I hate it when I click on a link with an interesting title and website has no text. All I get is a link to a YouTube channel or podcast. I don't have time to watch or listen to your show! Just write down what you want to share.

That's happening all around, but the 'Merica First thing made me smile. The OSSC Pro IP is an product of Iceland! :-) If you read the thread, there is an open source DIY design planned. That will allow you to assemble your own unit in country, but that's imperfect because the components will still be products of cheap labor. It's unavoidable.

Technically, if you want an all-American device, you can't build an OSSC Pro. That IP is "manufactured" in Iceland (that's where marq's brain is) and marqs isn't getting paid a fair wage for the work. From design to manufacturing, nobody is making money.

If you're concerned about global inequality, almost everything that people do contributes. In many cases, there are few or no alternatives. I didn't get the impression the temper tantrum in that thread is really about global inequality, though. It's rooted in globalism and trade grievances. That's a valid complaint, but it's bollocks to go trolling and politicking marqs. Marqs is very resourceful, but he doesn't rule the planet. There's only so much he can do, here.

That discussion in that thread is off topic trolling and shit posting.

This same thing happens over and over again (the hardware forum gets messy and there are viscous personal attacks).

If you haven't yet, go back and read the first couple pages of the RT5x thread:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=67984

Like, really, the Tech threads should just be tech threads. The ideal is to keep an archive of usable information for people to search with those parts of the forum.

Guys, talk to the moderators about that shit. Don't spread it to other threads.

I'm not sure that's little... it's certainly the sort of thing that would absolutely piss the everloving shit out of me. :/

They're selfish, and brainwashed by the anti-science messaging being fed to them. We live in an absurd period of history.

What's worse, we have Trump on tape talking to Bob Woodward and saying it's a horrible plague but he's gonna downplay it. IN HIS OWN VOICE!

(Fuck Bob Woodward for not releasing the tape at the time and instead sitting on it several months until his book was in print.)

Though I'm increasingly convinced that conservatives don't worship Donald Trump the man at all, but some kind of totemic God-King archetype. They can just slot in or out whoever their cultural leaders say is the current incarnation. I remember when Republicans were violently worshipful of Bush jr, and as soon as he was no longer useful they dropped him like he was nothing.

No, youtube algorithm, I DON'T want to watch 4-year-old Jordan Peterson videos.

Doesn't matter what I just watched, even if it's a trans left-wing youtuber, the algorithm REALLY REALLY wants to autoplay old Peterson videos.

Somebody with money wants him to come back in a big way.
