@alva When it's summer again, you should really try actual rock climbing. It's great because it combines nature with climbing. And anything goes, because there are no colored holds, just grab what you can get your hands on. (or rather feet, since they are more important anyways).

@alva For me it's kind of the opposite. I much prefer climbing longer routes. I don't like the repetition of the same small steps that you get from bouldering. Kind of like preferring running over sprinting.

I just found out that a.out is not actually a.out but ELF. I feel tricked.

I have one (not quad, but dual core) and I kind of disagree. Yeah, you can get Linux running on there reasonably well, but is it worth it other than "because I can"? Not really in my opinion. These things are heavy, use **a lot** of power (no pun intended) and don't compare to the performance of modern x86_64 systems. Even those that are approved by the FSF.

@alva I have one of these calculators from school. I should probably start experimenting around with it. And it is ABSOLUTELY CRAZY how much money they charge for that thing. It's essentially a CPU that is slower than a toaster, a display with almost no pixels, some plastic and an OS that hasn't been drastically updated for more than the last 10 years. I would be surprised if it cost them more than 5€ to 10€ to produce, but they sell it for over 100€.

@alva The worst thing in my opinion is that many of these electron apps don't even require electron but run totally fine in a regular browser as well. If that is a possibility, I always run it in the browser because it is less outdated and has less security features disabled and has less memory overhead since it runs in a shared instance with other apps/websites.

In the meantime: Why not help me with finding better wordlists (less obscene and garbage words) for fsmaxb.github.io/correcthorseb

What I was wondering recently: If people are so bad at thinking up good passwords, why not just generate good ones for them and display them as possible candidate? (But definitely not send them via email).

@Wolthera I recommend uBlock origin. Apart from being an ad/malware blocker it contains a manual content blocking mode and can get rid of overlays that block the view.

@davidrevoy Works. But I'm not very representative since I always update to the newest browser version. One Caveat though: I had to tell uMatrix to allow videos. But I much prefer a video over GIF.

@FSMaxB exactly. But I see that quote being used as justification for basically not caring about performance at all, or even doing things that are clearly terrible for performance.

@alva In other words: Don't do "clever" optimisations without them being necessary.
