The argument kind of makes sense if surveillance only is used to catch the bad guys - not that it’s right, but you could wrap your brain around it.
What’s really happening though, is that surveillance is used to hypnotize us all. To nudge us in all kinds of directions in a much more effective way than before - to brainwash us.
I haven’t read the article, but that sounds like a choice between plague and cholera :P
A retro console for the kids
Me too; they have a RetroPie with tons of roms.
They wish! I use RSS every day. Got tons of stuff in my fancy schmancy Reeder.
Considering where we are at, this post is borderline trolling :)
ZSH with Powerlevel9k
Nuclino. It’s okey.
I always try to go dark if it is possible. I’ve even switch apps because of it - for instance going from Slack to Mattermost. I almost nutted myself when macOS went dark mode and I even use Dark Reader in Firefox.
I do believe it’s better for my eyes going as dark as possible. If I by accident stumble upen some site or app filling the screen with white, it hurts. It burns. It makes my head hurt. It feels like I’m allergic to white almost :P
I will recommend Journey (https://2appstudio.com/journey/). I’ve tried several, but this is the one I ended up with.
I don’t use it any longer, because in an effort to declutter my desktop I tried to use it as a Todo app as well- which is it not. It all ended with me moving to Agenda which is great for notes and todos, but not so much for journaling.
REBOL was doomed from the start. You could try it out for free, but if you wanted to use it for anything serious like database connectivity or whatnot, you were required to purchase a license %]
I remember you could do some amazing one-liners though!
I guess the main reason he doesn’t recommend turning off Defender is that, for normal people, it’s not even possible :P
Python is dead
Update: Why the downvote? It’s quite obvious to me that Python is not a language you can trust going forward and there are plenty of good alternatives out there (Go, Swift, Nim, Elixir, etc). Why they have destroyed a perfectly nice language is beyond me.
Saying “X is dead” in the technology world is pretty much a no-op. It’s a statement devoid of any actual purpose other than trying to make a splash.
Want proof? Google “Java is dead” and then actually look at just HOW MUCH JAVA is being written every day, all the time, in enterprise environments.
I don’t claim that Python is dead because I don’t like it. The opposite is true, but why put a lot of time and effort into learning a language that is degrading and where the maintainers obviously don’t care about the users. I am looking for alternatives and I think a lot of people are. That’s why I believe it’s dead. Golang looks promising.
a language that is degrading
Have you looked at the new Python 3 stuff? Things have been getting awesome, especially with Python 3.5 and beyond.
I guess I haven’t really %]
I don’t think you thought this through. How on earth are you going to survive without Counter-Strike?
