Yes, it does correlate close to an inverse proportion.

Yes, Oglaf has some good SFW comics as well as good NSFW ones. But the official list of comics does not tag NSFW ones – instead, they are NSFW by default and the exceptions are marked “safe”. It is about 80% NSFW, which is way more than “sometimes”.

Not open source. Use:

  • Open Shell
    • brings a normal Start Menu back as well as an optional taskbar in Explorer
  • Explorer Patcher
    • revives Explorer’s “commented-out code”, bringing back functionality from previous Windows versions: optionally translucent taskbar without blur, seconds display in calendar popup, optionally the weather widget and many many more
  • CTT winutil
    • installs/updates various free programs for you with one click, one-stop-shop for all kinds of recommended debloat/freedom settings
  • MSEdge Redirect
    • self-explanatory: all Bing queries from within the OS apps go to your preferred search engine & default browser instead

I prefer if persistent, high-permission code running on my machine is FOSS, and support the devs if I see it’s useful

There are more ways to make Windows suck less, even open source ones: feddit.de/comment/7447632 Of course, pick whatever is best for you, but FOSS is ultimately safer (and free!).

It’s OK if it’s FOSS. Imagine if Adobe Acrobat was FOSS and PDF was an open standard - it would have double the features and 10 times less suck.

The body still needs feeding, though. Support open source developers!

I live in the Czech Republic and I did expect it to be worse than Poland, Hungary or France, but not by that much. I assume the terrible way communism scarred us and the rushed privatization, as well as opportunistic behavior (especially in Bohemia) have their ripple effects.

“Smart”watch app:

⌚ Herausdrehungseinstellungen

(Dial Settings)

Edit: It was actually called “Nastavení vytáčení” (Dialing Settings) in Czech, the closest German word is “Herausdrehung” but the correct translation is “Telefonnummerwählen” or something

Intermittent seeding: Does IPv6 using 6to4, 6in4 or 6rd via a tunnel broker help?

The problem: My download is fine but seeding is very slow and intermittent even for popular torrents. I think this could be improved using IPv6 via 6to4. 6in4 or 6rd, all of which are supported by my router, to discover more peers....

Please don’t say “MBit”, it makes my eyes hurt.

My internet plan tops out at 2 Mb/s upload so that wouldn’t nearly fill such a public tunnel broker’s bandwidth, and I would be glad for even half that, but right now I seed 500 GB of reasonably popular movie packs and the long-term average upload is a few kilobits per second, not worth spinning up the 10W HDD motor for. Yes, I expect some overhead with tunneling but not three orders of magnitude, and I need at least 100 kb/s to get a good ratio on those movie packs.

Byte is the 8x bigger one – longer word – capital B (but the word, unless shortened, is “byte”, not “Byte”),
bit is the 8x smaller one – shorter word – lowercase b.
There is a roughly 0.8% difference per order of magnitude between 1024-based binary prefixes (ki=kibi, Mi=mebi, Gi=gibi, often incorrectly written as k, M, G) and 1000-based metric prefixes (k=kilo, M=mega, G=giga) but these ballpark numbers are not affected.

Anyway, do you think it’s worth trying in terms of security against threats and law enforcement, or should I use a VPN on top?

It’s supposed to say “Mbit” or “Mb”. Capital B infers bytes. Incorrect capitalization is one of the most common mistakes when using the metric system. It may be popular but it becomes a problem when 1 B = 8 b, or when 1 MJ = 10⁹ mJ. By the way, common ad-hoc abbreviations like “kbps” as opposed to “kb/s” or “PSI” instead of “lbf/in²” also grind my gears, luckily most such mistakes only occur in imperial units.

When inconsequential, capitalization gets messed up all the time, and the mistakes are overlooked: everyone understands that a weight labeled “10 KG” has a mass of 10 kg, but it’s better to get used to good practice for when it does matter. Thankfully, the “M/m” mistake of 9 orders of magnitude is usually caught by humans before it gets out of hand: you wouldn’t order 1 mm³ of wood instead of 1 m³. Very few quantities span 9+ orders of magnitude, for instance 10mΩ and 10MΩ resistors exist quite commonly, and you can imagine one being mistaken for the other with people copying each other’s handwritten component list. However, I’d bet that the bit/byte dichotomy confuses hundreds of people every day so we better make that clear by not breaking rules.

BTW, the word is “megavolts”, not “MegaVolts” or any other capitalization, similarly “byte” is correct unless at the start of a sentence, with title case, or in German, and perhaps in words like “MByte”, which I discourage in favor of the full form or complete abbreviation.

Makes sense. I don’t think latency is a great issue when transferring large files, I would be more concerned about packet drop. (Unless latency is part of the reason the tracker thinks I’m too slow to bother requesting data from, which would explain why American-based trackers barely let me seed but local ones work great.) The overhead of TCP torrenting is about 3-4 % for me, and even if an IPv6 tunnel increases that to say 25 %, I will be able to use 80 % of my upload bandwidth for seeding, assuming IPv6 allows me to reach enough peers to request 1.6 Mb/s from me, which would be much higher than the current <1 %. My logic was that I could reach people that don’t have a publically reachable IPv4 port but an IPv6 one (because of IPv4 exhaustion of course), but now I understand that this is way less of an impact than I thought.

I know, I’m an electrical hobbyist. Most 10mΩ resistors (no space because it’s an adjective) are SMD because leads would introduce significant resistance that changes when bending. Unless the wire is the shunt, of course. They have large pads and are thick to accommodate the current and power dissipation because their main use is measuring current in the order of A.

Meanwhile, 10MΩ ones are usually THT and normal size, the occasional ones rated for multiple kilovolts or spikes of even higher voltage are longer to prevent arcing.

Let’s privatize hurricane and flood aid to them as a result. Maybe Disney will trickle down some of their wealth to the victims?
