Back in ’94 I had a roomate for around 3 weeks. He was a busker and performed in various pubs around Montreal. He was, to this day, without a doubt the best classical jazz flamenco guitarist I have ever had the pleasure to listen to. He would often play so intensly that he would pass/grey-out. I knew him simply as “Yanni” or “Yanny”. He played as cutaway 6 string classical guitar. He left while I was travelling and I never saw or heard from him again. (1/2)

A few time while I noodled around on my six string he would come and sit and teach me some simple to play but great sounding little riffs and chord progressions.

My Friday ask, if anyone know him, or has any idea where he is, I’d love to see what he’s up to today, in the hopes he is still playing. Please retoot/share.

So, it really annoyed me that in Laravel 11 you cannot have multiple listeners for the same event in an array like you could in Laravel 10.

It's not like it's a big deal, as it's simple enough to implement, but just seems like a step backwards.

What do you think?

@stefanzweifel @michael Does this change have anything to do with opmimization at run-time?

My first attempt to root some Concord grape clippings is going well. Hoping to revive my dad’s ancient arbor that was down to only 2 vines.

Another large language model scraper blocked. This graph is from a site which runs a tool generating answers for people doing important research work. The AI scraper sent hundreds of thousands of lookup requests evading rate limits by using about a thousand IPs and pinned multiple webservers at 100% CPU (graph from one attached). This is a massive waste of electricity to train a hallucination machine.

@outofcontrol@phpc.social avatar

@beasts These are essentially DoS attacks at this point. If we didn’t block the crazy intense traffic from these, we’d have to upgrade to larger VMs at our expense. Takes time to block also, which can be in the middle of the night sometimes and then apply blocks to all our VMs. Not fun. Would like to hear any legal voices opinions on this, if they are around.

@hal_canary You clearly never owned a Zenith that had bad connection in it. A good slap on the side every 20 minutes usually solved that issue.

@nixCraft My 2 the middle button kept causing issues. Turns out the fix was simply to reseat it, only possible by opening. New 3 is as close to perfection as possible. Perfect weight, no mouse pad needed ever, comfy, happy hand.

So over the last couple weeks I’ve been getting back into weight training and more intense cardio in my little home gym.

I nearly skipped tonight because I’m so tired from work, glad I didn't now those endorphins have kicked in.

@kev Curious: when in the day do you work out best? Morning, afternoon, evening, other?

outofcontrol,
@outofcontrol@phpc.social avatar

@kev Ah, okey. So I’ve been doing cycling at night (all we had room for at home, would love a small home gym, I’m not a fan of public gyms, but that is another story), and then find it takes me forever to sleep and my sleep is horrible on those nights. Not organized enough to get up and do this in morning… too busy sipping coffee on the back deck and watching the sun rise. Life choices I guess.

My son's grade 6 teacher is leaning full tilt into the "embarrass you in front of the class for benign requests/mistakes" method of authoritarian .

I'm caught between wanting to call her out on it, vs, not wanting to make things worse for him since she seems like the retaliatory type. And there's only 1 month left in the school year.

Sigh.

outofcontrol,
@outofcontrol@phpc.social avatar

@syntaxseed Our son went through teacher issues. In French school, his teacher(s) suspended him in grade 5 for being unruly. His friends knew they could wind him up, and he’d get in trouble as he was the most rambunctious. We switched schools for 6-7 and he thrived. Teachers embraced his character and made it work for all his classes. He went from sad to being the happiest kid in the world! Hope you both find a way to get through these last few days and have a teacher that “gets him” next year

has died and been reborn around a dozen times. Yes, the company as it currently exists isn't the same as when Pong came out. Neither was it the same company as when Warner Brothers piecemeal sold it in the 1980s to Jack Tramiel, Mitsubishi, etc. Nor the same company when it was a Naamco sub-brand. Nor when Hasbro owned it.

Sure, Atari today isn't the same as it was in the 1970s, but the same is largely also true for Activision, SEGA, Rare, Square, etc.

@vwbusguy Fond memories of my computer teacher with his Atari and me with my Commodore Vic 20, debating endlessly which was better. Atari, Vic 20 and C64 will always hold a special place in my heart.

Given the iTerm hullabaloo, I tried Kitty (https://sw.kovidgoyal.net/kitty/). And I am unsure why I didn’t try it sooner, except having not heard of it. As a macOS and Linux user, it is more responsive, and miles easier to configure. Took about 15 minutes to get just how I had iTerm, and having all my configs in a simple .conf file means I can integrate with my dotfiles repo quite nicely. Bye-bye iTerm.

@shawnhooper Last night the temp went from 30 to 17 in under 30 minutes. From calm to heavy rain and wind in the blink of an eye. Then it was over just like that. No thunder. Tonight is hopefully nothing worse.

you don't need to blow leaves! they're just fucking leaves! it's literally in the name that you can just leave them there

@riggbeck @sc_griffith Oh here in Montreal they go to great lengths to blow the leaves into big piles then bring in monster vacuums and suck up those piles. Often getting 4 blowers going at once. In the spring we typically get 1-2 weeks of 6 days a week and 12 hours a day of those “they really should be outlawed” leaf blowers. Insane.

Thank you . It was great the last.... 15 years or so.

But it looks like we have to part ways here... 🤷

@heiglandreas No no no…. Tell me it ain’t so. 🤨 Link: https://iterm2.com/downloads/stable/iTerm2-3_5_0.changelog

This isn’t being forced on us, it appears to be optional, which is not a bad thing, in my opinion. Especially if it gets iTerm more market share, and us ai luddites can go on our way as usual.

outofcontrol,
@outofcontrol@phpc.social avatar

@heiglandreas Your statement suggests you are supporting iTerm through donations. Would it make more sense to inform them no more donations as long as they keep up this silliness? For myself at least, changing to a new terminal is a bit of a struggle, so hurting myself to spite the developer seems a bit unproductive.

outofcontrol, (edited )
@outofcontrol@phpc.social avatar

@radmen @heiglandreas Sorry, not meant as a threat at all. If we don’t agree with how a project is progressing, we can stop supporting it. I’ll bow out of this conversation now. Apologies again.

outofcontrol,
@outofcontrol@phpc.social avatar

@kboyd @heiglandreas In this case, yes, as AI has no place in any Terminal. Though I’d prefer to hear from my customer than have them vanish, even if they said “we can’t support you with this new feature.” If I was listening, and enough customers stopped supporting my project, it would be in the projects and projects users best interest to reassess. We could fork iTerm, remove the AI, and offer a version like Codium or Insomnium, without tracking and without AI?

(I work at Slack, opinions my own) A bunch of people are sharing viral social media posts saying that we train LLMs on customer data. It's a story that slots neatly into the hype/doom narrative around AI.

But it's not true — we even wrote a whole blog post about it last month: https://slack.engineering/how-we-built-slack-ai-to-be-secure-and-private/

Not discounting the other concerns around LLMs (e.g. hallucinations, environmental impact) that are totally legitimate.

@mattbrowndev @sebastian @derickr People are deservedly annoyed, partly because all these AIs are opt-out not opt in. And to make it more difficult, owners have to email you to opt out, instead of simply flicking a switch in their profile. I suspect you do this because you know most people don’t want to be a part of your AI in the first place, and this is the only way you can get enough users sucked into this AI.

outofcontrol,
@outofcontrol@phpc.social avatar

@derickr @mattbrowndev @sebastian In addition, doesn’t their policy state that end-users cannot opt out, only, Customers can opt out. So you work in the EU remotely for a company in the USA, and that company doesn’t want to opt out because of freedumb of speech, then your screwed. Is someone who has a free tier slack group considered a customer? I will test this Tuesday when I start opting all my clients out. But alas, I assume the damage is already done for past messages.

Love Obsidian, but for the past 2-3 weeks it would freeze and get slow.
TIL

  1. Themes and plugins must be upgraded separately from core
  2. iCloud appears to not automatically download all files, or quietly reverts some files to cloud only, making indexing and search in obsidian super slow
    3.Pages with large markdown table with broken formatting can cause Obsidian to become unresponsive for over a minute each time you try to open that page. Suspect this is a bug?
