In-reply-to » Okay so I have no clue about Rust nor am I a very proficient programmer, but surely this is even more of a joke than this repo portrays it to be? It can't actually be this ridiculous to make a hello world in Rust surely 😅

@movq@www.uninformativ.de LOL, well that is much more reasonable 😄

But yeah @prologic@twtxt.net, I am finally just starting to learn Go actually. It’s surprised me, from what I’ve seen, how simple some things can be on the web development side. For example something like the Gin web framework (example), things are happening in less boilerplate than often what I’ve seen in PHP frameworks etc which I didn’t expect.

In-reply-to » F***CK! Why can't I ever solve that damn reCAPTCHA?!?!?! 🤬

@justamoment I find sometimes I have to open up whatever is guarded by reCaptcha in a barebones Chromium instance. I normally use the Brave browser but I think all the privacy guarding stuff trips up the captcha. I have a lot more luck with captcha solving in stock Chromium.

That said, reCaptcha is the absolute devil!

In-reply-to » I just posted this on LinkedIn in response to a survey from a colleague of mine asking whether ChatGPT should be credited as a co-author on papers:

Yeah, AI this, AI that, it’s almost smothering anywhere you go in the tech news world.

It’s going to be like the internet in general - has a heap of hype and dreams about how it will make life easier/better in various ways… and then get used and abused by Big Tech to invade our privacy and make society worse.

In-reply-to » Google's Secret New Project Teaches AI To Write and Fix Code Google is working on a secretive project that uses machine learning to train code to write, fix, and update itself. From a report: This project is part of a broader push by Google into so-called generative artificial intelligence, which uses algorithms to create images, videos, code, and more.

In-reply-to » Still alive, just a lot going on. Until I fix my RPi, using this Pod as my primary. ;)

@prologic@twtxt.net hey mate, I’m okay. Just been busy with work and personal life (and keeping warm lol). I haven’t been up to much in cyberspace TBH. But I see Yarn.social keeps getting some nice little touches every time I come on and actually do a yarnd update. How’s the community kicking along? Haven’t seen @fastidious@twtxt.net in the latest feeds unless he’s going by another name so guessing he’s moved onto other ventures.

In-reply-to » Welp, the SD card must be corruption-happy on my RPi, the below quoted Yarn doesn't even show on that pod anymore 😅

Welp, the SD card must be corruption-happy on my RPi, the below quoted Yarn doesn’t even show on that pod anymore 😅

Might be a bit before I can update this Pod, not because of any issue with yarnd, but because, I think, my SD card must be dying in the RPi 🙃
Getting lots of file corruption errors, the thing can’t even download update archives from apt without them becoming corrupted or incomplete lol.

In-reply-to » My yarn.andrewjvpowell.com Pod will be out for a bit, couple of rather cloudy days so letting the battery recover today 😊

@david@netbros.com Yeah, I’ve had a really good run, going weeks at a time without even having to think about it, but if I happen to get a few cloudy days in succession it can be a bit dicey sometimes! My battery isn’t actually in the greatest health and will need to be replaced at some point, but it’s fine for now.

@prologic@twtxt.net How do you mean? 🤔

In-reply-to » 👋 @jlj @eldersnake I rolled out a new experimental feature to improve the Onboarding experience for new users called "Internal Events" -- Enable with internal_events. Currently the messaging is a bit hard-coded, but we can iterate on making that configurable (TODOs in the code).

Works 👌

Wondering if the ‘twtxt’ bot should be called something else though? 🤔

@prologic@twtxt.net Very skeptical, for sure.

In-reply-to » PSA: my personal pod (yarn.andrewjvpowell.com) will be offline overnight as I've powered off the RPi. Had a couple bad days in terms of weather and the solar voltage is getting a bit on the low side (and I can't be bothered going out and swapping in another battery 🙃).
