Libtorrent has just released version 2.0, which is a potential game-changer. The BitTorrent library, which is used by popular clients including uTorrent Web, Deluge, and qBittorrent, adds support for the new BitTorrent v2 protocol specification. This opens the door to various new features and introduces a new torrent format, which creates a separate swarm.

libtorrent-logoMillions of people use BitTorrent every day but only a few know all the ins-and-outs of how it works.

Meanwhile, an even smaller group is actively involved in shaping the future of the file-sharing protocol.

BitTorrent was first made public by inventor Bram Cohen nearly two decades ago. While it was swiftly embraced by the masses, the protocol itself was far from perfect. Over the years many new features were added, including DHT, UDP trackers, peer-exchange, and support for streaming.

libfederation ?

начну пожалуй с небольшого вступления.
федеративные сети у меня вызвали больше технический интерес, было интересно попробовать стянуть себе контэнта с разных серверов, проиндексировать и поискать в нем, можно сказать идея провалилась, т.к. весь существующий софт довольно кривой и имеет разную степень несовместимости между собой, большая часть этого софта еще и жутко тормозит или написана на языках изначально плохо подходящих для таких задач, но на удивление меня почемуто эта тема заинтересовала, да я уже знаю что @Iron Bug уже пишет свою реализацию activitypub протокола и клиента на си, но мне кажется это не совсем правильный подход, во первых с моё скромное мнение такое что activitypub вероятно не лучший протокол для федерации, мне более симпатичны идея стоящие за zot (hubzilla), во вторых лучше пойти путем близким к тому которым идет pleroma - отдельно бэкэнд, отдельно фронтэнд, но в случае плеромы, она это умеет только для себя, я же вижу это как отдельную библиотеку в которой будут реализованы различные протоколы федерации, на данный момент имеет смысл реализовать activitypub, zot и возможно diaspora, либа должна быть на чем то быстром и эфективном, если буду делать я, то это наверно будет c/c++, можно так же рассмаотреть erlang (но я его не умею, но вот софт на нем впечатляет своей эфективностью и стабильностью, и нет я сейчас не о pleroma, а скорее о ejabberd который использую очеь много лет в разных сетях своих и не только)
что касается функционала, помимо эфективной реализации протоколов, нужно унифицированное удобное апи работы с либой, для того чтобы было достаточно просто делать фронтэнд и в целом использовать либу вобще не нагружаясь вопросами сериализации/дэсериализации и сети, нужна ли релазиация работы с бд в самой либе не уверен, надо подумать, возможно так будет проще сделать сериализацию /дэсериализацию, главное не перестараться и не получить в итоге монстра.

//automated translation

I'll start with a little introduction.
Federated networks aroused more technical interest in me, it was interesting to try to pull content from different servers, index and search in it, one might say the idea failed, because all existing software is quite crooked and has varying degrees of incompatibility with each other, most of this software is also terribly slow or is written in languages ​​that are initially poorly suited for such tasks, but surprisingly for some reason this topic interested me, I already know that @Iron Bug already writes its implementation of the activitypub protocol and client in C, but it seems to me that this is not quite the right approach, firstly, with my humble opinion, activitypub is probably not the best protocol for federation, I prefer the idea behind zot (hubzilla) , secondly, it is better to go the way close to that of pleroma - a separate backend, a separate frontend, but in the case of a pleroma, she can only do this for herself, but I see it as a separate library in which various federation protocols will be implemented, at the moment it has meaning to implement activitypub, zot and possibly diaspora, library must be implemented on some fast and efficient language, if I do it, it will probably be c / c ++ , you can also consider erlang (but I don't know how to do it, but the software on it impresses with its efficiency and stability, and no, I'm not talking about pleroma now, but rather about ejabberd, which I have been using for many years in different networks of my own and not only)
As for the functionality, in addition to the effective implementation of the protocols, you need a unified convenient api for working with either, so that it is enough to just make a frontend and, in general, use the lib without being burdened with issues of serialization / deserialization and the network, is it necessary to implement work with the database in the lib itself I'm sure you need to think, maybe it will be easier to make serialization / deserialization this way, the main thing is not to overdo it and not end up with a monster.

и да, ещё в Федивёрсе есть проблема релеев. или агрегаторов информации. раньше они были, но потом стухли. потому что нагрузка велика, а выгоды никакой особо нет. поэтому всякие там "подписки на темы" и массовые рассылки становятся проблемой. я этого не понимаю, но вижу, что люди этого требуют. я вижу а этом только базис для спаммеров. и я больше ориентируюсь на подписку на конкретных людей и на теги. чтобы не было ничего лишнего в ленте. но некоторые-таки наоброт любят побольше лишнего 😀 однако факт, что такая проблема есть. сюда же относится проблема "групп". между серверами это организовать довольно проблематично.

EFF to FinCEN: Stop Pushing For More Financial Surveillance


#hash(0x28c58d8) #hash(0x28c5a28)

Today, EFF submitted comments to the Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) opposing the agency’s proposal for new regulations of cryptocurrency transactions. As we explain in our comments, financial records can be deeply personal and revealing, containing a trove of sensitive information about people’s personal lives, beliefs, and affiliations. Regulations regarding such records must be constructed with careful consideration regarding their effect on privacy, speech and innovation.

Even in an increasingly digital world, people have a right to engage in private financial transactions.

FinCEN’s proposed rule is neither deliberative nor thoughtful. As we’ve written before, this rule—which would require regulated businesses to keep records of cryptocurrency transactions over ,000 USD and to report cryptocurrency transactions over ,000 to the government—would force cryptocurrency exchanges and other money services businesses to expand their collection of identity data far beyond what they must currently do. In fact, it wouldn’t only require these businesses to collect information about their own customers, but also the information of anyone who transacts with those customers using their own cryptocurrency wallets.

In addition to the concerns we’ve already raised, EFF believes the proposed regulation as written would undermine the civil liberties of cryptocurrency users, give the government access to troves of sensitive financial data beyond what is contemplated by the regulation, and have unintended consequences for certain blockchain technology—such as smart contracts and decentralized exchanges—that could chill innovation.

The agency has not provided nearly enough time to consider all of these risks properly. And, by announcing this proposal with a short comment period over the winter holiday, FinCEN’s process did not allow many members of the public and experts the necessary opportunity to provide feedback on the potentially enormous consequences of this regulation.

That’s why EFF is urging the agency not to implement this proposal. We are instead asking that FinCEN meet directly with those affected by this regulation, including innovators, technology users, and civil liberties advocates to understand the effect it will have. And we’re calling on the agency to significantly extend the comment period to a minimum of 60 days, and offer additional time for comments after any adjustments are made to the proposed regulation.

This Rushed Proposal Threatens Financial Privacy, Speech, and Innovation

Even in an increasingly digital world, people have a right to engage in private financial transactions. These protections are crucial. We’ve seen protestors and dissidents in Hong Kong, Belarus, and Nigeria make deliberate choices to use cash or cryptocurrencies to protect themselves against surveillance. The ability to transact anonymously allows people to engage in political activities, protected in the U.S. by the First Amendment, which may be sensitive or controversial. Anonymous transactions should be protected whether those transactions occur in the physical world with cash or online.

The proposal would require businesses to collect far more information than is necessary to achieve the agency’s policy goals. The proposed regulation purports to require cryptocurrency transaction data to be provided to the government only when the amount of the transactions exceed a particular threshold. However, because of the nature of public blockchains, the regulation would actually result in the government gaining troves of data about cryptocurrency users far beyond what the regulation contemplates.

Bitcoin addresses are pseudonymous, not anonymous—and the Bitcoin blockchain is a publicly viewable ledger of all transactions between these addresses. That means that if you know the name of the user associated with a particular Bitcoin address, you can glean information about all of their Bitcoin transactions that use that address. In other words, the proposed regulation would provide the government with access to a massive amount of data beyond just what the regulation purports to cover.

That scale of such collection introduces considerable risk. Databases of this size can become a honeypot of information that tempts bad actors, or those who might misuse it beyond its original intended use. Thousands of FinCEN’s own files have already been exposed to the public, making it clear that FinCEN’s security protocols are not adequate to prevent even large-scale leakage. This is, of course, not the first time that a sensitive government database has been leaked, mishandled, or otherwise breached. Over the past several weeks, the SolarWinds hack of U.S. government agencies has made headlines, and details are still emerging—and this is hardly the only example of a large-scale government hack.

There are also significant Fourth Amendment concerns. As we argue in our comments:
The proposed regulation violates the Fourth Amendment’s protections for individual privacy. Our society’s understanding of individual privacy and the legal doctrines surrounding that privacy are evolving. While 1970s-era court opinions held that consumers lose their privacy rights in the data they entrust with third parties, modern courts have become skeptical of these pre-digital decisions and have begun to draw different boundaries around our expectations of privacy. Acknowledging that our world is increasingly digital and that surveillance has become cheaper and more ubiquitous, the Supreme Court has begun to chip away at the third-party doctrine—the idea that an individual does not have a right to privacy in data shared with a third party. Some Supreme Court Justices have written that “it may be necessary to reconsider the premise that an individual has no reasonable expectation of privacy in information voluntarily disclosed to third parties.” In 1976, the Supreme Court pointed to the third-party doctrine in holding in
U.S. v. Miller
that the then-existing Bank Secrecy Act reporting requirements did not violate the Fourth Amendment.

Two developments make continued reliance on the third-party doctrine suspect, including as the source for regulations such as those contemplated here.

First, since the
decision, the government has greatly expanded the Bank Secrecy Act’s reach and its intrusiveness on individual financial privacy. Although the Supreme Court upheld the 1970s regulations in an as-applied challenge, Justice Powell, who authored
, was skeptical that more intrusive rules would pass constitutional muster. In
California Bankers Association v. Shultz
, Justice Powell wrote, “Financial transactions can reveal much about a person's activities, associations, and beliefs. At some point, governmental intrusion upon these areas would implicate legitimate expectations of privacy.” Government intrusion into financial privacy has dramatically increased since
, likely intruding on society’s legitimate expectations of privacy and more directly conflicting with the Fourth Amendment.

Second, since
, we have seen strong pro-privacy opinions issued from the U.S. Supreme Court in multiple cases involving digital technology that reject the government’s misplaced reliance on the third-party doctrine. This includes:
U.S. v. Jones
(2012), in which the Court found that law enforcement use of a GPS location device to continuously track a vehicle over time was a search under the Fourth Amendment;
Riley v. California
(2014), in which the Court held that warrantless search and seizure of the data on a cell phone upon arrest was unconstitutional; and
Carpenter v. U.S.
, in which the Court held that police must obtain a warrant before accessing cell site location information from a cell phone company. EFF is heartened to see these steps by the courts to better recognize that Americans do not sacrifice their privacy rights when interacting in our modern society, which is increasingly intermediated by corporations holding sensitive data. We believe this understanding of privacy can and should extend to our financial data. We urge FinCEN to heed the more nuanced understanding of privacy rights seen in modern court opinions, rather than anchoring its privacy thinking in precedents from a more analog time in America’s history.
Finally, we urge FinCEN to consider the potential chilling effects its regulation could have on developing technologies. FinCEN should be extremely cautious about crafting regulation that could interfere with the growing ecosystem of smart contract technology, including decentralized exchanges. We are in the very earliest days of the exploration of smart contract technology and decentralized exchanges. Just as it would have been an error to see the early Internet as merely an extension of the existing postal service, it is important not to view the risks and opportunities of these new technologies solely through the lens of financial services. The proposed regulation would not only chill experimentation in a field that could have many potential benefits for consumers, but would also prevent American users and companies from participating when those systems are deployed in other jurisdictions.

Because of the proposed regulation’s potential impact on the civil liberties interests of technology users and potential chilling effect on innovation across a broad range of technology sectors, we urge FinCEN not to implement this proposal as it stands. Instead, we ask that it does its due diligence to ensure that civil liberties experts, innovators, technology users, and the public have an opportunity to voice their concerns about the potential impact of the proposal.

nixos/guix filesystem for root

some time ago i have added #nix and #guix package managers as useful addition to my #exherbo based system, i am very pleased with this package managers, but i have noticed what some actions involving operations on a lot of small files, especially deletion cause large io performance degradation or even complete system hang on #xfs #filesystem on actions like gc or store optimization.
so i decided to switch from #xfs to #btrfs on this partition, i need something with reflinks (required for de-duplication in linux) because i want to have both nix and guix in one fs and also i want it in one fs because de-duplication is possible, compression is a nice bonus.

maybe someone can suggest something better ?, xfs does hang on small files deletion, but otherwise overall performance is nice, as for btrfs it is slow in general, had metadata leaks in past, incorrect and complicated free space information.

looks like f2fs have enough features (reflinks, compression), but in my previous test it was not ready for production use (had silent random data corruption).

EFF’s Work in State Legislatures: Year In Review 2020


EFF works in state legislatures across the country to fight for your civil liberties. This year, the pandemic upended the priorities and plans of every statehouse. But, with your support, EFF was able to quickly respond to surveillance threats, defend privacy, and counter the ways the pandemic made matters worse. Here are some highlights of our work—both in California and beyond.

Fighting Government Face Surveillance

After 2018 and 2019, which saw cities including San Francisco and Oakland passing municipal bans on government use of face recognition, many state lawmakers took notice of the growing momentum around this dangerous technology.

Unfortunately, not all of their ideas were good.

In California, EFF joined a broad coalition of civil liberties, civil rights, and labor advocates to oppose A.B. 2261, which proposed weak regulation of face surveillance. Modeled after a similar bill enacted in Washington state—a measure EFF and other civil liberties groups opposed—this bill threatened to normalize the increased use of face surveillance of Californians where they live and work. Our allies included the ACLU of California, Oakland Privacy, the California Employment Lawyers Association, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) of California, and California Teamsters. This wide-ranging group illustrated how many people recognize the threat of face surveillance to their communities.

We continue to work with lawmakers across the country who are pushing for bills that would end government face surveillance at the state and city level. And we encourage communities across the country to join this movement with our About Face campaign. Take this opportunity to advocate for the end of government use of this harmful technology in your own neighborhoods.

Standing Up for Strong Privacy

Consumer data privacy continued to be a major focus for legislators and voters in 2020, both as it related to the pandemic and as a more general issue. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) went into effect at the start of the year. More changes are coming because California’s voters enacted Proposition 24, which amended the CCPA. EFF did not take a position on that mixed bag of steps forward, steps back, and missed opportunities. Proposition 24 goes into effect in 2023, and CCPA remains the law until then. We will work to ensure pro-privacy implementation of Proposition 24, and continue to fight for strong privacy laws.

There are a lot of weak privacy bills out there. EFF again opposed Washington’s “Privacy Act,” which failed to pass the state’s legislature for the second year in a row. The bill received widespread support from big tech companies. It’s no wonder they like this weak, token effort at reining in corporations’ rampant misuse of personal data. We expect privacy to be at issue again in Washington, where lawmakers are strongly influenced by tech companies in their backyard.

Back in California, EFF stood against A.B. 2004, which would have laid the groundwork for an ill-considered blockchain-based system for “immunity passports.” Specifically, the bill directed the state to set up a verified health credential that shows the results of someone’s last COVID-19 test, for purposes of restricting access to public places. EFF believes that people should not be forced to present health data on their smartphones to enter public places. By claiming that blockchain technology was part of a unique solution to the public health crisis, A.B. 2004 was opportunism at its worst. We were proud to stand against this bill with allies including Mozilla and the ACLU of California. Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed it.

We also called on Gov. Newsom to add necessary privacy protections to any pandemic response program. The California legislature failed to pass a pair of bills (A.B. 660 and A.B. 1782) that would have instituted important privacy guardrails on contact tracing programs. We will continue to work on this issue in the coming year.

Expanding Broadband Access

EFF was proud to co-sponsor California S.B. 1130, by Sen. Lena Gonzalez, which would have paved the way for state-financed networks with bandwidth to handle Internet traffic for decades to come. Expanding broadband access, particularly fiber, is key. Fiber-to-the-home is the best option for California’s future, as EFF explained in a filing to the California Public Utilities Commission.

S.B. 1130 passed the Senate 30-9 and had the support of Gov. Newsom. Yet, with just hours left in this year’s legislative session, the California Assembly refused to hear SB 1130, or any deal, to expand broadband access—without any explanation to the more than 50 groups that supported this bill.

But we’re not giving up. In fact, we’ve continued to build our coalition demanding greater broadband access. On December 7, the first day of the California legislature’s new session, Sen. Gonzalez filed S.B. 4, which shares the same core principles as S.B. 1130.

If you are a California business, non-profit, local elected official, or anchor institution, please sign on in support of S.B. 4. EFF will include you in a letter to update the legislature of how wide and deep current support is for this legislation. Dozens of organizations and elected officials have endorsed this bill with more to come. Join us!

We’re talking to lawmakers in other states who are also interested in overhauling their Internet infrastructure. The weaknesses of many networks have become crystal clear as more people work from home and attend school entirely online.

Looking Ahead

The pandemic and the many ways it affects digital liberties will continue to be a main focus in many legislatures. EFF will continue to work with state lawmakers across the country to enact laws to expand consumer protections and access to critical technologies, to ensure that civil liberties are part of any pandemic response, and to oppose federal efforts to take away rights in states that have passed strong laws.

Роскомнадзор навечно заблокировал в РФ научную библиотеку Libgen


Академическая издательская компания Springer Nature Limited постепенно одерживает победу над победой. Ранее она добилась блокировки интернет-проекта Sci-hub, который размещает научные статьи бесплатно, давая возможность научным сотрудникам, студентам и всем желающим знакомиться с последними достижениями науки в самых разных отраслях.

Сейчас эта организация добилось блокировки в России поисковой системы и онлайн-хранилища научной литературы Library Genesis (или LibGen). Ресурс предоставляет бесплатный доступ к книгам и статьям различной тематики.

Издательство Springer Nature Limited подало иск к IP Volume Inc о защите исключительных прав на литературные произведения «Текущая и будущая антиагрегатная терапия: акцент на сохранении гемостаза», «Достижения в области терапии по снижению липидов с помощью технологий генов-глушителей». Иск был подан в Московский городской суд, истец потребовал заблокировать для ответчика технические условия, которые обеспечивают размещение, распространение и использование указанных литературных произведений на упомянутых сайтах. Кроме того, в иске указано требование ограничить на постоянной основе доступ к веб-сайтам,

В конце апреля этого года суд вынес положительное для истца решение, а Роскомнадзор на днях внес ресурсы в список заблокированных в России сайтов.

В прошлом году российские врачи протестовали против блокировки научных ресурсов, предоставляющих информацию на бесплатной основе. Дело в том, что у врачей просто нет возможности платить за одну научную публикацию 15-60 долларов, что является стандартной ценой научных издательств. Некоторые материалы невозможно получить иначе, кроме как оформить подписку на некоторые журналы стоимостью в несколько тысяч долларов США в год.

Председатель правления Московского городского научного общества терапевтов Павла Воробьева, его предыдущий работодатель покупал доступ к полнотекстовым статьям ко всем базам. И это обходилось организации в несколько миллионов рублей в год. У многих научных организаций такой возможности просто нет.

На сайте Первого МГМУ им. И.М. Сеченова в разделе «зарубежные ресурсы» перечисляются журналы и базы данных, к которым университет предоставляет доступ своим сотрудникам. В число прочих ресурсов входит (самая авторитетная в мире аналитическая и цитатная база данных журнальных статей компании Thomson Reuters), The Cambridge Journals Digital Archive и журналу BMJ (Британский медицинский журнал). Тем не менее, для активной научной работы это немного, ученым нужен доступ к как можно более обширному спектру статей.

«У меня есть личная платная подписка на некоторые журналы, которыми я пользуюсь часто, но все равно периодически возникает необходимость скачать какую-то одну статью, которой в бесплатном доступе нет. Наилучшие исследования, самые интересные обзоры все равно публикуются в платных журналах. В этих случаях и выручал Sci-Hub», – заявил кардиолог Ярослав Ашихмин.

По словам Ашихмина, вопрос о том, считается ли бесплатная загрузка научных статей воровством, является гипотетическим. Но с другой стороны стоит вопрос о выживании российской науки и прогрессе в этой сфере. «Гипотетические мысли о том, что воровать нехорошо я предлагаю сейчас оставить, потому что, конечно, это воровство. Но на другой чаше весов стоит вопрос выживания российской науки. Я рассчитываю, что наши ученые и врачи смогут продолжать пользоваться этим ресурсом с помощью различных средств обхода блокировки», – заявил он.

Два года назад крупнейшее в мире академическое издательство Elsevier требовало у Sci-Hub и LibGen миллионы долларов в качестве компенсации за ущерб. Иск подавался не только в России, но и за рубежом, в частности, в США. В середине 2017 года издательству удалось добиться своего — окружной суд США по Восточному судебному округу штат Нью-Йорк вынес решение о наложении указанных выплат на основателей ресурсов. Тем не менее, последние, поскольку не являются гражданами США и не имеют достаточного количества средств, до сих пор не подчинились решению суда.

Что касается судебного процесса, то итоговое решение поддержали многие издательства и правообладатели. Такая организация, как Association of American Publishers (AAP) заявила о своем полном удовлетворении решением суда. «Как показывает решение, суд не был обманут словами о том, что нелегальная деятельность — это польза для общества», — заявил президент этой организации.

Yes, it would be too simple, if all was well. Sometimes, without a definite periodicity, the cursor stops moving. However, buttons and scrolling work. Switching the trackball off and on again helps. In respect of usability, it's OK. It''s not really a game, the controls are rather slow, but it's easy to work with.

From two years ago stolen from reddit. Windows 10 has become astonishingly worse... Boggles my mind why people still use it...

So far today i have had a windows 10 laptop thats nearly brand new, sit there and go "connecting" "disconnect" "connecting" "disconnecting" on the wireless network every 3 seconds. Just cycling over and over again. Just after a fresh reboot.

Had to disable and re-enable the wireless adapter to fix that.

And now, on a brand new HP spectre, im copying data across the network, and in task manager it has "1.3mpbs" next to the mini graph, yet, on the large graph, it has over 300mps. Its the same graph.

So many shitty user bugs, inconsistent user interfaces, for example, you select the wireless network in the flyout, it has connect in a square button, but "properties" in dark underlined font. Oh and rightclick doesnt work. You go up a bit to the VPN connection, and it doesnt have properties. you have to go through the various clicks and the horrific to navigate networking page that shows you information about the network adapter thats totally fucking useless. And to edit this? change your IP? you have to go BACK OUT and go somewhere else. Why not put an edit button there? no.. FUCK YOU says Microsoft.

Why is right click removed from so many interfaces? Why does the left hand bar of the start menu not respond to right click at all?

I go home and drink because the future of computing is a popup-add filled start menu filled with games that no one wants, search menus that dont work and send all that you type back to microsoft, and an operating system that everytime it does an update reverts all your settings, file associations and personalised preferences. I dont know how long i can go on like this with every major OS turned into a social media data mining experience.

5 years ago, if you had of gone up to a windows 7 desktop that was restarting without your permissions, was popping up games over and over again that you un-installed, had different right click menus everywhere, was sending your search data back to unknown servers, kept resetting your file associations and kept asking you to use another browser, your first thought would be: This computer is infected with a trojan or spyware, search hijacker or BHO toolbar with third party programs running amok.

Now? Now thats a the FLAGSHIP PRODUCT of a world class company.

You spend over 200 dollars on an OS, and you get fucking GAMES installing themselves over your bandwidth in the start menu.

So lets install office right? So you have to buy it. So you hand over your credit card, personal email address, home/business address, date of birth, all just to get a copy of office, that then installs and starts advertising the weather from the wrong fucking LOCATION in outlook.

This is after windows 10s "location" feature being horribly broken. After all that data mining they cant do a fucking GEOIP lookup?

Every few weeks, office gets updated. There is no QA done. The last update prevented the ability to save multiple attachments from outlook. The fucking REASON to have outlook is to work on your emails and documents, and they cant even fucking get that right, all the while touting all these amazing new features like integrated linux and docker funtionality, they CANT GET FUCKING OUTLOOK to work?

I do the IT for a professional customer facing business, and there is fucking minecraft and candy crush soda in the start menu.

RIght now, this spectre im working on has an external dock using an external monitor and network card. So windows 10 does the obvious thing and SHUTS THE DOCK DOWN WHILE ITS USING IT!!


I know after an hour, have to restart a backup procedure because windows 10 has shutdown its own network interface, that it cant even measure bandwidth on properly, after spending 30 seconds trying to work out why it has no network connections anymore for the backup im running.

Are you fucking SERIOUS?

Wait, it gets worse. I am browsing the network again. Litereally looking at the router in "Network", while the data has started copying again, and a blue bar pops up saying "this computer is not connected to a netork, click to connect."

Its connected, the network logo has no yellow or red mark. im literally looking at the network.

Clicking the toolbar does nothing. It goes "connect to a network" then dissapears.

Is this some sick joke that microsoft is playing on the world? to see how much shit people will take from their computer under the pretense of "Windows 10 is easier to use" "Focus on productivity!"

Lets see, look at a windows 7 machine. No popups saying "switch to edge its better!" or "how do you rate windows 10" or "would you recommend it to a colleague".

No auto-installing games in the start menu that takes up half the screen when you click it and all you want to do is open your fucking outlook.

No unskippable full screen prompts. No popups asking you to reconnect to the network you are STILL CONNECTED TO.

You open the start menu and open your application.

how.. HOW could microsoft fuck that up? Why is there "play and explore" on a business OS?

Why is there an xbox tile in my cad machine that i cant uninstall?

Why doesnt windows 10 stay connected to a wireless network?

Why is there all this touch interface bullshit on a screen that doesnt have touch capability?

Why is the font SO FUCKING HUGE. Why is there an INCH between each icon in the settings window that takes up the ENTIRE 1920x1080p screen?

Why does window defender keep putting itself in action center saying it didnt find anything during its last scan? WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT??

Why does 1 out of 10 surface computers just ignore group policy? Just.. ignores it.

Why does windows 10 routinely break offline files, pdf file associations and font sizes?

Why doesnt Search work? Why is it opening up EDGE and BING?? what the fuck i want to look for a file in my documents!!

The start menu has weather for fucking CANBERRA and im in brisbane, the time zone is set correctly as well. Does the app do a geo ip lookup? nope. Fuck it. Cant even be bothered to check the time zone much less the location.

Mine all your social media and search queries, but cant be bothered to work out where the fuck you ARE.

Go to the microsoft support forums, and 90 percent of fixes are "reinstall your os"

The other 10 percent are met with other people saying "oh it works fine for me" woopy fucking doo to you.

Oh you dont want to use cortana? well, to fucking bad. It's microsofts PC, and you are on microsofts terms now, its their pc, they can do what they want, because what are you going to do? nothing. You cant do a thing.

Got software that doesnt work on windows 10? too fucking bad for you, they wanted everyone to use Windows Datamine Edition 10 they ACTUALLY CHANGED the definition of CLOSE to mean "Accept"

Full screen fucking ads on perfectly working windows 7 installations to sell you on the newest shittiest least tested edition of windows ever made. An OS sooooo BAD, the standard fix for if something goes wrong is to just format and reinstall.

As well, lets make it even easier to diagnose your shitty new force installed os by REMOVING F8 boot settings!

The quickest way now to get into safe mode is to boot into normal mode and use the start menu! HOW THE FUCK DOES THAT MAKE SENSE. You need safe mode because it wont fucking boot into normal mode
