schestowitz-TRgulag search has begun indexing and presenting pertinent pages in new.tmAug 06 08:02
schestowitz-TRI'm just checking as you said they would not be indexing new sites, or barelyAug 06 08:02
schestowitz-TRI think it follows links from IRC logsAug 06 08:02
schestowitz-TRrianne has gotten comfortable with the submission processAug 06 08:02
schestowitz-TRyesterday she got stuck and DB was locked again when she gave upAug 06 08:02
schestowitz-TRturns out it was ampersandAug 06 08:02
schestowitz-TRsometimes they are inside URLs and sometimes no spaces between themAug 06 08:02
schestowitz-TRI told her to find them and change/remove themAug 06 08:02
schestowitz-TRgm, cheers fore the linksAug 06 08:31
Techrights-secnpAug 06 08:32
Techrights-sectidy produces some warnings, but they are maybe not the easiest to spotAug 06 08:32
Techrights-secthe locking in sqlite3 is quite simplified but it is importantAug 06 08:32
schestowitz-TRI've found a new way o show in context android vs windowsAug 06 08:32
schestowitz-TRtoday I'll look closely into the pi and how to make it work better esp. ipfsAug 06 08:32
schestowitz-TRwow, today just 3 new items in counterpunch rss feedsAug 06 08:37
schestowitz-TRthere used to be like 50 or moreAug 06 08:37
schestowitz-TRbtw, when tuxmachines has rss feed (I saw you started coding it yesterday) we can submit that to some sitesAug 06 08:37
schestowitz-TRand give it visibilityAug 06 08:37
schestowitz-TRlast night I did a 2-min video about linuxtoday Aug 06 08:37
schestowitz-TRit has since then published 2 more webspamAug 06 08:37
Techrights-secackAug 06 08:45
Techrights-secyes, but we should probably be blocking the spiders until the site is in Aug 06 08:45
Techrights-secproduction, it is not wise to drive traffic to a site still in late alphaAug 06 08:45
Techrights-secstageAug 06 08:45
Techrights-secbtw EXT ACLs needed adjusting again.  EXT sure is difficult in a shared contextAug 06 08:45
Techrights-secafaik nowhere else has used MQTT for Git notifications Aug 06 08:45
schestowitz-TRit is very plausable as many things we do in TR and TM we do for the first time esp. in the context of gemini and to some extent ipfsAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TRbecause they're young and smallAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TRon www, doing things first or being first is harder because it's hard to keep track of everything that goes on thereAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TReven in irc we 'innovated' a number of thingsAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TRbut not something truly majorAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TRyou can add something on top of an existing protocol or combined protocolAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TRlike using gemini to give an up-toi-date index of hashes for ipfsAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TRwhen you push to git the system bell and visible popup in knotify will tell meAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TRthen I run the script to see, with colour, all the latest changes in the two reposAug 06 08:46
schestowitz-TR*plausibleAug 06 08:46
Techrights-secyesAug 06 08:48
Techrights-secone could make a public MQTT broker, one where the clients don't have to Aug 06 08:48
Techrights-secidentify themselves, and use it to push a subset of RSS :/Aug 06 08:48
Techrights-secniceAug 06 08:48
schestowitz-TRwhat you said about public mqtt broker occurred to me ysterday Aug 06 08:49
schestowitz-TRrss with less bandiwithAug 06 08:49
schestowitz-TRpush versus pullAug 06 08:49
schestowitz-TRlike push notifications, but for site updates with another protcolAug 06 08:49
schestowitz-TRI forgot the name of the protocol of push notification, there are at least a coupleAug 06 08:49
schestowitz-TRvis-a-vis gitlab is canning many projects to "save" 11 million a yearAug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRall that social control media loss leader BSAug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRthey were used to give people push notifications to their fake friendsAug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRover phoens etc.Aug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRat cost of abndwidthAug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRbut those people are now locked in to that vendor-specific push notif "disserviceAug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRso they cannot quitAug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRor, if they do, their 'friends' ' "phones" will no longer notify themAug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRso people must learn toAug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRa) self host (it's not free)Aug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TR(see gitlab)Aug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRb) do theior own notifications, e.g. blog doamin with rss, do not outsoutce. gulag youtube no longer notified ssubscribers, it's not as addictive as Aug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRaujtoplay at end and "suggestions"Aug 06 08:52
schestowitz-TRand infinite scrollsAug 06 08:52
Techrights-secyes, http is an inefficient wrapperAug 06 08:53
Techrights-secbut it would require an MQTT client as a browser pluging and I'm not sureAug 06 08:53
Techrights-secwhat the upper limit on connections would be at the broker level.Aug 06 08:53
Techrights-secThere is a test broker which sees heavy traffic:Aug 06 08:53
Techrights-sec 06 08:53
-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-test.mosquitto.orgAug 06 08:53
schestowitz-TRre mosquitto, I don't know the protocolAug 06 08:57
schestowitz-TRbut I can imagine it habitually pings the clients to make sure it's still alive and the IP address is still currentAug 06 08:57
schestowitz-TRso that when there's a message on $topic, it'll send a notification to all the right sessions, if they're not expiredAug 06 08:57
schestowitz-TRso there must be some "pulses" going on even when there is no update to sendAug 06 08:57
schestowitz-TRthere are other factors that evade me atm, but those protocols suck because they give ytou stuff TODOAug 06 08:57
schestowitz-TRevcen when you're not prepared, not when you actually ask for anyAug 06 08:57
schestowitz-TRthat's why I check my email; at most once a dayAug 06 08:57
schestowitz-TRrss: "boss, I'm free now. give me work please."Aug 06 08:57
schestowitz-TRnotifications/email always-on: "danny, sorry for interrupting you, I have another thing for you to do"Aug 06 08:57
Techrights-secmosquitto is one set of programs, MQTT is the protoco.  It's rather simple.Aug 06 08:58
Techrights-secif I understand correctly it mainly uses TCP itself to maintain the connectionAug 06 08:58
Techrights-secyes push vs pullAug 06 08:58
Techrights-secone of the reasons the Web took off was because it was pullAug 06 08:58
schestowitz-TRbrb, handover at workAug 06 09:00
schestowitz-TRemail can be "pull" alsoAug 06 09:01
schestowitz-TRit used to be in the dial-up eraAug 06 09:01
schestowitz-TRguess which is more addictive, more stressful, and which harms productivityAug 06 09:01
Techrights-secyes but too many idiots mistake webmail for e-mail and due to the inconvenienceAug 06 09:02
Techrights-secof web mail, combined with them leaving it on 24/7, mistake e-mail for beingAug 06 09:02
Techrights-secdifficult.  They are confusing terrible client software with the protocol itselfAug 06 09:02
Techrights-secand GAFAM aims to make that confusion worse in an apparent attempt to gainAug 06 09:02
Techrights-seccontrol over the relevant protocols and turn them into a proprietary serviceAug 06 09:02
Techrights-secwhich they alone control and monitorAug 06 09:02
Techrights-secackAug 06 09:02
schestowitz-TRdoneAug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRfree againAug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRwhat I'd like to know isAug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRand I've said it out loud for 3-4 years alreadyAug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRwhere are people "online" going?Aug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRno doubt the www is perishingAug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRI think because of 'webapps' and 'apps'Aug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRbut I'm out of touchAug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRbecause I did not embrace fashionable consumerismAug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRso I don't know what tiktok and "apps" are like in 2022Aug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRit's like asking rms about systemdAug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TR(he said he never installed gnu/linux himself)Aug 06 09:12
schestowitz-TRor asking the amish about tractorsAug 06 09:13
Techrights-secackAug 06 09:18
schestowitz-TRrms has been very focused on giving talksAug 06 09:18
schestowitz-TRand studying threatsAug 06 09:18
schestowitz-TRwhich is fair enoughAug 06 09:18
schestowitz-TRhe lets the others help him with technical things, inc. operationg (they're like his "shabbos goys")Aug 06 09:18
schestowitz-TRbut when it comes to some of those "phone" things I too must admit, I'm in the darkAug 06 09:18
schestowitz-TRalso, I never saw a spy meterAug 06 09:18
schestowitz-TRbut the main concern is, 1) they are NOT needed 2) they will get worse over time (more sensors)Aug 06 09:19
schestowitz-TRwith routers you could argue there is a necessityAug 06 09:19
schestowitz-TRspy meters are an extension to the router which exists for a single purpose that's not requiring yet another piece of ewasteAug 06 09:19
Techrights-secackAug 06 09:22
Techrights-secprobablyAug 06 09:22
Techrights-secone contributing factor is the load that idle wall warts put on the gridAug 06 09:22
schestowitz-TRthis morning in geminispace (latest, planet)Aug 06 09:22
schestowitz-TRI read not one but two posts on energy problems Aug 06 09:22
schestowitz-TRmore connection and electric issuesAug 06 09:22
schestowitz-TRcombined with what rianne told me about the tram and outages in shopsAug 06 09:22
schestowitz-TRI'm starting to wonder if there's an energy crisis the media says too little aboutAug 06 09:22
schestowitz-TRand it not limited just to priceAug 06 09:23
schestowitz-TRI can find you the two gemini:// linksAug 06 09:23
schestowitz-TRI put them in the irc channel actualluyAug 06 09:23
schestowitz-TRI hope out Network/Internet uptime will still be good and no UPS will be neededAug 06 09:23
schestowitz-TRUPS = more manufacturing (waste), much like A/C to 'combat' heatingAug 06 09:24
schestowitz-TRthen it draws up some powerAug 06 09:24
schestowitz-TRthey tell us spy meters will help save energyAug 06 09:24
schestowitz-TRas if they're made out of thin air and run on "thetans"Aug 06 09:25
schestowitz-TR(same for EVs)Aug 06 09:25
schestowitz-TRour current router (installed january 2021 IIRC, after our complaints; the engineer told us to demand a new one) has very good uptimeAug 06 09:28
schestowitz-TRand no network hangups, or very rare onesAug 06 09:28
schestowitz-TRI don't take this for granted; it wasn't like this beforeAug 06 09:28
schestowitz-TRthe upstream provider (ISP) has also been OK since thenAug 06 09:28
schestowitz-TRwhen I had networ problem it was electic outage or my own mistakes (or oven triggering a fuse)Aug 06 09:28
schestowitz-TR"you don't appreciate things... until you lose them..."Aug 06 09:28
schestowitz-TR "Since I've started hosting from home, my internet and electricity has been more unreliable than ever." gemini:// 06 09:28
Techrights-secackAug 06 09:32
schestowitz-TRI exported my own router settings (less than 150 lines) to a fileAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRit lets you save the most hedious sort of file you even sawAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRit's like a soup of binary and asciiAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRbut you can see bits and bobs that you put inAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRthey don't use ini or json or xmlAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRit's ridiculousAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRI saved these last summer when they "tried" to= put us on fibre (first home in this area)Aug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRand I wanted to be able to import the same stuff into the "new" routerAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRwhich looks exactly the same, except minor differenceeAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRand BT gave me conflicting messages about compatibilityAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TReither way, they seemed unready to support this new serviceAug 06 09:37
schestowitz-TRand I reckoned as an "experiment" I would get worse servicesAug 06 09:38
schestowitz-TRlack of expirtise and effect on only one user, not whole block of homesAug 06 09:38
schestowitz-TRthey compensated us almost 100 pounds for all the troubleAug 06 09:38
schestowitz-TRwe still have the fibre equipment, not connected to the socket, inside the homeAug 06 09:38
schestowitz-TRit'll come in handy as this sort of service matures sufficientlyAug 06 09:38
Techrights-secJSON?Aug 06 09:38
schestowitz-TRnot jsonAug 06 09:43
schestowitz-TRI could send you the file, but somewhere in it there are likely passwordsAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRwithout power, you typically can have no connectionsAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRwithout connections you could still have powerAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRthe other day (tue.) when the power was off I went us to be productiveAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRrianne said that she'd rather have no power than no running waterAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRbut in winter you cannot bathe without some level of water heatingAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRcall me sceptics or paranoid, but jusding by trends I read about, cost won't be the sole issue Aug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRwhen it comes to CLEAN water being available or a steadfy flow of powerAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRIn african there is this thing called GPL that showed up in my feedsAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRthey have lots of outages and sometimes even planned blackoutsAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRlike, you need to prepare for times of the day without powerAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRand charge applicance accordinglyAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRthis, to me, is a whole new concept/monsterAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRpower "share" or rationingAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRI'd hate to live in a world with water rationingAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRat the moment they just have things like "hose bans"Aug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRyou sent me a link about spain trying to limit or police A/C thermostatsAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRmaybe first in public places where enforcers can goAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRmaybe later in proprietary firmware..Aug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRspy meters come to mind hereAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRwhy you might NOT want to have oneAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRgive me the bits (network)Aug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRgive me waterAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRgive me voltageAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TRhow it's used is my own gaddamn businessAug 06 09:44
schestowitz-TR---Aug 06 09:53
schestowitz-TRrianne said that in mindanao they used to have power rationing or outtage hours (planned)Aug 06 09:53
schestowitz-TRand in manila is there's elnino they do awater ratiuoning tooAug 06 09:53
Techrights-secwater distribution is becoming more unsteady and unevenAug 06 09:54
Techrights-secin places which still have water it is coming more often in large dosesAug 06 09:54
Techrights-secrather than spread out over timeAug 06 09:54
Techrights-secmany place have had power rationing but in many situations it is due to Aug 06 09:54
Techrights-secprivatization because it is not profitable to deploy more capacity untilAug 06 09:54
Techrights-secthere is more demand.  Brownouts, however, destroy equipment, even heavyAug 06 09:54
Techrights-secstuff like refrigeratorsAug 06 09:54
Techrights-secagain the various wastages cause problems with load;Aug 06 09:54
Techrights-secat the scale that "smartphones" are deployed worldwide, and given thatAug 06 09:54
Techrights-secthey need to be recharged muliptle times per day, they are collectivelyAug 06 09:54
Techrights-secprobably one of the world's largest drains on the gridAug 06 09:54
Techrights-sec... if considered as a single line itemAug 06 09:54
schestowitz-TRbtw, did you see the post about android in africa?Aug 06 09:57
schestowitz-TRwow, 18% windows... no wonder the media is too busy harping about "chrome OS" vs "Windows"Aug 06 09:57
schestowitz-TRliving in a more GAFAM universe where everyone can blow $1000 on a laptop instead ofAug 06 09:57
schestowitz-TRa budget $100 "smart" phone from "belt and braces" landAug 06 09:57
Techrights-sec"tracking devices which also happen to make calls"Aug 06 09:58
schestowitz-TRrianne now telling me rocking firdge storiesAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRdue to unsteady power levels in some placesAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRyou know, last week I tried to recall who came up with that sentenceAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRnot sure if it was ioerror, or me (maybe he repeated me), or rms, or maybe we all borrowed that from someone elseAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRrms said "stalin's dream"Aug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TR"also happen to make calls" is jakeAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRbut maybe inspired by something he had read from meAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRit's not important anywayAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRI can at least say I popularised some terms, not big like "brexit" Aug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRbut still... changing how people communicate issues and the vocabulary helps tackle issuesAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRopenwashing became more widespreadAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRfauxopen never caught on sflc said "giveUpGithub"Aug 06 10:03
Techrights-sec"tracking devices which also happen to make calls"Aug 06 10:03
Techrights-secI think it was jakeAug 06 10:03
Techrights-secat least he was the first early onAug 06 10:03
Techrights-secackAug 06 10:03
schestowitz-TRI wondered the same and I assumed it was coined by him, based on nothing but me seeing him adopting and using the term a lotAug 06 10:04
schestowitz-TRmasnick did a number of important things/contributions in the vocabulary sense, but like godwin with "godwin's law"Aug 06 10:10
schestowitz-TRmasnick did "streisand effect"Aug 06 10:10
schestowitz-TRwhich is still in use to this dy Aug 06 10:10
schestowitz-TRof course techdirt lost much of the influence it had in the golden era of the web after msie was elbowed asideAug 06 10:10
Techrights-secackAug 06 10:10
Techrights-secI should read techdirt more often.  When he sticks to purely technical mattersAug 06 10:10
Techrights-seche and tech policy, he is quite good.  But on other topics he exhibits someAug 06 10:10
Techrights-secsigns of severe social control media poisoningAug 06 10:10
schestowitz-TRhe or his colleagues are sceptical of regulations and too defensive of 1) gafam 2) social control mediaAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRcalling everything a "panic" even where legitimate concerns do exist Aug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRI don't read techdirt outside of kate text editor, so I honestly don't know who writes whatAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRI don't even know if moody sitll writes thereAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRobservation: techdirt used to get over 200 comments per post, for good posts at leastAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRnowadays it's often less than a dozen... last I checkedeAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRbut techdirt does not do irc and never did ircAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRso for mike and co to receive feedback from readers they rely too much on sh*t like twitterAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRand are unable to let goAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRfeedback is importatAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRI don't know the words to explain the phenomenonAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TRbut writing to a wall or getting no sensory feedback is hardAug 06 10:16
schestowitz-TReven if you know someone reads itAug 06 10:17
schestowitz-TRlike publishing a book, not knowing anything except how many copies were printed (not sold)Aug 06 10:17
schestowitz-TRand what the readrs thingAug 06 10:17

schestowitz-TRand is gradually weaning himself OFF windowsAug 06 10:17
Techrights-secsometimesAug 06 10:18
Techrights-secI really wish Glyn would have some kind of syndication because I will go toAug 06 10:18
Techrights-seca site specifically to read what he wrote even if it's a site I would otherwiseAug 06 10:18
Techrights-secnot prioritizeAug 06 10:18
Techrights-secsome of that is the public is no longer used to being allowed to commentAug 06 10:18
schestowitz-TRmoody's work is widely scattred by the virtue of his ability to do gainful employment as a writerAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRars, linux journal, techdirt...Aug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRI sadly wasted many years writing shit in social control media where I could do a better job writing the same in my Weblog from 2004Aug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRI'm making up for it now, little by little...Aug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRsome american cousins of mine read it for sureAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRremember that tuxmachines still has an android "app", but I don't know if it is compatible with latest android versionsAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRit's basically a preloaded RSS readerAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRwith push notifications something better can be doneAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRbut don't want to condone use of spyphonesAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRthe other day on rianne's laptop I tested web-based access to irc @ tuxmachinesAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRthere are about 20-25 users online in that channelsAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRit shows site updatesAug 06 10:23
schestowitz-TRbut no real community thereAug 06 10:23
