EU Copyright Law

>... any online community, platform or service that has existed for three or more years, or is making €10,000,001/year or more, is responsible for ensuring that no user ever posts anything that infringes copyright, even momentarily. This is impossible, and the closest any service can come to it is spending hundreds of millions of euros to develop automated copyright filters.

>any link that contains more than "single words or very short extracts" from a news story must be licensed, with no exceptions for noncommercial users, nonprofit projects, or even personal websites with ads or other income sources, no matter how small.

Why aren't we discussing this?

It used to be a site, when prompted to do so, just had to delete the violating content posted by a user and they were fine. Now that's not the case and they will be fined instead.

Shitty thread. It's normal that big institutions institutions call the system "Linux" instead of "GNU/Linux", because they don't know the system's history, or it is inconvenient to them to say "GNU" and "free software". Imagine what would happen if all people using for exaple Android, thinking that it's open source and "Linux", realised that it doesn't respect users' freedom? When you say "Linux" you mean convenience, when you say "open source" instead of "free software", you mean it is easy to develop, cheap, nothing more.

This is what happens, when you don't know history:

>It is this kernel which, after its initial release by Linus Torvalds in 1991, jump-started the development of Linux as a whole.

https://www.linuxfoundation.org/projects/linux/

Where I live oscilloscope are very expensive, think 300 or 400 dollars for the shittiest 20mhz used one.

The reason the common conversion of a TV into an oscilloscope doesn't really work beyond audio frequencies is that the RF signals are blocked by the inductance of the coils that are used to control the electron beam.

So could a TV CRT beam be deflected electrostatically by placing high voltage electrodes OUTSIDE the tube? Maybe a little bit of tinfoil glued to the neck of the CRT? (since the glasswork and vacuum pump work to get electrodes inside the tube would be impractical to do)

I made a kit one when I was a Highly Gifted Teenager who solved all problems by himself.

The companies involved are long-gone, but this was a Dick Smith Electronics Kit K-3060.

It simply generated a vertical line on the screen, shifting it left or right on the signal amplitude. Okay for Audio-- I mostly used it with 555-based circuits. Was funky.

My excuse was being a nerd being raised by a single mother who blew all the money on cigarettes. (My first breadboard circuits were made screwing wires into pieces of wood with components pulled from dumped TV sets..)

He's referring to Ian Murdock the founder of Debian. He's lying about that though. Ian Murdock had stepped down as a maintainer for Debian and had pursued other work after Debian. He was already disconnected from Debian for many years when he died as a mentally unstable person at the hands of the police. The conspiracy theorists have a habit of jumping to conclusions and this situation is no different. This guys is interpreting the facts as an assassination job connecting Red Hat's development of Systemd to the death Ian Murdock.

I have been using uBlock Origin for a long while now but that might come to a end soon.

It started when I went to YouTube and it failed to block advertisements in videos. Not exactly sure how YouTube did this but they basically broke uBlock Origin and made it so that it plays advertisements that you can't skip if it detects you have a adblocker.

Not sure how many are effected but if I can't find a solution I might have to find some alternative. Any suggestions?

That's not because driver devs are retarded, but hardware manufacturers are - they won't tell how the hardware works, they'll just give you a binary blob. There are some backward engineering efforts, but it is hard and firmware is often signed with a crypto key, so you can't use your own software on that hardware.

The solution is to support only copmanies that produce libre hardware.


 No.1050920

>>1050889

Libre hardware is great to have but not necessary. What's absolutely necessary is accurate technical documentation about the specifications of the hardware. When programmers have the proper specifications, then the programmer should be able to write the appropriate driver for the hardware device. Libre hardware should have this level of technical specification. However it's perfectly fine for a black box device as long as the interfaces and relevant internal knowledge are documented for the programmer.

Privacy for the win! Startpage.com defeats Google and Bing to become best search engine

By Brian Fagioli

>Google may be the world's most popular search engine, but that doesn't necessarily mean it is the best. Don't forget, Google is notorious for tracking users and logging search activity. Not to mention, there are many other search engines out there, such as Microsoft's Bing, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo to name a few.

>Believe it or not, a lesser-known search engine, Startpage.com, has defeated Google (and all others) to become the search champion! You see, following an in-depth investigation, German organization "Stiftung Warentest" has declared the search engine to be the best. Not familiar with that organization? Please know, it is similar to Consumer Reports in the USA. So yeah, this is a big deal. And yes, Startpage.com also defeated fellow privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo.

>"The testing involved comparing 50 search queries, that in some cases included typos, vague descriptions, and other ambiguities. Then the relevance of the first six search results was evaluated. The quality of the results were then reviewed in light of other search engine features and policies," says StartPage.com.

>Robert Beens, the company's CEO explains, "We are honored to achieve first place in this test. It shows that private search has come a long way and that it's not necessary to track people to attain award-winning service and profitability."

>While this is certainly good news for Startpage.com and the privacy community overall, "best" is obviously subjective. In other words, if you don't care about privacy and tracking, Google could possibly be the best for you. Hell, I know some folks that swear Microsoft's Bing is the greatest. With all of that said, StartPage.com provides Google search results without all the tracking -- it's the best of both worlds!

duckduckgo is privacy focused and doesn't try to curate results according to your search history. But its still not quite as good as google for finding things.

Is there any search engine you can unironically use as a substitute to google or are we pretty much stuck with them forever?
