-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-techrights.org | Consultation About Direction and Future Focus for Techrights | TechrightsJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> I read techrights every day since ~2009. It's an amazing work, and IJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> recommend it every time I have the chance.Jul 14 07:37
schestowitzThank you. Much appreciated.Jul 14 07:37
schestowitz> And thing is, I believe techrights is fine the way it is. It goes fromJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> issue to issue as the time demands, and the future directions will beJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> most likely the same as before: Microsoft and the usual devils, patents,Jul 14 07:37
schestowitz> and attacks on software freedom in general. I don't feel the need for aJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> great change there. With that in mind, I wanted to suggest some otherJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> changes, not exactly or fully on the editorial focus front. Jul 14 07:37
schestowitzGood to hear you agree on the direction.Jul 14 07:37
schestowitzIf you ever have some article you want us to post or repost in the Techrights site, and the topic generally fits in, send it over. Your English is very strong.Jul 14 07:37
schestowitz> Here's someJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> things I've been thinking:Jul 14 07:37
schestowitz> Jul 14 07:37
schestowitz> * Sharing techrights is kind of a problem, because of its format. ByJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> "sharing" I don't mean "put the url in some social media": I barely useJul 14 07:37
schestowitz> social media, at all. Jul 14 07:37
schestowitzThat is probably a good thing. Good s/n ratio.Jul 14 07:37
schestowitz> I'm referring to the habit of using techrights asJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> a source of news and opinions. I can send individual posts URLs to myJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> friends and colleagues (I do it via email), and they do fine, but asJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> years pass I've been unsucessfull in making anyone to periodically readJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> techrights by themselves as I do; or as they do with their news andJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> opinion sites. What happens (somebody told me, and I kinda agree) isJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> that the articles are long to scroll, are mixed with the news roundupJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> posts, and that makes it hard to focus as a fast, mostly title-riddenJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> lecture, which is what everybody seems to do when looking forJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> information in smalls chunks of free time. Jul 14 07:38
schestowitzWe're aware of the issue. Hence the read background added about a decade back. But it's not helping enough.Jul 14 07:38
schestowitz> For example: if you happen toJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> encounter two succcesive news roundup posts, it's very common to keepJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> scrolling without realizing that you're on another post from anotherJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> day. And posts with long texts makes you focus on them even when you'reJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> not interested in that particular issue. The way techrights is publishedJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> demands attention, a non-casual reading environment.Jul 14 07:38
schestowitzWe don't spy on visitors and thus have little or no understanding of how they use/access/find the site.Jul 14 07:38
schestowitz> And that's costlyJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> for everyday uses. Also, you can't just take an hour on saturdays andJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> review a whole week of techrights posts, because that work is a lot moreJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> than an hour. And, please understand: there's nothing wrong withJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> techrights the way it is. As said before, it's and outstanding work. IJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> just try to say that, if I were to change something, it would be on theJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> usability front. I'm thinking of UI and post catalogationJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> functionalities. For example, I tend to write long posts on my blogJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> , and didn't liked the long scroll between posts inJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> the front page, so I programmed a "read more" (it says "continuarJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> leyendo", as I speak spanish) functionality. That kind of stuff would beJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> nice on techrights.Jul 14 07:38
schestowitz> For your usage reference, I read "http://techrights.org/?stories" on myJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> home (it's actually one tab in my browser's home), andJul 14 07:38
-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-techrights.org | Techrights | Free Software Sentry – watching and reporting maneuvers of those threatened by software freedomJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> "http://techrights.org/category/news-roundup/" on my work, every day, onJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> lunch time.Jul 14 07:38

schestowitzIt become a sort of index. Any thoughts on this might help. Jul 14 07:38
schestowitz> * Also, regarding the last point: please fix the tls cert. A let'sJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> encrypt cert would be nice. It's not a big thing, but it's annoying toJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> share a non-https link with my tech-savvy close people: their opinion onJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> the site is automatically degraded by just that fact. I say "alsoJul 14 07:38
schestowitz> regarding last point", because it could be understood as some "give theJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> website some love" kind of issues: not related to techrights guidelinesJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> or contents, but important because of other aspects.Jul 14 07:39
schestowitzThis is being worked on this month. The version of CentOS we use has long made it a pain to set up. A friend of mine (who will read this, he reads this inbox) can say more perhaps.Jul 14 07:39
schestowitz> * On a different thing to discuss, I've been posting some comments onJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> techrights posts about the importance of politics in what you do. And IJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> did this because I constantly feel (and not just in techrights btw, butJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> in the whole industry) that there's some "let's not get political, let'sJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> focus on the technical issues" principle guiding people's rationale. Jul 14 07:39
schestowitzWe're already quite political, even outside daily links. Sometimes we get complaints about these.Jul 14 07:39
schestowitz> AndJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> I believe it's WRONG, VERY WRONG. There are several comments scatteredJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> on the posts with my viewpoint, that have been reviewed by DrJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> Schestowitz himself, so I'm not going to get deep on the issue here:Jul 14 07:39
schestowitz> please refer to the techrights comments in case you get curious. ButJul 14 07:39

-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-techrights.org | The FSF Has Become Too Passive to Tackle Some Emergent and Growing Threats | TechrightsJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> I'm thinking something on the lines of "political levels". That is,Jul 14 07:39
schestowitz> upper and lower levels of abstractions, more general and more focusedJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> respectively. And I think of that regarding some criticism of the FSF onJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> techrights. The concrete example is the librethreat database, that has aJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> "recognized by FSF" kinda boolean field on its records. Jul 14 07:39
schestowitzThe librethreat database was not written by me but someone in Boston area. He has grown enamoured with the FSF and there's the question of whether they do enough.Jul 14 07:39
schestowitz> The issue seemsJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> to be "there are dangers to freedom that the FSF does not tackle", andJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> the conclusion tends to "FSF is getting soft". I don't believe they'reJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> getting soft: I believe they focus on the five freedoms in software asJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> human rights, and that's it. That's a lot. And that's not enough. It'sJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> not about getting soft, but about what you do. But getting to the idea:Jul 14 07:39
schestowitz> I'm thinking that the dangers in librethreat database can maybe seen asJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> problems in the context of labor rights (or even consumer rights)Jul 14 07:39
schestowitz> instead of general human rights. Maybe I should take my time to explainJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> that, and this message will surely not be the place to do do. But what IJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> try to say is that there are other politicalJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> perspectives/spaces/contexts where our problems can be stated and sharedJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> with our peers in a way that matters to them, and not just in a positionJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> of truth vs falsehood (as technical discourses tend to do). MaybeJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> there's something for techrights to explore on that kind of fields. IJul 14 07:39
schestowitz> believe techrights (and other organizations) should focus on a differentJul 14 07:40
schestowitz> political level than the FSF, in a way that gives everyone someJul 14 07:40
schestowitz> autonomy, some ground to work, and the means of agree/disagree onJul 14 07:40
schestowitz> particular issues, without breaking some larger community.Jul 14 07:40
schestowitzSome months ago you told me not to keep quiet on LF. I followed through and it seems like people value the articles about that. But it's not 'classic' politics.Jul 14 07:40

schestowitz> i expected you to say that as well.Jul 15 04:59

schestowitz> for a year or two ive explored the concept of distro-libre, an effort toJul 15 04:59
schestowitz> expand linux-libre into automating the modification of distros (to makeJul 15 04:59
schestowitz> them more libre.) ive already mentioned it to rms who says its not thatJul 15 04:59
schestowitz> simple.Jul 15 04:59
schestowitz> Jul 15 04:59
schestowitz> of course it isnt. i know, ive automated the remix of debian 9 to createJul 15 04:59

schestowitz> Jul 15 04:59

schestowitz> Jul 15 04:59
schestowitz> what we need (strictly my opinion) is to make the automation friendlyJul 15 04:59

schestowitz> concept, not the kernel which is more highly technical.Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> i imagine a future where distros are second-class citizens, more likeJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> the pellets and spools you put into 3d printers-- and free softwareJul 15 05:00

schestowitz> modified one.Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> Jul 15 05:00

schestowitz> sorts of things before the new iso is created.Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> the most tedious and errorprone and repetitive (squandering so much ofJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> what computers do best, which is assist such tasks) way to do this isJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> simple, manual remastering.Jul 15 05:00

schestowitz> im talking about a framework for automated remastering multiple distros.Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> the key difference is that it would put the people currently in chargeJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> of such decisions in a distro in charge of either choosing defaults forJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> the framework (ideally) or doing exactly what they always do, andJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> allowing other people (devs, users) to override that in their own iso.Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> Jul 15 05:00

schestowitz> init system you from the options available for that distro.Jul 15 05:00

schestowitz> untrusted with certain things.Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> Jul 15 05:00
schestowitz> systemd is a toolkit for a universal (corporate) distro in a way thatJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> takes choices and freedom away from the user. (you dont agree, but thatsJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> my position.) this is about creating a de facto universal distro, whichJul 15 05:00
schestowitz> *doesnt* rely on a certain corporation, a certain distro developer team,Jul 15 05:00

schestowitz> Jul 15 05:01
schestowitz> this is something i differ on with the fsf-- while i DO think *we shouldJul 15 05:01
schestowitz> offer people distros that contain no non-free software* (preferably evenJul 15 05:01
schestowitz> in the repos) i also think we should give people powerful tools to makeJul 15 05:01

schestowitz> Jul 15 05:01

schestowitz> Jul 15 05:52

schestowitz> I have backups of everything still, if needed.Jul 15 05:52
schestowitzYes, anything backup-related can be removed assuming we have offsite copies.Jul 15 05:52
schestowitz> What kind of rotation should there be for the tarballs in ~ since thereJul 15 05:52
schestowitz> are so many?Jul 15 05:52
schestowitzSometimes I manually delete some old backups to keep usage under 80%. Jul 15 05:52
schestowitz> The /var partition is at 82% already and filling up slowly.Jul 15 05:52
schestowitzYes, but the DB grows very slowly. It's 12.5 years' worth. What accounts for recent gains is the size of the log files. To give the DB room to grow until the next rebuild we can always shorten log retention or compress older ones. Can use zcat after that. So I'm not too worried.Jul 15 05:52

acer-box the privilege of having source is grossly underrated in the comments. Being able to personally build is a boon! Click and run is nice and all.

schestowitz>> Maybe the front page should contain a list of latest articles at theJul 15 18:54
schestowitz>> top, like in tuxmachines http://tuxmachines.orgJul 15 18:54
-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-tuxmachines.org | Tux Machines | Do you waddle the waddle?Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz>>Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz>> It become a sort of index. Any thoughts on this might help.Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz>>Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz> Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz> Tuxmachines looks indeed as an index, and that is actually a good thing.Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz> As a matter of fact, indexes are something I feel Techrights could doJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> better.Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz> Or, stated in a better way: when Techrights DO have indexes for itsJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> information, the indexes give a high level perspective of both, theJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> ammount of work being done in the site, and the magnitude of the issueJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> in question. This is not the case with sepparate entries. For example:Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz> giving links to my peers about Microsoft abuses, the links may be takenJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> as right or wrong, as serious or trivial, but they're almost alwaysJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> taken as isolated issues, because following all the links the entry mayJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> have is time consuming and most likely will not happen. The effect ofJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> sharing indexes like the reality logs are totally different: they'reJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> taken as big and longlasting issues, specially given the dates, evenJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> when obviously the whole index of links is barely read for the sameJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> reason as before.Jul 15 18:54
schestowitzWe cover several topics/stands, hence some wiki pages became indexes, e.g. http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/EPOJul 15 18:54
-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-techrights.org | EPO - TechrightsJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> And this is a problem with the news roundup entries. They're great asJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> information goes; but when looking for a relevant new on those entries,Jul 15 18:54
schestowitz> you gotta remember very precisely what to search for, and given theirJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> lenght they're barely shareable as a "check this out" link: I gottaJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> sepparate the new from the entry to make it shareable, and a lot ofJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> contextual Techrights information is lost that way. If news roundupJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> entries would be a sepparate page showing something like "select * fromJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> news where date = today", that's an excellent place to check on day toJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> day basis, and even should make it easy to add news (instead of havingJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> to compile a long entry): with a single tool like a web page with aJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> form, and very basic fields like "url", "title", "synopsys", andJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> "opinion", it should turn into less compile work, more flexibility forJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> opinions (which today are stated as an addenum to the news title), andJul 15 18:54
schestowitz> could also make them searcheable without losing techrights insights onJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> the issue or even techrights users comments on the entry (as sharing theJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> external url does). Many times I've lost situational valuable links onJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> news roundup entries, and also many times I did not comment on thoseJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> entries because I wanted to talk about a single new (and the entry talksJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> about many issues, so it felt kinda offtopic). And I want to talk onJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> Techrights about those things, and not on the external link's site.Jul 15 18:55
schestowitzWe need to think of something better than a linear list because the site has a rather odd 'taxonomy': links, linux, patents....Jul 15 18:55
schestowitzI really need to figure this out. Others expressed similar concerns.Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz> Things like that sound like a few weeks of work in spare time, and notJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> some big site refactor. Of course, it's full of details, and ideas likeJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> that should be handled with care. But as years pass Techrights stillJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> mostly the same, and this is a front where things COULD be done (IDK ifJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> should). The one big technical/functional change I remember was theJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> migration to Drupal, but that's it.Jul 15 18:55
schestowitzDrupal is just a wrapper on the top-level domain. It was an old attempt to organise some things as the wiki felt insufficient. Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz>> This is being worked on this month. The version of CentOS we use hasJul 15 18:55
schestowitz>> long made it a pain to set up. A friend of mine (who will read this, heJul 15 18:55
schestowitz>> reads this inbox) can say more perhaps.Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz> Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz> Is it CentOS 5?Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz> I had trouble before (about 2014 I guess) trying let's encrypt scriptsJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> on CentOS 5, but I can not fully remember if it was solved on 6. What IJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> can assure is that let's encrypt works fine in CentOS 7, and is veryJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> easy to use there. Maybe you can do some local tests on Techright'sJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> software with a CentOS 7 docker image, in order to check if an upgradeJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> is viable?Jul 15 18:55
schestowitzA friend is still looking into it. Should be similar when done on tuxmachines.Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz> Also, that's another useful thing: you could use a docker image to getJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> the certs, and then just put them where they should be in your server.Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz> Is not really a big deal, just learning the tools cumbersome details.Jul 15 18:55

schestowitz>> We're already quite political, even outside daily links. Sometimes weJul 15 18:55
schestowitz>> get complaints about these.Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz>>Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz> Jul 15 18:55
schestowitz> Yeah, I wasn't thinking exactly about you there, but as a more generalJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> thing. Precisely, you get complaints about politics, and that's the kindJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> of things I was refering to (and some doubts about politics I felt inJul 15 18:55
schestowitz> some of your entries, which I commented on back then). It's a mark ofJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> our field, and even more like of our time in general. Politics is beingJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> seen as the source of anguish and irrationality. And in our field,Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> technical knowledge seems to frecuently be seen as a lifeguard or a safeJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> place for that. It's not, and avoiding politics is leaving it to theJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> enemy. The problem is not politics, but the enemy's corporate power.Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> Politics is difficult. It's demanding and tiresome. It also bringsJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> dangers for things like one's health, or even our loved ones. It's noJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> joke at all. But we can't just run away from it.Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> Certainly, being a presence in political issues is not for everyone. ButJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> that is very different from the general politics discredit we seem toJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> get from everywhere.Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> That's why I believe politics is an absolutely central issue in placesJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> like Techrights. Specially because you do it the right way: focused,Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> respectfully, and telling what you feel is right to tell, as a day toJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> day basis. Given the years, that's honestly some exemplary work you gotJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> on your site, and definitely would be a loss for many of us if someday,Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> somehow, Techrights turns no longer political (and can't even imagineJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> how, with a name like that). But the problem here is not Techrights, butJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> the IT community, and the perception of politics in general.Jul 15 18:56
schestowitzGroklaw faced similar issues. PJ told me about it.Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz>> Some months ago you told me not to keep quiet on LF. I followed throughJul 15 18:56
schestowitz>> and it seems like people value the articles about that. But it's notJul 15 18:56

schestowitz>>Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> I kinda disagree.Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> "Kinda", because I'm not sure if got what you meant. But Think about it:Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> How exactly issues like enemy entrysm and ethical deviations are notJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> classical political problems? I think Plato himself wrote about thoseJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> issues.Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> And that's a very weird thing about IT: they usually believe to beJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> working outside of society, with different rules, because of itsJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> specificity and crazy fast times. They're the technological vanguard,Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> the true force changing everything everywhere, that will solve everyJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> problem if people just let it do its job. And the tech knowledge neededJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> for the whole thing to work seems to be the only legit authority in theJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> field. Kinda like science itself in late XIX and first half of XXJul 15 18:56
schestowitz> century... before the atom bomb.Jul 15 18:56
schestowitz> Jul 15 18:57
schestowitz> I've written some thoughts about it before, here:Jul 15 18:57

schestowitzCurrently, all our sensitive communications end up on the server of a large corporation in another country, where this data can get sold. It included NHS stuff. This too is a problem as we need to be Open Source not only in name and I''ve been waiting for Rajiv to set up Matrix or similar for me to join. It has been months and I think it's essential for our company to demonstrate it takes security seriously. I can set up an Open Source Jul 17 17:54

schestowitz> minor (private) update on the nonsense in my life, she was too drunk to remember she struck me, or so she says. plus shes getting someone to say shes physically incapable of hitting me, which obviously (very obviously to me) is not true. so she (allegedly) cant apologise for doing it, and shes also trying to make me look like a liar. this is against he backdrop of me paying the bail, as well as working with the da and eventually atty to Jul 17 18:04
schestowitzget all her charges dropped (if it were up to me they would have already.) i made it clear in my own statement i didnt want to press, i made it clear when they showed up i didnt want to press, i made it clear to the da more than once i didnt want to press-- in fact i said if i had known that they would have to based on what she did, i wouldnt have mentioned it.Jul 17 18:04
schestowitz> Jul 17 18:04
schestowitz> i think shes borderline. she drinks, freaks out, gets in my face and yells, and still-- still! wont stop talking about getting back together. i want this person to leave me alone, but she persists. i am familiar with borderline because ive dated a couple of them. NOT fun. but this one is the very worst of them. the worst. all the best.Jul 17 18:04
schestowitzI prefer not to make any comment on personal lives. Now that I don't have a comment, just that I know too little.Jul 17 18:04

schestowitzthe problem with userscripts is that its based on javascript, it lacked security, and now its too confusing to write for-- too limited. perhaps we need a simple language just for filtering dom/html/scripts. we also need a python-based web browser that can filter js per-website. if i had that, you couldnt pay me to use anything related to mozilla.Jul 17 18:24

schestowitzi didnt think the french were as intellectually lazy as that. intellectually dishonest, yes-- but i thought they would gladly travel half the earth in a canoe to prove one of their factoids of alternate (primarily marxist) history, and here you cant even get off your giant fromage-laden derrière.Jul 17 18:34

schestowitzany forum is better, imo. i have seen one (only one) instance of it where it was not nightmarish. for whatever reason (config?) howtogeek manages. discourse isnt a discussion forum platform, its a discussion management platform. it creates discussions that are tailored, not open. now you can turn every topic into a stifled, rigid board meeting. imo it makes everything, everything worse. heck, i would even prefer mastodon.Jul 20 05:54

schestowitzi work under the possibly false assumption that everybody knows 12 different forum platforms, and that naming them off would be redundant. but on top of that, im sure there are also some new ones other than discourse, which are perfectly suitable but i dont know their names.Jul 20 05:55
schestowitzso i have to name names in terms of what i know, which is also what i dont like-- at least regarding discourse. people still use phpbb, im sure its quite ugly by web 2.0 standards, so why promote something obvious that people have heard of when something else might exist? i wouldnt doubt there is a new platform worth trying, but i couldnt tell you a name, sorry.Jul 20 05:55

schestowitz"In the screenshot you sent 2 articles were not yet published. The items were sorted chronologically. That still seems to be the case (see screenshot). As for the carousel, is it possible that it's sorting or ordering by article ID rather than time assigned to the article? Changing post/article times won't affect its ID or position in the database.

schestowitzSo Slack got compromisedJul 20 08:21
schestowitzThe complete equivalent of having one's own Jabber server completely and totally hijacked, and all communications in it (name, passwords stolen)Jul 20 08:21
schestowitzPossibly by rogue military actors that can leverage it for espionage and blackmail, as many doJul 20 08:22
schestowitzBut it's actually a lot worse than getting crackedJul 20 08:22
schestowitzAbout a month ago Slack got its IPOJul 20 08:22
schestowitzSo for years it covered up this massive incidentJul 20 08:22
schestowitzTo prevent the company from totally collapsingJul 20 08:22
schestowitzIt also broke the law, it committed an actual crime by not informing the customersJul 20 08:22
schestowitzIt announced this after the IPO, to make shareholders liable, late on a FridayJul 20 08:23
schestowitzThis is a very, very major scandalJul 20 08:23
schestowitzTheir Web site hardly works with any Web browserJul 20 08:23
schestowitzThey use it for data-mining Jul 20 08:23
schestowitzThis is their business modelJul 20 08:23
schestowitzAnd later they get cracked, passing all their surveillance 'mine' to even more rogue actors than the company itselfJul 20 08:24
schestowitzCompanies can not be held legally liable for having put their information on Slack serversJul 20 08:24
schestowitzThis scandal can unfold for some timeJul 20 08:24
schestowitzIt would be wise to move to FOSS ASAPJul 20 08:24
schestowitzHowever, that would not in any way undo the damage of having uploaded piles of corporate data to their compromised serversJul 20 08:25
schestowitzI wanted to note before, but did not get around to phrasing it clearly; while investigating uwsgi for a number of nights I found that there is very little online documentation about it in the troubleshooting sense (as in people reporting issues). Looking up errors/error messages often leads to little but the underlying source code (which generates these error messages). The official project documentation is about 4 years behind, I think. Jul 20 08:35
schestowitzThis isn't to say that the project is stale or obsolete, only that when things go wrong it's tricky to understand what to try because not many people report to have had similar issues.Jul 20 08:35
schestowitzI already tried many things, including setting up the whole thing from scratch or inserting missing files where the program attempts to find them. It leads to hopping from one kind of error to another.Jul 20 08:35

schestowitzWe cannot access these machines directly. You need to access our Windows box, then access a Windows session at MAPS and from there PuTTY.
