Do all p2p protocols require a list of addresses to connect to more peers? Where to find them?
I'm using mldonkey which supports many p2p protocols. For the edonkey protocol it required a `server.met.gz` file to connect to more servers. Do I need something like that for the rest of the netwroks? overnet, kademlia, bittorrent, opennap, soulseek, gnutella, gnutella2, fasttrack, directconnect, fileTP.

According to a new poll from the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, almost a third say it may soon be necessary to "take up arms against the government". Two-thirds of Republicans and independents say the government is corrupt and out to get them. That’s compared to 51 percent of liberal voters. Of course, these findings come after a House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol wrapped up it’s final hearing. What this poll clearly shows, is that the division between conservatives and liberals across the country is only growing. Half of all Americans believe the other side is misinformed about politics because of where they get their news from. And they also believe that the other side want to impose those same beliefs on them. There is very little chance of any meaningful reconciliation happening in the foreseeable future, at least any that would help to bridge this divide.

libby: a simple CLI tool to quickly download books from libgen (Library Genesis)
libby scrapes Library Genesis with curl and pup and gives you a list of downloads with fzf. I made this because I felt the alternatives were too slow. Feel free to add issues/feature requests/PRs! The tool is available on the AUR as libby-git. [GitHub](https://github.com/carterprince/libby) [Source](https://github.com/carterprince/libby/blob/main/libby)

Firefighters in Portugal, Spain, France, Greece and Morocco are battling forest fires raging across tens of thousands of hectares as this week’s heatwave continues to bring extreme temperatures and cause hundreds of deaths across south-western Europe. The second heatwave of the summer – with temperatures hitting 47C (116F) in Portugal and 45C to Spain – has triggered wildfires that have forced the evacuation of thousands of people. In Portugal, the meteorological institute has forecast temperatures of up to 42C with no respite before next week. The civil defence authorities, however, took advantage of a slight drop in temperatures after a July record of 47C on Thursday to try to stamp out one remaining major fire in the north of the country.

YSK How to survive extreme heat without air conditioning

Looking for software for Linux to sort files into letter named folders repeatedly until there are only a given number of files per folder
Let's say I have a really big number of files. I would like a program that created a folder for each letter in the alphabet, one for special symbols, one for numbers and placed the files into those folders based on the first letter of the file's title. It would repeat this process with the next letters of the file title until there were less than a given number of files in each folder. This would be useful to open the folders quicker, as opening a folder with too many files is often buggy or slow.

I think as soon as there are killer robots, like a flying drone with a mounted gun that never fails or something like that, the elite will use it to keep the status quo indefinitely. And there will be nothing people can do about it.




So for you it would be a toggle, you would see one content or the other. You can imagine it as you like, it’s hypothetical.
