      p7zip [fork] has worked fine since forever (and comes with the modern codecs like zstd that you need to manually install on windoze)

      Shout out to Modern7z though

          Oops. I realised the issue. My bad. Will fix it soon.

          P.S. Fixed it with https://github.com/mr-karan/doggo/commit/8d1b6ad9fa205675b86818f0affccd28d2256686.

                      Please don’t abuse the good people seeding and keeping the swarm alive.

                      1. 4

                        cliflix might actually push in the opposite direction in some cases. With others torrent clients one may want to stop seeding as soon as the torrent finishes downloading, or one may limit the bandwidth dedicated to seeing. With cliflix you don’t want to stop seeding as soon as the torrent has been downloaded completely if you’re still watching it because the streaming might stop. Also I’m not sure webtorrent-cli, that cliflix uses under the hood, has an option for limiting the bandwidth at all.

                        1. 2

                          My thoughts exactly.

                          This kind of UI are clearly inciting to completely leech and are heavily deteriorating and centralizing the network. A simple way to mitigate this for regular seeders is to block webtorrents altogether.

                          On the other hand, I am happy everytime I see people working on the BitTorrent ecosystem :)

                          @fabiospampinato I am a bit puzzled by this: why did you chose to fork webtorrent-cli in another process over using the web-torrent library?

                            I actually think cliflix might achieve the opposite effect in some cases. Read my reply to @znedw about this.

                            Being cliflix a cli app using the cli version of webtorrent seemed the best option since it has a nice interface and we can pass options to it directly from the terminal.

                          I use and love linux, and have read many things about Linus being abusive and what not. I am on the spectrum and wasn’t diagnosed til my 40s. Looking back on my earlier adult years, I was described as abrasive, obnoxious, and many others.

                          I tend not to suffer fools lightly, but somehow, on my own have learned better self-editing skills. Hopefully Linus will figure this out, because it truly will benefit everyone in the community.

                            Any tips? I’m probably in a similar position but am trying to be less of an asshole.

                            1. 22

                              Wow. I wish I had a great answer for this. Feeling things, ANYTHING, has always been hard for me, but one thing that has always made me feel things is art. Music and cinema are usually where I go. When something in either of those arenas makes me feel something, I reflect on it and think. I think about that feeling and how it might apply to me and others, and I dunno, maybe it’s re-written my brain wiring a little bit.

                              I guess one basic thing I also do is just not respond sometimes. I give it time, and think about it. When I’m on the internet now, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started a reply, and then just bailed on it, and never sent it. Or I’ve started a reply, and copied it into my clipboard so I could spend a little time thinking if I really wanted to send it. It’s in the clipboard if I need it.

                              Whereas 30+ years ago, if I was on my BBS or another, I would just furiously write a reply or a message and just hit save, without thinking. So maybe some of this has come with age, also. Supposedly we get wiser as we get older.

                              1. 14

                                I am (was?) also in a similar situation. I never insulted people, like Linus, but I would give very blunt feedback, because that’s how I like to receive feedback. It took me a while (I’m in my thirties now) but I eventually recognised that different people respond differently to different styles of feedback. So I would observe other people’s communication styles, and then mimic a person’s style when giving them feedback. It felt dishonest and almost manipulative at first, but I noticed how much smoother my interactions would be, and after a while I could do it without much effort. It made me more effective in teams, and I think my coworkers feel more positive about working with me these days.

                                1. 7

                                  Don’t reply on impulse. Play devil’s advocate when reading your replies. When in doubt, clarify that you are criticizing an idea or a behavior and not attacking the person behind it. If necessary, acknowledge and repeat back what the other person wrote to ensure you are understanding each other before responding.

                                2. 3

                                  I am on the spectrum and wasn’t diagnosed til my 40s.

                                  This is what surprises me about this post - and your comment. I’m not being judgemental - I’m just ignorant about the condition(s) other than exposure in the media - which must be the worst way to learn about anything.

                                  Linus is married and I expect he has a social circle apart from his professional and technical contacts.

                                  I’m surprised he hasn’t come to realise until now. Still good for him to publicly admit and address it - that alone takes a lot of bravery - including your comment.

                                  1. 11

                                    It was actually someone in my social circle who suggested I read Jon Elder Robison’s book, Look Me in the Eye, which began my journey. She said I reminded her a lot of him. When I was in grade school, Aspergers wasn’t really a thing to the point of mass awareness. When it became a thing, I was already in high school. I surely would have benefited from some special education in my more formative years of grade school, but instead I had to learn it the hard way through social failure. This method wasn’t always successful, either.

                                    Relationships of all sorts still baffle me, and I often question peoples’ choices when they make a beeline for the worse possible decision, when the best choice is obvious to me, but hey.

                                    Human behaviour is so broad that I suspect people on the Aspergers side of the spectrum were just dismissed with people saying, “Oh, that’s just John being John.” In my family, the behaviour was probably more accepted because after my diagnosis, and learning what to look for, it’s clear that my dad is on the spectrum, also. So my behaviour was just probably explained by “the apple not falling far from the tree.”

                                    Despite that, my mom definitely didn’t have the patience for a kid on the spectrum. It was bad.

                                    But becoming self aware later in life, from where I sit, is a common thing. With age comes wisdom, hopefully.

                                    1. 2

                                      Thanks for taking the time to reply,

                                      I was sent on a management course once which turned out to be a cleverly disguised self-improvement course but I think the thing that stayed with me more than anything was the instructor saying that “people are messy” - his exact phrase, repeated several times. I think part of what he meant was that there is no logic and no rules that govern everybody and every single relationship is unique and challenging in its own way.

                                      That freed me from a lot of prejudice and stress I think. Although it may sound scary that you can’t rely on a set of instructions or a template for dealing with people, it’s also quite liberating and helped me avoid stereotyping people and treat them more individually rather than thinking there is some cultural, racial, religious (or any other) “norm” for anyone.

                                      1. 3

                                        One thing I learned from working for this particular boss was, “What’s true for me isn’t necessarily true for you (or others). What struck me was a particular example he gave at a staff meeting, one day. This company had an inside sales force. It was phone stuff. They never left the office unless we went to trade shows, but he made them all wear ties because, “Wearing a tie makes you feel better, doesn’t it?” Well speaking for myself, it didn’t. Anything on or near my adam’s apple makes me gag, and wearing a tie all day was torture. The lesson learned was that HE didn’t see that what was true for him, wasn’t always true for everyone else. I applied that lesson to myself from that day forward. I think in management there are some universal truths about respect and behaviour that must apply to everyone, and then there’s all that individual relationship stuff you talked about.

                                        I also know that being on the spectrum, and being awesome like we are, doesn’t always allow us to see these things so clearly in the moment. After all it’s literally a brain wiring thing.

                                        For example. I see a person in this thread replying to everyone about how Linus doing what he is doing is BAD and this and that. I’m beginning to wonder if this person might not be on the spectrum, also, and might be unaware of what they’re putting out into the universe.

                                        Thanks to everyone who’s having a reasonable and rational discussion about this.

                                        BTW, I occasionally host panels at Sci Fi cons about Aspergers and Neuro-diversity with the title, “Sheldon, Asperger, and You,” and they have all been wildly successful. My hope is always to give someone else the gift of self awareness I got when my friend suggested Jon Elder Robison’s book to me.

                                      Thank you, progress will be slow as It’s difficult to prioritize OSS, but hopefully it will be steady. I have lots of existing code and prototypes already to pull ideas and code from.

                                        I use Zim which sources it’s completions from zsh-completions[1]. It’s nice but I’ve not had to hack on it much.

                                        I also use fzf completions for searching .history (bound to CTRL-R) and for files with fd[3] (bound to CTRL-T).

                                          I’m only new but the lack of political posts and NYT click-bait articles is nice compared to HN.

                                          1. 8

                                            I have noticed that a lot of content that is highly upvoted on reddit and sometimes hacker news is a very bait-y headline but when you click through to the article there isn’t any actual information or facts and often the title is a massive misinterpretation of what actually happened. For example there was news a few days ago that Mapbox was “Hacked” when what is almost certainly the case is someone just renamed a city in the OSM editor. It’s like calling wikipedia hacked when someone changes an article to an ASCII dick. Problem is the article will be highly upvoted and shared because saying something was hacked is more interesting and shocking.

                                            1. 7

                                              Watched site after site ruined by political nonsense/virtue signaling/buzzfeed top 10s as I fled to greener pastures. Slashdot, digg, Reddit, HN and others. It’s human nature. Combination of internet point euphoria and tribalism.

                                              1. 4

                                                That seems to be the way of every good website. Starts out with a core group of good members and starts to grow as more and more people find out about this place where all the good content is. The problem is, to keep the content above average quality, you have to keep the member base above average. And an above average member base can’t be the general public because then it would be average, which compared to this place is pretty low. Maybe the invite system will prevent the userbase growing too quickly, or maybe it will not. The thing that seems certain is that there will always be a place where high quality content and discussion is shared even if it isn’t this website, there will be new websites just as good.
