@dredmorbius not syscalls as such; but it's what's executing; so you see whether you're running in the kernel or any particular process, and what function etc - perf also has LOTS of flags to change what it's doing. But if something is eating CPU then perf can help you find out why; you can use 'vmstat' to see *if* it's eating cpu or just stuck waiting on disk.

“Zerohedge blocked om Facebook”. Nuff said.

An amazing 1 minute video on Bitcoin Market Chart - Growth. You can clearly see here that how many times bitcoin was considered dead, but no matter what it kept on hustling and made the previous Bull-run look like a drop in ocean. (src )

A friend called me today asking for 'crypto investment advice'.

1 - Learn how bitcoin works (particularly key management)
2 - Make offline wallet and check backups
3 - Buy bitcoin
4 - Send to offline wallet

Repeat 2-4.

5 - All Alts are scams.

And they have to stop arguing "free speech". God, not government gave us the right to speak freely. The government doesn't even have authority to protect free speech. The 1st amendment says "CONGRESS shall...make no law abridging the freedom of speech". No permission or guarantee.

I think its kinda funny that birdsite is a big social hub for bitcoin/cryptocurrency, given the character limit on posts. Bitcoin is a nuanced topic, I find it hard to believe meaningful opinions can be effectively communicated in a few hundred characters, at least for some topics.

I wonder if some of the scorched-earth type attitudes & opinions are embellished by this fact? It's easier to take a hard stance than a nuanced opinion.

Vitalik B. In a recent blogpost: basic layer of Ethereum should be stable and simple, complex functions to be pushed into layer 2 and above. Even smart contracts (la raison d’être of Eth) to be serviced by ‘Execution Engines’ in layer 2:

—“Note that anyone can create a layer 2 execution engine at any time, different users can use different execution engines, and one can switch from one execution engine to any other, or to the base protocol, fairly quickly.
