Recent twts from stutteringsteve

I’m finally beginning to delve into containers on Linux, after many years of assuming (since 2014) that containerization would be just another bygone, short-lived trend in IT history. This was such poor judgement on my part. I’m starting off with Podman outright.

I do wish introduction articles and other related content pertaining to containerization and orchestration (Kubernetes) were explained in plain English. I know I’ll eventually understand this particular technical jargon that some DevOps people have zealously published online thus far.

Goddamned Californians, depriving us of even our interpersonal relationships, and for your monetary gain.

I did, and I believe a TPM 2.0 module is what’s required at this rate, but additional details would be nice to have, just as a confirmation of sorts. Considering that this installer can display this message, it should not be out of the realm of possibility to programmatically print a list of what’s required within the same window.

From @todd-davies at Hacker News:

Perhaps allowing Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram to merge was efficient after all - now that they have synchronized outages, people finally have a chance to get on with their lives, free of clickbait news and misinformation.

Agreed.

It just occurred to me that I cannot play M3U playlist files on iOS, not even from within VLC. Once again (but worth iterating), these smartphones are built as mere appliances and do not behave as real computers. It’s the little things such as this that irritate me about this form factor.

@movq (#wxpxwia) Precisely! 2007, with the introduction of smartphones, was the very beginning of, in my opinion, the software and hardware industry’s decline; from user-hostile interfaces and planned obsolescence, to boundless tracking and everything in between. They really began to rear their ugly heads sometime after 2012, when flatness and bright colors became the stylistic standard across tech. I believe the rise of this stylistic standard has been tech’s attempt to seem (disingenuously) innocuous at face value while hiding their true intentions.

In-reply-to > Reading over Hacker News, I was not previously aware of server-side tagging (tracking). The engineers working for that Mountain View, CA business are clever bastards, I will give them that. It illustrates their disrespect towards those who wish not to be tracked and their determination to impose themselves by any possible means. I will do my best to circumvent that technology, also. Surveillance capitalism must not succeed.

@adi I’m working on Gemini support at the moment. I’m rewriting mkws in such a way to work with both Gemini and WWW content with ease. ;)

(#wxpxwia) I want to figure out how to determine who has implemented this technology on their web servers and forever boycott them thereafter. I’m going to begin practicing a no-javascript policy, with exception of select few websites, and closing unnecessary accounts, even at the cost of convenience.

In the meantime, I have begun to migrate most of my website over to the new Gemini protocol, which has been deliberately designed to account for the World Wide Web’s privacy shortcomings and prevent tracking from advertising companies.
