That's nice of you, but isn't the entire point of Firejail that it restricts access to user folders as much as possible? :wink:
Haha, yeah. But it's probably better to run inside a loose firejail than not inside a sandbox at all. :lol:

I used to use Firejail but I found its picketyness about which folders I could access to be more trouble than it was worth.
I'm always happy to help with that. ;)

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

Wow! Talk about having tickets on yourself. I'll leave you to it. Had to look up the "tickets on yourself" expression -- we don't often have that in my part of the world. Anyways, no, not in the slightest. Just putting a bit of backstory out there since someone was apparently concerned about "playi...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

Oof! Yeah, sorry to have offended you, catweazel. As for the "playing dress-up physicist"... you're free to draw your own conclusions. I've said repeatedly that I'm a radiation physicist, not a cosmologist. It's no surprise that I'm a bit behind on the latest ideas -- I don't normally have to worry ...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

what do you mean we can't go back further? Because there is no further. Just like you can't measure something and tell me it's less than 0 meters long. ;) scientists make educated guesses that seem to hold up more validity in their community and anyone caught disagreeing is a heretic.

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

right, there was nothing. a definition of nothing is, it remains the same when you add to it or take away from it. how then can we have something out of nothing if the "value" of nothing hasn't changed? But here's the thing -- you're using the definition of "nothing" as it pertains to after the beg...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

do you then believe that if time is relative, math and physics aren't ? Yes and no, maybe?? :mrgreen: "Relative" doesn't mean "fluid" in this context. Experiments have shown that time is constant for any single reference frame -- that is, you won't magically age from 28-40 in the same time that som...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

think of a number from 1 to infinity type it down so you don't forget it. make it as long as you like open your Calculator and try this. take your number and multiply by two x 2 = +8 = divide by two /2 = minus your number -x = ... 4 But that's exactly what we'd expect.

Haha, maybe so, but darkness isn't actually a "thing". ;) darkness is time or the constant or the denominator, the thing we can't explain with math and science. the thing that exists between light particles. we put too much emphasis on light being such a great energy, that it travels the fastest an...

I was talking about the difference in time between when gravity was turned off, and the exact moment when the planet stopped orbiting the star and began continuing on its velocity...

Semi-competent physicist here... :lol: I primarily deal with radiation physics (similar concepts as nuclear physics but different focus) so I'm no cosmologist, but I'll give this a shot.

Re: Does todays hardware encourage bad code?

As an aside, is coding what was once known as programming? If so, why the change? Coders is some kind of monkey who constatntly translate to known language all algorithms developed by true programmers. For food. And coffee.

if firefox or chrome or libreoffice opens but you get dbus errors then it means firejail is doing it's job.
This.
As long as everything works as expected, dbus errors are harmless and actually mean that firejail is doing its job. :)
