activelowa thought crossed my mind, concerning GPL2 infringements and exactly who could take legal action and whose freedoms are protected thenJul 06 04:08
activelowif an authore published software with GPL applied which then was infringed by someone the author can take legal action, such as to enforce compensation for re-licensingJul 06 04:09
activelowquestion is if any other user of that software who is *not* the author could enforce GPL copyleft thenJul 06 04:10
activelowi think, not sure, any such user who is not the author can benefit from what was published with GPL, yet only authors can effectively enforce copyleft or compensation in case of an infringementJul 06 04:33

activelow^ so, when fsf insisted copyright was transferred with GCC contributions only fsf could enforce copyleft or compensation against whoever might infringed GPLJul 06 04:34
*pandakekok9 (~job@user/job) has joined #techrightsJul 06 04:35
activelowwhich could be even more problematic than several different entities retaining their copyright when contributing to GCC, since then multiple business entities had to be bribed to tolerate GPL infringement, instead of fsf onlyJul 06 04:38
activelowanyway, from a technical perspective, the fsf did not prevent harm to GCC with big vendors bloating it for their interests, which has severe practical consequences already:Jul 06 04:59
activelow- type of vendor lock-in by c++Jul 06 04:59
Ariadnei think ending copyright assignment is good, actually.Jul 06 04:59
AriadneGCC will be forced to remain under GPL, this way.Jul 06 05:00
activelow- lock-in to gcc itself, it isn't easily replaced by PCC for example anymore, and PCC had not received the attention it deserved by "big foss" corporationsJul 06 05:00
AriadneIBM or Microsoft or whoever, cannot take over the FSF board and draft a new GPLv4 and fuck us overJul 06 05:00
activelowi think GCC is fucked alreadyJul 06 05:00

kingoffrancewell i guess the interesting thing is i think there are other people who agree with this -- just they say thats "fsf quality code" or "open source" at work etc. instead of "big vendors".  im not defending that, just how some ppl spin itJul 06 05:08
kingoffrancefsf will take blame anyhowJul 06 05:09
kingoffrancei saw lots of "open source" comments like this on freenode, which didnt distinguish free software of course, but made me wonder why they were there etc.Jul 06 05:10
kingoffranceis clang any easier to "bootstrap" ?Jul 06 05:11
Ariadneclang is a messJul 06 05:11
drazak/fnit's not as if products from big vendors don't suckJul 06 05:11
kingoffrancesome of the ppl i have seen who do care are those who want "seedability"Jul 06 05:12
kingoffrancei.e. to keep distro buildable with few external dependencies, at least to get the ball rollingJul 06 05:12
Ariadnegcc in three-pass compile mode proves that gcc is reproducibleJul 06 05:12
Ariadnei have to give RMS credit there, his insistence on three-pass mode being default was ahead of its timeJul 06 05:13
kingoffranceyes, i should distinguish "small dependencies" from "reproducability" maybeJul 06 05:13
activelowi would trace the root cause of evil back to c++ -> Big Telco (Stroustrup, Bell Labs AT&T ...)Jul 06 05:13
Ariadnebut, gcc is really buggy these daysJul 06 05:13
activelowand some code paths do remain for non-c++ system deployments (GNU, gnome, vala)Jul 06 05:14
Ariadnei do not look forward to gcc 11 upgrade at allJul 06 05:14
activelowi am planning to drop cxx entirely, and dig into PCC for example, not sure yet. could be this is beyond my abilities and competenceJul 06 05:15
*CrystalMath has quit (Quit: Leaving)Jul 06 05:16
activelowtechnical problems are: lack of backported aarch64 support to pcc for example; widget toolkits depending on cxx (qt in particular); linux kernel dependencies against gcc extensions (not sure how severe these are)Jul 06 05:17
kingoffrancei dunno, i dont keep up with these tings. i remember talk of pcc a long time ago for bsds, now it looks like all have clang (fbsd 10, net 6 in base but not built by default, open switched for i386 and x86_64 in 2017)Jul 06 05:18
activelowi do have a toolchain created with gentoo crossev already, and a bootable system which has removed c++ entirely and contains all required gentoo toolingJul 06 05:18
activelowllvm/clang isn't a viable alternative either imo: c++Jul 06 05:18
kingoffranceyeah, thats what i thought Jul 06 05:18
activelowthen, gentoo tooling (which is crucial imo), too vendor locked-in gcc itself; wouldn't want to miss crossdevJul 06 05:20

schestowitzregarding GCC, I'm no expert, just an occasional user, but it seems rather inelegant when compilers get so big because hardware 'extensions' need some code thrown at the compilerJul 06 06:04

gustafso there's a certain amount of red queens race just keeping up with new standardsJul 06 06:16
kingoffrance"well the obvious way around that is to target a VM" sure but doesnt this just move complexity to a new place?Jul 06 06:33
kingoffrancemay still be worth it, but im not sure "size" doesnt just get shiftedJul 06 06:34
schestowitzdoesn't java do that?Jul 06 06:34
activelowkingoffrance: "VM" isn't specific. it is either JIT compilation or AOT, in principle.Jul 06 06:35
activelowsome language constructs (java reflection mechanism, dynamic typing), i think, imply some JIT compilation - no expert with thisJul 06 06:42
activelowsome other language constructs (exceptions, garbage collection) require some type of macro expansion and code generationJul 06 06:44
activelowi think Vala (gnome project) is/was one of the most interesting languages, because it utilises C language as intermediate and AOT compiles, and offeres a rich set of featuresJul 06 06:45

activelowcannot catch up with "big foss" anymore anyway, nor big telco, nor am i willing toJul 06 06:56

lockeanarchistthat's the sad realityJul 06 06:56

lockeanarchistNot a surprise MIT/Apache is so popular now.  GPL is like a sentence that any big company won't touch your code. I see many projects that are pretty ahead of the competition in their space and nobody paid by these companies would touch its code.Jul 06 07:01

activelowand this is where gnu and fsf belong, into universities, instead of some big corporations and their short sighted interests to generate cash flow for their shareholdersJul 06 07:08
activelowthe reason gnu and fsf will fail with their gcc is this: it may not be appropriate for university lecture anymore, correct me if i am in error with this judgementJul 06 07:09
kingoffrance" instead of some big corporations and their short sighted interests to generate cash flow for their shareholders"  is that not related to "the schedule wouldn't allow to lecture the basics to students anymore"Jul 06 07:10

kingoffrancewell i think that is intentional -- its not considered important that most people know the details etc.Jul 06 07:13
activelowthe horror is even worse in the realm of telco engineering, of which the typical foss is only a minor fraction of the concerns involvedJul 06 07:13
leahschestowitz: i'm sorry sorry, i'll have savegnu online asapJul 06 07:13
leahi've been tying up loose ends. there are certain things i needed to take care of first. i've had to get some affairs in order. i expect this campaign to end up being hugeJul 06 07:14
leahif it works the way i hope, it'll end up taking up all my timeJul 06 07:14 mentality is: someone has to do itJul 06 07:14
activelowit is no coincidence gnu and fsf hadn't realized the severity around Xilinx and hardware development (100% proprietary to my knowledge), since they lost their connection with Universities and relevant lectures there entirelyJul 06 07:15
lockeanarchistone that did many travels and spread the word was.. RMSJul 06 07:16
leahthing is, the essence of my ideas are simple, so i'm actually not worried. what matters is how i put them across, more than details. my idea is simple. we discussed it here the other dayJul 06 07:17
lockeanarchistI like RMS but I think the FSF/GNU image became too centralized on RMS. Now people canceled RMSJul 06 07:18
leahthe details are whatever happens if the idea is attempted. that's something that will evolve. such is the nature of... software development. otherwise the concept of paying devs and encouraging way more donations to come in as a result, well that's not hard to wrap your head around. then fsf can start directing real resources towards tackling real problems, all under copyleft,Jul 06 07:19
leahcombatting the current trends of permissive licensing... there are many unexpected things that will happen that i can't predict. all i can say is: if implemented correctly and successful, i think lots of people will be happier with more/better free softwareJul 06 07:19
leahinstead of going to work for google, and probably making the world worse, you go work for fsf, and make free software better for everyoneJul 06 07:20
lockeanarchistYeah, I agreeJul 06 07:20
leahfsf took in 3million during 2019 and had half a million surplusJul 06 07:21
lockeanarchistI think that FSF needs to catch this opportunity and recruit devsJul 06 07:21
lockeanarchistfree-rms was sucessfulJul 06 07:21
leahif people see that fsf is doing actual software development, i reckon we can get that up to 6millionJul 06 07:21
leahthat's an extra 3mil. that pays 30 full-time devs 100k salaries. well, 25Jul 06 07:22
leahthat's doableJul 06 07:22
leahbut most projects don't require full time workJul 06 07:22
leahthese people will be put to the paces, working on multiple projects. or you will have lots of part time devsJul 06 07:22
leahi see this being successful. and if it is, in 5 years from now... good things will have happenedJul 06 07:23
leahwell i want to convince the fsf of this, and for them to put me in charge of getting it up and running... or someone else who agrees with my ideasJul 06 07:24
leahi need to show that this idea can be popular though. hence the siteJul 06 07:24
lockeanarchistrms support letter had many support from china and russia, imagine what fsf could do to advance free software in china. I don't agree with chinese government, but we see that many chinese like the free software philosophyJul 06 07:24
activelowfree software is one aspect, of: freedom of scienceJul 06 07:26
leahlockeanarchist: and yes free-rms is a perfect example of how successful such an organised movement can beJul 06 07:26
lockeanarchistif you look now in github, chinese devs are much more likely to license their code in GPLJul 06 07:27
leahi mean imo fsf/gnu is dead in 5-10 years unless bold actions are taken now, and the work is put in now, to bring things in orderJul 06 07:27
leahbecause otherwise i think if fsf doesn't take control, all these projects will continue to splinter and move awayJul 06 07:28 must remain intact. that's the goal hereJul 06 07:28
lockeanarchistleah: that gnu assembly something is still going onJul 06 07:28
lockeanarchist?Jul 06 07:28
leahyes, absolutelyJul 06 07:28

leahright now it's an agreement called the "social contract" and sort of an informal arrangement, but powerful moves have already taken placeJul 06 07:29

activelowit was the same with "big telco" and privatisation there, what was formerly associated with univerisities got hijacked by commerce and shareholder interestsJul 06 07:45

Microsoft received some payback when his government recently passed a new law on the “autonomy of the universities”.

DaemonFC"Foreign workers, brought in on J-1 work-and-study visas, typically filled many such summer jobs. But President Donald Trump suspended those visas as a coronavirus precaution, and the number of U.S.-issued J-1 visas tumbled 69% in the fiscal 2020 year — to 108,510, from 353,279 the year before.Jul 06 21:21
DaemonFCIn past years, for example, foreigners visiting the U.S. on visas took filled 180 summer jobs at Big Kahuna’s water park in Destin, Florida. Last year, there were just three. This year, eight. Desperate to attract local teens, Big Kahuna’s, which is owned by Boomers Parks, is now paying $12 an hour, up from less than $10 an hour in past years."Jul 06 21:21

DaemonFCI liked how the media connected Trump to a $2 an hour wage increase (by stoking racism and anti-immigrant sentiment) when the state of Illinois just passed a law that gave most people working jobs like that $5.Jul 06 21:34
DaemonFCLike, you know, they have to pay that to anyone who gets the job 06 21:34
DaemonFCAnd they have the money. Even theme parks. I mean, they don't have to pay people $10 an hour. They make all kinds of money. You know how much markup they get on things? You pay for tickets an then you get there and they upsell you a "line skipper pass" and you go "Hey, that is a nice feature. If we pay these people more we won't have to stand behind those other people!" and then there's like $9 hot dogs and $5 Cokes and stuff.Jul 06 21:36
DaemonFCI don't know why people even go to amusement parks, honestly. Many are not built well. You see injuries and deaths in the news all the time, and they just get to keep running them like that anyway.Jul 06 21:37
DaemonFC"Wendy’s, which relies on teens to salt fries and ring up orders, added a way for applicants to apply for a job through their smartphones. Applicants are screened using artificial intelligence, which gets them to an interview faster than if they uploaded a resume. The idea is to hire them before another employer can."Jul 06 21:38
DaemonFCThere's on topic, schestowitz Jul 06 21:38
DaemonFCWendys hires people and the decider is Hey Hi!Jul 06 21:38
DaemonFCYou know what says "This business is all about people!"? Have a computer program decide if you're worth hiring or not!Jul 06 21:39
DaemonFCMy god, not even Walmart has gone there yet, but they're close. They have a mostly-online hiring process, but you still do an interview with an actual person.Jul 06 21:40

DaemonFCWell, there's the insurance devices/apps that spy on you promising discounts and then that can backfire horribly.Jul 06 21:43
DaemonFCThey say in the tiny print you may save 10%, or you may pay 26% more.Jul 06 21:43

schestowitzor conversely, they rip you off for NOT installing oneJul 06 21:44
DaemonFCI just don't believe my privacy is worth a 10% discount on some car insurance that probably costs me $900 a year.Jul 06 21:44
DaemonFCBut, in fact, it won't even be that.Jul 06 21:44
schestowitzcan you tell me if it's always "app"?Jul 06 21:44
DaemonFC10% is the most you can save. And you may pay a LOT more than if you'd never signed up.Jul 06 21:44
DaemonFCPut otherwise, "You might save up to $90, or you may pay up to $260 more per year if you put this device on your car, but either way you tell us all sorts of things about you.".Jul 06 21:45
schestowitzdo you get penalised for turning it off?Jul 06 21:45
schestowitzhow do they know you drive without it?Jul 06 21:45
DaemonFC<schestowitz> can you tell me if it's always "app"?Jul 06 21:46
DaemonFCWith Root it's an app, with Progressive or Geico it's either an app or a device plugged into the vehicle diagnostic port that you send back to them when they're done.Jul 06 21:46
DaemonFCThey say it goes for a test period, which is certainly true if you don't have the device anymore, but with an app....who really knows?Jul 06 21:46
DaemonFC<schestowitz> do you get penalised for turning it off?Jul 06 21:47
DaemonFCWith MetroMile, you pay by the mile, and you pay the maximum daily rate of 300 miles each day it's not plugged in.Jul 06 21:47

schestowitzit got a lot worse than when I last checked...Jul 06 21:48
DaemonFCI've done MetroMile before with the Crown Victoria when I lived in Chicago and barely drove.Jul 06 21:48
schestowitzit's like those proctoring malware things...Jul 06 21:48
DaemonFCI mostly paid the base rate of like $15 a month at that time but 2.2 cents per mile (daily cap of 300 miles billed...they stop charging affter that).Jul 06 21:48
DaemonFCSo my bills worked out to like $20 a month or so.Jul 06 21:49
schestowitzdo you know some articles about this?Jul 06 21:49

DaemonFCIf you cancel your policy they send you a device return kit, postage paid, and you get 30 days to get it back, or pay a $150 penalty.Jul 06 21:51
DaemonFC<schestowitz> and the ethical issues?Jul 06 21:52
DaemonFCWell, at the time I used it, their privacy policy said that they didn't sell your data to others, but privacy policies change all the time, and most include a clause that they either don't have to inform you and that by continuing to use it under a revision to the policy you agree to the new one.Jul 06 21:53
DaemonFCOr they'll slip you a notification like Comcast did this month.Jul 06 21:53
DaemonFCHey, we're putting in a forced arbitration clause on all our customers, and if you use Comcast past July 3rd, you agree.Jul 06 21:53
DaemonFCUnless you're constantly paying attention for subtle changes to privacy policies for everything you use, a lot of the time you'll miss important changes which are not good for you. Microsoft does this.Jul 06 21:54
schestowitzYes, thanksJul 06 21:55
schestowitzI will work with your notesJul 06 21:55
DaemonFC<schestowitz> esp. the legal aspects?Jul 06 21:55
schestowitzit fascinates me media never covers this (that I know of)Jul 06 21:55
DaemonFCInsurance laws vary by state, and so what these companies do is they find states that they can easily work in and only offer policies there, or tweak them a little for that state.Jul 06 21:55
techrights-newsGNU has died. 06 21:56
-TechrightsBot-tr/#techrights-Gary “Gnu” Koll | KDUZJul 06 21:56
DaemonFCIn big rural states with bad public transit, there's no point to MetroMile even offering policies there. People in Texas drive all over the place. Gas is cheap. The state is huge. There's no bus.Jul 06 21:56
DaemonFCOr if there is a bus, it's what you'd expect for a red state city.Jul 06 21:56
DaemonFCMetroMile promotes itself as something that saves you money and nudges you to use the public transit.Jul 06 21:57
DaemonFCBecause if you get around Chicago with the public transit, you're paying them less in car insurance, it's less risk for both of you, and you're saving gas, but you keep the car for when you do need to drive it somewhere.Jul 06 21:58
DaemonFCschestowitz, There's really no reason for me not to use the public transit to get to Chicago and back. I mean, freeway car accidents are horrific. It's extremely unpleasant to drive in a big city.Jul 06 21:58

DaemonFCSo the commuter rail into the city and then the city's system to get where I'm going from there is the way to go with Chicago or if I need to go to one of its inner suburbs. Jul 06 21:59
DaemonFCI can just get to the Metra station and then use it as a hub or go to one of the others and continue out from there.Jul 06 22:00
DaemonFCIt takes longer, but I mean, it's not pleasant to drive. I don't like to drive.Jul 06 22:00

DaemonFCFrom what I can tell, the world is better off for the fact that his dad died a long time ago.Jul 06 22:08
DaemonFCYesterday, he was describing his dad killing dogs with boards and the sounds the dogs would make as they died in the back yard.Jul 06 22:09
DaemonFCThen his dad would cook them up.Jul 06 22:09

schestowitz[22:04] <DaemonFC> As for the Wendy's hiring by "AI" bullshit, that's all it is. Bullshit.Jul 06 22:10
DaemonFCFrom the look on his face and the crying I believe it happened.Jul 06 22:10

schestowitzthey blame "computer"Jul 06 22:10
schestowitznot racist... or sexist... blame naughty hey hiJul 06 22:10
schestowitzsame thing the censorship companies doJul 06 22:10
DaemonFCSo do you suppose that the hiring "AI" is designed with bias?Jul 06 22:10
DaemonFCI mean, it's probably something they paid for. Not developed in house. Like, here, do this and then don't tell us you did this.Jul 06 22:11
DaemonFCPlausible deniability.Jul 06 22:11
DaemonFCI wonder how that complies with Ban the Box laws like we have in Illinois.Jul 06 22:12
*schestowitz perturbed by the dog story, even if it's just textJul 06 22:13
DaemonFCThe law says that they can't check your criminal history until they've offered you the job and done an interview, but then they can retract the job offer at that point if they state the reason as being a criminal background.Jul 06 22:13

DaemonFCIt could explain a lot of Maricel's behaviors too.Jul 06 22:13
CParadoxum_DaemonFC: All AI is biasedJul 06 22:13
DaemonFCDifferent reactions to trauma. There's no telling what that asshole did to her.Jul 06 22:13
CParadoxum_It is the modus operandi thereof to an extentJul 06 22:14
DaemonFCHe chained Mandy up in his bedroom so he couldn't go outside.Jul 06 22:14
techrights-newsItaly 1-1 Spain, but #italy is all curled up like an embryo or frightened toddler, knowing that only penalties give them hope at this stage. Italy in the final = better for #englandJul 06 22:14
DaemonFCWell, the whole point of ban the box, I think, is so that a job interviewer has to give you a chance to make a good impression before they see your conviction history.Jul 06 22:15
DaemonFCAnd that law cannot possibly be obeyed by a computerized hiring process with no interviewer.Jul 06 22:15

DaemonFCSo I mean, if Wendys uses this in ban the box states, then they're really flirting with a huge lawsuit and fines.Jul 06 22:16
DaemonFCAnd I just wouldn't think it would be worth that.Jul 06 22:16

DaemonFCschestowitz, They have trademarks, so you'd have to remove the malware and call it something else.Jul 06 22:19
DaemonFCBut, it wouldn't be difficult to put in a metapackage that calls whatever you named the other program.Jul 06 22:20

DaemonFCschestowitz, There was an article about buying a used 2007 Chevy truck and yanking out a hard drive and finding out tons of info about the previous owner that wasn't wiped.Jul 06 22:21
schestowitzthanks, will addJul 06 22:22
DaemonFCI'll try to find it later.Jul 06 22:22
DaemonFCVehicles themselves have been doing quite a lot of spying for a while now.Jul 06 22:22
DaemonFCThe OnStar Button in the 2003 Impala still works.Jul 06 22:23
DaemonFCThe law requires them to call emergency services if you press it and ask for it. They can still tell where you are.Jul 06 22:23
DaemonFCschestowitz, I managed to find parts to fix most of the impact damage.Jul 06 22:25
DaemonFCThank goodness that stupid Toyota that hit me rode so low to the ground.Jul 06 22:25

DaemonFCZoom really has made it easy for the court system to run a rocket docket.Jul 06 22:31

DaemonFCThe "news" has gone about trying to stoke panic about "Delta Variant" flare ups, while also admitting that it's really not killing people who have been vaccinated.Jul 06 22:35
DaemonFCIt's amazing how they can run bullshit like this all the time, isn't it?Jul 06 22:35
