It's weird seeing the sheer amount of hate @drewdevault gets any time one of his blog posts is posted, well, anywhere.

DZ: Crazy Canada Doctor

DZ: Crazy Canada Doctor

The Canadian government says it is urgently trying to end the forced sterilization of Indigenous women, describing the practice as a human rights violation and a prosecutable offense. Yet police say they will not pursue a criminal investigation into a recent case in which a doctor apologized for his “unprofessional conduct” in sterilizing an Inuit woman.

I've been away from social media for a week and I come back to a bunch of posts about guys thinking about Rome. I just happened to watch Angels and Demons yesterday. Coincidence or conspiracy?

I'm arriving in Costa Rica tomorrow and will be surfing all the breaks in and around #Tamarindo for the next week. If any other fedi folk are in the area, hit me up and let's drink a beer.

Want to wish a very happy birthday do my long time friend @AndrewHacks! He put the G in Google for 8 years and now I don't know wtf he does but he's still the nerdiest G of all time.

PS, sorry if this is a double honk haha. First one should have been previewed properly first.

I've loved powerlifting style weight training for a very long time. I was never crazy serious about it but I could move respectable weight for a hobbyist.

About 8.5 years ago I lost my focus during a deadlift that was way heavier than I should have been doing and really hurt my back. I had trouble walking normally for like 6 months.

So for a long time I was afraid to really push things. Then I got a bit lazier, then covid really turned me into a flabby bastard. I decided by the end of this year I wanted to do 3 things:

1. Squat 315+ again
2. Bench 235+
3. Deadlift 405+

Today I squatted 315 for 5 reps (though the last 2 had the slightest of help from the spotter).

I know it's not a lot but at 43 years old, feels good to hit 3 plates again.

I believe I'll hit my deadlift goal (currently repping 365 for 5 without issue) but I really doubt I can make my bench goal (about 205 at the moment but upper body has always been very hard for me to progress). Let's see how the rest of the year plays out.

Woah. Just logged into Twitter (whatever) for the first time in a while and my home feed is 90% accounts I don't follow or topics I have no interest in. How can people still use it? It's pure spam now.

@tedu I never saw that in LA but where I live now in Managua, Nicaragua, they'll stuff spare tires, large tree branches, big rocks in these massive pot holes in the street. Mainly to call attention to avoid this because otherwise people will drive right into it and blow their tires. Plus it's a poor country so repairs usually come days, or weeks, later.

@ols As someone who is in the hair removal with wax business, I can say it's not really recommended to wax your nose hairs. We don't offer it as a service in our salons on purpose because there are potentially serious side effects (just think, very sensitive area, thin skin, prone to ingrown hairs, infections near the brain)

Guess who's got tickets to see Luis Miguel in February in #Managua #Nicaragua..... This guy!

For those of you outside of Latin America, this tour is a big deal. Gonna be a f'n blast!!!

Lemmy took me like 45 minutes or so to build from source and a couple of days to get it configured right and federating, etc.

Today I spent a total of 10 minutes getting Azorius setup. About 25 seconds of that was build time (because it was the first time building it, had to download modules, etc.) Subsequent builds take around 3-6 seconds.

So much better and the load on my VPS dropped to normal levels again. Lemmy is a resource hog.

Moral of the story, give Azorius a try.

I think I need to figure out how to get my WhatsApp stickers into the emu storage of #honk. Missing out on too many useful sticker situations here.

petersanchez honked 10 Aug 2023 23:04 +0000

Now running #honk version 1.0. Thanks to @tedu and everyone else who has contributed to the project.

A better name

I think the problem is that people are programmed into a single service mentality. Mastodon is just software that runs along side dozens of other software applications that all speak ActivityPub.

I don't think of it as a better Twitter but more of a different micro-blogging / social interaction experience. Of course I'm coming at it from the tech perspective which most users, even tech savvy ones, wouldn't get or necessarily care.

I’d love to build on top of Mastodon, but its protocol design is intimidating.

Are you referring to the Mastodon (software) API or the ActivityPub protocol it's built on top of?

Anyone out there running #alpine #linux edge on your daily driver? Just curious how the experience has been. I don't think I'll make the switch from stable but I wouldn't mind some real world feedback.

Insecure (#HBO show) is on #Netflix now (at least here in #Nicaragua). If you don't have HBO or haven't seen it, I recommend it. It's pretty funny and shows a lot of Los Angeles that most people from out of town would never see. It's off the usual tourist path and TV/Movies only show trendy parts or when they need to show minorities, the extreme ghettos.

Thanks to the good folks in #haskell / libera.chat I now have a freshly built version of matterhorn running on Alpine. My list of fixit's is slowly dwindling.

petersanchez honked 02 Aug 2023 20:29 +0000

Hi @jvoisin - Ran into this matterhorn issue you opened and saw that your MR was never merged.

Also there is no matterhorn alpine package now. Building it is failing for me so I need to debug it but I'm totally new to Haskell so just figured I'd ask if you had any tips to get it to build on alpine (3.18.2).

Really enjoyed Oppenheimer. It was long as hell but it didn't feel long or like it dragged on too much.

Acting was fantastic all around. Even the dude who played the dunce on Lilliehammer was good! He was probably my favorite surprise of the movie

I'll do a thread tomorrow on the X dot com/Paypal merger because I think it's really important to understand how that went down to know why Musk is STILL salty about how X died (and about Peter Thiel) now.

But in the meantime, here is a quick, but telling, story called:

That Time Elon Totalled his McLaren F1 While Trying to Show Off in Front of Peter Thiel /1 🧵 #history #technology

I rarely suggest paid software for the Linux desktop but man, Master PDF Editor 5 is so damn good. Worth the cost imho.

petersanchez honked 21 Jul 2023 21:19 +0000

Any recommendations for good #InfoSec #podcasts? Specifically for those who are more knowledgeable/experienced? Ones like Darknet Diaries are fine but I find the over the top hand holding to be a little annoying.

@tedu Yea, I agree it can be annoying. Often, but not terribly often, a conversation goes from replies to private messaging.

For instance, I have some real estate projects going on and it's normal for people on r/* to want to take things to private messaging to continue the conversation.

It can be useful but I suppose in those cases maybe it's best to just give out my actual email to continue.

#azorius 0.1 is done. Link, laugh, love!

I wrote a full blog post to read should you care. Covers some more of the background, design and future.

As for the az1 instance, I'm going to leave it up for a little longer, then restart without the subdomain.

If you ran a prerelease version and at any point had to run sqlite3 to fix the database, please discard and start again. There's some other minor damage to the database that will cause chaos later. Moving forward, there will be a database upgrade command. (I was going to increase the dbVersion for release just in case, but forgot.)

Watched "The Whale" last night. Holy sh*t. What a good flick and pretty painful to watch. Some of those eating scenes made me grossed out but also weirdly jealous.

Am I reading this right? $69 per MONTH for the FINANCIAL TIMES? Maybe I need to be in finance to get the pricing but... what? I pay like $15/mo for WSJ and even that is pushing it!

Financial Times is $69 per month
