I had this happen to me with a hardware-encrypted bitlocker drive. I was forced to buy a new SSD, actually.

I'm a liberal, and I sure as shit know the only ethical choice is to vote against Trump. People who demand perfection as the alternative to a fascist takeover aren't just virtue signaling but also maliciously stupid.

Any idea that comes out of that prick's mouth is snake oil if we're going to be truthful about it.

Only if you don't buy the Season 1 Vault-Tec Access Pass for $49.99. Imagine not doing that and then not ever being able to get your Overpowered Armor at pass level 5. You would absolutely be ruining it for yourself by not investing into the seasonal passes.

50ms of latency in a first-person perspective. That's a great way to exclude people with motion sickness from playing games.

Capitalism bad. Support Epic Games instead. /s

If you can find the download for GitHub Enterprise, Ruby Concealer is little more than an XOR cipher. Make of that what you will.

Yeah... I think you might be an optimist. It was not the positive outcome you appeared to have taken away from it.

Does sudo have a plethora of stupid features? Yeah.

What it doesn't have is a needlessly complicated and overengineered design that relies on interprocess communication and three different daemons from two separate packages. It generates a temporary systemd service to actually run the privileged command, for Davis' sake. That is one hell of a surface area for something that's the gateway between an unprivileged user and root.

I'm not saying sudo deserves to be used permanently, but if someone is going to replace it with a new tool for security reasons, that tool should be less complicated and use fewer runtime dependencies than what it's replacing. When you account for the entire architecture of run0, sudo is lightweight in comparison.

If the alternative involves shoving polkit on a server just for temporary admin privileges, it's unnecessary.

[-] pivot_root 17 points 3 days ago

Yeah... we didn't need run0.

Setuid and sudo work fine, and they're lightweight. I fail to see how yet another binary is needed for that job, and especially one that relies on polkit. If you really needed to use polkit for gaining privileges temporarily, pkexec already exists for that.

From his friend Vlad. Great guy. Amazing, truly. So very smart. He knows how to run a country so well. Not like that fraud who STOLE THE 2020 ELECTION.

This also includes ceasing development and destroying their copies of the code.

The GitHub repo page for Yuzu now returns a 404, as well. The website is still up, though.

The GitHub repo page for Yuzu now returns a 404, as well. In addition, the repo for the Citra 3DS emulator was also taken down.

As of at least 23:30 UTC, Yuzu's website and Citra's website have been replaced with a statement about their discontinuation.

You may know it as Space Melody by Luna Park or as ResuRection by ППК (English: PPK), but the original melody was composed by Eduard Artemyev for the 1979 Soviet film Siberiade. The original name of the song, as titled in the movie's soundtrack release, is la mort du héroes (the death of heroes, if my French is correct).

Here's a link to the original composition, if you're curious.
