Re: mental deranger people carrying weapons?
Care in the Community could have worked out entirely differently if they hadn't cut all the budget for carers in the community at the same time.

"Rust doesn't have super strong typing of Ada, it follows by default more the dynamic typing of Python" that is quite simply totally and utterly wrong. It allows types to be inferred, but every variable has a well-defined type at compile time, which is extended to include lifetime analysis to ensure variables are not used beyond the point their value is valid. It's one of the strongest type systems I've seen. It is immensely more safe than C++. The compiler is extremely strict.
This post simply displays your ignorance of Rust (and languages in general) I'm afraid. It has stronger typing than C++, but uses type inference (similar to "auto" in modern C++, but actually more like Haskell) to save the developer having to name all the types, which makes refactoring easier.
And yet violence by right wing individuals and organisations seems to be reaching an apex at exactly the same time as they have been given a platform to voice their opinions. Allowing them a platform amplifies their voices, and they feel empowered to turn voice into action.
Such opinions are much less likely to be expressed privately, as most reasonable people would call them out.
Still people don't seem to understand the distinction between allowing someone freedom of speech and being compelled to provide them a platform.
Facebook, Twitter et al. have no duty to allow all voices to be heard. People wanting to espouse these views can always look elsewhere to do so.
It really should surprise noone that cheats, unauthorised mods (or even, occassionally authorised mods), and cracked software are a common attack vector for malware. In no way is this limited to Fortnite. Any parent of a 14 year old can tell you this - laptops read regular disinfection when used by teenage gamers.
I concur here - I wouldn't expect any product to use the initials NHS, unless actually part of the NHS. Having been warned over NHSubuntu, they really may have foreseen issues with NHoS. On the other hand, immediately reaching for lawyers was a bit heavy handed.
I'm also surprised the NHS would actually consider anything produced on a volunteer basis by 4 workers. What about support concerns? Are they capable of moving fast in the case of breakage? There may be other factors at play.
Chomsky and Herman's Manufacturing Consent (1988) illustrated that Western media has always been guilty of the sin of omission, and is manipulated by political parties to "frame a debate". I find it unlikely there has ever been a newspaper that just prints "facts", without having some filter of the vested interests of the owners.
That was exactly my thought - based on the heat map illustration it looks like the same layout was tested with flat UI elements vs 3D elements. However, changing to a good modern design requires more than just changing a theme - it should use the placement and coloring to give the user cues which elements are active and which are passive.
One thing, as the owner of a large collection of vinyl and CDs there are none of my vinyl records that are unplayable - occassionally small artifacts, but mostly listenable.
Lots of my CDs have started jumping and become utterly unlistenable. I'm transferring them all to digital storage and just keeping the CD inserts - the rest are just junk now.
