A new petition calls on the Ukrainian government to ban TikTok, arguing that it poses a national security threat given China’s cozy relationship with Russia. It’s already garnered about half of the signatures it needs to be considered by lawmakers.

Oh, no, very cool.

> it's not like there are plenty on RISC-V laptops already

You might be surprised: there's a Milky-V that's pin-compatible with the RPi CM-4, so a lot of the places you could plug a CM-4 work. Like this guy got it to work in a Turing Pi 2 (FSE's currently living on a TPi2): https://feldspaten.org/2023/10/27/RISC-V-in-a-Turing-Pi-2/ . There are Pi laptop kits that are basically a CM-4 carrier board with battery/keyboard/screen/battery, right, and I imagine that you could get a MilkyV to run in a lot of them.

> it won't spread the community thin

Oh, I'm not really worried about that kind of thing.

#Belarus opposition published a video from one of the Belarus border guard centres where they instruct a new group of migrants on the border storming tactics. The guard instructs the men in Russian, which is then translated into English. He tells them they will be equipped with knives and advises to hit all “unprotected parts” of the #Poland border guards, such as neck, armpits etc. Video in Russian and English, with English subtitles was published by Belarusian opposition news agency NEXTA.

> Even though he knew about OpenBSD's sudo alternative, “doas”, he mentions that it is still a SUID binary. The issue with those is that they feature a large attack surface that can easily be exploited

lennart using the phrase "large attack surface" is the largest pot calling the kettle black in linux history :blobcatgooglybadumtss:

A lot of people have followed me in the past month, so in 2 posts, here's a summary of what I think and why I'm here.

American society is increasingly dominated by the authoritarian left & authoritarian right. People communicate with insults instead of reasons. Many reject the value of open, vigorous debate.

I say that people should live together by reason and good will, not force & fear. I reject supernatural claims, group identity, and authority to command others as a basis for society. 1/2
