Except many like mine don't have that option. The best they have is "optimized" charging that tries to only hit full when you go to unplug it.

areyouevenreal OP ,

Yep, installed my first Linus Distro in primary school at about 11 yo. Now I am 23.

In all seriousness while I think FreeBSD and GhostBSD are very cool, and have some interesting server applications they do have some annoying limitations. It's not really their fault either, it sucks being the 4th most common platform/kernel/whatever. The FreeBSD people seem less uptight about working with proprietary software as it's not the same kind of Open Source Linux is because it's not copyleft. So you can use their code wherever even in closed source products. They include things like Nvidia drivers straight in their repos.

As for what makes them different/interesting: Linux is very capable but also kind of over engineered, confusing, and somewhat jank. BSDs are generally more simple. You would think this makes them less capable but aside from software support they often have more useful features. BSDs had Jails before Containers where supported properly on Linux.

BSD is almost what Linux is to Windows: faster, more stable, less annoying, and with a fraction of the users, hardware and software support. It's also a bit more complex to do certain things out of the box - though GhostBSD does give you a GUI and decent installer.

Also BTRFS on Linux feels like this:

Child: "Can we have ZFS?"

Mother: "We have ZFS at home."

ZFS at home: BTRFS

Like it's good that it exists, a lot better than other OSes had for a while, but it just doesn't compare to the stability and performance of the original. There are some areas where it's a bit more flexible and that can be useful, but generally it's just not as good. Pretty much Linux, then Apple, then Microsoft all tried copying ZFS, only worse. Heck it actually came from Sun Microsystems, then got Open Sourced allowing the FreeBSD people among others to port it to their system. Linux now has BCacheFS which might be even better but it's too early to tell.

Sorry for the long response. Thought I would explain some stuff while I am here.

areyouevenreal OP ,

Glad you enjoyed. I would give one of the BSDs a go. NomadBSD is a good option to try out as it's designed as a persistent live system that runs from a USB drive. Let me know if you have any questions, though I am far from an expert on this yet.

areyouevenreal OP ,

I tried that method. It's seriously borked if you ever want transcoding to work. Jellyfin has a customized version of ffmpeg they used that just dosen't exist on FreeBSD to the best of my knowledge. You can maybe make it work with the FreeBSD version but it would be an ugly hack.

areyouevenreal ,

Why has one increase more than the other? Is there a specific driving force?

areyouevenreal ,

Okay this is kinda backwards. Alcohol is worse than nicotine. Nicotine withdrawal doesn't cause seizures or death. Nicotine is less destructive to an addict than alcohol is, although it's more addictive overall.

While cannabis and psychedelics should be legalized and can help many people they aren't without risks. They can cause temporary psychosis and permanent sensory abnormalities/minor hallucinations. In some cases they can trigger diseases like schizophrenia. It's all dependent on how your brain is wired and what happens when you are tripping/high.

There was actually an off-duty airline pilot that nearly caused a major accident when traveling in the cockpit jump seat after taking mushrooms a few days before hand. He jumped up atns tried to shut off the engines, and very nearly succeeded. There is a great mentor pilot video on it if you can find it. It's a great example of what can go wrong with psychedelic drugs. That man ended up in jail btw.

areyouevenreal ,

A dead one? Maybe you mean Bill Gates?

areyouevenreal ,

I wasn't saying bill gates was dead. I was asking if the only good billionaire was a dead billionaire. I was then suggesting you might believe Bill Gates is the one good billionaire. They were separate possible answers I was trying to think of.

areyouevenreal ,

Do they promote crypto as a solution to world problems? If not how are they a crypto fash.?

areyouevenreal ,

Either way I suspect Linus himself is only a small component of the problem if it exists

It's easy for employees to do stuff you don't know about.

Of course he is still a capitalist and is as guilty as any other "well behaved" capitalist.

areyouevenreal ,

That's a good point to be fair. I think they have an external team now thankfully.

areyouevenreal ,

Did she say who called her that or who she took her complaints to? Linus Media Group is a fairly large company these days. We also don't know yet how much of what she said is actually true.

areyouevenreal ,

Honestly don't bother. Ublock is better at blocking ads. Pihole is for devices on your network that can't use conventional ad blockers and is less effective.

areyouevenreal ,

Or you could just switch DHCP over to the Pi-hole. Most ISP routers support turning off DHCP even if you can't change their DNS.

areyouevenreal ,

Where is this person a mod? Is it a community known for TERFs?

(Constructively) What is your least favorite distro & why?

I’ve been distrohopping for a while now, and eventually I landed on Arch. Part of the reason I have stuck with it is I think I had a balanced introduction, since I was exposed to both praise and criticism. We often discuss our favorite distros, but I think it’s equally important to talk about the ones that didn’t quite hit...

areyouevenreal ,

What are your reasons? This is a fairly broad amount of things to hate.

areyouevenreal ,

Disabling and enabling a network adapter using a GUI is trivial on most Linux desktops. So not helping Microsoft's case.

areyouevenreal ,

Have you heard of revolution?

areyouevenreal ,

Destitution? Definitely heading that way has been getting progressively worse for the last several years at least. Critical mass? Not yet previous generations are weak and people are idiots. I think radical thought is increasing especially among the younger generations.

areyouevenreal ,

What does that even mean?

areyouevenreal ,

Even marxists don't simplify the classes as much as that diagram suggests. It's missing peasants, artisans and the petty bourgeois. It's also never been as simple as capitalist vs working class. Capitalists regularly fight amongst themselves as do the working class. This whole idea of class struggle being the only struggle is so oversimplified it's kinda silly.

I don't think it's honest to frame it in generational language either btw. Though that is a component of it.

areyouevenreal , (edited )

Seriously, what end could splitting hairs over "peasants" or "artisans" possibly serve (And are those hundreds of years old terms even relevant in our world with our technology?)? Even the petit bourgeois is oppressed by the owning class, the system convincing them that a "middle class" exists is part of the fucking con, and the whole fucking point is to see how irrelevant these semantics are and fucking unite so that we can have a better society for everyone.. 🤦‍♀️

You haven't read marxist or anarchist theories very well if this is what you think.

Artisans are any one man business. They don't have employers to exploit them that's why they are an important class in marxist analysis.

Petty bourgeois aren't middle class necessarily; it refers to small business owners. They are exploiters of the workers beneath them while being exploited by others. Small time land lords would be petit bourgeois for example. These people are in essence part of the "owner class" because they own a business or building.

Peasants are not considered to be a revolutionary class because they aren't the proletariat. Not a problem in western societies but some countries still have peasants.

all of the systemic barriers we face (racism, sexism, ableism, querrphobia, and so on) exist to serve capitalism and those who benefit from it.

You don't think racism affects business owners or landlords? Or sexism? Or anything else?

This is the kind of assertion given without evidence that made me leave marxists behind. I am sick to death of people claiming all these problems are because of capitalism. If anything capitalism has helped address some of these issues like sexism because women not working is bad for the system. In fact not fully utilizing people because of prejudice in general is bad for capitalism which is all about efficiency and exploitation.

Edit: also policy regarding peasants is one area where marxism and anarchism differ significantly from what little I understand of anarchism.

areyouevenreal ,

Why are all the marxists coming out of the wood work? Y'all can't run a society for shit. Why are you still here and existing?

China was one of your experiments that went wrong. Go and build a working model for a socialist or communist society and I might listen. Until then you have nothing to add. Anarchists had better luck than you guys and you killed them for it.

areyouevenreal ,

Which country do you live in? I live in the UK so unless you are here it's mostly irrelevant what you vote for.

areyouevenreal ,

So I will take it you don't live here and I don't need your vote.

areyouevenreal , (edited )

You're the one who asked if I needed your vote lmao. I don't. You're just annoyed you don't have any leverage over me.

areyouevenreal ,

So are you a marxist or something else?

areyouevenreal ,

You are probably the first libertarian marxist I have seen. It's an idea I played around with at one point.

areyouevenreal ,

I live in the UK and you still get ID checks for many places. It's not as lax as you make out, although it definitely depends on the specific establishment you are talking about.

areyouevenreal ,

You have no idea. For a society to be communist it has to have no state. Marxist states like the USSR or Cuba aspire to be communist one day in the future but believe you need a stage of state socialism first to get there without capitalism taking over again. How close they actually get to socialism is debatable. This is different to anarchists who want the state abolished after the revolution.

Socialism is not compatible with capitalism. Any communist society is socialist by definition, but not every socialist society is communist by necessity. Socialism is compatible with market economy where communism is not.

Under the definition of socialism the working class must own and control the means of production. Outside of that requirement you can have a range of different economic systems which may or may not involve a state, money, or markets. Socialist market economy has markets and possibly a state but where each worker owns a share of the company and votes in company leaders and/or decisions.

I think lemmygrad.ml is known for brigading. As for actual hate speech I think the instance this article is talking about is transphobic based on what others have said in this comment section.

areyouevenreal ,

Even if they aren’t on lemmy you can bet they follow some anti-capitalist group somewhere, whether it be on reddit or mastodon or somewhere else. It’s definitely a strategy for some rich people to keep an eye on their enemies and what the population say about them

areyouevenreal ,

No offense but lemmy has its own brain rot and echo chambers. Not being exposed to the majority of the public reinforces a lot of this. You’re just exchanging one kind of circlejerk for another.

areyouevenreal ,

Missing the fact Open Source software is generally more secure because more people are looking at the code. You don’t need to see the source to find a vulnerability, you do need it to patch one properly though.

Humans became human through learning to cook in general. Not just learning to cook meat. Cooking has a large impact on the digestibility of vegetables, not just meat.

If you wanted to be true to nature you would probably be eating very different meats to the ones you eat now. Things that grow locally like mammoth, buffalo, dogs, marmots, rats, even insects. Not imported animals like cows. You also wouldn’t be eating meat as often because hunting isn’t that reliable compared to foraging or harvesting crops. Modern agricultural plants don’t exist so you have to deal with much smaller and less nutritious wild plants and vegetables.

I should point out I am not a vegan or vegetarian. I simply find it annoying when people use nature arguments while not understanding what the nature actually is.

areyouevenreal ,

Meat isn’t something we started eating when we became humans. I am pretty sure chimpanzees eat animals, though I think it’s mainly insects. Our specific strategy for hunting might have something to do with us developing intelligence but that isn’t certain by any means.

Anyway lots of countries are not this meat centric as meat is more rare and expensive.

It is somewhat more difficult to have a perfect diet without meat. Then again having a healthy balanced diet is general is difficult no matter how many animal products you use.

I also think you missed the point of being vegan entirely. It’s to stop suffering, not because of nature or being healthy.

areyouevenreal ,

Very good chance your family is autistic especially if you have it which I am guessing you do given which community you are in. It’s genetic. It’s also very common for older generations to go undiagnosed.

areyouevenreal ,

I don’t which reality you are from but I don’t think society or many of the neurotypicals that inhabit it are actually functional in the reality I come from. To me the whole system is broken to varying degrees for everyone and is perpetuated by broken people. I know you have said before that you don’t think NTs are broken, I disagree. I think anyone who is complicit in our current world must be broken in some sense. We only accept the sometimes rather transparent flaws of NT people only because they are the majority.

Lots of accomodations that help ND people would also help some or all NTs as well. It’s the same as how adding lifts and ramps for disabled people also helps the elderly, or people who are moving goods on a trolley. NT people have off days too and I think they could use some leniancy. I also think that rather than try to create one method of education and socialising that works for everyone we should have different options available for different people. We should meet people where they are rather than trying to build a compromised system and bend people to fit that system. This is why I believe we should have a neurodivergent culture/subculture like we have for LGBTQ+ people with things like gay bars. I wouldn’t even be against setting up entire societies or countries for various oppressed groups including the neurodivergent, LGBTQ, and physically disabled the same way we setup Israel for Jews (only this time without committing genocide against Palestine). Unfortunately society just isn’t setup that way under Kyriarchy.

As for medication: ADHD drugs are essentially performance enhancers. I am a druggie at heart so I have no issue with people NT or ND doing drugs to increase their performance or for recreation. I do have a problem with people being coerced into doing drugs just because it makes them behave more like an average or “normal” person.

areyouevenreal , (edited )

See I have a rather different experience because I have never had meds. I still managed to get a master degree and apply for jobs. The issue I have in my life is that despite applying for many jobs (okay probably less than a more motivated person) I still don’t get anything. Why? I don’t know. I doubt it’s something I have done given I don’t even get replies to most of them, so it’s not like I have interview problems. In this case it’s unrealistic expectations put upon graduates looking for jobs especially with regards to experience. How can you have 1+years of industry experience when you have only just graduated and no one is willing to take a chance? I think others get around this by applying very early while still in University. You could argue that my neurodivergence prevented me from applying while busy doing my dissertation, but I don’t think every NT person could have done that either. The bigger issue is that this barrier exists in the first place when it something everone has to clear. Sorry for the rant, it’s been a very frustrating time.

I can relate to the understanding of feeling broken and I am glad you have something that helps at least a little bit. The issue is I don’t think medication alone is the anwser, if it was you would already have a job. I think if a society wants you to be productive it needs to organize itself and give you work suitable for you’re talents rather than expecting people to find work that may not even be avalible. I think labour needs to be more organised to better take advantage of the skills of different people.

I generally think that the same medications that allow ADHD people to be more productive also helps NT people be more productive. That’s why college students and the army use these medications. It’s the same effect just in a different context. I am aware there are people that stimulants do impact differently, but from my understanding it’s more about calming them down rather than giving them energy and executive funtion to get through various tasks. I could be very wrong here as I don’t have the experience as I have never been prescibred psychiatric medications. What I know about these things is through similar recreational substances or through listening to others

Edit: also I should point out that some of the things I tried recreationally also ended up improving my productivity and we’re later used for that perpose. Kratom in particular comes to mind. You may find it helpful though it has more risks than some people want to acknowledge. In the vain of treating symptoms MDMA has been tested for treating social anxiety in autistic people and I think it may have heled me understand other people a bit better but it’s kind of hard to tell because lots of things were changing for me in that time of my life.

areyouevenreal ,

I was looking for coding, sysadmin, or even cyber security and still didn’t get anything. I am now looking more broadly into technician roles and computer repair as I think they might be easier to apply to. I have already cast the net wider than most yet people have told me to look more broadly (as if I didn’t already do that lol). I am glad to here from someone I can actually relate to. I am even looking at jobs in the brewing industry as I have a special interest/hyperfixation in that area.

areyouevenreal ,

How can a myth be backed up by lots of research? I am confused what you mean here.

I am also not claiming that they have the exact same effect on all people. Rather that they do improve productivity in many circumstances for both groups of people (NT and ND). Also neurodivergent people are not a single block and neither are neurotypicals. Not all ADHD or autistic people will respond the same way to stimulants. Not even one the same person is effected the same way by the same drug every single time. One of the lessons taught in the psychonaut community is that drugs can effect you differently depending on many factors including you’re mindset, the dosage, the exact substance, and what condition you’re body is in (set and setting is the simplified version of this). I have experienced the stimulant inversion you are talking about but it’s not very consistent. It’s basically tossing a coin what effect I will have for a certain stimulant every time I take it; this is part of why I don’t do that particular substance often. It could also be a dosage dependant phenomena.

areyouevenreal ,

While that sort of makes sense I think it’s bad you have to do that. This is what I mean when I say society is broken, nobody should have to depend on nepotism or networking just to find suitable employment. It’s one of my major bug bears with capitalism.

areyouevenreal ,

I have looked at a couple Russell Barkley videos. I haven’t found anything on how ADHD people respond differently to stimulants than people of any other neurotype. Could you point me in the right direction?
