War and Politics 

During this war, we just experienced how good Russian propaganda is and how brainwashed some people are...

I've had lots of people message me and ask me: "Why do you support Ukraine?"

I would usually name all the OBVIOUS reasons why I support Ukraine. But now I'm pissed.

There's russians, killing, raping women and children. Bombing cities and killing civilians, innocent people.

Then there's Ukrainians who have been peaceful and they're just defending their land.

Now you're asking me why I support Ukraine? Pathetic.

You can try and describe Rust syntax but I don’t think you’re going to beat “like trying to read the output of a UART with line noise.”

Coding projects ideas? Bored asf and can't come up with any project ideas :(

(I usually code in C/C++ and Python)

Waking up in the mornings on the alarm gets more challenging each day 😴​

Any recommended Computer Science e-books, courses etc.?

So I've been using Arch Linux for a while now and I was pretty comfortable with it. But there's a few things that I don't quite like about it, one of them being Systemd.

I've distro hopped before, which means I tried quite a number of distros. I did some research and I found out about Void Linux, which seems pretty nice actually.

For those of you who haven't heard of it before, Void Linux is an independent distribution and instead of Systemd, they use Runit. Lots of people also say that Void's package manager is even better than Pacman. The distro itself is minimal, fast. Incredible bootup speeds. Complete opposite of bloat.

However I'm also a bit too lazy to reinstall everything, to backup my files, reconfigure, etc.

What browser(s) are you using?

Any recommendations for privacy focused browsers? Was currently using Librewolf (Firefox fork), but I'm looking for something new.

Also let me know if it's other than any of the options listed in the poll, it couldn't fit lol

What are your thoughts on DuckDuckGo after the censoring thing? I personally switched to StartPage, but I was looking for something else. Any suggestions?

Why do people still use Twitter when they can use platforms like this? Genuine question.

Just got into Rust, thought it would be fun to learn, but I can't really decide if I should learn it "full-time". I'm already quite familiar with C/C++ and most things I need, I can do in C++.

I also noticed that Rust isn't as widely used as C++ is, or C.

Some Rust devs will definitely tell me that C/C++ isn't safe and memory allocation can be poorly implemented, which is kinda true, Rust is safer. However, if you know what you're doing, you can write as safe code in C or C++.

What's your opinion?

Hey all, I'm new here.

Glad to be here, seems like quite a community :)
