@darch@neotxt.dk Did nvAlt with SimpleNote in the past. But it lacks the ability to add images. Unfortunately. Also waiting for - I don’t know 10 years now - for nvAlt2. Brett is not getting it finished, I think. When will it ever be finished?

@shreyan@twtxt.net Can’t use it at work. And it is a bit too expansive for me.

@prologic@twtxt.net The bigegst issue with HedgeDoc I have is that it does not do search. But for publishing Posts for friends and some link collections for work it is nice.

In-reply-to » Microsoft’s GitHub Copilot is massive copyright infringement Before you read this article – note that Codeium offers a competitor to GitHub Copilot. This means they have something to sell, and something to gain by making Copilot look bad. That being said – their findings are things we already kind of knew, and further illustrate that Copilot is quite possibly one of the largest, if not the largest, GPL violations in history.

@ionores@twtxt.net I installed it and I like it. It is very nice.

I tested the yarn desktop client on wsl2 on windows 11, compiled and ran just fine there. Nice to have linux applications with gui on windows.

@mckinley@mckinley.cc Oh, this is so great! :‘-D Gotta have to tell this my mates who play Factorio. Also had to laugh when reading the introduction:

[Compared to Excel] serious financial, medical or industrial applications should probably stick to the more mature calculation capabilities found in Factorio circuits.

In-reply-to » Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, riding through the night…

@prologic@twtxt.net Thank you very much! The originals are now available in this 11.4 MiB ZIP archive.

@darch@neotxt.dk I could be wrong, but I don’t see a pun here, maybe some English native speaker can correct me. From my point of view it’s just a parody on Robin Hood with some ridiculously funny spin. Monty Python at their finest. The lupin part might be a reference to tulip mania, when prices in the Netherlands for tulips bulbs went through the sky in 1637. Or it’s just some random thing without a deeper meaning.

In-reply-to » @prologic This is so cool! @mckinley We went on a long hike (~24 km) yesterday, a short stroll this morning and are about to have an ~15 km night hike tonight. Let's see how that goes.

Yeah, @movq@www.uninformativ.de, we’ve cut it short and unfortunately didn’t make it to the third emperor-mountain. Some feet called it quits prematurely.

Our four hour long night hike turned out to be really great. It was surprisingly warm, most of the way a t-shirt was enough. Only in the end we had to pull over a jumper for the long sleeves. We saw plenty of bats flying around us and also a marten in one of the villages. It was sitting in the middle of the road and then hid under a parked car. On the downside, tons of mozzies were also around.

In one place the street lights shining on the tree leaves in combination with slight mist turned the scenery into something really incredible. Can’t describe it other than mystical. Just super beautiful and impossible (for me) to capture on film.

We brought our torches, but didn’t end up using them. The moon and starlit sky was enough. Only in the forests it sometimes got a bit dark on us. The first night hike of the season was a great success and will be repeated several times.

In-reply-to » I look at the stream of opportunities that were available,squandered, or avoided by me. Looking back. I am just glad I didn’t do more damage.

@Myunfocusedlife@mastodon.social It’s very hard to be sure, even in hindsight, what would go differently. An amazing opportunity could backfire and send you into a worse outcome. There’s really no way to be sure. Sometimes making a mistake actually leads you to dodge a bullet you never knew was coming your way.

In-reply-to » I played with nlpodyssey/verbaflow: Neural Language Model for Go today a little bit today.... First I had to download a ~2GB file (the model), then convert that to a format the program verbaflow understands which came out to roughly ~5GB. Then I tried some of the samples in the README. My god, this this is so goddamn awfully slow its like watching paint dry 😱 All just to predict the next few tokens?! 😳 I had a look at the resource utilisation as well as it was trying to do this "work", using 100% of 1.5 Cores and ~10GB of Memory 😳 Who da fuq actually thinks any of this large language model (LLM) and neural network crap is actually any good or useful? 🤔 Its just garbage 🤣

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Yeah well as it stands right now, this is insane. It’s total junk 😅

@prologic@twtxt.net You more or less need a data center to run one of these adequately (well, train…you can run a trained one with a little less hardware). I think that’s the idea–no one can run them locally, they have to rent them (and we know how much SaaS companies and VCs love the rental model of computing).

There’s a lot of promising research-grade work being done right now to produce models that can be run on a human-scale (not data-center-scale) computing setup. I suspect those will become more commonly deployed in the next few years.

@darch@neotxt.dk I fully agree with this. As the well-worn saying goes, you cannot address social problems with technological solutions.

@prologic@twtxt.net that if we want to get more people using twtxt/yarn, mastodon, ssb, matrix etc. etc. we should focus on making sure these alternative solve social problems that they understand and care about instead of just talking about the technological aspects

In-reply-to » @mckinley Yeah, that’s more clear. 👌

Right, especially not if it’s “cloud storage”.

Errrr, what I meant here: It’s not useful if “the cloud” manages the key. You know, those little check boxes at Google or Azure, “encrypt this storage and generate a key for me” …
