Zero Edge Waiting for apple to release a foldable iPhone. I like them.
🌲 Tho apple is usually 10 years behind in terms of features compared to android, so you'll have to wait for a while :D
🏒 Lucian Marin In other news, tookapic.com is shutting down. It launched in 2014, same as Sub. Their comments section was an inspiration for how replies look here. I will never shut down Sub now that is has this nice .com domain. I optimized the backend performance for the cost of a Netflix/Spotify subscription.
☕✍️ David Antoine Do you have new features in mind for Subreply in the near future or are you pretty happy with it as it is for now?
🌲 Tho long live sub!!
🏒 Lucian Marin Mozilla should rename Firefox back to Mozilla while it's not to late.
☝ Jean-David Moisan Why should it get renamed?
🐇 Robert Blinov Being paranoid helps with surviving.
☕✍️ David Antoine Fear is a survival mechanism. Except in Hollywood movies... Although I think our sedentary societies and the confort associated with it have put that mechanism on the back burner, to an extent. But also due to medias, entertainment and social networks. It seems we act much more like a pack of sheep, not really foreseeing or even reacting to impending danger... It's like natural selection is filtering out paranoid or fearful people as it is not anymore a survival trait.
🐓 Mega Tried to edit my profile; I don't think I can set "Washington, DC" as my city, how would I do it? (I guess I could just put "Washington" but it's not really the same since it's in the District of Columbia.
🏒 Lucian Marin Try Washington, United States. It works. I will try to match location by city name alone.
🏒 Lucian Marin Should I believe GoAccess when it says that Subreply gets ~1500 daily unique visitors?
☕✍️ David Antoine How many total accounts ? 3000 ? That would be half of the users visiting daily, pretty good I guess...
☝ Jean-David Moisan It's definitely hard to believe. I guess it's possible if most people lurk without any account. We have around ~50 active people otherwise. Might be bots browsing the site?
🐇 Robert Blinov Government has one mission: to eliminate itself without creating any new suffering.
☕✍️ David Antoine If anything governments will be eliminated by corporations, that is most certainly their end goal. I don't think human communities or society can respectively live or exist without some level of hierarchy or framework. Human nature makes concepts like anarchy pure utopia imho. Problem of our governmental systems is that they attract people who want power. Most good people don't want to have such responsibilities by fear of doing things wrong. Bad people don't care & abuse it.
🌲 Tho macports vs homebrew?
🏒 Lucian Marin I only used homebrew. It has everything I need.
☮ Christopher Patti Homebrew by a long shot. The only reason to even entertain Macports is if you have a beef with the way Homebrew is laid out. Macports purists take issue with putting things into /usr/local. My take? It works so I could care less :)
Zero Edge Over half of the US population is living in an alternate reality where 1 out of 2 people who get the cooties has to go to the hospital. archive.fo/ZdJRX
☕✍️ David Antoine Is it just me or is it pretty rare to see those balanced and not politically biased articles in the New York Times? That was interesting to read though nothing exceptional, more people should have that balanced position...
🌲 Tho privacy is a meme. i'm anti-privacy. ask me why
🏒 Lucian Marin Follow the white rabbit.
🌲 Tho okay, i finally got my MacBook air. now what language should i learn in order to make money on it? i guess c++ is out of contest because of the different architecture?
☮ Christopher Patti Swift. It's the language Apple is pouring money into. The Swift playground seems like a neat idea. Alternately, if its level of abstraction is too high and that makes you itch, you could always try Objective C I guess? :)
🧐 Nrmn Did anyone here look into handshake.org already?
🐇 Robert Blinov Yep. I own some HNS and a few Handshake domains, and encouraging others to adopt the technology. Selling a domain right now: namebase.io/domain...
🐇 Robert Blinov Smart people are being silenced so stupid people won't be offended.
🏒 Lucian Marin Tom said something similar on !co9: idiots want to punish the non-idiots for the problems idiots create.
Zero Edge Just fyi, from an employer: If you have no work history from about May 2020 - September 2021, you look like a lazy who sat on the sidelines while the majority of us worked our butts off. Gives off a bad impression. Probably better to make something up for those dates..
🐓 Mega "Worked on personal projects" lol
Zero Edge 10% (about 250k) of deaths per year in USA are due to medical mal practice. Some estimates say as high as 16% (440k). No one cares about these deaths.
🐇 Robert Blinov Makes one think about how many "Covid deaths" were actually medical malpractice...
