>>11215
flatpak is ok, it's got some security features and it's got some disk space saving features. The NIX package-manager is probably nicer tho.

I think that it's best that software should go into normal distro repositories once it reached a level of maturity where it really doesn't matter if you don't have the absolutely latest version.

Flatpak & company are good for those peaces of software where you have to have the newest version.

Tbf this is a sane reaction to the still ongoing fallout from pushing dynamic linking onto every major OS. Closed source software and software with library breakage between version (which is most of modern linux atm) should always receive portable distributions, so it can run regardless of the whims of your distro's package maintainers and hardly-avoidable bitrot.

So apparently Palemoon became the first browser to officially implemented JPEG XL a week ago. At the same time, Google just dropped it from Chromium despite supporting it behind a flag for months. What the hell is going on here? Is Google that desperate to push their video-codecs-as-image-formats that they're willing to sabotage a massive step forward for the web? JPEG XL is capable of replacing both original JPEG, PNG, and animated GIF/PNG all at once with a single file type that produces superior file sizes for all three categories of use cases. Neither WebP, HEIC, nor AVIF were ever able to make such a broad, sweeping improvement because they are geared more towards features important to video encoding than still images or lossless animation.

It seems like every few weeks these days I find something new to get mad about in the world of web development.

I tried to find out the reason, and it is not clear why this happened, some people think it's a patent thing, although that has been disputed. It's unlikely that it is a technical reason. It seems more likely to be political. The googs has more control over the development of webp than jpegxl, so they push that.

But if you want a systemic analysis the googs can only do that because they dominate the browserspace.
If Firefox gained more popularity while supporting jpegxl, the googs would have to follow suit and support it too.

I don't know if that this is necessarily the death of the format. If the Mozilla foundation is clever they can accumulate support for those useful features that the googs is not implementing. While nobody will switch browsers or change their web-development pattern for this one format, it is likely that a big enough number of feature differentiations can make people change browsers again.

This is from a thread i started about thievery in general, mostly was about shoplifting wih other miscellaneous theft thrown in. had started it while ago, routinely posted additional resources to keep it alive but overall pretty much consider lainchan pretty dead at this point
https://lainchan.org/%CE%94/res/8273.html

So here is some actual substance copied/pasted from the thread, which ill probably split into a few posts

advice:
-have a trip to the store simply to case it and know what you want beforehand
-Keep store visits under 15 min
-Have your routes planned
-research police response times for your area
-look into company's turnover rates
-check the frequency of crimes in your selected area(more crime less time)

pt2


use google, specifically
- Maps, plan your route(more importantly escape route) and know the terrain around the area of your target(also useful in non-shoplifting thefts/other fukkery)
- "Popular times" feature(enter the address of the store) to gauge what days and what hours are their peak/busiest(more people means less focus)
- "See Photos"/"See Outside" of the store, will give lay of the land and clue into how well sorted the store is.
- use google/indeed/other reviews on the specific store, could be considered overkill but skim the reviews, gives insight into the employees/management there and how much of a potential problem they could be

Look up how to make a magic bag, there should be something floating around or at least some old tips from totse/zoklet/bombshock/rorta

There is a difference between what we know to be true, and what we can show to be true in the fairy tale world of the legal system. This is why this qualifies as news, because the issue has now moved into the latter group, so they can no longer lie about it in subsequent related trials.

Apple being cut from exactly the same cloth as Google:

https://gizmodo.com/apple-iphone-analytics-tracking-even-when-off-app-store-1849757558
> Apple Is Tracking You Even When Its Own Privacy Settings Say It’s Not, New Research Says
> An independent test suggests Apple collects data about you and your phone when its own settings promise to “disable the sharing of Device Analytics altogether.”
> November 8, 2022

> For all of Apple’s talk about how private your iPhone is, the company vacuums up a lot of data about you. iPhones do have a privacy setting that is supposed to turn off that tracking. According to a new report by independent researchers, though, Apple collects extremely detailed information on you with its own apps even when you turn off tracking, an apparent direct contradiction of Apple’s own description of how the privacy protection works.


> The iPhone Analytics setting makes an explicit promise. Turn it off, and Apple says that it will “disable the sharing of Device Analytics altogether.” However, Tommy Mysk and Talal Haj Bakry, two app developers and security researchers at the software company Mysk, took a look at the data collected by a number of Apple iPhone apps—the App Store, Apple Music, Apple TV, Books, and Stocks. They found the analytics control and other privacy settings had no obvious effect on Apple’s data collection—the tracking remained the same whether iPhone Analytics was switched on or off.

Don't get a prostitute. Probably the worst thing you could do, unless you want to be a trick.

Every little action is a vote for the sort of person you want to become. By getting a prostitute, you're telling your inner self, 'Im the type of guy who can only get laid if I pay for it.' Absolutely disasterous for your self image.

For your birthday, grab a (preferably non alcoholic) drink with a friend or acquaintance, if you have nothing else planned. As for getting laid easily, shooting for less than hot girls makes it easier. So does booze. But you want to use both as a stepping stone to better things without getting stuck using either as a long term crutch.

Why aren't you fit, anon?
>Literally takes 10-15 minutes per day to add muscles with basic bodyweight exercises. To lose fat, do fast cardio (think 15 second sprints and 2 minutes walking). Cut out unnecessary calories like sugar and milk in coffee. Never eat until you are completely full. It generally takes 15 minutes or so for your brain to catch up with your stomach. Stop eating when you're 70% full. Be careful with alcohol and drugs that wreck inhibitions, since they'll cause you to make poorer food choices.

I would like to know what you think about the Balenciaga case. In my opinion, I think that all these brands conspire to send subliminal messages and unfortunately, they ha

ve been doing this for several years but we have not noticed it because we do not pay attention to the details.

Now, just imagine, if this is the case with Balenciaga and Adidas, do you think there are more brands in other markets that do this kind of thing?

I would like to know opinions and/or thoughts, as this is a topic that is very recent and is of international interest.

A while back, I wrote a summary of every chapter from Robert Greene's '48 Laws of Power.'

If you haven't read it, I'd highly recommend. These summaries don't do the book justice, since I've stripped away the historical anecdotes and quotes which really make the work come to life. However, I think there are still some interesting tidbits and lessons in these summaries, so I thought I'd share.

<11- LEARN TO KEEP PEOPLE DEPENDENT ON YOU

From Robert Greene:

>"Necessity rules the world. People rarely act unless compelled to. If you create no need for yourself, then you will be done away with at first opportunity."


>"No one will come to depend on you if they are already strong. If you are ambitious, it is much wiser to seek out weak rulers or masters with whom you can create a relationship of dependency. You become their strength, their intelligence, their spine. What power you hold! If they got rid of you the whole edifice would collapse."


>"Do not be one of the many who mistakenly believed that the ultimate form of power is independence. Power involves a relationship between people, you will always need others as allies, pawns, or even as weak masters who serves as your front. The completely independent man would live in a cabin in the woods– he would have the freedom to come and go as he pleased, but he would have no power. The best you can hope for is that others grow so dependent on you that you enjoy a kind of reverse independence. Their need for you frees you."


What utility do you have? In what way do you serve the interests of others? Why should people keep you in their life?

If you don't know, then you're in a perilous position.

People are inherently greedy. We rarely tolerate the company of others unless we believe they benefit us. Take this into account. Find ways to serve people's interests better than anyone else.

<12 - USE SELECTIVE HONESTY AND GENEROSITY TO DISARM YOUR OPPONENTS

From Robert Greene:

>"An act of kindness, generosity, or honesty is often the most powerful form of distraction because it disarms from others suspicions."


>"Learn to give before you take. It softens the ground, takes the bite out of a future request, or simply creates a distraction."


>"Honesty is one of the best ways to disarm the weary, but it is not the only one. Any kind of noble, apparently selfless act will serve. Perhaps the best such act, though, is one of generosity. Few people can resist a gift, even from the most hardened enemy. Which is why it is often the perfect way to disarm people. Although we often view other people's actions in the most cynical light, we rarely see the Machiavellian elements of a gift, which quite often hides ulterior motives. A gift is the perfect object in which to hide a deceptive move."


Even when we know someone ‘buttering us up' with compliments or a gift, it is a hard to resist letting our guards down. When someone acts with apparent (even superficial) generosity, we naturally feel as though they respect the effort entailed in fulfilling their upcoming request.

Use to learn this law to your favor.

At the start of an interview or oral examination however, deliver a compliment to those judging you.

<13 - WHEN ASKING FOR HELP, APPEAL TO PEOPLE'S SELF-INTEREST, NEVER TO THEIR MERCY OR GRATITUDE

From Robert Greene:

>"Uncover something in your request, or in your alliance with him, that will benefit him, and emphasize it out of all proportion."


>"In the end, most people are in fact pragmatic. They will rarely act against their own self-interest."


>"There is an art to asking for help, and art that depends on your ability to understand the person you are dealing with, and not to confuse your needs with theirs."


>"Do not be subtle: you have valuable knowledge to share, and you will fill his coffers with gold, you will make him live longer and happier. This is a language that all of us speak and understand."


>"Self-interest is the lever that will move people. Once you make them see how you can in some way meet their needs or advance their cause, the resistance to your request for help will magically fall away."


Everyone values different things, but they fall into a few categories. Security, excitement, significance, personal connection, growth, and contribution often top people's list of needs.

<14 - POSE AS A FRIEND, WORK AS A SPY

From Robert Greene

>"In polite social encounters, learn to probe. Ask indirect questions to get people to reveal their weaknesses and intentions. There is no occasion that is not an opportunity for artful spying."


>"A friendly front will let you secretly gather information on friends and enemies alike."


>"Emphasize friendly chatter, not valuable information. Your search for gems of information cannot be too obvious, or your probing questions will reveal more about yourself and your intentions than about the information you hope to find."


>"Another method of indirect spying is to test people, to lay little traps that make them reveal things about themselves…. By tempting people into certain acts, you learn about their loyalty, their honesty, and so on and this kind of knowledge is often the most valuable all: armed with it, you can predict their actions in the future."


Law 14 is another reason to be weary of friends. The intimate knowledge they accumulate can be used against you at any time.

Use this law to your advantage. Guard yourself from the danger posed by friends (true and false alike) while learning to use a friendly charm to glean information.

<15 - CRUSH YOUR ENEMY TOTALLY

From Robert Greene:

>"Your enemies wish you ill. There is nothing they want more than to eliminate you. If, in your struggles with them, you stop halfway or even three-quarters of the way, out of mercy or hope of reconciliation, you will only make them more determined, more embittered, and they will someday take revenge. They may act friendly for the time being, but this is only because you have defeated them."


>"The solution is to have no mercy. Crush your enemies as totally as they would crush you."


>"The goal of total victory is an axiom of modern warfare…..The goal of power is to control your enemies completely to make them obey your will. You cannot afford to go halfway."


>"There will be people you cannot win over, who will remain your enemies no matter what. But whatever wounds you inflict on them, deliberately or not, do not take their hatred personally – just recognize that there is no possibility for a peace between you, especially as long as you stay in power."


In cases where you can not win enemies over, you must destroy them completely.

Do not be foolish enough to believe they will quietly accept a partial defeat. Given enough time, they will plot for revenge and seek out opportunities to undermine your power.

Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these:
-some Matrix protocol tool
-some XMPP protocol tool
-Jitsi
-Jami

What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.

Incels don't deserve rights.

Here's what I mean. Banging a few chicks isn't very impressive. It's a rather low bar. But what does that say about a guy who can't even do that? It means they are a low quality man.
It's like being able to do one pull up. It's not very impressive. But if you can't do that, it means you are weak and have neglected to train your body.

A lot of incels run their mouths, thinking that they're offering insightful knowledge.
<You're not.

Listening to an incel talk about women is like listening to a homeless person talk about financial planning, or listening to a guy who can't do a pull up talk about fitness. In short, you have absolutely no clue what you're talking about, but have convinced yourself you do as some ghey coping mechanism.

Obviously, there is a grain of truth to incel screeds, in a hermetic philosophical sense. The problem is, it's the most disempowering truth available, framed in the worst way possible.

'Girls don't fuck average guys,' you say.

Ok, don't be average. Find a way to leverage aspects yourself to rise above your own stale faggotry. It's not that hard. And if it is too hard for you, then I guess you get exactly what you deserve considering you claim to know the consequences of being average.

Reminder if you are not a chad women will not take any interest in anything you say or do, no matter how remarkable it is. How do I know? I used to be 'the hot kid' for a year or two in my teens and became average after I grew older. Though I never scored with a chick because I was an autist, here's the kind of shit that used to happen.

-Girls would ooh and ahh when I walked past, some pinched me trying to get my attention
-girls would 'sneakily' follow me everywhere and try to catch a glimpse of me
-one girl would pretend to use a makeup mirror to spy on me
-Girls would approach me and try to start conversations even though I was an introvert and had nothing to say
-Neighbor used to invite me out to hang out with her and would rub my hair
-girls would giggle around me in class and try to rub my hair
-Female hs teachers gave me better grades and tried to hangout with me after class
-girls would openly compliment me call me sexy in class etc
-if I went to my friends house his sister would try flirting with me, laugh at my jokes even if I made none, always try to hover around me

All that shit is gone now, women now will just ignore me/act like I dont exist at parties. Will not bother talking to me or taking any interest, never find my jokes funny or compliment me etc.

The cold reality is if you're not a chad women dont really have any reason to give a fuck about you and you will always be friendzoned at best. They don't really give a shit about your personality, it's all a halo effect from your attractiveness. No amount of hairstyles, confidence, style etc will change anything unless your face is attractive. And if you do somehow score a gf, she will hop branches, never have true sexual attraction towards you, sex will be lame etc. There is no 'type,' only a singular hot chad and if you were in the 5% you would.

redpillers can't fathom a possibility that women can not care about material things when it comes to mating
obviously because of their material conditions (being a betabux) determining their psychological and ideological state

some of them go as far as to claim that women are actually frigid lol and don't enjoy sex

and bluepillers can't fathom a possibility that women care primarily about material things when it comes to non-chads that they are not sexually attracted to
of course because of their material conditions too

I already watched Death Note, Code Geass, Hyouka, Classroom of the Elite, Kaiji, Akagi, No Game No Life (some of it was nonsense, but some of it was really impressive), The Promised Neverland, Legend of the Galactic Heroes (I am mentioning this one even though it wasn't mainly focused on mind games so nobody suggests it anyway), One Outs, Talentless Nana, Kakegurui and Zankyou no Terror (it focused on mind games at the start).

Let's have a thread where we ask questions and give advice to improve exactly that.

Step one is not caring too much about it, you figured out she was flirting with you and simply being clued in enough to figure that out however belatedly is an advance

Things are looking up for you clearly you have some pull or a woman wouldn't have flirted with you QED

I would consider myself quite sociable and conventionally attractive. I have no problem talking at length with most people including women. All my relationships in the past have either started because somebody set me up or pure luck. I literarily don't know how to flirt or return advances. I feel like i have a mental block thats always telling me to "not make them think I like them" even if i do.

There is no trick, you just do it. I can go down all the arguments
>fuck what everyone else thinks, that will only hold you back
>good guys will give you cudos for trying, even if you fail
>you will gain experience and will be better when the next girl comes around
yada yada, you just do it. You are not a creep for showing interest in a girl. That's the most normal thing. And perhaps one day a girl might interpret your advances as creepy, just accept that. This land mine type of mentality that turns you into an in-active pussy is exactly what differentiates men from boys. Just accept that there are going to be girls who will interpret your advances as creepy, despite the fact you weren't actually being creepy. If she feels that way about you, accept it and move on, but don't let it stifle you. That's not even worth discussing since this girl gave you plenty of signals she felt comfortable with you.

I will give you a piece of advice. Make flirting with others something normal to you. Flirting is just playful jabs and you can do it with anyone. If that becomes second nature for you, it won't feel off or artificial once you are doing it, because you are actually interested in the person.

Whenever I do get into political disagreements with people I know in my real world, I've gotten quite good at the "being compassionate and respectful, knowing they're only like this out of conditioning" part, but when they do ask me questions, my mind tends to freeze up and I only know the answers days after the fact. Is this something I can overcome, and if so, how?

This picture is only true within Burgerland. Go overseas and you'll see that a stable man that can provide is considered a catch, and what's passes a pretty in the states is considered ugly almost everywhere else.

Weekly Goal Tracking Thread
>Itt: we celebrate personal victories, achievements, and the actions we've taken to improve our lives over the past week. Use this weekly thread to track progress and move toward goals, be they big or small, individual or political.
<Improving the world starts with improving yourself
>How to use this thread
Throughout the week, keep a mental note of the positive things you're doing. As the weekend rolls around, list them down by Sunday. When we take a moment to celebrate minor personal victories and goals, we're more likely to repeat and stick with them. This weekly post exists to help you keep on track and improve your life.
>Positive change doesn't occur all at once. Rather it's the compounded effect of small daily habits and repeated action.
