My pleasure! Full disclosure: I only know the security cutoffs for x86 CPUs. If you (or anyone else reading this) have the security goodies on ARM or PowerPC processors, I would love to know. ARM especially; they're becoming super common (standard choice for phones and tablets) and I haven't been able to find any info aside from people just assuming they're clean.

While it's not a permanent solution, it's still possible to get a secure machine all the way from the metal to the programs. They're older hardware, but there's a cottage industry librebooting lenovo laptops from the X00 series (most commonly t400s). Pop a deblobbed Linux distro (trisquel is most popular) on it and there you go. You've got a machine with a fully-neutered intel management engine, secure and open-source firmware, and an operating system with no binary blobs. It won't be much use for gaming or video editing since its processor will be super weak by modern standards, but it should work for most purposes.

If you want the most grunt you can get on a semi-secure machine, start with an AMD "Piledriver" series processor (the last AMD architecture before they started backdooring them). I would suggest the FX-8350; it's the strongest secure processor that's commonly available. Then you need to assemble each other component, seeing how much you trust each one (OP's list is helpful for this).

Hopefully this comment is helps someone.

I don't see anything edgy about my comment. If that's how it'll be though, can you change rule 3 back to reddit's version?

I'll be lurking, and I'll be back to man the meme cannons in 2020. I respect you and your mission. Right now though, i'm overcome with disappointment. Goodbye.

That's nuts. There is literally no reason to weight votes. They don't need to go out and buy a new display if a post's like counter goes a digit longer than expected. What's unforgivable though, is that whatever rules they're using aren't public.

Democrats say we should chop off one of our fingers every five years and feed them to birds. Republicans think that's crazy, and we should only do it once every ten years.

Chilopodes [S] 1 point ago

I hope so. If not, I'm sure the admins will fix it quickly.

Different meanings of equal. All citizens have the same legal rights (or at least should). Some individuals are better than others.

Chilopodes [S] 2 points ago

That's pretty much perfect. Point 2 disqualifies most welfare leeches, but point 5 allows old people on the legacy programs to keep voting provided they've produced a sizeable family.

A couple questions:

Would active-service count for point 1 before the 4-year mark?

How would having lots more women in the military work? Coed units on the front line are asking for trouble; men will protect women to the detriment of the mission and no training is going to change that.

I'm sure we do, but the mods (now admins) won't tell us. That's nothing against them though; you can't telegraph your moves. This site was apparently developed for the better part of a year in complete secrecy before it went live.

Maybe not bitcoin. I'm thinking implanted RFID tags. You can't get a credit card without an RFID tag in it anymore, and I believe Sweden already has a pilot program implanting the things (in the name of "convenience").

Oh my b. It's a specific reference?

Not knowing that, it looked like you had comically missed the point.

Have a nice day.

I read the article. She touches on some good points, but either stops short or doesn't understand why this is happening.

Oh, this'll be good

Edit. It was good. Didn't actually look like antifa though, they never work alone.

Ha, I've done that. I have a Puerto Rican friend and sometimes do that to piss him off. He's based though so it's all in good fun. It's a little funny how much different Hispanic groups hate each other, though.

Nice name! Perks of being an early adopter. Is it "Jee-zus" or "Hay-soos"?

And the part of the 14th that's been corrupted to give us anchor babies, and the 17th, and the 23rd, and the 26th, and the 27th.

The 19th amendment itself is fine, but unfinished. The draft is the price of universal male suffrage, and there should be some duty associated with universal female suffrage.

Hopefully, once the exodus is complete, the mods will shut down the border. Then we just root out the illegals already here.

I got down-voted for saying such things yesterday though, so it's either an unpopular opinion (it was compared to red flag laws) or we're already full of cucks/glowies.

The reason that works is because there's a kernel of truth in Jewish conspiracies. Discourse can break down over "it's Jews" vs "it's THE Jews". It's not hard to see that Jews are overwhelmingly over-represented amongst the enemies of civilization. But I still believe that the average Jewish person you see on the street is basically a Christian with a funny little hat.

I strongly suspect it's easier for a black person to get over being called a white supremacist than a white person.

Chilopodes [S] 1 point ago

I dunno how far you can go in that direction on this site either. But since the new rule 3 has a carve-out for the truth, you can probably make such posts/comments as long as you're factual and not frothing at the mouth.

Macedonian, I think? But only for a few minutes. Side o beef said that in a kuru-haze and quickly went back on-script.

As far as I know, it's most common current use is "coolie hat", the SE Asian conical hat.
