"Liberty is so great a magician, endowed with so marvelous a power of productivity, that under the inspiration of this spirit alone, North America was able within less than a century to equal, and even surpass, the civilization of Europe."

- Mikhail Bakunin

10 years locked in a cage for sharing knowledge, enforced by the Government--who is supposed to serve the people--at the behest of oligarchs who want total control of information. Imagine what we could achieve in this century that not even Bakunin observed. I mean free culture is exploding but what most people are exposed to is unfortunately not that system.

I'm on keto for a year off-and-on as of Thanksgiving. About calories-in-calories-out; when you do keto you will naturally eat a reasonable amount. I don't weigh my food or count calories at all, and yet I've lost over 60 pounds. I don't starve myself either. I still enjoy cooking and food in general.

you'll probably have to compile a lot of the software that you want to run under BSD wrong Unlike Linux, where everyone is using the same kernel oh god youre funny As such, selecting an implementation depends as much on low level details as it does on the userspace. don't even know wtf you're saying

Comment Whats a computer these days? (Score 1) 310

It matters what we define as "computer". A whole generation who grew up on bootstraping Free Unix OSes and reading code from the various IBM PC magazines of the 80s literally build the INTERNET and the companies around it. It was a virtue of necessity, but a still a point to consider. Kids today are not exposed to these sorts of things without outside intervention.

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
