Charles ☕ Stanhope likes this.This part is too absurd: "The judge set up future fact-finding about children's opinions about the toy hamster and whether there was real confusion in the marketplace..." I'm glad they were able to avoid confusing children and parents who went shopping for toy hamsters.

Libreboot left the GNU project on 15 September 2016
Clearly a lot has gone on in the past few days and although I support what the Libreboot project is saying in principal I just don't have enough info on the whole situation to know what happened. I would hate to think that the #FSF nade such a discriminitory blunder. Does anyone have links to more indepth coverage of this.. preferably from a neutral (tho trans-positive) third party?
Alex Jordan likes this.I doubt it. From what firsthand information I have (which is less than all available information) I can confirm that at least some of the events have been mischaracterized. And that's all I will say on this topic.
@JanKusanagi I have wierdness in the meanwhile feed.... Not sure if it's me, #Dianara weirdness, or #Pump.io Weirdness
problem is multiple idential entires in meanwhile feed. (Really I just want to be sure I'm not some how flooding #pump.io with useless duplicates)
If what you're experiencing is what I think it is, then it's this Pump.io issue. Mentioned in the BUGS file, btw =)
In that case, don't worry, you're only flooding yourself. That kind of duplication isn't real.
In my experience, the most common case is:
- You post a comment to your own post.
- You see your "posted a comment" activity twice.
- If that's the last you got in the Meanwhile feed, and update it again, the server will send that activity to you again. If you update again, it will send it once again, one each time. The cycle is broken when there's a different activity in the feed, maybe you liked something else, commented on something else, or somebody else did something.
You can verify if this is your case by closing Dianara and starting it again. Your Meanwhile feed should show your "posted a comment" twice, at most.
“[...] for example your relpy to this shows up 3x even after restarting and before I posted this comment. [...]”
Keep in mind that I posted, then edited twice... =)
You can check timestamps by hovering over the "X minutes ago" part, and see if they're different.
Is it just me??
Ok so came across this campaign in my morning headlines:
The article about made it sound like #NameCheap and the @Electronic Frontier Foundation were working together on this.. Yet I can find no mention of it on the EFF site. So Look like #NameCheap is just planning to donate to the @Electronic Frontier Foundation (up to $25,000) and get the appropriate tax write off.
Can't get to the page via Tor (Cloudflare) which tell me right away that #NameCheap doesn't give a #$%* about my privacy. And they require valid e-mail addresses. But they, and their partners promise to be good with them. (yeah suuuuuure)
To me this all look like:
- An attempt to create buzz for #NameCheap
- An sleazy way to co-opt the EFF's good reputation
- An e-mail address harvesting campaign
- All marketing and no intent to follow through and make ISP or social media sites follow this "bill of rights"
- A pretty sleazy thing to do
Could just be me.. Haven't had my morning coffee yet.. That's why I'm calling for more eyes on the thing.
Dont get me wrong.. I'd love to see the @Electronic Frontier Foundation get $25,000 I just don't see any plan by #NameCheap for follow through.
Also this isn't anything new the @Electronic Frontier Foundation said basically the same thing back in 2010
Tux!?! What have they done to you???
Some Pharmaceutical outfit has co-opted poor Tux

That I do not know...
It's a screen cap from a BBC show "The Doctor that gave up Drugs". It appears during a segment where he is showing all the promotional stuff littered around the Doctor's office.
I'm guessing probably not... But who know's...
The post was more about my reaction when I say poor Tux being used to hock Rx's, and painted ugly (actually that colour may actually count as F'ugly) Green? Yellow? Vomit? colour.
So.. checking my web servers log this morning... and came across this:
16 consecutive GET / requests all with the same IP, UserAgent, Referer, Etc.
followed by a GET /88.php
I'm guessing its probably a Wordpress exploit they are looking for but can find no reference to 88.php via web searches.
(Not concerned at all... that server doesn't even have PHP on it.. So Mostly I'm just curious and working on increasing my Admin-fu)

Giving up on PyBitmessage
None of my regular contacts ever picked it up
All the groups/channels are just dreck collectors
It's way heavy on bandwidth and processor (which I'm mind a lot less if there was useful data)
It just doesn'tr seem to be going anyplace.
Too bad. :(

lnxwalt was corrrect.. it was about Bitmessage.
sadly nothing new was learned... same bunch of yahoos that made usenet unsavoury back in the day. (re: dreck)
...and same lack of concern/effort/interest in protecting their privacy (re: regular contacts) as I see when I suggest any other Secure/Private things.

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.
