GNU/TRUTH

So about the history of BSD, I have to say that the BSD projects have successfully covered up a lot of the History of their OS which is full of scandals and replaced it with one that causes a lot of people to look at BSD as being innocent.

It all started in 1974 when Bob Fabry, worker at the University of California purchased a copy of UNIX from bell labs to run their PDP-11. The Fabry and his colleges started modifying their copy and adding more software to it (that time, AT&T had not made the code proprietary). In 1977, Fabry’s grad student the infamous Bill Joy also started contributing to Berkeley’s copied of UNIX. Most of the people contributing believed that code should be free for others to modify and redistribute (effectively making it free software which is what the FSF foundation is pushing today). Bill Joy however believed software should be proprietary and that companies should be allowed to abuse their users and costumers. Joy went one step further by supporting the idea that companies should be able to take code from people who produce free software and make them proprietary to enslave users. Any true supporter of free software should recognize this as a hideous and disgusting though on the part of Bill Joy which a lot of people considered the most evil second only to Steve Jobs.

To make his idea come through, took the pieces of software contributed to Berkeley’s UNIX and removed their copyright and placed his own on it and a license he created to allow companies to free taken code and close it. The license would later be known as the BSD license. He then decided to release these software as a bundle add-on for UNIX called BDSM as he hopes that the bundle would become a complete set of software to be used as raw materials for proprietary software to enslave and mistreat users. However, Joy was forced to change the name of the bundle to BSD as Joy’s proposed name was to inappropriate. Joy would eventually be kicked out of Berkeley after his superiors released what he had done but not before Joy release his second version of BSD and brain washed others to his idea.

Bill Joy would eventually created his own evil corporation, Sun Microsystems which subjugated millions of innocent people before being destroyed by Linux and the remains acquired by Oracle (A GNU/Linux company).

Back at Berkeley, supporters of Bill Joy’s idea continued to work on BSD mainly by taking code from the GNU project lead by Richard Stallman, removing the GPL and replacing it with their BSD license. By that time, the GNU was almost a complete OS (it still lacked a kernel). This actually gave BSD the ability to developed a full OS with minimum effort (yes that’s right BSD owes GNU a lot. Without GNU, BSD would not have existed which is really sad as GNU was made to free people while BSD or more correctly BDSM was made to enslave pean ople).

In the late 1980s, Microsoft, Apple and other proprietary software companies noticed BSD as a source of free code to make proprietary software out of and wanted to gain more control over the project. So they initiated a plan to achieve that which culminated in the lawsuit between USL and UC Berkeley over BSD (The details of the plan are still as of this time not fully known yet). The lawsuit ended with USL the winner and UC Berkeley had to halt development of BSD and was forced to remove important pieces of code which resulted in an unmaintained OS which could not boot and required rare and obsolete hardware to run. This piece of junk was called 4.4BSD-lite. With BSD snatched from the hands of the owners at Berkeley, Apple took the code and assigned some of it’s developers to work on the it renaming it FreeBSD developed by an entity calling itself the FreeBSD project which is in really a subsidiary of Apple. Netapp and Microsoft were able to bribe a number of FreeBSD developers to split off and form NetBSD from which Netapp and Microsoft could take code from. OpenBSD was formed after one of the NetBSD developers (Theo de Raadt) had an affair with a FreeBSD developer and thus are kicked out.

As BSD progressed, it’s code became more and more fragmented as more proprietary companies control BSD. Each of these fragments to started to fighting with each other and within the projects themselves, various power struggles began making headlines once in a while.

And so that is the true history of BSD which goes to show how BSD is screwed up and controlled and owned by proprietary companies and no one should use them. Linux should be used instead, it is made for freedom and it is well designed and not politically motivated like the BSDs are.

We don't need Codes of Conduct, period

1 2020-03-05 02:34

Everything is already said in RFC 1855 (Netiquette Guidelines) When was it suddenly superseded?

Diversity? Respect? Inclusion? Sexual harassment?

Remember that the recipient is a human being whose culture,
language, and humor have different points of reference from your
own.  Remember that date formats, measurements, and idioms may
not travel well.   Be especially careful with sarcasm.
There are Newsgroups and Mailing Lists which discuss topics
of  wide varieties of interests.  These represent a diversity of
lifestyles, religions, and cultures.  Posting articles or sending
messages to a group whose point of view is offensive to you
simply to tell them they are offensive is not acceptable.
Sexually and racially harassing messages may also have legal
implications.  There is software available to filter items
you might find objectionable.
Since the Internet spans the globe, remember that Information
Services might reflect culture and life-style markedly different
from your own community.  Materials you find offensive may
originate in a geography which finds them acceptable.  Keep an open
mind.

Microaggressions? Trigger warnings?

Wait overnight to send emotional responses to messages.  If you
have really strong feelings about a subject, indicate it via
FLAME ON/OFF enclosures.  For example:
FLAME ON:  This type of argument is not worth the bandwidth
           it takes to send it.  It's illogical and poorly
           reasoned.  The rest of the world agrees with me.
FLAME OFF

But, of course, people shoving their CoC down everyone's throat weren't even born.

Is there a simple, non-bullshit, News website to skim headlines?

1 2020-04-05 17:28

I usually don't even try to stay informed and I don't know what online newspaper to open.
I'm looking for a curated list of important information where the agenda isn't too frigging obvious and without too many ads and clickbaits. Oh and one that isn't /pol/

So far, I've found
https://www.reuters.com/ and https://news.yahoo.com/ The latter I hadn't seen since the late nineties and it still looks far superior to most of the newspapers.

Any good suggestions?

How do you handle anxiety?

Exercise: It may seem impossible to get motivated, but you don't need motivation. Don't even bother probing your feelings. Anxiety commonly causes depression, which in turn causes people to feel they are not enjoying thing and will not enjoy things even if they try them. The trick is to do it anyways. Keep it up for months. Try to keep your heart rate elevated for 30 minutes a day. If you fail or are physically tired or sore and cannot do it just accept you are human. Failure is a normal part of life. Try to made exercise a habit. It is not easy, but many people report exercise at the main and best cure for the depression part of anxiety. That can help you sleep better and that will help with feeling tense.

Might try cutting caffeine and stimulants out of your diet and try to not overeat or eat unhealthy foods. Try to avoid taking sleeping pills or other aids to make you feel sleepy. This can help occasionally, but if you are taking them several times a week or multiple nights in a row you are probably only hurting yourself in the long run. Drink a lot of water to help with exercise and avoid headaches.

Look for tips on improving sleep.

Maybe trying making a time to write down you worries (plan for a time to worry and then try to only worry each day during that time), that works for some people.

Mindfulness has proven to help many people with anxiety.

Anxiety sucks. I suggest not resorting to long-term drug use, as there are probably healthier way to deal with it. But even then, drugs are probably better then living with anxiety for years.

Beware of the Xanax. It does the jos as an anxyolitic, but it also has uninhibiting effects. You can become surprisingly violent. The addiction is terrible too.

Of course I use org-mode like all highly successful people. I have a file for my daily tasks, every morning I make a heading for the day and put under it everything I want to get done that day. Usually it's not very long and sometimes I modify it during the day. I schedule all the tasks for the day and use the agenda view to manage them. I also have some recurring tasks set up (like daily Anki reviews) using org-habit and the agenda view also shows birthdays and other important dates that I have set up (using org-anniversary). In university I would also set up deadlines for assignments, tests and exams. Back then I used to track the time I spent studying using org-clock but I don't do that anymore.

I only do these at home, at work I am back to the simple daily todo list. Maybe I should start tracking my time there.
