So, again I woke up to find 28,766 restored tweets
After deleting all 38,000 tweets in November
After redeleting 34,000 tweets a month ago
This morning 28,766 came back
This IS a breach of the EU rules on data processing
Please boost asap, don't like it, boost it
@ludovic I was surprised how much I liked the show. I think there is a S3 right? If so, I haven't seen it yet.
Surprisingly I even liked the Reese Witherspoon character and I usually can't stand her on screen.
Kinda wanting to install my own lemmy and slowly build up my subs in the hopes to eventually replace my reddit experience. Because I really do enjoy reading my subs on various totally obscure topics
@boyter You got it!
@boyter Looks like an interesting lib. I'll throw it into the mix when the need arises.
@knapjack @rob @carusb Thanks for the reminder about Daemon, what a fantastic book! I think I'll re-read it as it's been a few years.
@dave Yea, in those cases you have to merge carefully. I've had to carefully re-merge more than once after breaking my honk.
@dave Ruh roh.. I haven't had any issues. Do you have any 3rd party patches pulled in?
@KenRos Boycott worked.
@KenRos It's official!!!!
@KenRos could it be....??
Jeff Carlisle is confirming it:
LFG!!!! Now let's get Vanney out
@tedu Unfortunately it doesn't work that way for a lot of us. Especially if you're outside the US. I click the download button and my tv gives an error.
I had to watch Succession on my iPad via VPN like a total weenie.
@tedu This explains so much from my time on Bumble.
How do I know the Succession ending was great? Because I hated it! Will miss this show. #succession #hbo
@AndrewHacks Too annoying to go through that.
Have a good Wednesday, also known as Mittwoch, also known as Wodin's Day.
Have a London derrière to cheer you up.
@knapjack Good call, maybe cheapo Amazon is the way to go. I live in Central America and the thrift stores here won't have any tech gear (or, I'd be shocked if they did). Thanks for the tips!
@signal9 Thanks! I am a fan of Logitech so I'll check it out. Though since I only use it for the occasional meeting where I need to show my mug I may go for a cheaper (assuming it's more expensive lol) option.
@ifrit Thanks! I'll check it out.
Anyone with a web cam recommendation? Must be Linux friendly. My built in camera died a month or so ago and this ThinkPad x1c6 may be old but still works perfectly (sans camera) so I don't want to trade this old thing in just yet.
Meta's new Twitter rival will talk with Mastodon (via ActivityPub, assumed?). This is an interesting development.
Not that we need/want Meta in the space but it could be a driver.
@tedu diff, diff but same.
I remember once getting flak for sharing the German quip of "if there’s a Nazi at the table and 10 other people sitting there talking to him, you got a table with 11 Nazis."
I hope those critics look at Florida and other fashy states and realize that this is what happens when you tolerate fascism at any level.
@rysiek Right about now that sounds like a good trip. Though the older I get, I need more time between trips. Living out of a suit case gets less and less fun.
@AndrewHacks yea it was! Nearly a decade ago now, crazy huh. How could we have ever thought back then that I'd be living here now.
Visiting Europe was cool and all but nothing beats returning home to Nicaragua, leaving the airport, only to have the 11pm heat & humidity sucker punch the wind right out of you.
Welcome home indeed.

Mass shootings are so common, I didn't even hear about this recent one in New Mexico:
@knapjack @tedu Hah, I actually don't know what a few buttons do. I should follow that code at some point.
@knapjack shrugs LOL
I've been writing Go 95% of the time for the last couple of years.
I've got a py2 codebase for a pretty useful app I need to port to py3.
I've forgotten a lot of what that entails.
Time to dust off the upgrade manuals.
If this is true, that prime-time Trump infomercial was an even more shameful act of journalistic malpractice on CNN's part than was previously understood.
Allowing audience members to applaud - but not boo or express disapproval - doesn't report the story, it materially alters it. It creates the false impression that Trump and his odious policies and behavior are more popular than they are.
This whole story is absolutely wild, and far beyond NSOGroup type capabilities. And the telecom industry is itself complicit.
"Global Surveillance: The Secretive Swiss Dealer Enabling Israeli Spy Firms"
I feel seen.
@pronto Neat dude.
@pronto Go much higher than you think. Value your time appropriately.
rm templates/* and quickly realized my error. A second of panic before
hg revert -Ca brought me back to my senses.
(not to worry, I had no other pending changes that reverting would affect)
Moral being, I've got 25+ years using *nix, coding, etc. and still do stupid shit all the time. Use tools that will save you whenever feasible.
“Proposed Texas Law Wants to Make School Children 'Battlefield' Ready
In response to school shootings, a new bill in Texas would require public schools to install "bleeding stations" and train kids as young as third grade in trauma care.”
This is grotesque.
The United States of America is a war zone.
The children are hostages.
The terrorists are hiding behind the hostages.
The terrorists are the Republicans.
The NRA funds terrorism.
Only you can end this.
@tedu That's what I thought. I'll keep an eye on it in the future and next time I see if I'll save details and try to reproduce.
@tedu is it just me or are you and other honkers seeing this? Trying to import from the xzone seems to fail more often than not, but using the new search import option works for those that failed.
The Clarence Thomas bribery scandal widens:
—Leonard Leo and his organization had business before the Supreme Court.
—They sent large sums of money to Clarence Thomas’s wife.
—They deliberately removed her name from the paperwork.
It’s time for the US Attorney to open a bribery investigation. https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/2023/05/04/leonard-leo-clarence-ginni-thomas-conway/
The contents of libraries are being treated as more dangerous to kids than massacres.
@horia I assure you I didn't write it. Either way, Napoli is like the Berlin of Italy, graffiti isn't disliked here.
#Naples was waiting for me.
(see if you can find the shit stain a friendly pigeon left for me on my jeans)
My daughter wrote a new thing:
#writers #writerscommunity #writer
God I love football. The #Naples fans were so wild last night. Energy was nuts.
Currently in #Naples, #Italy. The local football team just needs 1 point to lock in their Serie A championship. They just tied the score (giving the the championship if the score stays the same). The city is MADNESS! Love it!
@raichoo The 6 book series is probably my all time favorite set of books. Luckily the movies aren't disappointing either.

@AndrewHacks @lowqualityfacts Commie bastards!
@KenRos are you in ACB by any chance?
@tedu So much irk!
Really not trying to hate on your lunch but I'm pretty sure mine was better.

In a 1999 interview on The Diane Rehm Show, Berners-Lee was asked why he never cashed in.
The question, when it's posed like that, it implies that you really only measure people's value by their net worth," he said. "People are what they've done, what they say, what they stand for, rather than what they happen to have in the bank.
@AndrewHacks pizza, pizza and more pizza. Sums it up basically.
And yea nica is better imho but not the airport heh
@pronto @dallendoug and were already buzzed I imagine. You're #unixgods after all.
Current view of #Madrid from my hotel. Off to #Valencia tomorrow.
@knapjack I personally wouldn't mind being able to link other's posts. I personally don't care about receiving likes on my own though.
The new lounge in the San Salvador airport expansion is nicer, with better food, than most lounges in much larger, more "worldly" cities. Super impressed!
NitroKey disappoints me...
Smartphones using the Snapdragon 630 chip were found to call home to Qualcomm without the consent of the user, bypassing the whole operating system. Data includes unique hardware ID, current IP, country, your ISP, list of installed apps and other data.
It is send unencrypted and gets combined with data broker profiles.
As usual, big IT companies don't give a flying fart about any laws, their customers or ethics in general. Who would've guessed. 😔 #privacy #security
In case you were unaware, RT, aka Russia Today, is the propaganda arm of Putin’s authoritarian government. They appear to have an Instance on Mastodon. I’ve blocked them. You may want to share this information and block them too.

My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell ordered to pay $5M for the Prove Mike Wrong challenge. Evidence provided was just random numbers and letters haha. Apparently team Lindell claimed it was the capture of the traffic for THE ENTIRE INTERNET during a set period hahha.
RT/Russia Today no longer has a “state-affiliated media” label.
Nice job, Elmo. You’re really doing great on this rapidly-declining shitshow.
@rysiek I don't. Thanks for the recommendation. If you're ever back in that way, you have to go to Chef Amadeo in Gandia (about 45 minute train ride south of Valencia). It's only open during the summer months but the paella is life changing.
Once you go #honk, you never go back.
Twitter quietly edited its hateful conduct policy to drop transgender protections https://arstechnica.com/?p=1933162 #tech
@rysiek Hey at least Lisbon and Porto are great spots! I really really liked Lisbon when I went.
Valencia is fantastic but mainly going again to visit my daughter who lives there now.
Naples; I refuse to visit this part of Europe and not head to Naples. My favorite city in Italy and one of my favorite cities period.Plus, pizza for lunch & dinner.
Palermo I've never been to so excited for a new spot to explore.
@AndrewHacks wake up!
Oh and to the ahole's DDoSing SourceHut, please eat a fat <whatever you find vulgar and disgusting>!
Every time I read the US news I reaffirm that moving to the second poorest country in the western hemisphere (aka, the third world) was the best decision I could have made, safety wise at least.
I'm still amazed that people would pay for a blue check mark on
Anyone I know in Valencia (Spain), Naples (Italy) or Palermo (Sicily)? If so, I'll be heading out there in the coming weeks and we should get a beer or something.

If you installed a Linux system with disk encryption more than a couple of years ago, there's a decent chance it's using a weak key derivation function and someone who cares enough would be in a position to brute-force it. https://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/66429.html has more details and instructions on how to update to a better KDF.
@KenRos Me too. We're still win less. We suffer now or continue to suffer for many more years to come. Best to rip this band-aid off and hopefully rebuild.
@KenRos Expected ending and now we can no longer claim that LAFeCes hasn't won at the diggs. Whatever. As bad as it sounds, this season needs to be a total cluster so that #KleinOut happens. I'm also all for Vanney out at this point after his comments saying we're just bs noise and trying to rely on missed VAR calls from 2 years ago! This entire chain needs to be gone.
@KenRos Read that Chris Klein and his boss met with ACB leadership and BEGGED them to go to the game this weekend LOL. The next day they had Chica call the president of ACB. They better not fold! #KleinOut
NPR's operating budget is $300 M, and 1%, or $3 M is funded by federal subsidies
The LA Times calculates the federal subsidies Musk's companies have received at $4.9 B.
Let's be generous and say Musk received those subsidies over a 10 year period, while NPR would have received ~$30 M in subsidies.
4.9 B / 30 M = Musk received 163x what NPR has from "the state."
Who is state funded then?
#elonmusk #npr #twitter
@horia @gonzalo I believe @benjojo has a patch that will accept mp4's. Check his repo.
@KenRos It's funny because it's true. It's all true :(
Hey #freebsd fedi, question - is it a good idea to jump from 12.2 to 13.2. I've got a few non-critical systems still running 12.2 and I'd like to avoid updating multiple times.
Hah, this is great!
@KenRos He's saying if the Galaxy DON'T make the playoffs, he'll resign (which was always the plan, BS).
Of course he's thinking we're stupid because the playoff format changes this season, making it a lot more likely the Galaxy make the playoffs because basically only 2 teams per conference won't make it (MLS is so stupid).
The supporter groups aren't buying it. Stay strong and boycott those clowns until #KleinOUT
@KenRos you see the Klein email to season ticket holders? lmfao this guy is a clown! #KleinOut
Ugh, sloppy play led to the Real Madrid goal but Chelsea is holding their own. Had some chances and also got a bit lucky a few times.
Hope they clean it up the second half! Come you blues!
@emersion Is there anything like this for 3rd party srht installs to main srht site? Ie, we don't run builds in our environment but I do pay for srht and may want to use builds for tasks.
The Free Software Foundation is dying
@drewdevault I really hate that the world runs on WhatsApp. Wish I could get away with not using it
@benjojo Oh nice! I'll have to pull those changesets over. Thanks!
@tedu Oh come on! I hope they don't make the spicy less mild. That's why there's three levels but imho, the spicy isn't spicy enough.
@benjojo Oh cool! You added mp4 support.
(I dunno where this was originally mimeographed/faxed from)
@knapjack Go little honker, go!
@tedu I'll skip it then unless the final episodes pull off a miracle.
Holy damn this is wild

@tedu Soooo... watch or no?
@drewdevault Hah, I figured but hey, you asked for weekend projects. I've been meaning to get to this anyway. I already have a bridge running just for hg and integrated via webhooks so I sort of just need to learn how git/hub do it and crowbar my way in there I guess.
@tedu NY Post? I guess I can see him has a reader of that.
