nobody wants to spend Â£1000+ on a device which makes shitty low quality christmas cracker toys. It was obvious from the start that this was this seasons desktop publishing fad. The sort of people who it was argued would use these are already aware of better alternatives.

That's generally a good idea but it's wise to consider whether sometimes a better solution is arrived at via integration of multiple pieces of functionality. One of the things I've really enjoyed lately is neovim. It's essentially vim, but amongst the improvements is a built in terminal. Why not use vim (or neovim) and tmux? Because having the terminal built in is just better, that's why. No need to install and configure the apps separately, and when you're using neovim on multiple platforms, that saves me time.
It has to be said that most major distros are using systemd. If you want to use this one, better hope it's supported for the lifetime of whatever project you're using it for.
Your two sentences are at odds. He was an intelligent and popular author - in a time where intelligence wasn't just used to sell things - and he produced a warning about how technology and politics could be used to enslave mankind which we've chosen to ignore. I'm not sure you even know what identity politics is.
They're not using their own drones. Perhaps NIH is not as deeply entrenched there as you like to think?
I'm just saying that in the UK you practically never get any sort of reference except one which states your state and end date, position, and sometimes the number of sick days. That's it; it's totally normal and because of this no-one reads anything into it; you'd look naive even asking the company if this were normal.
No such thing as a bad reference, at least in the UK. You'd just sue them for lying, resulting in an expensive court case which would highlight publicly other failings in the company.
Why are you even thinking about the person replacing you? Anyone replacing me will find comment free code with no history in version control. If they're lucky.
Or just don't bother with the domain name. Use the IP address.
This sort of bullshit is the reason i just can't justify buying more stuff, and more expensive stuff. I make do with an older laptop or phone, and don't buy top of the range ones because as far as i'm concerned there's no legal requirement the stuff will last more than 12 months, and i'm not paying Â£1000+ for a laptop to a year.
If I could be sure that I had 6 or 7 years where I could get any manufacturing/design faults fixed quickly for free I'd have no problem but I always get this feeling someone's laughing at me as soon as I click "buy".
