I write code and mess with computers.

I used it for a while (a few years) before getting a VPN. I couldn’t stand the horrible download speeds mostly, but there were always bugs. Not to mention the Arch support randomly breaking for months(?).

Sometimes torrents just refused to download anything at all too, it was pretty annoying. Wouldn’t even pull metadata.

Maybe it’s improved since the year or so since I dropped it, but the dev team seems to be going off the deep end with weird crypto fair-share downloading even as the bug trackers keeps growing.

It’s a shame too because the idea of decentralized torrents is great.

Is there any way to git-send-mail to Github/lab projects? Most stuff I interact with is on Github

For me, it’s quicker if I don’t remember the exact file name or location. Just see a list, enter a dir, repeat. Instead of typing ls and cd, it’s hjkl movement

I don’t use NFT’s personally, but isn’t the idea to peove you own an asset, not just to serve it like a torrent would?

I second this, but I think some of their personal configs go a bit overboard, at least the i3 version. I guess it’s not really their “vision” to be a literal Arch install script though.

I’ve used it for a while. Not sure how nnn compares, but it works well for me. Can set it up to render images with w3c, open PDFs in stuff like Zathura, etc.

I thought they wrote their own STT engine? Guess it was a TTS though.

After looking it up I do see what you’re talking about though. They say they proxy everything so your IP doesn’t touch the Google servers. But I also see you can run your own Mozilla DeepSpeech & use that instead, which seems like a decent option. It’s just not the default.

I’ve been waiting to get the v2 model, but it’s taking so long I might make my own with a raspberry pi and their software.

Tons of lighter services you can run. Even a media server is doable if you’re direct streaming instead of transcoding. Just depends what you want really.

DNS (PiHole) is the super obvious choice, but you could do a personal VPN, email server, idk. The list is pretty endless.

0 a.d. is pretty fun. I like messing around in either bot or online matches. It could use some QoL improvements though.

The movement of a majority to gmail makes some sense. Android (and all other google services) basically forces users into making a google/gmail account. Not to mention people tend to flock to the same services once they start snowballing in popularity.

Before gmail, everyone (that I knew) was on AOL, which (probably) got its users from requiring accounts to use their network back in the day. I don’t remember it that well though, so I might be wrong there…

An echo chamber is a “safe space” where, in general, no one disagrees with some core idea/ideology. Thus with no differing opinion, people build on each other and strengthen their opinion that they are right.

Example: a nazi forum. Only nazis are allowed, anyone else gets banned. This removes the mere thought they could be wrong, and makes its nazi members more emboldened.

The same thing happens for all crap online - communists, leftists, white suppremists, pedophiles, dog fighters, BSD evangelists, whatever. Whether you are “right” isn’t important, just removing any alternatives closes off your mind to the possibility of more.

TLDR: groupthink bubbles bad. Interacting with people of differing opinions is good. It’s how we grow as people.

Kind of nuts so many companies don’t do email verification. That would solve this issue more or less. Or just use a different domain like she mentions.

Most people are under some naieve assumption that devs could just all work on the same thing, instead of spreading efforts across many projects.

Sure we’d probably get further if we all joined hands and sang kumbayah, but it doesn’t work well in the real world. Lack of understanding, unfamiliarity with certain systems, no interest or desire, thinking the current system is a lost cause, etc. Many reasons it doesn’t work.

Where did you get that info? Their site says it’s 2 manufacturing defects in the battery.

Specifically it says

The problem consists of two LG manufacturing defects (a torn anode tab and folded separator) that, in rare circumstances, can simultaneously present in a single battery cell in the LG battery module.

Also, the Bolt does have battery heating/cooling last I checked. The Nissan Leaf, however, doesn’t.

On the upside, I bet a used Bolt will be really cheap now. Just need to wait for the fixed battery and it’s a solid option.

Weird. Do they actually need the money they get from this? I thought they had a ton of sponsors already.

It’s open core, but their free hosting runs on the closed source extension of the core for businesses. You’re only running the OSS if you self-host the free version I believe.

Good article, but the site’s colorscheme bothers me 🙃

Anyways, another to add to the list of hosts is https://codeberg.org/ It’s just Gitea but hosted for public use.

Or just yay (it’s shorthand for yay -Syu)

I don’t really see how much bad could come of it. Maybe they start trying to hamfist ToS or license changes into the code, but then it’ll be forked.

At worst they do some crazy data harvesting on the main instance, causing an exodus of users onto either self-hosted or other public instances.

The article talks about homomorphic encryption, not brute-forcing ecnryption.

This means they’re looking at ways to get analytics out of their own platform’s data without first decrypting it. Arguably increasing security of the system as a whole, since then the data itself isn’t on the system in a decrypted state.

Of course they’ll need to decrypt the anaylitics to read them, but the idea is that’s less of a security risk that way. This topic is still a bit above my understanding though, so I might be wrong here.

I’m aware that exists at a higher level, but I meant at the literal routing level (level 3 on OSI if I remember it right). Then everything is anonymized by default, not just things you proxy over Tor/I2P/etc. Anonymity should be the default, not the exception.

A free & anonymous meshnet is just a pipedream of mine more than anything. Albeit I know there are versions of this idea, but they often exists within a tiny 1-5 mile bubble in some random state/country, and usually exist seperate from the clearnet.

“Save $5/mo and get accused of pedophilia” could be their slogan.

I’ve always thought we need anonyimity at the router level (like an anonymous DHT mesh), but I know that’d probably be impossible to have reasonable speeds with something like that…

An accidental bitwise AND when they wanted logical. Amazing lol

But for real, do they not test their shit? All they’d have to do is try to log in. That’s such a low bar to miss.

Some charge controllers use top and/or bottom buffers on a battery as places to stop charging/discharging. The advantage is longer battery lifespan, but at the cost of lower capacity.

As the battery ages & naturally loses capacity, those buffers can then be shrunk to give back what’s been lost, retaining your usable capacity.

I know this is a common feature in EV’s, but not sure about phones.

I want to like it, but it drives me nuts not having code blocks (with or without syntax highlighting).

Do you have a link for that info? I know they’ve been working on it but I haven’t seen news in a while.

EU != USA.
Do they even have something akin to Miranda rights?

I got curious and found Article 10 of the ECHR which refers to their version of freedom of speech and it does have restrictions based on the following:

  • interests of national security
  • territorial integrity or public safety
  • prevention of disorder or crime
  • protection of health or morals
  • protection of the reputation or the rights of others
  • preventing the disclosure of information received in confidence
  • maintaining the authority and impartiality of the judiciary

I could see how that could be misused by any politicians to do as they please. But we have the same problems in the USA so no suprise there.

If it goes open-source, maybe there’ll be a selfhosted option for the server-side features? Idk, sharing a terminal is kind of weird though

Hmm. Doesn’t look too bad. Might give it a shot when I have some time. I though federation especially would be harder than it is.

Is there nothing to setup for preventing spam & misuse?

If you were running a media server from home to some of your family and/or friends, you could benefit from this. For example, a single 4k stream can use up to 120Mbps.

And that doesn’t even account for the actual people on the network, or other things running on the server and/or other servers.

See also: LibreWolf. I believe it’s more or less the same idea, but more up-to-date.

Some copy-left licenses might already cover closed-source redistribution like this. But I’m guessing we’d need a court to decide that for sure.

Thing is, they could just crawl all public code. It wouldn’t even need to be on their site, just takes more work.

Dang he allegedly got attacked with a knife by a tresspasser. That’s some top-shelf stupidity over code. All the more reason to protect your privacy I guess.
