CHATGTP is an acronym meaning covenant has attempted to glass the planet.

Some people use complicated commands like "sudo systemctl restart application.service.daemon" for process management. This is slow and error prone.

I use CPM. Ctrl-C, Ctrl-P, Ctrl-M.

@luca the posts are backdated, but will appear as new if another instance discovers them (you boost them, etc.). It's basically like you've always been here, but nobody noticed until now. If you want to try it, I'd recommend a test subdomain first to see the results.

(If you have the same domain, it actually is possible to keep the url structure, but it's complicated.)

I watched The Island again, in the vein of THX and Logan's Run. In contrast to Don't Worry Darling, it's much better at pacing and balancing tension before and after the big reveal. The stories are fairly different, but The Island starts out giving the viewer hints that not all is right. It's weird, this colony they're in. But in Darling, there's just one woman who's acting strange, and for too long we're not sure why we care. There's the one creepy scene of Pine watching by them having sex, and a lot more could be done with that. It's a cult, right? So make it cultish. And maybe a little something after she makes the realization. Don't need to go full Michael Bay, but there should have been an act between awareness and escape. The Island was fairly predictable, but I found it more consistently interesting.

@Hyolobrika when you sign up for someone else's server, you're choosing to cede your links to them. I didn't want mastodon.social to own my posts, so I chose not to create an account there. I'm not sure people are particularly well informed about making this choice, and indeed one of the big complaints about mastodon is the whole choosing a server aspect, but it's not like twitter or any other site where you have no choice.

@filippo yeah, people here are super fearful of the all seeing eye hoovering up their posts, so there's no one super relay. But smaller relays are quite successful I think. Just today some people were talking about a relay for all the instances in Pennsylvania. This is exactly the curated discovery that's supposedly impossible here.

You will get no argument from me that predominant implementation matters a lot, and I think mastodon has shown no interest in addressing some problems, but as someone who would like to see things fixed, I care that people know where the problems lie.

@filippo sure, but you can do that here too. Take a dump of your mastodon data, run honk import, you're up and running. Possible for several years now.

I don't think bluesky is a bad design, but I think the devs do a lot of sleight of hand comparing AT to AP wherein they claim something isn't possible, but they've solved it, but truth is it's basically identical. They mix and match AP behaviors and mastodon quirks.

For whatever path dependent reason, the mastodon network settled on sharing domain names, but this very easily could have been vhosting with full migration potential. That can still work. It is not a intractable difference between AT and AP. Etc.

(Sorry if you didn't want to get into it. You seemed interested.)

What we really need is a social network that federates via AFS.

flipboard, whatever the fuck that is, decided to append utm_medium=activitypub to every link posted here, which is really screwing with my searches.

The integration of AI and search means soon it will be impossible to google for images of Justin Trudeau in brown face. I'm sorry, Dave, I can't let you see that.

It is technically true that nobody can read your bluesky DMs.

These bluesky blog posts spend more time talking about mastodon than bluesky.

Wannabe security nerds have the strangest obsessions. "iMessage is insecure because if you message an undercover cop the police will have a copy of your message." Curiously, few suggestions as to which messaging app fixes this.

(There certainly are deniable messaging protocols, such that they can't prove you sent the message, but if you show up at the meet in person, it will hardly matter.)

Have the six people on threads with federation stopped posting, or did people here just stop replying? Haven't seen anything from them recently. Feels like six fate of the fediverse hangs in the balance crises ago.

Okay, minor hiccups aside, have a much better working version of honk to azorius/lemmy posting done.

Honk has always been microblog focused, but not to the exclusion of other uses. It also kinda works as a long form blog, too, if you like.

But what if I want to post links from honk to my favorite azorius group? Well, instead of butchering the azorius code to make it support Notes, I think it's better to improve honk's composition abilities. So now you can add links to posts, and they turn into Page activities. And you have more explicit control over cc and tags, etc., as well.

I still think the nature of links and comments is better suited to a different UI, but for occasional use I think this is fine.

How's it look? I posted a link to a lemmy group for go.

See it on honk.

See it on lemmy.

See it on azorius.

Sometime around the middle of January, I stumbled across One Billion Rows Challenge. I had a lot of fun working on this. I started with an execution time of > 6min and finished at about 14s. Here’s how I went about it.

Through surveillance we have observed discussions and comments on caffeine product websites and other fora indicating that these products are frequently shared by or dispensed to multiple users, increasing the risk of the product being separated from the warning statement.

The FDA has been reading your reddit posts about what you've doing with your bulk caffeine powder, and they are not pleased.

(Love that they went with fora over forums.)

Heh, mastodon serves mp4 files with a CSP header of 'none', so the browser refuses to play them when opened in a tab by itself. You need to open the whole web page in all its javascripty glory to get a CSP header that allows viewing video files.

Or maybe I just stop clicking on mp4 links. And nothing of value was lost.
