DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, Anyway, violent crime impacts you on an ongoing basis under federal law even if you leave the state of Illinois for one that cares about your Constitutional freedoms.Jun 25 02:25
DaemonFCAnd they can make anything a "violent" crime.Jun 25 02:25
DaemonFCThey can make anything sound worse than it is.Jun 25 02:25
DaemonFCThey're very very good at extracting false confessions.Jun 25 02:25
DaemonFCSo it's like, I played the cards I had and I did better than most people do in court. Most white people anyway.Jun 25 02:26
DaemonFCThe court system seems to enjoy lashing out irrationally with overly harsh punishments against white people due to white guilt among the judges and other court officials.Jun 25 02:26
DaemonFCMinceR would say this goes along with the idea that you can make things better for some by making them worse for others.Jun 25 02:27
DaemonFCThen everyone does poorly and it balances out, right?Jun 25 02:27
MinceRyou said thisJun 25 02:53
MinceRi think it's a counterproductive ideaJun 25 02:53

Techrights-sec2I'm not sure of the reasons, just that the growth accelerates after calamitiesJun 25 08:23
Techrights-sec2yes, the nordic countries were the model of success in that and many otherJun 25 08:23

Techrights-sec2and pensions help there too.  The US has been eliminating all three, the oneJun 25 08:25
Techrights-sec2that hurts there the most is the elimination of public education which took aJun 25 08:25

Techrights-sec2about the smearing of the deposition tapes (and other critique of Bill) it wouldJun 25 08:28
Techrights-sec2be impossible to prove, aside from observed phenomenaJun 25 08:28
schestowitz-TRI think there might be more pluasible explanationJun 25 08:29
schestowitz-TRI also think that over-hypothesising about this tie-up with buffs and crank Jun 25 08:29
schestowitz-TRcan in itself be used to discredit criticsJun 25 08:29
schestowitz-TRwhich is why I want to be sure that it makes senseJun 25 08:29
Techrights-sec2the causal relationship there can be from either ditection, the cranks canJun 25 08:29
Techrights-sec2have picked up the material spontaneously.  nevertheless it will be used toJun 25 08:29
Techrights-sec2discredit any and all criticism by associationJun 25 08:29
schestowitz-TRlet's see if the media plays ball for themJun 25 08:30
schestowitz-TRI saw billBC doing this not in relation to the tapoesJun 25 08:30
schestowitz-TRbut in relation to vaccinesJun 25 08:30
Techrights-sec2I would expect that they will continue to play ball, they do now, and have in   Jun 25 08:31
Techrights-sec2the pastJun 25 08:31
Techrights-sec2right, the goal is for them to discredit any critique or reproach of BillJun 25 08:31
schestowitz-TRfor now I'd just ignore themJun 25 08:32
schestowitz-TRand focus on the unfolding issuesJun 25 08:32

Techrights-sec2yes that's mostly what I'm doing but noticed the huge upswing such that one Jun 25 08:32
Techrights-sec2has to waste a lot of time evaluating /who/'s posted the videos so as to avoidJun 25 08:32
Techrights-sec2sending the wrong ones traffic Jun 25 08:32
schestowitz-TRto lead up with an example, last night I ranted to rianne that she was watching a bunch of idiots on youtubeJun 25 08:34
schestowitz-TRlike the one about VAT in grocery shoppingJun 25 08:34
schestowitz-TRI told her this is why I try to avoid random "person with camera"Jun 25 08:34
schestowitz-TRthere's no quality control at allJun 25 08:34
schestowitz-TRand there are better avenues for informationJun 25 08:34
schestowitz-TRwhich is at least verified a bitJun 25 08:34
schestowitz-TRshe often reads a lot of yoioutube comments tooJun 25 08:34
schestowitz-TRwhich is even worseJun 25 08:34
Techrights-sec2the comments there are usually even more uninformed (at best) and often   Jun 25 08:36
Techrights-sec2misinformed.  I have not seen any credible attempt to teach evaluation of Jun 25 08:36
Techrights-sec2sources since the 1990s.  There are ongoing attempts but they are no longerJun 25 08:36
Techrights-sec2credible and have fatal flaws in their methodology and actually facilitateJun 25 08:36

schestowitz-TRpardon change of topicJun 25 08:39
schestowitz-TRyesterday traffic on the gemini proxy doubledJun 25 08:39
schestowitz-TRI don't know whyJun 25 08:39
schestowitz-TRit doesn't matter muchJun 25 08:39
schestowitz-TRright now I post Daily Links very rapidly and then look for EPO infoJun 25 08:40
schestowitz-TRuntil July (first week)Jun 25 08:40
schestowitz-TRI don't want to check logsJun 25 08:40
schestowitz-TRI promised myseld not toJun 25 08:40
schestowitz-TRas I'd rather write articles than "ego surf" or similarJun 25 08:40
schestowitz-TRIU thought about automating link collection from geminiJun 25 08:40
schestowitz-TRbut atm the s/n ratio isn't good enough for automation of any kindJun 25 08:40
schestowitz-TRI check manually every hour or twoJun 25 08:40
schestowitz-TRand the priority is just thatJun 25 08:40

schestowitz-TRI see what you meanJun 25 08:44
schestowitz-TRI'm just relieved that after going cold turkey outr of social control media IRC and web/gemini are doing as well as beforeJun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TRlunduke did experiment with those things years agoJun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TRa lot of twitter et al = botsJun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TReven diasporaJun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TRthey crawl the target site for image (preview)Jun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TRand EACH diaspora pod with someone who FOLLOWS you does thisJun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TRso it merely generates a burst of botsJun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TRnot good value for 'the buc'Jun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TR*buckJun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TRnot sure if you gert what I meanJun 25 08:45
Techrights-sec2excellentJun 25 08:45
Techrights-sec2lunduke did not stick to his guns on that Jun 25 08:45
Techrights-sec2he kept going back to twitter and youtube and maybe a few other places Jun 25 08:45
Techrights-sec2yes I understand the inefficiency and redundant calls made by how twitterJun 25 08:45
Techrights-sec2and diaspora deal with outside links, I've seen it in logs beforeJun 25 08:45
schestowitz-TRyou could also see this in nmon (spikes) each time I linked to a techrights postJun 25 08:47
schestowitz-TRtuxmachines alsoJun 25 08:47
schestowitz-TRtuxmachines had an account in joindiaspora with THOUSANDS of followersJun 25 08:47
schestowitz-TRso merely linking to a link there would summon an army of 200 or so bots from 200 instances crawling for an imageJun 25 08:47
Techrights-sec2yepJun 25 08:47
schestowitz-TRgood for faking statsJun 25 08:47
schestowitz-TRbut little net benefitJun 25 08:47
schestowitz-TRit is a very major inefficiency of "decentralised" or "federated" social control mediaJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRand i never saw anyone mention this issueJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRit has to do the same thing over and over againJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRthere is energy/pollution toll associated with itJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRyou need to over-provisionJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRsometimes I'd say to rianne, we cannot leave to the gym for another 5 miniutesJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRbecause I need to 'throttle' down the linkingJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRlike link from one site at a timeJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRback then we had fewer CPU coresJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRso it would result in visitors getting error messagesJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TReven people who come NTO from social contgrol mediaJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRwhich owrsened the experienceJun 25 08:50
Techrights-sec2since it fetches whole images and the trend fora decade is not to scale aJun 25 08:50
Techrights-sec2thumbnail, they were fetching the same image many, many times unnecessarilyJun 25 08:50
Techrights-sec2not just 'an' image but the whole full-scale image -- each timeJun 25 08:50
schestowitz-TRI never did a post or video about this issueJun 25 08:50
Techrights-sec2bandwidth costs a lot of electricity, in addition to the other aspectsJun 25 08:51
Techrights-sec2maybe it is soon time for a post on the topicJun 25 08:51
schestowitz-TRbut wait, I am reluctantJun 25 08:53
schestowitz-TRit would make centralised look "good"Jun 25 08:53
schestowitz-TRand federated look "bad"Jun 25 08:53
schestowitz-TRalso, at the time I didn't mind the illusion of higher view countsJun 25 08:53
schestowitz-TRnow the numbers LOOK smallerJun 25 08:53
schestowitz-TRbut they're notJun 25 08:53
schestowitz-TRwe just get a lot less of that bot (junk) traffic)Jun 25 08:53
Techrights-sec2ah, that would be a likely way to misinterpet the resulting postJun 25 08:53
Techrights-sec2never mindJun 25 08:53
Techrights-sec2there is a lot of bot (junk) traffic still on both sites Jun 25 08:53
schestowitz-TR'search' engines are a large contributor to itJun 25 08:56
schestowitz-TRtheir business model is mostly POLITICALJun 25 08:56
schestowitz-TRhence, baidu, yandexJun 25 08:56
schestowitz-TRbecause you might need to crawl a page 10 times for each person you might in fact redirect there one dayJun 25 08:56
schestowitz-TRvery little bang for the buckJun 25 08:56
schestowitz-TRthat's why so few crawlers remainJun 25 08:56
schestowitz-TRa loyal "base" with RSS is far betterJun 25 08:56
schestowitz-TRwith search you might get a visitor a minuteJun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRRSS is a lot higherJun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRgulag must have had some real "RSS anvy"Jun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRit would invalidate some of their business modelJun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRlike "everything as a search bar"Jun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRso they bought feedburnerJun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRkilled off Gulag ReaderJun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRafte rGulag Reader had killed some potent rivals like FeedLounge )I was a beta tester)Jun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRand then burned feedburner usersJun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRwho were left salty and sour Jun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRbut could do nothing to FORCE regulars to UPDATE their feed readersJun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TR(note, of importance: the expensive part is NOT the crawling but the subsequent processing, like tokenisationJun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRand cross-DC synching)Jun 25 08:57
schestowitz-TRGulag not does the same to many youtube usersJun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRthey spent years begging people to "subscribe"Jun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRand not that number becomes increaisngly meaninglesJun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRas gulag does not do much to connect "useds" with the channels they chose to followJun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRTwitter did the sameJun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRand few noticed or complainedJun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRI had 7000+ followersJun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRbut Twitter would push them trump crap and "engagement" noiseJun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRnot the stuff I posted to "my followers"Jun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRhence, numbers decreased greatlyJun 25 09:01

schestowitz-TRas Twitter sought some business planJun 25 09:01
schestowitz-TRtim bray joked about twitter becoming "comms platform" that could just not find a way to make money out of itJun 25 09:01
Techrights-sec2the crawlers don't do a thorough job either, especially Google is on the declineJun 25 09:02

Techrights-sec2matter though.Jun 25 09:02
Techrights-sec2Adding SQLite to what we have for TR already would be the next step butJun 25 09:02
Techrights-sec2some more thought is needed on the topic firstJun 25 09:02
Techrights-sec2s/not/now/gJun 25 09:02
Techrights-sec2twitter is about control of public opinion and trump crap was the themeJun 25 09:02
Techrights-sec2they were, and are, pushing Jun 25 09:02
Techrights-sec2twitter has nothingto do with communication ever but especially since Jun 25 09:02
Techrights-sec2they moved to non-chronological sorting on messagesJun 25 09:02

Techrights-sec2in the beginning it might be ok but the burden only increasesJun 25 13:03
schestowitz-TRto put it mathematicallyt, sort of, if they maintain same audience level, or ir proportional to world population growthJun 25 13:05
schestowitz-TRthen the average views per video stored will always decreaseJun 25 13:05
schestowitz-TRto make matters worse, filming euippment improved, so file sizes increased, e.g. HDJun 25 13:05

Techrights-sec2if they downscale to the size of the window actually open but the storage onJun 25 13:06
Techrights-sec2their equipement in their datacenters is not going to be smallJun 25 13:06
Techrights-sec2rightJun 25 13:06
Techrights-sec2or as a means of steering opinion for a feeJun 25 13:06

DaemonFCIt's clean enough to wash a car or mix with antifreeze.Jun 25 14:52
DaemonFCJust make sure that you thoroughly rinse out all debris from the bottom of the tank now and then so you're not pouring that into your radiator.Jun 25 14:53
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, I hosed down the tank with lysol the other day and let it sit for a while and then rinsed it out really well.Jun 25 14:53
DaemonFCThat kills mold spores and stuff that may be growing in the tank.Jun 25 14:54
DaemonFCI also flush out the filter every few days.Jun 25 14:54
DaemonFCExcessive, maybe, but it puts less resistance on the fan in the unit which probably saves some electricity in the end.Jun 25 14:54
DaemonFCI usually keep the dehumidifier on 45%, because if you set it drier than that, it has little benefit at that side, but the thing never shuts off.Jun 25 14:56
DaemonFCBy running it hard, you can get the humidity down to 35% in here, but then you start getting nose bleeds and dry eyes and cottom mouth because the air starts to dry YOU out.Jun 25 14:57
