Worth remembering that Steve Bannon, the man who wound up the little key at the back of Trump, pointed him in the general direction of fascism & let him waddle off, was being hosted as a keynote speaker by The Economist in 2018 & platformed by the BBC as recently as 2019.

Happy birthday! How about that carrot cake?
Thanks very much @Noam Bergman ❤️️ Delicious better than expected. It made me realise how constrained our ideas sometimes are. 🙃

I know this jamiroquoi wannabe muthafucka is kinda funny but his tattoo is the symbol of Wotanism, which is a Nazi/Odin occult that believes Jews control the government, the Holocaust is exaggerated and champions the 14/88 slogan. He’s a real card-carrying Nazi.

An actual Nazi

I'm trying to run a bigbluebutton server through a reverse proxy in a NAT! I think I'm pushing the envelope quite a bit; finding myself struggling in this experimental territory with my rudimentary network admin skills.

Yep, all ports are forwarded directly to the dedicated bbb server, except 80 and 443 which go through a reverse proxy.

Everything is up and running, but fails at the point of initiating audio and video connections. I checked the UDP ports from outside with netcat and get straight through to the bbb server.

My hunch is that I haven't set up properly the additional coturn server that is recommend for various reasons. I'm now out of time, but will give it another blast soon.

Getting Nginx to run as reverse proxy was a bit fiddly in the beginning but I found helpful unofficial documentation for this bbb scenario. Setting up the Greenlight UI for the server via docker was plain sailing.

They: So what kind of cake shall we get for this do?
Me: Don't know, a nice one I guess.
They: Like what?
Me: How about a carrot cake?

They: Like this one?

Me: Whaaat...

Yes, where to order an installation for my neighbourhood?

An invaluable resource of invaluable resources. 😂😂😂

Absolutely delighted to share this news about my most recent publication.


What is it with webmin's unsightly rendering of these displays? Is this a feature or what is going on here? Anyone?

I've looked into Pi-hole, but I don't necessarily want to block ads. I know ads are necessary for websites' revenue. Can you turn on DNS caching without turning on ad blocking?
I'd imagine that's possible, because it only uses lists for blocking.

Wise words... still relevant, from The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui: A parable play set in 1930s Chicago, written by Bertolt Brecht.

Here's a good one!

This paper has been cited 1163 times, except it DOES NOT EXIST.

This 'paper' was used in a style guide as a citation example, was included in some papers by accident, and then propagated from there, illustrating how some authors don't read *titles* let alone abstracts or papers

I failed installing it on my old computer... no installation worked but running the program failed. I suspect one of the used python modules (tensorflow) is incompatible with my old CPU.

But on the new(er) machine it works fine. The resulting pictures are not distinguishable from the original by just looking at them.
That's great to hear @Tobias that you got this working on some hardware. Nice!

Algorithmic bollox!
Based on our algorithmic analysis, you could be a great remote software engineer at top U.S. software companies.

Me a software engineer? The nonsense we get from github is beyond the pale.

Left this cave and went ahead. On the develop branch once again. Look'n all fair after the database update eventually completed. Great!

Chelsea Manning has been released, but she was fined $1,000 for each day she refused to testify. Those fines now total approximately $256,000, and she's been ordered to pay them. Help her out:

Stockpiling enchanted battle axes to fight corona virus? Things have really gotten out of hand!
Yes, in the board game you can use them to fight all sorts of ailments. But you first have to reach level two to unlock their magic powers.

Went to see a farming project near a remote national park. This rural mountainous area is normally very popular this time of the year. There were almost no visitors at all. I guess the ongoing corona virus crisis left the place strangely deserted.
Yep, people here seem to like these long ears. Not all Brahman cattle have such pronounced pinna though.
@Andy H3 Yeah, I did some image searching earlier. Seem to be small/pointed and large/loose ear variants. Interesting.

Good morning and TZAG dear Fediverse.

Ritualistic gift exchange can be demanding. Regardless whether you're feeling ambivalent about hyper-commercialised festivity, you may still like to embellish your unsightly seasonal sweater in tune with your favourite open-source social network. Courtesy of kosamari!

S: Excuse me.

I: Excuse me.

S: Hey. Could we do that again? I know we haven't met, but I don't want to be an ant, you know? I mean, it's like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continuously on ant auto-pilot with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. Walk here. Drive there. All action basically for survival. All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient polite manner. "Here's your change." "Paper or plastic?" "Credit or debit?" "You want ketchup with that?" I don't want a straw, I want real human moments. I want to see you. I want you to see me. I don't want to give that up. I don't want to be an ant, you know?

Nice piece on post-truth politics.

Summary: Bullshit leaders simply rebound false allegation without providing any evidence and let digital echo chambers do the rest. They deploy metaphors based on social fantasies or conspiracy theories; the vague and alluding nature of their bullshit that is endlessly repeated across social media, makes it harder to confront.

Now this is quite a good piece of cultural analysis here.

R: Oh, I see. Once the rain stops, you'll leave.

Telegram's next release will allow users to cloak their telephone numbers. New feature aims to safeguard Hong Kong protesters against monitoring by Chinese authorities.
#telegram #release #feature #privacy #Hong Kong #SocialMedia
'The fix Telegram is working on would allow users to disable matching by phone number. That option represents a balance between making it easy for users to find their contacts and the privacy needs of those who rely on the app for protection against state security agents. '

Couldn't agree more. This cover absolutely rocks!

Leo really put his foot in this one.

Back online after prolonged outage

Wednesday 20 March 09:07 UTC our server went offline, due to a failure of its power supply unit. As yours truly was away on an off-site assignment, we were able to restore the service only today.

We're up and running again with no apparent loss of data!

A spot of gardening today on this public holiday. The newly planted banana is comming along nicely. The homemade fertiliser from coffee grounds and eggshells seems to be doing the trick.
