Debian's Dilemma

  • Given that I've installed it around 2006 from a CD disk, they've fixed a lot of things since then.

    It was the time when spending a week to just launch some graphical applications was something to boast about. Some would think people even made it harder on purpose to filter out Windows normies. Thankfully, sanity prevailed, after those same hax0r kids went to high-paying engineering jobs and had to deliver a working product on a fixed deadline. Now you insert your USB drive, press Next - Next - Next - Root password - Reboot, and have your FreeBSD installation working out of the box and ready to use in 20 minutes. Boring!

    2G, 3G, 4G, 5G mobile data made some sense as it represents generational leaps in the technology itself but then Xfinity wants to advertise "10g" internet...
  • Kind of, yeah.

    There are WiFi setups that can cover as far as 10 km range, which is firmly inside 4G territory, with a speed to match.

  • Yup. 5G is LTE with more frequency bands.

    Just slap one more antenna into your phone, that's how we're increasing network speed.

  • ITU defined 4G in 2008 as wireless connectivity with speed of 100 megabits per second for mobile users and 1 gigabit per second for stationary users.

    LTE never achieved such speeds. It did not stop mobile operators from calling their service 4G.

    ITU since then revised their definition to lower the required network speed.

    5G was supposed to have network speeds of 10 gigabits per second. ITU however wisened up and are just defining it as 'fifth-generation wireless', because the mobile operators will butcher the definition anyway.

  • It's all mostly a marketing speak.

    LTE is a proper name for the latest flavour of a wireless connectivity steandard. It simply means 'long-term evolution', because naming it after the actual underlying algorithms would be 'orthogonal frequency-division with multiple access' was too long even for nerds who created that standard, and also it uses simpler frequency-division with multiple access for transmitting data from your phone to the cell tower, so the actual proper name would be 'OFDMA uplink FDMA downlink'.

    And 5G is still mostly LTE, just with extra radio channels and an optional millimeter frequency support.

    There were similarly several 3G technologies - HSDPA, HSPA+, DC-HSDPA, DC-HSDPA w/MIMO, each offering a better speed, but that would be confusing, so the operators just named everything as 3G.

    ‘They are among us’: Russia’s terrifyingly effective poisoning operation
  • There's a really simple and effective solution. Deny entry to any russians with no long-term reason to stay.

    FSB agents on a tourist visa? Deny.

    Military-haircut men looking to open 'high-tech business' to buy electronic components and drone parts? Deny.

    A young family of four fit guys looking to visit their grandma on a weekend? Deny.

    Mail-in russian wife moving to live with her Spanish husband? I guess that should be allowed.

    Newest premium Android twin stick shooters

    I've alrealy played all versions of Space Marshals, Tesla vs Lovecraft, Tesla Force, Jydge, Crimsonland, Grind Infinity, Solomon Keep, PewPew, and Vampire Survivors (although it's not twin stick but close enough).

    Are there any new twin stick shooters, preferrably something I can pay for once and without IAP going up to $100?

    Cast phone screen automatically

    Is there a way to cast my phone screen to TV using some kind of Tasker plugin? I'm using screen cast to view one specific app on a big TV, but the screen mirroring stops whenever the wifi blinks, and I'd like it to reconnect automatically.
