@firstname.lastname@example.org Cool! 👌 I’m away interstate at the moment for a work thing 😁
@email@example.com Not much, really. Went out for a long walk this morning since temperatures are finally down to a comfortable range. Now I’ll have a coffee and play some more Quake 4. 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org Cheers mate. Fuck me dead, I reckon s’arvo gave it away.
@email@example.com Hmmm 🤔 This is a cool looking embedded board! 👌
AmaIng that on these plane WiFi networks, clearly powered by satellites, even get this much bandwidth 🙃
Latency is pretty piss poor, but you kind of expect that with a moving target 🤣
@juhi Hi 🤗 Welcome to Twtxt 👌
@juhi Hello! 👋
@firstname.lastname@example.org Very cool! 👌
@email@example.com The way you wrote this made you almost sound “Aussie” 🤣
@firstname.lastname@example.org Micely put 👌
It just doesn’t scale IMO 😅 Much better to have smaller interconnected decentralised social interactions 🤣
@email@example.com This in and of itself ☝️ is why I believe so strongly that the whole “Fediverse” concept is utterly broken. You cannot scale human interactions like this. It doesn’t work on a centralised system, and it doesn’t work on a distributed system either. 🤣
@firstname.lastname@example.org The Fediverse has bureaucracy?! 😱 Tell me more! 🤔 – Me just writing some code (for another project)
What’s everyone up to? 🤔 Good weekend so far? 🤔
@email@example.com This classic and all-time favorite masterpiece came to mind immediately: http://myfunnymemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/The-Flying-Camel-Is-Very-Polite-As-It-Soars-The-Desert.jpg
Today was our yearly scout meeting. Three glass bottles in total didn’t survive the afternoon and evening. After the general meeting some of us went to the scout church service next door and then we had a nice barbie with friends and the general public.
Omg! I’m always playing on those pixel placing canvases, where it’s usually an endless war of factions or just things being attacked for no reason, but now someone did the most wholesome thing imaginable and drew another inugami facing mine and drew them shaking paws.
Learning from the big ones means learning to win. :-P
Thanks, @firstname.lastname@example.org. There are worse places for sure. :-)
@email@example.com Sums it up perfectly.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Caddy for the win, right?!
@email@example.com Gotta pay for that ~$250k/day price to run those many thousands of NVIDIA Telsa cards somehow 🤣
@firstname.lastname@example.org Can’t use Let’s Encrypt? 🤔
@email@example.com I didn’t know that, thanks! I generally don’t use the password manager on iOs or macOS even for that matter though, but thanks 👌 I do however recommend it to family/friends (but with iCloud turned off for obvious reasons)
@firstname.lastname@example.org you know OTP is baked into iOS Passwords, right? I just migrated from 1Password to it.
more than 90% of all AWS service API endpoints do not support IPv6
Sounds like AWS is instituting an IPv4 tax soon.
Oops, let a SSL certificate expire.
It’s not going to stay free for too long. GitHub is going to start charging 10$/month per user for personal licenses and double that price, for every corporate employee - source
They also already announced Copilot 365, priced at an even more ridiculous 30$/month/user, for the corpo customers, that 365 package applies to - source
@email@example.com The reason I was asking was specifically @firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning another open source OTP app that’s been audited and verified. So was thinking of switching out the OTP app I use on my phone 🤔
@email@example.com Agreed, I find it rather ironic really. First Microsoft stole everyone’s open source works, without asking, without acknowledgement, Now they’re giving CoPilot free to use to all those they stole from?! 🤦♂️ LIke da fuq?!
@firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah I feel the same way. On both points 👌 I find it ethically immoral to use CoPilot specifically.
@email@example.com Aren’t they just pretty dumb thougj? 😆

Love was changing the minds of pretenders…
@firstname.lastname@example.org I’m never too serious about code theft, because as developers, we all do a little copying and pasting from SO, or smashing the keyboard, until the code works somehow. Despite that, it’s still bullshit, that this was targeting all the open-source developers, who did not consent and probably also violating all kinds of open-source licenses in the process, yet at the end, it’s the proprietary developers and companies, who profit the most from it, despite contributing nothing, or the bare minimum.
I haven’t used it. Now Visual Studio and VSCode have some features that ‘read’ your code and try predict what your are typing or autodocument. I don’t use those that much, but saves you a few seconds a day.
What has been magic to me is ChatGPT.
“On Python/PHP/C# how can I do (thing that I didn’t know yet or I’m lazy to do by hand)” or “Show me an example with this input, I’m expecting that output”
And almost every time it generates valid code, well explained, and taking your scenario into consideration.
It teaches you, saves time, it’s faster than reading documentation. I’m amazed.
I could say I’m feeling similar. I mean, we all use technology, there is a nostalgic factor in it. Our life is easier thanks to technology, and we have a ‘hedonic adaptation’ requiring more and more improvements to our lifestyle.
The book “The Victorian Internet” was a good eye-opener for me, understanding that 50, 100 or 200 years ago, humankind had the same problems and needs.
And besides that, I feel everything is going too fast, although I don’t have a reference point. My country is/was living in an internal war and now everything feels ‘calm’.
As a user of technology, a hobbyist, and designer of new tech, it’s interesting to spend some time thinking on it.
@email@example.com Even stupider considering that Google Authenticator is what they advertise as the main 2FA method for your google account. Now think about how that works when the authentication code for your account is being synced, in your account…
After several hours of debugging in a larger task force yesterday and today, we finally figured out that we must have ran into an XFS bug (seems to work fine on ext4). An
ftruncate syscall hung forever and hence the process was caught in an uninterruptible sleep. This was the first time I ever witnessed
kill -9 not to “work”. But I learned a bunch of new stuff. I never dug this deep into the guts before.
Some of you probably know that
/proc/$PID/syscall tells you the current system call the process is executing. And
/proc/$PID/stack returns the kernel stack trace. Awesome stuff!
That’s a wonderful article on that matter: https://tanelpoder.com/2013/02/21/peeking-into-linux-kernel-land-using-proc-filesystem-for-quickndirty-troubleshooting/

What are you going to use it for?
On Android, I’m quite happy with Aegis, but haven’t found something similar on iOS. (With offline backups, TOTPs of 6 to 10 digits, and some customizations)
I tried FreeOTP very briefly. On Android, it doesn’t work as I’d expect. It doesn’t read the QR code from my app (having inverted colors) and gives a warning that my parameters are insecure (which could be with SHA-1, but it’s the first time I see that warning 👀).
And on iOS 10 (latest available on my old iPhone), I assume it gets an old version without support for 10 digits, what my Web apps use.
So I couldn’t really recommend it ¯_(ツ)_/¯
- It’s criminal: Copilot was only possible because of massive theft of other peoples’ work (no compensation or even acknowledgement to any of the developers whose code was used to create Copilot)
- It’s positioned to put software developers out of work or so fully de-skill them that they no longer know how to code anything but prompts (after which come corporate-justified salary and benefits decreases)
Don’t use it. No one should ever use it. You’re destroying your own future as a software developer by leaning on and supporting these things.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Depends, if it can fix the Yarn app.
How is everyone finding GitHub CoPilot? 🤔 Good / Bad ? 🤔
@email@example.com Always admire where you live 😍
