Techrights-sec2RT.  However, the most foolish of all was his going to Redmond;  There aren'tJun 26 07:37
Techrights-sec2words to describe how stupid that looked even at the time, now that some timeJun 26 07:37
Techrights-sec2has passed, it looks even more foolish.  That's really too bad, because heJun 26 07:37
Techrights-sec2may not be able to make up for itJun 26 07:37
Techrights-sec2strategicallyJun 26 07:37
schestowitz-TRCoin-operated SJVN has since then used that to say even RMS is OK with MicrosoftJun 26 07:38
schestowitz-TRand thus anyone who dislikes Microsoft is even 'more extreme' than RMSJun 26 07:38
Techrights-sec2Yep, they will continue to milk that for decades, assuming they are around thatJun 26 07:39
Techrights-sec2long.  If RMS kicks off soon, they will even pull not just an "OK with" butJun 26 07:39

schestowitz-TRthat's the article I mentioned to you yesterdayJun 26 07:55
schestowitz-TRI added that to tuxmachinesJun 26 07:55
schestowitz-TRabout once a ay I check gulag noise to see what "Linux" news I do not yet have an rss feed for, then I search for feed categry  Jun 26 07:55
schestowitz-TRand try to cover the gapJun 26 07:55
schestowitz-TRuntil some time from now when I won't check anymoreJun 26 07:55
schestowitz-TRpopsci won't cover Linux oftenJun 26 07:55
schestowitz-TRso even if there is an rss feed for such a categoryJun 26 07:55
Techrights-sec2how is LF paying journalists to play along?Jun 26 07:55
schestowitz-TRit would be a wasste of b/w at both endsJun 26 07:56
schestowitz-TRit is explained in the videoJun 26 07:56
schestowitz-TRit pays their employer (site)Jun 26 07:56
Techrights-sec2ok that it is explained in the video ought to be mentioned in the texxtJun 26 07:56
Techrights-sec2to encourage listening to the videoJun 26 07:56
schestowitz-TRI have added a long footnote as that was technically easierJun 26 08:02
schestowitz-TRI think we must repeat and repoeat the LF infoJun 26 08:02
schestowitz-TRin different ways and anglesJun 26 08:02
schestowitz-TReven if people get upset at LF they tend to forget and mayeb forgive after a whileJun 26 08:02
schestowitz-TRI mentions jperlow in passingJun 26 08:02
schestowitz-TRalong with various other thingsJun 26 08:02

schestowitz-TRnever underestimate the power of liars with access to oversized budgets (EPO had BILLIONS, more than LF)Jun 26 08:09
Techrights-sec2yesJun 26 08:14
Techrights-sec2Lunduke hasn't been all right for a very long time nowJun 26 08:14
schestowitz-TRif the wife is working, he might be OKJun 26 08:15

Techrights-sec2yes that was a good linkJun 26 08:16

Techrights-sec2impossible to operate without a car; and if one tries there will be social,Jun 26 08:16
Techrights-sec2legal, or dangers to contend withJun 26 08:16
Techrights-sec2taxis would be the next alternative but that is still a form of car usageJun 26 08:16
Techrights-sec2cars are the opposite of freedomJun 26 08:27
Techrights-sec2and by car, that includes all the "light" trucks that people actually driveJun 26 08:27
Techrights-sec2while still calling them carsJun 26 08:27
schestowitz-TRcars, like kids, are a liabilityJun 26 08:28
schestowitz-TRI have 5 nieces and newphewsJun 26 08:28
schestowitz-TRand they are iether miserable right now (in the US) or have learning/development perilsJun 26 08:28

Techrights-sec2both are common, but the former is ubquitous; businesses have maneuvered  Jun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2society into being pure misery for most adults and for all kidsJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2and it's worse for the kids because they have not learned to lie to themselvesJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2about their situationJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2then looking ahead they see only trouble, at bestJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2we're in a situation now where "TikTok" (chinese business) and other socialJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2control media companies determine what is culture these days, not the otherJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2way aroundJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2up until the 1980s the businesses (tv and such) reflected society and societyJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2and culture were determined by the population sort of organicallyJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2now it's a top-down model Jun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2anyway, the tech part of that is the abuse of addictive models via social    Jun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2control media to weaken and steer large volumes of individualsJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2ESP32 is quite weak, it can barely handle the encryption necessary for theJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2protocol and will crap out on the wireless quite often; though in all fairnessJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2WiFi is unsuitable even for general purpose computers and would be bestJun 26 08:34
Techrights-sec2removed and replaced with a completely different approachJun 26 08:34
schestowitz-TRmy pi is still on wired, a 'short leash' literally almostJun 26 08:37
schestowitz-TR1.2 m iircJun 26 08:37
schestowitz-TRi have other, longer cordsJun 26 08:37
schestowitz-TRbut the reason isn't wifi being reliable only part of the time (it is actually veryJun 26 08:37
schestowitz-TRreliable here since the upgrades)Jun 26 08:37
schestowitz-TRthe issue is the kernel  I thinkJun 26 08:38
Techrights-sec2wired is a lot faster Jun 26 08:50
Techrights-sec2if stuff is not moving around physically then wired connections are much lessJun 26 08:50
Techrights-sec2of a hassle and worth the speed increaseJun 26 08:50
schestowitz-TRI already told rianne twice that the pi won't be going back upstairs even when the wifi/kernel thing is tackled and it's wintertime (warmer Jun 26 08:53
schestowitz-TRupstairs, I might move back there in October)Jun 26 08:53
schestowitz-TRbut the reason was not speed; it's just that I configures the scripts and the router for the wired setup, which is treated as separate fromJun 26 08:53
schestowitz-TRwifiJun 26 08:53
schestowitz-TRand anyway I've learned to mostly ignore alerts on it and there is no screen attached.Jun 26 08:53
schestowitz-TRwe used to have an alaer for when irc scrollback over gemini:// did not updateJun 26 08:53
schestowitz-TRI don't think this has been a problem for a while now...Jun 26 08:53

Techrights-sec2okJun 26 09:00
Techrights-sec2their approach to "security" is job security (for them alone) and not actualJun 26 09:00

Techrights-sec2jihadistJun 26 09:49
schestowitz-TRone article I saw said "hate crime" in the headlineJun 26 09:56
schestowitz-TRthat is technically correctJun 26 09:56
Techrights-sec2by the way is there a link to the "original" joe rogan clip with RMS?Jun 26 10:00
Techrights-sec2what is the origin  / source then?Jun 26 10:01
schestowitz-TRno, it was alwasy a cip of the wholeJun 26 10:01
schestowitz-TRso iow, I don't even have a link for the originalJun 26 10:01
schestowitz-TRI got the clip from yewtu.beJun 26 10:01
schestowitz-TRit's like a spamnil, someone who uploads clips or portions of clipsJun 26 10:01
Techrights-sec2hmm suspiciousJun 26 10:02
schestowitz-TRspeaking of spamnil, I checked this monring, no clickfraud storm for 3 weeks nowJun 26 10:03
schestowitz-TRmaybe if called out on it he will hesitateJun 26 10:03
Techrights-sec2I found the clip in youtube but there  is no link to an original it seems Jun 26 10:04

schestowitz-TRseems modestJun 26 10:28
schestowitz-TRbut I wish he would focus on rebuttals to FUD and corporate abuseJun 26 10:28
schestowitz-TRafter he attacked RMS I didn't see much good output from himJun 26 10:28
schestowitz-TRseldom, some rebuttals to security FUSDJun 26 10:28

schestowitz-TRor was a holidayJun 26 14:45
schestowitz-TRbut seriously, even my blog feed barely yeidl anything the past 3-4 daysJun 26 14:45
schestowitz-TRvery very sparseJun 26 14:45
schestowitz-TRit's partly why I slept so muchJun 26 14:45
schestowitz-TRI clean the feeds very fastJun 26 14:45
Techrights-sec2yes it's been getting sparser; it's not just the holiday but the holiday wasJun 26 14:46
Techrights-sec2probably used to time the ramp downJun 26 14:46
schestowitz-TRa lot of these are not news sites per se but blogs of peopleJun 26 14:48

Techrights-sec2that's separate from the general news slowdow in some waysJun 26 14:48
Techrights-sec2private individuals are ramping down, tooJun 26 14:48
schestowitz-TRI need to adjust or reconsider a bit how I cover feeds, or add new ones, of new set of filters to run through the general newss sitesJun 26 14:52
schestowitz-TRgulag noise was getting far too messyJun 26 14:52
schestowitz-TRI really should have already abandoned it more than a year agoJun 26 14:52
schestowitz-TRit was angst, strife, and timewasting most of the timeJun 26 14:52
schestowitz-TRfor the mere chanc of finding the silver needleJun 26 14:52
schestowitz-TRuntil 2019 (IIRC) I also searched for "open source" news and it ended up mainly openwashing, spam/PR, and mindless junk thatJun 26 14:52
schestowitz-TRdoes not even resemble journalismJun 26 14:52
schestowitz-TRit had already gone downhill by thenJun 26 14:53
schestowitz-TRif it were not for tuxmachines, I'd likely have adopted another strategy or catch-wordsJun 26 14:53
schestowitz-TRnot that "Linux" gets us good ratio, esp. as there's this parasite called "LF"Jun 26 14:53
schestowitz-TRSo I get vaccine news and "crypto" news and shit Jun 26 14:53
schestowitz-TReven in yewtu.beJun 26 14:53

schestowitz-TRand got a ton of "crypto" junk from the past weekJun 26 14:53
Techrights-sec2Google News has such a low yield of relevant links that I find it hard toJun 26 14:54
Techrights-sec2imagine that many people still use it even out of inertia; I certainly can'tJun 26 14:54
Techrights-sec2imagine that new people would begin using it since it is just crapJun 26 14:54
Techrights-sec2the keyword "Linux" is attached to all kinds of crap unrelated to the actualJun 26 14:54
Techrights-sec2topic of Linux, kernels, and similarJun 26 14:54
Techrights-sec2I'm not sure what to say other than to comiserateJun 26 14:54
schestowitz-TRworse yet, you saw LINUX.COMJun 26 14:57
schestowitz-TRyou get things like family stories and work police and...Jun 26 14:57
schestowitz-TRgoing under the word "Linux"... somehowJun 26 14:57
schestowitz-TRDan Allowing (WHiting) has no clue what Linux isJun 26 14:57
schestowitz-TRand somehow he is now editor of that site Jun 26 14:58
schestowitz-TRreminds me of blacklash around 2008 when editor of LinuxInsider turned out not to be a Linux userJun 26 14:58
schestowitz-TR*backlashJun 26 14:58
schestowitz-TRnowadays "Linux" Insider produces lots of stenography for LFJun 26 14:58
schestowitz-TRas if did a few days ago, tooJun 26 14:58
schestowitz-TRin fact, a high % of its "stories" there are LF fluffJun 26 14:58
schestowitz-TRso that's another "Linux"-themed domain they got under their thumbJun 26 14:58
schestowitz-TRlike FOSS "Force" Jun 26 14:58

schestowitz-TRnow he barely posts once a weekJun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRusually when LF "commissions" something or has eventJun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRhe would maybe writ e review about once a monthJun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRI can guess which one pays the salary, however lowJun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRhe looks like roughly retirement ageJun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRSJVN had a major operationJun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRthey had to split open his backJun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRso zemlin can insert big giant Microsoft coinsJun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRthey called him "Zoltan"Jun 26 15:01
schestowitz-TRback in ~2005-06 Yahoo News wasn't too bad eitherJun 26 15:05
schestowitz-TRwhat's left of the remnants of that is just a press releases farm Jun 26 15:05
schestowitz-TRworse than worthlessJun 26 15:05

schestowitz[16:25] <SaphirJD> One question, would it be possible to manually drop my old nick so i could register it new?Jun 26 16:28
schestowitzMinceR: I think you did something like this before?Jun 26 16:28
schestowitzfor leah?Jun 26 16:28
MinceRi have done it for something, yesJun 26 16:30
MinceRi'm not quite sure what workedJun 26 16:30
MinceRbecause just dropping the account keeps the nick unusableJun 26 16:31
MinceRmaybe someone who has access can reconfigure ergo so it doesn't hold on to dropped nicks like thatJun 26 16:31
MinceRat least i think it would be an improvementJun 26 16:31
SaphirJDwell if it does not work, its ok tooJun 26 16:32
SaphirJDi simply keep this nick thenJun 26 16:33
MinceRlooks like it was nickserv sadrop and nickserv eraseJun 26 16:33
MinceRbut i'm not sure if there was some additional complicationJun 26 16:33
schestowitz-TRbtw, I've just made full backup of ircdJun 26 16:35
schestowitz-TRI'm looking into thisJun 26 16:35
SaphirJDas far as i can see this network requires sasl authentication if one registers a nick, so dropping it, re-registering it and login with sasl should work thenJun 26 16:35
schestowitz-TRgives me a change to make a backup anywayJun 26 16:35
schestowitz-TR*chanceJun 26 16:35

schestowitznor should I be able toJun 26 16:40
schestowitzso that's OKJun 26 16:40
SaphirJDwell the simplest method would be to drop the nick as said, that should be possibleJun 26 16:40
SaphirJD - perhaps this does help, there is the command unregister and eraseJun 26 16:42

SaphirJDunrgister and erase shold do no damage, as it just wipes out the specified account, its just the admin variant of the user drop commandJun 26 16:49
SaphirJDtheoretically even a /msg nickserv drop Saphir should be doing its job :DJun 26 16:50
SaphirJDas an admin must be theoretically be able to do that without requiring the user passwordJun 26 16:50
