Just judging by the fact that the banner on his site stating that ``I continue to be the Chief GNUisance of the GNU Project. I do not intend to stop any time soon.'' has stayed up for as long as it has I believe this final stage of the coup failed.
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Taiwan, is in fact, People's Republic of China/Taiwan, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, People's Republic of China plus Taiwan. Taiwan is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning People's Republic of China system made useful by the People's Republic of China corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by Communist Party of China. Many computer users run a modified version of the People's Republic of China system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of People's Republic of China which is widely used today is often called “Taiwan”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the People's Republic of China system, developed by the People's Republic of China Project. There really is a Taiwan, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Taiwan is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Taiwan is normally used in combination with the People's Republic of China operating system: the whole system is basically People's Republic of China with Taiwan added, or People's Republic of China/Taiwan. All the so-called “Taiwan” distributions are really distributions of People's Republic of China/Taiwan.

Listening to an obscure radio station on a certain imageboard with a couple other listeners, several tabs open all with different topics, ranging from the NSFW and a blog on the feasibility of living in sewers to a live-stream of three painters critiquing their owm art. Fast food in one hand and my dick in the other, foot on the mouse and the other on the keyboard.

That mostly stems from the fact that at the very core there's an amazing game; a WW2 game that accurately depicts vehicle specs and physics, but it completely ruined by the fact Gaijin is quite possibly the worst dev in the history of ever and I include EA and Bethesda in that. I mean at least EA tries to be passive aggressive when it tells its players to fuck off, whereas Gaijin just straight up tells its players to Fuck off and when other players try and point out that there's a problem Gaijin says everyone is hallucinating and that there is no problem. Plus premiums, broken game, etc etc and the fact Gaijin refuses to do anything about any of these and doesn't have to because lol where else are you gonna play as an IS-3 that isn't WoT?
>>1603
researching something as basic as repairs and fire prevention is pissing me off so much
what is it meant to add to the gameplay to get toasted by a single shot? just make it an instant kill, who even gives a shit at that point
and rolling around with a broken off tank barrel and having to go inside one of the contested areas for repairs is absolutely ridiculous
that is adding nothing but frustration
>>1605
Welcome to Gaijin. That frustration is supposed to make you throw money at them in order to make the game """fun""", the frustration is just there in order to well frustrate you and you pay for it to not be there, typical whale hunting. Also did you see that stuff about the Maus? They managed to break the game so much that they removed it by their own admission because they were too lazy to balance it to the broken premiums that broke it in the first place, so instead of fixing the core issue they just removed the symptom. My bet is that by 2021 we will actually have less vehicles ingame than we do right now.

Holy shit fuck Gaijin.

Basically I want to buy a new phone. What's the best type to buy, one that won't spy on me and steal my information, something that's cheap, but has good quality. Something that isn't an android.
I hear Huaweii is linked to China or something, so is that any good?

okay, is their a privacy focused flip phone?

I'm not a aware of any opensource dumbphones for sale comrade. Even with a opensource dumbphone you're going to have tracking through triangulation/multilateration of cell tower signals. If you need a phone I'd suggest crafting your own Arduino phone, this way you can be certain that your phone won't be able to be converted into a listening device remotely as perhaps all phones are. On short notice there is doubtfully much difference between commonly sold models in terms of privacy.

(I'm avoiding posting here for my own productivity so I won't necessarily respond to further replies.)
You could get a dumb phone and keep it in a Faraday bag when you don't want to be tracked. You won't be able to receive calls with it in the bag and the feds can still hear/read your conversations. That's the only cheap option I'm aware of. The open source smart phone options likely protect actual conversations assuming you are doing them online with encryption.

This thread is about creating software to help workers organize.
As per >>602 and >>>/leftypol/51843
Current idea is to make software to organize unions, whatever that might be.

this could be a good idea for the IWW.
email to them, explain the idea, maybe they can give you some money to start the project.

You can set the country you want the news from at the bottom. You can put a map under it if that's what you want. For example, here's Switzerland:
https://www.labourstart.org/2013/country.php?country=Switzerland&langcode=en
They even have RSS so you have less scraping to do:
https://www.labourstart.org/lnwnews.shtml
There's really nothing stopping OP from doing what she wants other than being a useless ideaguy who's too lazy to do any research themselves. They had the perfect resource available to them but they chose to ignore it. I say they can go and fuck themselves.

If you actually think this matters and is a good answer, why are you bothered by someone bringing it up again so that other people could see the site?
If you're satisfied with labourstart good for you. This is a discussion board. This thread is for talking about developing tools to help organize labor. I bumped this thread because after the merge I wanted more people to see it. I included a post from /leftypol/ because I thought it might be useful for discussion to keep the topic going. Why are you here?

I bumped the thread to bump the thread, but I figured if I added something besides "bump" it would be more likely to get replies. I guess I was right, but not how I expected.

I didn't expect CK3 so soon. I assume the base game will be better planned around the release of DLC. Hopefully the intrigue, politics, and general RPG elements are better thought out. I'm guessing the game will be shallow and bare-bones on launch given the current trend with Paradox games.

I don't see what this has to do with my post.
>>1474
Because you were expressing hope for the politics and RPG elements in CK3, AKA the core elements of the game.....from paradox......in 2019(or whatever year CK3 comes out in). Poor soul.
>>1478
I said I hope for improvements, but then immediately made clear I expect a shallow game given the current trend with Paradox games.

This is the type of thread that you can write in every time you visit the site! You can do anything from use this as a personal log for your project, to sharing what you're hacking on at the moment, to critique something some else did in the thread, or request help with a bug you're struggling with. I'm looking forward to hearing what you guys are up to!

I made a bit of progress on this project. I've got a working OpenGL ES2 context using libdrm, and I've rendered a blue screen to it. The program is mostly copied from various tutorials all be it with some stylistic changes and offensive programming. I've found a few blogs and some official documentation which should let me improve on it more. I plan on doing some literate programming to improve my own comprehension. Do any of you have any suggested tools for this? I've found noweb and CWEB, but I've also seen a number of modern takes on the idea in my brief search.

Also I wrote a little partially broken responsive menu for a imageboard over at >>953, it's been awhile since I've written any CSS.
>>959
I forgot to post a update yesterday, I made a little progress with my literate programing venture using noweb, and wrote a "Red Yotsuba" theme for the imageboard menu I made the other day just cause.
