Ouais ben bah #FalloutOnPrime je trouve cela vraiment bof bof bof... Limite je ne comprend pas l’intérêt. Bon je n'y ai jamais joué mais l’idée de passer un jeu en film, comment dire... Ils n'ont plus de scénaristes a Hollywood ?

@dervishe

Ils n'ont plus de scénaristes depuis fort longtemps.

Je me souviens avoir vu le 1er Star Wars, le 1er Alien, le 1er Indiana Jones au cinéma quand j'étais jeune... On en est à combien d'épisodes pour chaque série ?

This being said, libraries being drug and sex dens means more reason to visit and support them! Yay!

Okay, so last night I was on a date, and I asked hubs what he was up to at work, and he told me he learned Python, so he could write a program to help people troubleshoot computer problems on their own.

I ask him, "You're creating a program to replace yourself?"

Apparently, just the boring easy stuff he doesn't want to deal with, because he has better ideas about how he wants to use his time at work.

Is this what you smart people do all day?!

Now, on to the dinner part of the evening.

Going through gelato paradise for all of you guys.

Or, at least, for @mwl ...

(Now excuse me while my digestive system goes)

This is quickly becoming an addiction.

Send help. Or, rather, send more money for gelato testing.

And, if gelato was a religion, Giolitti, in Rome, would be the holiest place on Earth.

Expect more pictures soon! 😋🍨

I am old enough that I can remember Eliza running on a friend Apple ][e.

And how, once you got past the novelty of having a computer "talk" back to you, it quickly became boring and repetitive, to the point it was funnier to trick Eliza into saying ridiculous things than it was talking to it.

All of this to say: I am not impressed by the latest LLM. They are superficially smarter than Eliza, but not by much.

Is Signal super slow for anyone else?

I see the signal apps is constantly throwing messages such as "You may have new messages, which is not encouraging"...

It's simple really: everything we decide to do together, we can accomplish.

United we stand, divided we fall. This is the story of the Tower of Babel: all people united, working together, can accomplish anything.

'Divide and Rule / Divide and Conquer' has been the strategy of the ruling classes from day one.

United, working together, we can solve all our problems. Billionaires will do anything and spare no expense to divide us.

We can solve all our problems. They won't let us.

Maybe some skilled Windows user can help me here.

Everyday I need to "paste" several time the build number of this day.

I would like to have something like the clipboard but independent from it.

So I can set the content in the morning and use so "paste" key to insert it as many time as required.

This separated from the regular ctrl-c/ctrl-v that I still use for other purposes.

This is possible?

Yes, take a look at clipboard managers.

Wait, I probably need to update all my #NetBSD VMs to 10.0 now that it has been officially released... 🤔 :netbsd:

@bkrawczyk

Take a look at what I posted: I ended up deleting the 9.3 VMs so I simply reinstalled.

These are testing virtual machines, so no biggie.

🚨 patch your Cisco AnyConnect boxes 🚨

For a 2020 vulnerability. Really.

Lots of ransomware cases coming in for Cisco AnyConnect/ASA recently and find finally we know how - CVE-2020-3259

It was a vuln which allowed a CitrixBleed style memory dump, found by a Russian research org now under US sanctions. Ransomware operators have an exploit.
