So Long XO-1After 10 years of regular almost daily service... My XO-1 is being put out to pasture.. I still love the thing but it time for it to retireShow all 5 replies
My Ben is still sitting on the mess of my desktop as if it was still in use, but I haven't really done so in a while.
Lately I had been using it to keep my shopping list while at the supermarket (and it works much better than a smartphone for the task, especially since I keep it on a lanyard and bouncing around while I have groceries in one hand and the checkout-while-you-shop device in the other), but then I went through a lazy period when I didn't update the "online" shopping list.
Maybe I should go back keeping my shopping list updated, and go back to use it.
I'm cheering for ya Anita
Come on people compassion isn't a crime. Nor is providing the necessities of life. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/anita-krajnc-trial-1.3733001 #StandWithAnita
Yes, sadly the CBC's site is one of those awful messes that assumes everyone is using a "Modern Bowser" and even then fails half the time.
Trying to read news on there with a text based browser is a mess with various things strewn through the body of the article.
IMHO they need to scrap it and get a new webdev team..Or replace the management forcing the webdev team to do such foolish things.
D'oh...That "D'oh!" feeling from stepping into the shower and realizing you still have your glasses on.
Things I wish I had...
Or had the time to write....
A proxy that would spot the Cloudflare intercept (when using Tor) and auto redirect to web.archive.org or proxy.ixquick.com or something similar. (Seriously... it'd save me like 3 clicks :D )
A #pump.io bot that spoted t.co and other tracking URLs and de-referenced them to the real URL.
A Smarter version of the above that would realize that the link posted was to a site parroting the origional information and would de-reference it to the origional (and usually much more complete) article.
A Libre AUR type repository and makepkg that works with all Libre Distros.. (Seriously.. being able to build from source with a simple "makepkg -si" command is a godsend. It has helped me keep using things (like Xombereo) that are falling behind/not maintained in the regular repos. Plus it's a good gateway app to get people building from source, using git, etc.
Can't believe how many outlets a parroting this story:
Without any linking to the actual study and NONE of then correct the syntax of the line to append so that it will actually work
which should be: net.ipv4.tcp_challenge_ack_limit = 999999999
And that is assuming that this is even the correct advice given that the syntax was totally fumbled I'd really rather see the full study.
found one with a link to the actual study. Which is here:
Dianara feature request...
Love Dianara.. Seriously it's probably the best Pump client out there.
But it seriously needs:
- To run as a daemon
- A socket or other IPC option for easy scripting
- Preferably the socket would allow authenticated remote connections
- Multiple front ends (especially Ncurses) that talk with the daemon
No... Really.. it needs all that.. and like.. you know, Right now...
The author of this note is in no way serious. Well he is serious about thinking Dianara is possilby the best client. But the rest is all "Porches and other pipe dreams" type rambling and should be treated as such.

“[...] What would you do with DianaraD that you could not do with the Pump API directly? [...]”
I imagine this daemon would make it simpler for other apps to interact with the network.
Kind of an already-configured-already-authorized-ready-to-go library xD
daemon would pull updates every x mins and cache
multiple clients would pull from the daemon
Daemon could have simpler auth mechanism then the API
Saving mor bandwidth
reducing the number of Auth'd clients on the Pump server
- especially since pump servers still lack a way to de-auth clients
Daemon could serve from cache and cache posts while pump server was down
Daemon could make it simple to have all clients connect Via Tor istead of having to set each client up fo do so manually
and more that I can't think of right now
WTF!! in some ways systemd is NOT progress
So needed to do a cronjob on my Parabola system..
crontab doesnt exist.. <sigh> ok there's probably a systemd way of doing it.. I should learn
manually create 2 file in ~/.config/systemd/user
Both files are overly verbose and Complicated
And from what I understand I need to do this for EVERY job?!? I cant just add a new * * * * 8 /script/goes/here line
at this point I'm like "Oh FFS I'll just install cron"
Please somebody tell me I'm wrong and that they haven't gone from a single line per job to two verbose files per job...

The ONLY reasons to use systemd timers rather than cron are:
- When you can accomplish something with them that you could not accomplish with cron. There are several such things. Being able to accomplish them is a good thing.
- If you want to eliminate cron entirely from your system for whatever reason. One reason might be that the blasted thing wakes up every second to check its jobs and then goes back to sleep, which is not the most power efficient behavior. I suspect but have not verified that systemd is rather more intelligent about waiting for timers to fire. (It wouldn't be too hard to fix cron to sleep long either.. too much horrible crufty C code for me to do it tho.)
The things you end up learning by reading the source
Just learned about OG: HTML meta tags. Not that I'll ever use them, as they tie into proprietary silos that I hate.. But good to know about and know how they work.
Thank-you bandcamp.com for having nice readable source.
