How to watch Youtube safely, Ernsts?
Hooktube has dropped their search feature, and I don't like using Youtube raw, because it analyzes my watched videos and pushes me "Recommended videos". Though, it doesn't mean that Hooktube didn't do that, but at least they didn't recommend me anything.
If there is some way to watch Youtube through browser aside watching Youtube in private mode windows or using youtube-dl, I'd highly appreciate it.

That's a good idea, and I'm already doing that, but sometimes I watch a few videos on some topic and suddenly half of my feed is full of it and it's ver tedious to get rid of.

Maybe I will just unsub everything I'm not totally interested in and mostly try to use the subscriptions page for watching

Also S-P-A-C-E since the last thread is on systemkontra

It's old news but apparently there's a planet thought to be made out of graphite and diamonds. I am old enough now that both the frontiers of the internet and this small blue world feel small to me, like the length of our yard and driveway once did, and my hunger only grows

I wonder what it would be like, if ever, for us to see the inconceivable gulf between stars as merely the same thing as a months long voyage between continents

I dunno I just wouldn't shit for a couple days or three days so what came out tended to be plumbing wreckage. I wouldn't mind having experienced any toilet that could just take a handful of cellphones or a shopping bag worth of burgers at that time though. Mainly you only see this high power shitwashers in public places like gas stations and Walmarts.

I mean, you don't see this in every American home
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXVHwfuVY1k althought that is roughly the mass of shits I've taken before. This is a pretty standard public toilet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1STPHDrBgs Obviously, you have higher power not just for higher volume, but the staff of such a place wants 100% assurance that no matter what was there before, it's gone for good.

Now as far as I know, Linux can update on the fly because it only runs a process with an actual hard copy of the data the process needs.

This means you pretty much never have to restart a GNU/Linux machine.
Why is not every other OS doing the same? It's embarrasing.

Is there a good reason not to do that or is it impossible to implement it into your OS even after a quazillion of updates (which you can count because they lock you out of your pc every time :DDDD)

I think this can be an OS - general, but please eggsblain.

Ahhh, WindowMaker, very cute, last time I ran it I got somehow confused with all the old desktop concepts..., then I thought having a vertical and a horizontal dock (or panel, or both) with a modern DE would be the recent interpretation of the NextStep desktop.

I also finally managed to install compton compositor today and so I can have transparent menus on xfce now :3

Now I just need to learn to configure Compton Blur effects to make xfce really modern.

Oh, it's good to see that this thread still lives!

Check out the guides at https://www.winehq.org/ (especially the
https://appdb.winehq.org/ appdb and wiki for specific advice). Another good
resource is the arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wine

If you have a specific problem, I can try to answer it, but it's best to first
get a basic overview over how you use it; then you'll be able to phrase most
questions in a way others will understand and help you.

In other news, I've recently re-discovered that I had set up qutebrowser to
spawn an nvim instance for writing into text fields (such as this post). Feels
incredibly good and has motivated me to write more on Ernstchan again. It's
like the difference between a great pencil and a shitty IKEA pen.

Dumb unambitious fuckers with no lives looking for a distraction to laugh and "kill time" or an identity to latch onto while their peers are outside enjoying the outdoors, making bucks and sleeping with their 3 girlfriends. Times are good for those with ambitions because there's a big surplus of women, a growing portion of young males are too busy with digital life to bother with girls, and years later in their 20s later they will suddenly get the no-gf feels and complain about unfairness in the dating game.

One day you reach a point where you've had it, every day is painful but dull, everything around you is stale and repetitive. You try to spice up your fun buying stuff but every game, every song, every movie seems like you've seen it before. You get tired of that kind of entertainment, you want more. Where did it all go wrong, you had fears and excuses when you were younger. You still have them out of habit, well you're sick of all that too. And so self-improvement begins.

We have a dedicated thread for movies, series and short films but not about documentaries and i think they deserve one.

If we happen to already have one and i just missed it or the moderation thinks this fits in another thread, pls just delete.

I start with this

It pretty much follows a guy who is buying a wife.

Discovered a very interesting thing - Dos box game launcher. Really neat thing. Easy launcher for dosbox, you can make a separate profile for each game and for each game it has his own dosbox parameters, also listed in very easy menu instead of just edit ssetings.cfg
You can also have multiple dosbox installations and hell lot of ther options, like transfer game info and cover art directly dom mobygames by one click. A very interesting alternative to buying games on gog honestely.

So next TOS movies... I remember I liked them back when was younger. Cinemotagraphic stories, cool events, kirk, spock, mccoy, all guys you like doing coll adventures across the galaxy, and 2-3-4 movies even continue each other, what and adventure! However nowdays from this persperctive there a more of dissapointment in therms of be star trek. A lot of things there was made itentionally more holywood-y and more ground level than high style of star trek. This movies become more like "a star wars based on old 60s tv series" than star trek.

You see, in first movie, it was like evolution of star trek - evolution in what it was meant to be. Space Oddysey-style adventure with a lot of patience, moral story, emotions and same time actual aiming on future, technology and unknown things in space perfectly match what star trek should me. There people explorers of stragne things. They more high mentaly and moraly than we, modern humands and you can clear see it. And in all things - decorations, special effects, uniforms you see that this share and evolves ideas of TOS to more mature and advanced level. Something that Roddenberry failed to do in original mosty due to lack of practical experience and budget.

2-6 movies are different. They in many ways like just OH SPACE ADVENTURE IN FUTURE, HERE WE HAVE LASORS, HERE RANDOM LOCATIONS, AND SOMETHING HAPPENING, HERE SOME FAMILIAR CHARACTERS FROM PAST. From big picture - like most of them just repeat most poular blockbuster plots and scheme of creaction to little details.
On big picture you see - battle against cool han boom boom, battle against klingons, adventure of cool team of guys against rules, cool time travel, 6 movie even sometimes feels more like JJ Abrams movie than star trek since it just jump across locations, "hard" plot, action, and all this tihngs.

At in the end - yeas, TNG at first in many ways just re-branded Phase-II. It use hell lot of characters, concepts, even some plots of episodes directly from Phase II. But same way as movie, this also not a complete phase II - it is in early stages much more cheap, and inserted different ideas, or altered them. Like conflict that Decker's father was a guy commander from TOS doomsday machine episode (I think you remember who I metion) and there a conflict with Kirk about this, was replaced that Picard and father of weasley crusher, for example.

And more series go - more it was clear that TNG become it's own thing. They abadoned hell lot of ideas and concepts from early TNG that was donated from Phase-II - overall high moral tone - they lowervered level of moral a little bit, they not used a separation of main section and sauser almost, uniforms was re-designer from mix of TOS and TMP to somthing more regular in therms of materials and thicness, plots changed overall, even idea of that klingon empire was defeated and assimilated which was metioned once in one of the most early episodes was qulicky abadoned and retconed.

This why I like early TNG more nowdays - I see it like lost bits of Phase II. I know that my ideal Phase II has no chances to become a real thing - but I still deam of what if, star trek had a TV series in 70s in style and with budget of TMP, without re-appearing and more and more old TOS actos (well kirk may appear sometimes as admiral. Or he can be captian and skotty engeneer, but cleary spock and some others there not entierly fit), but something really new and in style of psce oddysey, with most high 70s science fiction narrative and feel.

>compare to them this guys from 6th movie is not federation, this is pre-hisoric apes from XX centuary.
Moments like this always destroy Hollywood movies. No matter what time period or culture, characters are written as if they are 20th century Americans. The video of Picard is exactly right. You can't have a show with advanced technologies without also presenting characters who demonstrate how that technology has impacted culture and behavior. That is the hardest thing to get right in science fiction.
>even idea of that klingon empire was defeated and assimilated which was metioned once in one of the most early episodes was qulicky abadoned and retconed.
They got some of their best stories by exploring Klingon culture. I think the most honest depiction of both the Federation and the Klingon Empire would be where they were in an unstable peace. That's kind of what they did in TNG. The truce was a big part of the lore, but it was more believable because the two sides came into conflict from time to time.

I don't say TNG is bad, I say that it become a little bit more grounded compare to original idea of making really NEXT generation, compare to which even Motion picture federation and technologies be pre-hestoric.

That's not the same at all. Nobody breaks the legs of the livestock and then knocks them out. In fact the farms get audited for animal welfare just as hard as the plant does, by the same people and if they fail, not only are they given massive fines, but they love their livelihood because nobody is going to buy from a farm that fails an audit, and the conditions are pretty stringent including and not limited to having adequate shelter and limiting the livestock to pasture ratio.

Then once they reach the plant, they're kept in similar conditions in the yards. The holding paddocks are actually very well maintained, the ones I've been around even had hedgerows for the sheep to get out of the wind in (an optional feature too). Then they go to processing yards where they follow the judas sheep inside under no coercion where they're stunned and killed as quickly as humanly possible and that is instantaneously if halal doesn't need to be observed. If it is observed then a reputable plant uses bigger stunners that keep the animal under while they die. Using your mob analogy, it'd be someone putting you on a long morphine drip so you're out cold while the nastiness happens and stay out cold, with the difference being that you don't wake up to deal with the broken legs. Also, don't try and act like you weren't laying judgment on the people involved with your 'they know it's wrong' theory. It's also internationally recognised that livestock are sentient (not sapient, people get them mixed up a lot) and thus measures must be taken with the assumption that the animal is self-aware and has a limited ability to comprehend its environment. Seeing something as not having the same rights as sapient (human-like) life doesn't mean that you think it has no rights. We're not the callous barbarians you make us out to be.

Implied contract, no. A contract would require some exchange of services. Feeling of betrayal, yes. The farmer who raised you from a child, who spoke to you with kind words and gave you medicine when you were sick, suddenly showing that all his kindness was a lie and he never felt anything towards you but contempt.
