Friday fun fact: If Stegosauruses had space telescopes, they wouldn't have seen any rings around Saturn

The Register - 9 hours 34 min ago
Bet you were expecting a rude ring pun here? Well, not today

Saturn’s characteristic rings may only be as old as 100 million years, and thus formed during a time when dinosaurs still roamed on Earth.…

When do you think we'll reach the smartphone plateau?

Android - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 23:49

I remember the days whenever there's a new phone, I would be always on the fence on buying it because it has something new or different to offer from what I currently had.

Now, phones are reaching a point where they almost look the same and offer the same sets of features with unnoticeable performance bumps.

For me, it's starting to feel that the Golden Age of smartphones were from 2012-2016.

What do you think will be next?

Does anyone know of a way to have a terminal sync with the terminal. Like while I navigate through the file system in the terminal there is a file manager staying open with it?

Well, congrats little boys, looks like I've finally been 'banned'. Heh.

Linux - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 22:57

Well, of course not officially (more quasi, sneaky shadow?) as I'm able to make this post but it's not like I'll ever know when my comments are deleted and apparently they're being deleted by mods on a whim; Thus, I am constructively banned.

Maybe you are being censored too? I know I certainly am.

I received a call from a real life friend earlier who knows me and knows I don't delete unless cleaning up my history in batches on Sundays, otherwise I would have never known my comment had been removed.

And for what? I dunno. As far as I know drinking is allowed while using reddit, the thread is full of people cussing and their comments haven't been removed. In fact the only thing that sets me apart from..apart fro.....oh I get it now...set apart...apart....diferent...diversity. Yeah, well, enjoy your little enclave...your 'safe space' here on reddit. Following are imgur shots of 1) The thread in my desktop and my unlogged in phone (makes me wonder how many of my other comments have been removed unbeknown to me) 2)My message inbox showing no attempt to inform me by mods (wow...that level of cowardice is even surprising to me) 3)The original comment(because it still shows up for me...shady!)

I mean, I can still post etc. but I guess it has to be only content that is not diverse from the circle jerk here. Like most of the world, not interested. For the few of you who see this before it's deleted and don't have overt control issues, so long and thanks for all the fish :)

Is LFCS good prep cert to get read to eventually pursue my RCHSA?

Linux - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 22:43

I have a discounted voucher to get my LFCS. From what I understand, CENTOS is pretty much the same as Red Hat, and I like that it's a hands-on exam. One of my leads at my former job said to go LPIC, but even though LFCS seems less popular (I know certs aren't everything), going through a manual test has to be better prep when it comes time for interviews. I've heard that the RHCSA is very tough, and wasn't sure if I should just study for that, or do Linux Foundation first to prep.

Hey redditors. I'm curious what was the very first app you built all on your own? How did it to in the Play Store? Was it really buggy or were you proud of it?

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 22:10

Include links to Google Play if you can. I'm just really curious how everyone started their paths.
