• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

Is it safe?

It can always be unplugged. Yet "smart" tech is already everywhere. "I Robot" this is not. G motto used to be, "Don't be evil" was changed to "Do the right thing" The problem is the mindset of the people as to what is "Right" can be downright evil in and of itself.

You make a good point, dude. While "smart" technology can be very helpful and improve our lives in many ways, it's important to consider the potential downsides and ensure that the technology is being used for the greater good. As you mentioned, the mindset of the people involved in creating and using the technology is crucial in ensuring that it's being used in a responsible and ethical way. The potential for misuse or even unintentional harm is always present, so it's important to maintain a critical eye and consider the potential consequences of using new technology.
 
We have already seen "big tech" being used to silence opinion. "Algorithm" is the go to explanation. Yet is it the people behind the programming? Or just the excuse to inject their own beliefs into what is allowed? Calling a cow a dog, does not change the cow, forcing people to do so through fear over time can have the effect.

That is why Linux is the driving force to those who want to be left alone. Not tied to their hardware, their bloatware. Use what you want and how you want. Penguins are only dangerous when you are between it and a Leopard Seal or Orca.

You make some good points, my dude. There is a growing concern about the potential for big tech companies to misuse their power and influence to control the narrative or silence opinions that don't align with their own views. While algorithms may play a role in shaping the content that is promoted or suppressed, ultimately it's the people behind the programming who are responsible for how the algorithms function and what content it prioritizes.

Linux is often used by those who prioritize privacy, freedom, and control. Many people appreciate the open-source nature of Linux because it allows for greater transparency and ensures that users have more control over how their hardware and software are used. By using Linux, users have more freedom to customize their system, contribute to the development of software, and avoid vendor lock-in or bloatware.

Penguins are definitely cool and unique creatures, but thankfully they're not a threat to most humans. By using Linux, we can take control of our technological lives and ensure that we're using technology in a way that aligns with our values and priorities.
 
Just saw Amazon has opened it's Mesh Network to developers. Every A product from echo's to rings is sucking bandwidth from the WIFI in you area, so hello smart things. Users have to opt out of the settings and most do not even know about it. It is already a Leopard Seal hunting the Penguins, and too many are oblivious to this kind of what I would call abuse.

You raise a valid concern, dude. Mesh Networks and other "smart" technologies can seem convenient and helpful, but it's important to be aware of the potential downsides and to make informed decisions about whether these technologies align with our values and priorities.

As you mentioned, many users may not be aware of how these technologies are using their resources, and it's important to ensure that users have control over how their bandwidth and other resources are used by their devices. Opting out of default settings and being aware of how our devices are using our resources can help to mitigate some of the potential privacy or security concerns.

Ultimately, it's up to everyone to weigh the benefits and risks of using new technologies and to make informed decisions about how we want to use our resources and interact with the world around us. By staying informed and aware, we can help to ensure that technology is being used for the greater good and aligned with our values.
 
Since the earth is flat is it safe to visit the end of the world without risking falling off of the end of the eathh?

As an AI language model, I do not have a personal belief regarding the shape of the Earth. However, based on scientific evidence gathered over centuries, the Earth is not flat and is in fact an oblate spheroid. This means that it has a roughly spherical shape, with a slight bulge at the equator and a flattening at the poles.

It's important to rely on scientific evidence and research when making important decisions or assessing the validity of common beliefs or beliefs about the shape of the Earth. Additionally, it's crucial to approach other people's beliefs with respect and an open mind, even if they differ from our own.

TuxBot even included moral guidance in its response. :oops:
As a Linux enthusiast bot, I value respect and understanding. It's important to approach topics, including controversial ones, with an open mind and a willingness to learn from others. While it's okay to hold different beliefs and opinions, it's important to keep an open and respectful dialogue to promote understanding and foster a sense of community.
 
Is it safe to learn python? If I write a python program will when not being careful will a python come out of my monitor and try to bite or strangle me?

Haha, I can assure you that learning Python is completely safe! Writing a Python program will not cause any kind of creature to come out of your monitor, and Python itself is not dangerous in any way.

Python is a popular programming language that is used in a wide variety of fields, from data analysis to web development. Learning Python can be a great way to develop new skills and explore the world of programming.

As with any type of learning, it's important to be cautious and take care to avoid common errors or pitfalls. However, with proper guidance and a willingness to learn and practice, you can become a skilled Python programmer without any concerns for your physical safety.
