There is currently technology on earth that is capable of going from sea level to 70K ft in under 1 second. Are we really going to let the government hide this from us? They are acting like they don't know what these are but someone in the IC does!!! Let's shake things up and get disclosure!

I like /x/ posters because if anyone disagrees they band together like a duct-taped duo of monkies but then they spend 99% of their time infighting about random misc shit.
It's like when little kids play pretend together, but they both keep saying "no that's not how it is" and trying to force the way they want to play.

Does anyone else hate that Linux is becoming more mainstream? I feel that mainstream adoption is actively making Linux worse. I think flatpaks are subverting the whole model of package managers and why they were so much better than windows or Mac, but we keep pushing them so we can get some proprietary buy in so that the normies can have there convenience. I feel that the choice is slowly becoming choose a meme distro were you have to do everything yourself and not get anything done or pick a glorified android distro that will slowly become worthless without some corporate overload maintaining it.

Do not under any circumstances buy any Apple products if that is your attitude. You will only find despair. With Apple, you adapt to the system that Apple created, you don't try and force the products to work in the way you envision is correct like never using an account.

Brave search still seems pretty relevant, but we need some kind of opensource/decentralized search engine that doesn't just scrape google and bing. All we need is a method for storing and sorting sites and a big blacklist of news and stupid spam sites.

Please comment good sites worth archiving, good search engines, and places to find relevant based sites.

many smaller sites are usually relevant and better sources of information than stupid news articles. Think about it. Do you want popular trash or nietche gold? Obviously the second. Search engines used to and should behave this way, but nowadays it seems like there is literally a whitelist to show up on search results.

Look up an innocuous term on google and cycle through the pages. No personal blogs, no small websites, nothing like that. You'll find 10-12 distinct websites which all belong to some big corporation no matter how deep you go. Maybe it's the companies chimping out on SEO or something. Any good search engine should circumvent this.

Not always, as codes and regulations and design limits(cost) change. A 20 amp circuit might run the accessory outlets to 2 or even 3 bedrooms. Not saying it's common or normal, but you should always check what breakers control which rooms/outlets/areas when you move to a new place, and update or totally replace the god knows how old breaker box layout card. Always.

I've seen businesses with 25 year old cards that are both semi-unreadable and outdated to the point of half the described layout being totally wrong. Oops I just reset some control logic for the boiler when I was turning off what was labelled as the ventilation and A/C system, when the boiler and boiler control were clearly written as Breaker 21, not breakers 19 and 17.

I've got a big security concern I just stumbled on with gmail and I want to know what happened. Here's the deets:

1) I previously linked my gmail to a networking service.
2) I sent that service a direct email today.
3) I got a response that showed up in my inbox for a split second. I read about two lines and it disappeared.
4) I only saw it because it wound up in my Thunderbird inbox. I never saw it in my gmail (phone) and I can't get it to appear again in thunderbird.

So what the fuck just happened? If you link an account like that can they just nuke whatever emails they send you? What do I need to be doing differently?
>>
nvm I think I deleted the follow up message by mistake when I thought I just deleted 1/2.

So Thunderbird sucks ass. What's a good alternative?
