that's what separates the win power users who go back, from the ones who stay. Your next place to visit should be www.gamingonlinux.com (:
Same. Smoked 14.5 years, tried to quit in that time but was a complete wreck, and still went back to smoking. Heard of ecigs, researched it for a week, ordered my kit, and have been smoke free since I got my kit in the mail, 29 dec 2010. Don't really vape anymore either, but it's fun to take out on occasion.
Hi, going to assume you're talking about bash_completion and not just auto-completing filenames, the more advanced bash_completion is made available by the package bash-completion, it sounds to me like that package just isn't installed, so first step is to check that. If it is installed and you still don't have it enabled then we're unfortunately going to have to suggest you check your bash resources; check your ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc file if they contain:
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ] && ! shopt -oq posix; then
That's the default one anyway, I mean you don't really need that whole if statement, you just need to source /etc/bash_completion really. Anyway, to get bash_completion going it's one of those two steps (or possibly both) that are giving you crap, and that's how you fix it.
If I have misunderstood you and your problem isn't really with bash_completion, but rather just basic tab-hitting to auto-complete filenames and hitting tab itself has stopped working, may I suggest that you might have befucked your ~/.inputrc - this file needs to be copied from /etc into your home and then modifications added afterwards, if you just add a single modifier, _all_ other bindings will stop working, the file needs to be complete.
If this still isn't the case I'd be rather interested in hearing more about your issue, sounds like an interesting puzzle (:
Currency schmurrency, can't we get to Post-Scarcity already?
>> Why bother?
Because it makes certain things easier. Not all things. Certain things.
>> (and what random mix of toxins is in the vapour?)
What the fuck is a toxin? Please define toxin. There are no random elements in vapour, it's a base of either vegetable glycerin or propylene glycol, or a mix of those two, plus nicotine for those who use that, and some flavouring.
Toxin. How fucking lazy is that word.
>> shouldn't non-vapers have the right not to have to passively
>> inhale the nicotine and other ingredients of the addicted?
Shouldn't pedestrians have the right not to passively inhale the car fumes and other ingredients of the addicted (to driving)? I don't think the world works like that dude, if you are offended by something in public, you have to move away from it, you can't expect it to be moved away from you.
And anyway, is nicotine where you draw the limit? Because the other 'ingredients' as you so quaintly put it, is nothing more than vegetable glycerine (safe), propylene glycol (safe), plus maybe some fragrance (and if you are upset by fragrance, maybe you should just plug your nose instead, the world is full of them, including obnoxious people who bathe in axe).

Don't you? What do you think a burp is? How can you be so oblivious.
It might never end, but hopefully time will marginalize it.
The idea of "We exist without skin colour" regardless which words express it are used a lot but mostly by white people, well meaning by all accounts. The problem is that for a loooong time societies have been built on racism, and while societies try to move away from the overt racism (like slavery, apartheid), the racism is still systemic and deeply rooted in all institutions, and in all likelihood will never vanish entirely.
So the phrase, "We exist without skin colour", for a well meaning white person is self evident, it's obvious and true. Absolute truth.
But for a person of colour, that same expression might be met with "Then why does the police keep pulling me over? Why do people keep giving me suspicious looks in the supermarket? Why did you give the job to this incompetent tosser when I was more than qualified and better suited?"
So if we exist without skin colour, why does skin colour still make people judge others especially negatively? It's clearly a more complicated question, but it's sad that it has to be, you can't control what other people do (or at least you shouldn't try - bad things happen then), you can only control yourself, so that is where change must first take place.
>>This was the day I decided ...
>> Will it be worth the effort?
I'm not sure, it depends on how thoroughly pissed off you are; It's actually a lot harder for a windows poweruser to switch to Linux than it is for a complete newbie to learn because there's just so much ingrained expectance (of how things work). But fury with a bit of stubborness is exactly what will get you there.
I don't know what process will be best for you, but I can tell you what I did on my day of fury - I decided that I'd either learn to use Linux (with no prior knowledge) or stop using computers altogether. I saved what little was of actual import, text files and pics mostly then blew away all windows and went into the deep end, I very specifically did not want any remaining windows anywhere, just in case I would feel something was too hard and come crawling back. I'd push through my ignorance and learn.
I installed Debian, and probably fucked up the first install, so I installed it again. I did not go for a full install but rather a barebones install and then manually picked and chose what I wanted, I decided that for the first week I wouldn't even bother with X, I'd learn what I could about the console, and learn how to achieve in console what I'd normally expected to need a gui for.
I learned about the programs in /bin and /usr/bin, and some of the sbin ones, I learned how to use man on the commands, or just add --help after each command, and I just built my knowledge from the ground up.
After a week I installed X, I didn't understand X so I didn't want the packaging system to do it for me (to be fair, at that point it felt like the package system was far more frail especially when dealing with X), so I downloaded separate files from XFree86 and ran the shellscript to set it up. I don't advise using this method today for X ;)
Anyway, turns out that Linux is pretty easy to learn, you need to shed some preconceived notions and stop expecting things to work like in win, the struggle lies in learning "how to learn".
But once you have that down, how to search duck/google, once you get the basics under you, it becomes pretty straight forward, everything functions in a very logical manner so you can predict events and identify problems in any part of the chain on your own, and there are always many ways to solve a problem and only your own imagination is what stops you.
Finally, for me it's been worth it, I have a lot of fun running Linux and I feel like I'm far more creative than I ever was when I ran win, it levelled up my skills in critical and logical thinking. The only problem I have with Linux now, is that there are more games on steam that I want to play, than I have time to play.
I'm pretty sure that the only big deal is the one he's making about it. Fucking douchebags the lot of them, just fucking own it, instead of these ridiculous mental gymnastics which in this case he went above and beyond with.
Fuck CBS rectally with a thorny corncob for their bullshit with Axanar and Federation Rising.
>>Somehow it brings "the final solution" to my mind.
And the Hitler award goes to Hyperbolic AC! Congratulations!
That's some grade A trolling right there mr werdsmith.
Well let me rephrase for you - a person who sexually harasses another is predatory, it's traditionally been helped by the unwillingness of the victim to come forward out of fear of retribution, in this environment predators thrive, and yes traditionally this dynamic has men being the predator, by far. I thought my last post made that clear, most men are not people who harass women, but you don't get a cookie or a medal for being a decent human being, it's simply expected.
Well-behaving men behave well? Also, water wet. Are you talking about men in general, or men who harass in general? I was under the impression we were talking about the latter. If over there, the men who harass don't behave like predators, kudos, I guess? Now if you could only get them to stop harassing too...
>>Have you ever experienced being a man in a 99% female workplace?
No, I have however heard anecdotally about men who feel uncomfortable and like they're being treated as a piece of meat in such a situation. Certainly harassment can go both ways, the difference however in all those instances were that women generally do not behave like predators and are nowhere as aggressive in their pursuant harassment. Nevertheless let me be clear, harassment is not ok and everyone has the right to feel safe in their workplace, free of worrying about what to wear or how they look for fear of someone who wasn't raised to treat people decently.
That said... Have you known a lot of tech companies with a 99% female workforce? Thought not.
>>Personally I don't think I've ever encountered sexism or racism on a personal level at work.
Well see, here's one problem with that; you're not a woman.
Unless you are in their shoes (literally), you will never ever see or experience that offhand remark, the subtle but inappropriate touch, the leering, the sneering, the utter outrage from some men who yell obscenities at women who choose not to acknowledge them when 'all they did' was to tell them how pretty they were, as if the women exist merely to make some guy's boner happy.
It is really easy as a man to say you've never seen or experienced it, and that might be why it gets dismissed or ridiculed when brought up; most women who are harassed don't even speak about it, usually for fear of retribution, getting fired, being pushed out.
You having never seen or experienced it sadly means nothing, maybe it will mean something to you when it's your daughter or girlfriend whom it happens to.
This sounds really interesting, assuming you are who you say you are, if this doesn't get on the register proper then don't let it die out here, write up some stories and link them, I'm eager to hear more anyway.
>>Linux could do a lot worse than providing an interface which mimics
>>this. If you want converts, why try reinventing the interface..
Not that I speak for all Linux users, but no we don't _want_ converts, if you want to convert that's great but it should be on your terms, noone else really gives a shit what you run =)
But as a new user you demonstrate the ignorance (not said with malice) which comes with it, Linux is not a single entity that provides 'stuff', like user interfaces, they are provided usually by individuals or groups of individuals who share an interest and a general direction on how a user interface should function. That is why there are hundreds of different user interfaces available, because there are hundreds of people (and more!) that each have their own opinion on how a good user interface looks.
At the same time, "Why try reinventing the interface?", because that's what using Linux is all about, for a lot of people, it's a way to explore, and come up with new solutions. Or just be creative. Use your imagination.
You have gone completely batshit. The everyday man-hating feminazis? Seriously? Do you wear tinfoil-hats to protect yourself against their feminine man-controlling mind-rays too?
Clearly, this is your opinion. Now _that_ is fucking scary. You are a dinosaur and your viewpoint is fossilized.
The only people who fear giving women equal rights and representation, are the losers who despite after years of living with extreme privilege end up on the bottom, where they comfort themselves knowing that at least they can be superior to women. The future must be fucking TERRIFYING for you.
You sound positively terrified of women.
