>Google has been forced to shut down a data analysis system it was using to develop a censored search engine for China after members of the company’s privacy team raised internal complaints that it had been kept secret from them, The Intercept has learned.

>The internal rift over the system has had massive ramifications, effectively ending work on the censored search engine, known as Dragonfly, according to two sources familiar with the plans. The incident represents a major blow to top Google executives, including CEO Sundar Pichai, who have over the last two years made the China project one of their main priorities.

>The dispute began in mid-August, when the The Intercept revealed that Google employees working on Dragonfly had been using a Beijing-based website to help develop blacklists for the censored search engine, which was designed to block out broad categories of information related to democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest, in accordance with strict rules on censorship in China that are enforced by the country’s authoritarian Communist Party government.

>The Beijing-based website, 265.com, is a Chinese-language web directory service that claims to be “China’s most used homepage.” Google purchased the site in 2008 from Cai Wensheng, a billionaire Chinese entrepreneur. 265.com provides its Chinese visitors with news updates, information about financial markets, horoscopes, and advertisements for cheap flights and hotels. It also has a function that allows people to search for websites, images, and videos. However, search queries entered on 265.com are redirected to Baidu, the most popular search engine in China and Google’s main competitor in the country. As The Intercept reported in August, it appears that Google has used 265.com as a honeypot for market research, storing information about Chinese users’ searches before sending them along to Baidu.

Innocent question here:

Why doesn't any Linux distro have an installation paradigm like MacOS or even Windows ? Why are there so many different package management methods ?

Installing from terminal, e.g. via na .sh file or whatever is really not user friendly at all and it just baffles me why no project has really done anything about this.

That's why I said:

>we

>>1002701

Hit the nail on the head. Saying "we" in place of "them", "me", "I", "they", etc. is ignorant because you are not part of anything. You are an individual. And no piece of software has _ever_ been developed by a community, but rather individual devs who often go unnoticed as reddit skids like you who think they're "part of something".

Furthermore, the whole statement _is_ ignorant. Who would control this? Anyone can make a distribution. The glory of GPL2 free software is that anyone can distribute it. Therefore, rather than all distros having a unified package manager that is (somehow? by what and who's metric?) objectively better, your statement should have been "I wish there was a distro with a package manager that is objectively best". But this is silly. Who cares that you want that? Furthermore, every anon has this sentiment, yet many are smart enough to know that.

I have one more issue with this whole statement tho. Who's going to do it? If not you, than how can you expect someone else to? The point of free software is that if you want something done, do it. Not a developer or sys Admin? Than why do you care? Don't tell me you're just parroting arguments you've heard, anon.

At this point you're just projecting your insecurities, since he never said anything even remotely related to these. Your obsession with pronouns is retarded, nobody thinks so fucking deep into their meaning. You read it as "we, the 8chan community" or whatever, some other guy read is as "we, as a civilization". Your entire argument (if it can even be called that) is just a derailment into semantics, literally a straw man.

Even if your display manager managed to start Xorg as non-root or if your init system started Xorg or whatever the fuck you're pulling out of your LARPing ass. It-Does-Not-Fucking-Matter.

This has nothing to with your running X session, you don't need a running X session for this exploit, all you need is a vulnerable Xorg binary (/usr/bin/Xorg) with the SUID bit set (every distro does this).

It's also fucking hilarious how everyone keeps copy-pasting "root::16431:0:99999:7:::" and thinking it's some sort of secret code, it even got censored in the computerphile video, you can just use "root::::::::" and it works the same, because all of the fields but the first (the username) are optional, the guy who tweeted the one-liner probably just copy-pasted his line from his /etc/shadow and deleted the password field (which is the second).

Is there a search engine that will filter out any results that have cookies or js in them? More than filter out, it would base its results on that subset of websites only. I.e., it would NOT pagerank the currently available sites, and then apply the filter, but rather it would apply the filter first, and then pagerank THOSE sites.

Wouldn't the subset of the web consisting of no-js essentially be late 90s early 2000s web? I'm not talking about js being bad or good, but in a "media is the message" kind of way I'm wondering about the culture of those sites without js being indicative of a higher quality of content for its users. In other words, does no-js imply a certain culture (beyond just "fucking autistic weeb")?

If you're playing a live instrument through an audio interface to record a track in your DAW, through an FX plugin, then routed out to your headphones (live monitoring), you need to have it under 10ms latency or your ear will notice it is out of phase, and you won't be able to play along with drums, and your performance will just generally suck. It's hard enough to get low latency without a virtualization layer, and pretty much impossible with it.

Why the FUCK are there so many trans glownigs in the tech industry? Have you seen feminist & trans glownig auto mechanics or lumberjacks? What or who is attracting these cancers?

We should go back to the good days where the industry was about meritocracy.

I click on their profile and then can easily block the whole instance without regret if it's something like lgbtq.club or whatever. Many of these instances have blocked federation with other instances which support free speech, so the whole Fediverse is effectively sharded.

Only if they paid from their own pockets and they really couldn't since worst case you can import lumber. Also having no coal wouldn't be a problem (unless it happens from one day to the next), there's a dozen other ways to make power and most don't darken the skies as much. And tech companies are worth more and have more influence over other industries than wood.

>>1009073 is right that it's about power, and unlike other areas that hold power like politics or being a CEO of a huge corporation it's easy for them to infiltrate tech and easy to offload the work to a cuck.

Yes, i don't remember the name of them off hand but the idea is a good concept but almost all implementation of it is poor. It's very expensive to have them custom made and almost always cause defects in vision, such as blurry spots, or double vision. Also almost all trials with them originally were made out of material that caused a lack of oxygen to flow to the eye causes severe medical problems. Materials now are better, but remember this only reshapes the lenses and not the entire eye ball (or not enough) so it doesn't fix the underlying issue. If there was a way to fully encase the eyeball (there isn't since it's inside your head) you could maybe properly reshape it but you need to remove pressure on the lens at the front while doing it (which is what most people focus on anyway). It's an option but its just not very practical overall.

Just be careful. When you look up close, you're mainly only exercising your cillary muscle causing accommodation and (temporary) elongation. Just remember that focusing up close literally squeezes your eye ball increasing occular pressure (pressure inside the eye) and prolonged focusing leads to eye strain (well researched/documented) and potentially "permanent" elongation.

*bump* I have this weird thing where I can see double with just one eye. No matter which eye I close, I see the normal image and floating slightly above it a faded copy of it. The second image is not blurred, it is just as sharp as the original. This is particularly noticeable when I look at light text on black background, some colorschemes are unusable for me, while something like Solarized Dark is very comfortable. Any idea what that could be?

>The problem with looking up close is excessive accommodation which leads to excessive elongation which leads to your retina detaching.

Source? I REALLY find it hard to believe the ciliary body has sufficient contractile strength to cause enough deformation of the sclera, and thus rupture the very tight bond of the retina. Sure, you only need to damage the most anterior part of it to cause gradual damage by dissection by the vitreous, but again, I seriously doubt that is the case, and not another underlying cause.

Source your claim, please.
