So I guess it is a Samsung specific bug. Very interesting. The black background when swiping back also seems to be a Samsung only bug.

Maybe we should crowdfund lj a Samsung phone.

A quotation circulates on the Internet, attributed to me, but it wasn't written by me.

Here's the text that is circulating. Most of it was copied from statements I have made, but the part italicized here is not from me. It makes points that are mistaken or confused.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux,” and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.

Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

The main error is that Linux is not strictly speaking part of the GNU system—whose kernel is GNU Hurd. The version with Linux, we call “GNU/Linux.” It is OK to call it “GNU” when you want to be really short, but it is better to call it “GNU/Linux” so as to give Torvalds some credit.

We don't use the term “corelibs,” and I am not sure what that would mean, but GNU is much more than the specific packages we developed for it. I set out in 1983 to develop an operating system, calling it GNU, and that job required developing whichever important packages we could not find elsewhere.

It doesn't really spoil much of the plot tbh and it's still a great book but going from memory:

the sceneWhy is this so hard to put into words. Have you seen the movies or even the trailer? You know how It flashes between when they were young and later when they return back to the town? This scene is late in the book and takes place when they're young. The boys in the group all take turns having (consensual) sex with the girl

the rationale?it represents them maturing into adults or the bond or something that makes them no longer vulnerable to It? Like I said it's been a while but on much later I remember it frequently being referenced as a gangbang and someone would always correct sharing it's a train 🤷‍♂️

I swear it's otherwise a fantastic book.

Thank you. Maybe it's just me.

That reminds me, many years ago I was reading Stephen King's It from an epub I found online and when I reached that scene I stopped reading and went online just to make sure I wasn't reading some long con prank someone edited in.

Can anyone try going to [email protected] and let me know if it works? It won't load for me and I tried on an account on that instance and still nothing.

While privately acknowledging conflict is good for business, the defense industry and its financiers publicly claim they are simply doing America’s bidding. As Lockheed Martin CEO James Taiclet once said, “It’s only up to us to step to what we’ve been asked to do and we’re just trying to do that in a more effective way, and that’s our role.” After all, it was the U.S. government — not Lockheed Martin — that came to Israel’s defense and intercepted the majority of Iran’s missiles.

But this “we just do what we’re told” defense doesn’t quite work given that defense contractors are actively shaping U.S. foreign policy through lobbying and campaign contributions, among other tactics. Aaron Acosta, program director at Investor Advocates for Social Justice, told Responsible Statecraft that defense contractors “are often the ones creating demand by lobbying the U.S. government and pushing for sales of these weapons.”

Of course they are.

World Central Kitchen is demanding an independent investigation on the strikes.

Jonathan Duguay, a close friend of Flickinger who was working in Cyprus for World Central Kitchen at the time of the attack, told The Canadian Press in an interview that Flickinger wasn’t afraid because the aid deliveries were co-ordinated with Israel’s assistance. Article content

“We had an agreement with the IDF,” said Duguay. “There was a special route. They knew where we were.”

Flickinger joined World Central Kitchen last fall to help recover from PTSD developed during his tour in Afghanistan. He and his partner, Sandy Leclerc, had recently moved to Costa Rica with their son, who is 18 months old.
