mateythere really isnt enough science (or scientific attitude) in the free software movementApr 18 01:33
mateyyou dont need to throw ethics away to have science. you can start with the 4 freedoms as a requirement, for exampleApr 18 01:33
mateyi think its clear enough that if you dont have the 4 freedoms its not free softwareApr 18 01:33

matey"if i had a million dollars, if i had a million dollars, i would buy you a k-car / a nice reliant automobile!"Apr 18 01:35
mateybut i mean, the copyleft / permissive thing is based on theory, and the theory should be something we could test and settle once and for allApr 18 01:36
mateythis is just the most obvious example (to me) there are other examples where science could help free softwareApr 18 01:36
mateyive heard plenty of theories, and theyre worth consideringApr 18 01:37
mateywe also have a lot more data than we did in 1997Apr 18 01:37
mateybut it would be nice to have a clearer understanding of the actual effects of gpl vs 3-clause bsd for exampleApr 18 01:38
mateybecause calling it a "pushover" license not only glosses over the intentions of some projects using it (which isnt really about what the phrase "pushover license" implies)Apr 18 01:39
mateyyou might get more people writing a project LIKE GNU under a permissive licenseApr 18 01:39
mateyi hate this lack of science on both sides of the argument-- its ASSUMED that people contribute more under a permissive licenseApr 18 01:40
mateyid like to see this settled with facts and a broad and detailed assessmentApr 18 01:40

mateyall my research builds several themes together, so any findings i come up with are going to be along several different axesApr 18 01:44
mateyfor example, my data will be useless to anyone who wants to see whether any of this applies to github, since im interested almost exclusively in things that ARENT on githubApr 18 01:44
mateyif its on github, youve already fucked upApr 18 01:45
mateysolution: move from github Apr 18 01:45
mateyuntil they do that, im not very interested Apr 18 01:45
mateypeople show me new software. its on github. i mostly pretend it doesnt existApr 18 01:45
mateyi spent 10 fucking years getting away from microsoftApr 18 01:46

mateyproject on github: "we care about your freedom SORT OF"Apr 18 01:47
mateyyoure open source, i get it (gnu project)Apr 18 01:47
mateythe direction copyleft is headed in worries me a little bitApr 18 01:48
mateyon the one hand, theres (possibly fud) about how its too weak in any hands but those who wrote it to defend itApr 18 01:48
mateymaking it next to useless Apr 18 01:48
mateyon the other, theres "hope" about making it so anyone can defend it...Apr 18 01:48
mateysounds a like a good thing!Apr 18 01:49
mateybut wait, copyright trolls are a thingApr 18 01:49
mateywhat if microsoft can defend gpl code it didnt write?Apr 18 01:49
mateyand forbid you from using it...Apr 18 01:49
mateyoh, youve been pretty good about including source code, but copyright is nasty, maybe theres some problem with something andApr 18 01:50
mateyah, now a lawsuitApr 18 01:50
mateyif it wasnt for corporations like microsoft this would be an absurdist concernApr 18 01:50
mateyif it werent for nasty little shits like copyright trolls this would be an absurdist concernApr 18 01:50
mateyi dont think its absurd at allApr 18 01:50
mateythis makes me wonder if permissive isnt a little safer at guaranteeing freedom 0 (note please that part of the reason rms went with copyleft is that he got fucked out of his own work using permissive-- back when these issues were MUCH less familiar to the public)Apr 18 01:52

schestowitz-TRSomeH4x0r: clownflare is a dirty bombApr 18 09:16

mateybut the two reaslly good reasons are:Apr 18 09:16
schestowitz-TRso you know they will become evil, very evil, soonApr 18 09:16
matey1. the POINT of course, is that yes, its basically everythingApr 18 09:16
schestowitz-TRnot sure if they'll start charging everyone or something worseApr 18 09:17
matey2. if im trying to recommend the LEAST github-encumbered software, that information helps quantify how encumbered it is or isntApr 18 09:17
mateyor if youre trying to predict the projects most likely to move there soon (as projects that have a lot of gh deps often move there eventually)Apr 18 09:17
mateybasically "theyre on gh or theyre not" is not very fine grainedApr 18 09:18
schestowitz-TRit'll blow upApr 18 09:18
schestowitz-TRit already doesApr 18 09:18
schestowitz-TRbut too slowlyApr 18 09:18
schestowitz-TRif Microsoft tries to manipulate too much, staff and projects walk awayApr 18 09:18
mateyid ask if youre referring to clownflare or gh but since you make the same argument for basically anything negative, theres little pintApr 18 09:18
schestowitz-TRif not, they carry on losing moneyApr 18 09:18
mateyat which point any project that isnt actively maintained could simply disappear forever.Apr 18 09:19
schestowitz-TRclownflare and GH are similar in tihis regardApr 18 09:19
schestowitz-TRthey lose moneyApr 18 09:19
schestowitz-TRthey offer a fake, worthless, "service"Apr 18 09:19
schestowitz-TRand people do not really need themApr 18 09:19
schestowitz-TRand if they start charging, people will leaveApr 18 09:19

activelowif the fontconfig/gperf dependency can be repaired (not sure how yet), then GTK2 (or 3) can remain, including netsurf and various other goodiesApr 18 17:17

activelowgot an idea how many updates are necessary if c++ dependencies are exluded? rarely any in years, which is exactly what i want.Apr 18 17:23
activelowand, if GNOME/GTK are wrecked (systemd/dbus/opengl dependencies), at least some ultra-conservative stable system can remainApr 18 17:25
activelowsome other components are a headache still, which may or may not be necessary: ghostscript/LaTex/texliveApr 18 17:26
activelowbecause, the idea is, such a system _must_ remain capable for scientific work and authoringApr 18 17:26
activelowi see Knuth released his original TeX variant with an incompatible license; i'll know soon enough, if it is sufficient for a markdown/tex/html authoring workflowApr 18 17:27
activelowpostscript is probably gone, yet printing onto 9pin matrix printer wouldn't require postscriptApr 18 17:28
activelowi must admit, GTK2/3 are desireable, yet as said i have no idea yet, to easily cope with gperf (and who knows what else will be hitting other c++ dependencies, such as cmake)Apr 18 17:29

DaemonFCBut the nice thing about the Lacrosse or Grand Marquis is they were built on top of the Impala or Crown Victoria.Apr 18 22:18
DaemonFCSo you can service the luxury car with mass market parts.Apr 18 22:18
DaemonFCCan't do that with most luxury cars so you are screwed.Apr 18 22:19
DaemonFCThe Sable was an upmarket Taurus, and so on.Apr 18 22:19
DaemonFCIf you get a luxury car, make sure they built it off something mass market so there's like, opportunities to dig into the aftermarket and leverage scale.Apr 18 22:19
DaemonFCThat way you can keep it going for a long time without any $1,200 MARISOL wheel hub bearings.Apr 18 22:20
DaemonFC$600 an axle MARISOL brake pads.Apr 18 22:20
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, Even at the Chevy dealer, which is terribly overpriced for brake pads, it's $249 an axle, and a wheel hub bearing is like $400.Apr 18 22:21
DaemonFCAnd so you can take your Buick there and just tell them to service it there if you want, or an independent, and get it for even less.Apr 18 22:21

DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, Hell, fuck, you can take the Buick to Midas and get $99 an axle brake pads.Apr 18 22:22
DaemonFCThey won't be top of the line, but they'll work okay.Apr 18 22:22
DaemonFCCan't do that with a Beemer.Apr 18 22:22
DaemonFCThey have to be BMW brake pads.Apr 18 22:22
DaemonFCIf your mechanic does the job, the only thing you save on is labor.Apr 18 22:22
DaemonFCHe still has to go to a dealer and buy BMW pads.Apr 18 22:22
DaemonFCSo he goes to their parts department and BMW gets you anway.Apr 18 22:23
DaemonFC*anywayApr 18 22:23
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, Then there's the $300 BMW oil change.Apr 18 22:23
DaemonFCAnd so a bunch of BMW victims noticed BMW using Castrol synthetic and go "Why the fuck am I paying $300 for this guy to pour Castrol in?".Apr 18 22:23
DaemonFCSo they go to Jiffy Lube and have them pour in Castrol Syntec, which is a synthetic oil meant for American cars, and it went ahead and sludged up their BMW engine.Apr 18 22:24
DaemonFCAnd they didn't save much money then.Apr 18 22:24
DaemonFCYou can use Euro Castrol in an American car if you want to.Apr 18 22:25
DaemonFCIt won't hurt anything as long as the viscosity is correct.Apr 18 22:25
DaemonFCBut you can't use cheaper synthetic oils meant for an American car in a BMW.Apr 18 22:25

DaemonFCJiffy Lube talked this guy I was dating into some dumbass "engine flush" procedure.Apr 18 22:29
DaemonFCAnd after they did it and charged him $100, he could not add oil fast enough to the engine.Apr 18 22:29
DaemonFCAnd I said, "Your van is a Chrysler and it somehow made it to 375,000 miles, God knows how, without any trouble, and you thought pouring harsh chemicals in it was going to improve something?".Apr 18 22:30
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, Actually, out of all the things the squealing could have been today, I got off relatively light.Apr 18 22:31
DaemonFCThe only cheaper part it could have been was the idler pulley.Apr 18 22:31
DaemonFCEverything else is like alternator, air conditioner compressor, water pump....Apr 18 22:32
DaemonFCYou need to make those expensive parts happy by not killing them with cheaper parts that you're not servicing.Apr 18 22:32
DaemonFCLike, bad batteries will kill an alternator by overworking it.Apr 18 22:32
DaemonFCBad brake fluid will eventually corrode everything.Apr 18 22:32
DaemonFCAnd the manufacturer's don't help anything, schestowitz-TR Apr 18 22:33
DaemonFCThey don't mention brake fluid changes at all.Apr 18 22:33
DaemonFCThey're deleting references to "service automatic transmission",.Apr 18 22:33

DaemonFCPlastic and ripping half the car apart to get to it.Apr 18 22:47
DaemonFCThe ultimate driving machine!Apr 18 22:48
DaemonFC*May be in shop on alternating days.Apr 18 22:48
DaemonFCMinceR, The alternator looks newer than everything else in the engine compartment.Apr 18 22:49
DaemonFCMy guess is someone has changed that recently and nobody logged it.Apr 18 22:49
DaemonFCThere's a couple of "Inspect engine electrical components" in the carfax history, but that can mean anything.Apr 18 22:50
