I think it's important to have a Free alternative, or people that want to take advantage of this kind of technology will have no options.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.
Which is your primary browser on your computer?
Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Facebook – 419+ million phone numbers found online:
– each record contained a unique Facebook ID; some records listed the user's name, gender, and location by country
– Facebook: "This data set is old and appears to have information obtained before we made changes last year to remove people’s ability to find others using their phone numbers"

Happy 2nd of #SeaTember!
Do you think people in the fishing industry would agree that their justifications for hurting others are reasonable if that same reasoning was used to hurt THEM?
We're posting every day this month on the theme of "SeaTember"; i.e. all the ocean related topics. See the http://YourVeganFallacyIs.com site for more vegan-related fallacies and their responses.
My gf's learning html. Nobody told her that vim's a strange tool for genius programmers, so I just told her it was a normal tool, showed her insert and escape, then let her get on with it.
Half an hour later, I showed her another vim command.
Someone with almost zero education, who can't type properly, is programming in vim because nobody told her it was difficult. I know people who can program in Haskell who aren't sure if they can do vim.

I wouldn't put much confidence in conclusions like these yet, but it's something many of us have suspected for some time: that latitude (ie, climate) influences psychological and social traits.
Hydroponic cucumber! (And tomatoes/cherry tomatoes behind). We don't really know what we're doing but it seems to work.
I really miss #chestnuts. It's nearly impossible to find in Sweden.
I've been watching #velomobile videos and now I want one
No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.
You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

I am using a visualization software that keeps using more and more memory as I load more data. I have 16 GB of RAM but there is more data than this.
I have increased vm.min_free_kbytes to 480000 but my machine keeps freezing if the memory is allocated slowly enough and the program is never killed.
What should I do? On top of being very annoying, it sounds like a severe security issue if any user can completely freeze the machine. It becomes too unresponsive to even connect to ssh.
Into science/technology/some math. I think what really matters is reducing suffering for all sentient beings.
