  7. Hey everyone. God knows when I was last online, I was half-expecting to be logged out when I clicked on this from my top sites in Firefox.

  10. Just hit me how Merkle trees work, and it's not as complicated as I thought! I'm studying cryptography to build a special kind of blockchain.

     

    Gotta keep learning at this rate, and before long I'll have a solid understanding of everything I need.

  12. It's becoming more and more noticeable that certain people, in all kinds of community that are big enough to care about, are highly motivated towards enforcing a certain brand of monoculture in the communities where they have authority. I'm not going to name names, but then again I really don't need to - they all share some pretty interesting behavioural traits:

    1. They avoid talking about their own ideologies altogether, making their motivation less obvious when they focus solely on tearing down the ideologies they oppose.
    2. They've sacrificed most, if not all, integrity, honesty and transparency, for the sake of propagating their perspective.
    3. They are classical sycophants, constantly vying for power over as many people as possible, because it makes it easier for them to push their ideas in more creative and discreet ways.
    4. And finally, in the usual nature of any extremist, these objectives consume a majority of their time and interest. It's addictive, in a way.

    It's certainly not something I'd rule out IRL, but it's very easy to notice in all sorts of places online. Needless to say, it's going to come to a head sooner or later and it must be stopped.

     

    The hard part for many is recognising these patterns of behaviour, though. In the past, people had to get really angry in masses before they just couldn't steam any longer, and started thinking of more calculated ways to put a stop to whatever's causing them distress. I can see it though, and I'm sure others do too, so I thought of writing up a forewarning as a reference piece.

      Awareness, primarily. I know it may not make sense immediately, but pushing out things that are 'opinionated' or 'controversial' actually makes it easier for them to rule out things that are opinionated/controversial that don't fit their perspective, leaving in things that do. It's why freedom of expression is the first amendment of the US constitution... they kinda saw this coming, because it happened a lot in the past.

       

      I think it happens in large part because the extremists are so off the deep end that they can't see how political all of their convictions and motivations are.

      Now that I think about it, it usually is largely political.

      I try to wear my opinions and ideologies on my sleeve, while some have questioned the necessity of it, I believe that doing so lets others make a more informed opinion about me.

       

      I don't understand why that is so hard for some, unless they have something to hide, then I get suspicious.

      Dude...great analysis!  I agree!  In fact, I liked and agreed with your post so much that I snipped a screenshot of your post and saved it to my computer.  This is pretty much the definition of a...what would you call it..."domestic extremist."

  15. There is no news. There is only… the truth of the signal! What I see. And, there's the puppet theater… the Parliament jesters foist on the somnambulant public.

    Can't stop the signal, Mal. Everything goes somewhere, and I go everywhere.

     

    Can’t stop the signal.

  18. My boss was hazing me the other day for still using Firefox…

     

    So I went home and found out more than twice as many people use IE11 in 2017 than people use Firefox. What the hell happened?

      For those that think that the new FF is shit, TRY FIREFOX NIGHTLY. It's got its own style, its own feel, it's faster than Chrome, and it's generally REALLY GOOD

      @Droidbot  Trying it out right now, it definitely feels better than standard Firefox.  Thanks.

       

       

       

       

       

      Fucking Yahoo search, nobody likes you!

      Im trying it right now myself, and still has shit like tabs on top as only option without some kind of plugin. Thanks to firefox following chrome's footsteps, webpage titles are useless.

      It was an action replay code I made for super mario 64 DS... The name was so stupid I decided it should be a username, and its stuck with me, literally all my accounts use it

  20. Some writing I did for my novel before bed tonight:

  21. Here’s the new deal: Saving notifications.

     

    Since you guise are such Chatty Cathies, I came back to ~850 notifications on here after leaving for two months. How long can I go without clicking?

      I'd love to know how many notifications are from me.
