It’s me, Mr. Gaming
This post is really overdramatic… How good Reddit is depends on the sub. I frequent /r/linux_gaming for example and it’s a very chill place with good discussion. If you don’t like a sub, don’t use it, but to dismiss and insult everyone who frequents there is dumb…
The upvote-downvote feature is the worst mechanic to plague social media.
Okay, suggest a good alternative to filter out trash in social media. Every alternative without voting ends up being like 4chan, a cesspool where people shout the stupidest most insane (and often offensive) things and you’re forced to trudge your way through it to find any decent content. At least when I open something like /r/television, I expect to see stuff people enjoy and articles of interest.
None of the alternatives in the article are real alternatives too. It just sounds like OP got fed up with social media and decided to do something else in their life, which yeah sure but it sounds like you just need to chill out and be the one to ignore the “drunk loud idiots” and just browse places you like.
Why do you think i should get 6gb? Makes my apps run slower?
Yeah, having low ram makes your phone slower in general. Newer versions of Android use a lot of ram, so if you get 4gb your phone can be choppy and it’ll only get worse over time. Best to get 6gb or preferably 8gb if you want to be using your phone for years to come.
Was that before or after Microsoft bought them? Does Microsoft have leaks often?
Microsoft is usually on top of privacy stuff but the companies they buy operate mostly independently from what I hear. I don’t think there’s much correlation.
The big leak happened last year though, it was a massive fuck up from linkedin. Almost everyone’s data got leaked. https://restoreprivacy.com/linkedin-data-leak-700-million-users/
First I’ve heard of it. Here’s the thing, there are alternatives but what matters is which is popular. Company presence is the most important thing in these websites, when I attach my LinkedIn profile to a job it increases my chances of being seen by a lot. If I attach something like Xing they’ll probably just ignore me.
It’s like WhatsApp. Are the great alternatives? For sure. Does it matter? No, because my family and colleagues and normie friends are too resistant of letting it go, so I’m forced to use it. Best I can do is get my inside circle to use something else.
Depends on how much you care about privacy. There are a lot of not bad chinese phones in the low/medium price range. Realme phones are pretty good for the price. Samsung a52 and a52s are pretty good as well though a bit more expensive. Both of these have great cameras. I would recommend a phone that is at least 6gb of ram though, 4 is way too low these days.
Copyright is theoretically a good idea but what ends up happening the last few decades is that it’s just become about companies that abuse the system to hoard as much intellectual property as possible. It’s absolutely ridiculous that most of the time an author’s work belongs to a company, and a company will run it into the ground even after the author’s dead (see: Spongebob). And they keep extending copyright dates because Disney keeps whining while owning most of the entertainment industry.
Then you have stuff like Alan Moore’s works. The man has gone insane from how much they milk his works and make bad interpretations of it.
It’s a riff off an old meme and I will not accept slander about it
Bruv, I skipped through most of that and saw this interesting line at the footer
You also should consider the fact that if humanity itself becomes worthless, then good software no longer has any value. To fight the degeneration of humanity, you might also consider my Arkian project.
Then things got really wild. I don’t wanna derail this thread too much, but that dude literally owns a cult where he wants to do a noah’s ark style system where he only allows intelligent or very religious people in where they would be “safe from genetic decay” and be the perfect family. It’s TempleOS levels of screaming for help. Dude needs to chill out and see a therapist. Wild stuff.
Honestly I feel like it’s a thing that is becoming better as time goes on. A lot of people say the opposite, but it’s the 2010s that things went really south. Electron being the prime offender. A lot of what made bloat maddeningly big is starting to get scaled back.
Electron is very slowly being phased out in favor of Tauri (Electron binary size 127mb compared to Tauri’s 6mb). NodeJS is slowly getting phased out in favor of Deno (Lighter, more secure). There’s been a trend of re-writing things with Rust which makes things faster and tiny. Most bloated apps now usually have an open source alternative that does the same thing better (see for example OBS as opposed to how I had to fight with my system to record my screen before that)
The reason big tech companies like Microsoft and Facebook are so chalk full of bloat is because they’re using old technology, and they’re in too deep that they don’t have the time to re-write a decade of progress in something else. If you use the right tools nowadays though, I feel like you’re likely to get much better results.
Side note: someone in the comments of that article compared people writing bad code to 1984. Lol.
Other side note: Dude writing this article is the developer of Gratitious Space Battles. Hey, I used to really love that game.
It was on life support for a long time, and it doesn’t make sense to have Atom around considering VS Code is almost exactly the same thing but better and faster. If you really loved Atom there are themes that make VSCode look almost exactly the same.
