I downloaded 5 films just today as well.
Vinay's backstory isn't very interesting. He's yet another crypto grifter. He used to be the release manager of Ethereum, now he's running some kind of real estate NFT business. HN doesn't like it: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=33878584
The only reason I want to post about him is his unique combination of low IQ, autism and narcissm, that makes him post tweets like this:
I didn't watch the video, but I'm sure it's fascinating.
I found out about him from his feud with Molly White, an outspoken crypto skeptic:
He's currently having a meltdown in an HN thread about her: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=36128484 (ctrl+f "leashless")
Hello and welcome to @Corp's semiannual laughing at Furryfox users thread.
Little background. There are three groups of people I feel need to go.
3. FurryFox users.
It today's FurryFox drama we have something not related to coping about there ever shrinking user base as Chromium browser supremacy ravages onwards to near domination.
Ads? In my FurryFox?
I suspect the poster is a chud due to hiding what he is reading on twitter, a known alt-nazi website
Also a massive ad that dims the background and makes you click?
Listen! We filed a Bugzilla! It's just a bug, right? RIGHT!?!?!!?!!
And no, supporting this under the guise of trying to earn revenue away from Google is a bit silly. A pop-up is a pop-up.
A browser that goes to great lengths to block all of the annoyances of the web (e.g. pop-ups) allowing their own annoyances through is just favoritism of itself. It is no better than Google Chrome plugging Google or > > > Edge plugging Bing Chat or whatever is new on the block.
Last thing Firefox needs is to be browser with built-in ads. In this arena, the first experience is the only one that matters. Do not let it be ads.
Funny thing is Chrome has a very clean UI. It's by nature because Google automatically benefits if you use the web, and more so if you use it through Chrome. Chrome doesn't really plug Google considering Google is the default search on all major browsers except Edge, and switching to a different provider is very easy (Google services do plug Chrome, on the other hand).
Meanwhile on a new Firefox install, I have to disable pocket, sponsored shortcuts, the new pinned tab, sponsored news articles (which are also present in Chrome iirc), and skip through the faceless girl telling me about diverse colors or some shit. Firefox is still by far the better choice, but yeah it's initially a bit annoying on a fresh install.
I've made several people switch from Chrome to Firefox this week because of the Manifest v. 3 fiasco. I told them "you'll see, it's not a memory hog like Chrome, and it's much less intrusive."
And you do this.
I love how fast the mods are locking down conversations relating to this topic.
Firefox is really sticking out for the wrong reasons today.
They do it for free for free software
Hehe, we didn't k-know y-you gois and gruls would be so upset. We will have another meeting about this thing we definitely had multiple meetings about previously and got signed off on.
Lots of upset Furryfox users. If you're a FurryFox user there are several cures.
HUGE UPDATE: AN INSIDER SOURCE WHO MODERATES LEAKED.CX HAS CONFIRMED TO ME THAT HE BELIEVES THIS IS LEGITIMATE
MusicMafia was a group of leakers active several years ago that arguably first brought the sale of leaked music in the general public. Through their website, http://musicmafia.to, and later a private domain, they sold tens of thousands of dollars worth of leaked music. This blatant infringement on copyright and computer hacking laws even brought them minor media attention.
Other escapades included hacking the twitters of many notable "artists," such as drake:
The value of these songs/files to collectors that MusicMafia possesses cannot be understated. One track in particular, the most notable track known as "Can U Be" by Kanye West, is valued at upwards of 40k. MusicMafia is, almost certainly, in possession of entire unreleased albums and discographies that could fetch over a hundred thousand dollars to the right people.
Unfortunately, the way that these leaked songs are acquired was/is some combination of social engineering, sim swapping, fraud, and credential stuffing, all of which are illegal and of great interest to the FBI, RIAA, and various other copyright enforcement bureaus . Recently, a teenage hacker that used the alias "Spirdark" actually got prison time for doing this in the UK https://www.xxlmag.com/hacker-lil-uzi-vert-sentenced-prison/. As such, leakers tend to want to protect their identities, not only from each other due to harassment, but due to the omnipresent threat of legal action. MusicMafia, the group which probably perpetrated some of the largest music leaks in recent memory, would want to protect this, but their identities have been kept secret thus far.
What is known about the "identity" or alias of MusicMafia, publicly at this time, is that they were a group of leakers in 2017, with the website http://musicmafia.to. After this website was shut down by the domain provider, they moved to a private, password protected site to transact business. Sometime around 2018 this website, and the "MusicMafia" alias, were both abandoned. In their place rose a new alias, "PRIVATEFRIEND" aka "PRIVATE" and afterwards "Germans." Whether privatefriend and germans are the entirety of the MusicMafia team, one remnant member, or somewhere in between isn't for me to say. However, what is known is that these aliases stemming from MusicMafia administered the site "http://leakth.is" which shut down in 2021, but until then was the central hub for music leaks and sales. It was also an open secret that, on this website, many sellers were basically PRIVATEFRIEND using different aliases.
What happened today
You might recall the website http://leaked.cx from my previous post regarding someone who used AI to fake frank ocean tracks and scammed collectors out of 15k (check my profile). Well, after http://leakth.is was shut down in 2021, this website took its place, and is now the new hub for music leaking online.
Today at 7AM, someone by the name "MusicMafia2023" made a post to http://leaked.cx advertising the website http://musicmafia.info, and threatening the MusicMafia team with a doxx unless they responded to their email. Furthermore, this user says he will update the .info website with more and more information every 24 hours. You might recall that MusicMafia stopped being a thing in late 2017-early 2018, this is true, but like I said the user/users behind it are probably still active. The post can be found here (https://leaked.cx/threads/music-mafia-return.119939/). Currently, the user MusicMafia2023 who is threatening this doxx is actually active in the thread.
This was written off as a r-slurred prank/someone bullpooping by pretty much everyone, including me. That is because the website pretty much only contained public information that I've relayed to you just now, and didn't have any details besides vague "[redacted]" marks. That is, until around one hour ago, when MusicMafia2023 updated his website with this information:
If you can't read between the lines here, MusicMafia2023 has allegedly linked a public Spotify account (under a real person's name) to music leaks that MusicMafia sold years after it was added to their playlists. If legitimate, this screenshot alone is pretty much 80% of the way towards a full doxx.
What is at stake
I already mentioned how valuable the "vault" of unreleased songs is in MusicMafia's (or the former members of) possession - think 150k, minimum. The stakes of this should also be clear - if they get doxxed, this would immediately be of great interest to every record label and copyright enforcement agency in the western hemisphere.
Is MusicMafia2023 legit? Is he bullpooping? What does he want?
As this saga continues, I will update this thread. But keep in mind, this might be an elaborate troll and I have fallen for the bait like a r-slur.
UPDATE 1: I believe this to be a legitimate doxx and so do many other longtime leakers
UPDATE 2: The doxxer is currently arguing on coded language with a leaker he alleges to be involved with MusicMafia on that public forum page lmbo
Context: Some black guy was going to be the first BIPOC to present a keynote at RustConf, but got downgraded to a regular talk because nerds were salty about some blog where he criticised Rust for some nerd shit. Obviously this was racism and not just autists being autists, because he's the only negro magical enough to care about Rust. Now there's a new wave of drama I can't be bothered to understand, go read it for yourself.
Congrats for making this another IITJEE. Sad.
The thing is good companies will follow good guidelines. They will have good architecture discussions, you will hear terms like orchestrator thrown at you every other day.
In startup the agenda is to make things. It will be like do things and make things chahe kaise v.
Having experience in both is good.
But having theese experience in service based is that possible? Most of the folks don't want to be getting into the software engineering's awesomeness. They don't want to know about the computer Science behind it.
To know all that it's required to be around people who have that kind of motivation.
Also it's learning the core principles of engineering. What's there with IIT JEE. It ain't just DSA bruh. All the things which I said are the heart of Engineering. You gotta love it if you're in this sub. [-49]
Shut up bro it's not another competitive exam it's a company to work in. There are thousands of other companies better than fang stop watching yt.
That's the problem where you don't read it correctly & spread gyaan. Said the word "prod based" too. Stop being unfocused and unattentive. [-29]
Aa gaye Didi Bhaiyya motivated freshers

Getting into faang now a days looks like an achievement and everybody is in a rat race for that, people don't think what they can achieve or learn from their it career rather than getting into faang , after almost 10years it career atleast I know better WLB and good pay to sustain you and your family along with some savings is what most of us carve for, I have the constant pressure inside faang effects mental health for many people.
Kahan jaye fir? Na padhein? Saari achi companies toh prod based hi h na almost. Seekhne Kahan milega? Prod mein h na.
Service based mein comparatively less h. [-108]
Also, be ready to get laid off randomly from these companies.
Also, be ready to die randomly from some accident.
Yes I will be ready tho. Such is life. [-31]
look beyond FAANG
Maturity is when you realise FAANG is the worst for work life and stability. There are so many good options out there.
OP has no sense of how the real world works and derives his understanding of the world from YouTube videos and day dreams.
Your post lacks common sense. You are not asking real questions or advice. You just want us to reinforce your expectations which are childish and immature. Or you want us to discourage you and use that as fuel to achieve your goals.
Either way, you are gonna lose.
Get a job, do it, learn some common sense and then ask us what your problems are.
Baby that was a statement that I will do. So unfocused you are. Nd for reference my source of information are something like "7yrs exp London guy product consultant, previously worked with practo, many more. Just an example. Many of the sources are like this." [-4]

Asked for comment, a Google spokesperson told IGN that it was a "small experiment."
"We're running a small experiment globally that urges viewers with ad blockers enabled to allow ads on YouTube or try YouTube Premium," they said via email. "Ad blocker detection is not new, and other publishers regularly ask viewers to disable ad blockers."

Sam Altman CEO of OpenAI cries Wolf to Senate panel, decides to play on the fear narrative (which politicians take hook, line and sinker) - - to call for licensing and regulation - - which only benefits major players, of course which huge pockets to bribe politicians even more.
