Beware the fuck of anyone trying to convince you that solidarity with an oppressed group you do not personally belong to is some kind of false grievance on your part.

Oppressors depend on that shit among the general populace.

Crazy-ass Orange Man taking to Twitter to threaten summary execution of looters by the military

2020 kinda seems like *the year of* Fuck Around and Find Out especially now that we have a POTUS facing re-election in ~5 months currently threatening to execute American citizens in cold blood over insured property.

I'm not sure how many PerfectDisk users need to hear this and it might be obvious but you may be able to speed up your defrags quite a bit by allowing the engine to use more disk resources and CPU. On my mostly-idle system it seemed to boost things ~50-100% in my raw disk MB/s.

So let me get this straight I'm suppose to feel great remorse for some rando vigilante who was trying to stab black people just because she is "old" and in a wheelchair? Do those give someone a license to play Security Guard with a knife? Andy Ngo is a threat to communities.

Oh snap this just gave me an excuse to at some point buy one of those USB enclosures for M.2 drives to see how it fares under USB 3.2 speeds on the new X570 MoBo. Multiple birds with one stone or something like that.

Like well how do I see the limitations of the encryption layer when my USB 3.x media isn't particularly impressi-OH WAIT that thing I thought I'd never need yeah.

I might decide to look into it myself and run some rough benchmarks because I'm genuinely curious about the differences between VeraCrypt, LUKS, and BitLocker. What I've seen of BestCrypt benchmarks tells me not to bother because it was never particularly speedy.

I'm kind of surprised that there doesn't seem to have been many (if any) investigations yet into the performance difference between different encryption schemes for USB 3.x storage. I expect that VeraCrypt keeps getting worse w/each USB revision and wonder how others keep up.

They view class betrayers not as they are but as hypocrites, and give away their lack of historical understanding and context through their attacks on class betrayers. Or maybe they do understand the historical context and try even harder to dismiss and tear down betrayers.

It's always interesting to me when PMC-types like Hoarse Whisperer mock and ridicule certain Leftists because said Leftists were born into a family that has a comfortable amount of wealth. Like someone's can't criticize things from a Left perspective b/c their parents have money.

Got my hopes up seeing a screenshot of xsensors with all the motherboard sensors properly labeled and was like OMG NO WAY and installed it real quick. Then it disappoints me with this. Neat program, tho.

Gotta say one of my favorite things about Wayland on Linux vs. Xorg/X11 is that I don't have the GD Xorg process chewing through cycles in particular with lots of regional screen updates or when playing YouTube videos in various browsers. Seems much smoother esp. under load.

Spokane County is moving to Phase 2 and much of the local media seems to be absolutely elated about this development. The people? Not so much aside from a vocal minority.

Zstd and its developers continue to kick ass and chew bubblegum.

Zstd 1.4.5 Released With 5~10% Faster Decompression For x86_64, 15~50% For ARM64
