They (sdf) can be as selective as they wish, because I don't care. They have nothing to trade with me.
I already have remote ssh shell accounts and I already have web servers galore. They can be as bitchy and small as they want: I don't care. Eff them.
They just drove me further from bsd into the arms of the gpl as if the calgarian hadn't already done the job.
I don't care. It's meh as far as I'm concerned. Later.
I'll just give more money to mastodon.club/about
I don't care.

"Three adult fruit flies have been detected on mainland Tasmania in a prime fruit growing area on the state's north-west coast."

They are so common here, we wouldn't bother to count them? That was a weird headline for me to read!


When they show up in my house, it's the old vinegar and soap routine.

I HATE the 12hr clock!!! Who thought not numbering the hours was a good idea? Are we short of integers somewhere in the world? Maximum of 12 and no more?? Lazy clock makers?

Got this email:

"the 24th at 10:40

and back march 24th at 10:00

would you be able to take me and pick me up?"

Make me guess???? There are flights at either 10h00 or 22h00...

I've only ever done it from a linux box. I have a win10 box beside me just now (I take them home to configure) and have the linux extensions and bash installed, but that isn't going to emulate PuTTY for you on w/e version of ms you are using.
On the physical box I'm on (not one I'm already shelled into!), I run the -D line. Then just config a manual proxy in my browser to match the port number as shown in the screenshot I supplied earlier.

lastweektonight was interesting. I didn't realize there were so many embassies without diplomats. Many are quite key.
To me trump is a step beyond boris and I couldn't understand how he got into office either.

@vfrmedia@social.tchncs.de did you use -D 9999 (or w/e port) via ssh? I use contabo and it is allowed no problem.

@ChristinaO@mastodon.cloud I paypalled them at xmass, but i didn't do it to validate, just to donate -- I just read the validate cmd output this afternoon.

Are you validated at sdf? Can you validate me? I'm gemlog there too. I know we joined at the same time. @ChristinaO@mastodon.cloud

Thank you generous people of the fediverse for allowing our small extraterritorial, sovereign, quasi-national entity to be part of your world.

Well. After a long eve of discussing cob homes, rocket stoves and timber frame construction with my boy... I'm going to turn in myself.

@ChristinaO@mastodon.cloud this is a horribly interesting little book. I've gone over 40 pages already 'just having a look in'.

What the Thinker thinks, the Prover proves is quite a powerful observation and explains a lot of silly behaviour.

By its binary nature it ,perforce, can't explain everything, but it explains a good chunk of my confusion with consciousness.

I went upstairs to get a bit of nosh.

I came back downstairs and Do no turn off your computer and Updating crap on the screen. Did I tell it to do that? No. Did it ask me to do that? No.
What a piece of shit is microsoft. I'm so glad I only get paid to use it. What utter garbage.
Please keep Apple and Microsoft a thousand light years away from my own personal computer, which will happily run on bsd and linux.

You should digitize the stuff on iron oxide post haste.

@AnnaGerber@bne.social but did you do more with the theme of that first one?

So I have the win10 box I'll use for accounting at this one client's 3 mornings a week for a few hours. I added ubuntu and and ssh in home/gemlog. I can ssh into all my remote servers now from that place using linux under win10! :-) mc, ssh, rsync and cron work (haven't tested cron yet actually, but it responds to crontabe -e/-l).
If that last bit is true, I'll be worry free for a long, long time, because I use rsync snapshots on the linux side of the network and then boost them offsite to more.

re Linux’izing your Windows PC into a dev machine

I have now done this up to the x11 bit.

iotop and iftop install but fail to run.
htop and mc do install and run as normal, but htop only shows the bash processes and nothing from win10, which is a disappointment. I'd get the same from a vm ffs.
However, mc is showing me the real win10 file system, so that's a leg up right there.
Ssh and rsync would make me quite happy and those are my next steps. After that I have mere dreams...
