schestowitz-TR2were any changs made aftere 10pm last night? I added two nodes and refreshed manually too. the rss feed remains unchanged, I don't see any error. Not sure where/Sep 04 07:39
schestowitz-TR2what to check.Sep 04 07:39
schestowitz-TR2OK, it's not limited to RSSSep 04 07:43
schestowitz-TR2the front page, both gemini and HTTPS, are not refreshing to show the new items except in the top navigation barsSep 04 07:43
schestowitz-TR2it is now 4 nodes, I thinkSep 04 08:30
schestowitz-TR2the front page does not show themSep 04 08:30
schestowitz-TR2gemini shows nothingSep 04 08:30

Techrights-secyep, winding that down a littleSep 04 08:32
schestowitz-TR2no worries, being static page generator, it fails 'gracefully'Sep 04 08:34
schestowitz-TR2meanwhile I've made tarballs of ALL the accounts plus /var/www and am now copyiong those tarballc across to my PCSep 04 08:34
schestowitz-TR2sometimes just having a second frozen copy of things comes to the rescure if you accidentally bungle some fileSep 04 08:34

schestowitz-TR2but I want to be 100% sure againSep 04 08:46
schestowitz-TR2just to note:Sep 04 08:52
schestowitz-TR2with geek4geeks I used to filter on "interview"Sep 04 08:52
schestowitz-TR2far too much shit and webspam thereSep 04 08:52
schestowitz-TR2then I decided that site deserves no traffic at all, it's rogue like spamnilSep 04 08:52
schestowitz-TR2regarding michael west, most of the stuff there is not (A)AP repostsSep 04 08:52
schestowitz-TR2so I filter and delete all on "AAP"Sep 04 08:52
schestowitz-TR2soon the site as a whole will be no better than just getting MSM directlySep 04 08:52

schestowitz-TR2I think he might be missing a point; he wrote another post (about tech media) in tandem)Sep 04 09:07

schestowitz-TR2not always, but a lot more ofptenSep 04 09:07
schestowitz-TR2when it comes to EPO, back in 2015 the media played along with us a lot moreSep 04 09:07
schestowitz-TR2now it talks down on usSep 04 09:07
schestowitz-TR2like we're interfering with "the system" Sep 04 09:07
Techrights-secackSep 04 09:08
Techrights-secYes, there was quite a bit.  Including some major investigative work,Sep 04 09:08
Techrights-secperhaps most famously "The Pentagon Papers" as well as "Watergate"Sep 04 09:08
schestowitz-TR2even the media collabs with snowden and wikileaks -- not to long agoSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2pro publica not bags bribes from billgSep 04 09:13

schestowitz-TR2I still kick myself for forgetting the other example I had in mindSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2like, when they spend a lot time unearthing stuff that's really badSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2and bigSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2and had impact for a very long timeSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2if snowden came out to journalists today, e.g. gaurdianSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2they would spurn him, saying he's just trying to 'bash' bidenSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2like they paint a twitter wber as some musk enablerSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2kiriakou warned about what the trump raid means to people who are not trumpSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2nobody paid attention except scheerSep 04 09:13
schestowitz-TR2and since rt is effectively dead, nobody will give him a voice at allSep 04 09:13
Techrights-secnot too long ago and certainly not for very long eitherSep 04 09:20

Techrights-secto the attacks on ES and JASep 04 09:20
Techrights-secYes.  There are also newer ones like Reality Winner, Kirk Weibe, and others.  Sep 04 09:20
Techrights-secLifting up their cases occasionally can be covered from different angles eachSep 04 09:20
Techrights-sectimes since there are so many facets to each one.Sep 04 09:21
schestowitz-TR2binney was no longer media darling the moment he said something to tge effect (or sounding like) of supporting trumpSep 04 09:21
schestowitz-TR2and he more or less vanishedSep 04 09:21

This particular keypad had a combined row/column total of 11, which means it could support up to 30 unique Sep 04 10:23
schestowitzkeys. But only 12 of those are connected, so the tutorial includes instructions on how to identify the key that each row/column combo triggers. Once you know that information, you can connect the row and column wires to the I/O pins of an Arduino.</p>Sep 04 10:23

schestowitz                                        <p>The first step to replacing something old is to determine what and how the old system works. Given that it is an installer one would expect it to use WiX, NSIS or maybe even some less know installer tool. But of course you already guessed that's not going to be the case. After sufficient amounts of digging you can discover that the installer is invoked by this (1600+ line) Perl script. It imports 50+ Sep 04 10:25

schestowitz                                                <p>The “red lines” drawn in the letter concern the core of the planned EU legislation. Among other things, the ministries demand: “No regulations that lead to chat control”. Messages sent via messenger or email must be explicitly excluded from automated searches. This would remove the central and name-given measure from the planned regulation.</p>Sep 04 10:55

schestowitz                                        <p>Are extremism and misogyny linked? Joan Smith documented how the great majority of the men who committed terrorist killings in Europe since 9/11, whether far-right or Islamist, display strongly misogynistic attitudes. Most also have a history of physically abusing women — often in their own families — before committing acts of violence against strangers. The Womanstats database, created by Val Sep 04 11:06
schestowitzHudson and colleagues, has uncovered many statistically significant relationships between the physical security of women and the security of states: authoritarian patriarchal attitudes undermine good government in multiple ways.</p>Sep 04 11:06

schestowitz-TR2if inotify does not work as expected, as if we don't want to permit upload by every user Sep 04 16:01

schestowitz-TR2assuming it was deposited OK in the appropriate directorySep 04 16:01

schestowitz-TR2alternatively, maybe inotify will pick something up from a wget command or callback from em-extract/add-and-updateSep 04 17:29
schestowitz-TR2arindam is confined to the latter, so it cannot be done with wget directly Sep 04 17:29

Techrights-secinotify seems not to work as it should, I thought it worked in the beginningSep 04 20:29
Techrights-secbut it is not reliable or seems not to work at all now.  So perhaps the approchSep 04 20:29
Techrights-secyou suggest, of asking for a URL during the addition and then fetching and Sep 04 20:29
Techrights-secprocessing the image, might be more appropriate.   Sep 04 20:29
