On my ~5 year old mid-range computer (& my ~1 year old mid-range computer), I need to use the mobile versions of twitter & facebook because loading the desktop version of twitter literally hangs my web browser for twenty minutes.

I need to kill and restart slack every week or two, because it accumulates all available ram and starts to eat into my swap space. (I only use slack at all because I need to for work.)

and that isn't really a dig on Linus' technical skills, it is just merely an observation that if your job involves leading a FOSS community, his performance would be deemed unacceptable in many cases these days.

that is a good thing.

@GreenandBlack I think there's a deeper problem to the security theatre.

We've bred a culture where people think it's ok to do anything they like unless someone's watching them. If someone's watching, people are more likely to behave. And that attitude is used to justify putting cameras everywhere. And, to a limited extent, maybe it has some effect.

But instead, we should be teaching kids (and adults FFS) that some things are still wrong no matter who's watching.

This security theatre inherently assumes guilt until proof of innocence. These wannabe soldiers assume they're here for my protection, but the fact they exist there assumes the possibility of a guilty subject. I couldn't call the police to tell them to stop terrorising us with the presence of literal assault weapons, I have no choice in the matter of whether or not they should be there. And were I to speak up, they could then assume my guilt. Using the threat of terrorism, to justify terrorism.

@ente it alternatively could be "you is what you knows, kids." which is good advice.

Actually now that I think about it, it's friday and people normally do this follower friday thing.
