EU withheld a study that shows piracy doesn't hurt sales

engadget.com/2017-09-22-eu-sup

In 2013, the European Commission ordered a €360,000 ($430,000) study on how piracy affects sales of music, books, movies and games in the EU. However, it never ended up showing it to the public except for one cherry-picked section. That's possibly because the study concluded that there was no evidence that piracy affects copyrighted sales, and in the case of video games, might actually help them.

The study: cdn.netzpolitik.org/wp-upload/

You have probably seen this, but I have to throw this out there.

Hilarious. True, though.

If we think that the general public care consider ideological reasons for choosing their Operating Systems, see the example of Pringles snacks.

The tubes aren't practically recyclable*, but people keep
a) buying them and
b) then chucking them in the recycling because they
1) actually don't really care
2) ignorant of the facts
3) don't see any side-effects of doing it.

*If you want to recycle pringles cans, you need to use a proprietary recycling point. and probably drive there too.

When you talk to a stranger at a public location (like a skate park, for instance), are you supposed to introduce yourself?

Specific use-case: I asked a skater for some tips, he answered my questions, I tried some stuff, he gave feedback. Then we never spoke again. I'll see him at the skate park again, but I'm not sure whether we're, like, friends now, or how it works. I don't feel like names are necessary in this interaction, but I don't want it to be weird, either.

Privacy is a fundamental human right. Every software and company need to respect that!

The Dutch Data Protection Authority advises Dutch schools to stop using Google Workspaces as it is in conflict with the GDPR. Luckily, European, GDPR compliant alternatives exist!

This sample must be studied in a univerity!
The detailed process of transofrmation C source code to the binary execution module for the operating system consist of 4 step (utilities) and 5 files on disk:

1) hello.c - C source with macros
2) hello.i - text file with expanded macros but still C code
3) hello.s - a text file in Assembly language
4) hello.o - binary object code with instructions to the processor, but offsets there are not tied to memory areas relative to other object files and libraries.
5) hello - a binary executable file, with all object objects inside (maybe static libraries), ready for execution with the loading of linked dynamic libraries (*.so files in your OS distribution).

The 4 steps of compiling are:
1) *.c -> (preprocessing: cpp)-> *.i
2) *.i->(translating: gcc)->*.s
3) *.s->(assembing: as)->*.o
4) *.o->(linking: ld)-> module_to_run

@klaatu @PresGas @kensanata we have a not very active #rpg room on tilde.chat. Maybe more people would breathe some life there.

@kensanata Also @klaatu has created a #matrix room for dnd talk that has been pretty friendly. With all the strangeness happening with the IRC-verse I have been looking at other places "Just In Case" ™️
