    I don't know, it's just so weird that it only affects tildes, and does so on two different installations.

    I'm using Firefox on Arch with ublock origin, umatrix, decentraleyes, darkreader, bypass paywalls, old reddit redirect.
    None of these should affect Tildes in any way. but still, Firefox seems not to be able to keep me logged in, and everytime i open Tildes in a new tab, I'm logged out. Sometimes it remembers the theme (solarized dark) sometimes it does not and only remembers it after a refresh, and sometimes it just dont.
    I dont even know where to look for a solution, especially as this seems to be Tildes specific as no other website seems to have this problems. an I'm pretty shure it has something to do with my Firefox, as it is that way on both of my computers.

    edit: solution was to delete all tildes.net cookies

    It always makes me happy when i use an old program and that design pops up. it just is so reduced, no noise, no bells and whistles.
    but then, that might be because thats what i learned and nostalgia is clouding my view.

    I'm really afraid of people having lived in a very western media bubble in the information about this war. It took the US about 21 days to take over Irak militarily, it took them years if not decades to stabilise it. we're on day 7 and people/media seem to call it quits? i see that russia seems to have problems atm, at least that is what all western media says at the moment, but please please, dampen your expectations. remember chechnya? or go back further, russia is historicaly able to take incredible hard hits and still go on. Thinking that the war will just end without further heavy casualties and/or putin will be loose his power by a coup seems illusionary to me, and coming from a deep cultural misunderstanding.

    i put myself in a lot of russian state media today to see whats the narrative there and it's just crazy how there is a completley different story.
    Remember all the times we were lied to by western "propaganda", war in irak, greece, brexit, afganistan, (somebody remembers the war between india and china the last year?) there is obviously more, but i stoped giving a shit because its hurting my mental healt. Maybe we should not take everything as true we read on any media, i thought we learned that since the advent of the internet.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a pacifist by heart and soul. this war started (or at least lifted to horribly new magnitudes) by russia is wrong, it goes against everything still good in this world.

    but to think that putin will just go away, or that ukraine will win this war without a horrible bloodbad and most of the country destroyed might be giving in to a lot of wishfull thinking and i think that might be very dangerous. that's just not how these things happend in the past.

    Dont worry, use what is good for you. coolness is about taking your own choices an be shure of them, not what other people are doing or thinking.

    I feel you. I had exactly this kinds of problems so many times. and then solved it the same way as you did. reinstall.
    but i would advice you to try and solve the problem anyway, as the tools you will learn will help you fix this kind of problems or even not making them in the first place.

    things you might learn are:

    • what is fstab and why keeps it fucking up my boot.
    • how to mount "foreign" partitons to a live system
    • how to chroot into a system
    • what does grub actually do?
    • ...

    as most other people here expect it is with a high posibility a fstab problem which you can resolve in minutes if you know these things.

    its a short presentation Vladimir Pozner gave in Yale University
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Pozner_Jr.
    He is a french/russian/american journalist, who was a sowjet propagandist (his own words) during the late cold war, mainly by explaining sowjet politics and culture to us-americans.
    he gives a short presentation (30.mins) about the history of russian and putin since the end of the cold war to present day while heavily empatizing with the russian view of that events.
    After that he answers questions from the audience.

    I would not say its a politcal video, but more a lesson in history while the subject is very political in nature.

    He also heavily critizices western and russian media, which might be the most political he actually gets.

    If you want to get closer to understanding why russia and putin specificaly are doing what they are doing I would advice to watch it in its entirety. I promise its a pleasure to hear Vladimir Pozner speak out his well informed and eloquently presented deep thoughts.

    i think thats some needed context. beeing immersed in western media and culture, we often forget that to understand other people, it is not enough to think what we would do in their place, but what we woud do if we were them.

    internet search is close to death. searching for anything that can be sold just gives you spam, no matter where you search. for everything else DDG is a fine alternative to google. i switched some time ago, it took me a week or two to get acustomed to the different look and feel. i dont think there really is a noticable difference in quality, its just different. i dont know how to explain it, but if i use google now, i get the same feeling of uneasiness i had with Bing or DDG before i switched.

    anyway, if im properly researching something i use multiple engines, as that gives me consitently better results.
