Made this awful mistake of not doing pre-prep work before going away on our next camper trip (now). Discovered this morning that some (idiot) person had turned off the power to the camper trailer and the battery was basically dead. I just hope it's not "dead dead". We plan to leave after 4hrs of Bulk Charge from the mains power and it's internal battery charger and hope for the best. I'm also brining a spare 12.8V LifePo4 battery that is basically full to power the fridge, just in case. Fark I'm an idiot πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

I discovered a privacy (tracking/analytics) problem in Ollama Web UI which I filed a bug report for in #687 today. πŸ‘Œ -- The author (or at least that's who I think was responding) was really quick and good and helped me narrow down where this was coming from, a library from Unstructured IO here -- Which if you look carefully you note:

{{{0}}}

Oh dear god 😱 Anyway, the author is proposing a fix (effectively enabling a DONOT_TRACK=1 type fis) and we'll see. The point here is that a) the author was really great at responding to this and b) LittleSnitch was the tool that helped discover this in the first place (I've found and blocked other things in the past too!_).

"Why did the tomato turn red? Because it saw the salad dressing! But wait, it gets better. I was trying to make a grilled cheese sandwich, but my cat decided it wanted a piece of the action. So there I was, battling my feline friend for control of the pan, when I accidentally dropped the sandwich into the tomato sauce. Well, let me tell you, that tomato-soaked grilled cheese was quite the sensation! My taste buds were dancing with delight as I savored every bite. And my cat?

Update on my Fibre to the Premise upgrade (FTTP). NBN installer came out last week to install the NTD and Utility box, after some umming and arring, we figured out the best place to install it. However this mean he wasn't able to look it up to the Fibre in the pit, and required a 2nd team to come up and trench a new trench and conduit and use that to feed Fibre from the pit to the utility box.

I rang up my ISP to find out when this 2nd team was booked, only to discover to my horror and the horror of my ISP that this was booked a month out on the 2rd Feb 2024! 😱

After a nice small note from my provider to NBN, suddenly I get a phone call and message from an NBN team that do trenching to say it would be done on Saturday (today). That got completed today (despite the heavy rain).

Now all that's left is a final NBN tech to come and hook the two fibre pieces together and "light it up"! πŸ₯³

To the maintainers of Linux Gizmos Regarding Advertising and Adblockers:

Hi,


Just wanted to reach out to say that the popup you've introduced on the site isn't great. I'm a bit disappointed frankly to see other sites, even small ones like LinuxGizmos copy after Googleβ„’ with their war on Ad Blockers.


You have to understand, Ads are both useless, total garbage at abtest and at worst actually downright dangerous.


Happy to support your site in other ways, just not through unsolicited content I did not consent to viewing or interacting with.


Kind regards


James

See, even a video I was just watching on Youtube just now, the guy said:

THanks for Surf Shark for sponsoring this video, it keeps the content free.


So that basically tells me that Googleβ„’ advertising on Youtubeβ„’ is utter bullshit. I have a funny feeling they're (Googleβ„’'s) crack-down on ad-blocker is just an internal reaction to a losing battle with their ad revenue streams in the declins from their ad business.

----

As an aside @movq and I were yarning about this before... The reason this form of advertising works so well is "brand awareness". There's some interesting content, and you don't mind that the guy or gal is sponsored by some company and they happen to make mention of it and even go into a special part of their video (without being annoying about it). You don't even fast forward or anything because you already like their voice, and they're not being completely obnoxious about what they're promoting, and what they're promoting isn't complete garbage, malware or worse.

Have a bit of a conundrum I need your thoughts on... I have stuck up early conversations with the developer of a nice little Document database in Go called clover. He has kindly offered to collaborate with me on a v2 rewrite (or improvements) to my Bitcask. He very rightfully points out that the project (Bitcask) would benefit greatly from the community (Github in this case) and potential growth from the exposure there. I retorted with Microsoft's recent blatant theft of millions of open source projects to train their CoPilot models without so much as attributing the works they used to drive what is now a sellable product.

What do I do? We're at a bit of a "sticking point" here and I'm not really willing to compromise. Microsoft are basically cheating, stealing assholes and should be sued and the execs who decided it was a good idea to steal content to build their product, thrown in. jail.

Important bit: The machine has no access to the internet, there are hardly any standard tools on it, etc. So I have to get something to it "air gapped".

However; I dunno whether I'm just using inferior models like codellama or codellama (See Models), or whether I'm expecting far too much out of these "glorified" token prediction machines, but all this seems to be good for is banging out repetitive keystrokes.

So in the wave of all things AI and this roller coaster we're all on, apparently actors, writers and so on are all on strike. I don't recall seeing anything in my feeds about this, so I had to ask a few folk in real life wtf was going on there...

Turns out they're all on strike because they fear that AI/ML models will take over their jobs. There are numerous cases where "tech" has already replaced an actor, now it will just get much easier to do.

The Shocking New Truth About CANCER! (Nobody Shares This) | Dr. Thomas Seyfried - YouTube -- Very interesting new (relatively new, last ~20 years) research on the causes of Cancer, preventative measures and treatment. Also highlights that Cancer is not a genetic disorder, but a metabolic disease caused by environmental and dietary factors. Dr. Thomas Seyfried is cited in ~200 peer-reviewed papers, and has several books on the subject.

Sadly (however), since the research is relatively new, is only cited on Wikipedia: Caner a handful of times and there is only one reference (so far) or mention of "refined carbohydrates" under the "Dietary" section:

Dietary recommendations for cancer prevention typically include an emphasis on vegetables, fruit, whole grains and fish and an avoidance of processed and red meat (beef, pork, lamb), animal fats, pickled foods and refined carbohydrates.[15][129]

Proposed name yarn.txt or "Yarn". Compatibility would remain with Twtxt in the sense that we wouldn't break anything per se, but we'd divorce ourselves from Twtxt and be free to improve based on the needs of the community and not the ideals of those that don't use, contribute in the first place or fixate on nostalgia (which doesn't really help anyone).

πŸ’‘ Quick 'n Dirty prototype Yarn.social protocol/spec:

If we were to decide to write a new spec/protocol, what would it look like?


Here's my rough draft (back of paper napkin idea):

- Feeds are JSON file(s) fetchable by standard HTTP clients over TLS
- WebFinger is used at the root of a user's domain (or multi-user) lookup. e.g: prologic@mills.io -> https://yarn.mills.io/~prologic.json
- Feeds contain similar metadata that we're familiar with: Nick, Avatar, Description, etc
- Feed items are signed with a ED25519 private key. That is all "posts" are cryptographically signed.
- Feed items continue to use content-addressing, but use the full Blake2b Base64 encoded hash.
- Edited feed items produce an "Edited" item so that clients can easily follow Edits.
- Deleted feed items produced a "Deleted" item so that clients can easily delete cached items.

One of the biggest problems I have with the currently proposed EU laws is that there is no distinction being made between "Free, non-Paid, Open Source" vs. "Commercial Software Products built from Open Source".

I find the current situation highlights the fact that large corporations build Paid-for products and services to consumers and makes Millions or Billions of $ Β£ € often without as much as either a) contributing back to open source or the projects from which they borrow and depend on b) or pay for what they use or support it in any financial way.

A large part of the Open Source Model in my view is often confused with "FREE" as in $0, but this is total bullshit. Companies need to understand that reusing a piece of open source software, library or component does not imply it is FREE to you. Companies today DO NOT vet, understand, review or even remotely contribute (in many cases) bug fixes, security fixes, etc, of the component they freely take and use and profit from.
