Currently watched episode 8 of season 1 and it's very good story telling, cinematography is great (Better even than Legion) and the action is Matrix like only more realistic and very brutal.

The story is about 8 people who get 'mentally' linked, how and why is the main story, but all 8 character have their own plot all over the world. Their indivual plotlines are not so much sci-fi (apart from the link) but about extreme social situations going on today. Kenya, India, Korea, Iceland, England, Mexico, Germany and USA are all interwoven.

I was shocked to only have found out about this series about 2 weeks ago, it's really really good, did not expect this from a Netflix production but looking at the creators and if you know their previous works you'll know it's gotta be good.

Warning: It's an adult series.

waterfox features ecosia, not bing, rofl. aka ur fakenews

Just installed it, it defaults to bing... ecosia is one of the 'search-engine' options but not the default.

and waterfox remembers history by default

You're right here, but I'm not sure how that's a good thing regarding privacy (from the settings page):

Waterfox will remember your browsing, download, form and search history, and keep cookies from websites you visit.

I misread the waterfox page and they were only boasting about their 'privacy' tab.

and the palemoon/basilisk dev has been known to block some plugins over false/stupid reasons

Not supporting is something different from blocking and for palemoon speaking it doesn't follow Mozilla's line of code for a long time so it's a valid reason to not support their plugin standards.

Waterfox is firefox with 'never remember history' defaulted and late security updates.

How is palemoon (or basilisk) 'cucked' and somehow waterfox not? palemoon runs great on low spec system that can't handle the latest firefox anymore.

Edit: and waterfox features BING, aka the dev gets money from microsoft, why else would he do this?

Brexit text 'agreed' in talks breakthrough [Leave doesn't really mean leave as it turns out, oh my, what a surprise] by Mnemonic in Europe

[–]Mnemonic[S] 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

It's because the 'leading brexiteers' aren't coming up with their own draft about how things like the border dispute in Ireland should be handled.

It's been almost 2 years and the politicians of the pro-Brexit camp have all left the parliament while saying 'leave means leave' but never ever in that whole time come up with a Brexit-plan.

It's a bloody mess and a disgrace that these brexiteers are urging anything while doing completely bupkis. They can always blame May when things go wrong and that's their 'political agenda' so they can take the power when the ultimatum of the no-deal is reached and everyone is screwed over.

'Leave means leave' is not a draft, not even the beginning of a draft the finished 'deal' should at least be something akin to the declaration of independence, but 'leave means leave' is really all they've ever put out.

Look at this rant and realize I wrote this in 5 minutes, why can't the brexiteers come up with something more in almost 2 years? They 'already knew' what they wanted when it was referendum time, but somehow they forgot that, lost it or Hmmm never had a clue but they earn their money through this drama.

George Carlin --- Religion is Bullshit by RavAshi in atheism

[–]Mnemonic 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

*Institutionalized Religion.

He basically rants against the Church like Jesus did against the Temples.

It was a nice wake up call for America because their Churches are only bested in crazyness by a few extremist branches around the world. And I can see why he calls it religion in general because 'institutionalized religion' is too easily associated with the Churches and, like he says, they have a lot of money to sue.

Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told.

This holds much truth as it's the telling part that should be gone. Also it figures he goes off on a rant more specifically towards the Sand-trilogy (aka the Abrahamitic religions) and leaves out the (for example) various Native American ones, Eastern ones and European ones before the Romans came with their weird version of the Christ.

For example most 'Gnostic' - branches (Christian-like or not) would have this rant hung like a declaration of independence in their (if they have one) worship area.

The main appeal of atheism is the Institutionalized Relgion's tendencies to dictate what's right/wrong from books and higher authorities (I don't mean God, because that's the book, but clergy people dictating) and enforce it through mob and/or governments. While funny enough even the most extreme 'truth enforcing' religions do have a saying/quote somewhere in their many texts about the dangers of books, texts, stories and the way they DO NOT relate to current events.

Pretty sure the Tor-browser out ranks them, but these are nice firefox replacements.

Palemoon is the one I go with when a page is too much of a hassle to access with blockers, it's besides your point also a tat faster than Firefox in my experience.

I'm not all to familiar with this war and in what order it happened, but this one http://archive.wul.waseda.ac.jp/kosho/bunko11/bunko11_a0380/bunko11_a0380_0002/bunko11_a0380_0002_p0033.jpg looks like the tea party? or did something happen with the natives?(I can't find anything about the Natives being in the war)

DS9 is decent, maybe try an episode guide so you only watch the main arc. TOS is pretty meh, was so underwhelming watching it after having it hyped by all Trekkies as the best.

Today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups... by Mnemonic in quotes

Well the 'The Library of America' has a great collection of his novels (including the complete V.A.L.I.S. trilogy), so it won't go down easily.

Then there is 'The Exegesis of Philip K Dick' which is a monster and such a cluster of all things (reading the V.A.L.I.S. trilogy beforehand is recommended) that I'm still busy with it because catching up on the references he casually mentions in his letters are big and hard texts. But a very good look into his mind and how the V.A.L.I.S. trilogy came to be.

Some more solid Dick:

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them.” Philip K. Dick

“The problem with introspection is that it has no end.” ― Philip K. Dick

“This, to me, is the ultimately heroic trait of ordinary people; they say no to the tyrant and they calmly take the consequences of this resistance.” ― Philip K. Dick

“I guess that's the story of life: what you most fear never happens, but what you most yearn for never happens either. This is the difference between life and fiction. I suppose it's a good trade-off. But I'm not sure.” ― Philip K. Dick

“There will come a time when it isn't 'They're spying on me through my phone' anymore. Eventually, it will be 'My phone is spying on me'.” ― Philip K. Dick

“This is a mournful discovery. 1)Those who agree with you are insane 2)Those who do not agree with you are in power.” ― Philip K. Dick, VALIS

“A man is an angel that has gone deranged.” ― Philip K. Dick

[DIY] How Much HTML and CSS Should You Know To Develop? by Mnemonic in Internet

Ah I see, when I started searching a lot of tutorials popped up, so just put 'psd to html' in your favorite search engine and pick your tutorial. All of the ones I looked through get into the the html and css part at first glance pretty well.

https://www.w3schools.com/ is a great overall resource for html and css, for looking things up.

I also found this article: https://blog.teamtreehouse.com/psd-to-html-is-dead but that's more of an 'if you're interested and have nothing to do' kind of read ;)

Goodluck!

convert PSD to a real website

Okay, so what exactly do you mean by that?

  • A picture split-up into a header, sidebar, footer. Like an oldstyle website.

  • uploading and using the psd as image file?

  • something else?

Because maybe I can find a nice tutorial. HTML, CSS and even Javascript is pretty simple to read and thinker with BUT getting on real production level is something else.
