Pinned toot

So, whitespashe.uk has lost all of it's toots.
This is due to a truncate command being run on the local statuses table, including the cascade option to include other related tables.

Normal functionality is there, so I don't think anything else has been affected. I'll try to see if there's a way of reimporting our user account exports, but if not:
Whitespashe.uk has been given a fresh start!

One of the niche projects I'd like to do if it wouldn't eat into my time would be to host a whole wiki source server of all the books and articles in all the Elder Scrolls games and have buttons to do easy citing of sources, and meta data on each source to indicate when it was writen, where it is found, and in what game(s). Maybe even have series grouped into categories too, or books that have a known connection.

Phishing training 

So you click on a work-related title (something like "merge request #48 needs your approval").

Click. Redirect to page from your antivirus provider: "This could haber been a phishing attack. Remember not to open or click on email links unless you know the sender. (click here for more info on how to protect yourself)

*click*

DIDN'T I TELL YOU NOT TO CLICK?! You could have been infected by ransomware now! 😠

giving maskless white ladies dirty looks in the middle of the supermarket is a little extra fun when i have a fuckin skeleton face

> 15 years ago, I co-led a team trying to give 100% free Internet access to all of San Francisco starting with the poorest neighborhoods first. The network would be anonymous, with no ads, no cookies, etc. Approximately a $20-25 million gift. The result? We were chased out of town.

"It had two. Which is I suppose still a surprising number."

I couldn't resist turning this tweet into a #comic : mobile.twitter.com/Bry_Mac/sta
It was as good an excuse as any to experiment with the comics brush set. :)

Any sufficiently advanced kernel API is indistinguishable from magic.

Just pulled the trigger on my Projekt:ONI sticker and T-Shirt from the hackers.town store: etsy.com/shop/ThegibsonGoods

Now I can look the part whilst playing the part!

Had this going on, in case anyone else has the same problem with some of their apps on Android opening then immediately closing.

sudo rm -rf /System/Applications/News.app

rm: /System/Applications/News.app: Operation not permitted

If sudo <command> results in an β€œOperation not permitted” error, it’s not your computer.

PS. Dear fediverse, no need to suggest alternatives, my daily driver is a StarLabs LabTop running @elementary and I dev cross-platform/web apps that I need to test on macOS and Windows also. Thank you.

Media 

Interesting to me how suddenly as an end to the pandemic may be on the horizon, nearly every media outlet is touting how β€œworking from home is bad, actually” all at the same time.

What a convenient gestalt.

At times, ansible really really annoys me.

But then, I need $THING like - in series, across all these backends in haproxy on multiple servers, in drain -> maintenance -> upgrade the app -> wait for /health UP -> add it back to the pool -> repeat.

And it's so so sweet.

It's my swiss army knife of DevOops. And considering that, it's not unreasonable that it doesn't have a DAG (Graph) of all the tasks/roles, or a clever distributed raft backend.

Because it only took 5 minutes for the task.

Whitespashe Mastodon

This is a mastodon instance that allows users to share ideas and participate in discussions.

Whitespashe is named after the Admins' first joint coding project, which replaced spaces within a Word document with non-printable characters.
This would preserve readability, but would fool plagiarism detection sites such as Turnitin.
This site was named after this project, as it represents a desire to create whilst simultaneously sticking it to the Man (or in this case, the hellscape that is Twitter).

We have a hidden service frontend running at: http://whtspshcehqg4nj4wqyiopjcfxradop7ujflycxum7wkfivewqt36zyd.onion
