schestowitzI'm going to try to install another browser, as Chome and other browsers don't work for me. They don't show anything when I log in (I sent you screenshots). Maybe I'll be logged in with my username in a few hours when it's installed (if that works).Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzIn the meantime, I have to raise other concerns.Jul 21 02:46
schestowitz The inevitable has happened to Slack. They announced it days and and they can be held criminally accountableJul 21 02:46
schestowitzTo say that Slack got merely “compromised” would be an understatement Yes, it did in fact get compromised, but it’s a lot worse. It’s far worse than a compromise per se. I'm going to explain, starting with the basics.Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzSlack accumulates all data and never deletes any of it. GDPR should be applicable here and I suspect that EU authorities have not assessed that aspect just yet. What Slack is to users isn’t what it is to Slack, the company. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) issued strongly-worded warnings about Slack and even Microsoft utright banned Slack for security reasons.  They very much foresaw the latest disaster.  It’s difficult to Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzassess or measure because it’s almost impossible to track the sources of rogue actors’ data.Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzSlack did not have a mere ‘incident’.  They knew about it for quite some time (at higher levels, too). It’s the complete doomsday scenario, an equivalent of having one’s own Jabber server completely and totally hijacked, and all communications in it (names, passwords) stolen. But in the case of Slack millions of businesses are affected. In one fell swoop. Just like that. Even the public sector. Military, hospitals, you name it…Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzSlack got cracked, but they won’t admit that. They will lie about the extent of the damage, just like Yahoo and Equifax did (each time waiting months before revealing it was orders of magnitude worse). They game the news cycle that way. People must assume that all data is compromised. Businesses and their clients’ data is on Slack. Even HR stuff, which gets passed around in internal communications. Super-sensitive things like Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzpasswords, passports and so on.Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzWho was Slack data copied by? Mirrored or ‘stolen’, to put it another way? Possibly by rogue military actors that can leverage it for espionage and blackmail, as many do. Covertly. You rarely hear about blackmail because that’s just the nature of the blackmail. It happens silently. Some would say Slack got “hacked” (they typically mean cracked). But it’s actually a lot worse than getting cracked! I'll explain further…Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzAbout a month ago Slack got to its IPO milestone.  But it committed an actual crime by not informing the customers of the breach. They would change passwords etc. had they known. But Slack did not obey the law. It did not inform customers. It announced all this after the IPO, in order to make shareholders liable, and it did so late on a Friday (to minimise press coverage about this likely crime). The shareholders too should sue for Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzconcealment of critical information.Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzSlack knew what had happened and why it waited all this time. This scandal can unfold for quite some time to come. Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzIt would be wise to move to locally-hosted FOSS. However, that would not in any way undo the damage of having uploaded piles of corporate data to Slack and their compromised servers. In the coming days many companies will come to realise that for years they tactlessly and irresponsibly gave piles of personal/corporate data to Slack and now a bunch of crackers around the world have this data.Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzYou can expect Slack to stonewall for a while, saying that it’s the weekend anyway.  When it comes to Slack, expect what happened with Yahoo; First they say it’s a small incident; Months pass; Then they toss out a note to say it was actually big; A year later (when it’s “old news”): 3 BILLION accounts affected. Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzNow, like Yahoo, they will downplay scope of impact. A lot of companies can suffer for years to come (e.g. data breaches, identity theft). Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzI have great concern for the company where I'm working for almost a decade, including our compliance with the law and our clients' compliance with the law. This is why I bring this up.Jul 21 02:46
schestowitzI'm going to install something new and see if I can somehow logged in. I already tried, unsuccessfully, from two of my laptops.Jul 21 02:46

schestowitz> I asked yesterday whether we support them at CMS level as well. This isJul 21 03:39
schestowitz> clearly some kind of CMS bug and we don't know what CMS they even use. IJul 21 03:39
schestowitz> think we support their infrastructure mainly.Jul 21 03:39
schestowitzUpon further investigation (the site actively hides this), their CMS seems to be (it's hidden) Django CMS. Does someone in our company have experience with Django CMS? I'm very good at WordPress and Drupal, but Django CMS is very rarely used by anyone. The client actively hides the fact that it uses this, maybe for security reasons (it takes a long time just to figure out what it is they're using)?Jul 21 03:39

schestowitz"ClearLinux doesn't have traditional hooks like most of the other distros. Yes, you can largely do away with some, but not all. For instance, you still need to run ldconfig after installing or removing libraries, and even if that's embedded in updaters, it's still a hook."Jul 21 03:41

schestowitzi agree, but they have so many damned excuses. i mean a classic example now is (american) football stadiums. theyre private, but they bring money into the area, so they throw the areas money into them. does that get anybody ownership? of course not.Jul 21 06:32
schestowitzi think it would be a lot nicer and neater if it worked the way it should-- public money, public access. note you have this problem in the uk as well-- in the states, a lot of/all works produced by the government enter the public domain. but public money can be used to fund works other companies make, then it doesnt. you have the bbc, you have to pay for a television license, but you dont get the rights to share, sell or even stream the Jul 21 06:32

schestowitzWell if you were to ask me, the saying that “money itself is the root of all evil” is true because it causes people to sin, and multitudes of sin could actually be given birth by this “root”. We could argue that it should be the “love of money” but this makes it hard to give solution to the problem that is called the “love of money”. As humans it is impossible for us to completely stop to sin in this imperfect world doomed Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzto destruction in the future. Thus, one can’t simply say I must stop this madness called the “love of money” and actually stop doing so.Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzWhile yes it is true that idolatry also gives birth to a multitude of sin and if we actually analyze this further it could be said that idolatry is the actual root of all evil but the problem here is that using the word “idolatry” would make the statement be difficult to fully understand by the usual people because when we say “idolatry” it’s usually tied to an act towards divine beings but in reality idolatry is applicable to Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzjust about any object within the scope of reality or imagination.Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzSo bottom-line is “money itself is the root of all evil” is a really simplified form of idolatry → love of money → moneyJul 21 06:53

schestowitzyes, but i often correct people because they misquote it as saying the money itself is the root of evil. @tomgrzJul 21 06:53
schestowitzactually, i think fear is the root of all evil (the bible probably says that too, but its a bit subtle about it)Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzpachad is the imagined/projected fear that is the root of evil, not yirah.Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzand the love of money is rooted in pachad, as a fear of non-abundance, the fear of lost wealth or lost security that leads to hoarding and sociopathy.Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzso the teaching about the love of money isnt wrong-- its a valid and relevant example of a larger problem.Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzi dont think money changed hands during or prior to the fall. “hey adam-- buddy-- wanna buy an apple?”Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzreally the truism is allegorical-- the love of security (wealth) over god, over our better nature, over love-- is what makes us abandon our better nature. the fall of man came from a fear of death over trust in something bigger-- money is an allegory for wealth, security, life. and also a false idol of those things. what makes it idolatry? when we put the lesser things over the greater things in importance, because of pachad (projected/Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzimagined fear.)Jul 21 06:53
schestowitzwhen we put and keep things in the correct context, when we rank the lesser things as lesser and the greater things as greater, that is tikkun and the end of idolatry-- thats when god (and ourselves) have nothing to be “jealous” of, because we already know things are as they should be. jealousy is also pachad.Jul 21 06:53

schestowitznow, you have sources that i dont, that say that the media want to keep rms and torvalds divided. okay, ill buy that. torvalds and rms are both notoriously loud, outspoken individuals. torvalds has as much right to that as rms, but historically he has inched further and further away from criticising monopolies, towards criticising critics of monopolies. and i think his own words are deeply dishonest.Jul 21 07:08
schestowitzthe double standard of painting torvalds as the voice of reason, while he defends the people attacking the things he gets all the credit for (linus the great liberator, linus invented linux, etc. it all started in 1991.) hes just sat there. and then years later, attacks free software and conflates it with “hate”.Jul 21 07:08
schestowitzif theres some kind of media conspiracy to make him into a turncoat, thats one of the most interesting stories that could come out. sure, anything is possible. but branding aside, in my opinion he was always part of the problem. a huge part of the problem. and what has he done to make amends, except nothing? to cut him slack about that (hes never apologised for the way he dishonestly smeared all free software advocates, see link) would Jul 21 07:08
schestowitztake a lot of evidence that he isnt just a lying schmuck. but as i always point out, whenever i say these things-- we might as well keep him in charge. the person they will replace him with is going to be even worse. between linus and gkh, linus is the lesser of two shits. as for the kernel, when it becomes fully infested with former novell and microsoft nonsense, we may find people forking the kernel for freedom. and i think a linux fork Jul 21 07:08

schestowitzPerhaps a little hyperbole, there… but… You know how we spent ages and ages convincing people to not run shell scripts directly from the internet? To use hashes to determine that online binaries are unmodified? To use web of trust to validate that further?Jul 21 07:23
schestowitzI looked into using ‘restic’ as a backup solution. On Windows, their recommended install method is something called ‘scoop’ - looks like an equivalent to Mac homebrew, python’s pip, Node.js’s NPM, etc… And how do you get scoop installed on a Windows machine?Jul 21 07:23

schestowitz“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” - George SantayanaJul 21 07:23
schestowitzThe link is a redirect to a github url. The linked script itself downloads more scripts from other github urls to include. The Go community ran into an issue not too long ago with a github project being deleted, and another user registering a new project with the same username and project name.Jul 21 07:23
schestowitzObviously, a DNS hijacking attack has always been a possibility and a concern; but here, we have multiple layers of attack surface. scoop.sh is a private DNS name subject to DNS hijacking, takeover upon expiration, etc, which could change the redirect to an attacker’s choice of site. Meanwhile the github entry itself is subject to authentication attacks leading to malicious uploads, pull requests with well concealed hijacks (for example,Jul 21 07:23
schestowitz when the script itself pulls from ‘https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukesampson/scoop/master/lib/core.ps1’, a Unicode attack on that DNS name might make it through a careless code review), as well as the usual suite of social engineering attacks to gain control of the account. Probably a few other attacks I haven’t considered as well.Jul 21 07:23

schestowitzWe add features we want and deprecate ones that people rely on, and we tell them to get with the program. We create the same kind of lock-in (in practice) by decreasing the compatibility with trusted development tools and utilities, so we can move more quickly (and drag users along) from one industry fad to another.Jul 22 02:27
schestowitzWe say this leads to more compatibility-- but it’s more compatibility with the things we care about, and less compatibility among the free software ecosystem they created for themselves. Essentially we drag them out of their world, and back into ours. It’s a reunion we have already monetized, already seized projects with, already used to purchase things that supposedly belong to everyone.Jul 22 02:27
schestowitzThe shift in these projects demonstrate that they belong a little more to us, than they do to anybody else. And just as the icing on the cake, we make more money from the development of these projects than the developers sometimes do-- it’s as if we hired them ourselves, but all we did was participate and influence.Jul 22 02:27

schestowitzYour aggressive criticism is duly noted, but a fair amount of research has gone into this post to take it thus far. Jul 22 21:52
schestowitzIf you want to understand the depths and reality of the conundrum animal-created works are causing in the copyright arena, I would urge you to read the judgement delivered by the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the monkey selfie case. The aim of this structure is not to motivate animals' creativity, but to safeguard it - the monkey selfie case ended in an out of court settlement of which the animal in question was not even a part.Jul 22 21:52
schestowitzOf course creativity and AI are pressing concerns-the future is here, and we are not ready for it. However, this issue is equally real-there may not be a Planet of the Apes-like situation tomorrow, but PETA claiming independent creation of an animal's version of Shakespeare is really not a stretch, going by how it jumped into the monkey selfie situation.Jul 22 21:52

schestowitzAlthough any censorship of mainstream conservative views has yet to be established so we arent counting deplatforming on youtube and facebook? mainstream oh, i get it. a vague qualifier. ive heard stories that the right is really the alt-right, and now here is a denial of censorship based on the two being separate. should i assume these two contradictory positions are from entirely different sources, or that its really just people saying Jul 23 08:43

schestowitz@tomgrz it isn’t that mysterious though: lots of people are very well informed in topics not related to their degrees but their hobbies or interests.Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzAlso Wikipedia is not a lecture book or a school or a science tool: it is a popular aggregation or summary of already published and lectored sources and research and stuff; one does not need high qualifications to read books and summarize their contents.Jul 23 08:46

schestowitzYet we hear quite a lot about some entries being removed capriciously, or entries being posted and reposted after removal because they were misleading. Some people seem to have made a career of posting material, but nobody knows how they operate - whether they are funded, or even a single person.Jul 23 08:46

schestowitz@tomgrz while this may happen it is almost never the case (“removing unexpectedly without explanation”). Reposting is stupid, as it just escalates the problem – the solution is to argue for it, especially if it can be justified by facts and not just emotions. And most deletions are up for voting and discussion anyway. Undeletions happen as well, same way.Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzIf something is misleading and gets deleted, well, I do not see the problem here.Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzI do not see how the knowledge about the editors would help judging the articles they have created.Jul 23 08:46

schestowitz@tom grz Yet we hear quite a lot about some entries being removed capriciouslyJul 23 08:46
schestowitzFor example women and people in color are often deleted. Eg. Clarice Phelps.Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzThat went so far, that a disagreeing admin (Rama) was demoted for restoring the article (Arbitration Committee case).Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzFram can get away with harassment, but restoring a black woman’s article is soo destructive, that it must be punished. The article is also prevented from recreation (salted) This is only one example of what happens routinely. These are the values of the English Wikipedia community.Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzSome people seem to have made a careerJul 23 08:46
schestowitzIndeed, there are many job postings for wikipedia editing… some of them declare the paid editing, some don’t.Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzBigger problem is the hidden agendas of the big money businesses, for ex. big pharma.Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzSome editors and admins spend hours every day to monitor pages of interest. If an editor posts materials unfavorable to their agenda, it gets reverted, the editor is attacked (even harassed), creating a situation, where the unwelcome editor can be blocked. The attacking editors are protected by the title “editor in good standing” (it’s a made-up concept, not in the policies).Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzThe most active and influential admins, who handle these disputes always in favor of the editors living (leaching) on wikipedia, are active 7*12 hours a week. Guess where their income comes from: not from the WMF.Jul 23 08:46

schestowitz@Teegarden unfortunately I can only review specified cases. Phelps was rejected due to lack of reliable sources, and seems not a big controversy for me. (Rama was unwise to revert instead of discussing it first, but I slightly disagree with the ArbCom here.) The other mentions of yours did not contain specifics.Jul 23 08:46
schestowitzI am usually open to briefly review cases of alleged bias but unfortunately it is pretty rare that I find a real case for review; most of the time the articles are rejected due to factual problems and not gender/minority/oppression ones; in fact, my guess would be the same ratio for non-gender-sensitive/non-minority/non-oppressed people with similar factual or source problems, but obviosuly there are no minority fighters for non-minority Jul 23 08:46

schestowitzincidentally, i am against mandatory injections, such as the ones given to sterilise people considered unfit to reproduce or unfit to live by the nazi regime. there are people considered unable to make medical decisions and thats a complex subject im not addressing in this statement, but for most (if not all) people, the right to refuse treatment is a cornerstone of medical ethics, and we would be very foolish to abandon both that liberty Jul 23 08:47
schestowitzand those ethics, for perceived safety. i strongly condemn any effort to paint people with such ethical concerns as “murdering scum,” even from a person who is otherwise respectable.Jul 23 08:47
schestowitzif the state chooses to abandon medical ethics and force treatment onto the masses, the people should call a convention to disband the state or better yet relieve the officials responsible, as well as place a firm ban on mandatory injections.Jul 23 08:47

schestowitzThe decision deals with a method for preparing a cell composition wherein the main claim comprises the feature "buffered sodium citrate solution of 0.10 M". The court concluded that literal patent infringement and infringement under the doctrine of equivalents (DoE) was denied for an embodiment having a concentration of 0.109 M (i.e. 9% above the claimed value). Besides, a further claim feature (polyester-based gel) was also considered to Jul 27 03:43
-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-www.justiz.nrw.de | Landgericht Düsseldorf, 4b O 117/16Jul 27 03:43
schestowitzbe not fulfilled. Jul 27 03:43
schestowitzSince the concentration of 0.109 M was not regarded to be within typical tolerances, the court further assessed the criticality of the claimed concentration for the desired effect. As no reason was found why the claim was restricted to one single value, a skilled person would not have found an embodiment with 0.109 M as providing the same effect in accordance with the claimed value (corresponding to the third DoE question, which is: “Jul 27 03:43
schestowitzAre the considerations that the person skilled in the art had to apply oriented to the technical teaching of the patent claim in such a way that the person skilled in the art took the variant into account as being an equivalent solution?”).Jul 27 03:43
schestowitzThe LG Duesseldorf decision confirms that measuring/manufacturing tolerances have to be considered when assessing literal infringement. Furthermore, the DoE does not expand the claim scope in the absence of a broader teaching in the patent. Jul 27 03:43

schestowitz> needed your feedback to know it: it's your site, and there are lots ofJul 27 05:06

schestowitz> not-my-web with only my criteria. And that was specially unconfortableJul 27 05:06
schestowitz> on the "styling" front. Also, didn't wanted to let the whole thing dieJul 27 05:06

schestowitz> start, without needing to tackle all possible ideas at once, and withoutJul 27 05:06
schestowitz> needing to touch a single given style. If that kind of work were wellJul 27 05:06

schestowitz> Also, when started to do it, I thought: "shouldn't use js, I should beJul 27 05:06

schestowitz> There's also new stuff like CSS grids, flexboxes, and many other stuff IJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> never tried.Jul 27 05:07
schestowitz> But in my experience, working on a CSS+HTML ONLY solution (which IJul 27 05:07

schestowitz> Things like the box model, pixels and margins that renders differentlyJul 27 05:07

schestowitz> On my blog I refused to program a reflow, because I couldn't care lessJul 27 05:07

schestowitz> with the fingers if I happen to read it on mobile, or just flip theJul 27 05:07

schestowitz> Jul 27 05:07
schestowitz> However, the problem arises when using wordpress plugins. While writtingJul 27 05:07

schestowitz> crap on it I never wanted there. Must've been some update. And that'sJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> just an example. I had to do some security, so I'm using a captchaJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> plugin, and then they changed the text editor so I installed theJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> previous one as plugin too... plugins just happen to be, and one has toJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> deal with them.Jul 27 05:07
schestowitz> Jul 27 05:07
schestowitz> I was frankly surprised (in a bad sense) looking at Techright's code:Jul 27 05:07
schestowitz> expected something cleaner, as it doesn't try to be fancy, and yet foundJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> lots of code doing lots of things. A good part of it was SEO and otherJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> automation like RSS tags. And most of the "bad" stuff (is not bad, isJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> just a lot of extra code) are WP plugins doing their thing. Working onJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> CSS only solutions shouldn't be much more than working on the HEADJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> section, with small class assignation here and there in the theme's bodyJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> template extrictly when needed. But then the plugins inject code in theJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> body, and the css classes must be aware of that code, and you'reJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> suddenly in a whack-a-more game between old and new problems thatJul 27 05:07
schestowitz> greatly differ from that one wanted to do in the first time. It sucks.Jul 27 05:08
schestowitz> And when that happens, javascript just makes it easier to deal with.Jul 27 05:08
schestowitz> Jul 27 05:08
schestowitz> So... Wordpress is no big deal. It shouldn't be. It's kinda easy andJul 27 05:08
schestowitz> helpful actually. But the plugins are another thing.Jul 27 05:08
schestowitz> Jul 27 05:08
schestowitz> Also in my experience, tags like summary and details tend to not do whatJul 27 05:08
schestowitz> one want to do with them. They usually have special rendering rules (norJul 27 05:08
schestowitz> really "special", just different between each other), which forces youJul 27 05:08
schestowitz> to do css that breaks when you decide to change a tag in the HTMLJul 27 05:08
schestowitz> structure, or just apply quirks for that to not happen. I didn't useJul 27 05:08
schestowitz> those particular tags, but footer, section, and others, where nice untilJul 27 05:08
schestowitz> suddenly they weren't anymore, and so I went back to 1998 divs where I'mJul 27 05:08

schestowitz> Jul 27 05:08
schestowitz> Techrights deserves a professional work. That means no trash code, noJul 27 05:08

-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-www.minds.com | 2 days ago I mostly quit #twitter (read-only). It feels great. Much time freed up. Eventually all Twitter will have left is high-profile career trolls.Jul 27 19:08
schestowitz"Jul 27 19:08
schestowitzPart of me wonders if twitter prefers people that polarize the debate. For instance people that consider information from both sides might be flagged by their algorithms as fomenting dissent and if not people that aren't trolls might not want to play twitters games where twitter pretends to be your mom and aks for your phone number and to acknowledge that their post violated their rules in order to get back on their platform. Jul 27 19:08
schestowitzI'm on the left and may have gotten suspended for using the #learntocode hashtag, which was supposedly part of a right wing harassment campaign...or at least it was according to twitter. Of course I don't know if this is the reason for my suspension and I refuse to give twitter my phone number in order to find out why.Jul 27 19:08
