Why would you pay to pirate? Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it?
>>
Because you still pay significantly less than if you would buy everything you pirated legit.
>>
>>63867014
The original purpose of pirating, much like pirate radios of old. Was to get (or those holding, distribute) otherwise hard-to-reach content which is not accessible by everybody.

Pirating is more about accessing otherwise restricted content for most people. Not just 'free stuffs'.

Because kids are used to all their videos being available instantly and are too impatient to wait a few hours for something to download at http filehost speed. They can't even comprehend the concept downloading things in the background while doing other things so that they can watch it later.

Is it worth buying 2nd hand kindle? I could buy it locally (eastern europe here) for 89 euros used and 129 euros new but eBay seems more safe because of paypal.

Please respond.

Yes, it's easier to blame someone/something else than accept there are things about yourself you can't change.
There were accusations of "racism" going around when the windows face unlock was having problems with black people in low light situations.

In that same vein, I could claim that the sun is racist since it burns my fair skin faster than that of a black person.

This thread is about the appreciation of whorology, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that are required to make a fine watch, clock, or other timepiece.

I think I've read somewhere that a fusée and chain wasn't technically a true "constant force" device, like a remontoir d'égalité is.
I can't remember for the life of me the reasoning behind it though...
>>
>>63866735
I suppose you could argue that the non-zero size of the links in the chain probably means the force varies slightly, but you could probably say the same thing about a remontoire, since the force just after the remontoire is wound is likely different than the force just before the remontoire is wound.

I think the important thing for both though is that the average rate of the watch measured over any interval meaningfully longer than the above time scales is constant, and in particular doesn't depend on the depletion of the mainspring.

I installed this thing to stop popups.

New update now throws a pop up instead of trusting you to select from the icon.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I DIDN'T WANT TO HAPPEN.

Plus the new dropdown UI is garbage.
