@yogthos P.S. With that in mind, it seems pointless to blame "the markets". — Given the social dynamics and attitudes, leading to the formation and sustainability of the markets, a central planning likely wouldn't produce any better outcomes; and the results of the votes seem to be in agreement with the profitability of the businesses.

@niconiconi yeah that's a huge regression, sadly…
The service manuals of old professional equipment are truly amazing, the schematics are shown in three different abstraction levels, every single connection is shown, waveforms at 100 different test points are drawn, every single component is listed, with step-by-step test and calibration guidelines. You can almost remove everything from the board and put it back together with a service manual.
Something that today's consumers can only dream of...
I am so fucking god damned tired of constantly being someone's fucking ALPHA tester thanks in large part to the fragility of dynamic linking.
The database backfill program I was working on apparently **CAN ONLY** run on my personal laptop, because, you know, installing it on a cloud server just totally **HAS** to break that one tiiiiiiiiiiiiny little dependency that the entire house of fucking cards has to depend on.
I still find it faintly incredible that no group of scientists has gotten together and just made a damn set of free textbooks to cover the whole standard curriculum of their field. For uni physics, you'd need, roughly speaking and allowing for bits of overlap:
1. Classical mechanics
2. Single-variable calculus
4. Multivariable and vector calculus
5. Statistical physics
6. Quantum physics
7. Special relativity
8. Data analysis (a text most likely used as reference in a lab course)
9. Differential equations
10. Linear algebra
Education reform went haring off into MOOCs without really contemplating the possibility of making better resources for more traditional in-person teaching.

Not much really. But feel free to ask questions, give advice, and/or reuse.
I have compiled my official mail provider recommendations. With any provider, you must always use your own domain.
Good: Down to earth. Unlimited domains, storage, etc. Full marks for philosophical, ethical, and technical merits.
Bad: Difficult to set up. UI is a bit confusing. Advertises itself in your signature in the free plan. Apparently blocks VPN and Tor users (I have reached out to them about this).
Note: Was unable to evaluate their webmail
Good: excellent PGP support and good on other security fronts as well
Bad: requires google captcha, does not handle plaintext as well as I'd like, german leaks through into the english interface sometimes, too scatterbrained
Good: Goes above and beyond in support for various standards and protocols, handles plaintext email very well. Lots of good options for account security.
Bad: rough UI
migadu is hard to set up but is the best all-around offering. If you're security concious, mailbox.org has the best PGP support and good all-around security; runbox.com has good account security options but no built-in PGP support.
Evaluated but not recommended: disroot, fastmail, posteo.de, poste.io, protonmail, tutanota, riseup, cock.li, teknik, megacorp mail (gmail, outlook, etc)
Is my interest field to broad, or am I simply dumb?

@vertigo Your verilog checklist is strange to me, but I love reading it😄
