>Crypto-Driven Meshnet Gives Rural Towns Internet
>Oregon Residents Connect to Decentralized Internet Service Powered by Crypto
>Essentially, a mesh network (meshnet) is a local network topology that allows people to relay and share bandwidth and route data from/to other participants. If the network grows stronger, it can operate in a non-hierarchical fashion and the more cooperation the better the network will perform. Althea’s meshnet service provides people with the incentive to host decentralized ISPs in any community, rather than relying on the monopolized services provided by cable and fiber-optic providers.

>What critical thinking? Wayback Machine is now complicit in Big Tech censorship
>The webpage archive service Wayback Machine’s decision to additionally label already-deleted articles as ‘disinformation’ is internet history revisionism that comes at a time when critical thinking is desperately needed.
>Earlier this month, Wayback Machine took heed of MIT Technology Review’s protests that they are breathing life into debunked coronavirus ‘hoaxes’, and took to retroactively labelling past web pages and content removed from their original pages with warnings decrying the information presented as false.
>By towing the censorship line like it has, Wayback Machine — which has offered a valuable service up until this point — is now complicit. The division and disparity in the enforced rules between different voices reveals that behind the mask lies an agenda.
>By tarnishing some — but not all — voices with the disinformation brush, much of the media, academia, and (predominantly) big tech are putting ideological allegiances before anything else. Now, as ever, is not the time for that. Once we know more, we can evaluate what is wrong and what is right. However, if we continue to censor the past, attaching intent to some but not to others, we will be unable to evaluate anything at all.

Although, that's typical of the theory, there is application magnetically.
>Magnetism is found throughout the Universe. Magnetic fields are known to exist in planets, stars, accretion disks, the interstellar medium, galaxies and in active galactic nulcei (cf. the article on galactic magnetic fields). Often these magnetic fields are generated and maintained by magnetohydrodynamic dynamo action (e.g. the solar dynamo or planetary dynamos, which are described by hydromagnetic dynamo theory), and in many cases the magnetic field is dynamically dominant, determining the evolution of the object.
Topics studied within MHD include typical computational astrophysics topics, such as magneto-convection, MHD turbulence and hydromagnetic dynamo action. Typically, a multitude of intermittent magnetic structures are generated in such systems, e.g. magnetic flux tubes, loops, filaments and arcades. On the Sun and other stars, these magnetic structures may take the form of cool spots (sunspots) and magnetic bright points.
Magnetic structures can store enormous amounts of energy that may be released through reconnection of magnetic field lines (MHD reconnection) leading to solar flares and stellar or even galactic eruptions. It is in this way that the Sun causes storms in the heliospherical magnetic field and ultimately aurorae and space weather.

reconnection of magnetic field lines (MHD reconnection)
A connector or central powering system that's within range that drives the fuel(lack of? power) economy.

The government really does hide this stuff… And, only release the conventional. Rather than the unconventional as it should… There's much speculation that goes into this, and there's wealth of progress untapped due to the powers that be in our economies.
>the maximum theoretical efficiency would be 90 percent. Allowing for the inefficiencies introduced by finite heat transfer rates and component inefficiencies in real heat engines, a system employing an MHD generator offers the potential of an ultimate efficiency in the range of 60 to 65 percent. This is much better than the 35 to 40 percent efficiency that can be achieved in a modern conventional plant. In addition, MHD generators produce fewer pollutants than conventional plants. However, the higher construction costs of MHD systems have limited their adoption.
In general, it's much very revolutionary even in the layman's perspective which according to word of (http://battista.web.unc.edu/files/2014/02/introMHD.pdf), "Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is not a field of study for those with only high school equivalent mathematics and science knowledge… much mathematical rigor to simply understand its governing equations," I apply as layman. Nonchalantly as well. Doesn't quite matter to me in that aspect. I see potential in this that'll solve energy crises old and new.

Those pictures... heavy special snowflake syndrome. Women's solution to personal shortcomings: more style. Not reflecting and changing. Rather trying to make the look work more (which fails because if you're the problem you've got to fix that...).

I know many people fail at personal change where it's necessary but only women try to make the look work and if that doesn't work out everybody but themselves is to blame for whatever doesn't fit into their personal view of the world.
On top of that it's often a guessing what's wrong or what they refer to as they constantly avoid to clearly point at or name an issue. All part of the "you don't understand" victim role and to make their special logic work because if you neither know what they're refering to nor what's the issue with it you can't get on the argumentative level with them. It's nerve-racking.

manegele little humanpony

genetics is magic.

base: human dna, edited with pony dna and cat dna (mlp ponies have cat lije features)

i don't think actual hooves would be apropriate, but very stronhly modified paws. those would look more like mlp pony hooves and could still allow for object manipulation.

wings and horns would be mostly useless.

the colors are going to be complicated, especialy blue hues.

Well I've done some online projects, and searching online for what you want to do, and the errors that show up can help you learn more about it.
Searching for specific html5/js commands can get you more information. Asking questions can bring you to what you need to know.

There are some weird edge cases that can appear when you try to do something out of the ordinary.
If you can get an html5 / js / css compiler that helps.
But not needed using any text editing thing will do the job. Oh god the times of editing shit in the terminal/console thankfully with VI or something similar...

Doing your project, and bashing your head into the proverbial brick wall untill it breaks down works. You have to take breaks, and take care of yourself, but it is possible despite all evidence pointing toward it not being able to.

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY SAVE, AND SAVE IN MULTIPLE INSTANCES! Notes and hints, and changelogs are your friend nothing is worse than having everything reverting, or everything breaking due to a small tweak that shouldn't have done anything, but finding why everything is collapsing is nearly impossible. Making you do everything all over again.

While it's not as big as saving, changlogs are handy for any collaborative effort, and if you have to stop working on it for any length of time.
There's alot of stuff that is good to know, and a lot can be deduced with common sense, some practices seem really arbitrary but have a purpose behind it (some are actually arbitrary).
The conferences and expert talks from all walks of life are really helpful. This is one area (of many) that having a broad understanding of everything helps. inversely learming programming also provides a different way of thinking

Cyberpunk Music Thread -- First edition.

What is Cyberpunk Music? Well there's two different ways to break this down.

Purist.
>The music must contain dark lyrical elements
>The music must contain electronic music and punk elements
>The music must be related to the advent of technology somehow
>The music must contain at least a few accessory elements of Cyberpunk culture, such as drug use and cyber crime.

Non-Purist
>The music must seem like it could emerge from the cyberpunk future
>The music must be (of ideas or expression) bold, new or experimental
>The ideas must be futuristic or experimental in nature, or relate to the strange relationship between technology and humans

Everything else is fair game. If you've been listening to music that you would consider cyberpunk, drop it in the thread with a brief description of why. This thread will be a place to find music, share music, and listen to music. If you are a creator of what you consider to be cyberpunk music, go ahead and share it! Almost anything can be extrapolated to be futuristic in ways that could be cyberpunk, so have at it!

I'll start us off with some recommended listening:

>The Doldrums - I'm Homesick Sittin' Up Here in My Satellite
Category: Non-Purist
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1Uok6zdDA0
The Doldrums have usually been what I'd call loose Cyberpunk. Their front-man is a lanklet faggot with a contralto voice but to be honest I love everything that he makes. I'm Homesick... is another song that talks about the relationship between tech and humans, and finding yourself longing for human contact through the addiction of the screen. The instrumental is this aggressive, almost Toxic by Britney Spears style jungle beat with synthesized and sampled violins, guitars, drums. Its a great song

>Machine Girl - Status
Category: Purist
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhNJPqBwKcQ
Machine Girl... goddamn Machine Girl, they never cease to amaze. It's two white dudes from the American east coast who make this shit. One just does some drum sampling and live drums and the other one is the real idea-talent behind it. Status is a song, expressed in the most cyberpunk terms, about getting way too fucking high. "Status? Whats your condition?!/Manic! I'm pickin blisters/Static - cut off transmission/I've had it, this trip will take me off the planet/..." The song is riddled with weird polyrhythms, strange samples, strange math music, expert screaming. Some of the best shit I've ever heard to be honest. If you're into weird music then listen to Machine Girl. They're some of the best out there.

>Show Me The Body - Trash
Category: Purist
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITkvtZGTyHk
Fresh from the streets of NYC, this is some of what I'd call the purest cyberpunk. Gritty vocals, anti-establisment/drug/crime drenched vocals, electronic sampling in almost every song. The creation philosphy of these fuckers is to create by destruction, throwing up the compression, the filters, taking samples and then aurally obliterating them, reducing it to noise rubble. They mention tech sometimes, but its not the focus of their music.

Alright fuckers, have fun. I made this thread because I love you guys.
