TechrightssecI hope Murray had multiple backups.Nov 28 07:22
TechrightssecThe article and the day's work are of course lost but if the backups wereNov 28 07:22
Techrightssecdone responsibly it should be less than 24 hours lost.   Nov 28 07:22
TechrightssecEncryption is another matter though.Nov 28 07:22
schestowitz-TRsome days ago, when ipfs was having issues 'upstream' (nothing wrong at our end, no changed had been made)Nov 28 07:26
schestowitz-TRI turned on ipfs on the pi Nov 28 07:26
schestowitz-TRa couple of days later the lockfile got stuckNov 28 07:26
schestowitz-TRI only turned off ipfs there a day agoNov 28 07:26
schestowitz-TRand I noticed no updates in gemini since 25/11Nov 28 07:26
schestowitz-TRI deleted the lockfile, reran, but some older articles are not in geminiNov 28 07:26
schestowitz-TRI suspect it limited itself to maybe 10 latest posts -- less than the total in the RSS feedsNov 28 07:26
TechrightssecI can check in a bit, but the weak link in the current work flow is thatNov 28 07:26
Techrightssecthe links are gathered from RSS.  Nov 28 07:26
schestowitz-TRyes, but if ipfs is not running, then the weakness does not manifest itselfNov 28 07:28
schestowitz-TRafter several days of ipfs request timeouts I decided to temporarily run it on the pi, at least for older objectsNov 28 07:28
schestowitz-TRipfs worked like a charm again this morningNov 28 07:28
schestowitz-TRI suspect their hive/network/swarm had some issues with itself, maybe last week and some of this weekNov 28 07:28
schestowitz-TRit's hard to find any real news about ipfsNov 28 07:28
schestowitz-TRthere are reasons for thatNov 28 07:28
schestowitz-TRI think I narrowed down the io issues on "vonick" to quiterss and disk churnNov 28 07:49
schestowitz-TRit not only takes more ram then beforeNov 28 07:49
schestowitz-TRit would hog ioNov 28 07:49

schestowitz-TRthe simplest solution, for now, is to close the applicationNov 28 07:49
schestowitz-TRit's possible that the db itself is not in a good stateNov 28 07:49

schestowitz-TRsome new sites emerge, but not as many as go offline or become inactive and barely activeNov 28 08:19
schestowitz-TRthe issue isn't so much cleaning feeds or finding enough feedsNov 28 08:19
schestowitz-TRthe issue is lack of circulation of information, a lack of journalismNov 28 08:19
schestowitz-TRwhich in turn means harder to write, rather than repeat (WSL)Nov 28 08:19

schestowitz-TRI responsed to the journalist after she had sent me emailNov 28 12:05
schestowitz-TRthe 'proper' way, not Microsoft 'social' 'media'Nov 28 12:05
schestowitz-TRupc is a political issue, not a technical or legal issueNov 28 12:05
schestowitz-TRseems to be widepread knowledge... over timeNov 28 12:05
TechrightssecUPC is very important and getting coverage of the problems is crucialNov 28 13:02
Techrightssecin making sure it stays dead.  The more companies which get suckered byNov 28 13:02
Techrightssecteam UPC, though, the bigger the scandal will grow and the longer theyNov 28 13:02
Techrightssecall will try to draw out the admission of its demise.Nov 28 13:02
schestowitz-TRUPC is a "monster" bigger than any one companyNov 28 13:02
schestowitz-TRbecause it is convergence of several companies, across fields,a dn their controlled regimes and policial partiesNov 28 13:02
schestowitz-TRbut we must give it a fightNov 28 13:02
schestowitz-TRsometimes we even winNov 28 13:02
TechrightssecLaw is on our side AFAIK but the largest problem over time is the Nov 28 13:03
Techrightsseclack of accountability and oversight enforcing any aspect of law there.Nov 28 13:03
schestowitz-TRyes, _exactly_Nov 28 13:04
schestowitz-TRmotto of mine (not inspired any oneone): no regrets as long as you knew you did your best at itNov 28 13:08
schestowitz-TRin the case of the upc, I did my best. whether others join in and help... not my problem. As I did my bestNov 28 13:08
schestowitz-TRto get others involved in the issue. Nov 28 13:08
schestowitz-TRwhen orgs crush the law in their path (microsoft, eu, upc), they will struggle to paint critics as "haters"Nov 28 13:08
TechrightssecIt'd be nice though to get a little help on the sw patent problem from EFF, FSFF, FFII, OSI, or others even if they operating fulling iNov 28 13:09

schestowitz-TRthey won'r reformNov 28 13:14
schestowitz-TRthey will go under or keep at it (the "new" agenda)Nov 28 13:14

TechrightssecackNov 28 13:30
schestowitz-TRI tried with EFF and OSINov 28 13:30

schestowitz-TRyou look 37 ;-)Nov 28 18:21
DaemonFCI have a 3 PM appointment to see the NP.Nov 28 18:21
DaemonFCI chose Highland Park CVS Minute Clinic and 3 PM because I know that's usually when that NP that Mandy saw is there.Nov 28 18:21
DaemonFCShe didn't give us crap about not wanting to prescribe Paxlovid.Nov 28 18:21
DaemonFCSo you go with what you know. :)Nov 28 18:22
schestowitz-TRwho took it harder?Nov 28 18:36
schestowitz-TRyou or mandy, so far? (day 1)Nov 28 18:36
schestowitz-TRdifferent genetics, same vaccinationNov 28 18:36
DaemonFCI got it much worse.Nov 28 18:41
DaemonFCI couldn't move last night to get water and a pouch of Tylenol pills sitting right next to me.Nov 28 18:41
DaemonFCI had to dial him on my phone using my nose because it hurt too bad to move anything other than my head.Nov 28 18:42
schestowitz-TRso there might be long-lasting damageNov 28 18:43
DaemonFCThen once the Tylenol kicked in, I got up and drank some hot mint tea and gave my throat a few blasts of Vick's numbing spray.Nov 28 18:43
DaemonFC<schestowitz-TR> so there might be long-lasting damageNov 28 18:44
DaemonFCToo soon to tell.Nov 28 18:44
DaemonFCHopefully, they give me Paxlovid and it works.Nov 28 18:44
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, The COVID is much worse at night.Nov 28 18:44
DaemonFCIt hits you hard at night while you're trying to sleep. This is the second night it did that, and then it lets up a bit during the day.Nov 28 18:45
schestowitz-TRdon't know what PaxlovidNov 28 18:46
schestowitz-TRjust the brand, "Paxlovid"Nov 28 18:46
schestowitz-TRwhat chemical it is and what it doesNov 28 18:46
schestowitz-TRthere must be SOME side effectsNov 28 18:46
schestowitz-TR"chilling man, start upping your antibodies"Nov 28 18:47
DaemonFCIt's an antiviral drug.Nov 28 18:48
schestowitz-TRhow does it work?Nov 28 18:48
DaemonFCThe other one is Merk's Molnupiravir, but they don't use that much because it's not as effective.Nov 28 18:48
DaemonFCPaxlovid is a protease inhibitor and a medication booster that causes the protease inhibitor to stay in your system longer.Nov 28 18:49
DaemonFCIt basically inhibits viral proteins from coming together in a way that they can invade more cells.Nov 28 18:49
schestowitz-TRso it's for survivorNov 28 18:50
schestowitz-TRwon't prevent infection eitherNov 28 18:50
schestowitz-TRhence, masks, distanceNov 28 18:50
schestowitz-TRstill most effectiveNov 28 18:50

DaemonFCCame to speak with her for 15 minutes that way last week then tested +.Nov 28 18:53
schestowitz-TRI asked if a fourth one is there already, she through it was a mean wishNov 28 18:53

DaemonFCWork is the Catholic church even though healthcare.Nov 28 18:54
DaemonFCSo they get COVID in there all the time because religious bullshit on top of hiring idiots.Nov 28 18:54
schestowitz-TRsuperstitution can be lethalNov 28 18:55

DaemonFCAnd I know you can get it 5-6 times in rapid succession.Nov 28 18:56
DaemonFCImmunity is not durable to this. You've got a few months, perhaps.Nov 28 18:56
schestowitz-TR1)it still mutatesNov 28 18:56
schestowitz-TR2) it mutates faster when more people contract itNov 28 18:57
schestowitz-TRand (2) is why the current strategy is inaneNov 28 18:57
DaemonFCYes, "breakthrough" infections.Nov 28 18:57
schestowitz-TRthey will never stop itNov 28 18:57
DaemonFCLots of them, you know.Nov 28 18:57
schestowitz-TRpeople will just get more ill over timeNov 28 18:57

schestowitz-TRgovernment: no,no, it's milsdNov 28 18:58
schestowitz-TRit's OK, let it do its thingNov 28 18:58

schestowitz-TRand all of them feel it VERY wellNov 28 19:25
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, They couldn't prescribe Paxlovid because it's dangerous if you have high blood pressure and it interacts with 3 of my other meds. One potentially life threatening.Nov 28 22:45
DaemonFCSo I asked the Nurse Practitioner "What about Molnupirovir?".Nov 28 22:45
DaemonFCShe goes, "What's that?". I said, "The Merck pill. It has a different mode of action. Can we try that?".Nov 28 22:46
DaemonFCSo that's what I'm on now.Nov 28 22:46
