I feel like facebook tried that. It’s straight garbage on any controversial topic, at least how they implement it.

For context, my oldest friend has been trying to unionize his largely conservative coworkers at a gun factory. Even the people that are more receptive to leftist ideas are very suspicious of “liberals.” It’s a complicated problem. Many of them would identify as independents, but are strongly attracted to libertarian aesthetic and bywords.

It might be time to reclaim the word “libertarian.”

From my understanding, the main benefit of the quantumness was the inability of third parties to intercept data without changing it. But it sounds like this system relies on a series of base-stations relaying the data over fiber optic cables. Each of these base stations have access to all the keys, per Yogthos’ article.


The article says Samsung has already released one in South Korea, so it seems like it’d be pretty easy to confirm.

Edit: Looks like it does exist, has existed for two years, and so it’s very believable that China has one too. No reason to lie about it really

I wasn’t really disputing that the phone exists, more that it performs the way that they say it does. I’m not really sure how you would test it. From my very limited understanding, it’s already incredibly difficult to break conventional encryption.

I admittedly don’t know much about the technology involved, but this seems very unlikely to be true.

I’m not sure why people need to sign as many contracts as is normal now. Like, I can walk into a brick and mortar store without signing anything, I don’t understand why I have to read sixty pages of legalese to use Amazon.

The plural of anecdote is not evidence, and antivaxxers have been known to lie.

It changed in the March 2022 release! Mastodon used to use CLD3 to analyze posts and detect language, but this was slow and inaccurate. Now it uses the user’s interface language. https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/blob/main/CHANGELOG.md#removed-2

I like Movim, and the interface is slick. But the web app breaks for me sometimes and it’s pretty frustrating.

Intel Rapid Storage Technology. It’s an Intel-specific way of managing multiple hard-drives at the same time.

Actually, looks like I forgot a step. At least on my computer, I had to hit Ctrl-S on this screen of the UEFI before the option to change my SATA mode was even displayed. Sorry if this doesn’t help.

It used to be much easier. The tools have gotten better over time, but about ten years ago it was a much simpler, if slower, process. Disabling RST needs be done in the UEFI menu you can access through the Advanced Restart in Windows. The menu item goes by a couple different names, and it can be in different places depending on the model and brand of your PC. Sorry if that was not much help. On mine, it was under Storage in the UEFI, and I needed to toggle it from “RAID” to “AHCI”.

Sorry if you’ve already done this, but did you follow this step of the tutorial?

As your computer reboots, you should see a message telling you to press a certain key to access the Boot Menu (usually something like F12). If not, you’ll see a key to enter Setup (often Delete). Press one of those keys, and look for the option to boot from the inserted USB drive.

Different computers can use different keys to enter the boot menu. A good move might be to search your PC model name (I.e. “Acer nitro”) and the phrase “boot menu hotkey.”

Another way might be to go into the Windows settings, user Update & Security - Recovery, and press “Restart Now” under Advanced Startup. This will reboot the PC, and bring you a menu where you can boot from different devices.

Be honest, OP. Did you put that there?
