  1. I just started listening to Cyclobe and am currently scolding myself for not doing it sooner. Absolutely incredible music.
  2. 2020, the year that communist America finally happens Essential workers are making less money than the government is giving to the unemployed. Sounds good to me.
  3. https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html
  4. Would it be possible to have a Javascript free version of the site ? I've found that I'm not really coming here anymore since it's so inconvenient to use without Javascript.
  5. I agree with you that proprietary technology is horrible, but a socialist revolution doesn’t solve anything. It just puts the same unethical powers into the hands of different people. Nothing else is changed.
  6. Haven’t gotten the OS yet, will probably do it next week. Pd would probably be the way to go, but I’ve been more focused on playing physical instruments than computer music.
  7. I think it’s especially difficult when you see this happen to people you love, who you know are great people with great minds, who are being held captive by this irresistible addiction that preys on all of us. Computers are a wonderful invention that can immensely benefit our lives, but for some reason the technology is just being abused and imprisoning us instead. Hopefully we can get over this and figure out a way to implement the technology in a more responsible way. The current system of abuse seems too strong for that to be easy, though.
  8. Apparently there is a gaming keyboard that connects to the internet and sends keystroke data to Chinese servers. Also the game Abstractism that was sold on Steam installed code onto people’s computers that used their processors to mine bitcoin for the game devs. Social media apps are also a trap. Last night when I was with friends, I realized at one point that I was the only one in the room not looking at social networks on the smartphone, which was absolutely surreal. It’s strange seeing people’s physical presence dissolving as their mind is divided and sent into hyperspace.
  9. Actually I’m going Guix because Arch contains binary blobs in its kernel and I don’t trust that
  10. This web paged contains more information on the topic.
  11. All Ford vehicles manufactured since 2019 have a constant tracking disservice that sends your physical location, your weight, and probably other information to Ford servers. The Nissan Leaf and other electric cars do this as well. Almost all laptop computers made now have Intel Management Engine or the AMD equivalent, which is invisible to the computer OS (regardless of which OS you have installed) and can be remotely controlled by Intel to turn the machine on and off and to manipulate anything else that the CPU is doing. Easypass can be used to track your location as well. Ubuntu has a feature that collects information about your searches on the computer and sends it to Amazon for advertising.
  12. The worst thing I’ve ever tasted was Gymnopilus junonius
  13. If China were trying to create some horrible disease for some reason, they didn’t do a very good job. Spreading some of the plague that they sometimes find in the western provinces would have done a lot more damage than this coronavirus.
