You can't compare industrial farming economics to a local community polyculture farm. It's a completely different game. I would argue the local CSA model is far more sustainable than industrial ag, and this is a clear example.
Industrial Ag requires thousands of acres of subsidized monocrop, big machinery, expensive seed (thanks to Monsanto), expensive fertilizer, transportation, and low-wage farmers and crop pickers to make a profit. It's an industry supported by big ag corporations and (thanks to their lobby efforts) government to maximize profit for the few at the top of the chain. The farmers and crop pickers are the last in line, as far as the revenue stream.
A CSA puts money in the farmers and crop workers first, works within and supports the local community. That's why it works, that's why it's sustainable, and expect to see more of them because the local food movement has legs, not because it's a fad, but because it is rooted in a sustainable design model.
Google is a verb. I think they've won. Pass the kleenex please, I need to put a bandaid on this jello.
Friends who are not my friends apparently want me to stop finding meaningful results.

But a few X fanbois think they know better 'cuz hmm erh.... network transparency!
One way or the other, networked Wayland will get figured out - I don't need X primitives across the wire, I just need to run an app. This can be figured achieved.
I'm more concerned that security is an afterthought in Wayland, and it'll get bolted on at some point. X's security is enough to make an auditor's skin crawl and Wayland isn't (yet) any better.
Maybe Wayland will forever be a development idea and somebody will fork it to address practical concerns. It might not even be too early for a fork - for as long as large numbers of people have been expressing concerns about both issues, we (meaning I, casually) haven't heard any recognition from the project that those are important issues and design work is taking those needs into consideration.
Mega has been up far more than six months already, and Google is the last place I'd ever go for longevity of their flavor of the week projects...
I'm not bummed about the $20, but I am bummed about the letter.
I get that costs are going up. But the letter cited three things:
1) cost of fuel
2) prime video
3) prime kindle books
The cost of fuel has not gone up year-over-year. If anything, motor vehicle fuel costs are down a little bit, and anything that's fungible for natural gas has gone down.
So, Prime Video. It's a "free perk" but now you've got to pay for it.
3) Kindle books. I use the Kindle app, but I don't own an Amazon device so I don't even get this. Amazon even knows there's not a hardware kindle linked to my account - they could have tailored the letter.
So, that leaves me with the apparent idea that I need to pay $20 a year for Prime Video, which ain't much to write home about. If I had the imaginary choice, I'd gladly lose access to it for the $20.
But, since I'm smart enough to realize that Prime only appears to be paid for by unicorn farts, I would have appreciated an more forthright letter. I'm not gonna cancel, but the operation seems like it's getting a few cracks.
I suppose a would-be assassin would take a random pot shot at the guy, but that speaks more to how that motorcade shouldn't be so obvious when it is passing through either.
Perhaps it speaks more to being the head of an organization that is so reviled. Jefferson made note of the huge lines of people who would come to his office to complain about this or that. He only detested the ones who came seeking political appointments. I never read about anybody taking so much as a swing at him in his office.
I've yet to see anything that eliminates either possibility.
Not 'eliminates' per se, but local Malaysian media was reporting that one of the pilots' homes was searched by officials. Officials denied that it happened, of course.
Assuming that's true, this may turn out to be a heist more than a hijacking. I'm just not sure who it would be worth it for. Most States can buy an airliner easily enough (and the ones that can't aren't in the immediate vicinity of the Indian Ocean). Most non-state-actors would have trouble hiding an aircraft of that size given the runway requirements.

Ah yes, the spelling ad hom and no actual refutation.
It's a "conspiracy theory." when you have no actual data to back up a statement. Usually note be the ever expanding circle the conspiracy must encompass when you raise questions about the person uttering the conspiracy theory.
I'm sorry* reality doesn't coincide with your pet narrative. Doubly sorry* you seem to be aware of critical thinking, yet have no idea how to use it or what it actually is.
*I'm no really sorry.
