WOW, 5 digits! You’ve got me beat! Not doxing myself because full name and all used for work; but I was a 6 digits UIN starting with 2 here.

Given that the indices are not available locally, it’d be difficult for your own algorithm of any sort, AI or otherwise, to rank items higher/lower than others.

Too bad it sounds like they’re SMR drives. Else it might be fun to shuck them for SFF servers.

So… just making sure I am understanding this properly: centralized service monopoly by one government backed provider…? Doesn’t that got quite a communist ring to it?

I guess it also makes it easier for the one government backed provider to require facial recognition for a centralized authoritarian policed state.

Oh, right, I forgot this is Lemmy, that’s exactly the goal of the vocal minority. Never mind. Carry on!

They’ll try to pull out of Apple Pay/Google Pay. At least that’s what Walmart did / is doing for the longest time in favor of their CurrenC or whatever thing in the US.

At the end of the day, that’s just trading one spying conglomerate for another.

Vast majority of those who are vocal about “ownership” are from that reddit cult. They’ll drag you down to their level with nonsense and stupidity, trying to convince you that GameStop will make them multi-billionaires. Be careful and don’t waste too much of your time on them.

Same one about the retirement fund operator from Australia.

If memory serves, the default docker compose expose the database port with a basic hard coded password, too. So imagine using the compose without reading too much, next thing you know you’re running a free Postgres database for the world.

Edit: yep, still publishing the db port with hard coded password…

BuyVM has $24s/yr KVM server that you can attach storage at $5/TB/mn. So 5TB should set you back $325/yr all in. They’ve been around for quite some time — I’ve been client since 2011 — so they’re not likely to disappear anytime soon.

No multi-region unless you roll it yourself. Their offerings are primarily web hosting centric, so you’d need to do the heavy lifting yourself if you want more infra. Also worth noting that they’re definitely not in the same league as the big players, they’re just an old vendor that isn’t likely to disappear on you.

Both 87 grade gasoline and typical red wine contains about 10% in ethanol. The limitation isn’t the ethanol. Let the users decide whether they want to consume it…? No! Just like the gasoline refineries did not make it with intention for human consumption, Apple designed the iPad hardware for a different use case than what you’d like.

Just like how the gas station attendant will tell you that you cannot consume gasoline at the gas station, Apple will tell you that you cannot run macOS at the Apple Store. If someone wishes to attempt it, there’s nothing preventing them from buying gasoline, taking it home, and attempt to consume it in their home. If someone wishes to attempt running macOS, there’s nothing preventing you from buying it, taking it home, and attempt to hack macOS onto it.

Gasoline isn’t the product for someone wanting to get drunk; just like how the iPad is not a product for you because it doesn’t fit your use case, and that’s fine. You can always wait for when they inevitably release the M4 variant of MacBook (or MacBook Air if weight is a concern), which will fit your use case better.

There is no “hard” limitation differentiating guzzling down a gallon of gasoline vs a gallon of red wine; nor is there any “soft” limitation of deploying your own OS.

Vast majority of people do not possess knowledge to extract consumable ethanol from gasoline, doesn’t mean it is impossible.

Vast majority of people do not possess knowledge to attempt to deploy their own OS onto an iPad, doesn’t mean it is impossible. Very talented individuals have been hacking iOS boot loader since original iPhone (no version, no suffix) days.

If one are so inclined, there’s plenty of places to learn, and expand one’s knowledge to attempt what most aren’t able to do. The alternative? Bitch whine complain and repeat until a multi-trillion company give a damn. I ain’t holding my breath.

Siri was already behind the competition from its initial launch.

Apple Siri release date: October 4, 2011

Microsoft Cortana release date: April 2, 2014

Amazon Alexa release date: November 6, 2014

Google Assistant release date: May 18, 2016

Apple generally adopts technologies later than others so they could build on top of others learnings; things here was the exact opposite where they started years before others, and ended up paving the way to allow others to build better products based on their learnings.

There’s two ways around the symptoms you’re trying to treat:

  1. Don’t bother with internal vs external. Always route through external which gets encrypted by the origin cert to CloudFlare and then CloudFlare to your browser. This is simplest in that you don’t need to manage two sets of DNS records and you don’t end up with different certificates for the same domain (in the odd event where you end up needing to do something like certificate pinning). Or;
  2. Just add the origin cert to your systems’ trust store. You know the certificate, it will encrypt the traffic anyway, also you’re accessing the service via intranet so there’s really no attack vector here.

Probably worth calling out that although 1 feels like there’s more hops (and there absolutely are), with any decent internet, you’re probably not going to feel it. This is because the edge server is probably situated very close to your ISP (that’s how they make sure everything responds quickly) so your over all round trip should only be affected by a negligible amount of time that you most likely won’t notice.

There was similar things done on Reddit during the big exit. I doubt it achieved what people expected it to achieve. Even if they’re not visible externally, I’m sure they can easily access (thereby make deals to license) the data out of their backend / backup; just a matter of how hard they want to try (hint: it’s really not very hard).

Countries like Singapore where there’s death penalty for drug possession/trafficking — whether we agree with it or not is secondary here, just highlighting purely from a whether or not it is working point of view — seems to be working.

I’m not condoning the death penalty, far from it; but I’m inclined to think actual enforcement (instead of catch and release that we have now), with support programs to get people off the stuff, will steer the needle towards better direction, as opposed to decriminalizing it and let people who needs help continue to abuse illicit drugs the way they want, where they want, when they want.

The RAID rebuild time is going to be longer than the OEM warranty… love it!

When I was younger, I bought a fair bit of music CDs, mostly for the sake of collecting. To this day, most are still unopened in their original plastic wrap. I no longer have a disc player in any of my computers, nor any functional discman left in my possession, so listening/ripping them is probably never going to happen.

Sometimes I see people complaining about digital versions, but looking back, it probably really don’t matter nearly as much for vast majority of the cases…

If you’ve skimmed over the original publication, it is actually worse: it is a non problem. Other users have pointed out already: ~100MB served over 5 minutes period is quite literally nothing for even one small VPS serving the content independently, let alone a site with CloudFlare in front like they claim to have.

chiisana,
@chiisana@lemmy.chiisana.net avatar

Or 4) Ignore noise and do nothing; this is a case of user talking about things they don’t understand at best, or a blog intentionally misleading others to drum up traffic for themselves at worst. This is literally not a problem. Serving that kind of traffic can be done on a single server without any CDN and they’ve got a CDN already.

AWS charges $0.09/GB. Even assuming zero caching and always dynamically requested content, you’d need 100x this “attack” to rack up $1 in bandwidth fees. There are way faster ways to rack up bandwidth fees. I remember the days where I paid $1/GB of egress on overage, and even then, this 100MB would’ve only set me back $0.15 at worst.

Also worth noting that those who’d host on AWS isn’t going to blink at $1 in bandwidth fees; they’d be hosting else where that offers cheaper egress (I.e. billed by megabits or some generous fixed allocation); those that are more sane would be serving behind CDNs that’d be even cheaper.

This is a non-issue written by someone who clearly doesn’t know what they’re talking about, likely intended to drum up traffic to their site.

chiisana,
@chiisana@lemmy.chiisana.net avatar

Fortunately, you’d be very hard pressed to find bandwidth pricing from 18 years ago.

The point is the claimed issue is really a non issue, and there are much more effective ways to stress websites without needing the intermediary of fediverse.

If you’re feeling that it will take too much time to maintain something you’re deploying, then there may also be toolset/skillset mismatch. Take Docker/K8s that you’ve called out for example; they’re the graduated steps to deploy things in the industry. Things deployed via Docker drastically reduces the amount of time to get up and running by eliminating large swaths of dependency management, as well as gives option to use tools on platform to manage self updates if that’s something desired (though this could potentially introduce failures by manual upgrade steps where required). You’d graduate to k8s as your infrastructure footprints start to grow. Learning the correct tools could potentially reduce the barrier to entry and time requirements on the apps front.

Having said that, it is probably better to ask the inverse: what is it that you’re trying to achieve and why?

Without a reason that resonates well with you, you’re not going to find time in your allegedly already life to maintain to keep it working. Nor will you be willing to find the time to learn the correct tools to deploy these things.
