    this is meaningless if you researched the subjects beforehand
    kernel programming is not somehow magically harder than other kinds of systems programming, it's just that you need to have the relevant domain knowledge for it.

      and it just turns out that you cannot create a relevant kernel without big corporations backing you because most of hardware is proprietary and undocumented

          it's not useful for me to know how Linux loads firmware blobs.

            thankfully my hardware doesn't require linux-firmware to work

            Linux would never do that

        Yup, this is the bigger problem.
        There is not one way to access the LTE network without using some proprietary code somewhere along the way.
        In UMTS, this was still possible.
        This is a domain the government needs to step up.
        Of course, in the US, they're in bed with big tech, so that ain't going to happen.
        So it's left to the EU, but most of our politicians are sucking their thumbs when it comes to these topics, and it is amazing we've even "managed" something like the GDPR, the right to repair and forcing USB type C connectors.

            And they're just going to tell them to put in mandatory back doors and cooomply, much like in the US, except the goverment is more powerful there.
            It needs to be someone who only buys, but doesn't sell.
            Ergo, we're probably fricked.
            Oh well.

    Even better, I can read the files from any harddrive with any filrsystem that has ever existed or ever will. I'll simply change the pointer on π

        Continuous infinite non-repeating sequence has infinite variations of all possible binary outputs

          There is no proof that PI is non repeating.
          Additionally even if there would be, there is no proof that all numbers are equally probable and that all combinations are possible. For example, there could exist an infinite non repeating number that is structured in such a way that the sequence 453279254379 simply never can appear in it.

            Unless you can find a repeat in any of the currently found numbers I'll keep my PiFS. Just wait until my search for your next comment completes somewhere in the next 5-10^10^10^10^10 seconds

            it's pretty cool to have infinite storage, but aside from the awful lookup time, how do you even know what to search for?
            don't you need to know the future to find the comment?
            maybe you can find a list somewhere with the indexes of your future searches
