  • LDP is a conservative party, with members ranging from centre-right, far-right to ultra-conservative. Don’t be fooled by the name of the political party. Japan is notorious for it’s 1955 System - also known as the “one-and-a-half” party state. And about the imperialist comment - as is obvious from the party dominance - most of the LDP members deny, and don’t teach their own history to their citizens. History revisionism is the tool of imperialism - and no one does it as well as the Japanese government.

    That’s the remnants of old British English, which probably preserved one if the features of Latin. It means “also/and”.

    So penetration-cum-blast round means penetration-and-blast round. On second thought, this really doesn’t fix how wrong it sounds.

    My cousin sister lost all her files to a malicious script on her pendrive, and I am fixing it right now (at the time of writing this). The unreliable pile of crap called OneDrive didn’t even back up properly, and well, Windows has gone so bad, it’s terrible,laggy and slow on a Ryzen 5800U with 8GB of RAM. I wish she was open to learning Linux desktop environments.


  • I guess you should look for something like a old Lenovo ThinkCentre or a Dell Optiplex. Pick something with 4 or more physical cores, add 16GB to 32GB of RAM, 1-2TB of space and you should be good to go? Just hope that you don’t broadcast your own links to other folks, or your server won’t be able to take the huge influx of network traffic.

    Btw, I’ve heard that eBay (the site) protects your against scammers. Now, I’ve personally never used eBay, but I’ll soon be, to get myself a used ThinkPad for cheap.


  • I am curious about what you’re trying to self-host. If it’s something as simple as a static website, you can simply use a cheap, secondhand Raspberry Pi? Maybe, even a cheap RISC-V SBC, or an ESP-32 web server?

    If it’s anything similar to a substitute mirror server for Nix/Guix, you’ll be needing lots of storage.Now, if its a build farm you’re talking about, then I’m afraid you’ll have to spend a good amount.

    eBay has a lot of cheap stuff from the USA. Including the shipping charges (which I’m assuming also includes duty), you can save almost around ₹5-10k.

    I hate them, because university rankings have kind if become a neo-caste system. Ivy League universities are elitist brain-rot. Sure, they house great minds, but the sham that is meritocracy will crumble if everyone in this world had the privilege to start from the same line one the race track.

    Just think of it - is advancement of human civilization a dick-measuring contest, or do we prepared folks to be better professionals to excel in the respective field they’ve chosen?

    Well, I am not really sure if you should be celebrating MIT, just because Richard Stallman has graduated from there. That’s like saying - we should bomb the fuck out of Harvard for producing graduated that have bought terror in this world through human rights violation of varying degrees?
