The CCP knows they are living on borrowed time and are going to do everything in their power, including perhaps returning to the days of the cultural revolution if it finds it necessary.
The CCP uses fear of the cultural revolution as a way to stay in power. That's what all the talk about 'Harmony' means. Not many people in China want to go back to that. They understand it made no sense to have red stoplights mean go,for example.

FWIW that won't work, they can triangulate based on cell towers.
Governments are trying similar shit, by silencing dissent with summary penalties for as-yet undefined "trolling".
What governments are you talking about here?
This code is known insecure. If you ship on a real device to customers, you are such a moron that........imagine every insult Linus Torvalds has ever spoken or written, and that it applied to you. Would you want that? That's what would be the case if you used this in production code.
Furthermore, even if you're the dumbest person on earth, shipping this code on real devices could expose you to threats of lawsuits. I don't know if those threats are real, but don't let it get to that point.
Below I will paste the specific patent's independent claims. I don't think this can actually cover generic software written for the PC, because of the 'secret memory' and the fact that they have patented the device implemented in hardware, not a software implementation of the algorithm (and how many computers actually have a pseudo-random shift register?)
1. Method of producing an authentication code (CA), comprising cycles for reading binary words (Mn) out of a secret memory (21) comprising a plurality of binary words, wherein, at each cycle, the address for reading a word out of the secret memory (21) is generated from an address generating binary word (GA) forming the result of a combination operation (Fc, ) of words (M1 to Mn) read out of the memory during previous cycles, characterised in that it comprises a transform operation of the address generating word (GA) consisting in logically combining at least one bit (g'0, g'1, g'2) of the address generating word (GA) with at least one bit (r1, r4, r6) of a pseudo-random shift register (26).
8. Logic machine (20, 20-1, 30) clocked by a clock signal (H), comprising a secret memory (21) in which a plurality of binary words read out at clock rate are stored, wherein the output of the memory (21) is applied to a first input (A) of a logic circuit (22) whose output (C) is fed back to the second input (B), the logic circuit (22) performing a combination (Fc, "+") of its two inputs (A, B) and producing an address generating binary word (GA) supplied to the address input (ADR) of the memory, characterised in that it comprises a pseudo-random shift register (26) and logic means (25-1, 27) for combining at least one bit (r1, r4, r6) of the shift register (26) with at least one bit (g'0, g'1, g'2) of the address generating word (GA).
You mean VI, the notepad for Unix?
VI is another fine tool. Portable, easily replaced, a good citizen. It-that-must-not-be-named is certainly not VI.
Despite the fact you can lose your history (irrevocably if you try) and screw things up even if you don't.
Probably not, everything in git can be undone (except something like rm -rf *
Who is ESR? Why is he/she/it supposed to be a household name around here?
I'm shocked (shorting out usb ports need fixing) I haven't seen this posted... I guess if it doesn't say systemd that rhetoric doesn't apply.
Because the people who don't like emacs don't use it. No one builds software with emacs as a dependency and then tried to get every Linux environment to use it as a core dependency.
Emacs is a good citizen. It is cross-platform, stable, and easily replaceable. Unlike it-that-must-not-be-named.
1) Be easy for distro builders to work with
2) Be easy for developers to implement
3) Accommodate people who still want to do their own thing
4) Be implemented in a diplomatic way, so people will be willing to compromise.
I forgot one here:
2.5) Be easy for system admins to work with.
That shows a huge problem in your understanding of system design, which you should fix now or continue making poor systems. Stability in a core system component is a good thing, not a bad thing. Don't forget it and your code will be better.
Even SysVinit isn't in such a hot state, it haven't made a release in five years
This kind of stability is a good thing.....once you get a tool right, it shouldn't need to change much.
The fact that we are still arguing about how to do an init system 30 years into Unix is ridiculous.
