    Mark Zuckerberg’s Manifesto Is a Blueprint for Destroying Journalism

    I have to get some work done, but since you seem like a reasonable guy who has yet to flip out and call me a racist nazi homophobe, I'll come back to this later. Have a good one.

    Mark Zuckerberg’s Manifesto Is a Blueprint for Destroying Journalism

    I believe there is a flaw in your thinking centered around absolutism. In the same way that Zuckerberg is not absolutely Marxist even though he has some totalitarian leanings like Marxism (in philosophy or practice is a separate argument), it is also so that Zuckerberg is not absolutely a...

    Mark Zuckerberg’s Manifesto Is a Blueprint for Destroying Journalism

    I didn't make the implication that Zuckerberg was a Marxist. Others did. What I did was imply to a poster that simply because Zuckerberg is a wealthy businessman does not make a 'safe' assumption that he does not have totalitarian leanings (some have said Marxist). Regardless of how he got...

    Ad-blocking Mistake, Blocking an Important Site

    Yes, I thought about that. Elements on the page could come from a different site. The only reason I go to this particular site is I have some items for sale there, and I've actually never had this blocker give me a problem before. It's been very effective in the past. I'm not sure why this has...

    Ad-blocking Mistake, Blocking an Important Site

    Okay, pinged the site, got the ip, changed host file and just in case I made sure I set browser permissions for everything ever at the site. The pages in question now partly load. That's better but something still not quite right, however, as far as the blocker is concerned, perhaps this thread...

    Ad-blocking Mistake, Blocking an Important Site

    Okay, I made a slight mistake. I updated my block list and accidentally told my computer to block certain pages on an important site. The site is an art site where I have some art supplies for sale. I'm not pressured for time because I can still use my tablet to do what I need to do, but it's...

    Russian Site-Blocking Chief: Kids Shouldn’t Use the Internet

    Oh Lord, I did see that, LOL. I thought... Secret Service gonna have a heart attack! Actually, I believe, statute-wise, they can choose not to allow that kind of thing. I believe I read somewhere they have the statutory authority to tell a sitting President, 'You ain't gonna do that.' The...

    Russian Site-Blocking Chief: Kids Shouldn’t Use the Internet

    Agreed. But remember, the government closest to the people is the most responsive. I can go talk to my mayor anytime I want. I know him. President Trump... not so much LOL

    Russian Site-Blocking Chief: Kids Shouldn’t Use the Internet

    I think we mostly agree. I don't mind the government partnering with parents on things like this... albeit I prefer the state and local governments to do this kind of thing for greater accountability close to home; I have concerns the government usurping parental authority, but controls are...

    Russian Site-Blocking Chief: Kids Shouldn’t Use the Internet

    Interesting topic. In the same way that television was an issue when I was a kid, the internet can be a problem today, but it's only a small part of the bigger picture. One of the things I've noticed is that with the overload of schoolwork these days, passive activities like surfing the internet...

    Can Netbooks Be Cool Again?

    The netbook tries to serve two needs... and I guess fails in both. Part of why the tablet cannot replace the laptop is shear practicality of dimensions. Some of us are old and need a screen we can see and a keyboard we can type on. The netbook keyboard is too small, and the screen is not...

    Mark Zuckerberg’s Manifesto Is a Blueprint for Destroying Journalism

    Inclusion of all is code for Democrats only need apply. There are a number of articles out there about how Facebook will be taking steps to handle things like 'hate speech' and 'fake news.' Hate speech by definition is speech, and is protected, albeit, the owners of Facebook have every right to...

    Crap Antivirus does work for me anymore now whats gonna protect Linux for me

    libpre is a Perl library file. You probably have a version of the file you are looking for but it is in a place where ClamAV can't find it or it is a different version than the one ClamAV is looking for. I don't know what distro you're using, but in mine, a symlink can fix either of the two...

    Twitter Is Cracking down on Politically Incorrect Language

    I have never believed it was possible to say anything worth hearing in 146 characters to begin with. Twitter plays to a diminished value of context and reason. There's very little there that isn't fully dependent on something else, an event in the news you must already be aware of, or an article...

    YouTube Killing 30-Second Unskippable Ads

    I have zero interest in the vast majority of ads I see. They claim to be trying to better target their ads based on your browsing, but it doesn't really seem to work. I did one site's click through deal and ended up with a couple search terms related to Linux software... the next thing I knew I...

    With Firefox self-destructing, what's the next best choice (for addon users)?

    I was wondering if anyone would suggest this. I'm using SeaMonkey Portable for my older linux rig and I think it performs very well. I don't know what the latest and greatest looks like because I chose the release that best matched the kernel of my OS (2.6.29.1) and the hardware of this laptop...
