Nobody is going to talk about the number of children here? Nine kids? These guys are the ultra-rich, right? They can pop babies into this miserable world so easily? They can afford re-settling to a different country? I mean, people are so impoverished that they can't afford having one kid in this shitty world.

Or maybe they're just plain stupid?

People from a minority/dying culture, how do you feel about it?

There are many cultures around the world that are suppressed by majoritarianism. They have to face challenges like forced assimilation, language discrimination and refusal to acknowledgement of their unique identity. In fact, many cultures have been identified by UNESCO, that will soon cease to exist - either that they're...

Here's a list of all the vulnerable and extinct languages. I happen to be one of those minorities, so I was interested in hearing other's view on the same.

I'm a Tuluva, a minority group in the south of India. I am also a Tulu separatist for reasons mention here - I'm in agreement with most of them, but there are a few more reason I have this stance, including cultural appropriation and discrimination.

You can read about the recent efforts at digitization of my language in this article - although I've never met anyone who knows how to write. Maybe a few scholars are good at this? I tried to learn the abugida (the Indian equivalent of "alphabet"), but they're pretty hard for someone like me who's never learnt a Dravidian language before.

Since you've not mentioned them in the comments, is it okay for me to ask about your cultural identity?

Super key to toggle window management, start typing to search app, settings and files

Super + A key for app menu, start typing to search just like above

Recommended window per workspace: 2-4, move the rest of them to another workspace

Alt + Tab or Super + Tab to cycle window

TL:DR; they're the package managers of the future, and I shill for them, but they're still buggy in some areas.

Guix and Nix user here. For all I can shill about store-based file hierarchy, ephemeral environment isn't perfect yet in both of these apps, at least from a GUI application perspective. It's a bug that I've found in Nix, but that should also reflect in Guix. Basically, what's happening here is that due to some impurity in the environment, it uses libraries from the system instead, and apps may stop working. This is a very serious issue, and is directly related to what you're talking about. This problem hides itself when using GuixSD in Guix or NixOS in Nix, but in other foreign distro that have dated libraries, it is very much visible, and you'll be forced to use outdated channels.

velox_vulnus ,
@velox_vulnus@lemmy.ml avatar

No, that's a bug about leaky impurities in Nix. I've made comments with regards to that.

velox_vulnus ,
@velox_vulnus@lemmy.ml avatar

Yes. I was surprised how much I missed this after I repaired and installed a custom Pixel ROM on my device. The original file app is just not good.

Basically, you want to improve the security of Linux, by reducing the attack surface and adding authentication wherever possible? There's a bunch of practices involved - using a custom hardened kernel focused on security, as well as enabling strong firewall config and disk encryption. I've never tried hardening before, so I don't know if I'm missing anything.

Honestly, you could use OpenBSD here, as it comes hardened out of the box, and it seems be the preferred choice for a security-first computing. But if platform is a constraint, then you may try your luck with linux-hardened.

I'm also struggling with this a lot. I'm around 1.7 meters, and my weight is around 89 kilos. I know that BMI isn't the most accurate measurement, but a rough estimate of my health. I'm in the obese territory at a BMI of 31. Depression makes me want to binge-eat. I am also physically inactive, because I'm trying to learn software dev stuff, but I have poor attention span. My back is already aching at 23.

Konsole is pretty good. Very similar to XFCE and Mate terminal app. I don't see the benefit in using GPU accelerated terminal. Maybe for someone who uses modular desktop, it makes a lot of sense. Since I'm on GNOME, I use Tilix a lot.

This brings back really bad memories...and this is why I refuse to help others when it comes to IT stuff. The last thing I wanted to read was what I used to do in the past to gain others approval, and how it never worked.

I used to think that helping my other dumb grad mates with installing Linux made me look cool and I would be accepted. On the contrary, I looked like an idiot, now that I think of it. i became that weirdo support tech kid for the idiot professors, who could not tell the difference between Java and Javascript.

I only help my "internet" friends now. At least they don't treat you like shit.

Wiki for android packages

Another post made me wonder if there is some kind of wiki or website for android packages with descriptions that can/should be removed via adb.

Nothing much. Disillusioned with the world itself. Disappointed that the place I was born in matters a lot.

  • I hate that my teen years went to shit studying and rote-learning. No dating, no hanging out, no friends, nothing. Now I kinda want to go back to the "springtime of youth".

  • I've experienced a lifestyle of "gamble economics", if that makes sense. Gamble your saving for a business, if it fails, you're fucked, if it works, you earn little - that's how my dad used to earn and also lose most of the time. There is no concept of "saving". Being conditioned into that childhood, I am always paranoid. I can't sleep at night.

  • I thought that being an adult would be liberating. It's not. It's horrible. You're an "uncle" to every little kid in your early 20s. You're also a creep, if you act un-adult-ly. By default, there's a lot of assumptions about you. Surviving as an adult isn't easy - there's unspoken rules and skills that you need to have. Social interaction and high tolerance to rejection is one of them.

  • Contrary to popular beliefs, no one pities the mentally disadvantaged. You're a "weirdo" and "slow-thinker" in real life, you experience whispers and eyes peering at you, your weird way of walking and slouching is being laughed at. If you show your weakness, you're fucked up.

  • Schools are fucking stupid, they don't prepare you for adult life. I don't know how to do taxes, banking or any of that. I'm not even sure how to get assets of my deceased parents, in case of an unforeseen tragedy. Dad has also lent and borrowed soft loan (no interest) to others, there's no legal contract, it's all based on word-of-mouth and trust, and I don't even know I should be asking from, or giving money to.

  • I paid a lot for 4 years of degree. Education is expensive, obviously. I thought that getting a degree = automatic job safety. Turns out it was all bullshit. It's a cash-grab scheme.

  • Nothing they teach you in university matters, it's all outdated bullshit and niche stuff, you're not going to work on that, tier-1 college students will gain access to them. Real, accessible job is shitty, low-paying, replaceable and repetitive.

  • My parents went to a relative gathering for the first time. People kept asking them about jobs, and they blurted that I work at GitHub. He lied, because he was ashamed. I've simply participated in a stupid hackathon by GitHub, that's it. Never got a proper job after graduation. I felt like I was stripped naked and hanging onto a pole, with my limbs tied for everyone to see.

  • The recession is so bad, they're demanding that graduates pay their employer for internship. Haha, what a fucking joke, right? Check these stories out (Reddit link btw) 1 2.

  • Removing this one for privacy

  • Nothing to save, everything to slave. There's too many of us. Being a cog in a machinery is one thing, but being a spare cog made in excess hits different. The machinery demands that I am not needed.

The bigger joke here is the salary. ₹8000 (rounded to floor) INR per month. That's like $100 per month. Absolutely pathetic. And why do I know it is months? Because I'm pretty sure Amazon India pays ₹80,000 per month for their internship, which is about ₹10LPA.

    This can't be taken seriously.

    GuixSD in tier-3? It uses the same tech as NixOS - store-based hierarchy, and functional, transactional package manager. The only thing that's different is the language - Guile Scheme is functional, acts as a convenient way for REPL as well as debugging the system, and eliminates additional scripting dependencies, while also being great for meta-programming. One language to rule them all. And yes, uses Shepherd instead of systemd. Want more GNU in your GNU/Linux? Guix is the thing. You can also probably boot using Hurd, but I've not tried that out.

    I will not complain about the rest of them because I've not used them well enough. But I know that this tier-list is just bad. ClearLinux has a really good package manager - perhaps, the fastest of them all. And the rest of them are well, based on a root distro, and good for their specific use-case. Debian and Arch is also used for testing alternative non-Linux kernels. Alpine offers musl C instead of libc and Busybox instead of GNU coreutils+/-binutils.

    In a country, that does not have any laws to safeguard labour's rights, employees trample on them like bugs. Human workers are paid shitty wages by IT sweatshop. That's what this is supposed to be about. This isn't about participating on Reddit, but more about a story to read, out of the countless many. It's laughable that you found something else to complain about. I would gladly copy and paste the content of the post as plaintext if that really bugs you.

    velox_vulnus OP ,
    @velox_vulnus@lemmy.ml avatar

    IT work in India is what used to be considered as a high-end job. You know, the elites. To the people who have crossed this economic barrier, they failed to see a systemic problem, and rather attributed this success to their hustle mindset. People saw an opportunity to get out of poverty - therefore, there's a influx of engineers and doctors in India.

    In the perspective of these students, unions are also associated with words like rustic, bumpkin and wage worker. They fail to see how it can protect their self-interest, as they want to association with it, owing to how their parents have suffered being unskilled and uneducated. Add to it the lack of protection of labor laws in India, and the refusal to embrace the union culture, this exploitation slowly crept from "lowly" jobs into what used to be considered as "office" jobs. And after years of toiling, working our asses off, paying huge loans, where do we end up? Jobless, treated like shit, mocked in other parts of the world as incompetent.

    I am merely sharing the culture of unionization, and it's failure to attract the youth of India. We are blamed for being "unskilled" - is it not corporate greed, that simply refuses to train them? That justification is what allows them to pay us less The "exceptional" workers come from rich families - they have access to resources, like books, computers, or other privileges that most of us do not have. I'm sharing the story of a fellow software engineer. In this crisis of recession, 45% of us youths are jobless. The few that have a job, they're "threatened" to be thankful to their employer. Therefore in my view, this post should deserve it's place here.

    velox_vulnus OP ,
    @velox_vulnus@lemmy.ml avatar

    No. More or less a rambling on the failure of union to thrive in an ecosystem that is averse to protection of labour rights.

    I've read that page, but that reasoning went over my head. Because I'm not able to understand their justification, hence I'm asking about it. And besides, there's no other low-level Vulkan alternative. Dropping support for it would be detrimental to the future of their distro, given how there's improvement over OpenGL with respect to performance.

    The mobile apps were garbage to begin with. So you were never going to go that deep in the first place. Even the basic copy-and-paste does not work. And it was damn slow.

    Nowadays, which band, musician or music give you goosebumps or made you cry?

    Trully question. I cannot be the only one who cries when listens music. I was the privellege to see my favourite artists live, but since last year, all lives I assisted on YouTube by Fred again.. , I cry . Has been my favourite musician since last year. Almost all songs, for me, are amazing and give me a bunch of emotions.

    I liked the Baahubali 1 and 2 OST so much. Especially the song with a dreamy sequence, called "Dhivara". M.M Keeravani is damn good. Final Fantasy OSTs are also good, so is the one by Genshin. Another good OST is "In your belief" which is the title song of Asura's Wrath, and the "Path of Duty" in Gran Blue, which is Katalina's theme.
