Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?

I'm so sick of teams and being pushed into groups I don't identify with whatsoever...

Left v Right
Black v White
Cis v LGBT
Linux v Windows
Python v Ruby
Nike v Reebok
Red v Blue
Europe v USA

Fuck all those stereotypes and judge people for what they say and do, not for what you make them out to be from the get go.

Short explainer on rsync options used:

-r makes the copy operation recursive through all directories under DCIM

-t preserves time stamps

-v provides verbose output to get info like progress

--info=progress2 shows a progress indicator percentage

--info=name0 prevents flooding the terminal with the entire list of files being copied

--ignore-existing ignores any existing files already present at the backup destination directory

For anyone on wanting reliable photo , I do as follows.

In 10, the iPhone’s DCIM directory is located at:


My backup directory of choice: /home/<username>/iPhone/DCIM/

I use rsync with the following options:

rsync -rtv --info=progress2 --info=name0 --ignore-existing /run/user/1000/gvfs/gphoto2\:host\=Apple_Inc._iPhone_<alphanumeric-string>/DCIM/ /home/<username>/iPhone/DCIM/

"The myth of the crisis" in the Guardian: "A moral right to express unpopular opinions is not a moral right to express those opinions in a way that silences the voices of others, or puts them in danger of violence. There are those who abuse free speech, who wish others harm, and who roll back efforts to ensure that all citizens are treated with respect. These are facts – and free-speech-crisis mythology is preventing us from confronting them."

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

Absolutely disgusting:

“How a Tax Break to Help Poor Communities Became a Windfall for the Rich”

“Former Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey; Richard LeFrak, a New York real estate titan who is close to the president; [...] and the family of Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, all are looking to profit from what is shaping up to be a once-in-a-generation bonanza for elite investors.”
