schestowitz-TR2maybe the way I use ffmpeg is not just sub-optimal but badOct 25 05:08
schestowitz-TR2I think it slips it without re-encodingfOct 25 05:08
schestowitz-TR2the fast and distry wayOct 25 05:08
schestowitz-TR2but it never caused problems at my endOct 25 05:08
techrights-sec[2]probablyOct 25 05:08

techrights-sec[2]By the way, Chromium-based web browsers block access to 25 07:28
techrights-sec[2]with no means of allowing the self-signed certificate through.  Oct 25 07:28
techrights-sec[2]Given what Baker is doing to Mozilla it is a matter of time before FirefoxOct 25 07:28
techrights-sec[2]also fully blocks self-signed certificates.  From what I recall, Let's EncryptOct 25 07:28
techrights-sec[2]never got recognition as a Certificate Authority and are still using a dualOct 25 07:28
techrights-sec[2]CA as a temporary work-around which seems to have become kind of permanent.Oct 25 07:28

schestowitz-TR2oh, well doneOct 25 08:11
schestowitz-TR2the changes to cron persistent across startups/rebootsOct 25 08:11
schestowitz-TR2ipfs does not yet start automatically though, but that's OK Oct 25 08:11
schestowitz-TR2I think everything is back nowOct 25 08:11
schestowitz-TR2and the system updates apply following reboots, which were planned weeks agoOct 25 08:11
techrights-sec[2]excellentOct 25 08:12
techrights-sec[2]yes, that was a benefit and overdueOct 25 08:12
schestowitz-TR2sorry I was slow to respond, just slept, got back, many terminals were 'dead'Oct 25 08:17
schestowitz-TR2regarding https, TR is never advertised with that protocolOct 25 08:17
schestowitz-TR2some browsers try to be 'clever', even without extensionsOct 25 08:17
techrights-sec[2]Chromium is not just 'some', it is like 85+ % of the market.Oct 25 08:22
schestowitz-TR2iirc, finfish from gemma group *german) is still around under some other nameOct 25 08:24
schestowitz-TR2regarding, chrom* if given a http:// domain or addressOct 25 08:24
-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-Could not resolve host: domain; Unknown error ( status 0 @ http:// domain )Oct 25 08:24
schestowitz-TR2I hope it does not try to rewrite itOct 25 08:24
schestowitz-TR2I heard tor browser used to do thatOct 25 08:24
schestowitz-TR2maybe also librewolf by defaultOct 25 08:24
schestowitz-TR2*finfisherOct 25 08:24
techrights-sec[2]ackOct 25 08:47
schestowitz-TR2I will open email tonightOct 25 08:49
schestowitz-TR2latest thunderbird made it a lto faster to openOct 25 08:49
schestowitz-TR2like a big issued 6-7 years after the problem startedOct 25 08:49
schestowitz-TR2and that gives temptation to break workflow againOct 25 08:49
schestowitz-TR2by letting mail get in thereOct 25 08:49
schestowitz-TR2better done in bulkOct 25 08:49
schestowitz-TR2esp. when some mail is not pleasantOct 25 08:49
schestowitz-TR2e.g. copyright trollOct 25 08:49
schestowitz-TR2re mood-swinging etc, a mechanical mindset/thinking (like working in garden, following routine) can helpOct 25 08:54
schestowitz-TR2but that very much depends on the root causes, e.g. chamical or outside factorOct 25 08:54
schestowitz-TR2re covid-19, tonight or this afternoon we'll have more figures of mortalityOct 25 08:54
schestowitz-TR2i've looked forward to these for days already as they can help validate a hypothesisOct 25 08:54
schestowitz-TR2Prince Sunak thinks money can solve everything, like carpenters with their nails and glueOct 25 08:54
schestowitz-TR2I joked to rianne that all food would be just one penny because she found a large milk for that priceOct 25 08:54
schestowitz-TR2for a moment she though I was seriousOct 25 08:54
schestowitz-TR2Sunak is the one behind "eat out, help out" in summer 2020 (the spread of covid-19 was curbed)Oct 25 08:54
techrights-sec[2]Sunak's appointment is not beneficialOct 25 08:58
schestowitz-TR2my friend destroyed his heart with excessive or too hard exerciseOct 25 08:59
schestowitz-TR2he broke some rowing record and did not know it was ruining his main arteriesOct 25 08:59
schestowitz-TR2until this past FebruaryOct 25 08:59
schestowitz-TR2when he experienced shock like never before (from the news, not any bodily event)Oct 25 08:59
schestowitz-TR2so what he thought made him younger and would elongate his life did the oppositeOct 25 09:00
schestowitz-TR2same with my dad and his diving (he only realised when it was too late)Oct 25 09:00
schestowitz-TR2there is ample literature on how athletes don't like longOct 25 09:00
techrights-sec[2]TragicOct 25 09:00
schestowitz-TR2and that depends on their discpline esp. intensity they subject themselves to Oct 25 09:00
schestowitz-TR2my philosophhy is, exercise but as less as it is enjoyableOct 25 09:00
schestowitz-TR2*as longOct 25 09:00
schestowitz-TR2(not so private:)Oct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2I have the following routinesOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2stair climbing, very fast, sets of 5 floorsOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2pushups/situps/lunges etc. (floor)Oct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2computer room: shotput ball various things, inc. squats and fast-boxOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2no equipment, but after hiatus in lockdowns (2020, 2021) each time I returned to the gymOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2I could handle the machines OKOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2so loss of body mass or muscle erosion (like, from illness) is the main riskOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2I find walking and jogging routes around the stadium/academyOct 25 09:06
techrights-sec[2]planes are just nasty by every metricOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2and a shop to make it worth the journeyOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2i keep hearing of unhealth people or people whose relatives are not healthy Oct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2(rubenerd,'s ash, some people I know in person)Oct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2which can mandate dangerous mingling with covidiotsOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2or boarding planes where isolation is infeasibleOct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2sans the "sanitation theatre"Oct 25 09:06
schestowitz-TR2"leg room" is never an issue until you board a plane, where they already (iirc) patentOct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2the stuffing of passengers in standing position to save spaceOct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2not even military planes do thisOct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2"excuse me, you two people in the middle and aisle, I have to go pee, do you mind waking up and walk to the  Oct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2aisle for me, once when I leave and then again when I get back? That would be greeeeeatttttt"Oct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2[holds breath for 5 mins and walks away from "scene of the crime"]Oct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2they call this "lifestyle", "seeing the world", and boast about "air miles"Oct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2like debt (not debit) cards that are made 95% of plastic but say "Gold" or "Platinum" on them Oct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2to stroke the egos of the likes of Zemlin, who barely knows how to restart a service let aloneOct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2deliver a presentation from his Mac PC without it getting jammedOct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2people who look down on those who don't participate in these 'rituals' aren't worthy of enagementOct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2let them find their other career-climbing losers to waste their lives with  Oct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2apropos, social control media is a driver of this toxic cultureOct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2and takes it out of the classroom and the mall, shoving it into the home 24/7Oct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2"the phone in the socket that never stops beeping"Oct 25 09:13
techrights-sec[2]yepOct 25 09:13
techrights-sec[2]one improvement has been the cessation of smoking on the flights;Oct 25 09:13
techrights-sec[2]the whole plane was otherwise filled with smoke such that the ceiling wasOct 25 09:13
techrights-sec[2]hardly visisbleOct 25 09:13
schestowitz-TR2smoke in plane is a safety hazardOct 25 09:19
schestowitz-TR2if someone cannot avoid a fag for 2-10 hours of flight, one is a junkieOct 25 09:19
schestowitz-TR2and junkies don't belong on planesOct 25 09:19
schestowitz-TR2we sat next to one for 5 hours, it was truly horrible and I wrote about itOct 25 09:19
schestowitz-TR2btw, pay in academic has sunk and the atmosphere at the job became very badOct 25 09:19
schestowitz-TR2at one postdoc position I worked 10 hours a week and was paid just enough for bills and barely foodOct 25 09:19
schestowitz-TR2so they're eliminating jobs that don't resemlbe wage slavery, by lowing the pay and also making the jobOct 25 09:19
schestowitz-TR2less pleasantOct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2they've taken disgnity out of teaching jobs; in hungary there was a 80,000-strong protest by teachersOct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2Orban hates scholars and academiaOct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2those "f*ckers" don't vote for him, so "f*ck them!"Oct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2that protest was this week, I posted a link in irc about it minutes agoOct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2it's not just us/gop issueOct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2when I was intervewed her for postdoc job (last time, cirica 2012) one person was my phd mentorOct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2and the other was some "business development" BS person. she knew NOTHING about scienceOct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2it was just some useless "business" (so-called) personOct 25 09:20
schestowitz-TR2like a university needs to juistify its existence now by making money!Oct 25 09:20
techrights-sec[2]back then everyone who smoked more or less chain smoked for the duration of theOct 25 09:21
techrights-sec[2]flightOct 25 09:21
techrights-sec[2]yes academic pay is below minimum wage at least in the US and there the minimumOct 25 09:21
techrights-sec[2]is not even remotely livableOct 25 09:21
techrights-sec[2]then there are the terrible work conditions and irrelevant make-work tasksOct 25 09:21
techrights-sec[2]thrown on top of the real tasksOct 25 09:21
techrights-sec[2]you're lukcy these days if the job is only 'less pleasant' most workplacesOct 25 09:21
techrights-sec[2]aim to have a downright unpleasant and nasty environment.Oct 25 09:21
techrights-sec[2]3Oct 25 09:21
*psydruid (~psydruid@jevhxkzmtrbww.irc) has joined #boycottnovellOct 25 09:22
techrights-sec[2]yes you mentioned.  they ruin everything like a business now: Oct 25 09:22
techrights-sec[2]into the ground and ask for a bailoutOct 25 09:22
schestowitz-TR2that is an excellent analogy actuallyOct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2similar to ones I tell my parents about Oct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2I keep reminding them my sinblings accomplish nothingOct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2they waste their lives making a bunch of sociopaths richerOct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2regarding dotcom, put aside ".com" and say tech or tech-fascismOct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2aside from those milking off the taxpayers' teat, like Microsoft,Oct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2many companies perish atmOct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2they never had a viable plan, just "many users"Oct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2Netflix, Spotify (layoffs)Oct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2Twitter "overstaffed" (no shit! Running a pile ofm JS shit takes that many staff???)Oct 25 09:28
schestowitz-TR2thewy don't even do any real moderation or assess appeal; they overturn nothing, just like gulagOct 25 09:29
schestowitz-TR2and in youtube they strip sound or  remove stuff autonmously (real sorry! not out fault!!! bad,, bad HEY HI)Oct 25 09:29
schestowitz-TR2(many "tech" companies, even large ones, don't even have their own infra to look after, they're overchargedOct 25 09:29
schestowitz-TR2by bezos or gulag or -- for idiots -- a clusterfuck full of layoffs called "azure" -- whatever that is)Oct 25 09:29
techrights-sec[2]thus the "underpants gnomes" memeOct 25 09:30
techrights-sec[2]in youtube, people have gotten copyright strikes for playing their ownOct 25 09:30
techrights-sec[2]compositions as well as for playing classical pieces like Bach, Beethoven, etcOct 25 09:30
techrights-sec[2]Most "tech" companies don't produce anything and aim for a buyout / IPOOct 25 09:30
schestowitz-TR2how to run youtube channel in "modern" GoogleTube:Oct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR21) don't have any music, just speechOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR22) never curse, no matter the contextOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR23) don't touch certain subjects; if you do, make 25% of the video all about "YouTube Guidelines" to waste viewersOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2' time and pray your foes won't twist your words out of contextOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR24) don't expect money, even if your audience grows (reminder: spamnil 9 views in 9 days)Oct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR25) don't buy any equipment like lighting ane expensive camera/microphone gear; those WILL NOT pay for themselvesOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2had long chat about related staff (kitchen talk)Oct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2this afternoon we might go check the nearby gym Oct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2to see how crowded it is at off-peak timesOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2for next year, assuming we resumeOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2not the same gym as before Oct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2iirc, offpeak membership is about 22.5 a monthOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2maybe less for a pairOct 25 09:45
schestowitz-TR2it's where the water polo team is training, two large poolsOct 25 09:45
techrights-sec[2]ackOct 25 09:47
techrights-sec[2]more Mastodon clients for the Fediverse are now javascript-only, thatOct 25 10:46
techrights-sec[2]sucks even more than beforeOct 25 10:46
techrights-sec[2]I think I'll just delete the last of the bookmarks over thatOct 25 10:46
techrights-sec[2]to the various instances.  So much for openness and inclusivity.    Oct 25 10:46
techrights-sec[2]They suck.Oct 25 10:46
schestowitz-TR2you understimate the "sucness"Oct 25 10:47
schestowitz-TR2the instance I moved tuxmachines toOct 25 10:47
schestowitz-TR2not only wants JSOct 25 10:47
schestowitz-TR2it also rejects many "modern" browsersOct 25 10:47
schestowitz-TR2or does not render correctlyOct 25 10:47
schestowitz-TR2but I spend no time thereOct 25 10:47
techrights-sec[2]I've been checking every other week from a few bookmarks, but no longer.Oct 25 10:49
techrights-sec[2]There were *very* few links posted there anyway though sometimes independentOct 25 10:49
techrights-sec[2]searching could follow clues given in the comments to find stuff.  Either wayOct 25 10:49
techrights-sec[2]though it was very, very low yield.  Oct 25 10:49
schestowitz-TR2everything feels low yield compared to a decade agoOct 25 10:51
schestowitz-TR2sometimes I check the 12 or so static pages I have in a list for weekendsOct 25 10:51
schestowitz-TR210 minutes spent for maybe 3 linksOct 25 10:51
schestowitz-TR2rss feeds are full of shit but fast to navigateOct 25 10:51
schestowitz-TR2gulag noise is mostly stuff I already have direct feeds forOct 25 10:51
schestowitz-TR2and not there is a level of indirection/spying in URLsOct 25 10:51
schestowitz-TR2so I stopped refreshing thatOct 25 10:51
techrights-sec[2]The way things are going with the browsers as VMs we should not have the worldOct 25 10:54
techrights-sec[2]running Firefox or Chromium but simple Qemu or VirtualBoxOct 25 10:54
techrights-sec[2]Compare to a decade ago, journalism has been abandoned and even back then itOct 25 10:54
techrights-sec[2]was kind of thin compared to the turn of the century.  Oct 25 10:54
techrights-sec[2]RSS is 100s of times faster to navigate than regular web access but still Oct 25 10:54
techrights-sec[2]very very slow and time consuming to find anything worth quoting. Oct 25 10:54
schestowitz-TR2i have just been to the gym, checked the whole place upside down, in and outOct 25 10:54
schestowitz-TR2it's not badOct 25 10:54
schestowitz-TR2at one point he suggested I "download the apo" for more infoOct 25 10:54
schestowitz-TR2I didn't say anything to thatOct 25 10:54
techrights-sec[2]Which are the key resources you would want to use there?  If I understand Oct 25 10:55
techrights-sec[2]correctly you are big enough for waterpolo but that is probably too much Oct 25 10:55
techrights-sec[2]lung exhaust all around.  Oct 25 10:55
schestowitz-TR2I could probably do the goalkeeping as I did that since a little kid till 20 (in soccer though)Oct 25 10:57
schestowitz-TR2but I checked it not for the pools but for gym, showers etc.Oct 25 10:57
schestowitz-TR2you have reminded me I need to check for replies, if any, in mastodonOct 25 10:57
schestowitz-TR2that always felt like a choreOct 25 10:57
schestowitz-TR2just spent 5-10 mins checking commentsOct 25 11:03
schestowitz-TR2it was not time well spentOct 25 11:03
schestowitz-TR2and thought me not much newOct 25 11:03
schestowitz-TR2mostyl a lot of scrollingOct 25 11:03
schestowitz-TR2irc is a lot more effective than these GUIsOct 25 11:03
*DaemonFC has quit (Quit: Leaving)Oct 25 11:13
schestowitz-TR2arbitrary thought: in the early 2000s I wrote articles differentlyOct 25 11:20
schestowitz-TR2those were articles based on other articlesOct 25 11:20
schestowitz-TR2because journalism existedOct 25 11:20
schestowitz-TR2in my text file I'd add my references with excerpts from themOct 25 11:20
schestowitz-TR2not it is difficultOct 25 11:20
schestowitz-TR2as even if there is coverage of some issue, usually there is only one source for itOct 25 11:20
schestowitz-TR2rianne told me this morning about sites she noticed were dying, inc. techrepublic (spam)Oct 25 11:20

schestowitz-TR2it's not a rhetorical questiobOct 25 15:35
schestowitz-TR2it is partly the outcome of software being managed by suits rather then geeks like openbsdOct 25 15:35

schestowitz-TR2being NOT techical but merely exploiting technical people (to get rich)Oct 25 15:36
techrights-sec[2]Part of the reason they can't do that is because M$ has sold people software  Oct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]using the Appeal To Novelty (argumentum ad novitatem) that the drones in Oct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]purchasing and the suits in the C-suite evaluate software based on veryOct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]few other critera other than version number.  Recall in the NT vs Netware daysOct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]they jump the versions up to have a higher number than the competition.  ThenOct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]renamed it to "2000"Oct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]And part of that comes down to few to none of todays institutions having anOct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]actual IT department where they /support/ the mission critical teams in findingOct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]easier, more efficient tools and methods.  Instead they have all become Oct 25 15:41

techrights-sec[2]"newer is not better; different is not better; only better is better;"Oct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]OpenBSD doesn't support any old versions beyond n-1 because they have positionedOct 25 15:41

techrights-sec[2]be able to drop old cruft.  Ensuring "backwards compatibility" too longOct 25 15:41
techrights-sec[2]ensures that some cruft never goes away.  That's why so many remote exploitsOct 25 15:41
