I haven't used Soulseek in 2 decades. IMO, this sort of behaviour is not legit.

Thanks for the suggestion. This looks like a very powerful tool. Curious to see how well it works.

Then why all this stuff about "A true martyr baths in the glory and knowledge that their cause is just and true."?

And the random stuff about Navalniy? What do you even mean?

I don't have the right to judge Snowden for this?

This is not promoting russian propaganda? Is he not calling for millions of my fellow citizens to be subject to yoke of russian occupation?

For movies/TV shows, try rutracker.org. The interface is in russian, but the torrents almost always include english audio tracks for US/UK movies. Movies from other countries typically do include the original audio track and english subs.

They have a tone of older torrents, with some relatively rare content. There are some strange nuances such as SD rips are often posted with Xvid encoding (even new ones) and HD releases have a rule where they need to include all known russian Dubs/MVO/DVO/AVO audio tracks, so a large part of the file is audio.

But the good thing is that, even low health torrents often eventually have a seed appear. They have a massive networks of seeds/peers that are actually "federated" with lots of other trackers).

For relatively high seed/peer content you can also basically stream the release via "Download in sequential order" and "Download first and last piece first". I regularly essentially stream movies via this method.

They are decent for music too. Video games will likely be challenging if you don't speak russian and many releases actually don't include the original language.

You know nothing about me.

But please, feel free to keep LARPing as some sort of deep and empathetic individual.

In this case, the lack of Linux is the point. :)

They are just another sketchy large tech company. The first release might be a little less obnoxious for PR reasons, but they don't give a fuck about anyone's digital privacy.

It's kinda the point of the meme. :)

"Apple Intelligence" is the name of their AI feature-set in the next release of iOS.

Thank you for the kind words and support for Ukraine. It genuinely means a lot to me. We are having this back and forth and banter, but this a real point that means a lot.

I believe he was going to LATAM and he couldn't continue while transiting through russia. But that's beside the point. For me personally, I question his motives wrt revealing data on US surveillance following his collaboration with the russians. All local digital services (mobile phones, ISP, social media, streaming) are under the direct supervision their security services. It's basically like the USSR. You can literally get 5 years in jail for social media post, sure this really become more common after 2022. But even back in 2012, they were well on their with establishing a digital surveillance regime.

Sure, it’s legitimate to criticize anything. But without taking all the circumstances into account, the critique loses relevance. At least for me it does, and that’s what I’m arguing.

Why is his collaborating with the russians not a fair circumstance to take in account? If he is being forced to work with them, then shouldn't we disregard what he says as being suspect? Aren't there better spokespersons for the FOSS/digital privacy movement that can be promoted instead?

And we’re back in the discussion at hand :) the only consequences I can think of, that comes from Snowden collaboration is the propaganda tool he is now, and the intelligence he had to offer 11 years ago. Disregard him to mitigate the propaganda consequences.

He is almost certainly trying to leverage his fame and influence to promote russian security services goals; i.e. try to sow discord in the US. Their approach is multi-dimensional; for example in europe they were involved with green organizations in order to counteract the possibility of a rise in shale gas production in Europe. That's why it's best to not give any attention to Snowden; he is a russian tool. I would even speculate that he has internalized a lot of their goals (he is a russian citizen after all).

I don’t think that I’m putting Snowden on a pedestal. All I’m saying is that, like everyone else in Russia, who have a public profile, Snowden knows that he can either toe the party line, or plunge to his death from a basement window. What we really need to do, is to realize that anything coming from the mouths of anybody in Russia, is the result of a proverbial gun to their heads and should be treated thusly.

While this is true, people most definitely put Snowden on the pedestal and do not critically approach his statements.

While RMS does come off as provincial and somewhat delusional, he is a very smart and forward-looking fellow. I agree with his take on big corporation, privacy, freedom.

What I don't agree with is promoting Snowden as a messenger for RMS' viewpoints. You can't have it both ways; he can't be both forced to collaborate with the russians for his "survival" and be open in his statements. There are many other folks worth promoting who share RMS' viewpoints.

There isn’t such a thing as “good surveillance”, or “better surveillance”, if you do surveillance you can’t pretend a position of moral superiority to others who do the same, even if you still don’t chase people who say certain things online, it’s on the horizon. Thanks to Snowden sacrifice we know some of the USA government surveillance. He didn’t “back down at the first sign of trouble”, what he did made him lose the life he had, I’d like to see you in his position.

This is where you have a very primitive and parochial take. Getting sent to jail via kangaroo court for a relatively moderate social media post is far more damaging than the impact of western surveillance. If you don't understand this you are lost.

He did back down at the first sign of trouble. He chose to work with the russian security services when things got rough. He had other choices, go back to the US, refuse to work with the russians and just let them know that he would prefer to keep quiet.

You seem to have a very "hollywood" interpretation of russian security services. Yes, they are brutal, but their propaganda/communication outreach is not some "star wars antagonist" type bullshit. They see value in Snowden, simply executing him or even sending him to jail would undermine this value for them.

I will add that (most?) MLs don't openly claim support for the russians, but their positions and rhetoric is almost always pro-russian imperialism.

The “nato provoked Russia” argument is for idiots who don't know russians, don't anything about russian history and culture and who have never lived.

I am genuinely curious how this will work and how games will be supported

The so-called AI engine is supposed to help gamers lose less with features like AI Skysight which scans the game's mini map in real time for threats and then points them out to the player.

Seems pretty wild to release $950/$900 (realistically will be over $1000 out of pocket) monitors with DP 1.4.

I almost feel like this a somewhat pointless feature. It's almost easier to just learn the default ones as opposed to adding "-modernbindings" or creating an "enano" variant/copy.

The silver lining (if it even exists) seems to be that they are at least focused on more local "edge" scenarios for generative "AI".

2.5 KW PSU, that's a crazy power supply.

Not sure why fans needs USB-C, but what do I know?
