@leip4Ier Kind of a shame that we can’t do all the cool security things at home, but I can’t blame the engineers behind game consoles for not implementing a feature that literally has “enterprise” in the name. If only they’d called it “WPA2-Cool”
Hi everyone we should run all the world because we are hyper-rational beings and computers, if programmed correctly, are incapable of error. We don't like to brag, but we're just... better than you.
ALSO COMPUTER PROGRAMMERS:
FIX our bugs?? BEFORE release? I'm sorry, that is silly. It is mathematically impossible for any software to not have bugs! And mathematically impossible for us to find them when they do exist. In conclusion, give us all your data and your economy.
Thank god the entire industry hasn't decided to revolve around Blink/Chromium for 95% of the web's browser traffic, or else Google would have an unlimited ability to push forward whatever bullshit standard they wanted.
Wait hold on, my producer is telling me something [places finger on my ear piece]
In the last few months:
- Tumblr purged adult content (and a bunch of stuff it misindentified).
- Flickr purged free storage above a limit of 1000 photos/account.
- Myspace deleted 12 years' worth of music.
And Google+ only has two weeks left before Google pulls its plug.

Ten years ago, I didn't know what unit tests, version control, or continuous integration were.
Today, my code fails at each of these steps at least once a day.

"In retrospect, it’s unsurprising that a lot of New Atheism devolved into reactionary, antifeminist, and even white supremacist thought, because it was never really about the things it claimed to be about. The dominant affect of New Atheism wasn’t humility, or reflexivity, or curiosity, all the things one truly needs to improve intellectually. It was smugness."

Still, I guess I want to understand what the core problems are, or the core motivations for living a FLOSS lifestyle. Even as someone who uses an Ubuntu laptop and a damn LineageOS phone that breaks half the time, I still don't quite understand.
Am I trying to maximize freedom? Privacy? Utility? Some imagined ideal of computing that used to exist, but isn't really relevant anymore? Honestly I don't know. I guess that's my answer for now. Fin.

GPS' week counter rolls over in April this year (1024 weeks). Guessing it's already possible to SDR spoof devices to see if they mind...?
