schestowitz__[TR]                    <p>With multicore systems now common, the project has shifted toward scalability and reliability.

Techrights-sec2the part about the host names.  it is possible (with changes) to have Dec 24 04:11 go to different machines depending on which protocolDec 24 04:11
Techrights-sec2is requested.  But the method of hostnames would have to be very differentDec 24 04:11
Techrights-sec2it works with A namesDec 24 04:11
Techrights-sec2not CNAMESDec 24 04:11
schestowitz-TR2I pressed CRTL+S in the wrong windows AND machineDec 24 04:14
schestowitz-TR2That seems to have stopped the ytalk sessionDec 24 04:14
Techrights-sec2npDec 24 04:14
schestowitz-TR2last line I for was "not CNAMES"Dec 24 04:17
schestowitz-TR2yes, I knowq this is in theory possibleDec 24 04:17
schestowitz-TR2but I never looked into itDec 24 04:17
Techrights-sec2It'd require some changes.  A names would have to be used differently.Dec 24 04:19
Techrights-sec2The question is how and where would it save time or effort.Dec 24 04:19
schestowitz-TR2btw, I've just almost emptied the fridge. freezer also quite vacant, by intention, as ws we plan to haul overe tons of discounted items this morningDec 24 04:20
schestowitz-TR2the key idea is, plan time and place (small,  quiet)Dec 24 04:23
schestowitz-TR2and reduce number of visits. when "everything must go" to time is optimalDec 24 04:23
Techrights-sec2excellent.  avoid crowds though.Dec 24 04:24
Techrights-sec2freezers are great for food storage, highly underratedDec 24 04:25
Techrights-sec2some of the stores here have crowds at those hours nowadays :(Dec 24 04:25
schestowitz-TR2yes, we thought about buying more freezers, but considering the cost of keeping them connected and cost of purchase we were not sure it's economicDec 24 04:25
schestowitz-TR2also, the priority this past week was to mostly empty the greezerDec 24 04:25

Techrights-sec2food banks are seeing growing needs  Dec 24 04:28
Techrights-sec2dumpter divers were doing it for fun but some are not doing it only for funDec 24 04:28
Techrights-sec2now stores hid and/or lock their dumpstersDec 24 04:28
Techrights-sec2 24 04:28
Techrights-sec2the markdowns at the end of the day at the stores is not much of a discountDec 24 04:28

In this submission, we urge the TPSB to centre precaution, substantive equality, human rights, privacy protections, transparency, and accountability in its policy on the use of AI technology by the Dec 24 05:20
schestowitz__[TR]Toronto Police Services (TPS). Further, we implore the Board to continue to seek out the guidance and expertise of AI and technology scholars and advocates; equality and human rights experts; affected communities and their members, including historically marginalized communities; and other relevant stakeholders when developing and implementing policies related to the adoption and use of AI by the TPS today, and into the future. Finally, we Dec 24 05:20
schestowitz__[TR]recommend that the TPSB place an immediate moratorium on law enforcement use of algorithmic policing technologies that do not meet minimum prerequisite conditions of reliability, necessity, and proportionality.1 We appreciate and recognize that our comments will be shared publicly.</p></blockquote></li>Dec 24 05:20

schestowitz__[TR]                        <p>When I present my arguments on the subject, the most frequent argument I hear in response is something like the following: “artists have to eat, too”. The answer to this argument is so mind-bogglingly obvious that, in the absence of understanding, it starkly illuminates just how successful capitalism has been in corrupting a broad human understanding of empathy. So, I will spell the answer out: why do we have Dec 24 05:41
