Trump Assassination Attempt Megathread:
  • IBM stopped being relevant since the PC days. The moment the IBM exec who claimed that the market has in-demand for only "5-Mini computers", IBM lost the plot a long long time ago.

    Right now, IBM is mostly a holding corp. THey buy stuff, destroy it, and buy more stuff. Most of IBM innovations and engineers have moved on to other companies. IBM have zero or close-to-zero amount of real tech or IP. Most of it is just fluff and overblown BS.

    Redhat was already attempting being "like IBM" even before the buyout. But a lot of IBM techs were transferred over to Redhat.

    Redhat or IBM is just the lesser of evils. It is like blaming the Abacus maker or the calculator maker for the Nuclear Bomb.

  • Trump Assassination Attempt Megathread:
  • I dont know if you know, the CIA did a infiltration of a local dad group. Funded them with CIA money to buy guns, ammo, the entire op, planted themselves inside, pushed ideas by asking leading hypothetical questions, coerced them to act in certain suspicious ways.

    CIA are the worst thing that 'Muricans have as an agency. Instead of "keep 'Murica safe" they do these BS things which they did all over the world to destabilize legitimate govts.

    I wouldnt put it past the cIA to have "setup" a deranged individual with ideas to go do stuff at a rally.

  • The left-wing French coalition hoping to introduce 90% tax on rich
  • Controlling Fossil Fuel prices can prevent other private entities from driving up inflation of commodities. It doesn't have to be permanent, you could effect a set goal for 6 years, evaluate the results every 6 weeks, and tweak the pricing to prevent inflation/deflation cycles.

    While you control the transport costs, you can now plan on how much energy it is consuming to do the logistics. Even setup renewables for the remote regions with medium to large capacity backups ( not just chemical batteries, but pumped storage and other practical solutions ).

    You could increase the buffer between different urban zones, commercial, industrial, heavy commercial, dense residential, suburbian.

    • Energy storage densities.
    • Vehicular traffic densities.
    • Public transport frequencies.
    • Private traffic exemption zones.
    • Cycling/Pedestrian infrastructure.
    • Rent-controlled segmentation.
    • Recreational facilities , maintenance and usage.

    All of these things can be measured, calculated, even funded by simply controlling the Fossil-fuel prices.

    Imagine 10 or 20 stadiums with Extra-Large battery backups, only on game-nights the full bank would see utilization, rest of the time, half or even quarter of the load can be saved up for fluctuations. In emergencies the stadium provides power, safety, shelter and communal support.

    So many things can be planned around transportation and logistics. Fossil-fuel literally drives a lot of the traffic. Measure, calculate and control that and you have a reliable method to make sensible common sense decisions. Transparent for all citizens to see the data and the correlation. Accountable for every cent.

  • 70%
  • Senate pissed away their majority and thought that people wouldnt notice the stone-walling and nuclear option and other bullshit shenanigans that MAJORITY elected officials were letting Republizards get away with. Liebermann and other DINOs were allowed to run free and destroy the MAJORITY vote.


    Biden was the Veep responsible to ensure that Senate and the House did their job.

    Geriatric Dog Pony Soldier Biden screwed around during the Obama Presidency and now doing worse.

    Biden could nominate Bernie, dude is older than any one else. AND STILL THE DEMS WILL WIN THIS 2024!


    I feel worse than just cursing at the 'Murican stupidity on display. Hate this crap. You cannot blame voters when your candidate is brain-dead. So get serious or get out.

    Drumpf is elected because of all the lies he tells and not because he is competent. He is the "Set everything on Fire and watch it all Burn down" candidate. IF YOU CANNOT BEAT THIS DUMB DEADBEAT YOU ARE NOT WORTH ANYTHING.

    During the Drumpf Rule, Republizards silently pass every rule-breaking garbage and rig every system beyond breaking-point and create an unfixable situation everywhere again.

    Dem Candidate has to :

    • Inspire voters

    • Unbreak all the broken systems since the time of Jimmy Carter.

    • Implement new systems that are robust and unbreakable.

    • Imprison every rule-breaking politician regardless of party or affiliation.

    • Simplify everything for anyone earning below 1 MILLION USD.

    • Tax 90% everything for anyone earning above 1 BILLION USD.

    You need a very brave candidate. Bernie will do it. Biden is a zombie without even the brainworm.

  • first things first
  • Tigers exist natively is so few places, the question itself makes little to no sense.

    Bengal Tiger == Marshland

    Siberian Tiger == Tundra

    Asian Tiger == Plateau/Deep Forest

    Indonesian/Sumatran Tiger == Coast?Islands?Dense Tropical Jungle?

  • No yah dummy. Put the Room in the middle of the Earth and PUMP all the outside heat into the planet core!

    BAM! Instant Arctic Weather in the middle of summer !

    And BAM! Reverse it for the winter!

    BAM! Mild Temps all Year round!

    You can thank me later EnvironMentaLists!

  • The early 1900s and late 1890s was where a lot of classical physics and newer quantum theory got their legs under them. After WW2 pretty much most of our current physics knowledge was theorized and it is only now in the last 50 years or so we got about proving a lot of those theories. I believe some of the things got disproven real hard but majority of the predictions and theoretical physics has been solidified. Quantum physics is waaaay waaaaay more complicated now in last 100 years than anything in the previous 500 or even 1000 years ago.

    So, if you learn Newtonian physics and classical physics theory, even if you know just the basic linear/non-linear graphs and area under graphs, you can pretty much "guestimate" all the concepts and work the equations. It uses Maths called "Numerical Analysis and Methods". A lot of physics uses Maths so Maths-knowledge is essential.

  • Will Linux’s New run0 Command Run sudo Out of Town?
  • Corpo sabotage of opensource. So many community projects are under the thumb of corpo insiders. It was a "cash-grab" a way to shoehorn and takeover an essential but mostly unchanged and stable Init system. And they shimmed that into everything they could ram it into with no options or alternatives.

  • Will Linux’s New run0 Command Run sudo Out of Town?
  • You are not wrong. IBM management paralleled in the same cash-grab and exit C-suite functions that has consumed Redhat. That is why the merger happened.

    Soon, Purple Hat should be charging for systemd and hopefully other corpos and organizations will move back to sanity.

  • :: Spoiler discussion on DragonSteel Prime and also Way Of Kings Prime

    Has anyone read thoroughly DragonSteel and WayOfKings both as Prime-versions as well as the normal canonical versions?


    Spoiler WayOfKings Prime seems to be better than DragonSteel Prime.

    I found DragonSteel Prime kind of not a very good or even cohesive storyline compared to the WayOfKings Prime.

    WayOfKings-Prime reads almost like if someone tried to "Hollywood"-ify BrandoSando's WoK without really reading anything about Cosmere.

    But DragonSteel-Prime reads like some crazy drunk person tried to combine Pug/Magician and BelGarion/Belgariad(David Eddings ) and some more fantasy settings.

    I want more of these stories, the first drafts and the final editions ! It is very very fascinating how each story got revised, cut, re-written, re-arranged, etc.


    How to use Steamtricks or Winetricks

    Im on openSuse 15.4 and DX12 doesnt seem to have any workaround. How do I fix ? Can i install DX12 somehow ? Will Proton fix it with winetricks or steamtricks ?
