Bottoming out is the impact when a key reaches the end of travel. The problem with many (but not all) cheap rubber dome keyboards is that the actual key-press is detected only very near the end of the total key travel available. So very soon after key-press registration the key cannot move down any more.
E.g. Cherry MX brown switches register key-press just after the tactile bump somewhere before 2 mm of travel down. The actual bottoming out happens at 4 mm. This gives you a bit more than 2 mm to stop pressing the key and avoiding the impact of bottoming out. I do not know any rubber dome keyboard which gives you so much length to stop pressing the key.
If you do not type a lot then there is no need for a mechanical keyboard.
Set up pulse audio the way you like it using pavucontrol.
Use "pacmd dump" to find the proper commands to do what you want.
Use pacmd with the selected comands at startup or add the selected commands to
Or you can just put the full configuration you dumped to your ~/.config/pulse/default.pa:
pacmd dump > ~/.config/pulse/default.pa
There is a good chance this helps you.
The specific example I mentioned in my post (people going to facilities end up dead, therefore the facilities are killing them) is also irrational, because it assumes causation where there is only correlation.
It may be rational if they do not have any other data. Especially the data whether the ill would die if they are not taken to the hospital. They may be trying to collect these data by taking people from hospital and waiting whether they die too. Though they should rather try not to even bring the ill to the hospital. Maybe that is the reason for destroing the hospital. So that it cannot accept future patiens and they can collect the right data (would ill people die even if they are not exposed to a hostiall).
A word from a white man telling them they would die outside a hosptital too is not worth much if white folks were lying before.
So tell me again how atheist are better than religious people?
Religion is actually very usefull for people. You need to realize that god is a universal excuse. If something does not go well we can always "blame" god instead of figuring out why it did not go well. If we do something wrong we can believe that god will fix it for us and pardons us (possibly after a confession). Or we can claim the god actually wanted us to do wrong. It allows us to stay lazy instead of improving ourselves. God is also very usefull for people who cannot cope with uncertainties of reality. Moreover it allows the clever people to manipulate the rest. Yeah we (as a society) pretty much need a god. So sad!
i was actually thinking the same thing
Not back-doored by the NSA: for all 99% of people know, Linux is back-doored by the NSA to high heaven.
Did you just pull this out of thin air, or can you back it up with some facts?
I would almost agree, that any language is as good as any other. With a few exceptions, like "whitespace" which isn't meant to be a practical language anyway.
You may be right if you talk within one group of languages like e.g. procedural. But there is quite a difference between groups: (procedural, functional, logic), (strict, lazy), (pure, with side effects), (dynamically, or statically typed, or untyped), (static, lexical, dynamic scoping).
No, programming languages are not equal to each other. They can be very different. But I agree that tools are important.
