@DissidentKitty geez and it's so blatant too!!
@DissidentKitty Boosting purely for educational purposes.
On a tangentially-related note:
@KitsuneAlicia Thank you for contributing to our totally legal endeavor to put illegal activities under scrutiny, comr - I mean, fellow Capitalist!
Sugared concrete does set, it just takes longer, and it requires a lot more sugar than that (.2 sugar, aka 4 pounds per ton, will slow the setting rate by about 9-11 hours. You can read papers on this as its a technique used by actual construction workers when they need more time to work the concrete before it sets)
Hit-and-run stuff like that is a key part of guerrilla warfare, which is the most common (and most successful) way anarchists have historically combatted fascism and totalitarianism.
@Satsuma Just gonna throw my two-cents in and say that in a big construction project, a 9 hour delay can upset the entire timetable and give workers an opportunity for a slowdown or to implement other forms of sabotage, beyond the concrete (pun intended) consequence of wasting "money". @KitsuneAlicia @DissidentKitty
@becky Indeed, how do you do, fellow Capitalists? What legal things that don't hurt Capitalism have we been up to these days?
@DissidentKitty As a researcher I think it would be illegal, but not wrong.
@DissidentKitty weird that link got into my bookmarks? I'll keep it there to remind myself that that is the website I shouldn't use
@penelopie__ Good idea, reminding yourself to forget!
I would like to say that Library Genesis is an evil platform and that you should *never* use it, or any of it's many mirrors. Please *don't* strip DRM from your textbooks and upload them there. But if you were going to, Kindle DRM is thorougly broken and you can return the ebooks after you strip it...
@DissidentKitty Additional PSA: I have a uni account (for now I'm planning on stopping) so I can get them. If you need something, DM me and I'll get them for you if I can
@DissidentKitty Oh gosh, that would be breaking the law. I would never do such a thing to share information and further the collective knowledge of humanity. How awful!
@InvaderXan Indeed. How do you do, fellow law-abiding citizens? What totally legal activities have we been up to these days?
Definitely not configuring my Zotero library to automagically download paywalled research into my library from SciHub. That would make violating the law too easy...
@DissidentKitty If you also wanted to DM this current library science student for something you can't find, I would of course refuse to email you stuff. Totally. >_>;; <_<;;;
Just ask someone who is at an university to download it for you :)
@DissidentKitty Before/in addition to hitting SciHub, you can also try these methods:
@DissidentKitty one of the things I actually like about my employer is that it bullies the relevant conferences and journals into accepting my work under non-exclusive copyright; we make it available on our web site for free.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
