The free market is the ultimate equalizer: it does not care if you grew up poor, the color of your skin, or by what name you call God.

is too addicted to adrenaline at the expense of the scene even making sense.

@profoundlynerdy @uliwitness I do not, unfortunately. I wonder if you've heard of PoC||GTFO, though, which if you like that sort of thing should be right up your alley: https://www.alchemistowl.org/pocorgtfo/ . I think most people have heard of it, so perhaps you have as well, but if you have not, it is amazing. The content is excellent, but also all of the files are polyglots (they are all both ZIP and PDF, several of the early ones are ZIPs that contain the previous issues, some of them are qemu-bootable images, some are also Python programs that serve the contents of the file over HTTP, etc.)

@profoundlynerdy @uliwitness I wouldn't be surprised if some ^C worked. Some of the MS-DOS was done by people that preferred Unix conventions. This is interesting: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/larryosterman/2005/06/24/why-is-the-dos-path-character/

It looks like there was an option: http://www.easydos.com/break.html . I imagine FreeDOS would have something related to it, but it appears that Break-vs-Control-C was configurable via the command "BREAK", which you could also set in config.sys.

For those of you who how are you promoting your courses these days?

I'm most interested in the crowd but I'll take advice from all quarters. I'm not really the (guru) type, but I intend to start making some courses and seeing what happens.

I know it used to be that codes were *the* way to promote your course. I hear that approach is not so effective these days. Am I wrong?

So far, REAL ID-compliant documents aren’t as restrictive as the internal passports required to get anything done in Russia. But give it time..

@profoundlynerdy @Lonsiin123 It’s semi centralized imho, as Ripple control the UNL (unique node list) of what validators the servers should trust. Sure, admins can change what servers to use but rippled use the ripple.com UNL by default and most (everyone?) runs with that. But they can’t freeze assets nor create or destroy XRP. Technically, the community can decide to run their own UNL list and ditch Ripple if they misbehaved. *shrugs*

@Lonsiin123 I'm not certain how decentralized it is.

I'm not trolling, I just don't understand the decentralization mechanisms.

@profoundlynerdy @jeffalyanak diehard Amiga owner here.

You made the joke about "Politics" before I did.

You get to make as many amiga jokes as you want.

(And, well, I want a Falcon, because I've seen a souped up Falcon run the TBL Amiga demos and due to it's architecture, it is possible to do some of the effects faster (less RAM latency) so the result is... visible. And stunning.)

Syracuse police got a search warrant to compel doctors to probe a man's rectum against his will in a fruitless drug search. Then the hospital billed the guy $4,000 for it.
