Polish Politics, far right catholic
We have Saint Marys Radio "Radio Maryja", which is a church station that is gathering support for current regime (sometimes they stop doing it, but then they get some money from the government and they start again --- witnessed such thing on my own eyes).
So here is a bishop that teaches kids about merits of new social programmes introduced by the current ruling party:
i've been thinking a lot recently about the idea of virtual conferences. i know this isn't a new idea, but i'm wondering how popular it might be to host a virtual conference where all the content is created as videos beforehand, those videos are then released as part of a schedule during the conference with time for some form of q&a with the presenter after each one.
anybody got good links to virtual conference stuff?
how might i gauge interest in a virtual conf peertube instance?
Poland, nationalism ww2
Nationalists (or facists) would say that #Poland was attacked in World War 2 by (choose from the list below):
* Communists (of course S in NSDAP stands for Socialism)
* German nation & Russian Nation
What they omit is that we were rather attacked by two nationalistic regimes (N stands for National). Soviet Russia was somwhat cosmopolitan, but in practice being a Russian in Poland was somewhat a priveledged position too.
uspol, ww2, nazis, poland
Today in #Poland, while commemorating the beginning of the Second World War, Mike Pe(na)nce basically blamed the atrocities of WWII on "godlessness" and "the scourge of communism".
Lest we forget: Nazi Wehrmacht had "Gott mit uns" on their belts. And IBM was providing computing machines needed to manage the Holocaust.
Not saying stalinist totalitarianism was not evil. But September 1 in Poland is neither the time nor the place for that sort of whataboutism.
@codesections Yes, PGP is a hot mess. It’s historically important. We owe Phil Z our gratitude for getting a secure communication tool into people’s hands. Also, the PGP manual is still worth reading to this day.
In addition to the other problems you listed, PGP is way to hard to use. Even the #infosec wonks I know don’t bother using PGP. There’s no way we can expect Joe and Sally Citizen to use it.
On July 1, 1943 Willem was executed by Nazis for bombing a Dutch public records office preventing the nazis from identifying a huge number of Dutch Jews.
His last words were "Let it be known that homosexuals are not cowards."
Eternal love and respect. 🖤🏴🗡
I'm doing some algorithmic brain teasers from: "Cracking the Coding Interview" (mostly to stay sharp).
And results I'm getting might not be what is intended.
Example: "You are given two sorted Arrays A and B, merge them to a sorted array".
Solution: "sort(A + B)"
Explanation: Python (and Java) uses timsort algorithm that explicitly handles almost sorted arrays, and arrays consisting of sorted runs.
Actually it seams that this is solution is better than O(n log n) and worse than O(n).
One man developement team from Poland. Mostly I do python stuff.
