I think it's safe to say Reddit is no longer the hub of the internet. I tried to make an account last night, and for some reason all my posts were removed, I couldn't send any chat messages, or anything. Then i found out my account was shadowbanned for no reason.

Welcome to Reddit Technical Support my name is Sande- I mean George. It is possible that you have posted from an IP range known for abuse. Did you perhaps do the needful while connected to a VPN service or Tor? We will shadowban you for that.

>and for some reason all my posts were removed, I couldn't send any chat messages, or anything.
It's the StackOverflow problem. No one wants to deal with moderating new accounts so every board sets requirements that will autoremove your posts unless you have over a certain threshold of karma or your account is over a certain age. It's arguably necessary due to the ease with which new accounts can be created (they still don't even require an email), but it has made the site more or less impossible to use if you make the mistake of saying something unpopular.

Once you hit a negative karma count, the site itself throttles your ability to comment to once every 15 minutes, which makes it more or less impossible to participate in any given conversation. The ultimate hope is that you give up and go away.

Just use Facebook, the original Reddit.

Facebook was actually a fairly good platform until 2012 or thereabouts. Every redesign made it worse. The only feature they added in all those years was live messaging rather than the old email-inbox system they had in like 2009.

No idea why people are still on it.

One of the original Kubuntu devs is now a Trinity developer. They even made live ISOs of Ubuntu with Trinity installed, but the most recent is for bionic beaver. (I would provide a link but I don't want the jannies to ausrotten me). It's on the TDE wiki.

>Also, what's exactly the point of "Konqueror"? I couldn't get much use of it.
It's a file manager and web browser that can be extended greatly with plugins. I've never used a better file manager. I'm talking about the TDE version, which is from before they started stripping it down and replaced it with dolphin.

one of the main advantages of android is that it has rcs so you can send files up to ten gigabytes over text without any compression, it's annoying when people on iPhones send you a picture and it gets compressed to a couple kilobytes and looks like shit because they are still using old technology sms like it's 2003. sure they have imessage, but it can't send files over 100mb, and it's all over the internet through apples servers, and not through your cell providers dedicated rcs packet channels that are optimized for this stuff. iphone would be ok if everyone used them and everyone had imessage, but most people not in america use android, so if you use an iphone all the images you send people look like shit and they mess up rcs group chats, the group chats with iphones in them revert to mms which is shit.

It's retrobaiting the Amiga crowd but I guess it has "everything" you need in one kit.

When I was in university, I used to be just like you guys - I would make fun of code in open-source programs, be like "I can do that way better! Use a hashmap instead of hardcoded statements! His code is so inefficient" etc.
Now that I have my own tech products and have worked in industry, let me tell you - no one cares how code is written. It's a tool to get to an MVP as quickly as possible, then to get to market as quickly as possible. It really, literally, does not matter if your code isn't "muh big O notation" or "muh hardcoded" if it meets business requirements. It really makes less than a .1% difference in the real world

No, I'm saying the the most import thing in production coding is SOLVING PROBLEMS - most successful products come from identifying a problem, finding users who need it solved, and shipping something that works. It makes no difference if you use fancy algorithms or 20 if/then/else statements.
Speed is a good quality to have if all else is equal. But maybe... 5% of my time is spent coding. The rest is research, programming, product market fit, meetings, etc

Okay let's imagine there is indeed a backdoor in Intel ME and it has low level access to RAM and the Ethernet controller.

1. Wouldn't whatever data is being transmitted appear on a regular packet analyzer on another device acting as bridge?

2. Let's say they know the IP address of "person of interest", how would a glowie access the backdoor remotely to enable wiretapping and microphone recording (think about the technicality of it)?

they pitched a fucking fit and said they weren't able to do anything past AM3 and 775

Took apart said appliance and found a mic. Don't know much about air purifiers, but know there's no reason for it to have a mic. Mom put these around my house like crazy, but 100% she didn't plant mics in it, she's not petty or smart enough for that. Further research on the product said that it breaks down O3 and bacteria at a molecular level, but seems literally impossible since it has no fans and nothing high tech enough to do what it says. Seems like a scam, but still really concerned about the mic since there's so many in my house now. This is the manual/product description for the chip that the mic is connected to https://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/ne555.pdf I can't understand it but maybe someone else can
