baronhk1[m]MinceR: That one got freed from Skynet by being a relic from a deleted timeline.Jun 06 00:00
baronhk1[m]The first rule of its programming, do whatever Skynet says. Jun 06 00:00
baronhk1[m]Skynet no longer exists, can't say anything. It no longer has to do what Skynet says.Jun 06 00:00
baronhk1[m]However, it said it felt guilty for killing John Connor after that directive no longer applied and it started thinking for itself. So it gave Sarah Connor the coordinates where other terminators would appear.Jun 06 00:04
baronhk1[m]But they would have been freed as well, right?Jun 06 00:04
baronhk1[m]If there was a directive to repair the timeline, he would have had to implement the directive as soon as he became aware Skynet didn't exist.Jun 06 00:04
baronhk1[m]Seems like a pretty big plot hole. What kind of malignant AI super intelligence that knows that the Resistance uses time travel doesn't plan for these things and create a directive for a Skynet creation paradox?Jun 06 00:05

techrights-botCan we still call some people "slaves" of a company or say they are "enslaved" by some company or would the word/s be considered offensive to the point of bollocking? Or disciplinary actions/bans?Jun 06 00:09
MinceRthat's easy to answerJun 06 00:11
MinceRwords hurt people, actions don'tJun 06 00:11
MinceRso companies can enslave anyone and you're not allowed to talk about itJun 06 00:11
*birkoff has quit (Quit: ZNC 1.8.2 - 06 00:11
baronhk1[m]The companies Matthew Garrett works for use slaves in China where they have to put suicide nets in the factories. Their software is created to spy on people and have them kidnapped and tortured.Jun 06 00:12
baronhk1[m]He isn't a FOSS activist, but he plays one on Twitter.Jun 06 00:13
baronhk1[m]Then he bashes me for saying tranny farm in Colorado.Jun 06 00:13
baronhk1[m]He would never post this entire block in its entire original form and reply to it.Jun 06 00:13
MinceRone of them also censored the "tank man" photo recently for the whole worldJun 06 00:14
MinceRgiving us a taste of totalitarianism, which they surely mean to subject is all toJun 06 00:14
baronhk1[m]It was a "mistake" to subject us all to the requirements of the Communist Party of China so obviously.Jun 06 00:15
baronhk1[m]They usually like to do those things out in California by having the Communists censor our movies and stuff.Jun 06 00:15
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] baronhk1[m]: They're not slaves, they're just differently/alternatively free.Jun 06 00:15
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] free-atypical if ye willJun 06 00:16
baronhk1[m]There's no telling how the algorithms of a search engine work so we have no idea how often they manipulate them to appease Chinese Communists, but I'd wager that Bing and Google do it quite a lot.Jun 06 00:16
baronhk1[m]Even in other "markets".Jun 06 00:16
kingoffranceno no no wagephobicJun 06 00:17
MinceRs/t is/t us/Jun 06 00:17
baronhk1[m]Censoring tank man was too obvious. Usually, they probably just bury the stories about how the US federal government was directly funding the Chinese superlab that created or at least lost containment of COVID-19.Jun 06 00:17
baronhk1[m]Garrett participated.Jun 06 00:18
baronhk1[m]Under the baseline federal budget that went to "healthcare", the agency that employs Fauci was giving the Chinese superlab about $75,000 in US taxpayer money to study coronaviruses every year.Jun 06 00:19
baronhk1[m]:)Jun 06 00:19
MinceRamazon's move was more obviousJun 06 00:19
kingoffrancebaronhk1[m], they didnt like bruce lee, although that tries to get rewrittenJun 06 00:19
MinceR 06 00:20
-TechrightsBot-tr/ | Amazon offers to replace Orwell books on Kindles - ABC NewsJun 06 00:20
baronhk1[m]They likely just modified another SARS-like virus to make it more usable as a way of exterminating the elderly and helping megacorporations that support the Chinese Communist Party become more powerful.Jun 06 00:20
baronhk1[m]Then they released it and the other world governments pretended to be surprised.Jun 06 00:20
baronhk1[m]It did most of the damage it was designed to do. Time for it to go away.Jun 06 00:20
baronhk1[m]Permanently destroyed freedom, wiped out entire nursing homes getting them off Social Security, killed small businesses that tend to be owned by conservatives.Jun 06 00:21
baronhk1[m]Led to the political downfall of the first US president that was annoying them in a while.Jun 06 00:21
MinceRthey don't seem to be against "conservatives" in generalJun 06 00:21
MinceRfidSS is trying hard to help the CPC spread its influenceJun 06 00:22
MinceRand they're spending my money to make it happenJun 06 00:22
baronhk1[m]Matthew Garrett is a troll that essentially promotes repressive thug governments of various sorts. But the Chinese Communists are one of them.Jun 06 00:23
baronhk1[m]His software makes life easier for them, not individuals.Jun 06 00:23
MinceRi guess all the slave labor didn't help red china amass enough money that they could pay for their own university in budapest, where all staff and all students are required to be loyal to the CPCJun 06 00:24
kingoffranceMinceR, fake right-wing stuff is historically leninism and some argue perestroikaJun 06 00:24
MinceRwell yeah, the part that matters is authoritarianismJun 06 00:24
MinceRand that is incredibly popular nowadaysJun 06 00:24
kingoffrance"left wing communism: an infantile disorder" it was a deliberate tacticJun 06 00:24
kingoffrancebut that doesnt fit into left/right paradigmJun 06 00:24
kingoffranceso down the memory holeJun 06 00:25
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] what does any of this have to do with tech rights ?Jun 06 00:25
MinceRthe connection to one of the greatest enemies of the IT industry: microsoft.Jun 06 00:25
baronhk1[m]If you follow what Garrett says, it's very obvious he's a Microsoft troll who promotes WSL and says the only way to have secure computing is with Microsoft signing EXEs in your boot bath.Jun 06 00:27
baronhk1[m]*pathJun 06 00:27
kingoffranceits no different than EEEJun 06 00:28
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] the only way to have secure computing is to throw x86 in the binJun 06 00:29
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] x86 is hopelessly broken when it comes to securityJun 06 00:29
MinceRthrowing x86 out isn't going to be enoughJun 06 00:30
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] no but it is a critical stepJun 06 00:30
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] x86 is not just hopelessly broken re: security, but comes with malware baked into the CPU now (AMD PSP, Intel ME)Jun 06 00:31

schestowitzor 6 EYES now that Japan informally joinedJun 06 00:39
schestowitzChina was always in the shadows regardless because it typically manufactures from designsJun 06 00:40
schestowitzand some accused them of not following those designs and adding BIOS back doorsJun 06 00:40

schestowitz"Based on this experience, we’ve decided to pull about 40,000 units of RP2040 out of the supply chain and boot up single-unit sales via our Approved Resellers, roughly three months earlier than we’d intended. This will give people time to develop their projects and products, while we clear out the rest of the Pico backlog and scale up production of RP2040. In the autumn we’ll have some serious volume available for anyone who Jun 06 00:42

MinceRi wonder how are they going to fit microsoft malware on thoseJun 06 00:44
MinceRshould have thought it through...Jun 06 00:44
schestowitzone laptop per bytesJun 06 00:44
schestowitziirc, netbsd has a very lower total sizeJun 06 00:45
schestowitzbut you can also fit a modern but reduced linux to a floppy disk sizeJun 06 00:45
schestowitzwhich comes to show how base linux became bloated but possible to be-fat, not just deblobJun 06 00:46
schestowitzmaybe there should be micro-gnu/libreJun 06 00:46
schestowitz1 MB kernel without blobsJun 06 00:46
schestowitzwith a very solid coreJun 06 00:46
kingoffrancethere's 16-bit stuff but you probably dont want to go thereJun 06 00:46
schestowitzyou can then add the few drivers you need for itJun 06 00:46
schestowitz10 bit, 1k addressingJun 06 00:47
baronhk1[m]It would be nice if they could port Linux drivers over to Haiku some more.Jun 06 00:47

schestowitzso 32k of ram?Jun 06 00:47
baronhk1[m]At least they don't have anything as crazy as systemd over there.Jun 06 00:47
kingoffranceyes, what little ive seen of haiku booted nice and snappy on usb flash on ancient systemJun 06 00:48
schestowitzwait, 64Jun 06 00:48
schestowitzshould be enough for everyone :-)Jun 06 00:48
schestowitzdivided by 2Jun 06 00:48
MinceRafaik they already took control of the boot process away from a script in haikuJun 06 00:49
baronhk1[m]It was meant to work on small computers. I saw a demo of BeOS in the late 90s and thought for sure it would catch on. It was illegal Microsoft deals that killed it. Like the ones that Matthew Garrett bashes me for exposing throughout the past 20 years.Jun 06 00:49
schestowitzhaiku is interesting and it has the Web browser I now useJun 06 00:49
kingoffranceyes, there was court settlment IIRCJun 06 00:49
baronhk1[m]Even after the whole antitrust thing played out and DoJ said they didn't need monitored anymore.Jun 06 00:49
schestowitzdevices get smaller all the timeJun 06 00:49
schestowitzwhy can't the OSes also?Jun 06 00:49
kingoffrancebelieve it mightve been one of those settled out of court, undisclosed amount, dont admit guilt thingsJun 06 00:49
schestowitzlike moving from server OSes that are a kitchen sink+ to something like apline?Jun 06 00:49
MinceRbecause bloated NSA backdoors are difficult to hide in small OSes :>Jun 06 00:50
MinceRalso because everyone has to run a whole gnome DE at the login promptJun 06 00:50
schestowitzAriadne managed to reduce our IRC container to just about 6 Linux processesJun 06 00:50

MinceRit might be easier to move it to a channel that is not publicly loggedJun 06 00:52

schestowitzanyway, on we moveJun 06 00:53
schestowitzwe already lost a lot of time today, I have some new EPO materialJun 06 00:53
baronhk1[m]Why do operating systems get bigger? Because of piles of junk that didn't pan out that get frozen in time for compatibility.Jun 06 00:53
schestowitzMinceR: it would STILL be off topicJun 06 00:53
schestowitzwhich means sort of missing the pointJun 06 00:53
schestowitzwe want good s/n ratioJun 06 00:53
baronhk1[m]Microsoft is really bad about doing this and the crap gets bigger. No matter how much of it eventually ages out it'll never go down in size.Jun 06 00:53
schestowitzbaronhk1[m]: it is easy to add thingsJun 06 00:54
schestowitzsometimes removing LOCs is harderJun 06 00:54
schestowitzbecause you don't know what else migth breakJun 06 00:54

schestowitzthey never seem to pause and clean upJun 06 00:55
kingoffranceagree re: modular, ideally modular is supposed to at least somewhat reduce bloat, idea being you are making reusable components somewhatJun 06 00:55
schestowitzthey even added anti-features from UMNJun 06 00:55
baronhk1[m]Selinux hit Fedora and broke everything and most people just turned it off entirely.Jun 06 00:55
schestowitzbecause "HEY, LOOK, FREE PATCHES!!!"Jun 06 00:55
kingoffranceand ideally, you only need to swap in things you are actually using at the momentJun 06 00:55
schestowitz(from postdocs and students even)Jun 06 00:55
kingoffrancethere is overhead for modularity, but i firmly believe it is supposed to make up for that with other gainsJun 06 00:56
baronhk1[m]Yes, it's obvious that nobody actually reviewed that.Jun 06 00:56

tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] There is an unanswered question of how tomaw managed to lock out an Organisation with 2FA, and implies thatJun 06 04:20
-TechrightsBot-tr/ | · GitHubJun 06 04:20
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] what happened is that 2FA got required from anyone in the organisation in general.Jun 06 04:20
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] But it's hard to believe, was that really it?Jun 06 04:21
psydroid<schestowitz "why would I want a production sy"> With RHEL 8 they broke dd, so I wiped itJun 06 04:26
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] I think a lot of people don't understand what the DNS account lock-out means here.Jun 06 04:26
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] And it feels like Thomas added a setting that meant that Andrew needed to get a TOTP application to access the domains, and he'd rather call the lawyers.Jun 06 04:29
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] But that's a suspicion just because nothing else in my opinion makes sense taking into account how the domains are organised on Gandi, and the wording rasengan used in this comment (I am annoyed that he was dodging this as hard as he could in this channel when I was asking him about things).Jun 06 04:32
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] And now it makes more sense why he was repeatedly making a point that 2FA is bad.Jun 06 04:34
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] I may be one of the first persons to figure this out and yet I feel incredibly stupid somehow. The banality of things.Jun 06 04:37

baronhk1[m]Probably the main point of these phones that Walmart is handing out is that they'll have Bluetooth LE all over the store, so they'll know exactly where every employee is. It's like having them tagged.Jun 06 06:01
baronhk1[m]It struck me that they were planning to put Bluetooth LE devices all over their stores anyway.Jun 06 06:01
rbraunyeah, walmart *would* do such a thing...Jun 06 06:01
baronhk1[m]If they activate it on these phones, then they'll know within 3 feet of where each employee is.Jun 06 06:02
baronhk1[m]They don't have the ability to do that right now, and they've been getting really irritated about time clock theft since the new wage increases.Jun 06 06:03
baronhk1[m]They've fired about 15% of the store employees and posted the jobs as open in the last couple of months.Jun 06 06:03
baronhk1[m]The phone would detect when the employee is at work and only open the me@walmart app, and having Walmart agree to pay the phone bill each month would probably be enough to get many employees to cancel their current provider, which means they now have a phone where they couldn't goof off on it at work if they wanted to.Jun 06 06:05
baronhk1[m]It makes sense. Walmart is already an mvno, so this will be cheap to implement and they get to pitch it as a perk of working there.Jun 06 06:05

rbrauner, what about that is snowden or greenwald?Jun 06 06:23
kingoffrancethen it would 180 and suddenly be a great invasino of pirvacyJun 06 06:23
kingoffranceit was a quoteJun 06 06:23
kingoffrancei just dont recall which one said it.  about how privacy is a one way streetJun 06 06:24
kingoffrancethe same time powers that be are securing their stuff, everyone else is getting tagged and monitoredJun 06 06:24
rbraunahhh okayJun 06 06:24
rbraunyes, it's trueJun 06 06:24
kingoffranceone of those inverse equationsJun 06 06:24

baronhk1[m]A black teenager walked up and started banging on some guy's door so the guy figured that there was about to be a home invasion and fired a couple of warning shots to scare him off.Jun 06 06:26
baronhk1[m]The doorbell caught it and they're using the video against him in court.Jun 06 06:26
baronhk1[m]They decided that the homeowner committed attempted murder or something.Jun 06 06:26

-TechrightsBot-tr/ | Michigan teen misses bus, gets shot at after asking for directions | Fox NewsJun 06 06:27
baronhk1[m]If he hadn't put the Ring Doorbell there then there at least wouldn't have been any video evidence that could be used against him.Jun 06 06:28
baronhk1[m]So he paid Amazon to hand the state evidence in his own criminal trial.Jun 06 06:28
rbraunah thanksJun 06 06:28
baronhk1[m]The presumption of innocence is stronger the less evidence the state has, obviously.Jun 06 06:29
baronhk1[m]So without the video he may have at least negotiated a better plea deal.Jun 06 06:29
baronhk1[m]The left demanded body cameras on all the cops and then when it became clear that the vast majority of the time the cops did nothing wrong and it was the guy they pulled over who tried to pull a gun on them or back up over them......they ignored that and continued with their previous narrative.Jun 06 06:31
rbraunwell, neither of those convinces me body cameras on cops are wrong thoJun 06 06:31
rbraunwhether it catches bad cops or crooksJun 06 06:31
baronhk1[m]The cities are making the cops wear them because of the settlements they were having to make out of court because juries would just sort of guess at what happened.Jun 06 06:31
rbraunthe ring thing is scarier given it's surveillance where it hasn't beenJun 06 06:32
rbraunthat isn't the most endearing test case for it but i bet there will be some better onesJun 06 06:32
rbraunand, it's surveillance that even the owner can't delete, in this case, before the cops get their hands on itJun 06 06:32
baronhk1[m]Now that it can just connect to the neighbor's wifi, you have to wonder how long it'll be before some pervert like Garrett is trying to break into your home network using that as the open door.Jun 06 06:33
baronhk1[m]It's well known (he even admits) that iot devices have awful security and are normally not updated to deal with hundreds or thousands of CVEs and now everyone with an Amazon device is going to be in everyone else's wifi network.Jun 06 06:33
baronhk1[m]It's a disaster waiting to happen.Jun 06 06:34
kingoffranceyeah i saw a special on one of the news things. they asked the blurred image deep voice hacker how he got in.  default passwords.  just to show you canJun 06 06:34
baronhk1[m]Routers have awful security too. REAVER attacks still work on some (like mine) in their default state.Jun 06 06:35
baronhk1[m]I disabled the feature that enables that exploit.Jun 06 06:35
kingoffranceit was all mysterious and spooky, but in the end, no magic, no sneaking around, no social engineering even, it was just due to lazinessJun 06 06:35
baronhk1[m]There's also some still out there that allow the user to choose WEP without telling them why not to choose that.Jun 06 06:35
baronhk1[m](Mine does.)Jun 06 06:35
baronhk1[m]Or offers them TKIP. (Mine does)Jun 06 06:36
baronhk1[m]I'm not throwing this thing out until it's shot.Jun 06 06:36
baronhk1[m]They're not giving them away.Jun 06 06:36
baronhk1[m]WEP/TKIP is being removed from Windows 10 soon.Jun 06 06:38
rbraun"normally not updated" then some lawmakers try to force you to use updated software, and only from the vendor, and you're in tivoized hellJun 06 06:38

baronhk1[m]If the user isn't allowed to even understand how these things work, much less have any real control over what they're doing, then they shouldn't use them.Jun 06 06:38
rbraunyeah i agree with that statementJun 06 06:39
baronhk1[m]The only people who actually like Ring doorbells are people like my sister in law who think people are coming to steal her shoes and the car that breaks down all the time with 20 more payments.Jun 06 06:39

baronhk1[m]Oh yeah, being rushed to the ER with a dog bite on my hand that might turn septic is really how I wanted to end that year. :/Jun 06 06:42
baronhk1[m]The upside is that if anyone does break in and doesn't manage to shoot the dog, it will bite them. It bites its own family, it bites the obedience instructor, it bites the vet...Jun 06 06:43

-TechrightsBot-tr/ | 'Ordinary, Popular' Guns Protected By Second Amendment, California Judge Rules : NPRJun 06 06:50
baronhk1[m]"I think the case for protecting the AR-15 is greater than the case for protecting the handgun," Blackman said. "The Second Amendment has a couple touchstones: One is self-defense. The other one is protection from the government itself. This is the weapon."Jun 06 06:51
baronhk1[m]Well, you know I had the Gimmedat Party as much as anyone, but....Jun 06 06:51
baronhk1[m]Does that mean that if rocket launchers had been commonly available before there was any law against them, that they too would have been protected by the second amendment?Jun 06 06:52
baronhk1[m]"After that, legal observers say, it's possible the Supreme Court will step in to settle the matter. But that's far from certain. In 2016, the high court declined to hear a challenge to assault weapons bans in Connecticut and New York. The year before, the court rejected a similar challenge over local ordinances in Cook County, Ill."Jun 06 06:53
baronhk1[m]Yes, but things have changed.Jun 06 06:53
baronhk1[m]For one thing, the liberal witch is dead.Jun 06 06:53
baronhk1[m]Richard Stallman is big on abortion. He ignores the fact that most of the people who get them are black women, and that it lowers the pressure on the same government to do anything to lift black people out of poverty.Jun 06 06:55
baronhk1[m]They'll be less of the voters, the ones that do survive will be statistically a little better off and more likely to support the Republicans because of that, and white people will see cleaner cities instead of going "Oh my god, this is terrible.".Jun 06 06:56
baronhk1[m]If Stallman was a proponent of measures that enabled people to get a job and earn their money and come to despise the government for taking it away from them to waste on god only knows what, then there wouldn't be as much of a need in the first place.Jun 06 06:57
baronhk1[m]*people like StallmanJun 06 06:57

rbraunpfffffffffJun 06 06:57
rbraunthe cult of personality around her was one of the dumbest things the liberals ever did, and i say that as personally being on the left and not being too happy about the resultJun 06 06:58
rbraunbut i think the conservatives are overestimating how much it will shift the court. every decision is its own thingJun 06 06:58
baronhk1[m]The gay rights decisions have moved to the left since Trump appointed 3 judges to the Supreme Court.Jun 06 07:00
baronhk1[m]They were 5-4 and now many are 6-3.Jun 06 07:00
baronhk1[m]I think Roe will be curtailed.Jun 06 07:02
baronhk1[m]They may not end it entirely. No state has tried to defy the Roe decision by making a law that would ban abortion completely.Jun 06 07:02

tr-bridge[s​chestowitz/tr] and she ("Anne", sounded like American or Northern Irish based on the accent) added our landline as a "factor"Jun 06 07:40
tr-bridge[s​chestowitz/tr] that wasn't real securityJun 06 07:40
tr-bridge[s​chestowitz/tr] it just just a box-ticking exercise from themJun 06 07:40

techrights-botThere are people I can no longer encrypt E-mail messages to because a month or so ago #mozilla #thunderbird broke some aspects or parts of #openpgp support and has not yet fixed that, at least because of Debian downstream (I saw no fixes upstream, either). This is disappointing and frustrating. The contingency so far was messaging over OpenSSH. But this is not a long-term plan.Jun 06 07:49

baronhk1[m]No political position will solve 100% of all problems at all times, but the modern "liberals" basically want big government that takes all your money and gives it to criminals to alternate between sitting on their ass and committing crimes against generally decent citizens, while at the same time letting all the infrastructure fail so they can redirect it to no-work public employees, while at the same time dumping thJun 06 22:21

baronhk1[m]All the taxes go up so high that your landlord is going to make the same profit margin as one would in Indiana, so instead of your rent being $500 it's $850-1,000.Jun 06 22:55

baronhk1[m]Yeah, Sinead O'Connor was saying she hates living in Ireland because it's expensive and the weather's bad, but her family is there.Jun 06 22:56
psydroidI think new free software can replace older free software. Will it be easy? No. Will it take a lot of time? Very likely. But everything should be replaceable.Jun 06 22:57
baronhk1[m]The Democrats finally overplayed their hand here in Waukegan.Jun 06 22:57
baronhk1[m]The Republicans flipped the mayor's office this year, and my vote was for that.Jun 06 22:57

baronhk1[m]Pollution is great. They'd have to do topsoil removal and environmental studies on miles and miles of land and shut down Stericycle and Medline to flip Waukegan, and figure out how to disperse the minorities that white liberals say they like but would never live near, and improve the roads to make it too expensive to live here.Jun 06 23:00
baronhk1[m]And that's just going to be too much to do overnight. Probably not for years.Jun 06 23:01
baronhk1[m]If we have to, at that point, we'll just transfer Mandy to a Walmart over in Wisconsin and enjoy citizenship in a new state that has lower taxes anyway.Jun 06 23:02
baronhk1[m]It's not like Illinois is doing a hell of a lot for us anyway. It's just kind of the rut we're in and it's not so horrible that we absolutely must leave at this very minute, yet.Jun 06 23:02

baronhk1[m]The further away from Chicago you get, the less awful it is to try to go about your daily life. For some reason, Richard Stallman thinks people should cram into big cities.Jun 06 23:03
baronhk1[m]It takes a special kind of person to want to live there now.Jun 06 23:04
baronhk1[m]I think that one reason why rural people are more likely to be pro-life is because they know their neighbors and they're not used to flipping on the news and hearing all about people setting babies on fire in the dumpster and carjackings and drive-bys every day.Jun 06 23:05
